Indian Home Minister Rajnath Singh has promised an inquiry into how a TV crew gained permission to interview one of the Delhi gang rapists on death row.

 

He criticised the film in parliament, saying it should not be shown in India. A Delhi court has already blocked the film, made for the BBC and NDTV.

 

Film-maker Leslee Udwin said the jail and home ministry had given her permission to conduct the interview.

 

She spoke to one of four men sentenced to death over the 2012 rape and murder.

 

The killing of the 23-year-old student on a bus in Delhi caused shock and revulsion around the world.

 

Udwin interviewed one of the rapists for India's Daughter, a BBC Storyville documentary due to be broadcast on 8 March, International Women's Day.

 

Rapist Mukesh Singh, who along with the three others  is facing the death penalty, expressed no remorse in the interview, and blamed the victim for fighting back.

 

Rajnath Singh told parliament that his government would "not allow any venture that seeks to benefit from this [the Delhi rape] for commercial gain".

 

He said the film-makers were asked not to release or screen it until it was approved by the Indian authorities.

 

Police in Delhi said they had gained an injunction against the film because the rapist's remarks were "creating an atmosphere of fear and tension".

 

In addition, the injunction forbids publication of quotes from the film, or broadcasting any clips.

 

The BBC's South Asia correspondent Justin Rowlatt in Delhi says the issue is not just what the convict says, but also whether he should have been given a platform to express his views.

 

The film-makers have said any attempt to stop the film's broadcast would be a violation of the right to freedom of expression. They plan to challenge the ban in court.

 

Businesswoman Anu Agha, a member of the upper house, told parliament that "banning the documentary is not the answer".

 

"What the rapist said is the view of many men in India. Let us not pretend all is well," she said.

 

Javed Akhtar, a writer who is also a member of the upper house, said it was "good that this film was made [and that] it will reveal how many men think like [the] rapist".

 

Along with three of the other attackers, Mukesh Singh is appealing against his death sentence.

 

While prosecutors say the men took turns to drive the bus, and all took part in the rape, he says he stayed at the wheel throughout. His brother Ram Singh was also convicted but died in prison before the trial.

 

A teenager found guilty of rape and murder in the case was sentenced to three years in a juvenile reform facility.

 

Udwin told an NDTV studio discussion on Tuesday that the film "tries to show the disease is not the rapists, the disease is in society".

 

A BBC spokesperson said: "This harrowing documentary, made with the full support and co-operation of the victim's parents, provides a revealing insight into a horrific crime that sent shock waves around the world and led to protests across India demanding changes in attitudes towards women.

 

"The film handles the issue responsibly and we are confident the programme fully complies with our editorial guidelines.

 

"Assassin Films, the production company that made India's Daughter, has assured the BBC that it fully complied with the filming permissions granted by Tihar Jail."

Basseterre, St. Kitts, 27th February 2015 (MiyVue.com) – St. Kitts-Nevis Labour Party leader Dr. Denzil Douglas believes that an act of “sabotage” was to be blamed for the party conceding its hold on the Federation’s political landscape.

Speaking at the party’s first post-elections press conference, Dr. Douglas said that the SKNLP/NRP coalition won the popular votes at the general elections, but he blames the delay in the arrival of several aircraft for the defeat in several key constituencies.

He pointed out that the Labour Party supporters found the delay at several airports to be very strange.

The former prime minister cited several situations to support his claim of “sabotage”.

“Pilots from overseas airports indicated to us that they were denied landing rights for various places, while those places were indicating to us directly that there were no problems whatsoever. And that the flights in questions had most certainly been cleared to land,” Douglas said.

He continued: “The apartment of a key Labour individual, someone who was intimately involved in the development of our passenger list was broken into and his computer stolen. And as though this was not enough, there was a bomb scare, which was actually called in on one of the flights,” Douglas stressed.

To this end, the SKNLP leader who was seeking an unprecedented fifth term in office indicated that there was no problem with nationals returning home to cast their ballots.

He noted that the constitution allows for returning nationals to vote during elections, adding that all political parties have exercised that right by allowing those electorates to exercise their franchise.

And 2015 was no different, but Dr. Douglas questioned the logic behind the arrival of supporters of the coalition but according to him, his supporters found it difficult. 

“While every plane bringing supporters of PAM, CCM and PLP arrived in the Federation with no complications, a series of highly concerning and downright strange developments repeatedly bosh the arrival of our planes here,” Dr. Douglas said.

“Every single PAM, CCM and PLP supporter that wished to be on the ground was indeed able to arrive here unimpeded. I can say without fear or contradiction that had our flight been able to land, the St. Kitts-Nevis Labour Party would now be continuing the tremendous work, which has made St. Kitts-Nevis the bright spot of the region.” He stressed.

He disclosed that the Labour Party has launched an official investigation into the matter but did not disclose how long that process will take before it would be completed.

“It is well known that on the final flight that arrived after the polling stations were closed, there were no less than 99 passengers who were registered to vote for constituency #1, Labour. And there was no less than 66 passengers listed to vote for constituency #4 Labour. In these two constituencies #1, four votes separated us from the so-called victory, and 26 separated us from victory in #4,” Douglas indicated.

The SKNLP representatives said agree that they would be keeping the new government accountable to all the promises made during the campaign leading up to the elections.

(Reuters) - President Barack Obama on Wednesday told Latinos that Republicans were to blame for holding up changes to U.S. immigration laws, urging them to hold Republicans accountable for the problems in the 2016 presidential election.

Speaking on the home turf of Jeb Bush, the former Florida governor who is considering a run for the Republican presidential nomination, Obama told young members of Miami’s Latino community concerned about deportations that they need to turn up the political heat.

Bush has criticized Obama for setting back the cause of immigration reform by taking executive actions in November to offer work permits and lift the threat of deportation for as many as 4.7 million undocumented immigrants.

Obama's plans were supposed to take effect last week, but were thwarted by a Texas judge who halted the actions. The Justice Department has asked for an emergency stay on that action, and is also appealing the decision.

Obama said Bush’s criticisms were an “excuse” and noted that in the last Congress, Republicans in the House of Representatives blocked an immigration bill passed by the Senate from moving forward.

“I appreciate Mr. Bush being concerned about immigration reform. I would suggest though that what he do is talk to the speaker of the House and the members of his party,” Obama said.

Obama took questions about his stalled immigration actions at a town hall event televised on Spanish-language network Telemundo and MSNBC.

He blamed Republican governors for challenging his unilateral action in court.

Obama said that he is confident his administration ultimately will win a legal battle to proceed with his executive actions on immigration, but said it “will take a couple of months” to file and argue the case.

In the meantime, Obama promised Latinos that his border and immigration officials would focus on deporting criminals and recent border crossers, rather than people who have been living in the country for many years.

"You are going to see a substantial change even as the case makes its way through the courts," he said.

But he told the audience that the law still needs to change, otherwise his actions could be reversed by a future president.

“There are only so many short cuts. Ultimately, we have to change the law,” he said, chiding young Americans for poor turnout in the 2014 midterm elections.

"They'll ignore you if they don't think you're voting."

The masked Islamic State militant known as "Jihadi John", who has been pictured in the videos of the beheadings of Western hostages, has been named.

He is Mohammed Emwazi, a Kuwaiti-born British man in his mid-20s from west London, who was previously known to British security services.

They chose not to disclose his name earlier for operational reasons.

Emwazi first appeared in a video last August, when he apparently killed the American journalist James Foley.

He was later thought to have been pictured in the videos of the beheadings of US journalist Steven Sotloff, British aid worker David Haines, British taxi driver Alan Henning, and American aid worker Abdul-Rahman Kassig, also known as Peter.

In each of the videos, the militant appeared dressed in a black robe with a black balaclava covering all but his eyes and top of his nose.

Speaking with a British accent, he taunted Western powers before holding his knife to the hostages' necks, appearing to start cutting before the film stopped. The victims' decapitated bodies were then shown.

Earlier this month, the militant featured in a video in which the Japanese journalist Kenji Goto appeared to be beheaded.

Hostages released by IS said he was one of three British jihadists guarding Westerners abducted by the group in Syria. They were known collectively as "the Beatles".

We don't know exactly when the British or the American security services worked out that the masked man in the killing videos was Londoner Mohammed Emwazi - and nobody in official security circles is going to comment on how they got to that conclusion.

But we do know that he was, to use the jargon, a "person of interest" to MI5 going back to at least 2010 because he features in semi-secret court cases relating to extremism overseas and back in the UK.

A UK court document said Mohammed Emwazi was part of an extremist network linked to al-Shabab.

Emwazi has been previously described as a member of a network involving at least 13 men from London - and at least two of them were subjected to house arrest control orders or T-Pims. One absconded. Another was killed in a drone strike. The chances of Emwazi ever returning to the UK are vanishingly small.

Emwazi is understood to be about 27 years of age.

Friends told the Washington Post that he was raised in a middle class area of West London and studied computer programming at the University of Westminster. He would on occasion pray at a mosque in Greenwich, they said.

The university confirmed Emwazi had left six years ago, adding: "If these allegations are true, we are shocked and sickened."

Emwazi's friends told the Washington Post they believed he started to be radicalised after travelling to Tanzania in May 2009 following his graduation.

He and two friends had planned to go on a safari, but once they landed in Dar es Salaam, they were detained by police and held overnight, they said.

Emwazi then ended up flying to Amsterdam, in the Netherlands, where he claimed to be met by British intelligence agents from MI5 who accused him of trying to travel to Somalia, where the jihadist group al-Shabab operates. He denied the accusation and said the agents had tried to recruit him before allowing him to return to the UK.

The incident is apparently described in a report published the following year by the Independent. It identified Emwazi as Muhammad ibn Muazzam.

Emwazi later moved to Kuwait, where he got a job at a computer company. But on a visit to London in 2010, he was detained by British counter-terrorism officials and prevented from flying back to Kuwait, his friends said.

It is believed he was known to security services in the UK and the US before leaving for Syria and was linked to a man with connections to al-Shabab, says the BBC's Dominic Casciani.

"I had a job waiting for me and marriage to get started," Emwazi wrote in a June 2010 email.

"[But now] I feel like a prisoner, only not in a cage, in London," he added, "a person imprisoned and controlled by security service men, stopping me from living my new life in my birthplace and country, Kuwait."

The Washington Post said Emwazi was believed to have travelled to Syria around 2012 and later joined Islamic State, which has declared the creation of a "caliphate" in the large swathes of Syria and neighbouring Iraq it controls.

British police declined to comment on the reports, citing the "live counter-terrorism investigation".

A spokeswoman for Prime Minister David Cameron would not confirm or deny reports that Emwazi was Jihadi John, adding that the police and security services were working hard to find those responsible for the murder of the British hostages.

A White House spokeswoman referred journalists to the UK authorities.

The BBC's Rajini Vaidyanathan in Washington says the FBI went on record last September to confirm it knew who Jihadi John was. However, US officials said this month they would not name him as they believed this would be the best strategy for finding him and bringing him to justice.

The London-based International Centre for the Study of Radicalisation said it believed the identification to be accurate. It said that the naming of Emwazi showed that "whatever efforts are made, the ability to mask one's identity is limited or in fact impossible".

Danish police have accused two men of helping the gunman who murdered two people in separate attacks in Copenhagen.

 

The suspected gunman, named by Danish media as Omar El-Hussein, 22, was shot dead by police after he attacked a free speech debate and a synagogue.

 

A film director and a Jewish man were killed and five police wounded.

 

The two men are charged with providing and disposing of the weapon, as well as with helping the gunman to hide.

 

Michael Juul Eriksen, a defence lawyer for one of the men, said they denied the charges.

 

The suspects, who have not been named, appeared in a closed custody hearing on Monday.

 

Omar El-Hussein, the Danish national suspected of carrying out Saturday's attacks, was known to police and had convictions for violent offences and dealing in weapons.

 

El-Hussein was released from prison two weeks before the attacks after reportedly serving a two-year sentence for grievous bodily harm.

 

Michael Gjorup, head of the country's prison and probation service, told Danish media that authorities were concerned about changes in El-Hussein's behaviour in prison and passed on information to Danish intelligence before the attack.

 

The head of Danish intelligence, Jens Madsen, acknowledged that El-Hussein had been "on the radar" of his services.

 

Mr Madsen said investigators were working on the theory that he could have been inspired by the shootings in Paris last month.

 

The attacks on the Charlie Hebdo magazine, a kosher supermarket and a policewoman claimed 17 lives.

 

Denmark's foreign minister, Martin Lidegaard, rejected suggestions that El-Hussein may have visited the Middle East but said he may have been radicalised while in prison.

 

"We are not talking about a foreign fighter who has been abroad fighting in Syria or Iraq," Mr Lidegaard said.

 

"We are talking about a man who was known by the police due to his gang activities, his criminal activities inside Denmark. Whether he has been radicalised inside jail where he was just released from or he has been moving around in these environments before is as yet rather unclear."

 

In the first of the two shootings on Saturday, at a free-speech debate in the east of the city, film director Finn Norgaard, 55, was killed.

 

In an audio recording of the shooting, the gunman can be heard interrupting the debate and firing dozens of shots.

 

Hours later, Dan Uzan, a 37-year-old long-time member of the Copenhagen synagogue, was shot dead while on security duty outside the building. Eighty people were celebrating a girl's bat mitzvah, or coming of age, in a hall behind the synagogue at the time.

 

The gunman fled by car but was traced by police to the city's Norrebro district. He opened fire when confronted and was fatally shot by officers.

 

The condition of the five police officers wounded in the attacks is unknown.

 

Denmark and France remain on high alert.

 

French Prime Minister Manuel Valls said on Monday that the deployment of thousands of police and soldiers at sites across the country, imposed after the January attacks, would stay in place "as long as the threat remains so high".

 

Finn Noergaard, 55, was struck in the chest by a bullet at the free speech debate. The documentary film-maker had a keen interest in the problems faced by the offspring of migrant communities.

 

His friend Malene Trock told Berlinske daily he was "open-minded" and "cosmopolitan". Producer Torben Larsen is quoted by the AP news agency as saying Mr Noergaard was "a very generous and warm person".

 

Dan Uzan, 37, was shot dead while standing guard at a Copenhagen synagogue.

 

He had studied at the city's university and was a keen basketball player, active in a local team. Denmark's chief rabbi, Jair Melchior, said Mr Uzan was an "amazing guy - irreplaceable".

 

Saturday afternoon: gunman attacks free speech debate hosted by controversial cartoonist Lars Vilks One man killed, three police injured.

 

Gunman flees by car - suspected vehicle later found abandoned.

 

Gunman calls taxi to take him to address in Norrebro district.

 

Police use information from taxi driver to identify address and release CCTV images After midnight on Sunday: gunman opens fire outside a Copenhagen synagogue, killing a Jewish man and wounding two police 03:50 GMT Sunday: Police keeping Norrebro address under observation come under fire from a man They fire back, shooting him dead Police arrest two men on Sunday and later charge them with helping the gunman.

Basseterre, St. Kitts, 4th February, 2015 (MiyVue.com) – The world governing body for football is working to have all clubs around the world be licensed by the start of the 2016 football season, and affiliate clubs under the St. Kitts and Nevis Football Association (SKNFA) will have to follow suit. 

 

A document issued by FIFA, the governing body for world football, was disseminated to the SKNFA through the Confederation of North, Central America and the Caribbean (CONCACAF) the body with responsibility for football in the region.

 

The document, which was formally sent to the local association on the 15th January, seeks to inform the clubs and associations of “The Club Licensing System (that) will introduce a set of minimum criteria into national and continental competitions from 2015 and 2016, respectively”.

 

“FIFA’s Club Licensing System is based on five key criteria: sporting, personnel and administrative, financial, infrastructure and legal. These criteria aim to safeguard the credibility and integrity of club competitions while improving the level of professionalism within the football family and promoting transparency in the finances, ownership and control of clubs. Essentially, the club licensing system is a football development tool that will raise the level of club football, both on and off the pitch,” the release stated.

 

Consequently, FIFA has mandated that all member associations adopt the club licensing system, in their respective countries by the deadline set by their Confederation.

 

“In our case, St. Kitts and Nevis, CONCACAF has set the start of the 2015-2016 football season as our target date for full implementation of the club licensing system. Only the clubs that fulfill the requirements of the criteria set out in the regulations will be eligible to participate in the 2015-16 Premier and Division One leagues.

 

“The SKNFA has been preparing member clubs for this eventuality. This was done gradually by setting certain criteria for participation under our rules and regulations. These include: All clubs to have a qualified head coach, qualified assistant coach, youth team, grassroots and women's team, club's constitution, financial statements, annual meetings, etc.

 

The statement continued, “We accept that the implementation of club licensing in St. Kitts and Nevis will come with challenges. Therefore, the SKNFA is committed to working closely with each club to ensure that we all are able to meet the deadline together. We encourage the presidents and secretaries of member clubs to be the agents of change, the catalysts for the transformation of football in St. Kitts and Nevis. In the coming weeks and months the SKNFA will roll out a comprehensive plan for the implementation of the club licensing system for the 2015-2016 football season,” the SKNFA disclosed.

 

Speaking with miyVue.com today, general secretary of the football association Stanley Jacobs stated that the teams would only be able to participate in local competitions once they have signed onto the club licensing programme. 

 

“It is a club licensing programme which will require all clubs to meet the set criteria that would be outlined in the regulations, and once they meet those criteria, they would then be issued a club license, which would make them eligible to participate in local competitions.

 

“It is a club development tool designed to bring professionalism to the clubs and raise the standard of club administration,” Jacobs pointed out.

 

However, they are calling on the clubs to give the club licensing initative urgent attention, and they are reminded to communicate with the SKNFA in the eventuality any problems arise.

Atlanta (CNN)Two days after she was found facedown and unresponsive in a bathtub full of water at her Roswell, Georgia, home, Whitney Houston's daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown is on a ventilator and in intensive care, a source close to the family said.

 

Brown, 21, was placed in a medically induced coma and the status of her brain function won't be known until the sedatives are reduced, the source told CNN.

 

"Bobbi Kristina is fighting for her life and is surrounded by immediate family. As her father already stated, we are asking you to honor our request for privacy during this difficult time," the Houston family said, thanking her supporters.

 

The source close to the family told CNN legal analyst Sunny Hostin that Brown's eyes opened and closed a few times Monday, but that doctors told family members not to read too much into that movement.

 

Doctors were trying to reduce the sedatives to check Brown's brain function, but decided not to and to keep her in the coma for now, the source said.

 

The source added that Brown had some seizures on Monday.

 

Bobbi Kristina, in her own words.  She "was not breathing" when a man identified as her husband found her Saturday morning inside her townhouse in the Atlanta suburb.

 

He called 911 and performed CPR until emergency crews arrived and took over, said police spokeswoman Lisa Holland.

 

The spokeswoman said when Brown was found, she was "unresponsive, meaning not breathing, no heartbeat."

 

In scanner traffic, emergency services could be heard describing an "ECHO-level response" - urgent and life threatening - with "possible cardiac arrest."

 

"Twenty-one-year-old female in the bathtub, facedown. PD's (police department's) en route."

 

Brown was taken to a local hospital, where "she is still alive and breathing. Other than that, I don't know her condition," Holland said over the weekend.

 

A source close to the family told CNN contributor Nischelle Turner on Monday that Brown is in "really bad shape."

 

Everyone is "hoping for the best, preparing for the worst," and "praying for a miracle," the source said.

 

Nobody knows what caused Brown's unresponsiveness, Holland said, but police consider it a medical incident at this time. She said investigators had found nothing to indicate it was drug- or alcohol-related. The incident report referenced a drowning.

 

Police had been to Bobbi Kristina Brown's residence recently. Somebody reported a fight there January 23, but nobody answered the door and officers found no evidence of an altercation, Holland said.

 

Almost three years ago, Whitney Houston was found dead in a bathtub at the Beverly Hilton hotel near Los Angeles, hours before she was to attend a pre-Grammy Awards party. A coroner ruled her February 11, 2012, death an accidental drowning, with heart disease and cocaine use listed as contributing factors.

 

Brown is her only child.

 

"She encourages me and inspires me," Houston once said of her daughter. "When I look at her eyes and I see myself, I go, 'OK. I can do this. I can do this.'"

 

Brown was born in 1993 during Houston's marriage to R&B singer Bobby Brown, which ended in divorce in 2007.

 

The daughter of music royalty became a public figure during the mid-2000s reality show "Being Bobby Brown," in which she frequently appeared alongside her parents and often had a front-row seat to their marital fireworks.

 

Bobby Brown requested privacy in a statement issued Sunday by his lawyer, who said that Brown was at the hospital with his daughter.

 

"Please allow for my family to deal with this matter and give my daughter the love and support she needs at this time," Bobby Brown said.

 

Mother and daughter performed together on national TV in 2009, when the two sang "My Love Is Your Love" in Central Park on ABC's "Good Morning America."

 

Given the pair's close relationship, it's no surprise that Houston's death was a major blow.

 

Days after her mother's body was found, a grieving Bobbi Kristina - then 18 - was taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center because she was "overwhelmed," family friend Kim Burrell said.

 

"She loves hard," Burrell said then of Bobbi Kristina. "She's going to be OK, and we're going to see to it."

 

After Houston's death, Bobbi Kristina talked of pursuing a career in acting and music, just like her mother.

 

In 2012, she reportedly lobbied for a role in a planned biopic of her mother's life. Lifetime's "Whitney," which was directed by actress Angela Bassett, debuted in January 2015, but the Houston family was not involved.

 

Brown did make her acting debut in 2012 on Tyler Perry's TBS show "For Better or Worse." Her performance in the small role won praise from Perry.

 

"She did a fantastic job," he said at the time. "And that kid has a such a future. She's such an actor. "

 

Even before her famous mother's death, videos of Brown singing surfaced on You Tube and were quickly criticized by fans who felt her talent did not live up to Houston's.

 

Concerns that she may have substance abuse issues, as her mother did, intensified in July 2014 after a picture was posted on her Instagram accountshowing a young woman who looked like Brown appearing to be smoking from a bong.

 

The caption read: "This picture may be inappropriate but I want to make a connection with you all. Don't worry this picture isn't recent just hear me out. Do you know what I feel? I feel strange I can't feel any pain anymore. I don't take any drugs as of recently. Things just happened. But then there is some situation that force me to do things and the impact I'll feel pain. I did and I do. I was hurt."

 

Brown later denied that she posted the photo and tweeted that it was done by someone attempting to tarnish her image.

 

Brown appeared on episodes of Lifetime's brief reality show "The Houstons: On Our Own," which followed her life after Houston's death.

 

One of the show's storylines revolved around Brown's relationship with Nick Gordon, who had lived with Houston and her daughter since he was 12 years old.

 

Brown reportedly got engaged to Gordon, and in January 2014, she tweeted out a picture of wedding rings, presumably belonging to her and Gordon, along with the words, #HappilyMarried• SO#Inlove."

 

"(Houston) made me promise several times to look after Krissy ... and, Mom, I will never ever, ever break that promise," Gordon told the entertainment show "Extra" afterward, saying Houston "just treated me like she gave birth to me."

 

It was unclear whether Gordon came home Saturday morning to find Brown in the bathtub or if he had been in another part of the house overnight, Holland said.

 

Police have obtained a search warrant to look through the house, but that's standard procedure, she said.

 

Concern for Brown surged again after news broke.

 

Music director Michael Bearden sent along "healing energy to the daughter of a late great friend." Songwriter Diane Warren tweeted, "I hope Bobbi Kristina gets the help she needs."

 

"Poor thing," Warren wrote. "Almost 3 yrs to the day her mom passed and the same thing almost happened to her."
