  • Utrecht shooting: Turkish-born suspect, 37, arrested after three killed in 'possible terror attack'

    Utrecht shooting: Turkish-born suspect, 37, arrested after three killed in 'possible terror attack'Dutch police have arrested a 37-year-old man suspected of shooting three people dead and wounding five others in a possible terror attack on a tram. The Turkish-born suspect, Gökmen Tanis, was on the run since Monday morning, forcing vast parts of Utrecht city – including mosques, schools and businesses – into lockdown. Although the local terror threat level was set to a maximum of five, as the day progressed increasing evidence on social and international media suggested the attack could have been personally motivated. During the eight-hour manhunt, residents were advised to stay indoors and police were sent to secure mosques across the Netherlands. In an unusual move, police had named and released photographs of Mr Tanis, a local resident born in Turkey, who is thought to have unleashed a volley of shots on a tram in a quiet, residential area before fleeing in a stolen, red Renault Clio. Police named Tanis as someone they wanted to speak to following the shooting  Local chief public prosecutor Rutger Jeuken said that early indications suggested a terror attack. “The first interpretation of what happened according to witness statements and the evidence we have found suggest a terrorist motive, although we cannot rule out other motives,” he said in a press conference in the evening. But the police acknowledged in a Twitter feed of press releases that other reports in Dutch and Turkish media suggested that there might have been personal motives, possibly targeting a woman who could have been a step-sister or ex-partner. Mr Tanis had reportedly been sentenced for an attempted killing in 2013 after he fired shots towards an apartment building.  Armed police were scrambled to a manhunt in Utrecht after three people were killed in the attack Credit: BPC/WENN He was in court two weeks ago accused of a rape in 2017, and had previously been arrested for attempted vehicle theft, driving under the influence of intoxicants and spitting at police. Mark Rutte, the prime minister, said in a press conference that all flags on government buildings would hang at half-mast tomorrow: “It is still unclear what the motive behind the attack was: terrorist or otherwise, we don't know and we can't exclude anything. "[Whatever the] motive, three people have died and three are fighting for their lives. The whole world is feeling this, and we should not think of this as less than it is.” The shooting took place at the 24 Oktoberplein area, and eye-witnesses said that after shouts of “shooter”, people fled from the tram. The area was quickly shut off by police, three trauma helicopters were called, and armed police and anti-terror forces flooded the streets. Greet Oldenlam, 65, said that she saw paramedics carry a body covered with a bloodstained sheet from the tram. “I can’t believe this happened in my city,” she said. “[It] seems like nowhere is safe now. Those poor people attacked in the tram on a quiet Monday.” Utrecht tram shooting - locator map A witness on the tram, Daan Molenaar, told Dutch broadcaster NOS: “I saw someone lying behind the tram and thought she had been ridden over. "People came out of cars running towards her. Then a shooter came running with a pistol up, and heard people shouting ‘shooter!’ I ran.” As schools and businesses closed their doors, inhabitants stood outside their homes, looking up dumbfounded as helicopters and drones flew over the area.

In a press conference on Monday evening, police announced that a second suspect had also been arrested during the day. “Today is a black day for our city,” said mayor Van Zanen.

  • Putin in Crimea as Russia marks five years since annexation

    Putin in Crimea as Russia marks five years since annexationRussian President Vladimir Putin flew into Crimea on Monday to celebrate the fifth anniversary of Moscow's annexation of the strategic peninsula from Ukraine which was condemned by the West but remains popular among Russians. Russian flags flew in the main city of Simferopol while posters celebrating Crimea's "return to its native land" hung in shop windows and on public transport. Putin used the visit to officially open two new power stations on the Black Sea peninsula, which was almost wholly dependent on electricity from Ukraine before the annexation.


  • New Zealand's biggest online classifieds site bans sale of semi-automatic guns

    New Zealand's biggest online classifieds site bans sale of semi-automatic gunsIn the aftermath of the Christchurch terrorist attack, New Zealand is looking to step up on gun control.It's led to the country's biggest online marketplace, Trade Me, stopping the sale of semi-automatic firearms until it receives further instruction from the government.SEE ALSO: Facebook has removed 1.5 million videos of the New Zealand shooting, but questions remain"We have listened to public sentiment following Friday's terrorist attack in Christchurch and decided to remove all semi-automatic firearms sales and parts associated with those weapons today," Trade Me's statement reads.The company said it would aim to remove listings for semi-automatic firearms by the end of Monday. New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern pledged that the country's gun laws "will change" following the tragedy, and said on Monday she would start discussing the issue within the government."Rightly ... people are asking the question 'why is it that someone with a firearms licence in New Zealand can obtain a military-style semi-automatic weapon?'" Ardern told Radio NZ.The New Zealand Police Association has backed the action on the country's gun laws."Jacinda Ardern has said emphatically that New Zealand's gun laws will change and that now is the time for that change," Police Association president Chris Cahill said in a statement online."I absolutely agree with her and I believe many New Zealanders will be aghast that in our country someone can amass a cache of weapons like that discovered in this Christchurch tragedy."Unlike neighbouring Australia, whose famously strong gun policy resulted in a ban on semi-automatic firearms, New Zealand allows private possession, as long as the owner is approved by police and licensed. As per Gunpolicy.org, New Zealand has double the guns per person than Australia, and the number of privately-owned guns is estimated to be at 1.5 million. There have also been calls for a gun register, which isn't required in New Zealand for most firearms, according to the BBC.

India's Mukesh Ambani provides 'support' to brother Anil as debt paid offIndia's richest man Mukesh Ambani, who controls oil-to-telecoms powerhouse Reliance Industries that is now worth many times the troubled business group run by his younger brother Anil, appears to have offered some kind of support to ensure Anil paid off a 5.5 billion rupees ($80 million) debt. If Anil didn't pay the debt, then he had been threatened by India's Supreme Court with a prison term. The nature of the backing and how it was delivered is unclear, but in a statement Anil Ambani thanked his billionaire brother "for standing by me during these trying times, and demonstrating the importance of staying true to our strong family values by extending this timely support".

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

    Turkey's Erdogan calls on New Zealand to restore death penalty over shootingPresident 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.


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

    Mesut Ozil sparks new political row over wedding invite for Turkish presidentThe 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.”

American officials referred to it as the Saudi Rapid Intervention Group, the Times said.

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

    Leak teases OnePlus 7 with a new all-screen design that ditches the notchIf 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+

    Google’s Inbox app will shut down the same day as Google+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. That's also happening on April 2, and this Reddit thread explains how the Internet Archive has been racing to preserve all public Google+ posts before that shutdown gets under way.
