German govt condemns pictures showing refugees abused

BERLIN (Reuters) The German government on Monday condemned suspected cases of abuse against refugees in which asylumseekers were maltreated by security guards and even forced to lie in a bed filled with vomit. Chancellor Angela Merkel's spokesman Steffen Seibert said pictures published in German media that appear to show private security guards abusing refugees were repulsive and shocking. Rights groups also criticised the apparent abuses, which evoked the violations by American guards at the Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq that emerged in 2004 #facebook #India #Business #Japan #Technology #United Kingdom #Latin America #opinion #german

Israel's Netanyahu Iran poses greater threat than Islamic State

UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) A nucleararmed Iran would pose a far greater threat to the world than Islamic State militants who have seized large swaths of Syria and Iraq, Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Monday. "Make no mistake, ISIS (Islamic State) must be defeated," Netanyahu told the United Nations General Assembly. "But to defeat ISIS and leave Iran as a threshold nuclear power is to win the battle and lose the war." "Iran's nuclear military capabilities must be fully dismantled," Netanyahu said #Japan #Syria #Technology #France #Middle East #Israel #Latin America #Mexico #opinion
