Burma leader on historic first visit to Sweden

“We have tried to solve this for 70 years. We have made some progress, but there is still much left to do,” Aung San Suu Kyi told media at a press conference alongside prime minister Stefan Löfven.The leader of the National League for Democracy and State secretary who became an International symbol of peaceful resistance following years of house arrest, defended what many have said has been her silence while human rights abuses were allegedly committed by the military against the Rohingya Muslim minority last year.Explaining why she rejected a United Nations probe into alleged human rights abuses, Aung San Suu Kyi said it would have inflamed ethnic tensions between Buddhist Burmese and the Muslim Rohinya minority.”It would have created greater hostility between the different communities,” the 71-year-old told reporters in Stockholm.

The way Jones sees it, shadowy groups within the U.S. government orchestrated—or at least refrained from preventing—the 9/11 attacks, the Boston Marathon massacre, the bombing of Oklahoma City’s Murrah federal building, and the mass shootings in Aurora, Colorado, and at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut. He has even suggested that President Obama was responsible for the 2013 Oklahoma tornado outbreak. When Jared Lee Loughner went on his January 2011 rampage in Tucson, killing six people and severely wounding U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.), Jones told Rolling Stone: “This whole thing stinks to high heaven. … My gut tells me this was a staged mind-control operation. The government employs geometric psychological-warfare experts that know exactly how to indirectly manipulate unstable people through the media.”Kelly’s assertion that many don’t know him is probably true. He only has around 600,000 followers on Twitter (though that number will likely jump post NBC interview). And even though that may be true it is irrelevant.

Cholera is now killing more people than bombs and bullets in Yemen, in a raging outbreak that is out of control thanks to the inability of the country to cope after more than two years of war.According to the latest (and always growing) numbers, 923 people have died of cholera in Yemen since the end of April, 532 in May alone. For comparison, the UN recorded violent deaths of 98 civilians in May.When IRIN first reported on Yemen’s cholera outbreak in the middle of last month, it was bad: hospitals in the capital of Sana’a were overflowing, and humanitarians were racing to contain the disease.
