Iran's supreme leader warns Europe of nuclear 'dream'

Mon, 06/04/2018 - 14:05

Iran's supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei on Monday warned European leaders against their "dream" of Tehran continuing to curb its nuclear programme while finding itself under new economic sanctions. "From some European countries we get the message that they expect the Iranian people to both tolerate the sanctions, deal with the sanctions, and go along with them and give up our nuclear energy activities and continue with the restrictions," he told an audience in a Tehran suburb. Khamenei was speaking nearly a month after President Donald Trump announced the United States was pulling out of the landmark Iran nuclear deal.

Guatemalans recall terror of eruption

Mon, 06/04/2018 - 13:17

Sitting on the floor of the community shelter where he and his family found refuge, Manuel Lopez breathed a sigh of relief Monday after his close call with Guatemala's deadly Fuego volcano. Barefoot, with his wife and two-month-old daughter sleeping on a blanket by his side, the 22-year-old recalled the terror that gripped his family as a tide of boiling mud and ash suddenly swept into their hillside home. The floor of the community hall in Escuintla, some 40 kilometers (25 miles) south of the Guatemalan capital, is temporary home to 272 people, including many children, who managed to outrun a surge of fiery rock and scalding mud when Fuego exploded on Sunday.


Netanyahu warns Merkel of new refugee crisis sparked by Iran

Mon, 06/04/2018 - 13:11

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned German Chancellor Angela Merkel Monday that Iranian meddling in the Middle East could touch off massive new refugee flows to Europe, as they clashed about the future of the nuclear deal with Tehran. At the start of a three-day European tour dominated by strategic differences on Iran, Netanyahu charged that Tehran has been able to bankroll a growing military presence in countries such as Syria and Yemen because sanctions had been lifted in exchange for its halt in nuclear enrichment activities. Iran wants to "basically conduct a religious campaign in largely Sunni Syria but try to convert Sunnis," he said at a joint press conference with Merkel.

Prince Harry announces next Invictus Games

Mon, 06/04/2018 - 12:24

The Invictus Games will be held in the Netherlands in 2020, the Duke of Sussex has announced, as organisers say they feel a moral duty to keep it running.  The Duke of Sussex said the games, for sick and wounded servicemen and women, will be held at The Hague, before continuing every two years for the foreseeable future. The Duke and Duchess are now likely to make a trip to the Netherlands for an official launch this summer, before travelling to Sydney for the next games in October. Invictus, founded by Prince Harry, is particularly close to the couple’s heart, and is where they chose to make their romance public. In Toronto last year, Meghan Markle appeared hand-in-hand with the Prince for the first time to watch the wheelchair tennis, as well as attending the opening and closing ceremonies.

He told the Telegraph that new competitors are still coming forward, some who have endured physical injury or mental health problems for years but only now feel able to join in. “When we started in London, it was a one-off event meeting immediate need,” he said. “What we’ve see is the appetite and the positive effect on people’s lives, and a real demand for the games to continue. UK team trials for the Invictus Games Sydney, held in Bath Credit: AFP “We very much feel that in creating the games we’ve lit a beacon and we have a moral responsibility to keep that beacon lit. To give people the opportunities and something to aim for.” The Duke said: "I am delighted to announce that the Hague is taking up the challenge of hosting the fifth Invictus Games in 2020. "The city will soon become the motivation for hundreds of servicemen and women using the Invictus Games to inspire their recovery from physical and mental injuries. Prince Harry congratulates Mark Ormrod in Toronto Credit: Karwai Tang "The Netherlands has supported the Games from the very beginning, and I know that everyone there will fully get behind and support then soldiers and veterans who have served their countries so bravely." The Hague was selected following a competitive international tender process, with Sir Keith Mills, the Invictus Games Foundation chairman, noting "the bid exemplified the Invictus spirit". He added: "Post-War, the Hague has undergone its own process of rebuilding and rehabilitation, a theme many of those competing can intimately relate to."

Iran could unleash new refugee wave, Netanyahu tells Berlin

Mon, 06/04/2018 - 12:24

Iran's activities across the Middle East threaten to drive another wave of refugees to Europe, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said after talks with German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Monday. Netanyahu, on a tour to persuade European countries to follow the U.S. administration of Donald Trump in tearing up a nuclear non-proliferation deal with Iran, said the country was using proceeds from eased sanctions to finance conflict. Iran wanted to expand and deploy Shi'ite militias it commanded to convert Muslims from the Sunni branch of Islam, he said at a joint news conference with Merkel.


Netanyahu warns Germany: Stop Iran or expect more refugees

Mon, 06/04/2018 - 12:16

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Monday warned Germany that it could see many more Syrian refugees if Berlin fails to adopt a harder stance against Iran and quit the 2015 nuclear deal. Tehran has been able to bankroll a growing military presence in countries like Syria and Yemen because sanctions had been lifted in exchange for its halt in nuclear enrichment activities, Netanyahu argued.
