    Uttarakhand, India - Haruli Devi sat on the ground in front of her new two-room house in Singhali village in the hilly northern state of Uttarakhand. For early winter, the afternoon sun was unusually strong as the 65-year-old removed her sweater and wiped her eyes. "My husband was killed in the landslide," she said, remembering the day she became a widow in July two years ago. Her 72-year-old spouse died in a cloudburst in the nearby village of Bastari. She now lives alone, while her two sons work in New Delhi. "The rain didn’t stop, even for a minute. Thunderous lightening made us deaf all through the night," she said.

    'I met my IS captor on a German street'

    A Yazidi teenager sold into slavery by Islamic State has told the BBC of her horror after she escaped to Germany, only to come face-to-face with her captor in the street. Ashwaq was only 14 when Islamic State fighters stormed into northern Iraq, including the heartland of the Yazidi people. They took thousands of women as sex slaves, including Ashwaq - sold for $100 to a man named Abu Humam. Raped and beaten, she managed to escape three months later and then went to Germany with her mother and one brother. A few months ago, on the street outside a supermarket, she heard someone call out her name. She says it was Abu Humam - and he said he knew where she lived. "I never in my life believed that

    Iran's Mossadegh 'would have negotiated with Donald Trump'

    On August 19, 1953, an American-led military coup toppled Iran's first democratically elected government of Prime Minister Mohammad Mossadegh, a move described in a declassified CIA document "as an act of US foreign policy". For the past 65 years, this event has continued to haunt the ties between Tehran and Washington - and in recent months has taken on a new significance amid a renewed diplomatic standoff between the two following US President Donald Trump's decision to withdraw from the 2015 nuclear deal and reimpose sanctions. The move angered Tehran and prompted a range of reactions - from President Hassan Rouhani saying Iran will not negotiate while sanctions are in place, to the Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei declaring that all negotiations are off the table while Trump is president.
