Welcome to the North American Army

Will historians one day record that “It happened on Valentine’s Day” when chronicling the timetable of the North American Union (NAU)?

With no warning, a significant military agreement was signed by the chief Armed Forces commanders of both the U.S.A. and Canada on Feb. 14.  The agreement allows the armed forces from one nation to support the armed forces of the other nation during a domestic civil emergency.

Prince Harry is one of the Boys

TALIBAN fanatics were last night feared to be hunting down Prince Harry after he secretly fought in the Afghan badlands for ten weeks.

The 23-year-old Household Cavalry lieutenant killed up to 30 of the enemy on his frontline tour by directing at least THREE air strikes.

He was given NO special privileges and faced the same high risks as the troops around him.

And he got up close to the enemy — bringing down bombs on Taliban attackers in his role as a Forward Air Controller.

Prince Harry ... serves in Afghanistan

Last night the head of the Army heaped praise on the royal.

Gen Sir Richard Dannatt, Chief of the General Staff, said: “His conduct has been exemplary. He is a credit to the nation.”

PM Gordon Brown said: “The whole of Britain will be proud of the outstanding service he is giving.”

Conservative leader David Cameron said: “Harry has been incredibly brave.”

Lawyer Says Bin Laden Did Not Orchestrate 9/11 During Terror Trial

Skepticism towards the 9/11 official story reached the Australian Supreme Court this week after a lawyer asserted that the attacks were not orchestrated by Osama bin Laden during the trial of an alleged terror group in Melbourne.

"To say that this was all orchestrated by Osama bin Laden is a silly thing to do. He’s never claimed responsibility for it," Remy van de Wiel QC told the Australian jury.

Unless you accept the credibility of a dodgy videotape of a fat Bin Laden doppelganger "miraculously discovered" in a house in Jalalabad by U.S. troops and pushed as authentic by the ever-honest U.S. government, then van de Wiel has a point.

Indeed, Bin Laden’s first public statement following the 9/11 attacks was to deny any responsibility for carrying them out.

"I have already said that I am not involved in the 11 September attacks in the United States. As a Muslim, I try my best to avoid telling a lie. I had no knowledge of these attacks, nor do I consider the killing of innocent women, children and other humans as an appreciable act. Islam strictly forbids causing harm to innocent women, children and other people. Such a practice is forbidden even in the course of a battle,"

Bin Laden told the Pakistani-based Ummat newspaper.

Source at U.N. tells of secret UFO meeting February 12, 2008

I received the following email from two trusted colleagues (Clay and Shawn Pickering) regarding a reliable source informing them that a secret meeting occurred yesterday morning (Feb 12) at the New York office of the United Nations concerning the recent spate of UFO sightings.

It appears that a number of nation states are concerned about the impact of increased UFO sightings and wish to be briefed about what is happening. Their source, who currently works in the diplomatic corps, had to travel for an early morning off the record meeting at the UN.

Their source revealed that a secret UFO working group exists that is authorizing the release of such information to the public, in an effort to acclimate others to what is about to unfold. A date of 2013 was given as the time for official disclosure and/or when extraterrestrials show up in an unambiguous way. In the interim there will be acclimation related releases of information. Importantly, the source revealed that the events leading up to official disclosure will involve more ethically oriented extraterrestrials, and they will not pose a military threat to the world.

Pakistan blocks YouTube over 'blasphemous' content

The Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) [official website] has ordered the country's 70 Internet service providers to block access to popular video-sharing website YouTube [corporate website] because of "blasphemous content, videos and documents" posted on the site, a government official confirmed Sunday. The order, issued by the director of the PTA on Friday, claimed the ratio of "non-Islamic objectionable video[s]" has increased on the website and instructed providers to block the site until further notice. Local media has cited different reasons for the government ban, ranging from controversial depictions of the Prophet Mohammed to promotional materials for an upcoming film by Dutch politician Geert Wilders. A PTA official, speaking on the condition of anonymity, told AP on Sunday that the ban was a direct response to a movie trailer [video] posted on the website for Wilders' film, "Forbidden," which depicts Islam in a highly negative light.

Men who take Viagra 'put their fertility at risk'

Using Viagra may be damaging men's fertility, researchers have warned. Experiments suggest that the anti-impotence drug can harm sperm and may prevent some men from fathering families.

In particular, young men who use the drug recreationally could impair their ability to have families. And fertility clinics that prescribe Viagra to help men produce sperm for IVF treatments could be preventing some couples from conceiving.

'I think it is worrying that some IVF clinics are using Viagra in order to boost fertility results,' said Dr David Glenn, a consultant gynaecologist at Queen's University Belfast. 'Couples that go there for treatment are, by definition, already having problems getting pregnant. Giving male partners something that could make the problem worse is scarcely the right approach.'

UK deeply involved in CIA renditions

A former British special forces commando who quit the military says Britain is "deeply involved" in the US practice of rendition.

The soldier, Ben Griffin, quit the elite Special Air Service (SAS) in protest at what he said were US abuses in Iraq, BBC's website reported.
He left the SAS in 2005 after taking part in operations in the Persian Gulf and said that British soldiers detained suspected extremists and interrogated them before handing them over to the US military.
"We were under no illusion as to what awaited the individuals handed over by us," he said in a statement issued by Stop the War Coalition, with which he is now involved.
Britain, which supported the US-led invasion of Iraq in 2003, has maintained that it has not allowed the CIA "extraordinary rendition" flights with suspected extremists on board to land on British soil.

The revelation - which has raised questions that there may be more to follow - came after an administrative error on the part of the US, he added.
Meanwhile, Griffin says, "The UK government is deeply involved in the whole process of rendition." He has details of dates of operations in which he was involved and a letter from one British interrogator who was "upset at what he has been part of".

Death toll rises in Turkish army's northern Iraq incursion

AIR_F-16s_Turkish_Armed_lg[1] Thirty-five Kurdish rebels and two Turkish soldiers were killed in fighting in northern Iraq on Saturday according to a statement released by the Turkish General Staff as Turkish troops continued their operation against Kurdish Workers' Party (PKK) guerrillas. The deaths on Saturday bring the overall death toll from the operation that began on Thursday night to seven Turkish soldiers and 79 PKK rebels, the General Staff said in a statement posted on its website.

Fears that the incursion may result in the destabilization of the region were raised when the president of the Autonomous Region of Kurdistan, Massoud Barzani, said Kurds would fight back Turkish troops if military operations along the Iraq-Turkish borders extended to reach Kurdish inhabitants, while the PKK has vowed to take "the battle to Turkish cities" if the operation continues.

The PKK said the Turkish operation was an attack on the Kurdish regions of Iraq and said the group's forces were still intact. "We will move the battle to the Turkish cities, if the Turks did not stop attacking the Autonomous Region of Kurdistan," PKK's Ahmed Damis told Deutsche Presse-Agentur dpa.

Nationalists Obsess Over Medvedev's Roots

Nikolai Bondarik fears that there will be dire consequences for Russia if the heavily favored front-runner in the presidential election, First Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev, wins as expected on March 2.

With Medvedev in power, Russia's natural resources will be plundered by foreign investors, Moscow will alienate its traditional Arab allies, and tens of thousands of Israelis will become managers at key Russian institutions, "including the police, army and secret services," Bondarik said by telephone from St. Petersburg.

The reason for Bondarik's alarm: He is firmly convinced that Medvedev is Jewish.

"We are categorically against him because he is an ethnic Jew and does not conceal his sympathies toward Judaism," said Bondarik, leader of the St. Petersburg branch of the Russian Party, an unregistered nationalist organization.

The conspiracy theory that Jews are plotting to seize power has always enjoyed an illustrious place in the history of Russian nationalism -- and it surfaced again when Medvedev, a candidate whose perceived Western leanings are distasteful to many nationalists, became the prohibitive favorite to succeed President Vladimir Putin.

There is no hard evidence that Medvedev has Jewish roots, and a spokeswoman for his campaign declined to answer a question about the subject.

Planet-hunters set for big bounty

Rocky planets, possibly with conditions suitable for life, may be more common than previously thought in our galaxy, a study has found.

New evidence suggests more than half the Sun-like stars in the Milky Way could have similar planetary systems.

There may also be hundreds of undiscovered worlds in outer parts of our Solar System, astronomers believe.

Future studies of such worlds will radically alter our understanding of how planets are formed, they say.

New findings about planets were presented at the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) in Boston.

'Tony Blair sanctioned racist plot to murder Diana'

A vast conspiracy to murder Diana, Princess of Wales, at the behest of the Duke of Edinburgh was outlined today by Mohamed al Fayed as he took the witness stand at the inquests of the princess and of his son, Dodi.

The alleged plot involved Prince Philip, Prince Charles, British, French and American security services, the French judiciary, ambulance staff, pathologists, newspaper editors, two former Metropolitan police commissioners, the Princess’s sister and brother-in-law, the former British ambassador to France, and the Princess’s lawyer, among others, and it was sanctioned by Tony Blair.

Diana car crash

The motive was racist, asserted the Harrods owner. The Duke could not abide the thought of the Princess marrying Dodi Fayed because he was “of a different religion [and] who was naturally tanned [with] curly hair”, Mr Al Fayed said. He himself had learnt that his son was to marry the Princess an hour before they died, he said. He told the jury that his son had telephoned him to say he had bought the ring, and that they were shortly to announce their engagement.

Albanian celebrations leave Serbs defiant

Kosovo declared itself an independent state yesterday, celebrating a final break from Serbia. But the move immediately widened already ominous political rifts, with tensions inside the state amplifying on the world stage.

Image:Flag of Kosovo.svgHashim Thaci, prime minister of the world's newest nation, stood before parliament in Pristina and announced the creation of an independent Kosovo that would be "proud, independent and free".

The affirmation of "a democratic, secular and multi-ethnic republic" acknowledges that Kosovo's independence will be subject to supervision by outside administrators and will rely for a time on Nato troops to guard borders and keep peace among ethnic groups.

Kosovo's founding document was handwritten on parchment and signed by all members of parliament in the style of the American declaration of independence. Parliament also approved a new flag: a golden map of the country on a blue background with six white stars.

Image:Kosovo ethnic 2005.pngThe declaration and leaders' speeches stressed rights for minorities. But the move was emphatically rejected by the Serbs in Kosovo. While the Albanian majority danced and enjoyed 80 tonnes of fireworks, the Serb enclaves were defiant. In the Serb area in Zvecan, a grenade exploded outside a UN-run court. An unexploded grenade was found in Mitrovica, outside a building used by the International Civilian Office, which will take over supervisory duties from the UN.

“They will kill Obama if he becomes US president”

British Nobel Prize winner Doris Lessing caused uproar last night by predicting the assassination of Barack Obama if he becomes the first black U.S. president.

The 88-year-old novelist’s remarks came as the Democratic candidate toasted the most successful day in his White House campaign.

Mr Obama, the 46-year-old son of a black Kenyan man and a white American, dismissed Mrs Lessing’s comments.

Miss Lessing said: “He would probably not last long, a black man in the position of president. They would kill him.”

She said it would be better if Mrs Clinton, 60, became America’s first woman president with Obama as her running mate.

“Hillary is a very sharp lady. It might be calmer if she wins,” she told a Swedish newspaper.

But one Democratic analyst said: “Suggesting Obama is in danger if he wins the election in November is not only divisive, it is insulting to the American people.”

Princeton University political science professor-Melissa Harris-Lacewell raised assassination fears last month, saying: “For many black supporters, there is a lot of anxiety that he will be killed. It is on people’s minds.

Ciggies licence for £10 a year in UK

HEALTH watchdogs hope the hassle of filling out forms to get a proposed smoking permit will make more people kick the habit.

Applications for the £10 annual licence for over18s would need proof of age and a passport-style photograph.

The idea has been proposed by Julian Le Grand, who is chairman of Health England and a senior adviser to former Prime Minister Tony Blair.

He believes smokers would be helped to break their nicotine habit if they had to make a decision to “opt in”. The professor, from the London School of Economics, has compiled a paper for Health Minister Lord Darzi on the plan.

He said: “Suppose every individual who wanted to buy tobacco had to purchase a permit.

“And suppose further they had to do this every year. To get a permit would involve filling out a form and supplying a photograph, as well as paying the fee.

“Evidence of age would have to be provided.”

Smokers would be forced to show the laminated photo-card in shops when they bought cigarettes. Cops could demand that any youngsters they catch smoking must flash the pass.

Three Canadians face extradition to, and life imprisonment in the United States - but they've never been there!

Michelle Rainey, Marc Emery, and Greg WilliamsOn February 6th 2008, Marc Emery, Michelle Rainey and Greg Williams appeared in BC Supreme Court to schedule dates for the extradition hearing. However, because plea deal negotiations are underway between Marc Emery's lawyer and the governments of the US and Canada, the court appearance was adjourned to March 5th, 2008. Once the deal proposal is finalized and offered to Marc for review (which may or may not happen before March 5th), Marc will decide whether to accept it or not. If he doesn't want to accept the proposed deal, a court appearance will be scheduled to set new extradition hearing dates. If he does accept the deal, he will have 30 to 60 days of freedom left before being temporarily extradited to the United States. (See the No Extradition forum in the CC Forums for more information and discussion.)

China: Crackdown Violates Olympic Promises

With just six months to go before the Olympics open in Beijing on August 8, a systematic crackdown on dissent has significantly worsened respect for fundamental rights in China, Human Rights Watch said today.

Beijing has given virtually no signs that it intends to keep the promises made to the international community in exchange for hosting the Games,” said Sophie Richardson, Asia advocacy director at Human Rights Watch. “On the contrary, we have witnessed a systematic effort to silence, suppress and repress Chinese citizens who are trying to push the government into greater respect for fundamental rights.”  
Human Rights Watch pointed to a growing pattern of using loosely defined subversion charges to suppress dissidents and activists ahead of the Games. On February 4, the writer Lü Gengsong was sentenced to four years in prison for “inciting subversion against state power,” becoming the sixth high profile dissident in less than a year to be arrested or sentenced under these charges.

Spielberg boycotts Olympic role

US film director Steven Spielberg has withdrawn as an artistic adviser to the 2008 Olympics in Beijing.

In a statement, he accused China of not doing enough to pressure its ally Sudan to end the "continuing human suffering" in the troubled western Darfur region. At least 200,000 people have been killed and two million forced from their homes in the five-year conflict.

Human Rights Watch welcomed Spielberg's move, and said it should prompt other corporate sponsors to press for reform.

[abc_speilberg_070725_ms.jpg]In a statement, Mr Spielberg said: "I find that my conscience will not allow me to continue business as usual.

"At this point, my time and energy must be spent not on Olympic ceremonies, but on doing all I can to help bring an end to the unspeakable crimes against humanity that continue to be committed in Darfur."

He added: "Sudan's government bears the bulk of the responsibility for these on-going crimes, but the international community, and particularly China, should be doing more."

Cologne's Turkish Spectacle: Erdogan's One-Man Show

Erdogan begins his speech -- which won't be translated into German -- with flowery words. "The Turkish people are a people of friendship and tolerance," he says. "Wherever they go, they only bring love and joy." What he means is: Don't bring any shame on us, and stay calm.

Erdogan goes on to list the efforts that his government has made to push forward the German investigation into the Ludwigshafen blaze. But he doesn't try to make the incident any less painful. "Hopefully we'll never have to experience such pain again," he says at the close of this part of his speech.

The prime minister goes on to address the integration of Turks in Germany. "I understand that you are sensitive about the issue of assimilation," Erdogan says. "No one can demand that from you." Assimilation -- in other words, conforming to German culture -- is a catchword that Turkish immigrants associate with their fear of losing their national identity. Erdogan does not repeat the controversial demand he made to German Chancellor Angela Merkel (more...) on Friday, when he called for the founding of Turkish-language educational institutions in Germany. Today, he only says: "It is your natural right to teach your children their mother tongue."

During his long speech, Erdogan plays the integration card as he sees fit. He makes conciliatory noises, but he stops short of making a plea for assimilation. Although much remains vague, at times he takes a pragmatic tone. "Take advantage of Germany's educational institutions," he says. "It's a disadvantage if you don't speak the language of the country." Nevertheless, his speech, in which the phrases "we Turks" and "the Germans" appear again and again, does deliver a clear message: You may live in Germany, but you are Turks -- and I am your prime minister

'They all had to be eliminated'

Kang Khek Ieu was known as 'Cambodia's Himmler', a torturer who oversaw the deaths of 17,000 people. As he prepares to go on trial, he gives a chilling insight into the Khmer Rouge – the most detailed account yet from a top henchman.

He was Pol Pot's trusted henchman, the brilliant mathematician who calmly fashioned an efficient apparatus of torture and death out of a Phnom Penh high school and who oversaw, during the  Khmer Rouge's reign of terror, the interrogation and cudgelling to death of some 17,000 Cambodians.

"I and everyone else who worked in that place knew that anyone who entered had to be psychologically demolished, eliminated by steady work, given no way out. No answer could avoid death. Nobody who came to us had any chance of saving himself."

The command had come from above, he said. "All the prisoners had to be eliminated. We saw enemies, enemies, enemies everywhere." He could not have rebelled or fled, he insisted. "If I had tried to flee, they were holding my family hostage, and my family would have suffered the same fate as the other prisoners in Tuol Sleng. If I had fled or rebelled it would not have helped anyone."

Governor Schwarzenegger Backed Immoral Sex Pheromone Spraying Continues...

Sometimes bad dreams do come true. My bad dream was that the government issued quarantine, and forced everybody to be vaccinated for some fake disease. In my dream, I took my family, and fled to the hills to avoid being vaccinated.
Now, nine months later, this dream has come true. In an emergency, I relinquished my rental contract and moved my pregnant partner and three and a half year old daughter out of Santa Cruz, CA, to avoid being exposed to potentially deadly chemicals.
The chemicals, known by their trade names as Checkmate OLR-F and Checkmate LBAM-F, have been sprayed via state owned airplanes in September and October in Monterey County California. These same aerial chemicals, despite their known health risks, were sprayed on two nights (11-8, 11-9) over the people of Santa Cruz County. The purpose of this spray is to control the mating/reproductive habits of the light brown apple moth (LBAM). The prevailing belief is that the mating habits of this moth needs to be controlled because the USDA believes that the moth might cause 100 million dollars of damage (Realize that this figure is not a fact, but based on a government guess).

Why Has Ron Paul All But Suspended His Presidential Campaign?

Congressman Ron Paul's decision to essentially suspend his presidential campaign and focus instead on safeguarding his Congressional seat will confuse and disappoint many of his supporters, while delighting establishment media debunkers, but the truth of how far we have progressed and the reality of the battles that lie ahead show that the campaign has made a shrewd decision.

Undoubtedly a certain portion of Ron Paul supporters will feel disappointed and let down by the fact that the Congressman is all but suspending his presidential campaign and most of these individuals will be new to politics. They need to understand that we can not and will not win the game with the first roll of the dice. America was not gutted overnight and it will not be restored overnight.

first major salvo in a battle for our freedom that will never end. What we are fighting is a war of ideas, an information war and a game of brinkmanship. The fact that Ron Paul's message resonated with and woke up millions of people is a victory in itself and provides us a niche with which to continue our efforts.

Footage aired for reporters showed an apparent training operation in which the boys are seen storming a house and holding guns to the heads of mock residents. Another tape showed a young boy wearing a suicide vest and posing with automatic weapons.

They also are shown being taught to use rocket-propelled grenade launchers.

Humans tampering with the atmosphere may be causing extreme weather patterns, experts believe.
They believe that the debate on climate change has ignored the role of environmental manipulation projects.

Artificial manipulation of the climate is nothing new. During the Vietnam war, the US military used cloud seeding techniques to cause torrential rain and disrupt enemy supply lines.
Last month, Chinese media reported that the Communist party was preparing 'rain-prevention techniques' to be used on the opening and closing ceremonies of the Beijing Olympics this year.

But some experts believe that new technology can enable governments to manipulate climate patterns globally for military use.
Extreme weather patterns in recent years, such as record numbers of hurricanes, floods and droughts across the world, may have been the result of such technology being tested, they claim.
Without concrete evidence to support them, such claims to many remain little more than a hot topic for conspiracy theorists. But there are things about the various atmospheric research projects run by the US military that that do not stack up.

The High-Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) based in Gokona, Alaska, an array of transmitters pointed toward the sky, is claimed to be a scientific endeavour for studying the properties and behaviour of the upper atmosphere (ionosphere).

It consists of an 'Ionospheric Research Instrument', which fires a beam of energy at the upper atmosphere, and a series of other antenna for monitoring changes.

But to many the project resembles a 'death ray' with all the hallmarks of a James Bond film. Canadian economist and policy adviser Dr Michel Chossudovsky calls it a "weapon of mass destruction".

The project is funded by the U.S. airforce and navy, and on its website claims that a key purpose is to "enhance communications and surveillance systems for both civilian and defence purposes"
The idea is to magnify communications signals so they can be received by receivers on submarines and underground bunkers.

Cloud Seeding

For the first time in several years, Eastern Idaho is experimenting with a cloud seeding program this winter. That's when iodized crystals are shot into clouds to produce snow.
Last year Paul Romrell knew something had to be done to get Eastern Idaho out of a drought.

Paul Romrell, Cloud Seeding Chairman: "I was really frustrated. I thought that we should do everything humanly possible to generate as much water as possible."

That meant Paul and a committee contacted cities and counties in our area asking them to support a weather modification, or cloud seeding, program.
Romrell: "You wait until you've got the right atmosphere and fire up a generator and you introduce into the flames silver iodized crystals which go up into the atmosphere."
Those crystals then turn into snow. Right now there's 23 generators running in Eastern Idaho all of them in rugged areas. Every time a storm's about to move in, those generators are turned on.
Romrell: "We're actually making some difference although we can't claim any credit for the snow that we're seeing in the valley because it's not in our target areas." [KIDK]

British plan to build training camp for Taliban fighters in Afghanistan

Britain planned to build a Taliban training camp for 2,000 fighters in southern Afghanistan, as part of a top-secret deal to make them swap sides, intelligence sources in Kabul have revealed. The plans were discovered on a memory stick seized by Afghan secret police in December.

The Afghan government claims they prove British agents were talking to the Taliban without permission from the Afghan President, Hamid Karzai, despite Gordon Brown's pledge that Britain will not negotiate. The Prime Minister told Parliament on 12 December: "Our objective is to defeat the insurgency by isolating and eliminating their leaders. We will not enter into any negotiations with these people."

The British insist President Karzai's office knew what was going on. But Mr Karzai has expelled two top diplomats amid accusations they were part of a plot to buy-off the insurgents.

British Iraq veterans are denied help for combat trauma

Hundreds of veterans, including many who served in Iraq and Afghanistan, are being denied vital help by the government to cope with the psychological fallout of war.

Despite ministerial pledges to improve support for British soldiers suffering mental health problems, veterans diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) are still not receiving funding for specialist medical treatment.

Combat Stress, a charity that assists veterans with mental health issues, is dealing with a 27 per cent increase in GP referrals of veterans - 1,200 new cases a year. More than half of those reporting psychotic nightmares, depression and suicidal thoughts have not been granted a war pension and are, therefore, not eligible for specialist psychiatric help.

Benazir Bhutto's last testament

I had become aware, through messages sent by Musharraf, that suicide squads might be sent from the North West Frontier Province and Federally Administered Tribal Areas to try to assassinate me immediately on my return. I had actually received from a sympathetic Muslim foreign government the names and cellphone numbers of designated assassins.

Bin LadenI was told by both the Musharraf regime and the foreign Muslim government that four suicide bomber squads would attempt to kill me. These included, the reports said, squads sent by the Taliban warlord Baitullah Mehsud; Hamza Bin Laden, a son of Osama Bin Laden; Red Mosque militants; and a Kara-chi-based militant group.

Musharraf’s regime knew of the specific threats against me, including the names and numbers of those who planned to kill me, and the names of others – including those in his own inner circle and in his party – whom we believed were conspiring. Despite our request, we received no reports on what actions were taken before my arrival as a follow-up to these warnings.

Mentally disabled women used in bombings in Iraq

Two mentally disabled women strapped with remote-control explosives — and possibly used as unwitting suicide bombers — brought carnage to the two pet bazaars, in attacks Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki said sought to "turn Baghdad back to the pre-surge period."

The so-called American troop surge brought some 30,000 reinforcements to the Iraqi capital and its surrounding belts, helping reduce violence dramatically. Friday's pet market bombings were the city's largest attacks since the buildup began.

"Terrorists have revealed how morally degraded they are...and their hatred of humanity and all Iraqis," al-Maliki said in a statement released by his office Saturday.

Meanwhile, Iraqi forces raided two villages north of the capital on Saturday, killing seven suspected militants and arresting four others, police said. The U.S. military also said its forces killed one suspected militant and detained 13 in two days of raids across northern and central Iraq.

Third undersea Internet cable cut in Mideast

An undersea cable carrying Internet traffic was cut off the Persian Gulf emirate of Dubai, officials said Friday, the third loss of a line carrying Internet and telephone traffic in three days.

Ships have been dispatched to repair two undersea cables damaged on Wednesday off Egypt.

Stephan Beckert, an analyst with TeleGeography, a research company that consults on global Internet issues, said those cable were likely damaged by ships' anchors.

Officials said Friday it was unclear what caused the damage to FLAG's FALCON cable about 50 kilometers off Dubai.

Schoonover said the two cables damaged Wednesday collectively account for as much as three-quarters of the international communications between Europe and the Middle East, so their loss had a much bigger effect.

Worldwide outrage over Afghan sentenced to death for reading article on women's rights. Join the Independent campaign now. 

 The Afghan Senate yesterday backed the death sentence handed to Mr Kambaksh. The motion was proposed by a Senator who is a key ally of President Karzai (pictured)

Afghanistan's President, Hamid Karzai, has been inundated with appeals to save the life of Sayed Pervez Kambaksh, the student journalist sentenced to death after being accused of downloading an internet report on women's rights.

While international protests mounted over the affair, with the British Government saying it had already raised its concerns, hundreds of people marched through the capital, Kabul, demanding Mr Kambaksh's release.

A petition launched yesterday by The Independent to secure justice for Mr Kambaksh had attracted more than 13,500 signatories by last night, and a number of support groups have been set up on the social networking site Facebook with more than 400 joining one group alone.

'Bizarre' new mammal discovered

The bizarre-looking creature, dubbed Rhynochocyon udzungwensis, is a type of giant elephant shrew, or sengi.

The cat-sized animal, which is reported in the Journal of Zoology, looks like a cross between a miniature antelope and a small anteater.

It has a grey face, a long, flexible snout, a bulky, amber body, a jet-black rump and it stands on spindly legs.

"This is one of the most exciting discoveries of my career," said Galen Rathbun, from the California Academy of Sciences, who helped to confirm the animal was new to science along with an international team of colleagues.

Israeli reality TV series 'Survivor' causing ecological damage

Soft sand and coconut palms surround the contestants on Channel 10's "Survivor," the backdrop for the series' intrigues. The calm seas and tropical vegetation make the perfect scenery for the toned participants. Viewers of the hit show are told little about the anonymous island, which is in fact the Los Haitises National Park in the Dominican Republic, a nature reserve in which similar productions have been filmed in recent years for a variety of television channels in countries such as Spain, Argentina and Chile.

Los Haitises is hardly wild and forgotten, but in fact faces serious ecological threats. Behind the reality TV lies the harsh reality of corrupt politicians and warring interested parties. The diverse habitat is the center of a longstanding dispute between the state and local farmers, who were expelled under claims they were harmful to nature and the region's water sources. The farmers, who lived for decades in the park, now live in tin shacks in nearby villages in full view of the area from which they were expelled. Large sections of the reserve have been converted to outdoor recording studios in which various "Survivor" productions from various countries compete, sometimes more than one at a time.
