  • "It's miraculous no one was hurt," Lt Col Staci Coleman, the US air force officer who runs the airfield, told reporters on Monday at the vast base deep in the western Anbar desert in Iraq, where 1,500 Americans were deployed. "Who thinks they're going to have ballistic missiles launched at them ... and suffer no casualties?"

    Asserting that students in Maharashtra were safe, Thackeray said he will not tolerate any move to hurt them. At least 28 people, including JNU Students' Union (JNUSU) president Aishe Ghosh, were injured as chaos reigned on the campus for nearly two hours.

    This will be after over two decades that the 'black cat' commandos of the elite counter-terror force will be taken out from VIP protection duties, a task not originally charted for it when the force was conceptualised and raised in 1984.

    Davinder Singh was arrested on Saturday along with Naveed alias Babu, another militant Rafi Rather and an alleged Over Ground Worker Irfan Dar, in a car on highway in Kulgam district, when they were on way to Jammu. J&K police currently interrogating Singh and Naveed are also investigating, whether they were on way to execute any big attack or not.

He was in the wanted list of security forces. He is involved in eight cases, seven in 2016 and one in 2019.

    In an interview to the ruling Chinese Communist Party's official newspaper, the People's Daily, about China's diplomatic achievements in 2019, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi mentioned post-Pulwama tensions and Beijing's attempts to bring peace between India and Pakistan.

    Whether the killing is framed as part of an armed conflict between two states or as a police action intended to deter terrorism, it cannot be characterized as an act of self-defense because there was never a full-fledged and direct attack on the United States by Iran. US laws prohibit assassination both in peacetime law as well as on the battlefield.

    Referring to the recent violence at the JNU campus, Adityanath said, "Leftist groups created an atmosphere of violence by resorting to lies, but Delhi Police has unearthed the conspiracy they had hatched to disrupt the examination process at JNU."

    The world's oldest premier Mahathir Mohamad, who has in recent months stoked diplomatic tensions by speaking out on issues concerning the Muslim world, also said the U.S. drone attack on Soleimani was against international laws.
