Refugees and migrants are facing increasing dangers, according to a new report from Amnesty International.
The human rights organisation says the millions who have fled war or discrimination are being denied their legal entitlements.
President of Amnesty International France, Geneviève Garrigos says too many countries are violating human rights in the name of immigration control
“The international community has to be more responsible. We have the right to ask ourselves where does sovereignty lie – with the government or the people?”
Over the last year Amnesty says it has documented violations of the right of freedom of speech, cases of torture and ill treatment and says the death penalty is still applied in 21 countries.
The Amnesty International report notes that in 2012 the situation in Syria worsened, with the international community failing to stop the killing.

Iceland votes to rewrite its constitution 22/10/2012 01:33 CET
The newly-elected government of Iceland has promised to hold a referendum on EU membership.
Talks began nearly three years ago but have now been called off.
Fish and fish products make up 70 percent of the country’s exports and fishing rights are the most contentious issue in negotiations.
The prime minister says no date has been set yet for the referendum.
But a report will be presented to parliament on the status of accession talks and the current situation in the EU as this has changed since Iceland originally applied.
Iceland asked to join the EU in 2009, shortly after it had been through one of the worst financial crises in Europe.
The country’s banking system collapsed but export strength means Iceland has made a good recovery since then.
Opinion polls suggest the majority of the population are now against joining, fearing their fishing rights may be eroded.

Following reports that a Chechen man Ibragim Todashev, suspected in a 2011 triple murder in Massachusetts alongside the elder Tsarnaev and questioned about the Boston bombings previously, was shot by an FBI agent during interrogation in Orlando, Florida, RT had a phone conversation with the suspect’s father.The elder Todashev described his son as “a very calm” man, who wouldn’t become aggressive for no reason.“Never in his life would he attack anyone unprovoked,” Abdulbaki Todashev stressed.Abdulbaki, who lives in Grozny, Chechnya, said he was not contacted by anyone from the US, and his only sources about Ibragim’s fate were neighbors citing media agencies.Having heard the reports that Ibragim was questioned by a group of people, including several policemen, Abdulbaki also said he does not believe he would rush to engage in a one-sided fight.He explained that his 27-year-old son studied in the Russian city of Saratov, and later in Grozny, but decided to give up his education and move to the US after going on a student internship there.Ibragim decided to leave for Florida because he “liked America,” Abdulbaki explained, adding he never got to know what occupation, if any, his son had in the US, other than practicing sports.Abdulbaki said they were not acquainted with the Tsarnaev family at home in Chechnya. Ibragim knew Tamerlan Tsarnaev only because they went to the same gym when he stayed in Boston, he added.Ibragim “couldn’t take part” in the Boston Marathon bombings as he was undergoing a surgical operation on his tendons in Florida days before the bombings and “had to learn how to walk again,” the father said.Todashev’s friend Kushen Taramov said he and Ibragim had been interrogated about the bombings earlier this week.But reports said that on Wednesday the investigators were questioning Todashev over his alleged role in an unsolved 2011 triple homicide in Waltham, Massachusetts, which the bombing suspects Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev have been implicated in, and that he was ready to sign a confession.Todashev allegedly took out a knife and attacked the FBI agent questioning him, but was shot to death.Taramov said Ibragim was going to fly back home to Chechnya, but the FBI insisted that he postpone his trip for “one last” interview. Abdulbaki also knew that his son was flying to Grozny on May 24. … Read More

The FBI says one of its agents has shot and killed a man, who turned violent while being questioned about the Boston Marathon bombings.

The 15 April bombings left three people dead and 264 injured.
Two brothers identified as suspects were also ethnic Chechens. Tamerlan Tsamaev, 26, died in a gunfight with police.
His brother Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19, was found hiding in a boat in Watertown, Massachusetts four days after the bombings. He was charged with crimes that could carry the death penalty if he is convicted.

The shooting transpired just after midnight in an apartment complex after a special agent was reportedly attacked after encountering the suspect. The FBI has not released the name of the suspect, though friends identified the man who was shot and killed as Ibragim Todashev, 27.Kushen Taramov, a friend of the suspect, said he and Todashev were interviewed by FBI agents for nearly three hours on Tuesday in connection with the Boston Marathon bombings.“(The FBI) took me and my friend, the suspect that got killed. They were talking to us, both of us, right? And they said they need him for a little more, for a couple more hours, and I left, and they told me they’re going to bring him back. They never brought him back,” WESH Orlando cites Taramov as saying.Taramov said after he concluded the interview, he came back to the apartments to discover that there had been a shooting.The FBI has not confirmed any link between Todashev and the Boston bombings, but Taramov told WKMG Local that the suspect had known Tamerlan Tsarnaev, who died from injuries sustained in a shootout with police days after the Boston marathon bombing. … Read More
