  2. Ken Clarke:

    What you can't do is leave them in a camp in Syria being even more radicalised... until they disperse themselves through the world and make their way back here, i think the Germans, the French and ourselves have got to work out how to deal with this difficult and, I accept, dangerous problem.

  3. Scott McLean:

Cal Fire usually depends on a mix of bulldozers, fire engines, inmate crews, and helicopters or airplanes, which disperse things like fire retardant, to stop wildfires. Using containment lines, or large areas where a bulldozer cuts away vegetation to the point where only dirt remains, is very common, he said. But this isn’t always an accessible option.

  4. Maung Saung Kha:

    We had just said that we would disperse and end the demonstration and then the police started beating us. They broke police ethics and the rule of law. Nine people from our group have been arrested.

  5. Equality Florida:
