'Radical vegans' strike fear into French butchersWhen the stone slabs crashed into her butcher’s shop window last week, Elisabeth Cure became the latest victim of “radical vegans” who are trying to force a change in eating habits in traditionally meat-loving France. The attack in a quiet town of Saint-Arnoult-en-Yvelines, 50 kilometres (30 miles) southwest of Paris, took place at 3:00 am, startling Cure as she slept above the store. As in other similar incidents around France over the last year, her tormentors left a tell-tale tag scrawled on the shopfront: “End the Repression”.

Fear and fanfare as Hong Kong launches China rail link

Fear and fanfare as Hong Kong launches China rail linkA new high-speed rail link between Hong Kong and mainland China will launch Sunday, a multi-billion dollar project that critics say gives away part of the city’s territory to an increasingly assertive Beijing. Chinese security will be stationed in semi-autonomous Hong Kong for the first time at the harbourfront West Kowloon rail terminus, as part of a new “special port area” that is subject to mainland law. Passengers will cross through immigration and customs checkpoints into the mainland-controlled portion of the station, which includes the platforms and the trains, even though West Kowloon is miles from the border further north.

Palestinians in Lebanon fear aid cuts will slash school access

Palestinians in Lebanon fear aid cuts will slash school accessIt’s back to school for Palestinian refugees in Lebanon, but funding cuts to the UN agency supporting them means students may only be in class until the end of month. Palestinian flags hang from the ceiling and most of the walls are covered in doodles and Arabic graffiti: “Neymar,” in tribute to the popular Brazilian footballer, “You are the darling of my heart,” and “Palestine”. Across the region, more than half a million Palestinian students may lose access to their education after the United States said it would stop backing the United Nations agency for Palestinian refugees (UNRWA).
