Dramatic footage shows the moment US missiles struck a convoy in Iraq, killing Iran’s second most powerful man and bringing the region to the brink of war.

The CCTV clip shows missiles strike two cars in an attack which Iran has threatened to respond to with “crushing revenge”.

Elite Quds commander Qassem Soleimani – tipped to have been the country’s next leader – was killed in the strike, moments after he arrived in Iraq.

He was reportedly “torn to shreds” in the attack on his convoy.

Two senior Islamic Revolutionary Guard figures, Brigadier General Hussein Jafari Nia and Major-General Hadi Taremi also died in the blasts.

Iran has branded the airstrike an ‘assassination’, and Hezbollah has vowed fresh attacks “with the blessing of (Soleimani’s) pure blood”.

The US claimed Soleimani was planning attacks on American diplomats and troops in Iraq, and President Donald Trump said he should have been “taken out” many years ago.

Iraqi prime minister Adil Abdul-Mahdi said the airstrike could “spark a devastating war in Iraq”, and branded the US action a “brazen violation of Iraq’s sovereignty”.

Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei warned that “severe revenge awaits the criminals” behind the strike and announced three days of national mourning.

Four precision missiles struck the cars carrying Soleimani and his entourage, according to US officials.

Iranian defence minister Amir Hatami, who is also top commander of the elite Quds, said: “A crushing revenge will be taken for Soleimani’s unjust assassination…

“We will take revenge from all those involved and responsible for his assassination.”

Thousands of Iranians took to the streets of Tehran chanting “death to America” and burning the US flag in response to the killing.

The missiles were fired from a drone, according to anonymous US officials quoted in US media.

However Iran claims that American helicopters were involved in the ‘assassination’.

The strike has prompted Iran to threaten revenge

Two officials from the PMF said Soleimani’s body was torn to pieces in the attack.

Local militia commander Abu Muntathar al-Hussaini told Reuters: “Haj Soleimani and Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis were riding in one vehicle when it was struck by two successive guided missiles launched from an American helicopter while they were on their way from the arrivals hall on the road that leads out of Baghdad Airport.”

He said the second vehicle was carrying bodyguards from the PMF and was hit by one rocket.

Donald Trump today defied UK pleas to “de-escalate” the situation in Iran as he vehemently stood by the killings.

The US President said Soleimani was responsible for “millions” of deaths and simply “got caught” when he was taken out by a US aistrike at Iraq’s Baghdad Airport.

Trump added: “He should have been taken out many years ago!”

The President defended his decision on Twitter hours after the UK’s Foreign Secretary, Dominic Raab , urged “de-escalation” in a call with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

Reports suggest Boris Johnson was not informed of the strike against Soleimani – head of Tehran’s elite Quds Force who spearheaded military operations in the Middle East – before it happened.

While the UK government has avoided condemning the US, a string of Labour Party figures demanded the White House is held to account for the way in which it carried out the strike.

Top news stories from Mirror Online

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said: “The UK government should urge restraint on the part of both Iran and the US, and stand up to the belligerent actions and rhetoric coming from the United States.”

Iran says scientist jailed in US flying home

Iran says scientist jailed in US flying home

TEHRAN: Iranian scientist Sirous Asgari has flown out of the United States after being released from prison and will return to the Islamic republic on Wednesday, the foreign ministry said.

A US court had in November cleared Asgari of charges of stealing trade secrets in 2016 while he was on an academic visit to Ohio from Tehran’s Sharif University of Technology.

The 59-year-old told British newspaper The Guardian in March that the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency was holding him at a Louisiana detention centre without basic sanitation and refusing to let him return to Iran despite his exoneration.

“Good news, a plane carrying Dr. Sirous Asgari has taken off from America. Congratulations to his wife and family,“ Iran’s top diplomat Mohammad Javad Zarif wrote Tuesday in an Instagram post.

Foreign ministry spokesman Abbas Mousavi said later on state television that Asgari was scheduled to arrive in Iran on Wednesday.

“Mr. Asgari was stranded in America for a while because of (being infected with) the coronavirus and the situation with flights,“ he added.

Mousavi denied Asgari’s release was part of a prisoner exchange and said “he was freed after being exonerated”.

ICE’s database was still showing Asgari’s status as “in custody” in the state of Mississippi on Tuesday.

Stalling accusation

The State Department has yet to respond to an AFP request to comment on his apparent release.

However Ken Cuccinelli, the acting deputy secretary of US homeland security, said on Twitter that the US had been “trying to deport Asghari since last year” but that it had been “stalled every step of the way by the Iranian government”.

“We wish Iran was so enthusiastic to get its illegal nationals back as they would have us all believe,“ he added, noting that there were 10 other Iranians currently in ICE custody.

Both Iran and the United States hold a number of each other’s nationals and they have recently called for them to be released amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

Iran is battling what is the Middle East’s deadliest outbreak of the virus, while the US has reported the highest total number of deaths worldwide from the disease.

The Islamic republic is holding at least five Americans and the US had 19 Iranians in detention prior to Asgari’s release, according to a list compiled by AFP based on official statements and media reports.

Tensions between Tehran and Washington escalated in 2018, after President Donald Trump unilaterally withdrew the US from a landmark nuclear agreement and reimposed crippling sanctions on Iran.

Past swaps

The sworn enemies have also appeared to come to the brink of a direct conflict twice in the past year.

The most recent was in January when Iran fired a barrage of missiles at US troops stationed in Iraq in retaliation for a US drone strike that killed Qasem Soleimani, a top Iranian general.

But Trump refrained from taking any military action in response.

The two have at times swapped prisoners despite having no formal diplomatic relations.

Iran exchanged Washington Post reporter Jason Rezaian in January 2016 for seven Iranians held in the US, on the day the nuclear agreement entered into force.

In December, Iran freed Xiyue Wang, a US academic, in exchange for scientist Massoud Soleimani and said it was open to further swaps.

Americans and dual nationals currently known to be held by Iran include US Navy veteran Michael R. White, Siamak Namazi along with his father Baquer, Morad Tahbaz, Gholam Reza Shahini, and Karan Vafadari.

Most of the Iranians held in the United States are dual nationals charged with evading sanctions by either exporting goods to Iran or using the US financial system. – AFP

https://sputniknews.com/asia/202006291079757061-blackpink-sets-new-k-pop-record-after-how-you-like-that-release/

One of the most popular K-pop girl groups has broken records on both Spotify and Youtube.

The new single “How you like that” by BLACKPINK is set to break Spotify records after debuting in 5th place in the charts and then reaching 2nd place on the daily Global Top 50 chart.

BLACKPINK is the first girl group ever to do so, across all genres, not just K-pop. The girls even outperformed the K-pop phenomena BTS, whose record was 3rd place, making BLACKPINK’s song the highest-ranking K-pop hit in Spotify history.

On Youtube, their new video “How You Like That” also broke records immediately after release, again winning out over BTS. The MV got 100 million views in just just one day, eight hours, and 22 minutes after its release, while BTS’s “Boy with Luv” took one day, 13 hours, and 38 minutes to reach the same total.

The talented K-pop girls surpassed 1.2 billion views on YouTube with their hit song “DDU-DU DDU-DU” which made them the first K-pop group to have such a high number of music video views.

The iTunes chart also felt the impact of girl power. BLACKPINK made history with a No. 1 on iTunes Top Songs charts in 60 different countries including the United States and the Korean real-time charts, setting a new all-time record for the platform.

Blinks (the name for the fandom of the group) are delighted with the new release and are doing whatever they can to help their favs reach the top.

Neymar Harus Bayar Barcelona Rp 107 Miliar | Indeks News

neymar barcelona

Penyerang Paris St-Germain Neymar harus membayar € 6,7 juta (Rp 107 M) kepada mantan klubnya Barcelona, menurut keputussan pengadilan Spanyol.

Pemain Brasil itu mengklaim bahwa Barcelona, klub yang ia tinggalkan pada  Agustus 2017, berutang 43,6 juta euro bonus loyalitas kepadanya.

Seorang hakim memutuskan mendukung pihak La Liga tetapi Neymar, yang mengajukan gugatan tidak lama setelah transfer, dapat mengajukan banding terhadap keputusan tersebut.

Barcelona mengatakan mereka “menyambut” keputusan itu dan akan terus mempertahankan kepentingannya yang sah.

Pemain depan Brasil itu juga mengajukan keluhan kepada FIFA setelah Barca menolak untuk membayarnya menyusul kepindahannya pada 2017.

Selain tidak membayar Neymar, Barcelona memulai proses hukum terhadapnya untuk membayar kembali £8 juta yang ia terima ketika ia menandatangani kesepakatan baru dengan mereka pada tahun 2016.

FIFA tidak mengambil tindakan apa pun, mengatakan akan menyerahkan kasus itu ke pengadilan.

Anders Tegnell accused the WHO of misinterpreting COVID-19 data and claimed the recent “surge” in recorded cases in Sweden was due to testing being ramped up. Mr Tegnall has become something of a poster boy for Sweden’s anti-lockdown strategy. He advised the government to shun the lockdown trend which swept across Europe in March and instead opt for a “herd immunity” strategy.

{%=o.title%}

Three months on, Sweden’s coronavirus death rate is far higher than neighbouring countries.

Compared to Sweden’s 65,137 fatalities, Norway has recorded 8,846, Finland 7,198 and Denmark has 12,675.

The WHO has put Sweden on a list of 11 countries which are in the throes of a “dangerous resurgence” of COVID-19.

But Mr Tegnell, the state epidemiologist with the Public Health Agency of Sweden, refuted the WHO’s assertion.

Mr Tegnell said world leaders rushed into lockdowns (Image: GETTY)

Mr Tegnell said a recent rise in testing in Sweden meant that mild cases of the virus which would have previously gone unrecorded have now been added to the tally.

Mr Tegnell said: “It’s a total misunderstanding, I would say.

“They have looked at the number of cases per day and it has increased steeply over the past week.

“This is entirely due to extended testing and that we find more mild cases.

“We see no evidence at all that our epidemic in Sweden is getting worse – on the contrary.

“It is unfortunate that people are confusing Sweden with countries that have not previously had problems, which are obviously in the beginning.

“Sweden is nearing the end.”

Mr Tegnell said Sweden had recently seen a drop in the number of patients being admitted to ICU units.

He said this data, together with the falling death rate and declining hospital admissions, meant the country was not in the depths of a “resurgence” as the WHO claims it is.

On the list, Sweden is joined by Armenia, Moldova, North Macedonia, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Albania, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Kyrgyzstan, Ukraine

and Kosovo.

A poll conducted last week showed only four in 10 (38 percent) Swedes approved of their Government’s approach to the pandemic.

This was down from 50 percent in a similar survey conducted in May.

Mr Tegnell said world leaders panicked and caved to political pressure and put their countries into lockdown.

The epidemiologist said the consequences of shutting down the economy will far outweigh the benefits.

Swedes have not been on lockdown (Image: GETTY)

Sweden’s response to the pandemic has been very different to other European nations.

There has been no lockdown, with schools and cafes remaining open as the fatalities totted up.

However, large gatherings have been banned and the majority of the population practices social distancing.

TOP NEWS: Greta Thunberg hits back at Donald Trump – Euro …

DONALD TRUMP and Greta Thunberg’s social media battle resumed once again on Thursday morning after the 16-year-old climate change activist hit back at the US President.

The war or words between the pair was sparked after Time magazine named the teenager as its ‘Person of the Year⁠’. Trump immediately criticised Thunberg and Time’s decision on Twitter, a platform he commonly uses to attack the Swedish teenager.

Trump called it “ridiculous,” and advised Thunberg to “work on her Anger Management problem”, encouraging her to “chill” and go see “a good old fashioned movie with a friend.”

So ridiculous. Greta must work on her Anger Management problem, then go to a good old fashioned movie with a friend! Chill Greta, Chill! https://t.co/M8ZtS8okzE

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 12, 2019




Not to be outdone, Thunberg responded by updating her Twitter bio to: “A teenager working on her anger management problem. Currently chilling and watching a good old-fashioned movie with a friend.”

Thunberg and Trump previously sparred on Twitter in September after she delivered a powerful and emotional speech to the United Nations general assembly at the Climate Change Summit in New York which later went viral.

Trump retweeted Thunberg’s speech, added with a sarcastic comment: “She seems like a very happy young girl looking forward to a bright and wonderful future. So nice to see!” Thunberg then trolled Trump by using his tweet in her Twitter bio.

Thunberg’s bio has become her go-to platform for responding to critics, where in recent months she has changed it to simply read “Pirralha”, a Portuguese word meaning brat, after Brazil’s President Jair Bolsonaro used the word to describe her.

Trump has a history of taking issue with Time’s picks for Person of The Year, and his feud with Thunberg may have something to do with him being named as a runner-up this year.

In 2012, he tweeted the magazine had “lost all credibility” for failing to include him in its top 100. In 2015, after Angela Merkel was recognised, he said: “I told you @TIME Magazine would never pick me as person of the year despite being the big favourite. They picked person who is ruining Germany.”
