They shouted for their son to get out of the water, grabbed their bag and ran for the hotel. Their son told them he saw someone shot on the beach.There was “sheer panic” at the hotel, Pine said. “There were a lot of concerned people, a few people in tears with panic and a few people — older guests — they’d turned their ankles or there was a few little minor injuries and nicks and scrapes.”Elizabeth O’Brien, an Irish tourist who was with her two sons, told Irish Radio she was on the beach when the shooting began.

Mesa family survives lightning strike to home Here’s how to repair and patch damaged drywall Comments   Share   In southeastern France, a man with ties to Islamic radicals rammed a car into a gas factory, touching off an explosion that injured two people. Authorities arriving at the site made a grisly discovery: the severed head of the driver’s employer was found hanging at the plant entrance.The suspect, Yassine Salhi, was seized by an alert firefighter, authorities said, and French President Francois Hollande said the attacker’s intention had been to cause an explosion. A security alert for the southeast region was raised to its highest level for the next three days, and the U.S. Embassy in Paris warned American citizens to be vigilant.In an audio recording released Tuesday, the Islamic State called on its supporters to increase attacks during Ramadan and “be keen on waging invasion in this eminent month and commit martyrdom.”In Britain, police said they were tightening security at major events after the attacks in France, Kuwait and Tunisia, including for the weekend events of Armed Forces Day and the Pride London gay and lesbian festival.The attacks were condemned by the United Nations, the U.S., Israel and others.“We stand with these nations as they respond to attacks on their soil today,” the White House said. Pentagon spokesman Col. Steve Warren added it was “too soon to tell whether or not these various and far-flung attacks were coordinated centrally or whether they were coincidental.” SOUSSE, Tunisia (AP) — A young man pulled a Kalashnikov from a beach umbrella and sprayed gunfire at European sunbathers at a Tunisian resort, killing at least 39 people — one of three deadly attacks Friday from Europe to North Africa to the Middle East that followed a call to violence by Islamic State extremists.The shootings in the Tunisian resort of Sousse happened at about the same time as a bombing at a Shiite mosque in Kuwait and an attack on a U.S.-owned factory in France that included a beheading. It was unclear if the violence was linked but it came days after the IS militants urged their followers “to make Ramadan a month of calamities for the nonbelievers.” In all, the assailants killed at least 65 people. “No mosque that does not confirm to the law will be tolerated,” he said, referring to those that incite to terrorism.The attacks are also a blow to Tunisia’s image as a stable, democratic nation emerging from its revolution in 2011, said Jonathan Hill, a professor of Defense Studies at King’s College in London.“The terrorists are attacking Tunisia’s reputation,” he said. “Not just as a safe and welcoming destination for Western holidaymakers, but as the one real success story to emerge out of the Arab Spring.”International police agency Interpol offered investigative help in the wake of Friday’s violence. Interpol Secretary-General Juergen Stock said the attacks “show the truly global dimension to current terrorist threats.”___Schemm reported from Rabat, Morocco. Associated Press Writers Bouazza Ben Bouazza in Tunis, Jill Lawless and Greg Katz in London, Shawn Pogatchnik in Dublin and Angela Charlton in Paris contributed to this report.___This story has been corrected to reflect that authorities now say there was only one gunman, not two, and that the message from the Islamic State was an audio recording, not a video. The SITE Intelligence Group reported later that the IS claimed credit for the Tunisia attack on its Twitter account and identified the gunman as Abu Yahya al-Qayrawani.The attack in Tunisia, the country’s worst ever, comes just months after the March 18 massacre at the national Bardo museum in Tunis that killed 22 people, again mostly tourists, and has called into question the newly elected government’s ability to protect the country.“Once again, cowardly and traitorous hands have struck Tunisia, targeting its security and that of its children and visitors,” President Beji Caid Essebsi told reporters at the RIU Imperial Marhaba hotel, near the beach rampage site.Essebsi promised “painful but necessary” measures, adding: “No country is safe from terrorism, and we need a global strategy of all democratic countries.”Rafik Chelli, the secretary of state of the Interior Ministry, told The Associated Press that the attack was carried out by a young student not previously known to authorities. At least 36 people were reported wounded in the shooting spree, which ended when the gunman was shot to death by police.The Islamic State group claimed responsibility for the suicide bombing at the Shiite mosque in Kuwait City that killed at least 27 people and wounded scores of other worshippers at midday prayers — the first such attack in the mostly quiet and relatively secure Gulf Arab nation in more than two decades.

first_imgBy Elias HazouTHE Natural Gas Public Company (DEFA) has wrapped up talks with Russia’s Itera on the potential interim supply to Cyprus of natural gas, and is now set to deliver a report to the government.DEFA’s board of directors yesterday heard from its negotiating team but, due to an apparent lack of consensus, decided to schedule a further meeting.“The Board examined and decided the procedures to be followed. The next Board of Directors meeting will be scheduled depending on developments,” DEFA said in a brief statement.Once DEFA has made up its mind, it will present its report to the energy minister, who will make a recommendation to the Cabinet.Cyprus is looking to secure intermediate supplies of natural gas until it can bring ashore its own gas from the offshore prospects.The talks with preferred bidder Itera are bound by a confidentiality agreement. DEFA has said only that under the terms of the tender it is not obligated to pick a supplier, and that the key criterion for any decision is a substantial reduction in the cost of electricity production from natural gas compared to current costs using heavy fuel oil.But press reports suggest DEFA and Itera have been edging closer to an agreement, after the Russian company quoted an even lower price.Phileleftheros reports that Itera’s latest offer was for just under €12 per million BTU (mmBtu) for natural gas. That’s a significant drop from their earlier proposal for €15.6 per mmBtu.The trade-off for the lower price is extending the supply period. The tender provided for supplies from September 2015 to September 2018, with an option to renew the contract to late 2020.Late 2020 or early 2021 is as of now the approximate timeline for the operation of a Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) plant which will generate electricity from natural gas extracted from offshore hydrocarbon reserves.EAC’s current cost of electricity stands (on average) at 16 cents per kilowatt-hour (kWh). According to its latest report, the electricity utility spends some €550m a year on the expensive heavy fuel oil that fires its power plants. The utility has meantime invested hundreds of millions in acquiring turbines that can burn natural gas.A rough calculation indicates that the €12 per mmBTu offered by Itera is considerably lower than the current cost of electricity production. Since one mmBTu corresponds to 293 kWh, the EAC’s current cost of production per mmBtu works out to 293 kWh times 16 cents, which comes to around €47.Itera’s offer – €12 per mmBtU – is approximately four times cheaper than the EAC’s present electricity cost. Alternatively, under Itera’s offer the cost of electricity would be a little over 4 cents per kilowatt-hour.But this is an indicative figure; the end-price charged to consumers would be higher, since the EAC includes a host of other fees on its electric bills on top of the core cost of electricity production.Itera’s proposal envisages the deployment of floating storage and regasification units (FSRUs), which will cost the company some €150m. To sweeten the deal, it’s understood that the Russians have offered to allow Cyprus use of the FSRUs once the contract expires.In addition, Itera is reportedly offering to build a natural gas pipeline running from Vassilikos to the Dhekelia power plant.You May LikeLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoGundry MD PrebioThrive Probiotic SupplementCardiologist: This Is What Happens When You Eat GlutenGundry MD PrebioThrive Probiotic SupplementUndo Pensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoCruise passenger airlifted to Paphos hospitalUndoRemand for pair in alleged property fraud (Updated)Undoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img
