WASHINGTON, Jan 24: Hours after US missiles killed 22 people in Fata, President Barack Obama convened a meeting of his top national security advisers and endorsed the decision to continue drone strikes into Pakistan.
The US media, quoting unidentified official sources, reported that the first meeting of Mr Obama’s National Security Council focused on Pakistan and Afghanistan.
The New York Times reported on Saturday that the decision to attack alleged terrorist targets in Fata on Friday “dispelled for the moment any notion that Mr Obama would rein in the Predator attacks.”
The Washington Post noted that the strikes (more…)

When Awami League Chief Sheikh Hasina announced her election manifesto in a jam-packed hall room on December 12, everyone was listening with rapt attention. Suddenly her supporters gave a huge round of applause breaking the silence. The jubilant applause was a clear message to Hasina, other politicians, foreign diplomats and journalists in the air-conditioned hall room of a five star hotel where the announcement had been made: even after 37 years people are highly emotional about this long-standing issue.
Hasina’s election pledge about trying war crimes has uplifted the spirits of not only the party workers, but has given hope to the entire nation despite its growing disillusionment from past experience of successive governments including the AL’s, of ignoring this popular demand. Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman’s government had initiated the trial of the war criminals but could not continue due to the (more…)

Venezuela’s government expelled Israel’s ambassador and said the country’s leaders should be tried for war crimes after more than 700 Palestinians were killed by fighting in the Gaza Strip. Some personnel at the embassy in Caracas also must leave, Venezuela’s foreign ministry said in a statement. President Hugo Chavez said yesterday that Israel’s fight against Hamas was ‘genocidal’ and had the support of President George W. Bush. ‘If there’s any shame in the world, the president of Israel should be taken to the International Criminal Court along with the president of the United States,’ Chavez said today in comments broadcast by state television. “How much are the Palestinian children suffering?” Following is the full text of the statement:

Describing several recent escalation in incidents where Sri Lanka Armed Forces have targetted Tamil civilian during festive days between Christmas and Thaipongal, Tamil National Alliance (TNA), in a press release issued today, said that the “stringent economic, food and medical embargos on the war affected areas,” …”are not only War Crimes in contravention of the Geneva Conventions but are also a part of a policy of Genocide that the Sri Lankan State has been carrying out against the Tamil people.” The release also noted with disappointment of the silence of the international community “whilst the Genocide of the Tamil people is taking place,” and continuing military assistance of the international states to the Sri Lankan State “using various pretexts.”
