MOSUL, Iraq — A sharp rise in the number of civilians reported killed in U.S.-led airstrikes in Iraq and Syria is spreading panic, deepening mistrust and triggering accusations that the United States and its partners may be acting with an unprecedented disregard for lives of noncombatants.
BERNARDS TOWNSHIP, N.J. — Mohammad Ali Chaudry, a retired financial officer, has lived in this prosperous town for 40 years. It is where he raised his three children and where he served as mayor, and before that, as a member of the school board. It was also where Mr. Chaudry, an observant Muslim, always wanted to pray.
An Arab member of the Israeli parliament, the Knesset, has revealed that a vote will be held next week on the bill to ban the Muslim call to prayer. Ahmed Tibi MK pledged a “parliamentary, political and judicial” fight against the proposal, Anadolu has reported.
