Turkey presses Security Council on Syria

Western powers said Thursday they were "not ruling out any options" in delivering humanitarian assistance to besieged Syrians after Turkey, which has taken in more than 80,000 refugees, implored the UN Security Council to take immediate steps to establish camps within Syria. "How long are we going to sit and watch while an entire generation is being wiped out by random bombardment and deliberate mass targeting?" Ahmet Davutoglu, Turkey's foreign minister, asked the council.

  • UN's Ban, Egypt's Morsi lambast Syrian regime
    UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi criticized the Syrian regime at the meeting of the Nonaligned Movement, surprising the summit's host, Iran, Syria's closest regional ally. The UN chief rejected the Syrian characterization of the Arab Spring, saying it wasn't imposed from afar, but "came from within -- from people who stood up for a better future." The Syrian delegation to the summit left during the speech by Morsi, who said, "We all have to announce our full solidarity with the struggle of those seeking freedom and justice in Syria."

  • India to punish employment of children under 14
    Proposed changes to India's child labor laws would mete out prison terms of up to three years, in addition to substantial fines, to anyone who employs children under 14. About 28 million children under 14 are working, chiefly in agriculture, according to UNICEF. The government has "recognized that the long-term benefits of education are far more consequential than the short-term gains of child labor," said A.K. Shiva Kumar, an economist with the National Advisory Council. The Washington Post (8/29) LinkedInFacebookTwitterEmail this Story

  • Sustainability key to world's largest marine parks
    The new marine protected area in the South Pacific Ocean announced this week by the Cook Islands and New Caledonia is the world's largest and, at nearly 2.5 million square kilometers, bigger than France and Germany combined. "We are not small Pacific island states. We are large ocean island states," said Henry Puna, prime minister of the Cook Islands, who said the parks would be zoned for multiple, sustainable uses. "This is our contribution not only to our own well-being, but also to humanity's well-being." The Guardian (London) (8/30) LinkedInFacebookTwitterEmail this Story

  • Governments using spyware to snoop on dissidents
    Off-the-shelf computer espionage software, designed to escape detection by anti-virus programs, is being used to monitor dissent by governments with poor human rights records. While software such as FinSpy is ostensibly sold solely for use in criminal investigations, it has been linked to servers in nations such as Turkmenistan, Brunei and Bahrain, according to this article.
