Were Gitmo Murders Covered Up As Suicides? – Interview with Joseph Hickman

What really happened at the Guantanamo Bay detention facility on the night of June 9, 2006? According to the US government, three detainees — all imprisoned as part of the global war on terror — hung themselves in their cells that night. But Army Staff Sergeant Joseph Hickman, who was on guard that night at Camp Delta, came to believe something very different: that the three men were murdered in a secret CIA black site at Guantanamo. After leaving the Army, Hickman spent years looking into the deaths. His investigation has led him to write a new book, Murder at Camp Delta. Hickman sat down for the first time on camera with VICE News to tell the story of his investigation and what he learned about what happened that night in 2006.

Perspectives of Life in East Jerusalem (Excerpt from ‘A City Divided’)

Throughout the past several months, Jerusalem has been a scene of clashes and violent attacks. Silwan, a Palestinian neighborhood just steps away from Jerusalem’s Old City, has been at the heart of the unrest, and is becoming one of the most contentious neighborhoods in the most contested city in the world. As settlement expansion into East Jerusalem continues, Israeli authorities have ramped up their practice of demolishing homes built without proper permits — permits which are near impossible for Palestinians to acquire. In addition to the demolitions due to lack of permits, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced in early November the reinstatement of the policy of demolishing terrorists’ homes, which Palestinians claim is a form of collective punishment. In this excerpt, VICE News correspondent Alice Speri meets with a Palestinian and an Israeli living In the same contested neighborhood of Silwan in East Jerusalem.

011915 buscemi sneakers

Jon Buscemi launched his first fashion line at just eight years old. He distributed the shirts and hats throughout his Long Island skate community. And even though he grew up to be a successful stockbroker, he never let go of the dream of having his own fashion brand.

In 2013, Buscemi distributed a limited edition of Italian-made leather sneakers with golden padlocks and miniature keys to select retailers including Barney’s and Neiman Marcus.

The extremely high-end sneakers might not appeal to a wide range of consumers.

Revolution in Burkina Faso: The Fall of Compaoré

In late October, the landlocked African nation of Burkina Faso saw the end of its president’s 27-year-long reign. A popular revolution terminated Blaise Compaoré’s term after he tried to change the constitution so that he could run for a fifth consecutive term. Cornered by an angry mob in his presidential palace, “Beau Blaise” fled the country along with his entourage as protesters torched the National Assembly and other symbols of the old regime. Now in exile, Compaoré is rumored to be living in luxury on the Ivory Coast. In Burkina Faso, a new transitional government has emerged, led by President Michel Kafando and his prime minister, Lieutenant-Colonel Yacouba Isaac Zida. VICE News went to the streets of Burkina Faso’s capital of Ouagadougou in the midst of the revolution to document the final hours of Compaoré’s reign.
