  • Crews push to contain California fires, search for bodies

    Golocal247.com news

    By Jim Christie SANTA ROSA, Calif. (Reuters) - Crews fought their way across rugged, steep terrain on Tuesday in a push to gain full control of the deadliest wildfires in California history, as search-and-rescue teams picked through an ashy moonscape of destroyed homes looking for victims. "There are still some concerns that if the west winds come up or we get some erratic winds they could push our lines, but as of right now we're looking pretty good," Steve Crawford, a fire operations chief, told reporters at a briefing in Sonoma County in the heart of California's celebrated wine country. Already 41 people have been confirmed killed in the fires, which erupted last week and were driven by dry, hot winds into Northern California communities, giving residents little or no chance to escape.

  • China's Jiang rises from the 'dead' for Communist meeting

    Golocal247.com news

    Rumoured to have died a few months ago, 91-year-old former Chinese president Jiang Zemin roused social media users Wednesday by taking a prominent place at the ruling Communist Party's leadership Congress. Proving that reports of his demise were greatly exaggerated, the former leader sat next to President Xi Jinping and stood for the national anthem as the twice-a-decade congress opened on national television in Beijing's vast Great Hall of the People. Many Chinese internet users gushed over the elderly "Frog" -- an affectionate nickname inspired by Jiang's wide grin and prominent bespectacled eyes -- marvelling over the apparently still hale nonagenarian in postings sprinkled with frog emojis.

    Golocal247.com news

    Donald Trump’s former communications chief is at the centre of fresh controversy after his new media project tweeted an online poll asking people to select how many Jews were killed in the Holocaust. Since being abruptly forced from the White House after just 11 days by Mr Trump’s Chief of Staff John Kelly, Anthony Scaramucci has been getting ready to launch a new media venture, titled the Scaramucci Post. Mr Scaramucci, who was forced out from his White House job in July, told a New York radio station his news outlet “would be about what is right and wrong in the society right now, as opposed to what is left and right”.

    By Arshad Mohammed and Yara Bayoumy WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The defeat of Islamic State in its de facto capital Raqqa may only be the start of a wider struggle by the United States to contain any insurgency launched by the militant group and to stabilize the region, as Washington grapples with defining a comprehensive strategy in Syria. U.S.-backed militias declared victory over Islamic State in Raqqa on Tuesday, raising flags over the last jihadist footholds after a four-month battle. The Sunni militant group often referred to as ISIS, overran Raqqa in January 2014, seizing control from rebel factions opposed to the rule of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

  • Kenyan election official quits, saying re-run election will not be 'credible' 

    Golocal247.com news

    Kenya’s top election official threw next week’s rerun of the country’s presidential election into doubt on Wednesday, saying that political intimidation and interference meant he could no longer guarantee the credibility of the vote. Hours after one of his colleagues resigned and fled the country saying she feared for her life, Wafula Chebukati, chairman of the electoral commission, also threatened to quit, deepening a political crisis that risks upending one of Africa’s most stable states. Next Thursday’s election marks Kenya’s second attempt in three months to choose a leader after the supreme court overturned President Uhuru Kenyatta’s re-election in August, citing “irregularities and illegalities” in the transmission of results. But the ruling, unprecedented in Africa, has worsened rather than resolved Kenya’s political impasse. Mr Kenyatta’s challenger, Raila Odinga, withdrew from the rerun earlier this month after electoral officials he accused of rigging the first vote refused to resign. Mr Chebukati accused both the government and the opposition of resorting to tactics that, he said, threatened to pitch Kenya into a “worse situation” than the violent aftermath of an election in 2007 that claimed more than 1,300 lives. Kenya's opposition party leader, Raila Odinga, speaking at Chatham House in London on October 13 Credit:  REUTERS But Mr Odinga was swift to claim vindication after the chairman said his efforts to ensure a transparent election had been blocked by four commissioners who have been accused of acting at the behest of the president’s ruling party. “I’ve made several attempts to make critical changes but all my motions have been defeated by a majority of the commissioners,” Mr Chebukati said. “Under such conditions it is difficult to guarantee a free, fair and credible election.” “I would rather go out with my name intact and my head lifted high than be part of a process where personal interests dwarf the interests of the nation.” Mr Chebukati indicated he would carry out his threat to quit unless electoral staff accused of bungling August’s election stepped down, his fellow commissioners stopped serving “partisan interests” and President Kenyatta and Mr Odinga agreed to negotiate. A police officer prepares to fire a tear gas to disperse supporters of Raila Odinga in downtown Nairobi, Kenya, 16 October 2017 Credit:  EPA He also demanded an end to opposition protesters chasing away electoral staff trying to prepare polling stations. Were Mr Chebukati to resign, the election — which is constitutionally required to be held by Nov 1st — risks being postponed as the chairman of the commission alone has the power to declare the result.  Mr Chebukati’s decision to air his grievances publicly came after Roselyn Akombe, one of his six fellow commissioners, resigned and fled to New York, raised similar concerns and said she feared for her safety after receiving threats. A senior electoral manager with responsibility for the electronic integrity of the vote, was murdered nine days before the August election. “The commission in its current state can surely not guarantee a credible election on 26 October 2017,” she said in a statement. “I do not want to be party to such a mockery to electoral integrity.” Kenyan opposition lawmaker Caleb Amisi Luyai leans through of his car as tear gas billows out Credit: REUTERS In recent days, both President Kenyatta and Mr Odinga appeared to have made some concessions that raised hopes for a negotiated settlement to the crisis. But Mr Odinga has shown little sign of returning to the race. On Wednesday he called for mass protests on election day as part of a strategy to prevent voting taking place in his strongholds — a move that could lead to the poll being nullified again. As many as 70 people have died in election-related violence since August, the vast majority opposition protesters killed by the security forces.

    A wanted Michigan man has turned himself in after losing a bet he made with police on Facebook. Michael Zaydel had promised to give himself up to police if a Facebook post about an existing arrest warrant received more than 1,000 shares. The cocky 21-year-old even promised to bring Redford Township Police Department (RTPD) officers a dozen doughnuts if they were victorious in the challenge. “I’m not worried about it,” he wrote. “If your next post gets 1,000 shares I’ll turn myself in with a dozen doughnuts and that’s a promise. “And I’ll pick up every piece of litter around your public schools.” In a follow-up post, the department said he “may or may not be a man of his word,” adding, “it is our experience everyone gets caught at some point. He has drawn a lot of attention to himself, and that makes it hard to hide from reality.” The fugitive eventually surrendered to police, fulfilling his promise by arriving at the station with doughnuts and a bagel. “Zaydel made good on his promise to turn himself in to RTPD for his outstanding warrants,” the department said. “He walked in on his own, and not only did he bring the doughnuts, he brought one bagel! We would again like to express our gratitude for the support of all who followed this, shared it, and left us positive feedback.” Mr Zaydel was sentenced to 39 days in jail after pleading guilty to breaking the terms of his probation. Is this the world's most meta mugshot?
