Syrian refugee overload takes toll on Turkey 1.9.2014 Asian Age: International
The refugees have become an increasingly visible presence in cities including Istanbul Cengiz, a street seller who plies his trade selling bread rings in the centre of Istanbul, is usually a fervent supporter of Turkey’s newly-elected President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. But on one issue, he begs to differ. “I support Erdogan. But I must say he made one error and that’s to allow the Syrians into our country,” he said. Mr Erdogan has maintained an “open door” policy for all those fleeing Syria’s civil war, with the result that there are now some 1.2 million Syrian refugees living in the country. Some 285,000 Syrians are accommodated in refugee camps in the south and southeast of the country but a far greater number of 912,000, according to official figures, are now living in Turkish cities. It is these refugees who have become the source of an upsurge in tensions in Turkey, where local authorities appear to have been initially poorly prepared for the huge influx. The refugees have become an increasingly ...

Assistant chief constable Chris Shead said his force's decision to launch European-wide search was justified and appropriate

Police have defended the international search for a five-year-old boy with a brain tumour who was found in Spain after his parents removed him from a Southampton hospital without doctors' consent.

Rs 599 Rs 599 Ray says that he had to be ‘particularly careful’ about the 10 distinct voices in his novel, ranging from 19th century rural Irish voices to those of Billy Swint of 1960s New York and Kush Mitra of the early 1990s. This was no country the world outside cared to know. Page 469, No Country No Country, Kalyan Ray’s multi-generational second novel, spans nearly 200 years, several continents. Beginning with the murder of a couple of South Asian origin in 1989, it jumps back in time, to Mullaghmore, Sligo County, Ireland, 1843, and three friends — Padraig Aherne, Bridget Shaughnessy and Brendan McCarthaigh — whose lives become inextricably linked with the birth of Padraig and Bridget’s illegitimate daughter, Maeve. Bridget dies in childbirth after Padraig has sailed off to India, later to become a successful timber merchant, and Maeve is cared for by her paternal grandmother, Maire, who on her deathbed hands Maeve to “Papa” Brendan.

Rebuilding Gaza to take 20 years: UN-backed body 31.8.2014 Asian Age: International
An international organisation involved in assessing post-conflict reconstruction says it will take 20 years for Gaza’s battered and neglected housing stock to be rebuilt following the war between Hamas and Israel. The assessment by Shelter Cluster, co-chaired by the UN refugee agency and the Red Cross, underscores the complexities involved in an overall reconstruction programme for the Gaza Strip, which some Palestinian officials have estimated could cost in excess of $6 billion. Any effort to rebuild Gaza will be hindered by a blockade imposed by Egypt and Israel since the Islamic militant group Hamas seized power in 2007. Israel has severely restricted the import of concrete and other building materials into Gaza, fearing that militants will use them to build rockets and reinforce cross-border attack tunnels. Egypt and Norway have raised the possibility of convening a Gaza donors’ conference at some point next month, but no firm arrangements have been made. With a population of 1.8 million, Gaza is a ...
