Palestinian prisoners are released

Posted on » Wednesday, August 14, 2013

JERUSALEM: Israel last night freed 26 Palestinian prisoners as part of the deal that allowed peace talks to resume.

The prisoners were driven out of a jail in white minibuses with tinted windows.

About half were taken straight to Gaza, and the rest to the West Bank.

Palestinian and Israeli negotiators began direct talks two weeks ago for the first time in three years.

Another round of talks is due to begin in Jerusalem today.

Israel agreed to release the 26 long-term prisoners as the first of 104 Palestinian and Israeli Arab inmates to be freed over the next few months.

The men were driven away from the Ayalon prison complex late at night in vehicles with darkened windows.

Small groups of Israeli protesters had gathered outside the prison and jeered as the buses drove off.

Relatives and friends of the freed men were gathered on the frontier with Gaza and the West Bank, with bands playing bagpipes parading through flag-waving crowds.

Earlier, an Israel High Court rejected an appeal against the release by relatives of some of the Israelis killed by the freed prisoners.

The men were arrested between 1985 and 2001.

Peace talks between the Palestinians and the Israelis broke down three years ago in a dispute over settlement building in territory Palestinians seek for a state.

Israel’s announcement on Sunday of plans to expand settlements drew Palestinian anger but no formal threat to withdraw from negotiations, whose resumption was driven by intensive shuttle diplomacy by US Secretary of State John Kerry.

The US is seeking to broker a “two-state solution” in which Israel would exist peacefully alongside a Palestinian state created in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip, lands captured in the 1967 Middle East war.

The US, European Union and UN have condemned Israel’s announcement of plans to build 2,000 new settler homes. Most world powers regard all the settlements as illegal.


Street battles in Cairo

Posted on » Wednesday, August 14, 2013

CAIRO: Supporters and opponents of ousted President Mohamed Mursi battled in the streets of downtown Cairo yesterday, showing Egypt remained dangerously split six weeks after the army overthrew him in response to mass unrest against his rule.

As demonstrators hurled rocks at each other and police fired volleys of tear gas, an initiative by Al Azhar, a top religious authority, to resolve the crisis appeared to inch forward.

The Nour Party, the second biggest Islamist group, forecast that Al Azhar-backed talks in pursuit of a solution would happen very soon while Mursi’s Muslim Brotherhood signalled it was ready to take part as long as they were on the right terms.

Brotherhood protest camps in Cairo’s Al Nahda Square and around Rabaa Al Adawiya mosque are the immediate focus of the crisis. Mursi backers stood firm behind barricades yesterday as Egypt’s interim leaders debated how to end their sit-in.

No police crackdown appeared imminent despite frequent warnings from the army-installed government that the protesters should pack up and leave peacefully.

But clashes broke out in central Cairo when a few thousand Mursi supporters marched to the Interior Ministry.

Pro-army residents and shopworkers taunted them, calling them terrorists and saying they were not welcome. They then threw stones at the marchers, getting showered back in return.

Since Mursi was forced out, the army has installed a new administration led by Adli Mansour, a judge. In a shakeup with echoes of the past, he swore in at least 18 new provincial governors yesterday, half of them retired generals.

Moreover, a court set September 7 yesterday as the start of another case brought against Mursi’s allies, including prominent politician Mohamed El Beltagi, on charges of kidnapping and torturing two members of the security forces.

Meanwhile, the Brotherhood suggested it would be willing to join a meeting called by Al Azhar, whose initiative is the only known effort to end the crisis peacefully following the collapse of international mediation last week.

“If they stick to the rules we’re asking for, yes,” Brotherhood spokesman Gehad El Haddad said, adding that talks must be based on the “restoration of constitutional legitimacy”.

But the Brotherhood would oppose proposals made by Al Azhar’s Grand Shaikh Ahmed El Tayeb because he had supported the army’s overthrow of Mursi, Haddad said.

Nour leader Younes Makhyoun said his party had been invited to the Al Azhar talks and he expected the meeting to take place “very soon”.

The government has its own plan for elections beginning with a parliamentary vote in about five months. But for now it is wrestling with the difficult issue of how to tackle the protest camps.

Some officials wish to avoid a bloody showdown, which would damage the government’s efforts to present itself as legitimate, while hardliners in the army and security forces fear they are losing face to the Brotherhood and want to move in.

More than 300 people have already died in political violence since Mursi’s overthrow on July 3, including dozens of his supporters killed by security forces in two separate incidents.

Egypt president names 18 governors

Posted on » Wednesday, August 14, 2013

CAIRO: Egypt’s interim president named at least 18 new provincial governors yesterday, half of them retired generals, in a shake-up that restored the influence of men from army and police backgrounds and flushed out Muslim Brotherhood members.

Deposed president Mohamed Mursi had appointed a number of civilians as provincial governors during his one year in office. Many of them were members of the Brotherhood. That marked a break with the Hosni Mubarak era, when the posts typically went to retired army and police officers.

The new appointees were sworn in by interim President Adli Mansour, head of the army-backed government which replaced the Mursi administration that was removed from power last month after mass protests against Brotherhood rule.

Critics said the line-up announced yesterday was a step backwards.

“It is Mubarak’s days,” prominent blogger Alaa Abd El Fattah wrote on his Twitter feed. “Down down with every Mubarak. Sisi is Mubarak,” he added, referring to General Abdel Fattah Al Sisi, the army chief who deposed Mursi.

The “April 6” pro-democracy youth movement, which played a prominent role in igniting the revolt against Mubarak, said the appointments included too many military men and remnants of the old regime.

“Holding on to the old faces that contributed to ruining political life before the revolution is a new failure for the current administration,” the movement said.

Mursi’s appointment of Brotherhood members as provincial governors fuelled accusations that his movement was staging a power grab.

In a meeting at the presidential palace, Mansour told the governors their priority was to “provide essential commodities at appropriate prices, and bring about security in the Egyptian street”.


Rival groups battle in Cairo streets

Posted on » Wednesday, August 14, 2013

CAIRO: Egyptian police yesterday fired tear gas to disperse crowds of supporters of detained ex-leader Mohamed Mursi during a march in the capital.

Mursi supporters went to a government compound to protest at the appointment of army officers as local governors.

Local residents then clashed with the pro-Mursi crowds and both sides threw bottles and stones at each other, before security forces moved in.

The army deposed Mursi last month and put in place an interim government.

Supporters of Mursi, an Islamist leader who came from the Muslim Brotherhood movement, refuse to accept the new government and insist he must be reinstated.

They say the military overthrew a democratically elected government and is now attempting to entrench its power.

Opponents of Mursi say he used his year in power to dismantle secular, democratic institutions in order to increase the influence of Islam.

Yesterday’s trouble began when crowds of Mursi’s supporters marched to an area of Cairo that houses several government buildings, and is also home to many people who oppose the Muslim Brotherhood.

The protesters were angry because at least 15 former military officers were yesterday sworn in as local governors.

New shipping service boost for major port

Posted on » Wednesday, August 14, 2013

MANAMA: APM Terminals Bahrain, the operators of Khalifa Bin Salman Port (KBSP), yesterday welcomed the inaugural Hanjin/NYK service.

Shipping companies will now have access to a new and direct service to and from the US West Coast and Korea, a first for Bahrain.

The agreement was signed by APM Terminals Bahrain with Japanese company Nippon Yusan Kysha (NYK) and Hanjin Shipping, a Korean company in Singapore.

The new service will directly connect international ports such as Singapore, Malaysia, Korea, Los Angeles and Shanghai before arriving in the kingdom.

Strategically located, the KBSP has over the years seen tremendous success in serving as a transshipment hub in the region, by meeting the growing requirements of the Northern Gulf markets.

The arrival of the new direct shipping service is a testament of KBSP being the preferred port for regional and international shipping lines and reflects Bahrain’s increasing maritime capabilities.

“We are pleased to welcome this new direct service which will now open direct lines for shipping companies in the kingdom and significantly boost transshipment activities, thereby contributing to the kingdom’s economy,” said APM Terminals chief commercial officer Simon Brebner.

“Furthermore, the direct call into Bahrain from two of the top 10 global carriers, Hanjin (South Korea) and NYK (Japan) is a reflection of Bahrain’s increasing capabilities to provide transshipment opportunities to and from the Northern Gulf and we look forward to welcoming and delivering value to this service on a regular basis,” he added.

This new service will arrive in Bahrain every Monday evening and will open up many opportunities for shippers and carriers alike. Bahrain’s Free Trade Agreement with the US will complement the direct service to the West Coast, and ensure that the new shipping route will provide opportunities for further trade growth between the two countries.
