US Judge orders government to provide mental health fund for over 2000 migrant children 13.7.2018 DNA: Opinion
A civil rights group asked a federal judge on Thursday to order the US government to provide mental health counselling for the around 2,000 immigrant children separated from their parents by officials at the US-Mexican border. The request by the American Civil Liberties Union follows a chaotic week for US immigration officials, who failed to meet a court-ordered deadline on Tuesday for reuniting children under the age of five. The government "must establish a fund to pay for professional mental health counselling, which will be used to treat children who are suffering from severe trauma as a result of their forcible separation from their parents," said the ACLU in court papers filed late Thursday. The group said the cost of the fund could be determined at a future date. The rights group brought the lawsuit that prompted U.S. Judge Dana Sabraw in San Diego last month to order the government to reunite families separated at the border. The family separation policy was instituted as part of President Donald ...

Create 'conducive' conditions for Rohingyas' safe, dignified return: UNSC to Myanmar 10.5.2018 General News
The UN Security Council has urged Myanmar to create "conducive" conditions to ensure safe and dignified return of Rohingya Muslim refugees and hold accountable perpetrators of violence, including sexual abuse against children. Since August last year, nearly 700,000 minority Muslim Rohingyas have fled violence in Myanmar across the border into Bangaldesh's Cox's Bazar, joining several hundred thousand more that were already settled there in overcrowded camps. A team of the United Nations' powerful body visited Bangladesh and Myanmar from April 28 to May 1, and took a first-hand look at the humanitarian crisis. "The members of the Security Council urged the government of Myanmar to step up its efforts to create conditions conducive to the safe, voluntary and dignified return of Rohingya refugees and internally displaced persons to their homes in the Rakhine State and to address the root causes of the crisis through implementation of the Rakhine Advisory Commission recommendations, ...

Thousands flee fresh clashes in northern Myanmar: UN 28.4.2018 General News
Thousands of people have fled renewed fighting between Myanmar's army and ethnic insurgents in the country's remote north, a United Nations official said, as a long-simmering conflict intensifies. More than 4,000 people have been displaced in Myanmar's northernmost state of Kachin near the border with China in the last three weeks, Mark Cutts, the head of the UN's Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), told AFP late last night. The numbers do not include some 15,000 people who have fled since the beginning of the year and upwards of 90,000 residing in IDP (internally displaced persons) camps in both Kachin and Shan states since a ceasefire between the government and the powerful Kachin Independence Army broke down in 2011. "We have received reports from local organisations saying that there are still many civilians who remain trapped in conflict-affected areas", Cutts said of the recent clashes. "Our biggest concern is for the safety of civilians -- including ...

Russia may have tampered with chemical attack site: US Envoy 16.4.2018 DNA: Top News
Western countries accused Moscow on Monday of preventing inspectors from reaching the site of a suspected poison gas attack in Syria and said Russians or Syrians may have tampered with evidence on the ground. The United States, Britain and France launched air strikes on Saturday against what they described as three Syrian chemical weapons targets in retaliation for a suspected gas attack that killed scores of people in the Damascus suburb of Douma on April 7. Syria and its ally Russia deny using poison gas during their offensive this month, in which they seized the town that had been the last major rebel stronghold near the capital. Inspectors from the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) went to Syria last week to inspect the Douma site but have yet to gain access to the town, which is now under government control after the rebels withdrew. "It is our understanding the Russians may have visited the attack site," U.S. Ambassador Kenneth Ward said at a meeting of the OPCW in The ...
