Inquirer Breaking News - Thu, 06/16/2022 - 11:03
    GENEVA -- A food security crisis stoked by the Ukraine war is set to push more people to flee their homes in poorer countries, driving record levels of global displacement even higher, the head of the U.N. refugee agency (UNHCR) said.

Inquirer Breaking News - Thu, 06/16/2022 - 10:53
    NEW YORK -- Ghislaine Maxwell should spend fewer, and perhaps far fewer, than 20 years in prison for helping deceased financier Jeffrey Epstein sexually abuse teenage girls, her lawyers said on Wednesday, arguing that Epstein was the "mastermind" behind the abuse. Maxwell, 60, "cannot and should not bear all the punishment for which Epstein should have been held responsible," her lawyers wrote in a sentencing memorandum filed in Manhattan federal court. A federal jury in Manhattan convicted Maxwell last December on five criminal counts including sex trafficking for recruiting and grooming four underage girls for Epstein, her former boyfriend, to abuse betwee...

  MANILA, Philippines --- Local government units (LGUs) should be allowed to decide whether or not to enforce the use of face masks outdoors, Presidential Adviser for Entrepreneurship Joey Concepcion said.
