Disgraced Prince Andrew attends Buckingham Palace Christmas party

Disgraced Prince Andrew made a surprise appearance at Queen Elizabeth II’s annual Christmas party for royal staff Monday evening, reports said.

The Duke of York, 59, was pictured arriving at Buckingham Palace to join his mother, the Queen, brother Prince Charles and other royals at the bash held for the around 400 staffers, the Sun reported.

The appearance came after Andrew was kicked out of his offices at the palace amid backlash from his train wreck of an interview about his friendship with convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein.

QUEEN ELIZABETH IS HAVING ‘A VERY DIFFICULT TIME BEHIND THE SCENES’ FOLLOWING SCANDALS ROCKING THE PALACE: REPORT

Epstein accuser Virginia Roberts Giuffre claims she was sex-trafficked to the prince three times, starting in 2001 when she was 17. Prince Andrew has denied the allegations.

Andrew announced last month he was stepping away from his royal duties, reportedly after being canned by his mom, who apparently feared the scandal would mar the rest of the clan.

But a royal expert says his attendance at the soiree is proof that members of the royal family are rallying around the scandal-scarred Andrew.

“The fact that Andrew has turned up to this Christmas event at Buckingham Palace today shows that he is being supported by the rest of the royal family,” said Phil Dampier.

“If he had not gone it would have looked terrible – like he was an outcast from his own relatives,” said Dampier. “The Queen in particular will have been anxious to show solidarity with her favorite son.”

The 93-year-old monarch hosts a party to thank her staff each year. Employees are treated to drinks and canapes at the palace during the approximately two-hour event attended by senior royals.

After the royals leave, the celebrations usually continue well into the night at local pubs, according to The Sun.

Andrew left the soiree at around 7:30 p.m. in a dark green Bentley, the Daily Mail reported.

A Palace source told the outlet that since the party isn’t an official public event, it wasn’t unusual for Andrew to attend.

Pervez Musharraf, former president of Pakistan, sentenced to death for treason: report

Westlake Legal Group 111110_otr_mush_full_FNC_111110_17-40 Pervez Musharraf, former president of Pakistan, sentenced to death for treason: report fox-news/world/world-regions/pakistan fox-news/world fox news fnc/world fnc Edmund DeMarche article 75d6b531-33d6-5d14-b92a-3b6d74357079

Pervez Musharraf, Pakistan’s former president who has been living outside the country, was sentenced to death in absentia Tuesday on charges of high treason stemming from his decision to suspend the constitution and detain judges in 2007.

Salman Nadeem, a government law officer, told Reuters that Musharraf was found guilty of Article 6 “for violation of the constitution of Pakistan.”  The three-person court ruled in favor of the sentence 2-1.

Musharraf took power in a 1999 coup but was forced to step down in 2008. The charges have been in place since 2013 and he is currently in Dubai. The BBC reported that he was allowed to leave Pakistan for medical treatment.

The move to suspend the constitution in 2007 backfired and led to widespread protests by the country’s powerful legal community. Eventually, Musharraf was forced to step down and left the country soon after.

Holocaust planner’s grave dug up, Berlin police say

Berlin authorities on Monday said the grave of a high-ranking Nazi official who helped plan the Holocaust has been dug up.

The grave of Reinhard Heydrich was “dug up in the night between Wednesday and Thursday,” a police spokeswoman told AFP.

Police say none of Heydrich’s bones appeared to have been removed, but under German law, tampering with a grave can be prosecuted as “grave defilement,” BBC reported.

Heydrich was the leader of Hitler’s Reich Main Security Office, which oversaw the Gestapo, the Nazi’s secret police.

Though not as well-known as other Nazi figures, Heydrich was renowned for his cruelty – even by Third Reich standards. According to his biographer, Mario Dederichs, Hitler referred to him as “the man with the iron heart.”

ITALY POLICE UNCOVER PLOT TO FORM NEW NAZI PARTY, AUTHORITIES SAY

Heydrich also hosted the Wannsee Conference of 1942, where Nazi leaders discussed the “Final Solution of the Jewish Question.”

During the Nazi occupation of Prague (where Heydrich became known as the “Butcher of Prague”), Heydrich was killed after British-trained Czechoslovak agents attacked his car with an anti-tank mine.

His body was buried in Invalidenfriedhof, Berlin’s military cemetery where it remained untouched for years.

White Helmets rescue group founder died from fall in Istanbul, investigators say

James Le Mesurier, the former British soldier who founded the White Helmets volunteer rescue group that has saved thousands of Syrians caught up in the country’s civil war, died from a fall, Turkish forensic experts said.

Le Mesurier, 48, was found dead in November on a street below his apartment in Istanbul.

State broadcast outlet TRT said Monday that the cause of death was “general body trauma linked to a fall from height,” the BBC reported.

The news agency said Le Mesurier had taken sleeping pills. Another state-run news agency, Anadolu, said Le Mesurier’s wife, Emma Winberg, told police her husband had contemplated suicide.

The CEO of Mayday Rescue, which founded the White Helmets, also known as the Syria Civil Defense, was discovered dead around 4:30 a.m. on Nov. 11.

The White Helmets comprised more than 3,000 volunteers working in opposition-held areas in Syria to help those injured. The group has been credited with saving thousands caught in the middle of attacks between Syrian forces and rebel groups.

In 2016, the group received the Right Livelihood Award in recognition for “outstanding bravery, compassion and humanitarian engagement in rescuing civilians”.

It was also nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize.

The Syrian government, along with Russia and Iran, have accused the White Helmets of aiding terrorist groups, which it has denied.

Baby orangutan drugged by Russian trafficker in Bali being returned to wild

The baby orangutan that was drugged by a Russian trafficker who was attempting to smuggle the animal out of Bali and back to his home country earlier this year will be released back into the wild, according to Monday reports.

Russian national Andrei Zhestkov was arrested at Bali’s Ngurah Rai International Airport in March for attempting to smuggle the 2-year-old orangutan in his suitcase back to Russia.

Officials had found the orangutan asleep in a basket, drugged with allergy pills, after a routine security screening.

Zhestkov, 27, told officials that a friend had bought the protected primate for $3,000 at a Java street market and given it to him, The Guardian reported at the time. He said that his friend – who is also Russian – convinced him he could take the orangutan home to keep as a pet, according to the report.

Authorities also discovered two geckos and five lizards in Zhestkov’s luggage. He was sentenced to a year in prison and fined the equivalent of $714, Kyodo News reported.

Ex-top Japanese official who killed son over fear he ‘might harm others’ sentenced

A former top Japanese bureaucrat arrested over the summer for stabbing his son to death because he feared his reclusive child might be a danger to the public was sentenced to six years in prison on Monday.

Hideaki Kumazawa, 76, was arrested in June on suspicion of killing his 44-year-old son, Eiichiro, after calling the police and admitting to stabbing him in the neck and chest at their home in Tokyo.

Kumazawa, a retired agricultural vice minister and former envoy to the Czech Republic, told cops at the time he “thought my son might harm others” after finding out about an unconnected stabbing rampage two days earlier that resulted in two people dead and 17 wounded, according to Kyodo News.

He later pleaded guilty to the crime during the trial.

“I think it is my duty to pay for the crime and pray that my son can spend a peaceful time in the afterlife,”  Kumazawa said Friday during the closing court session, Kyodo News reported.

During the trial, Judge Tomoyuki Nakayama said the son’s body had more than 30 stab wounds, including some that were very deep, indicating that the killing was not purely self-defense. The son died from massive blood loss.

Prosecutors had sought an eight-year prison term while defense lawyers instead pursued a suspended term, claiming Kumazawa killed the 44-year-old in self-defense after the son’s threat.

His son had a developmental disorder and was routinely violent toward his mother. He was removed from his parents and lived alone in an apartment until he returned home a week before the killing.

The Tokyo District Court said in its ruling that the son resumed his violence as soon as he returned home and threatened to kill his father.

JAPANESE MAN, 71, ARRESTED FOR CALLING PHONE COMPANY 24,000 TIMES TO COMPLAIN, POLICE SAY

In its ruling, the court said that Kumazawa feared his son might harm others as in a case days earlier, when a man described as a social recluse — known in Japan as “hikikomori” — stabbed a number of schoolchildren at a bus stop outside Tokyo, killing two people and wounding 17 others, mostly schoolgirls, before killing himself.

The court ruled that Kumazawa deserved a more lenient six years in prison, taking into consideration his effort to improve his family’s relations with the son, the violence inflicted by his son and the threat of being killed.

The case and the earlier attack in Kawasaki highlighted growing concerns about “hikikomori.”

A government survey in March showed there are an estimated 610,000 “hikikomori” between the ages of 40 to 64 in Japan, mostly men, with many still taken care of by their elderly parents without proper support from the outside.

German railway company corrects Thunberg’s tweet on ‘overcrowded trains’

A German railway company has taken back an apology they made to Greta Thunberg after they realized the climate activist wasn’t schlepping it on the train’s floor but instead was treated “friendly” in first class.

Westlake Legal Group AP19349536602636 German railway company corrects Thunberg's tweet on 'overcrowded trains' New York Post fox-news/world/world-regions/europe fox-news/person/greta-thunberg fnc/world fnc article 88ee9323-9a93-5597-8771-b1bbacd75438

The rail company was responding to an image Thunberg tweeted of herself sitting amid bags and suitcases on the floor of what she called “overcrowded trains through Germany.”

THUNBERG APOLOGIZES FOR ‘AGAINST THE WALL’ REMARK

The company, Deutsche Bahn, initially released a statement that said they “continue working hard on getting more trains, connections and seats.”

They also thanked Thunberg for supporting the company’s battle against climate change and pointed out that the train she used had been running 100 percent on eco-friendly electricity.

But upon reflection, Deutsche Bahn said that Thunberg’s “overcrowded” claims were just hot air.

The rail company claimed that the teenager had a seat in first class between Kassel and Hamburg and that other members of her team were already sitting in first class from Frankfurt onwards.

“It would have been even nicer if you had also reported how friendly and competently our team served you at your seat in first class,” the company added.

Thunberg then claimed that jam-packed trains were actually great and having to sit on the floor wasn’t an issue.

“…this is no problem of course and I never said it was,” she tweeted. “Overcrowded trains is a great sign because it means the demand for train travel is high!”

India grapples with protest violence after government announces non-Muslim citizenship rule

The third day of protests against a new law in India — which would give citizenship to people from neighboring countries fleeing religious persecution unless they are Muslim — turned violent as demonstrators lit buses on fire and fought with police.

In Dehli, three buses went up in flames as police fired tear-gas and struck some demonstrators with batons.

Chinmoy Biswal, a top police official, said six police personnel were hurt in the melee.

INDIA EXPECTED TO PASS LAW APPROVING CITIZENSHIP FOR NEARBY REFUGEES– UNLESS THEY’RE MUSLIM

The citizenship amendment bill would grant Indian nationality to Buddhists, Christians, Hindus, Jains, Parsis and Sikhs who escaped Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan before 2015.

The bill has sparked protests across the country by critics who said it’s discriminatory and violated India’s secular principles. The ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has argued it will give sanctuary to people escaping religious persecution in those nations.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi, a member of the BJP, introduced the bill after his reelection victory earlier this year. The bill passed the upper house of parliament by 125 to 105 after clearing the lower house on Monday.

The protests in the nation’s capital city remained relatively peaceful in the first few days, and student organizers from the Jamia Millia Islamia University blamed outsiders for the violence.

“We have time and again maintained that our protests are peaceful and non-violent,” they said in a statement. “We stand by this approach and condemn any party involved in the violence.”

Still, police used force on student protestors, and 26 injured students were taken to nearby hospitals for treatment, a hospital spokesman told The Associated Press.

“The police beat me mercilessly after pinning me down to the ground. My other friends weren’t spared either,” said Mujeeb Raza, a student who was being treated at the nearby Al-Shifa hospital.

Violent protests immediately broke out, however, in India’s northeastern state of Assam on the border with Bangladesh. Demonstrators there decried the law for a different reason, saying they feared non-Muslim migrants from neighboring Bangladesh would “overrun” them, and the influx would dilute the culture and political power of indigenous tribal people in that region. Protesters burned tires and blocked main roads and railway lines, and the government deployed the army to quell the violence in the state. A curfew was declared and Internet and mobile services blocked in a number of districts to prevent further violence.

The violence in the area around Delhi’s Jamia Nagar, a predominantly Muslim area, forced shops and homeowners to shutter their doors to protestors.

WWII bomb discovery prompts evacuation of 54,000 from southern Italy town

About 54,000 people were ordered to evacuate the southern Italy town of Brindisi on Sunday as experts were called in to defuse a World War II bomb discovered last month at a movie theater that was under renovation, according to a report.

It marked the largest peacetime evacuation in Italy to date, Reuters reported, citing the Milan newspaper Corriere della Sera daily. More than 60 percent of the city’s residents were forced to flee a “red zone” encompassing an about one-mile radius from the site where the bomb was found.

WWII BOMB FORCES 10,000 TO EVACUATE ITALIAN CITY

Authorities believe the undetonated bomb was dropped on the city in 1941 by the British, Reuters reported. It’s about three feet long and contains about 88 pounds of dynamite.

Brindisi sits on the heel of Italy’s boot across the Adriatic Sea from Albania. About 87,800 people live in the city, according to the most recent census data reported in 2017. A train station, two hospitals and a prison were closed due to the operation.

Residents were also ordered to remove their parked cars from the designated “red zone” and turn off their gas supplies before bomb technicians began to the disarming operation, Garda World reported. Details about the evacuation orders were available on the Brandisi Municipality website. Officials expected the operation to end by noon local time.

KATHMANDU, Nepal — A bus carrying Hindu pilgrims drove off a highway and crashed in Nepal on Sunday, killing 14 people and injuring 18, police said.

The pilgrims were returning home after visiting the famed Hindu Kalinchowk Bhagwati temple when the bus veered off the highway about 80 kilometers (50 miles) east of the capital, Kathmandu, police official Prajwal Maharjan said.

Rescuers were able to pull out the injured passengers and take them to nearby hospitals for treatment.

Maharjan said police were investigating the cause of the crash but the roads were slippery because of winter rain. The visibility was also poor due to morning fog..

There was also a possibility of mechanical failure and it appeared the bus was not from the area and the driver might not be familiar with the road conditions.
