Prison authorities deny ailing journalist Sakit Zahidov

first_img Help by sharing this information RSF calls for a fully transparent investigation after mine kills two journalists in Azerbaijan Receive email alerts Reporters Without Borders today called on the authorities to allow imprisoned journalist and writer Sakit Zahidov to receive the medical treatment he needs. When his wife, Rena Zahidova, visited him at N14 prison, 75 km from Baku, on 26 March, she found that his health had deteriorated and that he was suffering from stomach and heart pains.“Zahidov has cardiac and gastric ailments and must be examined by a doctor,” Reporters Without Borders said. “He is serving a three-year sentence and the prison administration’s repeated refusal to hospitalize him or let him see a doctor is tantamount to mistreatment.”Zahidov was charged with “possession of a large quantity of drugs for the purpose of resale” after police allegedly found 10 grammes of heroin in one of his pockets at the time of his arrest on 23 June 2006. Zahidov has always insisted the police planted the heroin. At his trial, the prosecution failed to produce any evidence, not even a positive urine test, that he took drugs. Nonetheless, he was sentenced to three years in prison on 4 October. The supreme court is to consider his appeal soon.

first_imgCoronavirusIndianaLocalNews Some Indiana hospitals feeling the effect of the pandemic baby boom By Network Indiana – February 12, 2021 0 211 (“HealthCare” by WashingtonStateHouse, creativecommons) With so many Americans at home during the pandemic, there’s been more than enough opportunity to add a new member to the family.It’s the coronavirus pandemic baby boom, and one Indiana hospital is feeling the full force of the boom.Community Hospital North has delivered more babies than any other hospital in the state, with the hospital seeing a 30-percent increase in birth over last January. The hospital expects 500 new babies in March alone. But as great as a new life is, pandemic births are beginning to show negative side effects on new Hoosier moms.Dr. Rachel Riley, an OBGYN specialist at Community Hospital North, tells WISH-TV that many new moms are seeing an increase in high blood pressure and preeclampsia.“A huge uptrend in blood pressure issues,” Dr. Riley tells WISH-TV. “I do not know if that’s specifically related to the pandemic or diet or lifestyle.”Not only do new moms have to deal with blood pressure concerns, but also the coronavirus itself. To try and combat this issue, many doctors are using a system of virtual and in-person appointments.“It has been really beneficial for patients, for those that work or those that have issues taking time out of their schedule,” Dr. Riley explains.

Report: Hoffenheim 3 Lyon 3

first_imgJoelinton scored in stoppage time as Hoffenheim left it late to grab a dramatic 3-3 draw against Champions League rivals Lyon on Tuesday.Julian Nagelsmann’s side had looked to be on their way to a second Group F defeat after Memphis Depay had coolly slotted home after 67 minutes, but substitute Joelinton had other ideas, tapping into an empty net right at the death of a pulsating game.Bertrand Traore had put the French side ahead after 26 minutes before two goals from Andrej Kramaric had Hoffenheim on course for their first ever Champions League win. Article continues below Editors’ Picks Man Utd ready to spend big on Sancho and Haaland in January Who is Marcus Thuram? Lilian’s son who is top of the Bundesliga with Borussia Monchengladbach Brazil, beware! Messi and Argentina out for revenge after Copa controversy Best player in MLS? Zlatan wasn’t even the best player in LA! Tanguy Ndombele and Depay then struck for the visitors against the run of play, but Joelinton’s dramatic late intervention secured a deserved point for his side.Kevin Vogt’s moment of madness gifted the visitors a 26th-minute lead as he made a mess of returning Oliver Baumann’s short goal-kick, allowing Traore to nip in, nudge the ball away from the advancing Hoffenheim keeper and slot into an empty net.The home side responded well to that setback, though, and were level just six minutes later when Kramaric controlled Pavel Kaderabek’s header on his chest at the back post and fired past Anthony Lopes from close range.Hoffenheim picked up where they left off after the restart, Kramaric again taking down a cross on his chest and clipping a half volley past Lopes from 10 yards for his second of the contest in the 47th minute.Despite the Bundesliga team’s dominance, Lyon pulled level after 59 minutes when Ndombele latched onto Traore’s incisive through ball and unleashed a fizzing effort from an acute angle that Baumann could only deflect into the roof of his own net.Depay then thought he had secured all three points for his side eight minutes later, steering past Baumann with his left foot after latching onto a long ball.Hoffenheim’s hopes looked to have ended when Vogt inexplicably headed wide from six yards out late on, only for Joelinton to convert Nico Schulz’s low cross in the second additional minute.GOOOAAAAALLLLL!!!!!3-3 (90+2) #TSGOL— TSG Hoffenheim EN (@achtzehn99_en) October 23, 2018 What it means: Lyon lose ground on City Manchester City’s routine win over Shakhtar Donetsk means they now top Group F, with Lyon a point back in second. Hoffenheim have given themselves a fighting chance of making the knockout stages and know that a win in the reverse fixture in France next month will pull them level with Bruno Genesio’s side on five points.Depay delivers on the big stageNetherlands international Depay has divided opinion during his career, but a first Champions League goal in three years demonstrated his importance to Lyon. His composed finish looked to have delivered a precious away win for his side until they let slip their advantage in the closing stages.Vogt of no confidenceThe Hoffenheim captain’s decision to return Baumann’s pass ended disastrously. Traore took full advantage of the panic-stricken defender’s weak effort, scoring a gift-wrapped opener for the French side.Key Opta Facts:- Hoffenheim have become the fourth German side in Champions League history to fail to win their opening three matches (D1 L2), after Hamburg in 2000-01, FC Schalke in 2001-02 and Borussia Monchengladbach in 2015-16.- Lyon are unbeaten in their last six matches in the Champions League (W2, D4), their longest such run in the competition since February 2007.- Lyon have now won just one of their last seven Champions League matches against German opposition, drawing two and losing the other four.- Bertrand Traore is just the fourth player from Burkina Faso to score a Champions League goal, after Bakary Kone, Yssouf Kone and Ousmane Sanou.- Lyon have had seven different scorers in this season’s Champions League (Maxwel Cornet, Nabil Fekir, Tanguy Ndombele, Leo Dubois, Moussa Dembele and Memphis Depay). Excluding own goals, this is more than any other side in the competition so far.What’s next?Hoffenheim return to Bundesliga action on Saturday with the visit of Stuttgart, while Lyon travel to Angers in Ligue 1 on the same day. read morelast_img read more
