Tens of thousands of North Korean women 'sold into China sex trade and systemically raped' ‘You Have to Pay With Your Body’: The Hidden Nightmare of Sexual Violence on the Border. But less understood is that the violence that befalls migrant women happens not just during the perilous journey through Mexico: Much of it happens after women reach the supposed safety of the United States.

Religion and refugees are deeply entwined in the US. Robert Bowers lashed out at what he believed to be a Jewish plot to bring more refugees and asylum seekers to the U.S. before allegedly murdering 11 people at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh.
Bowers’s claim that HIAS, a prominent Jewish humanitarian organization, was bringing migrants from Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala northward to commit violence was false. But it is true that many religious communities in the U.S., including American Jews, have long supported refugees and asylum-seeking migrants who arrive in the U.S. World's Most Dangerous Cities: Port Moresby (PNG) BBC Stories. I was an Isis sex slave. I tell my story because it is the best weapon I have. The slave market opened at night.
We could hear the commotion downstairs where militants were registering and organising, and when the first man entered the room, all the girls started screaming. From the classroom to the frontline – schools must be careful what they teach kids about the army. By Jonathan Parry *reposted from Dinner time at Harrogate’s army foundation college.
Harrogate Army Foundation College Facebook When you think of child soldiers, it might conjure up images of young children far away, taken from their homes and forced to take part in war and fighting, often held against their will. 'All I did was be black.' It's not just Smith College. America's racism has no lone wolf. Worlds-most-dangerous-countries-colombia-yemen-el-salvador-pakistan-nigeria-a7934416. Central American kids come to the US fleeing record-high youth murder rates at home. Gang violence and expanding criminal networks have made El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala – an area of Central America known as the “Northern Triangle” – some of the world’s most dangerous countries.
El Salvador’s homicide rate in 2016 – 109 murders per 100,000 people – was more than 25 times that of the United States. It was almost triple New York city’s homicide rate during New York’s bloodiest years in the 1970s and 1980s. Murders have generally declined across the Northern Triangle in recent years. Yet thousands of Central Americans each month make a risky trek across Mexico to seek asylum in the U.S from what is still pervasive violence in their home countries.

On 14 July last year, the Russian prime minister, Dmitry Medvedev, and several members of his cabinet convened in an office building on the outskirts of Moscow. On to the stage stepped a boyish-looking psychologist, Michal Kosinski, who had been flown from the city centre by helicopter to share his research. “There was Lavrov, in the first row,” he recalls several months later, referring to Russia’s foreign minister. “You know, a guy who starts wars and takes over countries.” Women in sub-Saharan Africa forced into sex to pay hospital bills, study says. Hospitals are detaining hundreds of thousands of people against their will every year – many of them mothers and their newborn babies – simply because they are too poor to pay their medical bills, a study has found.
The practice, which is widespread across parts of sub-Saharan Africa and Asia, sees patients chained to drainpipes, starved and abused, and forced to perform sexual acts in exchange for cash to pay off their bills, according to the paper published by Chatham House this week. Campaigners are calling on the global health community to take immediate action against medical detentions ahead of a high-level forum in Tokyo on universal healthcare, which begins on Tuesday. The UN, World Health Organization and World Bank will meet world leaders to discuss ways to improve healthcare for all by 2030.
Thousands of children are imprisoned across Africa. They need justice. The legendary editor of the Guardian newspaper CP Scott famously declared in 1921 that “Comment is free, but facts are sacred”.
Unfortunately, when it comes to hard evidence on how many children are locked up in prisons, detention centres, migrant and refugee camps, rehabilitation units or other institutions across the world, the facts are more scarce than sacred. There is no single source of accurate data for these figures and estimates vary widely between 15,000 and 28,000 in Africa alone, but common sense dictates that the numbers are likely to be worse than even the highest approximations.
The UN Global Study on Children Deprived of Liberty – due to be presented to the general assembly this September – aims to address this data gap.
