  1. KARACHI: Pakistan has arrested at least 25 Indian fishermen for allegedly fishing illegally in its waters, officials said on Wednesday. The Maritime Security Agency (MSA) made the arrests during the last four days, impounding four wooden boats, a security official told AFP on condition of anonymity because he is not authorised to speak to the media. He added "the arrested fishermen have already been handed over to police, who will produce them in a court on Thursday". Senior local police official Adeel Chandio confirmed the arrests. Indian and Pakistani fishermen are frequently detained for illegal fishing since the Arabian Sea border is not clearly defined and many boats lack the technology to fix their precise location The fishermen often languish in jail, even after serving their terms, as poor diplomatic ties between the two neighbours mean fulfilling bureaucratic requirements can take a long time. Pakistan released 78 Indian fishermen held for trespassing into its territorial waters in July this year.
  2. File Photo KARACHI: Eight suspects were arrested and eight others ? alleged to be involved in criminal activities ? taken into custody following search operations conducted Saturday night in various parts of the country, police sources and officials said. Three suspects were arrested last night during a raid in Orangi Town's Mominabad area, law enforcement agencies said. On the other hand, two dacoits were taken into custody Saturday night following an operation carried out in Samanabad, police stated, adding that weapons were recovered from the arrestees. Police also recovered 2.5 kilograms of contraband during a raid in the metropolis' Manghopir area that led to the arrest of two suspects. Firing incident One person was left injured Saturday night during a firing incident that took place in SITE area, rescue sources disclosed. It remains unknown whether this incident was related to personal dispute or was a random act. Vehari operation Security agencies carried out search operations in various parts of the city here on Saturday, officials said, adding that eight people ? suspected of involvement in criminal activities ? have been taken into custody for questioning. It was not revealed as to whether a case was filed against any of the detainees.
  3. Venezuelan prisons are said to be overpopulated and inmates are malnourished. Photo: AFP CARACAS: An Italian, a Swiss and a Venezuelan journalist have been arrested as they prepared a report on a prison in northern Venezuela, human rights and press freedom groups said. Roberto Di Matteo of Italy, Filippo Rossi of Switzerland and Jesus Medina of Venezuela were arrested Friday after entering Tocoron prison in northern Aragua state with a television crew, according to the rights group Foro Penal. The national journalists union said the trio were conducting a "media investigation" when they were arrested. Critics say Venezuelan prisons are overpopulated and inmates are malnourished, despite government plans to reduce inmate populations. The Swiss foreign ministry said the Swiss embassy in Caracas "is in contact with the appropriate authorities and is assisting this Swiss national in accordance with the consular protections afforded him." The Italian foreign ministry said its mission "has been following from the very beginning the arrest of Italian national Roberto Di Matteo, and is in close contact with local authorities." Di Matteo works as a videographer for Italian daily newspaper Il Giornale, regularly collaborating with independent journalist Rossi, the publication said on its website. Rossi had also worked with regional Swiss daily Corriere del Ticino, while Medina is a photojournalist for anti-government website DolarToday. The union released a photograph of the three journalists taken from the back, apparently handcuffed and escorted by two military personnel. Their cellphones and small cameras were confiscated. Union representatives told AFP the journalists were in good health late Saturday. "They are doing well and show no signs of mistreatment," according to the SNTP union. "They had an invitation to enter Tocoron. They had registered to enter when they were barred access and then arrested. It seems there was a counter-order to bar them access." Foro Penal director Alfredo Romero said some of his group's lawyers had travelled to provide legal aid to the trio, who are being held by national police. Late last year, rights group Una Ventana a La Libertad estimated that there are some 88,000 inmates across a country with an official prison capacity of 35,000. President Nicolas Maduro's government, which says it is being unfairly disparaged in national and international media, says it has successfully applied measures to pacify prisons and raise their standards to international norms.
  4. Illegal migrants arrive by boat at a naval base after they were rescued by Libyan coastguard in the coastal city of Tripoli, Libya, May 10, 2017. REUTERS/Ismail Zitouny/Files SABRATHA: A force allied with Libya's unity government in the people-smuggling hub of Sabratha has detained more than 3,000 migrants, a security official said on Saturday. "We arrested 3,150 illegal immigrants of different Asian, Arab, and African nationalities," the force's commander Bassem Ghrabli said. His force said Friday it had driven a rival militia ? led by the head of a former people smuggling network ? out of the city after three weeks of fighting. The clashes left 39 people dead and 300 wounded, according to the unity government's health ministry. The fighting also damaged schools, hospitals and UNESCO-listed archaeological treasures in Sabratha, 70 kilometres (45 miles) west of Tripoli. Following the ouster and killing of long-time dictator Moamer Kadhafi in a NATO-backed 2011 revolution, the city became a major hub for clandestine migrants seeking a chance to head to Europe. Taking advantage of a security vacuum, some local smugglers controlled whole sections of the city and even built their own landing piers, equipped to launch dozens of migrant boats a day. The Government of National Accord has struggled to impose its authority in a country where dozens of militias hold sway and a rival government backed by military strongman Khalifa Haftar controls much of the east.
  5. People walk past a protective board outside Buckingham Palace in London, Britain, September 14, 2017. REUTERS/Hannah McKay LONDON: British police said they had arrested a woman who was trying to scale the front gates of Queen Elizabeth?s Buckingham Palace home in central London on Saturday, saying the incident was not terrorism-related. ?The woman, believed to be in her 30s, was quickly detained by officers before she gained access to the palace grounds,? police said. She was arrested on suspicion of trespass and is being questioned at a central London police station. ?The incident is not being treated as terrorist-related,? police said. British police are on high alert after five attacks blamed on terrorism this year. In August, a man wielding a sword outside the palace was charged under terrorism laws. Three police officers suffered minor injuries detaining him. There have been a number of other incidents in recent years in which people have tried to get into the palace grounds. Last October, a 21-year-old man was arrested after scaling a gate of the palace. He was later detained under a hospital order. In May 2016, a man with a conviction for murder climbed over the wall and walked for about 10 minutes around the grounds of the palace before being arrested. He was jailed for four months. Four years ago, a man armed with a knife tried to enter through a gate and was later jailed for 16 months. A month earlier, two men were arrested following a break-in at the palace. One of the biggest security breaches at Buckingham Palace happened in 1982 when Michael Fagan ? an intruder ? climbed a wall and wandered into a room where the queen was in bed.
  6. The alleged assault reportedly took place on the tour bus hours after Nelly had performed at the White River Amphitheater just east of Auburn. Photo: Reuters LOS ANGELES: Grammy Award-winning rapper Nelly was arrested Saturday after a woman accused him of raping her in his tour bus, police in the northwestern state of Washington said.

After police investigated the incident, "at 4:37 AM Nelly was taken into custody and booked" at the local jail, the police statement read. The alleged assault reportedly took place on the tour bus hours after Nelly had performed at the White River Amphitheater just east of Auburn. A lawyer for Nelly vehemently denied the charges. Nelly ? born Cornell Haynes Jr. ? "is the victim of a completely fabricated allegation," the unnamed lawyer told the TMZ celebrity news site. The allegation "is motivated by greed and vindictiveness," the lawyer said, adding that Nelly "is prepared to pursue all legal avenues to redress any damage caused." According to TMZ, Nelly, whose schedule has him performing Saturday evening with country duo Florida Georgia Line in the city of Ridgefield, a two-hour drive to the south of Auburn, was booked on a charge of second-degree rape. Throughout his career, Nelly has received 12 Grammy nominations and won three Grammy awards, including for best rap solo performance in 2003.
  7. The crashed car in South Kensington. -AFP LONDON: Police arrested a man near London's Natural History Museum on Saturday after a vehicle apparently drove into pedestrians, injuring a number of people. Crowds in the busy tourist spot in South Kensington, which is also home to the Victoria & Albert Museum and the Science Museum, fled screaming in panic, an AFP reporter said. Armed police were at the scene, and a video posted on Twitter showed a man being held down on the road next to a black car that appeared to have crashed. Security is high in Britain after five terror attacks in six months - four of them in London and one in Manchester - with the bloodshed claiming 35 lives. London's Metropolitan Police said they were called to the scene at 2:21 pm (1321 GMT) after reports of a collision. "It is believed that a number of pedestrians have been injured. A man (no further details) has been arrested at the scene," the police said in a statement. "Enquiries to establish the circumstances and motive are under way." A spokesman for the museum told AFP: "I can confirm that there has been a vehicle collision with pedestrians on our Exhibition Road entrance." One witness, who gave his name only as Leonard, told AFP: "I was near South Ken station and there were many police. "Suddenly a policewoman officer shouted at the crowd to run, and everybody flew in panic, many people screaming."

  10. The crime spree began Saturday evening outside a football stadium in the city of Edmonton. Photo: AFP file MONTREAL: Canadian police arrested a man early Sunday suspected of stabbing an officer and injuring four pedestrians in a series of violent incidents being investigated as an "act of terrorism." The crime spree began Saturday evening outside a football stadium in the city of Edmonton and ended hours later with a high-speed chase in which the driver of a rented truck ploughed into pedestrians, police said. "Currently, we believe this is an individual who acted alone, although the investigation is in its early stages," Edmonton police chief Rod Knecht said. Based on the actions and the evidence at the scene, the incidents were being investigated as "acts of terrorism," police said in a statement. At approximately, 8:15pm a man in a speeding white Chevy Malibu crashed through police barricades outside an Edmonton stadium where a Canadian Football League game was being played.

"A male, believed to be 30 years of age, then jumped out of his vehicle and began viciously stabbing the officer with a knife, as a struggle ensued," the police statement said. The suspect then fled on foot and the police officer was rushed to a hospital. Just before midnight, police pulled over a rental U-Haul truck and noticed that the name on the driver´s license was similar to that of the white Malibu. The man in the truck then took off toward downtown Edmonton, according to the police account. "During the chase, the U-Haul truck deliberately attempted to hit pedestrians in crosswalks and alleys," it said. "Currently, it is believed four pedestrians were struck by the truck and transported to a hospital with multiple injuries," it said.

  17. SINGAPORE: Police in Singapore have arrested a man suspected of planning to join Daesh-linked fighters in the Philippines and a woman who was in contact with foreign militants, the government said on Thursday. Singapore, regarded as the most stable country in Southeast Asia, has become increasingly concerned about the risks of radicalization among its Muslim minority. At least 14 radicalized Singaporeans have been put under restriction or detention orders under a tough internal security law since 2015, up sharply from 11 cases between 2007 and 2014, the government said in June. The man arrested was identified as Imran Kassim, 34. The Ministry of Home Affairs said he had tried to make his way to Syria to join Daesh fighters at least twice, and had been prepared to attack members of the Singaporean armed forces. More recently, he had intended to join militants who seized control of Marawi City in Philippines this year, the ministry said in a press release. Imran?s arrest came as a result of information given to police by ?people close to him?. Authorities have mounted a campaign to encourage family members, friends and neighbors to report on anyone they fear was in danger of becoming radicalized. The woman who was arrested was identified as Shakirah Begam binte Abdul Wahab, a 23-year old administrative assistant. The ministry said she had been in contact with several foreign fighters since 2013. ?Shakirah has demonstrated a propensity to engage in risky behavior which renders her vulnerable to adverse influence and recruitment by terrorists who belong to a group that poses a security threat to Singapore?, the ministry said. She was put under a restriction order, which means suspects are monitored and their movements are restricted. A child care worker arrested in June is the only Singaporean woman to have been placed in custody under the Internal Security Act, which allows for detention without trial. An auxiliary policeman who was suspected of becoming radicalized was also arrested in June.
  18. Sindh Cheif Minister Murad Ali Shah while speaking with the press on Sep 6. Photo: Geo News KARACHI: Sindh Cheif Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah disclosed on Wednesday that three groups involved in attacks on police personnel in the metropolis have been arrested yesterday night. Speaking to the press, Shah said, "last night we have arrested the three-four gangs involved in police killings. Together with the institutions and people of Pakistan we will defeat the terrorists." Meanwhile, security forces arrested Sheheryar, the head of Ansarul Shariah in Pakistan from Kaneez Fatima society on Monday night, sources told Geo News on Tuesday, in the latest breakthrough against the terrorist organisations linked to recent attacks in the city. Sources said the Ansar ul Shariah chief went by the alias Dr Abdullah Hashmi. According to sources, Sheheryar aka Abdullah Hashmi, worked as an IT (Information technology) expert and was employed in computer department of NED University. He received his Master?s degree in Applied Physics from the University of Karachi. A high-level security source confirmed the arrest, claiming that more than six suspected terrorists were arrested in an intelligence-based operation (IBO) conducted by security forces and intelligence agencies in Karachi on Monday night. Those arrested are said to be previously affiliated with Daesh, Lashkar-e-Jhangvi (LeJ) and al-Qaeda. Sources further added that one of the arrested individual was a graduate of a British university and the group comprised of highly educated militants. The organisation had between 10 to 12 militants within its ranks, sources further added.
  19. LONDON: Some of the four alleged members of a banned British neo-Nazi group arrested on Tuesday for terror offences are serving soldiers, Britain´s defence ministry said. National Action became the first far-right group to be outlawed by the government in December last year, six months after the assassination of lawmaker Jo Cox by a far-right sympathiser. The four suspects are being held "on suspicion of being concerned in the commission, preparation and instigation of acts of terrorism," British police said in a statement. Authorities did not name the four but said they were aged between 22 and 32 and came from Birmingham, Ipswich and Northampton in England and Powys in Wales. "The arrests were pre-planned and intelligence-led; there was no threat to the public´s safety," the statement said, adding that raids were also being carried out on "a number of properties". The ministry of defence later said that some of the suspects were serving soldiers, but did not reveal how many. "We can confirm that a number of serving members of the Army have been arrested under the Terrorism Act for being associated with a proscribed far right group," it said in a statement. "These arrests are the consequence of a Home Office Police Force led operation supported by the Army," it added. Cox, an MP from the main opposition Labour party, was shot and stabbed to death in her constituency by far-right nationalist Thomas Mair in June 2016. Mair shouted "Britain first!" as he killed her. National Action, which had praised Mair´s actions, was banned in December of the same year. At the time, Interior Minister Amber Rudd branded the organisation as "racist, anti-Semitic and homophobic". In June this year, van driver Darren Osborne allegedly mowed down Muslim worshippers near a London mosque, leaving one person dead. Prosecutors said Osborne was "motivated by extreme political views and a personal hatred of Muslims". He is currently in custody awaiting trial.

  23. SAN FRANCISCO: US authorities on Thursday accused a Chinese national visiting the United States of providing malware that has been linked to the theft of security clearance records of millions of American government employees. Yu Pingan of Shanghai was arrested on Monday at Los Angeles International Airport after a federal criminal complaint accused him of conspiring with others wielding malicious software known as Sakula, a Justice Department spokesman said on Thursday. The complaint said the group attacked a series of unnamed US companies using Sakula, the same rare program involved in US Office of Personnel Management (OPM) hacks detected in 2014 and 2015. The filing did not mention the OPM hacks. The arrest could provide information on the OPM hacks which U.S. officials have blamed on the Chinese government. In an FBI affidavit linked to the complaint, an FBI agent said he believed Yu provided versions of Sakula to two unnamed men that he knew would be used to carry out attacks on the firms. Yu?s court-appointed attorney, Michael Berg, said Yu was a teacher with no affiliation with China?s government. ?He says he has no involvement in this whatsoever,? Berg said, adding that Yu came to Los Angeles for a conference. The Justice Department and San Diego FBI declined to comment further. The court filings said Sakula had rarely been seen before the attacks on U.S. companies and Yu knew the software he was providing would be used in the hacks carried out between 2010 and 2015. Though the victims are not named, some companies appeared to be in the aerospace and energy industries. Adam Meyers, vice president at US security firm CrowdStrike, said software flaws and one of the internet protocol addresses cited in the complaint matched up with attacks on a US turbine manufacturer, Capstone Turbine, and a French aircraft supplier. Meyers said Sakula could be used by multiple groups, but that all of the known targets would be of interest to the Chinese government. The OPM breach was a subject of US-China talks, and the Chinese government previously told American diplomats it had arrested some criminals in the case. Yu remains in jail pending a court hearing on his detention next week.
