    Facebook `Delighted’ by War Room Response to Brazil ElectionAs they monitored trends on the company’s sites -- like articles that were going viral and spikes in political-ad spending -- they noticed a suspicious surge in user reports of hate speech. The data scientists in the room told the policy experts that the malicious posts were targeting people in a certain area of Brazil, the poorer Northeast -- the only region carried by the leftist presidential candidate. The policy folks determined that what the posts were saying was against Facebook’s rules on inciting violence.

  • 'At least 50' dead as train ploughs through festival crowd in India      Fri, 19 Oct 2018 12:46:01 -0400

    'At least 50' dead as train ploughs through festival crowd in IndiaAt least 50 people were killed on Friday after a train ploughed into revellers celebrating a Hindu festival in northern India, police said, the latest major accident on the country's crumbling rail network. A crowd had gathered on railway tracks in the city of Amritsar in Punjab state to watch a fireworks show marking the Dussehra festival when the train barrelled down the line at speed. "There are more than 50 dead. The priority now is to take the injured to the hospital," Amritsar city police commissioner SS Srivastava told reporters. More than 60 people who were injured were being given emergency treatment at various hospitals across the city, he added. An AFP photographer at the scene said some victims had lost limbs in the accident while others suffered head wounds. A crowd gathers at the site of the train accident Credit: Prabhjot Gill/AP "There was a lot of noise as firecrackers were being let off and it appears they (victims) were unable to hear the approaching train," a police official told AFP on condition of anonymity. An eyewitness told a local TV channel there was "utter commotion" when the crowds noticed the train "coming very fast" towards them. "Everyone was running helter-skelter and suddenly the train crashed into the crowds of people," he said. Indian relatives and revellers gather around the bodies of the victims of a train accident during the Hindu festival of Dussehra in Amritsar  Credit: NARINDER NANU/AFP Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh ordered an investigation into the deadly accident and announced a monetary compensation of 500,000 rupees ($6800) each to the family of the victims. "We have reports that some 50-60 people have died. We have asked all hospitals to remain open through the night so that the injured can be treated," Singh told reporters. Prime Minister Narendra Modi said he was extremely saddened by the "heart-wrenching tragedy" and asked officials to provide immediate assistance to the injured. Some relatives of the deceased blamed the authorities for allowing a "big function" to be held next to the railway track. An eyewitness said people were taking pictures on their mobile phones and "they were not given any warning that they should not stand on the tracks." India's railway network is the world's fourth largest and remains the main form of travel in the vast country, but it is poorly funded and deadly accidents often occur. The country is home to hundreds of railway crossings that are unmanned and particularly accident prone, with people often ignoring oncoming train warnings.

    U.S. general says he may not have been target of Kandahar attackThe gunman assassinated the police chief of Kandahar province on Thursday along with a top Afghan intelligence agency officer, but the U.S. commander of Afghanistan's NATO-led force, General Scott Miller, who was standing nearby when the attack occurred, was not hurt. General Abdul Razeq, police commander of the southern province and one of Afghanistan's most powerful security officials, was fatally wounded by a bodyguard of the provincial governor as he came from a meeting with officials on Thursday. "It's been a long and painstaking journey in which he finally succeeded and got space among the bodyguards of the governor," one Taliban commander said.

  • Man pleads guilty to kidnapping and raping British backpacker in Australia      Fri, 19 Oct 2018 01:45:00 -0400

    Man pleads guilty to kidnapping and raping British backpacker in AustraliaA 23-year-old man has pleaded guilty to the rape and kidnapping of a British backpacker in Australia after holding her captive during a brutal 900-mile road trip across the outback.  Appearing via video in a court in Cairns in north Queensland, Marcus Allyn Keith Martin pleaded guilty to three counts of rape and one count of deprivation of liberty following his horrific treatment of a 22-year-old British traveller spanning about two months in 2017. The woman was rescued after she appeared shaken and traumatised at a petrol station in south-west Queensland. She failed to pay possibly as part of a deliberate ploy which prompted the cashier to contact the police. Beverley Page, the owner of the petrol station, later said she immediately realised something was wrong. “She came in, she couldn’t pay for her fuel,” Ms Page said. “She was crying and shaking the whole time — she was really upset. There were two marks on her neck along with the black eyes.”  Map of British backpackers journey When police located Martin’s four-wheel-drive near the outback town of Mitchell, a small rural town about 900 miles south of Cairns, they reportedly discovered Martin hiding in an alcove in the back. The pair reportedly met at a dance party outside Cairns before starting a relationship.  The woman, who arrived in Australia on a working visa in April 2015,  told police that Martin had begun abusing her shortly after they met. Detective Inspector Paul Hart said the backpacker showed remarkable courage and had no real opportunity to escape. “What she's experienced is no doubt horrific and terrifying,” he said in 2017.  A four-wheel drive vehicle is parked at the police station in Roma, Australia Credit: AP “She is a tourist, a lot of the areas where she would have been would have been unknown to her, and she wouldn't have known anyone there, so it would have been difficult for her to make an escape.” Following Martin’s guilty plea, prosecutors discontinued ten other charges including eight counts of rape, one of serious cruelty to animals, and torture. Martin earlier pleaded guilty to supplying dangerous drugs, wilful damage, assault occasioning bodily harm and choking or strangulation. He has been remanded in custody and will appear in court next February at a hearing to set his sentencing date.

  • US charges Russian woman Elena Khusyaynova with interfering in US elections      Fri, 19 Oct 2018 17:26:48 -0400

    US charges Russian woman Elena Khusyaynova with interfering in US electionsThe US government on Friday charged a Russian woman with being part of a Kremlin-backed plot to interfere with next month's midterm elections. Elena Alekseevna Khusyaynova, 44, became the first foreigner to be charged in connection with the upcoming elections, rather than the 2016 presidential race. She was accused of having being, since 2014, the chief accountant for "Project Lakhta", a $35 million operation linked to the St Petersburg-based Internet Research Agency, which led Russian social media disruption in 2016. She is accused of conducting "information warfare" against the United States. Khusyaynova continued to file detailed multi-million dollar budgets through 2017, and into 2018, including expenses for placing disruptive adverts on Facebook, promoting social media posts, registering domain names, and paying activists. The operation was said to have been funded by Russian oligarch Yevgeny Viktorovich Prigozhin, who is a friend of Vladimir Putin, and two companies he controls. Yevgeny Prigozhin, right, with Russian President Vladimir Putin at his school meals factory in 2010 outside St Petersburg Credit: Alexei Druzhinin/Sputnik via AP The case was made public shortly after US intelligence agencies, in a rare public statement, warned of concerns about "ongoing campaigns" by Russia, China and Iran, to interfere with the November 6 midterms, and the next presidential election in 2020. Project Lakhta spread misinformation about US political issues including immigration, gun control, the Confederate flag, and protests by NFL players. It also used events including the Las Vegas mass shooting, and the far Right rally in Charlottesville, to spread discord, the US Justice Department said. Using thousands of social media accounts and email addresses and posing as Americans, operatives took different positions on the same issue, in order to inflame tensions. The 38-page US Justice Department complaint included images from Facebook said to have been posted by the Russians, many of them favourable to Mr Trump. One praised the president for "wiping away $22 billion in regulations in his first five months". Inside Russia's 'troll factory': The agency accused of interfering in the US election Another suggested that "every household of illegal immigrants deported saves taxpayers $700,000". Among politicians attacked were Barack Obama and John McCain. Prigozhin and his two companies, Concord Management and Concord Catering, were previously charged in February by Robert Mueller, the special counsel investigating whether Mr Trump's presidential campaign colluded with Russia. The latest charge, against Khusyaynova, was not brought by Mr Muller as he is only looking into the 2016 campaign, not 2018. Prigozhin, who has been sanctioned by the US government, has been nicknamed "Putin's chef" because he has organised banquets for the Russian president. The revelations came as John Bolton, Mr Trump's national security adviser, prepared to make a trip to Moscow next week, during which he is expected to meet Mr Putin.

Kevin Downing, his lawyer, said there were “significant issues with Mr Manafort’s health right now". Manafort was told he will be sentenced on Feb 8 and legal experts suggested he could face at least 10 years in prison.


    US charges Russian woman Elena Khusyaynova with interfering in US electionsThe US government on Friday charged a Russian woman with being part of a Kremlin-backed plot to interfere with next month's midterm elections. Elena Alekseevna Khusyaynova, 44, became the first foreigner to be charged in connection with the upcoming elections, rather than the 2016 presidential race. She was accused of having being, since 2014, the chief accountant for "Project Lakhta", a $35 million operation linked to the St Petersburg-based Internet Research Agency, which led Russian social media disruption in 2016. She is accused of conducting "information warfare" against the United States. Khusyaynova continued to file detailed multi-million dollar budgets through 2017, and into 2018, including expenses for placing disruptive adverts on Facebook, promoting social media posts, registering domain names, and paying activists. The operation was said to have been funded by Russian oligarch Yevgeny Viktorovich Prigozhin, who is a friend of Vladimir Putin, and two companies he controls.

Project Lakhta spread misinformation about US political issues including immigration, gun control, the Confederate flag, and protests by NFL players. It also used events including the Las Vegas mass shooting, and the far Right rally in Charlottesville, to spread discord, the US Justice Department said. Using thousands of social media accounts and email addresses and posing as Americans, operatives took different positions on the same issue, in order to inflame tensions. The 38-page US Justice Department complaint included images from Facebook said to have been posted by the Russians, many of them favourable to Mr Trump. One praised the president for "wiping away $22 billion in regulations in his first five months".

  • Europe, U.S. Escalate Trade War With New Disputes at the WTO      Fri, 19 Oct 2018 07:31:29 -0400

    Europe, U.S. Escalate Trade War With New Disputes at the WTOIn a separate filing, the U.S. asked the WTO to review those nations that retaliated against its duties. The move sets the stage for a showdown at the Geneva-based trade arbiter that some fear could either lead to a U.S. exit or a flood of new protectionist measures invoking what has until now been a rarely used national security loophole in global trade rules. The U.S. has said the tariffs on imported steel and aluminum imposed earlier this year are allowed under the WTO’s national security exemption, which permits governments to take “any action which it considers necessary for the protection of its essential security interests.” This has drawn the ire of those affected, many of which are close American allies, such as the European Union and Canada.

  • Afghanistan elections delayed in Kandahar as nation braces for  polling day violence      Fri, 19 Oct 2018 13:41:03 -0400

    Afghanistan elections delayed in Kandahar as nation braces for  polling day violenceVoting for parliamentary elections in Afghanistan's second city has been postponed after a key security official was assassinated and the country braced for widespread insurgent violence on polling day. Taliban commanders on Friday tried to further disrupt the election by issuing a nationwide demand for people to remain at home rather than head to the polls. The vote is seen as a test of president Ashraf Ghani's grip on the country after a grim year of soaring casualties among his forces and civilians and further encroachment by a buoyant Taliban. Dr Ghani's weary international backers, particularly Donald Trump, are desperate for signs of stability and progress after 17-years of pouring troops and money into the country. Yet preparations were dealt a severe blow on Thursday when Kandahar's powerful police chief, Gen Abdul Raziq, was shot dead in an insider attack claimed by the Taliban. Election workers prepare for the country's third parliamentary poll since the Taliban were ousted Credit: Reuters Gen Raziq had been a bastion against Taliban encroachment in the region with a ruthless campaign against the insurgents which had largely stabilised Kandahar and made him the most powerful government figure in southern Afghanistan. The attack at a meeting with US commander, Gen Scott Miller, killed the local intelligence chief and critically wounded the provincial governor, wiping out the local leadership at a stroke. Kandahar, once considered the stronghold of the Taliban movement, was on edge the day after the attack, as funerals were held and officials decided to postpone voting for a week. The Taliban have vowed to disrupt an election they declare a sham and its military council issued a statement warning voters that “participation in this process is aiding the invaders”. It ordered Afghans to “remain indoors and desist from bringing out any means of transport”. A bloody or badly flawed election is predicted to strengthen the Taliban's hand in fledgling talks to find a political settlement to the conflict. More than nine million Afghans are registered to vote in what is only the third parliamentary poll since the Taliban were ousted after the 9/11 attacks. Around 2,500 candidates are standing for 249 seats in a parliament which has in the past decade gained a reputation for graft and greed. This year's polls have already been delayed since 2015 because of rifts within Dr Ghani's government and rows how to clean up the voting system. The vote sees a new generation of election hopefuls, many younger and better educated than previous candidates, take on an old guard frequently tainted with accusations of corruption or involvement in the bloodshed of the 1990s civil war. But the new generation also contains a raft of candidates whose fathers were formerly some of the country's most prominent Mujahideen warlords of the 1990s, and who have been towering figures of Afghan life for decades. This year's voting lists include children of notorious leaders including Gulbuddin Hekmatyar, the Uzbek strongman Gen Abdul Rashid Dostum, and the Herat powerbroker Ismail Khan. Jamaluddin Hekmatyar, whose father is remembered for indiscriminately bombarding Kabul as he squabbled with his former comrades in the 1990s, is standing as a member of his father's Hezb-e Islami party. The 42-year-old told the Telegraph he had not gained his candidacy through nepotism and wanted to “represent the people and fight for their rights”. “I have learned from my father to fight for our values, each nation has the right to be independent and we must fight for a good future, no matter how long that fight would be but we should resist.” He said it was not for him to answer for the deeds of the Mujahideen commanders. “I think it’s not a good analysis if we say only Mujahideen leaders committed mistakes here, we should note foreigners role in Afghanistan too.” The possible rise of children whose fathers presided over the destruction of the 1990s is eyed warily by many Afghans. “There will be no deference between the Mujahideen leaders and their children,” said one Herat resident who lost two uncles during the barbarity of the 1990s, “they are just a shadow of their dads”. “Mujahideen leaders want to rule their policies through their children. They are all educated in the West by the money that their dads received by selling the blood of innocent Afghans.”
