European Court of Justice: Torture victims have grounds for asylum

Today 11:47 GMT

The European Court of Justice (ECJ) ruled Tuesday that protection applied under the European Convention on Human Rights if the health of an asylum applicant with severe physical or psychological after-effects from past torture would be "significantly and irreversibly worsened" by the lack of treatment in his or her country of origin. Britain's Supreme Court – handling the appeal case of a Sri Lankan who said he was once a Tamil Tiger rebel member tortured by Sri Lankan forces – had asked the Luxembourg-based court to rule on the scope of the EU's 2004 directive that sets minimum standards known as "subsidiary protection" for third country nationals or stateless persons.

Salah Abdeslam Convicted for Shooting Police After Paris Attacks

Today 11:48 GMT

Salah Abdeslam, who is believed to be the only surviving member of the group that carried out a series of coordinated attacks in and around Paris in 2015 and then in Brussels five months later, was convicted on Monday and sentenced to 20 years in prison for shooting at the police in the Belgian capital while he was on the run.

The two men were accused of shooting and wounding four Belgian and French police officers who were searching for them in southern Brussels, four months after the attacks in Paris and the northern suburb of St.-Denis that left 130 dead, and days before two deadly attacks in Brussels, one at the main airport and another on a subway train.

After Each Attack He Carried the Wounded. Then He Became a Victim.

Today 11:49 GMT

Just days before he was killed, Mr. Allahdad had expressed to an older brother, Ghulam Sakhi, how tired he had been: “For three months, or six months, I just want to go somewhere where I don’t hear anything.”

He was a retired, medal-winning wrestler, often one of the first to arrive after a suicide bombing to help evacuate the wounded on the shoulders of his muscular frame. On Sunday those shoulders were needed again when a suicide bomber killed at least 60 people and wounded more than 120, including children, outside a Kabul voter-registration office.

In Montgomery, Alabama, the heart of the deep south – which still has dozens of monuments celebrating the Confederacy – Stevenson's equal justice initiative took on a bold project: they bought six acres of land and started construction on a memorial to the victims of lynching.
