Timeline of US protests over police killings of black suspects

28 Apr 2015 11:11:46

A riot in Baltimore, US, sparked by the death of a black man in police custody, is the latest outpouring of anger at perceived police racism. Rioting erupted Monday after the funeral of Freddie Gray, a 25-year-old Baltimore man who died of severe spinal injuries eight days after he was detained by city police. FERGUSON, Missouri: On August 9, a white police officer kills an unarmed black teenager, aspiring college student Michael Brown, 18, unleashing sometimes violent protests and heavy-handed police tactics. A later decision not to indict police officer Darren Wilson prompts riots in Ferguson and raises tensions from New York to Seattle with thousands taking to the streets.


Favours needed again as Juventus look to clinch title

28 Apr 2015 11:03:37

After their weekend derby disappointment, Juventus will need favours from elsewhere if they are to secure a fourth consecutive Serie A title in front of their own fans on Wednesday. Fourteen points clear at the top of the table with six matches remaining, Massimiliano Allegri's side entertain Fiorentina at the Juventus Stadium knowing a win will see them confirmed as champions provided nearest rivals Lazio slip up at home to Parma. A draw could also be enough for the Bianconeri to clinch their 31st scudetto this midweek, but only if Lazio, Roma and Napoli all fail to win, with the latter not in action away to Empoli until Thursday. In the last week, Juve have gone from the high of winning through to the semi-finals of the Champions League for the first time in 12 years to the low of losing 2-1 to city rivals Torino, their first defeat in the so-called 'Derby della Mole' since 1995.

28 Apr 2015 11:02:28

There are no indications so far that any U.S. ship is being directed by Iranian forces into an Iranian port, a U.S. official told Reuters on Tuesday. The official, who spoke to Reuters on condition of anonymity to discuss the situation, said the United States was still working to get clarity on the situation after Saudi-owned Al Arabiya television said an Iranian "force" seized a U.S. cargo ship in the Gulf on Tuesday and directed it to the Iranian port of Bandar Abbas.

Indonesia gears up for executions despite mounting criticism

28 Apr 2015 11:01:56

Indonesia geared up to execute eight foreign drug convicts by firing squad after midnight Tuesday, despite a firestorm of international criticism and heartrending last-ditch pleas by the condemned prisoners' families. Ambulances were seen carrying coffins to Nusakambangan prion island, where Indonesia puts condemned prisoners to death, and embassy officials and religious counsellors also made their way to the site late Tuesday as the clock ticked down to the executions. Relatives of Myuran Sukumaran and Andrew Chan, the Australian ringleaders of the so-called "Bali Nine" heroin trafficking group, wailed in grief as they headed to the island, and one relative collapsed. Please don't take my son," said Sukumaran's mother Raji, in a tearful plea after visiting him.


Music giant buys Bonnaroo amid festival boom

28 Apr 2015 11:00:50

Entertainment giant Live Nation said Tuesday it was buying a controlling stake in Bonnaroo, one of the most influential US music festivals, in the latest consolidation in the booming industry.

Live Nation, which also runs Ticketmaster, said that it would take a controlling interest in Bonnaroo but the two sides did not disclose financial terms. Live Nation will also own a share of the Bonnaroo property -- known to fans as "The Farm" -- where it said it will invest in improvements.


Majority of high court asks skeptical questions on gay marriage

28 Apr 2015 10:59:43

NEW YORK (Reuters) - Part way into oral arguments, a majority of the U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday fired skeptical questions at a lawyer who was asking the nine justices to legalize gay marriage nationwide. Five justices including a possible swing vote, Justice Anthony Kennedy, and a member of the court's liberal wing, Justice Stephen Breyer, asked lawyer Mary Bonauto why the high court should change a definition of marriage that has existed for millennia, rather than allowing American voters to decide. The hearing continued and was expected to end about 12:30 p.m. (1630 GMT). ...

Saudis under time pressure to break Yemen stalemate

28 Apr 2015 10:56:29

By Noah Browning and Angus McDowall DUBAI/RIYADH (Reuters) - The frontlines of Yemen's messy civil war have barely moved after weeks of Saudi air strikes and fighting between rival factions, but behind the scenes there are faint signs of shifts that could alter the balance on the ground. At stake is the stability and political future of a country that is home to al Qaeda's most active international wing, has become a theater of rivalry between top regional powers Saudi Arabia and Iran, and sits on main shipping routes. "By reading the map of all Yemen's battles and military clashes, both the air strikes and the internal Yemeni battles, one can see that the front is in the same place it was the day it all started, and neither side could push its advantage," political activist Bushra al-Maqtari wrote in the al-Araby al-Jadeed newspaper on Sunday. The Houthi militia and allied army units loyal to former president Ali Abdullah Saleh still hold central and southern areas they seized in late March and early April, but have failed to quash resistance from forces backing the exiled government.


Gulf states must allow Nepali workers to return after quake: trade union

28 Apr 2015 10:54:50

By Nita Bhalla NEW DELHI (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - Hundreds of thousands of Nepali migrants working in Gulf States must be allowed to return home after a massive earthquake devastated their impoverished nation, a trade union group said on Tuesday. The International Trade Union Confederation (ITUC), which has 176 million members globally, said it had written to the Qatar, Saudi Arabia and United Arab Emirates governments to ask them to suspend a sponsorship system which prevents the free movement of workers. The system has long been criticized by human rights groups and trade unions who have likened it to a form of modern day slavery, where employers take workers' passports and use possession to keep them there or extort a large fee before allowing them to leave. "We call upon the Gulf States, which rely so heavily on cheap and exploited labor from Nepal, to show compassion and immediately suspend the kafala restrictions which are stopping Nepalese people returning home for bereavement and to help reconstruct the country," said ITUC General Secretary Sharan Burrow in a statement.
