Torture, interrogation at US-linked Yemen prison

Thu, 22 Jun 2017 16:42:09 GMT

Hundreds of men swept up in the hunt for al-Qaida militants have disappeared into a secret network of prisons in southern Yemen where abuse is routine and torture extreme — including the "grill," in which the victim is tied to a spit like a roast and spun in a circle of fire, an Associated Press investigation has found.

HODEIDAH, YEMEN - AUGUST 2010: Scenes from Hodeidah Central Prison, Hodeidah, Yemen, August 12, 2010. This prison houses a majority of African illegal immigrants who have made their way by perilous land and boat journeys to Yemen from Nigeria, Ethiopia, Eritrea and Somalia. They are in Yemen in order to make their way to Saudi Arabia. Most attempt to walk to Saudi from their beach landing in Hodeidah and cross the Yemen/Saudi Border illegally in order to secure manual labour employment.

Tell delivery drivers, don't park in bike lanes

Thu, 22 Jun 2017 12:17:30 GMT

Grace from Denver writes, what is driving you crazy? I recently had an incident at The Clock Tower on Arapahoe St at the 16th Street Mall. Can you please ask/tell whomever is rezoning bike lanes with parking/loading zones that 1) sidewalks are not loading zones, and 2) there is a giant merge arrow there, and I hope it was for a reason? Exactly where is a person supposed to merge with some right-of-way?
