The only man ever convicted in a U.S. court for a role in the Sept. 11 attacks now says he is renouncing terrorism, al-Qaida and the Islamic State. Zacarias Moussaoui is serving a life sentence at a federal prison in Colorado after narrowly escaping the death penalty at his 2006 trial. Instead, prosecutors pinned responsibility on Moussaoui because they said he could have prevented the attacks if he had not lied to the FBI about his knowledge of al-Qaida and its efforts to attack the U.S. when he was arrested in August 2001.

Taiwan will not accept Chinese rule or attempts to “downgrade” its status as a democracy, President Tsai Ing-wen said on Wednesday in an inauguration speech that also celebrated the island’s internationally recognised success in managing the coronavirus. President Tsai won a second term in the presidential election in January, in a landslide that was widely seen as an assertion of Taiwanese identity and rejection of Beijing’s attempts to intimidate and isolate Taiwan on the global stage. Her speech was firm but conciliatory, offering an olive branch to Beijing that Taipei was ready to peacefully negotiate a path through ongoing tensions on an equal footing but would not tolerate being undermined. “Both sides have a duty to find a way to coexist over the long term and prevent the intensification of antagonism and differences,” she said. Beijing deeply mistrusts President Tsai, suspecting that her ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) may attempt to push for independence, and it has refused to engage with her government since it first took power in 2016, ramping up economic, military and diplomatic pressure on the island of 24 million.
