Riot police used tear gas against demonstrators, as dozens of high school students and their supporters tried to block the entrance to the Lycee Voltaire secondary school in Paris on Thursday, in protest against the rape of a young black man by French police. Students from several schools, mainly in Paris, took to the streets of the French capital to decry police brutality. The protest was part of a series of anti-police brutality rallies attended by thousands of people across France. A 22-year old youth worker, identified as Theo Luhaka, was sexually abused, including with a police baton, during an arrest in Aulnay-sous-Bois, a suburb of Paris, on February 2. The abuse caused him serious injuries for which he was rushed to a hospital. He required surgery due to the severity of the injuries. One of the police officers has been charged with rape, while three others were charged with assault.

So while Netanyahu’s verbal assaults on Iran continued after the conclusion of the treaty, the threat of military action was quietly dropped. The election of Donald Trump went a long way to allay Israeli concerns. During the presidential campaign candidate Trump echoed Netanyahu’s rhetoric, promising to tear up the nuclear deal that Obama had signed with Iran in July 2015. Following his election, however, Trump moderated his position, if not his rhetoric. His administration imposed new sanctions on Iran for its ballistic missiles tests, but these were consistent with the American obligations under the nuclear deal. So by the time Netanyahu arrived in Washington, the threat of a US-Iraniantente had receded. At the 15 February press conference, Trump called the agreement with Iran “one of the worst deals I’ve ever seen”, but he said nothing about abandoning or even renegotiating it.

In an apparent cost-cutting measure, defendant Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra fired The Plaza Live Theater's general manager, who had been employed there for six years, a mere nine days before the shooting, replacing him with a new general manager, Jim Heffelfinger, who had only worked at the theater for 7-10 days before Christina's death, they claim. In the documents, Grimmie's parents also described her brother's heroic actions, during the killing. After Christina's performance, while she was conducting a meet and greet' with fans, Loibl fired three shots into her. His barrage was only stopped by Christina's older brother and road manager, plaintiff Marcus Grimmie, who wrestled Loibl to the ground, before Loibl broke free and killed himself. Marcus sustained a quadriceps tear on his left leg and body bruises as a result of his heroic actions, and lives with the emotional distress resulting from witnessing his sister being shot to death in front of him, they claim.

Move over, Manchester by the Sea , because Seth Meyers just made this years top Oscar contender . On Late Night , Meyers unveiled a new movie that Academy voters simply wont be able to resist Oscar Bait , the film that, at least according to the trailer, the Los Angeles Times called, The most blatant attempt to win an Oscar since The Kings Speech . The tear-jerking movie stars Meyers as a seemingly tragic figure intent on staring intensely into the distance, making dramatic eye contact with a small child, and deeply contemplating lost opportunities in his past. As the trailer points out, the film has everything that Oscar voters typically prize from racial tension to pretentiously artist shots of a mans hand grazing wheat to a rare disease that must be overcome. Perhaps most importantly, the film features a man staring at trains.

"These hardcore fans caused trouble last time so we want this zone to be occupied by students," FAT spokesman Patit Suphaphongs told AFP, saying that the ticket-holders would be reimbursed. Thailand are due to play Saudi Arabia, Iraq and the UAE in final qualifying for the 2018 World Cup. Thai domestic football often has problems with hooliganism and violence after matches. Last September Thai police resorted to tear gas to break up a brawl that saw fans of two rival Bangkok clubs throw rocks, bottles and at least one petrol bomb outside the stadium during a game. Authorities around the world have also been trying to curb the rising use of flares, fireworks and smoke bombs by abandoning matches, fining teams and deducting points. In December 2016, league matches in both Belgium and France were called off after fans fired fireworks and flares at each other. — AFP

They roar beyond checkpoints of Israeli soldiers and zip through the glare of religious conservatives who curse their humming pistons and blowing hair. Shifting gears and beating clocks, they are restless souls in a sequestered world that cannot contain their visions. They are the Speed Sisters of the West Bank. Male competitors have accepted them in a culture where tradition and patriarchy run rigid and deep. The young women have also grown up with the pop of Israeli tear gas and the whistle of stones hurled by Palestinian youths. They fix their makeup and paint their nails because, as Betty, one of the swiftest among them, says, it's very important for me to show I'm not a tomboy. Amber Fares has captured their spirit, victories, rivalries and defeats in her documentary Speed Sisters. The film moves past the politics of the Arab-Israeli conflict and into the lives of five women with fuel-injected dreams.

“When I lived in New York, when I read and heard all those lies about my country and my city, I felt so helpless. I couldnt explain the truth, as nobody around me was willing to listen.” Old rattles have been played day and night on the BBC, the CNN and many other official channels of the West: the tear-jerking stories depicting the plights of the migrant workers, or some gruesome portrayals of China’s human rights record (all based on extremely arrogant Western dogmas, thoroughly incompatible with Chinese and Asian culture), or the mainstream interpretation of the Tiananmen Square events, or the loud and hypocritical laments about the disappearance of some old neighborhoods, and not to speak of the loud salvoes fired against Beijing’s ‘disastrousair pollution and traffic jams. When a tremendous effort by the government had been made to accommodate the migrant workers arriving from the poorer provinces to Beijing and to other major cities, and when, simultaneously, the standard of living began to rise dramatically all over the Chinese countryside, the topic got quietly shelved.

One corporation, multiple newsrooms, he said. OKeefe said hed be releasing the footage WikiLeaks-style. In fact, WikiLeaks has several distinct styles. At times, the organization has worked with major media outlets to break stories. In other instances, it has dumped everything it had on the internet at once. In the case of the John Podesta emails, WikiLeaks released new batches day by day. OKeefe wouldnt divulge which particular network would be hit, but said it was one President Donald Trump has spent much time talking about recently. Its the one hes always targeting, OKeefe said. That would seem to suggest CNN. Trump has been on a tear against the network since it revealed the existence of an allegedly embarrassing dossier that intelligence agencies were investigating .

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D., N.Y.) defended himself on Tuesday against President Trump's accusation that Schumer was shedding "fake tears" at a press conference. During an appearance on ABC's "The View," Schumer said Trump doesn't know him, and some topics make him emotional. "Before we do anything, you haven't really responded to that remark, so we just wanted to provide the tissues in case, you know, you start to tear up because you never know," co-host Whoopi Goldberg said. Schumer held up a box of tissues for the camera. "Is there anything you want to tell him now?" Goldberg asked. Schumer started off by saying that Trump does not know him. "He doesnt know me," he said. "He says he knows me—I get tearful." To further prove that Trump was wrong, he listed other tearful events in his life, such as his daughter's wedding and seeing the movie "Free Willy.

Quoting Hebrew University philosopher Moshe Halbertal, Friedman warns that the debate “will not be about which are the best borders to defend the state of Israel”, “but whether the state is worth defending in moral terms.” This “right versus wrongpun is so amazing to Friedman himself, that he repeats it in the next paragraph, where he also bemoans the supposed absence of a “Palestinian partner for a secure peace”, summating that Israeli legalizing of land grab “is an act of moral turpitude that will make it even harder to ever find that Palestinian partner and will undermine the moral foundations of the state. This is about right versus wrong ”, he emphasizes. And such a moral abyss is unthinkable for Friedman. Not because of what it does for Palestinians – but because of what it will do to Jewish golfers : “And if that is where the debate goes, what happened at Woodmont golf club will happen everywhere”, he warns, and continues to depict the dire, indeed detrimental chain-reaction of this moral A-bomb: “That debate will tear apart virtually every synagogue, Jewish organization and Jewish group on every campus in America, and around the world.
