SUN SUNI KHABAR MAY 24TH, 2016
India was racing against China to sign an agreement with Iran that would grant it the rights to the development of the Chabahar port. China has already signed a deal with Pakistan that puts it in command of the Gwadar port. Last month, a Chinese delegation visited the free trade zone in order to convince Iran to allow it to develop an industrial town in the area. Following a visit by Chinese president Xi Jinping, India had to move quickly to get the contract signed.
COSBY TO GO THROUGH PRETRIAL
Bill Cosby was accused ten years ago of sexual assault on Andrea Constand, an employee at Cosby’s alma mater, Temple University. The former star of the Cosby show is facing three counts of “felony indecent assault” and began his first pretrial hearing on Tuesday in Pennsylvania. During the trial, Cosby’s defense team tried to capitalize on the fact that Constand did not make herself available for cross-examination. The prosecution needs to fulfill their burden of proof. If they are able to do so, the hearings will proceed to a trial, and if Cosby is convicted, he will have to serve 10 years in prison.
MANZIEL’S FRIENDS WORRIED ABOUT HIM
Johnny Manziel was selected at No.22 in the 2014 NFL draft, and went to the Cleveland Browns. He stayed there for two seasons before off-field issues drove him off the field. TMZ Sports reports that those close to Manziel have been worried about his excessive partying. When confronted by his friends about his alleged substance abuse, Manziel refused to acknowledge the problem. He was waived by the Browns in March. In his stint with the Cleveland team, the signal caller was 2-6 as a starter.
TRUMP CLARIFIES GUN POLICY
Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump recently made the declaration that all gun free zones should be eliminated in schools. However, he recanted on Monday, saying instead that teachers and “school resource officers” should be trained in the use of a handgun. Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton accused Trump of wanting to legalize guns in all areas across the United States. The New York magnate fired back, saying that guns should be allowed in some cases. Trump’s ambivalence on the issue has added fuel to the fire of the #NeverTrump movement, a group of Republicans who are vehemently opposed to a Trump presidency.
