    SYRIA

    2013, the bloodiest year for Syria with more than 73 thousand deaths



    Most of those killed were military or armed rebels , but there are also tens of thousands of civilians among the victims. International community accused of being concerned about use of chemical weapons, but not about massacres.

    Beirut ( AsiaNews / Agencies) - The year was the bloodiest fin the Syrian civil war since ongoing since March 2011. Yesterday, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights , based in Britain, issued its data stating that in the past year , from 1 January 2013 to 31 December 2013 , there were more than 73 455 dead, including 22 436 civilians.

    The Observatory has also updated the figures on deaths throughout the war period : 130 thousand , mostly soldiers and rebel fighters on both sides. The group criticizes the international community because "it is not in taking serious action to stop the massacres that have been committed and continue to be committed ."

    The international community - continues the group - focused on chemical weapons and on their dismantling , but "forgot all the massacres that have killed thousands of Syrians ."

    Beijing's tricks and violence to stop Chinese youth from reaching WYD

    Vincenzo Faccioli Pintozzi

    The government yesterday blocked a group of 50 young pilgrims who had already boarded a plane bound for Krakow. Interrogated for hours by immigration, they were "admonished" and sent home with orders not to contact anyone abroad. Meanwhile, "young Chinese Catholics" hang around central World Youth Day locations in groups of five or six, with the task of spying on fellow countrymen. They work for cultural institutes or Chinese companies in Poland.

    Fr Samir: Islamic terror in France and Germany a crisis of integration, but above all of politics

    Samir Khalil Samir

    The kidnapping and murder of a priest near Rouen (France) and the various attacks in Würzburg, Munich, Ansbach (Germany) were carried out by young people, who were indoctrinated with ease. Germany was a model for the integration of refugees. But radical Islam cannot be assimilated. It is supported by Saudi Arabia and Qatar. There is no other road other than integration. But we must tell the truth: the Koran contains elements of war and violence. Western politicians suffer from ignorance and a loss of all moral sentiment.
