Trump hostility set to deepen Iran power struggles

Sun, 15 Oct 2017 13:34:37 -0400

(image) By Parisa Hafezi ANKARA (Reuters) - Iranians quickly closed ranks against a hawkish new U.S. approach to Tehran, but Iran's powerful hardliners are set to exploit the latest dispute with Washington to weaken domestic rivals who are open to the West, analysts and insiders say. President Donald Trump's warning on Friday that he might ultimately terminate a landmark 2015 nuclear deal sets the stage for an eventual resurgence of political infighting within Iran's complex power structures, officials said. If the accord signed by Iran and six major powers does start to fall apart, anyone who strongly promoted it, such as pragmatist President Hassan Rouhani, could face a career-damaging backlash.

Somalia's deadliest bombing kills 276, injures 300

Mon, 16 Oct 2017 12:45:16 -0400

(image) Desperate Somalis searched for news of missing loved-ones on Monday, after a massive truck bomb in Mogadishu killed at least 276 people and left 300 injured in the deadliest ever attack to hit the conflict-torn nation. Residents of the Somali capital, while wearily accustomed to regular bombs and attacks by Islamist militants, have been left stunned by the monster explosion Saturday which gutted surrounding buildings and left victims burned beyond recognition. The government said it had set up an emergency committee to help relatives find the missing, with a crisis centre in the capital that residents can turn to.

Maltese journalist who led Panama Papers invesitgation killed in car bomb

Mon, 16 Oct 2017 13:05:17 -0400

(image) Malta’s prime minister has appealed for national unity following the murder of a campaigning journalist who had accused his government of corruption. Daphne Caruana Galizia, 53, achieved fame and notoriety for investigative reporting laced with scathing commentary about allegedly corrupt officials and businessmen. She was killed on Monday when a powerful bomb blew up her car. Forensic experts on the scene of the explosion which killed investigative journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia in Bidnija, Malta Credit: Darrin Zammit Lupi/Reuters Police said the bomb went off while she was driving near the village of Bidnija in northern Malta on Monday afternoon. Joseph Muscat, the Maltese Prime Minister, denounced her murder as a "barbaric attack on press freedom". "I will not rest until I see justice done in this case. Our country deserves justice," he said in a televised statement.  Caruna Galizia’s blog, Running Commentary, was one the most widely read websites on Malta and led the investigation of corruption allegations stemming from revelations in the so-called Panama Papers leak. This is a spiteful attack on a citizen and freedom of expression. I will not rest until justice is done. The country deserves justice -JM— Joseph Muscat (@JosephMuscat_JM) 16 October 2017 It was famed for a relentless pursuit of cases of apparent corruption and incendiary, sometimes highly personal, comments that saw her embroiled in frequent legal battles. Earlier this year Politico magazine listed her as one of the 28 men and women “making and shaking Europe” for her unrelenting crusade against what she saw as Malta’s culture of “cronyism” and opaque government. Ambulance parked on the road where a car bomb killed Daphne Caruana Galizia Credit: Rene Rossignaud/AP In 2016 she reported Konrad Mizzi, the then energy Minister, and Keith Schembri, Mr Muscat’s chief of staff, were named in the Panama Papers leak as owners of off shore companies.  Both men denied wrong doing. Earlier this year Caruna Galizia claimed documents from a small Malta-based bank showed that Mr Muscat’s wife was the beneficial owner of a company in Panama, and that large sums of money had been moved between the company and bank accounts in Azerbaijan. The couple denied the accusation.  Mr Muscat called - and won - early elections in June as a vote of confidence to counter Caruana Galizia's allegations of corruption. In her last blog post, published just hours before she died, she bemoaned the lack of progress in prosecuting alleged corruption cases.   “There are crooks everywhere you look now. The situation is desperate,” she wrote in the last line.

Israel uncovers Roman structure at foot of Jerusalem's Western Wall

Mon, 16 Oct 2017 11:16:00 -0400

(image) Israeli archaeologists in Jerusalem's Old City on Monday unveiled a newly unearthed section of the Western Wall and the first Roman public structure ever discovered in the city, they said. Archaeologist Joe Uziel said he and his colleagues knew the wall section was there and had expected to find a Roman street at its base. The Israel Antiquities Authority (IAA), which conducted the two-year dig, said that historical sources mentioned such structures but in 150 years of modern archaeological research in the city none had been found.

Pot farmer's dreams go up in smoke during California wildfires

Sun, 15 Oct 2017 21:24:39 -0400

(image) By Heather Somerville SANTA ROSA, Calif. (Reuters) - Andrew Lopas' plans to bring his marijuana business out of the black market with a legal, profitable and organic pot farm went up in smoke in the wildfires that have scorched Santa Rosa, California. After four decades of growing pot illegally, the 54-year-old saw an opportunity last year to start a legitimate business serving the medical marijuana market. Last Sunday, as the wildfires, which have now killed at least 40 people, first erupted, Lopas' cannabis farm in Santa Rosa went up in flames, leaving behind the stumps of two chimneys, heaps of ash, charred marijuana plants and a despairing entrepreneur.

Mr Boyle was surprised to hear that Mr Trump had been elected even before he and his wife were forced to film a “proof-of-life” video that was sent to investigators and their family.

This weekend, Trump became the first sitting president to address the Values Voters Summit, a yearly Washington symposium that brings together social conservative leaders and voters seeking “to preserve the bedrock values of traditional marriage, religious liberty, sanctity of life and limited government that make our nation strong”.

Final assault starts on Syria's Raqqa as some Islamic State fighters quit

Sun, 15 Oct 2017 11:58:11 -0400

(image) By John Davison and Ellen Francis AIN ISSA, Syria/BEIRUT (Reuters) - U.S.-backed militias launched their "final" assault on Syria's Raqqa on Sunday after letting a convoy of Islamic State fighters and their families quit the city, leaving only a hardcore of jihadists to mount a last stand. "The battle will continue until the whole city is clean," said a statement by the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), a U.S.-backed alliance of Kurdish and Arab militias. SDF spokesman Talal Selo told Reuters that "no more than 200-300" foreign militants remained to fight on in the city after the convoy left.

Mazda has hinted at both options in recent years but so far has tended to flip-flop between the two. Now, though, a senior Mazda executive has hinted that both options could be on the table.

US says Venezuela regional vote neither free nor fair

Mon, 16 Oct 2017 19:25:31 -0400

(image) The United States on Monday condemned closely watched regional elections in Venezuela as neither free nor fair as European countries also voiced concerns, leaving President Nicolas Maduro increasingly isolated after declaring a landslide win. Maduro's opponents cried foul after official results said his socialist party won governorships in 17 of the troubled oil producer's 23 states in Sunday's elections, defying opinion polls. Washington -- which has imposed sanctions on Maduro and his inner circle over what it calls Venezuela's slide into dictatorship -- said the lack of outside observers, last-minute changes to polling station locations and other irregularities meant the vote was not credible.

U.S. judge in Texas invalidates Allergan patents on Restasis

Mon, 16 Oct 2017 17:34:47 -0400

(image) A U.S. judge on Monday invalidated patents on Allergan Plc's dry-eye medicine Restasis on grounds that the patents cover ideas that are obvious, sending shares of the pharmaceutical company down 3.5 percent. Judge William Bryson issued the ruling in federal court in Marshall, Texas, in a longstanding dispute between Allergan and generic drugmakers Mylan NV, Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd and Akorn Inc. Bryson said a group of patents Allergan obtained on Restasis, which are set to expire in 2024, should not have been granted because they describe methods of treatment that were obvious in light of earlier patents granted to the company.
