McAfee blogs about police seeking him in Belize

RECOMMENDED READING


McAfee blogging about police hunt

Software company founder John McAfee says he's hiding in plain sight in Belize, wearing a disguise as he watches police and reporters stake out his home — and blogging about it all. Police in the Central American nation called him a "person of interest" in the slaying of fellow American Gregory Viant Faull and asked him to turn himself in for questioning. McAfee, 67, says he didn't kill Faull. He has talked about his case with reporters via email, on cellphone calls from undisclosed locations and now in his blog, "Who is McAfee? The official blog of John McAfee." McAfee, the creator of the McAfee antivirus program, sold his stake in the software company in the early 1990s, and moved to Belize about three years ago to lower his taxes.

Amnesty workers on strike again

Amnesty International workers in London walked off the job Tuesday for the second strike in as many months in an embarrassing setback for an organization that campaigns for the rights of workers and is considered one of the world's pre-eminent human rights advocates. The workers oppose changes that include transferring some of 500 jobs from a centralized London base to 10 regional hubs around the world — part of an effort to be closer to the hot spots where human rights violations occur.
