The images were impounded after the owner of the photographic laboratory alerted police, but they were later posted on a Sri Lankan website.On Tuesday a magistrate sentenced the trio to six months in prison with hard labour, suspended for five years – which means they will not actually serve any time in jail. The court also levied a small fine on them.They were convicted under a section of the Penal Code which outlaws deeds intended to wound or insult “the religious feelings of any class of persons” through acts committed in, upon or near sacred objects or places of worship. In 2010 two Sri Lankan Muslim traders were given suspended jail sentences for selling keyrings containing an image of Buddha.That same year Sri Lanka denied a visa to the R&B star Akon, who had been due to perform a concert. It happened after public protests over one of his music videos which briefly showed scantily-clad women dancing in front of a Buddha statue.There is currently widespread excitement in Sri Lanka as the Kapilvastu Relics – believed to be bones of Lord Buddha – have been brought to the island from India for a two-week tour of temples. (BBC) Mistreatment of Buddhist images and artefacts is strictly taboo in the country. The incident is alleged to have taken place at a temple in central Sri Lanka.Police spokesman, Ajith Rohana, told the BBC the French party had visited the laboratory to get pictures printed. The pictures show the travellers posing with Buddha statues and pretending to kiss one of them. A Sri Lankan court has given suspended jail terms to three French tourists for wounding the religious feelings of Buddhists by taking pictures deemed insulting.Two women and one man were detained in the southern town of Galle after a photographic laboratory alerted police. Most of Sri Lanka’s majority ethnic Sinhalese are Theravada Buddhist. Last month there were reports that five Arabs visiting the island were arrested for distributing “literature insulting to Buddhism”.

Hailing from Pothuvil in Ampara district of Sri Lanka, Haq had arrived in Tamil Nadu in 2012 and stayed in Kadayanallur in Tirunelveli district for one and a half years, when he joined a mosque and learnt ‘asrat’, the police said. The Q Branch police in India arrested a Sri Lankan Tamil, who attempted to clandestinely leave for Sri Lanka by taking an illegal boat ride from Mandapam, The Hindu newspaper reported.Acting on a tip-off, a Q Branch police team, headed by Inspector of Police R. Kennedy, detained the Sri Lankan Tamil, identified as P. Abdul Haq (27), when he tried to flee to Talaimannar by engaging a boat from Mandapam. He was handed over to the local police who arrested him under Sections 14(a) and (c) of the Foreigners Act, 1946, read with 5(i) (a) (b) of the Foreigners Order, 1948 and Sections 419 and 116 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC). He was remanded in judicial custody by a local Magistrate on Sunday and was to be taken to Chennai to be lodged at the Puzhal Central Prison, the police said. He later worked in a mosque at Ragunathapuram in Pudukottai district, though his three-month visa expired long back. As he could not use his passport to fly back to Sri Lanka, he tried to get a fresh Indian passport, the police said.After managing to obtain an Elector Photo Identity Card (EPIC), he had applied for the passport but had to leave urgently as his father fell ill and arrangements had been made for his marriage in his hometown, the police said. Through a contact in Madurai, he reached Mandapam.

The Parliamentary Opposition has taken note of statements made by Natural Resources Minister, Raphael Trotman in relation to a two-year hydrology risk study being conducted on the Amaila falls project, but maintains that there are still many unanswered questions.Opposition leader Dr Bharrat JagdeoTaking into account that studies were conducted on Amaila falls to test the feasibility of making it a hydro power station, Opposition Leader, Dr Bharrat Jagdeo on Thursday stressed that there is limited information on the new study.The hydrology risk study is slated to be conducted, after which Government will be presented with a report by the end of this year. This is according to Trotman recently during a parliamentary meeting.“So I would like to know who is doing this study. Who contracted the people to do this study and at what is the cost?” he questioned.Jagdeo asserted that these are important details that the Government should seek to share with the Opposition especially since it is the first time his party is hearing about this new study.Additionally, he noted that details of this study comes just months after State Minister, Joseph Harmon was quoted in the press saying that the hydro project- which was initiated under the People’s Progressive Party- has been canned.“Harmon went on to explain that they couldn’t find an investor and who will give them the money…a lot of extraneous things, like the World Bank is not funding it,” he recalled.The former President further stated that Harmon’s statement points to his lack of knowledge on the financial model used for the Amaila Falls Hydro project.Only recently, Minister Trotman affirmed that the project is actually a renewable energy option for Government, but says funding is an issue.Trotman was at the time answering questions before the Natural Resources Committee. Asked about the conflicting statements on hydro, he denied that the project was ever off the table.The project, which was the brainchild of Jagdeo, formed part of the Low Carbon Development Strategy.An artist’s impression of the Amaila Falls Hydropower ProjectThe independent, facts-based assessment of the Amaila Falls Hydropower project in Guyana, which was done by an independent Norway-based engineering and design consultancy firm, Norconsult AS, found that the project is the only realistic path for Guyana to achieve greater levels of renewable energy.It was outlined that the Amaila Falls could have been almost operational by now and consumers could have been close to seeing the end to expensive and unreliable electricity.The project, which would have been the largest Foreign Direct Investment in the country’s history, had the potential to reintegrate the country with the global capital markets for the first time in over 40 years.The incumbent Administration when in Opposition was vehemently against the project, even withholding support from the National Assembly in 2013 for legislation pertaining to the project.The major investor, Sithe Global subsequently pulled out from the US$858M Project, citing a lack of national consensus on the part of the Parliamentary opposition.

His skilful management, powers of motivation and measured approach have been reflective of the rich experience we always knew he would bring to Leicester City.“His warmth, charm and charisma have helped transform perceptions of the club and develop its profile on a global scale. We will forever be grateful to him for what he has helped us to achieve.“It was never our expectation that the extraordinary feats of last season should be replicated this season.“Indeed, survival in the Premier League was our first and only target at the start of the campaign. But we are now faced with a fight to reach that objective and feel a change is necessary to maximise the opportunity presented by the final 13 games.” https://the42.ie/3255853 Feb 23rd 2017, 8:10 PM Source: Gary Lineker/Twitter Claudio Ranieri.

Two traffic police were killed in an attack by radical Islamists in the southern Russian city of Astrakhan, the regional governor said Tuesday, the day after a suicide bomber allegedly hit the Saint Petersburg metro.”Last night, a group of radical Islamists… carried out a brazen attack on employees of the traffic police,” Alexander Zhilkin said in a statement.”The culprits opened fire on them with firearms and fled. Unfortunately, two traffic police officers died on the spot.”Astrakhan regional police said the incident occurred at about 1:00am local time (2200 GMT) after traffic police were dispatched to the scene of an accident.The attackers were in one of the cars involved in the accident.The police statement made no mention of the attackers’ motives or identity.The Astrakhan region lies on the Caspian Sea and also borders the restive Caucasus region of Dagestan.While attacks against police regularly occur in Russia’s Caucasus, they are much rarer in other regions.

Patrick Semansky/APAn FDA contract worker, collects food and supplies from a food pantry in Baltimore. In the face of a Trump administration proposal that could cause 3 million people to lose federal food assistance, mayors from 70 cities are pushing back.The Trump administration’s proposal to push millions of people out of the federal food stamp program would punish some of the country’s neediest, including children, seniors and people with disabilities, according to mayors from 70 American cities who have sent a letter to an administrator for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program.Under a new rule proposed in July by the Agriculture Department, more than 3 million people would lose their food assistance. The mayors say the move would also hurt their local and regional economies.The change to SNAP is aimed at plugging what critics say is a loophole that allows states to give benefits to people whose savings and other assets the Trump administration says should make them ineligible for food stamps.Anti-poverty groups view the shift as part of a broader push by the Trump administration to peel people off government assistance. Republicans who back the move say the new rules are needed in order to curb abuse of federal safety net programs.Through the change, the Trump administration aims to cut spending by some $2.5 billion a year. Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue has pledged the plan will also preserve “the integrity of the program.” But dozens of mayors counter that shaking up the eligibility requirements will exact a toll on some of the nation’s most vulnerable people.“This proposal will put children’s health and development at risk by removing their access to healthy school meals; and harm our economy by reducing the amount of SNAP dollars available to spur regional and local economic activity,” wrote the city leaders, in a letter sent from the U.S. Conference of Mayors.The mostly Democratic mayors who signed the letter come from around the country, from Fremont, Calif., to Houston, Texas, and from Edina, Minnesota, to Philadelphia.“Our nation cannot remain globally competitive if our children do not have enough to eat; if our citizens do not have access to affordable health care; if housing and other basic needs are priced out of reach; and if adults who are willing and able to work cannot find jobs that will help them support their families,” the mayors wrote.The majority of the people who receive SNAP are children, the elderly or people who struggle with a disability. Government statistics show that the average monthly benefit per person is $135 a month.Federal food assistance is a pathway out of desperate circumstances, the mayors argue.“SNAP is not only a critical resource in the fight against hunger and food insecurity, but also lifts people out of poverty,” their letter states.Since the new federal rule has been open to public comment, more than 4,000 people have weighed in on the proposal, with many strongly opposing the Trump administration’s move.“It’s horrifying to think that millions of people will not have food stamps! I encourage the American government to act for the people that need a hand up from desperate situations,” wrote Kala Nyx.“I am a 55 year old white male from rural Texas,” wrote Johnny Dotson, who said he has known many families who have depended on SNAP. “You should be ashamed of yourselves if you believe it is ok to make children go hungry for ANY reason. You may think there will be so few children negatively affected it would be worth the cost, but you are wrong.”Others, like Joal Devendorf, embraced the Trump administration’s proposed move.“We should close loopholes such as the SNAP loophole. Temporary Assistance is fine; ongoing dependence is not,” he wrote.The mayors, meanwhile, are fretting about how the overhaul to food assistance will impact their regions’ local economies, saying those who receive benefits spend more money in their communities, as part of a “multiplier effect” that boosts overall economic activity, including job creation.Citing the USDA’s own statistics, the mayors wrote, “during times of economic downturn, every additional $5 dollars in SNAP benefits generates up to $9 dollars of economic activity.”The Agriculture Department did not immediately respond to a request for comment. The department can move forward with the new rule in about a month, after the 60-day public comment period ends on Sept. 23.Copyright 2019 NPR. To see more, visit https://www.npr.org. Share

Plans for the £1 billion renovation of Heathrow Airport’s Terminal 2 (T2) have been unveiled to the public.Due to replace the existing terminal, the new building will open in 2013 and is expected to have a capacity of 30 million passengers a year by 2019.According to airport owner BAA, the new T2 building will also feature a range of ‘green’ energy measures such as solar panelling on the roof that will help it to reduce its carbon footprint by 40 percent.It said that the expansion of T2, which will become home for Star Alliance airlines, would be essential to the continued competitiveness of Heathrow.Speaking to the BBC, Malcolm Robertson, a spokesman for BAA, said: “The creation of Terminal 2 is about creating more and better terminal capacity, it’s not related to the need for a third runway.”However if Heathrow is to remain competitive and to continue to provide a great economic asset to London, the South East and the UK as a whole, then it is going to require a new runway capacity.”First opened in 1955, T2 is Heathrow’s oldest terminal building and will close by the end of 2009, ready for work to begin on the new project.ReturnOne wayMulti-cityFromAdd nearby airports ToAdd nearby airportsDepart14/08/2019Return21/08/2019Cabin Class & Travellers1 adult, EconomyDirect flights onlySearch flights Map
