  Moscow taxi mounts pavement and injures people 'wearing Mexico colours'   Sat, 16 Jun 2018 12:39:07 -0400

Moscow taxi mounts pavement and injures people 'wearing Mexico colours'A taxi mounted the pavement near Moscow's Red Square on Saturday evening, ploughing into a group of people and injuring eight. Early reports say that Mexico fans are among the injured, as some of those involved were wearing Mexican team colours. Police said the driver likely lost control of the vehicle and has been detained. Two ambulances quickly arrived at the scene and seven people were taken to hospital.  There were no immediate details on the severity of the pedestrians' injuries, although a medical source told local media that none of them were grave. The driver, a citizen of Kyrgyzstan, said he did not act on purpose, according to Moscow authorities.  The taxi lost a bumper and toppled a parking sign during the incident Credit: Twitter Interfax media reported sources saying the driver may have been drunk. The accident took place on Ilinka Street, about 650 feet from Red Square and Moscow's famous GUM shopping arcade. Russia is currently hosting the World Cup and Moscow is one of 11 Russian cities where tournament games are being played.  Although it did not initially appear to be deliberate, it will hardly lessen fears of a terrorist threat during the World Cup.  Ambulances take injured people away in the aftermath of the accident Credit: Twitter Russia has earned the enmity of jihadi groups with its bombing campaign against the Islamic State and rebels in Syria, and Islamists have reportedly threatened fans at the tournament. Last year, 16 people were killed when a lone wolf attacker blew himself up in the metro in St Petersburg, the World Cup host city near where the England team is based for the tournament.  An ambulance parked near the damaged taxi that injured seven when it mounted the pavement  Credit: Jack Stubbs/Reuters Moscow has struggled for years with a simmering Islamist insurgency in the Caucasus region, where it fought two bloody wars in Chechnya.    Tens of thousands of police have been deployed to World Cup cities, along with national guardsmen and Cossacks, the traditional caste of horse warriors. The taxi is towed away from the scene of the crash, just a few hundred yards from the Kremlin Credit: Reuters Anti-aircraft missiles and drone-jamming devices have been protecting the skies near stadiums.  The influx of police into World Cup cities has been so great that police in at least one other city have worried crime could go up there.

  Just call your dad on Father's Day before posting a photo of him on Facebook   Sat, 16 Jun 2018 13:10:52 -0400

Just call your dad on Father's Day before posting a photo of him on FacebookThis Father’s Day, call your dad.  Your dad doesn’t care how many likes you collect on Instagram or Facebook. Just pick up the phone and call the guy.  SEE ALSO: You haven't heard of this masculinity movement, but it's exactly what men need right now Listen, I get it — you want to show all your friends what a total stud your dad was in his 20s or share a cute childhood, family photo where you look completely adorable and your sister is in peak awkward stage.  But before you post a photo on social media, let him hear your voice. Imagine how many likes this guy would get on Instagram. My sister is going to be so mad. He wants to talk to you, not spend 30 minutes trying to figure out how Instagram works, only to see 12 "❤️❤️❤️omg so cute!" comments from people he doesn't know.  SEE ALSO: Dad jokes, ranked You might say "but I don't have much to talk to my dad about." Have you ever talked to an 8-year-old? They say some stupid things and your dad used to listen to you talk all the time. As a kid, I spent hours explaining my high-level thoughts about American Gladiators, and you know what? He just listened (and then took me to Costco for a $1 hot dog).  Even better than just talking? Ask him a question. Ask him about his day, his life, the latest season of Blue Bloods, whatever — you'll learn something. And maybe you'll discover an even better story to share about him for the 'gram. WATCH: Dads everywhere will love the Avengers themed Thor toolbox

  Eid ceasefire proved 'wide support' for Afghan Taliban, they say   Sun, 17 Jun 2018 13:32:05 -0400

Eid ceasefire proved 'wide support' for Afghan Taliban, they sayBy Rupam Jain and Qadir Sediqi KABUL (Reuters) - The Afghan Taliban said their three-day Eid ceasefire, which ends on Sunday, proved the unity of their movement and its "wide national support" as the presidential palace extended its own ceasefire with the militants by 10 days. Taliban fighters headed into cities across Afghanistan over the weekend as they celebrated their Eid cessation of hostilities with feasts, hugs and selfies, raising questions about what happens when their ceasefire ends at midnight (1930 GMT) on Sunday. "The announcement (of the ceasefire), implementation and the wide national support and welcome of the Mujahideen by the people proves that the demands of the Islamic Emirate and the nation are identical – all want the withdrawal of foreign invaders and establishment of an Islamic government," they said.

  Israel strikes at launchers of burning kites from Gaza Strip   Sun, 17 Jun 2018 08:55:19 -0400

Israel strikes at launchers of burning kites from Gaza StripThe Israeli military said its aircraft struck a vehicle early Sunday belonging to someone who sent burning kites into Israel from Gaza. No one was injured in the strike, but it marks an escalation in Israel's response to a phenomenon that has wreaked havoc on agriculture in southern Israel in recent weeks. Burning kites set fields ablaze in more than a dozen locations on a hot, windy, dry Saturday. Gazans began flying kites with burning rags attached to them during the mass protests against the Israeli and Egyptian blockade of the territory. Israeli troops have fired on the protesters, killing more than 100 since the weekly demonstrations began in March. The Israeli military says militants have used the protests as cover to carry out attacks and to try to breach the border fence. The Islamic militant group Hamas, which rules Gaza, has led the protests. Israel says it holds Hamas responsible for the fires. While Israel has been mostly successful in thwarting militant infiltration attempts and rocket fire, it has struggled to stop the low-tech kites drifting into its territory. A parliamentary committee last week said the fires have destroyed more than 6,000 acres of land in recent weeks, causing some £1.5 million in damages. Israel says it plans to deduct from tax funds it collects for the Palestinians to compensate farmers. A fire burns in scrubland in Israel near the Gaza Strip, in an area where Palestinians have been causing blazes by flying kites and balloons loaded with flammable material Credit: AMIR COHEN/REUTERS The military says its drones have been able to shoot down more than 90 per cent of the kites and flaming balloons, and that it will continue targeting them. Cabinet Minister Naftali Bennett compared the kites to rockets, and said the response should be the same. "We should not wait until Israeli citizens are hurt and only then wake up," he said. In the West Bank, meanwhile, Israeli police evicted Jewish settlers from 10 homes they had built in violation of Israeli law. Israel captured the West Bank along with east Jerusalem in the 1967 war and today about 600,000 settlers live in those areas. Most of the international community considers settlements to be either illegal or illegitimate. Israel's Supreme Court often rules that structures built illegally have to be evacuated and demolished. Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said 11 officers were wounded in scuffles and that police arrested six protesters for violence.
