Iranian TV shows off ´captured
US ScanEagle drone´

BBC [UK], by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 12/4/2012 5:28:27 PM

Iranian state television has shown images of what it says is an unmanned US drone captured in its airspace. The Revolutionary Guards said they had brought down a ScanEagle - one of the smaller, less sophisticated drones employed by the Americans. Rear Admiral Ali Fadavi told the Fars news agency that the drone had conducted several reconnaissance flights over the Gulf in recent days. But the US Navy said none of its drones was missing in the Middle East. Other nations in the region, including the United Arab Emirates, also operate ScanEagles--low-cost, long-endurance aircraft with a 10ft (3m) wingspan

Michelle Obama arrived in China on Thursday for a weeklong visit that will steer clear of politics and instead focusing on education and community. [Snip] On Friday, she is to spend the day with Peng Liyuan, the wife of Chinese President Xi Jinping, something which diplomats hope will build bridges between the two countries. ´I think this is a very good opportunity to improve the China-U.S. relations, as the first lady can represent the soft side of diplomacy,´ said Wang Dong, a political scientist at Peking University´s School of International Studies. ´Michelle Obama herself has been accomplished in areas such as

She’s one of the world’s most glamorous First Ladies, a star in her own right, and a supportive, caring wife to a super-powerful president. Move over Michelle Obama: China’s First Lady Peng Liyuan is now so famous in her own right, the American president’s wife will find herself having to share the spotlight when the two get together today. During Obama’s visit to China, she’ll no doubt find president Xi Jinping’s wife quite a force to be reckoned with. She’s been named one of Time Magazine’s most influential people in the world. And even if she’s not--yet--a household name across

Two objects that may be wreckage from missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 have been spotted floating in the southern Indian Ocean off Australia. The Australian government released pictures taken by satellite on March 16 of possible plane debris seen around 2,500km (1,500miles) southwest of Perth--one of the most remote areas of the planet. One of the objects is estimated to be 78ft (24m) in size, the other 15ft (five metres), and the sighting of the objects was said by Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott to be ´credible and potentially important´. Malaysian Transport Minister Hishammuddin Hussein said on Thursday that ´we have

Pro-Russian activists, some armed, have stormed the HQ of the Ukrainian navy in the Crimean city of Sevastopol. Russian flags are flying over the base and several Ukrainian servicemen have been seen with their belongings. It comes a day after Crimean leaders signed a treaty with Russia absorbing the peninsula into the Russian Federation. Sunday´s disputed referendum which officials say backed splitting from Ukraine has been widely condemned. Crimean and Russian officials say the referendum showed overwhelming public support for joining Russia, with 97% of voters in favour. But the West and the Ukrainian government in Kiev say the vote--organised in two weeks and boycotted

Ukraine suffers its first deaths in Crimea as the crisis between Russia and Ukraine hits a ´military stage´. A Ukrainian serviceman and a member of a local self-defence brigade were shot dead, and many more were arrested in a Military base in Simferopol as the crisis between Russia and Ukraine escalates closer to all-out war. [Snip] Following the base attack, Ukraine´s Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk has now warned that the conflict with Russia has escalated, saying: ´The conflict is shifting from a political to a military stage. ´Russian soldiers have started shooting at Ukrainian military servicemen, and that is a

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie took on a persistent health care activist Tuesday during a regularly scheduled town hall event in South River, New Jersey, fending off accusations for nearly four minutes. Maura Collinsgru, a health policy advocate with the liberal group New Jersey Citizen Action, blasted Christie during the question-and-answer event, the 114th such town hall he has held since taking office. She blamed him for meeting her fellow activists with ´silence´ when they try to help poor New Jerseyans access Medicaid benefits. ´Let me ask you this: When I expanded the Medicaid program, is that silence?´ retorted an

A convicted bribe-taker in President Barack Obama´s political backyard, and at least two other public servants accused of felonies, are seeking office in Tuesday´s Illinois Democratic primary elections. Former Chicago city alderman Isaac ´Ike´ Carothers spent 28 months in prison for taking bribes, and was released in March 2012. He´s running for commissioner of the Cook County board, among the most powerful positions in the Chicago metropolitan area. Carothers followed the family legacy established by his father, who once held the same position before going to prison for official corruption. The younger Carothers accepted a $9,000 bribe, and was accused

The torment being endured by the relatives of the passengers on board the missing Malaysian airliner is almost impossible to imagine. For 12 days since Flight MH370 from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing vanished, they have waited for news of their loved ones. And their anxieties and fears have been compounded by the clumsy way this baffling affair has been handled by the Malaysian authorities. Clearly, the disappearance of the Boeing 777 is an unprecedented event that would have taxed the resources of any country. But the varying--and often conflicting--accounts that the Malaysians have given about what might have happened to

Russia has moved to annex Crimea in all but name. The EU must now move to impose the “additional and far-reaching consequences” it has previously warned Russia of. Leaving aside stuff like expelling Russia from the G8 and arms embargoes (symbolic but not critical) and obvious measures like the EU diversifying its energy supply asap, what type of sanctions, if any, would actually hurt Russia in the short to medium-term? In a briefing published just now, Open Europe sets out following options: Extend individual sanctions beyond the current handful individuals: Between 2008 and 2013, a massive $421bn--equivalent to 20pc of Russian GDP--in

Malaysia Airlines: The lost final hours

The mystery over the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines flight 370 has deepened after satellite data emerged to suggest the plane flew on for hours after it was reported missing. The search operation is now concentrating on huge areas to the north and south of Malaysia, after locational ´pings´ detected by a satellite appeared to indicate the plane was somewhere on an arc stretching either north up to to Central Asia, or south, to the Indian Ocean and Australia. Evidence revealed on Saturday 15 March by the Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak suggested the jet was deliberately diverted by someone on

Al-Qaeda has published a list of car-bomb targets for its followers in Britain, including FA cup matches and the Savoy hotel. The twelfth issue of Inspire, published by al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, urges supporters to maximise casualties by targeting people--rather than buildings--in heavily populated areas. It offers instructions on how to build a car bomb using materials that will not arouse suspicion and frequently cites the example of Faisal Shahzad, the failed Times Square bomber. But its most chilling passages are reserved for a country-by-country list of targets. In the UK, it suggests events with live TV coverage, including

Some of the world’s most militarised regimes might be covering up embarrassing details about the flightpath of the missing Malaysia Airlines jet, a leading aviation expert has suggested. David Learmount, operations and safety editor at the respected Flight Global publication, said countries in the world’s most volatile region might be withholding vital radar data about Flight MH370 for fear it would expose holes in their multibillion pound air defences. [Snip] Mr Learmount said: “Maybe these states’ air defences, like Malaysia’s, are not what they are cracked up to be. And maybe they wouldn’t want the rest of the world to

The words came out of my mouth before I could stop them. “I feel sorry for Obama,” I said. As my wife looked at me in disbelief, I quickly added a correction. “Well, almost.” Beset by failures at home and abroad, the president cuts a lonely and sad figure these days. His aura of grief reflects his profound loss. His worldview crashed headlong into reality, and reality won. Obamaism is dead, may it rest in peace. That’s sad for him, but hold the tears — his loss is mankind’s hope. If Obama wakes from his utopian visions and faces the

Secretary of State John Kerry called Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Wednesday morning to protest insults the Israeli defense minister directed at the Obama administration this week, the State Department said. In a speech at Tel Aviv University on Monday, Moshe Ya’alon criticized President Obama for having a weak foreign policy, and said Israel could no longer rely on the United States to lead nuclear negotiations with Iran. “Secretary Kerry spoke with Prime Minister Netanyahu this morning. And he protested to him his concerns about these comments,” State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki told reporters Wednesday. The U.S., Psaki reaffirmed, maintains an “unshakable

Has President Obama´s impunity come to an end? After five years of his flouting the letter and spirit of the law in an increasingly brazen fashion, congressional Republicans have been starting to ramp up their rhetoric about Obama´s lawlessness, their most concerted effort on the issue to date. Several new reports from top Republicans underscore the breadth of Obama´s executive overreach. Viewed comprehensively, it involves laws ranging from healthcare to immigration to privacy to technology to social issues to national security matters and more. Scandals like Benghazi, Operation Fast and Furious, the IRS targeting of conservative groups, NSA spying, CIA

First Lady Michelle Obama will be accompanied by her children and her mother on her trip to China, which begins today. But she won´t be accompanied by the press. "Michelle Obama’s trip to China starting on Wednesday will be nonpolitical, the White House says, a ´people-to-people exchange´ emphasizing the importance that both nations place on education. As if to underscore the point, no reporters are traveling with the first lady, and she does not plan to give interviews while there," reports the New York Times. The White House is defending the first lady bringing her family along for the ride by saying

Health industry officials say ObamaCare-related premiums will double in some parts of the country, countering claims recently made by the administration. The expected rate hikes will be announced in the coming months amid an intense election year, when control of the Senate is up for grabs. The sticker shock would likely bolster the GOP’s prospects in November and hamper ObamaCare insurance enrollment efforts in 2015. The industry complaints come less than a week after Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius sought to downplay concerns about rising premiums in the healthcare sector. She told lawmakers rates would increase in 2015 but

Government officials now admit the data system and transponder quit communicating after the pilots said things were OK. That means they didn’t lie. The official Malaysian account of the last contacts made to and received by Flight MH370 is unraveling. As it does, the sinister interpretations of what happened in the cockpit of the Boeing 777 become less persuasive. We return to the all-important timeline. Originally, the Malaysians said that the last words from the cockpit—from the copilot, “All right, good night”—were spoken to air traffic controllers as the airplane left Malaysian air space at 1:30am. This week, that timing was significantly changed

First lady Michelle Obama will not take questions from reporters or give interviews during her tour of China that begins today, and members of the press corps who usually follows the first family everywhere have been banned from the trip. The resulting picture is one of an expensive, taxpayer-funded vacation for Mrs. Obama, her two daughters, and her mother – and not the official good-will journey the White House has promised. White House press officials won´t comment to MailOnline about whether the ban on media interviews applies equally to American journalists and Chinese reporters. ´How does this comport with the
