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.
