  • Three million Americans carry a handgun daily: study

    As many as three million people in the United States carry a loaded handgun daily, while nine million do so at least once a month, according to a US study Thursday. Most of these gun-toting Americans are young men, live in the south and say personal protection is a top reason for walking around with a deadly weapon, said the report in the American Journal of Public Health. "It was important to study handgun carrying because about 90 percent of all firearm homicides and nonfatal firearm crimes for which the type of firearm is known are committed with a handgun," said lead author Ali Rowhani-Rahbar, an associate professor of epidemiology at the University of Washington School of Public Health.

  • Air Berlin pilots suspended after saying 'dignified goodbye' with fly-by stunt at Düsseldorf Airport

    Golocal247.com news

    The pilots of an Air Berlin flight that performed a fly-past during the insolvent carrier's last long-haul flight to its hub in Düsseldorf have been suspended, the airline said on Wednesday. When coming into land from Miami on Monday morning, the A330 jet flew low across the runway, then pulled up and banked sharply to the left before landing on its second approach. Pilots are trained in such "go-around" procedures for aborted landings, but the manoeuvre was unusual and the German aviation authorities are investigating. "In aviation, safety always comes first. We are taking the incident very seriously," an Air Berlin spokesman said. The Air Berlin pilot had requested permission from the tower to make a left turn should a go-around be necessary. "We wanted to make a mark, a dignified and emotional goodbye," the Air Berlin pilot was quoted as saying by German broadcaster ZDF. His identity was not given. Another pilot for a different carrier told Reuters that a go-around should be performed only for operational or safety reasons. "Electing to do one if it is known not to be required adds an unnecessary risk," he said. Several videos of the incident can be viewed online. In one, control tower staff can be heard exclaiming as the plane flies past, with one person saying: "We are all in awe." The Air Berlin spokesman said the videos raised questions that had to be answered as part of the investigation. Air Berlin filed for insolvency on August 15 and Lufthansa has signed a deal to buy large parts of its operations. The airline will fly its final short-haul flights under the Air Berlin brand at the end of this month.

  • Top Syrian general killed by Isil landmine near Deir Ezzor

    Golocal247.com news

    A senior Syrian commander and one of President Bashar al-Assad’s most trusted generals has been killed during an operation against Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil). Brig Gen Issam Zahreddine, a field commander in the elite Republican Guard, died after a convoy he was travelling in hit a landmine on Wednesday morning as they drove through Hawija Saqr near Deir Ezzor province.  Zahreddine, who was in his late 50s and instantly recognisable by his full grey beard, had been leading 7,000 troops in the battle to retake the eastern city of Deir Ezzor from the jihadists.  He also led government offensives against armed opposition in the central Homs province and near the capital, Damascus, in the earlier days of the conflict. Issam Zahreddine addresses his troops in Deir Ezzor His death will be a major blow to the regime, which has lost huge numbers of high-ranking soldiers and generals over the course of the six-year war.  He was a controversial figure who was pictured last year posing next to hanging corpses which appeared to have been tortured before being cut into pieces.  In another, he is seen walking beside a line of bodies so long he and some of his troops stopped before they even reached the last one. He is named in a lawsuit filed by the family of the late veteran war correspondent Marie Colvin, who was killed in an artillery attack in Baba Amr district of Homs.  Zahreddine had been in charge of an operation to root out rebels in the central city at the time in February 2012.  The Colvin family alleges that Zahreddine, after learning of the Sunday Times journalist’s whereabouts, ordered a targeted artillery attack on the makeshift opposition media centre where she had been staying.  The regime has denied the attack on the American was deliberate.  And last month the major gave an interview warning Syrian refugees not to return to the country, saying the army would “never forgive or forget”. "If you know what is good for you, none of you return,” he said in a Syrian state TV interview. The commander later apologised and said his comment was misinterpreted, and he was only referring to Isil and rebel fighters who had killed Syrian troops. He was remembered online on Wednesday by government supporters as a hero who gave his life for his country, but by opposition backers as a war criminal. Several top Syrian, Russian and Iranian commanders have been killed in recent months in fighting around Deir Ezzor.  The province is the last remaining stronghold of Islamic State, which has put up a tough fight to retain control of the strategic oil-rich region.  With the defeat of Isil in its former capital, Raqqa, this week, the battle against the group will now centre on Deir Ezzor where it has now largely been confined and under attack from both Syrian troops and US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces.
