Tillerson: Russia should consider carefully its support to Assad regime

US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said on Thursday (6 April) that Russia had failed to deliver on a commitment to secure chemical weapons in Syria. He accused Syrian President Bashar al-Assad of perpetuating a chemical weapons attack that killed more than 70 civilians in Syria. He urged Russia to reconsider its support for the regime.

Uber passenger hurls racist abuse and rape claims at driver

The full eight-minute video captured the shocking exchange during a fare in New York city with driver Bakany Blacky recording the female passenger in the back of his car before uploading it on LiveLeak.Unleashing a rant where she says she will “start screaming out the window that you’re raping me”, she then falsely accuses the driver of punching her in the face. She then decides to unfurl racist abuse, telling the driver to “get the f**k out of my country” and that “Donald Trump is going to send you and your family back”. It is believed the argument started over the driver not being able to provide the passenger with a smartphone charger – as it can be heard in the clip him saying “if I don’t have a charger, politely ask me. I’ll politely tell you…but you start disrespecting me...” It swiftly ignited into the passenger hitting the back of the seats, saying she will spit in his face, punch herself in her own face and claim the driver was responsible.
