Caixa ameaça executar garantias por arena do Corinthians
Em um momento em que luta para se capitalizar, a Caixa Econômica Federal ameaça executar as garantias do empréstimo para a construção do estádio Arena Corinthians, decisão que o clube está tentando reverter. 
 
A dívida do Corinthians com o banco está em mais de R$ 1 bilhão (o empréstimo inicial foi de R$ 400 milhões), e entre as garantias está o Parque São Jorge, sede do clube. 
 
Segundo a Folha apurou, a nova diretoria do clube procurou o banco nesta segunda-feira (5) para tentar reduzir a chance de execução das garantias. 
 
Procurado, o banco afirmou, através de sua assessoria de imprensa, que não comentaria o tema. 
 
Conforme reportagem publicada pela Folha, a Caixa avaliou como grande a possibilidade de levar calote do Corinthians no acordo de pagamento pelo empréstimo para a construção do estádio. 
 
O clube recebeu do banco uma das piores notas na avaliação interna de riscos, segundo e-mails confidenciais, aos quais a Folha teve acesso, em auditoria externa realizada pelo escritório Pinheiro Neto Advogados e agora em posse do Ministério Público Federal.
 
A estatal classificou o clube com a nota "E", com "capacidade para arcar com o compromisso bastante limitada", em análise sobre a proposta de reestruturação da operação de crédito da arena.
 
A troca de mensagens debate sobre um eventual acordo para a volta do pagamento das parcelas pelo empréstimo de R$ 400 milhões feito para a construção do estádio corintiano, por meio de recursos do programa do BNDES Pró-Copa Arenas.
 
O estádio foi inaugurado em 2013 e usado na abertura da Copa do Mundo, no ano seguinte.
 
A Caixa também se mostrou incomodada com o negócio. "A proposta advém de um cenário de constantes frustrações e descumprimentos no âmbito da operação (...), não estão sendo atendido as premissas de receitas, custas e despesas (...), fica evidente que o fluxo de caixa atual do projeto será incapaz de honrar com os compromissos financeiros da Arena".

CAPITALIZAÇÃO
 
A negociação acontece em meio à necessidade de capitalização pela Caixa. O banco precisa de cerca de R$ 6 bilhões neste ano para se enquadrar dentro das regras de instituições financeiras mais sólidas para assumir riscos.
 
A cúpula do banco, mantendo o plano estabelecido ainda no ano passado, descarta o uso de qualquer ajuda financeira externa, como repasse do Tesouro Nacional ou do FGTS (Fundo de Garantia por Tempo de Serviço).
 
O plano de contingência, já aprovado, traça como fontes de recursos para atingir os R$ 6 bilhões uma emissão externa de bônus, a venda de carteiras atraentes e a preservação de uma política mais rígida na distribuição de dividendo aos acionistas, no caso, o governo federal.

AP Exclusive: Letter about abuse cover-up belies pope denial
The letter was graphic not just in describing how the priest kissed and fondled the boy, but also in how other priests who saw the abuse tried to hush it up. Pope Francis said recently that none of the victims had come forward to denounce the cover-up, so the news that the letter was hand-delivered to Francis in 2015 is adding fuel to one of the biggest scandals of his five-year papacy.

Dow tumbles 1,100 points in biggest one-day fall since 2011 - business live

Britain’s FTSE 100 began the week by shedding 108 points or 1.5% to a two-month low of 7334 points.

City firm IG is currently predicting that it could fall by over 250 points when trading resumes on Tuesday.

According to IG Index the FTSE 100 will open tomorrow at around 7050 or over 250 points lower. Of course a lot can happen by then!

Naeem Aslam of Think Markets predicts further losses in the days ahead, given the ferocity of today’s sell-off.

By looking at the market reaction today, one thing is for certain that we are in for a rough ride and Trump can’t blame this one on Obama.

I have a strong feeling that this sell off is going to intensify because bears are seeing blood on the street.

Paris attacks suspect Salah Abdeslam refuses to answer questions at trial

French national says ‘my silence is my defence’ as four-day trial gets under way in Belgium

The only surviving member of the extremist group that carried out the 2015 Paris terror attacks has refused to answer questions as he appeared in court in Brussels for the first time since his capture nearly two years ago.

The centre of the Belgian capital was on high alert as Salah Abdeslam went on trial for the attempted murder of police officers during a shootout in the Brussels suburb of Forest three days before his arrest.

Maldives crisis deepens as government declares state of emergency

Troops storm supreme court after Abdulla Yameen refuses to implement its order to free opposition figures

The Maldives president, Abdulla Yameen, has declared a state of emergency as heavily armed troops stormed the country’s top court and a former president was arrested in a deepening political crisis.

The archipelago was plunged into chaos on Thursday when the supreme court called for the release of nine imprisoned opposition politicians, ruling that their trials were politically motivated and flawed. The government refused to implement the ruling, prompting a wave of protests in the capital, Malé, with angry clashes between police and demonstrators.

Lauri Love ruling 'sets precedent' for trying hacking suspects in UK

A high court ruling blocking extradition to the US of Lauri Love, a student accused of breaking into US government websites, has been welcomed by lawyers and human rights groups as a precedent for trying hacking suspects in the UK in future.

The decision delivered by the lord chief justice, Lord Burnett of Maldon, is highly critical of the conditions Love would have endured in US jails, warning of the risk of suicide.

Dutch gangster famed for kidnap of Heineken boss on trial for murder

Trump: Schiff and senior Obama intelligence figures are 'liars and leakers'

Donald Trump attacked Democrats as “un-American” and “treasonous” for failing to applaud him on Monday, only hours after attacking a laundry list of senior figures in the intelligence community as “liars and leakers”.

During a speech at an Ohio factory, the president denounced Democrats who did not clap at his state of the union address, even though partisan applause – and the lack thereof – has become a commonplace ritual of the speech. Republicans rarely clapped for Barack Obama, for instance, as was the case for Democrats listening to George W Bush.

From the Hadids to the Kardashians: the awkward truth about ‘sexy sisters’

Many people felt that Bella and Gigi’s naked shoot for Vogue was provocative – and creepy. So, why does the sexualisation of siblings remain a staple of pop culture?

The image shows two beautiful young models completely naked, facing each other with their legs intertwined and their hands placed on each other’s bodies. The women blankly stare at the camera in such a way as to signal ... sensuality? Female friendship? Conventional standards of beauty? So far, so boringly normal. But there is a twist: the women are sisters.

The internet now explodes with outrage almost daily and I am as guilty of fuelling it as the next person, so I wasn’t surprised that the image of models Bella and Gigi Hadid, shot by renowned photographer Steven Meisel for Vogue, caused some consternation when it was released last week.

Solo: A Star Wars Story - five things we learned from the first trailer

The first footage has been revealed of the young Han Solo standalone movie in the Star Wars series; what can the minute and a half of film tell us?

Predicting the future of Star Wars by watching a trailer is a bit like trying to work out the result of a sporting spectacle after only viewing the first 90 seconds of action. After all, publicity for 2015’s The Force Awakens featured lines from Mark Hamill’s Luke Skywalker himself, when the grizzled Jedi knight failed to utter a single word in the final cut of JJ Abrams’ film. And most of the scenes in early promos for 2016’s Rogue One were swapped for completely different ones in the finished film.

The best that the new trailer for Ron Howard’s debut venture in the Star Wars universe can give us is a vague glimpse of what might be, further down the line, provided Disney stays on target between now and the movie’s May release date. Here’s what we gleaned from our first look at junior Han and Chewbacca, a long time ago in a galaxy the powers that be presumably hope looks not so far, far away from the one George Lucas showed us in 1977.

Women are finally being heard in this #MeToo moment, so it is ironic that one of this year’s best actress Oscar nominees plays a character who doesn’t say a word. Sally Hawkins, the mute heroine of The Shape of Water, steals the show making barely a sound. Looking back through movie and Oscars history, silence is often golden.

The Uber trial exposing dirty secrets of Silicon Valley's greatest innovators

As a blockbuster trade secrets trial kicks off, Anthony Levandowski is the central figure in the bitter dispute between Uber and Waymo

Anthony Levandowski was still in college when the legend of his engineering prowess began to outstrip the reality.

As an undergraduate, he was feted by the University of California Berkeley after winning an engineering competition by building a robot out of Legos that could sort Monopoly money. That early success – cited in profiles by the New Yorker, the Wall Street Journal, the Financial Times and others – became a key plot point in the origin story of a Silicon Valley superhero: the man credited more than any other with Google’s groundbreaking development of autonomous vehicles.

Look at me: why attention-seeking is the defining need of our times

The urge to belong is universal. So would a better understanding of it help tackle loneliness – and explain why stalkers, spree killers and jihadists turn their pain on others?

There is a famous Jewish mother joke. You’ve heard it before. Question: How many Jewish mothers does it take to change a lightbulb? Answer: “Ah no, I’ll just sit in the dark. Don’t worry about me.” It’s funny, at least the first time, because people do behave like this. “Hey, over here!” they shout. “Ignore me! Ignore me!”

Everyone needs attention, like we need to eat. This is not controversial, nor is it hard to understand. But the idea must be slippery, because it will not stick. If we could keep in mind that people need attention, it would change the way we see almost everything they do, from art to crime, from romance to terrorism. And we must. Facebook alone harvests and sells the attention of 1.4 billion people every day. That’s about a fifth of the world. This alarms some people, and it is a big change. But we can’t know what to make of it until we understand what people need attention for.

The Eagles triumphed exactly when their hearts were supposed to break

Tom Brady has made a career out of killing opponents’ dreams in the final moments of games. But on Sunday it was Philadelphia who held their nerve

To grasp the improbability of the play that clinched Super Bowl LII for the Philadelphia Eagles, you must understand the brilliance of Tom Brady. He has been the NFL’s top quarterback for nearly two decades, a league MVP at 40, because he avoids the inevitable part of football: getting hit.

That’s frustrating for opposing defenses, especially in an era in which teams spend heavily on players whose primary task is to knock the quarterback to the ground. Brady appears to be an easy target for pass rushers. He is tall and slow. He does not move with any great agility. And yet, he has a remarkable ability to see an open receiver, releasing the ball before the defense swarms in.

Watford 4-1 Chelsea: Premier League – as it happened

Antonio Conte’s position will be in serious doubt after his Chelsea side were thrashed 4-1 by Watford, after Tiemoue Bakayoko was sent off in the first-half

And that will do for tonight. Enjoy yourselves Watford fans. Chelsea fans...well, you know the drill by now, surely.

Well then. The most immediate, important note is that Watford now have a slightly plumper cushion between them and the relegation zone - six points, in fact. But the headlines will of course be about the shambles of Chelsea, and the chances of them finding a big bin in which to put Antonio Conte. But, as I mentioned at the start, one wonders if he’ll care: if he really was going to leave in the summer, this way he will merely get a nice wedge for something he was going to do anyway.

As long as there is football there is a good reason to remember Munich | Paul Wilson
There have been worse air crashes involving football teams yet the tragedy that struck Manchester United is always perceived as the most poignant

Each time a significant anniversary of the Munich air disaster comes round those of us lucky enough to be in a position to write about football and its attendant matters are assailed by the same nagging doubts.

Larry Nassar sentenced to up to 125 years in jail in latest sexual abuse case

Nassar pleaded guilty to penetrating girls with ungloved hands when they sought treatment for injuries at Twistars, a gymnastics club that was run by a 2012 US Olympic coach. Nassar has already been sentenced to 40 to 175 years in prison in another county and to a 60-year federal term for possession of child abuse images. He worked for Michigan State University and USA Gymnastics, which trains Olympians.

Here’s what Americans need to know about the UK’s health system | James Ball
Donald Trump’s criticisms of the NHS suggest he doesn’t know much about our system – or the one he presides over

Once again, the president of the United States has elevated a segment on an early morning cable news show into an international diplomatic incident. This time, the subject of the row is the state of the UK’s health service, with a Fox & Friends segment – featuring everyone’s favourite seven-time failed parliamentary candidate, Nigel Farage, as its guest – suggesting the system was on the brink of collapse. Farage said that immigration is the cause.

In a tweet which followed shortly after the news segment, Donald Trump wrote: “The Democrats are pushing for Universal Healthcare while thousands of people are marching in the UK because their U system is going broke and not working. Dems want to greatly raise taxes for really bad and non-personal medical care. No thanks!”

From Tippi Hedren to Uma Thurman, being a muse means being abused

As Thurman recounts how she fought off Weinstein’s advances and was injured in a car crash filming Tarantino’s Kill Bill after she says she was refused a stunt double, it seems some directors put female stars on pedestals just to pull them off

Alfred Hitchcock used to go berserk if he saw Tippi Hedren talking to other men. He had a mask made of her face. A couple of times he threw himself on top of her and assaulted her. When they were making The Birds, he told her mechanical birds would not work and she would have to be attacked by live ones. They were attached to her body with elastic bands. One almost pecked out her eyes. Unsurprisingly, she broke down.

She is still spoken of as his muse.

Tax relief has become a gigantic welfare state for the well-off | Polly Toynbee
The system costs billions that should be going to schools and hospitals. It needs an urgent overhaul

In the palatial surroundings of a Pall Mall club were gathered people of a certain age and a certain wealth. St James’s Place Wealth Management targets by postcode, seeking those not quite rich enough to have flotillas of financial advisers, not too rich to be unflattered by free lunch amid opulence, nor sceptical enough to count how all this marketing cost comes from charges they would pay if they sign up.

The targets are retired folk of the lucky generation, sitting on unexpected fortunes from an untaxed bonanza in their south-east England homes, with very decent pension pots too. They were here to learn how St James could protect their wealth from chancellors present and future to pass their good fortunes down to their families. A slide showing a giant lorry with “taxman” on its bumper showed the threat to the unknowing – as did a sinister picture of Jeremy Corbyn and John McDonnell: “You won’t like what they’re going to do.”

If Americans don't like the word 'inequality', would 'fairness' be better?

This Brexit mess cannot go on. Theresa May must stand down now | Matthew d’Ancona
She is said to be the only senior Tory who could preside over the talks. The trouble is, she’s making Britain an international joke

“Let all the poisons that lurk in the mud hatch out”: the muttered incantation of the emperor in Robert Graves’s Claudius the God has rarely seemed so apposite. It is time for this government to drop the pretence that it is healthy and functioning. A reckoning is long past due. Daily, we see a new pustule or sore – on some days several. According to the Sunday Times, the Brexiteers are plotting to install Boris Johnson as prime minister, Michael Gove as his deputy and Jacob Rees-Mogg as chancellor. The last of those would be especially contentious, since the Moggster has spent much of the past week accusing the Treasury of “fiddling the figures” in its analysis of Britain’s prospective departure from the EU.

Yet – as if to pave the way for an ideological purge of Her Majesty’s Treasury – the leading Brexiteer MP Bernard Jenkin accuses Philip Hammond in the Sunday Telegraph of trying to countermand the prime minister’s argument that we should leave the EU customs union. For those Tories who (mysteriously) regard Brexit as the path to a New Jerusalem, the chancellor’s call in Davos for only “very modest” changes to the UK’s relationship with the EU is simply a provocation too far.

'I really want to find it before I die': why are we so fascinated by lost books?

From the Book of Kells to Walter Benjamin, literary history is marked with tantalising absences – which two bibliophiles have made it their business to go after

In June 1940, with Nazi troops on the verge of invading Paris, German-Jewish exile Walter Benjamin was preparing to leave the city. One of the leading European intellectuals of the 20th century, Benjamin was unable to acquire the necessary documents that would have made it possible for him to escape through the port city of Marseille. Instead, he joined other refugees trekking through the mountains into Spain, making their way to Lisbon where they’d fly out. Slowing Benjamin down was a heavy black suitcase, which contained a manuscript. Speaking to another traveller, Benjamin described the contents as more valuable than his own life.

In the border city of Portbou, Benjamin was informed by Spanish authorities that he would have to go back to France. That night, he swallowed 31 tablets of morphine that he had brought with him for a heart ailment. After his suicide, however, there was no trace of the black suitcase. The manuscript has never been recovered.

Hookworms: are they the most cursed band in pop?

Fraud, flood, the loss of their back catalogue and all their new songs … the Leeds band reveal how they bounced back from all this and more to make knockout new album Microshift

‘It was like being in a disaster movie.” That’s how Hookworms singer Matthew “MJ” Johnson remembers Boxing Day in 2015, when the river Aire burst its banks, engulfing the band’s studio and rehearsal space. He was having lunch at his parents’ house several miles away at the time. The moment he heard the emergency flood alert, Johnson abandoned the meal and drove through rising water to the studio, which was soon five feet under. “The electricity was off and there was an eerie calm,” he says. “It was genuinely scary. I’ve got strong legs through cycling but I kept getting knocked over.”

Because the building, in the Kirkstall area of Leeds, was on a flood plain, he’d been unable to get insurance (even though the last flood had occurred in 1866). By the time he went back two days later to assess the damage, the waters had taken his car, much of the band’s back catalogue, their new recordings and – since he ran the place as a commercial studio – his livelihood. “I looked around,” he says, “and there was nothing left.”

From Lost to Breaking Bad: how your favourite TV shows almost ended

The 10th anniversary of Breaking Bad has inspired all manner of takes, ranging from the obvious (“Five things we can learn from Breaking Bad”) to the downright sacrilegious (“Seven reasons why Better Call Saul might be better than Breaking Bad”). But the greatest take comes from Variety’s sit-down discussion with Vince Gilligan and the Breaking Bad writing team, who suggest that the series almost ended on a fantastically bleak note, with the entire White family slain and only Walter left alive.

Anna Jones’s swede recipes

This humble root is often sidelined, but its versatility means it deserves a chance to shine centre stage

Swede: humble, hearty and, to lots of people, a bit boring. For many years, my sole experience was neeps on Burns Night, or as part of a triumvirate of mashes, school dinner-style. But these two-tone beauties, vibrant purple and off-white, so often reached over for more easygoing parsnips or sweet potatoes, are worth your attention in their own right. They roast as well as they mash and pair brilliantly with spice, especially those with a smoky undertone – smoked paprika, chipotle, cumin, black pepper – which stand up to its sweet backnotes. Cut into batons and roasted, it makes a great alternative to chips, too. Here are two recipes that I cook on repeat.

I have been dogging in secret for years. Should I tell my wife?

My constant casual encounters are beginning to make me feel guilty, but not enough for me to stop. So including her could be the solution

I have been going dogging in various car parks across the UK for more than eight years, and have never told my wife. We have a healthy sex life, but I feel I can’t talk to her about my sexual activity away from her. Recently, I’ve been considering suggesting dogging to her to gauge her response, but don’t want to alienate her. She’s in no way prudish but she’s not an exhibitionist. My constant casual encounters with men and women are beginning to make me feel guilty, but not enough to make me stop. So including her could be the solution.

I imagine it would be relatively easy for you to bring up the subject in a general way and, in doing so, you could gauge her attitude to the practice. If positive, you could perhaps suggest that you give it a try together. But it would be a huge mistake to imagine you could confess your experience in this area with impunity, or to assume that she might enjoy hearing about it, approve, or wish to participate.

The study of around 430,000 people aged between 38 and 73 and living in 22 UK cities found significant associations between the increased walkability of a neighbourhood, lower blood pressure and reduced hypertension risk among its residents.

The response from May – who generally seeks to avoid criticising Trump – came after the president condemned Democrat plans for a universal healthcare system by noting in a tweet Saturday’s protest march in London demanding more NHS funding.

Meet the dogs of Chernobyl – the abandoned pets that formed their own canine community

Hundreds of stray dogs have learned to survive in the woods around the exclusion zone – mainly descendants of those left behind after the nuclear disaster, when residents were banned from taking their beloved pets to safety

We are in the woods behind the Chernobyl plant when the dog runs at us. It is thin, with brindle fur and yellow eyes. Igor, our guide, makes a lunge and clamps his hands over its snout. They wrestle in the snow and icy water shakes from the trees. The dog’s eyes flash as Igor grabs a stick and throws it into the trees. Distracted, the animal chases it and our little group is free to move. But the dog reappears and drops the stick at Igor’s foot. He throws it again. The dog brings it back. I almost laugh with relief.

Igor, who, it turns out, is very familiar with the dog, throws a few snowballs, which it tries to catch and chew. “This is Tarzan,” says Igor. “He’s a stray who lives in the exclusion zone. His mum was killed by a wolf, so the guides look out for him, chuck a few sticks, play a few games. He’s only a baby, really …”

Could ketamine help treat alcohol dependence?

Current treatments for alcohol dependence often fail. So researchers are investigating more unusual interventions

January 2018 has come to an end and with it the month that people increasingly use to abstain from alcohol. It is still unknown whether Dry January has a lasting effect on drinking behaviours, and people with an alcohol dependency problem should always seek support from their GP before going through detox. Nonetheless, Dry January undoubtedly drives a critical conversation about alcohol use and provides an opportunity for us to reconsider our relationship with alcohol (one of the main goals of the charity Alcohol Concern, who support the challenge).

While overall alcohol consumption in the UK is falling, alcohol abuse still represents the fifth biggest risk factor for illness, death and disability across all ages. With current treatments often failing to prevent relapse in the long term, researchers are investigating the possibility of using ketamine combined with psychological therapy to help people stay dry, and not just for January. Despite its often cited use as a recreational drug and “horse-tranquilizer” ketamine is also the most widely used anaesthetic in humans. Administered appropriately in a controlled and safe medical environment, ketamine may also have benefits in the treatment of drug problems.

'We're all competing for the same jobs': life in Britain's youngest city

The 30% of Bradfordians under 20 face a perfect storm of problems, from youth unemployment to racial tension. But many of them insist it’s not all doom and gloom

When it comes to grim urban statistics in Britain, the city of Bradford tops many lists. Police statistics name Bradford as having the highest crime rates in West Yorkshire, while a 2014 YouGov poll named it Britain’s “most dangerous city”. Bradford also has one of the highest levels of youth unemployment in the UK: 26% of young people were out of work in 2015, up from 11.3% in 2004.

What makes these statistics particularly troubling, however, is the one that ties them all together. More than 30% of the population here are currently under the age of 20, and the city has the highest number of under-16s in the country, giving Bradford the unusual title of being the UK’s youngest city.

The magical realism of Santa Cruz del Islote - photo essay

Santa Cruz del Islote is a magical place. A population of up to 1,200 live on an island the size of two football fields in the middle of the Caribbean, making it one of the most densely populated islands on the planet

Santa Cruz del Islote could have come from a book by Gabriel Garcia Marquez. It is magical realism: eighteen families live in 97 houses, there is a school, a restaurant that functions as a port, and a small square with a cross in the middle gives the island – located across from the Gulf of Morrosquillo in the department of Bolívar in Colombia – its name.

The economy is based on fishing and services including cleaning, cooking, tourism guides, which locals provide to the luxurious hotels in neighbouring islands. There is a strong community spirit here – a family who needs help can count on the support of its neighbours.

Top ivory investigator murdered in Kenya

Esmond Bradley Martin, whose groundbreaking investigations helped the fight against elephant poaching, died after being stabbed at home in Nairobi

A well-known American ivory-trade investigator, who pioneered efforts to combat elephant and rhino poaching, has been killed in his home in Nairobi, prompting an outpouring of shock and revulsion across the conservation world.

Esmond Bradley Martin, 75, died after being stabbed in his house in the Nairobi suburb of Langata on Sunday. His wife, Chryssee Martin, found his body. Bradley Martin had led global investigations into illegal wildlife trading since the 1970s and was a charismatic and familiar sight at conservation conferences.

On the Amazon’s lawless frontier, murder mystery divides the locals and loggers

The violent murder of Sairá Ka’apor, in a logging town in Brazil’s Maranhão state, is still unsolved. But the story is all too familiar for the indigenous people fighting to protect the forest

Sairá Ka’apor patrolled one of the most murderous frontiers in the world, a remote and largely lawless region of the Brazilian Amazon where his indigenous community has fought for generations to protect their forest land.

Armed with clubs, bows and arrows, GPS trackers and crude guns, he and fellow members of Ka’apor Forest Guard drove off – and sometimes attacked – loggers who intruded into their territory, the 530,000-hectare Alto Turiaçu Indigenous Land, which is roughly three times the area of Greater London and contains about half of the Amazon forest left in Brazil’s northern Maranhão state. That vigilante role came to an end last April when Sairá was stabbed to death in Betel, a logging town close to Ka’apor territory.

'A rabbit always has to run': Spanish rangers fear for lives after double murder

The killing of two rangers in Catalonia a year ago this week, marked a chilling turning point for colleagues facing up to increasing violence towards Europe’s wildlife defenders

On a hill above the olive trees and dun scrublands of western Catalonia, two rusty iron silhouettes maintain a still and silent vigil. One peers out over the land through a pair of binoculars; the other kneels and holds a bird forever on the cusp of release.

At their feet is a simple plaque: “In memory and recognition of Xavier Ribes Villas and David Iglesias Díez, wildlife rangers whose lives were taken in the line of duty on 21 January 2017.”

The big picture: Afghanistan’s largest state school for girls, Herat, 2009

Monika Bulaj’s photograph of Afghan schoolgirls back in class following the fall of the Taliban

Dozens of young girls are hunched over their books, white headscarves glowing in the dim light, chasing an education, maybe one day even a degree and a job. One is standing up, glancing out of shot towards a teacher, or perhaps just caught up in her dreams.

The image, The Hidden Light of Afghanistan, was captured by Polish photographer Monika Bulaj as part of the Aftermath Project, which aims to document the complicated, messy realities of life in the wake of conflict. Bulaj’s subjects are the Afghans the west claims it went to war for in 2001 – all the women shut out from education and work by the Taliban, children whose lives were suffocated by the narrow strictures of extremism.
