'Our war was clean and just' says Kosovo's Thaci
Kosovo President Hashim Thaci on Sunday defended his record, a day before flying to The Hague to be questioned by war crimes prosecutors over his role in the 1998-99 conflict. "Our war was clean and just," said Thaci, now 52, who was the political leader of an ethnic Albanian guerrilla group when it rebelled against Serbian rule. While the rebels of the Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA) had "perhaps committed political errors", they had "in no circumstances violated international law", he told Albania's Top Channel television station.

British Islamic State fighter 'dies in prison' in Syria
A British Islamic State member from East London has died in a prison in northeast Syria, according to the BBC. Ishak Mostefaoui is the first British IS-supporter to die in the custody of the US-backed, Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF). The British government refuses to allow its adult IS prisoner suspects to return to the UK for trial, believing that they should be tried in the region. The year-long impasse between the Kurdish authorities and the UK, and other Western governments has led to dangerously over-crowded prison and camps of IS members. According to one BBC source, Mostefaoui was shot when trying to escape the custody of the jail in Hassakeh which houses over 5,000 IS prisoners from 28 countries in cramped conditions. Another BBC source said that he died during rioting in the prison. Neither his death nor the circumstances surrounding it have been confirmed. The rumours of Mostefaoui's death appear to be circulating from pro-IS Telegram channels. The 27-year-old from Leyton, who admits to joining IS, travelled to Syria to join the terrorist organisation in April 2014. He was among seven students from the University of Westminster, where he was studying economics, who travelled to Syria. Also among them was Mohammed Emwazi, better known as "Jihadi John". Like many captured IS fighters, Mostefaoui admitted to doing administrative work for the group, but denied being a fighter, when interviewed by the Independent last year. The prison, a converted school, was set up shortly after the last of IS territory,

The White House Made a List of All the Times Fauci ‘Has Been Wrong' on the Coronavirus
The White House has undertaken behind-the-scenes efforts in recent months to undercut and sideline Dr. Anthony Fauci—even going so far as to compile a list of all the times he "has been wrong on things," according to The Washington Post. After canceling some of his planned TV appearances and keeping him away from the Oval Office, White House officials and President Trump have taken to publicly expressing a loss of confidence in the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and face of the administration's coronavirus task force. The apparent attempts to undermine Fauci come as he continues to counter the president's overly optimistic narrative on the state of the pandemic. Against this backdrop, an unnamed White House official told the Post: "Several White House officials are concerned about the number of times Dr. Fauci has been wrong on things." The official attached a list of incorrect predictions Fauci had made, including his doubts early on that asymptomatic spread would play a large role in transmission and a February assurance that Americans did not need to change their behavior. Like many other public health officials, Fauci said at first that masks were not necessary but recently recommended that they be mandated nationwide. "Dr. Fauci has a good bedside manner with the public but he has been wrong about everything I have ever interacted with him on," Peter Navarro, the president's trade adviser, told the Post in a separate stateme
