US prisoner swap angers domestic critics

The dramatic deal to free soldier Bowe Bergdahl in exchange for Taliban prisoners ignited criticism after the insurgents' leader declared a "big victory," but also raised hopes for peace as the US prepares to leave Afghanistan.

Washington has defended the swap as critical to saving Bergdahl's life, as his health had deteriorated sharply after five years spent as the only US soldier held captive by the Taliban since the war began in 2001.

High court orders California to release thousands of prisoners....

On Tuesday, the US Supreme Court rejected an appeal to halt the early release of thousands of California prison inmates by the end of the year.
The Supreme Court did not comment on its decision, which supports a previous ruling by a lower court forcing California to free about 9,600 additional inmates by the end of the year. In 2011, federal judges ruled that the state must improve prison health conditions. Reducing the number of inmates was included as part of the process.
Since then, California has cut its prison population by about 25,000 inmates. State Gov. Jerry Brown claims that releasing even more could jeopardize public safety. It remains to be seen whether or not counties in California are equipped to handle the influx of inmates scheduled to occur.

Ενημέρωση για την υγεία του Ούγκο Τσάβες ζητά η αντιπολίτευση

Ο κύριος συνασπισμός της αντιπολίτευσης της Βενεζουέλας ζήτησε σήμερα από την κυβέρνηση να πει "την αλήθεια" σχετικά με την κατάσταση της υγείας του προέδρου Ούγκο Τσάβες, ο οποίος εισήχθη σε νοσοκομείο της Κούβας πριν από τρεις εβδομάδες για θεραπεία του καρκίνου από τον οποίο πάσχει.
Το αίτημα αυτό υποβάλλεται σε μια στιγμή που κυκλοφορούν φήμες ακόμη και για το ότι ο Τσάβες έχει πέσει σε κώμα, καθώς η πολυήμερη θεραπεία του και η απουσία επίσημης ενημέρωσης εντείνουν την σχετική ανησυχία για την κατάσταση της υγείας του.
