France's state of emergency could lead to abuses, say human rights groups 26.11.2015 The Guardian -- Front Page

Rights groups say vigilance is needed to stop a dragnet approach targeting innocent people and wrongly focusing on general Muslim community

Human rights groups have warned that the state of emergency decreed in France after the Paris terrorist attacks could lead to abuses and must be closely monitored.

Instances of armed police breaking down front doors with battering rams in the middle of the night, searching homes, handcuffing residents and placing people under house arrest without warrants or judicial oversight have multiplied in the two weeks since the Paris attacks that killed 130 people and injured more than 300.

'We were abandoned': migrants tell of suffering in Italy's private shelters 26.11.2015 The Guardian -- Front Page

Hosting a refugee earns landlords €35 a day from the state, but asylum seekers report being left without gas, water and food

The water and gas had been shut off for days when Lessena M and his flatmates, a group of asylum seekers from Ivory Coast who have been living in Naples for more than a year, decided to stage a protest.

They began throwing rubbish bins and an old orange sofa over the balcony of their flat while neighbours gathered in the street to watch. Then the police arrived, seemingly dismayed that the owner of the flat had not yet turned the water back on. Without working plumbing, the stench in the property had become intolerable. Lessena, 34, said even the boy who brought them their food every day in a plastic pouch – always pasta – had stopped coming.

Brussels schools reopen, manhunt ongoing for Paris attack suspects 25.11.2015 DNA: Top News
As police armed with automatic weapons stood guard, schools and some subway stations in the Belgian capital reopened today for the first time since emergency measures were imposed four days ago in the wake of the Paris attacks. Belgian and French authorities continued a manhunt for at least two suspects believed directly linked to the killings in Paris. About half of all subway stations in Brussels were operating for the first time since the weekend. Despite the easing of restrictions, Brussels home to the European Union and NATO headquarters remained under the highest alert level due to what authorities have described as a serious and imminent threat of attack. Emergency measures had shut down shops, schools and subways in the city since Saturday. The threat alert level is expected to remain at that level until at least Monday, barring a major development such as the arrest of suspects in the Paris attacks. The Belgian government has also ordered health and emergency services to take precautionary ...

Relatives lose fight for inquiry into 1948 Batang Kali 'massacre' 25.11.2015 The Guardian -- World Latest

UK supreme court ruling over shooting of Malayan villagers by British soldiers has profound consequences for inquiries into Northern Ireland’s Troubles

The government is not obliged to hold a public inquiry into the 1940s killing of 23 Malayan villagers by a British army patrol because the atrocity occurred too long ago, the supreme court has ruled.

The decision by the UK’s highest court that the duty to investigate effectively only dates back to 1966 – when the right of individual petition to the European court of human rights was introduced - will, however, have profound consequences for inquiries into Northern Ireland’s Troubles.

Tunisia says suicide bomber behind bus attack that killed 13 25.11.2015 DNA: Recent Columns
Tunisian security officials said on Wednesday a suicide bomber carried out the attack on a presidential guard bus, killing at least 13 and forcing the government to impose a nationwide state of emergency. Tuesday's blast on a main boulevard in the capital underscored Tunisia's vulnerability to Islamist militancy following the gun assaults on a Sousse hotel in June and the Bardo Museum in Tunis in March, both claimed by Islamic State. No group claimed responsibility for Tuesday's attack. But Tunisia has increasingly become a target for militants after being hailed as an example of democratic change since its 2011 uprising ousted autocrat Zine Abidine Ben Ali. "This is an evolution in the behaviour of the terrorists, this time they attacked a symbol of the state and in the heart of the capital," Prime Minister Habib Essid told reporters after an emergency security meeting. It was also the first suicide bombing in the capital. In October 2013 a bomber blew himself up on a beach in Sousse, and previously an ...
