India's Dalveer Bhandari re-elected to International Court of Justice after Britain bows to UN majority
UNITED NATIONS, Nov 21 (Agencies): Judge Dalveer Bhandari was re-elected to the International Court of Justice (ICJ) on Monday as the General Assembly rallied behind him in a show of strength that made Britain bow to the majority and withdraw its candidate Christopher Greenwood. "I am grateful to all the nations who have supported me," Bhandari told IANS in the Assembly chamber after the election. "It was a big election as you know." The withdrawal of its candidate by Britain, which had the backing of its fellow permanent members, was a setback for the Security Council that had been locked in a test of wills with the Assembly. A candidate has to win a majority in both the chambers. Bhandari won majorities in the Assembly in the first 11 rounds of voting over two meetings, while the Cou...

Gerry Adams to step down in end of an era for Irish nationalism
DUBLIN, Nov 19(Agencies): Sinn Fein`s Gerry Adams, a pivotal figure in the political life of Ireland for almost 50 years, said on Saturday he will step down as party leader and complete a generational shift in the former political wing of the Irish Republican Army (IRA). Reviled by many as the face of the IRA during its campaign against British rule in Northern Ireland, Adams reinvented himself as a peacemaker in the troubled region and then as a populist opposition parliamentarian in the Irish Republic. Adams said he would be replaced as party president, a position he has held since 1983, at a party conference next year. He would also not stand for reelection to the Irish parliament. "Republicanism has never been stronger... But leadership means knowing when it is time for change. Tha...

Trump a hideous criminal, deserves death penalty: North Korean media
SEOUL, Nov 15 (Agencies): North Korea's state media today slammed Donald Trump for insulting leader Kim Jong-Un, saying the US president deserved the death penalty and calling him a coward for cancelling a visit to the inter-Korean border. An editorial in the ruling party newspaper Rodong Sinmun focused its anger on Trump's visit to South Korea last week, during which he denounced the North's "cruel dictatorship" in a speech to legislators in Seoul. The visit was part of a marathon five-nation Asia tour by the US president aimed largely at galvanising regional opposition to the North's nuclear weapons ambitions. "The worst crime for which he can never be pardoned is that he dared [to] malignantly hurt the dignity of the supreme leadership," the editorial said. "He should know that he...

China may suffer Soviet-style collapse because of corruption
Chinese govt body in unusual message
BEIJING, Nov 15 (Agencies): China must step up its battle against corruption in order to safeguard against a Soviet-style collapse, the country`s second most senior graft-buster said in an editorial on Wednesday. Yang Xiaodu, the deputy secretary of the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection, who was promoted to the ruling Communist Party`s 25-strong Politburo last month, said failure would risk the "red country changing colour". In unusually direct and strongly worded criticism of previous administrations, Yang said "in a previous period", corruption had been allowed to fester to such an extent that the party`s leadership had weakened, with supervision soft, and ideology apathetic. "It had developed to the point where if not rectified, the country could change colour," Yang wro...
