Terrorist Attack Hits Colombia

first_imgColombia continues in war against terrorism. Terrorism is a form of struggle of the left political groups with communist ideology. The terrorist groups FARC and ELN are allies, some work in the political area, some of them already members of the Congress of the Republic of Colombia, and others continue the armed struggle throughout the national territory. Its objective is the seizure of power by the Colombian State. It is not a secret, the FARC and ELN alliances with international drug trafficking groups for the maintenance of their terrorist projects and political strategies with the help of governments like Venezuela, Nicaragua, Bolivia, Cuba, as well as others.The current reality is that terrorist groups enjoy privileges as a justice biased by themselves, exposing the impunity of crimes against humanity committed by the FARC and ELN against the Human Rights of the Colombian population.COLOMBIA SIN TERRORISMO ORG. Colombia continua en guerra contra el terrorismo. El terrorismo es una forma de lucha de los grupos políticos de izquierda con ideología comunista. Los grupos terroristas FARC y ELN estan aliados, unos trabajan en la parte política, siendo algunos ya miembros del Congreso de la República de Colombia, y los demás continúan la lucha armada en todo el territorio nacional. Su objetivo es la toma del poder del Estado Colombiano. No es un secreto, la alianza FARC y ELN con grupos narcotraficantes a nivel internacional para el mantenimiento de sus proyectos terroristas y estrategias políticas con la ayuda de gobiernos como Venezuela, Nicaragua, Bolivia, Cuba, así como otros.La realidad actual es que los grupos terroristas gozan de privilegios como una justicia parcializada por ellos mismos, dejando al descubierto la impunidad de crímenes de lesa humanidad cometidos por la FARC y ELN contra los Derechos Humanos de la población de Colombia.COLOMBIA SIN TERRORISMO ORG. Terrorism escalated in Colombia, after a car bomb exploded at the General Santander National Police Academy in Bogotá, January 17, 2019. The attack left a death toll of 21, with 68 injured, as well as infrastructure damage in the area. The National Liberation Army (ELN, in Spanish) guerilla group claimed the attack. The group’s peace talk with the Colombian government, hosted by Cuba—base of the insurgent group’s leadership—was on hold. “I urge all governments to understand that last week’s attack has nothing to do with political position discrepancies,” said Colombian President Iván Duque in Davos, Switzerland, January 23, 2019. “Rather, it’s an international crime that killed many unarmed, helpless young people who were preparing to serve as Colombian police officers.” According to Colombian intelligence, Cuba and Venezuela shelter ELN’s members. ELN leaders Rafael Sierra, alias Ramiro Vargas; Eliécer Herlinto Chamorro, alias Antonio García; and Gustavo Aníbal Giraldo, alias Pablito, are believed to be in hiding in Venezuela. Colombian Minister of Foreign Affairs Carlos Holmes Trujillo urged Nicolás Maduro’s government to confirm the presence of these and other ELN members and act accordingly. “If their presence is confirmed, the Colombian government hopes that arrest warrants will be issued and that criminals will be turned over to Colombian authorities, as it should be,” said Trujillo in a press release. The Venezuelan government has yet to provide an answer. Need for international support Duque made the same request to Cuba. “I respectfully call on the Cuban government to issue extradition orders against the leaders of this organization, so that they can be turned over to Colombian authorities and pay for this attack against the General Santander National Police Academy. We urge the Cuban government to help Colombia deliver justice.” Interpol also issued a red notice against two members of the ELN’s peace delegation in Cuba: Israel Ramírez Pineda, alias Pablo Beltrán, current head of the guerrilla delegation and member of the Central Command; and Víctor Orlando Cubides, alias Aureliano Carbonell or Pablo Tejada, who took part in a 1998 massacre, in which ELN detonated pipelines crossing Machuca, a village in Segovia municipality, Antioquía. The attack killed 70 people, including adults and children, as they slept. Support from international organizations The United Nations (UN) expressed its condemnation. “The Secretary-General [Antonio Guterres] strongly condemns the car bombing at a police academy in Bogotá. The perpetrators must be brought to justice,” said spokesperson Stéphane Dujarric. “Terrorism in all its forms and manifestations constitutes one of the most serious threats to international peace and security,” said José Singer Weisinger, president of the UN Security Council. “Any acts of terrorism are criminal and unjustifiable, regardless of their motivation, wherever, whenever, and by whomsoever committed.” Continuation of armed conflict “In Colombia, we were able to put an end to an armed conflict that left thousands dead and millions of victims and displaced people,” said former Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos at the UN General Assembly on September 19, 2017. Terrorist attacks, however, still occur in Colombia. The peace accords of 2017 were an agreement between the government and the leadership of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC, in Spanish), which left its troops behind in the jungle, and lost influence over them. The remnant terrorists who didn’t subscribe to the peace accords regrouped or created new armed groups fueled by money from narcotrafficking. “Colombia had two radical choices to make: We would either adopt a Castro-Chavista approach, hence becoming another Venezuela, or we would become another Switzerland by signing the agreement with FARC,” Néstor Rosania, head of the Center for Security and Peace Studies, an nongovernmental organization based in Bogotá, told Diálogo. “We are neither of these. We are in the transition of violence in Colombia. Now, we’re at a breaking point in which political violence has been left behind, so we can focus fully on countering violence derived from narcotrafficking and illegal mining, which generate considerable money for these groups.” The Colombian conflict near the borders is rampant. There are multiple criminal groups stationed on the borders with Venezuela, Ecuador, and Brazil, whose actions even involve Central America, due to their control over narcotrafficking routes. “The truth is that ELN took over FARC spaces in Colombia, and the spiral of violence won’t stop, because as long as drugs continue to be worth so much money, the conflict will continue and we will only change the names of gangs,” said Rosania. “If the peace talks with ELN continue, dissidents will trigger the conflict, because they don’t intend to let go of narcotrafficking and illegal mining. That’s the real problem with the current violence in Colombia,” he concluded. By Yolima Dussán/Diálogo February 05, 2019last_img read more

Incoming college athletes enter uncharted territory

first_imgPaske said he’s expecting more clarity on June 30, which is when preseason dates will be more concrete. For now, Paske is utilizing this time out of school to improve his game. “Like” Nicole Menner on Facebook and “Follow” her on Twitter. Cappellett will attend Elon University in North Carolina, and after a team conference call today, she learned her move in date has been pushed back. “It’s just giving me more time to get ready, and to the point where I need to be,” said Paske. “I was going to go up in July, right around the fourth and start doing workouts with the team and stuff,” Paske said. For Paske, his next stop is playing football at Colgate University. As of right now, everything is as planned. In a worse-case scenario, they will have to wait to begin their collegiate-athletic careers until 2021. Chenango Forks senior Matt Paske and Vestal senior Emilia Cappellett are set to continue their athletic careers this fall. Similarly, Cappellett has workouts provided by Elon, which include running and lifting. Cappellett added she and her friends are looking forward to working out together in preparation, once Vestal’s turf field reopens. center_img Cappellett and Paske said they have not been informed of any changes that may be implemented to make playing amid the pandemic safer. Both added they would find it difficult to play their respective sports wearing masks, if that is enforced. In meantime, both are keeping a positive mindset. “It’s new to everyone and everyone has to go through this change at some point,” said Cappellett. “Especially going into the next season, not having my first season, kind of the transitional season getting used to everything, would be weird,” said Cappellett. Paske added that wouldn’t be ideal, and he hopes it doesn’t come to that. “It gives me more time to prepare for that level of play and the new speed of the game because it will be a little faster than high school.” “Move in day was supposed to be August 3 and it got pushed to August 18. It pretty much affects our season, because now we don’t have much time, maybe a week before our first game and our game schedule is shortened,” Cappellett says. (WBNG) — A number of high school athletes across the Southern Tier are taking their talents to college this fall, but their transition won’t be how they imagined amid the pandemic. last_img read more

More than 500 civilians die in Afghan violence in first quarter: UN

first_img“The report tracks a disturbing increase in violence during March at a time when it was hoped that the government of Afghanistan and the Taliban would commence peace negotiations, as well as seek ways to defuse the conflict and prioritize efforts to protect all Afghans from the impact of COVID-19,” UNAMA said.Despite that, the number of casualties in the first three months of this year was the lowest since 2012. The period included a reduction in violence leading up to the signing of the pact.Deborah Lyons, the UN secretary-general’s Special Representative for Afghanistan and head of UNAMA, reiterated calls for a ceasefire, which the Taliban have rejected in recent days.”To safeguard the lives of countless civilians in Afghanistan and to give the nation hope of a better future, it is imperative that violence is stopped,” she said. Efforts towards formal peace talks have been fraying as the Taliban attack government forces, despite warnings from the United States that they need to reduce violence, as well as disagreements over the release of prisoners.A political feud within the Afghan government, between the president and his main rival after a disputed election, has also distracted attention from the peace effort.The number of civilian deaths caused by anti-government forces, especially the Taliban, increased by more than 20% compared with the first quarter of 2019, UNAMA said.Targeted killings, summary executions and abductions of civilians were also on the rise, it said.A Taliban spokesman rejected the figures and said they had a commission for preventing civilian casualties which had brought them down to “near zero”.Afghan government forces and other pro-government forces, including foreign troops, were responsible for almost a third of the deaths, UNAMA said.Air strikes and clashes involving indirect fire by those forces were the reason for more child deaths, it said. More than 500 civilians were killed in Afghanistan in the first three months of the year as violence raged even after an agreement between the United States and the Taliban on withdrawing foreign forces, the United Nations said on Monday.In all, fighting in the first three months caused 1,293 civilian casualties, of which 760 were injuries and the rest deaths, including 152 children and 60 women, the UN Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA) said in a quarterly report.The violence increased after a Feb. 29 U.S.-Taliban pact on the withdrawal of U.S.-led foreign forces in exchange for Taliban security guarantees. It includes a commitment by the Taliban and the Afghan government to work towards peace.center_img Topics :last_img read more

Lambert lauds Villa show

first_img He said: “I don’t like singling out individuals. “But in terms of the whole team – I thought the back four were outstanding. “I thought (Aly) Cissokho, playing his first game for us, was outstanding. “I could go through everyone. I thought Gabby’s (Gabriel Agbonlahor’s) pace was a threat for the whole game. “The three lads in the middle of the pitch, their energy was great. “The whole team performance was excellent. Really good things – a lot of pluses.” Having seen his side pull off an impressive 3-1 win at Arsenal at the start of a 2013/14 campaign which ended with seven defeats in nine games and a 15th-placed finish, Lambert sounded a note of caution over Saturday’s result. But he also emphasised that the feeling this time was “different”. Forward Andreas Weimann grabbed the headlines by notching the only goal of the game in the 50th minute with a shot that squeezed in off goalkeeper Asmir Begovic. But Lambert was keen after the final whistle to put emphasis on the collective effort that had seen Villa claim what was their first competitive win on the road since January 1. Put to him that the triumph at the Britannia Stadium made for a decent beginning to the season, Lambert said: “I said the same last year. “Our season went into freefall after we beat Chelsea (their last game before those final nine matches). “The injuries to Christian (Benteke) and Libor (Kozak) never helped us, and we just stayed up in the last few games. “But this year, it is a totally different feeling. I thought we were outstanding today. “I thought we deserved to win the game – after an initial 10-minute period, I thought we were excellent, everybody, the whole team.” Lambert now has Roy Keane alongside him in the dug-out after the former Manchester United midfielder was appointed his assistant manager over the summer. Keane lived up to his fiery reputation by jumping up a few times and making his feelings known. And Lambert, who insisted he was “not bothered” that Villa fans could be heard chanting Keane’s name rather than his own, said: “I’m not going to tell him to sit down – I’ll let someone else do that! “Roy has been brilliant since he has been here, a massive help to myself and the team. “I’m pretty sure anyone who knows him or saw him playing the game of football, knows he wants to win. “His own career was outstanding, close to one of the best players ever in the Premier League. And for me, as an assistant manager and a friend, he has been outstanding.” The goal came about when the ball broke off Stoke defender Erik Pieters to Weimann, who took a poor first touch. But it came back to him via a combination of Pieters’ team-mates Marc Wilson and Stephen Ireland, teeing the Austria international up to fire in off Begovic. Potters boss Mark Hughes admitted his men should have done better. “It is all about making sure if someone makes a mistake or the ball ricochets, then the very next thing is done correctly and we were probably guilty of consecutive errors there,” Hughes said. “Inevitably, goals come at the end of three or four mistakes. “We need to be better than that. It is a wake up call for us.” Stoke secured their best-ever Premier League finish of ninth under Hughes last term, and the Welshman added: “There was a lot of expectation on us today and maybe that has been tempered somewhat, and maybe that is no bad thing, because we know this is a season when we are going to have to work hard.” Potters forward Bojan Krkic was among several players on the field making their competitive debuts for their new clubs after summer transfers. Regarding the 23-year-old Spaniard’s performance, Hughes said: “It was important he got some game time. He showed glimpses in certain situations. “We need to be able to find him in those areas more often. We will have to make sure he plays in the right games against the right opposition and we get the best out of him. Today we weren’t able to.” Manager Paul Lambert felt Aston Villa were “outstanding” throughout the team in their 1-0 Barclays Premier League opening-day victory at Stoke.

ICC World Cup From overcoming cancer to World Cup triumphs in 2007 and 2011 – Top Yuvraj Singh moments

first_img New Delhi: Yuvraj Singh announced his retirement from all forms of cricket and it brought an end to his brilliant 17-year international career. During his career, Yuvraj has been part of so many memorable moments that Indian cricket fans would have lost count. Apart from his exploits on the grand stage, Yuvraj was excellent with the bat, ball and on the field. The left-hander also overcame some tough moments in his life, notably his fight against cancer during the 2011 World Cup. However, he bounced back and he has sealed his legacy as India’s ultimate match-winner. Here are some of the most memorable moments from Yuvraj during his playing career.2000 – A champion display in the Champions TrophyAt the start of the new millennium, India needed a spark of aggression and brilliance on the global stage. In stepped Yuvraj and he showed his flamboyance and brilliance. His 84 against Australia and 41 against South Africa was simply brilliant for his audacious strokeplay. The straight drive, the pull shot and the flick that came out of his willow was a sight for sore eyes. Although India lost in the final to New Zealand, India had found a new star.2002 – Those two catches against South Africa and Natwest gloryThe Champions Trophy continued reward Yuvraj. A fine batting display in the semi-final against South Africa in Colombo was followed up with a brilliant fielding exhibition. He first set back Graeme Smith with a brilliant, leaping effort at point off Zaheer Khan. With South Africa boosted by Herschelle Gibbs century and Jacques Kallis’ fifty, India needed a miracle. Gibbs retired hurt and India built the pressure. Yuvraj played a massive part in it. Mark Boucher swept Harbhajan Singh but got a top edge to short fine leg, Yuvraj made a brilliant dive to his right and took the catch. Momentum swung India’s way and they reached the final in dramatic circumstances. In the same year, there was more glory for India, this time in England. In the final of the Natwest Trophy, chasing 326, India were reeling at 146/5 but Yuvraj shared a brilliant 121-run stand with Mohammad Kaif. Yuvraj’s 69 and Kaif’s 87 helped India break their finals jinx as they achieved the highest run-chase in ODI at that time. The belief to do well on the world stage was given by Yuvraj and his brilliance.2008 to 2011: All-rounder par excellenceIn 2008, India totally dominated England at home in ODIs and it was thanks to Yuvraj. He took 10 wickets and scored two centuries in the first two games. From 2008 till 2011, Yuvraj was the premier all-rounder in the world. Yuvraj took 55 wickets and scored over 2400 runs at an average of close to 40. It was his brilliant display that gave India plenty of success at home and in overseas condition, leading to glory in the World Cup.Glory in 2007 and 2011The Indian cricket team was going through tough times. They had crashed out of the 2007 World Cup and heading into the new World T20 in South Africa, there was not much hope. However, Yuvraj had other ideas. The world took notice of Yuvraj’s brilliant hitting when he became the third player to hit six sixes in an over. That carnage in Durban off Stuart Broad, followed by the exploits against Australia in the semi-final, helped India achieve their first major ICC trophy after 24 years.In 2011, Yuvraj fought his inner demons in cancer but continued his brilliant all-round display as India eyed World Cup glory at home. He was the Man of the Series and was at the other end when MS Dhoni hit the winning runs in the final against Sri Lanka as India secured the 2011 World Cup title and became the first team to win at home.Those Six Sixes and overcoming cancerFirst six over midwicket, second over deep square leg, third six to deep point, fourth six to wide long off, fifth six to deep midwicket and the sixth to wide long on. The carnage that he inflicted on Stuart Broad was the stuff of legends. This was the highest point in Yuvraj’s career as he smashed the fastest fifty in Twenty20 cricket off just 12 balls. The record still stays.Four years later, after World Cup 2011 glory and scaling the Everest in his career, Yuvraj’s life came crashing down to earth when he was diagnosed with cancer. However, the left-hander fought back brilliantly and emerged stronger as he made a comeback to the Indian team. highlights Yuvraj Singh helped India win the 2007 and 2011 World T20Yuvraj made his debut in the ICC Champions Trophy 2000.Yuvraj Singh played 304 ODIs for India.

Freshman Palaie Gaoteote embraces defensive leadership

first_imgFreshman linebacker Palaie Gaoteote lead the team with nine tackles against Colorado and had 11 tackles in Utah. (Josh Dunst | Daily Trojan)Freshman linebacker Palaie Gaoteote lowered his helmet and exploded into Colorado receiver Laviska Shenault, making the tackle that would leave him on the ground for a few minutes after the play. Gaoteote knocked himself out.When asked if he knew immediately after the play that he had a concussion, he grinned.“Nah,” Gaoteote said. “Shoot, it’s just football. Just playing, big hits come and go. It was kind of funny — that’s why I walked off smiling.”Gaoteote’s speed is striking for a player his size. At 6-foot-2 and 250 pounds, you might expect him to lumber around the field and struggle to keep up with quicker playmakers. But this is not so with the youngster that teammates and coaches alike affectionately know as “EA.” Gaoteote often appears to be shot out of a cannon when plugging a running lane or tracking a receiver with his ability to accelerate at a moment’s notice.USC football has had a chaotic season, but the rise of Gaoteote has been one of the bright spots. Even while Gaoteote sat out much of fall camp and the first two games of the season with a slight meniscus tear, USC coaches could hardly contain their excitement about the former five-star recruit out of Bishop Gorman High School in Las Vegas.In two games since taking over at middle linebacker for injured senior Cameron Smith, Gaoteote hasn’t let his coaches down. In USC’s 31-20 victory over Colorado on Oct. 13, the true freshman hailing from Hawaii led the team with nine total tackles, despite playing just over a half of the contest. Even in the Trojans’ disappointing 41-28 loss to Utah on Saturday, Gaoteote showcased his talent with 11 tackles and his first collegiate sack. But athleticism isn’t the only marker of Gaoteote’s youth. The true freshman seems impervious to negativity. When asked how he felt the Wednesday after his head injury, Gaoteote smiled before saying he felt well and was improving every day. Even after USC’s lackluster defensive effort against the Utes, Gaoteote refused to say anything negative. “We played good, really well,” Gaoteote said. “We flew to everything, just did the best we could do and continued to do it.”It was clear Gaoteote was unfazed by the blowout when he said he knew the Trojans would win this week’s home game against Arizona State. Some may call this proclamation after a significant loss naive or arrogant, but Gaoteote’s earnest confidence is something the Trojans could use a lot more of right now.He has been one of the Trojans’ most productive players during his limited time on the field, even while taking over as the defensive signal-caller in Smith’s absence. This is quite an impressive load for a true freshman to carry, especially considering all the time Gaoteote missed to start the season, and shows that Gaoteote already reads the game at a veteran level.“I’ve said this before, that linebacker position is like being a quarterback of the defense in terms of having to make calls and make adjustments,” head coach Clay Helton said to the Los Angeles Times last week. “You’re literally a quarterback back there trying to make those calls, plus doing your own job. I’m so impressed with what he [has done], and I think the future is extremely bright.”Gaoteote’s positive attitude also manifests itself in his response to success, and he credits his teammates for helping him into a position to produce.“I was really comfortable,” Gaoteote said the Wednesday after the Colorado game. “It just came from the other guys like [redshirt junior linebacker] John [Houston], and the defensive linemen, playing off of them. My teammates as a whole made it easy for me to be out there, and just have fun with it.”It’s still early to tell, but Gaoteote has the chance to live up to the hype and become the next great USC linebacker. At the very least, it certainly seems clear that he was destined to be a Trojan; Gaoteote said he models his game after USC great Troy Polamalu and his idol Junior Seau.There was speculation before the season that Gaoteote could earn the right to wear the No. 55 jersey that USC legends such as Seau and Willie McGinest made iconic during their time at the school. He ended up with No. 1, but a continuation of his strong start could change that. Don’t be surprised if Gaoteote eventually earns that honor only bestowed upon the best this blue-blood program has to offer.last_img read more
