Al-Qaida group claims killing 18 in rape retaliation

first_imgBAGHDAD, Iraq – An al-Qaida-affiliated group said Saturday it killed 18 kidnapped government security forces in retaliation for the alleged rape of a Sunni woman by members of the Shiite-dominated police, posting an online video of the officers being shot in the back of their heads while kneeling in a field. The authenticity of the three-minute video, posted on a Web site previously used by the Islamic State of Iraq, could not be immediately verified. The group also said it had killed 14 policemen, whose bodies were found Friday in the northeast province of Diyala, in retaliation for the alleged rape. Some of the victims were decapitated, according to an Associated Press photographer. Meanwhile, gunmen rounded up two Sunni families that had received death threats for joining U.S.-organized talks with local Shiites, hauling away the men and boys and killing all six Saturday as suspected insurgents expanded a campaign of fear against opponents. U.S. forces also reported airstrikes and raids on what it called Sunni militant bases linked to al-Qaida in Iraq. A recent wave of Sunni reprisals appears linked to increasingly high-profile attempts to stir popular momentum against Sunni extremists trying to drive out the Shiite-led government and its American backers. Among those targeted include a range of Sunnis raising their voices against violence: imams, clan-based vigilantes and activists trying to bridge deep rifts with majority Shiites. The execution video released Saturday first depicts the 18 men, some in Iraqi military uniforms, blindfolded, hands tied behind their backs and lined up in three rows before a screen. The men in the front row are kneeling. Armed masked men were seen pointing machine guns at the captives. Two masked militants, with checkered scarves on their heads, then fire from handguns at close range into the backs of the men’s heads, while a third militant carries a black banner ahead of them. As they are shot, the victims fall, head forward to the ground. The shooting is accompanied by chants of “Allahu Akbar,” or “God is the Greatest.” Male voices chant repeatedly in Arabic during the video: “At your service, sister” – a likely reference to the revenge for the allegedly raped Sunni woman. Another male voice is heard reading from the Islamic State of Iraq’s statement posted on the same Web site Friday, saying the group’s court had ordered the 18 security troops executed because Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki’s government had failed to meet the group’s demands to hand over the officers who allegedly assaulted the Sunni woman in Baghdad last month, and to release all Sunni women detainees from Iraqi prisons. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Bickford fire lookout in Chetwynd undergoes restoration

first_imgThere are still plans for additional work early next year, including installing laminate flooring and painting the lower level walls and ceiling. The Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations chose this lookout for restoration last year, due to its “location, accessibility, community use and partnership interest.” “The restoration of the Bickford fire lookout will bring added tourism and recreation opportunities to the region,” says Peace River South MLA Mike Bernier. “Local businesses will also benefit from added revenue as visitors and tourists come into to town to eat, sleep and shop.” – Advertisement -The site will be maintained by Recreation Sites and Trails B.C., who contributed $10,000 to the project. Glenmore Coal Mining matched that contribution, and the Chetwynd Outdoors Society and Buffalo Aerial Helicopter Services also assisted in the restoration. The Bickford lookout is one of 320 fire lookout locations in B.C., of which 20 are considered active and required by the Wildfire Management Branch.Advertisementlast_img read more

Thomas’ clutch jumper leads Clippers by Kings

first_imgFrom news services Tim Thomas hit a tiebreaking 16-foot jumper with 12.9 seconds left to help the Clippers beat the Sacramento Kings, 92-90, Wednesday night in an exhibition game at Staples Center. Thomas was back in the lineup after missing two games because of a family emergency in New Jersey, but Corey Maggette sat this one out due to a bruised tailbone and Aaron Williams was sidelined by a right calf strain. Chris Kaman led the Clippers with 19 points and nine rebounds.

Heat deal Walker Antoine Walker’s turbulent time with the Miami Heat is over. Miami traded the three-time All-Star forward to the Minnesota Timberwolves in a five-player deal that came one day after Miami completed a winless preseason. Walker, backup center Michael Doleac, oft-injured forward Wayne Simien and a conditional first-round draft pick were sent to Minnesota for former Miami swingman Ricky Davis and center Mark Blount. The deal gives Miami the third scoring option it wanted in Davis. The Heat will try to fit him in alongside Shaquille O’Neal and Dwyane Wade – who’ll miss a few more weeks while recovering from knee and shoulder surgeries. Walker helped the Heat win the 2006 NBA title but his weight bothered Coach Pat Riley. Around the league Mavericks: Forward Josh Howard is out with a sprained left wrist and will be re-evaluated next week. Howard will miss the first two games of the regular season anyway because of his suspension for an altercation with Sacramento center Brad Miller.
