Tashi Wangchuk's lawyer Liang Xiaojun told The Associated Press that his client earlier said he planned to appeal the sentence handed down by a judge in the western city of Yushu in Qinghai province. Liang said he was unable to comment further due to a court-issued gag order. Rights groups condemned the sentence, saying he had committed no crime either under international law or the Chinese constitution.

Indian women want review of sexual violence coverage by global media 20.5.2018 General News
Women in India are eager for the global media to cover more stories of sexual violence "survivors" who have been able to rebuild their lives as a more positive perspective, according to a new research-based project. A new radio documentary titled 'BBC She: Badlein Nazariya (Change your viewpoint)' to be aired by BBC News Hindi next week is based on conversations with young women from universities across India. It found that women feel that media reports on brutal details of cases of sexual violence amplify the atmosphere of fear surrounding the issue rather than helping to resolve it. As part of the special project, the UK-based news organisation's Indian language services reached out to young women to find out what they want from media. "BBC She is an inspiring project not only because of the great stories it brought up but also because it allowed us to listen so closely to women and to understand what they think of the way media cover subjects that matter to them," said Juliana ...
