More than 200 Syrian civil war refugees started a hunger strike Monday in front of Greece's Parliament, urging the government to grant them temporary working and residence rights.
Fadel, who had worked as a chain store manager and fashion designer for women's clothing before fleeing Syria, made the hazardous journey across Turkey and by boat illegally to the Greek island of Kos.
On Sunday, the regional governor of greater Athens, Rena Dourou, visited the protesters and said she had contacted the Greek Orthodox Church and the government to try and make arrangements to provide temporary shelter for Syrian refugees.
Israel Ticas calls himself the "lawyer for the dead," the man who can bring justice to the buried victims of El Salvador's brutal violence.
The self-taught forensic scientist says he has opened about 90 common graves with more than 700 bodies over the past 12 years — and that is just a fraction of what is out there in a country in the clutch of street gangs, and haunted by the memories of a brutal civil war.
In an unusual break, police captured three of the rival 18th Street gangsters and chased others into this arroyo with the fresh graves to help them locate the bodies.
Some would argue digging up graves is a fool's errand in El Salvador, which has the world's second highest per capita homicide rate, and from which thousands of men, women and children flee each year.
 this is a vocation for Ticas, a stocky systems engineer turned police detective who looks younger than his 51 years.
Rather, he is a technician serving the rule of law from a small office that looks like a museum of horrors, with models of skulls and limbs, and walls papered in photographs of severed heads and salvaged bodies.
In many cases he interviews protected witnesses, who provide details of murder: "She was killed because she knew too much about gang movements and security houses," according to one account.
Ticas pulls a metal box out of his desk stuffed with photographs, identity documents and letters from desperate mothers who come knocking on his door.
A Missouri grand jury has been hearing evidence for months as it weighs whether to indict Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson in the Aug. 9 fatal shooting of Michael Brown, which was followed by sometimes violent protests.
The grand jury is considering whether there is enough evidence to charge Wilson with a crime and, if so, what that charge should be.
The grand jury will determine only whether probable cause exists to indict Wilson, not whether he is guilty.
If the jury indicts him, a separate trial jury will be seated to decide whether to convict or acquit him.
The grand jury had been hearing routine cases around the time Brown was killed and then turned its attention to the shooting.
A grand jury is a powerful tool for investigating crimes because witnesses must testify unless they invoke the 5th Amendment of the U.
In the summer of 1961, Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev issued an ultimatum to Western powers: Work with him to resolve the status of Berlin by December 31, 1961, or the Soviet Union would sign its own peace treaty with East Germany. In the U. S., President Kennedy warned of a "cold winter" ahead.
