|Hundreds pay respects to slain Kosovo Serb leaderWLNS / 6 min. ago more|
MITROVICA, Kosovo (AP) — People in a northern Kosovo town have been paying their respects to the Serb politician who was gunned down in an attack that raised fears of instability in the Balkans. Hundreds lighted candles outside the headquarters of Oliver Ivanovic’s political party in Mitrovica, where unknown attackers opened fire on him on Tuesday. Some people cried as they stood in silence at the scene Wednesday. An autopsy has shown that Ivanovic was shot six times in the upper torso. Ivanovic was one of the key politicians in Serb-dominated northern Kosovo, a former Serbian province where tensions remain high a decade after Kosovo declared independence in 2008. Serbia does not recognize Kosovo as a separate country. Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic has announced he will visit Kosovo on the weekend.
|Police mobilize against protesters in French airport disputeWLNS / 16 min. ago more|
PARIS (AP) — Police are deploying extra forces to western France as the government prepares to decide whether to build an airport that has mobilized nearly a decade of sometimes violent protests. Anarchists, farmers and environmental activists have occupied a vast area around Notre-Dame-des-Landes, outside the city of Nantes, to resist the proposed airport. Protesters from other regions have reportedly arrived in recent days. A police official said Wednesday that extra gendarmes and riot police are being sent this week to the area, because police plan to try to clear out the protesters once the government makes a decision. President Emmanuel Macron’s Cabinet is scheduled to discuss the airport at a meeting Wednesday. Proponents argue the region needs a larger airport to boost its economic prospects. Opponents say the airport is unnecessary and a symbol of exploitative globalization.
|European car sales increase for 4th straight yearWLNS / 16 min. ago more|
MILAN (AP) — Car sales in Europe rose for the fourth straight year in 2017, topping 15 million units for the first time in a decade. The ACEA association of European carmakers said Wednesday that car sales rose by 3.4 percent last year, from 14.6 million in 2016. Italy and Spain tallied the strongest gains, nearing 8 percent, followed by France at nearly 5 percent and Germany at nearly 3 percent. But demand for new cars declined in Britain by nearly 6 percent on the heels of the vote to leave the European Union. Mass-market carmaker PSA Peugeot Citroen expanded by a full 28 percent to over 1.8 million vehicles. Volkswagen remained the No. 1 automaker in the market, increasing a modest 2.3 percent to 3.5 million vehicles
|Syria Kurdish party appeals to world against Turkish threatsWLNS / 26 min. ago more|
BEIRUT (AP) — Syria’s dominant Kurdish party is appealing on the international community to help ensure the security of a Syrian Kurdish enclave threatened by Turkey. Ankara has threatened to launch an imminent military operation on the northwestern Kurdish enclave of Afrin, where an estimated 1 million people live. The Kurdish Democratic Union Party, or PYD, is the political arm of the U.S.-backed Syrian Democratic Forces, which currently control nearly 25 percent of Syrian territory. The PYD says in Wednesday’s appeal that, should Turkey launch the operation, the world will bear responsibility for the lives of the people in the enclave. Ankara views Syrian Kurdish forces — the PYD and the affiliated militia — as an extension of its own insurgents whom it labels as terrorists and who are fighting within Turkey’s borders.
|7 dead as Myanmar police open fire to disperse protestersWLNS / 26 min. ago more|
BANGKOK (AP) — Myanmar police opened fire at hundreds of protesters angry about a ban on a local festival, killing seven people, officials said Wednesday. The protesters in Rakhine state marched through the ancient city of Mrauk-U and ransacked a government building on Tuesday after authorities banned the anniversary celebration of the founding of the old kingdom, saying they were not informed about it beforehand. Deputy director of the regional government Tin Maung Swe said police warned the mob to stop but they were being physically attacked and officers had to respond after initially using rubber bullets. The protest involved Rakhine Buddhists. Rakhine is also home to minority Rohingya Muslims, who have long faced persecution that has seen about 650,000 people driven away from their homes into Bangladesh since August.

|Office of rights group in Russia’s North Caucasus torchedWLNS / 45 min. ago more|
MOSCOW (AP) — Prominent human rights group Memorial says masked attackers have torched its office in the region of Ingushetia in Russia’s North Caucasus. The arson attack that Memorial said happened in the early hours on Wednesday came a week after the chief of the group’s branch in neighboring Chechnya was detained on suspicion of drug possession. The man’s arrest has been widely regarded as a payoff by Chechen authorities for Memorial’s work exposing rampant rights abuses in the North Caucasus. Memorial said in a statement on Wednesday they believe the attack is linked to the crackdown on Memorial in Chechnya. Repression against government critics and rights advocates has often spilled over from Chechnya to neighboring Ingushetia, where Chechen operatives have been known to have a free hand.
|Qatar: Exiled sheikh promoted by Saudi Arabia now in KuwaitWLNS / 56 min. ago more|
KUWAIT CITY (AP) — An exiled Qatari sheikh once promoted by Saudi Arabia as a possible opposition leader amid a diplomatic dispute with Doha is now in Kuwait, authorities said Wednesday, after he had alleged that the United Arab Emirates was holding him against his will. It’s the latest chapter in Sheikh Abdullah bin Ali Al Thani’s mysterious travels, after he appeared in an online video on Sunday, following months of silence, to say the UAE wouldn’t allow him to leave. Abu Dhabi has denied that, saying he was free to go where he pleased. However, it only added fire to an ongoing dispute that saw the UAE allege this week that Qatari fighter jets “intercepted” two Emirati commercial airliners, something denied by Doha. Qatar’s National Human Rights Committee told The Associated Press on Wednesday that Sheikh Abdullah was in Kuwait and “will undergo health check-ups.” The committee said it confirmed that with the sheikh’s family. Kuwaiti media reported that the sheikh arrived late on Tuesday night to Kuwait City, his flight greeted by an ambulance and a convoy of vehicles that took him to a military hospital. Kuwait’s Information Ministry did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Sheikh Abdullah was little-known until the Qatar diplomatic crisis erupted last June, with Bahrain, Egypt, Saudi Arabia and the UAE cutting off Doha’s land, sea and air routes. The four Arab nations accuse Qatar of funding extremists and having too-close ties to Iran. Qatar has long denied funding extremists, though it supports Islamist opposition movements that are considered terrorist groups by other countries in the region. It recently restored full diplomatic ties with Iran, with which it shares a massive offshore natural gas field. Sheikh Abdullah’s grandfather, father and brother were rulers of Qatar until a palace coup ousted his branch of the ruling family in 1972. His last position in government was as head of the equestrian and camel racing federation decades ago. Since the crisis, Sheikh Abdullah has held high-profile meetings with Saudi King Salman and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman. Those meetings came as Riyadh allowed Qatari pilgrims over the border in August for the hajj, a pilgrimage required of every able-bodied Muslim at least once in a lifetime. The Saudis then began suggesting Sheikh Abdullah should rule Qatar as an emir in exile, while Saudi-funded television networks provided him coverage. A quickly created Twitter account in his name amassed hundreds of thousands of followers. However, the last tweet on the account came in October and Sheikh Abdullah has not been publicly seen for some time. He remerged with an online video Sunday, immediately aired by Doha-based news network Al-Jazeera. In it, Sheikh Abdullah says he was invited to Abu Dhabi as a guest of “Sheikh Mohammed,” apparently a reference to Abu Dhabi’s powerful crown prince, Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, who enjoys strong ties to Saudi Arabia’s rulers. “I am a guest of Sheikh Mohammed but it is not hosting now, it is now an imprisonment,” Sheikh Abdullah says in the video. “They told me not to leave and I am afraid something will happen to me and they blame Qatar.” “I just wanted to let you know that Qatar is innocent in this and I am being hosted by Sheikh Mohammed and anything that happens to me after this is under his responsibility,” he adds. The report later Sunday on the UAE’s state-run WAM news agency said Sheikh Abdullah was “free in his movements” while in the country. “He expressed his desire to leave the country … all procedures were facilitated without any interference,” WAM said. It did not say where the sheikh went, though it implied he flew out Sunday. It wasn’t immediately clear where the sheikh has been in recent days. ___ Gambrell reported from Dubai, United Arab Emirates.
|Chinese-American journalist says China kidnapped his wifeWLNS / 1 h. 6 min. ago more|
BEIJING (AP) — A Chinese-American journalist who extensively interviewed the exiled businessman Guo Wengui says his wife has been kidnapped and held for months by Chinese security forces. Chen Xiaoping, a New York-based editor at Chinese-language Media Mirror Group, told The Associated Press that a new video that surfaced this week of his wife denouncing his work was filmed under duress and proves that she is being held captive by the government. An anonymous YouTube account believed to be linked to Chinese security agencies uploaded a video on Monday of Li Huaiping asking her husband to stop searching for her. Li disappeared from southern China in September. Guo’s allegations of high-level corruption have infuriated the ruling Communist Party. Calls to police headquarters in the southern province of Guangdong rang unanswered Wednesday.
|Politics in China weighs heavily on businessWLNS / 1 h. 56 min. ago more|
BEIJING (AP) — Politics weighs more heavily on foreign companies in China than it has in nearly three decades. The latest flashpoint was Beijing’s fury last week at hotel keeper Marriott and other companies that labeled self-ruled Taiwan a company on websites or customer materials. But companies face pressure on many sides from President Xi Jinping’s more nationalistic stance and twin campaigns to tighten the ruling Communist Party’s political control and have it play a direct role in business. Businesspeople complain their operations are being hampered by internet disruptions due to Beijing’s latest campaign to tighten censorship of what the Chinese public sees online. They face pressure to promote initiatives such as helping potential Chinese rivals develop technology in fields including electric cars.
|Pakistani police: Suicide bomber targets officer in KarachiWLNS / 1 h. 56 min. ago more|
KARACHI, Pakistan (AP) — Pakistani police say a senior officer known for leading raids on militant hideouts escaped assassination when a suicide bomber riding on a motorcycle blew himself up near his vehicle in the port city of Karachi. The police say the officer, Rao Anwar, was unhurt in the attack, which took place late on Tuesday. The bomber had an unknown number of accomplices who opened fire at Anwar’s car after the explosion. His guards returned fire, killing two of the gunmen. The police have mounted a hunt for the rest of the attackers. On Wednesday, Pakistani Taliban spokesman Mohammad Khurasani claimed responsibility for the attack. The Taliban have been waging a war on the Pakistani government for years, a conflict that has killed tens of thousands of people over the last decade.

|The Latest: SKorea’s Moon backs joint hockey team with NorthWLNS / 2 h. 6 min. ago more|
SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — The Latest on talks between North and South Korea (all times local): ___ 5 p.m. South Korea’s president says fielding a joint ice hockey team with North Korea during next month’s Winter Olympics would be a historic event that moves the hearts of people around the world. Moon Jae-in’s office says the president made the remarks during a meeting with South Korean athletes on Wednesday. South Korea wants the International Olympic Committee to allow several North Korean players to join the South Korean women’s hockey team, in what would be the rivals’ first unified Olympic team. Moon said a joint team could boost inter-Korean ties. He said South and North Korean athletes playing together during the Olympics would be “a historic event” that moves people in South Korea and around the world. ___ 3:40 p.m. South Korea says North Korea plans to send a 230-member cheering squad to South Korea during next month’s Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang. Seoul’s Unification Ministry says in a statement the North also proposed its Olympic delegation travel to South Korea across the land border during talks Wednesday. It says the two Koreas also discussed fielding a joint women’s hockey team and conducting a joint march during the opening ceremony of the Pyeongchang Games. It says the talks will continue later Wednesday. The North has said its delegation would also include officials, athletes, journalists, an art troupe and a taekwondo demonstration team. ___ 2 p.m. South Korea says North Korea will send a delegation to the Paralympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea in March. Seoul’s Unification Ministry says in a statement that the North informed it of such a plan during talks Wednesday at the border. The talks, the third round in less than 10 days, were arranged to discuss cooperation in next month’s Pyeongchang Olympics. The Unification Ministry says the two Korea will hold further talks on a detailed makeup of the North Korean Paralympics delegation. North Korea agreed last week to send a delegation to the Pyeongchang Olympics in a conciliatory gesture after a year of heightened animosities over its nuclear and missile programs. ___ Noon A government spokesman has said that South Korea will ensure that any proposal for a joint women’s hockey team with North Korea at the Winter Olympics will not have a negative impact on South Korean players. Unification Ministry spokesman Baik Tae-hyun said Wednesday that the government is aware of public concerns that adding North Korean players could displace South Koreans who have made the team. His comments came as the two Koreas were holding talks on North Korean participation in the Winter Games in South Korea next month. South Korea wants the IOC to allow the hockey team’s roster to be expanded to make room for North Korean players. If a joint squad is realized, it would be the Koreas’ first unified team in an Olympics. ___ 10:55 a.m. The two Koreas are meeting for the third time in 10 days to discuss North Korean participation in next month’s Winter Olympics in South Korea. Officials from both sides met Wednesday in the village of Panmunjom inside the Demilitarized Zone that divides their countries. North Korea agreed last week to send a delegation to the Olympics. The move has provided a tentative thaw in the strained ties between the Koreas. Proposals expected to be discussed Wednesday include a joint women’s hockey team and marching together during the opening ceremony. The talks precede a meeting among the two countries and the IOC in Switzerland on Saturday. The Koreas agreed earlier this week that 80 North Korean orchestra members and 60 singers and dancers would perform in the South during the games.
|Mueller team would hardly be first lawyers to question TrumpWLNS / 2 h. 26 min. ago more|
WASHINGTON (AP) — An Associated Press review of statements made under oath by President Donald Trump gives clues about how he might handle questions from special counsel Robert Mueller’s team of investigators. It’s not clear when or even if Mueller and his team will question Trump, though the topic has been broached. The AP reviewed hundreds of pages of depositions taken of Trump over the last decade, including in defamation and contract lawsuits, before he became president. The transcripts show a witness who is at times talkative, boastful, unapologetic and combative. Yet there’s an unmistakable deftness, including a tendency to pass blame for problematic decisions, to deflect probing questions to lawyers or accountants and to answer others with hedged, vague or non-responsive language that frustrates interrogators.
|Optimism in Iraq fuels revived interest in vintage carsWLNS / 2 h. 35 min. ago more|
BAGHDAD (AP) — When Iraqi forces drove Islamic State militants out of eastern Mosul a year ago, Nashwan Shakir Mahmoud raced back to his home, hoping that his red and white 1955 Chevrolet coupe had survived three years of war and upheaval. When he saw that it had only suffered light damage from a mortar shell that landed nearby, he was overjoyed. “I had an unspeakable feeling, I sighed in relief when saw it,” he said. He spent 10 days carrying out his own repairs and then drove it all the way back to Baghdad, a 13-hour journey that would have taken four in a modern car. “When I reached Baghdad,” he said, “people were stopping me in the streets to take pictures and videos. It was like a dream to me and to the people.” The 49-year-old father of six is part of a small community of vintage car aficionados who are hoping to rekindle their passion now that the war against the Islamic State group is over. For many, the cars remind them of happier times in Iraq, before decades of war and chaos, which they hope are finally coming to an end. “These cars have something spiritual that lets you feel the happiness of the good old days,” said Mahmoud, who also owns a 1964 GMC pickup. The pickup is in a mechanic’s garage in Mosul’s Old City, in an unsecured area cordoned off by security forces. Mahmoud had two other vintage cars — a 1957 Dodge Coronet and a 1967 Dodge pickup — but U.S. soldiers towed them away in 2006 after warning him against parking them on the street without getting them repaired, saying militants could use them to conceal roadside bombs. He said he cried when they were taken away. Iraq’s vintage cars date back to the period between the discovery of oil in the 1920s and the booming 1970s, when the country was awash in petroleum wealth and boasted some of the finest roads in the region. Much of that infrastructure was destroyed in the Iran-Iraq war in the 1980s and the 1990 Gulf War. The sanctions in the 1990s made it difficult to secure spare parts. In the chaotic years after the 2003 U.S.-led invasion, many collectors kept their cars hidden or locked up, while the daily bombings, and the blast walls and barbed wire that sprouted across Baghdad and other cities, took the pleasure out of driving. Now, many of those barriers have come down, and some collectors feel more comfortable showing off their treasures. Saad al-Nuaimi, 65, has parked six vintage cars in front of his coffee shop in Baghdad’s northern Azamiyah neighborhood, including green and blue 1954 Chevrolet Bel Airs and two Townson cars from mid 1960s. Three others, including a 1952 Chevrolet and a 1959 Townson, are being repaired. “When you feel secure, you have the guts to get money out of your pocket to enjoy such beauties,” he said. Many Iraqis from war-battered areas are desperate to sell old cars, and as Iraqi forces have driven IS back over the past three years, more and more models have appeared on the market, al-Nuaimi said. His latest acquisition was a badly damaged maroon 1952 Chevrolet from Salahuddin province, where IS was driven out in 2015. He restores the cars himself, ordering spare parts from Europe and the United States. The government keeps its own trove of vintage cars, including a rare 1904 Jeep Levon and luxury models used by the Hashemite monarchy from 1921 until 1958, including a 1936 Mercedes-Benz that was a gift from Adolf Hitler. Others belonged to Uday, the notoriously brutal playboy son of Saddam Hussein. Some have had their body work restored but do not have working engines, while others are in very poor condition. The collection is stored in a garage for safe-keeping and is only rarely exhibited to the public. Adil al-Ardawi, the vintage car expert in charge of the royal collection, says at least 1,000 troops were assigned to protect the cars when they were used in a parade last year to mark the 100th anniversary of Baghdad’s al-Rashid Street. Ahmad Shukor, a 39-year-old engineer who runs a Facebook page devoted to documenting Iraq’s vintage cars, says only around 100 remain nationwide. He says a third were in Mosul, and that many of them may have been damaged or destroyed. He’s now in the final stages of opening a vintage car showroom in the central city of Najaf. The owners of more than 60 cars have agreed to display them there when the showroom opens in the coming months. “We want to prove that Iraq is not done yet,” he said. ____ Follow Sinan Salaheddin on Twitter at https://twitter.com/sinansm.
