  1. Three Muslims clerics were allegedly attacked with sharp objects by unknown men for covering their heads in Uttar Pradesh's Baghpat district on Thursday, reported Indian media. The three men, identified as Gulzar, Israr and Abrar, were getting off a train when they were attacked by six to seven men, reported ANI. The attack occurred after the men quarreled over Muslim men covering heads. There were also reports that the clerics were pushed off the throw, but the police did not confirm it. As a result, the three men were shifted to a nearby hospital for medical treatment. The three clerics started wearing their shoes to get off at village Aheda in Baghpat when men attacked them with iron rods and an ice pick. ?The police have registered an FIR against the unidentified attackers,? Northern Railway?s public relations officer Nitin Chaudhary told ANI. In May, two Muslim men were killed after they were attacked by Indian villagers who suspected them of stealing cows, police said Monday, the latest such attack over the animal Hindus consider sacred. Police in the northeastern state of Assam said they had registered a murder case over the deaths of Abu Hanifa and Riyazuddin Ali, who were beaten with sticks on Sunday. Two suspects have been detained for questioning. Mob in India kills two Muslims over suspected cow theft Two Muslim men have died after they were attacked by Indian villagers "They were chased and beaten with sticks by villagers who said the two boys were trying to steal cows from their grazing field," Debaraj Upadhyay, Nagaon´s top cop, told AFP by telephone. "By the time we took them to the hospital at night they had succumbed to their injuries," he added. The incident comes amidst a wave of rising tensions over the killing and smuggling of cows in Hindu-majority India, where the animal is considered sacred and its slaughter is a punishable offence in many states.
  2. LONDON: People who drink three to four cups of coffee a day are more likely to see health benefits than harm, experiencing lower risks of premature death and heart disease than those who abstain, scientists said on Wednesday. The research, which collated evidence from more than 200 previous studies, also found coffee consumption was linked to lower risks of diabetes, liver disease, dementia and some cancers. Three or four cups a day confer the greatest benefit, the scientists said, except for women who are pregnant or who have a higher risk of suffering fractures. Coffee is one of the most commonly consumed drinks worldwide. To better understand its effects on health, Robin Poole, a public health specialist at Britain?s University of Southampton, led a research team in an ?umbrella review? of 201 studies based on observational research and 17 studies based on clinical trials across all countries and all settings. ?Umbrella reviews? synthesise previous pooled analyses to give a clearer summary of diverse research on a particular topic. ?Coffee drinking appears safe within usual patterns of consumption,? Pool?s team concluded in their research, published in the BMJ British medical journal late on Wednesday. Drinking coffee was consistently linked with a lower risk of death from all causes and from heart disease. The largest reduction in relative risk of premature death is seen in people consuming three cups a day, compared with non-coffee drinkers. Drinking more than three cups a day was not linked to harm, but the beneficial effects were less pronounced. Coffee was also associated with a lower risk of several cancers, including prostate, endometrial, skin and liver cancer, as well as type 2 diabetes, gallstones and gout, the researchers said. The greatest benefit was seen for liver conditions such as cirrhosis of the liver. Poole?s team noted that because their review included mainly observational data, no firm conclusions could be drawn about cause and effect. But they said their findings support other recent reviews and studies of coffee intake.
  3. KOHAT: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan said on Wednesday that his party?s provincial government empowered police department. ?We didn?t let any political interference in the police department,? he said. ?We just chose the best possible Inspector General to lead it.? Khan said that the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz chief asked in his recent address in Abbottabad that 'where is new KP', "I want him to look at the KP Police, he will see the new KP," he said. "Nawaz Sharif is addressing rallies in KP without bulletproof glasses, he should know this is new KP," Khan added. The PTI chief said that he is proud of the performance of police department particularly in Mashal Khan and Dera Ismail Khan cases. Khan said that the opposition parties created drama on DI Khan case for their political motives, the PTI leader added that he immediately called the IG on the case. "Today the KP police do not follow anyone's instructions, it works by the book. It doesn't take dictation from any Raiwand" he said. Responding to a question, he said that the lawmakers who voted to allow PML-N leader to remain party leader despite disqualification should 'drown with shame'. "Who makes a person involved in looting national exchequer their party leader," he said.
  4. SARCELLES: A 31-year-old French police officer shot three people dead before turning his gun on himself, in a killing spree sparked by a row with his girlfriend, police the local prosecutor said Sunday. The news comes with France already grappling with the surge in police suicides this year. The Paris officer, Arnaud Martin, finished his shift on Saturday evening and went to meet his girlfriend in Sarcelles, a suburb north of the capital city, to discuss ending their relationship. But after an argument broke out, Martin shot the young woman in the face and killed two men who were nearby, aged 30 and 44, one of whom had tried to intervene, said Eric Corbaux, prosecutor for the Pontoise department, said. He then went to his girlfriend´s home just a few yards away, where he killed the girl´s father and seriously injured her mother in the throat. He also shot the woman´s sister in the leg and killed the family dog. The attacker was later found "dead from a gunshot wound to the head, his gun in his hand, in the back of the garden," Corbaux said. His former girlfriend was in serious condition in hospital on Sunday. "According to his superiors, he was a good civil servant, a very serious former gendarme," Corbaux said. Saturday´s tragedy comes as French officials confront a sharp increase in police suicides, with more than 45 officers and 16 gendarmes killing themselves so far this year. But Interior Minister Gerard Collomb said Sunday that he would not backtrack on allowing officers carry their weapons when off-duty, a practice France introduced after the November 2015 terror attacks in Paris. "It´s something that requires a lot of attention by police supervisors," Collomb said on France Inter radio, though he acknowledged that most police suicides are prompted by events in their private lives.

  10. KOUT: An Iraqi army helicopter crashed Sunday south of Baghdad during a training exercise killing all three crew members due to a technical problem, military officials said. "A Mi-17 military helicopter crashed during a training exercise and its crew was killed," the army said in a statement. Three air force officers were killed in the crash in the province of Wasit, southeast of Baghdad, an air force official told AFP on condition of anonymity. Another air force officer said the helicopter came down at 0530 GMT "due to a technical problem". In January, a Russian-made Mi-35 attack helicopter went down south of the northern city of Mosul, killing all four crew members -- two pilots and two technicians -- also due to a technical failure. The accident came as Iraqi forces were battling the Daesh group and an Iraqi officer at the time said the intensity of the war on Daesh meant that necessary maintenance work on such helicopters was not always satisfactory. In February 2016, the crash of another Mi-17 -- also Russian made and used for transport mainly -- killed nine, with the accident also blamed on a technical problem.
  11. TOULOUSE: A man rammed a car into three Chinese students near the French city of Toulouse on Friday, injuring one of them seriously, police sources told AFP. The 28-year-old driver, who was arrested immediately afterwards in the city's Blagnac suburb, acted "deliberately" but was not on a list of known extremists, one source said, asking not to be named. He had previously suffered severe psychiatric problems and was released from a court-ordered hospital stay in December 2016, the Toulouse prosecutor said. The man had about 10 previous convictions, the prosecutor told the BFMTV news channel. The investigation is to be handled by regular judicial police rather than Paris's anti-terror unit, he said. BFMTV said the man was known to police for previous non-terror crimes. All three of Friday's victims, who were on a crosswalk when the ramming occurred, were in their twenties, with a 23-year-old woman the most seriously injured and two men aged 22 and 23 also hurt. The woman's life is not in danger, police said. France has been a victim of a series of vehicle attacks by militants inspired by Daesh, but there was no immediate confirmation of the driver's identity or motive. In July last year, a Tunisian man ploughed a 19-tonne truck into a crowd in the southern city of Nice, killing 86 people. Toulouse in southwest France is the home of the Airbus plane manufacturer.

  13. A nine-storey residential building partially collapsed in Izhevsk, Russia, following a suspected gas explosion. Photo: AFP MOSCOW: At least three people were killed and three others injured when a corner section of a nine-storey residential building collapsed in the provincial city of Izhevsk, Russian authorities said Thursday. "At 7:00 pm (1600 GMT) Moscow time, there were three dead and three injured," emergencies ministry representative Pyotr Fomin said in televised remarks. "One child is among the dead," added Alexander Brechalov, the head of the Udmurtia region of which Izhevsk is the capital. According to the local health ministry, a member of the rescue team was also injured. The cause of the collapse was likely a gas explosion and other residents have been evacuated from the building, emergencies ministry official Igor Kutrovsky said. A representative of the Investigative Committee, Vera Filippova, said a probe into the collapse has been launched. According to the emergencies ministry, the building collapsed in the late afternoon, and video footage showed flats on all nine floors reduced to debris, with dust rising from the pile. A total of eight apartments were completely destroyed and 220 rescuers were on the scene looking for survivors. The damaged building is a typical Soviet-era residential block made of concrete panels. "There was the sound of such a loud blast that even the building shook," a witness named Olga who lives in a neighbouring building told state television. Fomin told TASS news agency that the collapsed area had 28 residents, estimating that "not more than 10-15 people" were at home when the accident happened. The ministry sent reinforcements to Izhevsk, which is located some 940 kilometres (585 miles) east of Moscow, and has a population of about 650,000. Explosions caused by natural gas leaks are frequent in Russia, especially in older Soviet-era buildings. The last serious gas explosion in February 2016 killed seven people, including two children, when part of a block of flats collapsed in the city of Yaroslavl, north of Moscow. Another in February 2012 killed 10 people in the southern city of Astrakhan and destroyed the entire side of a nine-storey building.
  14. BEIJING: China has passed legislation to punish anyone who disrespects the national anthem with up to three years in prison, state media reported Saturday. The changes to China's criminal law were approved during a committee meeting of the country´s rubberstamp parliament, the National People´s Congress (NPC), according to the official Xinhua news agency. "Serious cases of disrespecting the country´s national anthem in public would get punishments including deprivation of political rights, criminal detention, and imprisonment of up to three years," it said. China has been fine-tuning legislation on the proper way and place to sing its national anthem, recently tightening rules that already bar people from performing it at parties, weddings and funerals. The country in September passed a National Anthem Law applying to mainland citizens, which specified a much lesser jail term of 15 days for disrespecting the song. Xinhua said the three-year sentence could apply in "serious" cases concerning disrespect towards the anthem, but did not provide further details. According to the National Anthem Law, "The March of the Volunteers" can no longer be played as background music in public places and "inappropriate" private performances of the song are also forbidden. Separately on Saturday, Hong Kong´s government said that law will also apply in the semi-autonomous territory, once the authorities enact a local version of the legislation and get it passed through the legislature. Hong Kong football fans have booed the anthem when it is played at matches for years, as concerns grow about the city´s liberties coming under threat. Pro-Beijing politician Ip Kwok-him said, "when this law is passed, people must stand, there must be a display of solemnity." Ip, a Hong Kong deputy to the NPC, told a radio programme on Saturday that people in the city would have to stop when they heard the anthem even if they were walking. "I´ve personally experienced this in Bangkok, when walking on a pedestrian bridge, all of a sudden I heard a song, all the people on the bridge stopped. I had to stop too after I saw this," he said. Written in 1935 before the Communist Party took power and officially adopted in 1982, the buoyant, military-minded score calls on the Chinese people to "march on" toward the establishment of a new nation. The September law follows regulations on national anthem etiquette that were announced in 2014 to "enhance the song´s role in cultivating core socialist values". An ideological push has intensified in China since President Xi Jinping took power in 2012. He has stressed a drive to infuse every aspect of Chinese education with "patriotic spirit" in a campaign to strengthen the party´s legitimacy -- but which critics condemn as little more than brainwashing. Before Xi, China had laws covering the use of its national flag and national emblem but none for its anthem, aside from a ban on its use in advertisements.

  16. People watch an ambulance leave at the scene of a shooting at a Walmart in Thornton. -AFP WASHINGTON: A man suspected of walking into a Walmart store in Colorado and "nonchalantly" shooting to death two men and a woman has been arrested, police said Thursday. The seemingly random shooting Wednesday in Thornton, Colorado comes a month after a gunman killed 58 people in Las Vegas, the deadliest mass shooting in recent US history. Police identified the suspect in the latest shooting as 47-year-old Scott Ostrem, and said on Twitter he had been taken into custody. Police spokesman Victor Avila said the suspect calmly walked into the Walmart store at 6:10 pm. Walmart employees and shoppers leave the scene of a shooting at a Walmart in Thornton. -AFP "He walked in very nonchalantly with his hands in the pockets, raised a weapon and began shooting. Then he turns around and walks out of the store," the Denver Post quoted Avila as saying. "From what we have right now it appears to be random. It´s a crazy world we live in." Police said the fatalities were two men and a woman. The female victim died later at the hospital. More than 33,000 gun-related deaths occur annually in the United States, according to a study released this month. Moves to curb gun ownership have failed repeatedly to make it through the US Congress over the years, despite a lengthening string of violent episodes.
  17. DUBAI: A Bahraini woman and her son were sentenced Monday to three years in prison for planting a "fake bomb", activists said, in what Amnesty International has called a reprisal case. Hajar Mansoor Hassan and her son Sayed Nizar Alwadaei, 18, were charged under the Gulf state?s counter-terrorism law with planting a fake bomb, the London-based Bahrain Institute for Human Rights and Democracy (BIRD) said. A nephew of Hassan, Mahmood Marzouq, 30, was acquitted of the bomb charge but sentenced to six weeks in jail and fined 100 Bahraini dinars ($265) for possessing a knife, according to BIRD. All three have been in custody since March, but were not brought before the court for the sentencing. The case has come under international scrutiny over both the validity of the charges and the trial procedures. Amnesty International tweeted that Monday?s sentencing was "a reprisal" for the work of the London-based BIRD?s director of advocacy, who is also Hassan?s son-in-law. In a report published on March 27, a group of United Nations special rapporteurs said there was evidence that Bahraini interrogators had threatened Alwadaei "to take revenge on him" over BIRD?s Bahraini director. Human Rights Watch also condemned Monday?s verdicts. "The judicial process was marred by due process violations and allegations of ill treatment and coerced confessions," said the New York-based rights watchdog, adding that an appeal would be filed. "Today?s guilty verdict on dubious charges against three relatives of a human rights defender are testimony to Bahrain?s comprehensive campaign to muzzle dissent," said Joe Stork, HRW?s deputy director for Middle East. "Targetting family members to silence activists amounts to collective punishment," he said. On October 26, 15 non-governmental organisations, including Amnesty and Reporters Without Borders, issued an open letter to several Western governments on the case. The letter asked that the governments demand the authorities in Bahrain drop all charges and release the three. Hassan was one of five women who last week went on hunger strike for six days in protest at the mistreatment of detainees at the Isa Town women?s detention facility. Authorities have since agreed to their demands, which include clean sheets, privacy during phone calls to family and removal of a glass barrier during family visits. Bahrain ? a key ally of the US which bases its Fifth Fleet there ? has cracked down on political dissent since a wave of protests began in 2011 demanding an elected government. Hundreds of protesters have since been jailed and number of high-profile activists and clerics stripped of their citizenship. In April, parliament gave approval for military courts to try civilians charged with "terrorism", a vaguely defined legal term in the kingdom. Bahrain accuses Iran of training "terrorist cells" that aim to overthrow its government, an allegation Tehran denies.
  18. ISLAMABAD: Minister for Interior Ahsan Iqbal on Saturday said the police and local administration were investigating the attack on The News senior reporter Ahmed Noorani and they would present an interim report on the incident within three days. Talking to a private news channel, he strongly condemned the attack on Noorani and said the attackers would be arrested and punished according to law. The minister further said the government had pledged to make the federal capital a peaceful and secure city, adding measures would be taken to stop untoward incidents in the city in future. The condition of Noorani is steadily improving, the journalist's brother told Geo News on Saturday.

  19. An armoured personnel carrier of The United Nations Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission in Mali (MINUSMA) is parked in Timbuktu, September 19, 2016. AFP/Sebastien Rieussec/Files ABIDJAN: Three United Nations soldiers were killed and two others wounded by an explosive device as they were escorting a convoy in northern Mali on Thursday, the peacekeeping mission in the West African nation said. More than 80 members of the UN mission ? known as MINUSMA ? have been killed since 2013 in attacks by militant groups active in the country?s north and centre. The mission said in a statement that the peacekeepers? vehicle struck the explosive device between the northern towns of Tessalit and Aguelhok around 2:30 PM (7:30 PM GMT). It did not identify the nationalities of the soldiers involved. ?I condemn with the greatest energy such abject acts, whose only objective is to destabilize the country and harm the peace process underway in Mali,? said interim mission chief Koen Davidse. The rise of extremist groups ? some linked to al Qaeda and Daesh ? in the arid Sahel has alarmed Western powers like France, which has deployed thousands of troops to the region in response. Four US Special Forces troops were killed earlier this month in neighbouring Niger by fighters believed to belong to a local Daesh affiliate operating out of Mali.

  21. STOCKHOLM: A former Swedish women's international star claimed Sunday that she was sexually harassed by three well-known male national team players that included being sent a series of lewd photographs. Gunilla Axen ? who was a European champion in 1984 ? told Aftonbladet newspaper that the three men were "very well known, respected and successful" when the alleged incidents occurred in the first decade of the century. While Axen refused to name the players involved, she claimed that she had received on three occasions "photos" of genitalia. At the time of the incidents, Axen was working as head of development at the Swedish Football Association (SvFF). "The president and the council (of the SvFF) have been informed, but they have remained silent," she said. Contacted by Aftonbladet, the current president of the federation, who was not in office at the time, said he was "very shocked". "Of course, we do not tolerate this type of behaviour. We need to know more and act as quickly as any form of attack is totally unacceptable", SvFF spokesman Niklas Bodell said.

Photo: AP OSLO: Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg on Friday announced a cabinet reshuffle putting women in "the top three spots" of government. Defense Minister Ine Eriksen Soreide was named the country´s new foreign minister to replace her male colleague Borge Brende, who is stepping down to take over as president of the World Economic Forum. Soreide, 41, is the first woman to become the top diplomat in NATO member Norway. She joins Solberg and Finance Minister Siv Jensen in holding "the top three spots" in the right-wing government, according to the expression used by Norwegian media. "We´re not the first in the world but it is a page in Norway´s history that is being written," Solberg said at a press conference. The Philippines, Switzerland and Liberia have already had such a constellation, she noted. Like its Scandinavian neighbours, Norway is a pioneer when it comes to gender equality: back in 1986, the Labour government of female prime minister Gro Harlem Brundtland had almost as many women cabinet members as men, with eight out of 18. Solberg also announced that Frank Bakke-Jensen would be taking over as defence minister, while his European affairs portfolio would be handed to newcomer Marit Berger Rosland -- a woman. In power since 2013, the right-wing won a narrow victory in legislative elections on September 11. According to Norwegian media, Solberg could announce another government reshuffle by the end of the year if the small centre-right Liberal Party joins the minority coalition, currently made up of Solberg´s Conservatives and Jensen´s anti-immigration Progress Party.
  23. WASHINGTON: Police arrested a gunman suspected of killing three people and wounding two Wednesday at a suburban Maryland business park before shooting another man in neighbouring Delaware. "The suspect in this incident has been located and is in police custody," the Wilmington, Delaware police department said of Radee Prince, 37. Wilmington Police Chief Robert Tracy earlier told reporters that Prince "is a dangerous individual. This person shot six people in one day" in attacks that were not random. Prince had been sought "in connection with both multiple shooting incident early this morning in Edgewood, Maryland and another shooting incident at mid-morning today" in Wilmington, Delaware, a statement from police said. Harford County Sheriff Jeffrey Gahler said three people died in the first incident at a granite business just before 9am. He confirmed a handgun was used and two other victims were transported to trauma centres in serious condition. When the shooter was still at large, several Edgewood-area schools were placed on lockdown, officials said, while the nearby set of popular Netflix show House of Cards was also reportedly secured. Gahler said Prince was associated with the company, Advanced Granite Solutions, where the first shooting occurred, near Baltimore. "This does appear to be a targeted attack, limited to that business," he said. Latest mass shooting Police were investigating Prince's connection with the firm, where all five victims of the first shooting were employed, Gahler said, declining to give further details about them. He said other people besides the five victims were on the premises when the shooting took place. Tracy said the victim in the second shooting identified the gunman. "They're known to each other and they've had some past history," he told a news conference. The suspect fled the first attack in a car registered in Delaware, Gahler said. Variety magazine reported that the set of House of Cards, which is partly filmed in Maryland, was placed on lockdown while police searched for the shooter. The executive producer of the series, Dana Brunetti, addressed the incident in a Facebook post. "Shooting near House of Cards set," Brunetti wrote. Some of the school lockdowns were later lifted, according to Harford County Public Schools. The incident was the latest mass shooting in a country where such killings have become tragically commonplace. On Oct 1, a gunman in a 32nd-floor casino hotel room rained fire down on concert-goers in Las Vegas, killing 58 and wounding more than 500. It was the deadliest shooting in recent US history. To date in 2017 there have been 286 mass shootings ? nearly one per day ? according to the online Gun Violence Archive.

The arrests were made following a letter written by Interpol in which it shared information with the Government of Pakistan. The FIA apprehended the suspects on the directives of Ministry of Interior. The suspects stated before the officials that they played the Blue Whale game and kidnapped a youth in connection with the game. The suspects said they had tied the hands and feet of the kidnapped youth, taped his mouth shut and released their video on a social networking site. A manhunt is still underway for two other accomplices of the arrested suspects. Several people have lost their lives across the world in order to accomplish various tasks relating to the game. In Pakistan, a case involving a girl allegedly affected by playing the same game had also surfaced in Peshawar, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. The parents of the girl had claimed that she would play Blue Whale. The girl was admitted to Peshawar's Khyber Teaching Hospital, where she was kept at psychiatric ward. According to Assistant Registrar Dr. Azaz, medics had found symptoms of depression in the girl. She was discharged after therapy and necessary treatment.
  25. Manchester City beat Napoli 2-1 in their Champions League Group F match on Tuesday, maintaining their 100 percent record after three games, but Pep Guardiola?s side were forced to hang on despite going 2-0 up inside 13 minutes. City started as they left off in their 7-2 crushing of Stoke City in the Premier League on Saturday, attacking with a speed and fluency which the Serie A leaders struggled to cope with. Raheem Sterling put the home side ahead in the ninth minute, finishing with his left foot after Kyle Walker?s attempt to convert a David Silva pull-back was blocked. Four minutes later, the in-form Kevin De Bruyne created the second, powering down the right flank and delivering a pinpoint low cross to Gabriel Jesus who made no mistake. The Premier League leaders were producing wave after wave of attacks and the appreciative crowd sensed that this could be another massacre. Belgian midfielder De Bruyne fired a long-range shot against the bar in the 25th minute after a swift City counter-attack, and then Jesus had a goalbound effort cleared off the line by Kalidou Koulibaly. But then City began to lose focus, sloppily giving the ball away in dangerous positions, slowing down their breaks, and Napoli sensed that the game might not be just about damage limitation. The Italians had an opportunity to narrow the deficit in the 38th minute after Kyle Walker gave away a penalty but City?s Brazilian keeper Ederson produced a fine save to keep out Dries Mertens? spot-kick. After the break, Napoli grew into the game, with some clever touches and smart movement troubling the City defence and John Stones needed to use his midriff to stop a Marek Hamsik shot that was heading for an open goal. Napoli?s reward came when they got a second chance from the spot in the 73rd minute, this time Amadou Diawara firing home after Faouzi Ghoujlam was tripped by Fernandinho. Despite some late pressure from Maurizio Sarri?s side, City showed some grit as they held on to secure their third straight win which leaves them on top of the group with nine points. ?We knew they played patient football and had attacking threat. We knew it would be tough but we wanted to play our football,? said City defender John Stones. ?At times it was great to watch. I am upset to concede the goal we did but overall ... a great team performance. We have put ourselves in a good position (in the group). There are a lot of games to play still. This was a good test to see where we are at,? he added. Napoli are third on three points, trailing second-placed Shakhtar Donetsk who are on six.
