A woman has been gang-raped by a dozen men on the orders of village officials in eastern India as punishment for apparently having an affair. The village council in West Bengal state ordered the penalty to be carried out after the 20-year-old woman was discovered with a man from another community, a senior police officer said.
The woman was gang-raped after her parents said they could not pay the fine imposed by the council for having the affair. Twelve people have been arrested over the attack.
The incident took place in Subalpur village, about 240 kilometres west of the state capital Kolkata, after the couple were discovered on Monday. The man apparently involved with the girl was freed after he agreed to pay the fine within a week. The woman was recovering from the attack in a hospital :: Read the full article »»»»

Richard Meltz, 65, of Nashua, New Hampshire, is set to enter a plea on Thursday, just weeks before he and two other accused co-conspirators are scheduled to go on trial.
The case grew out of an investigation into New York police officer Gilberto Valle, who was convicted last year of a plot to kidnap, cook and eat women. Meltz is charged with conspiracy to commit kidnapping.
His attorney, Peter Brill, did not immediately respond to a request for comment :: Read the full article »»»»

Australian Media, over the past couple of weekends, have highlighted the nations problem with alcohol. Headlines such as “Take Back the Streets, Two Nights of Living Hell and Police stabbed in Drunken Brawl” splashed across the front pages of the nations newspapers.
In New South Wales the Premier and Police Commissioner gave a press conference after a weekend of alcohol-fuelled violence which saw 540 arrests in one weekend. Police claim the arrests are evidence that messages about sensible drinking are not getting through, and that simply putting more officers on the street will not solve the problem.
