HRW, Amnesty and other NGOs are making a new call for an international, independent investigation into civilian deaths and injuries during the Yemen conflict. The Saudi Arabia-led coalition continues to commit violations of international human rights and humanitarian law with impunity in Yemen.
Remains of a Russian bomb have been found in the wreckage of the humanitarian convoy that was destroyed this week in Syria, according to open-source research by citizen investigative journalism collective Bellingcat. HRW has said that the attacks on the UN convoy and on a Red Crescent warehouse in Aleppo should be investigated as possible war crimes.
Last month HRW accused Palestinian authorities of detaining and torturing critical journalists. Two days later the secret police proved the human-rights campaigners right, writes The Economist.
BBC Newsnight quizzed Peter Szijjarto, the foreign minister of Hungary, about the alleged 'no-go zones' that his government warned about in a booklet distributed ahead of the October 2 anti-refugee referendum. The booklet links migration to increased terrorism and refers to non-existent “no-go” areas in European cities with large migrant populations, including London, Paris, and Berlin.
