Keimbar would love to stay on this tiny string of atolls in the vast Pacific Ocean, which he considers a precious gift from his ancestors.
For more than three decades, Marshallese have moved in the thousands to the landlocked Ozark Mountains for better education, jobs and health care, thanks to an agreement that lets them live and work in the U.
While she had been sitting in her seventh-grade classroom in South Africa, her male relatives had received a $570 bride price for her from a man she had never met who was twice her age.
An estimated 125 million African girls are child brides, with that number expected to rise to 310 million by 2050, creating a legacy of “lost childhoods and shattered futures,” according to a report released by UNICEF on Thursday that demanded more aggressive government actions to end the practice on the continent.
Across Africa girls are being married off to pay off family debts, to keep them free of sin or simply because it’s tradition, but the lives of these child brides are ones of violence, poverty and increased risk of HIV, UNICEF said.
JERUSALEM — Three Palestinians were shot and killed in separate clashes with Israeli security forces in the West Bank on Thursday as Israel announced plans to strengthen a fence near the flashpoint city of Hebron in an effort to contain a two-month spate of violence.
The deaths were the latest in a two-month wave of violence.
Since mid-September, 19 Israelis have died in Palestinian attacks.
MOSCOW — French President François Hollande and Russia’s Vladimir Putin agreed to share intelligence information and cooperate on selecting targets in the fight against the Islamic State group, raising hope for closer ties between Moscow and the U. S.-led anti-Islamic State coalition following the Paris terror attacks.
Hollande said he and Putin agreed to “increase information and intelligence exchange, intensify air strikes against Daesh, which will be subject to a coordination to increase their efficiency” and make sure that “the forces combatting Daesh and other terrorist groups must not be targeted by our actions.”
Putin specified that Russia is ready to both cooperate bilaterally with France and with the U.
BEIJING — China said Thursday that it planned to establish a military facility in Djibouti, a strategically important country on the Horn of Africa, which would apparently be the first permanent presence overseas for China’s military and a sign of the growing reach of its navy.
Announcing that China was in talks to build what it called a “logistical facility” in Djibouti, the Foreign Ministry said that the installation would serve to resupply Chinese navy ships that had been participating in United Nations antipiracy missions in the Gulf of Aden since 2008.
Strategically, Djibouti offers an excellent place from which to protect oil imports from the Middle East that traverse the Indian Ocean on their way to China, military experts say.
HONG KONG — Canada’s outspoken Miss World contestant said she was barred Thursday from entering China to take part in this year’s pageant and accused Beijing of overreach in extending its campaign of censorship even to beauty contests.
Lin is an outspoken critic of Chinese religious policy and a follower of the Falun Gong meditation practice, which was outlawed by China’s ruling Communist Party in 1999.
Dressed in black leggings and a belted tan trench coat, Lin was approached by several fellow travelers in the Hong Kong airport arrival hall who wanted to take her photo.
Lin said that after she won the Canadian title, Chinese security agents visited her father who still lives in China in an apparent attempt to intimidate her into silence.
