According to media reports, a girl was assaulted and beaten up by several youths for rejecting a love proposal in Bangladesh.

In Dhaka’s Demra area, the girl was chased and attacked by youths in the afternoon when she left home to go and teach a student. Girl’s brother alleged a guy named Max Babu for assaulting her sister because she denied having a relationship with him. He claimed that three others also supported Babu in the act.

Police have arrested two suspects appearing to be involved in the crime.

Leaders of a small town in Texas are abandoning a proposal that would have essentially banned abortions in their community.

Mineral Wells Mayor Christopher Perricone says he proposed making his town a “sanctuary city for the unborn” after the town of Waskom became the first in Texas to do so . But at a meeting Tuesday in Mineral Wells, about 50 miles (80 kilometers) west of Dallas, city leaders voted 5-2 to take no action at the recommendation of the city’s legal staff.

The Star-Telegram reports that earlier Tuesday, the American Civil Liberties Union of Texas sent a letter to Mineral Wells council members warning that its proposal was unconstitutional.

There are currently no abortion clinics in either Waskom or Mineral Wells, so the measures are largely symbolic. (VOA)
