    Turpin family: California 'torture parents' plead not guilty

    The parents of 13 children have appeared in court accused of abusing and starving them and chaining them to their beds in their squalid California home. David Allen Turpin, 57, and his wife Louise Anna Turpin, 49, their hands and legs shackled, appeared calm as they pleaded not guilty on Thursday to multiple charges of abuse, torture and imprisonment. Prosecutors say the alleged abuse by the Turpins started many years ago when the family lived in Texas, and intensified over time as they relocated to Murrieta, California, in 2010, before moving to their current family home in 2014.

    Sky sources: Carillion collapsed with £5bn of financial liabilities

    Carillion, the bankrupt construction group, had financial liabilities worth about £5bn when it went bust this week, according to the most extreme calculation of its obligations to tens of thousands of pension scheme members. Sky News can reveal that private analysis of Carillion's pension deficit on a Section 75 - or full buyout - basis has concluded that it was as high as £2.6bn, a far higher sum than the £587m accounting deficit referred to by its former chief executive in a High Court witness statement. The £2.6bn figure relates to the cost to Carillion of paying an insurance company to guarantee all of its pension liabilities, and is significant because it is likely to be the sum claimed on behalf of the pension schemes as part of the liquidation process, according to insiders.

    Turkey shells Syria's Afrin region, minister says operation has begun

    Turkish artillery fired into Syria's Afrin region on Friday in what Ankara said was the start of a military campaign against the Kurdish-controlled area. The cross-border bombardment took place after days of threats from Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan to crush the Syrian Kurdish YPG militia in Afrin in response to growing Kurdish strength across a wide stretch of north Syria. Direct military action against territory held by Kurdish militia would open a new front in Syria's civil war and would see Ankara confronting Kurds allied to the United States at a time when Turkey's relations with Washington are reaching breaking point.

    Ministers should consider implementing universal basic income, says free market think-tank

    Ministers should consider implementing the radical policy of a universal basic income, according to a new report by a free market think-tank. The Adam Smith Institute (ASI) claims there is rising evidence for basic income and calls on governments across the globe to experiment with the idea. The concept involves radically overhauling the welfare state and ditching means-tested benefits in favour of an unconditional flat-rate of payments to all citizens.

    United Nations Employees Claim They Faced Sexual Assault, Harassment Amid Culture of Silence: Report

    United Nations employees alleging sexual harassment and assault have encountered a culture of silence in which claims have been stalled by bureaucracy and victims have been threatened with having their jobs terminated, according to a report from The Guardian Thursday. The investigation, which looked at offices across the world, interviewed current and former U.N. employees, with dozens revealing the full extent of the difficulty in reporting sexual misconduct within the world’s humanitarian base. Of those interviewed, 15 employees told The Guardian about alleged offenses that took place ranging from verbal harassment to rape in the last five years.

    Government drops prosecution of 129 inauguration defendants

    The U.S. government is abandoning its prosecution of more than 120 defendants charged with crimes over their involvement in violent protests on the day of Donald Trump's inauguration one year ago. A statement Thursday evening from the U.S. attorney's office said the government will continue to pursue felony charges against 59 defendants, while moving to dismiss the cases against the remaining 129 defendants. The government's original plan suffered a setback in December when a Washington jury acquitted the first batch of six defendants on all charges.

    China births drop 3.5 percent in 2017 - China Daily

    Births in mainland China fell by 3.5 percent to 17.23 million last year, the China Daily reported on Friday, citing figures from the country's statistics bureau. The fall in the number of births in 2017 came despite a 2016 move to relax China's so-called "one-child policy" and allow all couples to have a second child. The loosening of the restrictions came amid concerns about the country's rapidly aging population.
