Friday 13:42 GMT

The watchdog responsible for monitoring the U.S. government’s effort to rebuild Afghanistan says the 15-year, $5 billion effort hasn’t worked, according to a report released Thursday.

Friday 13:42 GMT

Dan D’Antoni reciprocated late Tuesday night with some remote cheerleading from a conference meeting in Florida as the Rockets produced the shock of the N.B.A. season by winning a 95-92 grindfest on the Golden State Warriors’ home floor, where the Warriors hadn’t lost a playoff game since Game 7 of the 2016 N.B.A. Finals.

‘Astounding ignorance of the law’: Civil rights groups slam DeVos for saying schools can report undocumented students

Friday 13:42 GMT

Civil rights groups slammed Education Secretary Betsy DeVos for saying Tuesday that schools can decide whether to report undocumented students to immigration enforcement officials, saying her statements conflict with the law and could raise fears among immigrant students.
