Egyptian Police Failed to Defend Churches, Rights Group Says -

Egyptian Police Failed to Defend Churches, Rights Group Says -

... on Wednesday, Human Rights Watch released a video report that documented what it called “simultaneous” attacks on churches across the country on Aug. 14 — the day the Egyptian security forces violently dispersed two pro-Morsi sit-ins in Cairo, killing more than 600 people. The group criticized the security forces for failing to defend the ransacked churches, saying that the police were not present at the churches before the attacks began and failed to respond to Christians’ calls for help.


One young Christian man interviewed by Human Rights Watch in the burnt-out husk of his local church said that there was a police station 20 or 30 yards down the road, but that as a mob descended on the church, no one came to defend it.

“Not even the fire service came to put out the fire,” said the young man, Philimon Sameer. “People in the neighborhood helped us put it out.”

China: End Involuntary Rehousing, Relocation of Tibetans

The Chinese government is subjecting millions of Tibetans to a policy of mass rehousing and relocation that radically changes their way of life, and about which they have no say. 
Since 2006, under plans to “Build a New Socialist Countryside” in Tibetan areas, over two million Tibetans have been “rehoused” – through government-ordered renovation or construction of new houses – in the #Tibet_Autonomous_Region (TAR), while hundreds of thousands of nomadic herders in the eastern part of the Tibetan plateau have been relocated or settled in “New Socialist Villages.”

Human Rights Watch has documented the extensive rights violations ranging from the absence of consultation to the failure to provide adequate compensation, both of which are required under international law for evictions to be legitimate.

Égypte : Il ne faut pas renvoyer les demandeurs d’asile vers la Syrie

L’Égypte devrait permettre aux personnes qui fuient la Syrie d’accéder sans entrave à l’agence de l’ONU chargée des réfugiés afin que celle-ci puisse examiner de manière appropriée leurs demandes d’asile, et devrait également permettre aux Syriens déjà enregistrés auprès de cette agence de revenir en Égypte si elles ont dû provisoirement quitter ce pays, a déclaré Human Rights Watch aujourd’hui.
