World - Bahrain on path to recovery five years after revolt, says police chief


By Sami Aboudi MANAMA (Reuters) - Bahrain`s police chief said the Gulf state was slowly returning to stability five years after a 2011 uprising was put down by force, but still faced security threats from Iran-backed elements and militants linked to Islamic State. Speaking ahead of the fifth anniversary of the start of the pro-democracy protests, Brigadier-General Tariq al-Hassan also rejected accusations by rights groups of torture by security forces as a `broken record`, saying Bahrain has set up several monitoring mechanisms to ensure police transparency. Critics of the island kingdom, where the U.S. Navy`s Fifth Fleet is based, say the divisions have been deepened by a harsh crackdown on the opposition by Bahrain`s security forces.

World - Top Asian News 1:28 a.m. GMT


WELLINGTON, New Zealand (AP) — A magnitude-5.8 earthquake has shaken the New Zealand city of Christchurch but there are no immediate reports of injuries or major damage. The quake Sunday comes nearly five years after a 2011 earthquake destroyed much of the center of New Zealand`s second largest city and killed 185 people. The U.S. Geological Survey reported that Sunday`s quake was centered 17 kilometers (11 miles) east of the city at a relatively shallow depth of 8 kilometers (5 miles). New Zealand authorities did not issue a tsunami warning. Sunday`s quake was one of the largest since the 2011 quake and people from across the South Island reported feeling the ground shaking.

World - Egyptian court reverses policeman`s jail sentence for killing activist


Egypt`s highest court reversed on Sunday a 15-year jail sentence handed down by a lower court to a policeman for killing an activist in the street, judicial sources said, overturning a rare sentence against members of security forces. First Lieutenant Yaseen Hatem was charged last March with action that `led to the death` of Shaimaa Sabbagh, a lesser charge than murder but still a rare action against a member of the security forces. Sabbagh was shot in January 2015 at a march marking the fourth anniversary of the uprising that ousted veteran ruler Hosni Mubarak in 2011.

World - 150,000 Antarctica penguins die after iceberg grounding: study


Some 150,000 penguins died after a massive iceberg grounded near their colony in Antarctica, forcing them to make a lengthy trek to find food, scientists say in a newly-published study. The B09B iceberg, measuring some 100 square kilometres (38.6 square miles), grounded in Commonwealth Bay in East Antarctica in December 2010, the researchers from Australia and New Zealand wrote in the Antarctic Science journal. The Adelie penguin population at the bay`s Cape Denison was measured to be about 160,000 in February 2011 but by December 2013 it had plunged to an estimated 10,000, they said.

World - Chad leader appoints new prime minister ahead of ballot


N`Djamena (AFP) - Chad`s president has appointed a new prime minister, Albert Pahimi Padacke, national radio reported, as he looks to extend his grip on power in the central African nation. Observers say the appointment is most likely a reward after Pahimi Padacke announced his support Friday for President Idriss Deby Itno, who is running for a fifth term in April elections. The radio broadcast Saturday did not give any further details, but the new prime minister is leader of the National Rally of Chadian Democrats (RNDT), a political party aligned with the MPS, and came second in presidential elections in 2011.
