UN Dispatch: On Sunday, India launched their first Indian-built nuclear-powered submarine, named Arihant. It's a 6000-ton vessel, capable of launching a range of missiles and currently armed with nuclear-tipped ballistic missiles. The Indian officials at the launch were particularly effuse in their thanks to Russia for providing technical support to the sub's development. . . . The sub, in fact, is only 60% Indian materials; the rest, in particular the mini-reactors, was supplied by Russia.

UN Dispatch: The International Monetary Fund's board of directors approved a $2.6 billion loan to Sri Lanka last week. The vote was not without controversy. There are currently hundreds of thousands of ethnic-Tamil civilians trapped in military run concentration camps that are largely off-limits to international humanitarian organizations and international media. These hundreds of thousands of people streamed out of the conflict zone in April during the waning days of Sri Lanka's long civil war. Ban Ki Moon has called the largest of these camps, Manik Farm, "the most appalling scenes" he has witnessed.
