I met Fatuma in Somalia’s capital, Mogadishu, late last year. A few days before we met, she had been raped by an armed militia man while she slept in one of the city’s camps for displaced people. She told me that she had nowhere to turn for redress. Months earlier, 13-year old Abdi told me how he had been kidnapped from school by armed Islamists from al-Shabaab and forced to serve in ...
By Aung Tun Myanmar president Thein Sein was received at the White House this week, marking the first time in 47 years a leader of the Southeast Asian country has made an official visit to the United States.

By Pepe Escobar Nothing will be left to chance - even the hint of a green protest wave. In 2009, 475 candidates registered to run for Iran's presidency. Only four were approved by the Guardian Council - the all-powerful, vetting clerical committee. This year, no fewer than 686 registered for the upcoming June 14 elections. Eight were approved. Among them, one won't find the ...
By Francesco Sisci BEIJING - Does young North Korean leader Kim Jong-eun want a different future for himself and his country, or does he think he can spend the next half a century (his probable lifespan) imitating the threats, blackmail, and moves of his father, while physically resembling his grandfather? Nobody is sure about the future, especially so far ahead. One can say, as the song ...

In the war of businessmen against the people, the businessmen seem to have won the battle for collecting sales tax on products purchased from out-of-state sellers. A federal law sponsored by state business interests will require the appropriate state sales tax to be collected on Internet purchases. The state governments see this as a windfall because the voluntary sales tax doesn't seem to ...
Dan Liljenquist's gleeful recounting of adversity in the Obama presidency is unfortunate ("Chaffetz's search for truth in Benghazi paid off," May 16). Extremism on the left and on the right is much the same. Salient in both are fear and hate of an "other" and detachment of reality. Where extremism errs is in its rigid dichotomy of paired opposites, like friend and ...

A court in Malaysia has sentenced two Indian-origin men to separate jail terms for brutally assaulting a Nigerian that led to his death.
Judge Noor Azian Shaari of the high court in Shah Alam, the capital of the Malaysian state of Selangor, sentenced V. Ganesan, 29, to one year in jail and T. Kumar, 29, to seven years in jail for causing grievous injuries to Nwabudike Emmanuel Chukwuma that led to his death in April last year, the New Straits Times reported Wednesday.
According to the report, the perpetrators of the crime had accused the Nigerian of cheating them and had gone to the latter's home in Taman Puncak Jalil township in Selangor at 2.30 a.m. April 23 last year.
After a heated argument, Kumar punched Chukwuma on his body, face and head. He then dragged the victim to the road outside and kicked him there as well.
Ganesan punched and kicked Chukwuma twice.
The duo were arrested after neighbours of Chukwuma alerted the police.
Chukwuma was taken to a hospital where he died two days later.
In the ruling, the judge said that the two should not have taken the law into their own hands and ordered that they serve their respective jail terms from the date they were arrested, April 23, 2012.
