DAY one of the Jayde Kendall murder trial has wrapped up after the jury heard evidence from the 16-year-old’s father and brother.

Bruce Morrissey described his daughter as a quiet girl who was “determined to do her studies”.

“… She was very conscientious. She would always, always dedicate herself to her studies,” he said.

He said the teenager worked at McDonald’s since 2014 and was paying him every week “without fail” after he helped her buy a new car.

But he said she suffered from anxiety in 2013, which involved some self harm.

“She had cut herself a couple of times. I asked her about it and she did show me they were just like, scratches,” he said.

Mr Morrissey told how he sent Jayde two text messages while he waited outside McDonald’s for her to finish her shift. But she never made it to work that day.

Her younger brother, Brandon Morrissey, told a police officer in a recorded interview played to the jury that she had no reason to run away.

“She was like really happy with her family and that,” he said.

The trial continues tomorrow.

3PM: THREE women will give evidence that murder accused Brenden Bennetts strangled them during rough sex, a Supreme Court jury has been told.

Crown prosecutor Vicki Loury QC has finished her opening address to the jury in the trial of Bennetts, who is accused of killing 16-year-old Jayde Kendall two years ago.

Ms Loury revealed towards the end of her address that three women would give evidence about rough sex with Bennetts.

She said the women would talk about occasions “where he was having sex with them… where he put his hands around their throats and squeezed, strangled.”

Ms Loury has called her first witness in the case, which is Jayde’s father, Bruce Morrissey.

EARLIER: Jayde Kendall’s cause of death is a mystery, but the last person to see the Gatton schoolgirl alive has admitted he killed her.

Brenden Bennetts, 21, has pleaded guilty in the Supreme Court in Brisbane to manslaughter in relation to the death of Jayde on August 14, 2015.

But the prosecution has not accepted his plea and this morning opened its case for murder, a charge to which Bennetts has pleaded not guilty.

Crown prosecutor Vicki Loury QC told the jury 16-year-old Jayde’s day began like any other.

Her father took her to school in the morning, via McDonald’s to drop her uniform off ahead of a shift that afternoon.

“But sadly she would not make her shift at McDonald’s and she would never make it home, she died that day,” Ms Loury said.

“And she died at the hands of Brenden Bennetts.

“(He) drove her to an area south of Gatton… killed her by some unknown means and dropped her dead body in agricultural land.”

Jayde was reported missing when her father, Bruce Morrissey, went to pick her up from McDonald’s about 9pm that night and was told she never clocked on.

Thirteen days later, her body was found on a property at Upper Tenthill covered in grass.

She was still in her Lockyer District High School uniform.

“… Her body was too decomposed for the pathologist who performed the post-mortem on her to determine her cause of death,” Ms Loury said.

It is alleged Bennetts picked Jayde up from school in his red Toyota Corolla on August 14 after they exchanged a series of messages – including 48 pictures on Snapchat – since the day before.

Ms Loury said in a message on the day Jayde went missing, she indicated she was “nervous”.

“All those messages had been deleted from his (Bennetts’) phone, but the computer analyst was able to retrieve them,” she said.

The Snapchat pictures can’t be recovered due to the nature of the app, Ms Lourey said.

The court was told there was CCTV footage of Bennetts using Jayde’s ATM card to withdraw $70.

Data from Google Maps also places him in the area where her body was found, Ms Lourey said.

Ms Loury’s opening address to the jury will continue this afternoon.

The trial is expected to run for two to three weeks.

The Australia state’s highest court has dismissed former stripper Robyn Lindholm’s attempt to reduce her prison term, with judges saying her 25-year sentence was “merciful” given what she had done.

Lindholm pleaded guilty to murder after enlisting her lover Torsten Trabert and another man, John Ryan, to kill Hawthorn gym owner Wayne Amey on December 10, 2013.

This was one day before Lindholm and Mr Amey were due in court to address a dispute they had over a farm they owned in Bittern.

The trio last week appealed their prison terms, arguing they were “manifestly excessive”.

Lindholm is serving 25 years, Trabert 28 years and Ryan 31 years in prison for Mr Amey’s murder.

Court of Appeal Justices Mark Weinberg, Simon Whelan and Phillip Priest unanimously dismissed Lindholm’s right to challenge her sentence and refused Ryan and Torbert’s appeals.

ooo

The judges said in a joint decision that Lindholm’s sentence was comparable with other similar cases where people were motivated to kill because someone had taken legal action against them.

“It is difficult to overstate Lindholm’s moral culpability for this crime. She pleaded guilty but the [sentencing] judge found that she was not remorseful…” they said.

John Ryan killer image www.crimefiles.net

“In our view, the sentence imposed upon her was a merciful one in the circumstances.”

The judges said: “This was a truly terrible crime. Lindholm had tried to have Mr Amey killed for two years, including trying to persuade others to kill him for her.

“Trabert and Ryan callously, ruthlessly and violently carried out her wishes.”

Lindholm had continued to arrange for Mr Amey to be murdered even after she was given a community corrections order for breaking into his apartment.

The judges said the sentencing judge had given her prior criminal history “markedly favourable” treatment.

Lindholm’s lawyer, Scott Johns, had argued that her sentence was “unmistakably outside the range” available, and that the sentencing judge had not given enough weight to her guilty plea.

The judges dismissed Trabert and Ryan’s respective appeals, saying that while Lindholm “might well be seen as having greater moral culpability than them”, she had pleaded guilty, while they had maintained their innocence.

The two men were also “the ones who actually carried out the killing”.

They said there was not enough of a difference between their prison terms and Lindholm’s to warrant intervention.

Trabert and Ryan both argued that their sentences should be lowered because they had less responsibility for the murder than Lindholm.

Trabert’s lawyer had claimed his client’s motivation to kill was sex.

Ryan’s lawyer said he had entered into the arrangement at a later stage, thinking they were going to beat Mr Amey for mistreating Lindholm.

Ashraf Kamal Makary.serial-rapist image www.crimefiles.net

A serial predator who hunted and raped young Korean women travelling and working in Australia has been sentenced to 18 years and six months in jail.

Ashraf Kamal Makary, 42, was on Friday sentenced in the Brisbane District Court after a jury found him guilty of two rapes, one attempted rape and three counts of administering a stupefying drug on Wednesday.

Justice Leanne Clare was scathing in her assessment of the Egypt-born offender, describing him as a “true serial predator” from whom the community needed protection.

Justice Clare said Makary deliberately hunted the young Korean women through a language exchange website, with the intention of raping them.

“You devised a wicked plan, you set a trap and you lured the prey,” she said.

The court heard Makary emailed and texted the women – who were aged 19, 20 and 24 – in the weeks leading up to April 2011, to encourage them to meet with him.

Justice Clare said he brought his own “rape kit” to the meetings, which included wine and sleeping tablets, with the intention of turning each woman into a “rag doll”.

Defence barrister Joshua Fenton had argued his client’s offending was less serious because there was no gratuitous violence involved.

However Justice Clare said Makary’s drugging of victims was the “most serious aspect” of his offending.

“The women were are your mercy,” she said.

“They were here in Australia for opportunity and adventure.

“Instead you stole the freedom and innocence of their youth.”

The court heard Makary had no prior criminal history, however he has since been convicted of another rape that occurred while he was on bail in April 2012.

He will be sentenced for that matter next week.

Justice Clare said although he had spent four years in pre-sentence custody, she would still impose a sentence of 18 years and six months.

“You took the opportunity while on bail to rape yet another woman,” she said.

“You only stopped because you were locked up.”

Cologne attacks: ‘They touched us everywhere’

Victims of a mass indecent assault during New Year’s Eve celebrations in the German city of Cologne say they feared for their lives.

One of the victims of a mass sexual attack in the German city of Cologne has described the terrifying moment a mob of more than 30 angry men surrounded her and her friends and groped and robbed them during New Year’s Eve celebrations.

Another woman recounted how her underpants were literally torn from her body during the apparently coordinated attacks outside the main train station in Germany’s fourth-largest city around midnight on December 31.

Michelle described on German television how she was attacked during New Year’s Eve celebrations in Cologne.

Cologne police say they have now received more than 90 complaints of robbery and sexual assault, including two accounts of rape, at the hands of hundreds of men who targeted the young women in the crush of revellers.

City police chief Wolfgang Albers described the perpetrators as being of Arab or North African appearance, and called it “a completely new dimension of crime”. The attack has shocked Germany and ignited debate about the country’s refugee policy.

One of the victims, Michelle, 18, told German news channel NTV that she was with a group of 10 friends who arrived at the train station about 11pm on New Year’s Eve and noticed as many as 1000 people, almost all foreign men, gathered outside in an area adjacent to the city cathedral.

Michelle said that, as she and her friends walked towards the River Rhine to watch the fireworks, there were “suddenly 20 to 30 men who surrounded us, and more and more came”.

She said the men began to molest them, touching them on their legs, backs, torsos and buttocks, and attempted to reach under their clothes. “The good thing was that we were dressed in thick clothing,” she said.

The group of friends protested, but the men didn’t appear to understand German, Michelle said. “They were all foreigners,” she said.

Michelle said some of her friends were screaming during the assault, which she estimated lasted for five minutes. The friends eventually formed their hands in a chain and broke free, with several of the group crying.

It was only after they escaped that they realised they had also been robbed of their mobile phones, wallets, headphones and cigarettes.

“We were not beaten, have no permanent damage, but it was disgusting and not funny,” Michelle said.

Another woman, Anne, 25, told German newspaper Bild that she was waiting tables at a nightclub and went outside briefly during her break when she was attacked by a group of “Arab” men, who pulled up her dress and tore her underpants off before running away.

Another unnamed woman, aged 20, had every item of clothing torn from her body, while her friend was “abused with fingers”, Bild reported.

One victim said that, such was the chaos around the train station, she feared she could be killed or raped and “nobody would notice”, Reuters reported.

The woman said she and her friend were walking past the train station when they were surrounded by a group of men who “touched us everywhere” and “grabbed between our legs”.

“I thought to myself that if we stay here in this crowd they could kill us, they could rape us and nobody would notice. I thought we simply had to accept it. There was no one around us who helped or was in a position to help. All I wanted was to get out,” the woman said.

“I was scared that I wouldn’t leave this crowd alive. I was scared that if someone showed up with a knife I could be raped in the middle of the street.

“I have nightmares at night and I can’t sleep anymore. I am too scared to go outside on my own and of course I’m now scared to go to big cities.”

German police have identified three suspects in connection with attacks, but no arrests have been made.

Police in Hamburg are now reporting similar incidents on New Year’s Eve in the party area of St Pauli.

Police said they had received 53 complaints, more than half of them alleging sexual harassment, from victims aged 18 to 25 in Hamburg.

The victims appeared to have been targeted in a similar fashion to those in Cologne, and also described the attackers as being dark-skinned or appearing Arabic, police said.

Shortly before Robert Xie allegedly murdered five people, a young woman told her friend he had inappropriately touched her, a court has heard.

The subject came “completely out of the blue” while the two women were lying down and talking in a tent during a camping trip in the Illawara region, the NSW Supreme Court heard on Monday.

The friend gave evidence that about two years earlier she had told the woman that she had been sexually abused.

And the woman then revealed that “something similar” had happened to her.

The friend told the court: “We were just lying there. I suppose we were just talking and she asked me: ‘How come I can remain so normal.’ ”

The court heard that the woman then went on to say: “You know what happened … something similar I suppose you would say happened to me.

“I don’t want to talk about it but it was similar.”

The alleged conversation happened in April, May or June of 2009, the court heard.

Mr Xie is on trial for murdering his brother-in-law Min “Norman” Lin, Min’s wife Yun, “Lilly”, her sister Yun Bin “Irene” Lin and Lilly’s two sons Terry and Henry in their North Epping home on July 18, 2009.

The woman, who cannot be identified, has previously given evidence that Mr Xie touched her sexually before the killings and sexually abused her afterwards.

The friend gave evidence that after the conversation in the tent, the woman tried to avoid the subject and would “walk off” or “brush it off”.

“I did ask her once in a while,” the friend said.

“She would say I’m busy or she would run off, she would avoid that in general or anything to do with that topic.

“I told her I would always be here if she ever wanted to ask me questions or if she wanted to talk about it, she could talk to me.”

When the friend was questioned by police at her home after the killings, she mentioned the conversation the two had shared at the camp.

Mr Xie has pleaded not guilty to murder in relation to the killings.

The Crown has argued that his sexual interest in the young woman was one of his motives for the killings.

The hearing continues.

Protest against police … Indian villagers gather around the bodies of two teenage sisters hanging from a tree in Katra village in Uttar Pradesh state, India. Photo: AP

Lucknow, India: Facing relentless media attention and growing criticism for a series of rapes, state officials in north India fired two police officers on Friday for failing to investigate the disappearance of two teenage cousins, who were gang-raped and later found hanging from a tree.

One of the father’s of the victims told the BBC that he was ridiculed by police when he went to report his daughter and her cousin missing.

But in a country with a long history of tolerance for sexual violence, the firings also came as the state’s top official mocked journalists for asking about the attack.

“Aren’t you safe? You’re not facing any danger, are you?” Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav said in Lucknow, the state capital. “Then why are you worried? What’s it to you?”

The gang-rape, with video of the girls’ corpses hanging from a mango tree and swaying gently in a breeze, was the top story on Friday on India’s relentless 24-hour news stations.

But in just the past few days, Uttar Pradesh has also seen the mother of a rape victim brutally attacked and a 17-year-old girl gang-raped by four men.

Uttar Pradesh is India’s most populous state, with nearly 200 million people.

Official statistics say about 25,000 rapes are committed every year in India, a nation of 1.2 billion people. But activists say that number is very low, since women are often pressed by family or police to stay quiet about sexual assaults.

Indian police and politicians, who for decades had done little about sexual violence, have faced growing public anger since the December 2013 gang-rape and murder of a young woman on a moving New Delhi bus, an attack that sparked national outrage over the treatment of women.

On Friday, the state’s former chief minister lashed out at the ruling government.

“There is no law and order in the state,” said Mayawati, who uses only one name. “It is the law of the jungle.”

Hours later, the chief minister ordered that suspects in the attack be tried in special “fast track” courts, to get around India’s notoriously slow judicial system.

The girls, who were 14 and 15, were raped in the tiny village of Katra, about 300 kilometres from Lucknow.

Police say they disappeared on Tuesday night after going into fields near their home to relieve themselves, since their house has no toilet.

The father of one girl went to police that night to report them missing, but he said they refused to help.

When the bodies were discovered the next day, angry villagers silently protested the police inaction by refusing to allow the bodies to be cut down from the tree.

The villagers allowed authorities to take down the corpses after the first arrests were made on Wednesday. Police arrested two police officers and two men from the village, and were searching for three more suspects.

The girls were Dalits, from the community once known as “untouchables” in India’s ancient caste system. The fired policemen and the men accused in the attack are Yadavs, a low-caste community that dominates that part of Uttar Pradesh. The chief minister is from the same caste.

On Thursday, officials suspended two local police officers for ignoring the father’s pleas for help. They were fired on Friday.

Top state official Anil Kumar Gupta said the two policemen had been charged with criminal conspiracy for refusing to file a complaint or take any action.

Meanwhile, the chief minister’s mocking comments to reporters were not a surprise to many in India.

Last month, Yadav’s father — a former chief minister and head of the state’s ruling party — told an election rally that the party opposed a law calling for gang-rapists to be executed.

“Boys will be boys,” Mulayam Singh Yadav said. “They make mistakes.”

Kavita Krishnan, a women’s rights activist, said such comments make clear to police that rape isn’t taken seriously by officials.

She called the chief minister’s Friday comments “a trivialisation of rape.”

While sexual assaults are reported across India, there have been a string of high-profile attacks in just the past few days in Uttar Pradesh.

On Thursday, police arrested three men for brutally attacking the mother of a rape victim after she refused to withdraw her complaint.

The attack, in the town of Etawah, followed the May 11 rape of the woman’s teenage daughter. A local man was arrested after the mother filed a complaint with authorities.

Five men — including the father, a brother and a cousin of the man accused in the rape — followed the victim’s mother away from her house on Monday and beat her relentlessly, demanding she drop the accusation, said Dinesh Kumar, the town’s police superintendent.

The mother was in critical condition in a hospital, with numerous broken bones and internal injuries.

Police arrested three men on Thursday for the attack and were looking for two others.

On Wednesday, a 17-year-old woman was attacked in a field and raped by four men in southwestern Uttar Pradesh, police said. One man has been arrested.

UGANDAN COURT GIVES GIRL A TOKEN 6 HRS IN JAIL FOR KILLING HER FATHER

A Ugandan court has given a symbolic six-hour jail term to a teenage girl who killed her rapist father in a case that has drawn a wave of public sympathy.  The 18-year-old girl, who is now pregnant after repeated attacks, had confessed to killing her father with a knife and machete, Peter Mugisha, a prosecutor in the case, told AFP on Friday.  "Because she pleaded guilty and said she acted in self-defence, the judge sentenced her to six hours in jail and by close of the business day she was out of jail," he said.  According to the state-owned New Vision newspaper, the girl had "lost count" of the number of times her 58-year-old father had attacked her since she turned 13. Pleas for help to her mother and local police were ignored. Advertisement  "To add insult to an injury, she said the deceased had vowed to father more children with her as he had done with her two elder sisters," the paper said. "In total the deceased fathered five children with his daughters."  The case, which was heard earlier this week in a court in Masaka, central Uganda, has captured national attention and prompted a wave of support for the girl.  Ugandan MP and prominent lawyer Crispus Ayena Odongo said the case was an important landmark in efforts to protect women from sexual violence.  "The court did a good thing. This is the first of its kind and the case is going to make a precedent," he said, adding that he believed the state would not appeal the decision because of the public sentiment supporting the girl.  Renowned Ugandan women's rights activist and former minister in charge of ethics, Miria Matembe, nevertheless asserted that the girl should not have been jailed at all.  "This case marks a dark moment in our history," she said, calling for rapists to be castrated.  Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni, a conservative Christian, has previously spoken out in favour of imposing the death penalty for rape and incest.

DIANNA GAY WRIGHT GETS HEAVY PRISON SENTENCE FOR CRIME

A WOMAN jailed for hacking off a man’s penis after he was killed has launched an appeal against her nine-year prison sentence.

Dianna Gay Wright admitted to cutting off Noel Clark’s genitals after two male associates allegedly bashed the Maryborough man to death in 2009.

In September 2012, Wright pleaded guilty to manslaughter and interfering with a corpse, and received a jail sentence of nine years.

Yesterday, the Department of Justice and Attorney-General confirmed Wright had filed an appeal against this sentence.A spokesperson for the department said the appeal was heard in Brisbane earlier this month, and the judgment has been reserved.

Xomax - Natural Male Enhancement

When she was originally sentenced last year, the court heard Wright met Mr Clark at Maryborough’s Centrelink office in 2009 and drove him to her house with the knowledge two men were waiting to attack him.

Once inside Wright’s home, the men allegedly bashed Mr Clark, sprayed his face with a substance, tied him up and left him to die on the bathroom floor.

When one of the men checked his pulse and said “he’s dead”, they allegedly wrapped Mr Clark in a doona, placed him in the boot of their car and waited until after dark to drive the body out of Maryborough.

Wright followed in her car until the men allegedly pulled over on a section of road where she was “ordered” to cut off Mr Clark’s penis with a Stanley knife

AFGHANISTAN JUSTICE FOR ADULTRESS-PUBLICLY EXECUTED BY HUSBAND

Executed … this frame grab shows Najiba (centre) sitting at the edge of a ditch shortly before being executed after being accused of adultery with a Taliban commander. Photo: AFP/Parwan Provincial Government

There sure is nothing like a public execution to arouse the dear public. Two hundred years ago, we’d be pushing our way to the front of the gallows or the guillotine’s platform just to hear the crack of the neck being snapped or to gasp as the doomed head bounced into its basket. If providence allowed, we’d even get close enough to spit in the face of the condemned.

The king/crook/traitor is dead! Hooray!

But, now, with our supersonic laptops and co-joined online lives, we can sit in private, trembling with pre-emptive disgust, and watch as those arousing words:  “This video contains images with may distress some viewers” scroll onto our screen.

Like that genre of film called Horror that encourages us to enjoy the murder and dismemberment of various poor sods, we squint and hide behind fingers but, as our bravery grows, we drop the pretence of shock.

And, here, we see the young woman by the ditch gunned down by the furious cuckold, his grey-speckled beard suggesting there was quite the age diff between he and his 22-year-old wife.

Of course, we don’t need a gang of religious zealots in a backward craphole to tell us that old men marrying young gals always ends badly.
TheLoversTouch

Can you imagine the awkward conversations? Old guy remembers, with a beatific smile, the nineties, like before the Americans came and screwed up everything, when any Taliban could freely fire his Kalishnikov into any woman who flashed a friendly smile or was stupid enough to walk to school.

Get with the times, Mr Afghan man!

A far as deaths go, it was completely different to the way America dispatches its condemned: 20 years on death row, appeal after appeal before, finally, a fat-saturated last meal and a couple of guards trying to find a arterial highway for their killer cocktail.

After the grainy video footage was posted on every news portal online, the usual pious chorus erupted. Barbaric, brutal, un-Islamic etc.

Blah..Blah…etc

I just can’t believe anyone is shocked anymore about what happens in kooky, tribal, medieval Afghanistan. Men are bad screwed up enough about women and sex in the hip, open west as it is, let alone in the land time forgot.

Yesterday, a Sydney man was found not guilty of murder after knifing a man he found tooling his wife. Like, express disappointment at their behaviour or maybe, in the fire of fury, punch the man in the nose, but to kill someone for adultery? And then for the killer to go unpunished? Hoo! Sounds like Afghanistan!

Does anyone really believe the $17 billion allocated a couple of days ago by the world’s powers toward civilian aid and to the advancement of women’s rights in Afghanistan, will do anything except maybe line the treasure caves of various warlords?

In 2014, when we finally split the joint, it’ll be biz as usual: public executions in stadiums, the poisoning of little girls, honour killings etc.

Get used to it. And enjoy online!

“Within one hour they decided that she was guilty and sentenced her to death. They shot her in front of villagers in her village, Qol,” she said, adding that the execution took place late last month.

Following the shooting, a villager handed the video over to the provincial government and “the security forces are preparing a big operation to find the culprits”, she said.

As she sits with her back to the crowd a bearded man is seen reading verses from the Koran condemning adultery, before saying: “We cannot forgive her, God tells us to finish her. Juma Khan, her husband, has the right to kill her.”

He approaches to within a couple of metres of the woman, says “Allahu akhbar” (God is greater), aims and fires twice, missing each time. The third shot hits her in the back, she flings her arms wide and collapses.

He then fires another six shots into her body as the crowd cheers wildly, shouting “Long live Islam”, “Long live mujahideen (holy warriors)”. The gunman then fires four more shots into her body.

The government issued a statement on Sunday saying it “strongly condemns this un-Islamic and inhuman action by those professional killers and has ordered the Parwan police to find the culprits and bring them to justice”

The Afghanistan Human Rights Commission also expressed outrage. Its executive director Mohammad Musa Mahmodi said: “We condemn any killings done without proper trial. It is non-Islamic and against all human rights values.”

Hague shocked and disgusted

British Foreign Secretary William Hague said on Sunday he was “shocked and disgusted” by reports that the Taliban had executed the woman.

The British government condemned the “deplorable” action and called upon Afghanistan’s rulers to bring the perpetrators to justice.

“I am shocked and disgusted by [the] reports,” Mr Hague said. “Such deplorable actions underline the vital need for better protection of the rights of women and girls in Afghanistan.”

He explained that the British government was working with its Afghan counterparts, NGOs and international partners to improve the status of women in Afghanistan.

Clinton makes plea for women

The killing came as US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton made a powerful plea on Sunday for the rights of women in Afghanistan, using a global forum to insist that they must be part of the country’s future growth.

Mrs Clinton, who was addressing a world conference in Tokyo on Afghanistan’s future, said: “The United States believes strongly that no nation can achieve peace, stability and economic growth if half the population is not empowered.”

She said the way forward “must include fighting corruption, improving governance, strengthening the rule of law [and providing] access to economic opportunity for all Afghans, especially for women”.

“All citizens need to have the chance to benefit from and contribute to Afghanistan’s progress. The United States will continue to stand strongly by the women of Afghanistan,” she added.

But the execution video could renew concerns that Kabul is not doing enough to protect women, particularly from so-called honour killings, which were common during the Taliban regime that ruled from 1996 to 2001.

The Taliban have since waged an insurgency against the government of President Hamid Karzai, which is supported by about 130,000 NATO troops.

According to figures provided by the US State Department, out of the 8 million students enrolled in schools today, nearly 40 per cent are girls. That contrasts sharply with 2002 when there were only 900,000 children in schools, virtually none of them girls.

The US says there are now 175,000 teachers in Afghanistan, about a third of them women, thanks to $US316 million ($310 million) spent on education initiatives.

US officials said Mrs Clinton had raised the issue of women’s rights with Mr Karzai during her brief visit to Kabul on Saturday, warning that they were a litmus test for the country’s progress.

The Tokyo talks have raised pledges of $US16 billion in civilian aid for the conflict-torn nation over the next four years.

Representatives from more than 80 nations and international organisations gathering in the Japanese capital later adopted the “Tokyo Declaration”, pledging support and cash for Kabul.

AUSTRALIAN STATE OF QUEENSLAND TO INTRODUCE MANDATORY GPS TRACKING DEVICES FITTED TO WORST SEX OFFENDERS

Queensland’s worst sex offenders will start wearing GPS technology to track their movements from today.

Five offenders will be fitted with the devices on day one of a program that will more closely monitor 57 dangerous sex offenders under supervision orders.

Up until now, offenders were fitted with electronic monitoring tags that checked whether they were meeting curfews.

The new technology will allow authorities to more closely follow where an offender is, 24 hours a day.

“Progressively over the next two months or so, up until about February next year, the entire 57 will be fitted with the device,” Corrective Services Minister Neil Roberts told ABC Radio today.

“There will be a central control room where the movement of the offenders will be tracked.”

Some could wear the GPS devices for up to 20 years, depending on individual court orders, but most will be fitted for up to five or 10 years, he said.

Mr Roberts said that, while the bracelets and anklets would tell authorities where people were, they could not tell them what they were doing.

He added Queensland Corrective Services would have surveillance officers in the field as well.

Mr Roberts said different offenders were prohibited from different places, but most commonly were not allowed near schools and parks.

A further 16 sex offenders up for possible release from jails over the next 12 months could also qualify for the program.

The system, and additional surveillance staff, will cost $13.7 million over four years.
