  3. BEIRUT: An explosion at a guesthouse near the Fatima Masumeh shrine in the Iranian city of Qom on Thursday left four dead and 15 wounded, most of them Iraqi pilgrims, according to the semi-official Mehr news agency. The explosion was caused by a pilgrim mishandling a leaking cooking gas canister, Mehr said, citing local witnesses.

  4. Armed forces personnel transport militants in Lower Dir. Photo: File Chief of Army Staff General Qamar Javed Bajwa confirmed on Wednesday the death sentences awarded to four "hardcore" terrorists involved in heinous offences related to terrorism, according to the army's media wing. The Inter Services Public Relations said in a statement that the suspects are accused of abducting/slaughtering of soldiers and attacking law enforcement agencies and armed forces personnel. "On the whole, they were involved in killing of 21 persons and injuring another person. Arms and explosives were also recovered from their possession. These convicts were tried by military courts. They were awarded death sentence," the statement reads. Army chief approves death sentence for four terrorists Convicts were involved in attacks on security forces and civilians.

He was also involved in the kidnapping and slaughtering of four soldiers. 2. Umara Khan, son of Ahmed Khan. The convict was a member of a proscribed organisation and was involved in attacking armed forces personnel which resulted in the death of three soldiers.

  5. MADRID: Lionel Messi struck four goals as Barcelona romped past Eibar 6-1 on Tuesday to extend their lead at the top of La Liga and maintain their 100 percent record. The Argentine was at his brilliant best as he lethally picked off the demoralised Basques, opening the scoring from the penalty spot in the 21st minute after Nelson Semedo was brought down by Alex Galvez. With Barcelona leading 3-1, Messi struck three more times to help the Catalans move up to 15 points from five games, five clear of second-placed Sevilla, having played one match more. Paulinho had headed home from a corner to score Barcelona?s second before halftime. It was his second goal in the last two games, a feat matched by Denis Suarez who increased Barcelona?s lead to 3-0, before Sergi Enrich pulled one back for Eibar.
  6. KHOST: Four people were killed and 14 others wounded in an explosion at a mobile phone market in southeastern Afghanistan on Sunday, officials said, in the latest attack to hit the war-weary country. The deadly blast comes as the Afghan government considers a plan to arm 20,000 civilians to fight the Taliban and other insurgent groups which have gained ground since US-led NATO combat troops left in 2014. "The blast happened at around noon in a market where people go to download music and videos to their mobile phones," Khost provincial police chief Faizullah Khairat told AFP. He said the explosion was caused by a "remote-controlled bomb". Khost health department director Habib Shah Ansari confirmed four people had been killed and said "over a dozen wounded" had been taken to hospitals in the provincial capital of the same name. There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack but the volatile province bordering Pakistan is contested by the Taliban. Music was one of the many forms of entertainment banned during the Taliban´s 1996-2001 rule and the militants have previously attacked such markets. The province has come under attack by the Taliban in recent months. As Ramadan began on May 27, a Taliban car bomber targeted a CIA-funded Afghan militia group, leaving 13 people dead and six injured in Khost. It was the deadliest Ramadan since the US-led invasion in 2001 with over 200 killed and hundreds wounded, according to an AFP count based on official figures, underscoring the deteriorating security situation. Afghan security forces have been struggling to beat back a resurgent Taliban, which last month vowed to make Afghanistan a "graveyard" for foreign forces after US President Donald Trump made an open-ended commitment to keep American boots on the ground. As it searches for a security quick fix, the Afghan government is considering a proposal to train and arm civilians to defend territories where Islamic militants have been driven out. The plan has sparked concern the local forces could become another thuggish militia and end up terrorising and abusing the people they are supposed to defend. In Afghanistan, militias ? private armies and government-backed armed groups ? have a long and chequered history and many Afghans are wary of them. "The Afghan government´s expansion of irregular forces could have enormously dangerous consequences for civilians," said Patricia Gossman, a senior researcher at Human Rights Watch.
  7. LAHORE: Interior Minister Ahsan Iqbal said on Saturday that Pakistan made exceptional gains during the past four years, adding that today the country is peaceful. The interior minister spoke to media in Lahore, where he also paid tribute to World XI players who came to Pakistan in a bid to revive cricket here.

  8. LONDON: Arsenal's Europa League encounter with Cologne finally got underway an hour late on Thursday despite police making arrests after dealing with "disorder" at the Emirates Stadium as German fans occupied home sections of the ground. Thousands of ticketless supporters of German club Cologne arrived at the Emirates, while travelling supporters who did have tickets were unable to gain access to the ground for the Group H opener, with kick-off delayed by an hour in the interests of "crowd safety". The match did begin at its rescheduled time of 9:05pm local time (2005 GMT), having been pushed back an hour from its original 8:05pm (1905 GMT) start. Some Arsenal fans called for the Cologne supporters to be moved to designated away areas but stewards decided to leave them where they were, with a club spokesman telling Britain's Press Association: "The players were relaxed and preparing for the game despite the delay... The decision to go ahead was the best option and the safest option." Cologne fans, who had been singing before kick-off, had even more reason to celebrate when Jhon Cordoba's 40-yard strike gave the visitors a ninth-minute lead. "Officers are dealing with disorder at the Emirates Stadium where fans have gathered for the Arsenal vs FC Koln match," said a pre-match statement issued by London's Metropolitan Police. "A policing plan is in place for the game. Additional officers have been deployed." A subsequent statement confirmed arrests had taken place. "Arrests at 2141hrs (2041 GMT) = four people have been arrested on suspicion of public order offences," Scotland Yard said. One social media post appeared to indicate scuffles inside the ground, with Richard Conway, a BBC sports news correspondent, tweeting: "Koln (Cologne) fans fighting with stewards inside Emirates stadium. Group arrived in home end and fought their way into away section." Earlier reports suggested as many as 20,000 Cologne fans had gathered in London just hours before Thursday's kick-off despite only 3,000 tickets being made available to away supporters. Posts on social media sites showed large numbers of Cologne fans singing and marching around Oxford Circus in central London. Meanwhile Arsenal issued a statement on their website warning travelling fans they risked being kicked out of the ground if they bought tickets in the sections of the Emirates reserved for home supporters. "Please note visiting supporters that purchase a ticket in the home end for this fixture are likely to be ejected from the stadium," the statement said. Cologne are currently bottom of the Bundesliga table, having lost all three of their opening games in this season's German top flight. But they qualified for the Europa League after finishing fifth last term. Cologne coach Peter Stoeger, asked on the eve of the Group H opener if he had a message for the thousands of travelling fans, replied: "Enjoy the pubs!"

In light of the Supreme Court's July 28 decision on Panama case, NAB will file three corruption references against members of the Sharif family and one against Finance Minister Ishaq Dar. Sharif family and Dar can face up to 14 years imprisonment, heavy fine, and freezing of property if the accountability court accepts that a violation of Section 9 of the NAB Ordinance 1999 has been done as suggested in the report of the Panamagate Joint Investigation Team (JIT). After the Supreme Court announced the disqualification of Nawaz Sharif as prime minister on July 28, NAB was ordered to file references against Nawaz, his children Hussain, Hasan, and Maryam, son-in-law MNA Capt (retd) Safdar and Dar. The accountability bureau was given six weeks, from the date of the court's order, to file the reference in an accountability court.

The Bureau's Lahore branch prepared a reference on the Sharif family's Avenfield apartments in London and another against Dar for owning assets beyond his known sources of income. Sources said NAB has decided not to file the Hudaibia Paper Mills case as the apex court's order regarding it is unclear and has sought legal assistance over the matter. Meanwhile, NAB Chairman Qamar Zaman Chaudhry rejected recommendations by the Bureau's regional chiefs in Rawalpindi and Lahore to freeze assets of Sharif family members and Dar, sources told Geo News. Chaudhry also rejected the recommendation to add the names of Sharif, Hasan, Hussain, and Dar on the Exit Control List (ECL). References A reference against Nawaz, Maryam, Hussain, Hasan and Capt (retd) Safdar, relating to the Avenfield properties (flats 16, 16-A, 17 and 17-A Avenfield House, Park Lane, London, United Kingdom), has been directed to be filed by NAB. "In preparing and filing this Reference, the NAB shall also consider the material already collected during the course of investigations conducted earlier, as indicated in the detailed judgments," the court ruled. The court also ordered the filing of a reference against respondents Nawaz, Hussain, and Hasan regarding Azizia Steel Company and Hill Metal Establishment. A reference was ordered against Dar possessing assets and funds beyond his known sources of income, "as discussed in paragraph 9 of the judgment". The court also ordered NAB to include in its proceedings all other persons including Sheikh Saeed, [nephew of Dar?s wife] Musa Ghani, [son of a retired officer from London Stock Exchange] Kashif Masood Qazi, [Nawaz?s friend] Javaid Kiyani and [National Bank of Pakistan President] Saeed Ahmed, who have any direct or indirect nexus or connection with the actions of Nawaz, Hussain, Hasan, Maryam and Dar, leading to acquisition of assets and funds beyond their known sources of income. A reference was also ordered against Nawaz, Hussain, and Hasan regarding the companies mentioned in paragraph nine of the judgment. The bench also gave NAB the option to file supplementary reference(s) "if and when any other asset, which is not prima facie reasonably accounted for, is discovered".
  13. Quaid-i-Azam University, Islamabad Just four Pakistani universities managed to make it to the top 1,000 of the 14th annual edition of the Times Higher Education (THE) World University Rankings this year. The rankings reflect a downgrade from last year's list, in which seven Pakistani institutes featured among the top 1,000 in the world. Of the four institutes, only Quaid-i-Azam University (QAU) is among the top 500 ? an improvement from its position in the 601-800 cohort in last year's rankings. Other Pakistani universities to feature in the top 1,000 include COMSATS Institute of Information Technology, the National University of Sciences and Technology (NUST) in the 601-800 band, and the University of Agriculture, Faisalabad in the 801+ group. In comparison to its neighbours, 60 universities from China, 30 from India and 11 from Iran appeared in the rankings. University of Oxford topped the rankings, followed by the University of Cambridge in second place, and the California Institute of Technology and Stanford University sharing the third spot. Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Harvard University, Princeton University, Imperial College London, University of Chicago, ETH Zurich and University of Pennsylvania rounded up the top 10. The THE top 1,000 universities have all been assessed across THE?s balanced range of 13 separate performance metrics, covering the full range of a university?s core activities: teaching, research, knowledge transfer and international outlook. They have all been evaluated by their academic peers through THE?s annual Academic Reputation Survey, which draws on more than 20,000 survey responses from senior scholars from more than 140 countries, according to the THE website.
  14. 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.

Police said the incident took place when a group of children entered a mall on Sargodha Road trying to catch a kite. Subsequently, the security guard on duty opened fire, killing one of the children, police added.

Photo: Reuters File More than four million records of users of Time Warner Cable?s MyTWC app were found unsecured on an Amazon server last month, digital security research center Kromtech Security Center said in a blog post on Friday. The files ? more than 600 gigabytes in size containing sensitive information such as transaction ID, user names, Mac addresses, serial numbers, account numbers ? were discovered on August 24 without a password by researchers of Kromtech. ?A vendor has notified us that certain non-financial information of legacy Time Warner Cable customers who used the MyTWC app became potentially visible by external sources,? Charter Communications Inc, Time Warner Cable?s parent, said in an email. The information was removed immediately after the discovery and the incident is being investigated, Charter said. The breach was eventually linked to BroadSoft Inc, a communications company, whose unit developed the MyTWC app. Broadsoft did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
  17. File Photo KARACHI: Four people were electrocuted to death, while one was severely wounded in a rain-related incident Friday night here on Jinnah Road in the Sher Shah area, Geo News reported.

  18. ISLAMABAD: The Supreme Court of Pakistan while rejecting an appeal by the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government on Monday ordered it to reopen four women crisis centers in the province. The provincial government had closed the centers in 2010 because of "shortage of funds", which prompted women working in the centers to challenge the decision in the Peshawar High Court. The PHC had ordered reopening the centers, but the provincial government filed an appeal in the apex court against the verdict. A three-member bench of the apex court, led by Justice Dost Mohammad, rejected the appeal and maintained PHC verdict. In his remarks, Justice Dost Mohammad said that PTI garnered votes by promising to empower women in the province and so these centers must be reopened. "Depriving women of their rights is worst example of bad governance; instead of enslaving women, they must be empowered," he said. The honourable judge noted that the KP government receives funds worth millions of dollars under international agreements aimed at empowering women, hence there should be no problem in reopening these centers.

  21. PANCHKULA: Four people were killed in northern India Friday when violent protests erupted over a court's decision to convict a controversial Indian guru for raping two devotees, police said. "There are four fatalities and some injuries. We are trying to bring the situation under control," said a senior police officer who asked not to be named. An Indian court found self-styled spiritual leader Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh guilty of raping a woman follower. The woman, a former follower, had accused Singh of repeatedly raping her inside the campus of Dera Sacha Sauda, Singh's organisation, in Haryana in 1999. The Haryana government had earlier imposed a curfew in the town of Sirsa and ordered thousands of followers to home as he headed to court on Friday for a decision in a rape trial that had raised fears of mass unrest. Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh, the head of a social welfare and spiritual group, commands a following that he claims in the millions, many of whom have been in the streets since Thursday, protesting his innocence.

Numerous other suspects were detained by Rangers in a raid carried out in Lyari's Sango Lane area, sources stated. No further information ? such as the number of detainees ? was provided by the sources.
  23. Our favourite show ‘Game of Thrones' is back with its 7th season and so is our obsession for watching it before everyone else. To avoid spoilers and ruin it for everyone else, the fastest option seems to be the pirated and leaked versions floating online. Well, when half the world is watching it, why shouldn't we, right? But, ever wondered what happens to the source who leaks it? They get arrested by the cyber cell before they can even get to see the ‘leaked episode 6'. If Monday wasn't bad anyway, it turned worse for these four men who saw the real life White Walkers aka Mumbai police, walk into their lives and arrest them for leaking an episode of ‘Game of Thrones' online. © HBO Three employees of Prime Focus Technology and a former employee have been accused of leaking the show's fourth episode online. Reportedly, the complaint was filed by the company. It processes the series for online streaming service Hotstar and a Mumbai court remanded them in police custody till August 21. Yes, we are talking about ‘The Spoils of War' and apparently the leak of this episode was separate from the HBO hack that stirred a storm on the Internet. © HBO The company that is said to have the season's airing rights lodged a complaint after they found the low quality video of the episode on the internet, before the official airing. They caught hold of the culprits because they saw the channel's watermark on it. According to Hindustan Times, the people accused are Bhaskar Joshi, Alok Sharma, Abhishek Ghadiyal and Mohammad Suhail. They have been booked under section 408, 34 of IPC for breach of trust with common intention and sections 43 and 66 of IT Act for penalty and compensation for damage to computer and computer-related offences. ‘Game of Thrones' has already become the most pirated show on television and has compelled half of us to wait for the leak, more than the actual airing of any episode. While, we are losing our sh*t over the leaked episode 6, please beware before sharing anything because ‘cyber cell is coming'.
  24. NEW DELHI: Indian police have arrested four people on suspicion of leaking an unaired episode of HBO's hit series Game of Thrones, police in the city of Mumbai said on Tuesday. The wildly popular fantasy drama is already the most pirated show on television and has been bedevilled by repeated leaks of episodes before they air. According to police, three of the accused work for Prime Focus Technologies, a Mumbai-based company that processes the series for Indian streaming website Hotstar. The fourth is a former employee. The leaking of the episode on August 4, titled "The Spoils of War," was separate from a recent hack on HBO, which included the theft of proprietary information, such as programming. "We received a complaint from Prime Focus Technologies regarding the leaking of episode 4, series 7," Akbar Pathan, deputy commissioner of police in the Mumbai cyber crime unit, told Reuters. "In the investigation, it was revealed that four persons were involved." The suspects have been charged with criminal breach of trust and computer-related offences. They appeared in court and were remanded until August 21. Emmy Award-winning Game of Thrones ? which has a huge following in South Asia ? is distributed in India by Twenty-First Century Fox Inc's subsidiary Star India.

  25. The Big Ben, London LONDON: Britain´s much-loved Big Ben will fall silent for four years from next week as conservation work is carried out on the famous 19th century bell in a clock tower next to the Houses of Parliament. "Big Ben falling silent is a significant milestone in this crucial conservation project," Steve Jaggs, whose official title is "Keeper of the Great Clock", said in a parliament statement on Monday. "This essential programme of works will safeguard the clock on a long term basis, as well as protecting and preserving its home -- the Elizabeth Tower," he said. It will be the longest period that Big Ben, whose bongs are familiar to many people around the world because of their use in BBC radio and television broadcasts, has been silent in its 157-year history. The Great Bell, popularly called Big Ben, weighs 13.7 tonnes and strikes every hour to the note of E. Four smaller bells also chime every 15 minutes. The last bong before the refurbishment will be at 12 pm (1100 GMT) on August 21, the statement said. The clock will still tell the time silently until 2021 and the chimes will continue to be rung on important occasions such as New Year´s Eve. The Elizabeth Tower, which is 96 metres (315 feet) high, is the most photographed building in Britain. The tower itself is commonly referred to as Big Ben even though the name applies only to the bell. The clock´s cogs and hands as well as the four dials will be removed, cleaned up and repaired as part of the work. The project´s cost was estimated last year at £29 million (31.9 million euros, $37.7 million). Because the clock mechanism will be temporarily out of action, a modern electric motor will drive the clock hands until the clock is reinstated. Parliament also said that the clock´s faces would have to be covered up while they are being repaired. "However, to ensure that the public are still able to set their watches by this most important of time pieces, one working clock face will remain visible at all times throughout the works," it said.
