Wounded Indiana teacher 'ran towards bullets' as he stopped school shooter »

Wounded Indiana teacher 'ran towards bullets' as he stopped school shooterAn Indiana middle school student armed with two handguns opened fire inside his science classroom on Friday, authorities said, wounding a classmate and a teacher whose swift intervention was credited with saving lives. The shooter, who had asked to be dismissed from the class before returning with the guns, was arrested "extremely quickly" after the incident around 9 am at Noblesville West Middle School, police Chief Kevin Jowitt said.  Authorities didn’t release his name or say whether he had been in trouble before but indicated he likely acted alone. Seventh-grader Ethan Stonebraker said the student was acting suspiciously when he walked into the room while the class was taking a test. He said science teacher Jason Seaman likely averted a catastrophe. "Our science teacher immediately ran at him, swatted a gun out of his hand and tackled him to the ground," Stonebraker said. "If it weren’t for him, more of us would have been injured for sure." Stonebraker told ABC News that Seaman threw a basketball at the shooter and ran toward the bullets as screaming students sought cover behind a table. Evacuated middle school students wait on a bus outside Noblesville High School  Credit: Getty He said he also knew the suspected gunman, whom he described as "a nice kid most of the times" and said he often joked with the classmates. "It’s just a shock he would do something like that," Stonebraker said. The attack comes a week after an attack at a high school in Santa Fe, Texas, that killed eight students and two teachers, and months after the school attack that killed 17 people in Parkland, Florida. The Florida attack inspired students from that school and others throughout the country to call for more restrictions on access to guns. Seaman’s brother, Jeremy Seaman, told The Indianapolis Star that his brother was shot three times and was undergoing surgery. He said he was conscious after the shooting and talked with his wife, telling her he was OK. Jeremy Seaman, who now lives in Arizona, said his brother was a defensive end for Southern Illinois University’s football team and has never been a person to run away. Evacuated students and staff march to buses to be carried offsite outside Noblesville West Middle School  Credit: Getty Authorities released no information about conditions of the two victims, who were taken to Indianapolis hospitals. Indiana University Health spokeswoman Danielle Sirilla said the teacher was taken to IU Health Methodist Hospital and the wounded student was taken to Riley Hospital for Children. She didn’t know the seriousness of their injuries. Hours after the shooting, law enforcement agents sealed off part of an upmarket neighbourhood in Noblesville but weren’t commenting on whether the suspect lived there. Sandy McWilliams, a member of a landscaping crew working nearby, said six officers toting assault rifles entered a home. Students were bused to the Noblesville High School gym, where hundreds of parents and other family members arrived to retrieve them. Authorities referred to a prompt and heroic response at the school but didn’t confirm accounts of the teacher tackling the student or describe the role of the resource officer who was stationed at the school. Florida shooting | Victims' families speak out in the White House When asked to elaborate on his praise of the response, Indiana State Police Superintendent Doug Carter said: "Wait ’til one day we can tell you that story. You’ll be proud of them, too." Eighth-grader Chris Navarro said he was inside an auditorium when he heard several gunshots about a minute before the bell rang for the change in classes. "The speaker came on and said we were on lockdown and people rushed in and we went to the back of the room. I went into this little room in the back with three other people," he said. Jennifer Morris, who was among the worried parents who rushed to get their kids, appeared slightly dazed and said she was at work when her 14-year-old son sent a text message about the shooting, stunning her.  "He said, ’I’m OK, please come get me.’ That was probably 20 minutes after it happened," Morris said. "It’s like a bad dream. I don’t know how you get the kids through this. This isn’t something you’re trained for as a parent." Instructional Assistant Paige Rose reacts outside Noblesville West Middle School Credit: Getty Gov. Eric Holcomb, who was returning from a trip to Europe on Friday, issued a statement saying he and other state leaders were getting updates about the situation and that 100 state police officers had been made available to work with local law enforcement. "Our thoughts are with all those affected by this horrible situation," Holcomb said. Noblesville, which is about 20 miles (32 kilometers) northeast of Indianapolis, is home to about 50,000 people. The middle school has about 1,300 students from grades 6-8. The school’s academic year was scheduled to end next Friday. Indiana’s Senate Democrats issued a statement in response to Friday’s school shooting expressing their condolences to the victims and calling for steps to prevent such shootings, including restrictions on guns.

Pakistan ends colonial-era arrangement as it brings restive tribal border area into mainstream politics »
24 May 2018, 17:46

Pakistan ends colonial-era arrangement as it brings restive tribal border area into mainstream politicsPakistan’s lower house has voted for landmark reform that would end draconian colonial era laws making the country’s restive tribal areas subject to collective punishment and beyond the protection of courts. The national assembly voted to bring the semi-autonomous border areas at the centre of the war on Islamist terrorism into the mainstream political fold by incorporating them into a neighbouring province. The move would usher in widespread political reform and see the writ of Pakistan’s courts extend into areas currently ruled by all powerful political agents in a throwback to the British Raj. After independence Pakistan has continued to govern the seven tribal districts making up the Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA) with directly appointed agents wielding nearly total power. It has also kept the colonial-era Frontier Crimes Regulations which left residents with no recourse to courts and liable to face collective punishment for the crimes of tribe members. FATA has been a notorious haven for Islamist militants since the 9/11 attacks and the site of regular military operations to weed out terrorist groups from the districts along Afghanistan’s border. The amendment, which now passes to the senate and ultimately still needs presidential approval, will see FATA officially merged into neighbouring Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province. The tribal districts -- Bajaur, Khyber, Kurram, Mohmand, North Waziristan, Orakzai and South Waziristan -- are home to some five million residents, mainly ethnic Pashtuns. They have long complained they are denied aid and investment because of their special status. "Today this house has approved a historic bill, which will have very positive effects for Pakistan. I thank the opposition for their support," Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi told the assembly. "We need to provide [FATA residents] with all those facilities which are available to the people in the rest of Pakistan," he added. Rahimullah Yusufzai, a regional analyst and an expert on the tribal areas, told AFP: "Pakistan's tribal areas have long been neglected. The government has taken this decision very late." But Ayaz Wazir, a former ambassador and analyst originally from FATA said the districts were unready for the change. He said: “The way the FATA legislation was done quickly, there will be no political and economic  improvement for the people of FATA”. "There is no infrastructure in FATA to serve people there is no police, courts or administrative structure. How will people address their issues? In the past they were resolving through political agents and jirgas and after this legislation there is no immediate substitute”.

MH17: Plane shot down with Russian military missile launcher, investigators conclude »
24 May 2018, 10:18

MH17: Plane shot down with Russian military missile launcher, investigators concludeAn international investigation has said the Russian military brought the missile that downed Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 into eastern Ukraine, leading to the tragedy that killed 298 people.  The Dutch-led Joint Investigation Team said last year the Buk 9M38 surface-to-air missile in question arrived from Russia and was fired from territory held by Russia-backed separatists.  But Thursday's press conference in the Netherlands for the first time implicated the Russian military, of which president Vladimir Putin is the commander in chief, in the catastrophe that shocked the world in July 2014.  Although the JIT did not say who pulled the trigger, the conclusion that the 53rd anti-aircraft brigade from Kursk, a unit of a “few hundred people,” was operating the missile marks a step closer to naming the perpetrators.  Investigators said they were working toward a court case in the Netherlands against those who fired the Buk Telar missile system as well as higher-ups in their chain of command. They are reportedly focusing on 100 or so suspects.  Dutch police investigator Wilbert Paulissen next to the engine casing and thrust nozzile of the missile that brought down MH17 Credit: FRANCOIS LENOIR /Reuters The allegations come after Yulia Skripal said she was lucky to have survived an “attempted assassination” with a nerve agent in Salisbury, raising pressure on Russia three weeks before the start of the World Cup here.  The JIT said it had again requested information from Russia, which had failed to tell it of this missile unit's activities, and put out another open call for confidential witness testimony.  “We are looking for people that were directly or indirectly involved in the downing of MH17, but we're also thinking of individuals who were responsible for the operation that deployed the Buk Telar,” said Wilbert Paulissen, head of the Dutch national police. Russian officials began pushing back against the Dutch allegation almost immediately. Moscow has since the days after the plane went down put out a raft of unlikely theories to shift the blame to Ukraine and vetoed a proposed United Nations tribunal. Video: The Telegraph's Roland Oliphant visits site of downed jet Yury Shvytkin, a member of parliament from the ruling party, called the investigation “aggression against our country like that during the Skripal case” and claimed it would have to “at the minimum” find a soldier's fingerprints on the Buk missile to accuse Moscow. One of the two main Russian state television channels ignored the news on Thursday afternoon, while the other posted a news item on its website that avoided any mention of the Russian military involvement.  The defence ministry could not immediately be reached for comment, even as it continued to post on social media footage tanks and ships at war games. Those killed when the missile hit MH17 at 33,000 feet, raining bodies and debris onto the farm fields below, were mostly Dutch but also of 17 other nationalities including British, Australian, Malaysian and Indonesian. Mr Paulissen said a “fingerprint for the missile” had been established through seven markings and features on the sides of the launcher visible in social media images. Photographs, videos and witness testimony traced the progress of this launcher in a convoy from Kursk to the Ukrainian border in June 2014, and it was photographed again near the launch site on the day of the catastrophe.  Investigators also detonated a Buk missile to compare the debris to that found in the fields and bodies of MH17 victims, according to Australian federal police commander Jennifer Hurst. She displayed an engine casing and thrust nozzle from the Buk responsible with a serial number she said indicated it had been produced at a factory near Moscow in 1986. FAQ | Flight MH17 Asked whether there were satellite images of the launch, Dutch chief prosecutor Fred Westerbeke said the investigation had more information that it could not reveal at the risk of “showing our cards to the other side”. He added it was entering the “last phase” ahead of possible legal proceedings.  Relatives of MH17 victims said in a letter in the independent newspaper Novaya Gazeta on Wednesday that a “shadow” hangs over the World Cup, and the “Russian leaders who will profess to welcome the world with open arms, are those who are chiefly to blame for shattering our world”.
