GLOBAL News - Death toll from factory collapse in Bangladesh passes 1,100, May 11, 2013


"SAVAR, Bangladesh – Police say the death toll from the collapse of a garment factory building in Bangladesh has soared past 1,100 as recovery operations continue. Doctors say a seamstress who was rescued 17 days after the eight-story building collapsed is recovering in a hospital, but is exhausted, panicked and dehydrated. Her discovery in the rubble Friday brought a boost to the rescue workers. By Saturday, they had resumed their grim task and the death toll reached 1,115 in the world’s worst garment industry disaster. “We will not leave the operation until the last dead body and living person is found,” said Maj. Gen. Chowdhury Hasan Suhrawardy, the head of the local military units in charge of rescue operations. The disaster has raised alarm about the often deadly working conditions in Bangladesh’s $20 billion garment industry, which provides clothing for major retailers around the globe."

Pakistanis go to polls despite increased terror attacks, May 11, 2013

 "Sharif, who heads the main opposition party the Pakistan Muslim League-N, is considered the frontrunner in the election and hopes to become prime minister for the third time. His party, which appeals to a pro-business base and is strongest in central Punjab province, is considered the main rival to the Pakistan People's Party to form the next government. Sharif was ousted as prime minister in a bloodless coup in 1999 by then-army chief general Pervez Musharraf and was sent into exile the following year. He returned to Pakistan in 2007 to lead his party in the 2008 elections, which was won by the PPP."Alexander Language Schools, Franchise Alexander Language Schools info@als-alexander.org or interalex1@yahoo.com Products and Services

Pakistan Elections- Whats going on?, May 11, 2013


"Saturday, 11th of May, 2013 is the day on which the future of Pakistan will be decided. The fate of the entire nation hangs in the balance in what is called by some as the most ‘critical’ general elections in the history of Pakistan. And it seems that it is going to be a three horse Race in elections this time around with the Pakistan Tehrik-e-insaaf challenging the usual forerunners for the government, PPP and PML-N. It also seems that this election is not just a race between three parties but also three every different ideologies as all three of these parties have very different agendas, or at least that is what they project."

 "Twin car bombs killed around 40 people and wounded many more in a Turkish town near the Syrian border today and Turkey said it suspected Syrian involvement. The bombing increased fears that Syria’s civil war was dragging in neighbouring states despite renewed diplomatic moves towards ending fighting in which more than 70,000 people have been killed. The bombs ripped into crowded streets in the early afternoon in Reyhanli, scattering cars and concrete blocks in the town in Turkey’s southern Hatay province, home to thousands of Syrian refugees. President Bashar al-Assad’[s administration was the “usual suspect” in the attacks, Turkish deputy prime minister Bulent Arinc said."
