Human rights violations during the Syrian civil war have been numerous and serious, with United Nations reports stating that the war has been "characterized by a complete lack of adherence to the norms of international law "  by the warring parties who have "caused civilians immeasurable suffering". According to various human rights organizations and the United Nations, human rights violations have been committed by both the government and the rebels,  with the "vast majority of the abuses having been committed by the Syrian government". The Assad regime has used chemical weapons chlorine gas against civilians and conducted torture and extrajudicial killings.
Deadly and disruptive as it already is, and terribly as it could yet worsen and spread, the coronavirus outbreak could also have political effects that last long after the contagion is contained. Crisis Group identifies seven points of particular concern. The COVID pandemic unquestionably presents an era-defining challenge to public health and the global economy. Its political consequences, both short- and long-term, are less well understood. The global outbreak has the potential to wreak havoc in fragile states, trigger widespread unrest and severely test international crisis management systems. Its implications are especially serious for those caught in the midst of conflict if, as seems likely, the disease disrupts humanitarian aid flows, limits peace operations and postpones or distracts conflict parties from nascent as well as ongoing efforts at diplomacy. Unscrupulous leaders may exploit the pandemic to advance their objectives in ways that exacerbate domestic or international crises — cracking down on dissent at home or escalating conflicts with rival states — on the assumption that they will get away with it while the world is otherwise occupied.

Since civil war broke out in South Sudan in December , over 50, people have been killed—possibly as many as ,, according to a recent estimate —and nearly four million people have been internally displaced or fled to neighboring countries. After almost five years of civil war in South Sudan, Kiir and Machar participated in negotiations mediated by Uganda and Sudan in June Later that month, Kiir and Machar signed the Khartoum Declaration of Agreement that included a cease-fire and a pledge to negotiate a power-sharing agreement to end the war. Despite sporadic violations over the ensuing weeks, Kiir and Machar signed a final cease-fire and power-sharing agreement in August The agreement , called the Revitalized Agreement on the Resolution of the Conflict in South Sudan, included a new power-sharing structure and reinstated Machar as vice president. In late October , Machar returned to South Sudan for a nationwide peace celebration to mark the end of the civil war.
Responding to natural disasters has traditionally been seen as a compassionate response to people in need. While compassion remains at the core of humanitarian action, relief agencies are increasingly conscious of the fact that assistance is rarely neutral and that their actions can have long-term consequences, as evidenced by the tsunamis in Asia, Hurricane Katrina in and the earthquake this year in Haiti. In particular, I argue that incorporating a human rights perspective into natural disaster response is important not only because it affirms the rights and dignity of vulnerable people, but also because it can prevent conflicts in the aftermath of disasters. Nor is it a natural disaster when municipal authorities are able to respond effectively to flooding in their community. For example, the devastating toll on Haiti of 4 hurricanes in was obviously the result of the storms themselves, but certainly exacerbated by the long-term deforestation in that country and inadequate public response. In fact, in that year, deadly hurricanes hit both Haiti and Cuba, but while people died in Haiti, only four fatalities in Cuba were reported. The evidence is clear that poverty is an important factor in understanding the effects of natural disasters.
Iran has a long history of detaining journalists, but action against them has accelerated in recent months in the aftermath of a series of anti-regime protests that rocked the country last year. In December, journalist and regime critic Roohollah Zam, who was arrested in Iraq and extradited to Tehran, was executed. Iranian law allows a sentence of up to two years in prison, 74 lashes, fines, or a combination of the above for journalists convicted of spreading fake news.

Его слова буквально обожгли Сьюзан. - Первичное! - воскликнула. И повернулась к Джаббе.

Они были вмонтированы так хитро, что никто, кроме Грега Хейла, их не заметил, и практически означали, что любой код, созданный с помощью Попрыгунчика, может быть взломан секретным паролем, известным только АНБ.

За шесть дней члены группы установили в зданиях вокруг биржи двадцать семь взрывобезопасных легкоплавких контейнеров. Одновременный подрыв этих тщательно замаскированных устройств должен был создать магнитное поле такой мощности, что вся информация на магнитных носителях - жестких дисках компьютеров, в постоянных запоминающих устройствах, в резервных файлах и даже на гибких дисках - оказалась бы стерта. Все данные, свидетельствующие о том, кто чем владел, должны были исчезнуть навсегда. Поскольку для одновременного подрыва устройств была необходима точнейшая координация действий, все эти изделия были связаны между собой телефонными линиями через Интернет. Двое суток встроенные часы устройств обменивались бесконечными потоками зашифрованной синхронизирующейся информации.
