Afghan attacks

Richard Bowen | 11:00 UK time, Tuesday, 27 February 2007

At least 19 people have been killed and 10 injured in a suicide attack outside Afghanistan's main US base during a visit by US Vice-President Dick Cheney. Are you in the region? What's been the reaction to this latest attack?

Here's the rest of the news...

Prosecutions linked to the conflict in Sudan's Darfur region are set to move a step closer, as evidence is presented to the International Criminal Court. The Sudanese government though rejects the ICC's authority, saying its own judicial system is capable of trying suspects. Should the ICC be conducting this trial or should it be left to the Sudanese government? Do you think justice will be done?

In New Zealand, Maori politicians have called for a curbing of immigration to the Islands. Maori nationalists called on the government in Wellington to limit the number of migrants from Britain. They think the government is running a secret campaign to prevent the "browning of New Zealand" by encouraging large numbers of white immigrants so that they outnumber those of Pacific and Asian origin who would align themselves with the Maori minority. Are the Maori nationalists right? Or are they overreacting?

The Eta prisoner, Inaki de Juana Chaos, is believed to be close to death following his three month hunger strike. Already in prison 19 years for the killing of 25 people, he began his hunger strike last November in protest against a further three years being added to his sentence for publishing threats in a newspaper. What's the reaction to this story been like in Spain? Should Juana Chaos be allowed to die? Should he be freed?
