  • Saudi admission over critic's killing shields crown prince

    Golocal247.com news

    Saudi Arabia's admission -- after emphatic denials -- over the killing of critic Jamal Khashoggi is aimed at shifting the responsibility away from the powerful crown prince, whose position so far appears unshaken, analysts say. The kingdom sacked two top aides to Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman as well three intelligence officials and arrested 18 Saudi suspects, in what some analysts called a scapegoating to quell the global outrage over Khashoggi's killing. After 17 days of vehement denials, the kingdom's assertion on Saturday that the journalist was killed in a "brawl and fist fight" inside a Saudi consulate in Istanbul –- without revealing the whereabouts of his body -- fell on sceptical ears around the world.

  • Afghanistan elections delayed in Kandahar as nation braces for  polling day violence

    Golocal247.com news

    Voting for parliamentary elections in Afghanistan's second city has been postponed after a key security official was assassinated and the country braced for widespread insurgent violence on polling day. Taliban commanders on Friday tried to further disrupt the election by issuing a nationwide demand for people to remain at home rather than head to the polls. The vote is seen as a test of president Ashraf Ghani's grip on the country after a grim year of soaring casualties among his forces and civilians and further encroachment by a buoyant Taliban. Dr Ghani's weary international backers, particularly Donald Trump, are desperate for signs of stability and progress after 17-years of pouring troops and money into the country. Yet preparations were dealt a severe blow on Thursday when Kandahar's powerful police chief, Gen Abdul Raziq, was shot dead in an insider attack claimed by the Taliban. Election workers prepare for the country's third parliamentary poll since the Taliban were ousted Credit: Reuters Gen Raziq had been a bastion against Taliban encroachment in the region with a ruthless campaign against the insurgents which had largely stabilised Kandahar and made him the most powerful government figure in southern Afghanistan. The attack at a meeting with US commander, Gen Scott Miller, killed the local intelligence chief and critically wounded the provincial governor, wiping out the local leadership at a stroke. Kandahar, once considered the stronghold of the Taliban movement, was on edge the day after the attack, as funerals were held and officials decided to postpone voting for a week. The Taliban have vowed to disrupt an election they declare a sham and its military council issued a statement warning voters that “participation in this process is aiding the invaders”. It ordered Afghans to “remain indoors and desist from bringing out any means of transport”. A bloody or badly flawed election is predicted to strengthen the Taliban's hand in fledgling talks to find a political settlement to the conflict. More than nine million Afghans are registered to vote in what is only the third parliamentary poll since the Taliban were ousted after the 9/11 attacks. Around 2,500 candidates are standing for 249 seats in a parliament which has in the past decade gained a reputation for graft and greed. This year's polls have already been delayed since 2015 because of rifts within Dr Ghani's government and rows how to clean up the voting system. The vote sees a new generation of election hopefuls, many younger and better educated than previous candidates, take on an old guard frequently tainted with accusations of corruption or involvement in the bloodshed of the 1990s civil war. But the new generation also contains a raft of candidates whose fathers were formerly some of the country's most prominent Mujahideen warlords of the 1990s, and who have been towering figures of Afghan life for decades. This year's voting lists include children of notorious leaders including Gulbuddin Hekmatyar, the Uzbek strongman Gen Abdul Rashid Dostum, and the Herat powerbroker Ismail Khan. Jamaluddin Hekmatyar, whose father is remembered for indiscriminately bombarding Kabul as he squabbled with his former comrades in the 1990s, is standing as a member of his father's Hezb-e Islami party. The 42-year-old told the Telegraph he had not gained his candidacy through nepotism and wanted to “represent the people and fight for their rights”. “I have learned from my father to fight for our values, each nation has the right to be independent and we must fight for a good future, no matter how long that fight would be but we should resist.” He said it was not for him to answer for the deeds of the Mujahideen commanders. “I think it’s not a good analysis if we say only Mujahideen leaders committed mistakes here, we should note foreigners role in Afghanistan too.” The possible rise of children whose fathers presided over the destruction of the 1990s is eyed warily by many Afghans. “There will be no deference between the Mujahideen leaders and their children,” said one Herat resident who lost two uncles during the barbarity of the 1990s, “they are just a shadow of their dads”. “Mujahideen leaders want to rule their policies through their children. They are all educated in the West by the money that their dads received by selling the blood of innocent Afghans.”

The move followed efforts to prevent an escalation in violence that has raised fears of a new war between Israel and the Palestinian territory's Islamist rulers Hamas. "The decision comes after a decrease in the violent events in Gaza over the weekend and efforts Hamas made to restrain" demonstrators, Defence Minister Avigdor Lieberman's office said in a statement.

  • New treatment offers up to ten months extra life for women with deadly breast cancer

    Golocal247.com news

    A new treatment could offer up to ten months extra life for women with one of the most aggressive forms of breast cancer, following a successful British trial. Using a combination of immunotherapy and chemotherapy, the body’s own immune system can be tuned to attack triple-negative breast cancer, scientists found. The research, carried out by Queen Mary University of London (QMUL) and St Bartholomew’s Hospital, also showed that the combined treatment reduced the risk of death or the cancer progressing by up to 40 per cent. Professor Peter Schmid, a professor of cancer medicine at QMUL and the author of the trial, described the results as a “massive step forward”. “Triple-negative breast cancer is an aggressive form of breast cancer; we have been desperately looking for better treatment options,” he said. “It is particularly tragic that those affected are often young, with many themselves having young families.” Triple-negative breast cancer is one of the most deadly forms of the disease and nearly one quarter of patients diagnosed will not survive for more than five years. The standard treatment for it is chemotherapy, which most patients quickly develop resistance to. If the disease spreads to other parts of the body, survival is typically only 12 to 15 months. But with the new treatment, researchers say that survival could be extended by up to ten months. Prof Schmid, who is clinical director of the Breast Cancer Centre at St Bartholomew’s Hospital, explained that he new treatment will “significantly extend lives compared to the standard treatment of chemotherapy alone.” “We are changing how triple-negative breast cancer is treated in proving for the first time that immune therapy has a substantial survival benefit,” he said. “In a combined treatment approach, we are using chemotherapy to tear away the tumour’s ‘immune-protective cloak’ to expose it as well as enabling people’s own immune system to get at it.” About | Breast cancer The new treatment combines the standard weekly chemotherapy with the immunotherapy medication atezolizumab which once every two weeks. The combination works by chemotherapy “roughening up” the surface of the cancer, which enables the immune system to better recognise and therefore fight the cancer as a foreign object. Following the results of this trial, which were published in the New England Journal of Medicine, the new treatment is now under review by health authorities who will decide whether to offer it on the NHS. Patients at St Bartholomew’s Hospital with triple-negative breast cancer are offered immunotherapy as part of ongoing trials. Triple negative breast cancer is more common in women under 40 and black women, according to Macmillan Cancer Support. It is one of the rarer forms of breast cancer, with around 15 per cent of breast cancers classified as triple negative.

  • 'At least 50' dead as train ploughs through festival crowd in India

    Golocal247.com news

    At least 50 people were killed on Friday after a train ploughed into revellers celebrating a Hindu festival in northern India, police said, the latest major accident on the country's crumbling rail network. A crowd had gathered on railway tracks in the city of Amritsar in Punjab state to watch a fireworks show marking the Dussehra festival when the train barrelled down the line at speed. "There are more than 50 dead. The priority now is to take the injured to the hospital," Amritsar city police commissioner SS Srivastava told reporters. More than 60 people who were injured were being given emergency treatment at various hospitals across the city, he added. An AFP photographer at the scene said some victims had lost limbs in the accident while others suffered head wounds. A crowd gathers at the site of the train accident Credit: Prabhjot Gill/AP "There was a lot of noise as firecrackers were being let off and it appears they (victims) were unable to hear the approaching train," a police official told AFP on condition of anonymity. An eyewitness told a local TV channel there was "utter commotion" when the crowds noticed the train "coming very fast" towards them. "Everyone was running helter-skelter and suddenly the train crashed into the crowds of people," he said. Indian relatives and revellers gather around the bodies of the victims of a train accident during the Hindu festival of Dussehra in Amritsar  Credit: NARINDER NANU/AFP Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh ordered an investigation into the deadly accident and announced a monetary compensation of 500,000 rupees ($6800) each to the family of the victims. "We have reports that some 50-60 people have died. We have asked all hospitals to remain open through the night so that the injured can be treated," Singh told reporters. Prime Minister Narendra Modi said he was extremely saddened by the "heart-wrenching tragedy" and asked officials to provide immediate assistance to the injured. Some relatives of the deceased blamed the authorities for allowing a "big function" to be held next to the railway track. An eyewitness said people were taking pictures on their mobile phones and "they were not given any warning that they should not stand on the tracks." India's railway network is the world's fourth largest and remains the main form of travel in the vast country, but it is poorly funded and deadly accidents often occur. The country is home to hundreds of railway crossings that are unmanned and particularly accident prone, with people often ignoring oncoming train warnings.

  • US charges Russian woman Elena Khusyaynova with interfering in US elections

    Golocal247.com news

    The US government on Friday charged a Russian woman with being part of a Kremlin-backed plot to interfere with next month's midterm elections. Elena Alekseevna Khusyaynova, 44, became the first foreigner to be charged in connection with the upcoming elections, rather than the 2016 presidential race. She was accused of having being, since 2014, the chief accountant for "Project Lakhta", a $35 million operation linked to the St Petersburg-based Internet Research Agency, which led Russian social media disruption in 2016. She is accused of conducting "information warfare" against the United States. Khusyaynova continued to file detailed multi-million dollar budgets through 2017, and into 2018, including expenses for placing disruptive adverts on Facebook, promoting social media posts, registering domain names, and paying activists. The operation was said to have been funded by Russian oligarch Yevgeny Viktorovich Prigozhin, who is a friend of Vladimir Putin, and two companies he controls. Yevgeny Prigozhin, right, with Russian President Vladimir Putin at his school meals factory in 2010 outside St Petersburg Credit: Alexei Druzhinin/Sputnik via AP The case was made public shortly after US intelligence agencies, in a rare public statement, warned of concerns about "ongoing campaigns" by Russia, China and Iran, to interfere with the November 6 midterms, and the next presidential election in 2020. Project Lakhta spread misinformation about US political issues including immigration, gun control, the Confederate flag, and protests by NFL players. It also used events including the Las Vegas mass shooting, and the far Right rally in Charlottesville, to spread discord, the US Justice Department said. Using thousands of social media accounts and email addresses and posing as Americans, operatives took different positions on the same issue, in order to inflame tensions. The 38-page US Justice Department complaint included images from Facebook said to have been posted by the Russians, many of them favourable to Mr Trump. One praised the president for "wiping away $22 billion in regulations in his first five months". Inside Russia's 'troll factory': The agency accused of interfering in the US election Another suggested that "every household of illegal immigrants deported saves taxpayers $700,000". Among politicians attacked were Barack Obama and John McCain. Prigozhin and his two companies, Concord Management and Concord Catering, were previously charged in February by Robert Mueller, the special counsel investigating whether Mr Trump's presidential campaign colluded with Russia. The latest charge, against Khusyaynova, was not brought by Mr Muller as he is only looking into the 2016 campaign, not 2018. Prigozhin, who has been sanctioned by the US government, has been nicknamed "Putin's chef" because he has organised banquets for the Russian president. The revelations came as John Bolton, Mr Trump's national security adviser, prepared to make a trip to Moscow next week, during which he is expected to meet Mr Putin.

Kevin Downing, his lawyer, said there were “significant issues with Mr Manafort’s health right now". Manafort was told he will be sentenced on Feb 8 and legal experts suggested he could face at least 10 years in prison.

  • This fifth grader's baked potato costume is better than whatever you've planned for Halloween

    Golocal247.com news

    This is One Good Thing , a weekly column where we tell you about one of the few nice things that happened this week. Halloween is fast approaching and while you may think your planned costume's impressive, there's a very good chance it won't top this fifth grader who dressed as a baked potato. Reddit user seal2781, a 24-year-old named Celia, recently shared a throwback Halloween picture from 2004 — the year she followed her heart and dressed as a baked potato wrapped in foil with a li'l pat of butter on top. Precious! Delicious! All around wholesome! The costume is one of the closest things we've seen to absolute Halloween perfection, and the kind of ensemble we should all strive to put together this time of year. If you're having doubts about how great it is, we're not exaggerating. See for yourself... SEE ALSO: This Kevin from 'The Office' Halloween costume for babies needs to exist IRL Celia told Mashable via Reddit that she fashioned the wearable baked potato for her elementary school Halloween costume contest. The costume won first prize and for that, she received a whole $5!  "The day before the contest I decided I wanted to be a baked potato," she wrote. "I'm not really sure why — I just thought it would be funny." She says her dad Ron helped make the costume out of cardboard boxes. "We covered the boxes in wide plastic wrap to hold it all together, and then covered it in foil and added the fluff and brown paper 'skin.' The pad of butter was just a small pizza box covered in yellow cellophane paper." The baked potato has everything you'd want from a good costume. The homemade aspect shows off your resourceful side, it'll give people a good laugh, and you'll also stand out from a crowd of store bought superheroes, princesses, and more. Though it does have one downfall... "The main thing I remember about the costume was how hot it was. I really felt like a baked potato wearing it," Celia said. But still, an overall success. Celia's family has been cranking out next-level costumes for years, she explained, recalling her brother's most memorable ensemble: a massive five-foot tall baseball bat. Stunning.
