It’s Friday folks. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

International Politics

Overall

– Several U.N. officials are worried about the lack of justice in the U.S. with recent lack of indictments against officers who killed unarmed individuals

Middle East

– The most corrupt ministries in Iraq are the “defense, municipalities [and the] oil, trade and interior,” based on an internal government report.

– The former prime minister and president of Iraq spent $750 million in two years; I wonder who supplied that money…

– Ahead of the elections in Israel, there is strong support for the right, but not much for Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu; If Netanyahu, the crazy reactionary, is not doing well, then that means someone even worse can appear

Asia and Oceania

– In China, a senior official was arrested and expelled from the state’s Communist Party, which is a part of President Xi Jinping’s efforts to eliminate corruption

– North Korea invests a lot of resources into a cyber-warfare group known as Bureau 121 to attack other countries

Africa

– After documents appeared showing Egyptian officials worked with prosecutors to ensure Hosni Mubarak would be found guilty, authorities denied that was ever the case
