US 'playing the terrorism game' in Syria warns Lavrov-[AFP]-YAHOONEWS-April 8, 2017

Moscow (AFP) - The United States is "playing the terrorism game", Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said Saturday during his first phone talks with his US counterpart Rex Tillerson since the US air strikes on Syria last week."A country which battles against terrorism is just playing the terrorism game," and "creates regional and global security threats", Lavrov warned Tillerson, according to a Russian foreign ministry statement.Lavrov also reaffirmed Russia's position that accusations that the Syrian regime had launched a chemical weapons attack on the Syrian town of Khan Sheikhun last week "are not in line with reality".The United States on Thursday fired 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles from warships in the Mediterranean at the Shayrat airfield near Homs in central Syria.The previous day US President Donald Trump said pictures of the Khan Sheikhun victims in agony, had "an enormous impact" on him.Saturday's phone call was the first between the top diplomats of Russia and the US since the strikes on the Syrian airfield.US Secretary of State Tillerson is due to arrive in Moscow on Tuesday for two days of talks.On Friday, Russian foreign ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said Moscow expects "explanations", during Tillerson's visit, for the US air strike on the Syrian airbase-For his part, Tillerson on Friday said he was disappointed" by Russia's reaction "because it indicates their continued support" for the Syrian regime of President Bashar al-Assad.

US sends message to N. Korea, China with Syria strike-[AFP]-Park Chan-Kyong-YAHOONEWS-April 8, 2017

The US missile strike on Syria contained a clear message for North Korea and its main ally China, analysts said, but not one strong enough to push Pyongyang off its nuclear weapons path.While the timing was largely coincidental, the fact that US President Donald Trump ordered the strike while hosting a summit with Chinese leader Xi Jinping carried particular resonance given that the North's nuclear ambitions -– and how best to thwart them –- was among the top agenda items of their meeting.And exercising the military option added some extra weight to Trump's recent threat of unilateral action against Pyongyang if Beijing fails to help curb its neighbour's nuclear weapons programme.Kim Yong-Hyun, a professor at Dongguk University, said the strike against Syria was a statement of intent that was meant for a wide readership."It signals to Pyongyang that the US has a new sheriff in town who isn't hesitant about pulling his gun from the holster," Kim said.But while the move might have given the North pause, Pyongyang on Saturday said the strikes only confirmed its view that nuclear weapons were key to guaranteeing its future survival."The reality of today shows that we must stand against power with power and it proves a million times over that our decision to strengthen our nuclear deterrence has been the right choice," state media reported an unnamed foreign ministry spokesman as saying.The Syria strikes were an "intolerable act of aggression," he added.- Nuclear determination -The North has carried out five nuclear tests -- two of them last year -- and expert satellite imagery analysis suggests it could well be preparing for a sixth.US intelligence officials say Pyongyang could be less than two years away from developing a nuclear warhead that could reach the continental United States.If Thursday's strike was a warning to other countries, it was one with which Pyongyang, which regularly cites US hostility as the driving force behind its nuclear weapons development, is quite familiar."Trump's attack on Syria is unlikely to have any significant effect on a North Korea that is already well versed in the threat posed by the United States," said Joel Wit, a senior fellow at the US-Korea Institute at Johns Hopkins University.At the time of the US-led invasion of Iraq in 2003, then North Korean leader Kim Jong-Il disappeared from public view for around six weeks -- and was widely believed to have gone into hiding for fear of a US attack.Chang Yong-Seok, a senior researcher at the Institute for Peace and Unification at Seoul National University, said Kim's son, current leader Kim Jong-Un, had no reason to take such precautions."Armed with nuclear weapons, he would hardly flinch at the attack in Syria," Chang said.As if to underline the point, North Korean state media released photos of a smiling Kim inspecting a mushroom farm.- Warning to China? -The question then arises as to what impact the US president's willingness to exercise his military muscle may have on China's thinking.China is North Korea's economic lifeline and as such enjoys more leverage over its maverick neighbour than any other country.Like his predecessors in the White House, Trump wants China to do more to influence the North's behaviour, but has gone further than others in threatening to go it alone if Beijing fails to step up to the plate.In that context, the strike against Syria may resonate more firmly in Beijing than Pyongyang."It's a signal that Trump's administration will not only talk, they will act," said Wang Dong, Associate Professor and Director of the School of International Studies at Peking University.While China has clearly lost patience with Pyongyang's nuclear provocations, it is extremely wary of any response that might bring about North Korea's collapse and chaos on its doorstep."From the Chinese point of view, there is still room to explore a path for a diplomatic solution," Wang said.Jia Qingguo, a professor of International Relations at Beijing University, said the North's nuclear arsenal and highly sensitive geopolitical position meant the fallout of any military action could be catastrophic."A small kick could provoke big disasters. It's not like Iraq," Jia said.Although China's state media went strong on photos and coverage of the Xi-Trump summit, it gave little space to news of the strikes against Syria, with few editorials or commentaries.One exception was the nationalist-leaning Global Times, which suggested that Trump's "show of force" was rash and ill-considered."This was Trump's first major move in international affairs, and it leaves an impression that the decision was made in haste and not without contradiction," the newspaper said.

U.S. strikes destroyed Syrian means to deliver chemical weapons - admiral-[Reuters]-YAHOONEWS-April 8, 2017

COLOGNE, Germany (Reuters) - U.S. Navy Admiral Michelle Howard said on Saturday U.S. cruise missile strikes on an air base in Syria had destroyed the means to deliver chemical weapons from that base, and the U.S. military remained ready to carry out further strikes if needed.Howard, the four-star officer who leads U.S. Naval Forces in Europe and Africa, told Reuters the United States had decided to launch the strikes after the United Nations failed to pass a resolution condemning a deadly chemical weapons attack that killed scores of people in rebel-held Khan Sheikhoun.Washington has blamed the Syrian government for the attack on Tuesday. The Syrian government has strongly denied responsibility and blamed the deaths on leaks from a rebel chemical arms store it says was hit by a Syrian air strike."We conducted strikes against an air field which was the means by which the chemicals were launched into the air. Those means don't exist now," Howard said in an interview during a missile defence event in Cologne."We saw the misuse of chemical weapons and said, 'OK, we need to send a very clear message'".Asked about the U.S. military's plan for how to deal with any potential further attacks, Howard said the military was ready to respond if other civilian options failed."As the civilian leadership works through what their options are, if other options don't pan out, then it's generally the military that gets asked to do something."Howard declined to give any details about the flight path of the missiles, or the U.S. military assessment of the damage caused, but said she was confident the strikes had hit their intended target."The intention was to take out the airfield and to remove the means of the delivery of chemical weapons. I feel that was accomplished," she said.The cruise missiles were launched by two ships in the European region, the USS Porter and the USS Ross, in close coordination with U.S. Central Command, which is responsible for the Middle East.Howard lauded the quick action taken by the commanders and crews of the two ships in response to the use of chemical weapons by the Syrian regime.Howard said the integration of the strikes was "flawless" and showed the ability of the U.S. Navy to project power around the world.(Reporting by Andrea Shalal, editing by David Evans)

Syrian governor confirms air base operating again-[Reuters]-YAHOONEWS-April 8, 2017

BEIRUT (Reuters) - A Syrian air base targeted in a U.S. cruise missile attack is operating again, the governor of Syria's Homs province confirmed on Saturday.The United States launched the missile strikes on Friday in response to a chemical attack that killed 90 people including 30 children. It says the Syrian government launched the attack from the Shayrat air base. Damascus has strongly denied carrying out the attack and says it does not use chemical weapons.The Syrian army said on Friday the attack had caused extensive damage to the base, which the United States says it targeted with 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles."The airport is operating as a first phase," Homs governor Talal Barazi told Reuters. "Planes have taken off from it," he added, without saying when.Asked if it was true that Syrian planes were now taking off from Shayrat or that the air base is operating, a Pentagon spokesman referred questions to the Syrian government.The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a UK-based organisation that reports on the war, said warplanes had taken off from the base on Friday and carried out air strikes on rebel-held areas in the eastern Homs countryside.An activist with an opposition air raid warning service said however that the first flight from the base was on Saturday morning.U.S. President Donald Trump suggested on Twitter that the runway itself had not been the target of the missile strikes."The reason you don't generally hit runways is that they are easy and inexpensive to quickly fix (fill in and top)!", he said.A senior military source in the alliance fighting in support of President Bashar al-Assad said the airbase had been mostly evacuated thanks to a warning from Russia, which has deployed its military to Syria in support of Assad.The senior military source, a non-Syrian, said only a few out-of-service jets were destroyed.The United States warned Russia ahead of the attack.Assad is also backed in the war by Iran and the Lebanese group Hezbollah, and other Iranian-backed groups.The Pentagon said the missiles targeted aircraft, hardened aircraft shelters, petroleum and logistical storage areas, ammunition supply bunkers, air defense systems, and radars.(Reporting by Kinda Makieh in Damascus, Laila Bassan and Tom Perry in Beirut, Yeganeh Torbati in Washington; Writing by Tom Perry; Editing by Hugh Lawson)

Assad allies vow to keep battling 'terrorism' in Syria-[AFP]-YAHOONEWS-April 8, 2017

Beirut (AFP) - The Russian and Iranian army chiefs vowed Saturday to keep battling "terrorists" in Syria, a day after a US missile onslaught on a Syrian airbase following a suspected chemical weapons attack.General Valery Gerasimov and Major General Mohammad Bagheri spoke by phone and "condemned the American operation against a Syrian airbase which is an aggression against an independent country", Iran's state news agency IRNA said.US warships in the Mediterranean launched a barrage of 59 cruise missiles at Shayrat airbase in Syria early on Friday, after 87 people including 31 children were killed in a suspected aerial chemical attack on rebel-held Khan Sheikhun.Another air strike on Saturday on the same town in the northwestern province of Idlib killed a woman, the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported.It said it was unclear if the latest strike was by Syrian warplanes or those of Damascus's ally Russia.The monitor also reported an air strike on Urum al-Joz, another Idlib town, on Saturday that killed 18 civilians including five children.The Observatory said the Urum al-Joz raid was believed to have been carried out by Russian aircraft.Idlib province is controlled by a rebel alliance that includes a former Al-Qaeda affiliate, and is regularly targeted by both the Syrian government and its Russian ally.Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov accused Washington of "playing the terrorism game", during his first phone talks with his US counterpart Rex Tillerson since the US air strikes on Syria.A foreign ministry statement said Lavrov also reaffirmed Russia's position that accusations that the Syrian regime had launched a chemical weapons attack on Khan Sheikhun "are not in line with reality".- 'Intolerable aggression' -Much of the international community accused Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's government of responsibility for Tuesday's suspected chemical attack on Khan Sheikhun, though Damascus denied responsibility.The strike prompted Washington to take its first direct military action against Assad's government, with missiles raining down on the Shayrat airbase in central Syria.North Korea on Saturday denounced the American attack, calling it an "intolerable act of aggression" that "proves a million times over" that strengthening its nuclear programme was the right choice.The statement by the Iranian and Russian military chiefs said they both vowed to continue their military cooperation in support of Assad "until the total defeat of the terrorists and those that support them", according to Iran's Mehr news agency.The American strikes "aim at slowing the victories of the Syrian army and its allies, and reinforcing terrorist groups", they said in a statement.Iran and Russia are Assad's closest allies, and label all opponents of his regime as "terrorists".Both Tehran and Moscow have defended Assad against Western allegations that his regime carried out the suspected chemical weapons attack on Khan Sheikhun.- 'Terrorists celebrating' -Iran's President Hassan Rouhani Saturday criticised his US counterpart Donald Trump for the missile attack on the Syrian airbase."This man who is now in office in America claimed that he wanted to fight terrorism but today all terrorists in Syria are celebrating the US attack," he said.As the Arab League on Saturday warned against a "dangerous escalation" in Syria, influential Iraqi Shiite cleric Moqtada Sadr called on Assad to step down and on Washington and Moscow to stop intervening in the conflict."I would consider it fair for President Bashar al-Assad to resign and leave power, allowing the dear people of Syria to avoid the scourge of war and terrorist oppression," he said.Several Iraqi Shiite militias, some of them directly supported by Iran, are helping Assad's camp in the Syria conflict by sending fighting units across the border.On the political front, Britain's Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson cancelled a scheduled visit to Moscow next week, his office announced, saying "developments in Syria have changed the situation fundamentally".In Syria on Saturday, hundreds more Syrian rebels and their families left the last opposition-held neighbourhood of the central city of Homs, the state news agency reported.SANA said at least 242 rebels had left Waer along with their families under a deal granting them safe passage to opposition-held territory elsewhere in the country.More than 320,000 people have been killed in Syria since the conflict erupted in March 2011 with anti-government demonstrations.

North Korea blasts US strikes on Syria, says justify nukes: state media-[AFP]-YAHOONEWS-April 8, 2017

Seoul (AFP) - North Korea has said the US missile strikes on Syria were an "intolerable act of aggression" that "proves a million times over" that strengthening its nuclear programme was the right choice, state media reported Saturday.The comments were Pyongyang's first since US President Donald Trump ordered the strikes on an air base in the war-wracked country Thursday in retaliation for an apparent chemical attack."The US missile attack against Syria is a clear and intolerable act of aggression against a sovereign state and we strongly condemn it," KCNA news agency quoted an unnamed spokesman for the North Korean foreign ministry as saying."The reality of today shows that we must stand against power with power and it proves a million times over that our decision to strengthen our nuclear deterrence has been the right choice."Analysts had earlier said the strikes contained a clear message for Pyongyang that the US was not afraid to exercise the military option, and there had been speculation as to how the North would respond.Trump has recently threatened unilateral action against Pyongyang if Beijing fails to help curb its neighbour's nuclear weapons programme.However, Pyongyang's response suggested the reclusive state was determined to continue with its nuclear weapons programme."Swaggering as a superpower, the US has been picking only on countries without nuclear weapons and the Trump administration is no exception," the foreign ministry spokesman said, according to KCNA."The Syria attack thoroughly reminds us the fact that it is absolutely dangerous to have any illusions about imperialism and only military power of our own will protect us from imperialistic aggression," he added."We will keep bolstering our self-defensive military might in various ways in order to cope with the ever-intensifying US acts of aggression."The North has carried out five nuclear tests -- two of them last year -- and expert satellite imagery analysis suggests it could well be preparing for a sixth.Pyongyang has shown no sign of reining in a missile testing programme ultimately aimed at securing the capability to deliver a nuclear warhead to the continental United States.

Iran's Rouhani wants chemical attack in Syria investigated-[Reuters]-YAHOONEWS-April 8, 2017

DUBAI (Reuters) - Iranian President Hassan Rouhani called on Saturday for an impartial probe of this week's suspected chemical weapons attack in Syria and warned that U.S. missile strikes in response risked escalating extremism in the region.Washington accused the government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad of the attack and on Friday launched cruise missiles at a Syrian airbase that the Pentagon said was involved."We are asking for an impartial international fact-finding body to be set up... to find out where these chemical weapons came from," Iran's Rouhani said in a speech on Saturday.Tehran is Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's main regional ally and has provided military and economic support for his fight against rebel groups and Islamic State militants.While the Syrian opposition applauded the U.S. cruise missile attack on the airbase near Homs, it said it should not be a one-off and was not enough on its own to stop government warplanes from hitting rebel-held areas.However, in a tweet about the missile strikes, Rouhani said: "I call on the world to reject such policies, which bring only destruction and danger to the region and the globe.""U.S. aggression against Shayrat (airbase) strengthens regional extremism and terror, and global lawlessness and instability, and must be condemned," Rouhani said.The heads of the general staffs of Iran and Russia, a close ally of Assad, spoke by telephone on Saturday and condemned the U.S. strikes as "blatant aggression ... aimed at slowing a trend of victories by Syria's army and its allies and boosting the terrorists' morale", Iran's state news agency IRNA said.Iran's Mohammad Baqeri and Russia's Valery Gerasimov "stressed that the two countries would continue their cooperation with the Syrian government until the full defeat of the terrorists and their backers in the country", IRNA added.North Korea weighed in on Saturday, calling the U.S. strikes "an unforgivable act of aggression" that showed its own decision to develop nuclear weapons was "the right choice a million times over".Diplomatically isolated North Korea considers Syria a key ally.-TILLERSON TO MOSCOW-Russia had said on Friday that the U.S. attack could have "extremely serious" consequences, and Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said the U.S. strikes were one step away from a clash with Russia's military.U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is expected to visit Moscow next week, and the Russian Foreign Ministry has said it expected him to explain Washington's stance in light of the U.S. missile strikes on Syria.Russia's defense ministry said on Saturday the United States had not provided any evidence of the presence of chemical weapons on the airbase it had attacked.A mission of professional experts should be sent to the airbase to obtain objective evidence, Interfax cited Igor Konashenkov, the defense ministry's spokesman, as saying.U.S. officials informed Russian forces ahead of the missile strikes on and avoided hitting Russian personnel. Satellite imagery suggests the base that was attacked houses Russian special forces and helicopters, part of Kremlin efforts to help Assad fight Islamic State and other militant groups.Britain's foreign minister Boris Johnson had been due to visit Moscow on Monday but said on Saturday that he had canceled his trip after developments in Syria."My priority is now to continue contact with the U.S. and others in the run-up to the G7 meeting on 10-11 April - to build coordinated international support for a ceasefire on the ground and an intensified political process," Johnson said.(Reporting by Dubai newsroom; Editing by Alexander Smith and Hugh Lawson)

Flows on Assiniboine River increase as Red River recedes-[CBC]-yahoonews-April 7, 2017

Manitoba municipalities are preparing temporary flood-protection measures to meet an increase in flowing water on the lower Assiniboine River.Doug McMahon, assistant deputy minister of Manitoba Infrastructure, said the Assiniboine River forecast has been revised and the flow downstream of the diversion will reach 15,000 cubic feet per second as early as April 10 — a flow assistant deputy minister of emergency measures Lee Spencer said is within the threshold the river can sustain.Even so, "the Assiniboine and areas in the west and south are now being closely watched," McMahon said.A flood watch remains in place for the area between Portage la Prairie and Headingley as flows increase.But as flows on the Assiniboine increase, flows on the Red River are dropping."Levels continue to decline on the Red River and most of its tributaries," McMahon said.By Friday morning, levels had dropped to 18.2 feet above normal winter ice levels at James Avenue in Winnipeg and were expected to remain around that level for the next week.A flood watch is still in effect for the Red Deer River but has been lifted for Plum Creek.A flood warning is in effect for the Birdtail Creek; the upper Assiniboine River from the Shellmouth Dam to Holland; the Pelican, Rock, Oak and Dauphin lakes; and the Pembina and Souris rivers.Crews are watching the Gretna dike for potential overflows. Owners of property around Pelican Lake are also being encouraged to set up flood protection.There is also a flood warning in effect for all points along the Souris River."Due to the unusually warm temperatures this year, the spring run-off was typically two weeks earlier than usual and the run-off rates were exceptionally high," said McMahon.Ice jamming also caused major issues and "some bridges have been severely damaged," he added.Most rivers in southern Manitoba are now ice free, he said, but ice is still in place in the north and ice jamming is still a concern."Run-off is starting to occur on the Saskatchewan River and the Carrot River watersheds. We will be watching those closely," McMahon said.As of Friday morning, there were 15 local states of emergency, mostly in the southwest part of the province and the Red River and Pembina River areas.Spencer said most communities declared their states of emergency to allow the use of certain powers like going onto private property, rather than in response to significant damages."[I] think those that are in a state of emergency will say that they are busy and they need it," he said.So far, 291 people have been forced by flooding to leave their homes. All but six of those people are from First Nations, and they are staying in hotels in Brandon, Portage la Prairie and Winnipeg.

Flood watch continues for much of southern Quebec-[CBC]-YAHOONEWS-April 8, 2017

Water levels for several rivers in southern Quebec have stabilized, but a flood-watch continues after more than 78 homes were evacuated in the the lower Laurentians on Friday.A combination of heavy rain and snow-melt over the last few days led to floods in the Sainte-Thérèse, Blainville and Rosemère areas as parts of the Mille-Iles and des Prairies rivers overflowed.The Chaudière River in Beauceville, south of Quebec City, also spilled its banks Friday night.Meanwhile, water levels of the Rivière aux Chiens, on the northern shore of Montreal, have started to return to normal and the focus there has turned to clean-up.The situation in Estrie and the Montérégie has stabilized as well.The provincial government is stepping in to help residents, with Quebec Public Safety Minister Martin Coiteux saying that those affected by the flooding would be entitled to aid programs."I would like to let affected residents know that the government of Quebec has programs that exist to help them," Coiteux said in Sainte-Thérèse on Friday.

Above normal rainfall causes flooding around Ottawa-[CBC]-YAHOONEWS-April 8, 2017

Water levels in areas south of Ottawa are now so high that some residents can't get to their cottages and homes.On Friday, the only road leading into the tiny community of Hilly Lane was completely under water. Residents with off-road style vehicles were still able to navigate the washed out lane into the community. Most others had to park their cars on the side of Rideau River Road and use hip waders to reach their homes and cottages. The community was also hit by flooding in 2011 and 2014.Just down the road from Hilly Lane, the long driveway leading into Rosewood Stable is also under water. The owner of the stable, Marie Bastien, said there are ten horses at the stable."We normally get some flooding but not to this degree," she said.Bastien said she is still able to get in and out of the stable in her large pick-up truck, but for most others the driveway is impassible. She says it's fortunate that she doesn't teach riding lessons on the weekend."If it keeps raining I'll be concerned," she added.The latest statement from the Rideau Valley Conservation Authority says above normal rainfall is causing high water throughout the Rideau Watershed. Water levels this high were last seen in 2014, according to the agency.It adds that the worst flooding is in North Grenville and rural Ottawa near the confluence of Kemptville Creek and the Rideau River.Plenty of  farmer's fields  under water. On Friday, Chris Sargent feared water from a farmer's field was about to wash out a section of Rideau Valley Drive North, about two-and-a-half kilometres south of Manotick."To me that was an emergency," he said.The retired public servant says the farmer's field next to the road was dry on Thursday. Now, it looks like a lake. He said the road was in danger of being washed out because a culvert stopped draining water from the field."The force of the water pushed the culvert right up into the air so one of the culvert was touching the water, it was above the water level. So then the road acts as a dam and it was just daming up."Sargent, who has lived in the area for twenty year, said he called the city and was told it was monitoring the situation. He suggested it needed more than monitoring so a crew came and pushed the culvert back down so the water could flow through it again."I've never seen this, I've never seen anything like this," he said.Some roads in Prescott and Russell closed-Meanwhile, residents and officials are also reporting rising water levels east of Ottawa. County Road 9 north of St. Isidore washed out after this week's rain. A detour in place for drivers.Officials from Stormont, Dundas and Glengary are monitoring water levels in the area and are asking residents to use caution.

Atlanta storm halts thousands of Delta Air flights-[Reuters]-YAHOONEWS-April 7, 2017

NEW YORK (Reuters) - Delta Air Lines Inc said it had canceled nearly 3,000 flights this week after a severe storm hit its hometown of Atlanta, Georgia and apologized for its response to the "unprecedented" weather.On Friday alone, the No. 2 U.S. airline by passenger traffic canceled 493 flights by the afternoon, according to flight tracking website, severely affecting routes in and out of its Atlanta hub.The storm ravaged much of the city on Wednesday, dumping several inches of rain and leaving behind damaged property and downed trees, according to local media reports.Delta Chief Operating Officer Gil West on Thursday apologized for the airline's performance in the wake of the storm, saying that its "recovery has not been ideal.""When Delta doesn’t fly aircraft, not only do customers not get to their destination, but flight crews don’t get to where they are scheduled to be. When this happens, unfortunately, further delays and cancellations result," West said in a statement.(Reporting by Alana Wise; Editing by Andrew Hay)

Warplanes strike Syrian town hit by chemical attack-[The Canadian Press]-yahoonews-April 8, 2017

BEIRUT — Warplanes on Saturday struck the Syrian town where a chemical attack had killed scores of people earlier this week, as Turkey warned that a retaliatory U.S. missile strike on a Syrian air base would only be "cosmetic" if greater efforts are not made to remove President Bashar Assad from power.The airstrikes on the opposition-held northern town of Khan Sheikhoun, where 87 people were killed in the chemical attack earlier this week, killed a woman and wounded her son, according to the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights and the Local Coordination Committees, an activist collective.Elsewhere in Syria, U.S.-led airstrikes killed at least 21 people, including a woman and her six children who were fleeing on a boat across the Euphrates River near the Islamic State group's self-styled capital, Raqqa, the target of a major offensive by U.S.-backed and Kurdish-led Syrian forces, activists said.An airstrike on a rebel-held town in the northern Idlib province killed at least 18 people, including women and children, according to the Observatory and Ariha Today, an activist group. It was not immediately clear who carried out the strike.Near the central city of Homs, a bomb exploded aboard a bus carrying workers, killing a woman and wounding more than 20, according to state TV and the Observatory.The chemical attack prompted the U.S. to launch nearly 60 Tomahawk missiles on a Syrian air base early Friday, which killed nine people and marked the first time Washington has directly targeted Syrian government forces since the war began in 2011.The move was welcomed by the Syrian opposition and its main backers, including Turkey and Saudi Arabia, but harshly condemned by Russia and Iran, who back Assad and said striking his forces would complicate the struggle against extremist groups.Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said the U.S. strike should be the start of a renewed effort to end the civil war, which has killed an estimated 400,000 people and displaced half of Syria's population."If this intervention is limited only to an air base, if it does not continue and if we don't remove the regime from heading Syria, then this would remain a cosmetic intervention," he said.He said the best outcome would be a peace agreement that leads to a transitional government accepted by all Syrians, followed by elections in which all Syrians, including those living abroad, could vote for new leadership. For that to happen, he said, "this oppressive Assad needs to go."Iran, which has provided crucial military and political support to Assad, meanwhile called for a fact-finding mission to determine what caused the chemical attack in Khan Sheikhoun. State television quoted Iranian President Hassan Rouhani as saying the committee should be impartial and "must not be headed by Americans."Rouhani said "neutral countries should come and assess to make it clear where the chemical weapons came from."Syria's government has denied carrying out any chemical attack, and Russia's Defence Ministry said the toxic agents were released when a Syrian airstrike hit a rebel chemical weapons arsenal and munitions factory.British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson cancelled a planned trip to Russia because of fast-moving events in Syria. Johnson said the situation in Syria has changed "fundamentally" following the chemical attack and the U.S. response.Johnson condemned Russia's continued defence of Assad "even after the chemical weapons attack on innocent civilians."He had planned to travel to Russia Monday on a trip intended to start a fresh dialogue with Moscow.U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson meanwhile plans to meet with G-7 foreign ministers in Europe next week before going on to Moscow. Johnson said Tillerson will be able to give a "clear and co-ordinated message to the Russians."In Damascus, dozens of Syrian students gathered outside the offices of the United Nations to protest the U.S. missile attack, chanting "Death to America" and "Death to Israel."University student Ashraf Fadel said he came to denounce "the unjust American aggression against Syria." He added that the United Nations was "created to support America instead of serving the wronged people."In a separate development, activists opposed to the Islamic State group said a U.S.-led coalition airstrike hit a boat carrying civilians fleeing across the Euphrates River. The groups Raqqa is Being Slaughtered Silently and Sound and Picture said the attack killed a woman and her six children. The attack occurred in the Shuaib al-Zeker area, near where U.S.-backed Syrian fighters have been battling IS under the cover of coalition airstrikes.Activists and state media said a separate airstrike by the U.S.-led coalition on the northern IS-held village of Hneida killed at least 14 civilians, including children. The Observatory said 15 people, including four children, were killed in the airstrike. The Sound and Picture group said the airstrike hit an internet cafe, killing 14 people.In Saudi Arabia, the official Saudi Press Agency reported that U.S. President Donald Trump has spoken by telephone with King Salman about the U.S. missile strike on Syria.The news agency reported that during the Friday phone call, the Saudi monarch congratulated Trump for his "courageous decision."Saudi Arabia said the missile launch was the right response to "the crimes of this regime to its people in light of the failure of the international community to stop it."The kingdom is among the most vehement opponents of Assad and supports Sunni rebel groups fighting to oust him. The Sunni rulers of Saudi Arabia are in a power struggle for regional dominance with Iran's Shiite government.___Associated Press writers Aya Batrawy in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, Zeynep Bilginsoy in Istanbul and Albert Aji in Damascus, Syria contributed to this report.Bassem Mroue, The Associated Press.

Truck attack angers Swedes, raises questions about policies-[The Canadian Press]-yahoonews-April 8, 2017

STOCKHOLM — One brutal attack by a man who drove a stolen truck into shoppers in Stockholm has brought Sweden's open-door immigration policies under increased scrutiny — and raised the question if Swedish society, considered democratic and egalitarian, has failed to integrate its newcomers.The suspect in Friday's attack, a 39-year-old native of Uzbekistan who has been arrested by police, had been on authorities' radar previously but they dismissed him as a "marginal character." It was unclear whether he was also a Swedish citizen or resident or even how long he'd been in the country.The attack killed four people and wounded 15. In response, hundreds gathered Saturday at the site of the crash in the Swedish capital, building a heartbreaking wall of flowers on the aluminum fence put up to keep them away from the site's broken glass and twisted metal. Some hugged police officers nearby."We have been too liberal to take in people who perhaps we thought would have good minds. But we are too good-hearted," said Stockholm resident Ulov Ekdahl, a 67-year-old commercial broker who went to the memorial.Joachim Kemiri, who was born in Sweden to a Tunisian father and a Swedish mother, says migrants and refugees had been arriving in too large numbers."Too many of them have been coming in too fast," the 29-year-old railway worker said. "It's too much."Sweden has long been known for its open-door policy toward migrants and refugees. But after the Scandinavian country of 10 million took in a record 163,000 refugees in 2015 — the highest per-capita rate in Europe — Prime Minister Stefan Lofven conceded it could no longer cope with the influx.At a press conference in late 2015, deputy prime minister of the small Greens Party — a junior government partner — Asa Romson, broke into tears as she announced measures to deter asylum-seekers in a reversal of Sweden's welcoming policy toward people fleeing war and persecution. She described it as "a terrible decision," admitting the proposals would make life even more precarious for refugees.On Saturday, Lofven laid flowers at the truck crash site, declaring Monday a national day of mourning, with a minute of silence at noon. He urged citizens to "get through this" and strolled through the streets of the capital to chat with them.No one has claimed responsibility for Friday's attack but Sweden's police chief said Saturday that authorities were confident they had detained the man who carried it out.Uzbekistan and other former Soviet Central Asian republics have long been a fertile recruiting ground for Islamic militant groups, notably the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan, which formed in 1998. Originally allied with al-Qaeda, many of the group's fighters have switched to Islamic State group affiliation.Russian officials say the suicide bomber who attacked the St. Petersburg subway on April 3 was a native of Kyrgyzstan.Sweden's police chief Dan Eliason said officers found something in the stolen beer truck that "could be a bomb" or an incendiary device, but said they were still investigating.Although it was not clear how long the suspect had been in Sweden, the Scandinavian country prides itself on welcoming newcomers. Still, its open-door immigration policy and comparatively heterogeneous culture has led to frictions, sometimes urban unrest, especially in areas where many long-time immigrants feel disempowered.The populist, right-wing Sweden Democrats have tapped into a growing anti-immigrant sentiment. Mattias Karlsson, the party's parliamentary group leader, said Saturday that he feels "anger and sorrow but not shock" over Friday's attack."Unfortunately, there have been clear signs that it was just a question of time before the next attack would hit Sweden," he said. "It will have far-reaching implications for society and politics."Steve Eklund, an office worker a few blocks away from where the accident occurred, said Sweden's immigration policy had gone wrong."Sweden has made some mistakes, and something needs to be done to assimilate the immigrants better," Eklund said. "But it takes two to tango — the immigrants living here need to reach out to ethnic Swedes too."Not everyone agreed. Visiting the crash site, Sweden's Crown Princess Victoria laid roses on the ground Saturday and wiped away a tear."We must show a huge force, we must go against this," she told reporters. "Swedish society is built on huge confidence, a sense of community."Joachim Lindstrom said he wasn't surprised by the attack."I don't think that Sweden has really failed in its efforts to assimilate newcomers," he told The Associated Press. "We have had long experience with them, but much depends on the people themselves."In February, U.S. President Donald Trump shocked Swedes when he suggested that Sweden could be the next European country to suffer the kind of extremist attacks that have hit France, Belgium and Germany.Friday's attack was the latest in which drivers have used vehicles as weapons.In an attack last month claimed by the Islamic State group, a man drove a rented SUV into a crowd in London, killing four people and injuring many others before stabbing a policeman to death. He was killed by police.The IS also claimed responsibility for a truck attack that killed 86 people in Nice, France, in July 2016 during a Bastille Day festival, as well as another truck attack that killed 12 people at a Christmas market last year in Berlin.Friday's truck attack on Stockholm's pedestrian shopping street of Drottninggatan was also near the site of a December 2010 attack in which Taimour Abdulwahab, a Swedish citizen, detonated a suicide bomb, killing himself and injuring two others.The prime minister made a point Saturday of walking around Stockholm, including along Drottninggatan, chatting with people having coffee outside a cafe. He said the aim of terrorism is to undermine democracy."But such a goal will never be achieved in Sweden," Lofven said.Others feared the deadly attacks could continue."Things like this will always happen in an open society. Sweden is not a totalitarian society," Eklund said. "Maniacs can't be stopped."___Pietro DeCristofaro in Stockholm and Jan M.

Suspect in Russia metro bombing travelled to Turkey, say co-workers-[Reuters]-By Polina Nikolskaya and Hulkar Isamova-YAHOONEWS-April 8, 2017

ST PETERSBURG, Russia/OSH, Kyrgyzstan (Reuters) - The man Russian police believe was the suicide bomber who killed 14 people in a blast on the St Petersburg metro this week developed an interest in Islam and soon after travelled to Turkey, two people who know him told Reuters.The two people said they did not know for sure if the man, Akbarzhon Jalilov, went on from Turkey to neighbouring Syria. Turkey has been routinely used by radical Islamists as a route into areas of Syria controlled by the Islamic State group.If Jalilov had been in Syria, that would expose a major gap in Russia's counter-terrorism procedures, which rely heavily on identifying anyone who has been with militants in Syria and stopping them from returning to Russia, or arresting them.The metro blast happened on Monday afternoon just as Russian President Vladimir Putin visited St Petersburg. No group has claimed responsibility. But Islamic State has threatened acts of violence on Russian soil in reprisal for the Kremlin's military intervention in Syria in support of President Bashar al-Assad.Jalilov, the suspected suicide bomber, was born in 1995 and grew up in the city of Osh in Kyrgyzstan, a mainly Muslim ex-Soviet Republic in Central Asia.Around 2011 he moved to St Petersburg. He worked in low-paid jobs for several years. Photographs posted on social media showed a stylishly dressed young man. His online posts offered no hint of any ties to Islamist militants.But there is a gap in Jalilov's biography from the end of 2015 until the start of this year. During that period several acquaintances said he disappeared from view.He reappeared when he visited Osh in February this year. In March he returned to St Petersburg and rented an apartment from where he set off on the day of the bombing carrying a rucksack and a bag.By speaking to several people who knew Jalilov well, Reuters has been able to piece together a picture of his life in the missing years.-FINDING RELIGION-According to someone from Osh who worked as a cook alongside Jalilov in a St Petersburg restaurant in 2014, he was an even-tempered young man who did not drink or use swear words."I would have said firmly that Akbar was not capable of doing anything bad," said the source, using an abbreviation of Jalilov's name. The source asked not to be identified because he did not want the authorities to associate him with a suicide bomber.The two worked in the same outlet of the Sushi Wok restaurant chain.During the course of 2014, said the former work colleague, Jalilov developed an interest in Islam. He prayed, went to the mosque, read the Koran, and started growing a beard. But the source said he did not notice any signs of extremism.The second source, another native of Osh who also worked with Jalilov in St Petersburg, said he too was aware that Jalilov had acquired an interest in religion. But he said Jalilov never tried to push his faith onto anyone else.During 2015, said the first source, Jalilov left St Petersburg. The source said he heard from other cooks at the restaurant that before leaving, Jalilov had said he was going to Turkey.He said, according to the source, that "there are good jobs in Turkey, and things aren't working out (with work) in St Petersburg."The second source, who also did not want to be identified, told Reuters he knew from Jalilov that he went to Turkey. The source said Jalilov had travelled there in November 2015, to join his uncle who was living in the Turkish region of Antalya.Contacted by Reuters in Osh, Jalilov's uncle, Khasan Kuchkarov, told Reuters he had lived in Antalya but left in September 2015 and was unaware of Jalilov travelling there.After Jalilov's departure from St Petersburg, there was talk among his old work colleagues, and among people who knew him back in Osh, that he had gone to Syria, both of the sources said. But neither of them knew for sure if he was in Syria, they said.Officials in Russia's Investigative Committee, the state body investigating the metro bombing, and in the Federal Security Service, declined to comment on whether Jalilov travelled to Turkey or Syria.-APARTMENT SUSPECTS-Russian law enforcement agencies have arrested eight people on suspicion of involvement in the metro bombing. Six were detained at an apartment on Tovarishcheskii Avenue in a residential suburb of St Petersburg, and two in Moscow.In the apartment, law enforcement officers found an explosive device identical to one which, police say, Jalilov had left at a metro station before going on to blow up the carriage in another part of the subway system. The device he left, hidden inside a fire extinguisher, did not go off.At a court arraignment hearing on Friday, only one of the detainees, Ibrahibzhon Ermatov, 24, said he knew Jalilov. He said they had worked together in a Sushi Wok branch in Vsevolozhsk, a town near St Petersburg. Ermatov denied being a supporter of Islamic State.The first of the two sources who knew Jalilov said the apartment on Tovarishcheskii Street was used by some people as a temporary stopping off point for workers arriving in St Petersburg from Osh.He said new arrivals found out about the 32 square-metre apartment via friends, and there was a regular turnover of tenants. Neighbours confirmed that to Reuters. The source said he had once stayed there himself for a day before moving on to longer-term accommodation.The source said Jalilov had not stayed at the apartment, to his knowledge. He said he knew one of the apartment tenants who had been arrested, Dilmurod Muildimov, from back home in Osh. Muildimov also worked for the Sushi Wok restaurant chain.The source said Muildimov had arrived in St Petersburg a few months ago, and that he did not know Jalilov.(Additional reporting by Maria Tsvetkova, Svetlana Reiter and Denis Pinchuk in MOSCOW, and Olzhas Auyezov in ALMATY; Writing by Christian Lowe; Editing by Hugh Lawson)

EU starts border checks on everyone By Nikolaj Nielsen-euobserver

BRUSSELS, 7. Apr, 09:29-National authorities will start imposing identity checks as of Friday (7 April) on everyone entering and leaving the European Union.The move is part of a broader security crackdown, which follows a series of terror attacks in Paris and Brussels involving EU nationals that had fought alongside militant extremists in Syria and elsewhere."We still have a stock of 2,500 Europeans who are on the ground [Syria and Iraq] and we don't know how many, at what rhythm, and on which routes they will return here," the EU's counter terror coordinator, Gilles de Kerchove, told Belgian radio last month.Anyone who flies in, or crosses a land or sea border will have their identities cross-checked with the Schengen Information System (SIS), and Interpol's database of lost travel documents (SLTD).The checks, which were already being imposed on non-EU nationals, will now also extend to EU citizens.Authorities will be able to relax some of the border control checks in case of heavy traffic flows. A transitional period has also been imposed for airports.SIS is the most widely-used information system for law enforcement in Europe and is undergoing reforms.A new alert category for "unknown wanted persons" will be included. Alerts will also be issued on terrorist offences and on anyone that has an entry ban.Plans are also underway to include an automated fingerprint identification service that would allow border guards to one day search SIS using fingerprints.Julian King, the EU commissioner for security, told MEPs in March that the fingerprint system is needed to catch people who use fake IDs.SIS has been touted as the biggest and most successful EU-wide security database, with hits increasing from around 150,000 in 2015 to more than 200,000 last year.Authorities had queried the database almost 4 billion times in 2016, a 40 percent increase from 2015.

Eurogroup makes 'progress' on Greek deal By Eric Maurice-euobserver

Valletta, Malta, 7. Apr, 16:24-Eurozone finance ministers swapped Brussels' brand new Europa building for old Valletta's Grand Master's Palace, but they came out on Friday (7 April) with the usual optimistic line about Greece."We have achieved significant progress since the last meeting," Eurogroup president Jeroen Dijsselbloem said at a press conference after a meeting in Malta's capital.After months of delays and weeks of difficult talks, ministers endorsed an agreement between Greece and its creditors - the European Commission, the European Central Bank, the European Stability Mechanism, and the International Monetary Fund (IMF).But the agreement will only allow experts from the creditor institutions to go back to Athens and try to reach a so-called staff-level agreement on reforms to be made by the Greek government.The reforms are needed to conclude the second review of the bailout programme that was launched in 2015, and to allow the disbursement of a new tranche of financial aid.In order to close the review, the Eurogroup will however need to agree on additional issues - Greece's fiscal targets for few first years following the end of the programme in 2018, and the sustainability of Greek debts."We have an agreement on the overarching elements of policy in terms of size, timing and sequencing of the reforms," Dijsselbloem said on Friday.-Reform package-He said that Greece and its creditors have agreed on the principle of a reform package, designed to cut spending by 2 percent of GDP.One percent will come from cuts in the highest pensions by 2019 and the other percent will mainly come from an increase in the income tax threshold.Details based on this agreement in principle will be discussed by the Greek government and the institutions' missions when it returns to Athens, most likely next week. A reform of the labour market is also still on the table.To compensate for the effect of these austerity measures, the Greek government will be able to pass "expansionary measures" that would be implemented "on the assumption that the economy is doing better and the fiscal path is doing better than expected," Dijsselbloem explained.Greek finance minister Euclid Tsakalotos told journalists that the measures will address social issues such as "child poverty, employment, housing, investment, or old age pensioners' contributions to medical costs".The spending-cut reforms required by creditors and the measures requested by the Greek government to help people most hit by the crisis will be tabled at the same time in the Greek parliament, and will have to be adopted before the Eurogroup closes the review.-Helping Greece-"This is a balanced agreement," EU finance commissioner Pierre Moscovici said at the press conference, adding that it would "help Greece get on its feet again"."The Greek people deserve the conclusion of the second review," he said.What Dijsselbloem called the "final stretch" before a deal and the disbursement of the next loan is likely to be difficult.Greece, its eurozone partners and the IMF will have to agree on the country's fiscal targets and future debt relief measures.They need to decide how many years Greece will require to reach a budget primary surplus - the budget surplus before debt payments - of 3.5 percent of GDP after 2018.The longer the target will be set - between three and five years, according to sources - the more Greece will have to maintain austerity measures.The decision also has an impact on the sustainability of the Greek debt, with the IMF insisting that it cannot stay in the bailout programme if the debt is unsustainable.-Jigsaw puzzle-"The whole agreement depends on all the pieces of the jigsaw puzzle," noted Tsakalotos.In a statement after Friday's Eurogroup, the Washington-based institution said that there were "good prospects for successfully concluding discussions on outstanding policy issues".It added that its eurozone partners will have to come up with "satisfactory assurances on a credible strategy to restore debt sustainability" before it can decide whether or not it will stay in the programme.The IMF says that the fiscal targets are too difficult to reach and that measures must be taken to reduce the weigh of the debt on the Greek economy. But the staunchest opponent of that position is Germany, which at the same time says that the bailout programme can only continue with the IMF."It is basically a discussion between Germany and the IMF," an EU official told EUobserver.A diplomat from a member state, also implicitly referring to Germany and the IMF, noted that part of the delay in recent talks was because "some want to talk about the debt as late as possible".All leaders in Malta pointed out that it was urgent to close the second review in order to dissipate uncertainties over the Greek economy, and also to avoid a crisis when Greece has to repay more than €7 billion in July."We need a deal very quickly," Tsakalotos insisted, adding that "very few actors want a new Greek crisis".

Ancient Rome treasures discovered during subway dig on show-[Associated Press]-YAHOONEWS-April 8, 2017

ROME (AP) — The long-delayed project to extend Rome's subway system has brought treasures of the past to the surface and allowed them to be showcased at one of the city's new subway stations.Rome city officials this week unveiled the Metro C archaeological exhibit, which features amphora, marble panels, coins and even peach pits dating back to the Roman era.The permanent exhibit will be on view as passengers descend into the three-story San Giovanni subway station, which is expected to open in 2018."For those who will use this metro — this station in particular — it's a full immersion into the history of Rome and of this site," said archaeologist Rossella Rea, who is in charge of the dig for the Italian government.Archaeologists said their surveys, which reached an unusually deep 20 meters (yards), indicated the site was once a huge farm. Peach pits, seashells and other organic remains have been found intact and are featured in the exhibit.Lines on the southeastern section of Metro C have been operational since 2015, while northern lines near the city center are still under construction. The project has been delayed for years by the repeated discovery of ancient underground treasures.

Liberals want to move up pot legalization to avoid Canada Day celebrations-[CBC]-yahoonews-April 8, 2017

With long-awaited marijuana legislation set to be announced next week, the federal government is having second thoughts about legalizing cannabis on Canada Day.The Trudeau government still plans to go ahead with its plan to make weed legal for recreational use. But a senior government source says the initial target of July 1, 2018 as the implementation date will be changed to "on or before July 1, 2018."The change reflects some internal concerns over legalizing a recreational drug on the country's birthday. Bill Blair, the Liberal government's point man on pot, told the Canadian Press he wanted the focus of Canada Day to be Canada — not cannabis."I'm probably out on a limb on this one but ... I don't believe July 1 should be an implementation date for anything; it is a day of celebration for the anniversary and founding of our country," Blair told CP."I don't think that's an appropriate date. That's my opinion."-By next summer-But what isn't changing is the federal government's desire to fully deliver on its marijuana legalization promise by next summer — despite suggestions that the timeline may be too ambitious.The federal government believes its timeline to have a nation-wide system for the distribution and sale of marijuana is achievable — even though much of the heavy lifting will have to be done by the provinces."We campaigned on this," said the senior government official. "We told them it was going to happen."It appears that Ottawa is counting on the potential profits from marijuana sales to speed things along at the provincial level. Colorado legalized marijuana in 2014 and, with a population smaller than Quebec and Ontario, that state is doing more than $1 billion US in legal sales a year.The hope is that at least a few of the provinces will move quickly to finalize their system for retail sales and that will have a pace-car effect for the slower moving jurisdictions.-Bill details coming next week-The marijuana legislation is set to be unveiled next week. But CBC News reported many of the details last month. It will broadly follow the recommendation of a federally appointed task force that was chaired by former liberal Justice Minister Anne McLellan.The federal government will be in charge of making sure the country's marijuana supply is safe and secure and Ottawa will license producers.But the provinces will have the right to decide how the marijuana is distributed and sold. Provincial governments will also have the right to set the price.While Ottawa will set a minimum age of 18 to buy marijuana, the provinces will have the option of setting a higher age limit if they wish.As for Canadians who want to grow their own marijuana, they will be limited to four plants per household.Legalizing marijuana was one of the more controversial promises Prime Minister Justin Trudeau made as he campaigned to become prime minister.In their platform the Liberals said it was necessary to "legalize, regulate and restrict access to marijuana" in order to keep drugs "out of the hands of children, and the profits out of the hands of criminals."The Liberals had promised to introduce legislation by the Spring of 2017. Announcing the legislation next week will allow the party to hit that deadline.


Alberta says growing number of fentanyl deaths, Liberals call for action-[The Canadian Press]-YAHOONEWS-April 7, 2017

EDMONTON — The Alberta Liberals want the province to declare an emergency after a new report shows a growing number drug overdose deaths linked to fentanyl.The government report says 349 people died in the province last year from the street opioid painkiller.In the first six weeks of this year there were 51 deaths — almost twice the number during the same time last year.Liberal Leader David Swann says the numbers are very troubling because such deaths are preventable.Swann, a physician and former medical officer of health, says the Alberta government needs to do more to deal with the crisis.He says Alberta should have a mental health and addiction officer and develop a co-ordinated strategy to reduce such deaths."We need increased public education efforts and timelier access to harm reduction, including opiate replacement therapy and safe injection sites," he said Friday in a release."Once again, I urge this government to declare a state of emergency. Let's do everything in our power to get ahead of these deaths so that more lives are not lost with each new quarterly report."The Canadian Press.
