Afghans protest at Pakistan Embassy
By AMIR SHAH, Associated Press Writer
Thu May 17, 2:02 AM ET

KABUL, Afghanistan – About 1,000 Afghans shouting “Death to Pakistan” demonstrated in front of Pakistan’s embassy in Kabul Wednesday, blaming the neighboring country for some of the bloodiest border clashes in years.

Many of the demonstrators were from the eastern province of Paktia, where the fighting between Afghan and Pakistani troops killed at least 13 Afghan border guards and civilians so far this week.

The demonstrators carried banners and shouted “Death to the ISI! Death to Musharraf,” a reference to Pakistan’s intelligence agency and President Gen. Pervez Musharraf.

Afghan police wearing riot gear guarded the embassy in downtown Kabul. There were no reports of violence.

“We’ve run out of patience with Pakistan,” said Sultan Uddin, 50, from the Jaji district of Paktia. “We’re requesting President (Hamid) Karzai to give us weapons and remove the border police. We know how to deal with Pakistan.”

Tensions have been running high between Afghanistan and Pakistan over controlling their 1,510-mile border, and stemming the flow of Taliban and al-Qaida militants who stage attacks inside Afghanistan.

Pakistani and Afghan troops exchanged fire Thursday, wounding at least two Afghans, officials said.

Afghan officials said this week’s border clashes began when Pakistani soldiers entered Afghan territory. Pakistan said Afghan soldiers started the clashes by firing on border posts.

On Monday, unidentified militants killed a U.S. soldier and a Pakistani soldier after a meeting in a Pakistani border region between officials from Pakistan, Afghanistan and the NATO peacekeeping force. The meeting was meant to cool tensions over the border fighting.

Elsewhere, militants attacked U.S.-led coalition forces and Afghan border police in southern Afghanistan, killing one coalition soldier, officials said Wednesday. The soldier’s nationality was not released.

The combined patrol was returning from providing medical assistance to more than 600 Afghans in Kandahar province when it was attacked Tuesday about 25 miles southwest of Qalat in Zabul province, a coalition statement said.

The death brings the number of foreign troops killed in Afghanistan this year to 50, including at least 25 American soldiers.

An official with Afghanistan’s intelligence service, meanwhile, said three other Taliban commanders were killed alongside the militants’ top field commander, Mullah Dadullah, in an operation in Helmand province over the weekend. One of them was Dadullah’s brother, identified as Mullah Shah Mansoor, the official said.

The three other commanders killed were among five Taliban released from Afghan prisons in March in exchange for a kidnapped Italian journalist, the official said on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the media.

NATO has said Dadullah was killed after he moved into Afghanistan from his “sanctuary” — a reference to Pakistan.

In the southern city of Kandahar, health ministry director Qayum Pukhla said six civilians were wounded after soldiers from NATO’s International Security Assistance Force fired on them while driving through the city in a convoy.

Kandahar Gov. Asadullah Khalid confirmed residents were wounded by troops but said he did not know how many.

NATO’s ISAF said it was looking into the report and had no immediate comment.

In Helmand province, coalition and Afghan soldiers exchanged gunfire with suspected Taliban militants in the Kajaki district. An airstrike destroyed the militants’ position, the coalition said. Two fighters were detained.

“A precision strike was conducted when it was obvious the militants were well-armed and had no intentions of surrendering,” coalition spokesman Maj. Chris Belcher said.

Coalition and Afghan forces also detained what they called a suspected trainer of suicide bombers at a compound in Khost province late Tuesday.

In Helmand province, the Taliban attacked an Afghan army convoy in Sangin district Tuesday night, said Izatullah Khan, the district chief. Two soldiers were wounded, and three Taliban were killed in the ensuing battle.

An “honor killing” in Iraq, captured by cellphone

Perhaps videos of the murder of Du’a Khalil Aswad, a 17-year-old girl who was stoned to death in Iraq, can help put an end to this barbaric custom.
Catherine Price

May. 08, 2007 | Several readers have brought to our attention a truly horrible story: Last month, Du’a Khalil Aswad, a 17-year-old Kurdish girl in Iraq, was stoned to death in an “honor killing” for presumably having a relationship with a Sunni Muslim boy. (She was a member of a minority Kurdish religious group called Yezidi.) Unfortunately, the fact that a girl was murdered for “honor” isn’t the news here. The story has recently garnered attention because cellphone videos of the killing have surfaced.

Many of the stories about these videos are accompanied by still shots captured from the videos: a longhaired girl sprawled on the ground, naked from the waist down (she was presumably stripped by her assailants), wearing a red track suit top. For anyone, like me, who doesn’t want to watch the videos themselves, here is a description from the Assyrian National News Agency:

“In a short mobile video clip which appears to have been taken by locals at [the scene] of the murder, the girl is seen being ambushed on her way home by a group of up to 1000 men who were waiting for her to return; the men killed her in the most brutal way possible, by throwing large stones on her head. The following clips show that while she is alive and crying for help she is taunted and kicked in her stomach until someone finishes her off by throwing a large stone on her face. From the clips it appears that the girl was first stripped naked to symbolize that she had dishonored her family and her Yezidi religion. She is lying on the road naked while her smashed face is covered with blood and still breathing.”

There are so many horrible aspects of the story to comment on: that, in 2007, such stupid brutality still exists; that no one, including police, stepped in to help the girl; that religious differences can lead to such violence; that according to a different news report, men can be heard laughing in the background. But the important thing to remember is that this is not an isolated incident. The video provides particularly gruesome evidence of a practice that is more widespread than any of us would like to even think about.

What’s more, this particular killing may have resulted in the deaths of more people than just Aswad. According to the Daily Mail, last week “23 Yezidi workmen were forced off a bus traveling from Mosulto Bashika by a group of Sunni gunmen and summarily shot dead” — an event that several news sources hypothesize may have been inspired by this “honor killing.”

I think one of the most frustrating parts of reading news accounts like this is that they get you upset and leave you wishing that there were actually something you could do, so I’ve tried to find a few organizations that are working to stop this sort of violence against women. Feel free to mention more in the comments section — perhaps that way, these horrible videos can at least do something good by inspiring people to take action against this barbaric custom.

Together with the Organization of Women’s Freedom in Iraq, Madre runs a program called the Underground Railroad for Iraqi Women, modeled after the underground railroad in the United States that helped slaves escape to freedom. It’s specifically devoted to helping prevent “honor killings.”

Amnesty International runs a “Stop Violence Against Women” campaign.

While not specifically focused on honor killings, Women for Women has a branch specifically devoted to helping women in Iraq.

The United Nations Development Fund for Women runs a branch that aims to stop violence against women.

Also check out Human Rights Watch and Vital Voices.

So there’s a starting point. Feel free to add on.

Internal Gaza Fighting Rages on, Despite Truce
Written by The Media Line Staff
Published Thursday, May 17, 2007

(PATV)
The Gaza Strip witnessed on Wednesday another day of violence, as 18 people were killed in internal fighting between followers of Hamas and Fatah. A temporary cease-fire was announced at 8pm, but was violated soon after.

Hamas leader, Prime Minister Isma’il Haniyya, met early Thursday with Fatah leader, Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud ‘Abbas, in an attempt to resolve the quickly deteriorating situation, but violence continued nevertheless.

“Gaza needs a new Mecca Agreement with Arab patronage,” Haniyya’s political adviser Ahmad Yousuf said Thursday according to the Palestinian news agency Ma’an.

The Mecca Agreement between Hamas and Fatah was signed on February 8, 2007. The agreement temporarily ended the internal fighting between Hamas and Fatah and led to the establishment of a Palestinian unity government.

Yousuf added it was necessary to “remedy the shortcomings of the first Mecca Agreement.” He revealed to Ma’an that there had been contacts with Arab countries in this regard.

“There was an intention to bring Arab forces to monitor the performance of the Palestinian security services,” Yousuf said.

Hindu temple: An architectural marvel
16 May, 2007

GABORONE – The building of a P3 million Botswana Hindu Charities Trust (BHCT) temple in Block 8 has given the area a new look that attracts many.

The cream-white and peach church building is undoubtedly the best of its kind in town and the Southern Region as whole. Some call it a palace, while some call it a castle, but the Hindus look at it as a temple.

In an interview, the project coordinator Kuppuswami Bakthavathsalu said the building, which was designed by Mr Muthiah Sthapathi, a well-know temple designer in India is the first of its kind in Southern Africa.

He said the church is unique as the construction was done following the traditional Indian temple architecture, which is over thousand years old and found in the Southern part of India only.

In addition, he said a local architect Sharad Mishalkar was engaged to guide the local construction company that was given the project.

He explained that the construction of project started in 2003 while the embellishment in September 2005, saying the embellishments were done by 10 artisans from India.

The temple has attracted on-lookers with its standing colourful towers. The towers are not just ordinary towers but are different sculptures that tell different stories about the Hindu religion.

The temple has four different entrances but members are allowed to use one main entrance that has the tallest tower while others are used during special occasions.

The temple has different cubicles to be used for meditation, and a double door cubicle for their God or deity. Already there are different colourful statues or the deities erected at temple and some are expected to arrive in June.

The project co-coordinator said they hope tourists will come and have a view of the temples sculptures and statues free of charge.

In addition, he said the temple is open to all, saying people will only be expected to pay for prayers.

The temple will be officially opened on September 16. BOPA

ஆனால்,தற்போது ஆப்கானிஸ்தானத்தை ஆளும் அரசு நேரடியாக பாகிஸ்தானை தீவிரவாதிகளை ஊக்குவிப்பதாக குற்றம் சாட்டுவதால், ஆப்கானிஸ்தான மக்களை துரத்துவதில் பாகிஸ்தான் ஆர்வம் காட்டுகிறது

Clashes at Pakistan refugee camp

The refugees are being forced to move
At least three Afghan refugees have been killed after clashes between Pakistani security forces and refugees in south-western Pakistan, police say.
Both sides say the other started the violence in Pir Alizai camp after officials tried to demolish homes.

The camp, set up for Afghan refugees after the 1979 Soviet invasion, is to be closed down by next month.

Islamabad says the camps are used by militants and drug gangs. Many refugees say they want to stay in Pakistan.

The clashes come a day after violence – in which at least 70 shops and three houses were destroyed – at another Afghan refugee camp, Katchagarhai in North West Frontier Province (NWFP).

The Pakistani authorities also want to shut Katchagarhai.

Opened fire

There were differing account as to exactly what happened during Wednesday’s clashes at Pir Alizai camp in the province of Balochistan.

“The police and paramilitary soldiers went there to supervise demolition of abandoned houses. All of a sudden a few people came out of the camp and started firing,” police chief Naseebullah Ghilzai told the Reuters news agency.

But refugees at the Pir Alizai camp, which is close to the Afghan province of Kandahar, accused police of trying to demolish their homes without any reason.

Refugees vow to stay put

The refugees say that when they resisted, police opened fire.

Correspondents say that about 36,000 people live in Pir Alizai – one of four large camps including Katchagarhai that the Pakistani government plans to close by September. Around 300,000 people live in the four camps.

The camp is inhabited by refugees who have fled decades of fighting in Afghanistan. Although the Pakistan government says that refugees in the four camps can re-locate to other camps in the country, correspondents say that in practise this will be impossible for them to do.

The government has in any case said that it wants all two million or more Afghan refugees out of the country within the next three years.

Highly contentious

Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf has said the camps must close because they are used by Taleban militants and criminal gangs trafficking opium and heroin produced by Afghanistan’s booming drug industry.

A UN report released earlier this month found that most of those still in Pakistan want to stay.

Correspondents say that the issue of returning refugees is highly contentious in Afghanistan.

It is a hard thing to prepare more than 10,000 families to move out in one go

Katchagarhai refugee elder Haji Dost Mohammad

Pakistan census of Afghans

The country’s foreign minister and refugee affairs minister have both been sacked by parliament in the last week for failing to stop the deportation of more than 50,000 Afghan refugees from Iran.

The BBC’s M Ilyas Khan in Islamabad says that news of the impending camp closures has caused unrest among the refugees, who have established businesses in Pakistan and say there is no security or civic facilities in Afghanistan.

Refugees at the Katchagarhai camp near Peshawar have now asked for time to think through a government decision to wind up their camp, officials say.

The government has told all refugees to vacate their homes and businesses in the camp area by 30 June.

‘Peaceful’ repatriation

Pakistan’s chief commissioner of refugees, Abdur Rauf Khatak, held a meeting with refugee elders at Katchagarhai, and gave them 20 days to agree to “peaceful” repatriation, or face forced eviction.

The Iranians are also trying to eject Afghan refugees

“It is a hard thing to prepare more than 10,000 families to move out in one go,” Haji Dost Mohammad, an elder of the camp, told the BBC.

Pakistani officials say the decision to repatriate the refugees to Afghanistan was taken after consultation with the Afghan government and the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR).

There are some 119 refugee camps in NWFP and in Balochistan which the government intends to close one by one over a period of three years.

41 Iraqis killed in new violence
(AP)
Updated: 2007-05-16 21:10

BAGHDAD – A parked car bomb exploded near a market in a Shiite enclave northeast of the capital, killing at least 32 people and wounding 50, police said Wednesday. Hospital officials and wounded victims said chlorine gas may have been used in the attack, but police denied that.

Injured Iraqis from the village of Abu Saydah in the volatile Diyala province lie at hospital beds in in Sadr City Shiite district in Baghdad, Iraq, Wednesday, May 16, 2007. A parked car bomb exploded near a market in a Shiite enclave northeast of the capital, killing at least 32 people and wounding 50, police said. [AP]

Military officials have said that since the security crackdown in the Baghdad region began more than 12 weeks ago, Sunni insurgents have hit back with powerful, and extremely deadly, car bombs that often cause more casualties than the types of attacks used previously.

The car bomb attack occurred about 7:45 p.m. Tuesday in the village of Abu Saydah in the volatile Diyala province, local police said, giving the casualty toll. The wounded were taken to hospitals in nearby Muqdadiyah and the main Shiite district of Sadr City in Baghdad.

Hospital officials and victims said it appeared chlorine gas was used in the attack as many of the wounded were having difficulty breathing and had their sight affected. But officials at the provincial police’s joint coordination center denied that toxic gas was involved.

One man had a white cloth across his eyes as he lay in his hospital bed; others were bandaged from head to toe.

Abu Saydah is a mainly Shiite village about 25 miles northeast of the Sunni insurgent stronghold of Baqouba, the capital of the province that has seen a recent spike in violence largely blamed on militants who fled Baghdad ahead of a US-Iraqi security crackdown.

Kadim Hussein, a 45-year-old farmer who was taken to the Imam Ali hospital in Sadr City, claimed the hospitals in Baqouba would only accept Sunnis.

“My eyes became puffy due the chlorine gas that was packed in the car bomb,” he said, adding he also had difficulties breathing. “Also I had many pieces of shrapnel in my chest and right shoulder.”

A hospital official said the facility had received three bodies and 11 of those wounded who all showed symptoms of chlorine poisoning. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he wasn’t authorized to speak to the media.

Diyala province – with its mixed Shiite and Sunni Muslim population – has been the scene of frequent violence of a sectarian nature as well as attacks by anti-US insurgents.

The clashes between the Mahdi Army followers and police began about 2 a.m. in the city center. Both sides were still on the streets by sunrise, and Nasiriyah’s shops remained closed, said a police spokesman in Dhi Qar, the province where Nasiriyah is located.

He said six civilians, two Mahdi Army commandos and one policeman were killed and 75 Iraqis were wounded in the fighting in Nasiriyah, 200 miles southeast of Baghdad.

The officer, who spoke on condition of anonymity because of concern for his own safety, said the fighting began after the two militia members were arrested for allegedly firing mortar rounds in the area, and their comrades threatened to attack police if the suspects weren’t released.

Fighting often erupts between supporters of radical Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr’s Mahdi Army and members of the rival Shiite Fadhila in mostly Shiite southern Iraq.

வெளுக்கும் வெயில்-உருகும் சாலைகள்
வறுபடும் மக்கள் – இதுவரை 6 பேர் பலி

மே 16, 2007

சென்னை: சென்னை மற்றும் வேலூர் ஆகிய நகரங்களில் கடந்த சில நாட்களாக வெயில் மிகக் கடுமையாக உள்ளது. வெயிலுக்கு இதுவரை 6 பேர் பலியாகியுள்ளனர்.

வழக்கமாக கோடை காலத்தில் தமிழகத்தில் வேலூர், சேலம், அரக்கோணம் போன்ற நகரங்களில்தான் மிகக் கடுமையான வெயில் இருக்கும். ஆனால் இந்த முறை கொடும் வெயில் தலைநகருக்கு இடம் மாறியுள்ளது.

சென்னை நகரில் கடந்த சில நாட்களாகவே வெயில் மிகக் கடுமையாக உள்ளது. தினசரி சரசாரி வெயில் அளவு 110 டிகிரியைத் தொட்டு வருகிறது. நேற்று 111 டிகிரி வெயில் அடித்தது. இன்றும் தனது விளையாட்டை விடவில்லை வெயில்.

இன்று காலை 6 மணிக்கே வெயில் வெளுத்து வாங்கத் தொடங்கி விட்டது. கடும் வெயில் காரணமாக மக்கள் கடும் அவதிக்குள்ளாகியுள்ளனர். பல இடங்ளில் தார்ச் சாலைகள் இளகி ரப்பர் மெத்தை போல மாறி விட்டன.

சாலையில் நடக்க முடியாமலும், இரு சக்கர வாகனங்களில் போக முடியாமலும் மக்கள் கடும் சிரமத்திற்குள்ளாகியுள்ளனர்.

இதற்கிடையே கடும் வெயிலுக்கு இதுவரை 6 பேர் பரிதாபமாக உயிரிழந்துள்ளனர். சென்னை தாம்பரத்தில் 80 வயது முதியவரும், அம்பத்தூர் பட்டரைவாக்கம் பகுதியில் 60வயது முதியவரும் இறந்தனர்.

செங்கல்பட்டு பஸ் நிலையப் பகுதியில், 50 வயது முதியவர் வெயிலுக்கு சுருண்டு விழுந்து இறந்தார். இதேபோல அரக்கோணத்தில் பாலக்காட்டைச் சேர்ந்த 84 வயது முதியவர் அச்சுதானந்தன் என்பவர் சுருண்டு விழுந்து இறந்தார்.

இரட்டைக்கண் வாரவதா என்ற இடத்தில் 70 வயது முதியவர் பரிதாபமாக இறந்தார்.

சென்னையைத் தவிர வேலூர், திருச்சி, அரக்கோணம் ஆகிய ஊர்களிலும் வெயில் வெளுத்துக் கட்டி வருகிறது. இதுவரை இல்லாத அளவுக்கு வெயில் மிகக் கடுமையாக இருப்பதால் மக்கள் படும் அவதி சொல்லி மாள முடியாது.

இரவிலும் வெப்பம் அப்படியே வீட்டுக்குள் இருப்பதால் தூங்கவும் முடியாமல் மக்கள் பெரும் எரிச்சலுக்குள்ளாகின்றனர்.

Mothers-to-be praise yoga for the pregnant

NIKI SULLIVAN; The News TribunePublished: May 14th, 2007 01:00 AM

Enlarge image JUDITH CALSON/SAN JOSE (CALIF.) MERCURY NEWSExpectant moms say prenatal yoga offers physical and emotional benefits.

Melissa Paz ticked off the benefits of prenatal yoga: It builds strength, opens the hips, helps women get in touch with their bodies and teaches relaxation and breathing techniques.
Paz, who practiced yoga while pregnant, doesn’t just know from firsthand experience – she’s seen it in the prenatal classes she teaches at Source Yoga in North Tacoma, which she co-owns.

“It helps prepare them for labor in so many ways,” she said.

“I think of yoga like a massage that lasts longer, therapy, because it leaves you physically calmer, and exercise,” said Cara McCune, who, at 22 weeks, has been taking Paz’s prenatal yoga class for about eight weeks. She plans to continue the twice-weekly classes until she delivers.

“I missed one week, and I could really feel the difference,” she said, both physically and mentally.

There are few medical studies on the effects of prenatal yoga on the mother or child, but existing research shows promise. In two studies, prenatal yoga was shown to be better than walking for increasing birth weight and decreasing premature labor.

Janice Sack-Ory, who teaches prenatal yoga at Three Trees Yoga in Federal Way, has been a midwife for nearly three decades and said she started teaching yoga as a way to help women have a better experience with pregnancy and labor.

“It’s about preparing women not only to deal with the changes of their pregnant body but also the changes of their emotions and their energy,” she said, not to mention the actual birth.

Sack-Ory said she believes the classes create community for expecting mothers, something McCune has experienced.

“Reading books is one thing, but talking to other women is another – you get an inside scoop,” she said.

Paz and Sack-Ory said classes vary, but many focus on exercises that gently stretch, strengthen and open up the hips. Both agreed that prenatal classes often don’t include poses that are as physically strenuous as other classes, meaning even if you don’t have a history with yoga, you can start when you’re pregnant. Of course, check with your doctor before beginning any exercise regimen.

The beat goes ‘om’: Mindful Dog studio adds indie rock to yoga playlist
By Tenley Woodman
Boston Herald Features Reporter

For some people, “om” just isn’t enough.

So yoga instructor Bill Peregoy decided to kick his meditative playlist up a notch.

Mindful Dog Yoga: Related articles, multimedia & images » Mindful Dog Yoga Web site

Sunday marks the debut of “The Bends: Yoga that Rocks” at Peregoy’s Mindful Dog Yoga studio in Jamaica Plain.

“Yoga enabled me to rock again,” said Peregoy, 45, who owned Pop Narcotic, a Somerville-based independent rock label, in the 1990s.

Athletic injuries began to rob Peregoy of what he loved: standing at live shows. So, he immersed himself in yoga.

“In younger days you get out of work, drink, rock out and have trouble getting to work the next day,” he said. “To me, this is the next phase.”

The rock aficionado said artists such as Belle & Sebastian and Sonic Youth complement the intense Forrest yoga method he teaches that focuses on vigorous sequences and holding poses for extended periods of time.

“I really like things that are dramatic and uplifting, so when you are doing the standing poses you aren’t just standing there,” he said. “It’s pretty vigorous stuff. You get pretty deep into your body.”

Aside from the mind/body benefits of the practice, Peregoy said the class offers students a chance to stretch musically.

“It’s like being at a live show. It affects you in a whole new way,” he said. “You are using something outside yourself to connect inside yourself.”

The class playlist is still in the works, but he plans to build the intensity of the music with the difficulty of the moves.

Peregoy opened Mindful Dog Yoga in April. Most who attend his classes have followed him from his previous teaching engagements, or have discovered the studio through word of mouth.

He hopes this new noontime class will attract students who rock as hard as they work out.Those who are still wearing a wristband or stamp from a concert the night before get a $3 discount on the $15 class fee.

His goal is to create an atmosphere that is “kinda like hanging out in a living room.” Participants are encouraged to stay after class, socialize, listen to music and nosh on vegan snacks.
