    The Bay Area's "cruel and inhuman" conditions for homeless residents violate a number of human rights, according to a reportwritten by United Nations Special Rapporteur Leilani Farha. Farha revealed her findings before the UN General Assembly two weeks ago, after previously reporting that homeless residents in San Francisco and Oakland had been denied "access to water, sanitation and health services, and other basic necessities." In January, she went on a fact-finding mission to assess the state of the Bay Area's homeless encampments, which are teeming with trash, feces, and discarded needles. In Oakland, Farha witnessed rats digging through the mud and families camped outside...

    Saudi Arabia has granted Air India approval to operate direct flights from Delhi to Tel Aviv, sources in the Israeli flight industry told Haaretz. If confirmed, this would be the first time the Saudis are allowing commerical flights to Israel to use their airspace. According to Reuters, a spokesman for Saudi Arabia's General Authority of Civil Aviation denied the report, saying the agency had not granted Air India permission to operate direct flights from Delhi to Tel Aviv. If true, Riyadh's approval would mean that the duration of flights from India to Israel will be shortened by two-and-a-half hours, compared...

He was carrying a disease-free certificate from the Liberian health ministry, claiming he underwent treatment successfully and was cured of the disease. The infected Indian who reached Delhi on November 10 underwent the mandatory screening at the Delhi airport. His blood tested negative for the virus. But when his body fluids...

    A young woman and her companion were held captive and beaten after boarding a minivan bus in the Brazilian city of Rio de Janeiro on Saturday night. At least three men took turns raping the woman in an assault that lasted six hours. The attack drew comparisons to the gang rape of a young woman on a bus in Delhi in December. That attack, which was so brutal that the victim later died of her injuries, sparked outrage in India and overseas. She too was traveling with a male companion, who was beaten but survived. Here is how the crimes...
  • Delhi rape spurs Indian women to rush for gun licenses

    A sense of insecurity has gripped the female population in parts of India. As the ashes of the New Delhi gang rape victim were scattered over the Ganges River, hundreds of Indian women applied for firearm licenses and joined self-defense classes. ­Since the news of the brutal gang rape and murder broke in December, 274 Delhi women have applied for gun licenses, Delhi police said. Some 1,200 more have called the licensing department to inquire how to obtain one. “These include not only the average working woman, but even students who travel long distances to colleges and even their concerned...

    Ravi Dass Camp, a poor neighborhood in South Delhi, is a maze of narrow lanes, open drains, and pastel-colored mud-and-brick houses. Clothes are hung to dry on power lines above the corrugated metal rooftops. It’s a typical city slum where locals say they try to make an honest living doing everything from construction day-labor to driving auto-rickshaws to cleaning houses. But these days, Ravi Dass Camp has an unwelcome distinction: it is home to four of the six men accused of carrying out the Dec. 16 gang-rape of a 23-year-old woman aboard a chartered bus that inflicted such horrific damage...

Is that not the home turf of Osama Bin Laden?? Remember the movie a few years back where terrorists hijacked a 747 with the intentions of crashing it into New York city or some other big city??? If Bin Laden wanted to creatate a major catastrophe, that would surely do it. I suppose the military could shoot it out of the sky, but how do they insure where it is going to land, or that...

    NEW DELHI: The Centre on Thursday opposed the dilution of Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) by the Delhi High Court, which decriminalised sexual acts, in private, between consenting adults of the same sex and urged the Supreme Court to reverse the landmark ruling. The UPA government told the Supreme Court that the HC had erred because a vast section of the Indian society still considered homosexuality immoral. The Delhi High Court on July 2, 2009, had delivered a historic judgement to amend a 149-year-old law - Section 377 of the IPC - and decriminalise private consensual sex...
