Ahmaud Arbery killers convicted of federal hate crimes

TRT World says A US jury has found three men guilty of federal hate crimes for the murder of Ahmaud Arbery, a 25-year-old African American man who was shot dead while jogging in their Georgia neighbourhood in February 2020.

Travis and Gregory McMichael and their neighbour William Bryan, who are serving life sentences after being found guilty of the murder of Arbery on November, were convicted of violating the civil rights of Arbery on Tuesday.

During the federal hate crimes trial, prosecutors recounted the alleged use by the three men of vulgar racial slurs and history of racism.

Arbery’s parents, Marcus Arbery and Wanda Cooper-Jones said they “got justice for Ahmaud,” but also noted that “there’s so many families out there who don’t get victories.”

Today’s news summary – Paper Talk

Wednesday’s front pages focus heavily on President Joe Biden’s decision to not extend the 31 August withdrawal date of US troops in Afghanistan – despite PM Boris Johnson and other world leaders pleas during a G7 meeting on the Afghanistan crisis.

The papers say it is now the last chance to escape the Taliban, with some describing the situation as a “failure” and slamming President Biden for seemingly backing Trump’s “America first” policy. 

Elsewhere, the papers carry front-page tributes to Rolling Stones drummer Charlie Watts – who has died at the age of 80.
