News Reporters Without Borders (RSF) is relieved that Radio Bonesha journalist Egide Ndayisenga was released today after being held arbitrarily without a warrant for two days, but is concerned that the environment for the media in Burundi continues to be hostile.

The authorities gave no official explanation for either his arrest or his release. Egide Ndayisenga“Since when has it been a crime in Burundi to provide others with information?” RSF said. “Must we remind the authorities that Burundi’s press law guarantees journalists the right to receive and impart information, and that its constitution guarantees media freedom? This journalist’s arrest was clearly an act of intimidation designed to hamper his work.” Unfortunately, this type of incident has been far from isolated in this central African country since the authorities began gagging independent media outlets in April 2015.The public security ministry issued a press communiqué last week accusing “certain social network activists” and Esdras Ndikumana, an Agence France-Presse and Radio France Internationale correspondent who fled the country last year, of “promoting crime and violence” in Burundi.The French government reacted by expressing “deep concern” about the Burundian communiqué. Ndikumana fled abroad after being badly tortured by Burundian intelligence officials in August 2015.Most of Burundi’s independent radio stations have been closed for more than a year, while the authorities have imposed significant curbs on the editorial content of the few media outlets still operating, and harass foreign journalists in the course of their reporting. Social networks are virtually the only place where news and information about Burundi circulate freely.The official statements portraying journalists as enemies of society soon led to grave threats being voiced against Ndikumana on social networks.Last month, German public broadcaster Deutsche Welle found itself in the regime’s sights when government spokesman Willy Nyamitwe launched a personal attack on one of its reporters, Eric Topona, for daring to call him for a comment on the recruiting of young Burundians into a presidential militia called the Imbonerakure.“Just criticizing or commenting on a government measure is regarded as a suspicious act of opposition nowadays in Burundi,” RSF said. “In these circumstances, it is hard take the authorities seriously when they claim that the situation is getting back to normal for the media.”“The closely controlled reopening of some radio stations falls far short of compensating for the terrible pressure to which the Burundian and international media are still subjected. This continues to be very worrying. The authorities are quietly engineering a chronically enfeebled media landscape and a compliant form of journalism, the only kind that they seem capable of tolerating.” Burundi is ranked 156th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2016 World Press Freedom Index.

Coverage of Pakistan Super League has been suspended in India.Pulwama terror attack killed 40 CRPF jawans.India will take on Pakistan in Old Trafford on June 16 in ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. New Delhi: The Pulwama terror attack which resulted in the death of 40 CRPF jawans has impacted India and Pakistan cricket relations in a big way. Portraits of Pakistan cricket players were removed from Punjab Cricket Association and Rajasthan Cricket Association while Imran Khan’s photo is apparently on the verge of being removed from the Cricket Club of India (CCI). Speaking about the situation, Indian Premier League (IPL) chairman Rajeev Shukla has said the actions are justified. “Whatever is happening, Imran Khan’s portrait being removed or MFN status revoked is people’s outrage and the reaction is justified. I’ve always said the sport is above politics but now it will hamper sporting ties too, not until Pakistan sponsored terrorism is stopped,” Shukla told Times Now in an interview.With cricketing tensions at an all-time low, there are calls for India to boycott their game against Pakistan in the ICC Cricket World Cup which will be played in Manchester on June 16. When asked about such a move, Shukla said, “Cannot say now whether we will play Pakistan in the World Cup as it’s too far but our policy and position is very clear, we will wait for the government’s decision,” Shukla said. The Cricket Club of India (CCI) has covered the photo of Imran Khan, who is the former skipper and current Prime Minister of Pakistan while the photo of several Pakistan players has been removed from the Punjab Cricket Association and Rajasthan Cricket Association. Speaking about the incident, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has expressed ‘regret’ and said it will take up the issue with the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) in an International Cricket Council (ICC) meeting which will be later in the month.Apart from cricket associations, the coverage of the Pakistan Super League in India has also been affected. IMG Reliance has pulled out of covering the PSL games while D Sports has also suspended the coverage of the PSL games on Television in India. Apart from TV, digital platforms have also taken a stand with Cricbuzz, a popular digital platform not covering the games on their website. highlights

(AP Photo/Jim Mone)ExpandMINNEAPOLIS – Jose Briceño napped for 15 minutes on one of the tan leather couches clustered in the center of the Angels’ clubhouse inside Target Field. The rookie catcher got a haircut – shaved to the skin on either side of his head and shaggy up the middle, like a mohawk. He still had more than three hours to kill.Angels second baseman Ian Kinsler did, as he said, “a whole lot of nothing,” while pitcher Tyler Skaggs said he downed four Red Bulls.Meanwhile, Manager Mike Scioscia monitored the weather.Sign up for Home Turf and get 3 exclusive stories every SoCal sports fan must read, sent daily. Subscribe here.For a time Saturday, Scioscia said, a big green blob on a radar screen threatened to postpone the Angels’ game against the Minnesota Twins by a day. He received conflicting reports. One claimed that downtown Minneapolis would be drenched in rain until 8:30 p.m. local time. Another predicted the skies would clear in the late afternoon, which would allow the Angels to dodge the dreadful bullet of a getaway-day doubleheader. By 4 p.m., the rain stopped. The close-cropped catcher and the caffeinated pitcher could begin planning for a baseball game. Whatever they did, however they passed the time, it worked.After a four-hour delay, the Angels needed just under three hours to beat the Minnesota Twins 2-1, extending their winning streak to six games.Skaggs (5-4) allowed five hits, one run, walked one batter and struck out eight in seven innings. He lowered his ERA to 3.08 and has won both of his June starts after a winless May.Related Articles Angels offense breaks out to split doubleheader with Astros Skaggs went to high school in Santa Monica and literally wears his Southern California upbringing on his sleeve. The interlocking letters “LA” and the number 310 – the area code of the greater west side – are written in ink on his upper right arm. Rain delays are not in his blood.Yet Skaggs also spent part of the 2011 season with the Arizona Diamondbacks’ Double-A affiliate in Mobile, Ala. where, he said, “it rains almost every single day.”“I’ve had a lot of practice waiting out rain delays,” he said.Once the skies cleared, neither Skaggs nor Twins starter Kyle Gibson (1-4) got much help from their offenses. The Twins collected seven hits, the Angels six. Run support has not been kind to either pitcher this season, but the Angels did their damage with a pair of daggers.Kinsler’s home run, a laser to left field, handed Skaggs a 1-0 lead in the third inning. It was his third home run in his last three games.Pujols’ 623rd career home run took flight in the sixth inning. It landed in the first row of the first deck of seats overhanging the left-field bleachers, where it soon became property of an elated fan. The souvenir ball was the 1,951st RBI of Pujols’ career, which tied another former St. Louis Cardinals great, Stan Musial, for sixth place on the all-time list.Meanwhile, the Twins (27-34) only put one runner past third base against Skaggs. That was in the sixth inning, when singles by Eddie Rosario and Robbie Grossman put runners at first and third with one out.The next batter, Max Kepler, bats left-handed. Skaggs was intent on inducing a ground ball against a fellow lefty, got ahead 1-and-2, and succeeded when Kepler tapped a looping curve to Angels first baseman Jose Fernandez.Fernandez stepped on the bag to retire Kepler, then threw to shortstop Zack Cozart, who needed to tag Grossman to end the inning. Grossman cleverly remained in a rundown long enough for Rosario to score from third base before he was tagged out. The Twins got their only run on the unconventional inning-ending double play, cutting their deficit to 2-1.Scioscia said that Fernandez, who had scarcely played first base before he was called up from Triple-A Salt Lake on Friday, made the correct play.“First blush you might say, ‘why didn’t (Fernandez) go home with it?’ … He tagged first knowing it was probably going to cost us a run, but we got out of the inning and we still have our 2-1 lead,” Scioscia said. “That’s a heads-up play.”A one-run lead with nine outs to go is often far from safe. But these are the Twins; only six teams have scored fewer runs this season. Skaggs struck out the side in the seventh. Justin Anderson pitched around a single in the eighth. Blake Parker did the same in the ninth, locking down his seventh save in eight tries.The Angels nearly padded their lead in the eighth inning. Justin Upton was hit in the left triceps by a Trevor Hildenberger pitch, then stole second base – his fourth successful steal in four attempts this season.The next batter, Pujols, roped a single into left-center. Rosario’s throw was up the third-base line and reached catcher Bobby Wilson on one hop, but Wilson was able to reach back and tag Upton before Upton could touch home plate.Insurance runs have been an unnecessary luxury for the Angels lately. While winning seven of their past eight games, they’ve allowed more than three runs only once. The pitching, Scioscia said, is the one aspect of the streak that makes him most proud.“On the offensive side we’ve got some really clutch hits, which have helped,” Scioscia said. “If you look at what our rotation has done through this thing, the only game that was rough was the game that we beat (Kansas City) 9 to 6. … We’re getting our rotation doing what it needs to do. Go around our rotation a couple times, give us a chance to win, that way we can get on some of these streaks. They’ve been doing a really good job of it.” Angels’ Mike Trout working on his defense, thanks to Twitter The left-hander “was out at the park here at 9:30 this morning, getting ready to get into your routine and pitch,” Scioscia said. “Just the mental part of a four-hour delay, we waited every hour for updates. Then we got a definitive time. You could see him go into overdrive and get ready to pitch. He pitched a good game.”Home runs by Ian Kinsler and Albert Pujols provided the Angels’ runs. At 37-28, the Angels are now 3-1/2 games out of first place in the American League West after gaining one game on the Seattle Mariners.

TAMPA, FL – JANUARY 09: Quarterback Deshaun Watson #4 of the Clemson Tigers celebrates with the College Football Playoff National Championship Trophy after defeating the Alabama Crimson Tide 35-31 to win the 2017 College Football Playoff National Championship Game at Raymond James Stadium on January 9, 2017 in Tampa, Florida. (Photo by Kevin C. Cox/Getty Images) Twitter/PlayoffThis Monday, the Alabama Crimson Tide and the Clemson Tigers will meet in the College Football Playoff title game – capping off what’s been an incredible 2015 season. But we’re already looking ahead to 2016. We have a feeling that fans of every other team in the nation are too.Last year, we put together a list of the 13 teams that could eventually prevail and win the national championship. Three of those teams – Clemson, Alabama and Michigan State – reached the College Football Playoff. Of course, two of them are in the title game.This year, we’ve gone ahead and done the same. Unfortunately, given the tier-system in college football regarding talent, the field is never wide open. Year over year, the same programs, more or less, are capable of putting together title contenders. In some sense, college football is more predictable than many of the other popular sports in our country.Which 13 teams actually have a chance to play for it all next year? Let’s find out:The Only 13 Teams That Can Win >>>Pages: Page 1 Page 2 Page 3 Page 4 Page 5 Page 6 Page 7 Page 8 Page 9 Page 10 Page 11 Page 12 Page 13 Page 14
