Vice News reports that a Dropbox folder called "Hoes hoin" is circulating online, containing 267 explicit photos of female U.S. service members.

Why it matters: This is the second scandal of its kind. Last year, a Facebook group of more than 30,000 U.S. and British Marines, veterans, and civilians — Marines United — was caught sharing "thousands of nude photos" of female service members. In December, Congress made "non consensual sharing of nude photos a criminal offense in the military," Vice reports.

  • After the first scandal, the Marine Corps was allocated $18 million to deal with misogyny, and the photo-sharing specifically.
  • The new Facebook group was called "Blame Marines United (Non-Butthurt Edition)," and had around 400 members.
  • The file of photos contains images "clearly taken by another person in the room," photos of women "performing sexual acts," women "fully clothed, in apparent attempt to shame or discredit them," and even side-by-side collages of "a fully clothed service member in uniform on one side and a nude photo of the same woman on the other."

A Dropbox spokesman said in a statement: "This link has been taken down and banned so it cannot be recirculated on Dropbox. As always, we investigate reports of content that violate our Acceptable Use Policy. If we find a violation, we take down the content and, when appropriate, take other measures such as banning the content and/or reporting to law enforcement."

Go deeper: Two officials said sexual misconduct allegations of Marine officer went ignored.

The Palestinian Authority on Saturday announced fresh coronavirus restrictions, including a partial lockdown, for the occupied West Bank as COVID-19 cases surge.

The big picture: The new measures come as Israel, which leads the world in vaccinations, faces increased pressure to ensure Palestinians in the occupied West Bank and Gaza Strip have equal access to vaccines.

Myanmar's military regime on Saturday fired the country's Ambassador to the United Nations, Kyaw Moe Tun, a day after he gave a pro-democracy speech asking UN member nations to publicly condemn the Feb. 1 coup, The New York Times reports.

Details: State television said the ambassador had "betrayed the country and spoken for an unofficial organization which doesn’t represent the country and had abused the power and responsibilities of an ambassador."
