Israel is 11th happiest nation in the world; US slides to 18th-Jewish state maintains its high ranking on list of 156 countries for fifth successive year, but gets less praise for attitude to migrants; Finland tops list, PA is at 104-By TOI staff and AP-14 March 2018

Israel has retained its spot as the 11th happiest country in the world for the fifth year running, according to the United Nations’ annual “World Happiness Report,” published Wednesday.The Palestinian Territories came in 104th place, Lebanon in 88th, Jordan in 90th and Syria in 150th in the listing of 156 countries.The report, which also for the first time evaluated 117 countries by the happiness and well-being of their immigrants, notes that Jews who immigrated to Israel from the former Soviet Union have much better lives than before they immigrated, even though they still have problems. It ranks Israel 12th on its list for “happiness for the foreign born.”However, it also places Israel, which turns 70 in May, among the countries that are less tolerant of migrants, and that do not accept migrants openly.Israel’s overall No. 11 position was helped by its health system; the report placed the Jewish state in sixth position for improvement in life expectancy, after Japan, Iceland, Italy, Switzerland and Canada.World Happiness Index 2018 (World Happiness Report)-In the US, by contrast, life expectancy was 4.3 lower than the average of these top five countries, and that gap “likely widened further in 2016 in view of the absolute decline in US life expectancy.”On tolerance towards newcomers, the document found that while the least accepting countries were those in Europe that have been directly affected by the recent migrant crisis, four were in the Middle East and North Africa — among them Israel, Egypt, Iraq and Jordan. The others were in Afghanistan and Pakistan, Myanmar, Thailand and Mongolia.Surveying 156 countries on the basis of factors such as citizens’ freedom, gross domestic product, expenditure on health and lack of corruption, the annual survey placed Scandinavian countries at the top. Fans of skiing, saunas and Santa Claus would not be surprised to hear Finland is the happiest place to live.Europe’s Nordic nations, none particularly diverse, have dominated the index since it first was produced in 2012. In reaching No. 1, Finland nudged neighboring Norway into second place.Rounding out the Top 10 are Denmark, Iceland, Switzerland, Netherlands, Canada, New Zealand, Sweden and Australia. The United States fell to 18th place from 14th last year, and the UK was at 19.Relatively homogenous, Finland has about 300,000 foreigners and residents with foreign roots, out of its 5.5 million people. Its largest immigrant groups come from other European nations, but there also are communities from Afghanistan, China, Iraq and Somalia.John Helliwell, a co-editor of the World Happiness Report and professor emeritus of economics at the University of British Columbia, noted all the top-10 nations scored highest in overall happiness and the happiness of immigrants. He said a society’s happiness seems contagious.“The most striking finding of the report is the remarkable consistency between the happiness of immigrants and the locally born,” Helliwell said. “Those who move to happier countries gain, while those who move to less happy countries lose.”Meik Wiking, CEO of the Copenhagen-based Happiness Research Institute, said the five Nordic countries that reliably rank high in the index “are doing something right in terms of creating good conditions for good lives,” something newcomers have noticed.He said the happiness revealed in the survey derives from healthy amounts of both personal freedom and social security that outweigh residents having to pay “some of the highest taxes in the world.”“Briefly put, (Nordic countries) are good at converting wealth into well-being,” Wiking said. The finding on the happiness of immigrants “shows the conditions that we live under matter greatly to our quality of life, that happiness is not only a matter of choice.”The United States was 11th in the first index and has never been in the Top 10. To explain its fall to 18th, the report’s authors cited several factors.“The US is in the midst of a complex and worsening public health crisis, involving epidemics of obesity, opioid addiction, and major depressive disorder that are all remarkable by global standards,” the report said.It added that the “sociopolitical system” in the United States produces more income inequality — a major contributing factor to unhappiness — than other countries with comparatively high incomes.The United States also has seen declining “trust, generosity and social support, and those are some of the factors that explain why some countries are happier than others,” Wiking said.On Friday, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu pointed to Israel’s consistently high scores on the global Happiness Index as evidence that Israelis, particularly young Israelis, were aware of his contributions to the country.Speaking to Fox News talk-radio host Mark Levin during an official trip to the US, Netanyahu — embroiled in a series of corruption investigations — said, “And people say, well, ‘How can that be? Must be a fluke,’ but [Israel’s ranking] keeps going up and they say, ‘How can it be? It’s a country in this horrible neighborhood, you’ve got terrorism, you’ve got radical Islam, you’ve got challenges,’ but it comes up ahead of most countries in the world,” said Netanyahu.“They say, ‘Yeah, but that’s the old timers, they are already fixed, their lives are okay, but that’s the old people, what about the young people? You know where they [the youth] come up [on the index]? Number five! Which means they have a real confidence in the future, and that’s because I think they appreciate and… I know that’s what drives me and animates me: How to ensure that the Jewish state has a permanent future of security and prosperity… and peace if we can get it. The people of Israel I think do identify that.“So the answer is I think they do understand. All of them? No. Most of them, yes.”

Hamas claims to know who tried to assassinate Palestinian PM-As arrests reported, terror group deputy minister refuses to reveal identities of suspects in bombing of Hamdallah's convoy, asserts Israel to blame-By AFP and TOI staff-14 March 2018

A Hamas official said Wednesday that the terror group knows the identities of perpetrators of the attempted assassination of Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah in Gaza a day prior.“The interior ministry in Gaza has the names and other information of those linked to the bombing of the prime minister’s convoy,” Gaza’s deputy interior minister Tawfiq Abu Naim told Palestinian local media outlets.Though he did not reveal the identity of the suspects, Abu Naim fingered Israel, saying the “occupation is the one beneficiary” of the attempted hit.Hamas chief Ismail Haniyeh phoned Hamdallah hours after the explosion and issued a statement claiming the two had agreed to “blame Israel and its collaborators” for being behind the explosion. But Yusef al Mahmoud, spokesperson for the PA government, later denied that Hamdallah had received any phone call from Haniyeh, and the PA has said it holds Hamas responsible for the attack since it rules Gaza.The Hamas Interior Ministry in Gaza said it had launched a “high-level investigative committee” into the bomb attack, which was a further blow to faltering reconciliation talks between Hamas and president Mahmoud Abbas’s Fatah party.It said a number of suspects were being questioned after the roadside bomb targeted Hamdallah’s convoy shortly after he entered Gaza, leaving him uninjured but lightly wounding six guards.“The door is open to anyone who wants to participate in the investigation,” said Abu Naim in an earlier statement.A minister in Hamdallah’s government told Voice of Palestine radio that Hamas informed them there were two 33-pound bombs, the second of which was planted 33 yards away but failed to explode.A senior Palestinian official told the Ynet news site that Hamas had arrested several employees of a pair of cellular companies, who the terror group suspects allowed the bomb planters to use their services in order to communicate.The source added that a cell phone of one of the companies was used to detonate the explosives. Hamas security forces arrested several workers from these Gaza companies after they refused to cooperate in the investigation.A senior official told AFP on condition of anonymity that Abbas decided no members of Hamdallah’s government would travel to Gaza in the short term “due to the security problems.”A number of officials have been travelling to the enclave in recent months to discuss reconciliation.Hamas seized control of Gaza from Abbas’s internationally recognized government more than a decade ago but agreed in October to hand power back.Yet the deal has all but collapsed, with the two sides accusing each other of responsibility, and Tuesday’s explosion further exacerbated tensions.After the attack, Abbas said he held Hamas responsible as the de facto power in the strip, though stopping short of directly accusing the group of carrying out the bombing.Hamas shot back, saying such rapid accusations were unhelpful before in turn blaming Israel.Other potential suspects include smaller, more radical terror groups that are opposed to Hamas but operate in Gaza, or a Hamas splinter group.There has been no claim of responsibility.Hamdallah said the attack would not end his government’s commitment to continue with reconciliation and again called on Hamas to hand over all power in Gaza.“We are talking about internal security — the police and the civil defense,” he said. “Without security there won’t be a government.”-Salafist suspects? Jamal al-Fadi, a political scientist in Gaza, said the aim of the attack was to “sabotage any chance for reconciliation.”He said potential suspects are those who have an interest in maintaining the split.“It could be a group that split from Hamas for ideological reasons, such as a militant Salafi group,” he told AFP.In October, Abu Naim, the Hamas security chief who issued Wednesday’s statement, was wounded by a car bomb after leaving a mosque.Hamas officials privately admit the assassination attempt was by Salafists, rather than Israel, and like Tuesday’s attack the explosion was relatively small.The UN envoy to the Middle East peace process, Nickolay Mladenov, condemned Tuesday’s attack and called on Hamas to hand over control in Gaza to the recognised government.Mladenov has warned of the consequences of the desperate humanitarian suffering in the strip, saying in January that Gaza “risks exploding in our face again.”Hamdallah traveled to Rome Wednesday for a meeting of international donors aimed at raising funds for the United Nations’ agency for Palestinian refugees, which is facing desperate shortages after the US froze tens of millions of dollars in aid.The White House held a conference on the deteriorating humanitarian situation in Gaza on Tuesday, but no Palestinian officials attended.They have refused to meet with US President Donald Trump’s administration since he broke with longstanding US policy in December by recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.

Polish president likens EU membership to past occupations-On heels of Holocaust law fallout, Andrzej Duda complains European Union membership allows 'people in far away capitals' to make decisions on Warsaw's behalf-By AFP-TOI-14 March 2018

Polish President Andrzej Duda has likened Poland’s membership of the European Union to the successive occupations of the country by Russia, Austria and Prussia, press reports said Wednesday.He said that today, as during the 123 years between 1795 and 1918 when Poles answered to an occupying power, “in far away capitals, they make decisions for us… and in reality we are working on behalf of others.”Speaking at an event in southwestern Poland marking 100 years since the country’s sovereignty was restored following World War I, Duda said: “We have today a sovereign and independent Poland where I believe… we will live better and better. Talk about it to your children.”To people who say the European Union is more important than Poland, Duda said “everyone should remember the 123 years of partitions” when the country answered to occupying powers.“People would say (at the time), maybe it’s better, there won’t be any more quarrels, uprisings… we’ll finally have peace,” he said.But they “soon realized that while the wars continued… we don’t decide for ourselves anymore, now somewhere far away, in faraway capitals they make decisions for us, they take the money we earn through our work, and in reality we work on behalf of others.”Poland, which joined the EU in 2004, is the top beneficiary of funds from Brussels, netting some $12.4 billion a year.Duda is a close ally of the ruling right-wing Law and Justice (PiS) party, which came to power in 2015. Since then, relations between Warsaw and the European Union have soured, mainly over controversial justice reforms that put the courts under government control.Critics at home and abroad believe the court reforms introduced by the PiS threaten the separation of powers, and in December the EU launched unprecedented disciplinary proceedings.The EU’s censure could ultimately lead to Poland losing its voting rights in the bloc.The comments came at the tail end of a diplomatic crisis between Israel and Poland over anti-Semitism and the Holocaust. The impasse began with the passing of a law in January that criminalizes blaming Poland for Nazi crimes. Several Jewish groups said the law impedes open debate and risks censoring research. Some critics of the law said it whitewashes what they called Polish complicity.These allegations unleashed a wave of anti-Semitic hate speech online and several real-life anti-Semitic incidents, which Azari last month condemned. According to the Never Again watchdog on anti-Semitism, the volume of anti-Semitic hate speech in Poland since January exceeds that observed in the preceding decade combined.Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu last month called “outrageous” the remark of his Polish counterpart, Mateusz Morawiecki, who said in an interview that the Holocaust had not only German, Ukrainian and Polish perpetrators, but Jewish ones, too.The United States has also publicly condemned Poland’s legislation on discourse about the Holocaust and, according to one report, is resolved not to host Poland’s senior leadership until the crisis is resolved.Times of Israel staff contributed to this report.

Anti-austerity Portuguese PM warns of financial crisis risks By Nikolaj Nielsen-MAR 15,18-EUOBSERVER

Strasbourg, Today, 15:36-Portugal's prime minister Antonio Costa told the European Parliament on Wednesday (14 March) that the future stability of the single currency remains at risk.Speaking to a half empty chamber, the socialist prime minister warned against complacency in addressing what he described as structural weaknesses in the eurozone."As long as the economic and monetary union is still incomplete, there will still be a risk of further crises," he said.His speech is part of a series of debates on the future Europe and aimed to present Portugal in a new light, as a country that managed to exit from the depths of a 2008 financial crisis with both renewed growth and a strong social policy."In Portugal, we devised an alternative to the austerity policy, focusing on higher growth, more and better jobs, and greater equality," he said.The measures imposed at the time by the then-conservative government had slapped additional taxes on incomes and cut benefits and pensions, given the conditions of a €78bn bailout from the European Union and the International Monetary Fund.Those initial results saw education, health and social security plummet as poverty increased and unemployment reached new heights. Many such measures were later reversed by the Costa government in 2015, which then saw a rise in economic growth."The rise in earnings made economic operators more confident resulting in the fastest economic growth since the beginning of the century," said Costa.Last week, the European Commission removed Portugal from the list of countries with serious macro-economic imbalances.Last year, the country exited the so-called excessive deficit procedure. It means Portugal has reined in public debt and managed a budget deficit that no longer misses the EU three-percent target of gross domestic product."Who would have believed this a couple of years ago?" said EU commission president Jean-Claude Juncker, speaking after Costa.Juncker said the employment rate in Portugal continues to increase as a result, in part, of huge efforts by the Portuguese.But Costa also issued warnings and pressed for greater convergence, a term that broadly describes the process behind better European economic integration. It includes, among other things, the completing of the internal market and economic and monetary union."We cannot continue to perceive the eurozone just as a group of economies that compete with each other and the rest of the world. We have to view it as an integrated space," he said.Costa also pressed his case for a bigger European Union budget and said Portugal was prepared to put in more contributions. But budget hawks such as Austria, Denmark, Netherlands and Sweden are likely to reject his views.The issue is part of a larger debate triggered by the UK referendum vote to leave the European Union, followed by a 2016 Bratislava declaration where national leaders pledged their loyalty to the Union.It also feeds into last year's paper from Juncker that sets out five scenarios for the future of Europe ahead of the European Parliament elections in 2019.Costa's address to the parliament was the third by a EU leader in a series on the subject. In April, it will be French president Emmanuel Macron's turn to lay out his vision.

Suspected Florida school shooter silent in court, judge enters not-guilty plea-[Reuters]-By Bernie Woodall-March 14, 2018

(Please note language in paragraph 4, which some readers may find offensive) FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (Reuters) - A Florida judge entered a not-guilty plea for Nikolas Cruz, who faces a possible death penalty for a massacre at a high school last month that killed 17 people and triggered a nationwide walkout of students on Wednesday.Cruz, 19, chose to remain silent during a hearing in Broward County circuit court in Fort Lauderdale. Judge Elizabeth Scherer then entered the not-guilty plea on his behalf for 17 counts each of first-degree murder and attempted murder for the Feb. 14 shooting spree in Parkland.Cruz, wearing an orange jail jumpsuit and shackled at wrists and ankles, sat alone and kept his head bowed in what is normally the jury box while guarded by a dozen deputies.Nine relatives of victims of the attack at Marjorie Stoneman Douglas High School attended the hearing. "Son of a bitch," one said as Cruz was led from the courtroom.State prosecutors said on Tuesday they would seek the death penalty for the massacre in which 17 students and staff were gunned down. Florida Republican Governor Rick Scott has said he supports the death penalty for Cruz.Scherer also instructed Cruz to fill out an application to determine if he can pay for his lawyers. After a presentation on Cruz's finances by his lawyers, she said he had roughly $37,000 and scheduled an April 11 hearing to determine whether he was indigent.Scherer also set April 27 for a hearing for attorneys to agree to a trial date.Cruz's court appearance coincided with students spilling out of classrooms by the thousands waving signs and chanting slogans in a coast-to-coast protest against gun violence prompted by the Florida rampage.One of the protests took place in Fort Lauderdale near the courthouse, in front of the county's public school offices. About 275 students from a half dozen Broward County high schools, some of whom walked more than 15 miles (24 km), demanded an end to gun violence.About 40 of the students staged a "die in," laying down on the sidewalk to protest gun violence in schools. Others chanted, "End gun violence. No more silence."(Reporting by Bernie Woodall; Writing by Ian Simpson; Editing by James Dalgleish and Grant McCool)

Alleged serial killer Bruce McArthur's case put over another month-[The Canadian Press]-YAHOONEWS-March 14, 2018

TORONTO — Accused serial killer Bruce McArthur appeared briefly via video in a Toronto court Wednesday before his case was put over to next month.The 66-year-old self-employed landscaper is charged with the first-degree murder of six men who had ties to the city's LGBTQ community.McArthur appeared via video from a Toronto jail, wearing an orange jumpsuit, and spoke only to say his name during the hearing that lasted a few minutes. The case was put over to April 11.McArthur was arrested in January and charged with the murders of Andrew Kinsman and Selim Esen, who went missing from Toronto's gay village in 2017.Later that month, McArthur was charged with the first-degree murder of Majeed Kayhan, Soroush Mahmudi, and Dean Lisowick. In February, he was also charged in the death of Skandaraj Navaratnam.Jeff Tunney, who knew Lisowick, was at Wednesday's hearing, saying he wanted to attend all of McArthur's court appearances."I feel bad because you're supposed to watch out for your friend and I obviously didn't do a good job on this one," he said. "You try not to blame yourself, but there's always this little bit of what if, maybe if I did this or did that, maybe he wouldn't be where he is today."Tunney said he had lived with Lisowick for a period of time in 2016 and noted that his friend, who police have said had no fixed address, bounced between shelters. Police have said Lisowick was never reported missing.Police have recovered the dismembered remains of seven people from planters found at a home in midtown Toronto where McArthur worked and stored equipment. They've identified three sets of remains so far — those of Kinsman, 49, Mahmudi, 50, and Navaratnam, 40 -Last week, Toronto police took the unusual step of releasing a photograph of a dead man they said was another alleged victim of McArthur's, saying they needed the public's help to identify him.Investigators have been combing through dozens of tips that have come in since then, but the lead detective on the case has said it will take weeks to work through them all.Also last week, Toronto Police Chief Mark Saunders announced he's seeking an external review into how the force handles missing persons cases.Toronto's LGBTQ community had long feared there was a predator targeting men in the gay village and for years had pushed police to do more on the men who vanished from the area.Saunders said he hopes an independent review will "take a hard look at systemic issues of bias of any kind." Toronto's mayor said he supports Saunders' call for an independent review.The force's professional standards unit has also launched an internal investigation related to the McArthur case. Det. Sgt. Hank Idsinga said he came across some "concerning" information during his investigation that triggered the probe.While he wouldn't elaborate on details, two sources close to the investigation said the probe focuses on the actions of police who interviewed McArthur a few years ago about a separate, unrelated incident.Liam Casey, The Canadian Press.

'Enough is enough': US students stage walkouts against guns-[The Canadian Press]-YAHOONEWS-March 14, 2018

Declaring enough is enough, tens of thousands of young people from Maine to Alaska walked out of school to demand action on gun violence Wednesday in one of the biggest student protests since the Vietnam era.Braving snow in New England and threats of school discipline in places like Georgia and Ohio, they carried signs with messages such as "Am I next?," railed against the National Rifle Association and bowed their heads in memory of the 17 dead in the Feb. 14 shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida."We're sick of it," said Maxwell Nardi, a senior at Douglas S. Freeman High School in Henrico, Virginia, just outside Richmond. "We're going to keep fighting, and we're not going to stop until Congress finally makes resolute changes."Around the nation, students left class at 10 a.m. local time for at least 17 minutes — one minute for each of the dead in Florida. At some schools, students didn't go outside but lined the hallways, gathered in gyms and auditoriums or wore orange, the colour used by the movement against gun violence.Over and over, students declared that too many young people have died and that they are tired of going to school every day afraid of getting killed."Enough is enough. People are done with being shot," said Iris Foss-Ober, 18, a senior at Washburn High School in Minneapolis.Some schools applauded students for taking a stand or at least tolerated the walkouts, while others threatened punishment.Protesters called for such measures as tighter background checks on gun purchases and a ban on assault weapons like the one used in the Florida bloodbath.As the demonstrations unfolded, the NRA responded by posting a photo on Twitter of a black rifle emblazoned with an American flag. The caption: "I'll control my own guns, thank you."Walkouts interrupted the day at schools from the elementary level through college, and at some that have witnessed their own mass shootings. About 250 students gathered on a soccer field at Colorado's Columbine High, while students who survived the Sandy Hook Elementary School attack in 2012 walked out of Newtown High School in Connecticut.Students at several schools assembled on sports fields and arranged themselves into hearts, peace signs or the word "Enough." At other schools, students spent the 17 minutes writing letters to lawmakers or registering classmates to vote.At Eagle Rock High in Los Angeles, teenagers a moment of silence as they gathered around a circle of 17 chairs labeled with the names of the Florida victims.In joining the protests, the students followed the example set by many of the survivors of the Florida shooting, who have become gun-control activists, leading rallies, lobbying legislators and giving TV interviews. Their efforts helped spur passage last week of a Florida law curbing access to assault rifles by young people.But whether they can make a difference on Capitol Hill remains to be seen. Congress has shown little inclination to tighten gun laws, and President Donald Trump backed away from his initial support for raising the minimum age for buying an assault rifle to 21.Another protest against gun violence is scheduled in Washington on March 24, with organizers saying it is expected to draw hundreds of thousands.A spokeswoman for Education Secretary Betsy DeVos said DeVos "gives a lot credit to the students who are raising their voices and demanding change.""She hears them, and their input will be valuable as she convenes the Federal Commission on School Safety and works to find solutions to keeping all students safe at school," spokeswoman Liz Hill said.Historians said the demonstrations were shaping up to be one of the largest youth protests in decades."It seems like it's going to be the biggest youth-oriented and youth-organized protest movements going back decades, to the early '70s at least," said David Farber a history professor at the University of Kansas who has studied social change movements."Young people are that social media generation, and it's easy to mobilize them in a way that it probably hadn't been even 10 years ago."The co-ordinated protests Wednesday were organized by Empower, the youth wing of the Women's March, which brought thousands to Washington last year.In the nation's capital, more than 2,000 high-school age protesters observed the 17 minutes of silence by sitting on the ground with their backs turned to the White House as a church bell tolled. The president was out of town.The protesters carried signs with messages such as "Our Blood/Your Hands" and "Never Again" and chanted slogans against the NRA.In New York City, they chanted, "Enough is enough!" In Salt Lake City, the signs read, "Protect kids not guns," ''Fear has no place in school" and "Am I next?"Stoneman Douglas High senior David Hogg, who has emerged as one of the leading student activists, livestreamed the walkout at the tragedy-stricken school on his YouTube channel. He said the students could not be expected to remain in class when there was work to do to prevent gun violence."Every one of these individuals could have died that day. I could have died that day," he said.At Aztec High School in a rural, gun-friendly part of New Mexico where many enjoy hunting and shooting, students aimed to avoid gun politics and opted for a ceremony honouring students killed in shootings — including two who died in a December attack at Aztec."Our kids sit on both ends of the spectrum, and we have a diverse community when it comes to gun rights and gun control," Principal Warman Hall said.About 10 students left Ohio's West Liberty-Salem High School — which witnessed a shooting last year — despite a warning they could face detention or more serious discipline.Police in the Atlanta suburb of Marietta patrolled Kell High, where students were threatened with unspecified consequences if they participated.

ATHENS (Reuters) - At least 11 asylum seekers were treated after clashes with police in a camp on the Greek island of Lesbos on Wednesday and about 200 women and children were evacuated to a nearby warehouse, aid group Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) said.More than 5,000 asylum seekers live in the Moria refugee camp, nearly twice its intended capacity. Protests over living conditions are not uncommon but Wednesday's clashes, which a police spokesman said broke out after a group of about 50 people set fire to garbage bins, are among the most serious in months.A local news website said the violence was sparked by the attempted suicide of a Syrian man in the camp on Monday and said police used tear gas and flash grenades to disperse the crowd.A police official confirmed to Reuters that riot police had to intervene but would not comment on the reported use of tear gas and flash grenades.MSF posted on Twitter that it had provided medical aid."Our team treated eleven people, among them small babies and pregnant women after clashes between #refugees and #Greek police. 200 women and children were evacuated to a nearby warehouse," it said."The situation is calmer, but #Moria continues to be an awful place to live."Lesbos was the gateway to Europe in 2015 for nearly a million refugees and migrants, mostly fleeing Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan. This month marks two years since the European Union and Turkey agreed to stem the flow.Under their deal, anyone who arrives on Greek islands must be returned to Turkey unless they qualify for asylum, but procedures can take several months and protests have erupted over delays, as well as living conditions which have been described by rights groups as unfit for humans.(Reporting by Karolina Tagaris, Editing by Rosalba O'Brien)

Turkish shelling on Kurdish Afrin intensifies, kills 7-[The Canadian Press]-YAHOONEWS-March 14, 2018

BEIRUT — Turkish forces shelled the Kurdish-held northern Syrian town of Afrin on Wednesday killing at least seven people, Kurdish forces reported, as government shelling and airstrikes killed at least 20 civilians in the besieged eastern Ghouta enclave near the capital Damascus, activists said.Shells slammed into the heart of Afrin at dusk at intervals just second apart, forcing residents to rush for cover, according to video published by the People's Protection Units, known as the YPG. The group is being targeted by Turkey as a threat to its national security.A resident reported a worsening bread shortage as tens of thousands of civilians have flocked to the town seeking relief from the advancing forces, shelling, and airstrikes. Azad Mohamed said he waited in line at Afrin's only bakery for eight hours for a few loaves of bread. He said some residents were being turned away without any.Afrin is already suffering from water and power shortages after Turkish forces cut supplies from the countryside, according to the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights. Turkey has bombed several bakeries since launching its offensive on Jan. 20, according to the Observatory.Thousands of residents had already fled Afrin as the Turkish troops approached, heading toward nearby areas controlled by the Syrian government, but hundreds of thousands more remain trapped in the town as Turkish forces and supporting Syrian opposition fighters move to completely encircle it.Turkish airstrikes killed at least eight pro-government militiamen, deployed to help the YPG, south of Afrin, according to the Kurdish military group.A Facebook page of the Nubl and Zahraa villages posted photographs of the eight killed fighters, who were from the villages.There was no comment from the Turkish or Syrian government.Turkey had warned the Syrian government against coming to the aid of the Kurdish militia, which Ankara considers "terrorists" and aligned with Kurdish insurgents inside Turkey.Turkey launched its military offensive into the border region to drive out Syrian Kurdish forces that it considers to be "terrorists" and an extension of Kurdish rebels fighting inside Turkey.Meanwhile, government shelling and airstrikes killed at least 20 civilians in the besieged eastern Ghouta enclave near the capital, Damascus, activists reported.A doctor in the town of Hamouria, inside the besieged zone, said his hospital was overwhelmed with casualties and that for four hours ambulances could not move the wounded for care. He spoke on condition of anonymity out of fear for his own safety. At least 10 civilians were killed in Hamouria.The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights and the Ghouta Media Center said the towns of Arbeen, Jesreen and Saqba were also targeted. Recent government advances have cleaved eastern Ghouta into a northern and southern pocket. The bombing Wednesday focused on the south.Two dozen civilians in need of medical care were evacuated from eastern Ghouta, the latest trickle of urgent cases to leave the area amid an ongoing military offensive as government forces advance.Local authorities in Harasta, one of the towns in eastern Ghouta, meanwhile, said they have been cut off from the rest of the rebel-held enclave, isolating 20,000 residents with no access to medical aid or supplies.A spokesman for a medical charity said the isolation meant that Harasta and another cut-off pocket have not been able to send patients out in the evacuation.A list of least 1,034 patients, including 72 urgent cases, for evacuation from eastern Ghouta has been drawn up, said Mohamad Katoub, of the Syrian American Medical Society, which oversees a number of medical facilities there.The evacuation is part of a deal negotiated by the United Nations to allow urgent medical cases to leave the rebel-held enclave to government-held Damascus for treatment. About 150 patients and their families left the enclave on Tuesday.Government forces have recently split the enclave in two and cut off the towns of Douma and Harasta after their offensive intensified in February. Opposition activists say more than 1,100 civilians have been killed since mid-February.On Wednesday, activists reported continued bombings of the enclave. The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights and Syrian Civil Defence first responders, known as White Helmets, said Kfar Batna, a town in the southwestern corner of the enclave was particularly heavily bombed since Tuesday.A video by the White Helmets shows rescuers rushing to a neighbourhood in the town, scrambling to find survivors and unable to pick up the dead amid continuing bombing. A couple of women emerge from a cloud of smoke, walking over a pile of debris to get to the rescuers.Meanwhile, Syrian state-run TV broadcast footage of the patients exiting eastern Ghouta. In the footage, about a dozen residents, mostly women and children, many looking haggard and carrying a few belongings, are seen walking out of the enclave through the corridor manned by Syrian soldiers that links between the rebel-held enclave and Damascus. At least two ambulances and a bus brought patients and their families to the area. The broadcaster said 25 people were evacuated.One resident told the state-run TV that he was happy to get out of eastern Ghouta safely. "I hope all people manage to get out. They all wish to get out. But they (rebel fighters) are not letting them out," the unnamed resident said. "It is not up to us. It is up to them."There is an estimated 400,000 residents trapped in eastern Ghouta.Despite a U.N. cease-fire, the government's military offensive continued against the region, only miles from the Syrian capital and in rebel hands since 2012. Russia ordered a daily humanitarian pause late last month, but almost no left during the breaks. Russia and the Syrian government said rebels have prevented the residents from leaving, while rebel fighters say the Russia-ordered humanitarian corridor contravenes U.N. standards for safe and voluntary evacuation.The largest rebel group in eastern Ghouta, the Army of Islam, negotiated the medical evacuation but vowed to continue fighting till the last man.Sarah El Deeb And Philip Issa, The Associated Press.

Britain expels 23 Russian diplomats over nerve attack on ex-spy-[Reuters]-By Estelle Shirbon and Costas Pitas-YAHOONEWS-March 14, 2018

LONDON (Reuters) - Britain is to kick out 23 Russian diplomats, the biggest such expulsion since the Cold War, over a chemical attack on a former Russian double agent in England that Prime Minister Theresa May blamed on Moscow, an assessment backed by the United States.May pointed the finger firmly at Russian President Vladimir Putin on Wednesday as she outlined retaliatory measures in parliament.Russia denies any involvement in the attack on ex-spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia, who have been critical in hospital since they were found unconscious on March 4 on a bench in the city of Salisbury.May announced the potential freezing of Russian state assets that pose a security threat, new laws to counter hostile state activity and a downgrading of Britain's attendance at the soccer World Cup in Russia this summer.She had given Moscow until midnight on Tuesday to explain how the Soviet-made Novichok nerve agent came to be deployed on the streets of Salisbury, saying either the Russian state was responsible or had lost control of a stock of the substance."Their response demonstrated complete disdain for the gravity of these events," May said in her statement to parliament. "They have treated the use of a military-grade nerve agent in Europe with sarcasm, contempt and defiance."The only possible conclusion was that the Russian state was behind the attempted murder of the Skripals and the harm that befell Nick Bailey, a police officer who is in a serious condition after being exposed to the nerve agent, May said."This represents an unlawful use of force by the Russian state against the United Kingdom," she said.The Russian Foreign Ministry said Moscow would swiftly retaliate against the British measures which had been undertaken for "short-sighted political ends"."The British government has made a choice in favor of confrontation with Russia," it said.Russia's Ambassador to the United Nations, Vassily Nebenzia, repeated Moscow's denial that it had anything to do with the poisoning and called for proof of its involvement.MAY DENOUNCES PUTIN-The two governments blamed each other for the crisis."Many of us looked at a post-Soviet Russia with hope. We wanted a better relationship and it is tragic that President Putin has chosen to act in this way," said May.Britain, which has received statements of support from the United States, the European Union and NATO, has said it would seek to coordinate an international response to the attack.The White House issued a statement saying it shared Britain's assessment that Russia was responsible and supported May's decision to expel the diplomats "as a just response." It was the White House's most unequivocal statement to date blaming Russia for the poisoning.At the United Nations, U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley blamed Russia for the attack and urged the Security Council to take "immediate, concrete measures to address this now."In a phone call between May and U.S. President Donald Trump on Tuesday, the two leaders agreed that Russia must provide "unambiguous answers" about how a Russian-developed chemical agent came to be used in the attack.German Chancellor Angela Merkel said she took the British findings seriously and there would be a common European stance, although "we must still talk responsibly" with Russia despite differences of opinion.A French government spokesman said Paris was awaiting proof before deciding if it would act in solidarity with London.Skripal betrayed dozens of Russian agents to Britain before being arrested in Moscow and later jailed in 2006. He was freed under a spy swap deal in 2010 and took refuge in Britain.The attack on him was likened in Britain to the killing of ex-KGB agent Alexander Litvinenko, a critic of Putin, who died in London in 2006 after drinking green tea laced with radioactive polonium 210. Russia refused to extradite the two Russians identified by Britain as the killers.Britain's response to the Litvinenko affair, which included the expulsion of four Russian diplomats, was criticized domestically as too weak, and many in British politics and media have called for a much tougher response to the Skripal attack.Some Russia experts cast doubt over whether May's actions met that test."This is certainly not a strong response from Britain - it is a mild response," said Mathieu Boulegue, a Russia expert at Chatham House think-tank in London. "It will not deter Russia because Britain is showing too little steel."May said the 23 diplomats, identified as undeclared intelligence officers, had one week to leave and Russian intelligence capabilities in Britain would be damaged for years.May also said Britain would revoke an invitation to Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov to visit and suspend planned high level bilateral contacts between London and Moscow. The Foreign Ministry in Moscow said Lavrov had not accepted the invitation to visit Britain anyway.On the soccer World Cup, which Russia is hosting in June and July, May said no ministers or members of the British royal family would attend.'CORRUPT ELITES'-But unlike when the United States and European Union imposed sanctions on Russia in response to its annexation of Crimea, May did not name Russian people or companies that would be specifically targeted by sanctions.She said checks on private flights, customs and freight would be stepped up to better track those traveling to Britain who could represent a security threat.London has been a venue of choice for many rich Russian to buy property and the in-flow of Russian money has led to the capital being nicknamed "Londongrad".Russian gas giant Gazprom will cut hundreds of jobs at its overseas trading and export offices, including Britain where it has its largest such office by far, and move them to St Petersburg, as part of a drive by Putin to repatriate capital to reduce exposure to sanctions, according to two sources familiar with the plan.In a separate development, British media regulator Ofcom said it could strip Russia Today, a Kremlin-funded TV channel, of its UK licence. Russia has said British media would be expelled in retaliation should that happen.(Reporting by Costas Pitas, Estelle Shirbon, Guy Faulconbridge, Michael Holden, Alistair Smout, Elizabeth Piper and William James in London, Christian Lowe in Moscow, writing by Estelle Shirbon; Editing by Grant McCool and Alistair Bell)

2 in South Texas sentenced in grenade launcher smuggling-[The Canadian Press]-YAHOONEWS-March 14, 2018

BROWNSVILLE, Texas — Two people have been sentenced to federal prison for their involvement in a conspiracy to buy and smuggle from Mexico into the U.S. a grenade launcher and three semi-automatic rifles.U.S. District Judge Rolando Olvera in Brownsville gave 38-year-old Dulce Maria Rippstine of San Juan a 37-month term Wednesday and 57-year-old Juan Martin Segura-Olvera of Reynosa, Mexico, 50 months after they pleaded guilty last year to a conspiracy charge.Federal prosecutors say Segura-Olvera, who is not a U.S. citizen, faces deportation following his imprisonment.Evidence showed they were among several people who found the weapons in Mexico and were arrested after negotiating in February 2017 with undercover agents posing as black market arms dealers.Two others convicted in the case were sentenced last year.The Associated Press.

After Tillerson ousted, PM says he is ‘very impressed’ with replacement-Netanyahu confident he and secretary of state-designate Mike Pompeo, a known Iran hawk, will continue to work 'very well together'-By Raphael Ahren-TOI-MAR 14,18

In his first public comment on Mike Pompeo’s appointment as US Secretary of State, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Wednesday that he has been “very impressed” by the former congressman, who is currently heading the CIA.“During my meetings with Pompeo, I was very impressed with his abilities and experience. I believe that in his role as secretary of state we will also work very well together,” the prime minister said in a brief statement.The statement, issued more than 24 hours after US President Donald Trump tapped Pompeo for the job, did not mention his predecessor, Rex Tillerson.PM Netanyahu remarked on @POTUS Trump's announcement on the appointment of Mike Pompeo as US Secretary of State: "During my meetings with Pompeo I was very impressed with his abilities & experience. I believe that in his role as Sec. of State we will also work very well together"— PM of Israel (@IsraeliPM) March 14, 2018-On Tuesday, Trump announced on Twitter that he had fired Tillerson and that Pompeo, currently the head of the CIA, will replace him.Pompeo’s appointment still needs to be approved by the Senate.A few hours after Trump’s tweet, Intelligence Minister Israel Katz, who had met Pompeo several times during his 14-month stint as the head of the CIA, took to Twitter to congratulate Pompeo and “thank him for his support of Israel.”I wish to congratulate Director Pompeo on his appointment as the 70th secretary of state and thank him for his support of Israel and contribution to strengthening the security and intelligence ties between our two countries.-(ISRAEL KATZ) March 13, 2018-Pompeo, a 54-year-old former congressman for Kansas’s 4th District, is considered very supportive of Israel. His hardline positions on Iran are nearly identical to those of Trump and Netanyahu, who argue that the 2015 landmark nuclear agreement between Tehran and six world powers need to be significantly improved or abrogated entirely.Pompeo indicated in late 2014, before the deal was signed, that he believed military strikes on Iranian nuclear facilities would more effectively thwart Tehran’s quest for atomic bombs than diplomacy.“Iran, the world’s largest state sponsor of terror, has become an even more emboldened and disruptive player in the Middle East,” he said at his Senate confirmation hearing in January 2017.During his time at Foggy Bottom, Tillerson did not play a role in the administration’s Middle East policy, while Pompeo is known as a staunch supporter of the Jewish state and may seek to get involved in White House’s effort to broker an Israeli-Palestinian peace deal. Tillerson’s decision to skip Israel during a trip to Egypt, Jordan and Lebanon earlier this year was seen by some as a snub of the Jewish State.In contrast to Tillerson, who had never been to Israel before he accompanied Trump during his May 2017 visit, Pompeo visited as a congressman in 2015, receiving security briefings and visiting the Western Wall.“Netanyahu’s efforts to prevent Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons are incredibly admirable and deeply appreciated,” he said after meeting the prime minister then.He also praised Israelis’ “admirable restraint in the face of unspeakably cruel attacks,” referring to a spate of Palestinian terror attacks, many of them carried out with knives, which were at their peak at the time.The US needs to “stand with our ally Israel and put a stop to terrorism,” he said. “Ongoing attacks by the Palestinians serve only to distance the prospect of peace.”
