International Criminal Court calls for arrest of Congolese militia leader

29 April 2008The International Criminal Court (ICC) has called for the arrest of a militia leader accused of forcibly enlisting children as soldiers to fight in the volatile, resource-rich Ituri district in the far east of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) from July 2002 until the end of 2003. The International Criminal Court (ICC) has called for the arrest of a militia leader accused of forcibly enlisting children as soldiers to fight in the volatile, resource-rich Ituri district in the far east of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) from July 2002 until the end of 2003.The ICC’s pre-trial chamber yesterday published an arrest warrant for Bosco Ntaganda, currently alleged to be chief of staff of the militia known as the National Congress for the Defence of the People (CNDP), which has been active in Ituri and other parts of eastern DRC.The warrant was first issued in August 2006, but remained secret until prosecutors this week asked the pre-trial chamber to unseal it.Prosecutors said Mr. Ntaganda is a former associate of the militia leader Thomas Lubanga Dyilo, who in June is scheduled to become the first person to go on trial at the ICC, the world’s first permanent war crimes court.“Today, he [Mr. Ntaganda] is active in the Kivus,” prosecutors said in a statement to the media released today. “We count on all concerned States authorities and actors to contribute to his arrest and surrender him to the Court.”Mr. Ntaganda is accused of playing a central role in enlisting and conscripting children aged below 15 into the Patriotic Forces for the Liberation of the Congo (FPLC), another militia group, and of using those children in active hostilities in 2002-03.Prosecutors said Mr. Ntaganda remains at large in the Kivus and continues to be implicated in crimes committed in the DRC.“He must be arrested. Like all the other indicted criminals in Uganda and the Sudan, he must be stopped if we want to break the system of violence. For such criminals, there must be no escape. Then peace will have a chance. Then victims will have hope.”The CNDP, a political-military group under the command of Laurent Nkunda, a former general with the Congolese national forces, is one of several groups facing “credible reports,” prosecutors say, of serious crimes, “including sexual crimes of unspeakable cruelty.”Deadly violence involving militias and Government forces has continued to plague North Kivu and South Kivu provinces, which are rich in resources and border Rwanda and Uganda, despite the official end to the DRC civil war in 2003. read more

Parts of the indictment remain confidential.The four people named are Salim Jamil Ayyash, Mustafa Amine Badreddine, Hussein Hassan Oneissi and Assad Hassan Sabra.

It is based in The Hague in the Netherlands. 29 July 2011The United Nations-backed tribunal set up to try those alleged responsible for the 2005 assassination of former Lebanese prime minister Rafiq Hariri today released the identities of the four men accused of the crime. read more

Box office top 20 Guardians launches summer season

Box office top 20: ‘Guardians’ launches summer season by The Associated Press Posted May 8, 2017 3:09 pm MDT Last Updated May 8, 2017 at 4:20 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email NEW YORK, N.Y. – James Gunn’s comic, cosmic Marvel sequel “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” kicked off the summer movie season with a $146.5 million debut in North America, according to final studio figures Monday.Hollywood counts the summer season —during which about 40 per cent of its annual ticket sales are sold — as running from the first weekend of May through Labor Day.

UN human rights expert speaks out on Israeli ruling on Rachel Corrie

“This is a sad outcome, above all for the Corrie family that had initiated the case back in 2005, but also for the rule of law and the hope that an Israeli court would place limits on the violence of the state, particularly in relation to innocents and unarmed civilians in an occupied territory,” the Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in the occupied Palestinian territories, Richard Falk, said in a statement issued by the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR). Rachel Corrie, an American peace activist, was killed in March 2003 while protesting against the demolition of Palestinian homes in Rafah, a city located in southern Gaza. The details of her death are disputed, with the Corrie family accusing the Israeli Defense Force (IDF) of deliberately crushing her with a bulldozer during the demolition process. For its part, the IDF maintains that the bulldozer operator failed to see Ms. Corrie due to his restricted vision from inside the vehicles’ cockpit and that her death was entirely accidental. According to Mr. Falk’s statement, despite evidence and eyewitness testimony indicating that Rachel Corrie was in the direct line of vision of the bulldozer driver and was also wearing a bright fluorescent orange vest increasing her visibility, Judge Oded Gershon ruled that Ms. Corrie’s death was “a regrettable accident” in a territory considered by the State of Israel to be “a war zone.” “The judge’s decision represents a defeat for justice and accountability, and a victory for impunity for the Israeli military,” noted Mr. Falk, who added: “Such a shocking rationale flies directly in the face of the Geneva Conventions, which impose on an occupying power an unconditional obligation to protect the civilian population.” Mr. Falk also drew parallels between Rachel Corrie’s death and other recent incidents in which the use of Israeli force against civilian populations has caused casualties, most notably the 2008-2009 Gaza War, in which over 1,400 people were killed, and the more recent 2010 Israeli commando assault on Turkish ships filled with activists bringing humanitarian supplies to the blockaded people of Gaza. “Israeli governmental institutions have consistently embraced impunity and non-accountability in responding to well-documented violations of international humanitarian law and in many cases Israel’s own criminal law,” he said, adding that the Corrie family had been at “the partisan mercies” of the Israeli judicial system whose legal decisions were “a mockery of justice.” The Corrie family have announced their intention to appeal Judge Gershon’s verdict in the Israeli Supreme Court, Mr. Falk added. Independent experts, or special rapporteurs like Mr. Falk, are appointed by the Geneva-based Human Rights Council to examine and report back on a country situation or a specific human rights theme. They work in an independent and unpaid capacity. read more

UN condemns horrific attack that killed four UNICEF staff in Somalia

“All of us at UNICEF are deeply saddened, and deeply angered,” Anthony Lake, UNICEF Executive-Director, said in a statement to the press. At about 8:00 this morning, a suspected IED (improvised explosive device) targeted a UN vehicle in Garowe, Puntland, Somalia. A UNICEF statement said that the IED attack occurred when the staffs were travelling from their guest house to the office, normally a three-minute drive. Emergency response operations are ongoing. “The horrific attack on our UNICEF colleagues today in northern Somalia is an assault not only on them but on the people they served. Our immediate thoughts are with the families of the four staff members who were killed and with those who were injured,” Mr. Lake added. “Our colleagues dedicated their lives to working for the children of Somalia. They are not victims. They and those who were wounded are heroes. We mourn their loss and hope for the full recovery of the injured,” he said. In a statement issued by his spokesperson in New York, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon similarly voiced his outrage at the attack which, he said, would “not erode the commitment of the whole United Nations family to supporting the people and Government of Somalia in rebuilding peace and prosperity in their country.”In addition, Mr. Ban condemned in the “strongest terms” the attack against UN staff who were “working to provide humanitarian and development assistance to the people of Somalia, including the country’s children, many of whom are in desperate need.”“Such barbaric attacks will not diminish the United Nations’ resolve to continue working for the cause of peace in the country.”At the same time, the UN Security Council also deplored the “appalling” attack for which it blamed the Islamist extremist group Al Shabaab.The members reaffirmed the Council’s stance condemning terrorism “in all its forms and manifestations” as one of the most serious threats to international peace and security and branding all terrorist acts as “criminal and unjustifiable regardless of their motivation.”“This is truly a terrible, terrible day for UNICEF, and indeed for all those for whom these colleagues were working in the country,” said Edward Carwardine, Deputy Director of Communications at UNICEF in an interview with UN Radio.He said that UNICEF has been in Somalia since 1972 and its programmes are now focused particularly on areas such as water, education, child health nutrition and the protection of children. The agency, he said “is working for some of the most vulnerable children and families in that part of the country.” And despite today’s tragedy, Mr. Carwardine said, “UNICEF’s ongoing work for these most vulnerable children is our priority and we are committed to continuing that as best we can.” Earlier this morning, the UN Mission in Somalia (UNSOM) also condemned the attack calling it a “complete disregard for the lives of people working on the humanitarian and development needs of the people of Somalia is despicable.” “I am shocked and horrified by what took place today in Garowe,” Nicholas Kay, the Special Representative of the UN Secretary-General (SRSG) for Somalia and head of the UN mission (UNSOM) there said in a statement. “Our UN colleagues are saddened but unified in the face of this tragedy. The United Nations remains determined to stand by the people of Somalia. My deepest sympathies and thoughts are with the friends and families of all those who lost their lives, and those injured and affected,” Mr. Kay said. read more

Charity and acid attack survivor criticise YouTubers over fake acid attacks posted

first_imgA charity and an acid attack survivor have criticised a new wave of pranksters for faking acid attacks, filming it and putting the footage online.During these ‘fake acid attacks’, which have emerged on Instagram and most recently YouTube, the attacker squirts the victim with harmless liquid, pretending it is acid, and films their reaction.Moped thieves have also used the tactic in order to disarm victims and attempt to steal their belongings.Arya Mosallah, 22, has been criticised by an acid attack survivor after posting a video earlier this month of himself throwing liquid on passers-by, pretending it was acid.The YouTuber, who has over 600,000 subscribers to his channel, filmed the pranks in London, where acid attacks have been prevalent over the past year.Resham Khan, who was attacked with acid by a stranger while out celebrating her 21st birthday, said: “I cannot believe this is where we are at. To have a life that lacks to such a degree that for YouTube views you’d put someone through the panic and dread of an acid attack. Immature and disgusting, childish and pathetic, sad and unfortunately all too real.” A still from the offending video She addressed the prankster, asking him: “How dare you try to make light of the pain and emotional trauma that comes from acid attacks.

A spokesperon commented: “The Metropolitan Police Service has been made aware of a man carrying out stunts that may cause alarm or distress to members of the public and lead to a police response that could end as a waste of police time. Should police be called to any such incidents, consideration will be given to any possible offences committed and could lead to arrest(s).”The Met is not currently aware of any allegations being made to police and there have been no arrests.  We would advise anyone who is a victim of this man’s irresponsible behaviour to contact police.”last_img read more

Man jailed for assaulting ninemonthold girl leaving her with lifethreatening skull fracture

first_img Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article By Olivia Kelleher Man jailed for assaulting nine-month-old girl, leaving her with life-threatening skull fracture The 26-year-old man assaulted his then partner’s nine-month-old daughter. A MAN IN his twenties has been jailed for eight years for an assault on a nine-month-old girl which left her with a life-threatening fracture to the skull.The 26-year-old man assaulted his then partner’s nine-month-old daughter who sustained serious injuries in the incident.The man had gone on trial at Cork Circuit Criminal Court charged with assault causing harm to the infant at a location in Co Cork on New Year’s Eve 2016.A jury of five women and seven men took just under an hour and a half to find the man guilty of the charge.The man, who cannot be named for legal reasons to avoid identifying the child, was also found guilty on two counts of neglect of the nine-month-old girl and her then two-year-old sister on dates between 20-30 December 2016.Judge Sean O’Donnabhain said he agreed with the assessment of the DPP that the assault was at the higher end of the spectrum.The court heard that the man had been left in charge of the nine-month-old while the child’s mother took the two-year-old to a playground.The child had been somewhat unsettled on the morning in question. The mother of the child had managed to calm her down and she felt able to leave the youngster with her partner.When the mother returned she spotted that the child had an injury to her head. Her eye was displaced and there was a dent in her skull. She had incurred a serious fracture.The mother raised the alarm and the child was taken to a local hospital. She was subsequently transferred to CUH. The consultant paediatrician, Professor Jonathan Hourihane and consultant radiologist, Dr Michael Moore were both “taken aback” at the nature of the child’s injuries.‘A real risk of death’The damage was caused by a single blow to the head or the toddler’s head being held against a firm surface where it was struck at the back of its head. The skull had been fractured with fissures on both sides. The injuries were so severe as to be life-threatening that they could not be explained other than by an assault.Judge O’Donnabhain said that the doctors believed the force involved was “massive”. Doctors had found an older shoulder fracture on the nine-month-old and an elbow fracture on the two-year-old. Both injuries were in keeping with a pattern of neglect.Judge O’Donnabhain said he was concerned that the man never seemed to absorb the enormity of what he had done.“One of my big worries is that if you pass within a furlong of the medical evidence, you would have been convinced that this man was guilty, yet that never seemed to penetrate through to him,” he said.During the trial, the man had insisted that the injuries had nothing to do with him and that he had no idea how she sustained them.  The man had two previous convictions for assaults on two adults in Cork city.Judge O Donnabhain said the child ran “a real risk of death” arising out of the incident.He said that the older child now suffers from “the frozen watchfulness of a neglected child”. He said the appropriate headline sentence for the assault was ten years. However, taking the man’s youth into consideration he suspended the last two years.He also imposed two consecutive two years sentence on the neglect charges to run concurrently. He suspended both. In effect, the man will serve twelve years with the final four years suspended. The two children are now in foster care.The mother of the children previously pleaded guilty to two counts of neglect in relation to her children. She is serving a suspended sentence. Judge O’Donnabhain said that she was a “troubled” but “insightful” person.She no longer has any contact with her offspring Friday 22 Feb 2019, 5:09 PM 21,098 Views Share5 Tweet Email1 Image: Sasko Lazarov/ Feb 22nd 2019, 5:09 PM Image: Sasko Lazarov/ No Comments Short URL last_img read more

Se brosser les dents après le repas pourrait les endommager

first_imgSe brosser les dents après le repas pourrait les endommagerSelon un spécialiste américain, se brosser les dents dans les trente minutes qui suivent un repas pourraient faire plus de mal que de bien, en les fragilisant face aux attaques.  Si les dentistes ne cessent de rappeler l’importance de se brosser les dents pour conserver une bonne santé buccale et dentaire, le faire à certains moments de la journée pourrait en fait davantage les abimer que de les protéger. C’est du moins ce qu’a expliqué au New York Times le Dr Howard R. Gamble, président de l’Academy of General Dentistry et chercheur dans le domaine. Selon les études menées, se brosser les dents dans les trente minutes après avoir mangé ou bu une tasse de café aurait pour effet de fragiliser les dents face aux attaques.À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?En effet, certains aliments contiennent des substances acides qui vont s’attaquer à l’émail des dents puis à la couche située en dessous la dentine. Or, se laver les dents au “pire moment”, dans les vingt minutes qui suivent le repas, favoriserait la pénétration des acides dans les dents et leur permettrait ainsi de les corroder plus vite et plus profondément que ce dont ils seraient normalement capables. “Avec le brossage, vous pourriez en fait pousser l’acide plus profondément dans l’émail et dans la dentine”, a précisé le Dr Gamble.  Pour arriver à cette conclusion, les chercheurs ont demandé à des volontaires de porter des échantillons de dentine humaine dans leur bouche et de suivre différents régimes de brossage. Au final, ils ont ainsi constaté qu’un brossage dans les 20 minutes qui suivent la prise d’une boisson a significativement endommagé les dents alors qu’il a suffi aux personnes qui avaient mangé un plat épicé d’attendre simplement une heure pour éviter les effets négatifs des aliments sur leurs dents. “Après une période de 30 à 60 minutes, l’usure n’était pas significativement plus élevée que dans le groupe contrôle qui ne se brossait pas les dents. Ceci permet de conclure que pour protéger les surfaces de dentine, il faut attendre au moins 30 minutes avant de se brosser les dents après une attaque érosive”, estiment au final les chercheurs.

Where To Point The Finger As Mumps Cases In Texas Hit A

first_img Share Dr. Peter Hotez, dean of the National School of Tropical Medicine at Baylor College of Medicine, said many of the people with mumps in Texas probably did get vaccinated. (That’s not to say he isn’t concerned about historically low vaccinations rates in the state. He is.)Hotez said the vaccine for measles, mumps and rubella, known as MMR, is about 80 percent effective.“Of the three vaccines in that MMR vaccine, mumps is kind of the weak player,” he said.The disease is spread through coughing and sneezing, as well as sharing cups and utensils. Even if you get two doses of the vaccine, Hotez said, it barely gets you to 90 percent protection if you are exposed to mumps. So, this outbreak probably can’t be pinned to people who didn’t get vaccinated. KUT’s Ashley Lopez reportsChris Van Deusen with the Texas Department of State Health Services said the outbreak actually has more to do with geography.“They have been experiencing a really bad outbreak in Arkansas,” he said. “They have had almost 3,000 cases to this point. And we know that some of our cases – quite a few – are linked to that outbreak and people who travel back and forth.”So far the worst outbreaks have been in North Texas. The state also found a cluster of cases among people who visited South Padre Island for spring break.Van Deusen said he expects the numbers to continue to rise.Even though mumps is not something people really worry about anymore, he said, the state is asking Texans to be on the lookout for symptoms like swollen salivary glands on either side of the neck.Hotez said one of the bigger questions will be whether the state and federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention decide to implement a third mumps vaccine in some areas.“That really depends on the circumstances, and if we are seeing an outbreak in a really defined community that can be helpful,” Van Deusen said.Copyright 2017 KUT-FM.

A screengrab from the video game Kirby Star Allie

first_img A screengrab from the video game “Kirby Star Allies” is shown in a handout photo. THE CANADIAN PRESS/HO-Nintendo of America MANDATORY CREDIT The popular pink puffball returns in “Kirby Star Allies,” and he’s brought friends by Curtis Withers, The Canadian Press Posted Mar 16, 2018 7:56 am PDT Last Updated Mar 16, 2018 at 8:40 am PDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Emailcenter_img Kirby, the protean pink puffball who has charmed video gamers for over 25 years, is making his debut on the Nintendo Switch — and he’s brought some frenemies along for the journey.“Kirby Star Allies” is a side-scrolling platformer that allows up to four players to team up and battle baddies and combine powers to solve puzzles. The key mechanic introduced this time around is Kirby’s ability to turn foe into friend that becomes a member of his adventuring party, opening up a wealth of combinations for players to experiment with.The “Kirby” series, a Nintendo staple franchise going back to the Game Boy, has never been one to tax the skills of experienced gamers, and “Star Allies” is no different. But what the game lacks in difficulty it makes up for in charm, and this multiplayer romp works well as an entry-level experience for those new to video games or as a fun, low-stakes co-op adventure.The game’s plot, such as it is, sees Kirby use his unique abilities to save his home world of Dream Land from the corrupting influence of a mysterious heart-shaped rock.Seemingly alone against a host of enemies, Kirby can inhale a foe and take on its abilities. For example, devouring a fire-based fiend will give Kirby the ability to belch a stream of flame.Kirby can also turn certain enemies into allies by hitting them with heart-shaped projectiles. The fun comes in forming a party that can combine abilities. If a fire-based Kirby has a wind-based ally on his team, they can team up to send torrents of fire across the screen. Kirby also shows his chops as a championship-calibre skip, as stone-based allies can be turned into curling rocks and used to bowl over a multitude of enemies in one throw.Abilities can also be combined to solve simple puzzles, which often reveal secret rooms or collectibles. Fire abilities can be used to light fuses that destroy walls, or fire a cannon that will send Kirby and his friends flying to areas that would be otherwise impossible to reach.The game’s artificial intelligence controls Kirby’s allies in single-player mode, and does so with a reasonable degree of effectiveness. But the game is a lot more fun when other players join in and take over the other member’s of Kirby’s foursome. The action can get chaotic, but the forgiving difficulty level of “Kirby Star Allies” allows even gaming newbies to play an effective role in the adventure.However, it’s that same forgiving gameplay that makes the mixing and matching of team members feel less effective to experienced game players. While some enemies have elemental weaknesses that can be exploited, most of them are defeated so easily that it hardly seems worth the bother. Additionally, enemies don’t seem to have any elemental resistance, so while a fire-based enemy is vulnerable to water attacks, it doesn’t appear to have any advantage to fending off fire attacks.Some boss battles do have enemies with mechanics to be aware of, but for the most part they can just be beaten into submission by Kirby and his friends. There are some platforming elements, but since Kirby can remain airborne for an unlimited duration, the challenge of these segments is diluted as well.The game is over if Kirby runs out of lives, but he racks them up at a prodigious rate by collecting stars throughout the game’s levels, and loses them very infrequently. Players may be more likely to lose a life by losing track of Kirby in the chaos and having him fall off a ledge than by any sort of enemy attack.That said, Kirby games have filled a certain niche with aplomb for two-and-a-half decades, and “Star Allies” continues that streak. The high-definition visuals here are very pretty, and the character design is cute without being cloying. Kids will fall in love with Kirby and his cohorts, and all but the most curmudgeonly adults will find it difficult to resist the game’s charms.Those looking for a platforming challenge may want to wait until the famously difficult “Donkey Kong Country” makes its way to the Switch in a couple of months. But as a casual, likable adventure that can by enjoyed with friends and family, “Kirby Star Allies” does not disappoint.“Kirby Star Allies” is rated E for all ages and retails for around $80.last_img read more
