|Confederate Memorial in MadisonWORT / 12 h. 28 min. ago more|
Violence in Charlottesville last week over the removal of a Confederate monument has cities across the country considering what to do about their own tributes to the Confederacy. That debate is not limited to the south. Madison Mayor Paul Soglin is calling for the city to grapple with its own Confederate monument located in the Forest Hill Cemetery. Soglin calls the 1931 monument, “a neo-confederate monument to racism and white superiority.” An organization called the Daughters of the Confederacy, whose aim was to paint a more flattering picture of rebel forces built the monument. Soglin says that the monument supports the ongoing hundred years of Jim Crow laws and supports lies about the treason of the Confederacy. It has nothing to do with prisoners of war held at Camp Randall or the burial of those Confederate soldiers. His suggestion is to build a more “honest” monument with a goal of educating the public about what these organizations actually stood for. WORT’s Nina Kravinsky reports.

DeAndre Lewis, an African-American journalist, was severely beaten by four men wearing neo-Nazi insignia. Later, after police declared an unlawful assembly, James Alex Fields, Jr. drove his car at high speed into a crowd of counter-protestors, killing Heather Heyer and wounding 19 others.

|Barcelona attacker named by police as Younes AbouyaaqoubWORT / 1 d. 0 h. 53 min. ago more|
Barcelona attacker named by police as Younes Abouyaaqoub 21 August 2017 From the section Europe Image copyright El Pais Image caption CCTV footage appears to show Abouyaaqoub fleeing the attack on foot Spanish police have confirmed the identity of the driver suspected of killing 13 people in last week’s attack in Barcelona. He is 22-year-old Younes Abouyaaqoub, officials said, and the manhunt has been extended across Europe. Authorities earlier said they could not rule out the possibility that he had slipped across the border to France. New CCTV footage from the day of the attack appears to show him fleeing the scene on foot. Three images in El Pais newspaper allegedly show the man walking through La Boqueria market, wearing sunglasses, as he passes other people heading away from Las Ramblas. Police say they are investigating the possibility that, some 90 minutes later, the suspect stabbed and killed a Spanish man and stole his car. He appears to have been alone at the time. Two hours after the attack, 34-year-old Pau Pérez from Vila Franca was found dead in his vehicle. He is the 15th person confirmed dead following the two attacks. Thirteen were killed when the van, allegedly driven by Moroccan-born Abouyaaqoub, swerved through crowds in the busy area Las Ramblas in Barcelona on Thursday, and one woman died during a second attack in Cambrils hours later, in which five attackers were killed by police. Image copyright AFP/Getty Image caption Younes Abouyaaqoub, 22, has emerged as the main suspect in the Barcelona attack On Sunday, Catalan police chief Josep Lluís Trapero said that of the 12 suspects, only one – assumed to be Abouyaaqoub – remained at large. Four others were under arrest and there were two sets of human remains to be identified, Mr Trapero said. Five were killed during a second attack in Cambrils. French media report that the vehicle used in Cambrils had been caught on speed cameras in France’s Essonne region the previous week. But a direct link between the group of attackers in Spain and the car’s appearance in France has not yet been established. It has now emerged that an imam living in the town of Ripoll, where Abouyaaqoub and several other suspects came from, is suspected of recruiting young people to an extremist cause. Spain attacks: What we know so far In pictures: Barcelona van attack Who were the victims? Family members of the dead suspects said they believe Imam Abdelbaki Es Satty radicalised several young people from the town. A picture is now emerging of Imam Satty as a possible ringleader or key organiser of the 12-strong terror cell, the BBC’s Europe reporter Gavin Lee said. The imam apparently left the mosque in June for an extended trip to Morocco, but a flatmate told the BBC he had been seen in Ripoll as recently as last Tuesday. Media playback is unsupported on your device Media captionInside the chocolate box town hiding terror suspects The father of two of those shot dead by police in Cambrils, Mohamed and Omar Hychami, told the BBC he was devastated. Hecham Igasi also accused the imam of radicalising his sons. The search for Imam Satty has lost some urgency after police suggested he may have died in an explosion in Alcanar on Wednesday. The explosion is believed to have been an accident during the manufacture of explosives. The group had apparently been planning three coordinated attacks using the home-made bombs. Police found about 120 gas canisters at the site. Barcelona attack: What the trees say Spain attacks: ‘It was very frightening’ Spain’s long anti-terror experience Spanish media outlets say Imam Satty had spent some time in prison, and had met prisoners involved or linked with the 2004 Madrid train bombings, in which 191 people died. He also stayed in Belgium for some three months last year, where he had been searching for work, including in Vilvoorde, a small town of just 42,000 – from which more than 20 jihadists departed for Syria in 2014. The mayor of Vilvoorde, Hans Bonte, said the imam had spent time there between January and March 2016, and had been screened by police. But at the time, there did not appear to be a serious issue, he said. So-called Islamic State (IS) said it had carried out the Las Ramblas attack, though it is not clear whether any of the attackers were directly connected to the group or simply inspired by it.

Marseille bus stop hit by van, one dead and driver arrested 21 August 2017 From the section Europe Media playback is unsupported on your device Media captionThe car had hit another bus shelter in the city earlier in the day A woman has been killed after a van struck a bus shelter in the southern French city of Marseille, police say. The driver has been arrested. His vehicle had struck another bus shelter in a different district of the city earlier in the morning, seriously injuring one person. French prosecutors say the case is not being treated as a terrorist incident. French media reports say the driver is known to police and may have mental health issues. The unconfirmed reports say he has a criminal record but is not known to the intelligence services. The first bus stop was hit at about 09:15 (07:15 GMT) at Croix Rouge in the 13th district, where one person was seriously hurt. The second bus stop was struck at about 10:00 at Valentine in the 11th district. French media say the woman who died was in her 40s.

|Kim Wall died in accident on submarine, Danish inventor saysWORT / 1 d. 1 h. 25 min. ago more|
Kim Wall died in accident on submarine, Danish inventor says 21 August 2017 From the section Europe Image copyright Ritzau Foto Image caption Kim Wall boarded Peter Madsen’s submarine Nautilus on 10 August, and then disappeared A Danish inventor charged over the death of Swedish journalist Kim Wall has said she died in an accident on his submarine and he “buried” her at sea, Copenhagen police say. The court case is being heard behind closed doors but Peter Madsen’s explanation of what happened was released after a request from the defence and prosecution. Ms Wall was last seen on Mr Madsen’s submarine on the night of 10 August. The search for her continues. In a statement, Copenhagen police also said that maritime authorities have determined the route the submarine travelled in Koge Bay and the Oresund strait before sinking. Mr Madsen, 46, claims that he left her body somewhere in Koge Bay, south of Copenhagen, the police said. A search effort involving divers, helicopters and ships has been under way along the identified route since Friday. The Danish inventor has been charged with negligent manslaughter. The police say they cannot release any more information at this time. Kim Wall: What we know and what we don’t Who is DIY submariner Peter Madsen? Ms Wall, a respected 30-year-old journalist who wrote for several international publications, was first reported missing by her boyfriend after she failed to return from what should have been a short trip on the UC3 Nautilus submarine. She had been researching a feature about Mr Madsen and his 40-tonne submarine, which at one stage was the largest privately-made vessel of its kind. Police believe the submarine was deliberately sunk by Mr Madsen, who was rescued before being arrested. Peter Madsen initially said he dropped Kim Wall off after dark on 10 August, close to where they had met earlier. But police later said he had given them a new account of events, which was not made public at the time.

|US Navy ship and oil tanker collide near SingaporeWORT / 1 d. 3 h. 15 min. ago more|
US Navy ship and oil tanker collide near Singapore 21 August 2017 From the section Asia Media playback is unsupported on your device Media captionThe USS John S McCain suffered damage midships to port Ten US Navy sailors are missing and five have been injured after a US destroyer and an oil tanker collided near Singapore, the Navy says. The guided missile destroyer USS John S McCain was sailing east of Singapore and preparing to stop in the port when the collision with the Liberian-flagged vessel occurred. A wide-ranging search and rescue operation is under way. It is the second collision involving a US Navy ship in recent months. What do we know about the collision? It was reported before dawn at 05:24 local time on Monday (21:24 GMT on Sunday) and took place east of the Strait of Singapore, as the USS John S McCain prepared to perform a routine port stop in Singapore. Singapore and US authorities said the destroyer sustained damage to her port side, which is the left-hand side of the vessel facing forward. Image copyright EPA Image caption Crew berthing, machinery and communications rooms were flooded, the Navy said The tanker it collided with, Alnic MC, sustained damage to a tank near the front of the ship 7m (23ft) above the waterline, but none of its crew were injured and there were no oil spills. At 182m (600ft), the tanker is slightly longer than the 154m-long US destroyer. What is happening now? US military helicopters as well as the Singaporean and Malaysian navies and coast guards are currently conducting search and rescue operations. Image copyright Reuters Image caption A Singapore Air Force helicopter transports wounded to hospital Malaysian Navy chief Admiral Kamarulzaman said a message had been sent to fishing vessels along the Johor and Pahang coasts to keep a look out for missing sailors. A Malaysian Navy spokesman later told a news conference: “The waves are between 0.5m and 1.5m, so the sea is quite rough and can be very challenging if you don’t have a life jacket.” The US Navy said four of the injured sailors had non-life threatening injuries and were medically evacuated to a Singapore hospital. The fifth person did not require further medical attention. The US Navy 7th Fleet later issued a statement saying the USS John S McCain had now arrived at Singapore’s Changi naval base. It said: “Significant damage to the hull resulted in flooding to nearby compartments, including crew berthing, machinery, and communications rooms. Damage control efforts by the crew halted further flooding.” Image copyright Malaysian Navy Chief Image caption A picture of the Alnic MC tweeted by Malaysia’s navy chief The Alnic MC is making its way to the Raffles Reserved Anchorage in Singapore. One crew member of the oil tanker told Reuters over the phone that the vessel sustained some damage to a valve. The ship was carrying nearly 12,000 tonnes of oil from Taiwan to Singapore, the news agency reported. The Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore said: “There is no report of oil pollution and traffic in the Singapore Strait is unaffected.” Repeat event raises questions Karishma Vaswani, BBC News, Singapore The timing of this is awkward for the United States. It’s the first day of annual drills between the US and South Korean armies, a show of might in the face of North Korean belligerence. The USS John McCain is part of the US Navy’s 7th Fleet, its largest fleet, but this accident will add to questions about the operations of the navy in the region more widely. This is the same naval group that saw a similar accident only in June, when seven US sailors lost their lives. Just last week several officers were disciplined in relation to that incident. This is also thought to be the fourth such collision involving US warships in the past year alone. Add to this the confusion earlier this year over the whereabouts of another US warship in the Pacific – the USS Carl Vinson – which President Trump said was sailing for North Korea, but was actually headed in the opposite direction for training exercises with the Australian navy. What’s the response so far? Shortly after news of the collision came out, the US chief of naval operations, John Richardson, tweeted that the first priority was to determine the safety of the ship and the crew. US senator John McCain tweeted that he and his wife were praying for the sailors. The vessel was named after his father and grandfather, both admirals in the Navy.

Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 21, 2017 Report End of Twitter post by @realDonaldTrump Has this happened before? This is thought to be the fourth time in a year that a US navy vessel has been involved in an accident. Just two months ago, seven US sailors were killed when the USS Fitzgerald collided with a container ship in Japanese waters near the port city of Yokosuka. In pictures: USS Fitzgerald crash Those who died were found in flooded berths on board the ship after the collision caused a gash under the warship’s waterline. The US Navy said last week that about a dozen sailors would be disciplined, and the commanding officer and other senior crew would be taken off the ship. In May, a guided missile cruiser collided with a South Korean fishing vessel, while in August last year a submarine collided with an offshore support vessel.
