Mushtaq Khan, a 48-year-old bank manager, used to enjoy his nightly jog in Islamabad's huge Fatima Jinnah Park - until worsening power cuts two years ago began plunging him into darkness mid-stride, forcing him to run in the morning instead. Now, however, new large-scale solar lighting for the Pakistani capital's largest public park has let Khan return to his old schedule - and he no longer worries about running into porcupines or wild boar in the dark. "After learning that a new solar system now provides uninterrupted power to the entire electric system round-the-clock, I have swapped back the jogging schedule from morning to evening," he told the Thomson Reuters Foundation during a brief...

Impeach Trump Bets Rise In U.K. As Kaine, Warren Are Predicted For 2020

In America, lawmakers are beginning to propose an impeachment for President Donald Trump, but novelty or specialty bets in the U.K. for Trump to be removed from office in 2017 have been around for awhile. For example, as previously reported by the Inquisitr, there was a bet in Australia for $200,000 for Hillary Clinton to beat Donald Trump. Soon after, in early December, it was also being bet on in the U.K. that Trump, if elected, would be impeached soon after. Other Donald Trump bets from early December included Canada banning Americans from immigrating and Trump making a song with U.K. Independence Party leader, Nigel Farage, in the next four years.

For Kurds in Syria, world novels finally speak their language

06 February 2017 23:47:06 WN.com - Mideast News

QAMISHLI, Syria — Abdo Shehu sits in an office in Kurdish-majority Qamishli in northeast Syria, surrounded by copies of the first Western novel available in the city in his own language. The novel is “Snow” by French writer Maxence Fermine, the first fruits of a new project to translate international works of literature into a language that was effectively banned in Syria until recently.

MOSCOW — The Kremlin said on Monday it did not agree with US President Donald Trump’s assessment of Iran as “the number one terrorist state” and a Russian diplomat said any US attempt to reopen an Iran nuclear deal would inflame tensions in the Middle East.

WUERZBURG, Germany — A Syrian refugee whose selfie with German Chancellor Angela Merkel has been repeatedly manipulated to link him to violent extremism, took Facebook to court on Monday for spreading defamatory fake news.

He is asking a court in Germany’s southern city of Wuerzburg for an injunction against Facebook Ireland Limited, the group’s European subsidiary, that would force it to take down all posts linking him to terrorism or criminal offences.

Iraqi forces wage psychological war with extremist corpses

06 February 2017 23:47:06 WN.com - Mideast News

MOSUL, Iraq — The flyblown corpses of the Daesh terror group militants have been rotting along a main street in north Mosul for two weeks, a health risk for passersby. Suicide bombers’ belts beside the fighters can still explode, killing anyone nearby. But the Iraqi army has no intention of burying the extremists and hopes as many people as possible will get a good look at their blackened bodies, torn apart by bombs and bullets. As Iraqi forces prepare to expand their offensive against Daesh from east to west Mosul, they want to stamp out any sympathy that residents may have for the group, which won instant support when it seized the vast city in 2014. “We will leave the terrorists there,”...
