Man charged with posting Prince’s pic

LONDON — A 31-year-old man has been charged in England with sharing a photo of Prince George and details about his pre-school in a social media post prosecutors allege was meant to help others plan terror attacks.

Authorities have accused Husnain Rashid of putting the information about the 4-year-old son of Prince William and the former Kate Middleton on the encrypted platform Telegram.

Britain’s Sun newspaper reported that Rashid allegedly posted the silhouette of an Islamic State fighter beside George, as well as a message suggesting the royal family would not be left alone.

Prosecutors also allege he planned to go to Syria to join IS.

Rashid, from Nelson in northwest England, is charged with one count of preparing acts of terrorism and one count of assisting others to prepare acts of terrorism.

Massacre remains go to families

SAN SALVADOR — El Salvador’s Supreme Court has authorized handing over six sets of skeletal remains from the 1981 El Mozote massacre to a group representing victims’ relatives after forensic experts said they were too decomposed to be individually identified by DNA testing.

The nonprofit group Tutela Legal said the fact that most victims were children disproves the army’s original assertion there was a confrontation with rebels in the village of El Mozote.

The government has now confirmed that of the 978 residents killed by the army, 477 were younger than 12.

Soldiers entered the area looking for guerrillas but killed civilians instead, producing one of the bloodiest massacres of the country’s 1980-92 civil war.
