Advertisement OTTAWA, May 18, 2017 – The Canadian Association of Journalists (CAJ) joins those who are outraged at the arrest of two journalists by the Hamilton Police Service on May 16.Jeremy Cohn and David Ritchie were taken into custody after they appeared at the scene of a collision that killed a 10-year-old girl in the city’s west end. Ritchie was later reportedly charged with obstructing a peace officer and resisting arrest.Hamilton police have not yet provided any detailed explanation as to why officers at the scene felt it necessary to detain the two journalists. Based on information from witnesses and other journalists at the scene, neither Cohn or Ritchie were in the way of officers’ work or disrespecting any police tape or other barriers erected to establish a perimeter.

Arresting someone because you wish to restrict their work, or because you believe your policing duties extend to questions of morality, is an abuse of that relationship and of all Canadians’ Charter rights to freedom of expression and freedom of the press.“The CAJ calls on the police service and the Crown to present a fulsome account of why these actions were necessary and drop the charges against Ritchie.”The CAJ is Canada’s largest national professional organization for journalists from all media, representing more than 500 members across the country. The CAJ’s primary roles are to provide public-interest advocacy and high-quality professional development for its members. Twitter Advertisement LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment

SOMERS, Conn. — A co-founder of the Friendly’s restaurant chain and his wife are hoping to turn a replica of Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello home into the centerpiece of a new educational and business centre in Connecticut.S. Prestley Blake, who is 104 years old, and his wife, Helen, had the nearly 10,000-square-foot replica of the Virginia mansion built in 2014 in Somers. It sold for $2.1 million at a 2016 auction.The Journal Inquirer reports the Blakes have submitted plans to the town for “The Prestley and Helen Blake Center for Business, Ethics and Entrepreneurship.” The proposal calls for Michigan-based Hillsdale College to buy back the Monticello replica and operate the centre as a satellite campus.Helen Blake says the replica mansion’s owner supports the plans, which must be approved by town officials.___Information from: Journal Inquirer, http://www.journalinquirer.comThe Associated Press
ATHENS, Greece – Tens of thousands joined anti-government protests across Greece Thursday as the country was crippled by a general strike against painful pension reforms demanded by bailout lenders.In Athens, police said some 40,000 people joined rallies that ended with a brief outbreak of violence when anarchist protesters hurled rocks and petrol bombs at police outside Parliament.The general strike presented the most widespread opposition to Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras’ government so far, shutting down everything from schools to funeral homes, and uniting a disparate group of professions, including artists, taxi drivers, lawyers, doctors, vets, engineers and seamen.Coffee shop owners closed their stores in protest in the central city of Larissa, while farmers maintained highway blockades and drove tractors through the centre of Greece’s second largest city, Thessaloniki.Protests occurred in at least a dozen cities, amid mounting union anger at Tsipras’ left-wing government which has promised to spare pensioners further cuts in the short term but hike income contributions to bolster the ailing system.Despite the pledge, Athens retiree Yannis Kouvalakis said he felt let down by Tsipras’ year-old government.“They said they’d help pensioners and the unemployed and look what happened: Things got worse,” he said. “They’re fooling us.”The pension overhaul is part of Greece’s a latest 80 billion euro ($89 billion) international bailout and is currently being negotiated in Athens between the government and inspectors from Eurozone lenders and the International Monetary Fund.Adding pressure on Tsipras, a report released by the European Commission Thursday warned that pension reforms and new tax hikes would still not be enough to meet bailout targets.“Further measures will be needed in 2016 and 2017 in order to reach the program’s primary (budget) surplus targets,” it said, predicting that Greece will slip back into mild recession this year and that the national debt will climb to 185 per cent of gross domestic product.The disruption from the strike was wide-ranging. Schools and many private businesses were closed while transport, including flights and ferry services, faced delays and cancellation. The strike also stopped the flow of thousands of migrants and refugees travelling from the Greek islands where they make landfall.State-run hospitals ran on emergency staff, while farmers maintained their blockades of highways that forced motorists into lengthy detours.Police officers are planning a demonstration in central Athens Friday.___Elena Becatoros, Costas Kantouris, and Raphael Kominis contributed to this report.___Online:European Commission Economic Forecast: goo.gl/wlq9p8 Protests, EU demands add pressure on Greece’s Tsipras by Derek Gatopoulos And Nicholas Paphitis, The Associated Press Posted Feb 3, 2016 11:52 pm MDT Last Updated Feb 4, 2016 at 3:00 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email A protester prepares to throw a petrol bomb at riot policemen during a 24-hour nationwide general strike in Athens, Thursday, Feb. 4, 2016.

According to the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR), on 2 January, five men who had been sentenced to death by an Egyptian military court were hanged in Alexandria, four of whom had been convicted for an explosion near a stadium in Kafr al-Sheikh on 15 April 2015 that killed three military recruits and injured two others. “We understand the defendants were tried by military judges on the basis of legislation that refers cases of destruction of public property to military courts and in view of the victims being from the Egyptian Military Academy,” OHCHR spokesperson Liz Throssell told reporters on Friday at the regular news briefing in Geneva.On 26 December, 15 men convicted on terrorism charges were reportedly executed, found guilty by a military court of killing soldiers in Sinai in 2013. “Civilians should only be tried in military or special courts in exceptional cases,” she continued. Further, Ms. Throssell said it is important that all necessary measures are taken to ensure that such trials take place under conditions which genuinely afford the full guarantees stipulated in Article 14 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, to which Egypt is a State party. Noting that these include a fair and public hearing by a competent, independent and impartial tribunal, she expressed concern that this did not appear to have been followed as military courts typically deny defendants’ rights accorded by civilian courts. “In cases of capital punishment, trials must meet the highest standards of fairness and due process. Reports also indicated that the prisoners who were executed may have been subjected to initial enforced disappearance and torture before being tried,” she asserted. Despite security challenges facing Egypt, particularly in Sinai, Ms. Throssell maintained, “executions should not be used as a means to combat terrorism.” As such , she said the UN human rights office called on the Egyptian authorities to reconsider the use of death penalty cases in accordance with their international human rights obligations and to take all necessary measures to ensure that violations of due process and fair trial are not repeated.
The rebuilt Toronto Raptors opened the NBA playoffs like so many editions before them – with a loss.But the message in the post-game locker room was: It’s only one game.In a loss that conjured memories of so many Raptors opening-game losses, D.J. Augustin scored a dagger three-pointer with 4.2 seconds to play as part of a 25-point night, and the upstart Orlando Magic beat the Raptors 104-101 on Saturday to take Game 1 of thee seven-game opening-round playoff series.The Raptors are 2-14 in Game 1s all-time, including an eyebrow-raising 1-8 at home, and when they beat Washington in Game 1 last season, it snapped a streak – finally – of 10 consecutive Game 1 losses.“(It’s) first one to win four games,” Marc Gasol said. “You go back, watch film, see what worked, see what didnt work, see what you’ve got to better and play the next game.“Win or lose, we’ll come back and do the job again.”Kawhi Leonard had 25 points but air-balled a three-point attempt on the last play. Pascal Siakam had 24 points, Fred VanVleet had 14, and Gasol and Danny Green scored 13 apiece for the for the Raptors, who went 58-24 in the regular-season for the No. 2 seed in the East, and are making their sixth consecutive playoff appearance.Kyle Lowry, who took a hard knee to the groin from former Raptor Terrence Ross early in the game, had a horrible offensive night, scoring zero points on 0-for-7 shooting.“I think (Lowry) had some really good looks that he’s gonna normally knock down,” said coach Nick Nurse. “We need to get him involved a little bit offensively and we need some points from him. . . (But) I look down and I see he was a plus-12 in the plus-minus and he had zero points, so he was still impacting the game greatly. I’m sure he’ll bounce back and play a little bit better next game.”Nikola Vucevic and Jonathan Isaac had 11 points apiece, while Aaron Gordon added 10 points and 10 rebounds for the Magic, who were 42-40 in the regular season, and are making their first playoff appearance since 2012.Playoff expectations are sky-high this season. After the Raptors had been sent packing from the playoffs by LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers for the third consecutive season, team president Masai Ujiri rebuilt with an eye at a championship appearance, acquiring Leonard and Green, and then adding Gasol at the trade deadline.The Raptors are by far the more experienced team, their 320 playoff games by the starters before Saturday numbering almost 10 times that of Orlando’s.But the Magic, who’ve been one of league’s hottest teams since the all-star break, matching Toronto’s conference-best 22-9 record over the final 31 games of the season, clearly didn’t get the memo.“Our goal was to make the playoffs but not just make it,” Augustin said. “We want to make noise and win a series or two. We feel like we can, we believe in ourselves.”A 15-0 Orlando run in the second quarter put the visitors up by 16 points, leaving the Scotiabank Arena crowd in stunned silence.“It’s the playoffs, you’re going to go up and down,” Leonard said. “Everybody wants to win the game. That dry spell in the first and then second quarter hurt us a little bit, but we were able to keep coming back, and push in that third quarter.”The Raptors roared back with a 20-2 run that straddled the second and third quarters. They took a narrow 76-65 lead into the fourth.In a game with 13 lead changes, seven of them came in the final 12 minutes.The Raptors led by as many as six points midway through the fourth, but the Magic clawed back with a 10-2 run that had them leading with two minutes to play. Leonard’s fadeaway jumper from in front of Orlando’s bench had the Raptors up by two with 1:02 to play, but Augustin answered with a jump shot to tie the game. Gasol had a three-point shot bounce off the rim.Then, a defensive miscue by Leonard and Gasol left Augustin alone at the perimeter and he knocked down the three-pointer to seal the victory.“They made some tough shots, but (our) communication could be a little bit better,” Lowry said. “We’ve got to play a lot harder. . . But you learn your lesson and continue to get better. It’s a long series. Unfortunately we have an uphill to climb but we are made for it.”That uphill climb continues with Game 2 on Tuesday in Toronto, then the series shifts to Orlando for Games 3 and 4 next Friday and Sunday.The Raptors shot 45 per cent on the night, but just 33 per cent from three-point range. Orlando shot 40 per cent and 48 per cent from the three-point line.Michael Carter-Williams took an accidental whack to the face by Lowry midway through the third that had blood gushing from his face, and required a quick mop of the court.The Scotiabank Arena crowd of 19,937 was a sea of red, and erupted in a spontaneous ovation moments before tip-off when former Raptor Jonas Valanciunas was spotted taking a seat courtside. Valanciunas, who was traded to Memphis for Gasol in February, said in a TV interview during a timeout that he “wanted to come and support my guys.”Blue Jays star Marcus Stroman was also at the game.The Raptors were missing key reserve OG Anunoby, who had an emergency appendectomy on Thursday. There’s no timeline for his return.Leonard got off to a strong start with 11 points in the first quarter. The Raptors took an eight-point lead late in the frame, but a running layup by Ross sliced it to 30-25 heading into the second.The figurative wheels fell off in the second. Leonard missed all five of his shots, the Raptors shot a combined 30 per cent, and a running dunk by Nicola Vucevic put Orlando up by 16. Green’s three-pointer with a second left on the clock capped an 8-0 Raptors run to cut Orlando’s lead to 57-49 at halftime.
The two million people attending the Notting Hill Carnival this Bank Holiday weekend have been warned by police not to take ‘selfies’ near the remains of Grenfell Tower.Amid concerns that anger over the tragedy could spill over into violence, senior officers appealed to people’s “humanity and discretion” to prevent a “circus” near the site where at least 80 people lost their lives.As Metropolitan Police faced unprecedented security challenges at this year’s West London festival, officers yesterday revealed how a ring of steel was in place along the procession route to try to prevent a terrorist attack.Steel barriers and a daytime ban on cars have been set up following the Barcelona, London Bridge and Westminster Bridge terror attacks.Officers guarding the perimeter will also have specialist kits to check water bottles are not being used to conceal acid, the weapon of choice in a spate of recent attacks. Many float organisers have provided performers with protective gloves and specially adapted bottles to shower a victim with water to wash off corrosive substances. Police will also use facial recognition software and “super recognisers”, officers with an ability to spot criminals in a crowd, to monitor the event.However, lingering anger about the inferno at the North Kensington tower block remains a key concern. Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily Front Page newsletter and new audio briefings. Chief Superintendent Robyn Williams, force spokeswoman on the carnival, said she had visited relatives of those who died and survivors to discuss how best to deal with how the procession passes the charred remains of the flats that dominate the skyline.“The carnival footprint includes the ward area that Grenfell Tower stands in,” she said. “The community don’t want people who are not resident to be casually passing through and taking photos or posing for selfies.”We will appeal to people’s humanity and discretion. We want people to move through the area surrounding Grenfell Tower so it doesn’t become a circus.”The residents are people who walk around the community who have had a catastrophic experience, and people can say things and conduct themselves in a way that can be insensitive. People don’t know who they are sat next to on public transport or stood next to in the corner shop.”Campaigners at recent public meetings have expressed concerns that some groups with vested interest in fomenting violence could target the carnival and try to use the anger surrounding the tragedy to start trouble. Festival organisers want to establish a “quiet zone” where sound systems on the floats are switched off as mark of respect as they pass the 24-storey block. Party-goers will be invited to wear green to show their support for those who perished and the survivors of the blaze in June.Meanwhile, Commander David Musker, who is in charge of the policing of the carnival, was forced to defend the Met’s robust policing tactics in the run up to the carnival following criticism from the grime rapper, Stormzy, that such heavy handed tactics were reserved for black events rather than predominantly white music festivals like Glastonbury. The musician had complained that the force tweeted a picture of a seizure of one kilogram of heroin as part of its preventative operation in the run up to the carnival. The move was condemned by some as unfair because such a drug would be unlikely to be taken or sold at a carnival.In the last few weeks, officers have executed hundreds of search warrants and arrested more than 650 people, many now banned from attending the event.“What do the public expect of us?” Commander Musker asked. “Last year we had 70 to 80 stabbings, four of them people who nearly lost their lives. My officers saved the lives of those people. But, I cannot remember a single murder at Glastonbury.“We are going to be uncompromising in ensuring the safety and security of the public, and if that means putting a significant effort into dealing with criminality before carnival I am unapologetic about that and I will continue to do it.”I don’t really care what we arrest them for. I’ll be lawfully audacious, as I can, to get them off the streets.”So whether they’ve got heroin, or they’ve got other class A drugs, drug dealing, serious violence takes place at carnival, we will try to target them and get them off the streets.”So it’s a fallacy to suspect that because they’re caught in possession of heroin that they are not coming to carnival.”

AN OFFICER FROM the Marine Policing Unit jumped into the River Thames last night to help two people in the water.A 43-year-old man had jumped in after noticing a 53-year-old woman in the river.He was helping the woman stay afloat.The pair were spotted close to the London Eye at around 9.15pm last night.They were holding onto a pier support under the London Eye when the Marine Policing Unit responded to a call from London Ambulance Service.The marine boat wasn’t able to get close enough to the pair so a male officer from the boat jumped in and swam towards them.The officer managed to pull the woman back to the boat before swimming back to rescue the man.The Marine Policing Unit then docked at the London Eye Pier and the woman was taken to hospital by London Ambulance Service.She remains in a stable condition in hospital.The 43-year-old man was uninjured and he was thanked by the officers for his bravery.Sergeant Yvonne Saunderson from the Marine Policing Unit said, “The quick actions of not only our officers, but also the man who went in to help the woman, ensured that no one was seriously injured. His bravery should be commended, but we would advice that members of the public call police rather than jump into the Thames.“No one should swim in the Thames no matter what the circumstances.”Read: The worst part of my epic 45-day Pacific Ocean excursion?

Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram A 51-year-old Melbourne woman, believed to be of Greek background, lost almost $90,000 over seven months to a fake clairvoyant, after she spotted his ad in a local newspaper. An Alphington woman, who wished to stay anonymous, told the Herald Sun she visited a fake spiritualist named Habib Bamba in March this year, in the northern suburb of Fawkner, for a $50 consultation. The woman became convinced the spiritualist was legitimate when he talked about her medical problems in his reading. The woman made several payments of thousands of dollars at a time for ‘spiritual purposes’ to Habib Bamba, as he convinced her she could rid her of ‘evil spirits’ if she sent him repeated cash instalments of up to $5000. Bad things would happen to her if she stopped the payments, the fake medium had said. By the time the woman reported the case to police and Consumers Affairs Victoria, the psychic had disappeared from his home. On the website of Habib Bamba, one-on-one private consultations in clairvoyant readings are offered, as well as “psychic advice to assist clients in finding clarity and purpose on their life journey”. The spiritualist Bamba was not available on his mobile phone when Neos Kosmos tried to reach him. Following the case of the Alphington woman, director of Consumer Affairs Victoria Claire Noone warned people to be wary of scammers posing as psychics, clairvoyants and fortune-tellers, as numerous Victorians fell victim to psychic scams this year. “Scammers prey on people’s vulnerabilities, insecurities and unhappiness,” Dr Noone said. She also said psychic and clairvoyant scammers approach victims by post, email, telephone or even face-to-face, to foreshadow a positive upcoming event or claim that the victims are in some sort of trouble and offer a solution. According to The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission SCAMwatch website, this solution could be winning lottery numbers, a lucky charm, the removal of a ‘curse’ or ‘jinx’, or ongoing ‘protection’. The scammer will tell victims that they will help them in return for a fee. They also use fear tactics, by warning the victim of a false future event and then promising to protect them from it in return for ongoing payments, or invoke a curse if the payment is refused. “Scammers go to great lengths to make themselves seem legitimate,” Dr Noone said. In the 2012-13 financial year, Consumer Affairs Victoria (CAV) received 13 reports of psychic, clairvoyant and fortune-telling scams. With many cases going unreported, real figures are likely to be higher. The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) spokesperson told Neos Kosmos that scams target people of all backgrounds, ages and income levels across Australia. So far in 2013, the commission has received 123 scam contacts with $481,709 reported lost, the spokesperson said. Last year, the ACCC received 125 reports with $444,895 reported lost, compared to 72 scam contacts with $13,987 reported lost received by ACCC in 2011. CAV director said people should remember that the psychic or clairvoyant scammers may try to convince their victims that their insights are genuine by telling them something from the life of the victim. “Ask yourself: is what they are telling me general and could it be true about anyone? They may also tell you something about yourself that you mentioned previously or that they gathered from another source, such as personal details you posted on a social networking website,” CAV director Claire Noone said in her press release. If you have been approached or have sent money to a psychic or clairvoyant who you think is a scammer, and want to report a scam or learn more about how to identify it, call 1300 55 81 81 131 450 or visit www.scamwatch.gov.au For advice and information in Greek and languages other than English, call 131 450 and say the English name of your language, then ask the interpreter to call 1300 55 81 81.
Supermarket Lidl UK is to increase minimum pay in line with the new voluntary living wage rates from 1 March 2017 as part of its ongoing pay strategy.Lidl employees across England, Scotland and Wales will receive a minimum of £8.45 an hour, and £9.75 an hour in London. The pay increase will benefit 5,500 employees.The increase will coincide with the retail organisation’s cyclical review of salaries in March 2017.The living wage is a voluntary, independently set rate, which is calculated according to the basic cost of living. The Living Wage Foundation announced the new living wage rates on 31 October 2016.Although Lidl UK is not accredited with the Living Wage Foundation as a living wage employer, the organisation is the first UK supermarket to align its pay with the new living wage rates.Lidl UK increased employee pay in line with the voluntary living wage in October 2015. This contributed to a 20% increase in job applications over the last 12 months.Nan Gibson, HR board director at Lidl UK, said: “We recognise the contribution of each and every colleague within the business and we feel it’s important to celebrate our achievements together. So it fills me with pride that our colleagues are amongst the best paid in the supermarket sector, and it’s absolutely deserved for the commitment and value they bring to the [organisation] every day.”Katherine Chapman, director at the Living Wage Foundation, said: “Lidl’s commitment to pay [its] staff the new real living wage rates is fantastic news and an acknowledgement of what we have always believed and advocated; that it is possible to pay the real living wage if you are a supermarket in the UK.“We would love to see Lidl go further and signal [its] long-term commitment by accrediting with the Living Wage Foundation to guarantee that all sub-contracted staff such as cleaners are paid the real living wage. This will also reassure [employees] that their wages will rise in line with the cost of living every year.”
Share your voice Polestar 1 PHEV looks sleek at its Geneva Motor Show rollout Tags 0 Polestar Google Volvo Review • 2018 Volvo V60 Polestar: An oldie, but a goodie More From Roadshow Polestar 1: Polestar’s wild PHEV creeps closer to production.Polestar Engineered: Polestar is still lending its efforts to Volvo with great effect. Volvo We haven’t even seen most of the outside of Polestar’s second car, the Polestar 2, but the automaker has already offered a sneak peek at what to expect from its infotainment system.Polestar, which spun off from Geely-owned Volvo to become its own dedicated brand, launched an interactive site to preview its infotainment system. The site is only available through phones and tablets, so if you’re trying to launch it from your laptop (like I did), you’re out of luck.Once you hop in there, though, you’re greeted with a home page broken into quadrants that preview its Google Maps integration, a calendar, telephony and music. Tapping a quadrant expands it to fill the screen, but there are quick-access buttons to pause and skip music without having to dive deeper than the home screen, which is nice. There are also four quick-access tabs up top that access the car’s cameras, the full suite of available apps, vehicle settings and a user login.Enlarge ImageNo matter the page, the layout is straightforward and easy to decipher from a glance. Polestar Below that are the seat and climate controls, similar to Volvo’s Sensus Connect system. Dragging upward expands the climate controls. Dragging downward from the home screen shows relevant notifications and access to the car’s Wi-Fi and Bluetooth settings.Since some features are tough to showcase, Polestar replaced a couple of them with Easter eggs. Instead of adjusting the fan speed, you can craft a beat, adding or removing sound by tapping each fan speed setting. If you click through to the car’s camera, you get a brief top-down view of the Polestar 2 before playing a Polestar-themed variant of Space Invaders. I am already a big fan of this system, even though I only used it on my phone. It offers a much more sensible layout than Sensus Connect, which assaults the user with a sea of seemingly random buttons with a left or right swipe from the home screen. Having Android underpinnings also allows a deeper connection to Google’s services, for those of us already deep into that life. We can’t wait to check it out in the car itself.The Polestar 2 is going to be mighty impressive with or without the fancy new telematics. This all-electric four-door is estimated to pack 400 horsepower with a range in the neighborhood of 300 miles. In terms of style, looking to Volvo’s 40.2 concept from 2016 is a pretty good place to start. We’re told it will debut in “the coming weeks,” which could point to a 2019 Geneva Motor Show debut in March, if Polestar doesn’t host its own private event before that. 2020 Hyundai Palisade review: Posh enough to make Genesis jealous 2020 BMW M340i review: A dash of M makes everything better Post a comment 2020 Kia Telluride review: Kia’s new SUV has big style and bigger value Auto Tech Future Cars 35 Photos More about 2018 Volvo V60 Polestar AWD
Iranian President Hassan Rouhani.ReutersA day after United States President Donald Trump said he was ready to hold dialogues with Iran, President Hassan Rouhani on Tuesday, August 27, announced that the US must “take their first step” by lifting sanctions.”The step is to retreat from sanctions. You must retreat from all illegal, unjust and wrong sanctions against the nation of Iran,” Rouhani stated on a live broadcast on national television, reported Agence France-Presse.Referring to a fatwa issued by supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei on nuclear weapons programme in 2003, Rouhani said Iran has already addressed US concerns and proved not building an atomic bomb. He called lifting sanctions as a “key for positive change.””So take the first step. Without this step, this lock will not be unlocked,” he said.Speaking at the G-7 summit in Biarritz, France, Trump on Monday told reporters that a meeting between him and President Rouhani is likely to take place in the coming weeks.Describing Iran as a country of “tremendous potential,” the US President said, “I have a good feeling. I think he (Rouhani) is going to want to meet and get their situation straightened out. They are hurting badly.”The news of a likely meeting between the two countries gained momentum after French President Emmanuel Macron revealed at the press conference during G-7 summit that Rouhani told him that Iran was open to meeting Donald Trump. Macron said that he looked forward to a summit between the two countries in the coming weeks.Tensions between the two countries have worsened after the US withdrew from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) nuclear deal last year and reimposed sanctions on Iran and countries participating in oil and other commodity trade with the country.Iran responded by increasing its production of enriched uranium violating its commitments under the nuclear stockpile limit.Rouhani and Trump will be attending the United Nations general assembly in New York in September.
RMG Workers are seen on roads. Prothom Alo File PhotoA worker of readymade garments sector was killed in what the family members and co-workers claimed as police firing during clashes with the law enforcement in Savar near Dhaka city on Tuesday afternoon.The RMG workers had been demonstrating in a few places in Savar and Ashulia demanding implementation of minimum wage and engaged in a series of clashes, local sources said.The dead was identified as Sumon Miah, from Kolakanda village in Sribardi of Sherpur district and he was a worker of Anlima Textile Ltd housed in Savar.According to witnesses, the aggrieved garment workers and the police personnel were entangled into clashes during the demonstration in the apparel hub.The police fired tear-gas shells and rubber bullets to disperse the agitating workers. Sumon was said to have received bullets but he was taken to the garment compound.The workers alleged that the police tried to enter the compound and once again lobbed tear-gas shells.
