Around 13 million people living in northeastern India’s largest state have been left off a controversial draft list of citizens released Monday by authorities, who are under pressure to identify and expel illegal immigrants. Assam has long struggled to curb immigration from neighbouring Bangladesh and is the only Indian state to compile a register of citizens. The latest draft list includes only 19 million of the state’s more than 32 million residents. It was prepared on the orders of the Supreme Court, which is hearing a series of claims to Indian citizenship from undocumented residents of the state. But there are […]

A U.S. appeals court in Washington on Tuesday upheld a lower court’s decision to allow President Donald Trump’s commission investigating voter fraud to request data on voter rolls from U.S. states. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit said the Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC) watchdog group, which filed the lawsuit, did not have legal standing to seek to force the presidential commission to review privacy concerns before collecting individuals’ voter data. EPIC had argued that under federal law, the commission was required to conduct a privacy-impact assessment before gathering personal data. But the three-judge appeals […]

By Owen Bennett Jones, BBC News Benazir Bhutto was the first woman to lead a Muslim country. The decade since an assassin killed her has revealed more about how Pakistan works than it has about who actually ordered her death. Bhutto was murdered on 27 December 2007 by a 15-year-old suicide bomber called Bilal. She had just finished an election rally in Rawalpindi when he approached her convoy, shot at her and blew himself up. Bilal had been asked to carry out the attack by the Pakistani Taliban. Benazir Bhutto was the daughter of Zulfikar Ali Bhutto, Pakistan’s first democratically elected […]

by Faisal Mahmud 25 Dec 2017 Dhaka, Bangladesh – An academic who went missing for over a month has returned home, saying “unidentified abductors” scooped him up in the middle of a busy road in Dhaka last month. Mubashar Hasan, an assistant professor of political science at North South University in Dhaka, was abducted on November 7. “If you look back, we will kill you,” Hasan cited his kidnappers as telling him when they released him last Friday, dropping him off from a microbus on a highway near Bangladesh‘s capital. Hasan had been dragged onto the bus, blindfolded, after spending 44 days […]

Liberians are choosing a new president in a run-off vote between Vice-President Joseph Boakai and former international footballer George Weah. Mr Weah, 51, won the first round, but did not secure the required 50% of the vote for an outright victory. Legal challenges delayed the vote to replace Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, Africa’s first elected female president. Liberia, which was founded by freed US slaves in the 19th Century, has not had a smooth transfer of power in 73 years. More than two million people are eligible to cast their ballots in the nation of 4.6 million people. Polls will close […]

Can Eating Fish Make Kids Smarter?

Myth has it that fish is brain food — but it just might be more than myth, a new study suggests. Kids who ate fish at least once a week had intelligence quotients, or IQs, that were nearly 5 points higher than the IQs for kids who ate less fish or none at all, the study found. Fish eaters also slept better. Though the study was done among Chinese children, American kids are just as likely to benefit from fish, according to lead researcher Jianghong Liu, an associate professor of nursing at the University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing in […]

Skipper Saif and Pinak Ghosh are the only two players who were part of the previous Under-19 World Cup at home in 2016, when they […]

US-Russia relations are getting chilly

Washington (CNN) In the space of a week, the Trump administration has named Russia a “rival power,” sanctioned a close Putin ally, and decided to give Ukraine anti-tank weapons to help in its fight against Moscow-backed militias. It’s a series of steps that has been paired with tougher rhetoric from the State Department about Moscow’s destabilizing activities in eastern Ukraine, and serious charges from the Pentagon that Russia is intentionally violating de-confliction agreements in Syria. The slew of actions highlights a decided turn away from the warmer, more cooperative relationship with Russia that President Donald Trump called for during his […]
