Ragging at UP college 150 freshers made to tonsure

DR Congo police officers make their debut on UN peacekeeping missions

Twelve officers from the Congolese national police force (PNC) are starting year-long tours of duty with the United Nations peacekeeping missions in Haiti and Côte d’Ivoire, the first time that police officers from the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) will serve under the flag of the world body. Two of the 12 have already begun work with MINUSTAH, the UN mission in Haiti, while eight men and two women – who participated in a handover ceremony in the DRC yesterday – are expected to head early next month for UNOCI, the UN operation in Côte d’Ivoire. The Secretary-General’s Special Representative to the DRC, William Lacy Swing, hailed the PNC for the initiative and voiced pride at taking part in yesterday’s “historic event.” Mr. Swing said “it is a strong signal to the world that Congo is in the process of regaining its proper place of leadership for the African continent, and in international affairs.” One of the officers departing for UNOCI, Col. Henrietta Kitoko, said it was a great joy to see her country “joining other countries in assisting the countries that have a need, that have problems and conflicts, like it was in my country. I’m very proud to represent my country as a police officer.” 31 August 2007Twelve officers from the Congolese national police force (PNC) are starting year-long tours of duty with the United Nations peacekeeping missions in Haiti and Côte d’Ivoire, the first time that police officers from the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) will serve under the flag of the world body. read more

Surge of bandit attacks jeopardizes food rations to Darfur – UN agency

23 January 2008Food rations to more than 2 million people in Darfur may have to be cut within weeks after a surge of bandit attacks this month against trucks carrying relief supplies to the war-wracked Sudanese region, the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) warned today. Food rations to more than 2 million people in Darfur may have to be cut within weeks after a surge of bandit attacks this month against trucks carrying relief supplies to the war-wracked Sudanese region, the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) warned today.Bandits have stolen 23 WFP-contracted trucks and abducted their drivers since the start of the month, the agency said in a statement issued in Khartoum, the Sudanese capital. Nineteen drivers remain missing.The latest attack occurred late yesterday, in a rural area of North Darfur near the Chadian border. The driver of the empty truck was attacked as he returned to El Fasher, the state capital, after making the day’s deliveries.Even before the spike in attacks this year, bandits have been targeting trucks carrying aid, with 13 such incidents – including three in which the drivers were killed – between September and December last year.WFP’s representative in Sudan, Kenro Oshidari, said there were grave concerns about both the impact of the rash of attacks on the civilian population of Darfur, already suffering from years of conflict, and the fate of the missing drivers.“Our main trucking companies now refuse to send in more vehicles because of this upsurge in banditry and therefore we have no one to deliver about half our monthly food relief requirement,” Mr. Oshidari said.“If the situation continues, we’ll be forced to cut rations in parts of Darfur by mid-February.”The contracted trucks normally deliver between 15,000 and 20,000 tons of food aid every month, about half of the total needed to support Darfur’s most vulnerable inhabitants. The monthly food ration includes cereals, high-nutrition corn-soya blend, pulses, vegetable oil, sugar and salt and provides a person with 2,100 kilocalories per day.Mr. Oshidari urged Sudanese authorities to ensure the safety of the major routes in Darfur, a vast, arid region in the far west of the country.“Without these deliveries, WFP faces a rapid depletion of stocks and the inability to pre-position food ahead of the rainy season, which is due to start in May.”In a related development, a UN-Sudanese Government committee agreed today to extend the moratorium on restrictions on humanitarian operations until January 2009.“The Government gave assurances that the NGO [non-governmental organizations] community would be able to continue their work without interruption and would facilitate resources at state level for the extension of visas,” the High Level Committee of Sudanese Government and UN officials established by the Joint Communiqué on the facilitation of humanitarian activities in Darfur said in a statement.The UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) also welcomed the news, noting that the NGOs implement numerous UN projects in Darfur, where rebels have clashed with Government forces and allied militia groups since 2003.More than 200,000 people have been killed and at least 2.2 million others displaced because of the violence, and a joint UN-African Union mission known as UNAMID is being deployed to quell the fighting and instability.Under-Secretary-General for Peacekeeping Operations Jean-Marie Guéhenno, who is currently visiting Sudan, today met with UNAMID staff in Nyala, the capital of South Darfur state. He also conferred with the state’s deputy governor and with representatives of civil society.Yesterday Mr. Guéhenno was in El Fasher for a meeting with the deputy governor of North Darfur. He also visited the nearby Zam Zam camp for internally displaced persons (IDPs). read more

Battle lines drawn as climate talks dig in

first_imgNo related posts. By Faisal Baatout|AFPDOHA, Qatar – Climate talks got down to the nitty-gritty in Doha on Tuesday as developing countries and the European Union staked out rival positions on the fate of the Kyoto Protocol.Separately, the U.N.’s Environment Program (UNEP) urged negotiators to heed the risk from melting permafrost, which could spew billions of tons of greenhouses gases into the air and accelerate global warming at a stroke.Pressing on the key issue at the 12-day annual parlay, which began on Monday, poorer countries called on the EU to shore up the Kyoto Protocol, a beleaguered and contested treaty on climate change.“Together we face a man made disaster of epic proportions,” said Marlene Moses of the Pacific island of Nauru, heading the Association of Small Island States, which are vulnerable to rising seas.“The Kyoto Protocol must not be an exercise in creative accounting or a public relations exercise,” Moses said. “Commitments must be real, and must deliver effective [carbon] emissions reductions.”The talks are taking place under the U.N. Framework Convention on Climate Change, an arena set up 20 years ago at the Earth Summit. Heading the agenda in Qatar is the future of the Kyoto Protocol, the world’s sole binding pact for curbing carbon emissions.The protocol, whose first commitment period runs out on Dec. 31, currently commits about 40 rich nations and the EU to an average five percent greenhouse gas reduction from 1990 levels.Developing countries say Kyoto is vital for meeting the U.N.’s target of pegging global warming to 2 degrees Celsius (3.6 degrees Fahrenheit), a goal that on current trends will be dramatically missed.Critics, though, say Kyoto is ineffective, as China and the United States, the world’s No. 1 and 2 carbon emitters, are not included in the binding targets. Securing a second round of Kyoto pledges would clear a major hurdle towards a wider, global treaty that would be sealed in 2015 and take effect in 2020. But delegation statements on Tuesday highlighted differences over how long the next commitment period should last and how big the carbon cuts should be.Moses said the post-2012 commitment period should run for five years, and rich parties should present “ambitious targets that are consistent with the challenge.”The five-year time scale also was backed by the bloc of Least Developed Countries, composed of the poorest economies.“The Kyoto Protocol remains the cornerstone of the international climate regime,” said China, speaking for the so-called BASIC group, which includes Brazil, India and South Africa.“We urge developed-country parties to Kyoto Protocol to raise their level of ambition in Doha, consistent with what is required by the science and their historical responsibility,”Chinese representatives said.But the EU stood by an eight-year commitment period and, in a veiled appeal to the emerging giants to do more, said the period should be seen “as a floor, not as a ceiling.”The 27-nation EU has unilaterally promised to scale back emissions by 20 percent by 2020 compared with 1990 levels, and extend this to 30 percent if other major polluters follow suit. No one, though, has taken up the offer.Along with the EU, Australia and some small Kyoto parties have said they would take on commitments in a second period, but New Zealand, Canada, Japan and Russia will not.The U.S., historically the world’s biggest carbon emitter, signed Kyoto as a framework agreement in 1997, but refused to ratify it after its rulebook had been agreed.Meanwhile, a report by UNEP warned that climate talks had to factor in the threat from melting permafrost, where vast quantities of carbon gases, from vegetation that died millions of years ago, are locked up in ice.“Its potential impact on the climate, ecosystems and infrastructure has been neglected for too long,” warned UNEP Executive Director Achim Steiner.Warming permafrost could emit 43-135 billion tons of carbon by 2100 and 246-415 billion tons by 2200, the study said.

Both were claimed by the Islamic State militant group, raising concerns of further attacks in the OPEC powerhouse’s oil-rich east. 5 things to look for when selecting an ophthalmologist Copyright © The Associated Press.

He disguised himself as a woman and blew himself up in the mosque parking lot after being prevented from getting inside.The Islamic State group had earlier called the bomber a “soldier of the caliphate” going by Abu Jandal al-Jazrawi, a nom de guerre suggesting he was Saudi.The explosive used in that attack was RDX, a military-grade compound that was also deployed in the al-Qudeeh bombing. That earlier attack killed 22 people, making it the deadliest militant assault in the kingdom in more than a decade.The Islamic State group sees Shiites as apostates and seeks the overthrow of the Saudi monarchy. While Saudi authorities have promised to crack down on the extremists, many in its hard-line Wahhabist clerical establishment also consider Shiites to be heretics.In a statement on the official Saudi Press Agency, the Interior Ministry listed the names of 16 suspects wanted in connection with the attacks and warned that dealing with them “will make the person accountable.”It promised a reward of 1 million riyals ($267,000) for information leading to the arrest of the suspects, 5 million riyals ($1.3 million) for the arrest of multiple suspects and 7 million riyals ($1.8 million) for thwarting a terrorist operation.

Moodys Cyprus vulnerable to major restructurings

first_imgCYPRUS is vulnerable to “major restructurings” of its debt over the coming years, Moody’s Investors’ Service has said.Financial news portal Stockwatch reported last night that Moody’s had issued a note which continued projecting Cyprus’ debt to peak at about 140 per cent in 2016, an estimate higher than that of its bailout programme.“…Cyprus’ very substantial economic and financial challenges threaten public finances sustainability and may necessitate further debt restructurings”, Moody’s was quoted as saying.Moody’s said the island’s economy would continue to contract with the recession continuing for another two years. It also said they had a “limited expectation” of offshore gas fields contributing to growth.Moody’s said Russia’s agreement to restructure its €2.5 billion loan to Cyprus saved the government some €160 million, an estimated reduction in interest expenses of less than 1.0 per cent of the country’s 2012 GDP over 2013-16.“Cyprus’ Liquidity Benefits from Russian Loan Restructuring, but Re-Default Remains Probable”, Moody’s said.“The Russian government’s loan restructuring agreement moves Cyprus closer to meeting the burden-sharing measures mandated in the adjustment programme underlying the European Commission, European Central Bank and International Monetary Fund (i.e., the Troika) bailout,” Moody’s said.Russia agreed in late August to reduce the interest rate to the loan, made in late 2011, from 4.5 per cent to 2.5 per cent until 2016, and to reschedule repayment from 2016 to eight semi-annual instalments of the same size from 2016.The decision reduces Cyprus’ financing needs in 2016, reducing the risk of a liquidity shortage immediately after the troika programme ends.But Moody’s added that troika’s adjustment programme originally assumed repayments of the Russian loan would take place later, during 2018-2022, a more favourable schedule than the one agreed on.You May LikeLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoGundry MD PrebioThrive Probiotic SupplementCardiologist: This Is What Happens When You Eat GlutenGundry MD PrebioThrive Probiotic SupplementUndo Pensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoCruise passenger airlifted to Paphos hospitalUndoRemand for pair in alleged property fraud (Updated)Undoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
