"South China Sea dispute: Malaysia accuses China of breaching airspace"

https://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-57328868

Nachdem 16 chinesische Militärflugzeuge den Luftraum umstrittener Gewässer vor der Küste Malaysias durchflogen hätten, kündigte die malaysische Regierung an, den chinesischen Botschafter einzubestellen, meldet die BBC. "According to the Malaysian air force, the Chinese aircraft were 'flying in tactical formation' at up to 27,000 ft (8.2km) and came within 60 nautical miles (110km) of Sarawak, a Malaysian state on the island of Borneo. (…) Foreign Minister Hishammuddin Hussein said the planes had entered the country's 'maritime zone' and that a complaint would be lodged with Beijing. He said the Chinese ambassador was being summoned to explain the 'breach of the Malaysian airspace and sovereignty'."

"Hotel Rwanda hero Rusesabagina in court on terrorism charges"

https://www.bbc.com/news/world-africa-56082268

Paul Rusesabagina, der während des Völkermords in Ruanda in seinem Hotel hunderte Menschen rettete, steht in Kigali wegen Terrorismus-Vorwürfen und der mutmaßlichen Rekrutierung von Kindersoldaten vor Gericht, so die BBC. Die Anwälte des Angeklagten bestritten die Vorwürfe. "Mr Rusesabagina has been internationally recognised for his humanitarian efforts, receiving several human rights awards, including the US Presidential Medal of Freedom. But he did not receive that same level of admiration in his own country, where authorities and some survivors of the genocide questioned the veracity of his version of events at the Mille Collines, where he was the manager."

https://www.bbc.com/news/world-middle-east-56000950

Jeremy Bowen erinnert sich an den Sturz des ägyptischen Präsidenten Hosni Mubarak vor zehn Jahren und skizziert, wie sich die Situation im Nahen Osten seither entwickelte. "While regimes have held on to power they have not restored stability, or consent. The Middle East is in a long and difficult process of change. The 2011 uprisings were fuelled by the anger of young people who were fed up with corruption, repression and unemployment. All those grievances still exist. (…) Anger smoulders across the Middle East."

https://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-55793112

Im Grenzgebiet zwischen China und Indien ist es Berichten zufolge erneut zu einem Zusammenstoß zwischen Truppen beider Länder gekommen. "Chinese and Indian troops have reportedly clashed again in a disputed border area, with injuries on both sides, Indian media reports say. The incident took place in north Sikkim last Wednesday. India's army said there had been a 'minor' incident that had been 'resolved'. Tensions are high along the world's longest disputed border. Both sides claim large areas of territory. (…) It happened at the Nathu La pass in north Sikkim, the media reports said. The Sikkim region is sandwiched between Bhutan and Nepal, about 2,500km (1,500 miles) east of the Ladakh area. A Chinese patrol tried to enter Indian territory and was forced back, the officials said." (BBC vom 25.01.2021

"Tunisians question whether life is better after Arab Spring"

https://www.bbc.com/news/world-africa-55768827

Zehn Jahre nach Ausbruch des Arabischen Frühlings habe sich in Tunesien allgemeine Ernüchterung ausgebreitet, berichtet Rana Jawad in ihrer Reportage. "'Be honest, can you really say things are better today?' It is a question I have often been asked, by Tunisia's poor and privileged alike, as well as those in-between. (…) There is no question that people here are hurting - financially and socially - or that vital public services are declining. There have been annual bouts of civil unrest in recent years, usually demanding jobs and better pay. For 10 years, across the region, I have witnessed a lot of confusion and struggle. A sense of gain one day, matched by a sense of loss the next, and an inch of hope one year that is later engulfed by hopelessness, to varying degrees. Tunisia has been trapped in a soft cycle of that turmoil."

"Tensions are rising sharply in Somalia, as the country's fragile political system wrestles with a bitterly contested election process, the withdrawal of some vital US military forces, and renewed concerns about an increasingly well-resourced militant Islamist insurgency. Diplomats and observers are warning that the country - three decades after it collapsed into anarchy - is once again at a crossroads, with recent progress on rebuilding a shattered state now at risk."

"Trump impeachment: President faces Senate trial after historic second charge"

https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-55658517

Als erster US-Präsident muss Donald Trump bereits zum zweiten Mal fürchten, durch ein Impeachment-Verfahren seines Amtes enthoben zu werden. Nach dem entsprechenden Beschluss des Repräsentantenhauses muss nun der Senat entscheiden, ob es tatsächlich dazu kommen wird. "The Senate, the upper house of the US Congress, will hold a trial to determine the president's guilt but this will not happen during Mr Trump's remaining week in office. Republican Senate leader Mitch McConnell said there was 'simply no chance that a fair or serious trial' could conclude given 'the rules, procedures, and Senate precedents' that govern trials involving presidents. A two-thirds majority will be needed to convict Mr Trump, meaning at least 17 Republicans would have to vote with Democrats in the evenly split, 100-seat chamber. As many as 20 Republicans are open to convicting the president, the New York Times reported on Tuesday. In a note to colleagues, Mr McConnell said he had not made a final decision on how he would vote. If Mr Trump is convicted, senators could then hold another vote to block him from running for elected office again, which he has indicated he planned to do in 2024."

"Loujain al-Hathloul: Saudi woman activist jailed for five years"

https://www.bbc.com/news/world-middle-east-55467414

Ein saudi-arabisches Gericht hat die Aktivistin Loujain al-Hathloul, die sich für das Frauenfahrrecht eingesetzt hat, zu fünf Jahren Haft verurteilt. BBC-Korrespondentin Lyse Doucet kommentiert: "Loujain Al-Hathloul is now even more famous for her incarceration than she was for her bold activism in the campaign for the right to drive. She has come to symbolise the human rights abuses that stubbornly cast a long shadow over Saudi Arabia's drive for economic and social reform - while it keeps an increasingly tight rein on political dissent. When Joe Biden takes over as US president, he is expected to take a tougher stance on human rights violations. But Saudi officials insist they will continue to chart their own course. The Kingdom believes its role as the world's top oil exporter and regional power player matter to the international community above all else."

Die BBC berichtet über die Urteilsverkündung im Prozess gegen 14 Personen, die am Terroranschlag auf das französische Satiremagazin Charlie Hebdo beteiligt waren. "A Paris court has found 14 people guilty of involvement in a series of deadly militant Islamist attacks. The January 2015 attacks on Charlie Hebdo magazine, a policewoman and a Jewish supermarket left 17 people dead. Eleven defendants appeared in court for the verdict on Wednesday, and three were tried in absentia. One of those not in court was Hayat Boumeddiene, the fugitive partner of Amedy Coulibaly who was killed in the attack on the supermarket. Boumeddiene, who fled to Syria a week before the attacks, was found guilty of financing terrorism and belonging to a criminal terrorist network. She was handed a 30-year jail sentence. The main defendant in court, Ali Riza Polat, was found guilty of complicity in terrorist crime and also given a 30-year jail term."

"Saudi Arabia: Three campaigns MBS cannot win"

https://www.bbc.com/news/world-middle-east-55192361

Saudi-Arabiens Kronprinz Mohammed bin Salman sehe sich drei politischen Krisenherden gegenüber, schreibt Frank Gardner. "So what are the issues at stake and why do they matter to those in power in Washington and Riyadh? The Yemen war (…) The Saudis would like to find a face-saving way out of it. But having set out, in their words, 'to stop Iran gaining a foothold on their southern border', they insist they cannot accept an armed militia backed by Iran holding power in Yemen. (…) The imprisoned women. This has been an international PR catastrophe for the Saudi leadership. Thirteen peaceful Saudi women activists have been locked up, and in some cases horrifically abused, for the apparent crime of demanding the right to drive and an end to the grossly unfair system of male guardianship. (…) Just as with the Yemen war, this is a hole the Saudi leadership has dug itself into and is now searching for a face-saving way out of. (…) The Qatar boycott. This, on the surface, is poised to be resolved after exhaustive, behind-the-scenes Kuwaiti mediation. Beneath the surface, however, the problem runs deeper. (…) whatever is agreed in mediation will still need to be borne out in practice. It will take years for Qatar to forgive its neighbours and it will take years for them to trust Qatar again."

"Christchurch massacre: Inquiry finds failures ahead of attack"

https://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-55211468

Eine Untersuchung der Umstände des Terroranschlags von Christchurch im vergangenen Jahr hat festgestellt, dass die Tragödie durch die Behörden nicht verhindert hätte werden können. "The inquiry was launched after white supremacist Brenton Tarrant killed 51 people at two mosques in March 2019. It found he had been able to accumulate a massive trove of weapons, with authorities failing to enforce proper checks on firearms licences. It further found officials were overly focussed on Islamist terrorism. However, correcting these failures would not have stopped the Australian national, who was sentenced to life in prison without parole earlier this year, from carrying out the attack, it said. What's more, the patchwork of clues discovered by police after the massacre - including his steroid abuse, a hospital admission after he'd accidentally shot himself, and visits to far-right websites - would not have proved enough to predict the attack."

Die türkische Rolle im Konflikt um Bergkarabach wird andere regionale Mächte nach Ansicht einiger Experten ermutigen und den russischen Einfluss in der Region weiter reduzieren. "'What happened in Karabakh is truly a geo-political catastrophe for Moscow's influence, not only in the South Caucasus, but across what remains of the post-Soviet space,' concludes political commentator Konstantin von Eggert. 'In effect we've seen an Armenian army, which was trained and armed by Russia, defeated by an Azerbaijani army trained and armed by the Turks. President Erdogan's Turkey has gained a very important foothold in the region.' 'The conclusions that regional players like Turkey, China and Iran will draw from this will be that they can further muscle into the region, in Central Asia and in South Caucasus, without consulting too much with Moscow or fearing repercussions from the Kremlin.'"

Clashes began after some in the crowd threw stones and fireworks at police. Cars and a newspaper kiosk were set on fire and dozens were arrested. Opponents say the bill undermines press freedom to document police brutality. But the government says it will help protect officers from online abuse."

Afghanistan is among the 11 most dangerous nations in the world for children, according to Save the Children. In 2019 it accounted for the greatest number of killing and maiming violations of all the global conflicts covered in the charity's report released on Friday - with 874 Afghan children killed and 2,275 maimed."

"US election results: Five reasons Biden won"

https://www.bbc.com/news/election-us-2020-54782631

Der nach Ansicht der meisten Beobachter feststehende Wahlsieg Joe Bidens über Donald Trump ist nach Ansicht von Anthony Zurcher auf fünf Faktoren zurückzuführen: "These are the five reasons the son of a car salesman from Delaware finally won the presidency. 1. Covid, Covid, Covid. Perhaps the biggest reason Biden won the presidency was something entirely out of his control. The coronavirus pandemic, as well as claiming more than 230,000 lives, also transformed American life and politics in 2020. (…) 2. Low-key campaign. Over the course of his political career, Biden established a well-earned reputation for talking himself into trouble. (…) at least some credit should be given to a concerted strategy by the Biden campaign to limit their candidate's exposure, keeping a measured pace in the campaign, and minimising the chances that fatigue or carelessness could create problems. (…) 3. Anyone but Trump. (…) 4. Stay in the centre. (…) Despite this pressure from his liberal flank, Biden stuck with a centrist strategy, refusing to back universal government-run healthcare, free college education, or a wealth tax. This allowed him maximise his appeal to moderates and disaffected Republicans during the general election campaign. (…) 5. More money, fewer problems. Earlier this year, Biden's campaign coffers were running on empty. (…) From April onward, however, the Biden campaign transformed itself into a fundraising juggernaut, and - in part because of profligacy on the part of the Trump campaign - ended up in a much stronger financial position than his opponent."

Trotz gegenteiliger Aussagen der US-Regierung haben die Taliban einem UN-Offiziellen zufolge immer noch enge Kontakte zur Al-Qaida in Afghanistan. "Earlier this year, the US signed an agreement with the Taliban committing to withdrawing all American forces from the country by next summer if the Taliban ensured groups including al-Qaeda were not able to use Afghan territory to plot international attacks. But Edmund Fitton-Brown, co-ordinator of the UN's Islamic State, Al-Qaeda and Taliban Monitoring Team, has told the BBC that the Taliban promised al-Qaeda in the run-up to the US agreement that the two groups would remain allies. 'The Taliban were talking regularly and at a high level with al-Qaeda and reassuring them that they would honour their historic ties,' Mr Fitton-Brown said. He said the relationship between al-Qaeda and the Taliban was 'not substantively' changed by the deal struck with the US."

Lucy Williamson berichtet über die neuen Maßnahmen der französischen Sicherheitsbehörden zur Eindämmung des radikalen Islamismus. "The French government's general crackdown on radical Islamism, in response to the beheading of the history teacher outside Paris this month, has been rapid and tough - a blizzard of inquiries, closures, plans and proposals that have sometimes been hard to keep track of. 'Fear will change sides,' President Emmanuel Macron is widely quoted as telling his Defence Council last week. The government has announced more than 120 searches of individual homes, the dissolution of associations accused of spreading Islamist rhetoric, plans to target terrorist funding, new support for teachers, and fresh pressure on social media companies to police content more efficiently. Nothing on this scale happened after other attacks on President Macron's watch, despite the violent murder of some 20 people during his tenure, among them police officers, a young woman at a train station and shoppers in a Christmas market. So what's different now?"

https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-54683738

In Reaktion auf Präsident Macrons Verteidigung des Rechts auf eine Veröffentlichung von Mohammed-Karikaturen in Frankreich ist in einigen arabischen Ländern ein Boykott gegen französische Waren ausgerufen worden. "France has urged Middle Eastern countries to end calls for a boycott of its goods in protest at President Emmanuel Macron's defence of the right to show cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad. The French foreign ministry said the 'baseless' calls for a boycott were being 'pushed by a radical minority'. French products have been removed from some shops in Kuwait, Jordan and Qatar. Meanwhile, protests have been seen in Libya, Syria and the Gaza Strip. The backlash stems from comments made by Mr Macron after the gruesome murder of a French teacher who showed cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad in class. The president said the teacher, Samuel Paty, 'was killed because Islamists want our future', but France would 'not give up our cartoons'."

Der türkische Präsident Erdogan hat Präsident Macron nach dessen Bekenntnis zum Kampf gegen den islamistischen Extremismus in Frankreich einen "psychischen Gesundheitstest" empfohlen. "(…) state secularism - or laïcité - is central to France's national identity. Curbing freedom of expression to protect the feelings of one particular community, the state says, undermines the country's unity. Responding to Mr Macron's campaign to defend such values - which began before the teacher was murdered - Mr Erdogan asked in a speech: 'What's the problem of the individual called Macron with Islam and with the Muslims?' He added: 'Macron needs treatment on a mental level.' 'What else can be said to a head of state who does not understand freedom of belief and who behaves in this way to millions of people living in his country who are members of a different faith?' In the wake of the remarks, a French presidential official told AFP news agency that France's ambassador to Turkey was being recalled for consultations, and would be meeting Mr Macron."

Both sides agreed had agreed a truce to start at midnight local time (20:00 GMT Saturday). But an Armenian defence ministry spokeswoman said Azerbaijan broke the ceasefire after just four minutes by firing artillery shells and rockets. Azerbaijan later said Armenia had broken the truce after two minutes. Both countries signed a Russian-brokered ceasefire last Saturday. However, clashes continued despite that accord."
