7 hours ago  
News / Mid-Day/ International  
French President Emmanuel Macron on Wednesday pledged to "do better" and act "more" to pay tribute to the victims of the terrorist assaults that had rocked one of Europe's leading powerhouse. "To do better is to recognize that the victims of terrorism are not victims among others but are at the heart of our national fraternity and our memory," Macron told a gathering at the military museum Les Invalides, Xinhua reported. "France has to know how to conduct a memorial, scientific, educational work allowing everyone to understand all the implications and resonances of what regularly strikes us," the president added, noting the necessity "to understand without putting at a distance, to grasp without relativizing and to resist and struggle with a clearer awareness." Furthermore, Macron announced the creation of "a memorial museum of terrorism" and an official commemoration to be celebrated every year. Adding to memorial acts, the head of state stressed that "the concrete actions that the ..
                 

Britain, EU clash over who should give ground on Brexit

7 hours ago  
News / Mid-Day/ International  
British Prime Minister Theresa May clashed with EU leaders on Thursday over who should make the next move to break the Brexit logjam, as time runs out to get a deal. EU Council President Donald Tusk opened a crucial summit in the Austrian city of Salzburg with a stark warning that Britain's position on key issues must be "reworked". He said negotiations on Britain's withdrawal from the European Union, due to take place in March, were reaching a "decisive phase" but said the outcome still remained open. While welcoming the "positive evolution" of Britain's position on security ties, Tusk said that on the Irish border and post-Brexit trading relations, "the UK's proposals will need to be reworked and further negotiated". Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz, who hosted the Salzburg summit, added that the EU was "ready to compromise but we also expect that from the UK", calling for May to offer a "step forward". But May said that after she presented her so-called Chequers plan on post-Bre..

News / Mid-Day/ International  
An orthopaedic surgeon in California who once appeared on a dating reality show and his girlfriend have been charged with drugging and sexually assaulting two women, in a case prosecutors suspect might involve hundreds of other victims. The surgeon, Grant William Robicheaux, 38, and his girlfriend, Cerissa Laura Riley, 31, were charged on September 11 with rape as well as drug and weapons-related offenses in connection with two alleged assaults. Robicheaux and Riley are due to be arraigned on October 25. Investigators found hundreds of videos on Robicheaux's phone after he was arrested, "in various states of undress, consciousness and being assaulted," Van Der Linden said. Orange County district attorney Tony Rackauckas said Robicheaux and Riley had worked in tandem at restaurants and bars to identify their victims and make them feel comfortable. "We believe the defendants used their good looks and charm to lower the inhibitions of their potential prey," Rackauckas said. The pair wo..

Donald Trump: China hitched USD 500 bn 'piggy bank' ride

9 hours ago  
News / Mid-Day/ International  
China has taken out USD 500 billion and more a year from the US to rebuild itself, President Donald Trump said, as he referred to US as a the world's 'piggy bank,' and defended his controversial trade policies, including the latest move to slap duties on USD 200 billion worth of Chinese imports. He said China rebuilt itself with the "tremendous amount" of money pouring out of the US. "Over the last number of years, China has taken out of this country USD 500 billion and more a year. That would go a long way for Poland, wouldn't it? You could rebuild your whole country. And that's what China did," he said while addressing a joint news conference with the visiting Polish President Andrzej Duda at the White House. Trump said he keeps a close watch on trade deficits as it was "very important". Trump has repeatedly pointed to the large US trade deficit as one of the primary reasons his administration has embarked on trade fights with China, the European Union, Canada and Mexico.

Palestinian teen shot dead by Israeli fire in Gaza border clashes: mini

11 hours ago  
News / Mid-Day/ International  
A Palestinian teenager was shot dead by Israeli fire in clashes near the border in southern Gaza Thursday, the health ministry in the enclave said. The ministry said Mumin Abu Ayeda, 15, was shot along the heavily-fortified border east of Rafah in southern Gaza. It said he was part of night time demonstrations which have taken place over months of protests, dubbed the Great March of Return. There was no immediate confirmation from the Israeli army, which typically highlights the often violent nature of such demonstrations and labels them riots. At least 184 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli fire in Gaza since the 'Great March' protests began on March 30. One Israeli soldier was shot dead by a Palestinian sniper. Protests have lessened in intensity in recent months, though smaller demonstrations continue. On Tuesday two Palestinians were shot dead during violent protests next to the Erez crossing into Israel. Demonstrators are calling to be allowed to return to the homes their ..

Hate crime: Indian-origin family targeted in UK aron attack

yesterday  
News / Mid-Day/ International  
An Indian-origin family was forced to flee their home in the UK after it was targeted in an arson attack which the police on Wednesday treated as a "hate crime". Mayour Karlekar, 43, said his wife and two kids suffered a "near death experience" when they woke up to a fire roaring outside the front door of their house in southeast London's Borkwood Park area of Orpington during the weekend, News Shopper daily reported. Karlekar said they were woken up by the neighbours who spotted the flames outside their home early on Sunday, the report said. "I heard some noise under my bedroom window but ignored it. I thought... some folks must be having drinks and partying. But 20 minutes later I heard bells ringing and people were hammering my door to wake us up. I looked at the porch and saw our hedges on fire," he told News Shopper. He said the next few minutes were the scariest he had ever experienced as the hedge fire spread perilously close to his son's window. CCTV footage of the area la..

News / Mid-Day/ International  
In a huge relief to former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, his daughter Maryam Nawaz and son-in-law Muhammad Safdar, the Islamabad High Court on Wednesday suspended their prison sentences in a corruption case and ordered their release. A two-judge bench comprising Justice Athar Minallah and Justice Miangul Hassan Aurangzeb gave the judgment on petitions filed by three challenging the July verdict against them in the Avenfield case, Geo News reported. The reference pertained to the Sharifs' purchase of four upmarket flats in Avenfield House, London. The three were convicted by an anti-corruption court in Pakistan of not being able to prove the source of assets used to purchase the properties. Sharif, Maryam and Safdar had been sentenced to 11 years, eight years and one year respectively. "We accept the petitioners' pleas seeking a suspension in their sentences," Justice Minallah said, adding that the National Accountability Bureau, Pakistan's anti-corruption watchdog, was unable to prove..

Angela Merkel removes spy chief to defuse row over far-right

yesterday  
News / Mid-Day/ International  
Angela Merkel's government on Tuesday removed domestic spy chief Hans-Georg Maassen from office, transferring him to a different post to defuse an explosive row over immigration and the far right that once more rocked the German chancellor's fragile coalition. "Mr Maassen will become state secretary in the interior ministry," Merkel and the leaders of her coalition parties announced in a statement after crisis talks. The face-saving compromise lets Merkel's fourth-term government live to see another day, after her Social Democratic coalition partners had insisted on Maassen's departure as head of the BfV intelligence service, against the wishes of Interior Minister Horst Seehofer from her Bavarian CSU sister party. Maassen, 55, was at the centre of a heated controversy after he raised doubts about the veracity of reports of far-right hooligans and neo-Nazis randomly attacking immigrants in the eastern city of Chemnitz in late August. In his senior new role, essentially a promotion, ..

yesterday  
News / Mid-Day/ International  
Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan arrived in Saudi Arabia Wednesday on his first foreign visit since coming to power, with speculation swirling that he may be seeking economic assistance from the oil-rich ally. The two-day trip began exactly one month after Khan assumed office, with Pakistan possibly seeking billions of dollars in assistance from allies as it seeks to avert a balance-of-payments crisis. Khan, who was accompanied by Finance Minister Asad Umar and Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi, was set to meet Saudi King Salman in the western city of Jeddah, local officials said. "A state banquet will be hosted by King Salman at the Royal Court," the Saudi information ministry's Centre for International Communications said in a statement.

China took out $500 billion a year from US to rebuild itself: Trump

yesterday  
News / Mid-Day/ International  
US President Donald Trump has once again attacked China and said that China has taken out USD 500 billion and more a year from the US to rebuild itself, President Donald Trump has said as he defended his controversial trade policies, including the latest move to slap duties on USD 200 billion worth of Chinese imports. Trump's remarks came a day after Trump announced that the US will slap 10 per cent tariffs on USD 200 billion worth of Chinese imports and the duties will rise to whopping 25 per cent at the end of the year. America and China have been involved in a bitter war of words over the past few months over tariffs and imports and according to many analysts Donald Trump is staying true to his leadership style and is staying true to his motto of 'America first' and 'Make America Great Again'. "If you look at what's going on, our market is going up like a rocket ship. I don't want their market to go down, but their market is down 32 per cent in three months.

Russia blames Israel for recce aircraft crash

yesterday  
News / Mid-Day/ International  
A Russian reconnaissance aircraft was brought down by a Syrian missile over the Mediterranean, killing all 15 people on board, the Russian defence ministry said Tuesday. It blamed Israel for the crash, saying the plane was caught in the crossfire as four Israeli fighters attacked targets in northwestern Syria. The Russian military said that the Il-20 reconnaissance aircraft was hit 35 kilometres off the coast late Monday as it was returning to its home base nearby. "The Israeli pilots were using the Russian aircraft as a shield and pushed it into the line of fire of the Syrian defense," Ministry spokesman Maj. Gen. Igor Konashenkov said in a statement. A Russian defence ministry statement said defence Minister Sergei Shoigu told his Israeli counterpart, Avigdor Lieberman, that Israel is "fully to blame" for the deaths. The military said Israel did not warn it of its operation over Latakia province until one minute before the strike, which did not give the Russian plane enough time to..

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo welcomed Pyongyang's "important commitments" made by Pyongyang during Wednesday's inter-Korean summit, adding Washington was ready to begin negotiating immediately to achieve the denuclearisation of North Korea "by January 2021". In a statement, Pompeo said he spoke with his North Korean counterpart Wednesday morning and invited him to meet in New York next week on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly. The statement came after the North's leader Kim Jong Un agreed to make a historic visit to Seoul soon and close a missile testing site in front of international inspectors in a meeting with the South's President Moon Jae-in. Progress on the key issue of the North's nuclear arsenal was limited, but the two signed a document to strengthen ties between the two halves of the divided peninsula. Building on a growing rapprochement, they agreed to create a facility to hold family reunions at any time, work towards joining up road and rail links..
                 

Pakistan militants continue terror attacks in India: US report

11 hours ago  
News / Mid-Day/ International  
The Trump administration on Wednesday praised India for its significant counter terrorism actions and said Pakistan-based militant groups continued their terror attacks in the country. In its annual 'Country Report on Terrorism', as mandated by the Congress, the State Department said the Indian leadership expressed resolve to prevent terrorist attacks domestically and to bring to justice the perpetrators of terrorism, in cooperation with the US and other like-minded countries. The parts of India seriously impacted by terrorism in 2017 included Jammu and Kashmir, the northeast Indian states, and parts of central India in which Maoists remain active, it said. "India continued to experience attacks, including by Pakistan-based terrorist organisations as well as tribal and Maoist insurgents. Indian authorities blamed Pakistan for cross-border attacks in the state of Jammu and Kashmir," the report said. India, the report said, continued to apply sustained pressure to detect, disrupt and d..
