OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — A murder suspect escaped the Oklahoma County jail in Oklahoma City early Friday by using sheets tied together to climb down the outside of the building from a 12th floor cell, authorities said.

Pablo Robledo, 34, who was being held on a first-degree murder charge, and his cellmate escaped by breaking a window of their cell and climbing down, according to jail spokesman Mac Mullings.

Mullings said Robledo was seen on jail security video about 5:25 a.m. outside the jail. He was being sought Friday.

The cellmate, Jose Hernandez, fell or jumped from the makeshift rope at about the fourth floor and was found and arrested by Oklahoma City police.

Jail records show Robledo had been jailed since June 2019 on murder, assault and battery, domestic abuse and other charges.

Amid COVID-19, China Celebrates Dog Meat Festival

Six months since the COVID-19 outbreak, one would think that the Chinese government would be stricter in its control over meat markets. After all, COVID-19 did emerge in one of the wet markets that reportedly sold exotic meat (according to their version). However, instead of curbing such activities, authorities seem to have turned a blind eye toward them. In June, Yulin City in China held its annual dog meat festival, infuriating pandemic experts and animal rights activists.

The festival

The COVID-19 crisis had already created a negative perception of the Chinese regime, which made Beijing take an anti-dog meat stance to create a more favorable impression. Until May this year, several Chinese officials had criticized the dog meat festival in Yulin...

Judge bans lawyers from identifying Epstein abuse victims


NEW YORK (AP) — The judge presiding over the criminal case against a British socialite charged with recruiting teenage girls for financier Jeffrey Epstein to sexually abuse said Friday that her attorneys are not permitted to publicly identify accusers even if they’ve spoken in a public forum.

“Not all accusations or public statements are equal,” U.S. District Judge Alison J. Nathan wrote in her ruling in the case facing Ghislaine Maxwell.

“Deciding to participate in or contribute to a criminal investigation or prosecution is a far different matter than simply making a public statement ‘relating to’ Ms. Maxwell or Jeffrey Epstein, particularly since such a statement might have occurred decades ago and have no relevance to the charges in this case.”

Taiwan: A Memorable Travel Experience in the Midst of the COVID-19 Outbreak

The following is an excerpt from a recent travel experience in Taiwan.

Today we came to Baishawan, one of the most beautiful beaches north of Taipei. We came here with Dewin from Honduras and Pauline from Belgium. A lot of families, a lot of people. Taiwan, despite being almost 200 km away from the Chinese coast, only had approximately 500 cases of coronavirus. It seems that Taiwanese live in another universe outside of this planet.

Taiwan managed to handle the coronavirus situation very well. It seems that while everyone around the world continues to struggle, with each country experiencing difficulties in terms of health, the population in Taiwan is doing very well.

I think Taiwan developed very robust protocols early on, very rigid, but very effective...
