Iraq sentences German and French Isil members to life in prison

  
An Iraqi court on Monday sentenced a French man and a German woman to life in prison in the latest punishments handed down for belonging to the Islamic State jihadist group. Frenchman Lahcen Gueboudj, 58, and a German woman whose name was given only as Nadia were sentenced separately at the Baghdad central criminal court. Nadia's mother, a German woman of Moroccan origin, was sentenced to death in January for Isil membership but the sentence was later commuted to life, which in Iraq is equivalent to 20 years. The mother and daughter were arrested in July 2017 in Mosul, the jihadists' former de-facto capital in Iraq where the government declared victory over Isil in December last year. Neekor Israel Abdul Karim, 28, from Uzbekistan is convicted of joining Isil in Baghdad Central Criminal Court, on April 25 Credit: Sam Tarling for The Telegraph Wearing a black abaya in court, Nadia said she travelled from Syria to Iraq "to run away from the people of IS". Speaking in German with a few Arabic words, she said she travelled to Syria from Turkey with her mother, her daughter Yamana and her mentally disabled sister who was killed in a bombardment. Nadia's lawyer stressed that she was a minor at the time and that her marriage to an Isil jihadist in Syria was "not a decision taken by an adult in full conscience". The French defendant, meanwhile, refuted statements made during his interrogations. "I signed confessions in Arabic without knowing what was written," said Gueboudj, with short grey hair and stubble, wearing a brown prison uniform. "I would never have left France, if my eldest son Nabil, 25-years-old, hadn't gone to Syria," he said in French. "I wanted to convince him to return with us to France," added Gueboudj. The French citizen had travelled with his wife and children to Turkey before entering Syria, and later being arrested in Iraq.......

A tiny Pomeranian has just won Halloween, and it's only August.  Just a hat and coat is all Instagram star Bertram needed to pull off one perfect rendition of polite adventurer and duffle raincoat fan Paddington Bear, and by gum, it's perfect. So my Halloween costume arrived a few months early ���� tho makes a pretty fun fetch toy for now #chocolatepom #pomeranian A post shared by Bertram The Pomeranian (@bertiebertthepom) on Aug 4, 2018 at 2:30pm PDT Look at the little hat. The little coat! Its little nose. Its unquenchable sense of adventure, and potentially endless capacity for getting into trouble! Whether, like Paddington, Bertram has a love of marmalade sandwiches, we're not sure. As well as representing one of the most adorable characters in our lives to date, Bertram's made a solid choice for a timely Halloween costume, seeing as though in January 2018, Paddington 2 snatched a new record for the best-reviewed film of all time on Rotten Tomatoes. SEE ALSO: Here are pictures of fluffy dogs we know you want Bertram, an adorable rescue pup who dwells in New York City's The Hole art gallery, is usually a subtle dresser-upperer, with his owners filling his wardrobe with tiny ties, bowties, sun hats, and woollen knits, so the Paddington get-up seems a natural choice .  Check out his tiny, tiny polo shirts.

North Korea urges US to drop sanctions as it accuses Washington of 'acting opposite' to Singapore pledges

  
North Korea's state media called on Monday for the United States to ditch crippling economic sanctions as a reward for Pyongyang's show of good faith in ending its nuclear weapons testing and transferring the remains of American troops killed in the Korean War. The calls came just days after a confidential United Nations report concluded that the pariah regime has not stopped its nuclear and missile programmes, and continues to conduct illegal trades of oil, coal and other commodities, reported Reuters. Kim Jong-un, North Korea's leader, and Donald Trump, the US President, agreed at a June summit in Singapore to work towards "complete denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula" but little progress has been made amid differing interpretations on both sides of what the declaration means. The two countries sparred over the weekend, with Ri Yong-ho, the North's foreign minister, accusing Washington of dragging its feet over confidence-building measures since the summit and stressing the need for "simultaneous actions and phased steps." Kim Jong-un appears to be enjoying the hot North Korean summer despite Pyongyang's sharp criticism of ongoing international sanctions  Credit: KCNA via KNS /AFP His criticism was revealed in a transcript of a closed-door meeting of top diplomats at an Asian security meeting, also in Singapore, attended by Mike Pompeo, the US Secretary of State. Mr Ri hit out at Washington for "retreating" from ending the 1950-53 Korean War, which concluded with an armistice, not a peace treaty, leaving US-led United Nations forces, and South Korea, technically still at war with the North. The North's state media added fuel to the fire, accusing Washington of "acting opposite" to its plan to improve ties, despite Pyongyang making goodwill gestures. "There have been outrageous arguments coming out of the US State Department that it won't ease sanctions until a denuclearisation is completed, and reinforcing sanctions is a way to raise its negotiating power," the Rodong Sinmun newspaper said in an editorial. In quotes | Singapore summit North Korea Trump Kim Senior US officials, including Admiral Harry Harris, the new ambassador to Seoul, have also called for Pyongyang to start giving up its nuclear weapons before any breakthrough on ending the war. "One of the things that hasn't happened is the demonstrable moves toward denuclearisation before we can entertain something like the end-of-war declaration," Mr Harris told reporters last week. His statement was backed by Mr Pompeo, who suggested at the weekend that the North's continued work on its weapons programme was inconsistent with Kim's commitment to denuclearise. However, US and South Korean officials have also been at pains to show continued conciliatory gestures, and sources told CNN that there is a "strong possibility" of a second summit between Kim Jong-un and President Trump later this year. Mr Pompeo, meanwhile, stressed that despite the tense exchange over the weekend, Mr Ri had made clear that his country was still willing to denuclearise, in sharp contrast to the "anger" expressed by Pyongyang in recent years.
