US embassy security chief killed in Yemen

The US embassy in Sanaa has been the site of several protests in recent months
The Yemeni chief of security at the US embassy in Sanaa has been assassinated, security officials have said.

Qassem Aqlani, who was reportedly in his fifties, was shot dead while on his way to work early on Thursday. A gunman on a motorcycle reportedly opened fire at him and fled the scene.

Aqlani had been working for the US embassy in the Yemeni capital for nearly 20 years.

A US diplomat said Aqlani was in charge of coordinating a US and Yemeni probe into an attack last month on the embassy by protesters angry over an anti-Islam film that triggered a wave of deadly demonstrations across the Muslim world.

The attack comes as Yemen's US-backed government is waging an offensive against al-Qaeda's branch in the country, taking back territory and cities in the south that the group seized last year.

The assassination resembles other attacks recently that have targeted Yemeni intelligence, military and security officials.

Those attacks are believed to be in retaliation for a military offensive by Yemen's US-backed government against Yemen-based Al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP).

"Most people, fortunately, don't want to chew peoples' faces off," says David Levey, a spokesperson for the DEA. "But it's all across the board, and it's often unpredictable." There are more and more tales of bath salt-related cannibalism popping up, but that doesn't mean the salts are causing a zombie epidemic. Dr. Mark Ryan, Director of the Louisiana Poison Center, says the events, though relatively infrequent, are "unusual, so they get our attention."

Judge rules against Occupy Wall Street encampment

Submitted by: motoxbudd @ 04:19 PM | Tuesday, November 15, 2011 | (url: http://hosted.ap....)

NEW YORK (AP) -- A New York judge has upheld the city's dismantling of the Occupy Wall Street encampment, saying that the protesters' first amendment rights don't entitle them to camp out indefinitely in the plaza.

Supreme Court Justice Michael Stallman on Tuesday denied a motion by the demonstrators seeking to be allowed back into the park with their tents and sleeping bags.

Police cleared out the protesters in a nighttime sweep early Tuesday. The judge upheld the city's effective eviction of the protesters after an emergency appeal by the National Lawyers Guild.

The protesters have been camped out in privately owned Zuccotti Park since mid-September. Mayor Michael Bloomberg said he ordered the sweep because health and safety conditions and become "intolerable" in the crowded plaza.

IN RESPONSE, OWS PROTESTORS HAS ISSUED A CITY WIDE PLEA FOR EVERYONE IN SUPPORT OF A FREE AMERICA TO COME DOWN TO Zuccotti Park NOW, TO SEND A CLEAR MESSAGE THAT THIS IS A LAND OF THE PEOPLE, NOT POLICE!!! [/I][/B][/COLOR][/FONT][/SIZE]

Australia to count camel shooting as carbon credit

Submitted by: motoxbudd @ 12:34 AM | Friday, June 10, 2011 | (url: http://news.scots...)

Marksmen could be paid to gun down Australia's vast herds of methane-belching camels that roam the Outback in an attempt to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
