Eritrean refugees in Israel sent to Uganda and Rwanda

Eritrean refugees - The sky was still an inky black when the flight from Cairo touched down at Entebbe Airport near Kampala, the capital of Uganda, one morning in mid-January, the fluorescent glow spilling from the small terminal providing the only source of light.

It had been 15 hours since Musgun Gebar left Tel Aviv, and the journey staggered him in its brevity. Four years earlier, when he had travelled the other way - from Eritrea in East Africa to Israel - he had done so on foot, a punishing journey across the Sahara and the Sinai that took more than a month.


'Calexit': Proposal submitted for California to secede from US

CalexitA group calling for California to secede from the United States submitted a proposed petition Monday seeking a ballot measure that would strip the state constitution of language that says California is an inseparable part of the nation.

The Yes California Independence Campaign hopes to put a question on the November 2018 ballot authorizing a vote on independence in spring 2019.

The group proposed the secession idea more than two years ago, but the so-called "CalExit" movement gained serious traction on social media after Republican Donald Trump won the presidential election.

Obama commutes 78 sentencesPresident Obama on Tuesday commuted the prison sentences of 79 inmates as part of a clemency effort that appears to be moving at rapid speed.

Jailed for ending a pregnancy: how prosecutors get inventive on abortion

Jailed for ending a pregnancyNearly 44 years after the supreme court ruled that women in the United States have a right to a legal abortion, self-induced abortions are still a significant phenomenon. As the Guardian reported on Monday, every year, there are potentially thousands of women in the US who attempt to end their pregnancies by themselves. Some even succeed.

Unwittingly or not, these women are operating in murky legal territory. Only seven states have some law that makes it explicitly illegal for a woman to attempt her own abortion, and in most states and at the federal level, the law says nothing at all. But that hasn’t stopped individual prosecutors from going after women who self-induce abortions, or try.


Team Trump: We Won’t Pursue Charges Against Clinton

Clinton won't be investigated: Trump spokespersonPresident-elect Donald Trump will not pursue an investigation against Hillary Clinton, MSNBC’s Morning Joe confirmed Tuesday.

Trump’s campaign manager and senior transition adviser Kellyanne Conway confirmed the change to the cable-news talk show.

Cooper, the state's outgoing attorney general, has said repeatedly that he won the race. Democratic lawmakers held news conferences across the state Monday to bolster Cooper's message, saying there is no way that McCrory can win.


Trump Foundation admits to self-dealing in filing to the government

Trump has been under heavy scrutiny in recent months for using tax-exempt foundation money to pay for personal expenses, such as legal settlements with governments and personal expenses, including paintings of himself.
