Crews push to contain California fires, search for bodiesBy Jim Christie SANTA ROSA, Calif. (Reuters) - Crews fought their way across rugged, steep terrain on Tuesday in a push to gain full control of the deadliest wildfires in California history, as search-and-rescue teams picked through an ashy moonscape of destroyed homes looking for victims. "There are still some concerns that if the west winds come up or we get some erratic winds they could push our lines, but as of right now we're looking pretty good," Steve Crawford, a fire operations chief, told reporters at a briefing in Sonoma County in the heart of California's celebrated wine country. Already 41 people have been confirmed killed in the fires, which erupted last week and were driven by dry, hot winds into Northern California communities, giving residents little or no chance to escape.

Defeated Isil 'cowards' take the bus home as Raqqa, capital of terrorism, is defeated at last
Tue, 17 Oct 2017 10:18:50 -0400

Defeated Isil 'cowards' take the bus home as Raqqa, capital of terrorism, is defeated at lastThe Islamic State?s ?capital? fell on Tuesday after US-backed forces declared victory in the Syrian city where the jihadist group plotted attacks on the West. Brig Gen Talal Silo, the spokesman for the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces, said that clashes with Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil) fighters in Raqqa had stopped, ending their three-year reign of terror in the city.  ?The SDF is now in control of the former capital of terrorism," Mr Sllo told the Daily Telegraph. ?A formal declaration will be made from the city soon, after the clearing operations end. Raqqa is still full of landmines.? The fighters limped out from their final redoubt in Raqqa?s central hospital on Tuesday and onto waiting buses.

He has been battling Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil) militants in the city since the start of the offensive in June and was there to watch some of the last of them flee. ?It was difficult to see them so close and to just watch them leave,? the former currency trader from Oxford told the Telegraph.

Macer Gifford (@macergifford) October 17, 2017 After a devastating four-month battle, the remaining 200-odd fighters gave up their fight and agreed to an evacuation deal which saw them bused out of the city to the last-remaining slivers of territory still under the jihadists?s control to the south. The final black flag was taken down from the city?s stadium, which had been used as a prison during Isil's brutal three-year rule and had become synonymous with the group?s violent excesses. Photos showed Kurdish female fighters of the SDF waving their own yellow flag in its place. Fighters of Syrian Democratic Forces gesture the "V" sign in Raqqa, Syria October 17, 2017 Credit:  REUTERS All that was left to do was check the many tunnels Isil had dug for sleeper cells and IEDs, Talal Silo, the SDF"s spokesman, said. ?A formal declaration will be made from the city soon, after the clearing operations end. Raqqa is still full of landmines,? Mr Silo told the Daily Telegraph. ?But the SDF is now in control of the former capital of terrorism." During the campaign for Raqqa the city suffered massive devastation from Isil's mines as well as from US-led coalition air strikes which left most of its buildings levelled and in ruins. The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights monitor put the overall death toll for the battle at 3,250, including fighters and civilians, but said hundreds were still missing or unaccounted for. Five British volunteers were also killed. Isil?s use of civilians as human shields forced the coalition to rely on coordinated air strikes, at a heavy cost. Fighters of Syrian Democratic Forces are seen in Raqqa, Syria October 17, 2017 Credit: REUTERS ?They never fought us face-to-face like men,? Mr Gifford told the Telegraph by phone. ?They would just shoot at us from sniper positions and drive at us with car bombs. ?They surrounded themselves with women and children, which they used as protection against the strikes.?   An international charity group says tens of thousands of people who did manage to flee are now in desperate need of aid and that the nearby camps are "bursting at the seams."   With the high levels of destruction reported in and around the city, most families have nowhere to return home and are likely to stay in camps for months or years to come. The militants seized the city in early 2014 in a blitzkrieg offensive across Syria and neighbouring Iraq, making it the headquarters of its self-styled "caliphate". At one point they controlled approximately a third of Syria and a third of Iraq, making up a quasi-state the size of Britain. So confident was the group during its height they threatened to conquer Rome.   Col. Ryan Dillon, spokesman for the anti-Isil coalition, said on Tuesday the fall of Raqqa would deny Isil the "well spring" that provided planning and support for terror operations in Syria and around the world.   The effect the loss of the city, which had become the administrative heart of the Islamic State, will have on the group cannot be underestimated. It was from Raqqa its miliants filmed their slickly produced and often gory propaganda videos which lured thousands of recruits from around the world to join them. They plotted the most devastating attacks on Europe from the city?s internet cafes. It was from the hills outside Raqqa Briton Mohammed Emwazi, otherwise known as Jihadi John, executed two of his countrymen in videos which shocked the world in 2014. The jihadists would continue to rule over the city?s residents with an ultra-conservative and brutal interpretation of Sharia law for another three years. Schools were closed and children were sent to mosques for indoctrination into jihad and camps for military training. Adults were stoned to death and beheaded for infractions as minor as smoking or listening to music. But the group's fortunes changed dramatically after Iraqi forces began their offensive to retake its most prized territory of Mosul last year. And in recent months in Syria they have been forced back into a strip of the Euphrates valley and surrounding desert. A fighter from Syrian Democratic Forces takes a selfie as he stands near rubble at a damaged site in Raqqa Credit: Reuters Now more than 85 per cent of Isil?s territory in Syria has been liberated and around 90 per cent in Iraq. But experts say Isil will remain a serious threat for the foreseeable future, despite its significant territorial losses. And that while the battle may be over, the war is yet to be won. ?Today marks the end of Caliphate ISIS, but the beginning of Insurgency ISIS,? said Hassan Hassan, a resident fellow at the Tahrir Institute for Middle East Policy and co-author of ISIS: Inside the Army of Terror. Charlie Winter, a senior research fellow at the International Centre for the Study of Radicalisation and Political Violence, warned that its ideology would linger long after its "caliphate" was gone. "I don't think it's simply a question of taking away the Islamic State's territory and the Islamic State's idea disappears," he said. He said the group saw itself as successful, having "managed to declare a caliphate and keep it going" - something unprecedented in modern jihadism.   Additional reporting by Luna Safwan in Beirut

Remains found in crocodile believed to be missing Queensland pensioner
Mon, 16 Oct 2017 23:23:23 -0400

Remains found in crocodile believed to be missing Queensland pensionerHuman remains have been found inside a crocodile that is believed to have killed a pensioner in Queensland last week.  The 4.3-metre estuarine crocodile was captured on Monday night at the Mowbray River near Craiglie in northeast Australia, close to where Anne Cameron went missing from an aged care facility near Port Douglas seven days ago. The 79-year-old is thought to have become disorientated on a walk and wandered into dense bushland. Police later found clothing, a walking stick with her name and human remains beside a crocodile-infested creek near Four Mile Beach, about a mile from the aged care facility. Wildlife officers set traps  to try to catch the creature that is believed to have killed Ms Cameron. The captured animal was examined in Cairns on Tuesday, with human remains found inside. A Saltwater Crocodile is pictured at the Australian Reptile Park in Sydney  Credit:  Ian Waldie/Getty Images "Investigations continue with officers preparing a report for the coroner," police said. Isabella Eggins, a granddaughter of Ms Cameron, said  last week the family feared she had died in tragic circumstances. ?It is my deep regret to inform you that following an extensive search and the discovery of certain items as a result of that search, we have the firm belief that my mother Anne Cameron has passed away in tragic circumstances,? Ms Eggins said on Facebook. Saltwater crocodiles, which can grow up to seven metres long and weigh more than a tonne, are a common feature of the vast continent's tropical north and kill an average of two people a year. A series of crocodile attacks in the region in recent years has prompted calls for the state government to order a cull ? a move that has so far been rejected. Ms Cameron's family also said they did not want to see any crocs culled. "The crocodiles... are not responsible for being crocodiles, and doing what crocodiles do," her son Craig Eggins said, according to the Cairns Post.

Kenyan election official quits, saying re-run election will not be 'credible' 
Wed, 18 Oct 2017 05:58:06 -0400

Kenyan election official quits, saying re-run election will not be 'credible' Kenya?s top election official threw next week?s rerun of the country?s presidential election into doubt on Wednesday, saying that political intimidation and interference meant he could no longer guarantee the credibility of the vote. Hours after one of his colleagues resigned and fled the country saying she feared for her life, Wafula Chebukati, chairman of the electoral commission, also threatened to quit, deepening a political crisis that risks upending one of Africa?s most stable states. Next Thursday?s election marks Kenya?s second attempt in three months to choose a leader after the supreme court overturned President Uhuru Kenyatta?s re-election in August, citing ?irregularities and illegalities? in the transmission of results. But the ruling, unprecedented in Africa, has worsened rather than resolved Kenya?s political impasse. Mr Kenyatta?s challenger, Raila Odinga, withdrew from the rerun earlier this month after electoral officials he accused of rigging the first vote refused to resign. Mr Chebukati accused both the government and the opposition of resorting to tactics that, he said, threatened to pitch Kenya into a ?worse situation? than the violent aftermath of an election in 2007 that claimed more than 1,300 lives. Kenya's opposition party leader, Raila Odinga, speaking at Chatham House in London on October 13 Credit:  REUTERS But Mr Odinga was swift to claim vindication after the chairman said his efforts to ensure a transparent election had been blocked by four commissioners who have been accused of acting at the behest of the president?s ruling party. ?I?ve made several attempts to make critical changes but all my motions have been defeated by a majority of the commissioners,? Mr Chebukati said. ?Under such conditions it is difficult to guarantee a free, fair and credible election.? ?I would rather go out with my name intact and my head lifted high than be part of a process where personal interests dwarf the interests of the nation.? Mr Chebukati indicated he would carry out his threat to quit unless electoral staff accused of bungling August?s election stepped down, his fellow commissioners stopped serving ?partisan interests? and President Kenyatta and Mr Odinga agreed to negotiate. A police officer prepares to fire a tear gas to disperse supporters of Raila Odinga in downtown Nairobi, Kenya, 16 October 2017 Credit:  EPA He also demanded an end to opposition protesters chasing away electoral staff trying to prepare polling stations. Were Mr Chebukati to resign, the election ? which is constitutionally required to be held by Nov 1st ? risks being postponed as the chairman of the commission alone has the power to declare the result.  Mr Chebukati?s decision to air his grievances publicly came after Roselyn Akombe, one of his six fellow commissioners, resigned and fled to New York, raised similar concerns and said she feared for her safety after receiving threats. A senior electoral manager with responsibility for the electronic integrity of the vote, was murdered nine days before the August election. ?The commission in its current state can surely not guarantee a credible election on 26 October 2017,? she said in a statement. ?I do not want to be party to such a mockery to electoral integrity.? Kenyan opposition lawmaker Caleb Amisi Luyai leans through of his car as tear gas billows out Credit: REUTERS In recent days, both President Kenyatta and Mr Odinga appeared to have made some concessions that raised hopes for a negotiated settlement to the crisis. But Mr Odinga has shown little sign of returning to the race. On Wednesday he called for mass protests on election day as part of a strategy to prevent voting taking place in his strongholds ? a move that could lead to the poll being nullified again. As many as 70 people have died in election-related violence since August, the vast majority opposition protesters killed by the security forces.

"Our people have given a strong message to imperialism, to (US President Donald) Trump, to its regional allies and to the local right-wing," Maduro told a news conference after the opposition rejected the results and the US and EU said they were deeply flawed. "It is not going to be an economic war or an induced inflation that makes this people give up," said Maduro, who according to opinion polls has an 80 percent dissatisfaction rating among Venezuelans who are struggling with serious food and medicine shortages and record inflation.

Wanted man turns himself in after losing Facebook bet with police

Wanted man turns himself in after losing Facebook bet with police  A wanted Michigan man has turned himself in after losing a bet he made with police on Facebook. Michael Zaydel had promised to give himself up to police if a Facebook post about an existing arrest warrant received more than 1,000 shares. The cocky 21-year-old even promised to bring Redford Township Police Department (RTPD) officers a dozen doughnuts if they were victorious in the challenge. ?I?m not worried about it,? he wrote. ?If your next post gets 1,000 shares I?ll turn myself in with a dozen doughnuts and that?s a promise. ?And I?ll pick up every piece of litter around your public schools.? In a follow-up post, the department said he ?may or may not be a man of his word,? adding, ?it is our experience everyone gets caught at some point. He has drawn a lot of attention to himself, and that makes it hard to hide from reality.? The fugitive eventually surrendered to police, fulfilling his promise by arriving at the station with doughnuts and a bagel. ?Zaydel made good on his promise to turn himself in to RTPD for his outstanding warrants,? the department said. ?He walked in on his own, and not only did he bring the doughnuts, he brought one bagel! We would again like to express our gratitude for the support of all who followed this, shared it, and left us positive feedback.? Mr Zaydel was sentenced to 39 days in jail after pleading guilty to breaking the terms of his probation. Is this the world's most meta mugshot?
