Yash Pal, Saxena’s father said, “It is my wish that the road.. or the square where my son lost his life be named after him in his memory, if it is possible.” Sisodia immediately directed local MLA Girish Soni to send a representation to his office to this effect, and said, “Within the next 10 days, the government will call a meeting of the relevant road naming authority and carry out your wish.” Yash Pal was hailed last year for his role in maintaining calm in the area with the Delhi Police, preventing attempts to create a communal divide in the name of the killing.last_img read more

Khloe Kardashian Slams Moroccan French Montanas Haters

Rabat – American celebrity Khloe Kardashian has posted an angry message on Instagram directed at “haters” objecting to her romance with Moroccan-born hip-hop star French Montana.French Montana and Khloe Kardashian’s romance has been getting more and more controversial since Montana has been the subject of ongoing rumors and harsh remarks. In an attack on the couple, some said the rapper is only dating Khloe for the fame. But it seems that nobody can stop their ongoing romance.Recently, it was rumored that Khloe’s family is very skeptical of the Moroccan-born rapper. Some US magazines claimed that her family made bad remarks about French, and said “being with Khloe means everyone knows who French is now….so he’s getting a lot out of it.” Responding to this rumor Khloe Kardashian posted an Instagram image with a message reading: “You’re still going to be criticized, so you might as well do whatever the f–k you want.”Following Khloe’s post, Hollywood Life magazine reported that Khloe Kardashian has made it clear that “she is no longer concerned with what people think of her, and she’s taking to — where else? — Instagram to prove it! Khloe is happily dating French Montana, and she’s sick of hearing friends, family, and fans tell her how worried they are about her new relationship.”Earlier this month, Montana slammed detractors on Twitter: “There will always be haters. The more you grow the more they hate; the more they hate the more you grow.”French Montana, originally named Karim Kharbouch, was born in Morocco on November 9, 1984. He is a rapper and CEO of Cocaine City Records. He grew up in Morocco, where he enjoyed football and rapping. At the age of 13 he immigrated with his family to the United States and settled in the Bronx, in New York. He married Deen Kharbouch in 2007, but the two have since split. There have been rumors he is dating Miami rapper Trina.Khloe and the rapper began dating in December 2013. The couple were spotted together everywhere, from Miami to South Africa, until they made their romance public in Toronto, where the couple co-hosted the official after-party for the Muchmusic Video Awards.Edited by Timothy Filla read more

New guide published by UN agency aims to teach children good eating

9 October 2007The United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) has issued a wide-ranging new guide on teaching good eating habits to primary school children in an effort to reduce malnutrition and diet-related diseases. The United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) has issued a wide-ranging new guide on teaching good eating habits to primary school children in an effort to reduce malnutrition and diet-related diseases. The agency notes that one of the most effective strategies for overcoming malnutrition and chronic diet-related diseases, such as excess weight and obesity, diabetes, hypertension and cardiovascular diseases, is educating school children in healthy nutrition. Good nutrition education helps children become aware of how to eat a well-balanced diet, how to prepare and handle food safely, and how to avoid food-related risks. “What many people don’t realize is that it is not only the amount of food, but the quality of a diet that has a critical effect on children’s growth, health and learning capacity,” said Ezzeddine Boutrif, Director of FAO’s Nutrition and Consumer Protection Division. “Eating is not just a biological process, it depends on learned habits and perceptions, on the cultural and social environment. This is why nutrition education is so important,” he noted. Mr. Boutrif added that governments should make nutrition education a priority since teaching nutrition in schools can help reduce the costly impact of nutrition-related diseases in the future. Chronic diet-related diseases are on the rise around the world due to new lifestyles and eating habits. Globally, 1.6 billion adults are overweight, and at least 400 million are obese, according to the UN World Health Organization (WHO). Peter Glasauer, FAO nutrition education expert, pointed out that globalization and economic development have introduced new foods and altered dietary habits and lifestyle patterns in many countries, particularly in developing States. “Migration from rural communities to urban areas, for example, is on the rise with less and less people producing their own food and the majority depending entirely on commercial food supply. Nutrition education in primary schools is an effective way of promoting good nutrition,” he stated. read more

UN agencies help Tanzania to set up HIVAIDS national body

UNDP said it was working with the Prime Minister’s Office to establish the “Tanzania Commission for HIV/AIDS.” Since government funds are not available for the 2000-2001 fiscal year, UNDP and the Royal Danish Embassy, on behalf of the other partners, have contributed $375,000 to help establish the Commission, the agency said in a statement issued yesterday in New York. Partners supporting the new Commission include the foreign aid agencies of Denmark, Ireland, the United Kingdom and the United States, as well as the Joint Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS), UNDP and the World Bank. “Government recognition of the need for a more aggressive multisectoral response is very welcome,” said Sally Fegan-Wyles, UNDP’s top official in Tanzania. “We can already see an increased awareness of the need for action by all segments of society.” While action against HIV/AIDS is under way in communities around the country, the Ministry of Health was until recently the main government agency involved in anti-AIDS work. The authorities are now committed to mobilizing all sectors of society – public and private – for prevention and care activities, which the new Commission will help promote and coordinate. read more

UN sends teams to assess needs after Cyclone Percy hammers South Pacific

Tokelau comprises three sparsely populated atolls half-way between Hawaii and New Zealand. The cyclone caused widespread damage to all three: Atafu, with a population of more than 500; Nukunonu, with a population of nearly 450; and Fakaofo, with a population of 500.In the Cook Islands, which already had experienced Tropical Cyclones Meena, Nancy and Olaf, OCHA said, only 10 houses remained intact on Pukapuka, with 600 residents. All the houses belonging to the 70 people on Nassau Island were severely damaged or destroyed.Percy was now heading towards Palmerston Atoll and its 50 inhabitants, according to the Australian-Pacific Centre for Emergency and Disaster Information (APCEDI), OCHA said. read more

Buenaventura to reduce arsenic content of copper concentrate

first_imgRoque Benavides, President of Cía. de Minas Buenaventura, presented a keynote address at the PDAC’s opening session last week, entitled What Drives Success in Our Industry? Benavides outlined several initiatives that have helped the 64-year-old Peruvian precious metals producer adapt to change and succeed. One of the main things for Buenaventura is staying a step ahead of its peers by harnessing new technologies to increase resources, cut costs and solve difficult environmental problems in Peru.The most recent is a technique developed in-house that reduces the amount of arsenic in copper concentrates, a problem that plagues copper operations in Peru and worldwide. “We already have some patents and expect to commercialize this technology soon,” Benavides told the audience.Buenaventura had a similar metallurgical breakthrough at the Uchucchacua silver-lead-zinc mine in the mountains northeast of Lima. By developing a technology to leach manganese from high-grade silver ore, the company was able to improve the marketability of its silver concentrates and increase reserves at the mine.The company also plans to experiment with Technosol, a manmade topsoil used in Spain and Canada for mine reclamation, when it closes the La Zanja gold mine in northern Peru. Benavides feels passionately that Peru must retain more water in the highlands to generate hydroelectricity for mining, which is often accused of monopolizing the water supply at the expense of agriculture. “It’s absurd,” he said. “We have far more water than we use. We are destroying value by allowing it to flow into the sea instead of using it to generate more energy.”In the past decade, Buenaventura has opened three gold mines and two base metal mines in Peru, built a hydroelectric plant, and partnered in the expansion of the Cerro Verde copper mine. It is also shareholder of Minera Yanacocha, with Newmont, Latin America’s largest gold mine.last_img read more

2017 Predictions that will come true

first_imgAs 2016 salutes us, let’s roll on our inner Nostradamus for 2017. Remember, you read it here first.To say that 2016 has been a tough year would be an understatement. We lost so many legends, Donald Trump got elected US President, the EU is rapidly falling apart, and Kanye West had a mental breakdown. But 2017 is going to be even whackier. Here’s a month-by-month breakdown of what’s in store:January Donald Trump takes his presidential oath of office. He immediately fires all members of his cabinet via expletive-filled tweet and hands the Vice Presidency to his number one fan, Paris Hilton. Her first delicate assignment is secret talks with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un. Trump’s final piece of advice is to “grab him by the p***y”. Paris’ reply is “don’t worry Mr President, that’s my field of expertise”.February After months of boiling tension in Greek-Turkish relations, Defense Minister Panos Kammenos decides that enough is enough. During a surprise visit to Turkey he stands on the Bosphorus Bridge with a baseball bat, wearing only his tighty whities and an ‘Erdo-GONE’ t-shirt. Prime Minister Tsipras denies any knowledge and begs President Obama to sort out this mess. His assistant tells him that he’s out in the gym playing hoops with Luc Longley. He’ll hold.March Hollywood puts a halt on all movie productions, with the exception of 80s movie sequels with all-female casts. The Goonies, Platoon, The Breakfast Club, This Is Spinal Tap, even Crocodile Dundee get their due reboot, all of them starring the Kardashian sisters, as every other actress is ruled out due to low numbers of Instagram followers.April Influential fashion bloggers, food critics, and highly-rated Uber drivers from around the globe form the WEIA (We Are Important Association). They seek to negotiate a collective bargaining agreement with their respective states that includes retirement packages and free Snapchat shares, but talks break down when they demand a lifetime supply of quinoa for all members.May Disappointed by the ineptitude of his cabinet, Prime Minister Tsipras seeks the help of well-known Greek Australians. He offers the Ministry of Culture to Nick Giannopoulos, courts Nick Kyrgios to become Ambassador of Sportsmanship, and gives carte blanche to Con Makris to become a developer in Athens with an offer he can’t refuse: high taxes, bureaucracy at its finest, and his own Ministers trying to sabotage any investment.June A survey in Oh Boy magazine suggests that 87 per cent of women over the age of 30 view ‘an organic food-eating, bearded, cat-loving headcase with a history of domestic violence, preferably a member of a rock band that’s going nowhere, with a love of tattoos, brunch, malt whiskey, thrift shops,and gentrification’ as the ideal boyfriend. July Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro breaks his leg in a jet-ski crash after one margarita too many on Margarita Island. The entire Greek government flies over to Caracas in a show of solidarity, while Trump and Putin blame each other for the incident in their monthly golf tournament. British PM Theresa May is once again denied entry to 10 Downing Street, because still nobody recognises her. She is reduced to tears and subsequently quits. She tries to land a role as an extra in the final season of Game Of Thrones, but the producers’ response is “you are no Conor McGregor”.August Pokemon Go afficionados hold a minute of silence in every park around the world in remembrance of the tragic events that followed the game’s sudden drop in popularity after the heyday of July 2016. To mark the occasion, Niantic launches Stalkemon Deluxe, a location-based augmented reality game for all devices, in which you can track down old flames.September Airbnb has taken over the world. It’s not just a homestay network anymore. Through its platform you can now sub-rent your spouse, your dog, your company, even that little black dress that you haven’t worn since that New Year’s Eve party in 2005. Angry civilians host protests everywhere, while Nigel Farage, leader of the ‘We Want Our Stuff Back’ movement rallies the troops in a TV interview via satellite saying that “‘I’d love to join with all you fine people, but I’ll be having Wagyu beef with my billionaire friends in The Hamptons”. October The Nobel Peace Prize is awarded to Justin Bieber for his valiant effort thwarting a sea of young Believers from storming his hotel room during a recent visit to Singapore. He pulls a Bob Dylan and misses the ceremony, because Oslo is close to Stockholm and he’s scared of getting Stockholm Syndrome-d. He sends Selena Gomez instead, who botches the lyrics to Baby and goes on a five-year hiatus.November For the entire month, downtown Athens is under road closure due to an unprecedented amount of marathons. Events include ‘Marathon for blind children under five years of age’, ‘Marathon for brunettes in long-term relationships awaiting the proposal’ and ‘Marathon for middle-aged men who wear awful wigs’. Mayor Kaminis brands the effort a success and proposes its extension over 365 days.December Cyber-terrorist group ‘The Artists Formerly Known As Anonymous’ releases every Facebook PM by every user ever. After weeks of riots in the streets, destroyed wedding rings, trashed office desks, a record number of arson attempts, and myriads of flatmates gone missing, countries are forced to declare martial law until further evaluation. All Christmas and New Year festivities are cancelled. Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagramlast_img read more

Des tonnes de déchets souillent le Pacifique après le tsunami

first_imgDes tonnes de déchets souillent le Pacifique après le tsunami L’association Robin de Bois a publié un rapport selon lequel des tonnes de déchets ont été rejetées en mer après le tsunami du 11 mars au Japon. Certains feront le tour du monde en dix ans ; d’autres intoxiqueront les milieux marins dans lesquels ils sombreront.Le 31 mai, l’ONG de protection de l’Homme et de l’environnement Robin des Bois a publié un rapport concernant les tonnes de déchets qui ont été relarguées dans l’océan lorsque le tsunami du 11 mars a reflué. En effet, sur les 25 millions de tonnes de déchets jetés à terre, une importante partie a été emportée en mer. Le document indique que, parmi les plus toxiques, se trouvent divers liquides, les bombes aérosols, les pesticides, les médicaments mais également les avions, les bateaux et les voitures qui vont “progressivement rejeter en mer les hydrocarbures” qu’ils contiennent. La Tribune rappelle qu’il ne faut pas non plus oublier les déchets radioactifs liés à la catastrophe nucléaire de la centrale de Fukushima.L’association a prévu le parcours que suivront ces déchets : ils mettront tout au plus deux ans avant de rejoindre la côte ouest des Etats-Unis, arrivés là une partie se dirigera vers l’Alaska au nord et une autre vers le sud dérivant pendant deux années supplémentaires, au gré du courant de Californie. Ces déchets seront alors soit pris dans un courant circulaire à proximité de Hawaï soit reprendront leur route vers l’ouest en direction du Japon. “Le tour complet se fait en dix ans”, affirme l’association Robin des Bois.Le pire est à craindre car d’une part les déchets qui ne couleront pas représentent des dangers potentiels pour les navires et les sous-marins, d’autre part ceux qui sombreront mettront en danger l’ensemble de la faune et la flore océanique. En effet, lorsque “les appareillages électriques ou électroniques relarguent en mer des polluants persistants comme les PCB et les composés bromés qui se nichent dans les chaînes alimentaires”, indique l’ONG.Le 22 juin 2011 à 18:36 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Biggestever earthquake recorded on North Slope

first_imgThe main earthquake was recorded 52 miles Southwest of Kaktovik. (Image courtesy United States Geological Survey)This story has been updated.The biggest-ever earthquake on the North Slope was recorded just before 7 a.m. Sunday morning, about 50 miles southwest of Kaktovik.Listen nowSo far, there are no reports of any significant impacts to communities or infrastructure as a result of the 6.4 quake.“This is the biggest earthquake within a few hundred miles, at least, of that area that we have records for,” Alaska Earthquake Center seismologist Michael West said.In the hours after the main quake, there were series of substantial aftershocks in the region, including a magnitude 6 earthquake at 1:15 p.m. — that’s the second largest earthquake ever recorded north of the Brooks Range.West said earthquakes are common in the region, but what was surprising about this event was its size.“This earthquake will definitely cause people to re-evaluate the seismic potential of the Eastern Brooks Range and ANWR area,” West said.A North Slope Borough spokesperson said Sunday they were not yet aware of injuries or damage, but the event was felt across the Arctic.Kaktovik resident Amanda Kalaek was at home when she felt the earthquake hit.“I was actually sleeping and got woken up because my bed started swaying and I could hear the pilings on my house shaking as well,” Kalaek said. “I couldn’t believe it was actually shaking the house. I was kind of freaked out, but then I was good after a while.”Kalaek got up and checked on her three daughters, who all slept through the event. But it wasn’t long before people across the North Slope were taking to social media to talk about it.“Everybody was posting on Facebook, and there were family members in different places that were checking to make sure we were okay, and we told them we were all okay,” Kalaek said.The quake was also felt in the state’s biggest oil fields — the Alaska Earthquake Center reports the epicenter was 85 miles southeast of Prudhoe Bay. But North Slope oil operators aren’t reporting any problems.Kate Dugan, a spokesperson for Alyeska Pipeline Service Company, said Sunday that the trans-Alaska pipeline is operating normally. Alyeska has sent up helicopters to survey for any impacts along the northern part of the pipeline.“At the same time, we’re dispatching crews out to our facilities, to the pipeline itself, to work pads, to check for any settlement or movement,” Dugan said.Reached on Sunday, spokespeople for ExxonMobil, ConocoPhillips and BP were also reporting no damages as a result of the quake.“Our team did a walkthrough this morning and for now it appears everything is fine,” BP spokesperson Megan Baldino said in an email.Reporter Ravenna Koenig contributed to this report.last_img read more

US downgrades Palestinian mission

first_imgIsraeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu claps his hands during the dedication ceremony of the new US embassy in Jerusalem, Israel on 14 May. Photo: AFPThe United States downgraded its main diplomatic mission to the Palestinians on Thursday, placing it under the authority of the US embassy to Israel.US secretary of state Mike Pompeo said the consulate general, a separate office which handled dealings with the Palestinians, would be replaced by a new Palestinian Affairs Unit inside the controversial new US embassy in Jerusalem.The move will make the US ambassador to Israel, David Friedman, who is reviled by Palestinians over his support for Israeli settlements in the West Bank, the main interlocutor with the Palestinian leadership.The change, quickly condemned by the Palestinians, follows a series of setbacks for them at the hands of president Donald Trump, who has turned US policy sharply towards Israel.Pro-Israel advocates hailed the decision, saying it confirmed the US recognized the whole of Jerusalem as part of Israel.”This decision is driven by our global efforts to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of our operations. It does not signal a change of US policy,” Pompeo said in a statement.He said the United States “continues to take no position” on how any peace deal between the Israelis and Palestinians would take shape.UnprecedentedThe Palestinian leadership rejected Pompeo’s “efficiency” explanation.The decision has “a lot to do with pleasing an ideological US team that is willing to disband the foundations of American foreign policy, and of the international system, in order to reward Israeli violations and crimes,” the Palestinians’ chief negotiator Saeb Erekat said.”The Trump administration is part of the problem, not part of the solution,” he added. International powers have for decades maintained separate and autonomous representations to Israel and the Palestinians on the basis of supporting the eventual creation of an independent Palestinian state.They have insisted that the status of Jerusalem, which both the Israelis and Palestinians see as their capital, should be negotiated between the parties as part of any end deal.Last December, Trump reversed longstanding US policy and recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, prompting Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas to boycott his administration.The embassy was officially transferred on May 14.Since then, the Trump administration has forced the Palestinians to shutter their Washington mission and has slashed hundreds of millions of dollars in aid, in a bid to force them to the negotiating table.Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner, alongside Friedman and peace envoy Jason Greenblatt, has been working for months on a still-secret peace proposal, which Palestinians fear will be overly one-sided toward Israel.The move Thursday nearly closes off all direct diplomatic contacts between the United States and the Palestinians, analysts said.Ofer Zalzberg of the International Crisis Group think-tank said the US would be the only major power without a separate, independent representative office for the Palestinians.”Other countries have gone to great lengths to avoid having the same representatives to Israel and the Palestinian Authority,” he told AFP.Robert Danin, a former senior US government official dealing with Israeli-Palestinian issues, said the move was a victory for “hard right partisans” who have sought to eliminate the Palestinian-focused consulate general “for decades.”The consulate general “is THE eyes and ears into Palestinian politics and society. Its independence from US Embassy Israel provided Washington w/solid, unvarnished reporting and analysis,” he said on Twitter.But Eugene Kontorovich, a law professor with the Jerusalem-based Kohelet Policy Forum and advocate for the embassy move, said the decision was more evidence the US considered Jerusalem to be fully part of Israel.”This step confirms that the US recognizes the entire city as Israel’s capital,” he said.State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert defended the move, saying the new Palestinian Affairs Unit inside the embassy would maintain contacts with Palestinians in the West Bank, Gaza Strip and Jerusalem at the same level as before the change.”We value our relationship with the Palestinian people. We look forward to continued partnership and dialogue with them and, we hope in future, with the Palestinian leadership,” she said via Twitter.last_img read more

Here’s the actual deal with the movie: yes, says Dr.S. Cole says Genetics and other lifestyle factors make it tough to credit curcumin alone But again the evidence is promising So why isnt every doctor from Memphis to Mumbai telling her patients to take a curcumin supplement First of all theres no expert consensus on how much of the stuff youd have to get into your system to see health benefits Both Aggarwal and Cole say effective dosages will likely vary from person to person and wouldnt be the same when it comes to the treatment or prevention of various diseases "I tell people to take 500 mg a day in capsule form to keep the doctor away" Aggarwal says But thats more of an educated guess than an evidence-backed finding he adds (Youd have to swallow a teaspoon or more of ground turmeric to get that much curcumin) Cole says your body may struggle to absorb curcumin if youre ingesting it on its own "Its not water soluble so 99% of it goes right through you" he explains Mixing curcumin with fat seems to supercharge absorption rates And Coles National Institutes of Health-funded experiments have led to the development of a commercial curcumin supplement called Longvida (for which Cole and UCLA receive royalties) He says another supplement called Meriva also has a lipid component and seems to be effective But not every expert is quite so bullish on curcumin supplements "I think curcumin is great but its not a miracle" says Dr David Heber UCLAs professor emeritus of medicine and public health and founding director of that universitys Center for Human Nutrition Heber says your levels of abdominal fat the quality of your diet and how much you exercise are a lot more important than curcumin when it comes to inflammation and your health He also says spices in generalnot just one component of turmericare healthy and woefully underused in the US ("I joke that our favorite spices are ketchup and mustard" he says) While turmeric is "among the most important spices" when it comes to potential health powers Heber says rosemary cinnamon oregano and many others could make similar claims So whats the turmeric takeaway "I would absolutely encourage people to add turmeric to the foods they eat" Heber says A lot of research has been done on turmeric and curcumin and theres not much risk of overdoing it even if you eat several teaspoons a day Just dont count on a miracle "People expect these nutrients to work like drugs but they dont" Heber says On the other hand eating turmeric and a varied assortment of spicescoupled with a healthy diet and regular exercisewill likely have very real health benefits he says Contact us at editors@timecomSony is reportedly turning to defensive hacking to prevent its breached files from spreading after it was hit by hackers who leaked unreleased movies and employee data last month First the company is flooding websites hosting stolen files with dummy content unnamed sources told Re/code That move makes it harder for users to know if they’re downloading real leaked Sony files But that technique is nothing new media companies often used it in the early days of file sharing to dissuade piracy in the dial-up era when illegally downloading a movie was an hours-long affair The more interesting claim in re/code’s report is that Sony is using Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks against websites hosting stolen Sony files Those attacks send bogus Internet traffic to a target server in hopes of slowing other users’ connections to a standstill DDoS attacks are easy from a technological standpoint A hacker who wants to conduct one only needs control over a large number of computers which they typically get from sneaking malware onto unsuspecting users’ machines Still that Sony could be attacking servers hosting its stolen stuff is significant in terms of understanding the company’s damage control strategy A recondite group of hackers that some have linked to North Korea have already published Sony Pictures Entertainment financial information salaries

is a lot better than yesterday" Brunelle said "It’s not near as windy and not near as cold"Despite help from out-of-state agencies equipped with remotely operated underwater vehicles high winds and poor visibility stymied Wednesday’s efforts But the weather was clear Thursday morning with temperatures staying above zeroSearchers on all-terrain vehicles traveled on and off the ice returning occasionally to the law enforcement command center located near third bridge where trailers and a fire sat waitingVincent Graves a Leech Lake searcher said the agencies began drilling holes in the ice Monday and have covered almost 10 acres Thin ice has prevented drillers from moving farther out onto the lake but Brunelle said the search will continue as the ice thickens"(We’ll) just keep expanding just keep moving to where there’s safe ice and where we can keep looking" he said "We’re quite confident that we don’t need to work our way to the center of the lake but we need to work our way out a little bit further than we’re able to go right now"Searches have focused on an area on the east side of the lake said Gary Martin a conservation officer with Red LakeRed Lake Department of Public

It was said to be one of the major strongholds of the Boko Haram insurgents which they used for various activities including training of recruits organising attacks on various places and holding hostages Our source within the military said after their dislodgment from dozens of communities in northern and central parts of Borno State the insurgents intensified shuttling between Sambisa Forest and Alagarno which also allowed them to get in and out of some communities in Yobe State He said after weeks of surveillance and mapping fighter jets and ground troops with latest fighting equipment were deployed to Alagarno for an operation that is still ongoing “Hundreds of the terrorists have been killed during aerial reconnaissance and ground operations which started days ago and still ongoing We are making serious progress because we ensured that all their escape routes have been blocked before the latest operation began” a security source said “After we took over Gwoza even the
