  • Former Israeli government minister charged with spying for Iran

    Golocal247.com news

    A former Israeli government minister, once imprisoned for trying to smuggle drugs, is back behind bars after being charged with spying for archenemy Iran, the country's internal security agency said Monday. The Shin Bet, the Israeli security agency, said Gonen Segev was extradited from Guinea and arrested upon arrival in Israel last month on suspicion of "committing offenses of assisting the enemy in war and spying against the state of Israel." It said Mr Segev, a former energy minister, acted as an agent for Iranian intelligence and relayed information "connected to the energy market and security sites in Israel including buildings and officials in political and security organizations." Lawyers representing Mr Segev issued a statement that did not reject or accept the accusations, only saying that the indictment "portrays a different picture" than what the Shin Bet says. Mr Segev, who served in the Cabinet under Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin in the mid-1990s, was arrested in 2004 for attempting to smuggle 32,000 Ecstasy tablets from the Netherlands to Israel using an expired diplomatic passport.  Former Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin speaks with former energy minister Gonen Segev Credit: REUTERS/GPO A former doctor whose medical license was revoked, Mr Segev was released from prison in 2007 and had been living in Africa in recent years. The Shin Bet said Mr Segev met with his operators twice in Iran, and also met with Iranian agents in hotels and apartments around the world. Mr Segev was given a "secret communications system to encrypt messages" with his operators. The statement said that Mr Segev maintained connections with Israeli civilians who had ties to the country's security and foreign relations. It said he acted to connect them with Iranian agents who posed as businessmen. Israel and Iran are bitter enemies, and the allegations against Mr Segev are extremely grave. Israel considers Iran to be its biggest threat, citing Iranian calls for Israel's destruction, Iran's support for hostile militant groups like Hezbollah and its development of long-range missiles.

  • Toyota confirms production of 986bhp GR Super Sport

    Golocal247.com news

    Since the Toyota MR2 went out of production in 2007 there hasn't been much evidence of sportiness in the Japanese automaker's lineup beyond the somewhat underpowered GT86, but that's about to change in a big way as it's now been confirmed a production version of the 986 horsepower GR Super Sport is in the pipeline. At the moment we only have images of the concept first shown at the Tokyo Auto Salon in January of this year, but news of a production version was released by Toyota on the eve of the Les Mans 24 hour race. This isn't the first time Toyota has looked at building a production Le Mans racer, because in 1998 the company brought us the GT-One (TS020) Le Mans Prototype where a road-going concept was produced with a view towards building a handful of production models.

  • Grandmother wrestles rabid bobcat in fight to the death

    Golocal247.com news

    A grandmother from Georgia, US, fought off a rabid bobcat with her bare hands, wrestling with it and silently strangling the wild animal as it clawed at her face. DeDe Phillips, 46, was well aware of how dangerous the animals could be.  Bobcats are America’s most numerous wild cat with a population of around a million. “It was either me or the cat and it was going to be the cat that day,” she said.  “They go for your jugular. Because when they can get the vein you’re dead in a couple of minutes.” Ms Phillips was outside her home in Hart County, nearly 110 miles northeast of Atlanta, on June 7. She had just bought a new 4x4, and heard dogs barking as she was affixing a bumper sticker on the vehicle, reading: “Women who behave rarely make history.” A bobcat hunting in the Yellowstone National Park Credit: BBC She had never seen a bobcat near the property before, and took a photo of the big cat - before it lunged at her. “As soon as it took the first step, I was in trouble and I knew it,” she said. The animal jumped at her, claws bared. “It caught me slightly on my face, but I got him before he could do much damage there,” she told her local news site, OnlineAthens.  “I took it straight to the ground and started inching my hands up to its throat. I knew that was the only way I was getting out of this.” Her five-year-old granddaughter was sleeping inside the house, so Ms Phillips, worried shouts and screams might bring the child outside, struggled in silence. “I started praying, don’t let her come to the door,” she said. A photo of the dead bobcat, taken by Ms Phillips' family Credit: WFMZ When finally the bobcat stopped moving, Ms Phillips shouted for her daughter-in-law to call 911 and her son, she told OnlineAthens. Her hands, however, stayed clenched around the bobcat’s motionless neck — Ms Phillips wasn’t sure if the animal was really dead.  “My son stabbed it four or five times, but it never budged so I knew it was completely dead,” she said. The dead bobcat tested positive for rabies and Ms Phillips was taken to the hospital, where she was treated for cuts and gashes, as well as broken fingers.  She also is undergoing treatment with the rabies vaccine.
