IT WAS EXACTLY 3 YEARS YESTERDAY WHEN MH370 DISAPPEARED FROM A MUSLIM SUICIDE ALU-AK-BAR INFIDEL KILL MISSION SOMEWHERE ON EARTH.

Australia, Malaysia hope MH370 will be found one day-[Associated Press]-ROD McGUIRK-YAHOONEWS-March 8, 2017

CANBERRA, Australia (AP) — The Australian government minister in charge of the suspended seabed search for the Malaysia Airlines jet told victims' families and friends at an anniversary church service on Wednesday that he remained hopeful that Flight 370 would be found."While to date we have been unsuccessful, we remain hopeful that at some stage in the future, there will be a breakthrough, the aircraft will be found, and we will be able to answer more of your questions," said Darren Chester, minister for infrastructure and transport.The Malaysian government said that although Australia, Malaysia and China in January suspended the sonar search for the airliner after a sweep of 120,000 square kilometers (46,000 square miles) of the Indian Ocean, "we remain ever hopeful that we will be able to find the answers we seek when the credible evidence becomes available."Chester and Angus Houston, the former Australian defense chief who coordinated the early months of the search efforts, were among around 100 who attended the private ceremony at St. John's Anglican Cathedral in the east city of Brisbane to mark the third anniversary of the mysterious tragedy.Several victims and relatives of the 239 passengers and crew aboard the Boeing 777, which flew far off course during a flight from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, to Beijing on March 8, 2014, live in or near Brisbane.Chester told the congregation that included families of New Zealand victim Paul Weeks, and Australians Robert and Catherine Lawton and Rodney and Mary Burrows that searchers had tried their best to end the uncertainty surrounding the crash. He also said that a memorial to the lost passengers and crew would be erected in the west coast city of Perth, which had been a base for Indian Ocean air and sea search crews.Chester said before the service that he understood the frustration that many would feel on the anniversary of the tragedy that there was no longer an active search for the crash site.Jeanette Maguire, sister of passenger Catherine Lawton, said the relatives appreciated that the Australian government had invited them to such a memorial service."The government didn't have to do that and it was very special that they wanted to do something to ensure our families didn't feel forgotten," Maguire said.Chester declined to comment on a suggestion by some relatives of raising funds to continue a private search of the ocean floor."I'm not going to offer advice to those who want to fund-raise privately to extend the search, but from the Australians government's perspective, the search remains suspended," Chester told The Associated Press.Australia's prime minister at the time of the tragedy, Tony Abbott, said in a newspaper interview last month that areas north and south of the searched zone should also be examined."When you've got nearly 240 people missing, the greatest mystery of modern times, as long as there is any reasonable prospective place to search, you just keep searching," Abbott told New Corp. Australia.Abbott, who remains a government lawmaker, said the most plausible scenario was that a pilot had deliberately crashed the plane. A pilot could have flown the plane further south than the area searched, Abbott said. Abbott had not responded by Wednesday to a request for comment.A lawsuit filed in the United States on behalf of the families of 44 people on board Flight 370 alleges a series of catastrophic electrical and other failures may have led to the crash.The lawsuit, filed Friday against Boeing in U.S. District Court in South Carolina, names seven malfunctions, from an electrical fire to depressurization of the plane's cabin, that could have led to the crew losing consciousness, the plane's transponder stopping its transmission and the plane flying undetected until it crashed after running out of fuel.

Australian service marks third anniversary of MH370 tragedy-[The Canadian Press]-YAHOONEWS-March 7, 2017

CANBERRA, Australia — The Australian government minister in charge of the suspended seabed search for the Malaysia Airlines jet told victims' families and friends at an anniversary church service on Wednesday that he remained hopeful that Flight 370 would be found.Darren Chester, minister for infrastructure and transport, and Angus Houston, the former Australian defence chief who co-ordinated the early months of the search efforts, were among around 100 who attended the private ceremony at St. John's Anglican Cathedral in the east city of Brisbane to mark the third anniversary of the mysterious tragedy.Several victims and relatives of the 239 passengers and crew aboard the Boeing 777 live in or near Brisbane.Chester told the congregation that included families of New Zealand victim Paul Weeks, and Australians Robert and Catherine Lawton and Rodney and Mary Burrows that searchers had tried their best to end the uncertainty surrounding the crash."While to date we have been unsuccessful, we remain hopeful that at some stage in the future, there will be a breakthrough, the aircraft will be found, and we will be able to answer more of your questions," Chester said.He told the gathering that included diplomats from Malaysia, China and New Zealand that a memorial to the lost passengers and crew would be erected in the west coast city of Perth which had been a base for Indian Ocean air and sea search crews.Chester said before the service that he understood the frustration that many would feel on the anniversary of the tragedy that there was no longer an active search for the crash site.Australia, Malaysia and China in January suspended the sonar search for the airliner after a sweep of 120,000 square kilometres (46,000 square miles) of the Indian Ocean southwest of Australia failed to find any trace. The airliner for unknown reasons flew far off course during a flight from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, to Beijing on March 8, 2014.Chester declined to comment on a suggestion by some relatives of raising funds to continue a private search of the ocean floor."I'm not going to offer advice to those who want to fundraise privately to extend the search, but from the Australians government's perspective, the search remains suspended," Chester told the AP.Australia's prime minister at the time of the tragedy, Tony Abbott, said in a newspaper interview last month that areas north and south of the searched zone should also be examined."When you've got nearly 240 people missing, the greatest mystery of modern times, as long as there is any reasonable prospective place to search, you just keep searching," Abbott told New Corp.

As North Korea missile threat grows, Japan lawmakers argue for first strike options-[Reuters]-By Tim Kelly and Nobuhiro Kubo-YAHOONEWS-March 8, 2017

TOKYO (Reuters) - Rattled by North Korean military advances, influential Japanese lawmakers are pushing harder for Japan to develop the ability to strike preemptively at the missile facilities of its nuclear-armed neighbor.Japan has so far avoided taking the controversial and costly step of acquiring bombers or weapons such as cruise missiles with enough range to strike other countries, relying instead on its U.S. ally to take the fight to its enemies.But the growing threat posed by Pyongyang, including Monday's simultaneous launch of four rockets, is adding weight to an argument that aiming for the archer rather than his arrows is a more effective defense."If bombers attacked us or warships bombarded us, we would fire back. Striking a country lobbing missiles at us is no different," said Itsunori Onodera, a former defense minister who heads a ruling Liberal Democratic Party committee looking at how Japan can defend against the North Korean missile threat. "Technology has advanced and the nature of conflict has changed."For decades, Japan has been stretching the limits of its post-war, pacifist constitution. Successive governments have said Tokyo has the right to attack enemy bases overseas when the enemy's intention to attack Japan is evident, the threat is imminent and there are no other defense options.But while previous administrations shied away from acquiring the hardware to do so, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's LDP has been urging him to consider the step."It is time we acquired the capability," said Hiroshi Imazu, the chairman of the LDP's policy council on security. "I don’t know whether that would be with ballistic missiles, cruise missiles or even the F-35 (fighter bomber), but without a deterrence North Korea will see us as weak."The idea has faced stiff resistance in the past but the latest round of North Korean tests means Japan may move more swiftly to enact a tougher defense policy.“We have already done the ground work on how we could acquire a strike capability,” said a source with knowledge of Japan's military planning. He asked not to be identified because of the sensitivity of the issue.Any weapon Japan acquired with the reach to hit North Korea would also put parts of China's eastern seaboard within range of Japanese munitions for the first time. That would likely anger Beijing, which is strongly protesting the deployment of the advanced U.S. Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) anti-missile system in South Korea."China has missiles that can hit Japan, so any complaints it may have are not likely to garner much sympathy in the international community," said Onodera.-GROWING THREATS-Currently, more than three missiles at one would be too many for Japan's already stretched ballistic missile defense to cope with, another source familiar with Japan’s capability said.One serious concern for Japan is North Korea's development of solid fuel systems demonstrated last month that will allow it to conceal preparations for missile strikes because it no longer needs fuel its missiles just prior to firing.That test also demonstrated a cold launch, with the rocket ejected from its launcher before engine ignition, minimizing damage to the mobile launch pads. Japanese officials also noted that the launch truck was equipped with tracks rather than wheels, allowing it to hide off road.North Korea says its weapons are needed to defend against the threat of attack from the United States and South Korea, which it is still technically at war with.Japan is already improving its ballistic missile defenses with longer-range, more accurate sea-based missiles on Aegis destroyers in the Sea of Japan and from next month will start a $1 billion upgrade of its ground-based PAC-3 Patriot batteries.Also under consideration is a land-based version of the Aegis system or the THAAD system.Those changes, however, will take years to complete and may not be enough to keep pace with rocket technology advances by Pyongyang, the sources said.A quicker option would be for Japan to deploy ground-to-ground missiles to defend against an attack on its Yonaguni island near Taiwan fired from bases on Japanese territory several hundred kilometers to the east.A missile with that range could also hit sites in North Korea.Japan could also buy precision air launched missiles such as Lockheed Martin Corp's extended-range Joint Air-to-Surface Standoff Missile (JASSM) or the shorter-range Joint Strike missile designed by Norway's Kongsberg Defence Aerospace AS for the F-35 fighter jet.But with limited capability to track mobile launchers, some Japanese officials still fear any strike would leave North Korea with enough rockets to retaliate with a mass attack."A strike could be justified as self defense, but we have to consider the response that could provoke," said another LDP lawmaker, who asked not to be identified.(Editing by Lincoln Feast)

Why North Korea wants a nuclear weapon-[Christian Science Monitor]-Ben Rosen-YAHOONEWS-March 7, 2017

North Korea’s successful launch of four ballistic missiles into the waters off northwest Japan on Monday was just a dry run of a nuclear attack against US military bases in Japan, state media in Pyongyang said on Tuesday.It's doubtful that North Korea could carry out that threat. But analysts say that if the country doesn't yet have a nuclear warhead small enough to fit on a missile, it is well on its way to developing such a weapon as well as the means to reach the West Coast of the United States.“They are going to get those capabilities eventually,” says Miles Pomper, a senior fellow at the James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies at the Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey, Calif. “It is just a question of when.”Recommended: Kim 101: How well do you know North Korea's leaders? But close observers also note it's important to understand what's motivating the hermit kingdom's quest for nuclear weapons. It is not necessarily to destroy its neighbor on the Korean peninsula, Japan, or even the US, they say. It's perceived as a path to safeguarding leader Kim Jong-un from suffering the same end as Muammar Qaddafi in Libya and Saddam Hussein in Iraq.“Above all else, North Korea's nuclear program is about security,” John Delury, a professor of Chinese studies at Yonsei University in Seoul, told BBC in September, the day North Korea performed its fifth nuclear test. “It is, by their estimation, the only reliable guarantee of the country's basic sovereignty, of the Communist regime's control, and of the rule of Kim Jong-un.”“So, until we can help Pyongyang find a credible substitute to guarantee its security, and give Kim Jong-un the kind of prestige that comes with being a member of the nuclear club, then we can expect more tests, more progress and more 'provocations,’ ” he said.In the test launch on Monday, three of the missiles, either Scuds or Nodongs, fell within the so-called exclusive economic zone, which extends 200 miles from the shores of Japan, and where fishing and cargo ships are active. The fourth missile landed outside but close to the zone.Jeffrey Lewis, director of the James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies in Monterey, Calif., says in a phone interview on Tuesday that the test launch was more of a military exercise, a bit of saber-rattling rather than a true weapons test."We think they know the missiles works," says Dr. Lewis. "Now, can the [military] unit go through the launch process?”Experts have debated whether North Korea possesses a nuclear warhead it can mount to a short or medium-range missile. Pyongyang has shown it has a nuclear weapon, testing it five times: in 2006, 2009, 2013, and twice in 2016. But North Korea’s claims it has miniaturized a nuclear warhead – mounting it to a short, medium, or long-range missile – has never been independently verified, according to the BBC.It’s less likely North Korea possesses an intercontinental ballistic missile that could reach West Coast cities such as Los Angeles, San Francisco, or Seattle. But Mr. Kim said in his New Year’s address that the country had reached “the final stages” of that weapon’s development.Conservative estimates place the timeline of the ICBM's development within three years. Others expect it to be tested and perfected much sooner. But they add its purpose is likely deterrence, not aggression.“When you look at their actions and their words, the North Koreans’ goals for their nuclear program are first of all to deter America from invading them,” says Joshua Pollack, editor of The Nonproliferation Review. “Their basic strategy is when massive American reinforcements show up in the region to launch the invasion, the North Koreans are going to bring out their big guns to stop that from happening.”This attitude is the result of years of bad blood between it and the US. North Korea’s interest in a nuclear weapon started after World War II. Eight years later, the Korean War ended not with a peace agreement, but with an armistice, technically keeping the Korean Peninsula in a state of war until this day. During the cold war, North Korea aligned with the Soviet Union and communist China, putting it at odds with the US. And in his 2002 State of the Union address, President George W. Bush lumped North Korea into the “axis of evil,” countries he said were involved with terrorism and weapons of mass destruction.At the start of the Iraq war a year later, then-leader Kim Jong-il disappeared from public view for 44 days, reportedly fearing a US assassination by Tomahawk missiles, according to BBC.Today, North Korea’s goal in advancing their nuclear program and developing nuclear-tipped missiles that can reach the US is about both ensuring it doesn’t suffer the same fate as Iraq as well as being ready if the US and South Korea turn a defensive military exercise into a surprise attack, explains Mr. Pollack.In an editorial in North Korean media in January 2016, Pyongyang alluded to this approach."History proves that powerful nuclear deterrence serves as the strongest treasured sword for frustrating outsiders' aggression," an editorial in KCNA reads.  "The Saddam Hussein regime in Iraq and the Gaddafi regime in Libya could not escape the fate of destruction after being deprived of their foundations for nuclear development and giving up nuclear programs of their own accord."In some ways, the younger Kim has been more aggressive than his father. Kim has already overseen more ballistic missile tests, including from submarines, in his five years in power than his father did during his entire 18-year reign, the Monitor previously reported. But some North Korea watchers suggest that up until the regime's most recent missile tests on Monday and last month, it has tempered its provocations, an opportunity they said for the Trump administration to engage North Korea in negotiations.But that window is closing, says Joel Wit, a senior fellow at the US-Korea Institute, part of Johns Hopkins University's Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies at Washington, D.C."I don’t want to say it’s closed. But it’s closing quickly," he says.

US, China lock horns on missile defense against NKorea-[Associated Press]-MATTHEW PENNINGTON-YAHOOONEWS-March 8, 2017

WASHINGTON (AP) — If China was hoping for a concession from the U.S. after recently suspending coal imports from cash-poor North Korea, it got the opposite.The U.S. is starting to deploy a missile defense system in South Korea which the allies say is needed to defend against North Korea. But China and North Korea view it as a threat.That adds to strains in the high-stakes relationship between Washington and Beijing weeks into Donald Trump's presidency. And it could further complicate cooperation between the two world powers in combating something they both oppose — North Korea's nuclear program.The U.S. military said Tuesday it has started bringing in equipment for the deployment of the Terminal High-Altitude Area Defense system, or THAAD. It says the system is designed to intercept and destroy short and medium-range ballistic missiles during the last part of their flights.The announcement came after North Korea on Monday launched four ballistic missiles into ocean off Japan — a show of force in response to annual U.S.-South Korean military drills. The allies say they are routine but Pyongyang views them as rehearsal for an invasion.China is concerned that THAAD has powerful radar that could track Chinese missiles and weaken its deterrence against the United States. Beijing said Tuesday it will take "necessary measures" to protect itself and warning that the U.S. and South Korea should be prepared to bear the consequences.China has already exerted pressure on some South Korean commercial interests, but it remains unclear how the deployment will impact ties with Washington, which insists China is not targeted by THAAD. U.S.-based experts say that Chinese concerns are exaggerated, if not entirely unwarranted."The question is whether China having expressed their grievances will be prepared to let this pass or will let it erode their relationship with South Korea and a meaningful capacity for cooperation with the United States on North Korea," said Jonathan Pollack of the Brookings Institution think tank.China proposed Wednesday that North Korea could suspend its nuclear and missile activities in exchange for a halt in joint military drills conducted by the U.S. and South Korea.Foreign Minister Wang Yi said in Beijing that the "suspension-for-suspension can help us break out of the security dilemma and bring the parties back to the negotiating table."North Korea is one of the main national security challenges facing the Trump administration. It may already have the capability to strike South Korea and Japan — and the tens of thousands of American forces there — with nuclear weapons, and could pose the same threat to the U.S. mainland within years.For China, the North's nuclear program poses a less direct challenge, but it could destabilize Northeast Asia and incentivize Japan, a rival of China's to acquire nuclear weapons of their own. And it could encourage the U.S. to strengthen its military posture in the region with systems like THAAD.In a sign of growing impatience with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, China announced last month it was suspending coal imports from North Korea in adherence to U.N. sanctions passed in November after the isolated nation's most powerful nuclear test explosion to date.But Beijing remains reluctant to exert too much pressure on its traditional ally, fearing that a regime collapse would lead to a unified Korea allied with Washington at its border.Joel Wit, a former State Department official and specialist on North Korea, said that the main factor in the continuing disconnect between the U.S. and China on dealing with Pyongyang is rooted not in differences over missile defense, but in a stalemate over how to approach the problem."The U.S. is always talking about increasing pressure, and taking military steps to protect its allies and itself," he said. "But the Chinese are always talking about need to reach out and talk to the North Koreans."State Department acting spokesman Mark Toner made clear Tuesday that the U.S. administration is not seeking direct engagement with a provocative Pyongyang.When Secretary of State Rex Tillerson makes his first visit to the region next week, with stops in Tokyo, Seoul and Beijing, he'll be seeking a "strategic coordination" to address the escalating threat posed by North Korea."Right now we are focused on sanctions, and implementing those sanctions to the fullest extent possible, but we're looking at other possibilities as well," Toner said, without elaborating.The THAAD deployment will hang over Tillerson's meetings with the Chinese.Missile expert John Schilling said Beijing's concern is that the system's radar could provide detailed tracking of Chinese long-range missiles and that could be used to alert U.S. missile defenses."This is somewhat exaggerated as a threat, but the full capabilities of the THAAD system are classified so it can't be entirely discounted," he said, adding that China could counter that by modifying their missiles with multiple warheads or decoys, a process that it has likely begun already."We have to consider whether this leads in the direction of an arms race between United States and China," Schilling said, "which I don't think anybody wants."

China urges US-N.Korea deal to avert 'head-on collision'-[AFP]-Becky Davis-YAHOONEWS-March 8, 2017

Beijing (AFP) - China on Wednesday called on North Korea to suspend its nuclear and missile activities in exchange for the US and South Korea halting annual military exercises, to prevent what it called a "head-on collision."Foreign Minister Wang Yi's proposal came after a cascade of events that has sent regional tensions soaring, including a volley of North Korean missile tests that flew provocatively close to Japan.China is particularly concerned over the deployment this week of an American missile-defence system being rolled out in South Korea as a shield against the growing North Korean threat.Wang warned of a "looming crisis" unless the antagonists cooled down."The two sides are like two accelerating trains coming toward each other with neither side willing to give way," Wang said at a press conference on the sidelines of China's annual parliament session."The question is: are the two sides really ready for a head-on collision? Our priority now is to flash the red light and apply the brakes on both trains."He proposed that North Korea "suspend its nuclear and missile activities in exchange for the halt of the large-scale US-ROK exercises," using the acronym for South Korea.Pyongyang blasted at least four missiles toward Japan on Monday, three of which splashed down in waters within Japan's Exclusive Economic Zone.Seoul and Washington have begun annual joint exercises that always infuriate Pyongyang, and the US has begun deploying its THAAD anti-missile system which, though directed at North Korea, is seen by Beijing as a threat to its own defence interests.Wang said China's proposal could help bring the US and North Korea back to negotiations on ending Pyongyang's weapons programmes.- 'Destabilising behaviour' -But it mirrors past North Korean offers that were rejected by the US, which said Pyongyang had no right to demand concessions in return for abiding by UN resolutions.Six sets of UN sanctions since Pyongyang's first nuclear test in 2006 have failed to halt its drive for what it insists are defensive weapons. It held its most recent nuclear test last September.Wang continued China's hammering of the US Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) system, which he said "undermines China's strategic security."North Korea has said its missile launches were tests for a possible strike on US bases in Japan.The UN Security Council on Tuesday strongly condemned the launches as a "grave violation" of its resolutions barring North Korea from developing missile technology.The Security Council, of which both the US and China are permanent members, denounced Pyongyang's "increasingly destabilising behaviour" and vowed further measures.An emergency council meeting has been called for Wednesday.US President Donald Trump reiterated Washington's "iron-clad commitment" to Japanese and South Korean security and threatened "very dire consequences" over the launches.The US State Department said Wednesday that Secretary of State Rex Tillerson will visit Japan, South Korea and China from March 15-19, his first trip to the region.His talks would focus on "strategic coordination to address the advancing nuclear and missile threat from North Korea".THAAD is designed to intercept and destroy short and medium-range ballistic missiles.The South Korean conglomerate Lotte Group has come under growing pressure in China for providing a site for the system, triggering concerns of a broader backlash in China against Seoul.Chinese authorities have shut down 39 of the 99 Lotte Mart retail outlets over supposed fire-safety concerns, a Lotte spokesman said, and Chinese travel agencies have told AFP they were ordered to stop arranging Chinese tourist trips to South Korea.North Korea is also squaring off against Malaysia over the assassination of Kim Jong-Nam, brother of Pyongyang's leader Kim Jong-Un.South Korea says the killing in Kuala Lumpur's airport using a banned chemical weapon was orchestrated by the North.Pyongyang has accused Malaysia of smearing its reputation with the murder investigation.On Tuesday it barred Malaysians from leaving its borders, prompting a tit-for-tat measure by Kuala Lumpur.Daniel Pinkston, an analyst at Troy University in Seoul, said the North's recent escalation of confrontations follows a well-worn playbook."There is a famous quote in their literature: if someone brings a pistol, bring a cannon. That's how they operate," he said.

Cyclone slams into Madagascar, at least three dead-[Reuters]-YAHOONEWS-March 8, 2017

ANTANANARIVO (Reuters) - Cyclone Enawo, a massive tropical storm packing winds gusting as high as 300 km per hour, killed at least three people when it slammed into the Indian Ocean island of Madagascar, officials said on Wednesday.Enawo struck the northeast village of Ampahana on Tuesday morning. It had since been downgraded from an "intense tropical cyclone" to a "tropical storm" with winds gusting at 130 kph, domestic weather bulletins said.Rivo Randrianarison, the head of the local weather service said it was one of the country's worst storms in recent years."Enawo is of the same intensity as those which have wreaked havoc like Indlala in 2007, Ivan in 2008, Gafilo in 2004 or Giovanna in 2012," he said on national radio.The government said at least three people were killed when Enawo first struck land on the vanilla-producing northeastern coast of the island.Most of the initial damage was concentrated in the town of Antalaha, the government said without providing details.(Reporting Lova Rabary-Rakotondravony; Editing by Toby Chopra)

Relentless blizzard pounds Manitoba for second night-CTV National News: Jeff Lagerquist, CTVNews.ca-Last Updated Wednesday, March 8, 2017 1:07AM EST

Manitoba remains in the grip of a massive blizzard for a second night -- a brutal blast of winter weather that has closed highways, knocked out power, and blinded drivers with extreme white-out conditions.Hundreds were trapped inside their cars along major highways, some buried in half-meter high drifts, unable to move until the relentless storm passes. Many were forced into survival mode, spending a frigid Monday night behind the wheel as temperatures plunged into the mid-minus teens.“It was just terrible. You couldn’t see anything,” Jean Pasche told CTV Winnipeg after spending the night trapped at the roadside along Highway 1.Firefighters used snowmobiles to bring food and gas to stranded motorists trapped along a stretch of the Trans-Canada Highway near Alexander. About 70 stranded motorists are preparing to hunker down for a second night inside a makeshift shelter at a local public school until roads reopen.The majority of the province remains under blizzard warnings from Environment Canada, with snowfall ranging from 10 centimeters near the Canada-U.S. border to as much as 60 centimeters in the northern regions.Powerful winds continue to gust up to 90 km/h. Visibility remains virtually non-existent in many areas.“It’s extremely challenging. You can imagine the roads are quite dangerous and treacherous today,” said Cpl. Carrie Kennedy with RCMP Traffic Services told CTV News. “It puts all our officers in danger when they are responding to the stranded people that are injured on the highways.”Manitoba RCMP has reported no casualties as a result of the storm, but a tow truck driver was killed in highway crash near the community of Esterhazy, Sask.Residents in the community of Alexander opened a school gynasium to house 80 travellers stranded by the winter storm."They are all being catered for, with lots of food," David Matthews, with the rural municipality of Whitehead Fire Department, said. "Some are sleeping in the school gym on air beds, mattresses and cots supplied by the community. A few others are staying in people’s houses."CTV Winnipeg weather specialist Colleen Bready says conditions are expected to improve on Wednesday as a high-pressure system moves into the region, bringing temperatures down with a blast of arctic air and reducing snowfall.The storm has knocked out power to thousands of customers across the province. Manitoba Hydro spokesperson Scott Powell said 3,600 customers in western Manitoba lost power in places including: Sifton, Souris, Glenwood, Neepawa, Grassland and Norfolk.Manitoba Hydro said about 466 customers in western region remain in the dark, noting most should prepare for the outage to last overnight.White-out conditions have left workers unable to reach powerlines across the province that have been damaged by lightening, fallen trees, broken poles, ice and wind.Motors are advised to avoid travel if possible, visit Manitoba511.ca to check road closures before heading out, an make sure they are travelling with emergency kits and blankets.Via Rails says trains between Winnipeg and Churchill have been cancelled temporarily.The Winnipeg Airport Authority says there have been some flight cancellations and delays at Winnipeg James Armstrong Richardson International Airport.With a report from CTV National News Bureau Chief in Winnipeg Jill Macyshon and CTV Winnipeg-Churchill blizzard, right here, right now.

Storms, tornadoes rake Midwest as high winds fuel prairie fires-[Reuters]-By Timothy Mclaughlin-YAHOONEWS-March 6, 2017

CHICAGO (Reuters) - A line of thunderstorms packing hail and isolated tornadoes rumbled across the Midwest from Oklahoma to Minnesota on Monday as wind-fueled prairie fires forced thousands of people from their homes in Colorado and Kansas.Police and National Weather Service meteorologists reported some power outages but no initial major damage from the storms carrying winds of 60 miles per hour (96 kph) and hail 2 inches (5 cm) in diameter as they rolled east.A tornado touched down in Smithville, Missouri, a Kansas City suburb, damaging 10 to 12 homes and displacing a few families but causing no major injuries, Police Chief Jason Lockridge said."Rain was minimal, it was just high winds and what was described as a funnel cloud," he said in a telephone interview.Areas of eastern Missouri and Iowa and western Illinois were under a tornado watch until early on Tuesday morning, the National Weather Service said.The storms were largely to the east of an area stretching from the Texas Panhandle into Colorado, Nebraska and western Missouri that was under a "red flag" weather service warning for fires because of high winds, warm temperatures and dry conditions.Twenty counties in central Kansas reported brush fires on Monday, some more than one, fueled by winds gusting to up 60 mph, said Katie Horner, a spokeswoman for the Kansas Adjutant General's Department.Ten towns were forced to evacuate residents because of the fire threat, including 10,000 to 12,000 from the city of Hutchinson, she said.Helicopters from the Kansas National Guard were being used to dump water on the fires, she said. "It's just a massive undertaking," Horner said.A prairie fire in northeast Colorado had burned about 25,000 acres (10,100 hectares), and officials said about 1,000 people in small farming towns were under evacuation or pre-evacuation orders.(Reporting by Timothy Mclaughlin in Chicago, Keith Coffman in Denver and Ian Simpson in Washinton; Editing by James Dalgleish and Paul Tait)

Texas wildfires kill four, blazes also hit nearby states-[Reuters]-By Jon Herskovitz-YAHOONEWS-March 8, 2017

AUSTIN, Texas (Reuters) - A cluster of late-winter prairie fires in the Texas Panhandle has killed four people, including three ranch hands racing to herd livestock to safety, while scorching hundreds of thousands of acres of grasslands, officials said on Tuesday.Wildfires stoked by high winds and tinder-dry vegetation also raged across Colorado, Oklahoma and Kansas, prompting thousands of evacuations and destroying numerous structures. One motorist, reported to be a truck driver, died in southern Kansas on Monday night from smoke inhalation, authorities said.NBC News reported a sixth fire-related fatality, a woman in Harper County, Oklahoma, who suffered a heart attack while trying to move cattle from harm's way. Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin declared an emergency in 22 counties hit by wildfires in her state.The highest death toll was in Texas, where a woman and two men died on Monday in Gray County. One victim was overcome by smoke and two died from burns, said County Judge Richard Peet."They were trying to move cattle away from the oncoming fire," he said in a telephone interview.A fourth person was killed in nearby Hemphill County, but the circumstances were not immediately available, said Phillip Truitt, incident commander with the Texas A&M Forest Service.He said one of the blazes had neared the Pantex Plant nuclear weapons facility, but the advancing flames were suppressed."The fire line next to Pantex is out cold, and we don't expect the fire to pose any threat to it," he said.The largest conflagration in Texas, dubbed the Perryton fire, spread rapidly on Tuesday to blacken nearly 300,000 acres (121,000 hectares) in the panhandle region and was 50 percent contained, authorities said. That fire destroyed two houses.Wildfires in northwestern Oklahoma prompted evacuations of multiple towns, according to state forestry officials, who said more than 10,000 acres (4,000 hectares) have burned.At least 10,000 residents in central Kansas were asked to evacuate their homes due to a wildfire in Reno County, where about 230 responders were on the scene, the county's emergency management agency said.More than 650,000 acres (263,000 hectares) have burned in Kansas, but the fire threat subsided on Tuesday with just eight counties reporting active blazes, according to the state's emergency management agency.Firefighters battling a 30,000-acre (12,000-hectare) grassland fire in northeastern Colorado extended containment lines to 80 percent of the blaze's perimeter on Tuesday, but five homes, 15 outbuildings and well over 200 head of livestock were lost in the flames, said Laurie Clemons, a spokeswoman for Phillips County.(Reporting by Jon Herskovitz; Additional reporting by Heide Brandes in Oklahoma City, Keith Coffman in Denver, Jim Forsyth in San Antonio, Kevin Murphy in Kansas City and Dan Whitcomb in Los Angeles; Editing by James Dalgleish and Bill Rigby)

Colorado wildfire burns 30,000 acres, destroys homes-[Reuters]-By Keith Coffman-YAHOONEWS-March 7, 2017

DENVER (Reuters) - A wind-driven wildfire erupted on the eastern plains of Colorado on Monday, scorching 30,000 acres of grassland, prompting the temporary evacuation of a small farming town and destroying at least three homes, emergency officials said.The fire erupted around midday east of the town of Sterling and quickly grew out of control as gale-force winds fanned the flames, said Marilee Johnson, spokeswoman for the Logan County Office of Emergency Management.Mandatory evacuations were lifted for the town of Haxtun late in the afternoon but some 900 homes remain threatened and those residents have been warned to prepare to flee should shifting winds drive flames their way, she said.The 30,000-acre fire was 50 percent contained, the Logan County Office of Emergency Management said in a statement.No injuries have been reported but three homes and a fourth structure were burned to the ground. The cause of the fire was unknown.Footage from a Denver television station showed rows of hay bales in the agricultural area consumed by flames. More than 70 firefighters from 13 agencies were battling the blaze, emergency managers said.The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment issued an air quality alert due to smoke and dust kicked up by the winds, warning residents to stay indoors."This is especially true for those with heart disease, respiratory illnesses, the very young and the elderly," the health department said in a statement.Interstate 76 was temporarily closed due to smoke and blowing dust but some county roads remained closed by nightfall, the state emergency operations center said.Schools in the towns of Caliche, Haxtun and Fleming were evacuated as winds whipped up the grass fire in the afternoon, the state office of emergency management said in a statement posted on its website.The National Weather Service issued high wind warnings or advisories for much of Colorado as a cold front blew across the state on Monday, with blowing snow making for hazardous driving conditions in the Colorado mountains.“Expect an additional 3 to 5 inches of snow combined with west winds of 35 to 50 mph and gusts to 70 mph,” the weather service said in a statement.High winds also buffeted the Denver metropolitan area, causing power outages to nearly 600 businesses and residences for a time on Monday, the utility company said on its online outage report.(Editing by Nick Macfie)

21 For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.

Australia's 'extreme' summer a sign of things to come: researchers-[Reuters]-By Ben Weir-YAHOONEWS-March 8, 2017

SYDNEY (Reuters) - Climate change was responsible for breaking more than 200 Australian weather records over the past three months, researchers said on Wednesday, a glimpse of conditions to come that will likely threaten energy security and agriculture.Much of Australia's east coast endured its hottest summer on record, the independent Climate Council said, while torrential rain in Western Australia caused flash flooding.The sort of unseasonable conditions seen between Dec. 1 and Feb. 28 would likely be recurring regularly in future, the council said."I would say by 2025 or 2030, the odds are we will see another hot summer record set in Sydney and in other places," said Will Steffen, professor of environmental studies, Australian National University and lead author of the Climate Council report.The expected climate will strain the country's energy sector, the council said, threatening yet more blackouts.Australia saw several power outages in different parts of he country after temperatures soared regularly above 40 Celsius (103 Fahrenheit), with demand for air-conditioning strained supplies.Australia's changing climate also threatens one of the main pillars of its economy, with agricultural production vulnerable."A really bad year can just demolish crop yields," said Phin Ziebell, agribusiness economist, at the National Australia Bank.Australia exported a record A$50 billion ($37.98 billion)worth of agricultural produce last year, government data shows, which helped soften the blow of a slowdown in its dominant mining sector.The Climate Council report comes days after another independent report warned the impact of climate change had caused permanent damage to Australia's environment.Australian scientists said recently mass coral bleaching, caused by climate change, has destroyed at least 35 percent of the northern and central Great Barrier Reef.(Writing by Colin Packham; Editing by Robert Birsel)

Six years after Fukushima nuclear disaster, residents trickle back to deserted towns-[Reuters]-By Kiyoshi Takenaka and Teppei Kasai-YAHOONEWS-March 8, 2017

NAMIE, Fukushima (Reuters) - A truck occasionally whizzes past the darkened shops with cracked walls and fallen signs that line the main street of Japan's mostly deserted seaside town of Namie.Workers repair a damaged home nearby, and about 60 employees busily prepare for the return of former residents in the largely untouched town hall. Not far away, two wild boars stick their snouts in someone's yard, snuffling for food.Signs of life are returning nearly six years after panicked residents fled radiation spewed by the nearby Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant, when it was struck by an earthquake and tsunami.Still, only several hundred of the original 21,500 residents plan to return in the first wave, estimates Hidezo Sato, a former seed merchant who helped draw up a blueprint to rebuild the town."As a person who used to sell seeds for a living, I believe now is a time to sow seeds" for rebuilding, said Sato, 71. "Harvesting is far away. But I hope I can manage to help bring about fruition."For a graphic on Fukushima returnees, click http://tmsnrt.rs/2lv77E6-Since November, people who registered have been allowed to spend nights in the town, but residents will not need permission to stay round the clock after Japan lifts evacuation orders for parts of Namie and three other towns at the end of March.Just 4 km (2.5 miles) away from the wrecked plant, Namie is the closest area cleared for the return of residents since the disaster of March 11, 2011.But the town will never be the same, as radiation contamination has left a big area off limits. And it may never be inhabitable.More than half - 53 percent - of former residents have decided not to return, a government poll showed last September. They cited concerns over radiation and the safety of the nuclear plant, which is being dismantled in an arduous, 40-year effort.-OLD FOLKS-More than three-quarters of those aged 29 or less do not intend to return, which means old people could form the bulk of the town's population in a future largely devoid of children."Young people will not go back," said Yasuo Fujita, a former Namie resident who runs a restaurant in Tokyo, the capital. "There will neither be jobs nor education for children."Fujita said he did not want to live near a possible storage site for contaminated soil, now being systematically removed.Radiation levels at Namie town hall stood at 0.07 microsieverts per hour on Feb. 28, little different from the rest of Japan.But in the nearby town of Tomioka, a dosimeter read 1.48 microsieverts an hour, nearly 30 times higher than in downtown Tokyo, underscoring lingering radiation hotspots.For the towns' evacuation orders to be lifted, radiation must fall below 20 millisieverts per year. They must also have functioning utilities and telecoms systems, besides basic health, elderly care and postal services.-HUNTING BOAR-Namie, which used to have six grade schools and three middle schools, plans to eventually open a joint elementary-junior high school. So children will need to commute to schools elsewhere initially.A hospital opens later this month, staffed with one full-time and several part-time doctors.Reconstruction efforts may create some jobs. The town's mayor, Tamotsu Baba, hopes to draw research and robotics firms.Prospects for business are not exactly bright in the short term, but lumber company president Munehiro Asada said he restarted his factory in the town to help drive its recovery."Sales barely reach a tenth of what they used to be," he said. "But running the factory is my priority. If no one returns, the town will just disappear."Shoichiro Sakamoto, 69, has an unusual job: hunting wild boars encroaching on residential areas in nearby Tomioka. His 13-man squad catches the animals in a trap before finishing them off with air rifles."Wild boars in this town are not scared of people these days," he said. "They stare squarely at us as if saying, 'What in the world are you doing?' It's like our town has fallen under wild boars' control."Some former Namie residents say the evacuation orders should remain until radiation levels recede and the dismantling of the ruined nuclear plant has advanced.But it is now or never for his town, Mayor Baba believes."Six long years have passed. If the evacuation is prolonged further, people's hearts will snap," he said. "The town could go completely out of existence."(Reporting by Kiyoshi Takenaka and Teppei Kasai: Editing by Malcolm Foster and Clarence Fernandez)

Tanker truck spills 23,000 litres of fuel near Caledon conservation area-[CBC]-YAHOONEWS-March 7, 2017

A rolled-over tractor-trailer has spilled 23,000 litres of fuel near a conservation area in Caledon — and it's still leaking into nearby ditches.The truck's pup trailer rolled over overnight on Highway 9, near Airport Road and the Glen Haffy Conservation area.OPP Const. Stephanie Hammond said the fuel spill so far has been significant and up to 33,000 litres could spill if the leak isn't stopped soon."It's gone into the ditches, it's gone into the catch basin. But the catch basin does not flow into the Humber River itself," she said.A stretch of Highway 9 near the spill is currently closed, and will likely stay that way until 3 or 4 p.m. as emergency crews — including firefighters from Caledon and Brampton, Halton Spill Control, the Ministry of the Environment and Ontario Provincial Police — remain on scene for spill control.Crews trying to prevent wetland contamination-"This'll be a big effort here to get this cleaned up," Hammond said from the scene, adding rain is complicating the situation.Caledon Mayor Allan Thompson said three basins have been set up in the ditch to catch fuel. But the spill is proving tricky to contain."​The back trailer is what they're trying to deal with at this point," he said. "The puncture can't be contained... so they're pumping off (fuel)."The main focus right now "is to prevent contamination of the wetland," Thompson added.It's not clear why the driver lost control, said Hammond, but "speed doesn't seem to be a factor at this point."No injuries have been reported.

Multi-speed Europe is a warning, EU official says By Eszter Zalan-MAR 8,17-EUOBSERVER

BRUSSELS, Today, 09:18-The possibility of a multi-speed Europe should not be an objective, but a warning to all of Europe, a senior EU official said on Tuesday (7 March) as EU leaders gather in Brussels to discuss which way the bloc should be headed after the UK leaves.Twenty-seven EU leaders will gather on the second day of the EU summit on Friday (10 March) to prepare the message for the Rome summit later this month, aimed at commemorating the 60th anniversary of the signing of the Rome Treaty which gave birth to European integration.Germany, France, Italy and Spain have endorsed the idea of multi-speed Europe, in which some countries could forge ahead with deeper integration, even if others do not want to follow suit. A similar Benelux paper has been circulated at the Malta summit in early February.But some Nordic and eastern European countries are wary of making multi-speed Europe an official policy of the EU after Brexit, fearing it could lead to disintegration of the bloc or disadvantages for them.European Commission president Jean-Claude Juncker came out last week with a white paper, which spelled out 5 possible scenarios for the EU's future, one of them being a multi-speed Europe.While member states have already had the opportunity to move closer together on various areas where others don't want to, under the so-called enhanced cooperation scheme, further economic and political integration has always been the core driving narrative of the EU.However, a senior EU official said the Rome summit should not be about that, but rather a display of unity among the 27 member states."After Brexit, Rome should be not a message of disunity, but the unity of 27," he told journalists.The official acknowledged that the final decision rests with leaders but argued "if in Rome a new baby is to be born of the 27, the name of it should be Unity, not Multi-speed""Multi-speed should not be seen as an objective, but it is a warning ... It is a warning to all of us," he added, referring to possible disintegration.But this this view is bound to clash with the EU's founding members' efforts to integrate more deeply, and have a reference to that in the Rome declaration.With elections coming up this year in three of them, the Netherlands, France and Germany, they feel time is running out amidst rising populism and nationalism."This is the moment to say we want to go ahead with a different method of integration," an EU diplomat told EUobserver.A typical EU-type solution could be to have a reference to the possibility of member states integrating further, while providing safeguards to other countries so that it won't be detrimental to them.The Rome meeting is being prepared by EU commission president Juncker, European Council president Donald Tusk, Italian premier Paolo Gentiloni, and Maltese prime minister Joseph Muscat, whose country holds the rotating presidency of the EU.No document on the future of Europe is expected to emerge from the meeting of 27 EU leaders on Friday.The Rome declaration itself is also expected to be short, much like the Berlin Declaration that marked the 50th anniversary of the the Treaty of Rome in 2007.

EPP pushes for multi-speed Europe By Eric Maurice-EUOBSERVER

BRUSSELS, 7. Mar, 16:39-With three EU institution presidents and a German chancellor in its ranks, the centre-right European People's Party (EPP) wants to weigh in on the current thinking about the future of the EU.The EPP presented on Tuesday (7 March) the strategy it will adopt at its congress towards the end of the month in Malta."The central narrative is that we want to keep our democracies, our societies, and our economies as open as possible," Herman Van Rompuy, who authored the report with Elmar Brok, told journalists in Brussels.Van Rompuy, a former Belgian prime minister and European Council president, said that "the future of the EU has to be defined by the objectives we want to pursue", such as "protecting people better against new threats to their security and their prosperity" and defending "core European values inside and outside Europe".Amid talks about a turn towards a so-called multi-speed Europe, in which some member states integrate more than others in some areas, Van Rompuy admitted that the option was "a second choice, not a first choice".He added that the first objective would be to work together as 27, but "if this is not possible, there is a fallback," referring to enhanced cooperation, the legal name for the multi-speed mechanisms.For the EPP, Van Rompuy said, in "key domains" such as the euro or the passport-free Schengen area, "more deepened integration and coordination among member states is necessary to preserve the acquis and to let them work better"."We have no other choice," he insisted.-Le Pen would change Europe-The EU's effort to redefine itself comes while facing Brexit, Donald Trump's election and continued hostile actions from Russia. It also addresses the rise of anti-EU forces, with a possibility of Marine Le Pen winning the French presidency in May."We have to be ready to deal with the worst," said EPP president Joseph Daul."If France is under Le Pen, we'll have another Europe but Marine Le Pen will not stop Europe's evolution," the French former MEP said."If a country has to go through a far-right experiment, the only wish I have if that it doesn't happen in France," he said, adding however that "if the democracy wants to elect Le Pen, the French people will have to assume the consequences of their democratic decision."In recent years, Van Rompuy pointed out, the EU kept the eurozone intact and managed the migration crisis, so it should be able to face anti-EU sentiment now."Nexit and Frexit will simply not happen," he insisted, referring to the potential of the Netherlands and France leaving the EU.The EPP party, which is historically linked to European integration but now counts among its members strong critics like Hungary's prime minister Viktor Orban, stressed the need for unity in uncertain times."None of the challenges [Europe faces] can be answered anymore by member states," said Elmar Brok, who until January chaired the European Parliament's foreign affairs committee."Both Luxembourg and Germany are too small," added the German MEP.Brok assured that EU nation states "will survive, because it's important for cultural, political, historical identity".-Orban the 'enfant terrible'-"The debate is not Europe or the nation, as some populists try to make, it's the nation and Europe. We won't allow populists to run away with the word 'nation'," he said.When asked about why the EPP kept Orban in its ranks despite his eurosceptic and anti-migrant positions, Daul said that "every family has its enfant terrible [and] if you want to keep contact with him it's better to keep him within the family so you can discuss it with him"."But there are red lines not to cross," the party chief added, referring to when Orban considered reintroducing the death penalty. "I will do the maximum to keep him in the family but he has to respect the values and principles of our political family", Daul added."For now, I will deal with the enfant terrible," he said. But he suggested that the task was not always easy: "he is the head of state and government I have the most on the phone".

CIA used Frankfurt consulate to spy on Europeans By Peter Teffer-MAR 8,17-EUOBSERVER

Brussels, Today, 09:27-The US intelligence agency, the CIA, has used the American consulate in Frankfurt as a covert base to carry out digital spy operations, Wikileaks revealed on Tuesday (7 March).The Center for Cyber Intelligence Europe, based in the German city, was the base for CIA hackers covering Europe, the Middle East, and Africa, Wikileaks said. The information is based on documents from the agency's internal discussion forum.The leaked documents included a guide for CIA hackers on how to prepare for their trip to Germany.“Be aware that your coworkers here are all under cover. While cover seems like an administrative thing back home, it is vital in the Field,” the guide said.The document said the hackers' cover story should be “Supporting technical consultations at the Consulate”.It also contained practical tips, like knowing when German holidays are, that on Sunday most shops are closed, and that they should not leave any electronic equipment in the hotel room.“Paranoid, yes, but better safe then sorry.”The guide also recommended flying with Lufthansa instead of United: “Booze is free so enjoy (within reason)!” and personal pages, like a long list of smileys.The vast majority of the released documents – 8,761, according to WikiLeaks – appear to be technical information on possible hacking techniques.It included information on how to exploit vulnerabilities in the security of Apple, Android, and Windows devices, but also Samsung TVs.-Big Brother-Some documents point to a collaboration with a counterpart from the United Kingdom. One indicated that at least nineteen “joint development workshops” had been held.In the week of 16 June 2014, there was a US-UK joint workshop with MI5, the UK domestic intelligence agency, about how to hack into Samsung smart TVs, so that they could be used to eavesdrop.The programme was called Weeping Angel.“After infestation, Weeping Angel places the target TV in a 'Fake-Off' mode, so that the owner falsely believes the TV is off when it is on,” Wikileaks summarised in a press release.“In 'Fake-Off' mode the TV operates as a bug, recording conversations in the room and sending them over the Internet to a covert CIA server,” it added.The leaks bring to mind the uncovering of covert operations by the NSA, another US intelligence agency.The man responsible for that leak, Edward Snowden, said on Tuesday in a tweet that the new reports showed that the US government is “developing vulnerabilities in US products, then intentionally keeping the holes open. Reckless beyond words.”

U.N. decries U.S. 'vilification' of migrants, fears mass expulsions-[Reuters]-YAHOONEWS-March 8, 2017

GENEVA (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump's immigration policies could lead to collective expulsions of migrants in a breach of international law, the United Nations human rights chief said on Wednesday.Zeid Ra'ad al-Hussein, the U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights, also voiced concern at the new U.S. policy banning entry of people from six Muslim-majority countries for 90 days, announced on Monday after Trump's controversial first attempt was blocked in the courts.Greater leadership was needed to address a surge in discrimination, anti-Semitism and violence against ethnic and religious minorities in the United States, he said in an annual speech to the United Nations Human Rights Council in Geneva."Vilification of entire groups such as Mexicans and Muslims, and false claims that migrants commit more crimes than U.S. citizens, are harmful and fuel xenophobic abuses," Zeid said.He voiced dismay at "attempts by the President to intimidate or undermine journalists and judges".The revised policies would greatly increase the number of migrants at immediate risk of deportation, regardless of the number of years spent in the United States or family roots, Zeid said."Expedited deportations could amount to collective expulsions and refoulement, in breach of international law, if undertaken without due process guarantees, including individual assessment," Zeid said, referring to the U.N. Refugee Convention that prohibits sending back people who are fleeing war, violence or persecution.He was particularly concerned about the impact of children "who face being detained, or may see their families torn apart".(Reporting by Stephanie Nebehay, editing by Tom Miles)

Indonesia jails leaders of "deviant sect" for blasphemy-[Reuters]-YAHOONEWS-March 8, 2017

JAKARTA (Reuters) - An Indonesian court has jailed three leaders of a group that Islamic clerics had called a deviant religious organization for up to five years for blasphemy, sparking condemnation from human rights groups over the targeting of minorities.The now disbanded Gafatar hit the headlines after dozens of people, who had been reported missing by relatives, were believed to have joined. Last year, hundreds of members had to be evacuated from their West Kalimantan base after being attacked by residents who opposed their beliefs.Gafatar was labeled by Indonesia's Ulema Council a deviant sect and authorities had described its teachings as "dangerous". People associated with the group say it is a social organization, not religious.A panel of judges at the East Jakarta court on Tuesday jailed Mahful Muis Tumanurung and Ahmad Mussadeq for five years and Andry Cahya for three years for blasphemy. The men were cleared of treason charges.A lawyer for the men, Yudhistira, described it as a "malicious prosecution" that had tainted Indonesia's justice system and said would consider whether to appeal.Indonesia's blasphemy laws have come under greater scrutiny since Basuki Tjahaja Purnama, Jakarta's Christian governor, was put on trial for allegedly insulting the Koran. He has denied wrongdoing but his trial has inflamed religious tensions. Almost all blasphemy cases in recent years have ended in conviction.Indonesia has the world's largest population of Muslims, the majority of whom adhere to moderate Sunni beliefs, and it recognizes six religions including Hinduism, Catholicism and Buddhism, but minorities, even within Islam, have faced rising intolerance in recent years.Human rights organizations criticized the verdicts."The sentences show how Indonesia's vague, coercive and discriminatory blasphemy laws are being used to punish people for peacefully exercising minority beliefs," said Josef Benedict, Amnesty International's Deputy Director for Southeast Asia and the Pacific.(Reporting by Agustinus Beo De Costa; Writing by Ed Davies; Editing by Nick Macfie)

Turkey, Germany must rebuild friendship 'step by step': German FM-[AFP]-YAHOONEWS-March 8, 2017

Berlin (AFP) - Germany and Turkey must work towards restoring ties frayed by a series of disputes, Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel said Wednesday, while warning Ankara that any comparison to Nazis is a "red line that cannot be crossed".Ankara and Berlin have been locked in a new row over the past week because of a ban imposed by several German local authorities on rallies by Turkish ministers.The dispute is the latest in a long list of problems that have plagued ties, and comes just after Ankara's arrest of a journalist for German daily Die Welt that sparked consternation in Berlin.On Sunday, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan raised the stakes when he told a rally in Istanbul that the German ban against his ministers is "not different from the Nazi practices of the past".Hosting his Turkish counterpart Mevlut Cavusoglu for talks on Wednesday, Gabriel said he "made clear that comparisons between Nazi-era and the cancellation of rallies or rule of law in Germany is forbidden.""Both sides have the responsibility to simply not cross certain red lines, and comparisons to Nazi Germany is one of them," said Gabriel.Despite their deep differences on a host of issues, "there is no alternative to dialogue because that is the only way we can return step by step to a normal and friendly relationship," added Gabriel.

New bomb threats made against Jewish centers across U.S., Canada-[Reuters]-By Laila Kearney-YAHOONEWS-March 7, 2017

NEW YORK (Reuters) - A new round of bomb threats against Jewish community centers across the United States and in Canada forced lockdowns and evacuations on Tuesday, and all 100 U.S. senators asked the federal government to help them enhance security.Threats were phoned in or emailed to JCCs in states including New York, Wisconsin, Illinois and Florida overnight and early on Tuesday. Centers in Toronto and elsewhere in Ontario also said they were threatened.U.S. federal authorities have been investigating a surge of threats against Jewish organizations, including more than 100 hoax bomb threats in five separate waves in January and February against JCCs in dozens of states.The Trump Administration denounced the newest round of threats "in the strongest terms," White House spokesman Sean Spicer told a news briefing."As long as they do continue, we'll continue to condemn them and look at ways in which we can stop them," Spicer said.Tuesday's incidents appeared unconnected to the majority of previous threats, according to the Secure Community Network, which provides security expertise to Jewish groups.A letter signed by all 100 U.S. senators was sent on Tuesday to top U.S. law enforcement officials asking that they help Jewish groups enhance security."We are concerned that the number of incidents is accelerating and failure to address and deter these threats will place innocent people at risk and threaten the financial viability of JCCs," the letter said.One arrest was made last week, when a former journalist was charged in St. Louis with using fake email accounts to threaten to bomb Jewish sites while posing as his ex-girlfriend. But he is not believed to be responsible for the majority of threats.Threats came in to Jewish centers and day schools on Tuesday in cities including Chicago, Milwaukee and the greater Rochester area in upstate New York.The Anti-Defamation League, a Jewish civil rights organization, also said it received bomb threats at four of its locations.In addition to violent threats, some Jewish organizations received harassing phone calls. At the East Midwood Jewish Center in Brooklyn, police said, an anonymous caller threatened to spray the center's synagogue with pig's blood."We’ve never seen such a period of concentrated threats against the Jewish community," New York Mayor Bill de Blasio told a news conference. "The last few weeks are more troubling than anything I’ve seen in many, many years."(Additional reporting by Joseph Ax in New York and Timothy McLaughlin in Chicago; Editing by Dan Grebler and Jonathan Oatis)

Tory leadership candidate Kellie Leitch wants immigrants to be asked: 'Are men and women equal?'-[CBC]-YAHOONEWS-March 7, 2017

If one Conservative leadership candidate has her way, immigrants hoping to start a new life in Canada will be pressed for their views on women's equality, the use of violence and how to provide for their families.In a sponsored email sent to subscribers of the conservative website TheRebel.media, Kellie Leitch promises that if she becomes Conservative leader, and then prime minister, she would require each immigrant to Canada to be screened for Canadian values.The email includes three examples of questions she wants asked of immigrants: - Are men and woman equal, and entitled to equal protection under the law? - Is it ever OK to coerce or use violence against an individual or a group who disagrees with your views? - Do you recognize that to have a good life in Canada you will need to work hard to provide for yourself and your family, and that you can't expect to have things you want given to you? It is unclear if the email, which was first reported by iPolitics.ca, was sent to all Conservative Party members, or just subscribers to TheRebel.media.Leitch's campaign spokesman Michael Diamond said he would not be able to shed any more light on the email because he does "not discuss strategy or tactics with the media."The cornerstone of Leitch's campaign to be the next leader of the federal Conservatives has so far been her pledge to redraft Canada's immigration policy.Not only would her plan require each immigrant to be screened for anti-Canadian values, but everyone seeking to start a new life in Canada would have to undergo a face-to-face interview with an immigration official before being granted entry."I believe that every single potential immigrant, without exception, should have a face-to-face interview with a trained immigration officer and asked questions to ascertain whether or not their values are consistent with our way of life," Leitch says in the email.-Drawing controversy-It is an idea Leitch has been advocating since she first launched her campaign. It was also a key part of her widely lampooned online video launched last month."Do they support the ideas of hard work, generosity, freedom and tolerance? Do they believe men and women are equal?" Leitch asks in the video."Do they agree that violence has no place in political disagreements? Do they agree that all should be left to worship how they see fit? Do they agree that there is one law that applies to all Canadians equally?" Leitch has used the policy to garner the attention of the press, but some of her fellow candidates say the kind of press coverage her "Canadian values" pitch is getting is actually hurting the party.Leadership candidate Deepak Obhrai issued a statement critical of Leitch's plans on the same day Leitch sent out her email through TheRebel.media. Obhrai said Leitch's "Canadian values" test questions risk painting the Conservatives as an "anti-immigrant party.""Ms. Leitch's proposal to screen every immigrant and visitor is nothing but Donald Trump's executive order, disguised as Canadian values, and crafted to keep Muslims out of Canada," he said in the statement."This is a dangerous environment to create in Canada, and I am outraged by this," he added.
