Photo: In Australia, an Aboriginal father & his daughter. Suicide is an epidemic facing indigenous communities worldwide - esp. among young people. Indigenous peoples experience higher rates of health risks & poorer health, in part because of discrimination, poverty & marginalization. A new report highlights the urgency of improving their access to health care: http://ow.ly/AqNC302Cryi

Photo: Children of 3 brothers innocently killed in an attack visit their graves in Afghanistan. The brothers were working as street vendors when a deadly suicide blast occurred. The number of civilian casualties in #Afghanistan is at a record high, according to a new UNAMA report. In the report, “the testimony of victims and their families brings into agonizing focus the tragedy of each one of the 63,934 people killed or maimed by this protracted conflict since 2009,” said our High Commissioner Zeid. “The family that lost a breadwinner, forcing the children to leave school and struggle to make ends meet; the driver who lost his limbs, depriving him of his livelihood; the man who went to the bazaar to shop for his children only to return home to find them dead; the broken back and leg that has never been treated because the family cannot afford the cost of treatment; the parents who collected their son’s remains in a plastic bag… In just the past six months, there have been at least 5,166 such stories – of which one-third involve the killing or maiming of children, which is particularly alarming and shameful.” http://ow.ly/g30j302z539

#Paraguay land killings case: Why did authorities investigate the deaths of 6 police officers, but not the 11 peasants who were killed in the same #Curuguaty incident, 4 years ago? We're deeply troubled by the outcome of this trial last week. Allegations of serious irregularities in the investigation must be addressed. In a country where 2.5% of the population owns 80% of land, action on land reform is more urgent than ever. See http://ow.ly/6rMS302qj1z

Photo: At the religious ceremony for human rights lawyer Willie Kimani, who was found in a river - along with his client & their driver - with apparent signs of torture. 4 police officers have been charged in their murder. It's the latest high-profile case in a long list of enforced disappearances and extrajudicial killings in Kenya. UN experts call the Kenyan government to end police brutality & impunity http://ow.ly/6ufG302GVLa

We call on Indonesia to stop the imminent executions of 14 people, mostly on drug-related offences. We're deeply concerned about the lack of transparency throughout the process and compliance with fair trial guarantees, including the right to appeal. See additional coverage in English & Indonesia http://ow.ly/9wnY302EvK6

We oppose the use of capital punishment in all circumstances. “The death penalty is not an effective deterrent relative to other forms of punishment nor does it protect people from drug abuse. The focus of drug-related crime prevention should involve strengthening the justice system and making it more effective,” said our High Commissioner Zeid.

Social media star & feminist activist Qandeel Baloch - known as a bold personality in Pakistan - was strangled to death 4 days ago. Her brother Waseem confessed to the act, claiming this honor killing was necessary to halt the disrepute she supposedly brought to her family. We call on Pakistani authorities to take more measures to educate people on the issue of "honor killings", and to bring to justice the perpetrators of these terrible crimes.

Photo: A young girl raises her hand in a salute to Nelson Mandela. Every year on 18 July — the day he was born — the UN joins a call by the Nelson Mandela Foundation to devote 67 minutes of time to helping others, as a way to mark #MandelaDay. For 67 years he devoted his life to the service of humanity — as a human rights lawyer, a prisoner of conscience, an international peacemaker and the first democratically elected president of a free South Africa. How will you help others? http://bit.ly/l8Ry2H #Time2Serve
