Commentary
Isn't the murder of Qandeel Baloch, one of Pakistan's social media stars, as 'un-Islamic' as Zeenat Bibi's?
 
Eighty-four people were killed after a truck ploughed through crowds of people celebrating Bastille Day in the southern French city of Nice.
 
A well-known Kenyan proverb says: When elephants fight, it's the grass that suffers.
 
The bell rings at the gate of the Tijuana border post as U.S. agents return 12 Mexicans home with their belongings inside paper bags and backpacks.
 
There is growing concern that countries with territorial disputes will follow the same legal path as the Philippines government and take their cases to the arbitral tribunal that recently ruled in favor of the Manila government.
 
Having been fooled in the past about a news story that later turned out to be a hoax, I am a little leery as I begin here to comment on a report from a pair of local English newspapers last week about an important man named Xi Jinping.
 
The Philippine Left has a gift for mischievous phrase making, and last week's coinage was both obvious and effective. #Chexit, with the now-obligatory hashtag, quickly made the rounds.

By ramming his truck into a Bastille Day celebration of liberte and fraternite, the driver delivered a murderous message for France: No matter who you are or what you're doing, you are not safe anywhere. Not in a Paris cafe, not at a soccer match, and now, not even watching fireworks with your children on the seaside promenade of Nice.
