Fear grips Bangladesh camp as 2 Rohingya refugees killed -

Fear grips Bangladesh camp as 2 Rohingya refugees killedBangladesh police said they had shot dead two Rohingya refugees during a gunfight in a refugee camp on Saturday after the pair were accused of killing a ruling party official. Nearly a million Rohingya live in squalid camps in southeast Bangladesh, 740,000 of whom fled a 2017 military offensive against the Muslim minority in Myanmar. The incident comes two days after a second failed attempt to repatriate the refugees, which saw not a single Rohingya turn up to return across the border to conflict-scarred Rakhine state.

The first crime in space? Nasa investigates an unprecedented divorce case -

The first crime in space? Nasa investigates an unprecedented divorce caseThe divorce case has details that are all too familiar - two partners at loggerheads, a young child caught in the middle and claims of financial malpractice.  Except there is a twist. The person accused of wrongdoing was in space.  In what is believed to be a first, Nasa is investigating whether one of its astronauts committed a crime while in orbit.  The person in question, Anne McClain, was taking part in a six-month mission aboard the International Space Station [ISS] when the incident took place.  Taking advantage of the ISS’s internet connection, Ms McClain accessed the bank account of her partner while they were separating, according to a report from The New York Times.  The partner, a former Air Force intelligence officer called Summer Worden, has accused Ms McClain of identity theft and improperly accessing her finances, according to the account.  Ms McClain in turn has denied any wrongdoing, arguing that she was simply overseeing the couple’s intertwined money arrangements as she had done in the past.  NASA’s Office of Inspector General is now investigating.  The International Space Station (ISS) crew members David Saint-Jacques of Canada, Oleg Kononenko of Russia and Anne McClain of the U.S. board the Soyuz MS-11 spacecraft  Credit: REUTERS/Shamil Zhumatov The case appears to be unprecedented, with Nasa officials telling the paper that they were unaware of any previous crimes being committed on the space station.   Mark Sundahl, director of the Global Space Law Center at Cleveland State University, went a step further, saying that he was not aware of any allegations of crime being committed anywhere in space before.  “Just because it’s in space doesn’t mean it’s not subject to law,” Mr. Sundahl told The New York Times.  He added: “The more we go out there and spend time out there, all the things we do here are going to happen in space.” The couple were married in 2014. Ms Worden had a son who had been born the year before she met Ms McClain.  Ms McClain wanted to adopt the child, according to the New York Times’s description of the divorce battle, but Ms Worden resisted.  Rusty Hardin, Ms McClain’s lawyer, said “she strenuously denies that she did anything improper” regarding accessing the bank account while in space and “is totally cooperating” with the investigation.  Now back on Earth, Ms McClain has reportedly sat for an interview with the inspector general last week under oath.  Ms McClain, a decorated pilot, was a West Point graduate who flew more than 800 combat hours in Operation Iraqi Freedom before joining Nasa in 2013. She was due to be part of Nasa’s first all-female spacewalk during her time on the ISS, but did not participate in the end.  The case has thrown a spotlight on the little understood world of space law and what happens if a crime is committed in orbit.  There are rules for what laws govern on the ISS, which has astronauts from America, Canada, Japan and Russia as well as several European nations.  National law applies to each person and their possessions, so an American citizen is subject to American law, while a Russian is subject to Russian law.  The significance of legal rules in the cosmos are only likely to increase as commercial space flights become a reality in the near future.

Iceland Held Talks With U.S. Ambassador Over Pence Visit -

Iceland Held Talks With U.S. Ambassador Over Pence Visit(Bloomberg) -- Iceland’ prime minister is open to a meeting with Vice President Mike Pence during his trip to the Nordic island, should the visit be extended.The option was discussed during a pre-scheduled meeting on Friday between Katrin Jakobsdottir and ambassador Jeffrey Gunter, a government spokesman told Bloomberg.Jakobsdottir, a left-of-center feminist and LGBT advocate, is due to attend a conference by Nordic trade union leaders in Sweden on Sept. 4. That’s the same day in which Pence is due to arrive.Jakobsdottir’s decision to not change her schedule to accommodate the vice president’s visit has been criticized at home.Olaf­ur Hardar­son, a professor of political science at the University of Iceland, told local media Morgunbladid it would be “unusual” for the prime minister not to greet the American vice president.According to her spokeswoman, a final decision on whether the meeting can take place has not yet been made.The White House said Pence planned to discuss trade opportunities, the Arctic and NATO efforts to counter Russian aggression in the region.The scheduling snafu is the latest episode in a series of exchanges involving Donald Trump and the Nordics.Pence’s visit would take place in the wake of a very public spat between the U.S. president and Denmark over its refusal to sell Greenland.Trump said Saturday he had held a “nice” conversation with Mette Frederiksen, with the exchange coming just days after labeling the Danish prime minister as “nasty.”In 2017, Sweden reacted forcibly to Trump’s portrayal of the Nordic nation as being in a state of chaos and overrun by crime after an influx of refugees.(Adds quote in fifth paragraph.)To contact the reporter on this story: Ragnhildur Sigurdardottir in Reykjavik at rsigurdardot@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Jonas Bergman at, Nick Rigillo, Andrew DavisFor more articles like this, please visit us at©2019 Bloomberg L.P.

Docking aborted for Russia's first humanoid robot in spaceAn unmanned spacecraft carrying Russia's first humanoid robot to be sent into orbit failed to dock automatically at the International Space Station on Saturday, in a new setback for Moscow. "Russian cosmonauts issued a command to abort the automated approach of an uncrewed Russian Soyuz spacecraft to the International Space Station," the US space agency NASA said in a statement. "The craft was unable to lock onto its target at the station," and "backed a safe distance away from the orbital complex while the Russian flight controllers assess the next steps," NASA said.
