  • Turkey lira crisis highlights emerging currencies plight news

    Much of the Turkish lira's plight may be homegrown, but it shares some key vulnerabilities with other emerging countries whose currencies are now also plunging as fear of contagion spreads, analysts say. South Africa, Argentina, Mexico, Brazil and Russia have all seen their currencies slip over the past week because, like Turkey, they remain heavily dependent on foreign capital, especially the dollar. "This is a typical 'flight to quality' move from foreign investors out of emerging markets to safer, developed countries," Agathe Demarais, lead Turkey analyst at the Economist Intelligence Unit, told AFP.

  • China rejects allegations of detaining million Uighurs in camps in Xinjiang news

    Hu Lianhe, a senior Communist Party official, said authorities in the far western Xinjiang region guarantee citizens freedom of religious belief and protects "normal religious activities". China says that Xinjiang faces a serious threat from Islamist militants and separatists who plot attacks and stir up tensions between the mostly Muslim Uighur minority who call the region home and the ethnic Han Chinese majority. Gay McDougall, a panel member, said on Friday it had received many credible reports that 1 million ethnic Uighurs were held in what resembles a "massive internment camp that is shrouded in secrecy, a sort of no rights zone".

  • United States uses fentanyl for first time in execution of killer news

    A killer has been executed using the controversial opioid fentanyl for the first time in the United States. Carey Dean Moore, 60, who had been on death row for 38 years, died by lethal injection in Nebraska. An unprecedented combination of four drugs, including the first use of fentanyl in an execution, was employed to put him to death. Fentanyl, a powerful synthetic opioid, is at the centre of the US opioid crisis, which is claiming tens of thousands of lives a year. Prince, the late musician, died after taking fentanyl in 2016. Fresenius Kabi, a German drug company, tried to block the Nebraska execution by alleging the state had illicitly obtained drugs, but a judge refused to stay it. The company accused Nebraska of improperly using its drugs. Nebraska argued that one of its execution drugs was set to expire on Aug 31, and that prison officials would not be able to purchase more. It was the first execution in Nebraska since 1997. At a glance | Fentanyl Moore was one of the nation's longest-serving death row inmates. His execution came three years after Nebraska abolished the death penalty, only to have it reinstated the following year in a referendum when 61 per cent of voters backed capital punishment. Moore died at the at the Nebraska State Penitentiary in Lincoln. He had been convicted of the 1979 shooting deaths of two Omaha cab drivers, Maynard Helgeland and Reuel Van Ness Jr. The unprecedented Nebraska lethal injection cocktail called for an initial IV dose of diazepam, commonly known as Valium, to render the inmate unconscious. Fentanyl was then administered, followed by cisatracurium besylate to induce paralysis and stop the inmate from breathing, then potassium chloride to stop the heart. After each injection prison officials sent saline through the IV to flush out any residue and ensure all the drugs have entered the inmate's system.

    More than two dozen witnesses painted a picture of Manafort, 69, as a lavish spender with little regard for the law. A political consultant in the Ukraine, Manafort stashed his money in 31 undisclosed offshore bank accounts, and skirted taxes on that income by wiring it directly to vendors to snap up real estate, bespoke suits, cars and antique rugs, the witnesses said. It is unclear whether Manafort's lawyers will call any witnesses, and legal experts say it is highly unlikely that Manafort himself will take the stand.

The second largest U.S. automaker based in Dearborn, Michigan, about 10 miles from Detroit, announced the project in June, but had not previously disclosed costs until a community meeting on Tuesday.
