Pakistan rejects role of 'scapegoat for U.S. failures' in Afghanistan

Pakistan rejects role of 'scapegoat for U.S. failures' in AfghanistanBy Syed Raza Hassan KARACHI, Pakistan (Reuters) - Pakistan has rejected U.S. criticism of its efforts to fight terrorism, saying it should not be made a scapegoat for the failure of the U.S. military to win the war in Afghanistan. U.S. President Donald Trump unveiled his policy for Afghanistan on Monday, stepping up the military campaign against Taliban insurgents and singling out Pakistan for harboring them. U.S. officials later warned that aid to Pakistan might be cut and Washington might downgrade nuclear-armed Pakistan's status as a major non-NATO ally, in order to pressure it to do more to help bring about an end to America's longest-running war.

'Three dead, dozens injured' as Typhoon Hato barrels through Hong Kong, Macao and China

'Three dead, dozens injured' as Typhoon Hato barrels through Hong Kong, Macao and ChinaDozens of people were injured and at least three dead after a powerful typhoon barrelled into Hong Kong and the nearby city of Macao before hitting China on Wednesday, reports said. Thousands were evacuated from their homes in southern China as Typhoon Hato - the worst storm in the region for five years - slammed into the mainland after flooding streets and uprooting trees in Hong Kong. The maximum category 10 storm had forced Hong Kong’s stock market to close and caused at least 400 flights at the city’s airport to be cancelled. A man walks out on a low-lying wharf while large waves caused by Typhoon Hato break along the waterfront in Hong Kong's Lamma Island Credit: AFP Only one service - a KLM flight from Amsterdam – landed on Wednesday morning when the storm’s force was at its height, according to Hong Kong’s South China Morning Post (SCMP) newspaper. Packing winds of up to 155 kmh (95 mph), the typhoon shattered windows on the city’s skyscrapers, flooded low-lying areas and blew over public bins across the financial hub. The No. 10 signal has only been hoisted 14 other times since 1946, or one for every 72 storms, according to the Hong Kong Observatory. The last time it went up was for Typhoon Vicente in 2012. Hato also brought large-scale power cuts to the gambling hub of Macao, where hotels were turning away customers because of power issues, the SCMP said.

The centre of the storm skirted around Hong Kong, but was close enough to be considered a direct hit under the city’s storm warning system. However, it made landfall at midday (05.00am GMT) at Zhuhai, in China’s Guangdong province, Xinhua said.

Chelsea Clinton defends Barron Trump's right to be a kid

Chelsea Clinton defends Barron Trump's right to be a kidNewsflash, world: Barron Trump is still a kid. Despite this fact, President Trump's youngest son, who turned 11 years old in March, recently came under fire from The Daily Caller, who deemed Barron's daily attire too casual. SEE ALSO: People think Trump has an imaginary friend named Jim In the article, titled, "It’s High Time Barron Trump Starts Dressing Like He’s In the White House," The Daily Caller wrote, "Barron was returning to the White House from New Jersey on Sunday and while the president and first lady traveled in their Sunday best, young Barron looked like he was hopping on Air Force One for a trip to the movie theater." The particular item of clothing being attacked was a red t-shirt with the words, "ON YOUR MARK TIGER SHARK" and an image of a shark, which Reddit users later determined is sold $25 at J.Crew. Image: j.crewIn response to the article, Chelsea Clinton, a member of a former first family herself, tweeted a call to her nearly two million followers urging the media to stop being so hard on Barron and "let him have the private childhood he deserves." It's high time the media & everyone leave Barron Trump alone & let him have the private childhood he deserves — Chelsea Clinton (@ChelseaClinton) August 21, 2017 Aside from the fact that he's a kid and should be able to live a normal childhood, also keep in mind that Trumps were returning to Washington after their two-week-long working vacation in New Jersey. Even you would want to chill in a t-shirt on a flight as you get back from vacation. Though the youngest Trump's clothing and behavior have come into question before — like that time he wore another graphic tee from J.Crew — he's certainly not the first child in the White House to receive criticism. Barack Obama's daughters, Sasha and Malia, both dealt with their fair share of scrutiny over the years. Clinton's tweet isn't the first time she's stood up for Barron. She also stood up for the youngest Trump back in January, when he received backlash for not looking extremely pumped during every single moment of his dad's inauguration. Barron Trump deserves the chance every child does-to be a kid. Standing up for every kid also means opposing @POTUS policies that hurt kids. — Chelsea Clinton (@ChelseaClinton) January 22, 2017 Clinton has a point: How about we all just let Barron be a kid? WATCH: Mark Ruffalo, Olivia Wilde, and more celebs led a powerful protest at Trump Tower
