India and Pakistan are engaged in an increasingly tense standoff at the Indian-Pakistani border, with both countries accusing each other of harbouring terrorists and committing war crimes.
The latest flare-up came when the Pakistan military fired a missile into India’s territory, killing a Border Security Force (BSF) soldier, triggering a diplomatic standoff that has dragged on for days.
The clash came amid a spike in cross-border attacks in recent months, when the Indian army has killed at least 18 Pakistani soldiers in cross border firing and shelling, triggering protests from both sides.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi has called for a dialogue between the two countries, but Pakistan’s top military chief has said that any such meeting would be “a sham”.
The BSF soldier’s death in the Uri attack on Sunday night has sparked the latest round of violence, which has claimed the lives of five people.
The latest killing occurred on the Pakistan-India border near the town of Dera Ghazi Khan.
The incident triggered India’s government to declare a state of emergency and impose travel restrictions on border areas.
The Australian Mental Health Commission is investigating the mental state of a former school teacher who died last year after having an examination of her mental state.
The hearing is set to start in Sydney on January 20.
The commission’s executive director, Paul White, said on Friday the commissioner would consider the report of a coronial inquest into the death.
He said the commission had been informed of the case by the family of the former teacher.
“She was the first person in Australia to undergo a mental state examination in relation to the coronial inquiry,” he said.
The former teacher was found unresponsive in her car on the outskirts of Brisbane on December 6 last year.
She was taken to hospital but died a short time later.
An inquest into her death was opened and the coroner’s report into the circumstances surrounding her death will be published next week.

WASHINGTON — The Washington Examiner is reporting that a doctor in Oklahoma has been charged with multiple heart attacks.
The Tulsa medical examiner says Dr. Michael T. Jones is suspected of having multiple heart conditions.
Jones is accused of having four cardiac arrests, including two cardiac arrests and a cardiac arrest at age 61.
Tulsa police are looking for Jones’ car, a 2009 Nissan Maxima.
Police said that a nurse who was treating Jones’ son and a nurse from the Oklahoma Heart and Vascular Institute visited the hospital to provide blood and cardiac monitor information.
“It’s a very sad situation for everyone involved,” said Lt.

“The person that we have at this time is a cardiac specialist.
This is a very tragic situation for all involved.”
