  • British mercenaries 'involved in botched operation' backing rebel leader in Libya, according to secret UN report

    Golocal247.com news

    Six British citizens including two former Royal Marine commandos have been accused of taking part in a botched mercenary mission to Libya to fight on behalf of renegade general Khalifa Haftar. The five men and one woman are named in a confidential report by the United Nations panel of experts on Libya into a botched mission that ended with the mercenaries making a remarkable sea-borne escape after falling out with their hosts. The men, including former Royal Marines Sean Callaghan Louw and Andrew Scott Ritchie, were among around 20 mercenaries who travelled to Benghazi in eastern Libya in June 2019 in a contract organised by a UAE based company called Opus, according to the report seen by the Daily Telegraph. Amanda Perry, a United Arab Emirate based businesswoman, is identified and is alleged to have been a "facilitator" of the project. She is the managing director of Opus Capital Asset FZE, the company that hired two boats used by the group. She is also company secretary of Lancaster 6, a business owned by Christiaan Durrant, a former Australian fighter pilot and Malta resident who is also named - and accused of being a facilitator in the report.

  • NSA: Russian agents have been hacking major email program

    Golocal247.com news

    The U.S. National Security Agency says the same Russian military hacking group that interfered in the 2016 presidential election and unleashed a devastating malware attack the following year has been exploiting a major email server program since last August or earlier. The timing of the agency’s advisory Thursday was unusual considering that the critical vulnerability in the Exim Mail Transfer Agent — which mostly runs on Unix-type operating systems — was identified 11 months ago, when a patch was issued. Exim is so widely used — though far less known than such commercial alternatives as Microsoft’s proprietary Exchange — that some companies and government agencies that run it may still not have patched the vulnerability, said Jake Williams, president of Rendition Infosec and a former U.S. government hacker.

  • Outrage in Iran over gruesome 'honour killing' of teenage girl

    Golocal247.com news

    Iran’s president has called for so-called honour killings to be outlawed following the gruesome murder of a teenage girl, allegedly by her father, for running away from home with an older man. Romina Ashrafi, 14, was allegedly beheaded by her father as punishment for fleeing her home in Talesh, near Tehran, with a 29-year-old man. The couple were detained and Romina was handed back to her family as her father appeared to have forgiven her, according to the state news agency IRNA. But on May 21, the girl’s father attacked her while she was sleeping and cut off her head with a sickle, according to a local news website called Gilkhabar. The father has since been arrested, as well as the man Romina eloped with according to local media reports. Under Iranian law, young girls can marry from 13 although most women get married in their early 20s according to the Associated Press. If convicted, the girl’s father would face a prison sentence of ten years. Iran’s penal code currently reduces the penalties for fathers, or other family members, who carry out honour killings on their relatives. Romina’s death has shocked Iran and prompted Hassan Rouhani, the president, to order his Cabinet to speed up legislation against so-called honour killings.

  • Spain holds minute's silence at start of 10-day mourning period

    Golocal247.com news

    Spain on Wednesday began a 10-day mourning period with a minute’s silence to remember the dead from the country’s coronavirus crisis. Flags flew at half mast and black crepe bows were attached to the national banner at the beginning of the longest period of mourning since Spain returned to democracy in the 1970s. More than 27,000 people have died from the disease, according to official figures, but the true toll could be far higher. King Felipe, Queen Letizia and their two daughters wore black as they marked the minute’s silence outside their Zarzuela Palace residence. Spain’s Congress, the lower house of parliament, fell silent briefly before the resumption of a raucous session of political infighting and criticism of Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez’s Left-wing government. Addressing the prime minister, opposition Popular Party (PP) leader Pablo Casado said: “Mr Sánchez, you’re wearing a black tie at last. Now if you could manage to count the dead correctly, you would reach a new moral highpoint.” Opposition parties claim Spain’s government is hiding the true extent of the epidemic by only counting cases confirmed by PCR laboratory tests. Spain’s National Epidemiological Centre says that 43,000 people more people have died in Spain in the past two months than would normally be expected at this time of year. Opposition figures also demanded the resignation of the interior minister for allegedly sacking the leader of the Guardia Civil in revenge for a police report critical of the state's decision to allow a march on March 8 to mark International Women's' Day, despite warnings of the spread of Covid-19. The Guardia Civil report, handed to a judge who is investigating the government’s delegate in the capital for abuse of office in permitting the march less than a week before Spain declared a state of emergency, includes serious errors, such as stating that the WHO declared Covid-19 as a pandemic in January, instead of on March 11. As tempers flared, PP spokeswoman Cayetana Álvarez de Toledo claimed that the father of Deputy Prime Minister Pablo Iglesias had been a terrorist, with the Podemos leader responding by saying he would seek to take legal action.
