  1. A gunman stormed a suburban Maryland business park Wednesday and shot five people, three of them fatally, before escaping, police officers said. Photo: AFP WASHINGTON: A gunman stormed a suburban Maryland business park Wednesday and shot five people, three of them fatally, before escaping, police officers said. A manhunt was underway for 37-year-old Radee Labeeb Prince, who was associated with the granite business where the shootings took place, said Harford County Sheriff Jeffrey Gahler. "This does appear to be a targeted attack, limited to that business," Gahler said as he confirmed there were three dead and two other victims who were transported to trauma centres in serious condition. He did not explain Prince's exact association with the business. While the sheriff told reporters that investigators do not believe anyone else was involved, "there's an individual out there on the loose who committed one of the most heinous acts we've ever seen in our county." All five victims were shot with a handgun and were employees of the business, Gahler said. The deadly attack in the town of Edgewood, about 23 miles (37 kilometres) northeast of Baltimore, is the latest mass shooting in a country where such killings have become commonplace. On October 1, a gunman in an upper-floor casino hotel room opened fire on thousands of people gathered at an outdoor country music concert in Las Vegas, killing 58 and wounding more than 500 in the deadliest shooting in recent US history. To date in 2017, there have been 285 mass shootings ? defined as four or more people shot or killed, not including the shooter ? in the United States or nearly one per day

  4. -ISPR RAWALPINDI: At least two people were injured on Saturday when Indian forces resorted to unprovoked firing along the Line of Control (LoC) in the Satwal and Nikial sectors on Saturday, said the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR). The Army said Indian forces targeted civilian populations in the villages of Tetrinote, Manwa, Satwal and Balakot, which resulted in injuries to a six-year-old girl and 45-year-old man. ISPR added that Indian forces also targetted Rawalkot Poonch Crossing Point (RPCP) and the visitors? stand at the location. The injured girl. -ISPR "Pakistan Army aggressively and effectively responded to hostile fire, silenced their guns and caused considerable damage to the posts carrying out fire." The statement further added that targetting civilians will not deter Kashmiri people from their just struggle against Indian oppression On October 4, two children were martyred by Indian forces in firing along LoC in Rawalkot and Chirikot Sectors. The Army had also destroyed two Indian posts after a civilian was martyred by Indian firing in an earlier incident. Incidents of cross-border firing have increased since right-wing Narendra Modi came to power in India.
  5. One of the tigers rescued from the destroyed Magic World amusement park near Aleppo/AFP THE HAGUE: Two tigers rescued from an abandoned zoo in the war-torn Syrian town of Aleppo are to be given a new home in a Dutch sanctuary, the animal refuge said Friday. Brother and sister, Sultan and Sayeeda, will arrive Monday in The Netherlands after they were among 13 animals evacuated earlier this year from the "Magic World" zoo and amusement park in the ravaged Syrian city. The Four Paws charity, which goes to the aid of animals in distress around the world, brought the tigers out of Syria and into Turkey at the end of July along with five lions, two bears, two hyenas and two dogs. After a short stay in Turkey to be cared for and treated for neglect, the animals were taken to Jordan in mid-August. While most of the 13 beasts are staying there, Sultan and Sayeeda, who were badly emaciated and de-hydrated, are to be cared for at the Felida refuge in northern Nijeberkoop. The felines, which will be housed in the sanctuary's quietest areas, will receive special medical treatment to help them get over the trauma of the war and develop a more natural behaviour. They "were living in a war zone. They were thirsty and hungry. They could hear lots of noise from the bombings" and suffered a lot of stress as a result, said Simone Schuls, the director of the refuge. "It's a great second chance for these animals," she said, adding the pair may eventually be rehoused elsewhere depending on their recovery. In April in a tough mission in Iraq, Four Paws also rescued a lion and a bear, the last survivors of the ravaged zoo in Mosul.

  7. ISLAMABAD: In a fresh act of state terrorism, Indian troops on Saturday martyred two Kashmiri youth in Pulwama district in Occupied Kashmir. The troops martyred the youths during a siege and search operation in Litter area of the district, according to Kashmir Media Service. People took to the streets in retaliation and started demonstrations against the killings. They raised anti-India and pro-freedom slogans and pelted stones at the Indian forces. The security forces fired bullets, pellets and teargas shells to disperse the protesters, injuring dozens. At least three persons were hit by bullets, hospital sources said.
  8. QUETTA: One policeman was martyred and two others along with a boy were injured in a firing incident on Faqir Mohammad Road today. According to the SSP Operations, the deceased policeman was in critical condition when he was brought to the hospital while the boy injured in the incident was a bystander. The injured are being treated at Civil Hospital, Quetta, according to rescue officials. Police are often targetted in gun and bomb attacks in the provincial capital. Earlier today, the suspected facilitator of the 2016 Civil Hospital bombing was killed in a shootout by the Counter Terrorism Department in Quetta. Police officials said the encounter took place on Qambrani Road, and led to the death of Asfandyar and the arrest of another accomplice. Officials said explosives and arms were recovered from the two. Balochistan Chief Minister Nawaz Sanaullah Zehri appreciated the police operation.
  9. Poroshenko says Ukraine has reached a 'point of no return for judicial reform'. Photo: AFP Ukraine's anti-corruption bureau said Wednesday it had detained a deputy defence minister and another top military official for allegedly embezzling millions in state funding through an illegal oil-purchase scheme. The announcement was the highest-profile indictment against any official since the Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine (NABU) launched a graft case against the now-deposed tax service chief Roman Nasirov in March. NABU did not identify the two defence officials but said the fraud had cost the budget 149 million hryvnias ($5.6 million / 4.7 million euros at today's exchange rate) in 2016. The bureau said the arrangement involved an oil purchase contract that was later revised to inflate the original price by 16 percent to benefit the unnamed supplier. "NABU detectives and special anti-corruption prosecutors have detained two suspected culprits -- a deputy defence minister of Ukraine and the director of the state resource procurement and supply department of the Ukrainian defence ministry," NABU said in a statement. Ukraine's defence ministry said an investigation into two officials whose titles matched those named by NABU was in progress but provided no other details. Poroshenko's promise Corruption has long ravaged the crisis-torn former Soviet republic and been a top concern of both Ukraine's foreign partners and global financial support organisations such as the International Monetary Fund (IMF). But NABU has faced stiff resistance since its launch in December 2015 from institutions such as the general prosecutor's office and the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU). Analysts view both as controlled by vested interests and incapable of leading independent probes into financial misdeeds. The IMF is pressing the pro-Western leaders who rose to power after a 2014 revolution ousted a Russian-backed regime to shore up NABU's efforts by setting up a special anti-corruption court. They say those indicted by NABU often walk free after paying bail and point to Nasirov's case as an example. Nasirov is still under investigation by the general prosecutor's office and has only been barred from leaving Kiev while he cooperates with the authorities in the slow-moving case. Poroshenko told a meeting of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe in the French city of Strasbourg on Wednesday that Ukraine had reached "the point of no return for judicial reform". "I know that the creation of the Anti-Corruption Court draws special attention," Poroshenko said in comments released by his office. "Currently, we are looking for optimal way to establish this vital body." Poroshenko said the current draft law on anti-corruption courts had problems and required broader concensus. "That is why there is a need for all democratic political forces and civil society to get united," Poroshenko said.

  11. KARACHI: Mercury may rise more than 40 degrees Celsius in the metropolis on Tuesday and Wednesday, according to the prediction of the Meteorological Department. ?Due to the developing low pressure area off Indian Coast in the Arabian Sea, the sea breeze along Pakistani Coastline will weaken. Under such conditions, temperatures along Pakistan coastal areas including Karachi will gradually increase during the next 4-5 days resulting into moderate heat wave conditions,? read the press statement. The experts advised to remain cautious in the severe hot weather. Officials advise drinking lots of water to brave the heat and avoid dehydration. It is, therefore, wiser to not go out during the peak sunlight hours to stay safe from a heatstroke. The use of ice packs, cold sheets, and wet towels is advised to beat the heat.
  12. It's been over four years since one of India's most destructive batsmen, Virender Sehwag, bowed out of international cricket. But after hammering the opposition bowlers all around the park, the former Indian opener seems to have found a new pitch as he continues to enthrall his fans with his ever-entertaining wit off the field. From unique birthday wishes or hilarious comparisons, Sehwag has continued to get the better of the opposition with a potent mix of fun, puns, sarcasm and also, what is now being labelled as, just simple 'Sehwagasm'. For a batsman whose fearless batting inspiring us all in his heyday, Sehwag seems to have adopted the same carefree approach on Twitter. And, his recent tweets that summed up his glorious career are a testimony to that. It is not always the words we say, that have the biggest effect. It is usually how we say them. — Virender Sehwag (@virendersehwag) October 6, 2017 Posting on the micro-blogging website, Sehwag tweeted: "It is not always the words we say, that have the biggest effect. It is usually how we say them". Similarly in cricket, it is usually not a poor delivery that has an effect, it is usually how we smash them :) — Virender Sehwag (@virendersehwag) October 6, 2017 He followed it up with another tweet that read: "Similarly in cricket, it is usually not a poor delivery that has an effect, it is usually how we smash them". Viru constructed an extraordinary career with a relentless quest, and a genius for boundary hitting. His uncomplicated approach - batting is all about scoring as many runs as quickly as possible - showed his sharp and street-smart cricket mind. With minimal footwork and maximum intent, he piled up over 17,000 runs in his international cricket career. What appeared risky to many was merely an opportunity for Sehwag in cricket - something his tweets highlighted perfectly.
  13. KARACHI: A contract was successfully reached with a Chinese company to clean Karachi?s two districts, Malir and West, it was learnt on Saturday. The Chinese firm would pick and manage solid waste in two more districts of the city with the aid of more than 200 machines. The ceremony of the contract finalization was held in the office of Sindh local bodies minister Jam Khan Shoro. The contract was signed by Sindh Solid Waste Management Board Director A D Sanjani, Chairman Malir district Jan M Baloch and Administrator West district Ghulam Fareed. According to the contract, the waste would be picked up from the districts on a daily basis. Following an agreement signed between a Chinese company and Sindh Solid Waste Management last year, equipment, electrical sweeping machine, dumpsters and heavy machinery reached Karachi through a Chinese Port. As locals fail, Sindh looks to China for help in cleaning city The contract included collecting garbage from houses to dumping it at landfill sites, as well as sweeping streets The agreement included three districts, Korangi, East and South in the first phase. Costing a total $9.65 million per year for district East since it produces around 322,357 tons of garbage daily, the contract for district South was estimated to cost $14.254 million, which generates 491,590 tons of solid waste. The seven-year contract included collecting garbage from houses to dumping it at landfill sites, as well as sweeping streets.
  14. A view shows pipelines at the Zueitina oil terminal in Zueitina, west of Benghazi, Libya, September 14, 2016. REUTERS/Esam Omran Al-Fetori, Files NEW YORK: Oil prices rose about 2 percent on Thursday as signs Saudi Arabia and Russia would limit production through next year pushed the US benchmark back above $50 a barrel. The news outweighed Wednesday?s US data showing record US exports and the return of production at a major Libyan oilfield. Brent futures settled at $57 a barrel, up 2.2 percent, or $1.20, while US crude rose 81 cents, or 1.6 percent, to end at $50.79. Russian President Vladimir Putin said this week that a pledge by the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) and other producers, including Russia, to cut oil output to boost prices could be extended to the end of 2018, instead of expiring in March 2018. Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak said on Thursday that Moscow would support new countries joining the agreement to restrict oil supply. The statement came as Saudi Arabia?s King Salman visited Moscow. ?Putin and Salman will most likely reach, but not announce, an agreement to extend the OPEC/non-OPEC production deal, though with a commitment to taper the cuts,? said Eurasia Group. President Donald Trump was expected to announce soon that he will decertify the landmark international deal to curb Iran?s nuclear program, a senior administration official said on Thursday, in a step that could lead to renewed US sanctions against Tehran and could limit Iranian sales of oil. ?It would make it difficult for barrels to be transacted through US dollars,? Bernadette Johnson ? the vice president of market intelligence at in Denver ? said. ?A lot would continue to flow, but that?s probably a million barrels that is at risk.? With the increase in prices to above $50, producers have started hedging more heavily, said Johnson. That would buffer drillers against losses if the price were to decline, which may spur more US production ? partially offsetting the OPEC-led deal to cut supply by about 1.8 million barrels per day (BPD). Other factors also weighed on oil prices, including the return to production of Libya?s Sharara oilfield on Wednesday after an armed brigade forced a two-day shutdown. US crude oil exports jumped to 1.98 million BPD last week, surpassing the 1.5 million BPD record set the previous week, the Energy Information Administration said. The increase followed a widening of the discount for US crude against Brent, making US oil attractive on world markets.
  15. KARACHI: A suspected terrorist was killed in a police encounter late Wednesday night in North Karachi, Geo News reported.

  19. FILE PHOTO: Vietnamese Doan Thi Huong (L) and Indonesian Siti Aishah are seen in this combination picture from undated handouts released by the Royal Malaysia Police to Reuters on February 19, 2017. Royal Malaysia Police/Handout via Reuters KUALA LUMPUR: Two women accused of assassinating the estranged half-brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un with a banned nerve agent pleaded not guilty at the start of a high-profile murder trial in a Malaysian court on Monday. Indonesian Siti Aisyah, 25, and Doan Thi Huong, 28, a Vietnamese, are charged with killing Kim Jong Nam by smearing his face with VX, a chemical poison banned by the United Nations, at Kuala Lumpur?s international airport on Feb. 13. Police have also named four North Koreans as suspects in the case and an Interpol red notice, an international alert just short of an arrest warrant, has been issued for the North Koreans, who remain at large. Prosecutors said the four North Koreans helped the accused women carry out several practice runs in Kuala Lumpur shopping malls. ?The prank practice carried out by the first and second accused with the supervision of the four who are still at large was preparation to see through their common intention to kill the victim,? the prosecution said in its charge sheet. Defense lawyers demanded that the prosecution immediately name the four other suspects, who have also been charged, so they could prepare their case. ?The charge must be clear,? said Siti Aisyah?s lawyer, Gooi Soon Seng. Judge Azmi Ariffin dismissed their request. Both women wore bullet-proof vests as they were led into the court on the outskirts of the Malaysian capital. They face the death penalty if convicted. The two women nodded their heads when the charges were read out to them by two interpreters in the Shah Alam court on the outskirts of the Malaysian capital. The interpreters said both women pleaded not guilty. "Attacked from behind" The prosecution said their actions showed ?intent to kill the victim? by smearing his face and eyes with VX nerve agent, which a post-mortem confirmed had killed Kim. The women told their lawyers they did not know they were participating in a deadly attack and believed they were carrying out a prank for a reality TV show. The two women sat quietly during the opening day of the trial. Siti was dressed in a black floral suit, while Huong wore a white long-sleeved t-shirt and jeans. The courtroom was packed with embassy officials and media. Juliana Idris, who works at the airport, told the court a man later identified as Kim Jong Nam approached her and asked her to take him to a police station. Kim later went to the airport clinic but died there within 20 minutes. She said the man, who spoke English, told her he had been ?attacked by a woman from behind ... another one closed his eyes?. ?His hands were shaking a bit, I don?t know why,? she said. Police Lance Corporal Mohd Zulkarnain Sanudin, who was on duty at the Kuala Lumpur International airport on the day of the killing, said Idris had brought Kim Jong Nam to him. He said Kim told him a substance had been wiped on his face. Kim?s eyes were red and he could see some liquid on his face, Zulkarnain said. He also said the he had wrongly recorded Kim Jong Nam?s nationality as South Korean. ?The police report I made showed the nationality as South Korean, while on the passport, it was written DPR Korea, whereby I did not know what DPR meant. I was only sure that Korea was South Korea,? he told the court. DPRK is the acronym for North Korea?s official name, the Democratic Republic of North Korea.

  21. [embed_video1 url= style=center] MARSEILLE: A man armed with a knife killed two people at the main train station in the Mediterranean port city of Marseille in France on Sunday before being shot by soldiers patrolling there, local officials said. "Two victims have been stabbed to death," regional police chief Olivier de Mazieres told AFP, referring to the attack which occurred at 1:45 pm (1145 GMT). Local prosecutor Xavier Tarabeux said the knifeman had been shot by soldiers, while the Marseille police urged people in the city to avoid the area around Saint-Charles station. The deaths came with France still on high alert following a string of terror attacks which began in January 2015 when gunmen stormed the offices of the satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo, killing 12. The government has since launched Operation Sentinelle, deploying about 7,000 troops across the country to guard high-risk areas such as transport hubs, tourist sites and religious buildings. The attacks since 2015 have left 239 people dead, according to an AFP count before Sunday's incident. French Interior Minister Gerard Collomb posted on Twitter that he would travel to Marseille immediately.
  22. Dan Bilzerian's larger than life paints a rosy picture for his massive fan following. Lot of men envy him for various reasons and even resonate a ‘perfect' life with him. Hosting @cowboyscalgary on July 12 w my Eskimo bro @diplo A post shared by Dan Bilzerian (@danbilzerian) on Jul 10, 2017 at 2:05pm PDT However amidst all of this larger-than-life world that he has been building over the years, there have been times that his innocuous actions have met some ridiculous consequences. In an interview, he disclosed a rather dark tale of an incident which now sounds like it was a passing ‘oh my god' thing, but if you analyse it, it is pretty dark. Dan revealed that due to an overdose of Viagra and binging hard on cocaine and booze, he suffered two heart attacks. The surprising part is that he immediately thought that push ups were the cure! What's even murkier is the bizarre fact that he was only 25 years old. It's things like these which are learning lessons for fans who believe that celebrities have it all sorted, while the reality is that they are kinda messed up at a very basic level. Well, guess that even Dan Bilzerian's life comes with a "conditions apply" sign.
  23. SAN FRANCISCO: Uber Technologies Inc co-founder Travis Kalanick said he had appointed two new directors, a surprise move that publicly reignited a board battle over the role of the ousted former chief executive. Kalanick?s move on Friday sought to pre-empt a move by new Chief Executive Dara Khosrowshahi to restructure the board and gain greater control, a person familiar with the co-founder?s decision said. Uber said in a statement on Friday the company was surprised by Kalanick?s action. Company investors are divided over whether Kalanick should remain on the board and whether he should be allowed to name two other directors. Benchmark Capital, which had pressured Kalanick to resign as CEO in the wake of several governance scandals, did not respond to a request for comment. Khosrowshahi is scrambling to portray Uber as a reformed company that is turning a page on concerns including sexual harassment claims and a U.S. bribery probe. Investors have described diluting Kalanick?s power as a necessary step on the path to making amends. Kalanick, still one of the largest shareholders, said in a statement he had appointed former Xerox Chief Executive Ursula Burns and former Merrill Lynch Chief Executive John Thain as directors. ?I am appointing these seats now in light of a recent board proposal to dramatically restructure the board and significantly alter the company?s voting rights. It is therefore essential that the full board be in place for proper deliberation to occur, especially with such experienced board members as Ursula and John,? he said. He did not specify the proposals he opposed. Uber had nine directors before Kalanick?s Friday appointments. The person familiar with the matter said that Kalanick acted after Khosrowshahi had outlined a plan to directors, which is scheduled to be voted on October 3, that would give him control of four board seats in addition to his own on a panel that now has 11 directors. Khosrowshahi?s plan calls for transferring one of the two Kalanick-controlled positions to SoftBank Group Corp, which is considering an investment in Uber, the source said. Khosrowshahi effectively could put a person of his choosing in the other seat, as well as three other existing ones, according to the source. A third of directors also would be elected each year under the plan. Uber did not respond on Saturday to a request to comment about the Khosrowshahi plan. But the company said earlier in a statement that Kalanick?s appointments were a ?complete surprise? to Uber and its board. ?That is precisely why we are working to put in place world-class governance to ensure that we are building a company every employee and shareholder can be proud of,? the statement said. Yucaipa Companies managing partner Ron Burkle, an investor who has supported Kalanick, praised Burns and Thain as ?smart, high-quality people.? Division among Uber investors exploded in public in August, when Benchmark Capital filed a lawsuit to force Kalanick off the board and rescind his ability to fill two other seats on the panel, accusing him of concealing a range of misdeeds. Yucaipa and other Uber investors defended Kalanick and asked Benchmark to divest its own shares and step down from the board. A Delaware judge later that month stayed the Benchmark lawsuit and sent it to arbitration, pushing the dispute out of public view and delivering Kalanick a victory. Kalanick?s action on Friday could be subject to a new legal challenge. Benchmark or other Uber investors could attempt to block the appointments by asking the Delaware judge to issue a so-called ?status-quo order.? The judge last month did not grant such a request. Kalanick?s lawyer at the time told the court that Kalanick had not rushed to fill the seats. The New York Times also quoted Kalanick?s lawyer as telling the court Kalanick had the power to fill the seats under the pre-arbitration ?status quo.?
