Ukraine introduces "certain restrictions" on Russians crossing the border into Ukraine

by  Associated Press Ukraine: More stringent border checks for Russians Associated Press - 17 April 2014 10:43-04:00

KIEV, Ukraine (AP) — Ukraine is introducing stringent checks for Russian citizens who want to cross the border into Ukraine.

Russia's flagship Aeroflot said Thursday that Ukrainian officials told the airline that Russian men between 16 and 60 are now banned from entering Ukraine except when they are traveling with family or to funerals of relatives there.

Serhiy Astakhov, an aide to the Ukrainian Border Guard Service chief, told The Associated Press he was "not aware" of the ban mentioned by Aeroflot. Still he admitted that "in the light of the anti-terrorist operation underway in this country, we are introducing certain restrictions."

Astakhov would not elaborate on the restrictions. He said Ukraine is now checking travelers more stringently but granting admittance into the country has always been decided on an individual basis.

Germany investigates suspected member of hard-line Syria Islamic group, alleged accomplices

New Europe News - Thu, 17/04/2014 - 15:40
by  Associated Press Germany investigates suspected Syria radical Associated Press - 17 April 2014 10:40-04:00

BERLIN (AP) — German prosecutors say they're investigating an alleged member of a hard-line Islamic group in Syria and two suspected accomplices accused of helping him procure money and supplies.

Federal prosecutors said Thursday the main suspect is believed to have trained and fought in Syria last year with the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, an al-Qaida breakaway group. They identified the 24-year-old Lebanese national only as Ismail I. in line with Germany privacy rules.

Prosecutors say the group sent him back to Germany to procure money, medicine and military supplies, including camouflage gear and night vision goggles.

He and one of the alleged accomplices were arrested on a German highway in November as they set off for Syria. Federal prosecutors, who handle terrorism cases, took over the case last month.

Brazilian federation wins civil lawsuits, gets clearance to start national league this weekend

New Europe News - Thu, 17/04/2014 - 15:36
by  Associated Press Federation cleared to start Brazilian league by TALES AZZONI, Associated Press - 17 April 2014 10:36-04:00

SAO PAULO (AP) — The Brazilian football federation says it has been successful in its appeal against a club that filed a civil suit trying to be included in the country's first-division league, guaranteeing the championship can start on time this weekend.

Minnow club Icasa was seeking to play the top flight because one of the four promoted teams last year, Figueirense, used a player who was incorrectly registered. Icasa finished fifth and wanted to take Figueirense's spot, but a sports tribunal court had dismissed its case.

The federation had already won appeals against civil suits from Portuguesa, which was trying to remain in the top division after being relegated when a sports tribunal stripped points from the club for using a suspended player in the final round last year.

Still stuck in economic crisis, Italy sets back again date to balance budget; now aim is 2016

New Europe News - Thu, 17/04/2014 - 15:34
by  Associated Press Italy again pushes back balanced budget goal Associated Press - 17 April 2014 10:34-04:00

ROME (AP) — Italy has again pushed back its balanced-budget goal, now aiming for 2016.

Finance Minister Pier Carlo Padoan wrote to the European Commission this week, saying that because of Italy's stubborn economic crisis, it's now aiming for a balanced structural budget in 2016. In 2011, then-Premier Silvio Berlusconi had promised that Italy would balance its budget by 2013. But with the country mired in recession, in 2012, during economist Mario Monti's government, the date was rolled back to 2015.

The Senate Thursday approved the 2016 target.

Padoan cited Italy's decision to accelerate payment of the remaining amount of public debt arrears as a key factor in the pushback.

Many private businesses had said they risked failure if the government didn't pay what it owed them for services and goods.

Ex-honors student linked to 'Jihad Jane' to be sentenced in US for terrorism plot

New Europe News - Thu, 17/04/2014 - 15:30
by  Associated Press Ex-honors student's terror sentencing scheduled Associated Press - 17 April 2014 10:30-04:00

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — A Pakistan-born teen convicted with two women in a Jihadist terror plot is set to be sentenced in Philadelphia.

Mohammad Hassan Khalid, is linked to the case of 50-year-old Colleen "Jihad Jane" LaRose, who was sentenced in January to 10 years in prison.

The FBI says Khalid met LaRose and other extremists online when he was a 15-year-old honors student, and agreed to help them.

He is the rare juvenile detained on federal terrorism charges before turning 18.

In court documents, U.S. prosecutors say the 20-year-old has assisted with global terrorism investigations since his 2011 arrest.

They are seeking a lengthy sentence but less than the 15-year maximum.

German court convicts Somali man in 2010 oil tanker seizure, gives him 12-year prison sentence

New Europe News - Thu, 17/04/2014 - 14:41
by  Associated Press Germany: Somali gets 12 years for tanker hijacking Associated Press - 17 April 2014 09:42-04:00

BERLIN (AP) — A German court has sentenced a Somali man to 12 years in prison for helping lead a group of pirates who seized a German-operated oil tanker in 2010.

The Osnabrueck state court said in a statement that the man was convicted Thursday of kidnapping and extortion in the hijacking of the Marida Marguerite off Somalia. In keeping with German privacy rules, it didn't give the 44-year-old's name.

The defendant was arrested last May at a center for asylum seekers in Germany.

The court says the Marida Marguerite's 22 crewmembers were tortured during the hijacking — which ended after more than seven months with a $5 million ransom payment. It says the defendant was one of the last pirates to leave the ship.

World Wrestling Entertainment's stars in conservative Saudi Arabia for first live matches

New Europe News - Thu, 17/04/2014 - 14:28
by  Associated Press WWE wrestlers in Saudi Arabia for live matches Associated Press - 17 April 2014 09:28-04:00

RIYADH, Saudi Arabia (AP) — Pro wrestlers with the WWE, including John Cena and champion Randy Orton, are in Saudi Arabia for three days of matches in the capital, Riyadh.

World Wrestling Entertainment Inc. says it is the first time its franchise has held matches in the ultraconservative Muslim kingdom, home to Islam's holiest sites.

WWE is wildly popular across the Middle East. WWE has an Arabic website and debuted live in the region in Egypt in 2012. Matches also have been held in Qatar and the United Arab Emirates since.

Ticketmaster says on its website the matches in Saudi Arabia are "for males only."

The state-run Saudi Press Agency says 35 U.S. wrestlers in total from WWE are in the kingdom for the matches that start Thursday.

US stock indexes rise in pre-market trading on positive earnings from Pepsi, others

New Europe News - Thu, 17/04/2014 - 14:16
by  Associated Press Mostly positive US earnings send stock futures up by The Associated Press, Associated Press - 17 April 2014 09:16-04:00

Stocks are headed for a fourth gain in a row after several big-name U.S. companies reported encouraging first-quarter results. PepsiCo and Goldman Sachs are among the companies reporting earnings that were better than investors were expecting.

KEEPING SCORE: Standard & Poor's 500 index futures rose two points, or 0.1 percent, to 1,855 as of 9 a.m. (1300 GMT) Thursday. Dow Jones industrial average futures rose 13 points, also 0.1 percent, to 16,344. Nasdaq composite index futures rose 12 points, or 0.4 percent, to 3,514.

EARNINGS, THE GOOD: General Electric described the economic situation as "positive" and said its industrial division was doing well. PepsiCo reported higher income as the company slashed costs and sold more snacks around the world. Both stocks rose 2 percent in pre-market trading. Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley also rose in pre-market trading after reporting higher income than analysts had forecast. Goldman rose 2 percent and Morgan Stanley rose 3 percent.

EARNINGS, THE NOT SO GOOD: Mattel fell 2 percent after the toy maker said weak sales of Barbie and markdowns to clear out excess inventory left over from a sluggish holiday season led to an unexpected loss in the first three months of the year. UnitedHealth Group fell 2 percent after the leading health insurance provider said its income slid 8 percent in the first quarter as fees and funding cuts from the health care overhaul dented the company's performance.

THE ECONOMY: The number of people seeking U.S. unemployment benefits last week rose 2,000 to 304,000. That was less than analysts were expecting and a sign that layoffs aren't increasing rapidly. The number of weekly claims continues to be near pre-recession levels despite the slight increase.

BOND TRADING: Bond prices fell. The yield on the 10-year Treasury note rose to 2.65 percent.

Israel frees 3 Lebanese detainees, holds two

New Europe News - Thu, 17/04/2014 - 14:11
by  XINHUA

The Israeli army said Thursday that it released three Lebanese women, whom it had arrested earlier in the day, but detained two men who it accused of trying to illegally cross the Israel-Lebanon border.

     On Thursday morning, Lebanese security forces reported that Israel "kidnapped" five of its citizens and then released three women, leaving two others detained.

     The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) said the men were trying to cross the Israel-Lebanon border, a spokeswoman told Xinhua.

     "A short time ago, IDF soldiers identified suspects crossing the Israel-Lebanon border into Israel. Two suspects were detained and taken in for questioning," the IDF spokeswoman said.

     One Israeli security source told Xinhua on condition of anonymity that three men originally crossed the border into Israel, two of them were caught, while the third had fled back to Lebanon. The men were reportedly unarmed.

     This account contrasts from reports given by Lebanese security sources. The Lebanese army earlier reported that an Israeli commando unit crossed the international boundary separating Lebanon from Israel near the Shebaa farms on Thursday at noon and kidnapped five Lebanese citizens, detaining them in the occupied territories.

     According to one source, who spoke to Xinhua on condition of anonymity, a 12-member Israeli commando unit crossed into Lebanon for a length of about 150 meters and kidnapped the farmers while they were working in the fields.

     The United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon is working in coordination with the Lebanese army and the Israeli army to secure the release of the detained.

4 Non Blondes to reunite for 1 night at LA event hosted by Linda Perry

New Europe News - Thu, 17/04/2014 - 14:05
by  Associated Press 4 Non Blondes to reunite for 1 night at LA event by MESFIN FEKADU, Associated Press - 17 April 2014 09:05-04:00

NEW YORK (AP) — What's up with 4 Non Blondes? How about a one-night-only reunion?

The '90s rock band will perform May 10 at "An Evening With Women" to benefit the L.A. Gay & Lesbian Center. Linda Perry, the band's former lead singer and hit songwriter, has produced the event for years.

Perry said she tried to get other singers to perform, as she has done in the past, but "this year everybody's off the market, everybody's busy." That's when she decided to call her former band mates.

"The thought was kind of sweet. I was like, 'Oh, why don't I just for the night, just for this one event, one time only, call up the band and see if they want to be part of this?'" she said. "It's perfect, actually. It actually makes sense to do it now."

4 Non Blondes released "Bigger, Better, Faster, More!" in 1992, featuring the hit "What's Up?" The band split up while recording its sophomore album.

"I don't talk to them at all. I have no idea what Christa (Hillhouse) has been up to. I don't know what Dawn's (Richardson) been doing. Roger (Rocha) I've seen in the mix of things here and there," she said. "Not in a million years would I be thinking that this would be happening."

"An Evening With Women" events have raised $4.1 million. Past performers include Christina Aguilera, Heart, Courtney Love, Ozzy Osbourne and Sia.

Comedian Margaret Cho will host this year's event at the Beverly Hilton hotel.

Perry, who has written for Aguilera, Pink, Alicia Keys and Gwen Stefani, said she's now writing for other artists.

She will launch "The Linda Perry Project," a reality show in which she searches for new acts for her record label, on VH1 in July.

Perry married former "Roseanne" actress and "The Talk" co-host Sara Gilbert last month.

"Sara was the one when I met her," Perry said.

Putin: Russia not to seek self-imposed isolation

New Europe News - Thu, 17/04/2014 - 13:59
by  XINHUA

President Vladimir Putin said Thursday that Russia was not going to seek self-imposed isolation in the global arena.

     Putin, during a four-hour live chat with the Russian public, said the country frequently comes across failure to understand its position and even the unwillingness to understand it from the outside world.

     Russia is not going to engage itself into self-isolation, yet it will not insist on its membership in certain international structures, "especially if they are unable to demonstrate their independence and form their own point of view concerning key issues of international development," Putin noted.

     Responding to a question calling on the Russian authorities to withdraw from some international organizations, including the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) which has threatened to strip the Russian delegation of its voting rights, Putin said if they didn't want Russia, "we will not lose anything."

     "But we will not stage any demarches on purpose either. We will continue to work calmly and systematically," he added.

     Meanwhile, Putin said the West was seeking to make him the main target of sanctions amid the ongoing Ukrainian crisis.

     "Perhaps such an attempt is being made indeed -- to make me the main target of sanctions," Putin said, adding he didn't feel ashamed for his friends on the sanction list by the Western countries.

Opposition: 'invisible forces' derail peace process in Nepal

New Europe News - Thu, 17/04/2014 - 13:56
by  XINHUA

Nepal's opposition party UCPN ( Maoist) has said that "invisible international forces" are providing funds to derail the Nepal's peace and constitution drafting process, the party said in Parliament on Thursday.

     The party said that international forces are providing million of rupees to provoke the war-era cases and derail the constitution drafting process.

     Speaking in the Parliament, Maoist lawmaker Shakti Basnet said some activists are receiving millions from some countries for the same purpose.

     This is the first time that Maoist party has blamed the international community. The party also presented some documents related to some individuals receiving the money from some embassies.

     The Maoist party, which is obstructing the Parliament demanding to withdraw the cases against its cadres, said various foreign forces are active in Nepal to derail the peace process. Nepal's government and Maoist party are at loggerheads since a week over the dispute on war-era cases.

American researcher says he's fooled fingerprint check on Samsung's flagship Galaxy S5

New Europe News - Thu, 17/04/2014 - 13:47
by  Associated Press Researcher finds flaw in Samsung fingerprint check Associated Press - 17 April 2014 08:47-04:00

BERLIN (AP) — A Berlin-based researcher says he has managed to fool the fingerprint-based security system on Samsung's new Galaxy S5 smartphone using wood glue and a picture of the original print.

Ben Schlabs, an American who works for German firm Security Research Labs GmbH, says the trick is identical to the one hackers used to unlock Apple's iPhone 5 last year.

The flaw is potentially more serious than in the iPhone, because Schlabs says he was also able to trick the electronic payment app PayPal that uses Samsung's authentication system into accepting the fake fingerprint.

Schlabs says users concerned about security can choose to use a strong password instead of the convenient but flawed fingerprint system.

A spokeswoman for Samsung in Germany wasn't immediately able to comment on the issue Thursday.

UEFA study shows top-flight European teams change head coaches on average nearly once a season

New Europe News - Thu, 17/04/2014 - 13:42
by  Associated Press European teams change coach almost once a season Associated Press - 17 April 2014 08:42-04:00

NYON, Switzerland (AP) — The unstable job security of a football manager has been highlighted in a report by UEFA that says the average top-division European club changes head coach almost once a year.

The European governing body says clubs made an average of 2.7 coaching changes in the three seasons from 2011-13.

Coaches in top-flight Greek clubs lasted an average of four months in that period. Of Europe's top leagues, Spanish teams changed coaches every 11 months and English sides every two years.

UEFA also said in its latest licensing benchmarking report released on Thursday that player wages increased 59 percent from 2007-12 while club revenues grew by 42 percent in the same period.

Americans seeking weekly unemployment benefits rose to 304,000; still at pre-recession levels

New Europe News - Thu, 17/04/2014 - 13:41
by  Associated Press Applications for US jobless aid up 2K to 304,000 by JOSH BOAK, Associated Press - 17 April 2014 08:41-04:00

WASHINGTON (AP) — The number of people seeking U.S. unemployment benefits last week rose 2,000 to a seasonally adjusted 304,000. Jobless claims continue to be near pre-recession levels despite the slight increase.

The Labor Department says that the four-week average of applications, a less volatile measure, fell 4,750 to 312,000. That is the lowest four-week average since October 2007, just two months before the Great Recession started. The average has fallen by 53,500 applications over the past 12 months.

Applications are a proxy for layoffs. The current level of claims suggests that employers are holding on their workers with the expectation of stronger economic growth ahead.

Employers added 192,000 jobs in March and 197,000 in February, the Labor Department reported. Hiring has picked up after a slowdown caused by severe winter weather.

Putin to expand ties with China

New Europe News - Thu, 17/04/2014 - 13:35
by  XINHUA

Russian President Vladimir Putin said Thursday that his country will expand cooperation with China and the bilateral relations are expected to be a considerable factor in global politics.

     "We'll develop relations with China. We've never had such trusted relations," Putin said during a live chat with Russian citizens.

     "Cooperation with China, including that in international issues, is at unprecedented level," he added.

     He said the two countries have common views on the international situation and global security issues.

     With joint exercises on land and at sea held within their borders, military mutual trust has also been strengthened, Putin said.

     Russia-China ties "will significantly affect the contemporary architecture of international relations," said the president.

     Meanwhile, he said Russia does not seek any military-political alliance with China as the world's "bloc-based system has long been outdated."

     In 2012, Putin included China in his first foreign trip after assuming the Russian presidency. Xi Jinping, after his election as Chinese president last year, also chose Moscow to be the first foreign capital to visit as China's head of state.

     Both leaders have vowed to push forward the comprehensive strategic partnership of coordination between the two countries.
