The deadly BrahMos supersonic cruise missile today became a deep surgical-strike missile after it was tested for the first time from a Sukhoi-30MKI fighter jet. The “marriage” between the fighter jet – which has a cruising range of 3,200-km – and the Brahmos is expected to be “a deadly combination”, defence sources said. The world-class weapon with a multi-platform, multi-mission role is now capable of being launched from land, sea and air. For India, that completes its tactical cruise missile triad.
Samajwadi Party founder Mulayam Singh Yadav has justified his order to open fire on kar sevaks marching towards Ayodhya in 1990.

The United Nations’ Yugoslav war crimes tribunal today convicted Bosnian Serb military chief Gen. Ratko Mladic of genocide. Mladic, 75, has been sentenced to life in prison for atrocities during Bosnia’s 1992-1995 war. Mladic was found guilty of commanding forces responsible for crimes including the worst atrocities of the war – the deadly three-year siege of the Bosnian capital, Sarajevo, and the 1995 massacre of some 8,000 Muslim men and boys in the eastern enclave of Srebrenica, which was Europe’s worst mass killing since World War II.
