Will Jordan abolish a law that protects rapists?

Jordan lawe protecting rapistsAfter more than a decade of lobbying and campaigning, women's rights activists and officials in Jordan say they are closer than ever to abolishing a law allowing rapists to escape punishment if they marry their victim.

Egyptian-American Aid Worker, Released From Cairo Jail, Returns To U.S.

Aya Hijazi released from Egyptian prisonAn Egyptian-American aid worker and her Egyptian husband have returned to the U.S. after being imprisoned for nearly three years in Egypt, over charges of child abuse that were widely regarded as specious.

Mother of four deported Maribel Trujillo, a mother of four American children from Fairfield, Ohio, who has never committed any crime in the 15 years she has lived in the US, has been deported to Mexico in the latest sign that the Trump administration is indiscriminately targeting undocumented immigrants.

Human Rights Watch: U.S. airstrikes hit Syrian mosque

Human Rights Watch: US strike hits mosqueA report released Tuesday said the United States bombed a Syrian mosque in an airstrike last month, which the U.S. military had denied.

The Human Rights Watch report on the March 16 attack on Omar Ibn al-Khatab Mosqu suggests the United States failed to take "all feasible precautions" to avoid civilian casualties.

The U.S. military said it carried out a March 16 airstrike on a building where al-Qaida militants were meeting, not on a mosque next door where activists said 46 civilians were killed in a bombing.

israeli prisons brace for hunger strikeAs over a thousand Palestinians held in Israeli prisons prepared to begin a mass hunger strike called by an imprisoned senior Fatah terror chief, Israel’s Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan said Sunday that the strike is really about internal Palestinian politics and not an alleged dispute over prison conditions.
