José Grinda, who has spearheaded investigations into Spanish organized crime, said that bureau officials in recent months requested and were provided transcripts of wiretapped conversations between Torshin and Alexander Romanov, a convicted Russian money launderer.
It’s been a week since the mass shooting at Santa Fe High School in Texas, and the National Rifle Association has had time to make sense of why, exactly, this happened. Not once did the gun rights group raise concerns over the shooter’s easy access to firearms ― the 17-year-old student just used his dad’s guns ― or acknowledge that school shootings are now happening with such frequency in America that kids are developing post-traumatic stress disorder. The Texas shooting was the 16th school shooting this year.

Prosecutors say the children were punched, kicked, strangled, shot with a BB gun and subjected to waterboarding by their father, while their mother did nothing to stop it.

Pakistan’s lower house has voted for landmark reform that would end draconian colonial era laws making the country’s restive tribal areas subject to collective punishment and beyond the protection of courts. The national assembly voted to bring the semi-autonomous border areas at the centre of the war on Islamist terrorism into the mainstream political fold by incorporating them into a neighbouring province. The move would usher in widespread political reform and see the writ of Pakistan’s courts extend into areas currently ruled by all powerful political agents in a throwback to the British Raj.
