Phillips was 19 years old in 1993 when he was convicted of raping and killing three-year-old Sheila Marie Evans, his then-girlfriend's daughter.

Japan defense minister to quit: NHK

Thu, 27 Jul 2017 06:12:16 -0400

(image) TOKYO (Reuters) - Japanese Defence Minister Tomomi Inada will resign, broadcaster NHK said on Thursday, after a series of missteps, gaffes and a suspected coverup that critics say contributed to a plunge in Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's support. Inada, a conservative protege of Abe who was once floated as his possible successor, had already been expected to be replaced in a cabinet reshuffle planned for next month. ...

Trump continues crusade against Sessions with a fresh line of attack

Wed, 26 Jul 2017 11:23:06 -0400

(image) President Trump continued his public campaign against his own attorney general, Jeff Sessions, on Wednesday, knocking his longtime ally for not replacing acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe. Trump, who fired James Comey as FBI director in May, also has the authority to replace McCabe. It’s unclear why Trump is singling out Sessions on the issue, other than to add pressure as he reportedly mulls firing him.

EU court rejects 'open-door' policy and upholds right of member states to deport refugees 

Wed, 26 Jul 2017 07:34:28 -0400

(image) In a ruling which could have far-reaching consequences for how the European Union deals with migrants in future, the European Court of Justice on Wednesday upheld the right of member states to deport asylum-seekers to the first EU country they enter. The ruling amounted to an effective rejection of Angela Merkel’s controversial “open-door” refugee policy, which saw more than one million asylum-seekers flood into Germany. The court ruled that the EU’s Dublin regulations, under which refugees must seek asylum in the first member state they enter, still apply despite the unprecedented influx of 2015. In doing so, the court ignored the advice of Eleanor Sharpston, its British advocate-general, who warned that the system could leave border states “unable to cope”. The court ruled on the cases of two Afghan sisters and a Syrian man who entered the EU during the 2015 crisis. The Jafari sisters, Khadija and Zainab, entered the EU through Croatia after fleeing Afghanistan with their children. At the time, Mrs Merkel had opened Germany’s borders to migrants and Austria was operating a similar policy. Croatia allowed the sisters and their children to cross its territory in order to reach one of the two countries. Peter Foster talks about Merkel's migrant crisis one year on 01:52 They claimed asylum in Austria, but the Austrian government later reversed its position and returned the families to Croatia, ordering them to seek asylum there. The sisters challenged the decision, arguing they should be given asylum in Austria as they had been allowed to cross Croatia and had not entered its territory illegally. In a second case, an unnamed Syrian man challenged his deportation from Slovenia to Croatia under similar circumstances. The court rejected the challenges, ruling that the fact Croatia had allowed the migrants to cross its territory did not mean the Dublin rules had been waived. The ruling will be welcomed in central European countries like Austria and Slovenia, where there is considerable political resistance to letting in more migrants. But it will cause concern in the countries where most migrants first enter the EU, Italy and Greece, which complain the system leaves them to shoulder too much of the burden. FAQ | Dublin Regulation The court’s decision was unexpected, after the judges took the unusual step of ignoring the advice of the advocate-general. In a written opinion issued last month, Ms Sharpston warned that the Dublin system “was simply not designed to cover such exceptional circumstances”. “If border member states, such as Croatia, are deemed to be responsible for accepting and processing exceptionally high numbers of asylum-seekers, there is a real risk that they will simply be unable to cope with the situation,” she wrote. While the ruling will be seen as a victory by many in central Europe, Hungary and Slovakia suffered a setback in a separate case over EU quotas for sharing asylum-seekers between member states. In an opinion presented to the court, Yves Bot, another advocate-general, said the court should reject a bid by the two countries to have the quota system overturned.

Philippines to consult ASEAN on joint China sea oil search

Wed, 26 Jul 2017 06:02:48 -0400

(image) The Philippines tried Wednesday to reassure Southeast Asian neighbours about its proposal to partner with Beijing in oil exploration in the disputed South China Sea, promising to consult them on any plans. President Rodrigo Duterte has softened his predecessor's policy opposing China's claims -- which expand to nearly the entire sea -- causing alarm among neighbouring Southeast Asian countries, which also hold partial claims. On Monday Duterte said his government was in talks with China over joint drilling for natural resources in the sea, reversing years of tensions.

During a news conference with Lebanese President Saad al-Hariri in the White House’s Rose Garden on Tuesday, Mr Trump was asked about his position on the Shia group. “The prime minister and I have just concluded an extensive conversation about the challenges and opportunities facing Lebanon and its neighbours,” Trump said.

Who is serial killer Joanna Dennehy?

Thu, 27 Jul 2017 04:12:18 -0400

Psychopathic serial killer Joanna Dennehy is serving a whole life sentence for murdering three men before randomly selecting and attempting to kill two others. But who is she and how did the Home Counties schoolgirl become a cold-blooded killer? Who is Joanna Dennehy? Joanna Dennehy Credit: AP Photo/ Cambridgeshire Police Dennehy murdered Lukasz Slaboszewski, Kevin Lee and John Chapman in and around Peterborough over a 10-day period in March 2013.  Police launched a nationwide hunt to find her after the bodies were discovered in remote ditches in Cambridgeshire, but she went on to drive 140 miles to Hereford where she repeatedly stabbed two dog walkers entirely at random. Miraculously they survived. Born in 1982 in St Albans, Hertfordshire, she was raised in a four-bedroom house in the affluent commuter town of Harpenden, Hertfordshire. A regular fixture on the school hockey and netball teams, the mother-of-two doesn't fit the bill of an archetypal serial killer. However she has been diagnosed with several psychopathic and anti-social disorders, including borderline personality disorder. After her arrest she was also diagnosed with paraphilia sadomasochism, where sexual excitement is derived from pain and humiliation. With a history of low-level crime, she was continuously on the police's radar. However no one could have guessed she was to become one of Britain's most notorious killers. Who were her victims? Lukasz Slaboszewski Lukasz Slaboszewski Credit: SWNS.com Her first victim was Lukasz Slaboszewski, 31, a Polish national. Dennehy had met Slaboszewski just days before killing him, at a property in Orton Goldhay, Peterborough on or soon after March 19. He had told friends he had met an "English girlfriend" and it is thought he went to meet Dennehy expecting sex. After being coaxed to meet Dennehy by a series of text messages, the killer stabbed Slaboszewski in the heart before storing his body in a wheelie bin - at one point smirking as she showed the corpse to a teenage girl. John Chapman John Chapman Credit: SWNS.com Dennehy's second victim was John Chapman, who she killed on 29 March. The 56-year-old Falklands veteran lived at a bedsit in the same run-down property as her. High on drink and drugs, he was "at the mercy" of Dennehy as she stabbed him to death. After Dennehy killed him, jurors at Cambridge Crown Court heard that she contacted her accomplice, the 7ft 3in Gary Richards - also known as Gary Stretch - and told him: "Oops, I've done it again." With the help of Stretch and friend Leslie Layton, she then transported the bodies in a car registered in the false company name Undertakers and Sons, before burying them. Kevin Lee Kevin Lee Credit: Newsteam Later that day Dennehy murdered her third victim, her landlord and lover Kevin Lee, 48. Stabbed in the neck and chest, Lee's body - wearing a black sequin dress and arranged in a sexual pose - was discovered in a roadside ditch near Newborough on March 30. Four days later, a farmer found the corpses of Slaboszewski and Chapman in a remote dyke five miles away. Lee, a married father-of-two, apparently[...]

Qatar says new terror list is "disappointing surprise"

Wed, 26 Jul 2017 09:29:47 -0400

(image) By Aziz El Yaakoubi DOHA (Reuters) - Qatar said on Wednesday a decision by four Arab states to add 18 groups and individuals allegedly linked to Doha to their "terrorist" lists was "a disappointing surprise" and that it was doing all it could to fight extremism. Saudi Arabia, Egypt, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Bahrain put another nine groups based in Yemen and Libya and nine people from several Arab countries on the blacklist, saying all were associated with Qatar. "(The new list) comes as a disappointing surprise that the blockading countries are still pursuing this story as part of their smear campaign against Qatar," Sheikh Saif Bin Ahmed al-Thani, director of the Gulf kingdom's Government Communications Office, said in a statement sent to Reuters.

Wed, 26 Jul 2017 15:43:51 -0400

(image) Surveying the rocky no-man's land on Lebanon's eastern border with Syria, Hezbollah fighters on Wednesday recalled the "difficult" battle they fought to recapture much of the terrain from militants. The Lebanese Shiite movement has waged a five-day offensive across the scraggy landscape known as Jurud Arsal to oust what it says are ex-Al-Qaeda Syrian jihadists. The group's head Hassan Nasrallah praised his fighters late Wednesday, saying they were facing "a great military victory" with the enemy holed up in a pocket of territory.

How many nukes are in the world and what could they destroy?

Thu, 27 Jul 2017 04:24:00 -0400

Tensions over nuclear weapons have been raised further after North Korea claimed to have successfully test-launched an intercontinental ballistic missile.  This latest move comes amid increasing concern over North Korea's military capabilities, with the new US administration upping its rhetoric in response.  While the Pyongyang regime increases the frequency with which it is conducting missile tests, Donald Trump's defence secretary Jim 'Mad Dog' Mattis has warned North Korea of an "effective and overwhelming" response if Pyongyang used nuclear weapons. Elsewhere, rhetoric hints at a return of the expansion of nuclear arsenals across the world. In December, Russian President Vladimir Putin told a meeting of defence chiefs that strengthening nuclear capability should be a key objective for 2017. Donald Trump then took to Twitter to respond, vowing to do the same. The United States must greatly strengthen and expand its nuclear capability until such time as the world comes to its senses regarding nukes— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 22, 2016 Such rhetoric has led to concerns about the world's nuclear capacity and the unpredictability of those in charge of the warheads. It seems the world is a long way from "coming to its senses" - with millions of kilotons already in military service around the world. Between them, the world's nuclear-armed states have around 15,000 warheads - the majority of which belong to the US and Russia. It is estimated that just under 10,000 of these are in military service, with the rest awaiting dismantlement, according to the Arms Control Association.  Putin says Russia should strengthen its nuclear arsenal 00:51 Which countries have nuclear weapons? There are five nuclear-weapon states in the world: China, France, Russia, United Kingdom and the United States. These are officially recognised as possessing such weapons by the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons. This treaty acknowledges and legitimises their arsenals, but they are not supposed to build or maintain them forever. Indeed, they have committed to eliminate them.  There are also four other countries that have nuclear weapons: Pakistan, India, Israel and North Korea. These countries didn't sign the Treaty, and together possess an estimated 340 nuclear weapons.  But it's Russia and the US that have by far the most in the world - dominating all other countries by collectively sharing 88 per cent of the world's arsenal of stockpiled nukes. This figure increases to 93 per cent when we consider retired nukes.  How the world's 15,000 nukes are divided How deadly could these nuclear weapons be? The world's current collection of 14,900 nuclear weapons possesses enough power to kill millions of people and flatten dozens of cities.  According to Telegraph research, it is [...]

House votes to kill consumer lawsuit rule

Tue, 25 Jul 2017 18:11:53 -0400

(image) By Lisa Lambert WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. House of Representatives on Tuesday voted overwhelmingly to erase a new rule that lets bank and credit-card customers band together in lawsuits, as the agency that drafted the measure, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, moves closer to the center stage of congressional politics. It now goes to the Senate. The Republican majority in the Senate is slimmer.
