Published on September 06, 2017 at 06:40AM: Standing firmly behind its belief that filtering the uploads is the way to go, the Presidency has worked hard in order to make the proposal for the new copyright Directive even more harmful than the Commission’s original proposal, and pushing it further into the realms of illegality……….

The victims of the attack are mostly college students and people who came to enroll with the police, witnesses and law enforcers say. They add the blast was heard across the city and a plume of smoke could be seen from a distance.
What happened is we were all gathering and … (the bomber) exploded right next to all of the police college classmates,” eyewitness Jamil al-Khaleedi told AP. “It went off among all of them, and they flew through the air.

Photographs of the aftermath of the blast have quickly been posted on social media. They show the burning wreckage of the vehicle, another car burning and bloodied bodies lying on the pavement.

A car was passing when the bomb went off and was set on fire along with everyone inside, according to police.

The situation is catastrophic. We arrived to find bodies piled on top of each other,” a paramedic at the scene told Reuters as ambulances took casualties away.

We found the top part of one person screaming, while his bottom half was completely severed.”

The Interior Ministry said it was suspending enrollment at the police college.

No group has so far claimed responsibility for the attack.

Yemen has seen an increase in instability since the 2011 popular uprising that ousted President Ali Abdullah Saleh.

Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) has been increasingly active, staging a growing number of terror attacks. Neighboring nations are fearing of AQAP gaining enough power to carry out attacks outside Yemen.

At least 33 people were killed in a suicide attack near a cultural centre in southwest Yemen a week ago. The attack targeted the Houthi Shiite Muslim militias, who have managed to drive AQAP from many areas they used to control.

In November, the AQAP military chief vowed to carry out fierce attacks against Houthi rebels.

#AceNewsServices – PAKISTAN:Dec.16 – More than 100 people, including 84 students, have been killed in a Taliban seizure of a military-run school in the city of Peshawar, Pakistan, according to provincial authorities.

“In CMH (Combined Military Hospital) there are around 60 and there are 24 dead in Lady Reading (hospital),” Pervaiz Khattak, chief minister of the province, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, told local media.

The numbers of dead and injured may still rise as the casualties of the assault are counted.

Some 500 students and teachers were in the Army Public School on Warsak Road at the time of the attack. Pakistan’s military said most of the civilians escaped, but some had been taken hostage by the assailants.

According to media reports, as many as 10 militants dressed in Pakistani military uniforms entered the school compound on Tuesday at around noon. They torched a car at the site and proceeded with a raid on the facility.

The Pakistani Army responded to the emergency, dispatching security forces to cordon off the area and sending military helicopters for surveillance. A commando force arrived at the site.

In the ensuing battle with Pakistani security forces, three militants reportedly were killed. One of them is said to have detonated a suicide vest he was wearing.

At least one Pakistani soldier was reported killed in the gun battle, which seriously damaged the school building.

As clashes inside the school continued, some of the hostages were still believed to be held by the militants, Inayatullah Khan, the provincial minister for local government, said, citing the military.

Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif called the attack on the school a national tragedy and said he would personally supervise the army operation in Peshawar.

“I can’t stay back in Islamabad. This is a national tragedy unleashed by savages. These were my kids,” he said in a statement.

The provincial government declared three days of mourning over the tragedy.

The Taliban claimed responsibility for the attack, but claimed it was not targeting the pupils.“Our suicide bombers have entered the school, they have instructions not to harm the children, but to target army personnel,” Taliban spokesman Muhammad Umar Khorasani told Reuters.

The militants, however, see older students at the school as legitimate targets for their attack.

The Taliban said it staged the attack in retaliation for the Pakistani Army’s ongoing operations in the North Waziristan tribal area. It said it had targeted the school because “because the government is targeting our families and females” in the military operations.

“We want them to feel the pain,” Khorasani said.

#AceBreakingNews – NIGERIA – Nov.10 – Several dozen students were killed Monday when a suicide bomber detonated an explosion at a school in north-east Nigeria, according to media reports.

The Associated Press reported the bomber was disguised in a school uniform.

The suicide bomb attack killed 47 students and injured 79 others on Monday in north-east Nigeria, AFP said.“There was an explosion detonated by a suicide bomber” when students gathered for morning assembly at their school in Potiskum, Yobe state, according to national police spokesman Emmanuel Ojukwu.

However, the Associated Press said soldiers who rushed to the scene were chased away by a crowd throwing stones and shouting that they are angry at the military’s inability to halt a 5-year-old insurgency by the Islamist extremist group Boko Haram.

The attack so far has nobody claiming responsibility but was likely carried out by Islamist extremists from the Boko Haram group, he added, who have been more active lately.

#AceNewsServices – MEXICO – Nov.08 – This is the story l have been following since the first discovery of these missing students. The latest information is that the  Forty-three Mexican students who went missing six weeks ago were likely abducted by police and handed over to a local gang who murdered them and burned their bodies, Mexico’s attorney general said Friday.

Attorney General Jesus Murillo Karam said three members of the Guerreros Unidos gang were apprehended last week and confessed to burning a number of bodies near Iguala in the Guerrero state in an effort to remove evidence of the killings.

“They didn’t just burn the bodies with their clothes, they also burned the clothes of those who participated,” Karam told a news conference. “They tried to erase every possible trace.”

“I know the huge pain this information gives the families, a pain that we all share in solidarity,” he added.

The victims were young male students from an all-male liberal college in rural Ayotzinapa. On September 26, the students arrived in the city of Iguala where they planned to stage a protest over a lack of government education spending. Following a clash with police, 43 members of the group disappeared.

Karam presented videotaped confessions by the murder suspects that included a segment showing charred bits of bone and teeth dragged from the San Juan River in Cocula, a town near Iguala.

Authorities announced Friday they had discovered six bags of unidentified human remains along the river’s bank.

In a telling testament to the violence now proliferating in Mexico, the district attorney noted that human remains found in hidden graves after the students went missing were not those of the 43 young men.

Karam said the abductors questioned the students about their alleged membership in other gangs, adding there was no evidence to support the claim the missing students were involved in gang activity.

The attorney general said the government was carrying out DNA tests to confirm the identity of the bodies, a process that he said “will be a challenge” due to the badly burned fragments available to forensic experts. The remains would be delivered to the University of Innsbruck in Austria for concluding DNA identification, he added.

“I have to identify, to do everything in my power, to identify, to know if these were the students,” Murillo said.

Meanwhile, more details are emerging in the shocking story that has stunned Mexico, a country that is no stranger to violence, much of it drug-related.

This week, authorities arrested Iguala Mayor Jose Luis Abarca, who is believed to have ordered the abduction of the students, and his wife, Maria de los Angeles Pineda. Investigators say the mayor ordered his police chief Felipe Flores Velasquez, who remains a fugitive, to prevent the student protest in the city.

To date, 74 people have been arrested in connection to the case, authorities said.

Meanwhile, the parents of the 43 students have been highly critical of Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto, who they say didn’t do enough to track down their missing children. The lingering frustration after weeks of failed efforts to find the students has fueled protests and even violence across the country. This week, thousands of demonstrators marched on the capital, Mexico City, to protest the government’s response to the incident.

Peña Nieto, who was elected two years ago after pledging to tackle gang-related violence, promised that justice would be served.

“The investigations will be carried out to the full, all those responsible will be punished under the law,” he said.

“The capture of those who ordered it isn’t enough; we will arrest everyone who participated in these abominable crimes.”

About 100,000 people in Mexico have lost their lives in violence related to organized crime since 2007.

MEXICO: ‘ Mass Grave May Contain 43 Students Missing After Recent Clashes With Local Police ‘

#AceNewsServices – MEXICO – October 05  – A mass-grave has been unearthed in in southern Mexico by security forces investigating the role of local police in clashes with students, raising fears the pits might hold 43 students missing since the confrontations.

Guerrero State Prosecutor Inaky Blanco did not say Saturday night how many bodies were in six burial pits uncovered on a hillside on the outskirts of the southern town of Iguala, and he declined to speculate about whether the dead were the missing students.

The students were protesting against what they claimed are discriminatory hiring practices for teachers that favour urban students over rural ones.

“It would be irresponsible” to jump to conclusions before tests to identify the bodies, Blanco said. Officials said the federal Attorney General’s Office and the National Human Rights Commission had sent teams of experts to aid state authorities in identifying the remains.

Guerrero Gov. Angel Aguirre said the victims had been “savagely slaughtered.”

About 100 soldiers, marines and federal and state police cordoned off the area where the grave site was found in the poor Pueblo Viejo district of Iguala, which is about 120 miles (200 kilometres) south of Mexico City.

“The Mexican state cannot permit such an outrageous incident to go unpunished,” said Mexican Federal Chief of Investigations Tomas Zeron.
