  1. Reuters journalist Wa Lone, who is based in Myanmar, is seen in this undated picture taken in Myanmar. REUTERS TOKYO/YANGON: The arrest of two Reuters journalists in Yangon this week was a signal that press freedom is shrinking in Myanmar and the international community must do all it can to get them released, UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said on Thursday. Guterres said his main concern over Myanmar was the ?dramatic violations of human rights? during a military crackdown in Rakhine State that forced more than 600,000 Rohingya Muslims to flee the country for southern Bangladesh, and the arrest of the journalists was probably related. ?It is clearly a concern in relation to the erosion of press freedom in the country,? he told a news conference in Tokyo, referring to the detention of Wa Lone and Kyaw Soe Oo, who had been working on stories about the strife in Rakhine State. ?And probably the reason why these journalists were arrested is because they were reporting on what they have seen in relation to this massive human tragedy,? he added. Myanmar?s Ministry of Information said in a statement on Wednesday that the Reuters journalists and two policemen faced charges under the British colonial-era Official Secrets Act. The 1923 law carries a maximum prison sentence of 14 years. The reporters ?illegally acquired information with the intention to share it with foreign media?, the ministry said in its statement, which was accompanied by a photo of the two reporters in handcuffs. Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh say their exodus from the mainly Buddhist nation was triggered by a military offensive in response to Rohingya militant attacks on security forces at the end of August. The United Nations has branded the military?s campaign in Rakhine State ?a textbook example of ethnic cleansing? of the minority Rohingya. Guterres said the international community should do everything possible to secure the journalists? release and freedom of the press in Myanmar. He called for aid to be delivered, violence contained and reconciliation promoted in Rakhine State, and for the Rohingyas? right of return to be fully respected and implemented. Location Unknown Britain has expressed ?grave concerns? to the government of Myanmar over the arrest of the two journalists, Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson told reporters in London on Thursday. ?We are committed to freedom of speech and people?s ability to report the facts and bring into the public domain what is happening in Rakhine state,? he said. Canada?s Minister of Foreign Affairs Chrystia Freeland tweeted that she was ?deeply concerned? by the reports about the arrests. ?Freedom of the press is essential for democracy and must be preserved,? she said. And the president of the European Parliament Antonio Tajani also called on Myanmar to protect media freedoms and release the two. Wa Lone and Kyaw Soe Oo went missing on Tuesday evening after they had been invited to meet police officials over dinner on the outskirts of Yangon. The authorities have not confirmed where the journalists are being held and, as of Thursday evening, Reuters had not been formally contacted by officials about their detention. At Htaunt Kyant police station, where the journalists were charged, family members of Wa Lone and Kyaw Soe Oo were told that the pair were being detained at another location by an investigative team. ?They are not here,? said Police Second Lieutenant Tin Htway Oo, according to Pann Ei, wife of reporter Wa Lone. ?The police investigation team took them soon after they were arrested.? He said he did not know where the journalists were, Pann Ei added, but he did tell her they would be brought back to the station in ?two to three days at most.? Reuters could not immediately reach Tin Htway Oo for comment. Police Lieutenant Colonel Myint Htwe of the Yangon Police Division told Reuters the reporters? location would not be disclosed until the investigation was complete. ?It will be known later. Please wait a while,? he said.
  2. While Indian cricketers, including the likes of Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli and others have been winning accolades for their exploits on the field, Mumbai batsman Ajinkya Rahane has been going through a rough patch with little runs to show and limited opportunities at hand. The 29-year-old, who is currently plying his trade in the ongoing three-match ODI series against Sri Lanka, has been restricted to the sidelines with Rohit and Shikhar Dhawan looked upon as first-choice openers for Team India. In the only ODI game he played against the Lankans, Rahane managed to score just five runs before struggling further in the Test series. BCCL Clearly, the times have been hard for Team India's vice-captain on the cricket field. But, recent developments suggest that the troubled times have now transcended from Rahane's cricket career into his personal life as well. To make matters worse for him, it has been reported that the Mumbai cricketer's father Madhukar Baburao Rahane has been taken into police custody on alleged charges of mowing down a 67-year-old woman in Kolhapur. Ajinkya Rahane's Father Arrested After His Car Runs Down A Woman In #Kolhapur. 67 Year Old Woman Died In Hospital. #AjinkyaRahane's Father, Mother And Sister Were On Way To #Konkan When Accident Happened. #RIP ðð®ð³ — Sir Ravindra Jadeja (@SirJadeja) December 15, 2017 According to media reports, Madhukar was driving his Hyundai i20 on National Highway No. 4 when he lost control of the vehicle in the Kagal area and accidentally hit a woman named Ashatai Kamble. The victim was taken to the nearby hospital where she later succumbed to injuries. The Kagal police station registered a case against Madhukar under section 304 A, 289, 337 and 338. Rahane's family - his father, mother and sister - was headed to Tarkarli in Konkan via the Pune-Bengaluru highway for a vacation when the unfortunate accident left them shell-shocked. Rahane is scheduled to leave for South Africa along with the Indian team for the highly-anticipated tour which includes three Tests, six ODIs and three T20Is. With a lot of pressure to perform amid immense criticism, the latest developments are bound to add to Rahane's woes.

  4. Bitcoin has been racing to record highs in recent days A suburban New York hospital technician accused of using bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies to launder money meant for the militant group Daesh was arrested on charges of money laundering in support of a foreign terrorist organization and bank fraud, prosecutors said Thursday. Federal prosecutors in New York?s Suffolk County claimed in court papers that Zoobia Shahnaz, 27, used fraudulent credit cards and loans to accumulate $85,000, which she attempted to transfer to the Daesh group before attempting to go to Syria to join it. Prosecutors said that after traveling to Jordan to work with the Syrian American Medical Society, Shahnaz returned to the United States and applied for six credit cards, which she used to buy bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. The resident of the hamlet of Brentwood in Islip on Long Island appeared before a federal judge late on Thursday and was ordered detained, prosecutors said. Shahnaz? lawyer, Steve Zissou, did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the case. After borrowing about $85,000 with fraudulently obtained credit cards and loans and withdrawing another $22,000 from bank accounts in her own name, Shahnaz sent funds to recipients in Pakistan, China and Turkey, prosecutors said. Some of that money came in the form of $63,000 in bitcoin and other crypto-currencies purchased with the credit cards, prosecutors said. Arraignment and detention documents released on Thursday showed that Shahnaz, a US citizen born in Pakistan, was arrested on Wednesday. Prosecutors said that in July Shahnaz obtained a Pakistani passport and booked a flight to Pakistan with a layover in Istanbul with the intention of going to Syria. She was stopped by law enforcement investigators at John F. Kennedy airport and questioned about her trip and the financial transactions, prosecutors said. Bitcoin fever exposes crypto-market frailties At the same time, Bitfinex, the world?s biggest bitcoin exchange by trading volume She had $9,500 in cash with her, just under the limit of $10,000 that a person can take out of the country without declaring it to immigration and customs officials, they said. Subsequent searches of Shahnaz? electronic devices showed numerous searches for Daesh-related material, including travel checklists. She faces three charges of money laundering, including money laundering in support of a foreign terrorist organization, and is also charged with bank fraud. She faces up to 20 years in prison on each of the money laundering charges and up to 30 years for the bank fraud charge.
  5. Reuters journalists Wa Lone (left) and Kyaw Soe Oo, who are based in Myanmar, pose for a picture at the Reuters office in Yangon, Myanmar December 11, 2017. Photo: Reuters 1 YANGON: Myanmar?s government said on Wednesday that police had arrested two Reuters journalists, Wa Lone and Kyaw Soe Oo. The reporters had been working on stories about a military crackdown on the Rohingya Muslim minority in Rakhine State that has caused almost 650,000 people to flee to neighbouring Bangladesh. The Ministry of Information said in a statement on its Facebook page that the journalists and two policemen face charges under the British colonial-era Official Secrets Act. The 1923 law carries a maximum prison sentence of 14 years. The reporters ?illegally acquired information with the intention to share it with foreign media,? said the statement, which was accompanied by a photo of the pair in handcuffs. It said they were detained at a police station on the outskirts of Yangon, the southeast Asian nation?s main city. Geo News reporters given death threats, forced to leave Myanmar A social media propaganda campaign had been started against Geo News reporters covering the Rohingya crisis in Myanmar Wa Lone and Kyaw Soe Oo went missing on Tuesday evening after they had been invited to meet police officials over dinner. Reuters? driver Myothant Tun dropped them off at Battalion 8?s compound at around 8pm and the two reporters and two police officers headed to a nearby restaurant.

Blatant attack The Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh say their exodus from the mainly Buddhist nation was triggered by a military counter-offensive in Rakhine state that the United Nations has branded ?a textbook example of ethnic cleansing?. ?Reuters reporters Wa Lone and Kyaw Soe Oo have been reporting on events of global importance in Myanmar, and we learned today that they have been arrested in connection with their work,? said Stephen J Adler, president and editor-in-chief of Reuters. ?We are outraged by this blatant attack on press freedom. We call for authorities to release them immediately,? he said. A spokesman for Myanmar leader Aung San Suu Kyi confirmed that the two journalists had been arrested. ?Not only your reporters, but also the policemen who were involved in that case,? spokesman Zaw Htay said. ?We will take action against those policemen and also the reporters.? In Washington, State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert emphasised that the agency was ?following this closely.? She said that US Ambassador Scot Marciel on Wednesday had a conversation with two government officials in Myanmar who seemed ?genuinely unaware? of the situation. ?We care about the safety and security of international reporters who are simply just trying to do their jobs. So we?re going to continue to try to stay on that,? Nauert said. The US embassy in Yangon said in a statement posted on its website on Wednesday it was ?deeply concerned by the highly irregular arrests of two Reuters reporters after they were invited to meet with police officials in Yangon last night?. ?For a democracy to succeed, journalists need to be able to do their jobs freely,? the embassy said. ?We urge the government to explain these arrests and allow immediate access to the journalists.? The European Union?s mission in Yangon also voiced concern. ?The EU delegation is closely following their case and we call on the Myanmar authorities to ensure the full protection of their rights,? it said in a statement. ?Media freedom is the foundation of any democracy.? The New York-based Committee to Protect Journalists called for the reporters? immediate and unconditional release. ?These arrests come amid a widening crackdown which is having a grave impact on the ability of journalists to cover a story of vital global importance,? said Shawn Crispin, CPJ?s senior Southeast Asia representative. Texted four words Wa Lone, who joined Reuters in July 2016, has covered a range of stories, including the flight of Rohingya refugees from Rakhine in 2016 and, in much larger numbers, this year. He has written about military land grabs and the killing of ruling party lawyer Ko Ni in January. This year he jointly won an honourable mention from the Society of Publishers in Asia for Reuters coverage of the Rakhine crisis in 2016. He previously worked for The Myanmar Times, where he covered Myanmar?s historic 2015 elections, and People?s Age, a local weekly newspaper, where his editor was Myanmar?s current Minister of Information Pe Myint. Kyaw Soe Oo, an ethnic Rakhine Buddhist from state capital Sittwe, has worked with Reuters since September. He has covered the impact of the Aug 25 attacks on police and army posts in the northern Rakhine, and reported from the central part of the state where local Buddhists have been enforcing segregation between Rohingya and Rakhine communities. He previously worked for Root Investigation Agency, a local news outlet focused on Rakhine issues. ?I have been arrest? were the four words that Wa Lone texted to Reuters Myanmar Bureau Chief Antoni Slodkowski on Tuesday evening to let him know what was happening. Very soon after that Wa Lone?s phone appeared to have been switched off. Over the next 24 hours, Reuters colleagues in Yangon filed a missing persons report, went to three police stations, and asked a series of government officials what had happened to the two reporters. They got no official information until Wednesday evening.

  10. Murdered journalist Sudip Datta Bhowmik/Facebook NEW DELHI: Indian police have arrested a senior army officer for the murder of a journalist shot dead while investigating allegations of financial fraud against him. Reporter Sudip Dutta Bhaumik was allegedly killed by a junior officer when he went to a paramilitary base in the northeastern state of Tripura on Tuesday to investigate a story. Police said Tapan Debbarma, the commandant of the Second Tripura State Rifles, was arrested Wednesday on charges he ordered his bodyguard to shoot the reporter. "He (Debbarma) was arrested yesterday and produced before the magistrate. He has been remanded to 10 days of police custody," local police superintendent Pradeep Dey told AFP on Thursday. "His security guard Nandu Reang was arrested on Tuesday itself." On Wednesday Bhaumik´s editor Subal Kumar Dey said the murder was linked to articles the reporter had written. He was the third journalist to be killed in as many months in India and newspapers in Tripura on Thursday carried blank editorial pages in protest. In September, a reporter in the state was lynched by a mob during clashes between police and warring political factions. His mutilated body was found the next day. Also in September gunmen shot dead renowned journalist Gauri Lankesh in the southern city of Bangalore. No arrests have been made in her killing, but some believe she was targeted for her outspoken criticism of Hindu nationalism. The Committee to Protect Journalists says 41 reporters have been killed in India since the early 1990s, a figure that excludes the two latest deaths in Tripura.
  11. Inspired by Sacha Baron Cohen's most iconic role, a group of Czech tourists dressed up in mankinis, made famous by Borat, while in Kazakhstan. The group of guys were posing for pictures in the capital city of the country where the character of Borat comes from. Sporting lime green manikis and black wigs, they were clicking pictures in front of the 'I Love Astana' sign. Reportedly, they ended up getting arrested and were fined 22,500 tenge ($67) each for their 'indecent' adventures and for committing 'minor hooliganism'. © AP But, lucky for them, Sacha Baron Cohen has himself come forward to help them out. Borat to the rescue! Bringing up the incident on his Facebook account, Cohen wrote, “To my Czech mates who were arrested. Send me your details and proof that it was you, and I'll pay your fine.” Also, don't miss the hilarious 'Czech mates' pun, please. Moreover, he went as far as creating a very specific and hilarious e-mail id just for this purpose - © Twitter Obviously, his kind gesture was well appreciated. Back in 2006, when this iconic comedy movie was released, it ran into a lot of trouble in Kazakhstan. It attracted so much controversy, that the movie was banned in the country and its following sales on DVD, with the authorities going as far as threatening to sue him. The main problem was that a lot of Kazakhs were offended by 'Borat' as it seemed to portray the country as backward and degenerate. However, the Kazakh foreign minister Yerzhan Kazykhanov publicly thanked the actor for 'boosting tourism' in the country in 2012. Kazykhanov added that after the release of the movie, the number of visas issued by Kazakhstan grew tenfold. But, that was not the only problem this movie ran into. The movie saw Borat's bizarre behaviour and dramatic stunts cause great commotion among unsuspecting Americans. He played the character so convincingly, that he actually ran into trouble with the FBI. He said, “[The FBI] got so many complaints there was a terrorist travelling in an ice cream van… that they started compiling a little file on us and eventually they came to visit us at the hotel. I obviously went missing when I heard because they were like 'FBI's downstairs'.” After being warned by the Kansas police that he'd get arrested if he carried on with his antics, he admitted to hiring someone to protect him, the crew and even his wife, Isla Fisher. Well, now you know how much trouble it actually is to make a great movie. All the controversy aside, Cohen won a Golden Globe award for his portrayal of fictional Kazakh television presenter Borat. So, it's all well if it ends well.
  12. German police on Tuesday arrested six Syrian refugees suspected of preparing a terror attack. Photo: AFP file FRANKFURT: German police on Tuesday arrested six Syrian refugees suspected of preparing a terror attack, prosecutors said.

The suspects arrived in Germany between December 2014 and September 2015 at the height of Europe?s migrant crisis.

Domestic security officials estimate there are some 10,000 radical terrorists in Germany, with roughly 1,600 among them suspected of being capable of violence.

The photograph surfaced after United States President Donald Trump stated support for the man, 32-year-old Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, who ordered the arrest drive. In the tweets Trump posted before leaving Japan for South Korea on the Asian tour, he commended the crown prince on the move. The US president also said that the ones being harshly treated are those who had ?milked? their country for years. The arrested persons are seen huddled on the floor of one of the grand function rooms which last month hosted the Future Investment conference, a gathering of world business leaders. The arrests that began late Saturday included Prince Miteb bin Abdullah, who for the past four years had led the National Guard, and Prince Adel Fakeih, who was minister of economy since April. Miteb was once considered a contender for the throne, though he has not been thought of recently as a challenger to Prince Salman. The men were reportedly arrested in a crackdown that the attorney general described as 'phase one'. Al-Waleed is accused of money laundering, bribery and extorting officials, an official told Reuters on Sunday.
  19. Scott Ostrem, 47, is pictured in this undated handout booking photo obtanied by Reuters, November 2, 2017. Thornton Police Department/Handout via Reuters1 THORNTON: Police in Colorado on Thursday captured a man who they had said calmly walked into a suburban Denver Walmart and fatally shot three people at random before driving away. Scott Ostrem, 47, was taken into custody without incident a day after the shooting following a tip from the public, the Thornton Police Department said. Police said they have yet to establish a motive for the rampage and that Ostrem had only ?a minimal criminal history?. Video broadcast from CBS affiliate KCNC-TV showed the suspect being handcuffed by police against the side of an SUV as FBI agents carrying rifles and wearing body armour looked on. KCNC-TV said police SWAT team officers had ringed his last known address in suburban Adams County on Thursday morning when Ostrem drove past and was spotted. He was followed by law enforcement and journalists, KCNC-TV reported, and was arrested in the nearby suburb of Westminster after a ?quick pursuit?. Police had earlier released a surveillance camera photograph of a middle-aged white man wearing a black jacket and blue jeans. They also published a photo of the red four-door Mitsubishi hatchback he was believed to have fled in. Ostrem ?nonchalantly? entered the store in Thornton, about 16 kilometres (10 miles) northeast of downtown Denver, and opened fire on shoppers and employees shortly after 6 PM (8 PM EDT) on Wednesday, police spokesman Victor Avila told reporters. Two men were killed in the shooting and a woman who was shot was taken to a hospital where she died, according to police. No one else was wounded. ?What we have determined is that it is random as of right now,? Avila told reporters. ?As witnesses stated, the person came in and just shot towards a group.? The Walmart had been quickly surrounded by police and fire crews. Authorities initially said ?multiple parties? had been injured. Avila said there was no indication the shooting was an act of terrorism and no one had claimed responsibility. ?We can?t rule anything out,? he said. Ostrem is due to appear on Friday morning in Adams County District Court, where he will be advised on what charges he is being held for, a court spokeswoman said. Walmart customer Aaron Stephens, 44, of Thornton, told Reuters he was buying groceries at a self-checkout stand when he heard gunshots and ricocheting bullets. ?The employees started screaming and the customers started screaming? as people began to flee, he said. ?I ran out, too, because I didn?t want to get shot.? NBC television affiliate 9NEWS reported a woman whose son was in the Walmart said he heard about 30 gunshots. Early accounts of multiple casualties had revived painful memories for the Denver area, where a gunman killed 12 people in 2012 at a midnight screening of the Batman movie The Dark Knight Rises at a theatre in the suburb of Aurora. The shooter, James Holmes, is serving a dozen consecutive life sentences without the possibility of parole. In 1999 two 12th-graders fatally shot 12 fellow students and a teacher at Columbine High School in suburban Jefferson County. The pair, Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold, then committed suicide in the campus library.
  20. [embed_video1 url= style=center] DUBAI: Hammad Siddiqui, prime accused in Baldia factory inferno case, has been arrested in Dubai, Geo News reported late Friday. The blaze, which had erupted at Ali Enterprises in Karachi's Baldia Town on September 11, 2012, had devoured lives of over 250 labourers. Dubai authorities confirmed having arrested Siddiqui late Friday. Officials have also approached the Pakistani Consulate in Dubai for Siddiqui's extradition. The accused is the former in-charge of Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) Karachi Tanzeemi Committee. Hammad Siddiqui gave orders for Baldia factory fire, confesses Bhola MQM leader ordered fire after non-payment of Rs 250 million extortion money, admits key suspect An anti-terrorism court (ATC) had last year ordered Pakistani authorities to get the accused arrested through Interpol. The Ministry of Interior, acting on the court orders, had also issued a red warrant for Siddiqui. In Dec 2016, another key accused in the Baldia factory fire case, Abdul Rahman alias Bhola, was arrested from Bangkok, Thailand, by the Interpol. The key suspect behind Pakistan's deadliest industrial fire had confessed that he deliberately set fire to Ali Enterprise on the instructions of MQM leader Hammad Siddiqui. Bhola had revealed that the MQM leader instructed him to set fire to the factory in the vicinity of Baldia Town Karachi because of non-payment of Rs250 million 'bhatta (protection money)'. He had claimed the intent behind the arson attack was only to intimidate owners of the factory, and he didn?t anticipate that his act would result in the loss of lives.
  21. ISLAMABAD: Chairman National Accountability Bureau Justice (retd) Javed Iqbal on Thursday said PPP leader Shajeel Memon was arrested in compliance with orders issued from an accountability court in Karachi. In a statement released by the accountability body, the chairman NAB said there was no injustice in Memon's arrest and added that accountability would be carried out in accordance with the law and without any discrimination. Iqbal further added that Memon's case is being heard in the court of law and the warrants for the arrest were authorised by the same court. Earlier, Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly Khursheed Shah said the arrest of Memon tarnished the image of NAB. The veteran Pakistan Peoples Party member and opposition leader, while criticising the arrest, said that those who have non-bailable arrest warrants get bail within an hour. Sharjeel Memon, others sent to jail till Nov 4 in Rs5.7bn corruption case Former Sindh information minister was arrested on Monday along with 11 other suspects after bail dismissal in Rs5.7bn corruption case On Monday, after being holed up for hours in the Sindh High Court following his bail dismissal in a corruption case. Memon was taken into custody by the NAB along with the other suspects. The former minister was escorted from the court premises by Rangers and NAB personnel and was surrounded by his lawyers and other supporters. As he was leaving the court, resistance was offered by his supporters leading to an exchange of hot words with NAB officials. Eleven other accused in the case were also arrested by the bureau. "The accused persons are charged for embezzlement of Rs. 5,766,479,766 purportedly paid to seven advertising agencies for awareness campaigns between 2013 and 2015," said a press release by NAB. Memon was attempting to avoid being arrested by NAB after the cancellation of his bail extension plea by the Sindh High court earlier on Monday. The case The suspects are accused of corruption worth Rs5.76 billion in the award of advertisements of the Sindh government?s awareness campaigns in the electronic media. Memon, who returned to Pakistan in March this year after ending his near two-year-long self-imposed exile, was arrested on his arrival by NAB but later obtained bail. The other accused in the case include bureaucrats, officials of the information department and members of private advertising agencies. Memon claims the charges against him are politically motivated.
  22. Everyone is pleasantly surprised by this year's 'Forbes Fab 40: The World's Most Valuable Sports Brands', which also features Virat Kohli at number 7 in the athletes category. Here are the top 10 most valuable athletes: 1. Roger Federer $37.2m 2. LeBron James $33.4m 3. Usain Bolt $27m 4. Cristiano Ronaldo $21.5m 5. Phil Mickelson $19.6m 6. Tiger Woods $16.6m 7. Virat Kohli $14.5m 8. Rory McIlroy $13.6m 9. Lionel Messi $13.5m 10. Stephen Curry $13.4m While everyone is talking about how the Indian captain has surpassed Argentine football legend Lionel Messi in the list of most valuable brands among athletes, let's focus on something more bizarre on the list. © Reuters Tiger Woods has secured the 6th position on the list, but that honestly doesn't seem right. The last time Tiger Woods participated in a major championship was back in 2008, that was almost a decade ago. Moreover, we've all seen what he has gone through in the last few years, everything from the infidelity scandal and divorce to getting arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. So, the question is how is his brand value still $16.6 million? Where is he getting all the money from? © Reuters He's not playing at any major championships and has to pay alimony, and obviously getting arrested would've just made everything worse. But, it's not at all surprising to see that his brand value has dropped by 27.8% in the last year. According to the list, he is the second biggest brand in Golf, just right behind Phil Mickelson, these two being the only golfers in the list. Personally, it is quite unsettling to see someone who gets paid to just hit balls and then ride around in a cart and then do it again having a brand value of over $16 million. This is kind of existential crisis inducing information, which will probably make everyone question their own lives. © Reuters So, the next time you complain about being underpaid, just think of Tiger Woods and you'll get even sadder.
