A Delhi High Court judge on Thursday recused himself from hearing NIA's plea seeking the death penalty for Yasin Malik, the chief of banned Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF), who is undergoing a life sentence in a terror funding case.

Taiwan Detects Record 66 Chinese Aircraft Around Island In 24 Hours

Taiwan's defence ministry said Thursday it had detected 66 Chinese military aircraft around the island in a 24-hour window, a record-high this year, a day after it said Beijing was conducting exercises in nearby waters.

Thursday's record comes a day after Taipei spotted Chinese aircraft around the island that it said were headed to the western Pacific for exercises with the PLA aircraft carrier Shandong. "66 PLA aircraft and seven PLAN vessels operating around Taiwan were detected up until 6 am (2200 GMT Wednesday) today," the defence ministry said in Thursday's statement, adding it...

Yet the 41-year-old had to wait until dismissing last man Jayden Seales in the first innings to extend that tally to 701. But it was a different story on Thursday as Anderson reduced the tourists to 12-1 by bowling West Indies capt...
