Syrian opposition activists and other witnesses tell The Associated Press that Syrian government forces have attacked rebel-held areas with poisonous chlorine gas in recent months. They say the attacks left scores of men, women and children coughing, choking and gasping for breath. The reports have been denied by the Syrian government and have yet to be confirmed by any foreign country or international organization. But if true, they highlight the limitations of the global effort to rid Syria of its chemical weapons. (AP Photo/Shaam News Network) BEIRUT (AP) — Syrian government forces have attacked rebel-held areas with poisonous chlorine gas in recent weeks and months, leaving men, women and children coughing, choking and gasping for breath, according to Associated Press interviews with more than a dozen activists, medics and residents on the opposition side.


Russia hints at armed 'response' if Ukraine interests attacked

A pro-Russian armed man stands guard near the state security service building in Slaviansk Slavyansk (Ukraine) (AFP) - Russia issued a sharp warning on Wednesday that it will strike back if its "legitimate interests" in Ukraine are attacked, raising the stakes in the Cold War-like duel with the United States over the former Soviet republic's future. Both the government and Russia's powerful Gazprom company also made strident noises over Ukraine's unpaid debt for Russian gas, estimated at $3.5 billion (2.5 billion euros). Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov told state-controlled RT television that if Russia or its interests are attacked, "we would certainly respond". "If our interests, our legitimate interests, the interests of Russians have been attacked directly, like they were in South Ossetia for example, I do not see any other way but to respond in accordance with international law," he said, referring to Russia's armoured invasion of Georgia in 2008.

'Murdered' Ukraine politician faced hostile mob, video shows

Photos of the day - February 21, 2014 The Ukrainian town councilor whose apparent torture and murder helped to prompt a threatened new government offensive in the east was mobbed by a hostile, pro-Russian crowd before he disappeared, a video of the incident shows. The apparent murder of Volodymyr Rybak and a second man prompted the European Union to call on Russia to use its influence to stop kidnappings and killings in mainly Russian-speaking eastern Ukraine, scene of separatist rebellions against Kiev's leaders. The footage from April 17 on local news site gorlovka.ua shows angry scenes outside the town hall of Horlivka, between the separatist flashpoint cities of Donetsk and Slaviansk, as Rybak is manhandled by several men, among them a masked man in camouflage, while other people hurl abuse. Ukraine's interior ministry said he was seen being bundled into a car by masked men in camouflage later that day.

Life after Heartbleed: ‘The Internet will never be 100% safe’

Life after Heartbleed: ‘The Internet will never be 100% safe’ Heartbleed was an abrupt but necessary reminder that when it comes to the Internet, nothing is safe. The massive OpenSSL security hole was discovered earlier this month, and it affected 66% of the entire Internet at the time of its discovery. Most large websites have patched the bug by now and Heartbleed chatter across the Web is inevitably starting to die down. But as one security expert recently pointed out, patching Heartbleed hardly makes the Internet safe again. “In the wake of the HeartBleed vulnerability, many organizations and hosting providers have lulled themselves into a false sense of security by relying on Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS) to automatically deal with HeartBleed attacks,” Halon Security CEO Jonas Falck said recently. “IDS

(AP Photo/Carolyn Kaster) But for two special guests at Sukiyabashi Jiro on Wednesday evening, mouthfuls of melt-in-the-mouth tuna, squid, and octopus were the culinary backdrop to discussing urgent matters of regional security. Soon after Air Force One touched down here, Barack Obama found himself in Tokyo’s upmarket Ginza district, tucked behind the counter of arguably the world’s best sushi restaurant with his Japanese host, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. Sukiyabashi Jiro’s modest size – it has just 10 seats – is inversely proportionate to its reputation. The 19-piece special course, featuring a selection chosen by owner Jiro Ono, costs around $300, not including drinks.
