Rabat – The Supreme Judicial Council’s spokesperson in Iraq, Abdulsatar Bayrakdar, has announced that Iraq’s Central Criminal Court confirmed a confession of ISIS recruitment by an internationally wanted Moroccan national.The Moroccan national, who speaks English, French, and Spanish, confessed that he was in charge of communication to recruit foreign ISIS fighters using Skype and previously occupied different important positions as a manager at Idlib and the White Hill Port borders in Syria. He also worked in the Office of Foreign Affairs processing and purchasing weapons from the Free Army for the ISIS organization.The Moroccan national entered Syria illegally through Turkey and was caught by Iraqi security forces in cooperation with the central criminal court when he moved to Iraq. Some ISIS sleeper cells are still operating brazen attacks in Iraq and police forces are undergoing operations to eliminate resistant pockets. On May 2, ISIS militants claimed responsibility for attacking a village near Baghdad and killing 21 people, and additional armed conflicts caused 68 civilian fatalities in April. Still, the region is noticing substantial stabilization after declaring the defeat of ISIS in December.
Rabat – Yemen’s Houthi rebels requested on Monday, July 8, 2019 the full withdrawal of a military coalition led by Saudi Arabia and the UAE. The request came after the UAE announced plans to reduce its armed forces in the war-ravaged country. “We call on the aggressors to withdraw from Yemen, as the Republic of Yemen rejects aggression, siege, and air embargo,” tweeted Mohammed Ali al-Houthi, the head of the Houthi rebels’ Supreme Revolutionary Committee.“Withdrawing from Yemen is the ideal decision that must be taken at this time,” he added. The current conflict in Yemen erupted in 2014 when the Houthis allied with parties loyal to the former President Ali Abdullah Saleh and seized most of the nation’s territory, including its capital, Sanaa. The Houthi move aimed to mitigate the Saudi-UAE-led coalition’s control over the politically tarnished country. Tensions in the volatile region further escalated in March 2015 when the Saudi-UAE-led coalition launched a vehement air campaign against the Houthi rebels. The coalition aimed at restoring the previously established and internationally acknowledged government of President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi. Since then, tens of thousands of civilians and rebel fighters have been brutally killed. As many as 85,000 children have starved to death due to the declining standard of living and the country’s stagnated socio economic infrastructure.A senior UAE official said on Monday, July 8, 2019 that the country will reduce its military presence in Yemen, moving from a “military-first” to a “peace-first” strategy.According to the unnamed UAE official, the Gulf state has already reduced its military presence in several areas, including the southern port of Aden and the western coast.The UAE official emphasized his country’s support for Saudi Arabia, its crucial ally in the region, saying discussions on troops’ movements had been coordinated for more than a year.“This is not really a last-minute decision,” the senior UAE official was quoted saying by news agencies. “This is part of the process within the coalition that’s been discussed extensively with our partners, the Saudis.”UAE’s troop withdrawal contrary to Saudi Arabia’s interests Although the UAE official confirmed that the country’s decision to reduce its armed forces in Yemen was made in collaboration with Saudi Arabia, analysts say it contrasts with the Saudi strategy.Gamal Gasim; a political science professor at Grand Valley State University in Michigan, told Al Jazeera that the UAE’s redeployment was indeed contrary to Saudi Arabia’s strategy of crushing the Iran-aligned Houthi rebels.“The UAE more likely intends to split Yemen into two countries of South and North where it will have influence and dominance over the southern part,” Gasim said. “Saudi Arabia, on the other hand, is more interested in defeating the Houthis and ending Iranian influence.”Expressing similar views on the matter, Saeed Thabit, a Qatar-based Yemeni political analyst, questioned the veracity of the UAE official’s comments.“The UAE announcement appears to be disingenuous and doesn’t reflect a sincere desire to end the war in Yemen, partly because it was leaked in an anonymous fashion without an official announcement,” Thabit said.“The UAE troops still have a substantial presence in Yemen, and this development was made more to antagonize the Saudis who are facing more military pressure from the Houthis at their borders with Yemen,” he added.UAE’s announcement and the escalating US-Iranian tensionsYemeni journalist and human rights activist Tawakkol Karman told al Jazeera that the UAE was pressured by Iran into pulling out its armed forces from Yemen. Karman supported that the Gulf state’s action was a strategic move to improve its image amid the increasing turbulence in the region and to avoid any Iranian threat.“[Another] reason was a serious warning from Iran to the UAE,” Karman explained. “If they remain in Yemen, then their luxurious, glassy towers will be targeted by any of Iran’s arms in the region.”Saudi Arabia has repeatedly accused Iran of supplying sophisticated weapons to the Houthis, a charge Tehran denies.The UAE announcement came after a standoff between the United States and Iran, which broke out in June 2019, when Iranian forces shot down a US drone following a series of tanker attacks Washington had blamed on Tehran.Diplomats have said the UAE prefers to have military forces and equipment on hand in case tensions between the US and Iran further escalate in the Gulf region.“Many people asked if this is also linked to the current rise of tensions with Iran; I would say fundamentally no,” the UAE official said. “But of course, we cannot be blind to the overall strategic picture.”

Suncor said Monday it was still on track to meet its guidance issued in November of between 680,000 and 720,000 barrels of crude per day, in part because of strong results from its other oilsands and offshore assets. The company’s forecast called for between 150,000 and 165,000 bpd this year from its 54 per cent stake in Syncrude.
Moors Murderers Myra Hindley and Ian BradyCredit:PA Moors Murderer Ian Brady claimed he was a “petty criminal” when he spoke for the first time at length about his crimes.The child killer was appearing in front of a mental health tribunal in 2013 as part of a failed attempt to serve the rest of his whole life term in prison rather than a maximum security hospital.He died on Monday at the Ashworth High Secure Hospital, Merseyside, where he had been held since 1985. He claimed he was a “petty criminal” compared to the supposed “war crimes” of former prime minister Tony Blair in Iraq.”Most people don’t recognise the fact that Britain is a psychopathic country. It’s been invading countries for the last 300 years,” Brady said.He described himself as a “comparatively petty criminal” in comparison to “global serial killers and thieves like Blair or Bush”.Brady, who also described his crimes as “recreational killing”, said:“I’m as pragmatic as a soldier or a politician – you never see any regret from Tony Blair, in fact he is minting a fortune from his war crimes.”I’m simply saying this dichotomy is common through all levels of society. Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily Front Page newsletter and new audio briefings. Brady was given whole life sentences for the murders of John, Lesley Ann and Edward.Hindley was convicted of killing Lesley Ann and Edward and shielding Brady after John’s murder, and jailed for life.Both later confessed to the murders of Pauline – whose body was found in 1987 – and Keith, whose body has not been discovered.Hindley died in hospital, still a prisoner, in November 2002 at the age of 60. Speaking at the tribunal nearly four years ago, Brady compared what he described as “recreational killings” to the acts of soldiers and politicians, saying that he carried out the acts for “existential experience”.Then 75, Brady compared himself to a monkey in a cage being poked with a stick as he said: “You cannot make plans when you have no freedom of control, movement or anything.”As part of a rambling four-hour testimony, the dark-suited Brady compared himself to Jack the Ripper, and reminisced about his time in prison with the likes of the Kray twins and the Great Train Robbers. Pauline Reade, 16, disappeared on her way to a disco on July 12 1963 and John Kilbride, 12, was snatched in November the same year.Keith Bennett was taken on June 16 1964 after he left home to visit his grandmother; Lesley Ann Downey, 10, was lured away from a funfair on Boxing Day 1964; and Edward Evans, 17, was killed in October 1965. “Bankers bankrupting society, the illegal invasion of Iraq and Afghanistan, people killed daily, even soldiers are saying what are we doing here.”I know precisely what to expect in prison. I know what my plans are. They are nothing to do with anyone else.”I have never applied for parole and I never will. Freedom or parole does not enter my sphere of thought.”I know that I am in until death. I have known from day one that I’m finished… I’m finished. I’ve got no ambitions.”Brady and his partner, Myra Hindley, were convicted of luring children and teenagers to their deaths, with their victims sexually tortured before being buried on Saddleworth Moor.
In an interview with Athens-Macedonian News Agency (AMNA) on Tuesday, Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak said the future of technology could be found in countries currently facing an economic crisis, and that the next Facebook or Google equivalents could very well emerge out of Greece.“Intelligent people are everywhere and the tools for software development are also available everywhere,” Wozniak said.“So of course the next company to create something in the communication sector, capable of conquering the world if it’s good, could be founded in countries such as Greece.”Could the concept for the next networking site come out of Greece?The statement has some weight. It was just last month that automaker Tesla announced they would be setting up a small research and development office in the Greek capital to tap into the country’s strong electric motor engineering talent, a number of which are already employed by Tesla abroad.Meanwhile Wozniak expressed that he was no longer afraid of the rapid progress in artificial intelligence, but said that challenges and issues are expected to rise between technology and society in the next decade, but expressed hope that “the world is wide open to correcting them”.

During a very brief opening contribution in the House of Assembly last week, Connolly said it was concerning to her that so many residents still appear to be in financial crisis. “And when I checked the notice board Mr. Speaker, there is a list of 54 people who are about to lose their houses, 54. Mr. Speaker I have it in my hand, I can lay it on the table. But Mr. Speaker I say this to say that I think it is something that our government needs to look into and it is my hope that they speed up the process in getting this economy going so that our people can get jobs and pay their bills and so that they can have a comfortable life.” Reports to Magnetic Media mirror some social media remarks that, financially, it is still tough for many in the Turks and Caicos and that many people are uprooting and moving out of the country with a popular new home destination being, the UK.

Trial opens Monday for a man accused of serving as an accomplice in the December 2009 murder of a Vancouver man.The trial of Derik L. Maples, 24, is expected to last five days in Clark County Superior Court Judge John Wulle’s courtroom. Jury selection begins Monday morning.Maples is charged with first-degree murder and attempted murder. He has been in jail since shortly after the night of Dec. 1, 2009, when he and Justin Tyler met victims Clement Adams and Tyshaun Foreman at the S&S Mart in the Rose Village neighborhood.The killing was a result of a drug deal gone bad, police said. According to court documents:Maples stepped into Adams’ sedan during the transaction as Tyler waited outside. After Adams tried to pay for powder cocaine with counterfeit money, Maples got out of the car, telling Tyler that he had been robbed.Tyler, who was completing the transaction for another drug dealer, panicked and fired his gun from a nearby alley, killing Adams, 45. Foreman wasn’t hit by any of the four or five rounds.The sedan continued about 100 feet south, where it crashed into the front steps of a home at 1909 E. 33rd St.A surveillance video obtained later by Vancouver police showed one man walking out of the view of the S&S Mart’s surveillance camera. He returned on-screen and extended his right arm “back to the area he had just come from.” Immediately after the shooting, two men ran off, according to court documents.The two suspects were apprehended by Vancouver police several days later.Tyler, 23, pleaded guilty April 7 to second-degree murder and second-degree assault. Judge Wulle sentenced him to 32 years in prison.Laura McVicker: 360-735-4516; http://www.twitter.com/col_courts; firstname.lastname@example.org.
Among the survey’s findings is the conclusion that B2B media companies are already diversified; 90 percent of respondents claimed revenune from all five available categories: digital, marketing services, events, paid content/data, and print. Ninety-seven percent claimed revenue from digital resources, though it’s perhaps most surprising that three percent did not. Among events, conferences were the most commonly cited revenue source, with 73 percent of companies surveyed. Trade shows (53 percent) and custom single-sponsor events (50 percent) came in second and third, respectively. Within paid content/data, research and paid information services were each cited as current revenue sources by 50 percent of respondents, followed by content licensing at 47 percent. Websites (90 percent) and e-newsletters (87 percent) were the most commonly named digital revenue sources, followed by lead-gen at 67 percent. In conjunction with Readex Research, Connectiv surveyed 30 CEOs of member B2B media organizations in October 2015, representing about 35 percent of Connectiv’s overall membership, with an average of $43.8 million in annual revenues. The survey was designed to identify the current revenue mix at the respondents’ companies and to learn where they are investing for the future. “Our study gives a clear indication that the shift from print to digital will move into hyper-speed over he next few years,” said Mike Marchesano, managing director of Connectiv, in a statement. “While print’s share of overall revenue will shrink considerably, it is expected to remain a key part of companies’ diverse product offerings.” Print isn’t dying in B2B media; it’s just taking a back seat. That diversification will only continue in the future. When asked to describe both their current revenue mix and their predictions for 2020, print is expected to decline from an average of 28 percent currently to an average of 18 percent over the next five years. All other revenue sources are projected to increase significantly, most notably paid content/data (from 20 percent to 23 percent), digital (from 17 percent to 21 percent), and events (from 22 percent to 24 percent), all three of which are projected to surpass print by 2020. While digital, data, and events will take a dominant role in the revenue mix for B2B media companies over the next five years, print will endure as a significant component in a multi-channel distribution plan, according to a new survey conducted by Connectiv. Finally, the survey asked participants where they’ll be hiring in 2016. Exactly half of all respondents named data analysis as an area in which they will increase headcount this year, more than any other category. Sales (43 percent) was the second most commonly cited category, followed by development/programming, events, and marketing at 40 percent each. Areas projected for the most downsizing are operations and finance, followed by human resources.

Today is Wednesday, better known as New Comic Book Day, the best day of the week. A lot of great comics came out today, but this column is meant to focus on the best of the best, the must have books that should be in everyone’s stack for the week. This week, that comic is X-O Manowar #1, from Valiant Entertainment, writer Matt Kindt, and artist Thomas GiorelloX-O MANOWAR (2017) #1Written by MATT KINDTArt by TOMÁS GIORELLOWAR IS COMING!Born under the oppressive thumb of the Roman Empire, Aric of Dacia learned warfare at an early age. It was amid such violence that an alien race abducted him. Forced into slavery, he survived where others perished. His escape would come from bonding with a weapon of immeasurable power: the X-O Manowar armor. With it, he returned to Earth…only to find himself stranded in the modern day.But that was a lifetime ago.Now, far from home on a strange and primitive new world, Aric has begun a new life. Liberated from his past, he tends to his crops. Free from war. Free from violence. Free from the armor.But the machinery of death marches his way once again. Conscripted into an alien army and thrown into an unforgiving conflict, the fury inside him finds voice as he is forced to embrace the armor once more. With it, he will decimate armies, topple empires and incite interplanetary warfare as he rises from SOLDIER to GENERAL to EMPEROR to VISIGOTH. They wanted a weapon. He will give them war!via Valiant EntertainmentValiant Comics and I have a weird relationship. Relaunching in 2012, Valiant came back into the picture alongside the original Marvel NOW, the end of the first year of DC Comics’ New 52, and massive increase in heavy hitters from Image Comics. As a result, I didn’t pay the publisher its due when they were starting up. And I never really got back around to it until recently. Having recently read the first volume of The Death-Defying Doctor Mirage and some of Jeff Lemire’s Bloodshot work, I recognized the quality of the publisher and what kind of books they were putting out. So when I heard that X-O Manowar was being relaunched, I decided to jump aboard with this first issue, and I’ am so glad that I did.Knowing only the basics of the character, I wasn’t sure what to expect. Writer Matt Kindt is one of my favorites in the industry, and his work always manages to balance the big-scale concepts with very personal themes. X-O is no different, finding the titular character as a drifter on an alien planet. Using this as a way to explore Aric’s ideas about war, this first issue does a great job of showing that not only are we going to get a lot of great action, but also a really thoughtful look on the why and how of it all. Its a really interesting use of the X-O concept, and definitely not sci-fi barbarian book that I thought I would be getting. When a series relaunches this way, it is meant to be a good jumping on point for new readers, and having never read X-O before, I am definitely sold. It is one of those first issues that is so good that it makes me want to go back and read the first series by Robert Venditti, which ended last September with issue #50.via Valiant EntertainmentThomas Giorello’s art really makes this book work so well, bringing just the right balance of familiarity to the alien culture as to make the violence still seem brutal, but also distinguishable enough as alien to emphasize just how cut off from this society that Aric is. The book looks gritty but in a genuine way, giving off this feeling of being in the trenches for combat. Colorist Diego Rodriguez brings a lot to the table too, also hitting that nail on the head as far as making the book feel human but not too human. Lots of warm colors and a de-saturated color palette help to make the war scenes feel as miserable as they are, while also contrasting really well against the more outlandish visuals of the X-O armor, making it feel special when it arrives on the page. A great first issue, especially for a reader new to the Valiant world, X-O Manowar #1 is written by Matt Kindt, with art by Thomas Giorello, colors by Diego Rodriguez, and is available in stores and online today.3/22/17 Releases – In addition to X-O Manowar #1, here is a list of other new titles that came out this week that you should also be reading, if you are not already.Doom Patrol #5 from Gerard Way, Nick Derington, and DC Comics’ Young Animal Imprint.Unworthy Thor #5 (of 5) from writer Jason Aaron, artists Olivier Coipel and Marvel Comics.
