Italy calls on UK to take responsibility for 141 people rescued by ship sailing under Gibraltar flag

Italy calls on UK to take responsibility for 141 people rescued by ship sailing under Gibraltar flag Italy’s transport minister has called on the UK to take responsibility for 141 people rescued by a ship sailing under the flag of the British territory of Gibraltar. Danilo Toninelli, the transport and infrastructure minister and a senior member of the anti-establishment 5-Star Movement (M5S), said via Twitter on Monday that the rescue was co-ordinated by the Libyan coast guard and the rescue ship was in Maltese waters, sailing under the flag of Gibraltar. “At this point the United Kingdom assumes its responsibility for the safeguarding of the shipwrecks," he said.  A European Commission spokesperson said all diplomatic channels were being employed to find a country willing to take the migrants, who were plucked from wooden boats in two operations 25 nautical miles off the Libyan coast Friday. French charity organisation SOS Mediterranee, which co-operates the ship with Doctors Without Borders, said on Monday they had sailed to a standby point mid-way between Malta and Italy (both countries are refusing to allow the Aquarius to dock) while awaiting Europe to assign a safe port. L'Ong #Aquarius è stata coordinata dalla Guardia Costiera libica in area di loro responsabilità. La nave è ora in acque maltesi e batte bandiera di Gibilterra. A questo punto il Regno Unito si assuma le sue responsabilità per la salvaguardia dei naufraghi.— Danilo Toninelli (@DaniloToninelli) August 13, 2018 Approximately 70 per cent of the migrants are from Somalia and Eritrea, including 67 unaccompanied minors and two pregnant women. They told rescuers five ships passed by them without offering help. Interior Minister and Deputy Premier Matteo Salvini said on Monday the Aquarius can “go where it wants, but not to Italy.” “Aquarius NGO ship with another 141 immigrants on board: German owned, rented by French NGO, foreign crew, in Maltese waters, flying the flag of Gibraltar,” Salvini said via Twitter, adding hashtags #closedports and #openhearts. A migrant child plays with a member of the crew on board the MV Aquarius rescue ship run by SOS Mediterranee organisation and Doctors Without Borders during a search and rescue (SAR) operation in the Mediterranean Sea, off the Libyan Coast, August 12  Credit: GUGLIELMO MANGIAPANE/REUTERS The far-right leader of the League party has initiated a tough stance on migration since taking over as interior minister, essentially closing Italy’s ports to NGO vessels. The same ship was turned away from ports in Italy and Malta in June after rescuing more than 600 migrants, who were eventually taken to Spain. “European governments have put all their efforts into propping up the Libyan Joint Rescue Coordination Center, however Friday’s events show they don’t have the capacity to fully coordinate a rescue,” said Aloys Vimard, MSF’s project coordinator on board the Aquarius. “A rescue is not complete until there is safe disembarkation.”


Erdogan vows action against 'economic terrorists' over lira plunge

"There are economic terrorists on social media," Erdogan told a gathering of Turkish ambassadors at the presidential palace in Ankara, adding that the judiciary and financial authorities were taking action in response.

Turkey lira crisis highlights emerging currencies plight

Turkey lira crisis highlights emerging currencies plight Much of the Turkish lira's plight may be homegrown, but it shares some key vulnerabilities with other emerging countries whose currencies are now also plunging as fear of contagion spreads, analysts say. South Africa, Argentina, Mexico, Brazil and Russia have all seen their currencies slip over the past week because, like Turkey, they remain heavily dependent on foreign capital, especially the dollar. "This is a typical 'flight to quality' move from foreign investors out of emerging markets to safer, developed countries," Agathe Demarais, lead Turkey analyst at the Economist Intelligence Unit, told AFP.

Indonesia quake death toll tops 400 as more bodies recovered The death toll from an earthquake on the Indonesian island of Lombok has topped 400, authorities said Monday, as bodies were still being recovered from the ruins of destroyed buildings. The shallow 6.9-magnitude quake on August 5 levelled tens of thousands of homes, mosques and businesses across Lombok, just a week after another tremor surged through the island and killed 17.

Exclusive: Saudi Arabia's PIF has shown no interest in bankrolling Tesla buyout - sources DUBAI/RIYADH/LONDON (Reuters) - Saudi Arabia's Public Investment Fund (PIF) has shown no interest so far in financing Tesla Inc CEO Elon Musk's proposed $72 billion deal to take the U.S. electric car maker private, despite acquiring a minority stake in the company this year, two sources familiar with the matter said. The 47-year-old investor and engineer stunned financial markets on Tuesday when he said on Twitter that he was considering a take-private deal for Tesla, an auto manufacturing pioneer that developed the world's first luxury all-electric sedan car. Beyond amassing a stake of just below 5 percent in Tesla, the sovereign wealth fund has poured tens of billions of dollars into technology investments, including $45 billion in SoftBank Group Corp's Vision Fund over five years.

California wildfires: Cooler temperatures allow for progress fighting forest blaze

California wildfires: Cooler temperatures allow for progress fighting forest blaze Cooler temperatures have aided firefighters as they begin to turn the tables on a large wildfire that has torn across Southern California. The Holy Fire was 41 per cent contained by Sunday afternoon after burning over 35.5 square miles of dry timber and brush at Cleveland National Forest, around 100 miles southeast of Los Angeles. “The weather out here in California seems to be cooling down today and over the next couple days, and that should hopefully help firefighters get even more containment,” said Lynne Tolmachoff, of the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection.


Counter-protest drowns out small Washington neo-Nazi rally

Counter-protest drowns out small Washington neo-Nazi rally A white supremacist rally outside the White House fizzled out Sunday after only a handful of neo-Nazis showed up and were massively outnumbered by hundreds of counter-protesters. In an effort to avoid a repeat of the chaos of a deadly protest in Charlottesville, Virginia exactly a year ago, Washington police closed streets and threw a ring of steel across a public park to make sure the white supremacists and rowdy counter-protesters did not come into contact. Officers used pepper spray toward the end of the demonstrations, targeting a group of black-clad anti-fascists who scuffled with police a few blocks from the White House, but the day appeared to end without major incident.

Greek cat sanctuary 'overwhelmed' with emails after advertising paid job on idyllic island with 55 felines

Greek cat sanctuary 'overwhelmed' with emails after advertising paid job on idyllic island with 55 felines The job advert on Facebook sounded almost too good to be true. A living wage, a car, a lovely house to live in - bills paid - with a terrace overlooking the Aegean, just a short walk from a pristine beach on the Greek island of Syros. The job? Caring for up to 70 cats amounting to four hours of work per day. Nearly 1,000 Britons applied for the role after the announcement posted by Greek cat sanctuary owner Joan Bowell on Facebook last week went viral. Her inbox is brimming with applications from hopeful cat caretakers convinced they are the “responsible, reliable, honest, practically inclined” person with a heart of gold she is looking for. Veterinarians, doctors, even refugees applied.     “We were doing a quiet thing on a Greek island -  but no more,” Mrs Bowell’s husband, Richard, 65, told The Telegraph. The job involves just four hours work per day Credit: Facebook Mrs Boswell, a Briton, and Mr Boswell, from Denmark, moved to the island of Syros seven years ago.  They found kittens thrown away in garbage cans, bony cats relying on scraps, feral and injured cats that needed care. The couple began taking in strays and working with local veterinarians to improve the health of village cat colony and the overall island population. They backed a sterilisation project, funded dental operations, had sick eyes removed, and nursed motherless kittens through the night. If cat dies, Mrs Bowell buries them and places a stone. “Now you hardly see distressed cats on Syros,” Mr Bowell says. “It all started here.” Sanctuary owners Joan and Richard Bowell have been overwhelmed by the interest in the advert Credit: Facebook Today the sanctuary is home to anywhere from 55-70 cats, all led around by the resident caretaker cat, Snowy. Mrs Bowell founded God’s Little People Cat Rescue charity to support the sanctuary with donations and started a Facebook page. At first her posts got a handful of likes as she tried to find homes for cats on Syros. “Then she posted this, it went viral and people have been phoning from all over the world.”   This fall, the couple plans to return New York, where Mr Bowell has work commitments with the United Nations.  They have drafted five volunteers across Europe to narrow down the 3,000 applications from people offering to take their place – mostly Americans and British nationals – to a pool of 50-100.  The job also comes with a car, bills paid, and a stunning view of the Aegean Credit: Facebook There are those that start out with: “I’ve always wanted to live on a Greek island,” those who boldly proclaim: “I am your person” and those who say: “What is behind this?” and want to know more about the sanctuary’s philosophy.   “Those are the ones that catch our attention,” Mr Bowell said of the latter. “Sometimes whispers are best heard.” The position comes with a salary up to €600 (£536) a month, with bills, housing and veterinary expenses paid, starting November 1, after a voluntary two-week transition period in October.   There are bonus points for veterinarian skills, cat psychology skills for handling feral or non-sociable felines.
