"The situation is chaotic," Amanullah Kamrani, deputy head of the Ghazni provincial council, told AFP from Kabul.

  • Greek cat sanctuary 'overwhelmed' with emails after advertising paid job on idyllic island with 55 felines

    Golocal247.com news

    The job advert on Facebook sounded almost too good to be true. A living wage, a car, a lovely house to live in - bills paid - with a terrace overlooking the Aegean, just a short walk from a pristine beach on the Greek island of Syros. The job? Caring for up to 70 cats amounting to four hours of work per day. Nearly 1,000 Britons applied for the role after the announcement posted by Greek cat sanctuary owner Joan Bowell on Facebook last week went viral. Her inbox is brimming with applications from hopeful cat caretakers convinced they are the “responsible, reliable, honest, practically inclined” person with a heart of gold she is looking for. Veterinarians, doctors, even refugees applied.     “We were doing a quiet thing on a Greek island -  but no more,” Mrs Bowell’s husband, Richard, 65, told The Telegraph. The job involves just four hours work per day Credit: Facebook Mrs Boswell, a Briton, and Mr Boswell, from Denmark, moved to the island of Syros seven years ago.  They found kittens thrown away in garbage cans, bony cats relying on scraps, feral and injured cats that needed care. The couple began taking in strays and working with local veterinarians to improve the health of village cat colony and the overall island population. They backed a sterilisation project, funded dental operations, had sick eyes removed, and nursed motherless kittens through the night. If cat dies, Mrs Bowell buries them and places a stone. “Now you hardly see distressed cats on Syros,” Mr Bowell says. “It all started here.” Sanctuary owners Joan and Richard Bowell have been overwhelmed by the interest in the advert Credit: Facebook Today the sanctuary is home to anywhere from 55-70 cats, all led around by the resident caretaker cat, Snowy. Mrs Bowell founded God’s Little People Cat Rescue charity to support the sanctuary with donations and started a Facebook page. At first her posts got a handful of likes as she tried to find homes for cats on Syros. “Then she posted this, it went viral and people have been phoning from all over the world.”   This fall, the couple plans to return New York, where Mr Bowell has work commitments with the United Nations.  They have drafted five volunteers across Europe to narrow down the 3,000 applications from people offering to take their place – mostly Americans and British nationals – to a pool of 50-100.  The job also comes with a car, bills paid, and a stunning view of the Aegean Credit: Facebook There are those that start out with: “I’ve always wanted to live on a Greek island,” those who boldly proclaim: “I am your person” and those who say: “What is behind this?” and want to know more about the sanctuary’s philosophy.   “Those are the ones that catch our attention,” Mr Bowell said of the latter. “Sometimes whispers are best heard.” The position comes with a salary up to €600 (£536) a month, with bills, housing and veterinary expenses paid, starting November 1, after a voluntary two-week transition period in October.   There are bonus points for veterinarian skills, cat psychology skills for handling feral or non-sociable felines.

    A 3-year-old boy found buried at a New Mexico desert compound died in a ritual to "cast out demonic spirits," but his extended family believed he would "return as Jesus" to identify "corrupt" targets for them to attack, prosecutors said in court on Monday. Prosecutors' account of an exorcism-like ritual, allegations of weapons training for children and references to martyrdom and conspiracy were aimed at persuading a judge to deny bond for the five adults charged with child abuse in the case. Defense attorneys said prosecutors sought to criminalize their clients for being African-Americans of Muslim faith.

  • Exclusive: Saudi Arabia's PIF has shown no interest in bankrolling Tesla buyout - sources

    DUBAI/RIYADH/LONDON (Reuters) - Saudi Arabia's Public Investment Fund (PIF) has shown no interest so far in financing Tesla Inc CEO Elon Musk's proposed $72 billion deal to take the U.S. electric car maker private, despite acquiring a minority stake in the company this year, two sources familiar with the matter said. The 47-year-old investor and engineer stunned financial markets on Tuesday when he said on Twitter that he was considering a take-private deal for Tesla, an auto manufacturing pioneer that developed the world's first luxury all-electric sedan car. Beyond amassing a stake of just below 5 percent in Tesla, the sovereign wealth fund has poured tens of billions of dollars into technology investments, including $45 billion in SoftBank Group Corp's Vision Fund over five years.

Fears about contagion in other economies, particularly emerging markets, sparked a sell-off across the board Monday but there were healthy recoveries in Asian business.

  • Ships 'not willing to save Mediterranean migrants' say aid groups as Aquarius seeks safe harbour

    Golocal247.com news

    The NGO rescue ship the Aquarius has called on European governments to offer it safe harbour after rescuing 141 migrants from the Mediterranean, saying it has been stranded at sea for more than two days. Medicins Sans Frontieres (MSF) and SOS Mediterranee, which jointly operate the Aquarius, said they had contacted authorities in Italy, Malta, Tunisia and Libya following Friday’s rescues but have been denied a place to disembark. They called for urgent humanitarian assistance for those on board, most of whom were said to be from Somalia and Eritrea, were weak and malnourished, and included 67 unaccompanied minors. “What is of utmost importance is that the survivors are brought to a place of safety without delay, where their basic needs can be met and where they can be protected from abuse,” said Nick Romaniuk, Search and Rescue Coordinator for SOS Mediterranee.  The NGOs said that those on board reported encountering five boats which did not offer assistance, a "disturbing development" that suggested Italy's ban on rescue ships was deterring crews from helping migrants in distress. The Aquarius found itself at the centre of a major diplomatic standoff in June when both Italy and Malta turned it away, leaving it at sea with 630 migrants onboard for more than a week before it was able to dock in the Spanish port city of Valencia.  It is unclear whether Spain’s prime minister, Pedro Sanchez of the centre-left PSOE, will repeat that offer. He has since allowed a Spanish NGO boat, the Open Arms, to dock on three occasions. But he has been accused of failing to ensure local authorities have the resources to cope with the arrivals.  Spain last month overtook Italy as the biggest European landing point for migrants, a development blamed largely on the clampdown in the Central Mediterranean.  SOS Mediterranee and MSF said Europe was increasingly putting the coordination of rescues in the hands of Libyan authorities, but the latter did not have the "capacity" and had simply told it to contact others. Mr Sanchez this weekend met Angela Merkel, the German chancellor, to discuss the crisis. They laid out a proposal of EU aid to north African governments, improved European coordination on asylum and efforts against "racist tendencies" towards migrants in some member states.

  • U.N. says it has credible reports that China holds million Uighurs in secret camps

    (This version of Aug. 10 story corrects name of expert in paragraph 12, fixes typographical error in paragraph 3) By Stephanie Nebehay GENEVA (Reuters) - A United Nations human rights panel said on Friday that it had received many credible reports that 1 million ethnic Uighurs in China are held in what resembles a "massive internment camp that is shrouded in secrecy." Gay McDougall, a member of the U.N. Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination, cited estimates that 2 million Uighurs and Muslim minorities were forced into "political camps for indoctrination" in the western Xinjiang autonomous region. "We are deeply concerned at the many numerous and credible reports that we have received that in the name of combating religious extremism and maintaining social stability (China) has changed the Uighur autonomous region into something that resembles a massive internment camp that is shrouded in secrecy, a sort of 'no rights zone'," she told the start of a two-day regular review of China's record, including Hong Kong and Macao.

    A New Zealand tourist holidaying on the Indonesian island of Bali has reportedly been arrested for attempted murder after what he claims was an accidental incident with a scooter driver.  Matty Isiah, a security guard who lives in western Australia, was leaving a night club in the resort town of Kuta in the early hours of Sunday morning when he struck the driver while putting out his arm to flag down a taxi, reported the New Zealand Herald.  A co-worker, Regan Jhonson, claimed that although the incident was a misunderstanding, he had been arrested for attempted murder.  "He came out of a nightclub to flag a taxi, he's put his arm out and a scooter's ridden up along the footpath and driven straight into his arm and straight away he was mobbed by locals because they thought he had hit the rider and then he was arrested," he said.  Bali, Indonesia: where to go in pictures Mr Jhonson alleged the Kuta Police had requested $7,000 for Mr Isiah's release, threatening to process him in prison if the money did not emerge. The police reportedly said the money was for the other person involved in the collision. Wendy Clark, Mr Isiah's mother, told Ngaarda Media she was looking for a lawyer who could help the family. "It is very distressing to see my son in a one-metre cell on the floor. There's urine and it's flea infested. "He's not allowed a seat, he hasn't got a bed and I am not leaving Bali until I get my baby out of there," Ms Clark said. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade said the New Zealand embassy in Jakarta was providing consular assistance.
