  • All hail Roy Moore at 'pro-family' rally, while accusations pile up

    Golocal247.com news

    A “pro-family” rally in Birmingham, Ala., featured tributes to embattled Senate candidate Roy Moore by a parade of supporters — including one with a stalking conviction and one who has blamed Hurricane Sandy on gay marriage – but no comments from Moore himself on the latest accusations against him. After two hours of speeches, Moore gave a brief address before the host invited questions on “issues” from the assembled press. The first question was if Moore had ever touched young women without their consent and if he dated teenagers when he was in his 30s.

  • Syria troops, allies retake most of last IS-held town: monitor

    Golocal247.com news

Syria's army and Lebanese, Iranian and Iraqi loyalists re-entered Albu Kamal two days ago and by Saturday had taken most of it from IS, said the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

  • Lebanon's Saad al-Hariri leaves Saudi Arabia for France

    Golocal247.com news

    Saad al-Hariri, who sparked a crisis by resigning as Lebanese prime minister on November 4 during a visit to Saudi Arabia, left Riyadh late last night on a flight bound for Paris, a television channel owned by his family said "Mr Hariri left Riyadh airport on his private jet with his wife and is headed for Le Bourget airport", north-east of Paris, announced Future TV around 1:20 am (2320 GMT). A source close to Mr Hariri confirmed the departure of the former prime minister to AFP, adding that the flight would take six and a half hours. Earlier Mr Hariri had tweeted he was on his way to the airport in the Saudi capital, refuting the suggestion he had been not allowed to leave the country. His visit to France with his family to meet President Emmanuel Macron is seen as part of a possible way out of the crisis. Michel Aoun, the Lebanese president, had accused Saudi authorities of "detaining" Mr Hariri and refused to accept his resignation from abroad. Mr Hariri, a dual Saudi citizen, has been in Riyadh since issuing a statement on television there on November 4 that he was stepping down because he feared for his life while also accusing Iran and its Lebanese ally Hezbollah of destabilising his nation. Mr Macron, speaking in Sweden, said Hariri "intends to return to his country in the coming days, weeks". The French president will meet Mr Hariri at noon Paris time today (Saturday). The crisis has thrust Lebanon into the bitter rivalry pitting Saudi Arabia and its allies against a bloc led by Iran, which includes the heavily armed Lebanese Shi'ite Hezbollah group. In Lebanon, Mr Hariri has long been an ally of Riyadh. His coalition government, formed in a political deal last year to end years of paralysis, includes Hizbollah. President Michel Aoun, a political ally of Hizbollah, has called Mr Hariri a Saudi hostage and refused to accept his resignation unless he returns to Lebanon. Saudi Arabia and Mr Hariri say his movements were not restricted. Lebanese politicians from across the political spectrum have called for Mr Hariri to return to the country, saying it is necessary to resolve the crisis. Foreign Minister Gebran Bassil, who heads President Aoun's political party, said on Thursday Beirut could escalate the crisis if Mr Hariri did not return home. "We have adopted self-restraint so far to arrive at this result so that we don't head towards diplomatic escalation and the other measures available to us," he said during a European tour aimed at building pressure for a solution to the crisis. Saudi Arabia regards Hizbollah as a conduit for Iranian interference across the Middle East, particularly in Syria, Yemen and Bahrain. It says it has no problem with Hizbollah remaining a purely political party, but has demanded it surrender its arms, which the group says are needed to defend Lebanon.

  • Dog 'dies of a broken heart' after being dumped at airport by her owner 

    Golocal247.com news

    A dog who  was abandoned by her owner at an airport has died of a "broken heart". The dog, called "Nube Viajera'' or Wandering Cloud by the vets who treated her,  spent a month wandering around the terminal at Palonegro airport near Bucaramanga, Colombia hoping to be reunited with her owner. According to witnesses, she sniffed people at the airport before giving up the search and lying listlessly in a corner of the terminal. Nube viajera  Credit: CEN Both passengers and workers offered the dog, who was no more than two years old, food - but she refused to eat. "It is presumed that she had an owner and a home and that they abandoned her because the dog never left the airport," Dr Alejandro Sotomonte told Noticias RCN. Clearly malnourished she was taken to a shelter after somebody alerted an animal rescue group, the Mirror reported. By then the once healthy dog was so weak she was barely able to stand. According to vets despite being given food and medicine via intravenous injection, the dog's health deteriorated further into sadness and depression before dying.
