  1. Honey and Barry Sherman, Chairman and CEO of Apotex Inc., are shown at the annual United Jewish Appeal fundraiser in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, August 24, 2010. Photo: The Globe and Mail TORONTO: Canadian police said they are investigating the mysterious deaths of the billionaire founder of Canadian pharmaceutical firm Apotex Inc, Barry Sherman, and his wife, Honey, who were found dead in their Toronto mansion on Friday. The two were found dead after police responded to a medical call just before noon (1700 GMT) at their home in an affluent section of northeast Toronto. ?The circumstances of their death appear suspicious and we are treating it that way,? said Constable David Hopkinson. Homicide detectives later told reporters gathered outside the home that there were no signs of forced entry. Two bodies covered in blankets were removed from the home and loaded into an unmarked van on Friday evening. The property is listed for sale for nearly C$7 million ($5.4 million). Sherman, 75, founded privately held Apotex in 1974. He stepped down as chief executive in 2012, but remained as executive chairman. Forbes has estimated his net worth at $3.2 billion. Apotex employs 11,000 people and is the world?s seventh largest generic drugmaker, according to its website. Toronto Mayor John Tory said in statement that he was ?shocked and heartbroken? to learn of the deaths, and noted the couple had made extensive contributions to the city. ?Toronto Police are investigating, and I hope that investigation will be able to provide answers for all of us who are mourning this tremendous loss,? he said. Other politicians echoed that sentiment. ?I am beyond words right now,? Ontario health minister Eric Hoskins said in a tweet.?My dear friends Barry and Honey Sherman have been found dead. Wonderful human beings, incredible philanthropists, great leaders in health care. A very, very sad day.? Apotex says it is the largest Canadian-owned pharmaceutical firm, with annual sales of more than C$2 billion. It has operations in more than 45 countries, including the United States.
  2. A soldier patrols next to an area where a man wielding a knife was shot by military police before being taking into custody at the Schiphol Airport. ? AFP Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, Netherlands: Dutch military police on Friday shot and wounded a man armed with a knife, who burst into their office at Amsterdam?s busy Schiphol airport, police told AFP. "This afternoon a man came into the office of the Marechaussee (military police) here at Schiphol and threatened my colleagues with a knife," said police spokesman Dennis Muller. "He was shot in the leg and taken to hospital in Amsterdam." The incident triggered panic on the airport?s vast plaza, which is crisscrossed by thousands of people every day making their way to and from the departures and arrivals halls. A worker at a fast food shop told AFP she saw a man "waving a knife around" before hearing a single shot. "It was a scary thing to see him waving his knife around," said the worker, who refused to be identified. Schiphol airport is one of Europe?s top five busiest air hubs, handling a record 63.6 million passengers in 2016, up from 58 million in 2015. Muller told AFP the military police did not know the man or anything about him. "He seemed to be a confused person," Muller said, adding "our investigators are on the scene to try and determine exactly what his motives were." The cavernous plaza, where trains arrive underground and where people can also stop to shop or eat in a large commercial area, was briefly evacuated. But the airport tweeted later that the plaza was "reopened to the public again although a small part remained closed. "Air traffic is experiencing no further consequences," it added. ?Shots being fired? AFP correspondents saw that the police office and the Starbucks coffee shop next door had been cordoned off with red-and-white tape, and green-and-white screens guarded by heavily armed military police had been erected to shield the area from curious onlookers. "At this stage, the situation has returned back to normal. Trains are running again, and planes are departing from the airport," Muller said. In a mobile phone video broadcast on the Dutch broadcaster NOS, a man is heard shouting "there are shots being fired" then the sound of three shots echoing in the plaza. A hospital gurney with someone on it is then seen being wheeled along outside the airport, surrounded by emergency workers. One cafe worker interviewed by the NOS said everyone "was in a terrible panic" and some of the clients had even sought shelter in their kitchen. Tom Boelen, general manager of next door restaurant Per Tutti, said he was told by his staff that there was a shooting happening. "They heard several shots and some of them ran for the exit, while others ran into the kitchen," he told AFP. Past scares Opened in 1916 as a military airport, Schiphol became the country?s primary airport in 1949, lying about nine kilometres (five miles) southwest of the Dutch capital, Amsterdam. It serves as the second main hub for Air France-KLM, and also hosts many budget airlines such as Transavia and EasyJet. The Netherlands has so far been spared from the slew of terror attacks which have rocked its closest European neighbours in past years. But amid a number of scares in recent months, and reports that people linked to some of the attacks may have crossed briefly into the country, concerned top Dutch security and intelligence officials, who have been keeping a wary eye on events. Schiphol was the scene of a late-night evacuation in April 2016 just a few weeks after the Brussels metro and airport suicide bombings when a drunken, homeless man sparked a security scare at the Dutch airport. And in November 2016, Rotterdam airport was then the target of a reported terror threat, which also turned out to be false.
  3. File MADRID: Three people, including two national police officers, were killed in a shooting at a country house in eastern Spain on Thursday, officials said. "Two civil guards and a civilian" died during the incident at an isolated home in a rural area of the Teruel province around 1700 GMT, a local official told AFP. Authorities did not confirm whether any arrest had been made and at 2000 GMT a police operation was continuing in the villages of Andorra and Albalate del Arzobispo.
  4. MOGADISHU: A suicide bomber in a police uniform blew himself up inside a police training camp in Somalia´s capital Mogadishu on Thursday, killing at least 13 police officers, officials said. Police spokesman Major Mohamed Hussein said the attacker, with explosives strapped to his body, infiltrated the General Kahiye Police Training Academy and struck during a police parade. Abdikadir Abdirahman, the director of Amin Ambulances, told Reuters: "We have carried 13 dead people and fifteen others who were injured from the police academy." The militant group al Shabaab claimed responsibility for the attack. "We will give details of casualties later," said Abdiasis Abu Musab, the group´s military operations spokesman. Al Shabaab carries out frequent bombings in Mogadishu and other towns. It is waging an insurgency against the UN-backed government and its African Union allies in a bid to topple the weak administration. The militants were driven out of Mogadishu in 2011 and have since been steadily losing territory to the combined forces of African Union peacekeepers and Somali security forces.
  5. KARACHI: Police recovered a sizeable cache of arms and ammunition during a raid in Karachi early Thursday, officials said. The law enforcers, together with intelligence personnel, raided a shop in Orangi Town's Sector L-12, said SP Abid Baloch said. The shop had been lying closed for a year. Baloch said police recovered three Kalashnikovs, handguns and hundreds of live rounds hidden inside the shop. Police said they also found flags a political party inside the shop. Officials say they suspect the arms have been used in various terror activities and will get their forensic test conducted.
  6. New York Police Department officers stand guard near Port Authority Bus Terminal after reports of an explosion in Manhattan, New York DHAKA: Officials in Bangladesh are trying to track down the extended family and any known associates of Akayed Ullah, a Bangladeshi man US authorities say set off a homemade pipe bomb in a crowded New York City commuter hub on Monday. ?Police are looking for his family, but so far they?ve not been able to trace them,? said Abul Khair Nadim, the Chair of Musapur Union council, a local government body in the Chittagong division in southern Bangladesh, where Ullah?s family originally lived. Bangladesh?s police chief told Reuters late on Monday that 27-year-old Ullah had no criminal record in his home country, which he last visited in September. Ullah lived with his mother, sister and two brothers in Brooklyn and was a green card holder, said Shameem Ahsan, consul general of Bangladesh in New York. Ahmad Ullah, a relative of Ullah, who Reuters tracked down on Tuesday, said his cousin?s father had moved to the Bangladeshi capital of Dhaka with his family many years ago. He said Ullah?s father had passed away about five years ago, and that Ullah had been through a normal public school education in Bangladesh before moving to the United States. Explosion rocks New York commuter hub, suspect in custody The suspect ? a US resident with no criminal record ? is from Bangladesh, the country?s police chief said, adding that he last visited his home country on September 8 Ullah, who had a homemade bomb strapped to his body, set off an explosion in an underground pedestrian corridor between New York?s Times Square and the Port Authority Bus Terminal at rush hour, injuring himself and three others in what New York Mayor Bill de Blasio called an attempted terrorist attack. A law enforcement official familiar with the investigation said investigators have found evidence that Ullah had watched Daesh propaganda on the internet. Bangladesh strongly condemned the attack in a statement saying, ?A terrorist is a terrorist irrespective of his or her ethnicity or religion, and must be brought to justice.?
  7. A protest scene from Indian-occupied Kashmir/File photo Indian police arrested a freelance French journalist in Indian-occupied Kashmir for violating visa regulations, the city police chief said, after he was found filming for a documentary without permission. Comiti Paul Edward was arrested late Sunday in the Kothibagh area of Srinagar, Senior Superintendent of Police Imtiyaz Ismael Parray told Reuters. Edward holds an Indian business visa valid until next December, but the visa does not permit him to make a documentary on political or security related issues, the officer said. A case has been registered under the Passport Act and the French embassy has been informed about the arrest, Parray said. Edward was shooting a documentary on occupied Kashmir and had met Hurriyat leader Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, pellet gun victims and captured stone pelting incidents in Srinagar, said a senior police official, who did not wish to be named. More than 3,800 people have been wounded and one killed by shotgun pellets since protests against Indian rule erupted in the occupied territory last year, with more than 100 left partially or fully blinded, official figures show. ?We called him to ask him about his activities, but he refused to present himself before the police. He was not authorized to film here because he was on a business visa. He was finally arrested,? the senior official said. Edward had sought the defense ministry?s permission for filming in Kashmir, but was denied because he was on a business visa, said the police official, who is not authorized to speak to the media. Occupied Kashmir has been at the heart of nearly seven decades of hostility between Pakistan and India.

  11. Police being tested in Multan. Photo: Geo News screen grab MULTAN: One-third of the police force in Multan has been found to be affected by various health conditions, including diabetes and high blood pressure, Hepatitis B and C. A few have also been tested positive for tuberculosis. The Punjab health department screened over 4,000 police personnel and officials during an awareness week in Multan. Out of the 4,606 personnel and officials tested at the three-day screening camp, 873 were found to be diabetic, 250 were suffering from high blood pressure and 247 are affected by Hepatitis C while 129 by Hepatitis B. Besides, there were three from the force who were affected by tuberculosis. Around 400 police personnel did not get themselves screened. When asked, officials in the force told Geo News that the personnel were working day in and day out to fill in for the lack of strength in the force, which is why they were falling ill. However, the officials added, those with ailments will be treated soon and the ones going through critical illnesses will be given early retirement.
  12. Policemen detain a supporter of PAT chief Tahirul Qadri during the Model Town incident in Lahore on June 17, 2014. ? Reuters LAHORE: Justice Baqir Najfi commission, while terming the June 2014 tragedy in Lahore's Model Town as "most unfortunate incident" in the country's history, said that police tried to cover up facts as to who gave orders to open fire on protesters, according to the commission report issued Tuesday. The Government of Punjab, following orders by the Lahore High Court, on Tuesday issued the Justice Baqir Najfi commission report on Model Town incident. The incident in June 2014 had claimed lives of at least 14 people and left over 100 others during an 'anti-encroachment operation' by the police outside Idara Minhajul Quran in Lahore's Model Town. The report says that Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) chief Tahirul Qadri announced a long march from Rawalpindi to Lahore on June 23, 2014. Punjab Law Minister Rana Sanaullah said they would not let Qadri achieve his objectives. It mentions the Lahore commissioner presented a report pertaining to illegal measures of barriers placement and encroachments around Minhajul Quran Secretariat in Lahore to the commission. Authorities decided immediate action for removal of encroachments at a meeting, it mentions. The meeting was attended by Secretary to CM Dr Tauqeer Shah, instead of Punjab CM Shehbaz Sharif. Dr Tauqeer Shah expressed consent over removal of barriers [around Minhajul Quran Secretariat], while a legal opinion regarding the operation was not sought from the Punjab advocate general, the commission said in the report. It says the participants of the meeting were aware of the Lahore High Court verdict in 2011. The report terms the Model Town tragedy an 'unfortunate incident' in the history of Pakistan. The commission further mentioned in its report that the Punjab CM submitted an affidavit stating that he came to know of the incident in the morning of June 17. CM Shehbaz telephoned his secretary, Tauqeer Shah, and ordered immediate withdrawal of police from the scene, the report says. Shah said the orders for withdrawal of police were given by the law minister and home secretary. The report released Tuesday states that staff of Town Municipal Administration (TMA) Gulberg reached Minhajul Quran Secretariat on June 16 for clearing encroachments. It also says the tribunal was not given complete powers in order to reach the core of the incident and that no one is ready to speak as to on whose orders police opened fire. The report describes Model Town tragedy as worst incident of the country's history. Police demonstrated non-seriousness towards unarmed individuals. It would not be wrong to say that efforts were made to conceal the truth by now empowering the tribunal completely, it mentions. All those named, including Shehbaz Sharif, are not innocent with regard to tragedy. Police tried to cover up as to who gave orders for shooting, the report says. The commission recommended that police must not order opening the fire in future without orders by a magistrate. Below is complete inquiry report of the Model Town incident:
  13. England batsman Alex Hales England batsman Alex Hales will not face criminal charges over an incident in Bristol in September and is available for national team selection, the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) said on Monday. The 28-year-old opening batsman was with all-rounder Ben Stokes, who was arrested on suspicion of causing actual bodily harm during an altercation outside a nightclub. The pair were suspended by the ECB from international cricket until further notice. "The ECB Board has convened via conference call to make the decision after being informed that Hales is deemed a witness and will face no charges," the ECB said in a statement. "The independent Cricket Discipline Commission (CDC) has stayed the internal disciplinary process for both Alex Hales and Ben Stokes until the conclusion of any potential criminal proceedings relating to the incident." Hales, who has not played test cricket since last year, is a key member of the England one-day and Twenty20 teams and is now available for the limited-overs part of the Ashes tour which starts in January. The ECB has also cleared Hales to play in the inaugural T10 Cricket League in Dubai this month. Stokes, still suspended by England, is playing domestic cricket for Canterbury in New Zealand.
  14. German authorities investigating the delivery of a package containing powerful firecrackers, wires and nails to a pharmacy near a Christmas market in the city of Potsdam said on Sunday it was criminal activity rather than ?terrorism.? Karl-Heinz Schroeter, interior minister of the state of Brandenburg where Potsdam is located, told a news conference criminals were behind the package which they had used to try to extort millions of euros from logistics firm DHL, which had delivered the package. Police said it was highly likely that the package could have exploded. Staff at the pharmacy in Potsdam, just outside Berlin, called the police on Friday after they discovered the suspicious package. The Christmas market was evacuated and the package was made safe by a police robot. DHL warned the public not to open packages if they did not recognize the sender?s address or if the sender?s address was suspicious. ?As we find ourselves approaching Christmas, which is not only a time of peace, but also a time when many presents are sent, such an act of extortion is reprehensible,? Schroeter told the news conference. He said all efforts were being made to catch those who sent the package. Authorities said the people who sent the package most likely lived in Berlin or in the state of Brandenburg, which surrounds the German capital. They did not say how much money they had demanded, but said they had told DHL they would send more packages that could kill or injure if DHL, owned by Deutsche Post, refused to pay up. Brandenburg police chief Hans-Juergen Moerke said that a QR barcode that can be read using a smart phone was found on a piece of paper inside the package. The extortion letter addressed to DHL was found in the barcode.
  15. A company logo is pictured outside a Gucci store in Vienna, Austria, May 4, 2016. REUTERS/Leonhard Foeger/Files MILAN: Italian tax police have visited the offices of fashion company Gucci for fiscal checks as part of an investigation by Milan prosecutors into suspected tax evasion, a senior source with direct knowledge of the matter said on Saturday. ?Gucci confirms that it is providing its full cooperation to the respective authorities and is confident about the correctness and transparency of its operations,? Gucci said in an e-mailed statement in response to a report about the tax police audit published by Italian daily La Stampa on Saturday. The source with direct knowledge of the matter ? who spoke on condition of anonymity ? said the checks were carried out this week at Gucci?s Milan offices and Florence headquarters. The source said the Milan prosecutors suspected Gucci ? which is part of French luxury group Kering ? may have paid taxes on profits generated by sales in Italy in another country with a more favourable tax regime. The source did not give more details. Gucci ? the biggest contributor to Kering?s profits and revenues ? has enjoyed a revival in recent years, and in the third quarter of 2017 reported a 49.4 percent rise in sales on a like-for-like basis, excluding currency swings. Contacted by Reuters, a spokeswoman for Kering said the group had no further comment.
  16. File Photo KARACHI: Law enforcement agencies (LEAs) shot dead a suspect late Friday night during an alleged encounter in the city's Abyssinia Lines area, they said. The suspect was initially taken into custody in a wounded state following the encounter but succumbed to his injuries. It was unclear whether he died on way to or at the hospital. Police also recovered weapons from the deceased suspect. Body recovered Rescue authorities recovered a dead body near Naala Stop in the metropolis' Orangi Town. The body is yet to be identified.
  17. Police vehicles parked near the Christmas market in Potsdam after a suspicious object prompted its evacuation. -AFP BERLIN: German police on Friday found an "explosive" containing nails close to a Christmas market in Potsdam, reviving fears of a repeat of last year´s terror attack that struck at the height of the festive season. The device was uncovered in a package found at a pharmacy just off the Christmas market in central Potsdam, a picturesque city near Berlin that was once a residence for the kings of Prussia. Police said a pharmacist had sounded the alert after finding a canister with wires inside the package. "Suspicions of an unconventional explosive device have been confirmed," police in Brandenburg state said on Twitter. "There were apparently not only nails but also powder in the canister, and that must be investigated, could it be plaster, or something that doesn´t explode or is it something explosive," said Brandenburg interior minister Karl-Heinz Schroeter. He added that investigators were unlikely to be able to give "binding results" on the device today. After clearing parts of the city centre and Christmas market, bomb disposal units defused the device shortly before 6pm. "It's not easy when you're on the scene, we're shocked," Christmas market organiser Peter Klemm told broadcaster NTV. "But the people here understand what's going on and take the measures very seriously." High alert Germany has been on high alert for possible militant attacks after last December's deadly assault at a Christmas market in central Berlin. The attacker, Tunisian asylum seeker Anis Amri, hijacked a truck and murdered its Polish driver before killing another 11 people and wounding dozens more by ploughing the heavy vehicle through the festive market in the centre of the city. He was shot dead by Italian police in Milan four days later while on the run. Germany has since been targeted again in attacks with terror motives. In July 2017, a 26-year-old Palestinian asylum seeker wielding a knife stormed into a supermarket in the northern port city of Hamburg, killing one person and wounding six others before being detained by passers-by. And at the end of October, German police arrested a 19-year-old Syrian identified only as Yamen A. suspected of planning a "serious bomb attack" using powerful explosives. Daesh also claimed responsibility for a number of attacks in 2016, including the murder of a teenager in Hamburg, a suicide bombing in the southern city of Ansbach that wounded 15, and an axe attack on a train in Bavaria that left five injured. Germany remains a target for militant groups, in particular because of its involvement in the coalition fighting Daesh in Iraq and Syria, and its deployment in Afghanistan since 2001. German troops in the anti-Daesh coalition do not participate in combat operations but support it through reconnaissance, refuelling and training. Germany's security services estimate there are around 10,000 radicals in Germany, some 1,600 of whom are suspected of being capable of using violence. Chancellor Angela Merkel has also come under fire for allowing in more than one million asylum seekers in the past two years, with the decision fueling the rise of the far-right Alternative for Germany (AfD) party, which claims the influx spells a heightened security risk.
  18. ISTANBUL: Istanbul police have detained 62 foreigners suspected of having links to Daesh in overnight raids, Turkish media reported Friday. Police have launched almost daily operations against Daesh cells across the country following concerns hundreds of alleged Daesh members have crossed into Turkey from Syria. The suspects were detained during raids on 12 addresses in eight districts of Istanbul, the privately-owned news agency Dogan said. They are suspected of providing financial support to fighters in "conflict zones", with the authorities opening deportation proceedings against them, it said. Earlier this month, Dogan said nearly 800 alleged Daesh members had illegally crossed into Turkey from Syria, though it did not say over what period. Police detained 634 Daesh suspects last month, according to interior ministry figures. Over the past two years, Turkey has suffered a series of attacks blamed on Daesh, one of which targeted a popular Istanbul nightclub during New Year celebrations, leaving 39 people dead. Daesh gunman Abdulgadir Masharipov, who was born in Uzbekistan and confessed to the attack, will go on trial this month. There are concerns that those foreigners who have fought in Syria or Iraq will pose security risks on their return home as Daesh loses significant territory in the two countries. At least 5,600 people, residents of 33 countries, have returned home, the Soufan Centre, a nonprofit security analysis group, said in October. Prime Minister Binali Yildirim on Friday claimed Turkey had stopped a total of 50,000 "foreign fighters" although he did not say over what period. This figure is believed to include those who have been blocked at Turkish airports. He also said Turkey had caught 5,000 Daesh suspects.
  19. Ben Stokes swarmed by media upon arrival in Christchurch, NZ LONDON: British detectives investigating an incident outside a nightclub involving cricketer Ben Stokes have passed a file to the Crown Prosecution Service for a decision on charging. The 26-year-old Durham all-rounder -- who is suspended from playing for England by the ECB -- is currently in New Zealand after flying to Christchurch to see his extended family. "We are now in a position to provide an update on our investigation into a disorder in Bristol which happened during the early hours of Monday September 25," Avon and Somerset Police said in a statement. A 27-year-old man suffered a fractured eye socket in the incident on Queens Road, Clifton. A 26-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of causing actual bodily harm and was later released under investigation. Three other men, aged 26, 27 and 28, have all voluntarily attended police stations for interview. "Today we have passed a file to the Crown Prosecution Service and are now seeking charging advice." The fiery all-rounder was tight-lipped after touching down in Christchurch, where he hopes to play first-class cricket for Canterbury in New Zealand´s domestic one-day competition. His stint with the New Zealand side is widely seen as an attempt to stay match-fit if Stokes receives the call to travel to Australia and bolster an England side reeling from a 10-wicket defeat in the first Ashes Test. Britain´s Telegraph newspaper reported that England had contingency plans to fast-track Stokes back into the Ashes squad within 48 hours if police decide not to charge him over the fracas. That could see him play in the Third Test in Perth starting December 14. Stokes was born in New Zealand but moved to England as a child when his father Gerard, a former rugby league international, took a coaching role. Both his parents have since moved back to Christchurch. The ECB has emphasised that Stokes is on a private trip that had not been set up by the organisation.
  20. China´s state-run Xinhua news agency had earlier reported that children at the kindergarten were also "reportedly sexually molested"-AFP BEIJING: A Beijing kindergarten teacher used sewing needles to punish children for not sleeping, police said, but other abuse claims have been rejected by an investigation into a scandal that sparked national outrage. Authorities opened the probe into RYB Education New World kindergarten last week after parents said toddlers were given mysterious pills and had apparent needle marks. The 22-year-old female teacher from Hebei province surnamed Liu "was detained as soon as suspicions of abuse arose", the public security bureau of Beijing´s Chaoyang district said late Tuesday on its official social media account. The statement did not give further information on the use of needles, such as details of children´s injuries or their age. Classroom surveillance footage was "damaged" because a staff member often turned off the building´s electricity after school, according to the statement. "Following review of 113 hours of restored surveillance footage, we have not found evidence of other child abuse," police said, adding that the investigation was ongoing. China´s state-run Xinhua news agency had earlier reported that children at the kindergarten were also "reportedly sexually molested". An examination of a girl involved in the case on her parents´ request found "no abnormality", police said, adding that claims children had been collectively molested were "rumours" started by two women. One woman was detained and the other was given a warning, according to police, who did not specify the pair´s relation to the school. Police had said Saturday that a 31-year-old woman was detained for disseminating "fake news" on the internet, and she expressed "repentance" for fabricating the story that military personnel were abusing children. It is unclear if police have fully investigated claims that children were given mysterious pills to take. The statement said that it is the school´s policy for parents to give written permission before children can take medication at school. Addressing a television report showing a clip of a student saying he was fed pills by teachers at the school, police said the child´s father had admitted to "instructing" the child to say so. The case prompted Chinese authorities to call for an "immediate" investigation into all kindergartens across the country. RYB Education directly operates 80 kindergartens and has franchised another 175 in 130 cities across China for children ranging from newborns to six-year-olds, according to its Nasdaq listing. RYB already apologised in April and suspended the head of a Beijing kindergarten after admitting that teachers committed "severe mistakes". The Beijing News had obtained videos showing teachers throwing a child on a bed and kicking another in the back. The People´s Court Daily reported that two teachers from a RYB kindergarten in northeast Jilin province were sentenced to 34 months in prison for jabbing children in the head, inside their mouths, and on their legs and buttocks with sewing needles in October 2016.

  24. The ?Raftaar? or ?Speed? squad of 600 policewomen will ride in pairs through the streets on state-of-art motorbikes, equipped with guns, pepper sprays and body cameras (File Photo-Reuters) NEW DELHI: An all-female police motorbike squad is set to take to Delhi?s streets next month, a senior police official said, as reports of violence against women rise in the Indian capital. The ?Raftaar? or ?Speed? squad of 600 policewomen will ride in pairs through the streets on state-of-art motorbikes, equipped with guns, pepper sprays and body cameras. ?Basically it is a robust street criminal containment strategy,? Delhi police spokesman Dependra Pathak told the Hindustan Times. ?There will be a specifically designed helmets with ear-pieces. The pillion will carry a weapon like an AK-47 rifle and the rider carrying a 9 mm pistol ... They will have all the accessories to make them effective on the ground.? Women and girls in India face multiple threats - from rape, abduction and murder over dowry to sexual harassment, acid attacks and child marriage. An October poll by the Thomson Reuters Foundation found Delhi, along with Brazil?s Sao Paulo, was the world?s worst megacity for *** crimes against women, earning it the unsavory title of India?s ?rape capital?. Reports of violence against women in Delhi have almost doubled since 2012, with 11,588 crimes, such as kidnapping and assault, recorded up to Nov. 15 this year, police data shows. Public awareness of violence against women in Delhi, particularly *** attacks, has surged since the fatal gang-rape of a 23-year-old student on a bus in December 2012. The case triggered a wave of public protests across the country, throwing a global spotlight on gender violence in the world?s second most populous nation. Indian authorities enacted stricter punishments for gender crimes, and set up a 24-hour women?s helpline, fast-track courts for rape cases and a fund to finance crisis centers for victims. Women?s desks in many of Delhi?s police stations have been established, thousands of police received gender sensitization classes, and Delhi has more patrols, surveillance and checkpoints at night. But research by Human Rights Watch (HRW) this month found that India?s criminal justice system continues to fail victims. HRW said survivors of *** crimes often suffered humiliation at police stations and hospitals, police were frequently unwilling to register their complaints and victims and witnesses received little protection. ?While it is important to have a woman officer, particularly during testimony gathering in sexual violence cases, putting more women on patrol will not necessarily solve the problem,? said Meenakshi Ganguly, HRW?s South Asia director. ?What is needed is better training for the entire police force, so that survivors are treated with respect and dignity, that the investigation is properly done to ensure evidence-based convictions,? she told the Thomson Reuters Foundation.
  25. Rescue workers work at the site of a blast in Ningbo, Zhejiang province, China November 26, 2017/Reuters BEIJING: A powerful blast on Sunday morning in China?s eastern Zhejiang province brought down buildings and killed two people while injuring many others, state media reported, while police said the cause had still to be determined. The explosion happened at around 9 am (0100 GMT) at a factory in Jiangbei district in Ningbo, a coastal city about 100 kilometers (62 miles) south of Shanghai, according to state news agency Xinhua, citing local authorities, witnesses and the Ningbo city?s fire department. In a separate report, China Central Television (CCTV) did not refer to a factory, but said the force of the explosion shattered windows and punched holes in the walls of buildings as much as a kilometer away. CCTV images showed a few flattened cars and a low-rise building with a collapsed wall. The state broadcaster said it was not a gas explosion, without elaborating further. CCTV said two people were killed while two others who had been injured were in serious condition. According to Zhejiang Daily, several buildings collapsed in a nearby residential area that had already been cleared of people. Police told Reuters the area had been marked for demolition. Rescue work and investigation into the cause were underway, police said in a statement issued on its verified Weibo account. Blasts and other accidents are common in China due to patchy enforcement of safety rules, although the government has pledged to improve checks to stamp out such incidents.
