France's lack of an age of consent have complicated efforts to prosecute alleged perpetrators. The Justice Ministry said systematic sexual abuse is "intolerable", adding that "the government is determined to act quickly to implement the changes that our society expects." "An act of sexual penetration by an adult on a minor under 15 will be considered a rape," Justice Minister Eric Dupond-Moretti said Tuesday, Feb 9, on France-2 television. Perpetrat...

Myanmar military Takes Control after Detaining leader, Aung San Suu Kyi and other Key Government Figures

Myanmar's military has detained the country's leader Aung San Suu Kyi along with other leaders of her National League for Democracy (NLD) party in an apparent coup.
