Court blocks release of American suspect
LAHORE | A Pakistani court ordered the government Tuesday not to release a U.S. official arrested in the shooting deaths of two Pakistanis despite U.S. insistence that he has diplomatic immunity and has been detained illegally.
Some legal experts questioned whether the court had the authority to issue such orders, but the rulings could further complicate what has become a serious diplomatic spat between the two countries.
The U.S. Embassy in Islamabad has argued that the American, who it has not named, acted in self-defense when he shot the two men in Lahore on Thursday because they were trying to rob him at gunpoint.
Report: Russia loses control of satellite
MOSCOW | A Russian news agency said the country’s space forces have lost contact with a newly launched military satellite.
Tass said the military has failed to establish radio communications with the satellite launched Tuesday from the northern Plesetsk launchpad. There was no immediate comment from the Defense Ministry.
The military said earlier the satellite was put into orbit by a Rokot booster rocket.
The state-controlled Khrunichev rocket maker said on its website the GEO-IK-2 Reshetnev satellite was intended for geodetic studies, which involve measuring or determining the shape of the earth, or with locating exactly points on its surface.
The apparent mishap follows a failed launch of three GLONASS-M satellites in December, which cost two space officials their jobs.
