5 10 6 A zákányi horvát-magyar határszakasznál mintegy 3500 migráns lépte át ma az államhatárt. A magyar rendőrök százas csoportokban kísérték őket az ott várakozó járművekhez, majd pedig elindultak velük a regisztrációs pontok felé. A bevándorlók Afganisztánból, Irakból és Szíriából érkeztek, legtöbbjük fiatal férfi, de sok volt közöttük a néhány éves kisgyermek is. Ma megközelítőleg 5000 migráns érkezett a hegyeshalmi vasútállomásra. (Forrás: MTI).
Oct 6, 2015 Europe’s highest court struck down an international agreement that allowed companies to move digital information like people’s web search histories and social media updates between the European Union and the United States. The decision left the international operations of companies like Google and Facebook in a sort of legal limbo even as their services continued working as usual. The ruling, by the European Court of Justice, said the so-called safe harbor agreement was flawed because it allowed American government authorities to gain routine access to Europeans’ online information. The court said leaks from Snowden, the former contractor for the National Security Agency, made it clear that American intelligence agencies had almost unfettered access to the data, infringing on Europeans’ rights to privacy. Timmermans, the first vice president for the European Commission will be charged with carrying out the ruling. France and Germany, where companies like Facebook and Google have huge numbers of users and have already been subject to other privacy rulings, are among the countries that have sought more aggressive protections for their citizens’ personal data. Britain and Ireland, among others, have been supportive of Safe Harbor, and many large American tech companies have set up overseas headquarters in Ireland. The safe harbor agreement has been in place since 2000, enabling American tech companies to compile data generated by their European clients in web searches, social media posts and other online activities. Under the deal, more than 4,000 European and American companies had been expected to treat the information moved outside the European Union with the same privacy protections the data had inside the region. The United States government had lobbied aggressively in Brussels in recent months to keep the agreement in place. The United States and the European Union have worked for roughly two years on a new safe harbor agreement. In the United States, privacy is viewed as a consumer protection issue; in Europe, privacy is almost on a par with such fundamental rights as freedom of expression. The case reviewed by the European Court of Justice related to a complaint brought by Schrems, a 27-year-old Austrian graduate student, who argued that Europeans’ online data was misused when Facebook was said to have cooperated with the N.S.A.’s Prism program.

Oct 6, 2015 Boy has fingertips sliced off and women raped in public - for being Christian. He and 11 other Syrians refused to renounce their Christian faith. The extremist fighters told his father the torture would only stop if he returned to Islam. But when the family refused, the entire group was butchered in a mass beheading. According to Christian Aid Mission, the public torture and execution took place on August 28 in a village close to the isis stronghold of Aleppo, Syria. A separate group of eight Christian aid workers, including two women, were also killed for refusing to shun their faith. After they refused to renounce Christ, the women, aged 29 and 33, were raped in front of a crowd summoned to watch, and then all eight were beheaded. Thousands of Christians have been tortured and killed in Syria and Iraq by the jihadi group, aiming to wipe the religion off the map. The Christian population in Syria has fallen by almost two-thirds since the outbreak of civil war in 2011, with more than 700,000 of Syria's population of 1.1 million Christians already forced to leave. In neighbouring Iraq, their numbers have dropped from around 1.5 million ten years ago to below 200,000. (Source: Express): http://tinyurl.com/p8p5czc
