Bamboozled: 'Panda dog' cafe sparks China animal rights debate

Bamboozled: 'Panda dog' cafe sparks China animal rights debateA pet cafe in China where dogs are dyed black and white to look like panda cubs has triggered a heated online debate over the treatment of animals. The Cute Pet Games cafe opened last month in Chengdu, capital of southwest Sichuan province which is home to China's famous giant pandas, and features six panda-like Chow Chow dogs, according to a video posted by Hongxing News on Tuesday. The cafe owner, only identified by his last name Huang, told Hongxing News that he had started offering pet dyeing services after the panda dogs became an instant hit with clients.

Iranian beauty queen pleads for asylum in the Philippines

Iranian beauty queen pleads for asylum in the PhilippinesAn Iranian beauty queen is seeking asylum in the Philippines, fearing for her life after Tehrandemanded her extradition for a crime she claims she did not commit. Bahareh Zare Bahari, who represented Iran at the 2018 Miss Intercontinental pageant in Manila, and who has studied dental medicine in the Philippines since 2014, has been held for six days at the country?s Ninoy Aquino airport after Iran slapped an Interpol Red Notice on her for alleged assault. In a series of messages, the distraught Ms Bahari told the Telegraph that the case was a ?big lie,? adding that she believed she was being targeted for her political activism and outspoken support of women?s rights. If she was deported to Iran, ?they will kill me,? she said. Markk Perete, undersecretary at the Philippine department of justice, said that ?the only reason she was held at the airport - and we really don?t call it detention - it is really restraining her from entering the Philippine territory, is only because of that Red Notice issued against her.? He added that the request had been made ?presumably on account of a pending criminal case against her in Iran, and this case was filed by an Iranian national against her in relation to an assault that happened presumably here in the Philippines.? Bahareh Zare Bahari, who is studying dental medicine, is an outspoken advocate for women's rights Credit: Facebook However, Mr Perete said that the Philippines was unaware of this allegation, and that an earlier accusation of commercial fraud against her had been dismissed. There were no criminal cases pending against Ms Bahari, he confirmed. ?We don?t have any cause for refusing her entry for violation of our laws.? Ms Bahari?s asylum plea is now being considered by the justice department, with the help of a lawyer. Meanwhile, the dental student is confined to Terminal 3?s transit area awaiting her fate. ?There is no updating, no information about the reason why [they] keep me here so long,? she said. She believes her political statement at the pageant - waving a poster of Reza Pahlavi, the exiled former crown prince, and one of the foremost critics of Iran?s Islamic government -made her enemies in Tehran. Mr Pahlavi's name has been invoked by some Iranian groups who have called for a return of the monarchy to deal with corruption and poor economic conditions. ?I used his photo on stage to be [the] voice of my people because all news and media are ignoring my people,? she said. Human Rights Watch on Tuesday called for ?a fair and impartial hearing of her claim? in Manila. ?It?s absolutely critical the Philippines provides Bahareh Zare Bahari with support, including access to legal counsel, to compile and file her asylum application,? said Phil Robertson, HRW deputy Asia director. ?While waiting for the details to become clear, there should be no action under Iran?s Interpol red notice, especially since under Interpol rules a red notice is null and void if the person named in the notice is found to be a refugee fleeing from the state that issued it.?
