PROPHECY HAPPENINGS COMING TOGETHER NICELY AS THE WORLD IS IN MASS CONFUSION.AND FRIGHT AND CHAOS AND DISTRESS.
AMERICAN CITIZENS MUST DEMAND HITLER 2ND BIG FAT LIAR CLINTONS MEDICAL RECORDS BE REVEALED IMMEDIATELY-AS SHE IS BRAIN DAMAGED.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mYqt2cre90s (HITLER CLINTON BRAIN DAMAGED)
Hillary’s Clinton’s campaign is citing fake documents to assert that questions surrounding her ill health are “debunked” conspiracy theories.The problem with that narrative is that no serious commentator who raised questions about Hillary’s health ever used the fake documents as evidence.As the Washington Post reports, Hillary’s campaign sent reporters an article from FactCheck.org entitled “Fake Clinton Medical Records” which debunks the authenticity of a “leaked” document circulated on Twitter that claims to be from Lisa Bardack, Hillary’s personal physician.The document claims that Hillary suffers from a number of ailments, including “blacking out,” “uncontrollable twitching” and “memory loss”.The Fact Check article then implies that Fox News’ Sean Hannity began questioning Hillary’s health because of the information contained in the fake documents.This is objectively false.Not a single prominent individual who has discussed the issues surrounding Hillary’s health has used the fake documents as proof. – Sean Hannity never cited the documents. – Mike Cernovich never cited the documents. – Dr. Drew never cited the documents. – I never cited the documents. In citing the fake documents as evidence that the claims have been “debunked,” the Clinton campaign is building a classic strawman argument.A straw man is defined as, “a weak or imaginary argument or opponent that is set up to be easily defeated.”By claiming that the fake documents are the only evidence offered that Hillary has major health problems, her campaign is hoping to deflect attention away from the real questions, which include the following; – Why does Hillary have to rely on a “leaning stool” to be provided virtually every single speech she gives? – Why does Hillary have to be propped up by pillows at virtually every single public appearance she makes? – Why does Hillary keep having brain freezes where she loses her train of thought? – Why does Hillary keep having bizarre seizure-like episodes? – Why does Hillary keep having coughing fits? – Why is Hillary on 1960’s-era medication that has side-effects which include “severe dizziness” and “tiredness”? – Why is Hillary being medically aided by a strange Secret Service handler who now appears to have disappeared since we drew attention to him? – Why are Secret Service whistleblowers telling us that Hillary has major health problems if all this is just a conspiracy theory? – Why is the media, which obsessed about John McCain’s health in 2008, dismissing the entire issue as a “conspiracy theory” when 59% of Americans want to see Hillary’s medical records, according to a Rasmussen poll? The Clinton campaign cannot answer any of these questions, which is why they will continue to create fake media hoaxes to draw attention away from the real issues.
FBI documents viewed in secure areas of the U.S. Capitol-[Reuters]-August 17, 2016-yahoonews
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - FBI documents about the agency's investigation into Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server while secretary of state were being reviewed on Wednesday in secure rooms of the U.S. Capitol.Lawmakers and select staff from some congressional committees could page through the material, parts of which are redacted, in large binders labeled "secret" that the Federal Bureau of Investigation turned over to Congress on Tuesday.Republican lawmakers requested the information last month after the FBI recommended no criminal charges against Clinton."Last I heard, my colleagues had their turn with the documents at 1:30 p.m.," said a Senate Judiciary committee aide. "There's only one set of documents for all the interested Senate committees, as I understand it."She said those viewing the material were allowed to take notes. But if notes were taken on the classified parts, those notes had to be left in the secure area with the documents.Clinton has been dogged for more than a year by questions about her use of a private email account while she was the nation's top diplomat from 2009 to 2013.Republicans have repeatedly hammered Clinton over the issue, helping to drive opinion poll results showing that many U.S. voters doubt her trustworthiness. She faces Republican nominee Donald Trump in the Nov. 8 election.The FBI said on Tuesday it had provided "relevant materials" to congressional committees looking into the matter."The material contains classified and other sensitive information and is being provided with the expectation it will not be disseminated or disclosed without FBI concurrence," the agency said in a statement.Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, a Republican, said in a statement on Tuesday an initial review of the material showed most of it was marked unclassified.Grassley, who has called for unclassified parts of the documents to be made public, wrote on Wednesday to the Senate Security Office, which has custody of the documents, asking them to provide his committee with an unclassified version.Clinton campaign spokesman Brian Fallon in a statement also called for the public release of the documents, "rather than allow Republicans to mischaracterize them through selective, partisan leaks."The documents on the Senate side of the Capitol are under the control of the Office of Senate Security, Senate aides said. In the House of Representatives, another set was being viewed in a "Secure Compartmented Information Facility," an aide with the House Oversight and Government Reform committee said."Our investigators with (security) clearances have gone down there and looked at the documents," the Oversight committee aide said.It was unclear how many lawmakers had actually seen the material so far. Most members of Congress were not in town because of a congressional recess.The documents were made available to the Judiciary, Homeland Security, and Appropriations committees in the Senate, and the Oversight, Judiciary and Appropriations committees in the House, aides said.The Intelligence committees on both sides of the Capitol also have copies, so they do not have to join the line with the others.(Reporting by Susan Cornwell; Editing by Jonathan Oatis, Peter Cooney and Paul Tait)

CERN officials investigate 'spoof' sacrifice caught on video-[Associated Press]-August 18, 2016-YAHOONEWS
GENEVA (AP) — Officials at CERN, home to the world's largest particle accelerator, say they've launched an internal investigation over a "spoof" video filmed on its campus appearing to mimic a human sacrifice.Shot from a building at the European Organization for Nuclear Research, known as CERN, the video shows hooded people in a courtyard before the cape of one woman is lifted off her shoulders. After she lies down, a hooded person approaches and appears to stab her with a knife. An off-camera voice reacts with an expletive.On its website, CERN called the video "a work of fiction showing a contrived scene."Scientists pour in from around the world for round-the-clock work at CERN's accelerators around Geneva. CERN said sometimes accredited personnel "let their sense of humor go too far."
Cambodians ask spirits to help recover statues from river-[Associated Press]-SOPHENG CHEANG and HENG SINITH-August 18, 2016-YAHOONEWS
KEAN KHLANG, Cambodia (AP) — People in a Cambodian village held a religious ceremony Thursday to ask spirits to help them recover Buddhist statues that their ancestors said were buried in a nearby riverbed.Buddhist monks joined about 500 villagers in the ceremony by the Tonle Sap River, where divers have recovered eight small statues of Buddha and say they spotted another that is about 2 meters (6 feet) tall. They asked the spirits of water and earth to help them raise any statues still buried as much as 20 meters (66 feet) underwater.Ceremony organizers said stories passed down by villagers' ancestors tell of the statues being buried in the riverbed hundreds of years ago to hide them from marauders from other areas or neighboring Siam, now called Thailand."Not only me, but several villagers were told by our ancestors that those statues were buried several hundred years ago under the river opposite the site where we held the ceremony," said Sieng Chan Heng, one of the organizers.She said that when divers last month collected two small statues from the river, they also spotted the larger one, but were unable to bring it up. She explained that some villagers believed they were unable to recover it because they had not held the proper religious ceremony, which is Hindu in origin, a reflection of the diverse cultural influences in Cambodia."That is why today we did this ceremony and hope that the spirits of the water and earth that control the statue would pity us and grant us all those buried statues," she said.Senior Buddhist monk Duong Phong, who led the ceremony, said six more statues were recovered Thursday, and that divers also found clay objects used in everyday life presumed to be from the same era as the statues. All the materials are being kept at his temple, and the diving team of about a dozen people was to resume the search on Friday.The village, 40 kilometers (24 miles) north of Phnom Penh, is in an area that historians refer to as Longvek, the capital of ancient Cambodia after the Siamese sacked Angkor in the 15th century. The statues are believed to date from the Longvek kingdom.It is not unusual for valuable or sacred objects to be hidden in times of crisis, a practice that continued even in the 1970s, when the communist Khmer Rouge ruled Cambodia. Rumors of valuable buried objects sometimes set off frenzied treasure hunts.___Sopheng Cheang reported from Phnom Penh, Cambodia.

Spain's Rajoy gets mandate for coalition talks-By EUOBSERVER
17. Aug, 18:37-Spain's conservative People's Party (PP) has granted its leader, Mariano Rajoy, a mandate to hold coalition talks with the rival and centrist Ciudadanos party. Ciadadanos earlier vowed to back Rajoy for a second term as prime minister if the PP agreed to a six-point package of political reforms. The alliance would still be short of a majority in the parliament. The Socialists and left-wing Podemos refuse to back Rajoy.

Tusk and Merkel discuss post-Brexit EU By Andrew Rettman-aug 18,16-euobserver
BRUSSELS, Today, 09:29-EU Council president Donald Tusk is meeting chancellor Angela Merkel at a castle retreat in Germany on Thursday (18 August) as part of preparations for the Brexit summit in Bratislava.The evening dinner, at the Meseberg castle 65km north of Berlin, will take place without a media briefing and comes amid plans by the EU chairman to visit every EU capital over the next four weeks.He has already scheduled meetings in Luxembourg, France, Ireland, Malta, Spain, Sweden and the UK as well as the three Baltic states.At the heart of the discussions will be whether Europe should make another leap forward in integration in reaction to the Brexit vote, with further pooling of sovereignty on economic governance and immigration, or whether it should hand greater control to national capitals to avoid feeding euroscepticism.Merkel and her party, along with several central European leaders, have indicated wariness on further integration.But the Social Democratic Party in Germany's ruling coalition, as well as France and Italy, are pulling in the other direction. Italy is planning to hold an informal summit with France and Germany on the island of Ventotene next week to set out its ideas.The Bratislava meeting, in mid-September, will also discuss how to handle future relations with the UK.Germany this week indicated it is willing to grant Britain what it called a “special status”, indicating closer relations and more beneficial terms than associated EU states such as Norway or Switzerland.But Berlin, like central and eastern Europe, ruled out limitations to EU freedom of movement if the UK is to have access to the single market.According to a report by British broadcaster ITV on Wednesday, citing British official sources, that would not be acceptable to London, which is angling for control over immigration and curbs on its future contributions to the EU budget.Norway and Switzerland have to let in EU workers and pay into the EU coffers in return for market access but have no say over EU laws.The ITV report added that the UK minister in charge of Brexit, David Davis, is considering UK-EU relations on the model of a draft Canada-EU free trade deal, with preferential access to certain sectors of the single market only, while retaining immigration control.
1 And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
2 Son of man, set thy face against Gog,(RULER) the land of Magog,(RUSSIA) the chief prince of Meshech (MOSCOW) and Tubal,(TOBOLSK) and prophesy against him,
3 And say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog,(LEADER OF RUSSIA) the chief prince of Meshech(MOSCOW) and Tubal:TOBOLSK)
4 And I (GOD) will turn thee back, and put hooks into thy jaws,(GOD FORCES THE RUSSIA-MUSLIMS TO MARCH) and I will bring thee forth, and all thine army, horses and horsemen, all of them clothed with all sorts of armour, even a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords:
5 Persia,(IRAN,IRAQ) Ethiopia, and Libya with them; all of them with shield and helmet:
6 Gomer,(GERMANY) and all his bands; the house of Togarmah (TURKEY) of the north quarters, and all his bands: and many people with thee.(AFRICAN MUSLIMS,SUDAN,TUNESIA ETC)
7 Be thou prepared, and prepare for thyself, thou, and all thy company that are assembled unto thee, and be thou a guard unto them.
1 Therefore, thou son of man, prophesy against Gog,(LEADER OF RUSSIA) and say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech (MOSCOW) and Tubal: (TUBOLSK)
2 And I will turn thee back,(RUSSIA-ARAB MUSLIM ISRAEL HATERS) and leave but the sixth part of thee,(5/6TH OR 300 MILLION DEAD RUSSIAN/ARAB/MUSLIMS I BELIEVE) and will cause thee to come up from the north parts,(RUSSIA) and will bring thee upon the mountains of Israel:
3 And I will smite thy bow out of thy left hand, and will cause thine arrows to fall out of thy right hand.
4 Thou shalt fall upon the mountains of Israel, thou, and all thy bands,( ARABS) and the people that is with thee: I will give thee unto the ravenous birds of every sort, and to the beasts of the field to be devoured.
5 Thou shalt fall upon the open field: for I have spoken it, saith the Lord GOD.
6 And I will send a fire on Magog,(NUCLEAR ATOMIC BOMB) and among them that dwell carelessly in the isles: and they shall know that I am the LORD.
7 So will I make my holy name known in the midst of my people Israel; and I will not let them pollute my holy name any more: and the heathen shall know that I am the LORD, the Holy One in Israel.
MIGRATING BIRDS IN ISRAEL EATS HUMANS FLESH FOR COMING AGAINST ISRAEL-JERUSALEM
17 And, thou son of man, thus saith the Lord GOD; Speak unto every feathered fowl, and to every beast of the field, Assemble yourselves, and come; gather yourselves on every side to my sacrifice that I do sacrifice for you, even a great sacrifice upon the mountains of Israel, that ye may eat flesh, and drink blood.(OF RUSSIAN/ISLAMIC HORDES AGAINST ISRAEL)
18 Ye shall eat the flesh of the mighty, and drink the blood of the princes of the earth, of rams, of lambs, and of goats, of bullocks, all of them fatlings of Bashan.
19 And ye shall eat fat till ye be full, and drink blood till ye be drunken, of my sacrifice which I have sacrificed for you.
20 Thus ye shall be filled at my table with horses and chariots, with mighty men, and with all men of war, saith the Lord GOD.
21 And I will set my glory among the heathen, and all the heathen shall see my judgment that I have executed, and my hand that I have laid upon them.
22 So the house of Israel shall know that I am the LORD their God from that day and forward.
17 And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God;(AGAINST ALL NATIONS ARMIES THAT COME AGAINST JERUSALEM AND ISRAEL)
18 That ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great.
3 For out of the north (RUSSIA) there cometh up a nation against her, which shall make her land desolate, and none shall dwell therein: they shall remove, they shall depart, both man and beast.
24 I have laid a snare for thee, and thou art also taken, O Babylon,(AMERICA) and thou wast not aware: thou art found, and also caught, because thou hast striven against the LORD. (RUSSIA A SNEAK CYBER,EMP ATTACK,THEN NUKE ATTACK ON AMERICA)
Russia calls selective Baltic security talks By Lisbeth Kirk-aug 18,16-euobserver
BRUSSELS, Today, 08:58-Russia has invited experts from most Baltic countries, but not Denmark and Germany, for talks on regional security."I can confirm, that we have received an invitation and that similar invites were also sent to other countries - Poland, the Baltic states and Finland," Sweden’s defence minister, Peter Hultqvist, told Swedish radio station Ekot on Wednesday (17 August).Russia's deputy minister of defence, Anatoly Antonov, who is on an EU blacklist over Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, earlier told the Tass news agency that the meeting would take place in Moscow in September and that ”despite differences of opinion, Russia is ready for constructive conversations about common issues”.He said the meeting would cover the military-political situation in Europe, increased military movements near borders, and regional flight security.According to Nato, Russia has built up a force of more than 300,000 troops on its Western borders, together with new air bases, naval assets and nuclear-capable short-range missiles.In the two years after its Ukraine invasion, it has held dozens of unannounced military exercises, some involving movements of more than 100,000 soldiers at a time.It has also violated Nato states’ airspace in the Baltic region.Danish military jets, for instance, were activated 98 times to respond to Russian airspace incursions in 2014 and 2015.The Danish military has only once had to intercept Russian jets in Denmark’s air space since the start of 2016.But with Denmark not invited to Moscow, the Swedish defence minister told the radio station that he could not guarantee Swedish participation either."For us it is very important that the countries situated around the Baltic are acting collectively on this kind invitation,” he said.-United Nordic front on Russia-The Swedish and Finnish foreign ministers, who were meeting in Stockholm on Wednesday, also discussed the Russian initiative."I think in general these kinds of contacts and negotiations should be on a wider scale," Finnish foreign minister Timo Soini said at a press conference in Stockholm."Above all we'll discuss with other countries who received invites and decide what this is all about," added Swedish foreign minister, Margot Wallstroem. "We won't allow a wedge to be driven between countries."The three Baltic states, Denmark, Germany, and Poland are all EU and Nato members.Finland and Sweden are in the EU but not in Nato. They have started to build closer Nato ties as well as closer US defence ties since the outbreak of the Ukraine war, however.-Baltic Sea safety-Nato deputy head Alexander Vershbow wrote in the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, a German newspaper, on Tuesday that it was “hard to think of a period, at least since the end of the Cold War, when relations [with Russia] have been as strained as they are today”.His opinion piece noted that the last time Nato officials met their Russian counterparts, in Brussels in July, Russia had made a “welcome but narrow proposal on air safety in the Baltic Sea”.But he said the large-scale military drills and false claims by Russian officials must end for ties to improve further.

S. Korea holds largest artillery drills near N. Korea border-[Associated Press]-HYUNG-JIN KIM-August 18, 2016-YAHOONEWS
SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — South Korea's army on Thursday conducted its largest-ever artillery drills near the tense border with North Korea, but there was no immediate military response from the North.A total of 300 artillery systems deployed by dozens of military units along the border began firing shells simultaneously in multiple directions on Thursday afternoon, an army official said on condition of anonymity, citing department rules.He said North Korea's military did not show any signs of unusual activities in response.South Korea's front-line army units regularly conduct live-fire drills. But the number of artillery mobilized in Thursday's drills was the biggest ever, and the simultaneous shooting in all major front-line areas was a departure from previous exercises, the army official said.The border between the Koreas is the most heavily fortified in the world, and the two countries occasionally exchange gunfire along the frontier. Thursday is the 40th anniversary of a 1976 "ax murder incident" in which two U.S. soldiers were hacked to death by North Koreans during a border area clash over U.S. efforts to trim a tree.Thursday's drills also marked what South Korea describes as an artillery exchange between the Koreas in August 2015 following land mine explosions that maimed two South Korean soldiers.There were no reports of injuries in last year's artillery firing. Seoul said North Korea fired first, but North Korea denied firing and responded with anger.The latest drills came a day after Seoul said a senior North Korean diplomat based in London defected to South Korea. The announcement is expected to infuriate North Korea, which typically calls high-profile defectors traitors and accuses South Korea of abducting or luring its citizens to defect.
Massive dam project at center of China-Myanmar talks-[Associated Press]-NOMAAN MERCHANT-August 18, 2016-YAHOONEWS
BEIJING (AP) — Efforts by Myanmar leader Aung San Suu Kyi this week to bolster ties with her country's dominant northern neighbor China may hinge on whether she can resolve the fate of a massive, Chinese-funded dam project blocked by overwhelming local opposition.Suu Kyi was welcomed by Premier Li Keqiang at a formal ceremony Thursday at part of a visit that will include talks with Chinese President Xi Jinping. The trip ending Sunday is her first to China since her party won a historic majority last year.Now leading Myanmar with the title of state counselor, Suu Kyi is a Nobel Peace Prize winner who spent more than 15 years in detention, mostly in house arrest, under Myanmar's former military junta, which was supported for years by the authoritarian Communist Party-led government in Beijing. But analysts say Suu Kyi has shown pragmatism and a desire to re-order Myanmar's relationship with China, its top trading partner and a major investor, while also reaching out to the United States, Europe and Japan.In opening remarks in her meeting with Li, Suu Kyi said she hoped her visit would promote "feelings of friendship" between the countries.Key to both sides is the $3.6 billion Myitsone dam project in northern Myanmar, funded by Chinese power interests but suspended in 2011 by Myanmar's former military-backed president, Thein Sein. A spokesman for Myanmar's foreign affairs department said China was expected to raise the dam dispute this week.China sees the dam as an important part of a national strategy to reduce its reliance on fossil fuels and meet its targets to cut pollution. It has pursued a charm offensive in Myanmar partly to push for construction to resume.But opponents in Myanmar, also known as Burma, say the reservoir created by the Myitsone dam would create massive flooding on the Irrawaddy River, endangering ecologically sensitive areas and displacing thousands of people. They also question the previous arrangement in which China would take 90 percent of the dam's power, while nearly 70 percent of Myanmar has no access to electricity, according to the World Bank.The dam is one of several Chinese-backed projects stalled due to protests from Myanmar citizens newly emboldened to speak out following democratic reforms, part of a larger backlash against China's economic domination of its poor southern neighbor.Suu Kyi's government recently announced a commission to review all hydroelectric projects along the Irrawaddy. Zhao Gancheng, director of the Asia-Pacific Center at the Shanghai Institutes for International Studies, said that announcement might be a signal that a compromise was possible."To handle it well will help create a favorable condition for future trade and economic development between the two countries," Zhao said. "Otherwise, obstacles will emerge in attracting investment from China in the future and that is not what the new Burmese government and Aung San Suu Kyi want to see."Aaron Connelly, a research fellow for East Asia at the Lowy Institute for International Policy in Sydney, said Suu Kyi could offer an alternative plan that mollifies China and at least some of the opposition in Myanmar."That would be the question on the Myanmar side," Connelly said. "Is there something that can be offered that meets the expectations, but does not create a lake the size of Singapore on the Irrawaddy?"Suu Kyi remains an icon to many people in Myanmar, and that may give her the standing to seek a deal that allows the dam to go forward under different circumstances, Connelly said.She is also likely to seek more cooperation from China as her government begins a peace conference at the end of August with ethnic minorities from the region where the dam is planned, and may tie the two issues together, Connelly said. China has been involved previously in negotiations between the government and Kachin rebels, who have fought for decades in regions near the Chinese border."She constantly surprises in what she's willing to do in terms of political agreements that she's willing to strike, and because she's such a singularly popular figure," he said. "She can potentially make a deal here that would be very unpopular and bounce back from that."Beijing supports the peace process because "a politically stable and economically prosperous Myanmar is in China's best interests," China's official Xinhua News Agency said in an editorial Wednesday."Given the fact that a strong China-Myanmar partnership is important for both sides, it is welcome that Suu Kyi, a key figure in the Myanmar government and the leader of the ruling party, plays a greater role in helping secure a healthy Myanmar-China relationship," Xinhua said.China considers Myanmar strategically important as a gateway to the Indian Ocean and Bay of Bengal, and wants to secure oil and gas pipelines running across the country to the Chinese border.Along with stalled projects, friction between the countries has erupted over fighting between Myanmar's military and ethnic minority rebels along the border that has killed Chinese farmers and sent a flow of refugees into China.___Associated Press writer Esther Htusan in Yangon, Myanmar, and researcher Yu Bing in Beijing contributed to this report.

Quebec politicians cautious when questioned on possible burkini ban-[The Canadian Press]-August 18, 2016-YAHOONEWS
QUEBEC — It would be difficult for Quebec to follow the lead of the French cities that have banned burkini swimsuits, the province's international relations minister said Wednesday.Christine St-Pierre said the Canadian and Quebec charters of rights and freedoms would make it "very, very difficult to ban" the body-covering swimwear.While stating she didn't want to immerse herself in another country's debate, she acknowledged the issue is a "delicate" one."Do we tell women, 'stay at home, don't leave your home, stay isolated and don't go out?'" she said. "That's the question we have to ask."Justice Minister Stephanie Vallee, when questioned on the same issue, said she believes women have the right to dress the way they choose."People have the right to their beliefs and can dress how they want," said Vallee, adding that includes those who dress "a bit more shockingly as well."Vallee said she doesn't believe burkinis — whose name combines 'burka' and 'bikini' — are common in Quebec. The swim garment covers the legs, arms and torso and also includes a veil.In June 2015, Vallee tabled the province's state neutrality bill, which would ban face coverings for anyone giving or receiving government services.The previous Parti Quebecois government had gone further, calling for state secularism and seeking to ban the wearing of visible religious symbols for provincial employees, including hijabs, turbans, kippas and larger-than-average crucifixes.St-Pierre, a former minister for the status of women, said the government continues to stand behind its yet-to-be-adopted bill, which would ban face coverings in the government sphere."That's our position for reasons of security," she said.A member of the legislature for the right-leaning Coalition for Quebec's Future said she favours banning the clothing."It is a very serious symbol," said Nathalie Roy. "It represents hiding a woman's body. Accepting the burkini is admitting that a woman's body is an object of temptation and that it must disappear at all costs."The Canadian Press
Syrian planes bomb Kurdish-held city: militia, Observatory-[Reuters]-August 18, 2016-YAHOONEWS
BEIRUT (Reuters) - Syrian government warplanes bombed Kurdish-held areas of the northeastern city of Hasaka on Thursday for the first time in the five-year-old civil war, the Syrian Kurdish YPG militia and a monitoring group said.People's Protection Units (YPG) spokesman Redur Xelil said the air strikes had hit Kurdish districts of the city, which is mostly controlled by Kurdish groups, and the positions of a Kurdish security force known as the Asayish."There are martyrs and wounded," he told Reuters. The Syrian military could not immediately be reached for comment.The YPG controls wide areas of northeastern Syria, where Kurdish groups have established an autonomous government, exploiting the unraveling of central state authority over the country since the start of the conflict.The Syrian government still has footholds in the cities of Qamishli and Hasaka, both in Hasaka governorate, co-existing largely peacefully with YPG-held swathes of territory.The cause of this week's flare-up was unclear.Tensions erupted between pro-government forces and Kurdish groups in Hasaka on Tuesday, leading to the most significant violence between the sides since several days of fighting in Qamishli in April.Xelil said government forces were bombarding Kurdish districts of Hasaka with artillery, and there were fierce clashes in the city.The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which tracks the war using a network of activists, said warplanes had targeted Kurdish security forces' positions in the northwest and northeast of the Hasaka city.The Observatory also said clashes were taking place in a number of positions around Hasaka.Syria's complex, multi-sided war has created a patchwork of areas of control across the country, with parts controlled by the government, rebels, Kurdish forces and Islamic State.The YPG makes up a significant portion of the U.S.-backed Syria Democratic Forces (SDF), a Kurdish and Arab alliance that fights against Islamic State insurgents in Syria.Last week the SDF, backed by air strikes from the U.S.-led anti-IS coalition, said they had ousted Islamic State from the city of Manbij near the Turkish border after a two-month campaign.(Writing by Tom Perry and Lisa Barrington; Editing by Mark Heinrich)
UN Syria envoy pauses humanitarian task force amid fighting-[The Canadian Press]-August 18, 2016-YAHOONEWS
GENEVA — Frustrated and unhappy, the U.N. envoy for Syria abruptly cut short a Thursday meeting of its humanitarian task force because aid convoys to besieged cities and towns have been impeded this month amid a surge in fighting in the country's 5-1/2-year civil war.Staffan de Mistura hoped to ratchet up pressure on world powers — notably the United States and Russia — to help produce a long-sought 48-hour pause in fighting in the northern city of Aleppo, in the face of a recent government offensive. He said he suspended the weekly meeting of the task force after only eight minutes because dozens of U.N. priority areas for aid shipments haven't received any for weeks."Not one single convoy in one month has reached any of the humanitarian besieged areas — not one single convoy," de Mistura, who chairs the task force, told reporters. "And why? Because of one thing: Fighting."His office later clarified that some U.N. convoys had been able to reach besieged, "hard-to-reach" or other priority areas in the past month, but none so far during the month of August."I decided to use my privilege as chair to declare that there was no sense to have a humanitarian meeting today unless we got some action on the humanitarian side in Syria," de Mistura said. "What we are hearing and seeing is only fighting, offensives, counteroffensives, rockets, barrel bombs, mortars, hellfire cannons, napalm, chlorine, snipers, airstrikes, suicide bombers..."The only "exception" to the halt in aid deliveries over the last month has been in the eastern city of Deir El-Zour, which has received a total of 100 airdrops from the U.N.'s World Food Program, he said. Those airdrops have been aimed to help 100,000 people holed up in areas controlled by Syrian President Bashar Assad's forces, amid a siege on the city by the radical Islamic State group.De Mistura said he nevertheless plans to reconvene the humanitarian task force next week and believes the task force's co-chairs — Russia and the United States — still want a nonmilitary solution to Syria's conflict that has left at least 250,000 people dead.Jamey Keaten, The Associated Press
Chinese admiral visits Syria in show of support-[The Canadian Press]-August 18, 2016-YAHOONEWS
BEIJING — A top Chinese military officer visited Syria this week in a show of support for President Bashar Assad's embattled regime, official media reported Thursday, underscoring Beijing's backing of fellow authoritarian governments and concerns about the spread of religious militancy.Rear Adm. Guan Youfei met on Sunday with Syrian Defence Minister Fahd Jassem al-Freij in Damascus, the Xinhua News Agency said. He also met the following day with a Russian general who is co-ordinating his country's military assistance to Assad's fight against armed opposition groups, the agency said.Xinhua said Guan expressed China's willingness to boost military co-operation with Syria, while the newspaper Global Times cited the Chinese Defence Ministry as saying that both sides agreed to expand personnel training and humanitarian aid via the Chinese military.The Chinese military "is willing to strengthen co-operation with its Syrian counterparts," it quoted the ministry as saying.Guan is head of the Office for International Military Cooperation under the Central Military Commission that oversees China's 2.3 million-member armed forces.While China has followed Russia's approach in backing Assad, it hasn't directly contributed forces in keeping with its policy of opposing outside intervention in domestic conflicts. During the early months of the 5-year-old civil war, China joined Russia in blocking motions at the United Nations calling for Assad to work for a resolution of the conflict.Despite that, Chinese military advisers are on the ground in Syria helping train soldiers in the use of weapons purchased from China, including sniper rifles, rocket launchers and machine-guns , reported the Global Times, which is published by the ruling Communist Party's flagship newspaper People's Daily.Guan's visit illustrates Beijing's enduring recognition of the Syrian government and insistence that the warring parties reach a resolution among themselves, said Wang Lian of the School of International Studies at Peking University.Although China wants to expand government-to-government and military-to-military co-operation , it's unlikely to provide substantial military support, much less send personnel to fight on behalf of the regime, Wang said."More likely, the Chinese military wanted to use Guan's trip to better understand the current state of the turmoil in Syria," Wang said. "In developing a closer relationship with Syria, one has to take into account the changes at hand in Syria and the region, including the fast recovering relations between Turkey and Russia."China's ruling Communist Party brooks no political opposition and is constantly on alert for signs of popular uprisings of the sort that flared across the Middle East during the "Arab Spring" that ultimately led to Syria's fragmentation.The government has also warned of the potential threat posed by Chinese Muslims returning to the country after fighting alongside radical groups such as the Islamic State in Syria and Iraq. Those allegedly include members of the Uighur ethnic minority, some of whom have waged a yearslong campaign against Chinese rule in the northwestern region of Xinjiang.___Associated Press researcher Yu Bing contributed to this story.Christopher Bodeen, The Associated Press
Bomb attacks kill seven, wound 224 in southeast Turkey-[Reuters]-August 18, 2016-YAHOONEWS
DIYARBAKIR, Turkey (Reuters) - Two bomb attacks blamed on Kurdish militants killed seven members of the security forces and wounded 224 people in southeast Turkey on Thursday, officials and security sources said, in a renewed escalation of violence across the region.A car bomb ripped through a police station in the city of Elazig at 9:20 a.m. (0620 GMT) as officers arrived for work. Three police officers were killed and 217 people were wounded, 85 of them police officers, Prime Minister Binali Yildirim said.Offices in the police station were left in ruins and filled with smoke after the bomb exploded in front of the complex, destroying part of the facade, CNN Turk footage showed.Less than four hours later, a roadside bomb believed to have been planted by Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) militants tore through a military vehicle in the Hizan district of Bitlis province, security sources said.They said the blast killed three soldiers and a member of the state-sponsored village guard militia and wounded another seven soldiers.No one immediately claimed responsibility for the bombings, but Yildirim said there was no doubt they were carried out by the PKK, deemed a terrorist organisation by Turkey, the United States and the European Union."The (PKK) terror group has lost its chain of command. Its elements inside (Turkey) are carrying out suicide attacks randomly wherever they get the opportunity," Yildirim told reporters in Elazig."We have raised the state of alarm to a higher level," he said at the scene of the attack, where a crowd chanted "Damn the PKK!"The PKK has carried out dozens of attacks on police and military posts since 2015 in the largely Kurdish southeast in its fight for greater autonomy for Turkey's 15 million Kurds.Elazig, a conservative province that votes in large numbers for the ruling AK Party, had been spared violence until now.Video footage showed a plume of black smoke rising above the city after the blast, which uprooted trees and gouged a large crater outside the police complex, which is situated on a busy thoroughfare in the city of 420,000 people.In Van province, further east, two police officers and one civilian were killed and 73 people were wounded late on Wednesday when a car bomb exploded near a police station, the local governor's office said in a statement.No one claimed responsibility for the attack in Van, a largely Kurdish province on the Iranian border. The Van governor's office said the PKK was responsible.The southeast has been scorched by violence since a 2 1/2-year ceasefire with the PKK collapsed in July last year. Thousands of militants and hundreds of soldiers and police officers have been killed, according to official figures. Rights groups say about 400 civilians have also been killed.On Thursday, PKK militants also attacked a police checkpoint in the southeastern town of Semdinli, near the Iraqi and Iranian borders, wounding two police officers, Dogan news agency said.More than 40,000 people have been killed in violence since the PKK first took up arms in 1984.(Reporting by Ayla Jean Yackley, Akin Aytekin and Tuvan Gumrukcu; Writing by Daren Butler and Humeyra Pamuk; Editing by Larry King)
Turkey seizes assets as post-coup crackdown turns to business-[Reuters]-By Ayla Jean Yackley-August 18, 2016-YAHOONEWS
ISTANBUL (Reuters) - Turkish authorities ordered the detention of nearly 200 people, including leading businessmen, and seized their assets as an investigation into suspects in last month's failed military rebellion shifted to the private sector.President Tayyip Erdogan has vowed to choke off businesses linked to U.S.-based Muslim cleric Fethullah Gulen, whom he blames for the July 15 coup attempt, describing his schools, firms and charities as "nests of terrorism."Tens of thousands of troops, civil servants, judges and officials have been detained or dismissed in a massive purge that Western allies worry Erdogan is using to crack down on broader dissent, risking stability in the NATO partner.In dawn raids on Thursday, police from a financial-crimes unit entered some 200 homes and workplaces after a chief prosecutor issued 187 arrest warrants, state-run Anadolu news agency said. TV channel CNN Turk said 60 people were detained.Gulen, formerly close to Erdogan and living in self-imposed exile in Pennsylvania, has denounced the attempted coup, when rogue troops commandeered tanks and jets to attack government installations. He has denied any responsibility.Police in Istanbul and 17 other provinces were searching for supporters of Gulen's movement, including prominent businessmen, suspected of belonging to and financing his organization, CNN Turk said. The Istanbul prosecutor demanded the assets of the 187 suspects be confiscated, Anadolu said.Turkey classified Gulen's movement, which espouses philanthropy, interfaith dialogue and science-based education, as a terrorist network in July 2015. It says Gulen's followers spent four decades infiltrating the bureaucracy and security forces in a bid to eventually take control of the state.-FORTUNE 500-Among the businesses targeted were two Fortune 500 companies, CNN Turk said, naming clothing makers Aydinli Group and Eroglu Holding, which both run large retail chains.No one answered calls to Aydinli, which had sales of 928 million lira ($317 million) in 2015, nor to Eroglu, which reported revenue of 490 million lira last year.Eroglu said it had no links to any company providing finance to Gulen's movement, according to the Hurriyet news website.Nejat Gullu, chairman of baklava maker Gulluoglu, was detained, his company said in a statement on its website.Gullu "would never stand with a terrorist organization or civic group that supports a terrorist organization," it said and expressed confidence he would be cleared of any charges.Earlier this week, police searched the offices of a nationwide retail chain and a healthcare and technology company, and detained key executives.Turkey authorities said 4,262 companies and institutions with links to Gulen had been shut. In total, 40,029 people had been detained since the coup attempt, and about half had been formally arrested pending charges.In purges of the military, police and civil service 79,900 people had been removed from public duty.Turkey also wants other nations to crack down on Gulen-affiliated organisations, including schools and businesses.European Affairs Minister Omer Celik called on Germany to shut businesses that have links to Gulen and are operating there, according to Wirtschaftswoche magazine.The EU and the United States have expressed concern about the scale of the crackdown, and human rights groups have said a lack of due process will ensnare innocent people who had no role in the abortive coup.But officials say they have to act fast to prevent further attempts by Gulen's "parallel state" to destabilize the government from within the bureaucracy and business community.It has demanded Washington extradite Gulen so he can face charges in Turkey, drawing a cautious reaction from U.S. officials who say they need to see clear evidence linking Gulen to the military putsch.A faction of the military attempted to seize power on July 15, killing some 240 people, mostly civilians, and wounding 2,000. About 100 people backing the coup were also killed, according to official estimates.Authorities are still searching for 137 fugitives, including nine generals and admirals, Defence Minister Fikri Isik told Anadolu. He also said the government is considering an extraordinary meeting of the Supreme Military Council this month as it plans an overhaul of the military to expand civilian control over Turkey's armed forces, which have toppled three governments since 1960.(Additional reporting by Daren Butler; Writing by Ayla Jean Yackley; Editing by Patrick Markey and Anna Willard)
Serbia intercepts over 3,000 illegal migrants in a month: spokesman-[Reuters]-August 18, 2016-YAHOONEWS
BELGRADE (Reuters) - Serbia detained over 3,000 migrants illegally entering into the country in one month, a military spokesman said, suggesting many were still trying to make their way along a Balkan corridor to the European Union despite border closures.Balkan countries along the route processed hundreds of of thousands of migrants over their borders last year, but clamped down in February to stop the mass influx and many migrants now resort to people smugglers to try to reach the EU.With a steady trickle of migrants mainly from conflict- and poverty-wracked areas of Asia and the Middle East continuing, Serbia on July 16 decided to form joint police and army patrols to intercept them."Since July 22, the Joint Force of the Serbian Army and the Ministry of Interior have uncovered 3,112 people attempting to illegally cross the state border," Defence Ministry spokesman Jovan Krivokapic said in a statement.Two people were arrested overnight in Serbia's south as they tried to slip 30 migrants across the border.After entering Serbia, most migrants become stranded as EU member Hungary to its north cut the maximum number of daily entries to 30 in June, creating a bottleneck.According to Serbia's commissariat for refugees, about 4,000 migrants were in the country on Thursday, with about three quarters of them in government-run refugee centers.The remainder either sought shelter in parks in the capital Belgrade or were awaiting entry into the EU in camps at the Horgos and Kelebija border crossings with Hungary.More than 100,000 people have entered Serbia en route to sought-after destinations in the EU so far this year. More than 650,000 people passed through Serbia last year.More than one million people fleeing war and poverty in the Middle East, Africa and elsewhere arrived in the EU last year, the vast majority asking for asylum in Germany.An EU deal with Turkey in March halted a huge migrant influx by sea from that country but an inward flow has continued by other means, mainly by sea into Italy from Libya.Almost 200,000 are bottled up in centers in Italy and Greece, unable to stream northwards due to border closures and largely out of sight, unlike last year.(Reporting by Aleksandar Vasovic; editing by Ingrid Melander and Mark Heinrich)

Tropical Storm Fiona getting stronger in the Atlantic-[Associated Press]-August 18, 2016-YAHOONEWS
MIAMI (AP) — The U.S. National Hurricane Center says Tropical Storm Fiona is getting a little stronger as it moves across the Atlantic.The storm's maximum sustained winds early Thursday have increased to near 45 mph (75 kph). Additional strengthening is possible Thursday followed by slow weakening by the weekend.Fiona is centered about 1,080 miles (1,740 kilometers) west of the Cape Verde Islands and is moving west-northwest near 16 mph (26 kph).
Louisiana death toll rises as flood waters recede-[AFP]-August 18, 2016-YAHOONEWS
Baton Rouge (United States) (AFP) - The death toll from historic flooding in Louisiana rose to 13 Thursday as receding waters exposed the extent of devastation in the hard-hit southern US state.Residents picked through what was left of their sodden homes and belongings, trying to salvage what they could before mold sets in.Rescue crews went house to house searching for victims of the floods, which blanketed vast areas of the low-lying state.As they did, the death toll slowly rose, with a spokeswoman for Governor John Bel Edwards confirming 13 deaths so far, up from 11 on Wednesday.While many areas were drying out, the National Weather Service forecast that all waterways would not fall below flood stage until as late as Friday."There's still record flood water," Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards told local news media Wednesday while touring disaster areas. "I don't want anyone to think that we turned the page."Twenty-two of the state's 64 parishes, Louisiana's equivalent to counties, have been declared disaster areas, designations that free up federal disaster assistance.
3 die in icy Mont Blanc avalanche; bodies dug out with saws-[Associated Press]-August 18, 2016-YAHOONEWS
PARIS (AP) — Rescue workers have found the bodies of three alpinists buried in an avalanche of ice and snow near a summit of Mont Blanc and dug them out with chain saws and a backhoe, a mountain rescue chief said Thursday.French Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve announced an investigation into the circumstances of the accident early Tuesday. Rescuers were only alerted to the missing climbers 36 hours after the accident.The bodies of two women, a 32-year-old Slovakian and a 33-year-old dual Polish-Briton, were discovered Wednesday night. The body of the 50-year-old German guide was recovered early Thursday, said Lieut. Col. Stephane Bozon, who heads the mountain rescue team in the French town of Chamonix.The three were climbing Mont Maudit, a summit of Mont Blanc, 4,100 meters (13,450 feet) high before dawn Tuesday when a tower of ice swept over them and they fell 150 meters (500 feet) to their deaths.Rescue workers had to use chain saws and a backhoe to free them from the ice, Bozon said by telephone. He said blocks of ice had fractured as the team climbed, creating an avalanche of ice and snow.A statement by the interior minister said 16 gendarmes, two dogs and a helicopter were mobilized to find the victims and recover their bodies.Bozon said his team was alerted only Wednesday evening to the missing climbers. Two other groups of climbers in the zone had said that no one was buried by the avalanche.A New Zealand guide was killed in the same sector by an avalanche of snow on June 20.Cazenueve said there have been eight fatal mountain accidents in France since last Saturday.
Lava from Hawaii volcano cascades into sea in vivid display-[Associated Press]-CALEB JONES-August 18, 2016-YAHOONEWS
VOLCANOES NATIONAL PARK, Hawaii (AP) — For the first time in three years, lava from a volcano on Hawaii's Big Island has crept down miles of mountainside and is dripping into the Pacific Ocean — where it's creating new land and a stunning show for visitors.Thousands of people from around the world have swarmed Volcanoes National Park by land, sea and air to view the lava. They're also hearing and smelling it.The billowy, bright-orange lava crackles and hisses, and reeks of sulfur and scorched earth, as it oozes across the rugged landscape and eventually off steep, seaside cliffs. When the hot rocks hit the water, they expel plumes of steam and gas — and sometimes explode, sending chunks of searing debris flying through the air.The 2,000-degree molten rock is from Kilauea, one of the world's most active volcanoes. Its Puu Oo vent began erupting in the 1980s and periodically pushes enough lava seaward that people can access it.Reaching the flow requires a boat, a helicopter or strong legs — the hike to the entry point, where the lava meets the sea, is 10 miles roundtrip on a gravel road surrounded by miles of treacherous, hard lava rock.Pablo Aguayo, of Santiago, Chile, took a sunrise boat tour of the flow earlier this month."It's pretty amazing," he said. "You start in the middle of the ocean in the darkness, and you end up in this beautiful lava falls."Aguayo said he could feel the lava's heat, and it smelled "super funny.""It's like welding something," he said. "We have many volcanoes back home in Chile. We have plenty. But nothing like this."His tour boat was a 42-foot aluminum catamaran operated by Lava Ocean Tours owner Shane Turpin, who said he navigates to within a few yards of the entry point for the best view.On Aug. 9, a second branch of lava started to spill into the ocean, giving Turpin's passengers a look at two lava flows about 200 yards apart."Just to have one drip (of lava) touching the ocean is awesome," Turpin said as people snapped photos of the dual flows. "But to get a show like you're getting this morning, well, it sets the bar pretty high for a second trip."Volcanoes National Park has seen an increase of about 1,000 to 1,500 visitors per day since the current lava flow reached the sea, boosting attendance to about 6,000 people daily, officials said.Park spokeswoman Jessica Ferracane warns the area can be dangerous.Hikers can get close enough that the soles of their shoes get hot. Also, the area is flanked by hardened lava rock as sharp as glass. Many people have suffered lacerations while trying to cross the jagged landscape, Ferracane said."Everybody wants to see the lava flow, but not everybody should be hiking out there," she said.Additionally, when the lava reaches the ocean, it reacts with the saltwater and produces harmful hydrochloric acid, which wafts into the air, said Janet Babb, a U.S. Geological Survey geologist at the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory.As it streams into the water, the lava creates a new landscape in a matter of moments. According to the U.S. Geological Survey, the Puu Oo flow alone has created about 500 acres of new land since it began erupting. The flow that began in May has created about 8 new acres.Most of Kilauea's activity has been nonexplosive, but a 1924 eruption hurled ash and 10-ton rocks into the sky and left a man dead.The 1983 Puu Oo vent eruption resulted in lava fountains soaring over 1,500 feet high. In the decades since, the lava flow has buried 48 square miles of land and destroyed many homes.In 2008, after a series of small earthquakes rattled the island, Kilauea's summit crater opened and spewed lava and rock over 75 acres of the mountain, damaging the nearby visitor overlook.It's hard to predict when the volcano will inflate or when the current flow will stop, Babb said. It could slow down any day or keep cascading into the sea for months.___Find more stories by AP's Caleb Jones:http://bigstory.ap.org/journalist/caleb-jones-Follow him on Twitter: https://twitter.com/CalebAP

PHELAN (United States) (AFP) - Weary firefighters Thursday battled a raging inferno that was threatening the homes of more than 82,000 people in southern California and sent flaming "firenadoes" tearing across the brush.Nearly 1,600 firefighters were fighting the giant blaze, but had only contained four percent of it, according to a fire service official.Dramatic local TV news footage captured from the front line of the wildfire in the town of Phelan showed tornado-like flaming vortexes -- known as "firenadoes" -- sent spinning into the air by the ferocity of the blaze."We have very, very dry brush -- thick fuel -- it helps move it (the fire) along very quickly," Lynne Tolmachoff, spokeswoman for the state firefighting agency Cal Fire, told AFP."It is very dangerous to the public and also to the firefighters."Governor Jerry Brown declared a state of emergency for San Bernardino County, just 60 miles (100 kilometers) east of Los Angeles, where the so-called Bluecut Fire was quickly growing, its cause still unclear.- 'Not worth your life' -The inferno began around 10:30 am (1730 GMT) Tuesday and has already burned through 25,626 acres (10,370 hectares) according to the multi-agency Inciweb information site.The size of the fire was down from the 30,000 acres reported earlier due to better mapping of the area, the Los Angeles Times reported.More than 34,500 homes were threatened and 82,640 people were under evacuation warnings."There is an imminent threat to public safety, rail traffic and structures in the Cajon Pass, Lytle Creek, Wrightwood, Oak Hills and surrounding areas," Inciweb said.A dozen fire trucks waited for orders to evacuate Paso Lane, located between several hills that were being devoured by flames, columns of smoke billowing into the sky."The whole community is being evacuated," said local firefighter Mike Anderson, who had been battling the blaze with his team for more than 24 straight hours."The fire is moving very fast straight through Highway 138, it is still growing."Chon Bribiescas of the US Forest Service said later that the evacuation area was being expanded, with the wind picking up and the temperature soaring to 100 degrees Fahrenheit (38 Celsius)."The fire is consuming 100 acres in a few minutes instead of 100 per hour," he told AFP, adding that many residents had decided against the best advice to remain in their homes."In California, we cannot force people from their homes, but that means we have firefighters that have to come back to the mandatory evacuation zones instead of fighting the fire."I try to tell people that there is nothing in your home that is worth your life."- Perfect conditions -At a gas station in the outpost of Pinon Hills, 10 miles northwest of the fire, Jeannine Yglesia was buying ice with her 24-year-old son."I have 17 to 18 people staying at my house now, friends and their families that have had to evacuate from Wrightwood," she said.Gail Nieto, a 65-year-old woman buying groceries, was forced to flee Wrightwood on Tuesday night."It's the fourth time in 30 years, but it's the fastest-growing fire I have ever seen," she said, trembling.Among equipment deployed were 152 fire engines, eight air tankers plus two Very Large Air Tankers (VLATs), and eight helicopters, including night-flying helicopters.The inferno has claimed one high-profile victim so far: the Summit Inn, an old-fashioned diner on the world-famous Route 66 that counted celebrities Elvis Presley and Clint Eastwood among its clientele.Several roads were closed while two firefighters were injured after they were surrounded by flames. They were treated at a hospital and sent back out to fight the blaze, Inciweb said.Elaine Bowder, 75, another resident living in the inferno's path, said she may lose her new house."We have our important things and we are insured," she said. "But we had to leave one of our cats at home.""I'm very upset. I'm very attached to her," she added, breaking down in tears.California is in its fifth year of a record drought, with parts experiencing a heat wave and strong seasonal gusts known as the Santa Ana winds, a recipe for perfect wildfire conditions.Thousands of firefighters are already committed to several other major fires -- north of San Francisco, in central California's wine region and in the scenic coastal area of Big Sur.
California wildfire brings destruction and uncertainty-[The Canadian Press]-August 18, 2016-YAHOONEWS
SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. — A ferocious wildfire had swallowed up many homes as it spread across 40 square miles of mountain and desert east of Los Angeles. Exactly how many, however, and to whom they belonged, remained uncertain.Firefighters were faced with the difficult task of tallying that damage while still battling the huge, unruly blaze.That left evacuees in a cruel limbo, forced to spend another night wondering whether anything they owned was still intact.They included Shawn Brady, who had been told by a neighbour that flames had raged down their street. But he was waiting for official word."What I've been told is that flames are currently ripping through my house," said Brady, a dockworker who lives on the outskirts of the evacuated town of Wrightwood with his mother, sister and a dog."I'm trying to remain optimistic," Brady said as he sat outside a shelter for evacuees in Fontana. "It's the not knowing that's the worst."San Bernardino County fire officials could only confirm that dozens of structures had burned, and that big numbers are likely."There will be a lot of families that come home to nothing," county Fire Chief Mark Hartwig said Wednesday after flying over a fire scene he described as "devastating.""It hit hard. It hit fast. It hit with an intensity that we hadn't seen before," he said.Firefighters had at least established a foothold of control of the blaze the day after it broke out for unknown reasons in the Cajon Pass near Interstate 15, the vital artery between Los Angeles and Las Vegas. The fire was 4 per cent contained on Wednesday.The California Highway Patrol reopened I-15 late Wednesday night, while the southbound side remained closed.Those assessing damage were also looking for dead and injured, but none had been reported yet. Cadaver dogs were searching the ruins for anyone who was overrun by the flames.Five years of drought have turned the state's wildlands into a tinder box, with eight fires currently burning from Shasta County in the far north to Camp Pendleton just north of San Diego.Residents like Vi Delgado and her daughter April Christy were also among those wondering whether their home was intact, though they had found out that their pets and the shelter animals they take care of had been saved. They had been through earlier wildfires, but nothing like this one."No joke, we were literally being chased by the fire," Christy said in a voice choked with emotion in a minivan outside the Fontana evacuation centre . "You've got flames on the side of you. You've got flames behind you."More than 34,000 homes and about 82,000 people were under evacuation warnings as firefighters concentrated their efforts on saving homes in the mountain communities of Lytle Creek, Wrightwood and Phelan. They implored residents not to think twice if told to leave, but it appears many were staying."From reports that we were hearing, possibly up to half didn't leave," said Lyn Sieliet, a U.S. Forest Service spokeswoman."It does change the way that we can fight fire," she added, "Now we have to worry about the people in there as well as trying to protect the structures and trying to build a line of defence as the fire comes toward that area."A fleet of 10 air tankers and 15 helicopters and an army of 1,500 firefighters took on the blaze, many of them coming fresh from other wildfires around the state.Another large fire, north of San Francisco, was fading. The 6-square-mile blaze was 50 per cent contained after destroying 268 structures, including 175 homes and eight businesses, in the working-class community of Lower Lake over the weekend.Damin Pashilk, 40, is charged with starting the blaze along with more than a dozen other counts of arson and one of attempted arson in connection with fires dating back to July 2015. He appeared in court on Wednesday, but he did not enter a plea.___Associated Press writer Robert Jablon in Los Angeles and Olga Rodriguez in San Francisco contributed to this report.Christopher Weber And Christine Armario, The Associated Press

New Zealand launches water supply inquiry after thousands fall sick-[Reuters]-August 18, 2016-YAHOONEWS
WELLINGTON (Reuters) - The New Zealand government launched an inquiry on Thursday into the contamination of a regional water supply that has left thousands of people sick with vomiting and diarrhoea.The outbreak of campylobacter bacteria, a form of gastroenteritis, has affected around 3,000 people, officials said.About half of those are in the town of Havelock North on New Zealand's North Island, about 250 km (155 miles) northeast of the capital Wellington, where schools have been closed and medical facilities overloaded."The situation in Havelock North is concerning," Minister for Health Jonathan Coleman said in a statement. "It is important that the public has confidence in their water supply."Such outbreaks are rare in New Zealand, where tap water is usually safe to drink. Officials said chlorine was being hastily added to the water supply for North Havelock and the surrounding region.New Zealand touts its clean, green image abroad under a "100 percent pure" campaign to attract tourists, as well as to highlight its food and water safety as a hallmark of its premium export products.The government said the investigation into the incident would focus on the causes of outbreak and the response.(Reporting by Charlotte Greenfield; Editing by Paul Tait)
