An Iranian woman due to be put to death for killing a man she said was trying to sexually abuse her is reported to have had her execution postponed.

Officials said on Monday that Reyhaneh Jabbari, 26, had been transferred to a prison west of Tehran to be hanged. But activists claimed on Tuesday that an online campaign had persuaded the state to give her a 10-day reprieve. The human rights group Amnesty International said she was convicted after a deeply flawed investigation. Ms Jabbari was arrested in 2007 for the murder of Morteza Abdolali Sarbandi, a former employee of Iran 's Ministry of Intelligence. She was placed in solitary confinement for two months, where she reportedly did not have access to a lawyer or her family, and was sentenced to death by a criminal court in Tehran in 2009. Amnesty said that although Ms Jabbari admitted to stabbing Mr Abdolali Sarbandi once in the back, she alleged that there was someone else in the house who actually killed him. Her claim is believed to have never been properly investigated. Rise in number of global executions   Killer's reprieve stokes campaig

Karadzic takes blame for Serb crimes

Radovan Karadzic sums up his defence saying he takes "moral responsibility" for crimes committed by Bosnian Serbs but denying he ordered killings.

  Radovan Karadzic at UN Hague tribunal, 1 October

Radovan Karadzic is closing his defence saying he takes "moral responsibility" for crimes committed by Bosnian Serbs but denying he ordered killings. The wartime Bosnian Serb leader set out his case in a written brief before telling the UN tribunal there was not a shred of evidence against him. He is accused in The Hague of genocide and other crimes, with one charge relating to the Srebrenica massacre. Prosecutors have called for him to be given a life sentence if convicted. The 69-year-old political leader of the Bosnian Serbs in the 1990s was handed over to the tribunal when he was arrested in 2008 after 13 years on the run. More than 7,500 Bosniak (Bosnian Muslim) men and boys, some as young as 12, were killed by Bosnian Serbs in the Srebrenica enclave in July 1995. The massacre is considered Europe 's worst since World War Two. The Balkan conflict emerged from the breakup of the former Yugoslavia , resulting in a bitter inter-ethnic series of wars from 1991 to 1999. Self-assured - In a written brief that runs to more than 800 pages, Radovan Karadzic argues that he was not aware of the Srebrenica killings but takes responsibility for "any crimes committed by citizens and forces of Republika Srpska (Bosnian Serb republic)"   Karadzic to make final statementWatch   Karadzic trial enters final stageWatch   Karadzic: Bosnian Serb strongman   Dutch liable over Srebrenica deaths

Defiant HK protests on National Day

Thousands have joined pro-democracy protests in central Hong Kong , as they spread on China 's 65th National Day. The protesters want China to withdraw plans to vet candidates for the next Hong Kong leadership election in 2017. Hong Kong 's chief executive CY Leung urged them to back electoral reforms set out by Beijing . He was heckled by some protesters, who turned their backs when the national anthem was played. China says it will "safeguard Hong Kong 's prosperity and stability". Protesters have gathered at the main protests site in the Central business district, Causeway Bay and Mong Kok. A fourth protest site has also spread to Canton Road in Tsim Sha Tsui, a major shopping district several roads south of Mong Kok. Mr Leung has rejected campaigners' calls for him to stand down.

Afghan troops killed in Kabul attack

At least seven Afghan soldiers are killed in a suicide bomb attack targeting a bus carrying troops in the capital, Kabul .

Afghan National Army soldiers (ANA) arrive at the site of a suicide attack in Kabul October 1, 2014.

Officials said the buses were carrying soldiers and officials from the Ministry of Defence

At least seven Afghan soldiers have died and many were injured after a suicide bomber targeted a bus carrying troops in the Afghan capital Kabul . A second bus was hit by a suicide bomber elsewhere in the city, injuring two soldiers and two civilians. The Taliban said they had carried out the attacks. The blasts come a day after Afghan and US officials signed a deal letting US troops stay in Afghanistan after the end of 2014. The agreement was authorised by new Afghan president Ashraf Ghani, who was sworn in on Monday. On that same day, two bombs killed at least 15 people in Kabul and Paktia provinces. Mr Ghani's predecessor, Hamid Karzai, had refused to sign the deal because of a disagreement with the US . 'Huge explosion'  The attack on the army bus took place in western Kabul , and largely destroyed the bus.  "I was walking down the road when a huge explosion occurred," shopkeeper Sanaullah Khan told Reuters.  "Right after the blast, I saw dust and smoke rising from the area and then I escaped."

All Questions or inquiries submitted are not edited...posted as they are received. Question: Why on earth the Separatist government of  the late Rene Levesque created the language law known as Bill 101? Answer: Actually, Robert Bourassa, Quebec Premier then started the controversial language law (Bill 22) which was duplicated and made it more complicated by government of Levesque. Note that Bill 101 was declared not valid by the Supreme Court of Canada but because of the veto option given to all provinces under the unfinished Canada constitution headed by Brian Mulroney, precipitated when Pierre Trudeau, prime minister of the day brought home the BNA (British North America Act - Canadian Constitution) to Canada, Quebec was able to maintain the law (Bill 101) ...  

The day the economic dim light hits Montreal

Looking back at 40 years of French as Quebec's official language

The passage of Bill 22 in 1974 may have been in response to language tensions in St-Léonard, a predominantly Italian-immigrant neighbourhood in Montreal . However, it fanned the flames between Anglos and Francos, leading to what is arguably Quebec 's most hotly debated piece of legislation ever: Bill 101. (Radio-Canada archives)  On July 31, 1974 — exactly 40 years ago — French became the only official language in Quebec . A war of words and principles raged between anglophones and francophones at the time. Anglophones fought to preserve their rights while more and more French-speaking Quebecers lobbied for better protection of their language, particularly with regard to the francization of immigrants. That edict, introduced by Robert Bourassa and his Liberal government, was meant to remove any ambiguity about language in the province. It was known as Bill 22, the precursor to Bill 101 that came three years later. “The 1960s were a time of major changes in Quebec , like elsewhere around the world. Here, we became aware of some gaps in the protection of the French language,” said Office québécois de la langue française spokesman Jean-Pierre Le Blanc. Groundwork on bills 22 and 101 was laid during the Quiet Revolution of the 1960s. The Parti Québécois was created in 1968 amid the language turmoil; a year later, the Union Nationale government led by Jean-Jacques Bertrand adopted Bill 63, which would go on to become An Act to promote the French language in Québec. St-Léonard Conflict The flames of language debates in the province were stoked by what has come to be known as the St-Léonard Conflict, which came to a head in 1968. The conflict began when an act was passed to phase out English instruction from schools in the predominantly Italian-immigrant neighbourhood. Bill 63 was passed in 1969 as an attempt to smooth out thorny relations between Montreal ’s Italian community, the province and Quebec francophones. That law had provisions promoting French in education, including offering French courses to new immigrants. It also permitted parents to choose whether their children received English or French instruction. That law was superseded by Bill 22. FROM THE ARCHIVES | Riots in St-Léonard

What happens in a US debt default?

Bills, bills, bills: how does the US government pay its debt?

20 dollar bills and hand

By Kim Gittleson BBC business reporter, New York

What is a US debt default?  At its most basic level, a default is when a person or an entity cannot repay a debt on time. For instance, when a person can't make a payment on a mortgage or a car loan. When a country does this, it's known as a sovereign default. This is when the country cannot repay its debt, which typically takes the form of bonds. So if the US were to default, it would essentially stop paying the money it owed US Treasury bond holders. A quick refresher: the US government spends more money than it collects in taxes. So to make up the shortfall, it raises funds by asking investors to buy US Treasury bonds. Investors, such as the Chinese government and pension funds, do this because these bonds are seen as a safe place to invest money. What are the consequences of a US default? No one really knows exactly what would happen, but the likelihood is that markets around the world would plunge and global interest rates would rise. This is because if the US government could not repay the money it owed bondholders, the value of the bonds would decrease. And the yield - the return the government pays to an investor - would rise. This is because it would be perceived as a less safe investment. This would prompt interest rates around the world, which are often tied to those of US Treasuries, to spike. Furthermore, the impact on the US 's creditors could be dire. Japan , for instance, owns about $1.14 trillion of US debt - which is equivalent to 20% of its annual economic output. In the US , Goldman Sachs estimates that $175bn would immediately be withdrawn from the US economy and it could lead to a very deep recession. Top 5 foreign holders of US debt :   Mainland China $1,27 Trillion  *  Japan $1.4 Trillion  *   Caribbean banking centres: Bahamas , Bermuda , Cayman Islands and others $287 Billion  *  Oil exporters: Venezuela , Iran , Iraq , Kuwait , Oman , Qatar , Saudi Arabia and others $257 Billion  *  Brazil $256 Billion  *   SOURCE: US TREASURY     Will the Fed get back to normal?   How bad are US debt levels?   Q&A: What is the debt ceiling? 

Do you agree or you don't agree on the "The consequences of a US default"? Our editor an economist don't agree, saying it instead a clever manipulation on the protection of the dollar, instead of just printing them. Why? Go ask him at

One Square Mile of Canada

Montreal is a French island in a predominantly English-speaking country

It's known as La Main - "The Main" - and it's the lifeblood of Montreal . For the past three centuries this sweeping avenue, Boulevard St Laurent, has shaped the character of a city in the heart of French-speaking Canada . La Main was once the symbolic dividing line between the city's French and English speaking communities, with the boulevard a soft buffer attracting and absorbing waves of new immigrants. Today, it celebrates a cosmopolitan city with its array of little villages, from the Quartier Chinois, or Chinese quarter, to Little Italy and Portugal , along with strong remnants of an historic Jewish quarter.

What does it mean to be Canadian?

 With Asian trade and support for the monarchy rising, what does Canadian identity mean now?

What the Indians are trying to say, The French came as visitors and now they want the country for themselves?”  So they say "over my dead body" before Quebec becomes a republic. After all, they already killed millions of us since they arrived here. This is not a provocation but just letting them know we are still around and Quebec Nation is not going to happen as long as there are still Indians around. Please send your comments to the editor...

1. Integrity and reliability are the most important quality that a public employee especially that of a politician should maintain otherwise the institution gets corrupted. 2. Poor immigrants are the greatest investment a country like Canada should bring in for they are motivated by dreams that money immigrants already have. We brought (in) lots of those money immigrants in the 80s from Hong Kong and surrounding areas, most settled in BC, did they bring their money to Canada ? No, they fried us with our own oil and most of the locals moved to nearby towns where the cost of living is much lower than where those so called investors settled in. But, where are those people now? They are back where they came from with our passports. Would you want to know more and why? Conrad David Brillantes

Oh Canada : How I Love You

The tour was to only last one hour. While the other educator and I waited for their arrival we decided we would not visit the Canadian galleries, since they were in another pavilion at the other end of the museum. We would choose the European Art collection to save time. They arrived twenty minutes late. My group had three mothers with eight children between the ages of two months and nine years old. Two Muslim mothers dressed in hijab and long over-... Quickly it was decided, even though time was limited, that we had to go visit the Canadian galleries. We showed the paintings, sculptures and objects from the Inuit, First Nations along with the first settlers from France and England . The children were mesmerized, listening to the legends and stories of the Canadian people. The mothers asked many insightful questions. As we toured from one gallery to the next, the mother from Benin began unapologetically to nurse her son. She didn’t ask for help or lag behind. She did what came naturally and continued to be an active participant. And the two other mothers? They held the infant’s head as she went to adjust her top and looked after her other child. Mothers from different parts of the world, nurturing, protecting and caring for one another. I witnessed the actions of a community. Being an Art Educator at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts affords me the opportunity to meet and interact with many people from all walks of life. I am very fortunate to live in a country where all people have equal rights and are valued for their uniqueness.

The City of Montreal has allowed a landlord to rent out apartments in a run-down, infested building in Ahuntsic during the past few years, as he gradually brings his building up to city code. Montrealer Eric Lane has been living in what authorities call unhealthy and unsafe conditions for the past four months, even though the city flagged his apartment more than a year ago as needing major repairs and renovations. Lane shares a 3 ½ apartment with a roommate in a block of run-down buildings on Ranger Street in Ahuntsic-Cartierville.  He says he can barely afford to pay for his half the $720 a month rent. Outside his building, a heap of mattresses and garbage is piled on the ground. Inside, the paint on Lane’s bathroom ceiling is peeling off, there are tiles missing from his bathroom walls and floor. He says the bed bugs are so bad, he sleeps during the day because otherwise they cover his body at night and prick him like needles. Landlords are prohibited from allowing tenants to live in these types of conditions, according to the City of Montreal’s bylaw on housing hygiene, maintenance and safetyCBC Montreal Investigates   Bugs, vermin, mould force Ahuntsic-Cartierville tenants out   Montreal's neglected tenants: Living with bed bugs and mould   The City of Montreal 's housing bylaw requires landlords to keep their buildings safe and secure.

  France to shrink deficit by 2017

The French government says it will reduce its budget deficit to below the EU threshold of 3% of GDP by 2017, two years later than promised.

Michel Sapin

The French government has said it will reduce its budget deficit to below the EU threshold of 3% of GDP by 2017, two years later than promised.

The new forecast indicates the public deficit will fall to 4.3% next year, but to 2.8% by 2017. It was released as Finance Minister Michel Sapin prepared to present his annual budget to cabinet. Mr Sapin said growth would remain weak, projecting that the economy would only grow very slightly this year. "We have taken the decision to adapt the pace of deficit reduction to the economic situation of the country," he told a news conference. "Our economic policy is not changing, but the deficit will be reduced more slowly than planned because of economic circumstances - very weak growth and very weak inflation." The French government is hoping to boost growth by cutting taxes, although this will have to be financed by further spending reductions.  France set to miss deficit target   The eurozone's grim economic reality Also read additional business news:   Asian stocks retreat on HK protests   Asian stocks suffer their fourth consecutive day of losses as political protests in Hong Kong show no signs of abating.   Why is Hong Kong protesting?   Banks shut branches over HK protests   Protesters defiant amid HK stand-off   Eurozone woes hit UK manufacturing   The UK manufacturing sector grew at its slowest pace for 17 months in September as a result of the strong pound and weakness in the eurozone, a survey indicates.   UK second quarter growth revised up   UK jobless rate falls to 2008 low

Viewpoint - Three Myths about Competition in the Canadian Wireless Sector

There are several myths going around regarding the state of competition in the Canadian wireless sector. According to critics, the lack of competition compared to other industrialized countries means that Canadians are among those who pay the most for their services services, moreover, that are of poor quality. The MEI recently delved into this subject in some detail.

Where do fairy tales come from?

Everyone knows them – but how do they come to be? And why are they similar all over the world? In an excerpt from her new book, academic and writer Marina Warner investigates.

Red Riding Hood

Everyone knows them – but how do they come to be? And why are they similar all over the world? In an excerpt from her new book, academic and writer Marina Warner investigates.

Imagine the history of fairy tales as a map: unfurl this imaginary terrain in your mind’s eye, and you will first see two prominent landmarks, Charles Perrault’s Tales of Olden Times (1697) and a little nearer in the foreground, the Grimm Brothers’ Children’s and Household Tales (1812–57). These collections dominate their surroundings so imposingly that they make it hard to pick out other features near or far. Gradually, however, as your eyes adjust to the dazzle, several more features of the scene begin to grow in definition and give you better bearings: along a whole web of routes from points further east, The Tales of the Thousand and One Nights form deep aquifers of story running through the entire expanse, and emerging here and there in waterfalls and powerful rivers spreading through wide floodplains. Harbours and market-places and pilgrimage sites –  Venice , Naples , Genoa , Sicily , in Italy alone – begin to emerge as significant centres of talkative storytelling populations. To the north, Hans Christian Andersen’s glowing Danish homeland is emitting powerful signals from regions stretching to the Arctic Circle . And when your eyes track his large force field, you begin to discover beacons blazing in the darkness, lit by the work of Walter Scott in Scotland , Alexander Afanasyev in Russia , and other omnivores of their countries’ stories. The circumpolar regions, as well as the steppes and forests of Russia and Central Asia , are also rich in fairy tale ore.  (Snap Stills/Rex Features)  By Marina Warner

Vanessa Redgrave was recently at the Toronto Film Festival promoting the film Foxcatcher

Actress Vanessa Redgrave is to star in a BBC adaptation of period drama The Go-Between. The 77-year-old actress will play an older version of the character Marian in the story made famous in a film starring Julie Christie and Alan Bates. Her father Michael Redgrave appeared in the movie, which was released in 1971, as an older Leo Colston. Jim Broadbent, who had a minor role in the big screen version, has been cast in the BBC One drama as Leo. The Go-Between will be screened next year as part of a season of new adaptations of literary classics from the 20th Century. It was a novel written in 1953 by LP Hartley and chronicles an Edwardian teenager becoming embroiled as a go-between in the secret relationship between Marian and a local farmer named Ted Burgess. Adrian Hodges, who has written the screenplay for the new TV drama, said it was "thrilling" that Redgrave and Broadbent have such a "strong connection with [director] Joseph Losey's well-loved film version from the 1970s".  BBC scraps Radio 4 Extra kids show   DJ Travis sentence to be reviewed

Prime Your Readers Before the UN Climate Summit and Climate March

Special to The Montreal Tribune - For people who want to understand the climate crisis behind National Climate Week and why thousands of people will be rallying and marching in New York and around the world on September 21, the answers are found in Climate Peril. This new, authoritative climate book puts all major aspects of the climate crisis into a broad national and international perspective, revealing that the gravity, imminence, and permanence of the crisis are widely misunderstood. Climate Peril: The Intelligent Reader's Guide to Understanding the Climate Crisis (Northbrae Books, 2014) by energy and climate expert Dr. John J. Berger [] has an introduction by Dr. Paul and Anne Ehrlich of Stanford University and a foreword by Dr. Ben Santer, an internationally respected climate scientist with Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. Just published to high critical acclaim [here], Climate Peril is a Scientific American recommended book and will also be excerpted in USA Today Magazine in November. The book underscores the unprecedented urgency of the climate crisis, providing detailed revelations about the grave harm climate change is now doing to human health, national and international security, our economy, natural resources, including the oceans, and biodiversity. Climate Peril demonstrates, for example, that holding global heating to 2° C is no guarantee of climate safety, contrary to the assumptions of many policymakers, and that the world is very likely to exceed this limit anyway. Readers have found that Climate Peril makes important findings of climate science easily accessible and helps them better understand the breadth of the climate threat to our economy and society. The book begins by explaining how the climate system naturally operates and then illustrates how human activity has disturbed it. Climate Peril goes on to document the broad consequences of rapid climate change, drawing attention to its impacts on nature, the economy, human health, and national security. In the process, Climate Peril highlights our proximity to irreversible climate tipping points and to ecological catastrophe. You may want to review or list this book among other resources readers can consult for a deeper understanding of climate issues. The author is available for interviews. An electronic copy of the book can be accessed here. Reviewer comments, author information, and a book announcement with publication information can be accessed here. Dr. Berger is available for interviews via Northbrae Books at 510-524-2709.

Monet and Picasso among art theft    Scientists recapture Renoir's reds

Paintings by artists including Picasso, Matisse, Monet, Gauguin and Freud have been stolen from a museum in Rotterdam . Police in the Netherlands said the works were taken from the Kunsthal Museum early on Tuesday morning. The museum is showing works from the Triton Foundation as part of its 20th anniversary celebrations. The paintings include Monet's Waterloo Bridge , Picasso's Tete d'Arlequin, Matisse's La Liseuse en Blanc et Jaune and Freud's Woman with Eyes Closed.  Monet water lilies sells for $43 million    Monet artwork bequeathed by reclusive heiress  "Madame Leon Clapisson": The visualization (right) is produced using advanced image processing software - Conservation scientists in Chicago produce a stunning visualization of how they think a Renoir painting might have looked before its colors faded. Researchers in Chicago have produced a visualization of how they think a Renoir could have looked before its colors faded. The picture of Madame Valentine Clapisson was painted by the great French Impressionist more than 130 years ago. The original's impact has been degraded and dulled by the action of light. But by using the latest analytical tools, conservators have been able to recover a sense of Renoir's rich reds."When we first brought this picture into the conservation studio for examination and removed the frame, we noticed that at the top and at the left-hand side there was a sliver of very intense colour," recalls Dr Francesca Casadio from The Art Institute of Chicago. "This tipped us off to the fact that the mood of this painting that is now pretty cool and restrained with light purples and blues was once far more vibrant," she told BBC News.
