New Rules Trap Civilians in War-Torn Eastern Ukraine

The Ukrainian government recently introduced new rules forcing anyone who wants to travel to or from regions held by pro-Russian separatists to apply for permission which is preventing war-weary civilians from fleeing. Those seeking to leave or enter conflict-affected areas must provide documents such as passports and evidence showing why they need to travel through the checkpoints. The process can take up to 10 days — leaving people trapped and in limbo in places like rebel-held Donetsk. Read »

Efforts to free a Japanese journalist held hostage by ISIS were in a "stalemate" after the militants' deadline for a prisoner exchange passed without news of his fate, a top Japanese diplomat told NBC News Friday. "The entire government is working as one to gather, analyze and share information," Japan's Deputy Foreign Minister Yasuhide Nakayama told journalists in Amman, Jordan.
