Afghan 'torturer in chief' killed in Taliban attack

Afghan 'torturer in chief' killed in Taliban attackGeneral Abdul Raziq once boasted he had survived "countless" Taliban attempts to kill him. The controversial Kandahar police chief, described by Human Rights Watch last year as the southern province's "torturer in chief", had risen through the ranks to become one of the most powerful security heads in Afghanistan. Widely seen as a bulwark against the Taliban insurgency, Raziq's death has left a dangerous security vacuum that one observer said could lead to a "meltdown" in the south, the Taliban movement's birthplace.

Prosecution admits to new error in Weinstein case

Prosecution admits to new error in Weinstein caseThe prosecution has admitted to a new embarrassing error in the Harvey Weinstein case, saying a police detective told one of the disgraced Hollywood producer's accusers to delete from her phone anything she wanted to keep private. In a letter to Weinstein's attorney dated Tuesday, prosecutor Joan Illuzzi-Orbon acknowledged that the lead detective had made the recommendation to one of two women accusing Weinstein in the case, in which he faces charges of rape and a forced oral sex act. "This new development even further undermines the integrity of an already deeply flawed indictment of Mr Weinstein," his lawyer Ben Brafman was quoted by a spokeswoman as saying.

Trump threatens to send military, shut border as migrants head for MexicoStretching almost 2,000 miles (3,200 km), the U.S.-Mexican border is one of the busiest in the world, processing thousands of commuters daily and much of the half a trillion dollars of annual trade between Mexico and the United States. "I must, in the strongest of terms, ask Mexico to stop this onslaught - and if unable to do so I will call up the U.S. Military and CLOSE OUR SOUTHERN BORDER!" Trump wrote on Twitter. Several thousand Honduran migrants moved this week through Guatemala, and some were trying to cross to Mexico on Thursday, local media said.

The outcome of Brat’s contest against Democrat Abigail Spanberger will speak volumes on election night — less than three weeks from now — about how big a potential Democratic wave could be.

In 'final column' missing writer Jamal Khashoggi says Arab states can silence media with impunity

In 'final column' missing writer Jamal Khashoggi says Arab states can silence media with impunityJamal Khashoggi's words could not be more powerful or more poignant. In a column published by the Washington Post on Wednesday night, the missing Saudi journalist says Arab governments have been given free rein by the international community to silence the media at an accelerating rate, in a piece that apparently foreshadowed his own fate. The writer has not been seen since entering the Saudi consulate in Istanbul a fortnight ago. Turkish officials say they have obtained audio recordings that suggest he was tortured and killed although the government of Saudi Arabia insists it does not know what happened to the prominent dissident. In a note published with the column, Karen Attiah, global opinions editor at The Washington Post, said the piece  perfectly captured Khashoggi’s commitment to freedom in the Arab world: "A freedom he apparently gave his life for." Jamal Khashoggi has not been seen since entering Saudi consulate in Istanbul two weeks ago Credit: Hasan Jamali/AP She said she received it from his translator a day after he disappeared. “The Post held off publishing it because we hoped Jamal would come back to us so that he and I could edit it together,” she wrote. “Now I have to accept: That is not going to happen. This is the last piece of his I will edit for The Post.” The disappearance of Jamal Khashoggi In his piece, Khashoggi describes how the optimism of the Arab Spring in 2011 was quickly dashed, replaced by the Middle East’s version of the Iron Curtain, imposed by domestic forces as they grappled for power. The rest of the world has done little as journalists were arrested or newspapers silenced, he continues. “Instead, these actions may trigger condemnation quickly followed by silence,” he writes. “As a result, Arab governments have been given free rein to continue silencing the media at an increasing rate.” He calls for a modern form of the old transnational media – something akin to Radio Free Europe that began broadcasting during the Cold War – to provide a platform for Arab voices. “We suffer from poverty, mismanagement and poor education,” he writes. “Through the creation of an independent international forum, isolated from the influence of nationalist governments spreading hate through propaganda, ordinary people in the Arab world would be able to address the structural problems their societies face."
