World - Cameroon sacks army officers after suspected Islamist attacks

Yaoundé (AFP) - Cameroon`s president has dismissed two senior army officers deployed in the country`s restive north after at least 15 people died in attacks blamed on Nigeria`s Islamist Boko Haram movement, state radio reported Wednesday. Paul Biya on Tuesday sacked Lieutenant-Colonel Tchanuo Ngongang, commander of the 34th motorised infantry battalion based at Kousseri, in a region where the armed Islamist group has carried out a series of attacks against Cameroonian civilians and the military. A presidential decree read by the radio station said Colonel Gedeon Youssa, a gendarmerie commander in the north, was also fired. No reason was given for Biya`s decision which came after at least 15 people were killed in the two attacks blamed on Boko Haram in Cameroon`s north which borders Nigeria.

World - U.S. missionary jailed in North Korea feels `abandoned`: paper

A U.S. missionary imprisoned in North Korea since 2012 has said he feels abandoned by his government and has appealed again for help in securing his release, a pro-North Korea newspaper reported on Thursday. Kenneth Bae, who is of Korean descent, was arrested in November 2012, convicted and sentenced to 15 years hard labor last year. `Bae said he had heard that the U.S. government is doing everything it can for his release but feels disappointment that there has been no sign of resolution when he is approaching two years in his stay in (the North) and that he feels abandoned by the U.S. government,` the Choson Sinbo newspaper said. Bae said he was suffering from illness of the spleen as well as liver, prostate and spinal problems and he asked the United States to send a special envoy to try to secure his release, said the newspaper which is published in Japan but supports the North and reflects its views.

World - Shi`ite militia hangs up 15 executed Sunnis in Iraqi square

By Michael Georgy BAGHDAD (Reuters) - Iraqi Shi`ite militia forces executed 15 Sunni Muslims and then hung them from electricity poles in a public square in the town of Baquba, northeast of Baghdad, on Wednesday, police said. With Iraq sliding ever closer to all-out sectarian civil war, a car bomb exploded near restaurants and shops in the capital`s Shi`ite district of Sadr City, killing 16 people, while another car bomb killed five in Baghdad`s Ameen district, police said. A police officer at the scene in Baquba, a mixed Sunni and Shi`ite town 65 km (40 miles) from Baghdad, said he believed the gruesome display of the bodies was designed to warn Sunnis off supporting the Islamic State, an al Qaeda offshoot that has seized swathes of land in an advance through northern Iraq. `The militia forces are preventing the medical crew from taking down the bodies,` the police officer said.

World - Iraqi militias execute, hang 15 people: police

By Michael Georgy BAGHDAD (Reuters) - Shi`ite militia forces executed 15 Sunni Muslims and then hung them by electricity poles in a public square in a town northeast of Baghdad on Wednesday, police said. A police officer at the scene in Baquba, a mixed Sunni and Shi`ite town 65 km (40 miles) from Baghdad, said he believed the action was designed to keep Sunnis from supporting the Islamic State, an al-Qaeda offshoot which seized swathes of land in an advance through northern Iraq last month. `They are following a new tactic of keeping bodies hanging for a longer time to deter the Sunni population from backing the Islamic State. We asked them to let us evacuate the bodies but they refused.` The U.S.-funded and trained Iraqi army unraveled in the face of the Islamic State`s sweep through the north and sectarina violence has increased since then.
