The police recovered the gun used to kill Louis-Charles and, according to news agencies, quoting a police spokesperson, they made an arrest.The information available is confused. Louis-Charles was initially pursued by three men in a pickup as he left a bank. According to some sources, Duperval was accompanying Louis-Charles. But other witness said it was Duperval who fired the shots that killed the journalist. The police have not offered more precise indications as to the possible motive.Pending further information from the police investigation, Reporters Without Borders offers its most sincere condolences to Louis-Charles’ partner and two daughters, to Radio Kiskeya co-directors Liliane Pierre-Paul and Marvel Dandin, and to all the other members of the staff at the station, for which he had worked for nearly 10 years.Louis-Charles was the first journalist to be killed in the Americas since the start of 2011.

Boat Club plan is water under the bridge

first_imgNewsLocal NewsBoat Club plan is water under the bridgeBy admin – September 24, 2009 894 . Email Advertisement Linkedin Print WhatsApp BORD Pleanala has given thumbs down to the redevelopment of Limerick Boat Club, leading to mixed reactions.The proposed development comprised a mixed-use scheme of leisure, recreation, office, civic uses, with the central focus being the replacement of the existing Boat Club, delisted by Limerick City Council from being a protected structure.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up It also included a new pedestrian bridge from Poor Man’s Kilkee to Wellesley Pier.Cllr Kathleen Leddin told the Limerick Post:.“This is a vindication of what I’ve been saying – that the proposed development was totally out of character with this very special area. It is the right decision – the majority of Limerick people, while wanting to see the boat club flourish, felt the plans submitted were totally out of keeping with this riverscape and the historical nature of Sarsfield Bridge”.The application had been opposed by the Thomond Archaeological and Historical Society, Greg Leddin of the North Circular Road, and the Shannon Rowing Club.Reasons given by An Bord Pleanala for refusal cite: height, scale and bulk, which “would interfere with views of the river Shannon and of protected structures, as seen from the quays, side streets and existing bridges and overdevelopment of a restricted island site”.It was also considered by the planning authority that the development would “materially and adversely affect the character of Sarsfield Bridge and its curtilage as a protected structure.”Disappointed with the result, Cllr Joe Leddin who is a member of Limerick Boat Club, said the planning application can be revisited.“The building was delisted and the pier rezoned from open space to commercial development – this result is disappointing but I’m looking forward to this being looked at again and a fresh application being resubmitted”.Eugene Falconer, honorary secretary of Shannon Rowing Club, said there is “absolutely no animosity between the Limerick Boat Club and ourselves.“I welcome the planning authority’s decision but feel the emphasis of the developer should have been to restore the boat club to its original style – a metal and glass building would have obstructed the view of King John’s Castle.”Mr Falconer said that Shannon Rowing Club, employed its own heritage architect and has spent considerable sums of money in maintaining their rowing club building in accordance with the standards relating to protected structures.“However, we welcome responsible development along the river frontage and look forward to the day when a proper walkway can be extended along the weir and if possible through our own property and on to the river frontage at Clohessy’s pub and restaurant -this would give the people of Limerick the opportunity to engage with the river”.

16-year-old arrested for allegedly making threats to gay bars, police say

first_imgiStock/Thinkstock(BOSTON) — A 16-year-old has been arrested for allegedly making threatening phone calls to two Boston bars, according to police.The teen allegedly threatened Alley Bar and dbar, both gay bars, ABC Boston affiliate WCVB-TV reported.The owner of dbar told WCVB that the bar got a “bigoted” phone call around 7:30 p.m. Friday from someone threatening to “shoot the place up.”The Alley Bar got a similar call that night, according to WCVB. In a Facebook post Saturday that has since been deleted, the Alley Bar wrote that it “received a call from somebody asking for directions to the bar.”“In the course of the conversation, the person threatened the bar,” the post continued. The call came from a landline in Peabody, about a 30-minute drive north of Boston, and the “person was easily identified,” according to the Alley Bar. The teen arrested is from Hampton, New Hampshire, according to the Boston Police Department.Customers told WCVB that they won’t let the threats stop them from enjoying their usual haunts.Brian Piccini, owner of dbarm, echoed that sentiment in a statement to the local station.“We will continue to show our defiance towards intolerance by not giving into threats by standing united at dbar,” Piccini said. “We will continue to work with the BPD to ensure a safe and friendly experience for all of our guests.”The teen was arrested in Seabrook, New Hampshire, on Friday night, police said. He had been wanted for outstanding warrants in juvenile court in Suffolk County, Massachusetts, for threats with serious public alarm and civil rights violations as well as additional warrants stemming from other charges in other counties, according to police.Boston Police are coordinating with the Seabrook Police Department to arrange for the teen’s return to Massachusetts for his arraignment.Police did not identify the teen.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

Coronavirus updates: Trump says increase of cases is ‘great news’

first_imgSamara Heisz/iStockBy WILLIAM MANSELL, ABC News(NEW YORK) — A pandemic of the novel coronavirus has now killed more than 520,000 people worldwide.Over 10.8 million people across the globe have been diagnosed with COVID-19, the disease caused by the new respiratory virus, according to data compiled by the Center for Systems Science and Engineering at Johns Hopkins University. The actual numbers are believed to be much higher due to testing shortages, many unreported cases and suspicions that some governments are hiding the scope of their nations’ outbreaks.Since the first cases were detected in China in December, the United States has become the worst-affected country, with more than 2.7 million diagnosed cases and at least 128,740 deaths.Here’s how the news is developing Friday. All times Eastern:7:50 a.m.: Face coverings required in Myrtle Beach ahead of holiday weekendAnyone in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, is now required to wear a mask or face covering, Mayor Brenda Bethune told ABC News’ Good Morning America.The mandate comes ahead of what Bethune expected to be a crowded holiday weekend, with more than 100,000 tourists visiting.Bethune said they should have enacted a mask order earlier, but didn’t have the authority until just last week. The order went into effect Thursday at 11:59 p.m. local time.“I wish we could have done it sooner, we acted on it as quickly as possible,” Bethune said.7:36 a.m.: Penn State student dies of COVID-19 complicationsA student at Penn State University died of respiratory failure and COVID-19, according to a statement from the university.Juan Garcia, a 21-year-old College of Earth and Mineral Sciences student from Allentown, died June 30, the university said.He is the first known Penn State student death related to the coronavirus.“We are profoundly saddened to learn about Juan’s untimely death during this pandemic,” vice president for Student Affairs Damon Sims said. “While I did not know Juan personally, we have learned through conversations with those closest to him that this young man had a remarkable spirit and was greatly loved. I know our entire campus community sends our deepest condolences to his family and friends as they grieve this unthinkable loss. It is a poignant reminder that no one among us is immune to the worst consequences of this virus.”Garcia was living off campus when he began to feel ill, according to the university statement. He then traveled back home to Allentown on June 19 and was tested for COVID-19 on June 20.He died 10 days later.7:18 a.m.: ‘Great news’: Trump says of increase in number of COVID-19 casesEven as Republican-led states roll back reopenings due to the significant rise in coronavirus cases and warnings from his own government that the pandemic is far from over, President Donald Trump continues to take an optimistic tone about the increase in diagnosed COVID-19 cases.“There is a rise in Coronavirus cases because our testing is so massive and so good, far bigger and better than any other country,” Trump tweeted late Thursday night. “This is great news, but even better news is that death, and the death rate, is DOWN. Also, younger people, who get better much easier and faster!”However, Adm. Brett Giroir, the man Trump appointed to oversee testing, testified at a House hearing Thursday that “this is a real increase in cases” and not just attributable to increased testing.“There is no question that the more testing you get, the more you will uncover,” Giroir said Thursday. “But we do believe this is a real increase in cases because of the percent positives are going up. So, this is real increases in cases.”Giroir said the U.S. is not flattening the curve right now.“The curve is still going up,” he testified.Trump’s positively also comes the same day the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention updated its coronavirus death toll projections for July. Forecasts indicate that between 140,000 and 160,000 total deaths nationally are expected by July 25. The CDC forecast also suggests that the number of new deaths will increase in 11 states.The U.S. reported 52,815 new coronavirus cases on Thursday. This week was the biggest week-over-week jump since the third week in March, when testing had just begun to increase in the United States.5:55 a.m.: Arizona bar let COVID-19 positive workers continue working, officials sayThe state of Arizona has seen an incredible rise in the number of COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations recently, forcing the state to pause its reopening. And now one bar is under investigation after it allegedly allowed multiple employees known to have tested positive for the coronavirus to continue working.Varsity Tavern, located in downtown Tempe, allegedly permitted both employees and managers to continue working after being diagnosed, according to the State of Arizona Department of Liquor Licenses and Control.After the state agency began its investigation, the business decided to close on July 1.Officials are still seeking to revoke Varsity Tavern’s license. The establishment has had its license suspended twice before, once in December 2018 and again in July 2019.The Department of Liquor also alleges that the bar management knowingly didn’t notify health officials that workers tested positive, didn’t enforce social distancing requirements and didn’t enforce mask-wearing requirements.Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey ordered bars, gyms, movie theaters, water parks and tubing operators, last Sunday to pause their operations until July 27 in a renewed effort to slow the spread of COVID-19 in the state.For the fifth day in a row, Arizona has surpassed its record number of hospitalizations on Thursday, with 2,938 patients currently hospitalized. At least 89% of ICU beds are now in use in the state.There are more than 87,000 diagnosed cases of COVID-19 in Arizona, with at least 1,764 deaths. Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

Campaigners hold ‘teach-out’ to protest cuts

first_imgA group of campaigners and protesters held a public event which they termed a “teach-out” in central Oxford on Monday afternoon.The event, which took place in Bonn Square opposite Westgate Shopping Centre, was organised by the Oxford University Campaign for Higher Education, and advertised with the tag-line “The Alternative to Austerity”. It aimed to criticise the government’s cuts to public services, and to support the public sector strike planned for Wednesday.The afternoon saw speeches from lecturers and campaigners on the NHS, pensions, and higher education.  These were interspersed with unprepared contributions from passers-by: shoppers making their way through the square were offered leaflets, and the chance to air their opinions over the microphone.Matt Myers, a fresher reading History at Wadham and one of the organisers of the “teach-out”, told Cherwell that the event was designed to give ordinary people a voice. He said, “Our political system is very élitist, as we only get the chance to have our say every five years when there’s a general election. Today is about allowing people to take part in a political process: it’s a model for the society we want to create.”When asked if he thought the event would have an impact on government policy, Myers said, “Events like this aren’t going to change the political situation in this country, but it’s still important to get people discussing these issues face to face, outside of the national newspapers and the BBC.”Rob Jackson, a London student who lives in Oxford and who also helped organise the event, said that it was important “to take people out of the university to hold lectures in public places and support the strikes on Wednesday.”He added, “My parents’ generation was the first to go to university – I don’t want to be the last. I wouldn’t have gone to university if fees had been £9,000 a year.”Student opinion on the “teach-out” was mixed. Imogen Jones, a third-year classicist at Corpus Christi, reacted positively to the event. She said, “Any peaceful protest against unnecessary and unfair cuts is a sign that the British people are engaged in politics, and are expressing their democratic rights.” Jones also praised the campaigners’ message, arguing, “What’s going on in higher education is terrible.”Nick Dickinson, a second-year History and Politics student, agreed that the event was “a legitimate form of protest”. Referring to the campaigners’ method of making passionate speeches to passers-by, he remarked, “It seems to work for those crazy gospel guys on Cornmarket!”However, not all students were equally convinced. Colette Weston, an Oxford graduate visiting for the day, questioned the name “teach-out”, commenting sarcastically, “What a great name…” Jan Willem Scholten, a third-year PPEist, said, “I think it’s admirable that people venture out into the cold for what is ultimately a futile way to spend Monday of 8th week.”last_img read more
