The story of Ernö Erbstein, who survived Hungary’s Holocaust to coach Torino 22.1.2015 The Guardian -- Front Page
Forced to leave fascist Italy, Ernö Erbstein and his family survived the Holocaust in extraordinary circumstances before he returned to take Serie A by storm with the Grande Torino The following is an edited extract from Erbstein: The Triumph and Tragedy of Football’s Forgotten Pioneer, written by Dominic Bliss and published by Blizzard Books . Ernö Egri Erbstein was a pioneering coach who created Il Grande Torino, the great side that won five successive Serie A titles.

West Bengal Governor Keshri Nath Tripathi has sought a report from the state police on the recent violence that broke out in Birbhum, where a woman was sexually harassed and assaulted by cops and Trinamool Congress (TMC) workers.

‘CIA did not snoop on US Senate aides’ 16.1.2015 Asian Age: International
A CIA panel on Wednesday rejected accusations that the US spy agency had hacked into computers used by Senate aides who were investigating the torture of terror suspects. The panel’s report contradicted allegations from legislators and the findings of the agency’s own inspector general. The first investigations had concluded in 2014 that the CIA had secretly gained access to computers being used by Senate intelligence committee staff members. But the CIA had appealed the inspector general’s findings to an agency “accountability board” headed by former senator Evan Bayh, a former White House lawyer and three senior CIA employees. In its report, the board said there had been some “inappropriate access” to the Senate staff members’ “work product” but no CIA employee should be disciplined as there had been no wrongdoing and no law violated. Instead, the board levelled allegations at the Senate staffers, saying that they had gained access to some CIA documents that they were not authorised to see, including a ...
