Hundreds of former Afghan forces have disappeared or were killed by Taliban – Human Rights Watch

More than 100 former Afghan security forces have been killed by the Taliban or have disappeared since the militants seized control, according to a new report by Human Rights Watch.

Prince Andrew Finally Served Court Papers but his Lawyer says the papers weren’t properly Served as they Plan to Boycott Court Hearing

Prince Andrew has finally been served legal papers over a rape and sexual assault case.

Sexual Harassment Has Drastically Reduced In Nollywood – Ruth Kadiri Declares

Ruth Kadiri Ezerika, a top Nigerian actress, has declared that sexual harassment is a phenomenon common among the up and coming actors in Nollywood. According to the mother of one, 80 percent of sexual harassments in the industry take place among people struggling to find their feet. “I don’t think there’s so much sexual harassment anymore. I’m saying this because I’ve grown to a point where nobody can say nonsense to me. But I have my ears to the ground, I don’t have a lot of people coming to me saying this person requested sex for a role, and also because the industry is now female-dominated. These are the reasons I think that sexual harassment has been reduced. I can’t say it has been eradicated because one or two persons will always fall victim and find themselves in th...
