Jayalalitha; The 'goddess' of Tamil Nadu...

The passing of Jayaram Jayalalitha, considered one of India's maximum flamboyant and arguable politicians, leaves a void so that it will be felt for a long time in each her home nation, Tamil Nadu, and within the Indian political scene.

The leader of Tamil Nadu country and previous actress who performed a effective goddess on display turned into all too human and but her followers deified her as a divine being.

She inspired a cult following, and adoring followers frequently referred to as her "Adi parashakti" - which means the ultimate powerful goddess in Tamil.

 She changed into one in all India's maximum charismatic and enigmatic personalities, unmarried-handedly conserving her personal inside the masculine global of Tamil politics and correctly breaking a extra than 30-year-vintage subculture of male dominance. Full story...

Sweden’s recycling is so revolutionary, the country has run out of rubbish...

Sweden is so good at recycling that, for several years, it has imported rubbish from other countries to keep its recycling plants going. Less than 1 per cent of Swedish household waste was sent to landfill last year or any year since 2011.

We can only dream of such an effective system in the UK, which is why we end up paying expensive transport costs to send rubbish to be recycled overseas rather than paying fines to send it to landfill under The Landfill Tax of 1996.

The UK has made strides in the proportion of waste recycled under an EU target of 50 per cent by 2020. This has underpinned hundreds of millions of pounds of investment into recycling facilities and energy recovery plants in the UK, creating many jobs. We’re not quite at that target yet. Recycling in the UK peaked at around 45 per cent of all waste in 2014.

Since then, provisional figures from the ONS have shown that figure has dropped to 44 per cent as austerity has resulted in budget cuts. The decision to leave the EU could be about to make this situation worse. While Europe is aiming for a 65 per cent recycling target by 2030, the UK may be about to fall even further behind its green neighbours. Full story...

Cancer Horror Story: Cancer Industry Hides Awful Truth That Chemo Often Kills Patients Before Cancer Does...

The shocking study was published in LANCET ONCOLOGY in September of this year and was reported by a limited number of news sources. Guardian Aug 30, 2016] Most were obscure online portals. [ChristianTruther.com Aug 7, 2016; The Free Thought Project Sept 3, 2016; Opposing Views Sept 6, 2016; What Doctors Don’t Tell You Sept 6, 2016] But alternate news sources were apparently drowned out by the recent Presidential election in the USA. Absent were CNN, ABC, NBC, CBS, Reuters, The Associated Press — the major news media.

In some hospital-based cancer treatment centers the death rate from chemotherapy (not cancer) is as high as 50%. The study involved thousands of patients with lung cancer in England.

In Britain, the overall death rate among lung cancer patients is 8.4% within a month but in some hospitals, the death rate was much higher, as much as 50.9%. The hospitals were advised of the problem (actually years ago). Some reviewers are explaining away the findings of the study on poor data, but the demonstrative difference in deaths between treatment centers would be difficult to attribute to faulty data.

Social media obsessed India goes to extreme lengths to make selfies picture-perfect...

In any given month, Delhi-based cosmetic surgeon Dr Anup Dhir gets about 25 customers who want him to do one thing: make their selfies picture perfect.

Requests from his clientele, which varies across age groups, range from 'skin peeling' for skin colour enhancement to 'fish lips', a lip augmentation procedure which makes thin lips look shapely.

“The problem with selfies is that they are done with a flat lens, not with a high focal length lens, so facial features are not that pleasing. The profile of cameras is changing and people end up taking 7-8 photos every day, just for posting,“ says Dr Dhir, a Delhi-based cosmetic surgeon. “The pressure of posting on social media is definitely very high,“ he adds.

The obsession with selfies doesn't end there. Indians are risking life and lip to capture that perfect selfie. In the past two years, a total of 127 deaths globally were caused due to reckless behaviour while clicking selfies. Of these, 76 occurred in India alone - the highest in the world, according to a recent research by Precog at Delhi's Indraprastha Institute of Information Technology. Full story...

Cancer patient sues hospital after flesh-eating bug eats his penis...

A man who lost most of his penis to a flesh-eating superbug after routine surgery is taking legal action against the hospital.

Cancer patient Andrew Lane, 61, contracted the potentially fatal infection necrotising fasciitis following an operation to remove his prostate gland at Southend Hospital in Essex.

He was left fighting for his life and, although he survived, his genitals were so badly damaged that he lost most of his penis and is no longer able to have sex.

So much diseased tissue had to be removed that it also left him with a protruding stomach, where the outer tissue had been "eaten" away.

He was forced to use a catheter and colostomy bag for two years and has had to have a special device fitted to help him urinate. Full story...

Dutch authorities seize $100 million yacht allegedly owned by Equatorial Guinea's dictator's son...

Dutch authorities in the Netherlands have seized Ebony Shine, the 76-meter luxurious yacht allegedly owned by Teodorin Obiang, vice-president and son of the president of Equatorial Guinea.

According to a report by Swiss magazine, L'Hebdo, the yacht was seized on December 2nd at the request of Swiss courts.

For sometime now, the Swiss government has been investigating Teodorin Obiang on the back of allegations that he has been laundering money from Equatorial Guinea’s coffers. In November, Swiss authorities seized 11 luxurious cars belonging to the Obiang. At the time, a spokesman for the Malabo government denied that Teodorin Obiang was the owner of those cars and yachts, and explained to L'Hebdo that the cars were owned by Equatorial Guinea. Some of the cars in question included Ferraris, Lamborghinis, Aston Martin and a Bugatti.

According to SuperYachtFan.com, a site that tracks super yachts and their wealthy owners, Ebony Shine was delivered in 2008 by Feadship as Ocean Victory for Russian billionaire Viktor Rashnikov. It was subsequently sold to Teodorin Obiang for an undisclosed sum, even though the site values the yacht at $100 million. Ebony Shine can accommodate 12 guests in 6 cabins and has a crew of 21. She is powered by two Caterpillar engines which give her a top speed of 16.5 knots and a transatlantic range. At delivery she was the largest Feadship in terms of volume. Full story...

For female student debtors in China, dirty deeds done dirt cheap...

The most sensational news in China this week, dubbed "Stupid-Girl.zip-Gate," is the 10-gigabyte file of nude photographs and videos of thousands of female Chinese university students that were leaked online and, as a result, shared across the world.

It was reported that the girls' explicit selfies, in which each of them was photographed holding their ID cards, were taken willingly and by themselves as collateral for monetary loans via online peer-to-peer lending platforms.

The money these girls borrowed ranged from 2,000 yuan ($290.74) to 6,000 yuan; the more money loaned, the more graphic the selfie needed to be. The platforms usually required the money to be paid back within one to four weeks at a weekly interest rate of 15 percent.

Once news of the X-rated loans made headlines, netizens debated who was more at fault. "Why are illegal loan businesses allowed to operate online? Such peer-to-peer lending platforms should be shut down," one Weibo user commented.

But most blamed the girls. "Why would any young woman ever agree to hand over masturbation videos to evil loan sharks?" a netizen lamented. Full story...

India sees huge spike in 'honour' killings...

India has registered an almost 800 percent rise in the number of killings in the name of "honour" reported last year, according to figures presented in parliament.

Indian police registered 251 cases of honour killings in 2015, compared with 28 cases reported in 2014 when the government began counting them separately from murder, according to a statement this week by Junior Home Minister Hansraj G Ahir to India's parliament.

The surge could partly reflect more willingness by people to report such crimes, which many still consider just punishment for women and men who defy communal customs by marrying outside of their religion, clan, or caste.

Often the perpetrators are relatives seeking to punish young couples for bringing "shame" to the family.

Women's rights activists say the government must pass legislation to recognise the crime as unique in order to target perpetrators for prosecution. Full story...

Uganda is worried about the number of Chinese men marrying their women...

Contractors, petty traders, investors, and entrepreneurs from China have been pouring into Uganda for the past decade. China is a top investor in the east African country, accounting for as much as half of total foreign investment between 2014 and 2015, according to the Uganda Investment Authority.

But according to Ugandan immigration officials, there’s one major downside: an increasing number of Chinese men are marrying Ugandan women to gain residency and continue their business interests in the country.

Officials told a parliamentary committee in late November that they are seeing more and more Chinese-Ugandan couples, often in sham unions. Couples are normally interviewed before spousal status is granted and Chinese men involved in sham marriages are deported.

“But we have many who are marrying and even producing… Even our Ugandan women are accepting to [reproduce] with these men,”an official from Uganda’s directorate of citizenship and immigration control told the committee. More + video...

German court rules Muslim girls must take part in swimming lessons...

Germany’s highest court has ruled that ultra-conservative Muslim girls must take part in mixed swimming classes at school, finding against an 11-year-old pupil who had argued that even wearing a burkini, or full-body swimsuit, breached Islamic dress codes.

The constitutional court in Karlsruhe on Wednesday rejected an appeal by the girl’s parents that she should be excused from the classes because a burkini did not conform with Islam’s ethic of decency, German media reported.

A spokesman for the court could not be reached for comment.

Germany is in the grip of a heated public debate about the role of Islam in society as it seeks to integrate more than a million mainly Muslim asylum seekers fleeing war and persecution who have entered this year and last. Full story...

Paris makes all public transport free in battle against 'worst air pollution for 10 years'

Parisians can use public transport for free for the second day running due to a spike in air pollution and some cars have been barred from the roads.

The city is suffering its worst and most prolonged winter pollution for at least 10 years, the Airparif agency which measures the levels said on Wednesday.

Authorities have said only drivers with odd-numbered registration plates can drive in the capital region on Wednesday. Drivers of even-numbered cars were given the same opportunity on Tuesday, but could now be fined up to €35 if they are caught behind the wheel. More than 1,700 motorists were fined for violations on Tuesday.

Paris mayor Anne Hidalgo said images of smog blanketing the capital were proof of the need to reduce vehicle use in the city centre. Full story...

The girl and the cloud...

Why Lord of the Flies is the perfect Christmas gift for 2016 ...

It’s the story of a society in which democracy descends into tribalism and tyranny. One of a civilisation built by those committed to the rule of law who turn on each other, scapegoating the marginalised and powerless. Ultimately, it’s a reminder of a human barbarism lying just beneath the fragile veneer of decency.

Sound familiar? That’s right: it’s the plot of Lord of the Flies, a novel about a group of English boys who survive a plane crash and are marooned on an island in the South Pacific. After a short period of harmony, a power struggle between the two leaders, Ralph and Jack, causes the group to split. Jack wins out by promising to hunt and kill a common enemy – the strange phantom living in the jungle known only as the Beast. It’s a successful campaign of fear and division.

Lord of the Flies was first published in 1954, largely in response to the rise of Nazism and the horrors of World War II. And yet, in many ways, it speaks directly to the world of 2016, where austerity, the refugee crisis, Brexit and the rise of Donald Trump have emboldened nationalist fervour and stoked societal fragmentation.

The racialised language of tribal “savagery” in the novel quite rightly makes contemporary readers bristle. It marks author William Golding’s failure to move beyond a fundamentally eurocentric and colonialist view of the world. But ultimately, the book’s message is that “savagery” is universal. It is not racially or nationally defined. It’s a moral that encourages us to reflect on just how far-right extremism has crept back into mainstream politics throughout Europe and America.

Price of gold skyrockets in India after currency ban...

(...)

Several petitions in various courts across India were immediately filed against the central bank, the Reserve Bank of India (RBI), for repudiating its IOU obligation which the currency bills represent, after Modi’s announcement on 8th November.

Several postponements later, the first hearing at the Supreme Court will likely take place on 5th December 2016, almost a month after the announcement of the ban. That does not mean that the court did not deliberate over “more important issues” affecting this wretched poor country.

It inter alia heard a petition and passed a judgment that makes playing the national anthem compulsory at cinema halls before the start of every movie, to promote nationalism. It also decreed that people have to stand up while the anthem is played. Henceforth one can be charged with sedition for not actively showing proper respect to the flag and the anthem.

Only someone very numb can avoid being horrified by this. Full story...

Spanish taxman investigates Ronaldo revelations...

Spanish tax authorities are investigating reports that Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo hid 150 million euros ($160 million) from image rights in tax havens.

A group of 12 European newspapers made the allegations based on leaked documents obtained by German weekly Der Spiegel.

Other high profile clients of Ronaldo's agent Jorge Mendes were also implicated, including Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho.

Both Ronaldo and Mourinho say that they have fully complied with British and Spanish fiscal requirements. Full story...

Yemen conflict: the world has turned a blind eye...

 In the hands of the doctor, baby Ibrahim's head seems impossibly small. He cradles the child gently, conscious of his fragility. Everything around him seems improbably large.

The nappies Ibrahim wears are the smallest available but are still too big. With his large eyes and hollowed-out face, with ribs which press against his skin, the baby looks as if he is shrinking back into himself.

It seems perverse to describe a child in this state as "lucky". But Ibrahim has survived 21 days and doctors are hopeful he will endure. His twin brother died soon after he was born.

His mother, Wafaa Hatem, sits on the bed with her son, stroking his fingers when he cries. Full story...

The true history of chemotherapy & the pharmaceutical monopoly...

In 2016, approximately 1,685,210 new cases of cancer will be diagnosed in the United States alone, and approximately 600,000 people will die from the disease. The number of new cancer cases is 454.8 per 100,000 men and women per year, based on cases from 2008-2010.

Men have almost a 50 percent chance of contracting the disease at some point within their lifetime, and women have a 1/3 chance. Pretty crazy isn’t it? (source)

In a time where so much information is coming to light, challenging the belief systems of so many, it’s important to keep an open mind to new information to help us see through what’s really been happening on our planet. It’s no secret that a small group of corporations dominate almost every aspect of our lives, from energy to education, all the way to modern day healthcare. Full story...

Researchers prove 'reality doesn't exist if you're not looking at it'

Life is an illusion, at least on a quantum level, in a theory which has recently been confirmed by a set of researchers.

They finally have the means to test John Wheeler’s delayed-choice theory and concluded that the physicist was right.

In 1978, Mr Wheeler’s proposed experiment involved a moving object that was given the choice to act like a wave or a particle – the former acting as a vibration with a frequency that can distinguish it from other waves and the latter having no frequency that you can determine its position in space, unlike a wave – and at what point does it ‘decide’ to act like one or the other.

At the time, the technology was not available to conduct a strong experiment, but scientists have now been able to carry it out. Full story...

France bets on Bollywood to lure Indian tourists...

From the golden beaches of the Cote D'Azur to the roof of the Paris opera house and the historic bridges of the Seine, the blockbuster movie "Befikre" -- "Carefree" in English -- is filled with picture postcard scenes of France.

The makers of the blockbuster movie, which hits Indian screens on Friday, say it is the first Bollywood production to be shot entirely on the French mainland.

For French ambassador to India Alexandre Ziegler the new movie, which features Bollywood star Ranveer Singh and Vaani Kapoor, is worth "all the marketing campaigns in the world".

"In a country like India, the impact of movies on the dreams people have of visiting an unknown place and on the desire to discover is absolutely huge," Ziegler told AFP.

 "It is without doubt the biggest influence over travel today for the Indian middle classes." Full story...

Famous mass murderer Madeleine Albright urges all-out war in Syria...

Of all the Clinton-era monsters who refuse to crawl under a rock and die, Madeleine Albright continues to distinguish herself as a monument to shameless hubris.

As you might recall, the former secretary of state made an eloquent, compelling case for Hillary Clinton during the Democratic primaries: “There’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help each other!” And television pundits still can't wrap their heads around Clinton's spectacular defeat. Go figure.

Albright is also famous for championing the Clinton administration's decision to prevent Iraq from importing basic supplies like medicine and water purification equipment, which led to the death of hundreds of thousands of Iraqi civilians, including around 500,000 Iraqi children - something Albright said was "worth it."

Europe is realising the extent of its tragedy; Britain must understand its own opportunity...

So confident was the Italian prime minister of victory that he staked his own job on the outcome. Having finally lost a bet he was sure he would win, he has become the latest establishment figure forced to acknowledge the extent of the disconnect between himself and his electorate. In this country David Cameron has already paid a similar price, but there at least the comparison ends. For while the UK has decided on Brexit and will, however tortuously, leave the straitjacket of the European Union, there is no escape in sight for Italy, or indeed for those 19 members of the eurozone who now find the common currency to be nothing short of an economic ball and chain.

There are two important conclusions to draw from this. The first is that, as William Hague points out on the opposite page, Europe is locked into a highly toxic political confrontation between voters who now realise the destructiveness of the currency union to which they have been shackled, and the impotence of their political class to do anything about it. Indeed, many voters embody this contradiction – rightly understanding the economic devastation that the euro has wrought on their economies, but determined to avoid the inevitable collapse in the value of their own assets should there somehow be a way of reverting to a weaker, national currency.

Thousands mourn beloved leader Jayalalithaa in south India...

Hundreds of thousands of people thronged the southern Indian city of Chennai on Tuesday to honor their late beloved leader, Jayaram Jayalalithaa, a former film actress and popular politician.

Jayalalithaa, chief minister of Tamil Nadu state, died overnight following a heart attack a day earlier.

A sea of weeping mourners surged toward the steps of a public hall where Jayalalithaa’s body, draped in the Indian flag, was kept on a raised platform.

Thousands of police officers formed chains to stop the heaving crowd from surging up the steps. Men and women wept, some breaking into loud wails. Several mourners fainted from the heat and dehydration. Police said some had been keeping vigil outside the Apollo Hospital since Sunday and then walked to Rajaji Hall at daybreak.

In New Delhi, lawmakers observed a minute’s silence Tuesday before both houses of Parliament were adjourned for the day in respect for the woman whom many referred to as “Amma,” or mother. Full story...

The German political mainstream is getting increasingly nervous about the effect that the rise of fake news might have on federal elections next autumn. Fake news and Russian interference – either by influencing fake news sites, or by hacking or misinformation – are viewed as a serious threat to the democratic process, particularly since the US presidential elections.

From rumours that Merkel was in the east German secret police, the Stasi, to others suggesting she is Adolf Hitler’s daughter, Germans are also proving themselves susceptible to false information.

The most blatant example of fake news to hit Germany so far occurred earlier this year over reports that a 13-year-old girl of Russian origin, known as Lisa F, had been raped in Berlin by refugees from the Middle East. The story received extensive coverage on Russian and German media who reported the allegations that she had been abducted on her way to school and gang-raped. The attack turned out to have been fabricated, as Berlin’s chief of police was quick to point out. According to Berlin’s public prosecutor’s office the girl had spent 30 hours with people known to her, and a medical examination proved she had not been raped.

But having been shared widely on social media and through Russian news sites, hundreds took to the streets to protest at the “attack”, along with far right and anti-Islam groups. Sergey Lavrov, Russia’s foreign minister went so far as to accuse Merkel’s government of “sweeping the case under the carpet”, heightening suspicions in Berlin that the Kremlin was deliberately trying to cause trouble.

Europe starts to crumble after key vote in Italy...

If you feel like prime ministers resigning after losing a referendum sounds familiar it’s because, of course, it is.

And, in a bit of Brexit deja vu, that’s exactly what happened in Italy last night, when prime minister Matteo Renzi said he would quit after losing a key vote on reforming the country’s constitution.

The 41-year-old followed in David Cameron’s footsteps after saying that he’d step down if the referendum result didn’t return in his favour.

But, yesterday, it didn’t.

More than two thirds of the country turned out last night, with around 60% saying no to changes that included streamlining the Senate and reducing its powers. Full story...

India: thousands gather after Tamil Nadu leader Jayaram Jayalalithaa suffers heart attack...

The south Indian state of Tamil Nadu is bracing for unrest after its ailing chief minister, Jayalalithaa Jayaraman, suffered a heart attack on Sunday evening.

The 68-year-old, known to her supporters as “Amma” (mother), starred in more than 150 movies before becoming a titanic figure in the state’s politics and serving as chief minister four times.

She was taken to Apollo Hospitals in the state capital Chennai where a spokesman on Monday said she had had surgery and was improving, but remained in “grave” condition.

Jayalalithaa was hospitalised two months ago with a fever, dehydration and a respiratory infection but was said to be recovering well.

The All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam party leader has an intense following in the state that is typical of a south Indian political culture, where politicians and film stars can develop a quasi-religious following. Full story...

Catholic priest arrested in Buenos Aires for child abuse; victims are accusing the Pope of knowing yet failing to sanction the priest concerned....

Advocates for clerical sex abuse victims expressed outrage Thursday that a priest accused of sexually abusing deaf children in Italy wasn’t sanctioned by the Vatican and allegedly went on to abuse children in Pope Francis’s native Argentina.

Argentine police arrested the priest, 82-year old Nicola Corradi, this week. Corradi, priest Horacio Corbacho, 55, and three other men are accused of abusing at least eight children at a school for youths with hearing disabilities in northwestern Mendoza province.

BishopAccountability.org, an online resource about clerical abuse, reported that Italian survivor groups told the Vatican in 2008 and 2014 about Corradi and others accused of molesting children at a school for the deaf in Verona.

“Words fail. It is appalling and heartbreaking that Corradi was not stopped by Pope Francis or by other Church authorities. Corradi’s presence at the school in Mendoza was no secret,” said Anne Barrett Doyle, co-director of BishopAccountability. Full story...

A total of 55 British clubs now involved in growing football child abuse scandal...

What began as a harrowing account of child abuse suffered by a former professional English soccer player last month has lifted the lid on what could be one of the worst pedophile scandals Britain has ever known.,

As the inquiry that shocked Britons keeps growing "on a daily basis", child protection sources within Operation Hydrant, the national police body investigating the abuse allegations, reported that 55 professional and non-league clubs are so far involved in the investigations.

According to the Observer's report, a source at the National Police Chiefs' Council, which coordinates Hydrant, confirmed that 55 clubs in total have been referenced by players claiming they were abused.

Andy Woodward, 43, who played in the lower divisions of English soccer, told the Guardian newspaper in an interview two weeks ago how his life had been ruined because he had been molested as a boy by a youth team coach. Full story...

The invisible credit card of the future...

Imagine strolling into your local supermarket, popping your essentials into a basket, heading to the bagging area - where no items are unexpected - and walking out with your weekly shop.

There is no need to make a payment, no fiddling with coins, and no placement of a debit or credit card in a terminal. In fact, there is no till at all.

This is not casual shoplifting but a realistic prospect of the future way to pay - when technology recognises your presence, scans your shopping, and invisibly takes payment from your account.

Amer Sajed, the chief executive of Barclaycard, says it will spell the steady demise of the physical plastic credit card, which his company introduced to the UK 50 years ago. Full story...

A recently declassified document suggests many of us may have superhuman powers...

A recently declassified document that was unearthed through the Freedom of Information Act, suggests that the Chinese government has conducted massive-scale studies on superhuman powers like telepathy, psychokinesis, approbation, aerokinesis, clairsentience, clairaudience, and more. The US Central Intelligence Agency was appraised of these studies, and could have conducted similar investigations, all while keeping the results hidden from the general public.

The document titled, “Chronology of Recent Interest in Exceptional Functions of The Human Body in the People’s Republic of China” can be found on the CIA’s website, and details studies which the Chinese government and other agencies funded to test thousands of children to see if they had superhuman abilities.

The government was so interested in the possibility of these superhuman individuals, that hundreds of testing centers were set up across China. Though they do not reveal the results, except for the mention of one individual, a Qi Gong grandmaster, Zhang Baosheng, who was able to ‘smell’ the contents of messages written on folded slips of paper, and once relocated physical objects from inside sealed containers to another location. Baosheng was named by high-ranking communist leaders as a “healer with extraordinary powers” in the 1980s. Baosheng was later arrested for fraud in 1995. It is said that he and others of the Qi Gong movement took a ‘shortcut to scientific exploration’ and utilized weird science and superstition to promote their abilities. Full story...

Hiding in plain sight: The global paedophile ring exposed...

‘Paedophilia scandals continue to emerge around the world year after year while the corporate media and law enforcement agencies alike fail to treat the sexual exploitation of minors as a global, systemic problem. As the number of child abuse scandals involving the rich and powerful continue to grow, it is becoming impossible to cover up that these instances of child sexual abuse and exploitation are globally organized and often run by the very same people who greatly influence society and politics.

The entertainment industry, powerful political centers, and even organized religion have been shown to be major centers where this horrific abuse has been enabled and widely accepted among the “elites” and other powerful individuals that dominate these institutions. What follows are several examples of the widespread depravity practiced by some of the world’s most powerful people.’  Full story...

Babies for sale in Malaysia...

Dressed in a white jumpsuit, mittens and socks, the baby girl lay quietly in the Malaysian heat.

"I picked her up and she smiled," said Hartini Zainudin, recalling the hot Saturday morning that changed her life.

Hartini is well known in Malaysia as a child rights activist who rescues unwanted babies.

She thought this was another of those cases. But then the woman who had been caring for the baby at a house in the port town of Klang, about an hour's drive from Kuala Lumpur, got down to business.

For $3,000, she said, Hartini could take the baby home immediately and raise her as her own.

"They said, 'You can buy her … or she'll go to Thailand'," Hartini recalled.

She stepped outside and phoned a fellow activist, who told her that trafficking gangs sometimes maim young children before forcing them to beg in Thailand. Full story...

US woman alleges gang-rape by tour guide in Indian capital...

A US woman has told police she was gang-raped at a top hotel in the Indian capital during a visit earlier this year - the latest in a series of alleged sexual assaults against tourists.

Delhi police launched a formal investigation Saturday (Dec 3) after receiving a direct complaint from the woman, who is in the United States and had initially contacted them through an email by a US-based NGO.

"The police have registered a case of rape and will now verify all aspects of the woman's complaint," Joint Commissioner of police Mukesh Meena told AFP.

"We had received the email (from the US-based NGO) earlier but could register a case only after getting a direct complaint from the woman late Saturday," the officer added.

Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj urged police to "bring guilty to book" after initial media reports of the incident. Full story...

The grim truth of Chinese factories producing the west’s Christmas toys...

Xiao Fang thinks she’s one of the luckier workers making Barbie dolls for the Christmas market at the Mattel toy factory in Chang’an.

True, she says, she works 11-hour days, six days a week, and shares a dormitory with nine other women and gets to see her husband only once a week. She had to leave her three-year-old daughter back home in Sichuan. And there is only a communal bathroom, and if they want hot water they must fetch it from another floor. But at least she has a job, she says. And others have it worse.

Xiao is one of thousands of workers in Chinese factories making some of this year’s must-have Christmas toys.

An investigation with the US-based NGO China Labor Watch reveals that toys including Barbie, Thomas the Tank Engine and Hot Wheels were made by staff earning as little as 86p an hour. Full story...
