The ambush drew attention to the little-known U.S. military presence in Niger, and it came under further scrutiny when President Donald Trump’s handling of condolence messages to the families of the dead U.S. soldiers was criticized by lawmakers in Washington. Investigators found the remains on Nov. 12 and military medical examiners have verified that the remains were Johnson's, Pentagon spokeswoman Dana White said in a statement.

  • Lebanon's premier Hariri suspends resignation after return to Beirut

    Golocal247.com news

    Lebanon’s prime minister has announced  he is suspending the resignation he made from Saudi Arabia more than two weeks ago, easing a political crisis that has rocked the country. Saad Hariri landed back in Beirut on Wednesday after 17 days away, in time for Lebanon’s independence day celebrations. President Michel Aoun had said he would not accept his resignation from Riyadh and told Mr Hariri he would have to tender it in person, saying he believed he was coerced from his Saudi backers. After a meeting between the two, Mr Hariri announced he was postponing his decision pending talks. Former Prime Minister of Lebanon Saad Hariri visits the grave of former Prime Minister of Lebanon, Rafik Hariri, who was assassinated, upon his arrival to Beirut  Credit: Anadolu "I presented today my resignation to President Aoun and he urged me to wait before offering it and to hold onto it for more dialogue about its reasons and political background, and I showed responsiveness," Mr Hariri said in surprising conciliatory remarks. Mr Hariri, a dual Saudi citizen who once enjoyed Riyadh’s backing, addressed hundreds of supporters of his Future Movement party outside his residence in Beirut. “I’m staying with you, I will continue with you…  to be a line of defense for Lebanon, Lebanon's stability and Lebanon's Arabism,” he told the crowd. Questions remain over whether the resignation will stand, forcing negotiations on a new government, or if he might withdraw it. A resignation brings down the government and the president then engages in consultations to select a new prime minister to form a cabinet. French President Emmanuel Macron (4R) and his wife Brigitte Macron (R) welcome Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri (2R), his wife Lara Bachir El-Alzm (3R) and their son Houssam (L) at the Elysee Presidential Palace on November 18 Credit: AFP The resignation is seen by many as the first step in an unprecedented Saudi intervention in Lebanese politics and the opening up of a new front in its proxy war with foe Iran. In Lebanon, divided for more than a decade between a pro-Saudi camp and a Tehran-backed alliance, that process typically takes months of political wrangling. Mr Hariri announced his resignation in a televised address from Saudi Arabia on November 4, stunning the nation and plunging the country in turmoil. He has been silent since, and Lebanese are hoping his arrival back home will help clear up the mysterious circumstances surrounding his resignation.   Riyadh has warned of its concerns of Iranian-backed Hizbollah’s growing influence in the government. Saudi had hoped its meddling would have seen political parties rally against an emboldened Hizbollah, but instead they rallied they jointly condemned the kingdom’s breach of its sovereignty.

  • Ann Maguire murder: Parents should be made to sign contracts with Facebook and monitor children's accounts, says coroner 

    Golocal247.com news

    Parents should be made to sign contracts compelling them to monitor their children’s Facebook messages, the coroner in the Ann Maguire murder inquest has claimed. Under proposals due to be presented to the Digital minister Matt Hancock, parents would be given the right to pry on their children’s accounts because their “responsibility transcends” a teenager’s “entitlement to privacy”. The suggestions would also require teens aged 13 to 18 to have a named parent on their application to open an account, and make parents contractually obliged to monitor their communications. Coroner Kevin McLoughlin outlined the proposals yesterday as a jury ruled that the murder of Spanish teacher Ann Maguire could have been prevented. Teenage killer of teacher Ann Maguire told ten friends 'precisely' what he planned to do Delivering a conclusion of unlawful killing, the jury at Wakefield Coroner’s Court said that her death had resulted from “missed opportunities to share and record the problem behaviour” of her killer. It comes more than two years after Ms Maguire, an employee of Corpus Christi College, Leeds was stabbed to death by pupil Will Cornick during a lesson at the school on 28 April 2014. During the inquest, the jury heard that Cornick, then 15, had exchanged a series of messages on Facebook with friends in which he professed his hatred for Ms Maguire and his desire to harm her. In one Facebook exchange, he expressed his loathing for the 61-year-old and offered a friend “a tenner” for them to kill her. Another associate of Cornick told police officers in an interview that Cornick had said of Mrs Maguire: “I don’t want to hurt her, I want to kill her.” Cornick was 15 years old when he stabbed to death Mrs Maguire, 61, as she taught a class at Corpus Christi Catholic College, in Leeds The teenager told 10 pupils of his intention to kill Mrs Maguire and other members of staff, and showed four of them the 34-inch knife he later used in her brutal murder. Despite his litany of threats, none of the pupils reported the outbursts to the school. Their conversations with Cornick only surfaced in pre-inquest hearings, and it later emerged that they had never been questioned about them by police officers or teaching staff after her murder. In statements following Mrs Maguire’s murder, Cornick’s parents claimed they had no prior knowledge of their son’s intentions. Commenting on the disclosures, Mr McLoughlin said that Cornick’s online threats had been “sinister and grotesque”, adding that he believed that “parents have a responsibility to protect children”. In order to do this, he said that they should be given “access to supervise content”, adding: “any parent’s responsibility transcends any teenager’s entitlement to privacy.” A Facebook spokesman said: "We want everyone to feel safe when using Facebook. We work closely with online safety experts including the UK Safer Internet Centre and Childnet International to make sure that young people and their parents know how technology works and what they need to think about before sharing online."

In a period when the Red Army seemed on the verge of collapse, a lumbering forty-eight-ton heavy tank that could absorb German tank shells like so many spitballs was one factor that bought it badly needed time. The Red Army was an early practitioner of mechanized warfare, with thousands of light T-26 and BT tanks in its operational units when Germany invaded.
