Teachers threaten strikes over workload

Teachers are threatening strike action in support of a 35-hour week, saying they face an “excessive workload”.

The National Union of Teachers, meeting for its annual conference in Liverpool, said politicians had turned a “vocation into a treadmill”. (BBC)

Karzai outburst exposes Kabul’s rift with West

A blistering outburst by President Hamid Karzai on the West exposes a yawning rift between the veteran Afghan leader and the countries whose troops protect him, which could have serious consequences for the eight-year-old war.

Karzai has occasionally sniped at the Western countries that have 120,000 troops in Afghanistan, but his full-throated remarks on Thursday were unprecedentedly bitter and direct.

In a speech to election officials, he accused Western embassies of bribing and threatening officials, tampering with election results and conspiring to weaken the Afghan government. (Reuters)
