The students were all traveling with valid F-1 student visas issued by the US state department. Before packing their bags for the US last month, the Iranian students had completed expensive and time-consuming university applications and visa processing. At the time, the students received no email or alert, and the visa statuses on the site remained “issued”. Photograph: Courtesy one of the students barred from travelingOther students said certain moments have crystallized in their memories. “It is really hard for me to forget that moment.”While the students continue to wait for answers, fall quarter classes have started without them.

The court heard that if it had exploded it would have caused a devastating firebomb and killed or injured at least 60 people in a nearby bar. Madani and Gilligmann both acknowledged roles in the failed Notre Dame car attack, but both accused each other of taking the lead and pushing them to reluctantly take part. The court heard that Madani had liked the attention of the women who fell in love with her fake male personas online. The court heard that Madani spent “80% of her time in her room, under the duvet, the blinds closed … on her computer or phone. Later, in prison awaiting trial, Gilligmann was said to have continued to struggle to accept that Abou Soulayman had never existed.

But according to a Human Rights Watch report, this never happened. Turkey’s proxy forces are not alone in committing alleged war crimes in Syria. Bashar al-Assad, Syria’s president, has frequently been accused of war crimes through illegal use of chemical weapons. Donald Trump and other western leaders have also faced war crimes controversies, for example over airstrikes in Raqqa and Mosul during coalition operations against Islamic State. The international criminal court, which has lead responsibility for investigating war crimes, lacks authority and is not officially recognised by the US, Russia, Turkey or Syria.

The Queensland senior constable used a police database to obtain the personal details of a domestic abuse victim and then joked when he sent her address to her violent former husband. On Monday, more than five years after sending that message, Neil Glen Punchard pleaded guilty to nine counts of computer hacking. In 2016, police declined to bring criminal charges against Punchard. Punchard might face renewed disciplinary action from the Queensland Police Service because of the criminal conviction. Julie said after the hearing she was grateful Punchard received a conviction and jail term.

How the government’s claims on Newstart, drought support, religious discrimination and other issues stack upThe prime minister's office accidentally sent out its talking points. We fact checked themWhen parliament resumes in Canberra, the prime minister’s office sends MPs and senators a set of talking points so they can’t be caught out by curly questions on any topic. We’ve fact-checked the document to see just how many untruths or misleading claims are in the brief. At March 2019, 459,007 of the 686,328 people on Newstart had been on the payment for more than 12 months. While doctors were consulted under previous procedures, there was no guarantee people would be transferred in line with their recommendations.

Hungary’s strongman prime minister has lost control of the city of Budapest in one of the most serious setbacks for his party since it came to power nine years ago. A grand opposition alliance won the capital and several other large cities as Viktor Orban’s rivals overcame their squabbles and fielded joint candidates in yesterday’s local elections. It was the first time that Mr Orban, 56, had faced a united front at the ballot box after nearly a decade of political dominance. Since 2010 his ultra-conservative party, Fidesz, has rewritten electoral rules and tamed much of the country’s media, acquiring a stranglehold over the institutions of government. It won 51 per cent of the vote at the European elections in May.

In 2016 I made it to the final six and have been chasing the dream ever since,” she said.

As orders decline, companies in Scotland are shrinking their workforces DANIEL LEAL-OLIVAS GETTY IMAGESScottish businesses are cutting jobs at the fastest rate in more than three years, according to new research. The latest Royal Bank of Scotland’s purchasing managers’ index suggests that the decline in new orders and activity levels during September was linked with economic and political uncertainty. The PMI is a long-running monthly survey monitoring conditions in the manufacturing and services sectors. The headline business activity index, which combines manufacturing and services, was at exactly 50 last month, compared with 50.3 in August. A marginal expansion in services in September was not enough to offset a sharp fall in manufacturing…
In a waiting room in a private hospital two grand figures in South African politics are now elderly outpatients. One is the former president Jacob Zuma, the other is Ronnie Kasrils, the ANC official and veteran Communist, who once ran the country’s intelligence service. In Gail Louw’s play they occupy opposite sides of the moral compass. Zuma is the amiable populist, who believes his earlier years of hardship and imprisonment have earned him the right to help himself to the country’s riches. Kasrils may be willing to joke about the good-old days and play a friendly game of chess, yet ultimately he sees his friend…
Glasgow City and Hibernian will contest the final of the SSE Scottish Women’s Cup for the sixth time in nine years at Tynecastle on November 24 after they beat Rangers and Motherwell respectively in yesterday’s semi-finals. Both games were played at Forthbank Stadium, and City had to come from behind to beat Rangers 4-1 in the first before Hibs ran up the same scoreline against Motherwell in the second. Hibs will be bidding for a fourth successive Scottish Cup win — they beat City in the 2016 and 2017 finals — while City, on course for a 13th consecutive league title, were victorious in the previous five finals. The pair have won eight each of the 16 competitions since 2002. City’s win came at a…
Nico Yennaris might have been preparing for another Championship match this week. Instead, less than a year after leaving Brentford, he is getting used to his new status as an international trailblazer and the poster boy for football in China. Things have gone dizzyingly fast for the former Arsenal trainee since he left west London for Beijing Sinobo Guoan in January for about £5 million. The 26-year-old made history as the first naturalised player to appear for China when he made his debut against the Philippines in June and his team could be crowned the Chinese Super League champions. When he arrived at a Portuguese airport he could not find the taxi driver to take him to…
Now is the time for England to be bold, not nervous. Now is the time for Gareth Southgate to focus on constructing a platform for Raheem Sterling to express himself, not obsessing about building barricades with an extra defender at the back. The adrenaline rush and tactical masterclass against Spain a year ago tomorrow must define English thinking. Southgate may not appreciate the cards analogy, after James Maddison’s ill-timed casino cameo, but he has to play his pacey aces. England enjoy such a plethora of talented “wide raiders”, Marcus Rashford, Jadon Sancho and Callum Hudson-Odoi (presently with…
The septuagenarians Al Pacino and Robert De Niro, centre, were able to appear as younger men through innovative and extremely costly “de-ageing” technology THE IRISHMAN★★★★☆Well, what did you expect? And with Al Pacino, working with Scorsese for the first time, thrown in for good measure? The surprise, however, is not just that The Irishman is good, but that Scorsese has found something new, and invigorating, to do with such familiar material. The story, culled from the memoir I Heard You Paint Houses, charts the career of the mafia hitman Frank “The Irishman” Sheeran. He’s played by De Niro in a life-spanning performance that begins in Sheeran’s dotage, in a nursing…
