While many children of his age are still learning how to crawl, a nine-month-old boy in Pakistan has been accused of attempted murder in a case observers say highlights endemic flaws in the country’s legal system. Baby Mohammad Musa along with his father and other family members was booked for throwing rocks at gas company officials in the working-class Ahata Thanedaran neighbourhood on February 1, the family’s lawyer Chaudhry Irfan Sadiq told AFP.

Bag’s Take-Away:
Was waiting for it to happen: Fukushima Prefecture kids get their own portable dosimeters.  (Any similarity to the iPod, I assume, is strictly coincidental.)
(photo: Kyodo News Service caption: Children in the town of Kawamata, Fukushima Prefecture, on June 21, 2011, hold compact dosimeters donated by Kinki University in Osaka Prefecture. The dosimeters are scheduled to be distributed to some 1,500 children and teachers at schools and nurseries in the town from the following day in the wake of radiation leaks at the Fukushima Daiichi power plant in the vicinity stemming from the March 11 quake and tsunami disaster. Part of the town has been designated an evacuation area by the central government.)
