  • Turkey's Erdogan calls on New Zealand to restore death penalty over shooting

    Golocal247.com news

    President Tayyip Erdogan on Tuesday called on New Zealand to restore the death penalty for the gunman who killed 50 people at two Christchurch mosques, warning that Turkey would make the attacker pay for his act if New Zealand did not. Australian Brenton Tarrant, 28, a suspected white supremacist, was charged with murder on Saturday after a lone gunman opened fire at the two mosques during Muslim Friday prayers. If New Zealand doesn't make you, we know how to make you pay one way or another," Erdogan told an election rally of thousands in northern Turkey.

  • Utrecht gunman left letter in getaway car signalling possible terrorism motive

    Golocal247.com news

    Dutch authorities said Tuesday they were "seriously" investigating a possible terrorist motive for the Utrecht tram attack because of evidence including a letter found in the gunman's getaway car. Police were questioning Turkish-born main suspect Gokmen Tanis, 37, and two other men over Monday's rampage in which three people were killed and seven injured, three seriously. Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte had earlier said they "cannot exclude" other motives including a family dispute, but police and prosecutors said on Tuesday that the probe was leaning towards terrorism. "So far, a terrorist motive is seriously being taken into account. This is based on a letter found in the getaway car among other things and the nature of the facts," police and prosecutors said in a joint statement. "Our investigation has established no link between the main suspect and the victims." Flowers have been set up in tribute to victims at the site of the shooting in a tram Credit: JOHN THYS/ AFP The three people who died in the shooting were a 19-year-old woman from Vianen, south of Utrecht, and two men aged 28 and 49 from Utrecht itself, the statement said. Armed police captured Tanis after an eight-hour manhunt that virtually shut down the Netherlands' fourth largest city and triggered a nationwide increase in security at airports and key sites. Police said they had found a red Renault Clio used as a getaway car after the attack. They had also found a firearm after his arrest, they added. Tanis and two other men aged 23 and 27 are still being interrogated, police said. A stream of mourners laid flowers on Tuesday at the site of the attack near the 24 Oktoberplein square. "One of the victims was my friend's girlfriend. So coming here today was the least I could do," Marco van Rooijen, 43, told AFP. "I am here to pay homage to the victims and to support their families," added local resident Yvette Koetjeloozekoot, 29. Flags were flying half-mast on many buildings around the Netherlands. Public transport was running again after forensic police finished their investigations at the scene and removed the tram on which the shooting erupted. Rutte was chairing a cabinet meeting on the attack, which has raised security fears a day before provincial elections in the Netherlands. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said his country's intelligence agency was "looking into" the attack. "Some say it is a family matter, some say it is a terror attack ... Our intelligence agency is looking into the matter", Erdogan told Ulke TV late Monday. Dutch media have reported that the suspect had a long rap sheet and was only released from jail two weeks ago on a number of charges. Broadcaster NOS reported that some people close to him had links to fundamentalist Islamic groups, but also that he had divorced his wife two years ago. Police and witnesses said gunfire broke out on the tram on Monday morning, sending people fleeing and triggering a huge police response. Mosques and schools were closed across Utrecht following the bloodshed, before heavily armed officers surrounded a building and arrested Tanis. Support for the Netherlands poured in from around the world including the United States, the EU and Russia. US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said: "America stands with you. We will continue to do all we can to help you in this terrible time of tragedy."

The judges warned that Ambani would be jailed for three months if 4.5 billion rupees were not stumped up within a month.

  • Beto Campaign Raises $6.1 Million on First Day, Beating Dem. Rivals

    Golocal247.com news

    Former Texas representative Beto O’Rourke's brand new presidential campaign said Monday that it pulled in a hefty $6.1 million during its first 24 hours, besting the first-day totals for every other Democratic presidential candidate."In just 24 hours, Americans across this country came together to prove that it is possible to run a true grassroots campaign for president — a campaign by all of us, for all of us, that answers not to the PACs, corporations, and special interests but to the people," the El Paso Democrat said in a statement.O'Rourke announced his candidacy Thursday, triggering a massive outpouring of online donations from his supporters. He promised on Saturday to eschew lobbyist and PAC money."Our campaign will be funded by We the People — that is how we'll be able to reach and listen to voters in all 50 states. No PACs. No corporations. No lobbyists or special interests. It'll be ALL people," read a fundraising email from O'Rourke's campaign. "If we have a strong showing on our first day, people will see it as a sign that this campaign is off to a good start. That will encourage even more people to join us," a separate fundraising email read.Senator Bernie Sanders raised $5.9 million, just under O'Rourke's figure, during the first day of his 2020 campaign. Other Democratic candidates such as Senators Kamala Harris ($1.5 million) and Amy Klobuchar ($1 million) raised considerably less.O’Rourke, 46, served three House terms representing his western Texas district before giving incumbent Senator Ted Cruz an unexpectedly tough challenge last fall. He demonstrated his fundraising talent during that race, raising a record $80 million.

  • Mesut Ozil sparks new political row over wedding invite for Turkish president

    Golocal247.com news

    The footballer Mesut Özil has become embroiled in a new political row in Germany over reports he asked Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, Turkey’s president, to be guest of honour at his wedding. The Arsenal star resigned from the German national team last year claiming he was a victim of racism after coming under fire over his public support for Mr Erdoğan . German politicians spoke out after he was pictured with his fiancee, Amine Gulse, meeting Mr Erdoğan at Istanbul airport last week. “The fact this is still going on will disappoint a lot of football fans, including me,” Angela Merkel’s chief of staff, Helge Braun, told reporters. Bild, Germany’s highest-selling newspaper, carried reports of the wedding invitation on its front page. Last year's extraordinary political row which culminated in one of Germany’s biggest football stars quitting the national team began when Özil and Ilkay Gündoğan, another player of Turkish descent, posed for photographs with Mr Erdoğan in London. Özil's decision to pose alongside Mr Erdoğan last year set off a political row that culminated in his retirement from the German national team Credit: KAYHAN OZER/AFP Several Germans were being held in Turkey at the time as part of the regime’s crackdown on opposition and press freedom, and the footballer's decision to pose alongside the Turkish president caused widespread public anger in Germany. Many blamed the controversy for Germany’s poor performance in the World Cup, and Özil  subsequently announced his retirement from the national team on Twitter, writing: “If we win, I’m German. If we lose, I’m an immigrant." A third-generation German whose grandparents immigrated from Turkey, Özil defended his decision to pose with Mr Erdoğan as “respecting the highest office of my family's country”. He announced his engagement to Ms Gulse, a former Miss Turkey, earlier this year. “Everyone can invite whoever he likes to his wedding, and of course this also applies to Mesut Özil,” said Cem Özdemir of the Green Party, Germany’s highest-profile politician of Turkish heritage. “But both current and former national players are role models and must ask themselves whether they live up to that role if they indulge autocrats who enrich themselves at the expense of their country and make their opponents disappear in dungeons. I think that is inappropriate.”

  • Leak teases OnePlus 7 with a new all-screen design that ditches the notch

    Golocal247.com news

    If it sticks to tradition, OnePlus will likely launch two standard smartphones this year: The OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7T. But the Chinese smartphone maker will also sell a standalone 5G phone in some markets as soon as next quarter. That device was on display in heavy camouflage at MWC 2018 a few weeks ago, but it’s unclear whether it’ll be a part of the OnePlus 7 series. Meanwhile, several leaks have claimed that OnePlus will deliver a brand new design with the OnePlus 7, and we have one more image that seems to confirm those reports. OnePlus has yet to announce the OnePlus 7, but the company did confirm the phone won’t have a 3.5mm headphone jack or wireless charging. Rumors then said the handset will feature an all-screen, notch-less design. Instead of the teardrop notch that we saw on the OnePlus 6T, the 7 would sport a slide-out selfie camera. On the back, meanwhile, the phone is expected to rock a triple-lens camera module, like most 2019 flagships. Well-known Samsung leaker Ice Universe posted an image on Twitter that shows an alleged OnePlus 7 case featuring design elements that seem to confirm the previous rumors: https://twitter.com/UniverseIce/status/1107554985594609664 As you can see in the image above, the phone that would fit inside this case would have a triple-lens camera on the back, considering the size of that camera cutout. Moreover, we have a cutout on the top side that will probably contain the slide-out selfie camera. Also worth noting is that there’s no opening on the top or bottom of the case that would accommodate the headphone jack. The leaker didn’t share additional information about the case or the OnePlus 7. We can only speculate that the phone will hit stores by June. OnePlus has not announced any media events for either the OnePlus 5G phone or the OnePlus 7, but it would make sense to see both devices unveiled at a press conference next quarter.

  • Google’s Inbox app will shut down the same day as Google+

    Golocal247.com news

    A pair of Google products that just never seemed to catch fire are both shutting down two weeks from today -- Google+, the company's once-beleaguered attempt at a social network to rival Facebook, and Inbox, the company's email app that brought a new approach and a slew of new features to managing email. About the latter closure, we already knew the day was fast approaching. Google confirmed in the fall that it would be pulling the plug on Inbox around this time, and users have been getting notifications letting them know that Inbox would finally be sunset on April 2."You can find your favorite Inbox features in the Gmail app," reads one such notification users have reported getting when they open the app. "Your messages are already waiting for you." That's a version of the same message that greets visitors to the Inbox page, at https://www.google.com/inbox/ \- "While we were here, we found a new way to email with ideas like snooze, nudges, Smart Reply and more. That's why we've brought your favorite features to Gmail to help you get more done. All your conversations are already waiting for you. See you there."In a Google blog post back in September, Gmail product manager Matthew Izatt suggested that the company decided to pull the plug on Inbox because it wanted to "take a more focused approach" to bringing the best email experience to users. Rather than having Gmail be the far and away leader and only bringing the most interesting new experiences to Inbox. "Inbox by Gmail has been a great place to experiment with new ideas like snoozing emails to later, as well as try the latest AI-powered experiences like Smart Reply, Nudges and high-priority notifications to help you stay productive," Izatt wrote at the time.Inbox's closure comes at the same time Google will also finally turn the lights out on Google+, the company's social network that it decided to shut down last year after disclosing a privacy-related bug.
