13-Feb-2018

In addition to arresting twice as many immigrants who have not been convicted of crimes, ICE also arrested 105,736 immigrants with criminal convictions, a slight increase.

A Peter Martins Ballet Loses Peter Martins, and a Slap

13-Feb-2018

Palestinian girl, 17, stands trial accused of slapping, punching 2 Israeli soldiers

Wednesday 21:52 GMT

An Israeli military judge overseeing the trial of Palestinian teenager Ahed Tamimi for slapping and punching two Israeli soldiers has ordered all proceedings to take place behind closed doors “for the protection of the minor.” Her attorney, Gaby Lasky, has objected, and her father, Bassem, pleaded to the dozens of reporters: “We need the media, and we need the audience for watching and to see what’s happening to Ahed because we don’t trust this court and we don’t trust this system.”
