In Iraq Brahimi continues talks on political transition

United Nations Special Adviser Lakhdar Brahimi continued his consultations in Iraq today, meeting with a former head of government as part of the effort to prepare for the transition to sovereignty set for 30 June.In addition to having talks with ex-Prime Minister Najib Taleb, Mr. Brahimi met with representatives from a group of Arab nationalist parties. The envoy also held a meeting with members of the network of Iraqi women, representing women active in civil society, as well as with political and religious leaders from Fallujah.Meanwhile in New York, Secretary-General Kofi Annan was asked about the scandal over images of Iraqis being abused by prison guards. “There’s no doubt that the mistreatment of the prisoners has caused a real and deep damage,” he replied. “We are carrying on with our work, and Mr. Brahimi is in touch with a large group of Iraqis and I hope they’ll be able to focus on the work ahead in establishing an interim government without letting the prison issue…hold them back.”He also reiterated how horrible the image of the beheading of a US civilian had been. “We need to really urge everyone to respect the international norms and the rules of law and treat prisoners decently in accordance with the Geneva Convention,” he said. read more

UN official appeals to Security Council to find political solution to end

“It is civilians who continue to bear the brunt of this war,” Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs and UN Emergency Relief Coordinator Stephen O’Brien told the Council, appealing to the 15-member body to find “a political settlement that brings an end to the crisis.”Mr. O’Brien noted that, 18 months after the Security Council adopted resolution 2139, its demands to allow unhindered humanitarian access to the country had gone unheeded, and there had been no reduction in the appalling patterns of human rights violations. Government forces, he said, had repeatedly attacked residential areas during between 17 and 26 August. During the last week of August, non-State armed groups had launched hundreds of shells, killing at least 20 civilians. He warned of a “deliberate targeting of civilian infrastructure,” including water and electricity networks, as well as schools and medical facilities. In 2014, he said, some 169 reported attacks on medical facilities occurred, and 259 medical worked were killed. Additionally, since the start of 2014, the UN has verified at least 84 attacks on or near schools. “Today, Syria is one of the most dangerous places on earth to be a child,” said Mr. O’Brien, noting that over two million children are not in school and a further 450,000 are at risk of dropping out. He also expressed his concern that, in areas controlled by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), schools were using a curriculum designed by the terrorist group. He also outlined the current state of humanitarian aid delivery in Syria, warning that the UN and non-governmental partners were still unable to deliver sufficient quantities of aid to the hardest-to-reach areas of the country.Lack of funding, said Mr. O’Brien, continued to be a major challenge, and that $738 million was needed to fund essential life-saving operations until the end of 2015.The Under-Secretary-General called on members of the Security Council to do more to demand an end to indiscriminate violence in Syria, and to ensure that humanitarian assistance is able to reach all areas of the county. Above all, he said, the Council should find a political solution to “end this nightmare” for the Syrian people. read more

(Photo: AFP)LOS ANGELES, United States (AFP) — US prosecutors have launched a probe to determine whether film star Sylvester Stallone should be charged in connection with a sexual assault reported last year, a spokesman said today.“A case was presented today by the Santa Monica Police Department regarding Sylvester Stallone,” Greg Risling, a spokesman at the Los Angeles District Attorney’s office, told AFP.“It is under review by our sex crime task force.”The case involves a woman who reported last November that the 71-year-old actor, best known for his roles in the “Rocky” and “Rambo” movies, had assaulted her in 1990.Risling declined to provide more details about the alleged assault or to clarify whether California’s 10-year statute of limitations applies in the case.Police in Santa Monica and Stallone’s attorney, Martin Singer, could also not be reached for comment.The allegation against the star comes in the wake of the #MeToo movement that has focused attention on sexual harassment in Hollywood and beyond.Singer in December told US media when the allegation first surfaced that his client “categorically disputes the claim and it is apparent that the woman filed the report to get a media outlet to publish the story.”He acknowledged that Stallone had a relationship with the alleged victim while shooting a movie in Israel in 1987 while he was single.The attorney said at the time that he planned to submit a claim against the woman for filing a false police report.The #MeToo campaign took off last year following sexual assault allegations against Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein. It has since become a worldwide phenomenon.Hundreds of celebrities and powerful people, including actor Kevin Spacey and longtime broadcast journalist Charlie Rose, have been accused of sexual harassment in the wake of the Weinstein scandal. read more

Turkish police detain 400 suspected members of Islamic State

first_img Updated 11.50amTURKISH POLICE HAVE detained hundreds of suspected members of the Islamic State extremist group in nationwide raids, just over a month after an attack on an Istanbul nightclub claimed by the jihadists.Among around 400 detained in the biggest operation so far against IS after the New Year attack were foreigners and those suspected of planning attacks in Turkey, the Dogan and Anadolu news agencies reported.The operation around the country saw 150 suspects detained in Sanliurfa in the southeast and 47 in the nearby city of Gaziantep close to the Syrian border which has a known jihadist presence, Dogan said.Sixty suspects, mostly foreigners, were detained in four districts in the capital Ankara.Dozens more arrests were made in provinces ranging from Bursa in the west to Bingol in the east.In the usually peaceful Aegean city of Izmir, nine people suspected of travelling to and from Syria and planning attacks in the city were detained, Anadolu said.Eighteen people were detained in Istanbul and the neighbouring province of Kocaeli on suspicion of planning attacks. Another 14 foreigners were due to be deported, including 10 children.Thirty-nine people were killed, mainly foreigners, on New Year’s night when a gunman went on the rampage inside a plush Istanbul night club.IS claimed the massacre, its first clear claim for a major attack in Turkey although it had been blamed for several bombings in 2016.Police detained the suspected attacker, Abdulgadir Masharipov, an Uzbek national, on January 16 after over two weeks on the run and authorities say he has confessed to the massacre.The Hurriyet daily reported after the attack that IS also planned a simultaneous New Year’s strike in Ankara but dropped the plot after arrests by the Turkish authorities.Turkey was in 2016 shaken by a string of attacks blamed on IS and Kurdish militants that left hundreds dead.It is also engaged in a battle with IS to take the Syrian town of Al-Bab, in the fiercest fighting yet of the Turkish military’s campaign inside Syria that started in August.- © AFP 2017.Read: 31-year-old Royal Marine admits to stashing explosive devices in the UK> Short URL 9,504 Views Sunday 5 Feb 2017, 10:38 AM Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article Turkish police detain 400 suspected members of Islamic State Some of the people detained are suspected of planning attacks.

At least three killed as huge antigovernment protests become violent in Venezuela

first_img Apr 20th 2017, 9:40 AM By AFP Thursday 20 Apr 2017, 9:40 AM OPPONENTS OF THE Venezuelan government have vowed huge protests will continue today, upping the ante in their bid to oust President Nicolas Maduro after a day of deadly clashes in the oil-rich but beleaguered nation.A 17-year-old boy and a 23-year-old woman died after being shot during massive protests yesterday, and a soldier outside Caracas was said to have been killed, bringing to eight the number of people killed this month in a mounting political crisis.Riot police fired tear gas to force back stone-throwing demonstrators as hundreds of thousands of people fed up with food shortages and demanding elections joined protest marches in Caracas and several other cities.Thousands of Maduro’s supporters held a counter-rally in central Caracas.The opposition has accused Maduro of letting state forces and gangs of armed thugs violently repress demonstrators as he resists opposition pressure for him to quit.Some disturbances continued into the night, with reports of looted bakeries, supermarkets and food centres in western Caracas.Despite yesterday’s deadly violence, his opponents displayed their determination to ratchet up the pressure by calling for renewed protests today.“Today there were millions of us,” senior opposition leader Henrique Capriles told a news conference late last night.“Tomorrow even more of us have to come out.”Shot in headThe 17-year-old boy was shot by gunmen on motorbikes who also threw tear gas canisters into a crowd of protesters, Amadeo Leiva, head of the Clinicas Caracas Hospital which treated him, told AFP.The 23-year-old woman, Paola Ramirez, died after being shot in the head in the western city of San Cristobal, the state prosecution service said later in a statement.A pro-government politician and reservist, Diosdado Cabello, said on his television show that anti-Maduro activists had also “murdered” a soldier in San Antonio de los Altos, a town just south of Caracas, late yesterday. Prosecutors confirmed the death.Authorities had previously reported five other people killed, including a boy of 13, in protests around the country earlier this month.The opposition leader of congress, Julio Borges, and Maduro’s vice president, Tareck El Aissami, traded blame for yesterday’s deadly violence.‘Hour of combat’ Pressure on the leftist president has been mounting since 2014, as falling prices for Venezuela’s crucial oil exports have aggravated an economic crisis.“I don’t have any food in the fridge,” said protester Jean Tovar, 32, who held rocks in his hands ready to throw at military police in Caracas.I have a two-year-old son to support and I am unemployed, and it is all Maduro’s fault.Recent moves by Maduro to tighten his grip on power and ban Capriles from politics have escalated the country’s political and economic crisis and sparked international cries of concern.They have galvanised the often divided opposition in the recent protests in their efforts to force Maduro from power. Maduro opponents hold candles during a vigil in Buenos Aires, Argentina Source: Natacha Pisarenko AP/Press Association Images“We have to end this dictatorship. We’re fed up. We want elections to get Maduro out, because he’s destroyed this country,” protester Ingrid Chacon, a 54-year-old secretary, said.The president in turn has urged his supporters, the military and civilian militias to defend the socialist “Bolivarian revolution” launched by his predecessor Hugo Chavez in 1999.“We are firmly with Maduro out of loyalty to our eternal commander” Chavez, said teacher Nancy Guzman, 50, demonstrating at Maduro’s rally yesterday.US concern The centre-right opposition has called for the military — a pillar of Maduro’s power — to abandon him.But the defence minister, General Vladimir Padrino Lopez, has pledged the army’s “unconditional loyalty” to Maduro, who has accused the opposition of inciting a “coup” backed by the United States.In Washington yesterday, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said the US is “concerned that the government of Maduro is violating its own constitution and not allowing the opposition to have their voices heard”.Venezuelan Foreign Minister Delcy Rodriguez on Twitter said her country “rejects” Tillerson’s statement, dubbing it “systematic interventionism”.Two television channels, El Tiempo of Colombia and Todo Noticias of Argentina, said they were taken off the air in Venezuela during yesterday’s unrest.Election talk According to a survey by pollster Venebarometro, seven in 10 Venezuelans disapprove of Maduro, whose term does not end until 2019.Maduro said yesterday he was willing to face his opponents at the ballot box.“I want to have elections soon … to seek a peaceful path so the Bolivian revolution can put the conspirators, murderers and interventionist right-wingers in their place,” he told a rally of supporters in central Caracas.Regional elections due in December were indefinitely postponed and there is still no date for local polls due this year.

Japon les produits de la mer contaminés au large de Fukushima

first_imgJapon : les produits de la mer contaminés au large de FukushimaGreenpeace a annoncé ce matin que les tests qu’elle a effectués sur les produits de la mer au large de la centrale nucléaire accidentée de Fukushima Daiichi, au nord-est du Japon, ont révélé des taux de radioactivité supérieurs à la limite légale.L’organisation écologiste est très inquiète. Alors que Greenpeace affirme avoir détecté des niveaux de radioactivité nettement supérieurs à la norme admise dans les algues des eaux  territoriales nippones au large de Fukushima, elle craint fortement “les risques à long terme que représente l’eau de mer contaminée pour la population et l’environnement”, rapporte l’AFP. Par ailleurs, ses tests ont également décelé des quantités anormales d’iode radioactif et de césium 137 dans plusieurs espèces de poissons et de coquillages.À lire aussiPourquoi l’eau des océans est-elle salée ?”Nos résultats montrent que des volumes importants de contamination continuent de se répandre à une grande distance de la centrale nucléaire de Fukushima”, a déclaré Jan Vande Putte, expert de Greenpeace, lors d’une conférence de presse à Tokyo.La préfecture de Fukushima s’est défendue en insistant sur le fait que les activités de pêche n’avaient pas repris dans cette zone, et que par conséquent aucun produit de la mer de la région n’avait été mis sur le marché. De plus, les autorités japonaises affirment que les courants et marées devraient rapidement diluer la radioactivité dans l’océan.Le ministère de l’Agriculture, des Forêts et des Pêches publie des analyses effectuées sur les poissons, les crustacés et les algues provenant de préfectures voisines de Fukushima, de manière régulière, précise l’AFP. En cas de dépassement du niveau légal de radioactivité, ces produits sont alors retirés du marché et interdits à la vente.Le 26 mai 2011 à 13:30 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

NFL Players Agree To Temporarily Halt Enforcement Of Anthem Protest Rules

first_imgGrant Halverson/Getty Images/Via NPRMiami Dolphins players kneel during the national anthem before their game against the Carolina Panthers at Bank of America Stadium on Nov. 13, 2017, in Charlotte, N.C.Updated at 12:30 a.m. ET on FridayThe National Football League and the NFL Players Association have agreed to suspend enforcement of new rules requiring players to stand during the pregame rendition of the national anthem, after a report that the Miami Dolphins would fine and/or suspend players for up to four games for violating the policy.A joint statement from the league and the players’ union was issued late Thursday following a report from The Associated Press, citing an internal Dolphins document on the new penalties for defying the league-wide policy. The policy had not yet been made public.“The NFL and NFLPA, through recent discussions, have been working on a resolution to the anthem issue,” the joint statement said.“In order to allow this constructive dialogue to continue, we have come to a standstill agreement on the NFLPA’s grievance and on the NFL’s anthem policy,” it said. “No new rules relating to the anthem will be issued or enforced for the next several weeks while these confidential discussions are ongoing.”The new league policy requiring athletes and staff to “stand and show respect for the flag and the Anthem” on the field was announced in May. The AP’s earlier story cited an anonymous source for the Miami Dolphins document, which amounted to only one sentence in a nine-page document addresses the anthem issue.“It classifies anthem protests under a large list of ‘conduct detrimental to the club,’ all of which could lead to a paid or unpaid suspension, a fine or both,” the AP wrote. The policy was issued this week, according to the wire service. Protests in the locker room are not prohibited.A team source tells NPR’s Tom Goldman that all NFL teams were required to submit rules about the anthem before players reported to training camp — which for the Dolphins was on Wednesday. The source indicated that the team has not made a final decision about how to handle anthem protests.“We will address this issue once the season starts,” the source said. “All options are still open.”Multiple players, inspired by former San Francisco 49er Colin Kaepernick, had been kneeling during the anthem as a silent protest against police brutality against people of color.The league’s policy did not define any punishments for any individual players who protest anyway — instead, it said teams would be fined. Punishments for individuals would be up to their teams.Before the AP’s new report, no details were known about any team’s policy. It is still not clear whether any other teams have similar policies.On Twitter, many sportswriters and high-profile fans denounced the idea of potentially suspending a player for a protest.Mike Freeman, who writes about the NFL for Bleacher Report, called the policy a “disgrace.”We’re suspending players now for protesting social injustices? The shooting of unarmed Americans at the hands of the state? Really? That’s where we are now?— mike freeman (@mikefreemanNFL) July 19, 2018Lindsey Ok, who blogs about the Baltimore Ravens, said she “[w]ould not hate it if the entire Miami Dolphins team protested and then they’d have to backtrack because they’re not gonna suspend the entire team for 4 games.”Would not hate it if the entire Miami Dolphins team protested and then they’d have to backtrack because they’re not gonna suspend the entire team for 4 games. I am here for it— lindsey ok (@lindseyyok) July 19, 2018In a widely shared tweet, Mina Kimes, a senior writer for ESPN, pointed out that a four-game suspension would be a harsher punishment than Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston received for groping a female Uber driver.Jameis Winston was suspended 3 games for groping a woman.— Mina Kimes (@minakimes) July 19, 2018Chris Kluwe — the former Vikings punter who believes his football career was cut short because of his advocacy on behalf of gay rights — also issued a biting retort on Twitter.“Good to see the NFL owners remain committed to employing rapists, domestic abusers, and bigots, but won’t hesitate to suspend players for speaking out on human rights,” he wrote.Good to see the NFL owners remain committed to employing rapists, domestic abusers, and bigots, but won’t hesitate to suspend players for speaking out on human rights.— Cassandra (@ChrisWarcraft) July 19, 2018But Adam Beasley, the Miami Herald‘s Dolphins reporter, said he would be “stunned” if the maximum punishment of a four-game suspension was ever actually enforced.My take: This is simply the Dolphins codifying the NFL policy. I would be stunned if any player is suspended, particularly four games. Also don’t think any player will kneel this year.— Adam Beasley (@AdamHBeasley) July 19, 2018Shortly after the leaguewide policy was first announced, the NFL Players Association filed a grievance against the league on behalf of players, saying the policy “infringes on players rights.”Copyright 2018 NPR.

A festival of sweets and prayers

first_imgFestivals are delightful traditions in any faith as they remind us to take time out from our hectic lives and focus on issues beneficial to us and also the people around us. Eid is an Arabic word meaning ‘festivity’, while Fitr means ‘to break the fast’ and hence the celebration symbolizes the breaking of the fasting period. Eid-ul-Fitr is one of the two major festivals in the Islamic calendar. The celebration of Eid-ul-fitr starts with the beginning of the Islamic month of Shawwal, which is the 10th month of the lunar Islamic calendar and the end of the Islamic holy month, Ramadan.
