15 And it shall come to pass in that day, that Tyre shall be forgotten seventy years, according to the days of one king: after the end of seventy years shall Tyre sing as an harlot.
16 Take an harp, go about the city, thou harlot that hast been forgotten; make sweet melody, sing many songs, that thou mayest be remembered.
17 And it shall come to pass after the end of seventy years, that the LORD will visit Tyre, and she shall turn to her hire, and shall commit fornication with all the kingdoms of the world upon the face of the earth.(COULD THIS BE 70 YEARS AFTER ISRAEL BECAME A NATION IN 1948)(IF SO THIS SATANIC ONE WORLD WHORE CHURCH WILL MINGLE TOGETHER BY 2018)(AND NOW ISLAM AND CHRISTIANITY AND ALL RELIGIONS ARE MINGLING AS ONE PEACE-LOVE-JOY-GET ALONG RELIGION LEAD BY THE VATICAN RIGHT NOW 4 YEARS FROM THE 70 YEAR TIME WHEN ISRAEL BECAME A NATION).AND IN CONTROL OF JERUSALEM.

2 With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication,(VATICAN IN POLITICS) and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication.
3 So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.
4 And the woman (FALSE CHURCH) was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour,(VATICAN COLOURS)(ANOTHER REASON WE KNOW THE FALSE POPE COMES FROM THE VATICAN) and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication:
5 And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.

Pope says migrants' rights should override national security concerns-[Reuters]-By Philip Pullella-YAHOONEWS-August 21, 2017
VATICAN CITY (Reuters) - Pope Francis urged political leaders on Monday to defend migrants, saying their safety should take precedence over national security concerns and that they should not be subjected to collective deportations.His challenge to politicians, made in a comprehensive position paper on migrants and refugees, again appeared to put him at odds with the restrictive policies of a number of governments dealing with growing popular anti-immigrant sentiment."Solidarity must be concretely expressed at every stage of the migratory experience – from departure through journey to arrival and return," he said in a message ahead of the Roman Catholic Church's World Day of Migrants and Refugees.Calling for "broader options for migrants and refugees to enter destination countries safely and legally," he said the human rights and dignity of all migrants had to be respected regardless of their legal status."The principle of the centrality of the human person ... obliges us to always prioritize personal safety over national security," he said.This appeared to be a reference to fears voiced in many European countries that refugees inflows could lead to security problems in their host countries. He said it was necessary "to ensure that agents in charge of border control are properly trained."He called for "alternative solutions to detention" for illegal immigrants and said "collective and arbitrary expulsions of migrants and refugees are not suitable solutions".Francis said migrants should be seen as "a true resource for the communities that welcome them" and be given freedom of movement, access to means of communication, access to justice and everyday rights such as opening a bank account.Francis, an Argentine who has made defense of migrants a major plank of his papacy, has criticized anti-immigrant stands by national leaders including U.S. President Donald Trump. Last year, Francis condemned then-candidate Trump's intention to build a wall on the border with Mexico.Migrant children deserved particular protection, the pope said. They "must be spared any form of detention related to migratory status," guaranteed access to primary and secondary education and have the right to remain when they come of age.Francis's message immediately drew the ire of the right-wing Northern League party in Italy because it implicitly supported a controversial law proposal that would grant citizenship to children who are born in Italy of immigrant parents."The universal right to a nationality should be recognized and duly certified for all children at birth," the pope said.Northern League leader Matteo Salvini responded: "If he wants to apply it in his state, the Vatican, he can go right ahead."World leaders are due to commit their countries to two global compacts, one on refugees and the other on migrants, by the end of 2018 under the auspices of the United Nations.(Reporting By Philip Pullella; Editing by Richard Balmforth)

1 To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David. The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good.
18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;
19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.
20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.
24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:(HOMOSEXUALITY,AND ALL SEX SINS)
25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:(LESBIENS)
27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly,(SODOMITES) and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.(AIDS ETC)
28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;
29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,
30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
31 Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:
32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.
GOD CREATED THEM MALE AND FEMALE IN MARRIAGE
27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply,(HAVE LOTS OF CHILDREN) and replenish the earth,(HOMOSEXUALS CAN NOT REPLENISH THE EARTH WITH CHILDREN)(BY HAVING SEX WITH EACH OTHER) and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.
21 And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof;
22 And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.
23 And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.
24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.
4 And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female,
5 And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh?
6 Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.
Gay UCP staffer condemns Calgary Pride decision to deny party's parade application-[CBC]-August 20, 2017
A gay United Conservative Party staffer who was attacked online for saying he would attend the Edmonton Pride parade says he's not happy with Calgary Pride's decision to deny the newly formed conservative party's application to march this year. "I find it a little ironic that at the same time we're acting in a way and demanding respect and are calling for it, we won't allow our politicians and the people who are gay and are conservative to actually march and show their support, their tolerance and their acceptance for our community," said Cody Johnston, who spoke to CBC News at the Hope to Hate rally in Edmonton on Saturday night.'What kind of crap is this'-Johnston, who worked for the Wildrose Party prior to the merger of Alberta's conservative parties, received abuse from some Wildrose members in June after posting that he would attend Edmonton's Pride celebrations."What kind of crap is this that you're mailing out in the name of the Wildrose party," wrote one critic in a comment made public by Johnston in June."This party does not support this kind of lifestyle and we certainly don't promote it."Another wrote: "The intent of these events (is) to promote a sinful lifestyle. Do not give viewers the impression that this is Wildrose approved."-Lack of policy-Calgary Pride denied the UCP's application to march in this year's parade, citing a lack of policy."As your organization does not yet have clear policy in support of the gender and sexually diverse community, we would like to encourage a collaborative learning opportunity, prior to participating as parade entries," reads a statement released by the organization.Johnston said he doesn't agree with Calgary Pride's stance. "Some of us find this absolutely unnecessary. There are strong advocates within our party for human rights," he said."It's not just myself, I don't stand alone. There's many of us — our caucus, I don't speak for them at all, but I know many of them do as well, and they have been vocal opponents to any type of hate."-Individuals welcome-Jason Kingsley, president and executive producer of Calgary Pride, said no one from the organization was available for an interview on Sunday, but offered a written response by email.He said the fact the UCP won't be allowed to march this year does not mean individuals can't participate."Calgary Pride has not been in communication with Cody Johnston, and we have not informed them that they are not allowed to march in the Pride Parade as a member of the community," he wrote."We encourage Cody to participate and represent the gender and sexually diverse community. Individuals who wish to represent the newly formed United Conservative Party are asked to respect the political entry application process and criteria that have been in place for the last three years."

US and S. Korean troops start drills amid N. Korea standoff-[The Canadian Press]-YAHOONEWS-August 21, 2017
SEOUL, Korea, Republic Of — U.S. and South Korean troops kicked off their annual drills Monday that come after President Donald Trump and North Korea exchanged warlike rhetoric in the wake of the North's two intercontinental ballistic missile tests last month.The Ulchi Freedom Guardian drills are largely computer-simulated war games held every summer and have drawn furious responses from North Korea, which views them as an invasion rehearsal. Pyongyang's state media on Sunday called this year's drills a "reckless" move that could trigger the "uncontrollable phase of a nuclear war."Despite the threat, U.S. and South Korean militaries launched this year's 11-day training on Monday morning as scheduled. The exercise involves 17,500 American troops and 50,000 South Korean soldiers, according to the U.S. military command in South Korea and Seoul's Defence Ministry.No field training like live-fire exercises or tank manoeuvring is involved in the Ulchi drills, in which alliance officers sit at computers to practice how they engage in battles and hone their decision-making capabilities. The allies have said the drills are defensive in nature.South Korea's President Moon Jae-in said Monday that North Korea must not use the drills as a pretext to launch fresh provocation, saying the training is held regularly because of repeated provocations by North Korea.North Korea typically responds to South Korea-U.S. military exercises with weapons tests and a string of belligerent rhetoric. During last year's Ulchi drills, North Korea test-fired a submarine-launched ballistic missile that flew about 500 kilometres (310 miles) in the longest flight by that type of weapon. Days after the drills, the North carried out its fifth and biggest nuclear test to date.Last month North Korea test-launched two ICBMs at highly lofted angles, and outside experts say those missiles can reach some U.S. parts like Alaska, Los Angeles or Chicago if fired at normal, flattened trajectories. Analysts say it would be only a matter of time for the North to achieve its long-stated goal of acquiring a nuclear missile that can strike anywhere in the United States.Earlier this month, President Donald Trump pledged to answer North Korean aggression with "fire and fury." North Korea, for its part, threatened to launch missiles toward the American territory of Guam before its leader Kim Jong Un backed off saying he would first watch how Washington acts before going ahead with the missile launch plans.Hyung-Jin Kim, The Associated Press.
Wildfires in B.C. Cariboo combine to create province's largest blaze-[CBC]-YAHOONEWS-August 20, 2017
A handful of small fires in B.C.'s west Cariboo region have merged to create what is now the largest fire in the province.The B.C. Wildfire Service says the Plateau wildfire, northwest of Williams Lake, is estimated to be about 438,000 hectares and 130 kilometres from one end to the other. Fire information officer Kevin Skrepnek said the fire hasn't grown significantly in size, but several wildfires burning since about July 7 have now joined together. "It is a challenge just logistically and operationally when it's covering such a huge area," Skrepnek said."We've got two separate teams now managing it because it's such a large incident."The wildfire service says there are currently about 137 fires burning across the province. Twelve of them started Saturday. This year has been the worst wildfire season on record.The Hanceville-Riske Creek fire, the second-largest in the province, is now estimated at 227,000 hectares, but is now 25 per cent contained. And the Elephant Hill wildfire is estimated to be about 168,000 hectares.Skrepnek said a new wildfire near Harrison Lake has attracted a lot of attention because of all the smoke, but because of its remote location it's not considered to be a wildfire of note. Firefighters were bracing for the worst this weekend after Environment Canada forecasted wind and lightning for Friday and Saturday. But Skrepnek said they "dodged a bullet" when those conditions didn't turn out as bad as anticipated. However, he said another cold front bringing winds and lightning is expected for the Interior beginning next Wednesday.

Opinion-Macron goes east to test appetites for EU integration-By Tomas Prouza-AUG 21,17-EUOBSERVER
Prague, Today, 14:48-Emmanuel Macron starts his tour of "new Europe" on Wednesday (23 August). And, at least for some of these countries, it may redefine the role they play in the EU.The French president will have three goals during his trip to the East of the EU: deepen cooperation with those member states the West still wants to talk to, push harder to protect the French labour market and see who will support him in the upcoming restart of the French-German motor of European integration.Going to Romania makes perfect sense - both countries are historically close, Romania is a large non-member of the eurozone and could one day become a counterbalance to Poland among the "new" member states.Going to Bulgaria also makes perfect sense. Bulgaria holds the next six-month EU presidency and will thus manage the first discussions about the upcoming French-German proposals to deepen European integration.The third country in Macron's itinerary is Austria. It will take over the EU presidency from Bulgaria in the second half of 2018 and, as a eurozone member, will finalise the discussions about the single currency's reform - just in time before the European elections in early 2019.-The 'Austerlitz triangle'-Going to Austria will also allow Macron to meet the Czech and Slovak prime ministers outside the ever more problematic Visegrad group (V4), which also includes Poland and Hungary.The "Austerlitz triangle" - originally created by the Czechs to draw Austria more actively into Central Europe - may, in the end, help the Czechs to decide where they want to belong.After the clear and forceful statement of Slovak prime minister Robert Fico last week that the EU is more important for Slovakia than the V4, the Czechs remain the odd man out - not in love with illiberal democracy (at least not yet until the October election), but also not willing to move decisively forward with deeper European integration.Wednesday's meeting in Salzburg will therefore be a major Czech test.Macron will seek answers to three key questions, which will determine whether he will consider Czechs friends or foes.Firstly, he will want to know if Prague is willing to support deeper European integration and invest not only words but also political capital - or whether the Czechs will stand aside, no matter the damage it would cause to a country in the centre of Europe.Secondly, he will want to know whether the Czech Republic can accept a compromise for the revision of the EU's posted workers directive - and start behaving as a country that wants to compete through quality, not the cheapness of its labour force.Thirdly, Macron will want to know whether the Czechs really want to participate in big new projects such as common European defence.The Czech Republic was among the first to push this topic last summer and has enjoyed close cooperation in this area with the European Commission - but others are taking over this topic and are much more effective in realising the benefits available.-Slovakia came first-The next few months will be decisive in selecting who stays in the core of the European Union and who stays behind.Slovakia took the lead and Prague will have to decide quickly whether it wants to remain a reasonable partner in the centre of Europe, or whether it wants to return to the years of former president Vaclav Klaus and behave like a stubborn child.However, the times have changed: there are many others who want to cooperate and develop the European Union.The decision is ours, but nobody will beg us twice. The first test comes this Wednesday at the meeting with Emmanuel Macron.Tomas Prouza is a former State Secretary for European Affairs of the Czech Republic.
Killer robots' are not all about Terminator By Peter Teffer-AUG 21,17-EUOBSERVER
Brussels, Today, 18:00-Photo editors of news media worldwide must have had a field day on Monday (21 August), when selecting an image to accompany the news that technology experts warned the world of killer robots.Elon Musk, a billionaire CEO of space and electric car companies, and more than a hundred other technology company leaders published an open letter, warning against an arms race involving lethal autonomous weapon systems.Many media outlets decided to use still photos of one of the Terminator films, in which robots rise up against humanity. Others chose to use the scene of a malfunctioning law enforcement robot in the film RoboCop.While these images may help in terms of page views, Soren Transberg Hansen told EUobserver that this framing also leads to wider misunderstandings.Transberg Hansen is one of the 41 signatories that represent companies based in the EU.“It's a bit problematic that this Terminator picture comes up all the time, because then it's not taken seriously,” said Transberg Hansen, CEO of Brainbotics, a software company from Denmark.“That is not what it is about. We are nowhere near that level of technology,” he added.Although there is no universal definition of lethal autonomous weapons, the Danish robotics expert summarises them as “autonomous and semi-autonomous computer systems that can be used for triggering some armed device”.“The concept of using robots in warfare is not a particular new one, but the technology is advancing really fast,” said Transberg Hansen.“There is surprisingly little debate about some of the consequences.”With the letter, the signatories want to spur that debate.-Pandora's box-The text, only 278 words long, said that lethal autonomous weapons could become “the third revolution in warfare” - the first one being the creation of gunpowder, and the second the invention of nuclear bombs.“Once developed, they will permit armed conflict to be fought at a scale greater than ever, and at timescales faster than humans can comprehend,” the letter said.“We do not have long to act. Once this Pandora’s box is opened, it will be hard to close,” it went on.By some definitions, autonomous weapons are already in use.South Korea is said to have deployed several automatic guns that fire autonomously.Worldwide, it is the United States that is “leading the way” in this field, Transberg Hansen said.“It has to do with the funding programmes,” he argued.“Where does the money come from? In the US it very often comes from the military, whereas in Europe we have a civil funding scheme, Horizon2020, that has much more focus on civil problems.”Horizon2020 is an EU grant programme for research and innovation, which has funded several robotics projects for civil use.It would be “very unlikely” that such funds would be applied for military projects, said Rich Walker, another signatory of the open letter.Walker is managing director of the UK-based Shadow Robot Company, which builds robot hand prosthetics.He told EUobserver that it is “difficult to answer” which European countries are currently developing lethal autonomous weapons, because nations typically do not want to disclose their military plans.-Drones-While the EU has for decades had little to do with military issues, the EU commission has recently announced it would set up a European Defence Fund, which could finance projects with drones.A drone that can strike people based on facial recognition is technically feasible, said Transberg Hansen, although he noted that as far as he knew European countries are not developing such weapons.“Not officially. … But I wouldn't be surprised if some states would have some degree of autonomous decision-making,” he said, noting that in particular the fight against terrorism could spur politicians into moving towards using more robotics and artificial intelligence.A group of international experts was due to debate the issue this week in a United Nations forum in Geneva.However, the meeting was postponed. According to the open letter, “due to a small number of states failing to pay their financial contributions to the UN”.An EU official confirmed that a “lack of sufficient funds” caused the delay, but could not elaborate. The UN's press office did not immediately respond.

Toronto man who disappeared 3 years ago surfaces on Interpol list of feared ISIS suicide bombers-[CBC]-YAHOONEWS-August 20, 2017
A Toronto man is named on an Interpol list of individuals suspected to belong to an ISIS suicide brigade, according to a Canadian expert on radicalization and foreign fighters.Tabirul Hasib first disappeared five years ago when he booked a flight to the Middle East along with three other Toronto men: Malik Abdul (better known as Abdul Malik) and two others — Nur and Adib — whose last names are not known.What followed was a desperate attempt by the men's parents to keep them from falling into the hands of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS), beginning with missing person's reports to Toronto police. From there, officers with the RCMP's Integrated National Security Enforcement team became involved, asking tough questions of their families.When Abdul Malik's father learned the young men were headed to Syria, he and Nur's father got on a plane and managed to convince the four to come home, where he says they were repeatedly questioned by CSIS agents and RCMP officers.In July 2014, three of the men disappeared again.Recruited by Timmins-born ISIS fighter-Now, five years later, Hasib's name has surfaced on a list of people who could launch attacks in the West, says researcher Amarnath Amarasingam, a fellow at the George Washington University's Program on Extremism.CBC News first reported on Hasib in March 2015 when it was determined that he was among five people to have been recruited by Timmins, Ont.-born foreign fighter Andre Poulin, who died while fighting in Syria in 2013 at age 24. The first of the five to be recruited was a man named Mohammed Ali of Mississauga, Ont., who went by Abu Turaab, who left Canada in April 2014.At the time, Hasib's mother told CBC News she was devastated at her son's disappearance; she said the last time she'd spoken to him was November 2014."I asked him where he was and he wouldn't answer," she recalled in 2015. "And then I was overtaken by grief and couldn't speak to him."The list on which Hasib's name appears — along with his nom du guerre Abu Bakr al-Bangladeshi — was first reported on last month in The Guardian. The British newspaper said it was based on data collected by U.S. intelligence and circulated by Interpol on May 27.-Stark contrast to a former life-According to The Guardian, the list says those named "may have been trained to build and position improvised explosive devices in order to cause serious deaths and injuries. It is believed that they can travel internationally, to participate in terrorist activities."CBC News has not obtained an original copy of the list, but The Guardian reports that it contains the suspects' names, their recruitment dates, their last likely addresses, their mothers' names and any available photographs.Hasib's appearance on it comes as a surprise to Amarasingam.On ISIS entrance forms, Hasib is listed as someone who wanted to be a fighter, he notes — not someone looking to be a suicide bomber.The former Monarch Park Collegiate student and apparent graduate was active in his school's athletic program, participating in long-distance running competitions before enrolling in Centennial College. It's a stark contrast to his portrayal on the list as an aspiring bomber with a suicide brigade.There is also the possibility that Hasib's identity could have been used by someone else."When a lot of these travellers arrive in Syria and join the Islamic State, one of the first things they do is confiscate documents. We don't know if they get them back or if they're passed on or used for another purpose," assistant professor at Carleton University Stephanie Carvin points out.Whether Hasib, who would now be 25, is still alive is not yet known. At least two of his three friends are believed to be dead.In 2015, Abdul Malik's father told CBC News he received a phone call from Hasib saying his son had been killed along with one of the other two men around the time of a major ISIS offensive in the Syrian border town of Kobani."This likely means that he joined this so-called suicide brigade later on, possibly after his friends were killed," Amarasingam told CBC News. Meanwhile, Abdul Malik's brother Abdul Kadir, who court documents say also wanted to join the fight in Syria, has been on a peace bond since last year. For Amarasingam, the fact that the men were allegedly helped into Syria by Mississauga's Abu Turaab underscores how friendships formed at home became critical in their entry into extremist groups abroad."These trust networks established in Canada on the streets of Scarborough are playing out in war zones in the Middle East," Amarasingam said.-Rethinking the 'returnee assumption'-Hasib's appearance on the list also means the focus on Canadians returning home after travelling abroad to fight with ISIS is perhaps too narrow, Amarasingam says.According to a 2016 report by Public Safety Canada, 180 people with Canadian connections have travelled abroad to join ISIS and other terror groups, and at least 60 of them have returned."I think we are operating under the 'returnee' assumption, which says that Canadians will go back to Canada, French will go back to France and so on. It doesn't have to be that way," Amarasingam said. "Their goal is to attack the West."The majority of those on the Interpol list are of Iraqi nationality, says Amarasingam, a finding he calls worrying, as they may not be on the radar of most Western law enforcement.However, there are a handful of names from Western countries, says Amarasingam, including those from Germany, Switzerland, France and the Netherlands."There seems to be a fear that the majority of those on the list — Iraqis — may make use of the refugee flows into Europe," said Amarasingam."It pains me to say that because I know what some politicians will do with that kind of statement."The Canadian government would not confirm if it is aware of the Interpol list, saying it does not comment on national security operations.A statement from Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale's press secretary Scott Bardsley said only that "Canada monitors all potential threats and has robust measures in place to address them."
Spain: Police shoot man wearing possible bomb belt-[The Canadian Press]-YAHOONEWS-August 21, 2017
BARCELONA, Spain — Police outside Barcelona shot down a man wearing a possible explosives vest, the regional police force said Monday, as the manhunt intensified for the fugitive in the city's van attack.Regional police said officers shot a man wearing a possible explosives belt in Subirats, a small town 45 kilometres (28 miles) west of Barcelona, while investigating a "suspicious person" there. A bomb disposal robot was dispatched to approach the suspect, Catalan police said.La Vanguardia newspaper reported that the man shot was Younes Abouyaaqoub, 22, who has been the target of an international manhunt since Thursday's van attack in Barcelona.Authorities said Monday they now have evidence that Abouyaaqoub drove the van that plowed down the city's famed Las Ramblas promenade, killing 13 pedestrians and injuring more than 120 others.They said Abouyaaqoub, who was born in Morocco and has Spanish residency, also is suspected of carjacking a man and stabbing him to death as he made his getaway, raising the death toll between the Barcelona attack and a related attack hours later to 15.Another vehicle attack early Friday by other members of what Catalonia regional police have described as a 12-member extremist cell killed one person and wounded several others in the coastal town of Cambrils. That ended in a shootout with police, who killed five attackers.The Islamic State group has claimed responsibility for both attacks.La Vanguardia newspaper reported Abouyaaqoub was captured. Catalan police tweeted that there was an ongoing police operation in Subirats, but did not confirm if it involved the fugitive suspect.Roser Ventura, whose father owns a vineyard between the towns of Sadurni d'Anoia and Subirats, said he alerted the regional Catalan police when they spotted a car crossing their property at high speed."The police told us to leave the premises and go home. We heard a helicopter flying around and many police cars coming toward the gas station that is some 600 metres from the property," Ventura said.Earlier Monday, regional police chief Josep Lluis Trapero said investigators have "scientific evidence" showing Abouyaaqoub drove the speeding van in Las Ramblas and killed the owner of a hijacked sedan on Thursday night.He said the suspect walked through Barcelona for about 90 minutes after the van attack — through the famed La Boqueria market and nearly to Barcelona University — before hijacking the car. Abouyaaqoub is believed to have made his getaway in the stolen car with Perez's body inside.Perez was parking his car, a Ford Focus, in a lot between 6:10 p.m. and 6:20 p.m. Abouyaaqoub stabbed him before 6:32 p.m., put him in the car's rear seats and drove away, Trapero said.Trapero said Perez was already dead when Abouyaaqoub then rammed the car through a police checkpoint minutes later and police opened fire on his car.The suspect ran over a police officer as the car evaded the checkpoint. About 7 p.m., police found the car and Perez's body 3 kilometres (nearly 2 miles) away from the checkpoint, near Sant Just Desvern, a town west of Barcelona, but Abouyaaqoub was nowhere to be found.The Spanish newspaper El Pais published images Monday of what it said was Abouyaaqoub leaving the van attack site on foot. The three images show a slim man wearing sunglasses walking through the La Boqueria market.Abouyaaqoub escaped and has not returned to his home in Ripoll, said Trapero. The manhunt for him reaches well beyond Spain's borders. Four other suspects have been arrested.Regional authorities said Monday that 50 people were still hospitalized from both attacks, nine of them in critical condition.Abouyaaqoub was believed to be the lone attacker on the run by Sunday, but authorities hadn't confirmed his identity because they were having difficulty identifying the remains of at least two extremists who died Wednesday in an explosion at a house in Alcanar where explosives were being prepared.The explosion destroyed the house, but police found remnants of over 100 butane gas tanks and materials needed for the TATP explosive, which has been used previously by Islamic State militants.Those discoveries, and reports that Abouyaaqoub had rented three vans, suggested the militant cell was making plans for an even more massive attack on the city.Catalonia's regional president, meanwhile, said regional and local authorities rejected the Spanish government's suggestion to place traffic barriers to protect the Las Ramblas promenade because they deemed them "inefficient."Carles Puigdemont told La Sexta television the barriers wouldn't have prevented vehicles from entering the promenade at other points — and he said closing off Las Ramblas was impractical because emergency vehicles still needed access.On Monday, mourners were still weeping and hugging each other as they visited the main memorial site of the Barcelona attack. Crowds of people continued to lay flowers, candles and heart-shaped balloons at the top of Las Ramblas and at other smaller tributes where the van created such carnage.Las Ramblas regained some normality Monday, with throngs of people walking up and down, tourists arriving and residents going about their daily business."We have to stand strong in front of these betrayers, assassins, terrorists," said resident Monserrat Mora. "Because Barcelona is strong and they will not be able to prevail with us."_____Associated Press writer Ciaran Giles in Madrid and Lori Hinnant in Barcelona contributed.-Joseph Wilson And Aritz Parra, The Associated Press.
Protesters opposing a right wing group clash with Quebec City police-[The Canadian Press]-YAHOONEWS-August 21, 2017
MONTREAL — Tensions boiled over in Quebec City on Sunday, as police were pelted by beer bottles and smoke bombs set off in garbage cans in an ugly end to a weekend of pro and anti-immigrant rallies.The Quebec group La Meute, which is associated with the far right, called for a rally Sunday to protest the federal and provincial government's handling of the border crossers, but ended up having its members pinned inside a garage while counter-protesters demonstrated outside.Once the counter-protesters turned violent, the Quebec City police declared the protest illegal. Clashes ensued and at least one protester was arrested as officers tried to block access to the building where some of the La Meute protesters had taken refuge.By 6 p.m. the counter-protesters had dispersed and the members of La Meute, many of them carrying flags featuring the group's wolf-paw logo, emerged from the building to begin their protest.Television footage showed them marching in silence near Quebec City's legislature.The protests in the Quebec capital were far more tense than a demonstration a day earlier in Vancouver where thousands of people peacefully demonstrated in an anti-racism rally in response to reports earlier in the week that an anti-Muslim protest was planned. That latter rally didn't materialize.The rallies sprung up in the wake of last week's deadly events in Charlottesville, Va. in which one person was killed and others injured when a vehicle plowed through a crowd of anti-racism protesters.The Quebec events were largely spurred by the unprecedented number of people walking across the border to seek asylum.Almost 6,800 people showed up at an unofficial crossing from the U.S. into Quebec since Canada Day to claim asylum. By comparison, only 2,920 claims were filed in Quebec in all of 2015.When asked Sunday if the unprecedented number of border crossers was stoking anti-immigrant sentiments in the country, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau condemned "intolerant, racist demonstrations." He said he stood with millions of Canadians "who reject the hateful, harmful, heinous ideologies" that have sprouted across the country."The small minority, angry, frustrated group of racists don't get to define who we are as a country, don't get to tell others who we are and don't get to change the nature of the open, accepting values that make us who we are," Trudeau said in Montreal hours before the Quebec City demonstration.Federal authorities have said more than 3,800 people walked over the border into Quebec through the first two weeks of August, compared to the 2,996 who similarly crossed the border throughout all of July. Many are being housed in temporary shelters, including tents along the Quebec-New York border and inside Montreal's Olympic Stadium, while officials handle the sudden surge in asylum claims.Haitian nationals form the bulk of recent arrivals, believed to be driven by a change in U.S. policy that many fear would result in mass deportations. Canada lifted the temporary restriction on deporting Haitians last year, set up in the wake of the 2010 earthquake, and many were sent back to the island nation, Trudeau said.Trudeau urged Canadians to maintain trust in the immigration system and the officials who he believed were managing the situation. He said none of those walking across the U.S. border would receive any special advantages in their quest to come to Canada, stressing to Canadians and would-be refugees alike that border hoppers must go through the usual security checks and immigration evaluations.Quebec Premier Philippe Couillard tweeted about the violence in the provincial capital Sunday, saying that people have the right to demonstrate peacefully with zero tolerance for violence."We condemn violence and intimidation. We live in a democracy where respect must be the norm and not the exception."The Canadian Press.
