A judge in Egypt on Monday sentenced to death 683 alleged supporters of the country's ousted Islamist president, including the Muslim Brotherhood's spiritual leader, the latest in mass trials that have drawn international condemnation and stunned rights groups. Among those convicted and sentenced to death on Monday was Mohamed Badie, the Brotherhood's spiritual guide.
An astonishingly tragic year for air travel in Southeast Asia turned worse Sunday when an AirAsia plane carrying 162 people disappeared over stormy Indonesian waters, with no word on its fate despite several hours of searching by air and sea. AirAsia Flight 8501 vanished in airspace possibly thick with dense storm clouds, strong winds and lightning on its way from Surabaya, Indonesia, to Singapore. Searchers had to fight against heavy rain. The Malaysia-based carrier's loss comes on top of the still-unexplained disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 in March and the downing of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 in July over Ukraine. At the Surabaya airport, shocked family members pored over the plane's manifest, crying and embracing when they learned the news. Nearly all the passengers and crew are Indonesians, who are frequent visitors to Singapore, particularly on holidays.
The Riviera Maya, Mexico leg of Ozzfest, dubbed the Ozzfiesta, has been cancelled after organizers revealed that Ozzy Osbourne would undergo an unspecified surgery once the Black Sabbath singer's upcoming South American jaunt ends May 2nd. The Ozzfiesta was initially scheduled for May 27th at Riviera Maya's Hard Rock Hotel, but in a statement from Ozzfiesta Promoters Cool Breeze Concerts the procedure "requires at least four weeks of recovery time." The four-day festival was set to feature an acoustic set by Zakk Wylde, a Q&A session with Osbourne and his band, a Black Label Society concert, a Jim Norton standup set, a charity golf tournament and, most importantly, a headlining performance by Ozzy himself.
Months after the limited theater and digital release of Seth Rogen and James Franco's controversial 2014 comedy, The Interview, the actors are still being asked to reflect on the film's political and ethical implications. During a sit-down Thursday on The Late Show With David Letterman, Franco was adamant that the movie's plot – which finds the duo playing celebrity journalists tasked by the CIA to assassinate North Korean leader Kim Jong-un – did more good than harm. "We never felt like we were irresponsible or doing something wrong," he told the host.
Myanmar's commitment to freedom of expression after half a century of military rule is irreversible, the government said on Friday, although critics cited lawsuits, beatings and arrests of journalists as signs of it backtracking on reforms. Information Minister Ye Htut said an unfettered press was essential to the success of parliamentary elections set for later this year, despite challenges including tensions between old and new media laws and a rise in defamation cases.
Documents obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation indicate that the wife of Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders may have been able to use her clout to get away with loan fraud, nearly bankrupting the small college she was president of and collecting a sizable severance package in the process. These revelations come amid growing speculation that Sen. Sanders, a self-described socialist who has blasted the U.S. government asan oligarchy run by billionaires and railed against the golden parachutes received by top corporate executives, will contend for the Democratic presidential nomination. Jane Sanders was the president of tiny Burlington College in Burlington, Vermont for seven years, from 2004 until 2011. During her tenure, Sanders masterminded an ambitious expansion plan that would have more than doubled the size of the school. To do so, she had the college take on $10 million in debt to finance the purchase of a new, far more expansive campus. The move backfired massively, leading to Sanders’ departure from the college and the near-collapse of the institution.
