Valery Seleznev, State Duma member representing the Liberal Democratic Party and father of Roman Seleznev, who was recently detained in the Maldives, gives a press conference in Moscow on July 11, 2014The father of a Russian man detained by the US on hacking charges warned Friday his son would die without medical help, raising the stakes in the latest spat between Moscow and Washington. Russia has accused US authorities of abducting Roman Seleznev in the Maldives and secretly transporting him to the American territory of Guam in a case that further piqued Kremlin's anger amid a showdown over Ukraine. He faces up to 30 years in prison for hacking into US retail computer systems and installing malicious software to steal credit card numbers between October 2009 and February 2011. The man's father, Valery Seleznev, told a news conference that his son was disabled and could die within days if he did not receive regular medical treatment.

By Stephanie Nebehay GENEVA (Reuters) - The United Nations human rights chief on Friday voiced serious doubts that Israeli's military operation against Gaza complied with international law banning the targeting of civilians, and called on both sides to respect the rules of war. International law requires Israel to take all measures to ensure that its attacks are proportional, distinguish between military and civilian objects, and avoid civilian casualties, U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay said. "We have received deeply disturbing reports that many of the civilian casualties, including of children, occurred as a result of strikes on homes. Such reports raise serious doubt about whether the Israeli strikes have been in accordance with international humanitarian law and international human rights law," Pillay said in a statement.
