ISRAELI forces arrested 13 female peace campaigners bringing aid to the besieged Gaza Strip yesterday after hijacking their boat in global waters. The Israeli government said on previous occasions that its land and sea blockade of Gaza was aimed at preventing Palestinian fundamentalist organisation Hamas from getting weapons and supplies.
Kia Ora Gaza, part of the NZ Palestine Solidarity Network, said an Israeli naval ship, operated by female combat troops and cadets, had illegally intercepted the boat in global waters, forcing it off course. "The activists aboard the ship weren't carrying weapons or guns - only hope for the Palestinian people", Abu Shahla said. In 2010 Israeli forces killed 10 people after boarding a boat which was trying to break the blockade, imposed after Hamas took power in Gaza nearly a decade ago.

The offer of amnesty follows two weeks of the heaviest bombardment of the five-and-a-half-year civil war, which has killed hundreds of people trapped inside Aleppo's rebel-held eastern sector and torpedoed a US-backed peace initiative. The deployment has added more punch to the Russian military force in Syria , which already includes long-range S-400 missile defense systems and an array of other surface-to-air missiles at the Hemeimeem air base in Syria's coastal province of Latakia.
Provinces will have two options: Impose a direct tax on carbon that meets or exceeds the national price, or implement a cap-and-trade system, which is what Ontario and Quebec are planning to do. BC's carbon has always been a poster child for environmentalists looking for ways to keep people from using fossil fuels, but energy experts have pointed out that it's not exactly a good model for the rest of Canada since the province gets most of its electricity from hydroelectric dams.
The street had expected FX reserves to stay at $3.18 trillion. Tentative signs of stabilisation in the economy and investment inflows were also believed to be offsetting outflow pressures.

Prime Minister Theresa May will set out her plan to lead the Conservatives towards a "new centre ground" in her high-profile speech at the Conservative conference. "Yet this was not something they said before the vote".

The Thai student activist who was to have met Wong, Netiwit Chotipatpaisal, said in a Facebook post that Wong had "been confined at the immigration in Thailand because there's a request from Chinese government to Thai authority". Mr Wong was one of the leaders of the so-called Umbrella Movement, a pro-democracy collective that took to the streets in 2014 after Beijing said it alone would choose candidates standing for Hong Kong's chief executive in 2017.
But even though the eye was still off-shore, Florida was already seeing strong winds. The center said the storm is expected to gradually weaken during the next 48 hours.

Apart from all the bad blood being spilt, Fawad Khan's name has indefinitely cropped up whether it is condemning the attacks or sneaking out of India amidst all the drama.

Trump, who prefers drawing big crowds to rallies, has done only sporadic town halls and has rarely been challenged by voters face to face, except when his rallies are interrupted by protesters. With the focus now on Sunday's second presidential debate, Trump is signaling an aggressive approach that might involve resurrecting the Bill Clinton impeachment saga in the second term of his presidency.
Clive Lewis, who only became an MP for the first time past year, has risen sharply through the ranks - from shadow defence secretary to shadow business secretary, replacing Jon Trickett.

Reportedly, family matriarch Kris Jenner blames herself for the attack, citing her "greed" as the main cause. Shot in 2003, the tape shows Kim with singer Ray J. Kanye West cut short a concert at Citi Field in Queens, New York on Sunday night when he learned of the incident, telling the crowd, "I'm sorry, family emergency, I have to stop the show".
State Department spokesperson John Kirby, however, did not comment on a bill in the Congress that the U.S. should declare Pakistan a "terrorist state". "If we come to know more from it, we will let you know", he said.

Ryan was one of the last Republican leaders to endorse Trump for president in June. People that have been on your show saying awful things, and now they all want to join. But should Trump lose, should Pence run in 2020? But he said he was effectively able to block Mr Pence from attacking Mrs Clinton. After all, that assumes Trump loses the election on November 8.
A top rebel involved in military operations in Eastern Aleppo was also reported among the slain. Turkey is backing the fighters in an offensive against Daish terrorists further to the northeast, along a separate stretch of border. In his press conference, de Mistura said the presence of 900 Fatah al-Sham Front fighters should not be used as an excuse to besiege and bombard over a quarter of a million people.
The Colombia conflict has killed more than 260 000 people and left 45 000 missing over five decades, drawing in several leftist guerrilla groups, right-wing paramilitaries and drug gangs. President Santos and his diplomatic efforts that he consistently exerted, were crowned by the success-the civil war in Colombia was ended, FARC rebel made a peace accord with the government.
The women didn't have a pricing strategy. Team Nebular made a total of £959 from their efforts selling to the public and trade, while the boys' Team Titan soared ahead with total sales of £1,428.10. "It wasn't a good idea and that was it", Lord Sugar said of the initial format. As always, there was argument in the boardroom about who was responsible for the loss of the task.
Mr Hammond said the result of the June referendum "gave clear voice to a desire by the British people for an end to political union and a restoration of control".

Two days later, he killed the couple. "What occurred at the penalty phase is indefensible", Justice Samuel Alito said in a comment that was widely shared by the six other justices who asked questions Wednesday. "I'm going to kill you". Court records show that Fuller was known to fire weapons on his rural property outside of Lovelady.

He said history would judge Syria and Russian Federation if they used the presence of about 900 former Nusra Front fighters as an "easy alibi" for destroying the rebel-held besieged area, killing thousands of the 275,000 citizens, 100,000 of whom are children.
De Mistura says a maximum of 900 Nusra Front fighters would "need some guarantees" that they would be allowed safe passage to Idlib province. Speaking at a briefing in Moscow on October 6, Konashenkov said Moscow was anxious by The Washington Post report and other similar media reports.
He said three were on board a motorcycle without a license plate when arrested. Mustapha, meanwhile, took a video of the incident using his cellular phone.

Konashenkov said the range of Russia's S-300 and S-400 air defense missile systems deployed to Syria would be a "surprise" to any country operating its aircraft over the country.

A Blue House official said Wednesday on the defection report, "If the content of the report is true, this would mean a close aide in the North Korean government has defected, so we are paying close attention".

"North Korea's behavior is rational for an isolated, illegitimate regime that constantly worries about its security".
