Purdue Pharma 'offers up to $12bn' to settle opioid cases


  Purdue Pharma, the opioid drug-maker owned by the billionaire Sackler family, is reported to be offering between $10bn and $12bn to settle thousands of lawsuits against it.

The firm is facing over 2,000 lawsuits linked to its painkiller OxyContin.

  On average, 130 Americans die from an opioid overdose every day, according to the US Center for Disease Control and Prevention.

Opioids were involved in almost 400,000 overdose deaths in the US from 1999 to 2017, according to its research.

British armed forces rugby team visit Japanese Yasukuni war criminals' shrine.

  A British military rugby team made a pilgrimage to a Japanese shrine that honors the souls of executed war criminals...

  One of the locomotives from the Thailand-Burma "Death Railway". The 415-kilometer railway celebrated in the museum was built in 1943, when Japanese hegemony saw it colonize much of Asia. The line was constructed by between 180,000 and 250,000 Southeast Asian forced laborers and around 61,000 Allied prisoners of war.
