French special forces kill top al Qaeda militant in Mali

During an operation on Sunday in the northeastern town of Kidal in Mali, "two terrorists were captured and a third, Ali Ag Wadossene, was killed. He is one of the operational leaders of AQIM (Al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb) in the zone," said a French army statement. Two special forces soldiers were injured in the operation in the troubled west African nation where France has had troops since 2013, when it launched an operation to oust Islamists who had seized northern Mali. While never confirmed by France, Mali admitted in December that four prisoners were released in exchange for the freedom of Serge Lazarevic, who spent three years in the hands of Islamist militants. Wadossene was also one of the instigators of the 2011 kidnapping of Lazarevic and fellow Frenchman Philippe Verdon who was found shot dead in 2013. "He who dared kidnap a peaceful French citizen in our country" and killed a prison guard during his brief escape in June 2014 "could never, ever be pardoned of this fact and in his place I would prefer a thousand times over that I be kept in prison," Malian President Ibrahim Keita said at the time. "It is not a denial of justice. We don't have the right to deprive a man of freedom for three years whose only mistake was to be in Mali." Lazarevic was the last of more than a dozen French citizens taken captive in recent years, with those held in Africa numbering up to 15 in the last year. (AFP)

Turning 18, Malala says she’ll remain voice of children | Reuters

OSLO Pakistan's Malala Yousafzai, the youngest winner of the Nobel Peace Prize, urged an extra $39 billion a year for education worldwide on Tuesday and said she wants to remain the "voice of children" even after she turns 18 next week. The cash, to allow all children to attend secondary schools, was the equivalent of cutting global military spending for eight days, she told Reuters at an international education conference in Oslo. "The world needs to think bigger and it needs to dream bigger," she said, saying U.N.

Exposed by Vyapam: Like other politicians, Chouhan is busy defending his honour than showing empathy

In Vyapam each victim, by contrast, finds their death dismissed, diminished, swatted away as irrelevant. For the opposition it’s a political football. For the government it’s more a liability than a casualty.And a Prime Minister happy to comment on everything else under the sun fails the empathy test as well by his silence here. Vyapam is not merely a Madhya Pradesh story anymore than the US massacre was just a South Carolina story.
