Somali crowds kill, mutilate troops

first_imgAt dawn Wednesday, Ethiopian and government soldiers stormed into a neighborhood in southern Mogadishu to disarm gunmen there. Witnesses said they were greeted by dozens of masked insurgents who blasted them with rocket-propelled grenades. The neighborhood is home to several clans that feel alienated by the transitional government, and it was a stronghold of the Islamist movement that took over the city and much of south central Somalia last year, before being defeated by Ethiopian and government soldiers in December. Witnesses to Wednesday’s scene said a frenzied crowd seized the bodies, dragged them through the streets and set them on fire. Some residents said that when gasoline was poured over the bodies and matches struck, a few of the soldiers were still alive. Somalia was not supposed to be like this anymore. Over the past several months, Ethiopia, the United States, the United Nations and the African Union have invested more hope and resources in the country than at any time since the failed peacekeeping mission of the early 1990s. It was only with Ethiopia’s military might that Somalia’s transitional government was able to overthrow the Islamist movement. The United States provided intelligence to the Ethiopians and sent in a small contingent of Special Forces ground troops after American officials labeled the Islamists a terrorist threat. But Mogadishu seems as unsafe as ever. The Islamists had managed during their short reign to stop the clan bloodletting and provide a modicum of security. But the transitional government has had a difficult time replicating this. In the past month, Somali hospital officials say, more than 100 civilians have been killed. KIWAYU, Kenya – The chaos in Somalia took an ugly turn Wednesday when full-scale fighting broke out in Mogadishu and furious crowds mutilated the bodies of government soldiers, chanting, “We will burn you alive!” More than 15 people were killed, including several government soldiers and possibly two Ethiopians. The scene was reminiscent of 1993, when Somalis turned on American peacekeepers and dragged their bodies through the streets. Those images and the loss of 18 American soldiers in a single battle, the infamous “Black Hawk Down” episode, led to a swift American withdrawal. This time, the targets were Ethiopian troops and the soldiers of Somalia’s transitional government, both reviled by many people in Mogadishu, the tumultuous capital. Residents fear that this transitional government is headed in the same direction as the 13 that came before it – into a vortex of clan violence and anarchy that has made Somalia an icon of a failed state. The recent injection of a small force of African Union peacekeepers does not seem to have made a difference. last_img read more

Belichick apology is vague

first_imgFrom news services This videotape needs no interpretation: New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick walked out of his news conference when pressed repeatedly about the sideline spying scandal that landed him on Commissioner Roger Goodell’s crowded docket. Belichick issued a one-paragraph statement apologizing to his team and confirming that he has spoken to Goodell about an “interpretation” of league rules that ban videotaping of the opposing sideline. “Although it remains a league matter, I want to apologize to everyone who has been affected, most of all ownership, staff and players,” Belichick said. “Following the league’s decision, I will have further comment.” The Oakland Raiders once again aren’t saying who their starting quarterback will be. This time the issue is Josh McCown’s health, not an attempt at a competitive advantage. McCown did not participate in team drills in practice Wednesday because of an injured right index finger and a sprained right foot. He hurt his finger on the final play of the opener against Detroit when he hit the helmet of offensive lineman Cornell Green on his follow-through. He threw before and after practice with gloves on both hands and said he felt fine. He also hurt his foot in the first half. “That’s more the concern,” McCown said. “It’s pretty sore. It’s actually very sore. It’s kind of day to day and try to get back into it so I can get better at pushing off on it.” Daunte Culpepper played with the first team in practice and would start against Denver if McCown can’t go. Meanwhile, quarterback JaMarcus Russell finally got the chance to join his teammates after signing a record contract for rookies and ending the longest holdout by the No. 1 overall pick in more than two decades. “I know there’s a business side of it but I didn’t know the business side was going to happen to me that fast,” Russell said. Russell has no hard feelings toward the Raiders because of the contract dispute, saying he left the business issues up to his agents. In the end, Russell was guaranteed a record $29 million in his six-year $61 million deal, according to two people familiar with the talks who spoke on condition of anonymity because the terms were not released. Ravens banged up Baltimore Ravens left tackle Jonathan Ogden will almost certainly miss Sunday’s game against the New York Jets, and the status of injured quarterback Steve McNair remained uncertain as the team began preparing for its home opener. Middle linebacker Ray Lewis declared himself ready to go despite straining his right triceps in the Ravens’ 27-20 loss to Cincinnati Monday night. “My arm feels so much better,” said Lewis, who did not participate in the practice session. “It feels great. The pain is there, of course … but I’m actually fine.” Ogden aggravated his hyperextended left big toe in the first half Monday and did not play in the second half. McNair was pulled in the fourth quarter against the Bengals with a groin injury, and Coach Brian Billick would not guess whether McNair or Kyle Boller would start against the Jets. McNair wasn’t too sure, either. “The soreness is kind of going away. I’m getting treatment three or four times a day,” he said. “Hopefully every day gets better and hopefully I can get out there on Sunday and play. That’s my goal.” Around the league Jets: Quarterback Chad Pennington declared himself ready for practice. Whether that includes playing against Baltimore Sunday remains to be seen, but Pennington is preparing as if he’ll be out on the field despite his injured right ankle. … The team also placed wide receiver Chansi Stuckey on injured reserve, ending the rookie’s season because of a foot injury. The Jets also signed safety Abram Elam. Giants: Quarterback Eli Manning took some snaps, made a few handoffs and tossed lightly to test his bruised right shoulder. Manning did not practice and Coach Tom Coughlin gave no indication whether he would play Sunday against Green Bay. Jaguars: Kicker Josh Scobee will miss at least three weeks with a strained quadriceps muscle. The Jaguars signed 43-year-old John Carney to a one-year contract. Lions: Detroit signed running back Aveion Cason and cut wide receiver Brandon Middleton. Cason provides depth because backup T.J. Duckett (ankle) was injured in the win over Oakland and running back Kevin Jones (foot) is slowly working his way back into playing shape. Rams: As expected, offensive tackle Orlando Pace was placed on injured reserve, ending his season. Pace will need surgery on his labrum and rotator cuff, and should need six months to recover. The Rams signed tackle Brandon Gorin, who made 18 starts for the Patriots between 2002-05, and defensive tackle Louis Leonard. … Team president Jay Zygmunt was hospitalized for tests after complaining of shortness of breath. Bills: Buffalo signed safety Bryan Scott and defensive end Copeland Bryan to help a defense hit by injuries. Cardinals: Arizona signed veteran center Chukky Okobi. Starter Al Johnson injured his knee in Monday night’s loss to San Francisco. The Cardinals also re-signed offensive lineman Brad Badger and released linebacker Brandon Johnson. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! It was not clear whether Belichick was apologizing for his actions or the distraction it has caused his team as it prepares for Sunday night’s game against San Diego. Green Bay quarterback Brett Favre said it was a “serious issue,” one that goes above and beyond the normal scope of gamesmanship in the NFL – or sign-stealing in baseball, for that matter – mostly because of the use of technology. “It seems different,” he said. New York Giants defensive end Michael Strahan seemed to think the controversy could cloud the Patriots’ recent success. “It does make you wonder,” Strahan said in a conference call with Wisconsin media members in advance of Sunday’s Packers-Giants game. “You look at that situation and go, `How much did it help, and if it did help, in what situations and what games did it help?’ Because that team has won some big games. I’m not saying that stealing signals definitely did it, because they have extremely talented players. But obviously it didn’t hurt if they were doing it.” More Raiders QB mystery last_img

CANDIDATES URGE DONEGAL TO SAY NO TO ‘POSTER BOYS’

first_imgDonegal is saying no to the traditional poster campaigns in the run-up to the upcoming local elections.Some candidates fear Donegal could be blighted by election posters…like this crazy situation in DublinToday is the day when dozens of candidates across the county begin to erect posters on lamp posts and telegraph poles.But standing county councillor Michael McBride has revealed he is boycotting the traditional electioneering ploy. And on top of that the town of Glenties is pleading with candidates NOT to erect posters in the town.Almost all candidates are using social media including Facebook and Twitter to boost their campaigns as well as advertising online to get their message across to voters.The local tidy towns committee in Glenties say they have “banned” posters from being put up in the local speed limit area. Councillor Michael McBride said he plans to run a “poster free” election campaign for a number of reasons. “I have taken this decision for several reasons, after consultation with both my Electoral Committee and my constituents. I am firmly of the view that election posters represent both an eyesore and an annoyance to the general public at large; and this is all the more so in Ireland’s most scenic county, Donegal.“I am very mindful of the fact that the election is scheduled for the 23rd of May, in the Summer; and I am very hopeful that we will see a higher than usual influx of tourists from both Ireland and abroad this year, drawn by attractions such as the Wild Atlantic Way and other places of natural beauty in our County.“I believe it is a disservice to tourism to have our County littered with unsightly election posters this summer; and I, for one, am going to do my part to lessen the number of posters displayed. I have taken the views of my constituents and I question how much influence or value election posters have in general.“I am confident that my campaign will be won by listening in person to the real concerns and issues affecting my constituents on the doorsteps rather than by plastering thousands of posters across the County; and by my track record as a member of Donegal County Council.“I am further mindful of environmental concerns; and I do not believe that thousands of posters occupying every available space in the County are an environmentally sound proposition. I believe that poster free campaigns represent the future of Irish elections, both ethically and environmentally,” he said. Glenties Tidy Towns committee say they have “banned” posters from being erected inside the speed limits of the town.Local election candidate Brian Carr has joined the poster-free campaign and is urging other candidates to join him.He has donated the money he would have used on posters to Cancer Care North-West.CANDIDATES URGE DONEGAL TO SAY NO TO ‘POSTER BOYS’ was last modified: April 23rd, 2014 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:Brian CarrCllr Michael McBridedonegalelectionGlentiesonlineposterslast_img read more

Record high in August trolley numbers at Letterkenny Hospital

first_imgLetterkenny University Hospital had the highest figure of patients on trolleys during the month of August this year since records began in 2006.409 patients at the hospital were forced to wait without a bed in August 2019 – the highest number ever recorded in August at the LUH Emergency Department.The figure is up 14% from a total of 359 patients on trollies in August 2018. In 2013 the number stood at just seven patients over the month. The latest analysis from the Irish Nurses and Midwives Organisation found that 9,562 patients, including 48 children, were on trollies awaiting admission across Ireland’s hospitals last month.The daily national trolley figure was higher every day in August than the same day in 2018, with an average daily total 28% higher than last year.INMO general secretary Phil Ni Sheaghdha said: “This is the tragic ongoing reality in Ireland’s health service. To see nearly 10,000 patients on trolleys is bad in itself, but this is a summer month. These figures signal an even more dangerous winter, when extra demands are typically placed on hospitals.“At the core of the problem is staffing, as there are well over 1,300 nursing and midwifery vacancies across the health service. This is no time for recruitment bans. Vacancies need to be filled so that patients get the care they need. The HSE’s recruitment ban has got to go.” Record high in August trolley numbers at Letterkenny Hospital was last modified: September 2nd, 2019 by Rachel McLaughlinShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more
