  • Fighting resumes in Yemeni port of Hodeidah after UN drafts truce deal news

    Intense fighting broke out in Yemen's port city of Hodeidah late on Monday, shattering a lull in violence that had raised hopes for a ceasefire between a Saudi-led coalition and Houthi insurgents as the United Nations tried to resume peace talks. Coalition warplanes conducted more than 10 air strikes on Houthi positions and battles could be heard in the "July 7" district, 2.5 miles away from the port, residents said. One resident said a medium-range missile had been fired from the city centre towards the district in the suburbs. The coalition led by Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates had last week ordered a halt in its offensive against the Houthi-held Red Sea port city, now a focus of the war, amid pressure from the West to end a conflict that has pushed Yemen to the brink of famine. The Iranian-aligned Houthi group announced early on Monday it was halting drone and missile attacks on Saudi Arabia, the UAE and their Yemeni allies, in one of its biggest concessions since it quit the southern port city of Aden in 2015.

Later Yemen information minister Moammar al-Eryani said the Houthis had "fired a missile towards Saudi lands", adding on his Twitter account the missile failed to reach its target and fell inside Yemen. Houthi authorities could not immediately be reached for comment on the report. Armoured vehicles of the Yemeni pro-government forces are seen driving past destruction in an industrial district in the eastern outskirts of the port city of Hodeidah  Credit: AFP It was not immediately clear whether the renewed fighting in Hodeidah would derail efforts by U.N. special envoy Martin Griffiths to salvage peace talks that collapsed in September when the Houthi delegation failed to show up. "The fighting is escalating and we can clearly hear machine guns and mortar fire. This is one of the worst nights we have experienced," said Hodeidah resident Mustafa Abdo. When asked about the fighting, a pro-coalition Yemeni military source told Reuters late on Monday that a ceasefire in Hodeidah would only start after the U.N. Security Council passes a British-drafted resolution on Yemen. It is not immediately clear when the text, submitted to the Security Council on Monday, could be put to a vote. Kuwait's U.N. Ambassador Mansour al-Otaibi told reporters he would propose amendments to the draft resolution as Kuwait was unhappy with "many things". He also said some council members didn't think it was the right time for a resolution. The draft resolution, seen by Reuters, calls for a halt to fighting in Hodeidah, a stop to attacks on populated areas across Yemen and an end to attacks on countries in the region. Malnourished Ferial Elias, 2, gestures as she is being weighed at a malnutrition treatment ward at al-Thawra hospital in Hodeidah Credit: Reuters It also calls for an unhindered flow of commercial and humanitarian goods across the impoverished country, including a large, fast injection of foreign currency into the economy through the Central Bank of Yemen and more aid funding. Western allies including the United States have called for a ceasefire ahead of peace efforts to end the nearly four-year-old war that has killed more than 10,000 people and caused the world's most urgent humanitarian crisis. Western countries have provided arms and intelligence to the Arab states in the alliance, but have shown increasing reservations about the war since the murder of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi at Riyadh's consulate in Istanbul last month. The Saudi-led coalition intervened in Yemen's war in 2015 to restore the internationally recognized Yemeni government that was ousted from the capital Sanaa by the Houthis in 2014. The conflict is seen as a proxy war between Riyadh and Iran. Griffiths said on Friday that Yemen's parties have given "firm assurances" they are committed to attending peace talks he hopes to convene in Sweden before the end of the year to agree on a framework for peace under a transitional government.

  • Carlos Ghosn, the auto world's 'cost killer' news

    Brazilian-born Carlos Ghosn, who is facing a pay scandal in Japan, has long stood out among the world's auto executives as a hard-nosed workaholic willing to take drastic measures to get companies back on their feet quickly. As head of the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi alliance, Ghosn has created an industrial behemoth, its combined 470,000 employees selling 10.6 million vehicles last year from 122 factories around the globe. It is not the first time Ghosn has gotten into hot water over pay, in particular a combined salary that makes him one of the highest-paid CEOs in France and one of the best-paid foreign executives in Japan.

    The friction threatens to further worsen already fragile relations between Islamabad and Washington, on-off allies who have repeatedly clashed about the war in Afghanistan and Pakistan's alleged support for Islamist militants. Khan, who assumed power in August and is known for his fiery anti-American rhetoric, said in a series of tweets that "record needs to be put straight on Mr Trump's tirade against Pakistan" over the weekend. Trump, during a Fox News TV interview aired on Sunday, defended cutting aid to Islamabad and also suggested Pakistani authorities knew Osama bin Laden's location prior to his killing by U.S. troops in a raid inside Pakistan in 2011.

  • Daily Digit: Majority of Americans believe abortion should be legal news

    Daily Digit is the story behind the numbers that make our world work. Today we’re looking at abortions and the right to choose. In 1973, the Supreme Court ruling on Roe v. Wade decriminalized abortion in the U.S. According to a new study by Pew Research Center, nearly 60% of Americans believe abortion should be legal in all or most cases. Unsurprisingly, the views about this issue vary widely between the political parties. Among the general public, the study shows there’s no significant difference in opinion between men and women. But support varies by race, with whites and blacks more accepting than members of Hispanic groups. And support is higher among individuals with higher education. Do you think abortion should be legal?

    “Drinking the Kool-Aid” is a phrase bandied about regularly in corporate life, especially when someone wants to take a dig at people with a cult-like belief in a business philosophy or those who fanatically follow a misguided leader. Nov. 18 marked the 40th anniversary of the mass murder-suicide of more than 900 people. Most of them were Americans who were members of a California-based cult called the Peoples Temple of the Disciples of Christ, run by the Rev. Jim Jones, and most died by drinking cyanide-laced Flavor Aid, which led to the Kool-Aid saying.

The Israeli government looked to be on the brink of collapse Monday morning after Mr Netanyahu refused demands from the Jewish Home party to give them control of the defence ministry.  Naftali Bennett, the leader of Jewish Home, called a press conference  where he was widely expected to announce he was resigning from the cabinet and bringing down the government.  Instead, Mr Bennett seemed to blink in his standoff with the prime minister. He said he would stay in the government despite Mr Netanyahu’s refusal to appoint him defence minister.  Mr Netanyahu took the defence minister’s post for himself, meaning he is currently serving as Israel’s prime minister, foreign minister, defence minister and health minister.    Naftali Bennett, leader of Jewish Home, said he would not bring down the government Credit: REUTERS/Amir Cohen In a speech at the defence ministry on Monday night, Mr Netanyahu said it would be “irresponsible” to bring down the government in the midst of a sensitive security situation and seemed to indicate a more hawkish approach towards Hamas in Gaza.  Mr Bennett, who has fiercely criticised Mr Netanyahu for not doing more to confront Hamas, said he had decided to step back from forcing elections after watching the prime minister’s speech.  “If the prime minister is serious in his intention, and I wish to believe his words yesterday, then I’m saying today: ‘We’re taking away all political demands and we’re going to help you in this huge mission to make sure that Israel will go back to prevailing.’”  Mr Bennett’s announcement seemed to be an abrupt about face from the Jewish Home’s position on Friday afternoon, when the party said there was “no possibility of continuing the current government” and called for early elections.  Mr Bennett seemed to acknowledge that he had lost face after Mr Netanyahu called his bluff but said his decision was in the best interests of Israel.     “I suppose that I will pay a political price in the next few hours or days. Never mind, you win some you lose some. It’s preferable that the prime minister win me over in a political battle than [the leader of Hamas] will prevail over the state of Israel.”  Bennett is not resigning. he's giving Netnayahu another chance— Raoul Wootliff (@RaoulWootliff) November 19, 2018 Mr Bennett’s decision makes it less likely that the government will fall immediately and that Israel will head to early elections.  But Mr Netanyahu is still leading a fragile coalition with only 61 seats in the 120-member Israeli parliament. It could still collapse over other political issues in the coming weeks.  Mr Netanyahu must call elections by November 2019. Israeli governments serve four-year terms but the country’s fractious coalition system means they rarely last more than three years.  The current government was formed after elections in 2015 and is already one of the longest-lasting governments in Israeli history.  Mr Netanyahu himself looks on course to become the longest-serving prime minister in Israeli history. If he remains in office until next summer he will overtake David Ben-Gurion, the country’s first prime minister.
