Seventeen singer posts emotional tribute to wife and bandmates washed away by Indonesia tsunami

  
The lead singer of a band whose concert on Java was hit by the Indonesian tsunami issued an emotional appeal for fans to pray for his missing wife and band members swept away by the giant wave. Riefian Fajarsyah, known as Ifan, was playing with his pop-rock band Seventeen at the Tanjung Lesung Beach Resort when a wall of water slammed into the stage, sending it surging through the crowd. Swept out to sea, Mr Fajarsyah believed he would die but finally managed to make it back to shore. Two other band members and two of his crew, however, were killed, while his wife Dylan and drummer Andi have not been found. In a message on his Instagram, the singer asked his 260,000 followers to pray for the return of the missing, and for those who had perished.  "Bro @andi_seventeen, please come back home. I am the only one left," Mr Fajarsyah wrote of his drummer, Windu Andi Darmawan, known as Andi.  He also pleaded for the safe return of his wife, Dylan Sahara, whose 26th birthday it was on Sunday. Underneath a black and white picture of the couple on a trip to Paris, Mr Fajarsyah wrote:  "Today is your birthday. I want to say happy birthday to you in person. Please come back home quickly, my dear @Dylan_Sahara." View this post on Instagram Minta doanya agar istri saya @dylan_sahara , trus mas @hermanseventeen @andi_seventeen sama @uje17_rukmanarustam cepet ktmu dalam keadaan selamat sehat walafiat. Minta ikhlas nya buat orang2 tersayang mas @baniseventeen dan mas @oki_wijaya A post shared by Riefian Fajarsyah (@ifanseventeen) on Dec 22, 2018 at 4:04pm PST To his deceased band and crew members, he bade goodbye. "May your souls rest with Allah," the singer said.  The popular band, who have released six albums in their 19 years together, were in the middle of the second song of their performance when the tsunami smashed through the beachside marquee. A video of the moment it hit shows fans clapping and cheering before a wave rips under the stage, sending the band members and their equipment crashing into those dancing at the front. The footage then cuts out. Mr Fajarsyah said that before he knew what was happening, he found himself in the sea. Unable to see much in the dark, he could hear cries of panic around him, and could vaguely make out flailing hands of those trying to stay above water - at least 10 people, he later estimated.  Speaking to a national TV station, the singer said he had been close to giving up. "I didn't think I could make to the beach line. I feel I am really in the sea and about to die," he said.  With the noises around him fading into quiet, Mr Fajarsyah believed those around him had drowned. But at the last, he decided he must try to reach the shore, and prayed that he would survive.  The band have been together for 19 years Trying desperately to swim back, he made little progress against the rushing water, and was again losing hope. But finally, he was hit by a floating box, and was able to use it to swim to a tree. He said later that he believed he had seen "probably around 20 to 24 corpses" in the sea. Some 30 minutes later, after the water had receded, Mr Fajarsyah got down from the tree. Unable to walk normally and covered in scratches and cuts, he started searching, explaining:  "I have to find my band family as well as my wife." On the beach, he found his bassist Muhammad Awal Nurbani, nicknamed Bani, dead. In tears, the singer helped move his body before being taken to the medical clinic himself. There he learned his road manager, Oki Wijaya, had also been killed.  The band's guitarist, named as Herman, and another crew member, Ujang, were also later confirmed to have died.  View this post on Instagram Hari ini kamu ulang tahun, aku mau ucapin langsung, cepet pulang sayang @dylan_sahara A post shared by Riefian Fajarsyah (@ifanseventeen) on Dec 23, 2018 at 1:36am PST In a phone interview, the band's manager said they believed Mr Fajarsyah's wife might have survived, saying there had been a reported sighting of

Chase Bishop was on holiday when he visited the Mile High Spirits nightclub in Denver, Colorado one evening last June With a crowd of late night revellers cheering him on, the 30-year-old showed off the impressive gymnastic manoeuvre during which his loaded gun fell from the waistband of his trousers. As Bishop bent down to pick up the weapon from the floor, it discharged into the screaming crowd and hit Tom Reddington, a 24-year-old former Amazon warehouse worker, in the leg.  A video of the incident, which shows the agent walking off the dance floor with his hands in the air, subsequently went viral on social media. At the time, Mr Reddington told US media that he thought "some idiot had set off a fire cracker" before looking down at his leg and seeing  the blood. FBI agent Chase Bishop was spared a prison term Credit: REUTERS/File Photo He told the court hearing in Denver on Friday that he has since lost his job and may never be able to run again as a result of the injury. "I have done months of physical therapy,"  he said. "I have sought counselling. However, being in public, especially seeing law enforcement with guns, makes me very uncomfortable." However, he added that he does not hold a personal grudge against Bishop and didn't think he deserved to spend years in jail. "I've done stupid things at bars to impress girls, too," he said but that he hoped he would not be allowed to own a gun for a "long time". Under his deal with prosecutors, Bishop was sentenced to two years probation. He was also fined $1,200 and ordered to pay compensation to the victim.  Speaking in court, he said: "My whole goal in life is to care, protect and serve people," the  agent told the judge  as he pleaded guilty to third degree assault. "I never expected the result of my actions to lead to something like this." Kelsey Pietranton, an FBI spokeswoman,  declined to say if he would continue to work at the agency.......

Trump forces Mattis out of Pentagon early as Turkish troops mass on Syrian border

  
President Donald Trump announced on Sunday that he was replacing James Mattis as secretary of defence two months earlier than had been expected, amid what officials said was anger at the general's resignation letter and the attention it had received. Mr Trump's new appointment, the current deputy secretary of defence, Patrick Shanahan, will begin work on January, pushing out his boss from the post he was due to hold until the end of February. Though Mr Shanahan's appointment had been widely predicted, it had not been expected so suddenly. It effectively means General Mattis, who wrote a scathing resignation letter condemning the US leader's decision to withdraw troops from Syria and his disrespectful handling of allies, may not even return to the Pentagon to clear his desk. A senior White House official said that Mr Trump was irked by the attention given to Gen. Mattis' rebuke of his foreign policy. "He just wants a smooth, more quick transition and felt that dragging it out for a couple of months is not good," the official told the Associated Press on condition of anonymity. Pentagon officials had previously insisted Gen. Mattis would stay through February, when he would attend a NATO defence ministers meeting.     Tweeting the announcement from the White House on Sunday, Mr Trump wrote: "I am pleased to announce that our very talented Deputy Secretary of Defense, Patrick Shanahan, will assume the title of Acting Secretary of Defense starting January 1, 2019. Patrick has a long list of accomplishments while serving as Deputy, & previously Boeing. He will be great!" It was unclear whether Gen Mattis had been informed prior to the announcement.   Minutes later, further questions were raised as the president went on to appear to link the Syria withdrawal to expanding trade deals with Turkey - just as Turkish troops began to mobilise on the Syrian border. Mr Trump wrote: "I just had a long and productive call with President @RT_Erdogan of Turkey. We discussed ISIS, our mutual involvement in Syria, & the slow & highly coordinated pullout of US troops from the area. After many years they are coming home. We also discussed heavily expanded Trade." Last week, Gen. Mattis, a respected military leader who served under both Barack Obama and George Bush, infuriated Mr Trump with an excoriating resignation letter in which he attacked his unilateral decision to withdraw troops from Syria and his lack of respect for America's allies. Brett McGurk, the US ISIS envoy, also announced he was quitting. But Mr Trump's announcement was welcomed by Ankara, which had long been angered by the Western alliance with the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces in the fight against Isil.  Turkey views the Syrian Kurdish militia as an extension of the insurgency within its territory and has vowed to dislodge it fighters from the Syrian border region. Turkey has begun reinforcing its military deployment near the Syrian border for a possible operation against Syrian Kurdish militia  Credit: AFP As the news that the general was being forced out broke, it was reported that Turkey had begun sending military reinforcements to the Syrian border - the fallout from America's  withdrawal announcement apparently starting to take effect. According to the Turkish news station TRT, which broadcast footage, soldiers were heading to the town of Manbij, an area controlled by Kurdish forces. The British-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights also confirmed the movement. "Tens of soldiers and more than 50 military gears including trucks and armoured personnel carriers as well as other carriers that carry armoured vehicles in addition to other material and ammunition where it headed to the countryside of Manbij area, said Rami Abdel Rahman, the head of the SOHR. "Around 35 tanks and other heavy weapons, carried aboard tank carriers, crossed the Jarablus border crossing in the early evening."  Although the Americans have issued no timeline for withdrawal, it emerged on Friday

US government shutdown 'could stretch into new year' says Trump's acting chief of staff

  
The US government shutdown could continue into the New Year with no clear resolution in sight, Mick Mulvaney, the new White House chief of staff, said on Sunday. As the impasse over President Donald Trump's demand for funding for a border wall entered its second day, Mr Mulvaney prepared the ground for a lengthy closure of federal departments. Congress is due to reconvene on Thursday after last minute negotiations failed on Saturday, triggering Mr Trump's decision to stay and celebrate Christmas at The White House rather than head to Mar-a-Lago as planned. "I don't think things are going to move very quickly here for the next couple days. … I think it's very possible the shutdown will go beyond the 28th and into the new Congress," Mr Mulvaney told US TV. Insisting "the ball is in the Senate's court", he said that the White House had moved down from its original demand for $5 billion and hoped Democrats would move up from their offer for $1.3 billion in border security funding. But in an interview on ABC's "This Week," he added that Mr Trump remained steadfast in his demand for wall funding. "The President's not going to not accept money for a border wall," he said. Mr Mulvaney, who is also currently the director of the Office of Management and Budget, did not give specifics on the level of the "counteroffer" made by the White House. "They were at 1.3 yesterday, we were at $5 billion a couple days ago. And the counteroffer that we gave them yesterday was between those two numbers," he said.  Meanwhile Senate Democrats, who oppose funding for the wall, contend the government could reopen immediately if Mr Trump drops his demand to extend a physical barrier along America's southern border with Mexico - a barrier which they argue would be ineffective in halting illegal immigration. But any suggestion of Mr Trump weakening on what was a major plank of his election strategy would infuriate his supporters, some of whom are already growing impatient. Last week Ann Coulter, a prominent conservative figure, stopped following Mr Trump on Twitter and branded his presidency "a joke" because of the lack of progress on the much-touted border wall. On Sunday, the president showed no sign of compromise. "The only way to stop drugs, gangs, human trafficking, criminal elements and much else from coming into our Country is with a Wall or Barrier. Drones and all of the rest are wonderful and lots of fun, but it is only a good old fashioned Wall that works!" he tweeted. Around 800,000 federal employees are affected by the shutdown. Roughly 420,000 workers are deemed essential and were expected to work unpaid with  additional 380,000 were to be furloughed, meaning they will stay home without pay.      ......

Trump, Erdogan vow to avoid Syria power vacuum after US forces leave

  
Donald Trump and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan agreed Sunday to prevent a power vacuum in Syria after US ground forces withdraw, in a phone conversation days after the US president shocked global partners by announcing Americans would leave the war-scarred country. Turkey was a rare ally that lauded Trump's momentous decision to pull the 2,000 US troops out of Syria, where they have been helping assisting in a multinational fight against IS. "The two leaders agreed to ensure coordination between their countries' military, diplomatic and other officials to avoid a power vacuum which could result following any abuse of the withdrawal and transition phase in Syria," the Turkish presidency said in a statement.......

Christmas wreath bread

  
Christmas wreath bread SERVES about 8 INGREDIENTS For the dough 250ml milk 50g butter, cubed, plus extra for greasing the bowl 2¼ tsp (1 sachet) active dry yeast 450g plain flour, plus extra for dusting 50g light-brown sugar ½ tsp sea salt 1 egg, lightly beaten icing sugar, to serve (optional) For the filling 200g currants 50g mixed candied citrus peel, chopped 1 tsp ground cinnamon 1 tsp mixed spice zest and juice of 1 lemon zest and juice of 1 orange 100g butter, at room temperature 2 tbsp light-brown sugar METHOD First make the dough. In a saucepan, heat the milk until just below boiling, then add the butter and remove from the heat. Allow to cool for five minutes – until just below body temperature – then add the yeast to the now lukewarm milk. Let stand for another 10 minutes. Combine the flour, brown sugar and salt in a large bowl, and make a well in the centre. Pour in the milk mixture. Using a wooden spoon, combine until the dough holds together. Continue kneading with your hands on a lightly floured worktop for another 10 minutes. Shape into a ball, place in a greased bowl, cover, and let rise in a warm spot for 90 minutes, or until the dough has doubled in volume. For the filling, heat the currants, peel, cinnamon, mixed spice, and lemon and orange zest and juice in a saucepan. Cook over very low heat, until the currants are nicely plumped up. Let cool. Mix in the butter and brown sugar and set aside. Knead the dough briefly once more. On a lightly floured worktop, roll it out into a rectangle about 45x30cm. Spread the filling over it using a spatula. Allow a margin of about 2cm at the long sides. Roll up the dough from a long side, moisten the bare edge with water, and press to seal the seam. Place the roll with the seam facing down. Moisten the ends of the roll as well and bend them together, forming a circle. Place the wreath on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. With a sharp knife, cut into the roll every 3cm, almost all the way through, but not quite. Pull out each cut piece, exposing the sides; the spirals will form a circular fan of swirls. Cover with a clean dish towel and allow the wreath to rise again for about 45 minutes. Preheat the oven to 200C/180C fan/gas mark 6. Brush the bread with the lightly beaten egg. Bake for about 30 minutes, until golden brown. Dust with icing sugar if you like. Recipe from Home Made Christmas, by Yvette van Boven, published by Abrams (£26.99).
