5 dead in southeast after Kurdish attacks
ANKARA | Kurdish rebels attacked a police station and a paramilitary police headquarters near Turkey’s border with Iraq, killing five people, including three civilians, the region’s governor said Monday.
The Kurdish rebels, who are fighting for autonomy from Turkey, have stepped up attacks on Turkey’s military and police, killing dozens of security forces since July, but these were the first civilians deaths in the conflict in recent months.
Gov. Muammer Turker said three civilians, a police officer and a soldier died late Sunday after the guerrillas opened fire on the two buildings in the town of Semdinli. The town is located in the mainly Kurdish province of Hakkari, which borders on Iraq.
Ten other people, most of them soldiers, were injured in the raids by members of the Kurdistan Workers’ Party, or PKK, he said.
Youth leader loses hate speech lawsuit
JOHANNESBURG — The black man who leads the youth wing of South Africa’s governing party has no right to sing a song some whites find offensive, a judge said Monday.
Judge Collin Lamont went further than AfriForum, the white-rights group that brought the hate speech suit, had demanded by saying that all South Africans, not only Julius Malema, should refrain from singing “Shoot the Boer.”
Under the ruling, criminal cases can now be brought against those who sing the song or quote its lyrics.
