Air strikes in Yemen kill 35 al-Qaida militants in two days

20 April 2014 23:24:21 JPost.com - Headlines

ADEN, Yemen - Air strikes in southern Yemen killed about 25 suspected al-Qaida members on Sunday, local tribal sources said, in the second operation of its kind within two days. On Saturday an air strike killed 10 al-Qaida militants and three civilians in central Yemen, a country that neighbors top oil exporter Saudi Arabia and is home to al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), one of the group's most lethal wings. The defence ministry said Sunday's strikes targeted a remote mountainous region of the south. Its website quoted an official source on the High Security Committee as saying that they were based on information that "terrorist elements were planning to target vital civilian and military installations". Similar wording was used to justify Saturday's strike, in which three nearby civilians were also killed. The defense ministry did not specify the nature of the air strikes, but in both cases local sources said unmanned drone aircraft had been seen above the target areas beforehand. The United States acknowledges using drone strikes to target AQAP in Yemen, but it does not comment on the practice. Local tribal sources said about 25 bodies had been transferred from the sites of Sunday's attacks to nearby towns. They said at least three separate strikes had taken place after dawn prayers, all targeting al Qaeda camps. One official said the militants targeted were among the "leading and dangerous" elements of al-Qaida and were of different nationalities. Eyewitnesses said they had seen al-Qaida militants dragging dead bodies and some wounded people out of the area.

Part of Fla. history to step back into spotlight

20 April 2014 23:21:47 WN.com - World News

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Hidden behind live oaks and magnolias near the Florida Governor's Mansion, a historic house that symbolizes much of the state's terrible past and transformation will soon have its doors opened to the public. Crews and contractors are putting the final touches on a substantial renovation of the antebellum mansion known as the Grove just a few blocks north of the state Capitol. Built by one of Florida's early territorial governors using slave labor, the Grove would later serve as home to the governor who shepherded the state through the civil rights era. The state — at a cost of nearly $6 million — is turning the Greek Revival style mansion and its...

Radio calls detail chaos aboard South Korean ferry before sinking

20 April 2014 23:21:47 WN.com - World News

The Associated Press JINDO, South Korea – The South Korean ferry that sank was crippled by confusion and indecision well after it began listing, a radio transcript released Sunday showed, suggesting the chaotic situation may have added to a death toll that could eventually exceed 300. About 30 minutes after the Sewol began tilting, a crew member asked a marine traffic controller whether passengers would be rescued if they abandoned ship off South Korea’s southern coast. The crew member posed the question three times in succession. That followed several statements from the ship that people aboard could not move and another in which someone declared that it was “impossible...

Syria: bombs and ballots

20 April 2014 23:21:46 WN.com - World News

The barrel bomb is a primitive, almost medieval, weapon. Pack any large metal container, an oil drum or even an old water heating tank, with high explosive, shrapnel, stones – the recipe varies – and drop it from a helicopter on to a residential street, where its impact is multiplied by the walls and roofs its blast brings crashing down. It has become the instrument of choice for Syrian forces trying to retake rebel areas, particularly the eastern half of Aleppo. The bombs kill a lot of people, including some rebel fighters but also many civilians, and cause large numbers to flee, into the countryside, across international borders, or into government territory. One estimate suggests that...

GOP campaign committee has $31M to hold House

20 April 2014 23:21:46 WN.com - World News

PHILIP ELLIOTT Associated Press= WASHINGTON (AP) — The House Republican campaign committee raised almost $10 million in March and has $31.2 million banked to defend the party's majority, according to financial reports filed Sunday. The National Republican Congressional Committee's $21.2 million fundraising haul in January, February and March gave the group its best first-quarter showing since 2003. It also puts the committee roughly $8 million ahead of its fundraising at this point in 2012. Still, the GOP committee faces a well-funded challenge from House Democrats, who amassed a $40 million fund. Those fundraising updates — like dozens of others due by midnight Sunday — suggest that...

Ukraine tensions rise after deadly gunfight

20 April 2014 23:19:12 WN.com - Europe News

A truce called by the Ukranian government to mark the Easter holiday has been shredded by a gunfight that left at least three dead and four wounded at a checkpoint occupied by pro-Russia militia outside a breakaway city in eastern Ukraine. The Russian Foreign Ministry quickly seized on the clash as evidence that the new Ukraine government could not keep order and was violating an agreement signed last week in Geneva to de-escalate the conflict. The mayor of Slavyansk, where the clash took place, appeared on a Russian TV news channel after the event to beg President Vladimir Putin to send "peacekeepers" into Ukraine to protect the population. Leaders of the new Ukraine government fear that...
