In the second IPL game, left-arm spinner Sai Kishore took 4-33 to help Gujarat Titans beat Punjab Kings by three wickets with five balls remaining at Mullanpur.

Kohli (18) was the first man out in Bengaluru's chase after playing a slower full toss back to bowler Harshit Rana with the toss deemed legal height-wise as the batter was standing far outside the crease. Kohli was incensed at the umpire’s decision and made his feelings known, but had to walk off as the Hawk-Eye technology went in the bowler’s favor.

Faf du Plessis (7) holed out off Varun Chakravarthy with Bengaluru down to 35-2.

Will Jacks scored his first half-century with five sixes in 55 off 32 balls. Rajat Patidar (52 in 23) also hit five sixes. The duo put on 102 off only 48 balls for the third wicket.

Andre Russell (3-25) and Sunil Narine (2-34) then brought Kolkata back into the game and Bengaluru lost four quick wickets for 18 runs. Russell dismissed both Jacks and Patidar in the 12th over. Narine sent back Cameron Green (6) and Mahipal Lomror (4) in the very next over.

Impact player Suyash Prabhudessai hit 24 and Dinesh Karthik got 25, both off 18 balls.

Another slower delivery from Rana (2-33) claimed Prabhudessai in the 18th over, while a turning point came when Karthik was caught behind off Russell in the 19th.

Bengaluru needed 21 off six balls in the final over bowled by Mitchell Starc (1-55). Karn Sharma smacked three massive sixes in four deliveries to almost snatch the game away from Kolkata before he lobbed a simple return catch to the pacer.

It resulted in the dramatic finish off the last ball, with Lockie Ferguson short of his crease despite a poor incoming throw.

Earlier, after Kolkata was put into bat, Salt scored 48 off 14 balls with seven fours and three sixes, even as Kolkata lost wickets cheaply at the other end.

Narine was out for 10 and Angkrish Raghuvanshi dismissed for three. Both fell in the sixth over to left-arm pacer Yash Dayal.

Skipper Shreyas Iyer anchored the innings with a mature 36-ball knock of 50 runs. He had key partnerships with Rinku Singh (24) and Russell (27 not out) before he was dismissed in the 18th over.

Kolkata was 179-6 at that stage and 200 looked some way off. But Ramandeep Singh provided the final flourish, smacking 24 not out off nine balls, including two fours and two sixes.

Kolkata climbed up to second in the table, equal on 10 points with Sunrisers Hyderabad but ahead on net run-rate.

Bengaluru are 10th, with a seventh defeat in eight games.

GUJARAT WINS

Kishore's four wickets combined with Afghanistan spinners Noor Ahmad (2-20) and Rashid Khan (1-15) to help dismiss Punjab for 142 runs in 20 overs after Gujarat lost the toss.

Rahul Tewatia then scored 36 not out off 18 balls as Gujarat reached 146-7 in 19.1 overs.

Punjab’s batting fell apart with Prabhsimran Singh top scoring with 35 off 21. He hit three sixes. No other top-six batter exceeded the 20-run mark with Sam Curran scoring 20.

Gujarat’s spinners reduced Punjab to 99-7 in 15.2 overs at one stage.

In reply, Shubman Gill scored 35 and Sai Sudharsan made 31 runs as they shared 41 for the second wicket.

The Titans were cruising before the middle order lost momentum. Liam Livingstone got 2-19, while Harshal Patel took 3-15 to restrict the chase.

But Tewatia helped finish the game for sixth-place Gujarat, with a fourth win in eight games. It was ninth-place Punjab’s sixth loss.

PARIS (AP) — The Syrian soldiers came first, at night, for the son, Patrick, a 20-year-old psychology student at Damascus University, and said they were taking him away for questioning.

They came back the next night for his father, Mazen.

Five years later, in 2018, death certificates from Syrian authorities confirmed to the Dabbagh family that the French-Syrian father and son would never come home again.

In a landmark trial, a Paris court will this week seek to determine whether Syrian intelligence officials — the most senior to go on trial in a European court over crimes allegedly committed during the country's civil war — were responsible for their disappearance and deaths.

The four-day hearings, starting Tuesday, are expected to air chilling allegations that President Bashar Assad's government has widely used torture and arbitrary detentions to hold on to power during the conflict, now in its 14th year.

The French trial comes as Assad has been regaining an aura of international respectability, starting to shed his long-time status as a pariah that stemmed from the violence unleashed on his opponents. Human rights groups that are parties to the French case hope it will refocus attention on the alleged atrocities.

Here's a look at those involved:

— Ali Mamlouk, former head of the National Security Bureau overseeing Syrian security and intelligence services. Allegedly worked directly with Assad. Now in his late 70s.

— Jamil Hassan, former Air Force intelligence director. Survivors testifying in the case allege having seen him at a detention center in the capital, Damascus, where the Dabbaghs are thought to have been held. In his early 70s.

— Salam Mahmoud, in his mid-60s, a former investigations official at a Damascus military airport believed to house the detention center. Mahmoud is alleged to have expropriated the Dabbaghs' house after they were taken away.

The three men are accused of provoking crimes against humanity, giving instructions to commit them and allowing subordinates to commit them through the alleged arrest, torture and killing of the father and son. They also are accused of confiscating their house and of putting Air Force intelligence services at the disposal of people who allegedly killed them.

The accused are being tried in absentia. French magistrates issued arrest warrants for them in October 2018, despite acknowledging that there was little likelihood of their extradition to France. Defense lawyers will not represent them and French magistrates determined they don't have diplomatic immunity.

“The three people accused are very senior officials of the Syrian system of repression and torture. This gives a particular tone to this trial. They are not small fish,” said Patrick Baudouin, a lawyer for rights groups involved in the case.

“The legal file is very detailed, full of evidence of systematic, very diverse and absolutely monstrous torture practices," Baudouin said.

Patrick and Mazen Dabbagh had dual French-Syrian nationality, which enabled French magistrates to pursue the case. The probe of their disappearance started in 2015 when Obeida Dabbagh, Mazen's brother, testified to investigators already examining war crimes in Syria.

Obeida Dabbagh lives in France with his wife, Hanane, and is also a party in the case. According to the trial indictment, seen by The Associated Press, he told French investigators that three or four soldiers came for Patrick around 11 p.m. on Nov. 3, 2013, during the height of Arab Spring-inspired anti-government protests that were met by a brutal crackdown. The soldiers identified themselves as members of a Syrian Air Force intelligence branch. Obeida also testified they searched the house, taking cellphones, computers and money.

They came back the next night for Mazen Dabbagh, who was 54 and worked as a counselor at a French high school in Damascus, and also took his new car, the brother said.

Their death certificates said Patrick died Jan. 21, 2014, and Mazen on Nov. 25, 2017, but didn't say how or where.

French investigating magistrates collected evidence from those who deserted the Syrian government and military, and prison survivors as they built the case.

Testifying anonymously, survivors' accounts speak in the indictment of rape and of being denied food and water; of beatings on the feet, knees and elsewhere with whips, cables and truncheons; of electric shocks and burnings with acid or boiling water; of being suspended from the ceiling for hours or days.

Investigators also studied images provided by a Syrian policeman, who anonymously turned over photographs of thousands of torture victims.

Cameras are generally banned from French criminal trials, but this one will be filmed for historical record.

In a separate investigation, French magistrates have also targeted President Assad himself but face questions about whether he benefits from presidential immunity.

Magistrates are investigating chemical weapons' attacks that killed more than 1,000 people and injured thousands of others in the suburbs of Damascus in 2013. They issued international arrest warrants for Assad, his brother Maher Assad, commander of the 4th Armored Division, and two Syrian army generals — Ghassan Abbas and Bassam al-Hassan — for alleged complicity in war crimes and crimes against humanity.

The French probe was opened in 2021 in response to a criminal complaint by attack survivors. The investigation is being conducted under the principle of universal jurisdiction, which argues that in some cases, crimes can be pursued outside the countries where they take place.

The Syrian government and its allies have denied responsibility for the attacks.

The French warrants, very rare for a serving world leader, were seen as a strong signal against Assad’s leadership at a time when some countries have welcomed him back into the diplomatic fold. Victims' lawyers hailed the warrants as “a crucial milestone in the battle against impunity.”

The Paris appeals court is weighing whether Assad has absolute immunity as head of state. French prosecutors asked it to rule on that question at a closed hearing May 15.

That procedure does not impact the warrants for Assad’s brother and the generals.

In March, Swiss prosecutors indicted Rifat Assad, the president’s uncle and a former Syrian vice president, for allegedly ordering murder and torture more than four decades ago to crush an uprising by the Muslim Brotherhood, an Islamist movement, in the city of Hama, where thousands were killed.

A court in Stockholm put a former Syrian army general who lives in Sweden on trial in April for his alleged role in war crimes in 2012.

Courts in Germany found two former Syrian soldiers guilty in 2021 and 2022 of crimes against humanity. One was sentenced to life imprisonment, the other to 4 1/2 years for complicity. They had claimed refugee status in Germany before former detainees recognized them there. They were tried under the principle of universal jurisdiction.
