Police in India said Saturday they've arrested the son of a junior minister in Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s government after nine people died during protests against new farming laws, per AP.

The big picture: It's the latest escalation in massive ongoing demonstrations against the laws, which were introduced in 2020 to deregulate India's agriculture. Farmers say it's driven down crop prices and benefits big corporations.

Details: Officials said a car belonging to junior home minister Ajay Mishra "ran over" a crowd of protesters in Lakhimpur Kheri, a town in Uttar Pradesh state last Sunday, killing four farmers, AP notes.

  • The minister denied farm leaders accusations that his son Ashish Mishra was in the car at the time. Police said Ashish Mishra failed to provide evidence during daylong questioning that he wasn't there, according to AP.
  • The minister said protesters beat to death his driver and three members of the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party, who were in the vehicle, Al Jazeera reports.
  • Police also recovered the body of a local journalist from the scene, though they've yet to disclose details of his death.

The Dayton Police Department's Professional Standards Bureau is investigating the arrest of a Black man with paraplegia after he was allegedly dragged from his car during a traffic stop in the Ohio city last month.

Why it matters: Newly released bodycam footage shows Clifford Owensby having his hair pulled as he's pulled from his car during his Sept. 30 arrest. He can be heard moments earlier telling a police officer, "I can't step outside the car, sir. I'm a paraplegic," adding that he'd received help getting into the vehicle.

British police on Monday said they will not take action against Prince Andrew following a review of sexual abuse accusations by a Jeffrey Epstein accuser, AP reports.

Driving the news: Virginia Giuffre has accused Andrew of sexually assaulting her at Epstein's London home in 2001 when she was 17 years old. The prince has denied any wrongdoing.

The new cold war panic

The world has seen a power struggle between nuclear powers before, and has seen those countries inch closer to military conflict. But it's never before seen a cold war between two countries as interconnected — with each other and with the rest of the globe — as the U.S. and China.

Why it matters: Escalating antagonism between the world's two superpowers is likely to hinder global cooperation to fight climate change, divert resources to costly arms and tech races, complicate diplomacy for U.S. allies, and victimize Chinese and American citizens living in each other's countries.
