KABUL: A leaked Afghan government document that bars inclusion of an ethnic group in an anti-riot force has led to allegations of ethnic discrimination in the fragile administration and sparked deep anger in the country.

In the letter which appeared days ago on social media — allegedly written by Abdul Fattah Frogh, commander of the Afghan Public Protection Forces (APPF) of the Interior Ministry — Farogh tells officials to recruit other tribes in the new force, excluding Tajiks, the second largest ethnic group in Afghanistan.

A project in the western state of Rajasthan to improve the health of women among poor tribal communities took on this tradition by encouraging families to eat together.

THE HAGUE: A UN tribunal on Wednesday convicted former Bosnian Serb military commander Ratko Mladic of genocide and crimes against humanity for orchestrating massacres and ethnic cleansing during Bosnia's war and sentenced him to life in prison.
After the sentencing Mladic's attorney said his client would appeal the decision.
Mladic, 74, was hustled out of the court minutes before the verdict for screaming "this is all lies, you are all liars" after returning from what his son described as a blood pressure test which delayed the reading-out of the judgment.
