  1. KARACHI: Counter Terrorism Department on Friday arrested a suspect in connection with the deadly Sehwan suicide blast, sources informed Geo News. The suspect was arrested from a remote area of Karachi. Sindh Cheif Minister Murad Ali Shah was informed about the suspect's arrest by Inspector General A D Khawaja and Additional IG CTD. The chief minister lauded the performance of police officials in arresting the suspect. Sources privy to the development said that CTD personnel will give information about the suspect's arrest in a press conference today. At least 88 martyred in bombing at Lal Shahbaz Qalandar shrine Officials confirm over 300 have been injured in the suicide bombing inside the premises of the Sufi shrine On February 17, at least 88 people were martyred when a suicide bomber attacked the crowded Sufi shrine of Lal Shahbaz Qalandar in Sehwan, injuring up to 343 others. The powerful blast took place inside the premises of the shrine as a dhamaal was taking place. Terrorist organisation Daesh claimed responsibility for the attack. The suspect is said to be affiliated with a number of other proscribed organizations before joining Daesh.
  2. Khyber Agency: A passerby was critically wounded in a remote control blast at the main Landi Kotal Bazar on Friday. The injured has been shifted to a nearby hospital for immediate medical treatment. The identity of the injured has not yet been disclosed by the local administration. The blast took place in the car parking area of the market. As many as three cars were damaged from the blast. Local authorities along with security personnel have closed the market and cordoned off the area to start a search operation. Earlier, in Jan, an explosion took place in Sultankhel area of the city. According to the security sources, the blast occurred outside the residence of a polio worker. The personnel of Khasadar force and police reached the site soon after the explosion. Fortunately, no injuries were reported.
  3. NEW DELHI: At least 13 people including a pregnant woman were killed when an electrical transformer exploded outside a wedding ceremony in western India, police said Wednesday. Dozens of guests had assembled for the ceremony outside a family home in the western state of Rajasthan when the transformer exploded, spewing hot oil and metal shards. "Four people died on the spot," local police superintendent Rameshwar Singh told AFP. "We are ascertaining the cause of the blast." Singh said several others were being treated for severe burns after the disaster, which triggered protests against the electricity department. Locals said they had raised concerns about the maintenance of the transformer with officials, but nothing had been done. They also said a circuit-breaker failed to work after the blast, exacerbating the disaster as live wires fell onto the crowd late Tuesday in the state capital Jaipur. Transformers are part of the electricity distribution system and help maintain a uniform current. India´s power distribution system is prone to accidents, mostly because of poor maintenance and underfunding in rural areas. Nearly 10,000 people died due to electrocution in India in 2015, according to the most recent data available from the national crimes records bureau. Rajasthan chief minister Vasundhara Raje has ordered a high-level inquiry into the incident.
  4. KABUL: A loud blast shook windows and doors in an area of the Afghan capital Kabul where many foreign embassies and government departments are based, Reuters reporters heard on Tuesday. The cause of the blast and the extent of any damage was not immediately apparent.
  5. FILE PHOTO: A combination photo of Republican Senators Jeff Flake (L) of Arizona and Bob Corker of Tennessee are shown in Washington, U.S., on March 31, 2017 and October 24, 2017. Photo: Reuters1 WASHINGTON: Tensions among Republicans about President Donald Trump boiled over on Tuesday as two senators accused Trump of debasing US politics and the country?s standing abroad, a rebellion that could portend trouble for his legislative agenda. The extraordinary public criticism of the president from Jeff Flake and Bob Corker further strained what had already been a fraught relationship between Trump and fellow Republicans as they try to enact tax reform and other policy items. In an emotional speech on the Senate floor, Flake repeatedly targeted Trump?s style of governing, saying American politics had become ?inured? to ?reckless, outrageous and undignified? behavior from the White House. ?The instinct to scapegoat and belittle threatens to turn us into a fearful, backward-looking people,? said the Arizona lawmaker, who announced he would not run for re-election next year. ?I will not be complicit or silent,? Flake said. Trump, via Twitter, has been unrelenting in his criticism of Corker and Flake, accusing them of supporting Democratic priorities, and using sometimes slashing language, such as his dismissal of Corker as ?liddle Bob Corker.? By announcing he will be leaving when his term ends in early 2019, Flake effectively freed himself up to speak his mind, without having one eye on voter reactions in his home state. A Morning Consult survey conducted Sept. 24 to Oct. 24 said Flake had an approval rating in Arizona of 30 percent. Corker, who has also said he is not running for re-election in Tennessee, accused Trump of telling falsehoods that could be easily proven wrong and willfully damaging the country?s standing in the world, eviscerating the president with comments that stirred deepening divisions in the Republican Party. ?You would think he would aspire to be the president of the United States and act like a president of the United States, but that?s not going to be the case apparently,? Corker told reporters. ?I?ve seen no evolution in an upward way. In fact, I would say, he?s almost devolved.? White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders dismissed the comments from Flake and Corker and said Trump wanted senators who could make progress on his policy goals. ?He wants people to be in the Senate that are committed to actually moving the ball down the field, and I don?t think these two individuals necessarily have been as focused on that,? she told reporters. ?DISTRACTIONS? Republican congressional leaders who have learned to tread carefully amid controversies surrounding Trump, largely stayed on the sidelines of the latest fight. ?We?re going to concentrate on what our agenda is and not any of these other distractions that you all may be interested in,? Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell told reporters. Republican House of Representatives Speaker Paul Ryan played down Corker?s criticism of Trump, urging reporters to ?put this Twitter dispute aside.? Great American Pac, a pro-Trump political group, declared victory over Flake and sent out a fund-raising appeal. ?Senator Flake wisely decided to give up on his own terms rather than fight a losing battle for re-election and have the voters retire him at the ballot box next year,? said the group?s top strategist, Ed Rollins. The president is seeking to build consensus around proposed tax cuts. Republicans control both chambers of Congress, but hold just a 52-48 majority in the Senate. Securing passage of his tax-cut plan is critically important to Trump, who has yet to get major legislation through Congress since taking office in January. Trump visited the Capitol on Tuesday for a policy lunch that was described by participants as productive. Over the summer, Trump pilloried Senate Republicans - as a group and some by name - after they failed to generate sufficient votes to repeal and replace the 2010 Affordable Care Act, popularly known as Obamacare, one of his top presidential campaign promises. The dollar lost ground on news that Flake would not seek re-election because it added to investor worries about the fate of the tax plan, which has widely been seen as a potential boost to American companies. It recovered after a Bloomberg report that Trump asked senators at a closed-door lunch whom they would support to become the next Federal Reserve chairman. Bloomberg quoted one senator as saying that John Taylor, viewed in the markets as an inflation hawk, got the most votes. Trump has also provoked the ire of another respected senior Republican, Senator John McCain, whose war record he mocked during last year?s campaign. Last week, former Republican President George W Bush, who has kept a low profile since leaving office in January 2009, took a thinly veiled swipe at Trump in a speech in which he decried ?bullying and prejudice? and denounced anti-immigrant sentiment.
  6. NEW DELHI: An explosion at an illegal firecracker factory in eastern India killed seven workers and injured nine others in the hours before Thursday's Diwali festival, officials said. Firework use hits a peak across India during the Hindu festival but New Delhi authorities have tried to restrict sales to tackle mounting pollution. The explosion late Wednesday completely destroyed the makeshift structure after fire touched off the gunpowder and chemical stocks used to make the fireworks in Balasore district of Odisha state, said district magistrate Pramod Kumar Das. He told AFP several of the injured workers are in a critical condition after the "huge" explosion. Diwali, the festival of lights, is traditionally celebrated by lighting lamps but has metamorphosed into a grand show of fireworks, sparking pollution and controversy. Explosions often occur in the thousands of illegal backyard and underground workshops that spring up during the festive season. Last month, nine people were killed in neighbouring Jharkhand state after their workshop was gutted by fire. India's firecracker industry, worth nearly one billion dollars a year, is the second largest in the world after China. The country's Supreme Court this month temporarily banned the sale of firecrackers in New Delhi because of the air pollution threat. The ruling came after the capital last year suffered its worst air pollution in nearly two decades, which experts blamed on Diwali fireworks and stubble-burning in farming regions around the city. Police have arrested more than two dozen people in New Delhi over the illegal sale of firecrackers since the October 9 court order and have seized more than one tonne of firecrackers.
  7. MASTUNG: At least eight people have been injured in a blast in Mastung, Geo News learnt Thursday evening. The explosion occurred in main market of Mastung, Balochistan.

  8. KARACHI: The Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) is all set to hold a rally in Hyderabad today to mark the blast in Karachi?s Karsaz area in a party rally on October 18 in 2007. Preparations and security plan for the rally, to be held near the Hyderabad bypass, have been completed. Forty-thousand seats have been placed in the venue for thousands of supporters and workers expected to pay tribute to the 177 martyrs of the blast. Strict security measures have been taken and 5,000 police personnel have been deployed in and around the venue. The bombing on 18 October, 2007 was an attack on the motorcade carrying former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto. The streets of Karachi had come to a grinding halt to welcome Benazir Bhutto, after an eight-year self-imposed exile during which she lived in Dubai and London. Two explosions occurred in front of the rallying bullet-proof truck from which she greeted her fans and party members at approximately 00:52 PST, on the route about halfway from the airport to the tomb of Muhammad Ali Jinnah for a scheduled rally, just after Bhutto's truck had crossed a bridge near Karsaz. Victims of Karsaz tragedy remembered ISLAMABAD: Special dua was offered here at Aiwan-e-Sadr on Thursday on the occasion of 5th anniversary of Karsaz incident for the victims of Karsaz tragedy, the martyrs of democracy and all those... Police vehicles bore the brunt of the blasts, which completely destroyed three police vans and killed at least 20 policemen in the vehicles. Conflicting reports indicate that Bhutto, who was not injured in the attack, was either sitting on top of the truck or had just climbed into the compartment of the truck at the time of the explosion. Bhutto was escorted to her residence, Bilawal House. The victims were rushed to Jinnah Hospital, Liaquat National Hospital, Civil Hospital and Abbasi Shaheed Hospital. In a press conference on 19 October 2007, Bhutto claimed that her security team was unable to prevent the attack because of the street lights being turned off, and called for an inquiry into why this happened.
  9. ISTANBUL: An explosion in a storage tank at a Tupras refinery in the western Turkish province of Izmir on Wednesday killed four people but had no impact on production, the company said.

  10. Fatehpur shrine. Photo: Geo News QUETTA: The death toll of Thursday's suicide blast at a shrine in Jhal Magsi, Balochistan, has risen to 21. Officials said on Friday that an under-treatment victim, Nisar Shah, passed away at the Chandka hospital in Larkana. A spokesperson for the police said investigations are under way and police have collected evidence from the site of the blast. He said the bravery of police officials and security guards at the site ensured that the suicide bomber could not harm the people who had amassed inside. The police constable who stopped the bomber at the shrine's entrance was identified as Bahar Khan. Police constable Bahar Khan sacrificed his life and saved many lives. Photo: Geo News The US State Department has also condemned the incident and expressed well wishes for the recovery of those injured. At least 20 people were reported dead and 33 injured in a suicide blast at the Fatehpur shrine Thursday evening. "A suicide bomber blew himself up after he was intercepted by police guards on duty outside the shrine, killing 18 people including three children under the age of 12 and two policemen, and wounding at least 27 others, 14 of them seriously," said Balochistan Home Secretary Akbar Harifal. Harifal added the seriously injured patients from the blast were being airlifted to Sindh in the absence of adequate medical facilities in Balochistan. At least 20 dead in suicide blast at Jhal Magsi shrine Blast took place at Fatehpur Dargah in Jhal Magsi district, police said "A suicide bomber blew himself up after he was intercepted by police guards on duty outside the shrine," said Deputy Commissioner Asadullah Kakar. "The suicide bomber struck outside the shrine at a time when it was packed with people, attending anniversary celebrations of Syed Cheesal Shah," Kakar added. He also confirmed that one police constable was killed while attempting to stop the suicide bomber from entering the shrine. The injured were transferred to DHQ hospital for treatment with the local administration declaring an emergency at hospitals in Sibbi and Dera Murad Jamali. Balochistan Home Minister Sarfraz Bugti added that he had instructed relevant authorities to respond immediately to the incident. Security forces reached the spot and cordoned the area after the incident.
  11. Rashid Khan poses for photographs with Afghan fans at Lord?s/Action Images via Reuters KABUL: Such is Rashid Khan´s popularity that even a suicide blast at Kabul´s main cricket stadium couldn´t keep his fans away -- and the teenager is now eyeing the sport´s big prizes as his international profile grows. The 19-year-old leg spinner started playing with a tennis ball in the remote and poor province of Nangarhar, but he has now starred in the Indian Premier League and will soon make his debut in Australia´s Big Bash League. At last month´s Shpageeza Cricket League, Afghanistan´s Twenty20 domestic tournament, he became the youngest player to take 100 T20 wickets as he helped the Band-e-Amir Dragons to victory. Khan´s success has helped elevate cricket´s profile in Afghanistan, where most players were introduced to the sport in refugee camps in Pakistan after fleeing the 1979-1989 Soviet occupation. Even after a suicide bomber blew himself up within metres of the Kabul stadium, killing three people, Khan´s fans continued to flock to watch him play. An Afghan cricket fan waves the Afghan national flag as his back has the name of Rashid Khan painted on it during the Shpageeza Cricket League T20 tournament at the Kabul International Cricket ground/AFP They waved the Afghan national flag and chanted songs for Khan, some showing their devotion by painting his name on their bodies. "I play cricket to bring victories for my country and to make Afghanistan proud on the world stage," Khan told AFP in an interview in Kabul. This year, Khan became the first Afghan to play in the lucrative IPL, and he will also be the first from his country in the Big Bash League when he turns out for the Adelaide Strikers in December. Afridi devotee Adelaide Strikers coach Jason Gillespie hailed Rashid´s signing as a "major coup" when it was announced last month. "Rashid has set the world alight in T20 cricket with his energy, enthusiasm, and great control for a young guy," Gillespie said. "He has some great variations, can bowl stump-to-stump and can be very hard to pick." Khan was born during the Taliban´s 1996-2001 rule, when sport was considered a distraction from religious studies. He learned cricket by studying the techniques of Indian batting great Sachin Tendulkar and Pakistan all-rounder Shahid Afridi on television, and then practising outside in the dirt with his brothers using a tennis ball. Rashid Khan attempts to run out MCC's Shivnarine Chanderpaul at Lord?s in July this year/Action Images via Reuters Khan, one of 12 children, began his professional career in Afghanistan´s domestic league where his deceptive bowling technique soon caught the attention of national selectors. At 17, he made his international debut against Zimbabwe. Since then Khan has been on a rollercoaster ride, taking 63 wickets in 29 one-day internationals, including the fourth best figures in one-day history -- seven for 18 against the West Indies in June. He is also the first bowler to take a hat-trick in the T20 Caribbean Premier League, when playing for the Guyana Amazon Warriors. "Now I want to play against the world´s best and to challenge the best teams on their home turf," said Khan. Khan´s ascension to cricket poster boy in Afghanistan has coincided with the sport´s stunning revival in the country. Afghanistan was catapulted into the elite club of Test nations in June and made its landmark debut at Lord´s the following month. Top six "I want to bring Afghanistan the cricket World Cup -- this is the ultimate goal of my life," said Khan, a comment that may not be as far-fetched as it sounds. Former England captain Adam Hollioake, who coached one of the six teams in Afghanistan´s domestic T20 tournament last month, believes the country "could be top six in the world" within a decade. "I really believe the talent and passion is here in this country," Hollioake told AFP. Afghanistan Cricket Board chief executive Shafiqullah Stanekzai told AFP he was optimistic about the sport´s future in the country. Cricket is going "from strength to strength" and there are plans to build five international-standard stadiums over the next three years, he said. "We need five stadiums with capacity of between 15,000 and 30,000 as it is obvious that cricket is the number one sport and we have so many people coming to the grounds even in our domestic games," he said. As the Taliban insurgency marks its 16th anniversary, ethnic divisions deepen and civilian casualties rise, cricket could serve a greater purpose than just entertainment, said Khan. "I believe the game of cricket... is a binding force and brings many ethnic groups together and can restore peace and stability to Afghanistan," he said.

  15. SITTWE: Twenty homes caught fire and a bomb was detonated near a mosque in Myanmar´s Rakhine state, the government said Friday, the latest unrest in a region that has seen hundreds of thousands of Rohinyga Muslims flee in under a month. The violence comes days after Myanmar's civilian leader Aung San Suu Kyi declared that the military had ceased its "clearance operations" in the border area. The army claims it is trying to flush out Rohingya militants who attacked police posts on August 25. But civilian refugees streaming into Bangladesh say they were terrorised by soldiers and vigilante Buddhist mobs who torched their villages to the ground. The testimony, alongside satellite images of some 200 villages reduced to ash, has fuelled accusations that Myanmar's army is systematically purging a Muslim minority haunted by years of persecution. The UN has described the military campaign as "ethnic cleansing". The latest violence saw 20 homes catch fire in Maungdaw´s Kyain Chaung village on Thursday night, according to a statement posted by the government´s Information Committee. "Security members went and checked the fire and are investigating its cause," said the statement, adding that the flames burned through a community previously hit by fire. The following morning a bomb detonated outside of a mosque in Mi Chaung Zay village in nearby Buthidaung township, according to the government. The statement said "terrorists" were to blame for the blast, without specifying if they were linked to the Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army (ARSA) - the Rohingya militant group behind the ambushes on police posts. No deaths or injuries were reported in either incident. Myanmar's government admits that scores of villages have been burned down over the past month. But it has previously accused Rohingya militants of setting the fires and driving the communal violence that has also displaced some 30,000 Buddhists and Hindus. Those refugees have largely fled south, with some cramming into temples and even a derelict football stadium outside the state capital of Sittwe. The government has blocked independent media access to the conflict zone in northern Rakhine, making it difficult to verify the swirl of claims and counterclaims that have amplified Myanmar's already bitter ethnic divides. Suu Kyi, who lacks control over the army in a delicate power-sharing agreement, broke her silence on the crisis Tuesday in a televised address pitched to an international community baffled by her failure to speak up for the Rohingya. The Muslim minority is denied citizenship by the state and has been the target of festering Islamaophobia in mainly Buddhist Myanmar for years. The Nobel laureate expressed sympathy for the "suffering of all people" swept up in the violence. But she also tried to paint a glass-half-full picture of the situation in Rakhine, announcing that "more than 50 percent of the villages of Muslims are intact." She said armed clashes and clearance operations had ceased since September 5th, even though AFP reporters have seen homes on fire in the weeks since.
  16. SRINAGAR: In occupied Kashmir, three civilians including a woman, Pinki were killed and thirty others were injured in a blast in Tral town, today.

Indian troops and police personnel have cordoned off the area and launched a massive siege and search operation. Soon after the incident, people took to the streets and staged massive anti-India demonstrations. The protesters said that the civilians were killed in the firing of Indian troops. Meanwhile, Indian forces? personnel also launched door-to-door searches in Banihal town after the killing of an Indian soldier and injuring of several others including an officer in an attack near Jawahar tunnel in Banihal, last night.

  22. Sliding into someone's DMs almost never works, and if try to ever do that with Mia Khalifa, just be ready to get trolled by her. Chicago Cubs catcher Wilson Contreras tried to slyly strike up a conversation with her, and it completely backfired for him. But, it seems like he was way too dedicated to get her attention, that he relentlessly kept sending her messages, even after not getting any reply from her ever. © NBC Chicago “Hi, how are you?” Wilson wrote. “I'm sure you get this a lot but I'm big fan of you. It will be great if you say hi.” After a point, Mia was so fed up with him, that she just responded with a simple “bye”, hoping he would stop. But, no, Wilson, for some reason, still wasn't discouraged and continued sending her messages. So, Mia was done with him, and decided to try another way to get him to stop. Cubbies, your man's is wandering around left field. Can you come get him? @Cubs — Mia Khalifa (@miakhalifa) September 5, 2017 She put him on blast on Twitter by posting screenshots of the conversation, with the caption, “Cubbies, your man's is wandering around in left field. Can you come get him?” Well, it was then time for Wilson's agency to do some damage control and said that the catcher's account was “hacked” when the messages were sent. True or not, Wilson is still getting trolled on social media for the whole thing. © Twitter But, it's okay Wilson, you're not alone. Mia also previously called out Drake for doing exactly the same thing. Back in 2015, during an interview, Mia revealed that a celebrity whose name rhymes with “rake” hit her up on Instagram. “His intentions were obviously clear,” she giggled. “It was so cringeworthy. The whole thing was cringeworthy.” Warning: Trespassers in my DM's will be shot and hung out to dry in public. — Mia Khalifa (@miakhalifa) July 12, 2015 About 6 months after that, she slammed NFL star Duke Williams, as well.

A car belonging to the Catalan Mossos d'Esquadra is parked next to a house, which was razed by an explosion when suspected radicals used gas canisters shortly before midnight on Wednesday in Alcanar, Barcelona, Spain, August 18, 2017. REUTERS/Andres Gonzalez ALCANAR: It looks like the site of an earthquake - a heap of rubble and tangled wreckage that marks the spot where a two-storey home was destroyed by a massive gas explosion just before midnight on Wednesday. Spanish police said they initially thought the blast in the small coastal town of Alcanar, which killed at least one person and injured seven, was connected to a clandestine drugs laboratory. Now they are linking it to the deadly attack that took place less than 24 hours later, when a white van swerved at speed down Barcelona's most famous boulevard and mowed down people at random, killing 13. Josep Lluis Trapero, police chief for the region of Catalonia, said on Friday that investigators believed the authors of the van attack had originally planned to trigger a bomb using gas canisters, of which about 20 were discovered in the ruins of the collapsed building. The people there were 'manipulating' the propane and butane canisters at the time of the accidental explosion, he said. This had forced the conspirators to scale down their plans and to hurriedly carry out more "rudimentary" attacks in Barcelona and the resort of Cambrils, where a group of men drove a car at pedestrians and police before being shot dead. One woman was killed in the Cambrils incident. "The Alcanar blast triggered the attacks? It's not what they had in mind initially," Trapero said. "Our hypothesis is that an attack was being prepared for some time from this Alcanar house," he added. "The blast has prevented a larger bombing from happening." Unknown neighbours It is still unclear who lived in the two-storey foreclosed house in the small Montecarlo neighbourhood, a rundown area between a cement factory and the sea. After thriving during Spain's boom years before the financial crash, it is now occupied mostly in summer, by just a handful of tourists and locals. Neighbors told Reuters the place had been illegally occupied for months but nobody had ever seen any of those who lived there. "A friend of mine owns the house on the other side of the street but we've never seen anything," said Marc Esteban Carmona, a 22-year-old university student. "Initially we were joking about it. OK, a drug laboratory exploded, but that's it. But now I'm a bit more freaked out." At least two men were in the house when it was wiped out by the blast on Wednesday night and at least one was killed by the explosion, the police said. They said they found biological traces that could be from a second body, though it was too early to confirm. A man who survived the blast is now under arrest in the city of Tortosa after being treated for his injuries at the local hospital. His identity was not revealed. According to local emergency services, the seven injured people were four French, an Italian, a Moroccan and a Spaniard. Nuria Gil, a 50-year-old entrepreneur who lives in Montecarlo all year long, said she was aware the house had been occupied for several months but was not sure whether it was by the same people or by different groups. "I never bumped into anybody (?) It's a very quiet area. I thought I lived in paradise," she said.
