Shia militias in Iraq have kidnapped and killed scores of Sunni civilians in recent months, a report by campaign group Amnesty International has said.
Quote
It says scores of unidentified bodies have been found, many still handcuffed and with gunshot wounds to the head, suggesting execution-style killings. Many others who disappeared remain unaccounted for.

Amnesty says that in Samarra, a mainly Sunni city north of Baghdad, it obtained details of more than 170 Sunni men abducted since June.

More than 30 were taken from or near their homes in a single day - 6 June - before being shot dead. Their bodies were dumped nearby.

"The killing spree seems to have been in reprisal for a brief incursion into the city the previous day" by IS fighters, Amnesty says

That's a long journey. Tongue
Awesome initiative though. The US has something to learn here concerning refugees from Honduras, El Salvador, Guatemala, Cuba, Haiti...
Do you know anything regarding US policy towards cuban refugees?

Wikipedia page has finally been updated and there's two new interesting pieces of information.

1) The Reform Party basically merged into Unity.

2)  is a coalition including the Latvian Social Democratic Workers' Party, Latvia's generic social democrat party.
Mulling around the latvian wikipedia well using translate has got me this.

Alliance of Regions of Latvia prime minister candidate is some economist who was previously in For Fatherland and Freedom / LNNK.

So, Turkey has now allowed its army to enter Syria and Iraq if necessary. Do you think it's going to happen?

Turkey has no friends in the Syrian conflict: ISIL, Assad and the Kurds - they are all Turkish foes, and any of them could it the country badly. There is no doubt than the Turks do not want to be involved, but unfortunately for them, it seems like they cannot avoid trouble indefinitely, and they are walking on an extremely thin line...
Turkey actually gets along alright with the Iraqi Kurdish government, in large part because the kurds sell them oil.

Jiang Zemin has made an appearance seated next to Xi Jinping at a concert. It is extremely rare for him to come out. He is supposed to be retired since 2004, but he still clearly not. Sitting to the other side of him was Zhang Dejiang, head of the National People's Congress with jurisdiction over the Hong Kong issue. Other members of the hardline Jiang faction were around, including Li Peng (who declared martial law as Premier in 1989) and Zeng Qinghong, a close Jiang ally and Politburo Standing Committee member during the Hu administration. Who was absent? Hu Jintao himself, as well as Wen Jiabao, plus reformist-leaning former Premier Zhu Rongji.

Meanwhile, the People's Daily published an opinion piece stating that, "In today's China, engaging in an election system of one-man-one-vote is bound to quickly lead to turmoil, unrest and even a situation of civil war." Which normally would not be much, except its author is the head of the Internal Affairs committee of the NPC, Li Shenming. And who is this Li Shenming? He 2011 he argued "for the continued relevance of the 'Stalinist model,' and sa[id] that the critical reason for the collapse of both the Soviet Communist Party and the Soviet Union was not the failure of Marxism or socialism, but the betrayal of these values and systems by Khrushchev and Gorbachev."
Interesting that Jiang has made an appearance with XI, considering a bunch of Jiang allies have been purged.

Quote
(Reuters) - Young North Korean leader Kim Jong Un is suffering from "discomfort", state media has said in the first official acknowledgement of ill health after a prolonged period out of the public eye.

Kim, 31, who is frequently the centrepiece of the isolated country's propaganda, has not been photographed by state media since appearing at a concert alongside his wife on Sept. 3, fuelling speculation he is suffering from bad health.
