The use of video taken by a drone is unusual for the Taliban. read more

Hillary Clinton's campaign has unveiled an emotional television ad featuring the parents of a slain Muslim American army captain. The new ad features Pakistani-American Khizr Khan, who Donald Trump assailed after Khan spoke at the Democratic National Convention. In the 60-second ad, which Clinton's campaign said was airing in seven battleground states, Khan retells how his son, Capt Humayun Khan, died in Iraq seeking to protect his US military unit from a suicide bomber. "Mr. Trump, would my son have a place in your America?" the father asks, tearing up as the ad fades to black. read more

Apple is investigating a report from an Australian man who claimed his iPhone 7 caught fire and destroyed his car, the company said on Friday.

Surfer Mat Jones told Channel 7 News that he had gone into water off a New South Wales beach and left his new iPhone 7, bought last week, wrapped in a pair of trousers in his car on the beach.

He said that when he returned from the water he saw smoke billowing out from the car. "As I looked into my car you could not see inside the car, like all the windows were just black." read more

A handsome "chai wala" (tea seller) in Pakistan has seen his life change overnight after a picture of him at work swept the internet.

Arshad Khan, 18, was photographed pouring tea at Islamabad's Sunday Bazaar by photographer Javeria Ali.

As Donald Trump and his supporters ramp up their allegations that the U.S. presidential election will be rigged, an arrest in Kansas last week offers some disturbing evidence that fears about post-election violence and unrest may be warranted. read more


And do you know what is common between Goldman Sachs, DuPont, CapitalOne, Pfizer, Merck, OmniCare, Sun Microsystems, Google, Intel, Verizon, eBay, AT&T, Qualcomm, Comcast, Kraft, Sara Lee, Kohl's, Chobani, Nordstrom, P&G, TJX, Honeywell, Big Lots, BJ's, Radio Shack, General Dynamics, Cigna, Eaton, Fidelity?

And yet, we are rapists, should be banned to enter, and a wall should be built to restrict the transfer of us zombies into the United States. We work tirelessly so that America can afford the luxury of their work-life balance; we work more, get paid less than our American counterparts, endure being harassed and stereotyped. The probability of picking us "randomly" for security clearance or secondary interview at the airport is 100%.

We didn't come here to be politicised, to be used and abused for your election rhetoric, to corroborate our sufferings and be labelled according to your whims.

I guess time has come for us to part ways.

And I truly believe Donald Trump can help us do that. At the same time, America will also realise how much we helped her to become what it is today and how not to vandalise the sentiments of her friends. Seeing my own son at the bare age of seven, bullied and attacked for being Muslim in America, tells me a different story. It is not the America I've left everything for, it is not the America I have studied in, it is not the America I believe in and it is not the America where I wish to raise my family.

Enough is enough; the best way to cure this is to vote for Donald Trump.
