After Macron meeting, Hariri says will clarify position in Lebanon

"With regard to the political situation in Lebanon, I will go to Beirut in the coming days, I will participate in the independence celebrations, and it is there that I will make known my position on these subjects after meeting President (Michel) Aoun," Hariri said after holding talks with French President Emmanuel Macron in Paris.

M7 earthquake triggers tsunami warnings for New Caledonia and Vanuatu

Sun, 19 Nov 2017 20:13:52 -0500

(image) An undersea earthquake of magnitude 7.0 struck in the South Pacific on Monday, sending small tsunami waves towards New Caledonia and Vanuatu. The quake, initially reported as magnitude 7.3, struck 51 miles east of the Loyalty Islands and was the second major tremor in the same area in less than 24 hours and the third in the past month. Monday's quake struck at 9.43 am local time (2243 Sunday GMT) at a shallow depth of six miles, east of the remote Loyalty Islands, the United States Geological Survey said. The Pacific Tsunami Warning Centre said small tsunami waves were observed in New Caledonia and Vanuatu, but later said the danger had largely passed. Waves may have reached up to one metre (three feet) above the high tide level in parts of New Caledonia and smaller in Vanuatu, the PTWC said. "Minor sea level fluctuations...may continue over the next few hours," a statement from the agency said. "Government agencies responsible for threatened coastal areas should take action to inform and instruct any coastal populations populations at risk," the PTWC said in an alert. Nervous residents reported feeling several tremors throughout the night before the quake hit. "Parked cars were shaking and everyone went outside," one official from Mare in the Loyalty Islands told AFP. "I thought I was going to faint, I was very afraid and I rushed out of my building," said a resident of central Noumea. A Tsunami threat is forecasted to hit the Southern islands and parts of Central islands. Waves of 0.30 meters to 0.5 meters are likely to hit the coastlines of TAFEA, SHEFA and MALAMPA and possibly SANMA provinces. People from these provinces should take precautionary measures.— Dan McGarry (@dailypostdan) November 20, 2017 Wayan Rigault, communications manager at Hotel Nengone Village on the island of Mare, said there was no immediate damage, but guests were on alert for a formal evacuation warning. "We are a little bit scared, we have had an earthquake last night and today it was quite a big one," he said.  Vanuatu's National Disaster Management Office advised people in southern provinces to evacuate coastal areas for higher ground. New Caledonia's civil security agency said it was still compiling data, and was not planning to evacuate immediately. Authorities in Australia and New Zealand said there were no tsunami threats to either of those countries.

Hunter mutilated in bear attack has face rebuilt in pioneering surgery 

Sun, 19 Nov 2017 08:35:48 -0500

(image) A hunter left disfigured from a near-fatal bear attack has had his face rebuilt after undergoing months of surgeries. Lee Brooke’s nose and moustache were “ripped off” his face during the grizzly attack during a hunting trip in Wyoming in October last year. The 60-year-old told FOX 31 he came across an elk he had shot the day before on his excursion, but quickly realised a bear had already claimed the kill. He turned to leave when the bear suddenly attacked, knocking him unconscious. When he woke he found the aggressive animal standing over him. Mr Brooke recalled the shock of seeing his “nose and moustache laid out on the ground”, adding: “Now I knew what was wrong with my face.” He underwent months of surgeries  Credit: FOX31 Denver (KDVR-TV) He explained: “I felt her sniffing my cheek. I felt her whiskers. “I should’ve bled to death right there. I should’ve at least drowned on my blood.” With blood in his eyes blurring his vision, he managed to reach for a steak knife in his pocket, later joking: “I don’t know that I would have been brave enough to stab her if I could see her. “I had to lean in to stab her in the head. So I was [that] close to her nose.” He spent around an hour alone in the woods before help arrived, recalling: “I said ‘Lord I could do with a little help about now!’” His brother-in-law, George Neal, eventually found him and remembered seeing Lee’s torn-off nose and upper lip on the ground. He grabbed the body parts and stuffed them in Lee's pocket before calling 911. He said the bear “ripped his face right off”. A wild bear (not pictured) attacked him in Wyoming Credit: AP Mr Brooke underwent months of reconstructive surgery at the Swedish Medical Center’s Burn and Reconstructive Unit in Colorado. Dr Benson Pulikkottil and Dr Lily Daniali removed a fibula and a flap of skin from his leg, then used the bone and skin to rebuild his face. Doctors will eventually reconstruct his nose, possibly even using a part of his own nose they managed to preserve. “They were so confident and compassionate and communicated really well back and forth,” said Mr Brooke. “Everybody was phenomenal. They built me up and never let me down. They’re the best of the best.” Woman’s yoga session interrupted by bear licking her neck

Rare white moose saved from hunters in Sweden after police u-turn

Sun, 19 Nov 2017 10:13:49 -0500

(image) A rare white moose’s life has been saved in Sweden after a decision to allow hunters to kill it was overturned. The magnificent moose, named Ferdinand, gained worldwide media attention in August after local politician Hans Nilsson captured him swimming on camera in Värmland, western Sweden. “It was an awesome moment being alone with this incredible animal. Having had that experience, I could not believe that someone would to kill him,” he told The Telegraph.  The elk became a potential target for hunters after police blamed the animal for an attack on a jogger on 6 November. A rare white moose has been saved from hunters in Sweden Credit: Hans Nilsson  “The moose has had two turbulent weeks. It started with a young woman who was out jogging with two dogs attached to a leash around her waist,” Mr Nilsson says. “When they met the moose, the dogs began barking. The moose wanted to defend himself and attacked the dogs. The woman fell to the ground and dislocated her shoulder.” In response to the incident, police “decided to allow local hunters to shoot the moose, claiming that it was a danger to people,” he explains. Mr Nilsson started a petition to protect the moose and it gained more than 14,000 signatures in just a few days. “I was very upset since I knew it is a harmless animal,” he adds. “Luckily, none of the local hunters wanted to kill it.” The nature photographer said the police reversed their decision due to the backlash: “The moose is no longer considered dangerous to humans. The moose is safe and can continue to live in his habitat in western Värmland. “Out of 400, 000 moose in Sweden, maybe 100 of them are white,” he adds. “Most of them live in this area. They are not albino. They have a genetic defect called leucism. They cannot store pigment. “It is very important that we preserve all the white moose so that they can continue to live in the Swedish forests.” Rare white giraffe spotted in Tanzania could be ‘target’ for poachers

Hero police officer saved 'many lives' by bear hugging suicide bomber  

Sat, 18 Nov 2017 09:49:18 -0500

(image) A 'hero' Afghan police officer saved “many lives” by putting a suicide bomber in a bear hug, authorities say. Sayed Basam Pacha died when he confronted the man wearing an explosive vest in the Afghan capital of Kabul on 16 November. His brave actions prevented the bomber from getting closer to a security checkpoint outside a hotel where a political meeting of supporters of an influential regional leader had just finished. The bomber killed 14 people, including seven more police officers, and injured 18, when he detonated his device, however the death toll would have undoubtedly been higher without the officer’s decisive intervention. “He’s a hero, he saved many lives,” Kabul police chief Basir Mujahid told the New York Times. “All seven of those policemen are heroes but especially him. “Just think if that suicide attacker got past the gate, what would have happened - well you cannot even imagine.” His father, Gen Sayed Nizam Agha, said his son “sacrificed himself to save other people”. The Islamic State claimed responsibility for the attack, with the Taliban denying any involvement. Harun Mutaref, who was at the gathering, told AFP, said he saw “many bodies including police and civilians lying in blood”. “After lunch as we were exiting the hall a huge explosion shook the hall, shattering glass and causing chaos and panic,” he said. In October, a suicide bomber thought to be as young as 12 killed five in Kabul’s diplomatic zone, with the Islamic State again claiming responsibility.
