Pacific Ocean countries take part in UN meeting on tsunami preparations

17 September 2007Experts from countries bordering the Pacific Ocean are gathering in Ecuador this week for a United Nations-organized meeting to assess the state of preparations in the region, home to most of the world’s tsunamis, to predict and deal with any future killer waves. The four-day meeting of the Intergovernmental Coordination Group for the Pacific Tsunami Warning and Mitigation System, starting today in Guayaquil, will hear reports from participating nations about what they are doing to be ready for a potential tsunami.The group’s members will also examine the progress – through improved seismic data, sea-level measurements and deep-ocean tsunami detection – towards strengthening the regional response to any tsunami and to reducing any public risks.The Pacific Ocean, which covers a third of Earth’s surface, is particularly vulnerable to tsunamis because it is surrounded by a series of mountain chains, deep-ocean trenches and arcs of islands that are known for the frequency and strength of earthquakes.In 1979, the so-called Tumaco earthquake in South America triggered a tsunami that killed 200 people on the coast of Colombia.The Pacific Tsunami Warning System (PWTS), which has been in place since 1965, now serves 26 countries with rapid information on approaching tsunamis, public awareness campaigns and advice on how to mitigate the impact of these natural disasters.This week’s meeting has been arranged by the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission (IOC) of the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO). read more


UN welcomes newspaper apology for accusations of sexual exploitation against staffer

“We’re pleased to see that the UK daily, the Independent, today issued an apology for misrepresenting” the conduct of former Chief of Staff Jaque Grinberg, who had been based in the DRC with the UN Organization Mission (MONUC), spokesman Stephane Dujarric said at the daily briefing at UN Headquarters in New York. “The newspaper had implied that he’d been involved in sexual exploitation of Congolese women,” Mr. Dujarric said. “In its apology, it acknowledged that Grinberg has been at the forefront of efforts to combat sexual abuse by peacekeepers in the DRC and is a highly respected and experienced UN staff member.” In its apology to the Australian for the 11 January story, the Independent said, “We apologize for any distress caused to him or his family by the article.” read more


Pea shortage predicted in Britain after hot weather spell

Growers have already harvested around 30 per cent of the season’s pickings, but are concerned that the remaining stock cannot be saved, even with high levels of rainfall predicted with the imminent arrival of Storm Chris.The tropical storm is expected in the UK by the weekend and could become a hurricane, bringing heavy amounts of wind and rain.August and September are usually prime time for picking peas, but many growers are likely to harvest their peas earlier rather than risk further heat damage.Stephen Francis, MD of frozen supplier Fen Peas, told The Grocer: “It’s too late to rescue a lot of our peas, they overexerted themselves searching for water that’s not there.”All of our locations are harvesting below average. If we have rainfall now it wouldn’t be able to reverse the effects.”One positive side effect of the soaring temperatures has meant smaller garden peas and petits pois are said to be of a higher quality and better tasting than normal because of the extra sunshine. pea pods A shortage of peas is feared in Britain as recent hot weather means they cannot form in their pods.The dry, warm climate has meant fewer pods and smaller peas are being produced as they do not have enough water to fully grow.It is also proving the perfect breeding ground for specific types of bugs, such as the pea moth and bruchid beetle, which feed on both peas and beans at this time of year, causing further problems for pea stocks.The UK is the largest producer of peas for freezing in Europe – producing 150,000 tonnes of them a year – and is 90 per cent self sufficient.In 2016/17 approximately 8,652 tonnes of peas were exported from the UK to countries within the EU. While peas are thought to be the most widely affected by the hot weather, particularly the marrowfat and split green varieties, harvesters of other crops are also facing challenging times. The number of pea pods being harvested have dramatically reduced due to hot, dry weather.Credit: Karl Newedel/ Getty Images Contributor In June, growers warned that lettuce stocks in supermarkets could be low due to the unusually high temperatures which have both boosted demand for the product and tampered with its growth rate.The British Leafy Salad Growers Association (BLSGA) told the BBC that the “soaring” temperatures were causing “havoc” for growers, with many saying they may have to import leaves from America to make up for the shortage in Britain.One week in June saw a record 18 million lettuces sold, 40 per cent more than last year. But all of this could be dramatically reduced after this summer has seen several weeks of warm temperatures more than ten degrees above the average.Met Office figures revealed that June this year was the driest on record in some parts of the country.Franek Smith, president of the British Edible Pulses Association, told The Grocer: “Though the life cycle of the plant means they die in the field and dry out before harvest, the hot weather is forcing them to die before they reach maturity. “The peas have only just formed in their pods, so stopping growth now means there are fewer and smaller peas in the pods depreciating value of the yield.”The number of pods is also reduced as top flowers have aborted production due to hot, dry weather.” Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Dean Saunders jailed after claiming he could not give police breath samples

Dean Saunders Former international footballer Dean Saunders has been jailed for 10 weeks after claiming he could not perform a breathalyser test because of his asthma. The 55-year-old, who played for Liverpool, Aston Villa and Wales, was stopped on suspicion of drink driving after he was seen failing to give way at a roundabout on May 10.Police officers said the retired striker was slurring his words and had to prop himself up against his Audi 8 when he was pulled over in Boughton, Chester.Saunders, now a pundit for talkSPORT, refused to take a roadside breath test and also failed to give a sample at Blacon Police Station later that day.He initially maintained his innocence and claimed that his ongoing problems with asthma meant he was unable to blow into the tube of the device.He initially maintained his innocence and claimed that his ongoing problems with asthma meant he was unable to blow into the tube of the device.

You very nearly caused a serious accident.”Saunders, of The Paddocks, Whitegate, near Northwich, Cheshire, was also banned from driving for 30 months and ordered to pay £620 court costs.Prosecutors dropped a charge of dangerous driving.

Thomas Cook Irish closure could impact on prices say travel agents

first_imgWe are extremely upset  for our 44 fellow travel professionals who have been impacted by the decision of Thomas Cook and we hope, based on their experience and skills that they will have no trouble finding new positions.Read: Thomas Cook to close Irish office, move exclusively online >Read: Arab Spring takes toll on tour operator Thomas Cook > THE GROUP REPRESENTING travel agents says that the decision of Thomas Cook to close its Irish office and move completely online could lead to higher prices for Irish customers.The operator announced yesterday that they would no longer be selling chartered holidays out of Ireland from 30 April. The Irish Travel Agents Association has said that they are “extremely upset” by the decision.“This move by Thomas Cook will impact Irish consumers as there will now be between 60,000 and 80,000 less chartered seats leaving Ireland,” said ITAA CEO Pat Dawson.“Whilst this will impact consumers due to a reduction in capacity and an increase in demand, there are still over 300,000 airline seats available with plenty of destinations and good choice,” he added.Clare Dunne, president of the ITAA, say that the closure of Thomas Cook in Ireland is indiciaitv eof a trend which has seen 70 per cent of booking of ITAA members completed online.Dunne also expressed the ITAA’s concern over the future of the Thomas Cook workers:last_img read more


Seagate breaks 1 terabit barrier 60TB hard drives possible

first_imgIn the world of hard drives storage, density is king and Seagate has just achieved a major breakthrough that guarantees major storage gains for the next decade.That breakthrough is managing to squeeze 1 terabit (1 trillion bits) of data into a square inch or space, effectively opening the way for larger hard drives over the coming years beyond the 3TB maximum we currently enjoy. How much of an improvement does this storage milestone offer? Current hard drives max out at around 620 gigabits per square inch, meaning Seagate has improved upon that by over 50%. However, that’s just the beginning.The 1 terabit barrier has been broken due to the use of a new type of recording known as heat-assisted magnetic recording, or HAMR. We first heard about HAMR back in 2009 when Seagate started discussing their research into laser heating. Then in October last year TDK introduced the tech.HAMR works by adding a small laser in the drive head that heats the surface of the platter. By doing so the magnetic field intensifies and it’s possible to pack many more bits into the same area.Initially the use of HAMR in Seagate’s drives should see their capacity double. So a 3.5-inch drive will be offered at up to 6TB and a 2.5-inch drive at up to 2TB. The HAMR tech does scale very well though, with the upper limit eventually being 10 terabits per square inch. At that density we would see 3.5-inch drives with 60TB of capacity and 2.5-inch drives would max out at 20TB.With the introduction of HAMR, Seagate has effectively guaranteed hard drives will continue to play a role in the storage market for the next decade. Within 5 years we could all be carrying around double-digit terabyte drives in our laptops.More at Seagatelast_img read more


Crowds chant I am Fidel as leaders ashes reunited with Che Guevara

first_img FIDEL CASTRO’S ASHES were taken to a symbolic reunion with his fallen comrade-in-arms Ernesto “Che” Guevara in Santa Clara today, the first stop in the late Cold War titan’s last trip across Cuba.After two days of tributes in Havana, hundreds of thousands of flag-waving Cubans lined the streets to bid farewell as a military jeep began a four-day journey yesterday morning with the cedar urn in tow.Crowds chanted “I am Fidel!” as the convoy started retracing the victory tour that Castro’s guerrilla took in 1959 to celebrate their defeat of US-backed dictator Fulgencio Batista.The flag-covered urn, which rested under a glass case on a small olive-green trailer, arrived in Santa Clara after midnight and entered a complex with a mausoleum and museum dedicated to Guevara.“It’s a historic meeting, two comandantes who change the history of Cuba and humanity,” said Agnier Sanchez, a 33-year-old medical imaging technician.A somber guitar, song and dance show played across a giant statue of Guevara as the “caravan of freedom” paused a third of the way into its 950-kilometer (590-mile) trek across the island. Source: Natacha Pisarenko AP/Press Association ImagesThe convoy will resume this morning, heading to other cities before a final ceremony on Sunday in the eastern city of Santiago de Cuba, where Castro’s ashes will be laid to rest next to 19th century independence hero Jose Marti.Cubans were observing the fifth of nine days of mourning for Castro following his death last Friday at age 90. Castro ruled from 1959 until an illness forced him to hand power to his brother Raul in 2006.Dissidents call Castro a dictator who jailed opponents but others in Cuba praise his legacy of providing free education and health care to Cubans while defying the US “empire.”“I come from a poor family. I am black. In another era, I wouldn’t have had the opportunity to be who I am today,” said Maria Gonzalez, a 31-year-old computer engineer.Che GuevaraCastro met Guevara in 1955 while in exile in Mexico, and the young doctor joined Fidel and Raul on the boat that took them to Cuba a year later.Guevara won a crucial battle in Santa Clara in 1958, derailing an armored train and taking the city.Guevara was given high-ranking positions in the government but he left in 1966 to lead a guerrilla expedition in Bolivia, where he was captured and executed a year later.His remains were recovered three decades later and taken to Santa Clara, now home to a huge statute of Che and a museum dedicated to the revolutionary icon.“His death seemed like something incredible to me. In fact, I don’t know, something that one can never get used to,” Fidel Castro once told a Spanish journalist, admitting that he occasionally had dreams in which he spoke with Guevara.Uncertain futureAs the country ponders its future without Fidel Castro, attention is turning toward Raul and whether he will undertake deeper economic reforms after enacting modest changes in recent years. Raul Castro Source: Ricardo Mazalan AP/Press Association ImagesThe 85-year-old general, who has vowed to step down in 2018, has also restored diplomatic relations with his brother’s eternal enemy, the United States.“If Fidel’s death results in reforms in Cuba speeding up a little, the rapprochement with the United States could be energized,” said Michael Shifter, president of the Washington-based Inter-American Dialogue think tank.“It’s an opportunity to strengthen bilateral relations, but a lot will depend on what happens within the Cuban government,” he said.US President-elect Donald Trump threatened this week to halt the detente that was begun by US President Barack Obama if the Castro government doesn’t offer a “better deal” to the Cuban people.Obama did not join other foreign leaders at a massive rally for Fidel Castro in Havana on Tuesday, instead sending aides as the White House voiced concerns about the human rights situation in Cuba.Along the caravan’s route, Fidel Castro’s supporters were confident that his revolution would go on.“Cuba won’t change,” said Jany de la Caridad, 20, who had the face of a young Fidel painted on her face. “Look at all these people waiting for hours for Fidel’s ashes.“You think that Cuba will deviate from its socialist path with the death of one man – even if it was commander in chief Fidel Castro?”- © AFP, 2016Read: Havana holds huge tribute to Castro; all kinds of world leaders turn upRead: ‘Con la simpatico’: President Higgins is first to sign book of condolences for Castro Share78 Tweet Email Thursday 1 Dec 2016, 8:24 AM Dec 1st 2016, 8:24 AM 10,331 Views Crowds chant ‘I am Fidel’ as leader’s ashes reunited with Che Guevara Castro’s ashes will be laid to rest in a final ceremony on Sunday. http://jrnl.ie/3112809 55 Comments By AFP Short URL Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this articlelast_img read more


Les virus touchent un tiers des PC européens

first_imgLes virus touchent un tiers des PC européensUne étude a mis en lumière le fait que 30% des ordinateurs européens avaient été victimes d’attaques informatiques en 2010.Alors que 84% des PC des Européens sont protégés par divers logiciels de sécurité, cela n’empêche pas un tiers d’entre eux de subir une contamination par des virus, malware, spyware, ou encore cheval de Troie, explique une étude du cabinet Eurostat relayée par 20minutes.fr. C’est en Europe de l’Est que le problème est le plus important. La Bulgarie (58% des PC contaminés), la Slovaquie (47%) et la Hongrie (46%) sont ainsi les plus touchés de l’UE. Alors que la France se situe juste dans la moyenne (33%), l’Autriche, l’Irlande et la Finlande réussissent à rester sous les 20% de machines contaminées. En revanche, le phishing, qui consiste dans le vol d’informations en se faisant passer pour un site familier, reste très marginal malgré une forte médiatisation récente. Seuls 3% des ressortissants de l’UE sont tombés dans le panneau.Le 9 février 2011 à 14:59 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more


La sertraline un antidépresseur bientôt détourné pour traiter une infection cérébrale

first_imgLa sertraline, un antidépresseur bientôt détourné pour traiter une infection cérébrale ?Des chercheurs de l’Institut des maladies infectieuses de l’université Makerere, en Ouganda, espèrent donner une seconde vie à un antidépresseur très répandu sur le marché. Ce médicament pourrait permettre de sauver des personnes atteintes d’une infection fongique au cerveau.C’est avec le soutien du Canada que des chercheurs de l’Institut des maladies infectieuses de l’université Makerere, en Ouganda, espèrent pouvoir détourner la sertraline, une molécule utilisée comme antidépresseur. Très répandue sur le marché pharmacologique depuis 1991 sous différentes appellations (Zoloft ou Lustral aux États-Unis notamment), cette molécule possède aussi de puissantes propriétés antifongiques.Ce sont ces propriétés que les chercheurs ougandais souhaitent exploiter pour sauver les vies de personnes victimes de méningite cryptococcique, une infection des tissus du cerveau par un champignon. Plus de 30% des personnes atteintes meurent moins de dix semaines après leur infection ; ce sont souvent des malades immunodéficients touchés par le virus du sida. Aujourd’hui, cette maladie fait 600.000 morts par an en Afrique subsaharienne. D’où l’espoir suscitée par l’idée des chercheurs ougandais. David Meya, le principal chercheur explique que les scientifiques espèrent “faire un nouvel usage de cet ancien médicament. Notre espoir est que si ce médicament est efficace contre la méningite cryptococcique, nous pourrons réduire le taux de mortalité de 40 à 50%, ce qui serait considérable”, a-t-il indiqué cité par l’AFP. Il épargnerait notamment une partie du temps de développement d’un nouveau médicament (dix ans en principe) puisque l’antidépresseur existe déjà. Seules quatre années d’essais cliniques seraient nécessaires. Un médicament plus efficace et moins cher À lire aussiDengue : symptômes, traitement, prévention, où en est-on ?”Nous savons déjà comment l’utiliser de façon sûre. Nous avons seulement à le tester cliniquement pour déterminer les doses” nécessaires pour traiter cette infection fongique précise M. Meya. Il s’agit d’un grand espoir pour les Africains car à l’heure actuelle, les deux médicaments utilisés contre ce champignon, la flucytosine et l’amphotéricine, sont “très chers et pas largement distribués en Afrique subsaharienne”, explique M. Meya. Quant au troisième traitement existant, le fluconazole, il se révèle moins efficace. “Donc si nous pouvions avoir un médicament plus efficace et moins cher contre la méningite cryptococcique, nous pourrions nettement réduire le taux de mortalité en Afrique subsaharienne”, souligne le chercheur. De plus, comme le médicament ne tombe plus sous la protection d’un brevet, des génériques meilleur marché pourraient être produits. L’aide financière du Canada dans ce projet est précieuse puisqu’elle dote l’équipe de recherche de 100.000 dollars dans le cadre du programme dit “Grand défi Canada”. Ce programme de 10,9 millions de dollars aide une centaine de projets à travers 13 pays en développement “pour trouver des idées audacieuses et créatives visant à trouver des solutions à des problèmes de santé”.Le 6 mai 2013 à 17:12 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Karla Menzies said.The personnel fired back while retreating to safety and called for backup, Menzies said. A SWAT team was dispatched to the scene to take up positions around the home where the shooter possibly was holed up.The name of the assailant was unknown, and details about what prompted someone to call in deputies to the neighborhood were unavailable.Sheriff’s officials advised the public to remain clear of the area and asked residents near the site of the shooting to remain in their homes.The standoff was ongoing in the early evening. last_img read more

Why have a holiday in Tunisia Tunisia has histori

first_imgWhy have a holiday in Tunisia?Tunisia has historically been an extremely popular country, and because of this, considered a good-value beach holiday destination for UK travellers, with a balmy Mediterranean climate and beautiful coastal resorts like Hammamet. For anyone looking beyond a simple beach break, what makes Tunisia more interesting is the cultural offering, with everything from atmospheric Roman ruins at Carthage to the eerily abandoned Star Wars sets near the desert towns of Tozeur and Tataouine. While travel industry experts are cautious to recommend a holiday to Tunisia in the near future, some are confident its appeal will return, albeit slowly. It’s worth remembering that many Tunisians rely on visitors for their livelihood, with 15% of the country’s economy depending on tourism. Though it shouldn’t be considered lightly, the current drop in visitors also means deserted beaches, good deals on hotels and cheap flights. Is it safe to book a holiday to Tunisia in 2017?The travel restrictions on Tunisia began after a shooting in the tourist resort of Sousse in June 2015, in which 30 British citizens were killed, and a further attack on a police bus in November 2015. The Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) currently advises against all but essential travel to Tunisia as a whole and against all travel to the following border areas:Chaambi Mountain National Park areaTunisia-Algeria border crossing points at Ghardimaou, Hazoua and Sakiet Sidi YoussefThe militarised zone south of, but not including, the towns of El Borma and DhehibaWithin 5km of the Libya border area from north of Dhehiba up to but not including the Ras Ajdir border crossingThe FCO still considers the threat of terrorism to be ‘high’ and does not view the security in Tunisia as “adequate protection for British tourists at the present time”.Following the extended warning, larger tour operators have cancelled charter flights to regional airports Monastir and Enfidah, and companies First Choice, Thompson and Thomas Cook have cancelled their package holidays to Tunisia for summer 2017. However, direct flights are still running between London and Tunis Carthage Airport so it’s still possible to arrange an independent trip*.

Despite the UK government’s view of security in Tunisia, there has been a significant effort by the Tunisian government, keen to attract visitors again, to increase safety measures at hotels and popular tourist areas. Such measures include security wands, metal detectors and under-car mirrors, and a visible police presence. This said, if you do choose to travel to Tunisia, the official advice from the UK government is to “be vigilant, avoid crowded places and follow the advice of the Tunisian security authorities and your travel company, if you have one.”Is Tunisia safe for solo travellers?Aside from current threats, Tunisia is considered one of the safest countries for solo travellers in the region. Following the Arab Spring revolutions, and the subsequent unrest and violence in many North African countries from 2011 onwards, Tunisia’s political transition has been one of the most peaceful. It’s always wise to do some research if you are visiting Tunisia on your own; as a Muslim country, travellers, and women in particular, should dress conservatively away from the beach resorts and bear in mind that alcohol may not be available or approved of in a lot of places.

or when the Cookie Monster made a surprise visit just to give her a hug.In Dandakaranya ‘battalion-1’ is the topmost military body headed by its commander Madvi Hidma “Military organisation of Maoists in Dandakaranya comprises Local Organisation Scout (LOS) Local Guerrilla Scout (LGS) platoon company and battalion” a surrendered Maoist from Bijapur told Firstpost on condition of anonymity While the role of LOS is to establish public contact with villagers by moving around villages collecting money (protection fee/levy) rice and other edible items from them; the LGS — next upper level — is a part of janatana sarkar (people’s government) The next higher level is ‘platoon’ which lays booby traps monitors the movement of police and security forces and carries out firing when the need arises during an ambush Above it is the ‘company’ that is responsible for carrying out military work on the ground ‘Battalion’ is the topmost body with a leader known as commander The sole purpose of the battalion is an armed struggle against the establishment While the surrendered Maoist revealed about two companies operating in Bastar division the Inspector General of Bastar division Chhattisgarh Police Vivekananda said "There’s only one battalion at present headed by its commander Hidma" Jan Militia: These are the supporters and sympathisers of Maoists living in villages and often remain unidentified The members of Jan Militia act as ‘eyes and ears’ for Maoist cadres and are responsible for gathering intelligence monitoring movements of security force personnel spreading of LWE ideology indoctrination of tribal villagers especially youths and striking when the need arises They are often considered as the backbone of CPI (Maoist) Dandakaranya Special Zonal Committee (DKSZC): This is purportedly as powerful as a state committee It is the Maoist stronghold in the state It’s led by high profile Maoist leaders who are also members of the central committee The command area of DKSZC comprises Bastar and a part of Gadchiroli Liberated zone and janatana sarkar A ‘liberated zone’ is a particular region in an LWE-affected district where the Maoists rule the roost Police and central forces haven’t been able to penetrate this zone According to police and CRPF sources the Abujhmarh belt in Narayanpur district remains impenetrable for them The other areas of the ‘liberated zone’ are in Sukma and Bijapur districts The CPI (Maoist) has formed janatana sarkar in these zones which is a ‘state within a state’ Entry into a village by an outsider or leaving the village by a villager in such regions is not possible without the permission of the Maoist cadre Violate it and one may face severe consequences which usually amounts to death — such are the laws of janatana sarkar A page from programme and constitution of People’s Liberation Guerrilla Army in Dandakaranya Image procured by Firstpost/Debobrat Ghose Frontal organisations CPI (Maoist) has its frontal organisations related to tribal villagers farmers labourers and tribal workers in the mines like Dandakaranya Adivasi Kisan Mazdoor Sangh Dandakaranya Khadaan Mazdoor Sangh Krantikari Kisan Samiti Krantikari Mahila Samiti etc These bodies are functional across seven Maoist-infested districts in Bastar division and disseminate party’s policies among tribals The party also has its cultural wing that uses songs dance skits etc in villages to spread its ideology and disseminate messages The aim is to bring Nav Janvadi Kranti (neo people’s revolution) However this has been destroying the original cultural fabric of the tribals Many villagers alleged that Maoists have banned many age-old tribal practices like ghotul etc According to Outlook Traveller "The ghotul is a social institution in Bastar its forms and extent varying from community to community Strictly speaking the ghotul is a village dormitory a youth club a bachelor’s home a house for unmarried girls or a common dormitory for both young men and women Murias are its greatest adherents" Some of the members of the frontal organisations are also a part of the Jan Militia Naxal armed cadre PLGA’s document showing strategic positioning of foot soldiers during an ambush Image procured by Firstpost/Debobrat Ghose Military training and ambush strategy The foot soldiers and cadres in the PLGA comprising both men and women have to undergo rigorous training — from physical combat to laying an ambush in various Maoist camps spread across Bastar especially in the ‘liberated zone’ Documents of the Maoists accessed by Firstpost show how the ultras train their cadre on laying booby traps launch ambushes and guerrilla warfare A document on ambush strategy appears to be a page from an organic chemistry book at the first glance It has been coded as ‘C’ ‘H’ ‘O’ ‘M’ etc (not carbon hydrogen or oxygen) to explain the formation of foot soldiers on a battleground and how to launch an attack counter security forces and trap the ‘enemy’ (police and CRPF as per Naxals) in an ambush Another document — a hand sketch of an Under Barrel Grenade Launcher (UBGL) — explains the functioning and use of the weapon "Besides looting arms and ammunition the Maoists make improvised weapons at their local factories deep inside the jungles The documents recovered by us from Maoists camps revealed many secrets from training to weapon manufacturing" DM Awasthi chief of Anti-Naxal Operations in Chhattisgarh told Firstpost According to intelligence sources the style of operation use of landmines making of IEDs guerrilla warfare tactics use of excessive brutality against those who are opposed to Maoists like police security force personnel and even villagers who they brand as mukhbir (police informers) and implanting IEDs inside the bodies of slain CRPF jawans — all indicate towards a past nexus with LTTE and training imparted by Tamil Tigers at some point of time It was done on a mutual-benefit basis The LTTE cadre provided training to Naxals inside Dandakaranya forests as they got a safe hideout and logistic support after being pushed out by Sri Lankan and Indian governments “The Maoists got their training in IEDs landmines manufacturing of improvised devices and jungle warfare from the members of the LTTE cadres when the latter was on the run and took shelter in the jungles of Bastar Naxals had given them shelter on the condition that they would be trained by the LTTE men” counter-terrorism analyst Anil Kamboj said Jan adalat: Naxal court of law Maoists hold jan adalatin tribal villages to settle disputes among villagers They give exemplary punishments using extreme brutality to those found ‘guilty’ by them especially to those whom they identify as ‘police informers’ It’s also a way to settle scores and create fear-psychosis among villagers to subjugate the latter In recent times cases of jan adalats have declined but couldn’t be stopped completely Alarming dates Both the government and security forces consider a couple of dates being observed by the Maoists in Chhattisgarh as ‘alarming’ and safety alerts are issued during those periods The CPI (Maoist) gives a call for ‘bandhs’ block movement of public and private transport halt rail movements and launch surprise attacks on police and administration The objective is total blockade of economic activities and destabilising the government’s functioning PLGA Week (2 to 8 December): Recruitment drive of Maoists TCOC Week (15-21 April): Tactical Counter-Offensive Campaign (TCOC) is observed as ‘Black days’ In fact the TCOC period begins from 10 March onwards and continues till June when Maoists launch big and violent ambushes Security forces are on their maximum vigil as they anticipate audacious attacks Jan Pituri Saptah (4-12 June): Coincides with TCOC period During the week Maoists pay condolences to cadre killed in police encounters and also launch attacks as revenge They cause road and rail blockade and roads are damaged as a mark of protest without caring for the public inconvenience Shaheed or Martyrs’ Week (28 July-3 August):Maoists damage public properties and block public transport during the period In 2008-09 Maoists blew up power transmission line from Korba to Narayanpur which caused a complete blackout in Bastar for a fortnight Republic Day and Independence Day: Wherever possible Maoists don’t allow hoisting of the tricolour in village schools on 26 January and 15 August They observe it as ‘Black Day’ and use black flags and badges to mark protest The trust deficit against the government agencies amongst the tribals — which is due to decades of negligence and apathy towards the population and police excesses in the name of hunting down Maoists — have created a fertile ground for CPI (Maoist) to use its architecture to spread its ideology of LWE across Dandakaranya and radicalise young minds to build future cadre In many cases it’s a Hobson’s choice for the poor innocent tribals — either support Maoists or support the police “But in either case we’ve to die If we support police and inform them about Naxals the latter will kill us And when we’re compelled to support or accept the janatana sarkar we’re branded as ‘Maoists’ by the establishment There’s no one to save us” a few tribals in an interior village of Sukma district complained This scenario is almost similar in the interior-most villages in Maoist-affected districts in Bastar Tribal activist Soni Sori said "On one hand Adivasis have to face the ire of Maoists who either kill them or force them out of the village and on the other hand they are harassed by the police They have nowhere to go" Next up: My next destination is Chitaloor village by the banks of river Indravati in Bastar
