Taliban reject rape, murder claims of freed Canadian hostage
The Taliban on Sunday rejected claims by freed Canadian hostage Joshua Boyle that his kidnappers had killed his child and raped his wife during the family's captivity, saying the woman had a "natural miscarriage". Boyle and his American wife Caitlan Coleman were seized by the Taliban while hiking in Afghanistan in 2012, and then turned over to the group's affiliated militant Haqqani network in Pakistan. After landing in Toronto on Friday Boyle accused his captors of killing his baby daughter and raping his wife -- accusations which the Taliban said were "fake".

Ruins of Jerusalem hall shed light on Roman-era gatherings
A small, half-built and roofed amphitheatre from 2nd-century Jerusalem has been unearthed during excavations below Judaism's Western Wall, the first such Roman-era find in the city, Israeli archaeologists said on Monday. The 200-seat carved stone structure was found underneath a passageway leading to the raised esplanade where an ancient Jewish temple stood until it was razed by the Romans as they put down a rebellion in 70 AD. Unlike larger, open-air Roman auditoriums, the amphitheatre was likely meant to be an odeon, for musical performances, or a city council meeting hall known as a bouleuterion, the Israel Antiquites Authority said.

Maltese journalist who led Panama Papers investigation killed in car bomb
Malta?s prime minister has appealed for national unity following the murder of a campaigning journalist who had accused his government of corruption. Daphne Caruana Galizia, 53, achieved fame and notoriety for investigative reporting laced with scathing commentary about allegedly corrupt officials and businessmen. She was killed on Monday when a powerful bomb blew up her car. Forensic experts on the scene of the explosion which killed investigative journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia in Bidnija, Malta Credit: Darrin Zammit Lupi/Reuters Police said the bomb went off while she was driving near the village of Bidnija in northern Malta on Monday afternoon. Joseph Muscat, the Maltese Prime Minister, denounced her murder as a "barbaric attack on press freedom". "I will not rest until I see justice done in this case. Our country deserves justice," he said in a televised statement. Caruna Galizia?s blog, Running Commentary, was one the most widely read websites on Malta and led the investigation of corruption allegations stemming from revelations in the so-called Panama Papers leak. This is a spiteful attack on a citizen and freedom of expression. I will not rest until justice is done. The country deserves justice -JM? Joseph Muscat (@JosephMuscat_JM) 16 October 2017 It was famed for a relentless pursuit of cases of apparent corruption and incendiary, sometimes highly personal, comments that saw her embroiled in frequent legal battles. Earlier this year Politico magazine listed her as one of the 28 men and women ?making and shaking Europe? for her unrelenting crusade against what she saw as Malta?s culture of ?cronyism? and opaque government.

Both men denied wrong doing. Earlier this year Caruna Galizia claimed documents from a small Malta-based bank showed that Mr Muscat?s wife was the beneficial owner of a company in Panama, and that large sums of money had been moved between the company and bank accounts in Azerbaijan. The couple denied the accusation. Mr Muscat called - and won - early elections in June as a vote of confidence to counter Caruana Galizia's allegations of corruption. In her last blog post, published just hours before she died, she bemoaned the lack of progress in prosecuting alleged corruption cases. ?There are crooks everywhere you look now. The situation is desperate,? she wrote in the last line.
