  1. ISLAMABAD: The fact-finding committee investigating the mysterious death of a child maid employed by the brother of a Khyber Pakhtunkhwa provincial minister has recommended grave exhumation and post-mortem of the deceased, informed sources. The young maid employed at Higher Education Minister Mushtaq Ghani?s brother Shoaib Ghani?s house had died mysteriously at a hospital in Abbottabad on January 25. The committee constituted by DIG Hazara was set up to determine whether the cause of death was natural or not. Sources disclosed that the government will give the request for grave exhumation to the local magistrate today. Earlier, a police spokesperson speaking on the case informed that Misbah?s health deteriorated after eating fruits, after which she was taken to a hospital, however, she could not survive. KP IG orders inquiry into death of maid employed by Mushtaq Ghani?s brother The young maid had mysteriously expired at a hospital in Abbottabad on January 25 The spokesman said that a brother and a sister of the girl had also died of the same disease. The investigation can be taken forward after the medical report emerges, said the police spokesman. He further said that no request for legal action has yet been made by Misbah?s family. ?I am as sorrowful about Misbah's death as her family. I have no objection to a probe into her death,? said Mushtaq Ghani. "The ones known for mud-slinging have been doing propaganda," Ghani said. "Every single person is busy scoring points."
  2. There are now more than 900,000 Rohingyas in the Cox?s Bazar area of Bangladesh, after 688,000 fled violence in Myanmar that flared up in late tAugus1 GENEVA: More than 100,000 Rohingya refugees huddled in squalid, muddy camps in Bangladesh will be in grave danger from landslides when the mid-year monsoon season begins, a U.N. humanitarian report said. There are now more than 900,000 Rohingyas in the Cox?s Bazar area of Bangladesh, after 688,000 fled violence in Myanmar that flared up in late August. Aid workers say the camps sheltering the new arrivals are completely inadequate. ?Landslide and flood risk hazard mapping reveal that at least 100,000 people are in grave danger from these risks and require relocation to new areas or within the neighbourhoods that they live in,? the U.N. report said. ?The lack of space remains the main challenge for the sector as sites are highly congested leading to extremely hard living conditions with no space for service provisions and facilities. In addition, congestion brings increased protections risks and favours disease outbreak such as the diphtheria outbreak currently escalating in most of the sites.? Although a rapid vaccination program appears to have staved off the risk of cholera, 4,865 have confirmed, probable or suspected diphtheria, and 35 have died. The World Health Organization has vaccinated over 500,000 Rohingyas against diphtheria and on Saturday health workers began giving 350,000 children a second dose. The WHO also has 2,500 doses of anti-toxin, which is in short supply globally, to treat the deadly effects of the disease. But a new health concern has arisen - mumps. The U.N. report said there had been an increase in cases in the past few weeks, and Rohingya refugees and host communities had never been vaccinated against the highly contagious disease, which is rarely fatal but can cause complications such as meningitis. Most of the Rohingya refugees - almost 585,000 - are in an overcrowded area called Kutupalong-Balukhali. ?A high percentage of the land is unsuitable for human settlement as risks of flooding and landslides are high and are further aggravated by the congestion and extensive terracing of the hills,? the U.N. report said. ?The anticipated flooding and landslides in the upcoming monsoon season will make a bad situation much worse.? A recent engineering assessment said all roads in the camp would be inaccessible for trucks, and the World Food Programme is considering using porters to distribute food, minutes of a Jan. 24 meeting of aid agencies involved in logistics said. The Bangladeshi government allocated 2,000 acres (809 hectares) for a new camp in Ukhia, prompting an influx of people before anything was ready. ?Humanitarian partners are now building necessary infrastructure in challenging conditions, with extremely limited space,? the U.N. report said.
  3. YANGON: Rohingya insurgents said on Saturday that 10 Rohingya found in a mass grave in Myanmar?s troubled Rakhine state last month were ?innocent civilians?, and not members of their group. Myanmar?s military said earlier this week its soldiers had killed 10 captured ?terrorists? during insurgent attacks at the beginning of September, after Buddhist villagers had forced the captured men into a grave the villagers had dug. It was a rare acknowledgment of wrongdoing by the Myanmar military during its operations in the western state of Rakhine. The Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army (ARSA), whose raids against security posts starting last August sparked sweeping military operations in the Muslim-majority northern part of Rakhine, said it ?whole-heartedly welcomes the admission? of ?war crimes? by the ?Burmese terrorist army?. ?We hereby declare that these ten innocent Rohingya civilians found in the said mass grave in Inn Din Village Tract were neither ARSA nor had any association with ARSA?, the group said in a statement on Twitter. A Myanmar government spokesman said in response to ARSA?s statement that sometimes ?terrorists and villagers were allied? in attacks? against security forces. ?We have already said it is very difficult to segregate who is a terrorist and who are innocent villagers,? spokesman Zaw Htay said. ?There will be an ongoing investigating process whether they are members of ARSA or not.? The Myanmar military did not immediately respond to requests for comment. ?NEW STEP? Myanmar?s civilian leader Aung San Suu Kyi said on Friday it was ?positive? that the country?s military was taking responsibility for the actions of troops. ?It is a new step for our country,? she told a joint news conference with Japanese Foreign Minister Taro Kono in Myanmar?s capital of Naypyitaw. ?I see it that way because a country needs to take responsibility for the rule of law in the country, and this is the first step on the road of taking responsibility and it is a positive thing,? She said, according to a transcript of the news conference posted on her Facebook page. On Dec. 18, the military announced a mass grave containing 10 bodies had been found at the coastal village of Inn Din, about 50 km (30 miles) north of the state capital Sittwe. The army appointed a senior officer to investigate. A statement from the military on Wednesday said its investigation had found that members of the security forces had taken part in the killings and action would be taken against them. Some civilians wanted to kill the 10 men to avenge the death of an ethnic Rakhine Buddhist man in Inn Dinn village named Maung Ni and would face punishment, the military said. On Saturday, a lawyer for one of Maung Ni?s sons said police were seeking murder charges against the son, named Tun Aye, for taking part in the killings. Lawyer Khin Win said a murder complaint against the son was filed with local prosecutors last week in Maungdaw, the nearest town to Inn Din. Tun Aye was one of four Inn Din villagers detained by police on Dec. 15, said Khin Win. The other three had been released, he said. National police spokesman Thet Naing said he was not aware of the murder complaint. The Rohingya crisis erupted after Rohingya insurgent attacks on security posts on Aug. 25 in Rakhine triggered a fierce military response that the United Nations denounced as ethnic cleansing. Myanmar denies ethnic cleansing, saying its security forces had mounted legitimate counter-insurgency clearance operations.
  4. Sensing the gathering storm, Trump tried to absolve himself of blame and urged Republicans to run "GREAT Republican candidates" in future WASHINGTON: US President Donald Trump is scrambling to come to grips with a more perilous political reality, after a stunning Democratic election victory in America´s deeply conservative south threw the depth and breadth of his support into serious doubt. Doug Jones´ win in an Alabama Senate race Tuesday -- the first such Democratic victory in a quarter-century -- cut the Republican majority in the Senate to 51-49, squeezing Trump´s ability to get legislation through Congress. The finger of blame turned squarely to Republican candidate Roy Moore, who ran on an openly bigoted message, was plagued by allegations of sexual misconduct with teenage girls and ignored party calls to drop out. Sensing the gathering storm, Trump tried to absolve himself of blame and urged Republicans to run "GREAT Republican candidates" in future. "Roy worked hard but the deck was stacked against him!" Trump tweeted, reminding Americans that Moore was not his first choice in the race. He had unsuccessfully endorsed another candidate in the party primary. But as the broader political autopsy commenced, Trump´s role in the race and the implications for his presidency came under the microscope. Trump ignored the advice of party leaders to throw his weight behind 70-year-old Moore, seeing the former Alabama Supreme Court chief justice as something of a kindred political spirit. Like Trump, Moore had sought to win through a coalition of evangelical and white voters, betting that bedrock of support would be enough -- and would shield him from any political scandal. Moore -- aided by Trump´s former chief strategist Steve Bannon -- also borrowed liberally from Trump´s playbook, reveling in racially charged statements such as casting doubt on the desirability of abolishing slavery, as well as constant attacks on the press and other "elites." In the run-up to the vote, Trump appealed to evangelicals by recognizing Jerusalem as Israel´s capital and worked to pass tax reform, a central issue for Republicans. Lessons for 2018? But some in Trump´s inner circle now wonder whether Alabama shows the limits of his approach: If it does not work in deep red Alabama, where can it work? The question is one that the White House will have to solve urgently. Next year sees mid-term legislative elections that offer Democrats a chance to regain control of both chambers of Congress. For months, Republican donors have voiced concerns that the party may lose control of the House of Representatives. After the upset in Alabama, even the Senate may be in play. "It opens the door to an unlikely Democratic Senate takeover next year," wrote Kyle Kondik and Geoffrey Skelley of the University of Virginia´s politics department. Roy Moore/File photo Keeping control of both houses is key to Trump passing his agenda -- and avoiding moves toward his own impeachment. With an approval rating of 35 percent, Trump has faced one controversy after another during his 11 months in office. Normally cautious paper USA Today all but called for Trump´s resignation after he suggested a female senator would do "anything" for campaign contributions. "A president who´d all but call a senator a whore is unfit to clean toilets in Obama´s presidential library or to shine George W. Bush´s shoes" the paper wrote in a searing editorial. ´We can be unified´ With 100 percent of Alabama precincts reporting, Jones won 49.9 percent of the vote compared to Moore´s 48.4 percent, a margin of nearly 21,000 votes out of 1.3 million cast, according to figures posted by US media. Jones, 63, is a former federal prosecutor who shot to local prominence when he convicted members of the Ku Klux Klan who bombed a black church in the 1960s, killing four girls. "We have shown the country the way that we can be unified," Jones told ecstatic supporters at his election night party in Birmingham. Democrat Jones wins US Senate seat in Alabama in blow to Trump The stunning upset makes Jones the first Democrat elected to the US Senate from Alabama in a quarter-century and will trim the Republicans? already narrow Senate majority to 51-49 Alabama, which Trump won last year by 28 points, has been at a "crossroads" before, and sometimes did not take the correct path forward, Jones said. "You took the right road," he said. Moore however refused to concede, declaring: "When the vote is this close, it is not over." He signaled he wanted a recount, but Alabama law only provides for an automatic recount if the margin is within half a percentage point. The current margin stands at 1.5 percent. Alabama officials will certify the vote between December 26 and January 3. If no recount is ordered, Jones is expected to be seated in the US Senate in early January. "In this race, we have not received the final count to include military and provisional ballots. This has been a very close race and we are awaiting certification by the Secretary of State," Moore said late Wednesday. "Abortion, sodomy, and materialism have taken the place of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness."
  5. SEOUL: US President Donald Trump issued a stark warning to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on Wednesday, telling him that the nuclear weapons he is developing ?are not making you safer, they are putting your regime in grave danger?. ?Do not underestimate us and do not try us,? Trump told North Korea as he wrapped up a visit to South Korea with a speech to the National Assembly in Seoul. Trump used some of his toughest language yet against North Korea in a wide-ranging address that lodged specific accusations of chilling human rights abuses against Pyongyang. He called on countries around the world to isolate Pyongyang by denying it ?any form of support, supply or acceptance?. Trump painted a dystopian picture of North Korea, saying people were suffering in ?gulags? and some bribed government officials to work as ?slaves? overseas rather than live under the government at home. He offered no evidence to support those accusations. Trump?s return to harsh, uncompromising language against North Korea came a day after he appeared to dial back the bellicose rhetoric that had fuelled fears across east Asia of the risk of military conflict. On Tuesday, Trump had even offered a diplomatic opening to Pyongyang to ?make a deal?. He went mostly on the attack in Wednesday?s speech but did promise a ?path to a much better future? for North Korea if it stopped developing ballistic missiles and agreed to ?complete, verifiable and total denuclearization? ? something Pyongyang has vowed never to do. ?We will not allow American cities to be threatened with destruction. We will not be intimidated,? he told South Korean lawmakers. ?And we will not let the worst atrocities in history be repeated here, on this ground we fought and died to secure.? ?The world cannot tolerate the menace of a rogue regime that threatens it with nuclear devastation,? Trump said, speaking as three US aircraft carrier groups sailed to the Western Pacific for exercises ? a rare show of such US naval force in the region. ?Grave danger? Aiming his words directly at Kim, Trump insisted: ?The weapons that you are acquiring are not making you safer, they are putting your regime in grave danger. Every step you take down this dark path increases the peril you face.? However Trump, whose strategy has stressed sanctions and military pressure instead of diplomacy, did not spell out any new approach to force North Korea to abandon its missile and weapons programmes. North Korea has made clear it has little interest in negotiations at least until it develops a nuclear-tipped missile capable of hitting the US mainland, something US intelligence officials say it may be just months away from achieving. ?North Korea is a country ruled by a cult,? Trump said in a speech that was interrupted several times by applause and ended with a standing ovation. He stopped short, however, of repeating the derisive nickname ?little Rocket Man? that he has used to describe the young North Korean leader. Kim, for his part, has called Trump ?mentally deranged?. The speech came after Trump?s attempt to make an unannounced visit to the heavily fortified border separating North and South Korea was aborted earlier on Wednesday when dense fog prevented his helicopter from landing, officials said. Trump tried to travel to the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) ? the doorstep of the North Korean nuclear standoff ? near the end of a 24-hour visit to ally Seoul. He was then due to fly to China, where US officials say he will press a reluctant President Xi Jinping to tighten the screws further on Pyongyang. However, Trump and his entourage had to turn back when the weather made it impossible for his helicopter to land in the border area, the White House stated. White House spokesperson Sarah Sanders described Trump as ?frustrated? at having to abandon the trip. A visit to the DMZ, despite his aides? earlier insistence he had no plans to go there, would have had the potential to further inflame tensions with North Korea. Trump?s earlier threats to ?totally destroy? North Korea if it threatened the US, and the personal insults he exchanged with Kim after the North?s most recent missile and nuclear tests, had raised fears in the region of a potential spiral into war. China?s role Just before departing for Beijing, Trump specifically cited China, North Korea?s main trading partner, as one of the countries that must fully enforce international sanctions against Pyongyang and downgrade diplomatic and commercial ties. ?To those nations that choose to ignore this threat or, worse still, to enable it, the weight of this crisis is on your conscience,? he said. Trump will try to convince Xi to squeeze North Korea further with steps such as limits on oil exports, coal imports and financial transactions. But it is far from clear if Xi, who has just consolidated his power at a Communist Party congress, will agree to do more. China has repeatedly said its leverage over Pyongyang is exaggerated by the West and that it is already doing all it can to enforce sanctions. Nevertheless, Xi may be mindful that Trump has held off on trade actions against China that he loudly threatened during the 2016 presidential campaign to give Beijing more time to make progress on North Korea.
  6. Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf's (PTI) candidate for NA-120 Yasmin Rashid. Photo: Geo News LAHORE: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf's (PTI) candidate for NA-120 Yasmin Rashid on Tuesday threatened the Punjab government to be prepared for grave consequences if it failed to register a First Information Report (FIR) for a firing incident on her party office on Sunday. The police arrested three people on charges of firing in the air in front of the offices of Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) and PTI NA-120 candidates in Islampura on Sunday. The accused ? identified as Assad, Hamza, and Sher Ali ? drove away after opening indiscriminate fire in front of the offices of PTI and PPP at Neeli Bar Chowk, Islampura, on the second day of Eid. Talking to the media, Rashid said, "Rana Sanaullah should either declare that he is in a mood to fight or control the hooligans firing [at her office]," adding that the PTI would stage protests on all forums if the police failed to register an FIR for the incident. She further said that the public would 'throw stones on the Sharif family's cars' if they get a chance to visit Jati Umra -- which is the Sharif family's residence located in Raiwind. "Maryam shouldn't claim that her father is not guilty of the accusations levelled against him, because if she truly believes in that she should be open to debate about his honesty with me," Rashid lashed at the Sharif family. She also announced her plan to contact the Election Commission of Pakistan for excessive coverage of the Pakistan Muslim League - Nawaz's (PML-N) election campaign on the state-owned television channel. The three arrested people were not affiliated with any political party, the police claimed, adding their objective was to only disturb peace in the area. The assailants' car was impounded. PPP's candidate for NA-120, Faisal Mir, said an application for the FIR was filed on Sunday, alleging that the objective behind the incident was to harass the candidates.
  7. LONDON: The British princes, William and Harry, will attend a private service today (on Saturday) to re-dedicate the grave of their mother Princess Diana on what would have been her 56th birthday. The service will be at Diana´s resting place on the Althorp Estate, her family´s ancestral home in central England, where the princes will be joined by William´s wife Kate and members of Diana´s family. The Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby, the spiritual leader of the Anglican Communion, will conduct the ceremony. Diana, first wife of William´s father and heir-to-the-throne Prince Charles died aged 36 in Paris on August 31, 1997, after the limousine carrying her and lover Dodi al-Fayed crashed in a tunnel as it tried to escape paparazzi who were chasing them on motorbikes. She was buried on a leafy oval island in the grounds of Althorp amid an outpouring of grief across the world. With the 20th anniversary of her death approaching, both William, 35, and Harry, 32, have spoken publicly about the impact that losing their mother has had on lives. In an interview published last week, Harry said the decision to make him walk behind her coffin as the funeral cortege slowly made its way through the packed streets of London when he was a child had had a lasting impact. "My mother had just died, and I had to walk a long way behind her coffin, surrounded by thousands of people watching me while millions more did on television," he said. "I don´t think any child should be asked to do that, under any circumstances. I don´t think it would happen today." Both princes have become prominent mental health campaigners, encouraging people to speak openly rather than bottle up their emotions, and William said in April the shock of losing his mother still lingered. "You never get over it, it´s such an unbelievably big moment in your life that it never leaves you. You just learn to deal with it," he said. Meanwhile, Harry said he had come close to a "complete breakdown" on several occasions and had sought counselling in his late twenties to help deal with the grief of losing Diana.
  8. Ah, shorts. You love them dearly. Think summer, especially on beach holidays—they’re a part of every arsenal you own. But what about jeans? How would they feel? Well, mix the two and here’s the ultimate—a pair of denim shorts a.k.a ‘jorts’ (jeans+shorts). Add some rips, they'd only get better. Distress them a little and they’ll be the best of both worlds. Now, pair with a Disney x Koovs printed shirt and you’d light bulbs of envy. But what should one keep in mind, while treading this route? Men, here’s all you need to know. 1. Get the right fit First and foremost, denim shorts aren’t as comfortable as cotton. Disappointed? Log off, while I resume addressing the rest. Having said that, denim shorts fit you way better than the rest. But invest in slim-fits, but with enough room for movement. And ensure that they don’t crush your family jewels. Shirt- Koovs, Shorts- Jack & Jones, Socks- Soxytoes 2. The right length for you. If you’re tall, you prefer looking your height. Or for a petite Tinder date, you’d probably want to appear shorter sometimes. Simple—if you’re short, stick to short lengths for an illusion of longer legs. And if you’re tall, wear longer shorts (or ones that end above the knee) to justify your height. And, are you a little bulky? Invest in a well-fitted pair, but a tad bit relaxed. Shirt- Koovs 3. The right wash There are innumerable options in denim. Light washes, dark denim and even white/black. For Summer 2017, we’d recommend the light-washed denim shorts. Simple reason being, they’re versatile pairs and come what pay, style well with almost anything. However, just in case, you’re headed the darker route—pamper shirts with dark hues, but T-shirts in fair colours. All in all, be careful with your colour palette; flatter your skin tone best. Shirt- Koovs, Shorts- Jack & Jones 4. How to complete the look… Since we recommend the light-washed denim shorts for you, the methodology is simple. Pair with neutral colours on top, monotones and sometimes, with a crazy-ass print of a Disney x Koovs shirt. You’re safe with your bottom, so you needn’t stress. In conclusion, as I said, light denim shorts are versatile. So, bring out your crazy. ‘30 days of Denim' is a social experiment of sorts, or in layman terms, the ultimate Denim guide, on how to inject your personality, and inherent sense of self into, say, a basic-ass pair of jeans. Bonus: It features 30 really cool men, all with very distinct style sensibilities, but primarily, each having an innate love for all things denim.

  9. VIENNA: It's not only in life that humans leave their mark on Nature. In death, our decomposing corpses alter the chemistry of precious soil, scientists warned on Wednesday. Whether our bodies are buried or cremated, they leach iron, zinc, sulphur, calcium and phosphorus into ground that may later be used as farms, forests or parks. They are essential nutrients, but human funerary practices mean they are being concentrated in cemeteries instead of being dispersed evenly throughout nature, according to new research. This means that in some places the nutrients may be over-concentrated for optimal absorption by plants and creatures, while lacking in others. Furthermore, human bodies also contain more sinister elements, such as mercury from dental fillings. "Chemical traces of decomposed bodies can frequently be very well distinguished in soil," said Ladislav Smejda of the Czech University of Life Sciences in Prague, who took part in the unusual probe. "These traces persist for a very long time, for centuries to millennia." The effects will become more pronounced as more and more dead bodies are laid to rest, Smejda said in Vienna, where he unveiled the research at a meeting of the European Geosciences Union. "What we do today with our dead will affect the environment for a very, very long time," he said. "Maybe it is not such a problem in our current perspective but with an increasing population globally it might become a pressing problem in the future." Smejda and a team used X-ray fluorescence spectroscopy to analyse soil chemicals in graves and ash "scattering gardens". Pushing up daisies Using animal carcasses, they also measured the theoretical impact of an ancient practice called "excarnation", whereby the dead are left out in the open for nature to take its course. In all three cases, the ground contained "significantly" higher concentrations of chemicals compared to the surrounds, Smejda said. If there had been no cemeteries, human remains, like those of animals, would be distributed randomly for the nutrients they release to be reused "again and again, everywhere," the researcher told AFP. But concentrating them in certain places "is something that can be regarded as not natural. It's a human impact, we are changing natural levels," he said. Now the question is: "Can we come up with a better idea (of) how to distribute these necessary elements across wider landscapes?" Smejda added. "Certainly there is a potential to invent, to develop and to put into practice... new ways of human burial or new treatments that could be more environmentally friendly, more ecological." He conceded this was a "taboo" topic for many, with funerary customs deeply rooted in culture and religion. "It's a very complex matter and we are just at the start of this discussion, I think."
