A British Gurkha soldier veteran who lost both legs in Afghanistan has achieved mountaineering history after reaching the top of Mount Everest. Hari Budha Magar, who lives in Canterbury, Kent, reached the summit of the world’s tallest mountain this past Friday, having started the climb on 17 April – exactly 13 years since he lost his legs after an IED explosion. With this achievement, he became the first double above-the-knee amputee to summit the world’s tallest mountain. He is no stranger to making history, having been the first double above-knee amputee to climb several mountains including Mera Peak and Chulu Far East.
Two teenagers have been sentenced to life in prison for the murder of a 16-year-old Afghan refugee. Rishmeet Singh was stabbed 15 times after being chased through a park in Southall, west London, in November 2021. Two years before his murder, Rishmeet had escaped to the UK with his mother and grandmother after his father was killed by the Taliban. Shortly after his father’s murder, the fundamentalist group had tried to kidnap Rishmeet, and the family fled from the eastern Afghan city of Jalalabad. Report by Jonesia.

The first of the three Russian hypersonic missile scientists to be arrested on suspicion of treason will go on trial next week in a case which apparently involves accusations of betraying secrets to foreign adversaries. The criminal case against Anatoly Maslov, 76, will open in Saint Petersburg’s city court on June 1. The St. Petersburg City Court also ruled on May 24 that Maslov's detention would be extended until at least November 10. Soon after his arrest, authorities had flown him to Moscow and put him in pre-trial detention in Lefortovo prison…a former KGB interrogation site where Wall Street Journal reporter Evan Gershkovich is also being held. The details of the case are classified, but some local media reports cited sources close to scientific circles as saying that the three scholars are suspected of handing information related to their research to China.
