Girls at risk as Bangladesh mulls lowering age of marriage, says HRW

NEW DELHI (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - Millions of girls are at risk if the Bangladeshi government goes ahead with a proposal to lower the age of marriage to 16, Human Rights Watch warned on Monday.

Human Rights Watch (HRW) said Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina's government was now considering an amendment to the Child Marriage Restraint Act, which would also lower the age of marriage of men to 18 from 21 #Business #India #Bangladesh #Brazil #France #markets #Italy #Argentina #United Kingdom #Latin America #Mexico #article

Pistorius faces sentencing over girlfriend's death after divisive trial

PRETORIA (Reuters) - Disgraced South African track star Oscar Pistorius returns to court on Monday to find out whether he will serve a long stretch behind bars for the negligent killing of his model girlfriend, or walk out a free man.

A non-custodial sentence would likely spark public anger, fuelling a perception among black South Africans that, 20 years after the end of apartheid, wealthy whites can still secure preferential justice #Business #facebook #United States #Brazil #Middle East #markets #South Africa #United Kingdom #Latin America #Mexico #opinion #article
