    The United States will admit no more than 30,000 refugees in the coming fiscal year, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Monday, the lowest number in decades and a steep cut from the 45,000 allowed in this year. The new number is a small fraction of one percentage point of the almost 69 million displaced people in the world today. But Pompeo said the United States remains the most generous nation when other U.S. aid to refugees is taken into account, including funds to shelter and feed refugees in camps closer to their home countries.

  • BBC Asian Network editor charged over naming Rotherham child abuse victim

    A senior BBC news executive has been charged under the Sexual Offences Act over a report that identified a Rotherham child abuse victim. Arif Ansari, head of news at the Asian Network, appeared in court earlier this week.

Last night the BBC attacked prosecutors for bringing criminal action against the editor personally, rather than the corporation itself, warning that the “worrying decision” creates “a climate of fear” for the media. Mr...
