AFL Rotates Troops in Mali

first_imgIf all goes well in line with plans by authorities at the Ministry of National Defense by collaborating with the United Nations Mission in Liberia (UNMIL), the platoon-size unit of the Armed Forces of Liberia (AFL) stationed in Mali will be rotated by another batch of soldiers in a week’s time.Defense Minister Brownie J. Samukai, Jr., made the disclosure Tuesday, June 17, at the Ministry’s Barclay Training Center (BTC) offices on UN Drive when visiting Bangladeshi six-man senior military personnel headed by Lieutenant/General Md Mainul Islam, paid a courtesy call on him.Lt/Gen Islam is the Chief of General Defense Staff at the Bangladeshi Army Headquarters, General Staff Branch—Dhaka Cantonment.He visited the Ministry of Defense while on his way to La Côte d’Ivoire to inspect and visit his country’s troop on peacekeeping mission in that country.Like the AFL, Bangladesh has battalion-size soldiers also stationed in northern Mali serving with AFRISMA.Other members of Lt/Gen Islam’s delegation that accompanied him to the MOD included Colonel Mahmood Houssain, Force Chief of Engineer, Colonel Md Omar Farugue, Lt/Col Md Asadul Islam, Engineers, Lt/C Mahammad Khaled Kamal, and Major Muntasir Mamu, Engineers.Earlier, Minister Samukai and Lt/Gen Islam discussed issues that would be of mutual benefit to the AFL, particularly in the areas of training—with emphasis in peacekeeping and road maintenance.Lt/Gen Islam then assured Minister Samukai of his country’s willingness to assist Liberia in building the capacity of the army where soldiers from the Bangladeshi Military Engineering Division will come to construct a medical factory under the auspices of the AFL Command as well as other projects.The Bangladeshi delegation then presented several pieces of gift items to Minister Samukai and his office staff as tokens of Bangladeshi’s appreciation for the ‘invaluable services’ to the men and women in the Liberian army.  Peace MissionFor the first time in the history of the AFL, it was just last year when their platoon-size unit was deployed in the troubled West African State of Mali and formed part of the Africa International Support Mission in Mali (AFISMA).The soldiers (all infantry) departed Liberia on June 20 last year and joined AFISMA.They are embedded into the Nigerian battalion with First Lieutenant Nathaniel Waka serving as Commander of the platoon-size unit.The exercise, which is the first time that Liberia is participating in 52 years, was honored a forth night ago when they participated in a UN Medal Parade.In 1961, Liberia provided troops to the United Nations Organization in the Congo, a UN peacekeeping force established under UN Security Council Resolution 143 of July 14, 1960, to respond to the Congo crisis.The Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) organized a military mission, AFISMA, to support the Government of Mali against Islamist rebels in the north. The mission was organized under UN Security Council Resolution 2085, adopted on December 20, 2012, authorizing the deployment of an African-led International Support Mission in Mali for an initial period of one year.It is now being extended for another year, thus making it important for the troop to rotate.The intention of the Mission is to help the Malian authorities to implement the transitional roadmap towards the full restoration of constitutional order, democratic governance and national unity.The Bangladeshi ArmyThe army in 1988 was divided into six strategically located divisions. The location of these divisions’ headquarters, five of which were formerly brigade headquarters, underscored the army’s primary mission of internal security rather than defense against external threats.As of 2009, it was reported that the Army consisted of 12 divisions. They were then deployed to support the Army’s primary internal security mission, of which the country designed robust action of peacekeeping—exercise that the Bangladesh Army has earned a reputation around the world.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Another Lusignan escapee recaptured

first_imgEscapees manhunt… 4 more in total still on the runOf the 13 prisoners who escaped from the Lusignan Prison on Monday last, another was early Monday morning recaptured in Mocha Arcadia, East Bank Demerara (EBD), bringing the number of total recaptured prisoners to 12.Twenty-nine-year-old Shawn Harris was captured around 07:20h by Joint Services ranks.According to reports, the convicted robber was hiding in the bottom flat of a two-storey house.Ranks reportedly swooped down on the premises and captured the escapee without incident.However, a couple occupying the upper flat of the building was detained by Police for questioning regarding the harbouring of the man.Harris, originally of Lot 131 Pike Street, Kitty, was charged along with three others for the 2016 robbery of the Bank of Baroda branch at Mon Repos, East Coast Demerara (ECD).Recaptured: Shawn HarrisIt was alleged that on January 22, 2016 ,at Mon Repos, being armed with a gun and in the company of others, Harris robbed Bank of Baroda tellers Raywantie Lall and Latchmie Mohabir of $2.75 million; and Shirley Lucas, a female security guard, of her .32 Taurus revolver, property of RK Security Service.At the time of that charge, he had just finished serving time in prison for a drug possession related charge.On Sunday evening, 29-year-old Clive Forde, also called “El Sinkie”, was shot and killed after members of the Joint Services received information about the fugitive’s whereabouts.Upon their arrival at the East Ruimveldt house, the wanted man attempted to flee while opening fire on the lawmen. In retaliation, the Joint Services ranks returned fire thus mortally wounding the man.A 9mm pistol with five live rounds of ammunition was recovered a short distance away from where the escapee’s body fell.Reports are that a male resident of the area was said to be harbouring the criminal. However, the Police was yet to reveal if anyone was detained in this regard.Meanwhile, another escapee, this time from the Camp Street penitentiary, was arrested by Joint Services ranks in Hampshire, Corentyne, Berbice, on Saturday evening.Murder accused Stafrei Hopkinson Alexander was apprehended after a special operation was launched in the Police B Division with support from the Police Headquarters.At the time of his arrest, Alexander was said to be receiving medical attention for an existing wound from a medical institution which was not named. He was immediately transported to Georgetown and was due to make his court appearance on Monday.Further, Kerry Cromwell, another of the 13 who escaped from the Lusignan Prison on July 24, surrendered himself to the Police on Sunday evening.According to reports, Cromwell’s mother contacted a senior Government functionary and revealed her son’s whereabouts.She told the official that the escapee was willing to turn himself in to the Police. The woman, along with other relatives, took Cromwell to the Brickdam Police Station, where he was rearrested. He also is expected to be charged for escaping from lawful custody.To date, 12 of those who escaped from the Lusignan Prison have been recaptured with the exception of Paul Goriah.And three of those who escaped from the Camp Street Prison are still on the run and are considered armed and dangerous.They are Uree Varswyck, Mark Royden Durant, also known as Royden Williams, and Cobena Stephens, also known as OJ.last_img read more

Besiktas 1-0 Liverpool (agg 1-1): Reds dumped out of Europa League after drama from the spot

first_imgLiverpool were dumped out of the Europa League after suffering a 5-4 penalty defeat to Besiktas at Ataturk Stadium.The Reds returned to the venue that staged their historic fifth European Cup triumph in 2005, but had no such luck from the spot this time around as Dejan Lovren missed the all-important penalty, sending the Turkish club through to the last-16.The visitors looked too strong during a dominant first half, but Tolgay Arslan’s stunning strike turned the tie on its head as the home side won the match on the night, levelling the tie at 1-1 on aggregate, before Slaven Bilic’s side advanced.However, Liverpool made a brighter start with Mario Balotelli involved in their first meaningful chance when he teed up Raheem Sterling on the edge of the box, but the 20-year-old’s driven effort was comfortably parried by Cenk Gonen.Sterling, who occupied a free role in Rodgers’ line-up, then dazzled the Besiktas defence with a snappy run into the area but, with only Daniel Sturridge for company, the former Queens Park Rangers youngster was unable to pick out a red shirt in a promising position.Liverpool continued to press and went close five minutes later as Alberto Moreno, one of three changes from the Merseysiders’ 2-0 win against Southampton on Sunday, sprayed the ball to Sturridge, who sent a low cross toward Sterling but a skewed effort let the hosts off the hook.Sturridge was then guilty of wasting an excellent opportunity for Rodgers’ side as he failed to get the ball out of his feet when presented with a chance from 12 yards out, before Simon Mignolet was forced into his first save from Olcay Sahan’s rasping effort.And the Belgian shot-stopper was called into action after the restart as the home side adopted a more attacking approach, with Serdar Kurtulus and Jose Sosa testing the 26-year-old from range.The lively Gokhan Tore showcased his talent with a mazy run from the left and sent a dipping effort whistling over the crossbar, before Kolo Toure was forced into a vital interception to spare the blushes of Lovren.Substitute Arslan sent Liverpool a warning with a thunderous strike from 30 yards with Mignolet all but beaten, but the Reds failed to take note as the 24-year-old smashed the ball into the top corner on 72 minutes.Both sides then traded attacks knowing a goal would send them through, but neither could fashion a clear opportunity to snatch a late winner.That was until Demba Ba was presented with the ball inside the six yard box deep in stoppage-time, however, the former Chelsea striker was left with his head in his hands after smashing the ball into the crossbar.With the match entering extra-time Besiktas were in the ascendency; Daniel Opare’s 20 yard effort a sign of their growing confidence while Ba continued to pose a threat inside the Liverpool box, prompting Mignolet into a fine save.However, as extra-time came and went with few attempts at goal, Liverpool’s participation in the competition was over when Lovren sent his penalty high and wide.

PCC’s Movsisyan has MLS hooked

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGift Box shows no rust in San Antonio Stakes win at Santa AnitaMLS officials think so highly of the 6-foot, 180-pounder that they signed him to a contract last week along with Maryland forward Jason Garey, winner of the M.A.C. Hermann Trophy as the top Division I college player in the country; Indiana midfielder Brian Plotkin; and Santa Clara midfielder Mehdi Ballouchy. Now it’s just a matter of waiting to find out which club selects him in the draft, which will be held in Philadelphia at 9 a.m. Also working in Movsisyan’s favor is that he will take up a youth international spot on an MLS roster and not count against a club’s salary cap. Movsisyan, who was born in Baku, Azerbaijan and came to the U.S. about five years ago, said it doesn’t matter where he winds up later this week. But he did admit he would love to play in Southern California. “Of course, I want to stay here in L.A., Galaxy or Chivas,” he said. “I’m a fan of soccer. It doesn’t matter for me … either team would be good. Any team that takes me, I’m ready to go and give it my all.” His coach at PCC and in high school, Cherif Zein, said Movsisyan is one of the best prospects he’s seen in his 30 years in the sport. “Mentally, he’s very focused despite his age,” Zein said. One of a number of players looking to advance his draft prospects at the combine was Princeton defender/midfielder Darren Spicer, a former standout at Diamond Bar High School. The 5-foot-11, 170-pounder led Princeton in scoring in three consecutive years (2003-2005) and was a first-team All-Ivy League selection the last two seasons. The 22-year-old majored in international politics and jokingly was asked if he wants to become a world ruler some day. “I want to be a professional soccer player first,” he answered with a grin. Spicer, who was invited to participate in the combine about a month ago, worked out with Chivas USA almost two weeks ago and said he thought the sessions went well. He hoped his performances over the weekend strengthened his chances to be selected. larry.morgan@sgvn.com.

You’re all set! “I like him, I like him a lot,” Galaxy coach Steve Sampson said. The team owns five picks, including the 12th, and final, choice in the first round on Friday. “We’d obviously like to have him stick around (in the draft). Athletically, I think he can compete at this level, and he’s far from reaching the peak of his athleticism. “We know he’s a top prospect, and deservedly so.” center_img CARSON – Almost 75 players took part in last week’s Major League Soccer Player Combine at Home Depot Center. Prospects ranged from UCLA defender Marvell Wynne, rumored to be the No. 1 pick overall by Chivas USA in Friday’s MLS SuperDraft, to 16-year-old forward Josmer Altidore, a member of the United States’ U-17 team that advanced to the quarterfinals of last year’s FIFA U-17 World Championship in Peru. There also was Pasadena City College’s Yura Movsisyan, who may not be as well-known as some of his peers nationally but has drawn enthusiastic responses from various coaches who praise his ability despite his age (18) and lack of experience (Arcadia High School and one year at PCC). Galaxy and Chivas USA coaches have thought enough about him to bring him in for recent workouts. He also has been contacted by officials with the Columbus Crew, Chicago Fire and New England Revolution and figures to be a high pick. last_img read more

LOAN TO HELP BUILD DONEGAL WASTE PLANT IS FAR FROM ‘CHICKEN FEED’

first_imgStormont will loan more than €10m for the construction of a digester plant in Ballybofey.The Northern Ireland government is to loan £9.3m towards the cost of a plant in Co Donegal to help deal with waste from Northern Ireland’s poultry industry.The anaerobic digester is being built near Ballybofey and will treat 25,000 tonnes every year.Biogas produced will be sent to Northern Ireland to help heat and power factories owned by manufacturing companies Bombardier and Montupet. The BBC reports today that the Northern Ireland Executive loan covers 40% of the £23m capital cost.The by-product from the process, called digestate, will be spread in forestry and on land near the plant.The agri-food industry said the absence of a long-term solution to the poultry waste problem threatened “the sector’s viability”.About 6,000 people work in the poultry meat sector in Northern Ireland and it is a major contributor to the economy. But finding a solution to the 270,000 tonnes of waste it produces a year has been a headache.Some of it is spread as fertiliser on fields, but it is high in phosphorous and Northern Ireland already has phosphorous-rich soils.The by-product from the process, called digestate, will be spread in forestry and on land near the plant.That means there is a danger that additional land spreading could lead to excess phosphorous running off into rivers or lakes and causing damage.The European Union has rules against that, which Northern Ireland must comply with. That is one of the reasons why the treatment plant is being built in the Republic of Ireland.The soil where the digestate will be spread has lower levels of phosphorous and can cope with the additional nutrients.The plant at Ballybofey already has planning permission and is licensed by the Republic of Ireland’s Environmental Protection Agency.Built by Williams Industrial Services, specialists from Mallusk in County Antrim, it is expected to be operational by March 2017.

COUNTY ATHLETICS CHAMPIONSHIPS RESULTS: RUAIRI BACK ON TRACK WITH EUROPEAN TIME

first_imgBY BRENDAN O’DONNELL: Letterkenny AC’s Ruairi Finnegan was the star performer at Saturday’s Donegal Track and Field Championships held in Lifford.In his first race back on the track after a six month lay off through injury, Finnegan ran an excellent 3.50.34 in the 1500m, inside the B standard for the forthcoming European Juniors to be held in Italy in July. The leaving cert student has certainly set down a mark for the season with much more to come.This was the first Donegal Championships held at the Lifford venue for over 15 years. With a new Mondo track in Lifford, the same as the fast track at last years London Olympics, quick times were expected. Prior to Finnegans European standard, City of Derry’s Conor Bradley ran an impressive 1.53.48 in the 800m. Lifford AC’s Ann Marie McGlynn won the Senior 1500m in 4.30.76, with Galway City Harrier athlete Alanna Lally blazing a trail in the 400m with a 57.68s run.Other impressive performances on the day included Rosses athlete Derek Gillespie taking the senior high jump with a leap of 1.80m and Finn Valleys John Kelly throwing the shot out to 17.35m. Veterans of Donegal Championships Hugh Gallagher from Milford and Killybegs native Bernie O’Callaghan collected golds in the shot and 1500m walk respectively.A juvenile programme from U12 upwards also saw a number of fine performances from Donegal athletes.The Black twins from Cranford collected medals in the sprints, distance and long jump, Lifford AC’s Charlie McElwaine pipped Letterkenny’s Ben Carr in the U14 1500m, one of the races of the day, while Finn Valley’s Lauren Callaghan and Janine Boyle claimed gold both in the sprint and long jump. All in all, this was a fine days athletics to bring down the curtain on the Donegal Championships for 2013. With over 200 athletes mid week in Letterkenny and nearly 150 athletes in Lifford on Saturday, this was a very successful Donegal Championships in 2013.A big thank you to all the officials that ensured the full programme ran off successfully and on time. Thanks to Paul and Georgina Drumm for their expertise in bringing electronic timing to Donegal yet again. Thanks to all the clubs and athletes both within Donegal and further afield who turned out to support the Championships.On a personal note, I’d like to thank everyone from our own Lifford club who worked tirelessly over the past number of weeks to ensure everything was right for the hosting of these Championships in the town. There was a huge amount of work done in a voluntary capacity which was a credit to all involved. Unfortunately some things were outside of our control including the line marking of the track which we had expected to be done in advance of these Championships. If we had the expertise within the area it would have been done.Nevertheless, we did have all relevant start lines and break marks surveyed and marked to ensure any records or standards could be stood over.Good luck to all our athletes athletes whose next steps will be Ulster T&F, Schools and All Ireland competitions in the weeks ahead.

McGonagle thanked the band members, their parents and dedicated backroom team, he added, “The band trained every Tuesday all year but this week they trained 4 days for a total of 12 hrs to perfect their routine.Mayor Patricia Callaghan also congratulated the band and said they were a credit to the town and their families.Councillor Tom Conaghan, (a former All Ireland U21 manager himself) acknowledged the huge effort it takes to win one much less three All Irelands.One of the founding members of the reformed band Pauric Kennedy had the memory of his late father Peter’s in mind when he said, “Dad founded the original band and he would be so proud to see the success this band has achieved here today bringing three national titles home to a small town like Donegal. Liam Conneely, the band’s bus driver was singled out for special mention,”For his care and courtesy way and beyond the call of durty.Ernan McGettigan was his usual competent MC and Jonathan Kennedy organised the Reception lorry and PA, with one hand literally (he broke his arm last week!)PICTURE SPECIAL – DONEGAL TOWN COMMUNITY BAND CROWNED ALL-IRELAND CHAMPIONS was last modified: August 18th, 2014 by Mark ForkerShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:all-irelandDonegal TownFeaturesFleadh Ceoilnewssligolast_img read more
