Alleged FGM practitioners arrested
BBC | Submitted by: Reid Fleming
"Police in the west African state of Burkina Faso have arrested 14 people for carrying out female genital mutilation on young girls. They are accused of carrying out FGM, banned in Burkina Faso, on 16 girls between the ages of two and 10... Without medical assistance, one of the victims would have bled to death, Reuters news agency reports. It is the fifth time that Adama Barry has been arrested for practising female circumcision, which carries fines of up to $1,500 to three months in prison... 'When I performed the operation, no blood was spilt,' Mrs Barry told Radio Burkina on Tuesday. But according to Dr Michel Akotionga, who treated the girls afterwards at his clinic, one of them had a severed artery."

Houston Chronicle | Submitted by: jtrotter

Seven children fending for themselves in a foreign country where they have no family members.'"

Special Ed student possibly killed by incompetence
Washington Post | Submitted by: FI-MasterChief
"Cindy Alvarado, a 13-year-old girl with cerebral palsy, had been lethargic and breathing more rapidly than normal that day at school. Her teacher was concerned and called for the nurse. But at the end of the day, Cindy was placed on a D.C. school bus with the nurse's urgent note tucked away. After an hour-long bus ride to her foster home in Fort Washington, Cindy, who used a wheelchair and was unable to speak, had stopped breathing and was turning blue. Soon she was pronounced dead at a hospital. Hours later, her foster mother found the nurse's note at the bottom of Cindy's backpack. It read: 'Please evaluate re: emergency room ASAP.' ... Schools spokeswoman Lucy Young said, 'We categorically deny any wrongdoing of any kind.'"

Three killed in gay sex plot
iAfrica | Submitted by: Moshe
"The Pretoria High Court on Wednesday heard chilling details of how Technikon Professor William Papo was strangled in January last year while engaged in a sex orgy before being stabbed in the neck. One of the murderers, state witness Joseph Bongani Mahlangu (29), testified ... he and Papo were gay lovers for about four years and he often went to the professor's home to 'play a game of hockey.' By this he meant that they engaged in gay sex acts or orgies. Mahlangu, who is serving a 55-year sentence after he pleaded guilty to the murders of Papo and a couple visiting him, said the plan was to strangle or throttle Papo while one of them was busy having sex with him... 'I went to the kitchen and got a knife. Moloto was lying on the floor, covered with a duvet. I then cut his throat. He made muffled screaming noises and his feet kept on kicking.' ... He testified that Lekalakala suggested that they place plastic bags over the heads of their victims to make sure that they were dead. After they did this, they left with the loot in Papo's two vehicles, Mahlangu said."

Greenpeace kills endangered fish in protest
Wire Services | Submitted by: optional
"Environment activists piled thousands of dead fish at the foot of Berlin's biggest tourist attraction, the Brandenburg Gate, Tuesday in a demonstration against over-fishing and pollution in the North Sea... visitors to the famous neo-classical landmark were greeted by the smell of 11,000 rotting fish displayed on a 100 meter long table under banners bearing the slogan 'Don't waste life!' ... The dead fish on display - some 95% of the catch, including endangered species of octopus and sea urchin - were those that commercial crews would normally throw back overboard for failing to meet traders' criteria. 'Some 700,000 tons of dead fish are thrown back into the sea each year - this waste problem will affect future generations if no one takes action,' said Greenpeace marine biologist Thomas Henningsen."

Witch's parrot dismembered
Rock Hill Herald | Submitted by: ringo
"About a dozen pagans gathered at Town Hall on Monday to show support for Great Falls resident Darla Wynne. Last week, Wynne returned home from dinner with a friend and discovered one of her parrots had been beheaded and his heart cut out, she said. A note attached to the back of Little One, Wynne's 8-year-old African gray parrot, said, 'You're next!' ... Wynne, a Wiccan high priestess, filed a lawsuit in 2001 against Great Falls for invoking the name of Jesus Christ in council prayers. Federal courts ruled in favor of Wynne, saying the prayers were unconstitutional. Town officials, who have the support of the state attorney general, have appealed the case."

Sex slavery still a problem in Israel
Fox News | Submitted by: Reid Fleming
"Human trafficking is turning into a real problem in Israel, where law enforcement officials say women are bought and sold into the indentured servitude of the sex industry. The women in question are usually from the former Soviet Union (search) and are traded by the Russian mob... Thinking they are escaping the harsh conditions of home, a reported 3,000 prostitutes each year come to Israel. Their fist experience in the Holy Land is a forced march across the Egyptian desert, crossing the Israeli border through routes used to smuggle weapons and drugs."

Random House dumps Khouri's book
Sydney Morning Herald | Submitted by: Reid Fleming
"Controversial author Norma Khouri has admitted fabricating elements of her best-selling book, Forbidden Love, but said she did so to protect herself, her friends and her family... 'I will never call that book fiction and I will never call that book a novel,' Ms Khouri told the Nine network's A Current Affair... The Sydney Morning Herald last month reported that Ms Khouri left Jordan at the age of three and lived in Chicago for most of her life, and that her friend never existed... Last week, Ms Khouri submitted documents to her publisher Random House in an attempt to prove the book, which has sold 250,000 copies worldwide, was a factual account of her life in Jordan. But on Friday, Random House withdrew the book from sale permanently, saying the material was not enough to prove conclusively her version of events."

Halliburton wins 3rd reprieve from Pentagon auditors
New York Times | Submitted by: Reid Fleming
"The U.S. Army reversed a decision late Tuesday to withhold payment on 15% of future invoices of Halliburton Co.'s logistics deal in Iraq and gave the company more time to resolve a billing dispute. The Army said earlier Tuesday it had decided that starting Wednesday it would withhold 15% of payments on future bills from Halliburton unit Kellogg Brown and Root for a logistics contract servicing U.S. troops in Iraq and Kuwait... 'I just got a phone call putting on hold the 15% withhold clause implementation and I don't know why or any of the particulars,' said Linda Theis, a spokeswoman for the Army Field Support Command... The threat to dock payments hung over the company for months because of a dispute over whether KBR properly documented bills for feeding and housing troops in Iraq and Kuwait. Two previous extensions were granted and another one had been expected by KBR when a deadline expired last Sunday."

Bush hawks Star Wars pipe dream
CBS News | Submitted by: Reid Fleming
"Without mentioning Democratic rival John Kerry by name, President Bush said those who oppose his missile defense program 'don't understand the threats of the 21st century' ... 'We say to those tyrants who believe they can blackmail America and the free world: "You fire, we're going to shoot it down,"' Mr. Bush said. Addressing workers at defense contractor Boeing in the crucial swing state of Pennsylvania, Mr. Bush said those who oppose missile defense are 'living in the past. We're living in the future. We're going to do what's necessary to protect this country.'" [This preposterous strategy has only gotten stupider since the '80s.]

Idema mounts crappy legal defense
Independent News | Submitted by: Reid Fleming
"Jonathan Idema defended himself flamboyantly from the dock wearing his trademark home-made counter-terrorism uniform and dark glasses, accusing the US government of betraying him and alleging that the Afghan victims whom he is accused of torturing were planning spectacular terrorist attacks. At one point, exasperated with the inadequate translation and insisting that he was not able to defend himself without evidence, he appealed to the judge in a thick New York accent. He said: 'I can't defend myself like this. Just give me the 15 years right now, let's get it over with.' ... Idema, 48, a former green beret, claims to have run his own anti-terrorist war with the full knowledge of Defence Secretary Donald Rumsfeld. However, hundreds of vital faxes from the Pentagon, the CIA, and the FBI which showed the full extent of official support for his actions have vanished, he claimed. The bizarre case has embarrassed the US military and NATO, both of which Idema tricked into working with him."
