The Home secretary also disclosed that security has been tightened at shopping centres amid fears of terrorist attack in the UK. The comments come after the charities’ watchdog said it was concerned that donors’ money to help refugees was being diverted to support terrorism. Mrs May raised the prospect of the Syrian civil war being use as a nursery for a new generation of terrorists on BBC1’s Andrew Marr programme. She said: “What we have seen for some time now, is that a number of British people travelling out to Somalia, we’re now seeing people travel out to Syria.

Posted By: Attercliffe- 10/6/2013 7:57:38 AM     Post Reply
Disarmament experts from the international chemical weapons watchdog have begun destroying Syria´s arsenal, a monitoring official has said. The operation is being carried out by a team from the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW). The mission was established under a UN resolution passed after agreement between Russia and the US. The resolution followed international outrage at a chemical weapons attack near Damascus in August. In an interim report, UN chemical weapons inspectors confirmed that the nerve agent sarin had been used in the attack in Ghouta on the outskirts of the city on August 21. It was estimated to have killed

Doctors ordered a month´s rest for Argentina´s president on Saturday after they found blood on her brain due to a head injury. President Cristina Fernandez´s spokesman said she had suffered a previously undisclosed ´skull trauma´ on August 12. No details about this injury were officially released Saturday night. Spokesman Alfredo Scoccimarro read a statement signed by the president´s doctors saying they did a CAT scan of her brain after the August head injury and found nothing wrong, and that afterward she suffered no symptoms. But he said problems surfaced Saturday after Fernandez, 60, went to a hospital for checks on

A Navy SEAL team carried out a daring pre-dawn raid in Somalia targeting an al-Shabaab leader on the same day as a separate raid which resulted in the capture of a senior al-Qaeda operative in Libya. The Pentagon has confirmed SEALS stormed the Somali coastal town of Baraawe, but it is not yet clear whether the commandos killed the ´high-profile´ target they were aiming for in retaliation to the Kenyan mall massacre two weeks ago today. In a separate special forces operation Saturday, commandos captured al-Qaeda terrorist Anas al-Libi off the streets of Tripoli, Libya. Anas al-Libi was wanted for a series

The strike was carried out in the town of Barawe in the hours before morning prayers against what one official said were "high-profile" targets. [Snip] The foreign troops attacked a two-story house close to the beach in Barawe, battling their way inside, said Mohamed, who said he had visited the scene of the attack. Foreign fighters resided in the house, Mohamed said. Al-Shabab has a formal alliance with al-Qaida, and hundreds of foreign fighters from the U.S., Britain and Middle Eastern countries are known to fight alongside Somali members of al-Shabab.

Rihanna faced an extra- ordinary backlash last night after even her fans branded her latest video ‘obscene’, ‘vile’ and ‘pornographic’. Hundreds took to social networking sites to tell the singer that she should be ashamed of herself over the X-rated images in Pour It Up. They questioned whether she was fit to be a role model to her millions of young and impressionable fans. Campaigners also called for YouTube to ban the video, which has already been viewed more than nine million times since its release on Wednesday. Last night, Dr Helen Wright, a former president of the Girls’ School

The people living in potentially benefit-capped households were helped to find the posts by Jobcentre Plus over 18 months. In the same period, around 35,600 accepted an offer of support as they tried to find work. Capping benefits at £26,000-per-household will save Britain £110million this year alone, the Department for Work and Pensions revealed last night. [Snip] The cap, now in place across the country, limits benefits to £500-a-week for couples and lone parents and £350-a-week for single adults. This is the equivalent to average working household earnings. Next year and each year thereafter the initiative will save the country

Barack Obama strolled out of the White House in an unusual walkabout with Joe Biden, declaring "nobody is winning" from the US government shutdown. The photo-op was a clear attempt to clean up after a White House misstep in which a senior aide was quoted as saying the administration did not care how long the shutdown lasts because it feels it is beating up on Republicans. "There´s no winning when families don´t have any certainty over whether they are going to get paid or not," Mr Obama said, referring to the plight of furloughed federal workers. "Nobody is winning ... that is the

NORTH CHARLESTON — Moving slowly on a floating crane and a barge, two key parts for what will be the world’s largest wind turbine test unit arrived in North Charleston on Thursday. A four-story tall gearbox and a giant steel connecting ring in a mammoth box were brought down the Cooper River to Clemson University’s Wind Turbine Drive Train Testing Facility. The $100 million facility will be dedicated in November and the first tests of prototype turbine drive trains are expected in the summer of 2014, said Peter Hull, a Clemson spokesman. There are only two other such testing facilities,

Exactly 75 years ago, two very different politicians were basking in popular applause. On 4 Oct 1938, Adolf Hitler was paying his first visit to his new domain inside the crippled state of Czechoslovakia. The Germans of the Sudetenland turned out to cheer the man who had redrawn the map of Europe overnight, seizing a territory with over 3 million people. Meanwhile in London, Neville Chamberlain was sitting on the front bench of the House of Commons, listening to the debate on his agreement with Hitler. he series of deals known collectively as “Munich” abandoned Czechoslovakia to the Nazis by allowing

The Connecticut mother who was gunned down by police yesterday after ramming a White House barrier with her young daughter in the car thought President Obama was stalking her, law sources said today. Investigators have found indications that Miriam Carey suffered delusions due to a history of mental illness, NBC Connecticut reports. Last night her mother revealed the 34-year-old has suffered from postpartum depression since giving birth to her daughter Erica last year. These revelations are the first clues as to what led a seemingly happy dental hygienist to snap and drive her Infiniti luxury sedan 270 miles from her home in suburban

Tropical Storm Karen has formed in the Gulf of Mexico, and meteorologists expect it could be a hurricane by Friday--sparking hurried preparations across Florida and Louisiana. The U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami says the late-season storm formed Thursday morning. It was about 500 miles (805 km) south of the mouth of the Mississippi River and already had maximum sustained winds of 60 mph (95 kph). The hurricane watch was in effect from Grand Isle, La., to Indian Pass in the Florida Panhandle. A tropical storm watch also was in effect for parts of the Louisiana coast west of Grand

Some Catholic priests under contract or GS (general schedule) to the military are not allowed to offer Mass or perform weddings, baptisms, and other religious functions on military property during the government shutdown, and if they do, even on a volunteer basis, they risk being arrested, according to the general counsel for the Archdiocese for the Military Services, USA. About 25% of the U.S. military is Catholic, some 275,000 service members, but there are only 234-active-duty priests. To fill the gap, contract or GS priests are brought in. But under the rules of the shutdown, many of those priests cannot

National Park Service rangers are being ordered to “make life difficult” during the government shutdown, according to the Washington Times. After the shutdown began, park police have been barring tourists from a number of popular attractions nationwide, including the WWII memorial. Even privately-owned landmarks, such as Mount Vernon, are being told by the National Park Service to close their doors. The Times reported: The Park Service appears to be closing streets on mere whim and caprice. The rangers even closed the parking lot at Mount Vernon, where the plantation home of George Washington is a favorite tourist destination. That was after they barred

President Obama’s approval rating has dropped to one of the lowest levels in two years. Since the government shutdown Tuesday, Obama’s approval rating has slipped 3 percentage points to 41 percent, while his disapproval went up to 52 percent, according to Gallup’s daily numbers. Reuters also polled a 41 percent approval rating in the same time period. Rasmussen Reports said he had 46 percent approval, and Fox News recorded it at 45 percent. Gallup hasn´t recorded that low an approval rating for Obama since 2011. The pollster´s surveys in September showed 44 percent approved of the president’s job. The federal

Washington - President Barack Obama says that if he owned the Washington Redskins, he would "think about changing" the team name, wading into the controversy over a football nickname that many people deem offensive to Native Americans. Obama, in an interview with The Associated Press, said team names like the Redskins offend "a sizable group of people." He said that while fans get attached to the nicknames, nostalgia may not be a good enough reason to keep them in place. "I don't know whether our attachment to a particular name should override the real legitimate concerns that people

Via William Jacobson, NBC´s affiliate in Washington, D.C. reports that police ordered tourists and Vietnam war veterans who were visiting the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall to leave the memorial at one point on Friday. After one group of veterans went around the barricade, "the park ranger told them the wall was closed," NBC´s Mark Seagraves reported. "Later another group of vets showed up and moved the barricades. At that point, the memorial filled with vets and tourists. That´s when police came and moved everyone out."

According to Politico: Ted Cruz faced a barrage of hostile questions Wednesday from angry GOP senators, who lashed the Texas tea party freshman for helping prompt a government shutdown crisis without a strategy to end it. At a closed-door lunch meeting in the Senate’s Mansfield Room, Republican after Republican pressed Cruz to explain how he would propose to end the bitter budget impasse with Democrats, according to senators who attended the meeting. A defensive Cruz had no clear plan to force an end to the shutdown — or explain how he would defund Obamacare, as he has demanded all along, sources said. The

She’s reportedly waiting until 2014 before she starts thinking about 2016, but Hillary Clinton, according to one national poll, is your front runner for the White House — by a wide margin. And Elizabeth Warren is your fastest rising star. The former secretary of state and first lady dominated last week’s new Quinnipiac University survey, which showed her gobbling up 61 percent of support and beating any Republican challenger — be it New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, Kentucky U.S. Sen. Rand Paul or Texas U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz — by anywhere from 13 to 23 points. But no one in

ObamaCare is attracting lots of window shoppers, but not that many buyers. Figures from the handful of states releasing information show that only a tiny fraction of the people inquiring about President Obama’s controversial, government-mandated insurance have actually agreed to buy it since the policies went on sale Tuesday. In Connecticut — where ObamaCare was predicted to send prices for individual policies soaring — 498 residents had completed applications for coverage as of midday Thursday, out of 85,000 unique visitors to the Access Health CT Web site and another 4,000 calls to its help line, spokesman Jason Madrak said.

President Barack Obama, already embroiled in a battle over a government shutdown, jumped into another dispute on Saturday - a long-running fight over the name of the Washington Redskins NFL team. Obama said that if he owned the team, he would consider changing the name, which American Indians and others have long pilloried as racist. "I´ve got to say if I were the owner of the team and I knew that the name of my team, even if they´ve had a storied history, that was offending a sizeable group of people, I´d think about changing it," Obama said

She also went on a date with one of them, it emerged during a memorial service attended by about 500 people Saturday at the National Press Club for Thomas, who died on July 20 at age 92. As told by Suzanne Geha, Thomas’s niece, who presided, Thomas arrived in Washington in 1942, at age 22, shortly after graduating from Detroit’s Wayne State University.

Blocking access to trails and programs at South Dakota’s most popular attraction was one thing, but state officials didn’t expect Congress’ budget stalemate to shut down a view of Mount Rushmore. The National Park Service placed cones along highway viewing areas outside Mount Rushmore this week, barring visitors from pulling over and taking pictures of the famed monument. The cones first went up Oct. 1, said Dusty Johnson, Gov. Dennis Daugaard’s chief of staff. The state asked that they be taken down, and federal officials did so with some of them. The state was told the cones were a safety
