Six Myanmar soldiers jailed for killing civilians in rare trial 21.1.2018 The Tribune
Bangkok, January 21 A Myanmar military tribunal has sentenced six soldiers to 10 years in prison with hard labour for killing three civilians in war-torn Kachin state, officials said, in a move welcomed by rights groups. The Kachin state police office said the tribunal handed down the sentence Friday after finding the soldiers guilty of killing three ethnic Kachin civilians in September. The prosecution came after an internal investigation by the military. Min Zaw, a Kachin state police officer, said that during the hearing the six confessed that they were responsible for the killings. Kachin state is home to an ethnic rebel army that has been fighting the Myanmar military for more than seven years. More than 100,000 people have fled the fighting and live in refugee camps. Calls to the military information office rang unanswered yesterday. The three civilians were among a group of five detained by soldiers last May while they were heading back to their refugee camp after gathering firewood near Hka Pra ...

Honduras roads blocked in protests against election results 21.1.2018 The Tribune
Tegucigalpa, January 21 Activists blocked roads and clashed with police in Honduras as part of nationwide protests against the contested re-election of President Juan Orlando Hernandez. Dozens of people have been killed and hundreds jailed since Hernandez was declared the winner of the November 26 run-off election—after a three week stretch of often- interrupted ballot counting that stoked tensions and sparked accusations of fraud in the Central American country. The left-wing Alliance in Opposition against the Dictatorship is heading a protest campaign insisting that the election was stolen from its candidate, former TV anchor Salvador Nasrallah. The opposition called for a “national strike” on Saturday to block the country’s main roads ahead of the start of the president’s new term in office on January 27. The government deployed police and soldiers to confront protesters. One demonstrator was shot dead yesterday, opposition leader and former president Manuel Zelaya told AFP, identifying the victim as ...

HC no to use of UV protection black films on cars 21.1.2018 The Tribune
New Delhi, January 21 The Delhi High Court has said that it would not allow the use of solar control black films on cars, which have been banned due to security reasons. A bench of justices Sanjiv Khanna and Chander Shekhar also refused to strike down a law prohibiting use of black films for windscreens and side glasses of four wheelers, saying it was in “larger public interest”. It, however, said that it was neither passing any order nor was it inclined to give any relief on the plea seeking direction to authorities not to take any step against the petitioner for using solar control black film in his car as he was suffering from a disorder caused by ultraviolet (UV) rays. The court said there are technologies available, by which an individual, who is suffering from the rare genetic disorder caused by UV rays, can easily protect himself. “The decision to enforce the ban on the use of the tinted glasses beyond permissible limits is in public interest, so we are not going to interfere with it,” the bench ...

Mumbai Marathon 2018 | 'No water, too many people': Elite runners slam organisers 21.1.2018 DNA: Mumbai
The elite women runners of the Tata Mumbai Marathon on Sunday slammed the event organisers, saying there were too many casual runners on the course and that the Metro construction work was also a hindrance. "It was a quite difficult race as there were a lot of people (casual participants in other non-competitive events) on the road. It was difficult to concentrate," said women's race winner Amane Gobena of Ethiopia at the post-event media conference. Gobena finished first in 2:25:49 and was well ahead of defending champion Bornes Kitur of Kenya who clocked 2:28:48 to finish second. She said she missed receiving water thrice the 5, 15 and 30 km marks.   "It was difficult to get water also and there were too many corners (due to construction work for Mumbai Metro-3 line)," she said, about the chaotic manner in which the race was held. Gobena said she knew that despite the hazards she will win the race just past the halfway mark after taking a clear lead. "I had prepared very well for the race. We (She and ...

Turkey launches Operation Olive Branch in Syria against US-backed Kurdish militia 21.1.2018
Hassa, Turkey/Beirut: Turkey opened a new front in Syria"s nearly seven-year-old war on Saturday, launching airstrikes against a US-backed Kurdish militia in Afrin province that raise the prospect of a further strain on relations between Ankara and Washington. The operation, dubbed "Operation Olive Branch" by Ankara, pits Turkey against Kurdish fighters allied to the United States at a time when ties between Turkey and Washington - NATO allies and members of the coalition against Islamic State - appear dangerously close to a breaking point. The strikes on the Syrian-Kurdish YPG militia hit some 108 targets, the Turkish military said. On land, the Turkey-backed Free Syrian Army rebels were also helping the operation in Afrin, a senior Turkish official said. "The weakening of the region with artillery fire is under way. The first stage was carried out by aerial forces of the military and nearly all of the targets were destroyed," Prime Minister Binali Yildirim said. From ...
