At least 800 activists of Pukhtoon Students Federation (PSF), along with local tribesmen, gathered in the city of Dera Ismail Khan in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa Province to condemn the attacks on the northwestern Waziristan region that have claimed hundreds of lives so far, a Press TV correspondent reported on Thursday.

March 25, 2011 by legitgov

NATO to take charge of Libya no-fly zone 25 Mar 2011 The NATO secretary general says the 28-member coalition has agreed to take control of enforcing a no-fly zone over Libya while the US remains in charge of military operations. The decision comes as the director of the US military's Joint Staff, Vice Admiral Bill Gortney, had said earlier on Thursday that Washington was working to hand over leadership of the coalition policing a no-fly zone over Libya to some other entity.

March 25, 2011 by legitgov

NATO to Run No-Fly Zone as U.S.-Led Force Hits Qaddafi Army 25 Mar 2011  NATO agreed to take command of the Libya no-fly zone without assuming responsibility for air strikes against Libyan military targets that sparked discord within the 28-nation alliance. The agreement among members of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization means the U.S. will likely stay in charge of the attacks on Muammar Qaddafi’s ground forces, which continued overnight. Explosions were heard in the capital, Tripoli, before daybreak today, apparently from air strikes, the Associated Press said.

March 25, 2011 by legitgov

Japan to consider further evacuations 24 Mar 2011 Amid an escalating nuclear crisis in Japan, the government may move people residing near the quake-hit Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant farther away from the area. "We are reviewing whether people can continue living under the current conditions," Japanese Chief Cabinet Secretary Yukio Edano said on Thursday. The March 11 massive earthquake and tsunami in Japan's northern coast triggered a nuclear crisis by knocking out power to cooling systems at the Fukushima Daiichi plant and causing radiation leaks.

March 25, 2011 by legitgov

Japan fears reactor core breach --Japan's government says the reactor core at one unit of Fukushima nuclear plant may have fissured. 25 Mar 2011 Japanese officials have expressed alarm over a possible fracture of a reactor core at one unit [Unit 3] of the troubled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant. Japanese nuclear safety officials raised the possibility of more severe environmental contamination on Friday with their latest announcement on the country's nuclear crisis. "It is possible that somewhere at the reactor may have been damaged," AP quoted Hidehiko Nishiyama, a spokesman for the nuclear safety agency, as saying.

US remains military muscle in Libya campaign 25 Mar 2011 The United States stepped aside to allow NATO to run Libya no-fly operations, but the US military's enormous strike power remains the real muscle behind the coalition effort. Having held back before plunging into a mission with ill-defined objectives, Washington took the reins Saturday of a coalition tasked rather ambiguously with using "all necessary measures" to protect Libyan civilians.

Terror police treated us like second class citizens, say Rochdale family 25 Mar 2011 (UK) ...Ahmed's passport and back bag were temporarily confiscated as he was led away from his family to a room where plain clothed officers informed him that he was being stopped under Section 7 of the Terrorism Act. Despite wearing only a T-shirt and shorts and having just disembarked from a plane he was searched for "his own safety". Ahmed says none of the officers identified themselves and that when he asked for their ID "only one of them said he was an Anti-terrorist police officer and showed me a badge but his name was obscured by a sticker."

March 25, 2011 by legitgov

Japan death toll tops 10,000 as plant keeps fuming 25 Mar 2011 The death toll from Japan's worst post-war disaster topped 10,000 Friday as the operator of a radiation-belching nuclear plant warned that work to stabilise it may take another month...

March 25, 2011 by legitgov

Tepco Ordered to Improve Radiation Monitoring at Crippled Plant 24 Mar 2011 Japan ordered Tokyo Electric Power Co. to improve monitoring at the damaged Fukushima Dai-Ichi nuclear plant after two workers were hospitalized yesterday suffering from radiation burns.

Tokyo Electric plans to drain radioactive water from the turbine building of the No. 3 unit where the accident occurred, spokesman Osamu Yokokura said.

Tokyo Electric Power, operator of the damaged facility, said two of the workers had been sent to hospital for decontamination after contact with radioactive water.

U.S. court validates spying fears of journalists, activists

March 25, 2011 by legitgov

U.S. court validates spying fears of journalists, activists 22 Mar 2011 Fearing that a powerful U.S. spy agency is listening in, a group of activists and journalists has persuaded a New York appeals court that it is reasonable to assume their phone and e-mail conversations are being monitored. The ruling finds that new U.S. surveillance laws are so broad as to compel certain professionals to protect their sensitive conversations. Otherwise, their dialogues with sources - such as radicals, dissidents and alleged terrorists overseas - might well be overheard.

'Over 350 planes in US-led Libya war' 24 Mar 2011 More than 350 aircraft are participating in the US-led campaign of military airstrikes against Libya, a US official says. "More than 350 aircraft are involved in some capacity. Only slightly more than half belong to the United States." AFP quoted US Navy Vice Admiral William Gortney as saying on Thursday at a Pentagon briefing. As the Western alliance's military operations entered its six day on Thursday Gortney added, "It's fair to say the coalition is growing in both size and capability every day."

Rights Are Curtailed for Terror Suspects

March 24, 2011 by legitgov

Rights Are Curtailed for Terror Suspects 24 Mar 2011 New rules allow investigators to hold domestic-terror suspects longer than others without giving them a Miranda warning, significantly expanding exceptions to the instructions that have governed the handling of criminal suspects for more than four decades. The move is one of the Obama administration's most significant revisions to rules governing the investigation of terror suspects in the U.S. And it potentially opens a new political tussle over national security policy, as the administration marks another step back from pre-election criticism of unorthodox counterterror methods. [Once again, Obama has out-Bushed Bush.]

Special Forces may have role in Libya --N.C. troops could see action 24 Mar 2011 While U.S. military involvement in Libya has been limited to strikes from the air and sea, analysts say it's possible that U.S. Special Forces soldiers could become involved in the conflict. Retired Gen. Dan McNeill, a former commanding general of the 82nd Airborne Division and 18th Airborne Corps, said he trusts the Obama administration's assertion that there will be no ground invasion. But analysts say the use of Special Forces soldiers is an option.

(TEPCO) said. This is the third time in the past two days that work to restore power and cool down spent nuclear fuel pools at the plant has been interrupted due to steam and smoke rising from the No. 2 and No. 3 reactor buildings.
