  • Syrian opposition activist and her US citizen daughter murdered in Istanbul news

    A senior member of the Syrian opposition and her daughter have been found stabbed to death in their Istanbul flat in what their family says was an assassination.  Orouba Barakat, 60, was reportedly a former member of the Syrian National Council opposition group while her 23-year-old daughter Halla wrote for Orient News, an anti-Assad website.  No group claimed responsibility for the killings and Turkish police said they had made no arrests. At least four Syrian journalists have been murdered inside Turkey in killings claimed by the Islamic State (Isil). The mother and daughter, US citizen, were found dead in their home in Uskudar, in central Istanbul, late on Thursday night.  Detectives believe they may have been killed two or three days earlier and that their killer covered their bodies in caustic lime to prevent the smell, according to the Hurriyet newspaper. Unconfirmed reports said their throats had been cut.  The elder Ms Barakat was a longtime Syrian dissident and journalist who spoke out vocally against the Assad regime. Her daughter worked for several media outlets, most recently Orient News.    RIP #Syria|n activists Orouba & Halla Barakat, mom & daughter, found murdered at home in Istanbul, after having received death threats.— Syrian American Cncl (@sa_council) September 22, 2017 "The hand of tyranny and injustice assassinated my sister Doctor Orouba and her daughter Halla in their apartment in Istanbul," said Orouba’s sister, Shaza. "Orouba wrote headlines in the first page and she pursued criminals and exposed them. Her name and her daughter's name, Hala, now made front page headlines.” Halla was born in the US The family had reportedly lived in both the UAE and in the UK before settling in Turkey, where nearly three million Syrians have fled since the outbreak of the Syrian war in 2011. Halla was born in the US and was an American citizen. Orouba and Halla were also reportedly related to three young Syrian-Americans who were murdered in North Carolina in 2015, in a case that shook the US and caused international outrage.  Deah Barakat, his wife Yusor and her sister Razan were allegedly shot to death execution by Craig Hicks, a neighbour. Mr Hicks faces a potential death penalty if convicted but his trial has not yet begun.  Orouba and Halla were also friends with Kayla Mueller, the young American aid worker who was kidnapped by Isil and died in their custody in early 2015. “An amazing friend with a pure soul that was taken from us too quickly, too soon,” Halla wrote on Facebook.  Syrian opposition activists and friends of the women took to social media to mourn their deaths. “I’m confused, speechless, afraid, and hopeless,” said Alaa Basatneh, a friend of Halla’s.  “Please keep Syrians inside and outside of Syria in your prayers. Nowhere is safe for a pro-revolution Syrians on this planet.”

  • Red faces as Russian monument to creator of Kalashnikov depicts German rifle news

    The monument in the heart of Moscow was supposed to be a tribute to Mikhail Kalashnikov, the creator of the AK-47 assault rifle. Unfortunately, things went wrong, spectacularly so. The etching on the plinth was not of a Kalashnikov but the StG 44 rifle used by the Nazis during WWII. The mistake was spotted by arms experts, the BBC reported. It left the authorities having to use an angle grinder to remove the offending image.  "A mistake has been made by the sculptor," executive director of the Russian Military Historical Society Vladislav Kononov was quoted as saying by Russian news agencies. A man uses an angle grinder as he removes a sketch allegedly featuring German StG44 rifle Credit: Mladen Antonov/AFP The AK-47 was, in fact, the Soviet answer to the Sturmgewehr 44 (StG44), which the German forces used from 1944. Determined to find an equally effective weapon, the Soviet Union launched a competition, which was won by Mikhail Kalashnikov. Having been wounded at the Battle of Bryansk, Kalashnikov began designing weapons. The AK-47 has been in use since the late 1940s. Kalashnikov, who died in 2013, aged 94 made little money out of his invention. Rather ruefully he said he wished he had designed a lawnmower. Although the AK-47 remains the most popular assault rifle in the world, last year the Kalashnikov company said it was branching out into menswear. "Kalashnikov is a global brand," said Kalashnikov's marketing director, Vladimir Dmitriyev, "and we rightly believe that clothing and souvenir products with our symbol will be in demand among buyers."

  • Russian submarine fires cruise missiles at jihadi targets in Syria news

    A Russian submarine fired cruise missiles at jihadi targets in Syria's Idlib province on Friday, the Russian Defence Ministry said, saying it had targeted Islamist militants who had tried to trap a group of Russian military policemen earlier in the week. The strike, launched from the Mediterranean by Russia's 'Veliky Novgorod' submarine, was part of a counter-offensive against a jihadi attack on government-held parts of northwest Syria near Hama on Tuesday. The Russian Defence Ministry on Wednesday said 29 Russian military policemen had been surrounded by jihadis as a result of that attack and that Russia had been forced to break them out in a special operation backed by air power.

  • Donald Trump called the Facebook Russian ad scandal a hoax so we know it's true news

    Let's call it the "Donald Trump + hoax" test: If the president says it's a hoax, then it probably is actually true. Trump has famously referred to climate change as "a hoax," several times. Lately he's directed his hoax radar toward trying to discredit any story having to do with Russian involvement in the 2016 United States presidential election. He was at it again on Friday. SEE ALSO: Reporters call out Trump’s claim that he saw Harvey ‘horror & devastation’ The president sent two tweets Friday morning about Russian involvement in the election, again calling Russian influence a "hoax."  The Russia hoax continues, now it's ads on Facebook. What about the totally biased and dishonest Media coverage in favor of Crooked Hillary? — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 22, 2017 The greatest influence over our election was the Fake News Media "screaming" for Crooked Hillary Clinton. Next, she was a bad candidate! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 22, 2017 On Thursday, Facebook announced that it would provide congressional investigators with more than 3,000 ads linked to Russia as various groups continue to probe Kremlin influence in the election, and to what extent that influence held sway over Trump's campaign.  These various investigations have yet to conclude, but, as bits of information about potential collusion between Trump's camp and the Kremlin have continued to dribble into the press, Trump has remained steadfast in his claim that the entire "Russia story" is a "hoax" or "fake news." Russia talk is FAKE NEWS put out by the Dems, and played up by the media, in order to mask the big election defeat and the illegal leaks! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 26, 2017 The Russia-Trump collusion story is a total hoax, when will this taxpayer funded charade end? — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 8, 2017 Stock Market hit another all-time high yesterday - despite the Russian hoax story! Also, jobs numbers are starting to look very good! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 15, 2017 Again, it's not clear to what extent Moscow held sway over the 2016 presidential election or Trump's campaign. But, if the "Russia story" is as much a "hoax" as climate change... Ice storm rolls from Texas to Tennessee - I'm in Los Angeles and it's freezing. Global warming is a total, and very expensive, hoax! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 6, 2013 We should be focused on magnificently clean and healthy air and not distracted by the expensive hoax that is global warming! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 6, 2013 Snowing in Texas and Louisiana, record setting freezing temperatures throughout the country and beyond. Global warming is an expensive hoax! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 29, 2014 ...then Trump's probably not gonna like how this ends. WATCH: Stephen Colbert grills 'The Mooch' on why he's still defending Trump

  • Warnings of crocodile 'power vacuum' in Australian river, after giant 17-foot 'saltie' illegally shot dead news

    Australians have been warned to beware of aggressive male saltwater crocodiles fighting it out for dominance, after the death of a giant 17-foot “saltie” created a power vacuum in a river. A manhunt began on Friday for the person who illegally killed the “iconic” reptile, after its carcass was found in the Fitzroy River in central Queensland with a single gunshot wound to the head. The incident sparked an urgent warning from the state government about aggressive behaviour from younger crocodiles in the area, which had been kept in check by the dominant male and were expected to start jostling for dominance. "People need to clearly understand the death of this animal has changed the balance of the crocodile population in the Fitzroy," the environment department's diversity operations director Michael Joyce told Australian media. An investigation has been launched to find the person who killed the 'iconic' crocodile Credit: EPA/ Queensland Police Service "We can expect increased aggressive activity by younger male crocodiles. That's because they will be competing to take the dominant position which is now vacant. Mr Joyce added that he didn't think the crocodile had posed a problem but rather, was "an important part of our ecosystem". "He is a crocodile that does spend a fair bit of time controlling the river and controlling the young animals that are in the river,” he said. The death of the dominant crocodile is expected to create a power vacuum, with younger males likely to aggressively compete with each other  Credit: EPA/ Queensland Police Service In Queensland, the maximum penalty for offenders caught killing a crocodile without authority is A$28,383 (£16,671), with the highest penalty reserved for those who kill “iconic” crocodiles, defined as being greater than 5m (16.4 feet) in length. The offender could also face up to three years in jail if found guilty of animal cruelty. Since they were declared a protected species in the 1970s, saltwater crocodile numbers have exploded in northern Australia, reigniting debate about whether to cull them. Giant Crocodile Scares Fishermen in Western Australia 00:30 An average of two people a year are killed by the animals, which can grow up to 7 metres and weigh more than a tonne. The reptile’s carcass was taken to nearby Koorana Crocodile Farm, where it will be buried after an autopsy. The owner of the farm John Leaver said it was the largest crocodile caught in Queensland in 20 to 30 years. The gunshot had caused a large hole in the top of the crocodile’s skull, indicating a large calibre rifle, he said. Asked why the crocodile was shot, Mr Leaver added: “I would say that someone felt very threatened”.
