The Guardian reports that India's top police official said: 'If you can't prevent rape, you enjoy it.’ Truly, we don’t understand what that means. Subhajit Banerjee at the Guardian reacted with: “OH.MY.GOD.” Mark Colvin at the Australian Broadcasting Corporation News said, “Dear India, That's your problem, right there.” Affan Chowdhry from Globe and Mail explained this man is the “Equivalent of FBI chief.” Ahmed Shihab-Eldin at the Huffington Post called him a “Dipshit.”

At the New York Times, Ben Hubbard explains that Private Donors’ Funds Add Wild Card to War in Syria. Nick Fox there said, “The logic is chilling.’We cooperated with the Americans in Iraq...so why not cooperate with Al Qaeda?’” Miriam Elder at BuzzFeed said, “Donors to ‘Wage Jihad With Your Money’ get silver or gold status depending on what they send to Syria.” Sasa Petricic with the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation called it the “Inevit result of US indecisiveness over #Syria. No such thing as vacuum in#MiddleEast, priv arms $ always avail.”

Courts/BBC agree.” Olivia Solon at Wired called it a “Deeply unsatisfying conclusion.”

Channel 4 News said that their team was blocked by a mob in Sri Lanka. Jonathan Miller there tweeted the story with: “My twitter account's blocked on phone. Can only tweet when online. Here's what happened to us. Pls follow @bendepear.” David Blair at the Telegraph added, “Sri Lanka mob obstructs Channel 4 crew by unusual method of lying down in front of their train.”
