Video PlayerClose ISTANBUL, Dec. 14 (Xinhua) -- Sending troops to Libya to support the Tripoli-based government would make Turkey part of the ongoing civil war with a considerable risk of failure given the power equation largely favoring the Tobruk-based rival forces in the North African country, Turkish analysts cautioned. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said earlier this week that Ankara may send troops to Libya if the UN-recognized Libyan government were to make such a request. Erdogan's remarks came at a time when the Tobruk-based army led by Khalifa Haftar was preparing for an attack to capture Tripoli, where the UN-recognized Government of National Accord (GNA) is based.

By Shantanu Nandan Sharma It is 11 am on Thursday (December 12) and Guwahati is under curfew, imposed by the state government to curb the protest against the Citizenship Amendment Bill (CAB). A small group of protesters defy the curfew and attempt to gather at Guwahati’s Latasil playground — a venue for sporting events as well as Bihu celebrations. Police act quickly and push the crowd back. Soon, another group emerges from a bylane to join the first group. The protesters refuse to budge despite police’s appeal. The law-enforcers lathicharge. But a third group, fourth and a fifth group come from the bylanes to join the main group outside the ground. Police fire tear gas shells to disperse the crowd streaming in from the bylanes. Within half an hour, protesters’ numbers swell to around 8,000, forcing the security forces to step back. The crowd now manages to enter the Latasil ground. A helicopter and a drone are pressed into service to monitor the defiant … [Read more...] about What lies ahead for Assam which is steadfastly, and often violently, protesting the new citizenship act?
