A powerful car bombing close to the office of the provincial police chief in southwestern Pakistan has killed 12 people and wounded 24, officials say.
The June 23 blast in Quetta, the capital of Balochistan Province, was heard across the city, shattering windows of nearby buildings, police spokesman Shahzada Farhat said.
"It is not known yet if it was a suicide blast," Balochistan Home Secretary Akbar Haripal told RFE/RL. “But we can't rule it out. It is possible. We are in very initial stages and we are investigating."
Five of those killed were police officers.
Wasim Beg, a spokesman at a local hospital, said some of the wounded were in critical condition.
TV footage showed several badly damaged cars and a road littered with broken glass.
No one claimed responsibility for the attack.
Resource-rich Balochistan, bordering Afghanistan and Iran, has been plagued by sectarian violence, Islamist militant attacks, and a separatist insurgency that has led to thousands of casualties since 2004.

Four Arab countries led by Saudi Arabia have issued a list of demands for ending their boycott of Qatar, including requiring Doha to shut down the Al-Jazeera network and cut most ties with Iran.......

Qataris have been stockpiling food because of the boycott by four other Arab countries.


Four Arab countries led by Saudi Arabia have issued a list of demands for ending their boycott of Qatar, including requiring Doha to shut down the Al-Jazeera network and cut most ties with Iran.
The demands were presented to Qatar by Kuwait on June 22. The Associated Press reported that the list included 13 items, including demands that Qatar sever all ties with the Muslim Brotherhood, Hizballah, Al-Qaeda, and the Islamic State group.
Saudi Arabia, Egypt, the United Arab Emirates, and Bahrain cut relations with Qatar this month over allegations that Doha funds terrorism, and they are now giving Qatar 10 days to comply with their demands.
They are demanding that Qatar shut down all diplomatic posts in Iran, kick out any members of the Iran's elite Revolutionary Guard in Qatar, and only conduct trade and commerce with Iran that complies with U.S. sanctions, the AP said.
They also want Doha to close Turkey's military base in Qatar. 
Doha did not have any immediate reaction to the list. Nor did the United States, where Secretary of State Rex Tillerson had encouraged the Arab countries earlier this week to provide a list of demands that was "reasonable and actionable."

A parade marking Al-Quds International Day takes place in Tehran on June 23.


Tens of thousands of people are taking part in state-sponsored anti-Israeli rallies across Iran to mark the annual Al-Quds Day.
Some protesters set Israeli and U.S. flags on fire while others chanted "Death to America" and "Death to Israel," Iranian media reported on June 23.
The day was established by the founder of the Islamic republic, Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, to show support for Palestinians and opposition to Israel, which Iran does not recognize.
Marchers in Tehran were converging from various points of the city onto the Friday Prayers ceremony at Tehran University.
Iranian leaders, including President Hassan Rohani, are expected to address the crowd later.
Authorities in Tehran also displayed three surface-to-surface ballistic missiles, including the Zolfaghar missile that Iran said it used this week against Islamic State targets in Syria.
Similar demonstrations are being held in cities across Iran, according to state media.

The speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives Paul Ryan has said he wants to move quickly on a Senate bill imposing new sanctions on Russia and Iran even as congressional committees worked to resolve a procedural issue blocking the bill.

Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives Paul Ryan says he supports sanctions.


The speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives Paul Ryan has said he wants to move quickly on a Senate bill imposing new sanctions on Russia and Iran even as congressional committees worked to resolve a procedural issue blocking the bill.
"We just want to get moving on it," the Wisconsin Republican told reporters on June 22. "I support sanctions."
Representative Ed Royce, the chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, "has indicated he wants to get moving on this quickly, and we want to honor that," Ryan added.
The bill passed the Senate 98-2 last week, but encountered a roadblock in the House this week when the parliamentarian found it violated a requirement in the U.S. Constitution that any bill raising government revenues must originate in the House.
Congressional aides said sanctions or fines against other countries like those in the bill could be interpreted as affecting U.S. government revenues.
Ryan said that procedural issue must be resolved before the House can take action on the bill.
Kevin Brady, the Republican chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, told reporters he sent the Senate a suggested change in the legislation that would resolve the procedural problem.
He said the proposed change would allow the Senate to start a "very simple process to take the bill back, make the change, and then move it forward."
The leaders of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee said the change did not appear to substantively alter the legislation and their staff was reviewing it to determine how to move ahead.
Some lawmakers said the White House was concerned about a provision of the Senate bill that would require Trump to obtain congressional approval before easing any sanctions on Russia.
Secretary of State Rex Tillerson urged Congress last week to ensure that the sanctions package gave Trump flexibility to adjust sanctions if Russia's behavior in Ukraine, Syria, or other areas targeted by sanctions improved.
White House spokesman Sean Spicer said the White House was seeking to work with Congress on some parts of the bill.
But Democrats warned against weakening the bill, which was intended to punish Moscow for allegedly meddling in the U.S. election campaign last year as well as for its aggression in Ukraine and arming of Syria.
"House Republicans' effort to obstruct and weaken the Senate's bipartisan Russian sanctions bill is not only irresponsible; it endangers our national security and threatens our democracy," House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi said.
Ryan said he did not yet know if the House would send the bill through committee markup and amendment, a process that could take months but which is the House's prerogative if legislators wish to fashion their own bill.
Besides imposing new sanctions on Russia over its alleged meddling in the presidential election, Ukraine, and Syria, the Senate bill would cement existing sanctions on Russia into law.
The bill would also impose mandatory sanctions on people involved in Iran's ballistic-missile program and apply terrorism sanctions to the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps.

The United States has accused Russia-backed separatists in eastern Ukraine of a campaign of "violence and harassment" against international monitors aimed at preventing them from reporting truce violations.......

OSCE monitors visit the village of Sakhanka in the Donetsk region of Ukraine this month.


The United States has accused Russia-backed separatists in eastern Ukraine of a campaign of "violence and harassment" against international monitors aimed at preventing them from reporting truce violations.
U.S. State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said on June 22 that Washington was "deeply concerned" about the situation, describing the separatists as "Russian-led, Russian-funded, and Russian-trained."
Nauert said that on June 20 separatist forces fired at retreating Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) vehicles carrying monitors, and in April an American paramedic accompanying the monitors was killed when his truck hit an explosive.
"The incidents are part of a broader effort to keep the international community from seeing what is happening in eastern Ukraine," she said.
"We call on Russia to use its influence to end this campaign of intimidation and honor its commitment to allow free, full, and safe access to the OSCE monitors."
A new cease-fire between Ukrainian troops and the separatists is due to come into effect on June 23. 
Previous truces in the conflict that has killed more than 10,000 people since April 2014 have broken down.

Kim Dotcom trolls Obama with badass photo of Putin standing in rain


Kim Dotcom trolled former US President Barack Obama with a photo of Russian leader Vladimir Putin standing in the pouring rain without an umbrella in sight.
The internet entrepreneur, wanted by the US over the now-defunct file-sharing website, Megaupload, compared the photo to one of Obama standing under an umbrella held for him by a US Marine.

View image on TwitterView image on Twitter
The Obama photo, taken in 2013 during a press conference with Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, sparked controversy at the time as some observers pointed out it was against regulations for male marines to hold umbrellas.
Dotcom, a vocal critic of Obama, took the opportunity to highlight again the moment after a photo of Putin braving the rain during a wreath-laying ceremony on the Day of Memory and Sorrow emerged on Wednesday.
Twitter users responded to Dotcom’s tweet by sharing other badass photos of the Russian leader, known for his macho persona.
@2christian @Tim63712838 @KimDotcom That pic is hilarious. Putin does training wheels too. But again, better than BO.
Others, however, defended Obama sharing a picture of him walking in the rain without cover, comparing it to a photo of current President Donald Trump holding an umbrella.
Dotcom’s tweet garnered more than 2,500 retweets, causing the Twitteratti to post several snaps of other world leaders with and without umbrellas.
Kim Dotcom is accused of criminal copyright infringement and other charges, such as money laundering, racketeering and wire fraud, by the US Department of Justice.
In 2012, New Zealand authorities raided his mansion as part of the American-led global shutdown of his Hong Kong-based file sharing company.
Earlier this year a New Zealand court ruled that he could be extradited to the US. Dotcom is appealing the decision.

A federal appeals court has ruled that members of the US Navy can now, in a US court, pursue their lawsuit which alleges that they were exposed to radiation while providing aid after the nuclear crisis in Fukushima, Japan.......

USS Reagan crew can sue Japanese company over Fukushima nuclear disaster – court


A federal appeals court has ruled that members of the US Navy can now, in a US court, pursue their lawsuit which alleges that they were exposed to radiation while providing aid after the nuclear crisis in Fukushima, Japan.
On Thursday, the US Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco ruled in favor of the sailors who were exposed to dangerous levels of radiation while providing humanitarian aid after an earthquake destroyed the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant in Japan. 
The ruling allows sailors, who were aboard the ship at the time, to pursue their lawsuit against the state-owned Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) for misrepresented radiation levels in the surrounding air and water. The lawsuit alleges that TEPCO misled them about the extent of the radiation leak. 
An investigation into the incident found that TEPCO did not take proper precautions to prevent the incident and described the meltdown as a “manmade” disaster. TEPCO later admitted the meltdown could have been avoided. 
The Japanese government set up the Nuclear Damage Claim Dispute Resolution Center to deal with all the claims against TEPCO. So far, a total of $58 billion has been paid out to victims of the disaster.
However, TEPCO asked the courts to dismiss the case from the US sailors under the “firefighter’s rule,” which states that first responders cannot sue those who caused the emergency.
Up to 75,000 US citizens could have been affected by the meltdown, according to former Democratic senator and presidential candidate John Edwards who is presenting the case in court.
“These members of the United States Navy deserve their day in court, and they will get it,”said Edwards. “These American heroes served the United States and were innocent victims in a nuclear disaster that never should have happened. This case has broad US interests, both because of our nation’s long-standing relationship with Japan, and because plaintiffs in this case are members of the US military harmed while on a humanitarian mission.” 
The sailors continue to suffer from blindness, thyroid cancer, leukemia and brain tumors, Edwards said.
Attorneys are seeking $1 billion in damages from TEPCO and several other defendants, including General Electric, EBASCO, Toshiba Corp. and Hitachi.

Venerdì giornata di tensione nei corridoi di Palazzo Chigi. Il Consiglio dei ministri era pronto ad approvare i movimenti di alcuni ambasciatori, così come disegnato da Angelino Alfano. Poi è intervenuta la manina di Maria Elena Boschi ed il ministro degli Esteri è tornato in ufficio con la lista rimasta chiusa nella cartella.

Il primo movimento era il trasloco di Pasquale “Quito” Terracciano da ambasciatore a Londra a Mosca, al posto di Ragaglini destinato alla pensione. La lotta si è aperta per chi doveva sostituire ''Quito''. Il posto era stato promesso a Raffaele Trombetta, sherpa di Palazzo Chigi. All’ultimo momento, però, è spuntato Giandomenico Magliano, ambasciatore a Parigi.

E già qui, Maria Elena ha storto il naso. Il blocco è arrivato quando Alfano voleva nominare ambasciatore a Tunisi, sensa averne i titoli, il suo vice capo di gabinetto Lorenzo Fanara. Guarda caso nato anche lui ad Agrigento (come il ministro), guarda caso nel 1970 (come il ministro) e casualmente anche lui laureato nella stessa università di Angelino.

Con l'occasione, la sottosegretaria ha anche stoppato con i suoi dentoni aguzzi anche la nomina ad ambasciatore a Lisbona del consigliere diplomatico di Dario Franceschini. Alla capitale portoghese punta il figlio d'arte Uberto Vanni d'Archirafi.

Nulla di penalmente rilevante a carico dei calciatori, bene ripeterlo, in uno spaccato di vita in cui ancora una volta entrano in contatto mondi diversi. Anche quest’anno erano pronti a partire per Ibiza, magari per raggiungere quelli che nelle chat su Facebook vengono definiti come loro «amici fraterni», amici di cui andare fieri. Erano pronti a raggiungere Ibiza, per festeggiare assieme a vip di mezzo mondo l’inizio di una nuova stagione estiva e mettere in circolo soldi su cui la Procura di Napoli oggi vuole vederci chiaro.

Sono stati bloccati da arresti e perquisizioni e ora la loro vita è sotto gli occhi di tutti, anche grazie al facile spulcio di profili Facebook decisamente aperti. Ed è così che dagli arresti di tre imprenditori con attività a Posillipo, ma ritenuti testa di ponte della camorra di Ponticelli, viene fuori uno spaccato di vita che abbraccia anche altri circuiti del mondo cittadino. Già, perché i tre imprenditori arrestati vantavano rapporti di amicizia, o comunque una conoscenza profonda con alcuni calciatori del Napoli, i big dell’undici azzurro che hanno letteralmente fatto impazzire la città e il tifo partenopeo a suon di gol e spettacolo.

Ed è così che dagli arresti e dalle perquisizioni messe a segno questa notte dalla Dia del capocentro Giuseppe Linares emerge uno spaccato di vita fatto di feste e cene, di tavolate e incontri tra presunti esponenti della camorra imprenditoriale e alcuni giocatori del Napoli.

Calciatori che - bene chiarirlo - sono completamente estranei alle accuse che vengono mosse agli imprenditori finiti oggi nelle maglie della giustizia, del tutto inconsapevoli di aver frequentato locali e ristoranti oggi ritenuti di origine sospetta.

Andiamo a vederle queste foto: ce n’è una di pochi mesi fa, in cui uno degli imprenditori arrestati stanotte è in posa accanto a Diego Armando Maradona, nella sua recente visita a Napoli, in occasione dello spettacolo organizzato al San Carlo. Una sorta di maledizione per l’ex pibe de oro, che a distanza di trent’anni dalle foto in cui compariva in una vasca con i fratelli Giuliano di Forcella, si ritrova accanto a personaggi su cui oggi gravano pesanti sospetti.

Foto in cui Reina la fa da padrone. Uno degli imprenditori arrestati ringrazia pubblicamente Paolo Cannavaro (anche per lui una bella foto di gruppo), per avergli presentato il portiere azzurro, mentre è sempre uno dei titolari del locale di Posillipo finito sotto sequestro a ricordare un particolare della carriera di Reina, a proposito del suo attaccamento alla maglia: «Grazie a Paolo ho conosciuto te grande uomo oggi mio amico fraterno e forse anche di più»; poi decide di aggiungere un particolare che farà “incazzare” Reina: «Ero a casa sua, la Roma lo chiamò e gli propose più soldi del Napoli e lui non aveva nemmeno il contratto…», dice per far capire che alla fine Reina ha preferito rimanere a Napoli piuttosto che accettare le lusinghe di una diretta concorrente.

Una discoteca posillipina al centro delle indagini, la bella vita dei calciatori del Napoli finisce in un atto giudiziario, anche se il racconto di questo abbraccio tra i due mondi, quello sommerso degli imprenditori in odore di camorra e quello patinato dei vip azzurri, va raccontato anche alla luce delle indicazioni del calendario.

Per mesi monitorati dalla Dda dei procuratori aggiunti Filippo Beatrice e Giuseppe Borrelli, sembra che i calciatori abbiano ridotto le loro uscite notturne da almeno un paio di anni, con l’arrivo a Napoli di mister Maurizio Sarri.

Una stretta della vita sociale che deve aver fatto bene al rendimento azzurro, almeno rispetto all’ultima parte della gestione Benitez, e che ha salvato i calciatori napoletani da ulteriori immagini decisamente imbarazzanti, alla luce degli arresti di oggi e delle indagine sulla Posillipo infiltrata dall’ex clan Sarno di Ponticelli.
