Child abuse victims in British town claim compensation 28.8.2014 World
A string of child abuse victims in a northern English town have launched claims for compensation, lawyers said Wednesday, as outrage grew in Britain that officials failed to stop 16 years of abuse earlier. Fifteen girls abused by gangs of men in Rotherham -- a declining steel and coal town with higher than average unemployment -- between 1997 and 2013 are reportedly claiming up to £100,000 (125,000 euros, $165,000) each. The head of the local council, Roger Stone, resigned immediately after the publication of the report which detailed "blatant" failures including officials ignoring numerous reports of exploitation.

"The Damage is Beyond Imagination in Gaza": Journalist Mohammed Omer on Ceasefire Deal & Rebuilding 27.8.2014 Democracy Now!
Israelis and Palestinians have agreed to an indefinite ceasefire, ending Israel's 50-day assault on the Gaza Strip. Palestinian health officials say 2,139 people, most of them civilians -- including more than 490 children -- were killed in the Israeli offensive. Israel's death toll stood at 64 soldiers and six civilians. The ceasefire deal was mediated by Egyptian officials in Cairo and took effect on Tuesday evening.

In Wake Of Ferguson, Police Departments Try To Build Trust With Black Residents 27.8.2014 Politics on HuffingtonPost.com
DALLAS (AP) — In the aftermath of the police shooting in Ferguson, Missouri, some police departments are renewing efforts to reach out to black communities to build trust — holding public meetings, fielding questions and letting people voice the anger they feel toward officers who patrol their neighborhoods. Dallas Police Chief David Brown considers it a preventative step. "I'd much rather they shout at me at a town hall meeting at a church and get to know me afterward than not have a relationship," Brown said. After a police shooting has already happened, "it's too late to try to establish relationships." Dallas has had 13 police shootings so far this year, leading to eight deaths. That follows last year's tally of 22 shootings and six deaths, according to police. To reassure the public, Dallas County District Attorney Craig Watkins recently announced he would begin sending two prosecutors to independently investigate each police shooting. Both Brown and Watkins are black and grew up in Dallas. Watkins ...
