Turkey boosts troops to cross Syria border 'shortly' – BBC News



Correction: The video incorrectly introduces Mr. Ibrahim Kalin as President Erdogan’s special Advisor, Mr. Kalin is the Turkish Presidential Spokesman.

Turkey has boosted its forces on the Syrian border ahead of a long-threatened incursion that could target Kurdish-led forces allied to the US.

Troops would cross into Syria “shortly”, a presidential aide said.

Turkey wants to create a “safe zone” cleared of a Kurdish militia that will also house some of Turkey’s 3.6 million Syrian refugees.

Donald Trump has withdrawn US troops in the area in a controversial decision widely condemned at home and abroad.

He again defended his move on Tuesday, saying the Kurds had not been abandoned, calling them “special”.

Delhi riots: 'My brother died after police beating’ – BBC News



Naeem says his brother Faizan died after he was beaten by police during religious rioting in Delhi last week. Video of the incident has gone viral.

More than 40 people died in three days of violence, which largely targeted Muslims – although both Hindus and Muslims were among the dead.

More than 200 others were injured in the violence, which first broke out between supporters and opponents of a controversial citizenship law that critics say discriminates against Muslims.

Delhi police have not responded to a BBC request for comment on Faizan’s death. They have faced criticism for failing to stop the rioters and, according to some reports, standing by as Muslim homes and mosques were attacked.
