#AceWorldNews says Hamas accuses Twitter of Censorship as armed wing account suspended
A Twitter account of Hamas’s armed wing has been suspended by administrators, the Palestinian Islamist movement said on Thursday. The account of the Ezzedine al-Qassam Brigades has been suspended several times over the past week, and was still inaccessible with a “suspended” notice on Thursday. A spokesman for the armed wing of Hamas, which governs the Gaza Strip, accused Twitter of suppressing freedom of speech. Abu Obaida told AFP that Twitter’s administration is exercising double standards, “giving credibility” to the Israeli army, “allowing it to… use its Twitter account to wage threats.”
#AceWorldNews says a Chinese court on Tuesday convicted a former obstetrician of abducting newborn babies and gave her a suspended death sentence. The intermediate court in Weinan city said Zhang Shuxia sold seven children in the northern province of Shaanxi, AFP reported. The woman had reportedly tricked parents into giving up their babies by telling them the newborns were sick or had died. The penalty is likely to be commuted to life imprisonment. Tens of thousands of children are believed to be stolen each year in China.
