judge of Germany’s constitutional court served as head of state a largely ceremonial but influential post from 1994-99 He is best remembered for the phrase “Germany needs a jolt” from his 1997 Berlin speech “Moving into the 21st century” in which he warned that a country scared of change would go under in a globalised world “Everyone is addressed everyone has to make sacrifices everyone has to participate” he implored the nation a year before centre-left chancellor Gerhard Schroeder would take power and implement sweeping social welfare and labour reforms Germany’s current chancellor Angela Merkel praised Herzog as a “patriot” who had served the country in multiple posts and was “plain-spoken unpretentious humorous and quite self-ironic” Herzog who was born in the southern state of Bavaria and grew up under the Nazi regime is also remembered for travelling to Poland as soon as he assumed his post to ask for forgiveness on the 50th anniversary of the 1944 Warsaw uprising The following year half a century after the liberation of the Nazi death camp Auschwitz he attended a Jewish ceremony at the site The World Jewish Congress on Tuesday honoured Herzog as a “great fighter

kilometers (19 miles) east of Mosul Iraq (Source: AP) Top News Iraqi government and Kurdish forces backed by US-led coalition air and ground support launched coordinated military operations early on Monday as the long-awaited fight to wrest the northern city of Mosul from Islamic State fighters got underway Convoys of Iraqi Kurdish and US forces could be seen moving east of Mosul into the early hours of the day Along the front line US-led coalition airstrikes sent plumes of smokes into the air and heavy artillery rounds could be heard Watch What Else Is Making News Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi announced the start of the operations on state television launching the country on its toughest battle since American troops left nearly five years ago Mosul Iraq’s second largest city has been under IS rule for more than two years and is still home to more than a million civilians according to UN estimates “These forces that are liberating you today they have one goal in Mosul which is to get rid of Daesh and to secure your dignity They are there for your sake” al-Abadi said addressing the city’s residents and using the Arabic language acronym for the Islamic State group “God willing we shall win” he added dressed in the uniform of the elite counterterrorism forces and flanked by military commanders The push to retake Mosul will be the biggest military operation in Iraq since American troops left in 2011 and if successful the strongest blow yet to the Islamic State A statement on Al-Abadi’s website pledged the fight for the city would lead to the liberation of all Iraqi territory from the militants this year In Washington Defense Secretary Ash Carter called the launch of the operation to liberate Mosul “a decisive moment in the campaign” to deliver a lasting defeat to IS He said the US and other members of the international coalition stand ready to support Iraqi and Kurdish forces Iraqi forces have been massing around the city in recent days including elite special forces that are expected to lead the charge into the city as well as Kurdish forces Sunni tribal fighters federal police and Shiite militia forces South of Mosul Iraqi military units are based at the sprawling Qayara air base but to the city’s east men are camped out in abandoned homes as the tens of thousands of troops massed around the city have overwhelmed the few military bases in the area Kurdish forces are stationed to the north and east of Mosul a mostly Sunni city that has long been a center of insurgent activity and anti-central government sentiment after the US-led invasion of Iraq in 2003 Iraqi officials have warned that the Mosul operation has been rushed before a political agreement has been set for how the city will be governed after IS Lt Col Amozhgar Taher with Iraq’s Kurdish forces also known as the peshmerga said his men would only move to retake a cluster of mostly Christian and Shabak villages east of Mosul and would not enter the city itself due to their concern for “sectarian sensitivities” “To eliminate the threat we must eliminate (IS) from Mosul” Taher said at a makeshift base in an abandoned house along the frontline some 30 kilometers (19 miles) east of Mosul The city fell to IS fighters during the militants’ June 2014 blitz that left nearly a third of Iraq in the extremists’ hands and plunged the country into its most severe crisis since the US-led invasion After seizing Mosul IS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi visited the city to declare an Islamic caliphate that at one point covered nearly a third of Iraq and Syria But since late last year the militants have suffered battlefield losses in Iraq and their power in the country has largely shrunk to Mosul and small towns in the country’s north and west Mosul is about 360 kilometers (225 miles) northwest of the capital Baghdad The operation to retake Mosul is expected to be the most complex yet for Iraq’s military which has been rebuilding from its humiliating 2014 defeat Lt Gen Stephen Townsend commander of Combined Joint Task Force Operation Inherent Resolve said in a statement that the operation to regain control of Mosul could take “weeks possibly longer” Earlier Iraqi Brig Gen Haider Fadhil told The Associated Press in an interview that more than 25000 troops including paramilitary forces made up of Sunni tribal fighters and Shiite militias will take part in the offensive that will be launched from five directions around the city The role of the Shiite militias has been particularly sensitive as Nineveh where Mosul is located is a majority Sunni province and Shiite militia forces have been accused of carrying out abuses against civilians in other operations in majority Sunni parts of Iraq Fadhil voiced concern about potential action from Turkish troops based in the region of Bashiqa northeast of Mosul Turkey sent troops to the area late last year to train anti-IS fighters there But Baghdad has seen the Turkish presence as a “blatant violation” of Iraqi sovereignty and has demanded the Turkish troops withdraw a call Ankara has ignored Military operations are also predicted to displace 200000 to a million people according to the United Nations Just a few kilometers from the eastern front line rows of empty camps for displaced civilians line the road but aid groups say they only have enough space for some 100000 people “It is the future of Iraq at stake” said Aleksandar Milutinovic the Iraq country director for the International Rescue Committee He stressed that the population of Mosul is not all supporters of IS “they’re just people who had no other opportunity or a place to go” and urged Iraqi forces to “show will and a very serious commitment to protecting civilians and ensuring their wellbeing” In the midst of a deep financial crisis the Iraqi government says it lacks the funds to adequately prepare for the humanitarian fallout of the Mosul fight In some cases commanders say they are encouraging civilians to stay in their homes rather than flee “While we may be celebrating a military victory (after the Mosul operation is complete)” said Falah Mustafa the foreign minister for Iraq’s Kurdish region “we don’t want to have also created a humanitarian catastrophe” For all the latest World News download Indian Express App More Top NewsBy: Reuters | Buenos Aires | Published: August 9 2016 2:43 am UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon (Source: AP) Top News UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon urged Argentina and other large nations to ratify the Paris climate accord at a Buenos Aires conference on Monday and Argentina’s foreign minister said she hoped the country would do so by the end of the year In December 2015 some 195 countries reached an agreement in Paris that obligates states to take concrete measures to curb emissions that contribute to climate change But the pact will not go into force until it is ratified by 55 countries representing 55 percent of global greenhouse emissions As of now only 22 countries have done so many of them small vulnerable island nations that account for a negligible percentage of emissions Ban urged China and the United States the world’s top two greenhouse gas emitters to ratify the deal and also pushed Argentina Latin America’s third largest economy to do the same “When we add up the two countries’ greenhouse gas emissions it comes to almost 40 percent” of global emissions Ban said of the United States and China “So 55 percent may not be difficult to achieve and I urge Argentina to ratify as soon as possible” In response Argentina’s foreign minister Susana Malcorra who is running to replace Ban as UN secretary-general said the accord has already been approved by one chamber of Congress and she hopes Argentina will have it ratified by the next major UN climate summit in December At the event in Buenos Aires Ban also thanked Argentina for a recent commitment to take in 3000 refugees from various

overwhelmingly to preserve President Jimmy Morales’ immunity from prosecution after the attorney general submitted a request to investigate him over suspected financing irregularities during his 2015 election campaign The vote to protect Morales from possible prosecution was lopsided with only 25 of the 158 members of Congress voting to strip Morales’ of his legal protections Presidential immunity can only be lifted with the backing of at least two-thirds of the chamber or 105 members Backers of Morales argued their vote to stop the probe from advancing favored political stability in the Central American nation “Democracy isn’t built by changing the president every two years” said Congressman Raul Romero head of the Fuerza party referring to the corruption cases that led to the 2015 resignation of Morales’ predecessor Otto Perez Molina The vote in Congress was a blow to the UN-backed International Commission against Impunity in Guatemala (CICIG) which was pushing to determine the origin of some $800000 in funds Morales managed as secretary general of the conservative National Convergence Front (FCN) party he led from 2015 to 2016 It was widely believed that those in favor of stripping Morales of his impunity would struggle to win enough support in Congress to green light an eventual prosecution as CICIG is also investigating all the major parties in Guatemala over suspected illegal financing “Members of Congress are making a pact of corrupt officials now that they are afraid of being investigated themselves for illegal electoral financing” said Alvaro Montenegro head of the anti-corruption organization Justicia Ya Morales who has denied any wrongdoing issued a statement late on Monday praising the vote as a sign of the country’s unity and “democratic maturity” of its institutions “I call for an end to the political and ideological confrontations and together we’ll continue to build the Guatemala we all desire” the statement said The congressional vote reversed the recommendation of a Guatemalan congressional committee on Sunday that Morales’ immunity be revoked Last month Guatemala’s attorney general and CICIG jointly sought to investigate Morales a former comedian over the illegal financing allegation Two days later Morales declared the head of the UN body “persona non grata” Under the leadership of Ivan Velasquez a veteran Colombian prosecutor CICIG has caused problems for Morales first investigating his son and brother and then training its sights on him The Guatemalan president won office in 2015 running on a platform
