Sudan protester dies after clashes at Darfur sit-in

Westlake Legal Group sudan-protester-dies-after-clashes-at-darfur-sit-in Sudan protester dies after clashes at Darfur sit-in KHARTOUM, Sudan fox-news/world/world-regions/middle-east fox-news/world/world-regions/africa fox-news/world fnc/world fnc Associated Press article a6965353-3673-59e7-9c1a-09d7e15d8898

A Sudanese protester has died after being shot during clashes with security forces at a sit-in in the western Darfur region.

The Sudan Doctors Committee, one of the groups behind nationwide protests that drove President Omar al-Bashir from power last month, says Saad Mohammed Ahmed, 18, was shot Saturday when security forces tried to forcibly disperse a sit-in outside a military facility in Nyala. He died Sunday.

Maj. Gen. Hashim Mahmoud, the governor of south Darfur province, says around 5,000 people marched to the facility from a nearby displaced persons camp, and that security forces used tear gas to try and disperse them.

The government launched a scorched-earth campaign in response to an insurgency in Darfur in the early 2000s. The conflict killed some 300,000 people and displaced 2.7 million.

Campaigning for South Africa’s upcoming election have reached a climax Sunday with mass rallies by the ruling party and one of its most potent challengers.

South Africa’s President Cyril Ramaphosa, promised more jobs and economic growth at the rally for the African National Congress, the party of Nelson Mandela which has governed the country since the end of apartheid in 1994.

“Our young people want jobs and they want them now,” said Ramaphosa, who promised to create new employment. “We know what needs to be done to increase jobs, to grow the economy.”

Ramaphosa was at Johannesburg’s Ellis Park rugby stadium before thousands of ANC supporters wearing bright yellow T-shirts.

On the other side of Johannesburg, in in Soweto, the city’s largest black township, thousands gathered for a competing rally by the Economic Freedom Fighters, a populist, leftist party. Firebrand leader Julius Malema, who split from the ANC, is set to address the rally, despite the death of his grandmother Saturday. Malema has campaigned on vows to expropriate white-owned land without compensation and to nationalize the country’s mines.

Violence escalates in northwest Syria, claiming more lives

Westlake Legal Group og-fox-news Violence escalates in northwest Syria, claiming more lives fox-news/world/world-regions/middle-east fox-news/world fnc/world fnc Damascus (Syria) Associated Press article 6180827b-826e-57a8-ac21-ce0822a878e3

A Syrian military official says insurgents in the country’s northwest are preparing for an attack on government-held areas.

The comments Sunday to state news agency SANA by the unnamed official came as the rebel-held Idlib province and nearby areas are witnessing the worst wave of violence since Russia and Turkey brokered a truce in September.

Syrian opposition activists, including the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights and the Syrian Civil Defense, say Syrian warplanes and artillery have pounded rebel-held areas in Idlib and Hama province.

The Observatory said government shelling has killed at least three people.

Pro-government media said insurgents shelled villages on the opposite side of the front line.

Government troops and insurgents have been reinforcing their positions in recent days.

Italy accuses US man of killing owner of fashion store

Italian authorities are accusing a 22-year-old U.S. citizen of killing a 74-year-old Italian owner of a clothing store in Viterbo, a city near Rome.

Police arrested Michael Aaron Pang on Saturday and allege that he killed the storekeeper by striking him with a stool. The body of Norveo Fedeli was found inside his store Friday.

Police say Pang is a graphic designer from Kansas City who arrived in Italy about two months ago. They allege he changed clothes after killing Fedeli and took the man’s wallet. He allegedly had showed up at the store twice previously seeking to buy designer clothes but his credit card was rejected.

Police say they found Fedeli’s stolen wallet and other evidence linking Pang to the killing at a room he rented in a town near Viterbo.

SKorea says NKorea tested ‘new tactical guided weapon.

South Korea’s military says North Korea fired a “new tactical guided weapon” during live-fire drills on Saturday, but did not confirm whether it was a ballistic missile.

The statement by Seoul’s Joint Chiefs of Staff on Sunday came hours after North Korean state media showed leader Kim Jong Un observing drills of long-range multiple rocket launchers and what appeared to be a short-range missile fired from a launch vehicle.

The JCS says the North also fired 240 millimeter- and 300 millimeter-caliber multiple rocket launchers from a site near the eastern coastal town of Wonsan and that various projectiles flew from 70 to 240 kilometers (44 to 149 miles) before splashing into the sea.

Let’s make a Brexit deal, UK PM May tells Labour opposition

Westlake Legal Group f3b8f1c5-ContentBroker_contentid-ca585798c241456d92b6db6e985e84e6 Let's make a Brexit deal, UK PM May tells Labour opposition London fox-news/world/world-regions/united-kingdom fox-news/world/world-regions/europe fox-news/world fnc/world fnc Associated Press article 5858a997-0ea3-5a74-bbf4-dfe75ffcc8ae

British Prime Minister Theresa May says her Conservative government and the opposition Labour Party have a duty to strike a compromise Brexit agreement to end months of political deadlock over Britain’s exit from the European Union.

Writing in the Mail on Sunday, May told Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn: “Let’s do a deal.”

She said a cross-party compromise was not her first choice, but “we have to find a way to break the deadlock.”

The Conservatives are desperate to move forward after losing hundreds of positions in last week’s local elections. Labour also suffered losses as voters punished both main parties for the Brexit impasse.

But the prospect of the government compromising and accepting Labour’s demand for close economic ties with the EU has infuriated pro-Brexit Conservatives, who are demanding May’s resignation.

UN says it’s accessed key wheat silos in Yemen’s Hodeida

Westlake Legal Group og-fox-news UN says it's accessed key wheat silos in Yemen's Hodeida fox-news/world/world-regions/middle-east fox-news/world fnc/world fnc CAIRO Associated Press article 739c9baa-10c9-554a-a072-b9324ca12bdf

The U.N. food agency says it has regained access to key grain storage silos in the conflict-ridden Yemeni port city of Hodeida for the first time since February.

World Food Program spokesman Herve Verhoosel says a technical team accessed the Red Sea mills facility Sunday, where some 51,000 metric tons of wheat — enough to feed 3.7 million people for a month — had been in storage when the site was rendered inaccessible in September.

Access was blocked by Yemeni rebels, known as Houthis, who prevented the World Food Program from crossing a front line into the government-controlled area where the silos are located.

Forces loyal to the Saudi-backed, internationally recognized government have fought a four-year war against the Houthis that has left millions on the brink of famine.

The Latest: Pope to address Bulgaria’s anti-migrant stance

The Latest on Pope Francis’ trip to Bulgaria (all times local):

10 a.m.

Pope Francis has arrived in Bulgaria, the European Union’s poorest country and one that taken a hard line against migrants.

That stance conflicts with the pontiff’s view that reaching out to vulnerable people is a moral imperative.

On a two-day trip that began Sunday, Francis plans to tour a refugee center and dive into the Vatican’s complicated relations with the Bulgarian Orthodox Church.

Later in the day, Francis is meeting with Prime Minister Boyko Borisov, whose center-right, pro-Brussels coalition government includes three nationalist, anti-migrant parties. The government has called for the closure of EU borders to migrants and sealed off its own frontier to Turkey with a barbed-wire fence.

Bulgaria, which joined the EU in 2007, is the bloc’s poorest country, with the lowest average monthly salary — 575 euros ($645) — and the smallest average monthly pension of 190 euros ($213).

9 a.m.

Pope Francis is heading to Bulgaria, the European Union’s poorest country and one that taken a hard line against migrants, which conflicts with the pontiff’s view that reaching out to vulnerable people is a moral imperative.

Francis is expected to visit a refugee center during his two-day visit starting Sunday, as well as dive into the Vatican’s complicated relations with the Bulgarian Orthodox Church. The trip ends with a daylong stop Tuesday in neighboring North Macedonia, the first by a pope.

Francis starts his Bulgarian trip by meeting with Prime Minister Boyko Borisov, whose center-right, pro-Brussels coalition government includes three nationalist, anti-migrant parties. The government has called for the closure of EU borders to migrants and sealed off its own frontier to Turkey with a barbed-wire fence.

The Argentine pope has made the plight of migrants and refugees a hallmark of his papacy. His visit falls just three weeks before European Parliament elections across the EU’s 28 nations in which nationalist, anti-migrant parties are expected to make a solid showing.
