Only a small percentage of sexual assaults result in criminal charges, and even fewer with convictions. As a result, many victims don’t even bother filing complaints. And powerful men, from the president on down, face few lasting consequences.

|Remains found in crocodile believed to be missing Queensland pensioner|
|Mon, 16 Oct 2017 23:23:23 -0400|
Human remains have been found inside a crocodile that is believed to have killed a pensioner in Queensland last week. The 4.3-metre estuarine crocodile was captured on Monday night at the Mowbray River near Craiglie in northeast Australia, close to where Anne Cameron went missing from an aged care facility near Port Douglas seven days ago. The 79-year-old is thought to have become disorientated on a walk and wandered into dense bushland. Police later found clothing, a walking stick with her name and human remains beside a crocodile-infested creek near Four Mile Beach, about a mile from the aged care facility. Wildlife officers set traps to try to catch the creature that is believed to have killed Ms Cameron. The captured animal was examined in Cairns on Tuesday, with human remains found inside.

Isabella Eggins, a granddaughter of Ms Cameron, said last week the family feared she had died in tragic circumstances. “It is my deep regret to inform you that following an extensive search and the discovery of certain items as a result of that search, we have the firm belief that my mother Anne Cameron has passed away in tragic circumstances,” Ms Eggins said on Facebook. Saltwater crocodiles, which can grow up to seven metres long and weigh more than a tonne, are a common feature of the vast continent's tropical north and kill an average of two people a year. A series of crocodile attacks in the region in recent years has prompted calls for the state government to order a cull – a move that has so far been rejected. Ms Cameron's family also said they did not want to see any crocs culled. "The crocodiles... are not responsible for being crocodiles, and doing what crocodiles do," her son Craig Eggins said, according to the Cairns Post.
|Israel uncovers Roman structure at foot of Jerusalem's Western Wall|
|Mon, 16 Oct 2017 11:16:00 -0400|
Israeli archaeologists in Jerusalem's Old City on Monday unveiled a newly unearthed section of the Western Wall and the first Roman public structure ever discovered in the city, they said. Archaeologist Joe Uziel said he and his colleagues knew the wall section was there and had expected to find a Roman street at its base. The Israel Antiquities Authority (IAA), which conducted the two-year dig, said that historical sources mentioned such structures but in 150 years of modern archaeological research in the city none had been found.

Like the F-35, the latest F-22s have radar (Synthetic Aperture Radar) and data-links (F-22 has LINK 16), radar warning receivers and targeting technologies. Also, Air Force officials have told Scout Warrior that, by 2019, the service will begin upgrading F-22 functionality for the AIM-120D and AIM-9X Air-to-Air missiles as well as enhanced Air-to-Surface target location capabilities. The F-22 currently carries the AIM-9X Block 1 and the current upgrade will enable carriage of AIM-9X Block 2.

|Madrid set to impose direct rule on Catalonia as independence deadline passes|
|Mon, 16 Oct 2017 06:11:13 -0400|
The Spanish government has warned Catalan leader Carles Puigdemont he faces his final chance to relinquish independence within three days or it would trigger Article 155, the so-called 'nuclear option' which would override Catalonia's autonomy. Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy had set a deadline of 10am local time yesterday for Mr Puigdemont to clarify whether or not the autonomous region had made a unilateral declaration of independence last week. The Catalan president responded with a four-page letter that did not directly answer the question but instead stressed a mandate for independence and called for urgent dialogue. The Spanish government had made clear that anything less than a “No” would set in motion Article 155, a never-used constitutional tool allowing it to effectively suspend autonomous powers and rule directly from Madrid.

Credit: Lavandeira jr/EFE That is now set to be applied on Friday, if Mr Puigdemont does not reverse his position during a further three-day grace period. The Spanish deputy prime minister, Maria Soraya Saenz de Santamaria, said the government interpreted his response as a confirmation that declaration had indeed been declared. Demanding Mr Puigdemont retract this by Thursday at 10am, she insisted it was "in his hands to avoid the next steps". Mr Puigdemont, who had been under heavy pressure from independence hardliners to confirm an abrupt split from Spain, had called for an urgent meeting with Mr Rajoy in his letter. He said the banned independence referendum had returned a mandate for an independent state but insisted the regional government’s priority was a negotiated solution, eyeing a two-month period for dialogue.

If he did not do so, he “will be the only one responsible for the application of the constitution,” he said. Alfonso Dastis, the Spanish foreign minister, said “the most radical influences had prevailed” in Mr Puigdemont’s decision. But the Catalan president’s letter did not go far enough to satisfy the CUP, the hard Left partner that is crucial to the Catalan government’s parliamentary majority, which is now pushing for a clear affirmation of independence on Thursday. “The CUP would have sent a very different letter,” said parliamentarian Mireia Boya. Further adding to tensions yesterday, the Catalan police chief and the leaders of two major pro-independence groups appeared in court in Madrid to face allegations of sedition. The Spanish attorney general asked the judge to remand Major Josep Lluis Trapero in custody, with judicial sources quoted by La Vanguardia citing fears he could continue to give orders to the Catalan force to subvert Madrid's clampdown.

The same conditions were imposed on another Catalan police official.

|Wildfire toll hits 45 in Portugal-Spain but rain brings respite|

Overnight rain and calmer winds on Tuesday helped firefighters tame a spate of deadly wildfires that broke out over the weekend, devouring homes and killing 41 people in Portugal and another four in northern Spain. Portugal's civil protection agency said the 15 biggest fires, which had raged through the centre and the north of the country, had been brought under control, but the death toll rose. "We've gone from 37 dead to 41," civil protection agency spokeswoman Patricia Gaspar told AFP.
