He said that the country is facing terrorism, which is being promoted as sectarianism -- a condemnable heinous conspiracy. He said that there is no sectarian conflict rather linking terrorism with any school of thought itself is terrorism because terrorists have no religion. The government should control 26 banned groups to work freely who are changing their identities everyday. Until they are stopped from working, terrorism will continue in the motherland, he said.
If the objective is saved by sacrificing everything then it is a victory and if everything is saved but the objective is compromised then no defeat could be bigger than it, says a TNFJ press release. In a special message on Muharram-ul-Haram, he said that Nato and US aggression could only be confronted by adopting the path of 'Hussainiyat' and rulers should take practical measures to save the honour and dignity of the nation.

In addition, the investigation has no information about relationship between the criminal group which included a terrorist from Taraz - Interfax-Kazakhstan and other groups, as well as international terrorist criminal groups. The investigation is under way," the spokesman of the Prosecutor-General's Office, Nurdaulet Suindikov, told a briefing in Astana today.
At the same time, he added that "since the basic details have been clarified, I think the investigation will not be long". As was reported earlier, on 12 November in Taraz a supporter of jihad, year-old Maksat Kariyev, robbed an arms shop and started shooting and committed an act of terror.

Earlier, on 31 October, two explosions rocked Atyrau. Initially, a bomb exploded in a garbage can. A few minutes later, a man blew himself up and died on the spot in a vacant lot in the Saryarka neighbourhood. The investigation revealed that the Soldiers of the Caliphate radical organization was involved in the terror attacks in Atyrau. The terrorist group that was active in the Atyrau region took orders from the Soldiers of Caliphate radical organization, formed by citizens of Kazakhstan who fight on the Afghan militants' side and who are in hiding abroad. Two blasts shook Atyrau on October 31, a bomb went off in a garbage bin first and then a suicide bomber blew himself up.
Investigators later established that the blasts were part of a criminal organization's plan to intimidate law enforcement and government officials. Bombings near the buildings of the city administration and of the prosecutor's office were part of their plan, which did not aim to kill people, however. According to An-Nahar newspaper,?

This is a scheduled meeting on the status of and was not in response to the rocket attacks yesterday. Army guards at the gate of the Filla Baidoa military headquarters in Mogadishu stopped a suicide bomber dressed in Somali military uniform from entering the base, prompting the attacker to detonate the explosives, state-run Radio Mogadishu said.
National Army Chief Abdelkarim Yusuf Adan said the army guards stopped the attacker from getting into the base, adding that eight soldiers were slightly injured by the explosion. Other reports said some of the wounded soldiers died of their injuries at hospital, but the news has not yet been verified. The Somali government said that militant group of Al-Shabaab was behind the attack, but the group, which had been carrying out similar attacks, made no comment on the latest assault.
The group had been waging low-level attacks against Somali government forces and African Union AU peacekeepers in Mogadishu since their withdrawal from the capital in August. A number of people, mostly civilians, have either been killed or wounded in separate roadside bomb and grenade attacks in Mogadishu this week. Al-Shabaab militants have vowed to carry out guerilla attacks following their retreat from the capital after government forces and AU peacekeepers launched major offensives there.
A first group of embassy staff are reported to be flying out to Dubai. The Foreign Office has said that "some staff" are leaving "for their own safety", but has not confirmed if all its diplomats are being pulled out. The attack followed Britain's decision to impose further sanctions on Iran over its nuclear programme. It led to Iran reducing diplomatic relations with the UK. Protesters ransacked the embassy and a UK residential compound in the capital, burning British flags and a car. Iran has said it regretted the incident. With flowers and laurel wreathes, fourteen army and security forces martyrs on Tuesday were escorted from Damascus Police Hospital and Tishreen, Homs and Tartous Military Hospitals to their final resting place in their cities and villages.
The martyrs were targeted by the armed terrorist groups while they were in the line of duty in Homs and Damascus Countryside. Solemn processions were held for the martyrs as they were carried on shoulders and covered with the national flag while the Military Band was playing the "Martyr" and the "Farewell" music. The families of the martyrs expressed pride in their son's martyrdom, saying that they sacrificed their lives to defend their homeland, stressing that Syria will remain steadfast in the face of the conspiracy which targets its unity and stability.
They said that the Syrian people will overcome this ordeal through national unity, and that the blood of the martyrs will protect Syria and make it stronger in the face of challenges. The martyrs' relatives affirmed their readiness to sacrifice their own lives to defend Syria, holding the Arab League and the opposition abroad responsible for the murder and violence against the army and civilians, calling for punishing those responsible for the crimes against their sons. They affirmed that the martyrs were devoted to their country, and that martyrdom is the least one could offer for the sake of Syria and its dignity, stressing that Syria is capable of confronting the mentality of destruction adopted by armed terrorist groups.
Taliban militants fighting Afghan and NATO-led troops have been largely relying on suicide and roadside bombings over the past couple of years. In the latest roadside bombing for which the Taliban outfit claimed responsibility, one NATO soldier sustained injuries in northern Baghlan province on Tuesday. A source at Homs Customs told SANA that the clash resulted in arresting those who were in the car which was carrying several firearms including RPGs, guns, machine guns anda large amount of ammunition.

Armed Group Burglarizes Publications Distribution Truck in Hama An armed terrorist group driving two cars, one with no registration plate and the other with disfigured plate, on Tuesday morning burglarized a closed Isuzu truck with registration plate which belongs to the Syrian Establishment of Publications Distribution in Hama governorate, central Syria.
A source at the Establishment told SANA that the truck was heading to Aleppo governorate after delivering publications to Hama when a terrorist group blocked the driver's way in Mourk area and took the car to an unknown place after releasing the driver, Mohammed Amin Mohammad. Armed terrorist groups intercepted trucks of the Establishment several times before while distributing publications to Aleppo and Hama governorates.

Three stolen vehicles, one of them booby-trapped, with fake plates were also found. Inside the cars there found to be hand grenades, fake car plates, loudspeakers and quivers.

Brooks said during his meeting with Gen. Tajik istan gained independence with the fall of the Soviet Union more than 15 years ago, only to endure a bloody five-year civil war. The Russian Federation was secured the Tajik -Afghan border until , at which point the government of Tajik istan assumed the difficult task of defending its border against terrorist forces and narcotics smugglers.
Much of the challenge is due to the mountainous terrain and Tajik istan's limited military capabilities. With the help of Third Army, the Tajik istan military has trained alongside U. Third Army's roles in joint training events help build stronger relationships between these partnering nations. Brooks said to Gen. Brooks said to Gen-Lt. Ramil Nadirov, Chief of General Staff.

With visits like these, the Third Army is strengthening ties by educating, inspiring, and building relationships with our partner nations through joint operations and training events. Would be truly wicked if accurate, however I do have doubts.
I've chucked and earlier article at the bottom of the page. The previous report we had said that the NTC was planning on "supporting" the Syrian rebels. From the Libyan point of view it makes sense as a way to get a bunch of former fighters off your back and into some fighting. No idea on the authenticity of the original source but worth watching for confirmation or denial anywhere else.
It has sent of its troops to support local militants against the Assad regime, according to media reports. The fighters have joined the Free Syria Army, the militant group carrying out attacks on government forces in Syria, reports the Egyptian news website Al-Ray Al-Arabi citing its sources. The report says the troops entered Syria through Turkish territory. The NTC allegedly welcomed volunteers to join the surge. The Libyan governing body reportedly pledged to supply arms, money and fighters to the Syrians. Bashar Assad?

The Libyan population is in possession of many weapons, which they received during the civil war by plundering military depots, through smuggling or as aid from NATO members and countries like Qatar, which took part in the ousting of Muammar Gaddafi. The NTC has difficulties in disarming the ex-rebels, who want to keep their firearms, either for personal protection or as means to make their living.
In November, the Libyan capital, Tripoli, saw a mass protest by the rebels, who demanded that the NTC pay their wages. Some even threatened to overthrow the new government the way they did with the previous one, unless their demands are met. Funneling armed, underemployed and eager-to-fight youngsters to another country could be a convenient move for the NTC. The Syrian government, however, is likely to see them as mercenaries, which NATO member Turkey allowed into their country as an alternative to a full-scale military campaign, which is impossible without the sanction of the United Nations Security Council.
NTC sources say Libya will offer aid, fighters to Syrian revolutionaries Excerpt from report by Khalid Mahmud headlined: "Libyan sources to Al-Sharq al-Awsat: We will offer all the necessary support to the Syrian revolutionaries to get rid of Al-Asad's regime," published by Saudi-owned leading pan-Arab daily Al-Sharq al-Awsat website on 27 November Libyan National Transitional Council [NTC] officials have said to Al-Sharq al-Awsat that the NTC has decided to go "the full way in offering all possible aid" to the Syrian civilians, who demand the toppling of the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Asad in order to spite the Syrian regime, which the Libyan revolutionaries accuse of offering logistic and military support in the past to the regime of the late Col Mu'ammar al-Qadhafi.
An informed source at the Libyan NTC has revealed to Al-Sharq al-Awsat that this unannounced resolution implicitly means offering money, military equipment, in addition to fighters to support what the source described as the "popular revolution" in Syria to topple Al-Asad's regime. The source, who asked us not to identify him, adds in a telephone interview from the Libyan capital Tripoli: "Yes, the representatives of the Syrian revolution have asked us to give them support, and we have promised to respond to their requests according to the available circumstances and resources.
We believe that the Al-Asad regime ought to go, and we will help in achieving this. The source indicates that Libya supports the resolutions to impose sanctions on the Syrian regime at all regional and international forums until this regime acquiesces to the will of its people, as the source says.
With talks that are supposed to take place in the Turkish capital between Abd-al-Hakim Bilhaj, official in charge of the Tripoli Military Council, and Turkish officials, the predictions escalate about the Libyan revolutionaries offering military support to their Syrian counterparts. Libyan sources, who refuse to be identified, say that the NTC announcement of Bilhaj's presence in Turkey to inspect the situation of the Libyan wounded being treated there perhaps is a media coverage for his mission of conducting secret talks with representatives of the Syrian National Council and Turkish Government officials aimed at discussing the way to offer aid to the popular revolution in Syria.
Syrian National Council officials, during a semi-secret visit to Libya at the end of last month and the beginning of this month, conducted talks with various Libyan national powers and the NTC with the aim of getting military and logistic aid to enable the demonstrators in Syria to confront the bloody oppression by the Al-Asad regime. These meetings included a large number of commanders of the revolutionaries and security battalions, in addition to NTC officials. Abdallah Nakir, chairman the Council of Tripoli's Revolutionaries, who met the delegation of the Syrian National Council earlier, has told Al-Sharq al-Awsat that the Syrian delegation asked for military and financial aid and advice on the way to confront the oppression practiced by the Syrian authorities against the unarmed demonstrators in the various Syrian cities.
Nakir adds: "Of course they asked for all types of aid they can get, from weapons and money to fighters. We consider that everyone ought to support the pursuits of these people to get rid of Al-Asad's regime. However, the establishment of a "buffer zone" inside Syria, as the Arab League promotes, or the emergence of a region that completely is under the control of the Syrian revolutionaries might resolve these problems. On the other hand sources in the Libyan city of Misratah do not exclude the possibility that cargoes of weapons have been already sent. A man, who previously transported weapons to the Libyan revolutionaries, has reported that smugglers have been arrested in Misratah while selling small arms to Syrian buyers.
Humaydah al-Majiri, member of Tripoli's Military Council, says that the Libyans are in solidarity with the Syrian cause. Al-Majiri adds: "Bashar sent weapons to Al-Qadhafi when he was fighting us. There are hundreds who want to go to Syria to fight, or to offer all the help they can. A special group was set up to investigate the incident. When firing at people the perpetrator shouted "Allahu Akbar". One of the injured persons is soldier, while another is car park guard. The perpetrator was detained at the Topkapi Museum.

A new report detailing just how well armed right-wing extremists are in the country will do little to assuage their fears. Over weapons were confiscated from radical groups in and For more detailed information, please click on the "i" symbol. Germany's neo-Nazis, it would appear, are better armed than previously thought. According to a report filed this week by the German Interior Ministry in response to a parliamentary inquiry, authorities in the country confiscated weapons from right-wing extremists in the two-year period from to Included among the finds were handguns, rifles and even military-grade firearms.
In addition, police seized 40 explosive devices, all manner of pepper sprays and well over blades. The news comes as Germany continues to reel from revelations that a neo-Nazi terror cell based in the eastern German town of Zwickau was responsible for a nine-victim murder spree targeting immigrants from to in addition to the killing of a police officer in While neo-Nazi violence in Germany has long been acknowledged, the discovery of the murderous trio, which had spent 14 years under cover, has come as a shock.
Massive criticism in recent weeks has centered on the Office for the Protection of the Constitution, Germany's domestic intelligence agency. The agency has chapters in every German state in addition to the federal agency, and critics have said that internal communication problems were a significant reason for the fact that the crime spree remained unsolved for so long. In addition to the details about weapons finds, the Interior Ministry report also indicated that, since , 13 right-wing groups had been investigated under German laws prohibiting the creation of a terrorist organization.
In addition to the three core members -- Uwe B? On Tuesday, officers arrested yet another man thought to be connected to the cell. Ralf Wohlleben, a former official with the far-right National Democratic Party of Germany NPD , is suspected of having provided a gun and ammunition to the trio. The PP and Amaiur celebrate the results of the Spanish general election. A political party has greater state funding, more members on committees, more chance to propose laws and amend them and more access to classified information if it can form a parliamentary group than if its members have to join the mixed group of small parties.
No one from the PP was immediately available for comment. The strict interpretation of the rules limiting parliamentary groups proposed by the PP would also prevent another minority party, the anti-regionalist UPyD, from forming a group, the right-leaning 'El Mundo' reported. Spain has 17 autonomous regions that have extensive control over their own finances. Some, including the Basque Country and Catalonia, have distinctive cultures and their own languages.

Four of the escapees are members of Los Zetas, in prison for murder. One of them is Jose Contreras, who is believed to be the head of the Zetas in Puebla and has escaped from three other prisons. Investigators have reportedly determined that prison officials aided the inmates in their escape.
Warden Jorge Daniel Martinez, deputy security chief Arturo Parra and six prison guards have all been detained pending an investigation. Without the participation and acts of corruption of the detained, the escape would have been impossible.? AG Borguet said the inmates paid the officials and guards who in turn, did not watch the cells at night,?
Keys were discovered in the locks of some of the cells, according to prosecutors. In September, Los Zetas engineered a coordinated breakout at three separate prisons in Veracruz resulting in the escape of 32 inmates. The Mexican Navy later captured 14 of them at a Zetas training camp. Ezequiel Cardenas Rivera was detained last Friday along with four associates while he attended a party at a house in Matamoros, a border city in the northeastern state of Tamaulipas, the secretariat said.
The arrest of Cardenas Rivera, known as "El Junior," was made possible by a tip and "naval intelligence work, " the secretariat said, without explaining why it waited four days to announce the capture. The suspects, who were armed, were detained as they started to drive away from the house "in a hurry," the Navy Secretariat said, adding that no shots were fired in the operation.
Jose de Jesus Garcia Hernandez, 32, suspected of being the Gulf cartel's boss in Matamoros, located across the border from Brownsville, Texas, and Rene Alberto Munguia Elizondo, 43, who worked as an accountant for the criminal organization, were arrested along with Cardenas Rivera. The other two suspects d etained in the operation were identified as Javier Enrique Farias Garcia, 49 , another Gulf cartel money man, and Erasmo Garcia Galvan, 37 , who specialized in smuggling drugs into the United States.
Marines seized three rifles, six ammunition clips, rounds of ammunition, five fragmentation grenades and three vehicles from the suspects. All of the suspects were flown to Mexico City and handed over to the Siedo organized crime unit of the Attorney General's Office last Saturday, the secretariat said. The Gulf cartel was founded by Juan Nepomuceno Guerra in the s and was later led by Juan Garcia Abrego, who was arrested in and extradited to the United States. Osiel Cardenas Guillen later became the Gulf cartel's undisputed boss.
Cardenas was arrested in , but he continued running the Gulf cartel, one of the most violent and powerful criminal organizations in Mexico, until his extradition to the United States four years later. Antonio Ezequiel Cardenas Guillen took over the Gulf cartel's leadership following his brother's extradition to the United States.
Sidney Brown Tactical Intern sidney. The man, identified as Mohammed al-'Abus, was arrested after clashed with the police in the Nahrwan district, west of Mosul, according to police Maj. Mahdi Sabih al-Gharawi. One policeman was killed during the fight. Nineveh Operations Command had listed 'Abus as a wanted criminal for his involvement in over 50 car bombs, thousands of IED attacks, and assassination of civilians and officials in Nineveh. Meanwhile, police arrested five other wanted in a truck in Yermuk district, west of Mosul.
The suspects carried eight Katyusha-style rockets. Mosul - km north of Baghdad? It is the site of daily bombings and killings. Mosul is the bloodiest of all Iraq? In recent months targeted attacks against government officials and military officers have been stepped up, often making use of silenced weapons and roadside bombs. The Iraqi government believes that al-Qaeda is operating in Mosul to finance insurgent operations in Afghanistan.
The Chancellery of National Reconciliation and the Iraqi government claimed to have information that indicate this connection. Deputy Interior Minister Ayden Khaled said at a press conference in Baghdad that the Interior Ministry received intelligence information, saying that terrorist groups have re-instated their activities.
He was confident that Iraqi forces have the capacity to chase these groups and end their insurgency. Iraq was hit hard by a series of insurgent attacks especially in Basra and Baghdad that left about 50 people dead. On Monday evening, insurgents even attacked the Council of Representatives. Ambassador James Jeffrey said Sunday that some of the bombings were possibly carried out by al-Qaeda. Ahmed Shehani, adviser in the Iraqi government, said that Malaysia demanded that Iraq has to sign a prisoners exchange agreement first.
Former member of parliament Daini was charged in with the masterminding of murders, kidnappings and bombings, including an attack on the Iraqi parliament in The only evidence against Daini seemed to be the confessions of two of his bodyguards. Daini was elected in and belonged to a group of Sunni politicians who constantly criticized the Shia government of Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki of sectarian actions and partnering with Iran.
He claimed that the charges against him were politically motivated He fled the country in , when the case against him was being assembled. On January 25, , the Central Court in Baghdad? The Merced County District Attorney? Later on Tuesday, Morse said that event had been postponed until probably next week. Morse said the meeting was postponed because his office is still in the midst of coordinating the press conference with partner agencies involved in the operation.
La Familia Michoacana has been linked to kidnappings and beheadings in Mexico. When asked to provide further details about the operation Tuesday, Morse declined. One of the so-called "trap" vehicles used to carry drugs and money and which features complex hidden compartments will be on display at the upcoming news conference, Morse said. It is "very important" to compare notes with China on traffic control, Attorney General Miguel Angel Mancera said in an interview with Xinhua. Cameras are taking pictures and detecting irregularities, and all these high technology systems are critical to a city where you want to have order," Mancera said.
The chief prosecutor said city officials are interested in exchanging views with China not only in traffic law enforcement, but also in other areas. This combination of law enforcement and the use of technology has been something we've been prioritizing," the attorney general said. On Mexico City's achievements in combating crime, he said the police have made "substantial improvements in dealing with car theft, kidnappings, as well as homicide cases.
With this, we don't only rely on police forces, but also on the machines and advanced technology," Mancera said. Six people, including a spiritual leader of the radical group created in the beginning of the year that Kariyev was part of, were apprehended in suspicion of organizing the criminal act. The group was planning to commit robberies and armed assaults on shops, banks and currency exchange offices.
Almost each member of the group has a criminal past and was involved in violent crimes. The investigators obtained proof of the murder they committed back in when they were robbing visitos of Zheke Batyr sanatorium at Borabai resort and later committed more robberies in Karatal town in The investigators also obatined information on the violent crimes committed by the group in Almaty and Atyrau.

State-run Anatolian news agency said a soldier and private security worker were wounded in the courtyard of the Topkapi Palace. An unidentified witness told a DHA television reporter he had seen the attacker and had helped to carry the wounded into ambulances.

German ambassador Ernst Reichel and his Austrian counterpart Johann Brieger "strongly condemned the violence used against soldiers of NATO-led KFOR and expressed their concern over its intensity," the embassies said in a joint press release. The German and Austrian diplomats "called upon the people in the north of Kosovo not to allow themselves to be used by the perpetrators of violence for their own goals and to respect the mandate of KFOR to secure the freedom of movement.
The clashes erupted after KFOR soldiers seized a Serb-set roadblock near Zupce in the north of Kosovo, where the vast majority of the population are Serbs who reject Kosovo's declaration of independence. Last week 21 KFOR soldiers were wounded in similar clashes with Kosovo Serbs when they tried to dismantle another roadblock close to one of two disputed border crossings.

Embassy hosted a press conference Tuesday to announce a major donation to an organization that works to end human trafficking. Courtesy of the U. Embassy To fight human trafficking, the U. The money will fund a two-year project. The project's primary objectives are to prevent human trafficking, protect victims and promote criminal proceedings against traffickers.
At a press conference Tuesday, Mariliana Morales, director of Fundaci? The project will focus on manning ports and borders since Costa Rica is a source, transit and destination country for human trafficking. In addition, a television advertising campaign will call attention to the problem. Another aim is to promote a new anti-trafficking law in the Costa Rica Legislative Assembly that imposes harsher penalties for trafficking crimes. The current law article of the Costa Rica penal code calls for prison terms between years for those involved in trafficking, depending on the severity of the crime.
But according to the U. State Department trafficking of persons report "the government's Costa Rica law enforcement efforts lagged with respect to holding trafficking offenders accountable for their crimes and in adequately addressing domestic cases of human trafficking. It will provide training and protection to 3, public and private employees in the country and strengthen efforts to combat trafficking. Empresarios ya se reunieron con?

The Red Cross has declined to comment on the identity of the kidnappers. Mp Hussein al-Miribi described the situation as "disappointing to the security forces". Fadhila Party Media Center said that "the parliamentarian security commission should recalculate the situation". An explosion took part in the parliament last Monday which led to the injury of a Kurdish Alliance MP, Muayad al-Tayib, and some killings. The nature of the explosion is not decided yet, where viewpoints differed between a bombed car or a mortar shelling.

The aim is to create a "level playing field for fair competition. Since the convention came into force, people and 91 companies have been sanctioned for foreign bribery offenses.

But the systems are mainly self regulatory and often inconsistent," it added. M: The militants, however, belong to armed organizations that have not carried out deadly attacks against civilians and Iraqi security forces. The Awakening Councils or Sons of Iraq were formerly Sunni tribal insurgents who turned against al-Qaeda militants in after they were organized by major sheikhs and chieftains into the Councils. They were later recruited in the Iraqi army and police.
The recruitment is still in progress. The slow process has raised fears that the unsatisfied Sahwa may return to al-Qaeda. Awakening Council militiamen are frequently targeted by al-Qaeda and other insurgent groups who see them as traitors. Earlier today, gunmen in the city of Kirkuk shot dead a high school student with machine guns while he was coming out of school.

However, the figure is still far lower than the amount of cocaine seized in , which the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime said was 65 tons.

According to the U. Department of State? The trend seems to be increasing, as both Colombian and Mexican drug trafficking organizations are thought to be deepening operations in the country. Indeed, the diversity of transnational criminal groups that are based in Ecuador caused one U. The conflict, which began in spring as a one-sided crackdown on peaceful anti-government protests, is now sliding toward civil war.
Soldiers are defecting with their weapons to take on Assad loyalist troops. Piling pressure on Assad, Syria's biggest trade partner Turkey suspended all financial credit dealings with Damascus and froze its assets, joining the Arab League in isolating Assad over the military crackdown.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said clashes erupted in the southern town of Dael when security forces moved in during the early morning, and continued well into afternoon. Seven troops were killed," said Rami Abdel Rahman, head of the observatory, adding that 19 people were wounded, four critically. An activist from the town, in the province of Deraa, said some 30 busloads of security men had stormed into Dael but two of the buses were blown up in fighting between security forces and defectors, the Observatory said. One bus had been empty. In the north of Syria, at least six civilians were shot dead Wednesday when security forces broke up an anti-government demonstration in the city of Idlib, the Observatory said.
Today they fired at a crowd thousands who were marching from a roundabout to the main Mohafaza Square," said Fares, an activist who helped transport three of the injured to Turkey. The European Union weighed in one day later. Turkey, a NATO member with a km long border with Syria, says it does not want military intervention in Syria but was ready for any scenario. Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said Turkey would block delivery of all weapons and military supplies to Syria. Relations with Syria's central bank were suspended and a cooperation agreement was halted until there was a new government in place.
Assad's rule had reached "the end of the road," he said. Turkey now hosts Syrian army defectors and opposition group. Syria does not admit most foreign journalists. It says it is fighting an insurgency by armed groups supported from abroad, who have attacked its troops trying to defend the peace.
Military funerals were held for 14 members of the army and security forces Tuesday, evidence of the rising cost of its battle to smother the revolt inspired by Arab uprisings that toppled the leaders of Tunisia, Egypt and Libya this year. Rebels Tuesday ambushed an army vehicle in the north killing three soldiers, the Human Rights Observatory said. Those liberated did "not have Syrian blood on their hands. Some prisoners were released earlier this month, SANA said. European and Arab diplomats say the top United Nations human rights forum will paint a grim picture of events in Syria at a special session Friday which is likely to condemn the Syrian government for crimes against humanity.
The U. Friday's session is partly designed to put pressure on China and Russia, which have blocked measures by the Security Council to condemn Syria, to take a stronger stand, say diplomats. A heavily armed man opened fire at one of Istanbul? The motive for the assault at Topkapi Palace was not immediately known. But police said the man, a Libyan with Syrian citizenship, had entered Turkey only three days ago.
A heavily armed gunman wounded a soldier and a security guard at the entrance of Istanbul? Police said the attacker arrived at the palace in a car with Syrian license plates. Minutes before the attack, Turkey? Multiple gun shots were heard from behind the high walls of the Topkapi Palace before the attacker was killed, and some tourists threw themselves on the ground to avoid the violence , officials and witnesses said.

Hay que tener en cuenta otras consideraciones. En primer lugar, no todas las dimen- siones tienen el mismo peso. Barber Lipset , ; cf.

Si este Sostenes, coautor de 1 Cor, fuese el arjisynagogos de Corinto Hech 18, 17, sucesor, al parecer, de Crispo, v. Restan treinta personas de cuyo status social conocemos poco. No hay razones convincentes para identificar- lo con Lucio de Cirene Hech 13, 1 o con la persona conocida por la forma abre- viada del mismo nombre, Lucas Flm 24; Col 4, 14; 2 Tim 4, Sil- Lietzmann , s.

Se trata, evidentemente, de un hombre bas- tante acaudalado Por eso es correcto, seguramente, colocar a Esteban en una escala de riqueza muy elevada, aunque probablemente no a la altura de Gayo y Crispo.

Pese a la existencia de una cierta rivali- dad entre los partidarios de uno y de otro en Corinto 1 Cor 1, 12; 3, , 6 , parece que las relaciones entre Pablo y Apolo fue- ron buenas 16, Hock Taylor ; Magie , 1, s; 2, , ; Gealy Ap, 7. Judge y Thomas, en cambio, lo toman en serio , De las tres personas restantes nombradas en los Hechos se dice que acogieron y protegieron a Pablo y sus socios. Disponemos de algunos indica- dores sobre su status.
En tercer lugar, ella era una pagana adhe- Haenchen , , n. El primer converso de Acaya no fue una familia ateniense, sino la familia de Esteban en Corinto. Lake y Cad- bury , 4, , estiman que el adjetivo Derbaios iba en el original con el nom- bre siguiente, Timoteo, y esto les permite identificar a este Gayo con el macedo- nio mencionado junto con Aristarco en 19, Haenchen ad loe.
Era, en fin, cabeza femenina de familia. Es evidentemente un pagano que lleva nombre griego. Posee una casa y alguna fortuna. Su nombre indica que puede ser ciudadano romano 75 : pertenece al grupo latino dominante de la colonia. Nuestro repaso de los nombres mencionados en las cartas pau- linas ha aportado pocos datos sobre el nivel social de los cristia- nos paulinos. Sin embargo, han aparecido algunos modelos que tienen su im- portancia. Antes de resumir estos resultados, sin embargo, conviene examinar otros testimonios, menos directos, que pueden recoger- se en las cartas.

La sociedad estaba es- tructurada en collegia, donde se asignaba a veces a los funciona- rios mayor cantidad de alimentos que a los miembros ordinarios. Pablo se refiere a ellos en su respues- ta a la consulta que le hicieron los corintios, y en parte se identi- fica con su punto de vista Theissen cita de Marcial 3. Theissen c. Rom 15, 1, donde Pablo infiere una norma general de la experiencia corintia. Por fortuna, nosotros no ne- cesitamos resolver todos estos problemas para hacer las pocas ob- servaciones que son pertinentes para nuestro tema.
Algunos manuscritos traen los v. Los documentos de este siglo II no ofrecen testimonios directos que puedan ayudar a describir la estructura social del cristianismo paulino tal como lo he definido antes, pero muestran hasta cierto punto la variedad y el rigor de las reacciones a la inconsistencia de status y al que- branto de las convenciones. Sobre estas Haustafeln, cf.
MacDonald sostuvo ingeniosamente que las cartas pastorales fueron una respuesta directa a los Hechos de Pablo y Tecla y al amplio movimiento de Asia Menor que ese documento representaba.
Judge Yo no los encuentro convincentes en absoluto. Estratos mixtos, status ambiguo Los testimonios que hemos considerado son fragmentarios, aleatorios y a menudo oscuros. Sin em- bargo, hemos encontrado algunas indicaciones convergentes que permiten establecer un cuadro impresionista de estos grupos. Es un cuadro donde aparecen juntos individuos de diverso nivel so- cial.
El extremo superior e inferior de la escala social grecolatina no aparecen en el cuadro. Pudo haber miembros de las comunidades paulinas que vi- vieran a un nivel de subsistencia, pero nada sabemos de ellos. Incluso algunos de ellos poseen casas y esclavos, tie- nen posibilidades para viajar y muestran otros signos de riqueza. Ejercieron, de hecho, el papel de protectores. Lee , Encontramos arte- sanos y comerciantes ricos: de ingresos elevados, aunque inferio- res en prestigio profesional.
Encontramos mujeres ricas e indepen- dientes. Son personas en movilidad ascendente; su status adquirido es su- perior a su status atribuido. Estas preguntas hacen referencia a sentimientos y actitudes, a 1. Homans , ; cf. Homans , 4 y passim.

Hech 16, 15 Lidia ; 16, carcelero de Filipos ; 18, 8 Crispo, el ar- jisynagogos de Corinto. En Co- rinto, por ejemplo, Pablo otorga una prioridad especial a la familia de Esteban, como hemos visto 1 Cor 1, 16; 16, 15s. A pesar de su importancia para el cristianismo paulino, la fa- milia no basta para explicar otros aspectos de la vida de grupo.
