Protesters have taken to the streets of the Bangladeshi capital following the death of a writer in a high-security prison on February 25. Mushtaq Ahmed was arrested 10 months ago under Bangladesh's Digital Security Act (DSA), which allows security forces to carry out arrests without a warrant of anyone criticizing the government online. Ahmed was arrested for comments he posted on Facebook criticizing the government's response to the coronavirus pandemic in May. His bail petition was rejected six times. He was sitting in pretrial detention when he died. Although the circumstances behind the sudden death of Ahmed are not yet clear, protesters are demanding justice, as well as the release of other prisoners who have been arrested under the DSA.

And while there are quarantine rules for travel between the UK and Spain, because Sociedad will have spent … [Read more...] about Man Utd and Tottenham WILL have home advantage for Europa League ties as Uefa give them green light to host second-legs
Amazon will open its first physical store outside the US today - but the shopping experience will be a bit different. Amazon Fresh is in Ealing, London, and it is much smaller than a supermarket. It will sell prepared meals, some groceries, and Amazon devices, as well as having a counter for collecting and returning online orders. Shoppers will scan a smartphone QR code to open the store's gates and their purchases will be tallied using ceiling cameras and shelf weight sensors. The technology can also register when someone has put an item back on the shelf, if they change their mind, for instance.
