US upbeat on Taliban peace, warns Afghan leaders

an hour ago  
Business / Business Standard/ General News  
The United States voiced optimism Tuesday about reaching an accord to end the war in Afghanistan as a partial truce held with the Taliban, warning rival leaders in the Kabul government not to scuttle the "enormous opportunity." The United States plans to sign an agreement with the Taliban on Saturday in Qatar if the week-long truce holds. Four days in, the number of Taliban attacks has fallen dramatically. "So far the reduction in violence is working -- imperfect, but it's working," Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told a news conference in Washington. "We're on the cusp of an enormous, enormous political opportunity," he said. The historic deal would see the US withdraw thousands of troops, winding down America's longest war which was launched after the September 11, 2001 attacks but has grown increasingly unpopular at home. The Taliban would then open negotiations with the internationally recognized government in Kabul, which the Islamist militants have refused to recognize. But the ...

Saudi Arabia launches women's football league

Business / Business Standard/ General News  
Saudi sports authorities have launched a women's football league, the latest unlikely extravaganza in the kingdom as it attempts to shrug off its ultra-conservative image. The first season of the 500,000 riyals (USD 133,000) league for women over 17 will be staged in the cities of Jeddah, Riyadh and Dammam, the government-run Saudi Sports for All Federation said on Tuesday. "The launch of the (league) bolsters women's participation in sports at the community level and will generate increased recognition for women's sports achievements," the federation said. The development marks a new leap for Saudi women, who were first allowed to enter a football stadium to watch a match in January 2018. The ultra-conservative kingdom, which has long had some of the world's tightest restrictions on women, had previously barred women from sports arenas. But the country is now seeking to boost women's participation in sports as it eases strict decades-old rules separating the sexes. De facto leader ....

Asia Bibi, the Pakistani Christian who spent eight years on death row on blasphemy charges, spoke Tuesday of trying to make a new life in a strange country and her dreams of returning home. While safe in Canada, which granted her a one-year stay after she was freed from jail, she has yet to taste true freedom. "Well, I haven't visited Canada yet. I have stayed at home, mostly... I don't go out much and basically it is because of the cold and the snow," the 48-year-old told AFP in an interview in Paris, speaking in Urdu through an English translator. Bibi was in France to promote her book "Enfin Libre!" (Finally Free!) co-written with French journalist Anne-Isabelle Tollet.
