Top UN official details terrible year for children in armed conflict

“The nature of conflict is changing and civilians are increasingly on the frontline. The toll on children is more brutal than ever,” stated Radhika Coomaraswamy, the Special Representative of the Secretary-General for Children and Armed Conflict.“Ferocious conflicts in Gaza, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), Iraq and Afghanistan have led to high casualty rates and the displacement of a large number of people, especially children,” she reported to the UN Human Rights Council, which is holding its 12th session in Geneva.Ms. Coomaraswamy stressed that addressing impunity and holding perpetrators accountable must remain a priority of the international community to halt grave violations against children. On the positive side, she drew attention to progress made in some situations of concern where child soldiers were freed.She also commended the adoption by the Security Council of resolution 1882, which expanded the list of criteria of violations to include those who kill, maim, rape or commit other forms of sexual violence against children in wartime.“Action at the international level must, however, also be underpinned by accountability at the national level,” she urged. “That includes rigorous investigation and prosecution of those responsible for grave violations against children as well as reforms of national legislation for the protection of children in order to ensure compliance with international norms and standards.”Ms. Coomaraswamy called on all parties to conflict to make every effort to better protect children and to make protection of civilians an integral part of military planning.She also stressed the need to address protection concerns for children displaced as a result of conflict, including according them the right to education, the liberty of movement, the right to protection against sexual and gender-based violence and the right to basic services. 15 September 2009It has been a terrible year for children living in situations of armed conflict around the world, the top United Nations official dealing with the issue said today, stressing the need for the international community to address impunity and hold perpetrators accountable. read more

All Blacks respond to Ireland loss by thumping Italy 663

ROME — The All Blacks took out their frustration from losing to Ireland by thumping Italy 66-3 at Stadio Olimpico on Saturday. Yet, it was a far from convincing performance.Despite scoring 10 tries against Italy for the first time, there was a glut of sloppy errors by New Zealand.However, after failing to record a try last weekend in Dublin, coach Steve Hansen would be heartened to see 10 this time thanks to four for wing Jordie Barrett, three for fullback Damian McKenzie and one apiece to TJ Perenara, Ngani Laumape and Beauden Barrett, who converted five. Richie Mo’unga converted the last three.Unbeaten in 14 previous tests against Italy, New Zealand opened the score early as Beauden Barrett offloaded for scrumhalf Perenara to slide over in the corner following some nice handling down the right.Italy responded swiftly with a Tommaso Allan penalty after Scott Barrett was penalized for not rolling away after the tackle. That was to be the last score for Italy, as the All Blacks stretched their lead when McKenzie ran between the posts after being released by Patrick Tuipulotu.There was an odd moment as referee Andrew Brace injured his knee and was replaced in the 24th minute by Pascal Gauzere.The officials, and the All Blacks, rolled on. McKenzie claimed his second try after a lovely left-foot grubber kick from Beauden Barrett.Another sensational play down the right saw hooker Dane Coles and McKenzie feature in an 80-meter move finished by Jordie Barrett.On the stroke of halftime, the Barrett brothers combined for another try as Beauden kicked out to the right for Jordie to score in the corner and 31-3.The second half began with two quickfire converted tries from Laumape and Beauden Barrett.McKenzie got his hat trick in the 53rd, connecting to replacement Mo’unga’s grubber kick off the left post.In the last seven minutes, Jordie Barrett grabbed the last two tries, the first after scooping a kick by Nathan Harris, to complete New Zealand’s biggest margin against Italy since 70-7 at the 2003 Rugby World Cup.___More AP sports: https://apnews.com/apf-sports and https://twitter.com/AP_SportsDaniella Matar, The Associated Press read more

Marine A Sgt Alexander Blackman denied bail over Christmas ahead of murder conviction

first_imgMarine A flag outside the High Court Show more Supporters of the imprisoned Royal Marine at Eastcide City Park in BirminghamCredit:John Robertson for The Telegraph Sgt Blackman during a patrol in Afghanistan in which an insurgent was killedCredit:MoD/PA Supporters of Marine A gathered outside the courtCredit:Geoff Pugh for the Telegraph  Sgt Blackman’s wife Claire at a rally in Parliament Square, London, in support of her husbandCredit:Nick Ansell/PA The court heard that the former marine had been offered a job, and that his wife was “a woman of strong character [who] can be relied on to exert control over him”.Lord Chief Justice Lord Thomas said Mr Goldberg had emphasised  Blackman’s “otherwise exemplary service, the fact that he was given bail prior to trial, the fact he was allowed to handle weapons with live ammunition while on bail, the strength of his case on appeal, the risk he might have to serve longer in prison than the court orders on the appeal and the exceptional sureties that have agreed to stand for him”. Claire Blackman, the wife of Sergeant Alexander Blackman Giving his first interview, he told Channel 4 News: “Very sadly I feel that at a series of levels above Sgt Blackman that sort of leadership was absent.”Blackman, who was described in court as having been a “model prisoner” during his three years behind bars, was granted an expedited appeal hearing, set for late January, to establish whether military prosecutors will accept new evidence about his mental state when he shot a mortally wounded insurgent at point blank range, in 2011.The court heard that Blackman is appealing against his murder conviction on six grounds, arguing that it should be reduced to a verdict of manslaughter by diminished responsibility because of fresh psychiatric evidence. Marine A A Royal Marine who was jailed for murdering a Taliban captive will spend Christmas behind bars after the Lord Chief Justice refused to grant him bail ahead of an appeal against his conviction.There were cries of “disgrace” from the public gallery as the most senior judge in England and Wales ruled that Alexander Blackman could not be reunited with his wife for Christmas, despite prosecutors failing to raise any objections to granting the former sergeant bail.Claire Blackman, who had said that having her husband home for the festive period would be the “best Christmas ever”, said she was “disappointed” by the decision, which was described as “grossly unfair” by one former senior officer. Jonathan Goldberg, QC, acting for Blackman, also revealed that his claim would include allegations that the former marine’s legal team during his trial, in 2013, were incompetent.He was handed a life sentence of ten years, later cut to eight on appeal. Blackman, who watched proceedings via a videolink from HMP Erlestoke, in Wiltshire, applied for bail last week, but the hearing was adjourned until Wednesday, so prosecutors could consider whether they would challenge new psychiatric evidence. Colonel Richard Kemp, a former Commander of British Forces in Afghanistan, said the verdict was “very, very unfair” on the couple. He added: “They have been let down. I think it’s just wrong.”The verdict came as Blackman’s former commanding officer, Colonel Oliver Lee, revealed that he had warned senior officers about the behavior of the former marine’s unit.Colonel Lee, who resigned his post over what he called an “extremely bizarre” decision to prevent him from giving evidence at Blackman’s  court martial, said the unit was operating in “extremely challenging” circumstances which required “very strong leadership” to enable “exceptionally disciplined soldiering”. The judge added: “He also emphasises the appellant has been a model prisoner, that he has a job to go to and that his wife, a woman of strong character, can be relied on to exert control over him. He would bear with fortitude a return to prison.”But Lord Thomas, sitting with Mr Justice Sweeney, ruled that there were not “overwhelming circumstances” for allowing the former marine to return home, after prosecutors said they believed the new evidence did not back up claims that his conviction should be reduced to manslaughter, and that they  wished to cross-examine two eminent psychiatrists involved in the case.He also said that even if Blackman’s conviction was reduced to manslaughter, it was not clear that a fresh sentence would “definitely” equate to a prison stretch shorter than the three years the former marine has already served. In a lengthy ruling, Lord Thomas said: “Despite the powerful new psychiatric and other evidence, the question of whether a verdict of diminished responsibility should be substituted or a re-trial ordered is a matter of dispute on the part of the Crown.“In those circumstances the court cannot say that the merits of the appeal are overwhelming, nor can it say that there is any other basis upon which it could take the exceptional course of allowing bail in circumstances where it is able so substantially to expedite the appeal.“The practice of the court is always to expedite appeals, rather than release on bail. The court, despite the unprecedented nature of this case, bearing in mind the seriousness of the crime of murder of which the appellant has been convicted and the lesser, though extremely serious offence, which he seeks to have substituted can see no basis for departing from what is that practice.” Sgt Alexander Blackman Claire Blackman outside the courtCredit:Geoff Pugh for the Telegraph  Claire Blackman outside the court Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

NHS nurses told to dispose of clinical waste in patients own dustbins

A memo that was sent to district nurses from an NHS trust – which has a waste disposal contract with HES – tells them that “wastes that you have defined as non-infectious can be disposed of in the patient’s home waste bin” if they comply with a list that includes bandages, dressings, plasters, disposable gloves and aprons.It adds: “The waste should be wrapped in a plastic sack and tied. The wrapping should not be yellow or orange clinical waste colours – use [sic] such as thin opaque plastic bags, sandwich bags and bin liners.”Sara Gorton, head of health at the public sector union Unison, said: “Safety guidelines are in place for good reasons – to protect the people being looked after and the staff giving care.“If the advice on disposal is having to be altered because of contracting blunders the public will understandably be horrified.”Concerns about HES’s ability to fulfil its NHS contracts were first raised last year by a rival firm, Stericycle, which had bid against HES.Stericycle, which bid £479,999 for a contract that HES won with a bid of £300,000, claimed during a judicial review of the bidding process that the HES bid was “abnormally low”. District nurses are being told to dispose of bandages and other clinical waste in patients’ own dustbins in the wake of the NHS body parts scandal.A memo sent to carers tells them to use “sandwich bags and bin liners” to wrap up dressings, gloves, aprons and other clinical waste.The nurses are specifically told not to use yellow or orange clinical waste bags, which cannot be taken away with household waste.Bodily fluids, including blood, are to be flushed down a patient’s lavatory “for a temporary period” in what is described as “an alternative disposal process”.The advice was sent out after the Department of Health discovered that hundreds of tons of body parts and other toxic waste are being stockpiled by a contractor hired to dispose of it.Last night it emerged that concerns about Healthcare Environmental Services (HES) were raised almost a year ago, but ministers claim to have been unaware of the problem until August. Northern head office of Healthcare Environment Services Ltd, which has been found to be in breach of its permits at five sites in EnglandCredit: Lucinda Cameron/PA A criminal investigation has been launched into the failure of HES to carry out its legal duty to dispose of the body parts and other hazardous waste.Hospitals are now being told to store clinical waste on site while new waste disposal contractors are hired.

After the game against Dinamo, we will go with our prepared documents to the British Embassy.”“We hope they are able to accelerate the process, but we will know for certain what is happening on Monday. We have been told even the accelerated process takes a minimum of five days, so that would not be enough time for us.”Steven Gerrard, Michael OwenOwen reveals why Liverpool didn’t offer Gerrard a new contract Manuel R. Medina – September 6, 2019 According to Owen, the Reds wanted to sell Gerrard two years before he left the club and that’s why they didn’t offer him a contract renewal.Gerrard, though, doesn’t want any favours from red tape. He is eager for the chance to record another Europa League win and move to the brink of the group stage.“I heard about it just before the game and we will have to wait and see how that pans out,” said the Ibrox boss, speaking after Alfredo Morelos hit a hat-trick in yesterday’s 3-1 win over Kilmarnock in the Betfred Cup.“I hope they get them (visas) and I hope they come. We are in a good place, we are looking forward to the game and the challenge and we want Ibrox to be rocking again for another great European night.”Rangers suffered a blow when Jamie Murphy suffered a potentially serious knee injury at Rugby Park, but Gerrard was otherwise delighted with the display less than 72 hours after a successful trip to Maribor.last_img read more

Although it’s positive to see such widespread understanding of why there’s a clear business case to improve employees financial wellness, the gap between this aspiration and the support organisations currently provide, remains wide.“A joined-up financial wellness strategy will comprise of a comprehensive financial education [programme] combined with access to relevant employee benefits. Each element should promote the others, cohesively making the strategy greater than the sum of the parts. Despite this, our research showed that [surprisingly] few organisations have created an integrated financial wellness strategy.”last_img read more

Syrian opposition in Egypt to search for political solution

first_imgOrganizers said the meeting is aimed at finding a formula for governing Syria based on previous U.N.-sponsored talks, which envisioned a transitional governing body including members of Assad’s government and opposition figures.“The political process has been frozen for a long time and escalating military operations have become the most attractive for international and regional efforts and capabilities, all at the expense of a political settlement,” Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry said at the start of the conference.Previous efforts, including two rounds of U.N.-brokered talks, have led nowhere. Assad has refused international demands to step down. The opposition is meanwhile deeply divided among various Islamic and secular groups, often with competing regional sponsors and agendas.Egypt is deeply suspicious of the Islamist groups that dominate the Syrian opposition, and has said it supports a political settlement that would include keeping part of Assad’s government intact, according to a previous U.N. agreement reached in Geneva in 2012.Cairo has been battling a growing Islamic insurgency and has faced a wave of attacks since the military ousted Islamist President Mohammed Morsi nearly two years ago. But Shoukry said his country it is well-positioned to mediate the Syrian conflict because it has not sought to arm the government or the rebels. Egypt’s main Gulf ally, Saudi Arabia, is a leading sponsor of the rebels, while Russia, with which Cairo has sought closer ties in recent months, is a close ally of Assad’s government.Veteran Syrian exiled opposition figure Haitham Manna, who helped organize the Cairo conference, told the Associated Press that the meeting aims to unite as many groups as possible to discuss a national charter and a political roadmap.“The basis of our work for more than a year is to bring together all the forces who see there is no room for a military solution and that a political solution is necessary,” he said.Egypt hosted an earlier meeting in January, where opposition figures drafted a 10-point document that backs a political solution, rejects any foreign military presence in Syria and limits arms to state institutions.The former head of the Western-backed Syrian National Council was invited to this week’s Cairo meeting, but the council itself was not.The Syrian branch of the Muslim Brotherhood, a key member of the SNC, said it was not invited. Morsi hailed from the Muslim Brotherhood, which is now outlawed in Egypt and officially branded a terrorist group.

It will also be an opportunity, and we will do our best to provide products that satisfy our customers,” explains Koji Iwasaki, CEO of Life. Jasper Chang, president of Amazon Japan, emphasizes how “convenient” the system will be for customers to buy fresh produce online.Both companies view the partnership as advantageous. Through collaboration with Life, Amazon Japan expects to be able to expand its product offerings. Meanwhile, the Japanese supermarket operator hopes to reach a younger customer demographic and people who live in areas without its stores, reports The Japan Times.Currently, Life ranks first in Japan in terms of sales as a single food supermarket. It operates a total of 273 stores, mainly located in metropolitan areas.In recent years, the chain says it has been strengthening its online business.last_img read more
