Bangladesh sends back Rohingya boat carrying injured
DHAKA, Aug 19 (Agencies): Bangladesh coastguards Saturday turned back a boat carrying 31 Rohingya Muslim refugees escaping renewed army activity in their neighbouring Myanmar homeland, an official said.

Imran Khan's party challenges nomination of Sharif's wife
LAHORE, Aug 19 (Agencies): Opposition Imran Khan's party on Saturday challenged in Lahore High Court the candidature of ousted Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif's wife, Kulsoom Nawaz, alleging that her nomination papers contained contradictions and that she did not appear in person to file the papers.

Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf of Khan, who has led a campaign and petitioned the Supreme Court seeking Sharif's ouster over the Panama Papers scandal, challenged the acceptance of Kulsoom's nomination papers on Thursday from Lahore's NA-120 constituency. The election is scheduled for September 17. Petitione...

China chides Japan for backing India on Doklam
BEIJING, Aug 18 (Agencies): China on Friday told Japan not to make "random" comments on the Sino-Indian border stand-off even if it wants to support New Delhi. Japan has rallied behind India over the dragging feud at Doklam, with its envoy Kenji Hiramatsu saying that the region is disputed and Tokyo understands why New Delhi got embroiled in it. "I have seen the Japanese Ambassador in India really wants to support India. I want to remind him not to randomly make comments before clarifying relevant facts," Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying said. She rebutted Hiramatsu who said that Doklam, on the Sikkim section of the India-China border, was disputed and no country should change the status quo by using force. "In the Donglang (Doklam) area, there is no territorial disp...

Pak disappointed with US move to blacklist HM, calls it 'unjustified'
ISLAMABAD, Aug 18 (Agencies): Disappointed with the United States decision to designate Hizbul Mujahideen as a foreign terrorist organisation, Pakistan called the move 'unjustified', the Pakistan Foreign Office said on Wednesday. The US on Wednesday designated the Hizbul Mujahideen as a foreign terrorist group, nearly two months after declaring its Pakistan-based chief Syed Salahuddin as a global terrorist. "Declaring organisations or groups supporting freedom struggle in Kashmir as terrorist outfits is completely unjustified," Foreign Office Spokesperson Nafees Zakaria said during his weekly press conference in Islamabad. He said the US decision did not take into account "the 70-year struggle of Kashmiris." "We are disappointed (with the US decision) in view of the fact that Kashmir ...
