  4. Iran's Zarif warns U.S. of 'consequences' over oil sanctions, offer prisoner swap By Michelle Nichols and Lesley Wroughton Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif sits for an interview with Reuters in New York, New York, U.S. April 24, 2019. REUTERS/Carlo Allegri NEW YORK (Reuters) - The United States must be prepared for consequences if it tries to stop Iran from selling oil and using the Strait of Hormuz, Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif warned on Wednesday, while also offering to negotiate prisoner swaps with Washington. The United States on Monday demanded buyers of Iranian oil stop purchases by May or face sanctions, ending six months of waivers which allowed Iran's eight biggest buyers, most of them in Asia, to continue importing limited volumes. "We believe that Iran will continue to sell its oil. We will continue to find buyers for our oil and we will continue to use the Strait of Hormuz as a safe transit passage for the sale of our oil," Zarif told an event at the Asia Society in New York. Reinforcing Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei's stance, Zarif warned: "If the United States takes the crazy measure of trying to prevent us from doing that, then it should be prepared for the consequences." He did not give specifics. Oil prices hit their highest level since November on Tuesday after Washington's announcement. When asked if the U.S. pressure campaign on Tehran was aimed at sparking further negotiations or regime change, Zarif said: "The B team wants regime change at the very least." He described the B Team as including Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Trump's national security adviser John Bolton. "It is not a crisis yet, but it is a dangerous situation. Accidents ... are possible. I wouldn't discount the B team plotting an accident anywhere in the region, particularly as we get closer to the election. We are not there yet," Zarif said referring to the November 2020 vote for U.S. president. Zarif suggested possible cooperation with the United States to bring stability to Iraq and Afghanistan, a priority for both Tehran and Washington. He also said he was willing to swap British-Iranian aid worker Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe, who has been detained in Iran since 2016, for an Iranian woman detained in Australia for the past three years on a U.S. extradition request. "I feel sorry for them, and I have done my best to help," Zarif said of Zaghari-Ratcliffe. "But nobody talks about this lady in Australia who gave birth to a child in prison. ... I put this offering on the table publicly now - exchange them." Later, in an interview with Reuters, Zarif backed off from a possible prisoner swap for the two women saying the Zaghari-Ratcliffe case was a separate issue, which he was discussing with the British government. "The offer that I made was people who have been in prison either in the United States or elsewhere in the world on American request," he said, "But the Iranian-British woman is a separate case." Zarif told Reuters he was proposing "a serious dialogue" with the United States on a possible prisoner swap. At the Asia Society, Zarif said Iran proposed a possible prisoner swap deal to the U.S. administration six months ago, but had not yet had a response from Washington. "All these people that are in prison inside the United States, on extradition requests from the United States, we believe their charges are phony. The United States believes the charges against these people in Iran are phony. Let's not discuss that," he said. "Let's have an exchange. I'm ready to do it and I have authority to do it," Zarif said.

  6. "even though the airline bans alcohol in economy class on this route, said witnesses." Having a few is the only thing that makes flying in a sardine can bearable,
  7. 'Joseph' seems to be very passionate about all this. I didnt think the Police handled this serious & unpredictable situation very well. They seemed scared & looked as if they didn't know what to do. The outcome appeared more like luck than judgement. Should've Tased him. Twice. As a side note, he most probably was on ya ba; are some of you 'pro druggies' really sure about blanket legalization? Enjoy your day, everyone.
  8. In other words..............pass the buck to someone else.

  10. Er wot? He 'found' a phone in the airport, did not hand it in to Lost and Found, but took it back to his hotel? If you believe that story, ladies and gentlemen, then you'll believe anything. If I found a phone I would hand it in at the information desk. Why would I take it back to my place?
  11. Picture emerges of well-to-do young bombers behind SriLankan carnage By Sanjeev Miglani and Joe Brock A group of men purported to be the the Sri Lanka bomb attackers is seen at an unknown location in this still image taken from video uploaded by the Islamic State's AMAQ news agency April 23, 2019 and received by Reuters via SITE Intel Group. Video uploaded April 23, 2019. AMAQ via SITE INTEL GROUP/Handout via REUTERS TV COLOMBO (Reuters) - Details began to emerge in Sri Lanka on Wednesday of a band of nine, well-educated Islamist suicide bombers, including a woman, from well-to-do families who slaughtered 359 people in Easter Sunday bomb attacks. The Islamic State militant group claimed responsibility for the coordinated attacks on three churches and four hotels. If that connection is confirmed, the attacks looks likely to be the deadliest ever linked to the group. Both the Sri Lankan government and the United States said the scale and sophistication of the coordinated bombings suggested the involvement of an external group such as Islamic State. The Islamist group released a video late on Tuesday through its AMAQ news agency, showing eight men, all but one with their faces covered, standing under a black Islamic State flag, declaring loyalty to its leader, Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi. The one man in the video with his face uncovered was Mohamed Zahran, a Sri Lankan preacher known for militant views. While the video showed eight men, Sri Lanka's junior defence minister, Ruwan Wijewardene, said there were nine suicide bombers. Eight had been identified and one of them was a woman, he said. "Most of the bombers are well-educated, come from economically strong families. Some of them went abroad for studies," Wijewardene told a news conference. "One of them we know went to the UK, then went to Australia for a law degree. Foreign partners, including the UK, are helping us with those investigations." Two of the bombers were brothers, sons of a wealthy spice trader and pillar of the business community, a source close to the family said. Intelligence officials and Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe believe that Zahran, a Tamil-speaking preacher from the east of the Indian Ocean island country, may have been the mastermind. He was well-known for his militant views and fiery Facebook posts, according to Muslim leaders and aSri Lankan intelligence report issued earlier and seen by Reuters. The government suspects two Sri Lankan Islamist groups - the National Thawheed Jama'ut, of which Zahran was believed to have been a member, and Jammiyathul Millathu Ibrahim - were responsible, with outside help. GRAPHIC: Sri Lanka bombings - MISSED WARNINGS The early Sunday bombings shattered the relative calm that has existed in Buddhist-majority Sri Lanka since a civil war against mostly Hindu, ethnic Tamil separatists ended 10 years ago, and raised fears of a return to sectarian violence. Sri Lanka's 22 million people include minority Christians, Muslims and Hindus. Until now, Christians had largely managed to avoid the worst of the island's conflict and communal tensions. The U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation and military were also supporting the investigation into possible foreign connections, the U.S. ambassador to Sri Lanka, Alaina Teplitz, told reporters. "If you look at the scale of the attacks, the level of coordination, the sophistication of them, it's not implausible to think there are foreign linkages," Teplitz said. As well as the huge death toll, 500 people were wounded in the worst ever such militant attack in South Asia. It has also exposed a significant Sri Lankan intelligence failure, with warnings of strikes not acted on and feuds at the highest levels of government. "It is a major lapse in the sharing of intelligence information," Wijewardene said. "We have to take responsibility." Lakshman Kiriella, the leader of parliament, said senior officials had deliberately withheld intelligenceabout possible attacks. "The top brass security officials did not take appropriate actions," Kiriella, who is also minister of public enterprise, told parliament. He said information about possible attacks was received from Indian intelligence on April 4 and a Security Council meeting was chaired by President Maithripala Sirisena three days later, but it was not shared more widely. Sirisena has said his office never received the Indian report. The prime minister also had not been told of warnings of an attack, a minister said. The president fired Prime Minister Wickremesinghe last October over political differences, only to reinstate him weeks later under pressure from the Supreme Court. Two sources close to the president said he had asked the police chief and defence secretary to resign. 'CHECKING ON MUSLIM AREAS' A total of 60 people have been detained for questioning across Colombo, Wijewardene said. That total includes a Syrian, according to security sources. Raids included areas near the Gothic-style St Sebastian church in Negombo, north of the capital, where scores were killed on Sunday, a police spokesman said. An unspecified number of people were detained in western Sri Lanka, the scene of anti-Muslim riots in 2014. "Search operations are going on everywhere, there is tight checking of Muslim areas," a security source said. Most of those killed and wounded were Sri Lankans, although officials said 38 foreigners were also killed. That included British, U.S., Australian, Turkish, Indian, Chinese, Danish, Dutch and Portuguese nationals. Forty-five children were among the dead. The government has imposed emergency rule and an overnight curfew. It said it has also blocked online messaging services to stop the spread of inflammatory rumours that it feared could incite communal clashes.

  22. Forest fire, haze situation in North, Northeast BANGKOK, 25 April 2019 (NNT) - Despite rains in many northern and northeastern areas, the forest fire and haze situation has remained unsolved, such as a forest fire at Nam Lee Tai village in Na Muen district of Nan province where the 32nd Rangers Task Force has put it out, set up fire barriers and stayed on alert. A combined force of personnel in Khun Satharn national park has put out the forest fires on about one rai of land in Nam Lee Tai village, about 20 rai of land in Nakha village and some land in Huay Phee Luang village and set up one-kilometer-long fire barriers. In Ubon Ratchathani province, mists of water has been sprayed to contain PM 2.5 airborne particulate matter which has risen above normal level to 79 micrograms per cubic meter on Thung Sri Muang ground in Ubon Ratchathani City Municipality. In Uthai Thani province, a combined force of personnel has put out forest fires, haze and airborne dust in Larn Sak and Baan Rai districts where sugarcanes had been burned down. The Department of Pollution Control is putting forward a national agenda on airborne particulate matter caused by the haze situation in the North with the help from the National Environment Committee and the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment acting as major forces behind the agenda. Measures will be taken toward the increased efficiency in the administration and management of the affected areas, the prevention and reduction in the origins of pollution and the increased efficiency in the administration and management of pollution. Meanwhile, a third seminar on a Thai-Japanese cooperation project for the management of Bangkok’s air quality was organized on Tuesday. Samples of air were collected at three spots where traffic congestion was usually heavy as well as dense communities including Din Daeng, Bang Na and Soi Ari Samphan. The samples will be sent to Japan for analysis on the original cause of the pollution. Results of the analysis, which are expected by the end of this year, will be studied in effort to find solutions to Bangkok’s PM 2.5 airborne particulate matter. -- © Copyright nnt 2019-04-25
