Pharma karma catches up: Shkreli sentenced to 7 years What we're seeing is a man getting sentenced to long stay in Federal Prison for being a supreme asshole who also did a dumb fraud. His lawyer, Benjamin Brafman , argued against a lengthy sentence saying the prosecution had painted "a dark picture" of Shkreli.
The event was attended by some of the country's top politicians, including Chief Executive Abdullah Abdullah and his deputy Mohammad Mohaqiq, a senior Hazara figure.
The death toll has risen to nine, Waheed Majroh, spokesman for the Health Ministry said.
In other developments, the Taliban launched a deadly assault overnight on an army outpost in a remote region of northern Takhar province, killing six soldiers and wounding five, Defense Ministry spokesman Dawlat Waziri said.
Alice Wells, a USA principal deputy assistant secretary of state in charge of South and Central Asian affairs, said Afghan President Ashraf Ghani's offer of talks with the Taliban without any preconditions was the "most specific and forward-leaning proposal" for peace since the US -led invasion in 2001.
The Taliban also ambushed members of the local police who were sent to assist the soldiers, killing 10 policemen and wounding nine, provincial police spokesman Khali Aseir said. He claimed the Taliban had inflicted a far higher number of casualties but the insurgents often exaggerate their claims.
The report couldn't be independently confirmed because of the remoteness of the area.
