Russian activist fined for posting segment of US comedy show

A Russian opposition activist has been fined for posting a segment from an American comedy show on social media because the Islamic State group's flag was displayed.

Russian news agencies said on Thursday a court in the city of Cheborksary has fined Semyon Kochkin, coordinator at the campaign headquarters of t opposition leader Alexei Navalny, 1,500 rubles ($27) for public display of outlawed insignia. Kochkin last year posted on VKontakte a segment from John Oliver's "Last Week Tonight" where the IS banner was shown. Russian law forbids public display of symbols of terrorist organizations.

Rights groups have documented a rise in convictions for social media posts in Russia in recent years. Moscow-based Sova group, which studies human rights, nationalism and xenophobia, said in a statement that Kochkin's prosecution was unlawful.

Gold Star father Khizr Khan plans book for young people

Khizr Khan, the Gold Star father who became a national celebrity after speaking at last year's Democratic National Convention, has a book planned for young readers.

Khan's "This Is Our Constitution" comes out Nov. 14, Alfred A. Knopf Books for Young Readers told The Associated Press on Thursday. The book arrives the same day as his memoir "An American Family," announced last fall.

Khan is an immigrant from Pakistan whose son Capt. Humayun Khan was killed in Iraq in 2004. At the convention, Khizr Khan taunted Donald Trump for his divisive comments about Muslims and held up a pocket-sized edition of the Constitution, wondering if the Republican candidate had read it. According to Knopf, "This is Our Constitution" will help educate readers ages 10 and up about American history.
