Locked Up Warriors: New Zealand's Prison Problem | | Al Jazeera

Locked Up Warriors: New Zealand's Prison Problem | | Al Jazeera: One in two prisoners are indigenous Maori, even though they account for just 15 percent of the population.

PressTV-Turkish police arrest 16 over referendum protests: The Freedom and Solidarity Party (ODP) said police detained its Istanbul chairman, Mesut Gecgel, on Wednesday on the accusation of "agitating the public" by claiming that the win for the 'Yes' campaign was illegitimate.
