Trump sacks defiant attorney general

Donald Trump has fired the acting US attorney
general, after she questioned the legality of his
immigration ban.
Sally Yates, who had been appointed under Barack
Obama, earlier ordered justice department lawyers
not to enforce the president's executive order.
Dana Boente, US attorney for the Eastern District of
Virginia, replaced her as acting attorney general.

He has directed the department to enforce Mr
Trump's order.
In a statement, the White House said Ms Yates had
"betrayed" the department.
Mr Trump's order temporarily banned nationals
from seven Muslim-majority countries from
entering the US, and sparked street protests in the
US and abroad.

Quebec mosque attack: Student Alexandre Bissonnette charged

Canadian police have charged a French-Canadian student over the fatal shooting of
six Muslim worshippers at a mosque in Quebec.
Alexandre Bissonnette was charged with six counts of first-degree murder and five of
attempted murder.
The 27-year-old is due to appear in a Quebec City court over Sunday evening's
attack, during evening prayers at the Quebec Islamic Cultural Centre.
Vigils are being held across Canada to commemorate those killed and injured.
More than 50 people were at the mosque when the shooting erupted just before
20:00 on Sunday.
Five people are still in hospital with injuries and another 12 people with minor
injuries were treated and released, said hospital officials.
A man of Moroccan heritage who was also arrested after the attack, Mohamed Khadir,
is now being treated as a witness.
Quebec provincial police have released the names of all six victims who were killed:
Father-of-three Azzeddine Soufiane, 57, a grocer and butcher
Khaled Belkacemi, 60, a professor in the food science department at Laval
Father-of-three, Abdelkrim Hassen, 41, an IT worker for the government
Aboubaker Thabti, 44, and two Guinean nationals, Mamadou Tanou Barry, 42, and
Ibrahima Barry, 39
The suspect was arrested in his car on a bridge leading from Quebec City to Ile
d'Orleans, where he called police to say he wanted to cooperate with the authorities.
According to CBC News, Mr Bissonnette studied political science and anthropology at
Laval University, whose campus is about 3km (two miles) away from the mosque.
The Montreal Gazette reports that the suspect dressed up as the Grim Reaper for
Halloween, according to his Facebook page, which has now been taken offline.
On the social network, he also reportedly "liked" US President Donald Trump and
French National Front leader Marine Le Pen.
Francois Deschamps, an official with an advocacy group, Welcome to Refugees, said
the suspect was known for his far-right views.
"It's with pain and anger that we learn the identity of terrorist Alexandre Bissonnette,
unfortunately known to many activists in Quebec for taking nationalist, pro-Le Pen
and anti-feminist positions at Laval University and on social media," Mr Deschamps
wrote on organisation's Facebook page.

Trump executive order: White House stands firm over travel ban

US President Donald Trump's decision to halt all refugee admissions and temporarily bar people from seven Muslim-majority countries has sparked protests across the country, and drawn condemnation from the wider world. Others see the executive order as Mr Trump making good on election promises to "make America great again". But what is the order, dubbed the "Muslim ban" by those rallying against it, and who exactly does it affect? Here are some key points from the full text explained. What is happening? The order brings in a suspension of the US Refugee Admissions Programme for 120 days There is also an indefinite ban on Syrian refugees And anyone arriving from seven Muslim-majority countries - Iraq, Syria, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, and Yemen - faces a 90-day visa suspension.
Some visa categories, such as diplomats and the UN, are not included in the suspension The order also introduces a cap of 50,000 refugees to be accepted in 2017, against a limit of 110,000 set by former President Barack Obama Priority will be given to religious minorities facing persecution in their countries. In an interview, Mr Trump singled out Christians in Syria A suspension of the Visa Interview Waiver Program, which allows consular officers to exempt some applicants from face-to-face interviews if they are seeking to renew their temporary visas within a year of expiry Exceptions could be made on a case-by-case basis Victims vent fury World reaction Order sows seeds of panic Who is affected by the ban? All travellers who have nationality or dual nationality of Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen are not permitted to enter the US for 90 days, or be issued an immigrant or non-immigrant visa. This includes those who share dual nationality with allied countries, including the UK, although Canada has been told its dual nationals are not affected. However, the UK foreign office put out a statement saying only those dual nationals travelling from one of the blacklisted seven countries might be subject to extra checks. It said those travelling from any other country to the US would not be affected and should not be subjected to any extra vetting, "regardless of your nationality or your place of birth". However, one Scottish veterinary student - who travels on an Iranian passport - was unable to fly home from her holiday in Costa Rica because she was told her transit visa for the US was no longer valid. White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus said US green-card holders - legal residents - would not be affected, although he admitted to NBC's Meet the Press programme that they could be subject to greater questioning at airports. How is it being implemented? There has been a lot of confusion and uncertainty. A federal judge issued a temporary halt to the deportation of visa holders or refugees stranded at US airports, after the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) filed a case in response to Mr Trump's executive order.
The group estimated that between 100 and 200 people were being detained at airports or in transit. The administration put the figure at 109 people Air passengers have been prevented from boarding US-bound flights. There were also reports of cabin crew who were barred from entering the country, but no figures were given Despite claims that green card holders (US permanent residents) from the seven countries will not be affected, officials have indicated that those overseas at the time of the order will have to be assessed on a case-by-case basis before being allowed back into the US, and extra screening might be required. Lawyers and advocacy groups have been advising green card holders in the US to postpone plans to travel abroad Image copyright Reuters Image caption Demonstrations against the order were held in Dallas and other US airports It is also not clear the impact the suspension of the Visa Interview Waiver Program would have on visa requests and consular services around the world. Experts said travellers might expect longer waiting times American citizens travelling to the seven countries could be detained for questioning as well in the future, Mr Trump's chief of staff, Reince Priebus, said. They are not included in the order, either. Is it legal? It appears not to be on the face of it. And the courts will certainly have to weigh some of the arguments of the parties. The US used to ban entrants from specific countries and entire regions. But in 1965, the US Congress passed the Immigration and Nationality Act which said that no person could be "discriminated against in the issuance of an immigrant visa because of the person's race, sex, nationality, place of birth or place of residence". So, the exclusion of all Syrians would be enough to challenge Mr Trump in court. The fact that they are all Muslim countries lends weight to the argument that the order is "anti-Muslim" - which Trump aides have been keen to dismiss. Supporters of Mr Trump's order mention the post-9/11 attacks and the ability of the administration to take measures to protect national security. And they cite the president's powers stemming from a 1952 law on "Inadmissible Aliens" to "suspend the entry" of "any class of aliens" that he finds are detrimental to the interest of the United States. They also suggest that US presidents can set aside the 1965 law. The most cited example is that of President Jimmy Carter who barred some Iranians during the 1980 crisis over 52 Americans being held hostage in Tehran. What did Trump say? Mr Trump said the halt on the refugee programme was needed to give government agencies time to develop a stricter vetting system and ensure that visas were not issued to individuals posing a national security threat.
"To be clear, this is not a Muslim ban, as the media is falsely reporting," the President said in a statement released on Facebook. "This is not about religion - this is about terror and keeping our country safe. There are over 40 different countries worldwide that are majority Muslim that are not affected by this order. "We will again be issuing visas to all countries once we are sure we have reviewed and implemented the most secure policies over the next 90 days." Image copyright Getty Images Image caption Mr Trump's order has been strongly criticised by rights groups Syrians applying for resettlement in the US were already subject to a complex process of background investigation and security screenings, in a process that could take between 18 to 24 months. Mr Priebus said the seven countries had been included because Congress and the Obama administration had identified them as "the most watched countries harbouring terrorists". Others could be added later, he said. What do critics say? Rights groups say Mr Trump's order targets Muslims because of their faith and that they will legally challenge his move. They also say no refugees have been convicted of terrorism-related crimes. They also say that the most recent attacks in the US were carried out by US nationals or citizens from the countries not included in the travel ban:

prisoners are more beautiful than the queens.
The photo shows the late Miss World Kenya-Nyamira County (second from left) and

Wanjiku Kamende, who stabbed her boyfriend 22 times, during a visit on International
Women's Day.

Hospital, where she had been hospitalised since mid January 2017.
Mercy Mokeira had fallen ill last year December and was admitted to a hospital in

thyroid disease. She got well and was later discharged.
However, mid January 2017, she fell ill again and was taken to North Kinangop
Hospital. On the second admission, she was frail and couldn’t talk or do things by
Her blood samples were taken to Nairobi for testing on Tuesday, but before a report
could be presented to North Kinangop Hospital, she died.
“My first born child, Mercy Mokeira, died today (Saturday, January 28) – and my
family is headed to North Kinangop Hospital to transfer her body to a morgue in
Gilgil. It is such a sad day for me,” her father, Josephat Momanyi told EDAILY on
phone at 8:50pm Saturday.
Miss World Kenya franchise holder Terry Mungai has eulogized Mercy Mokeira as a
lively and hard-working lady.
"I am saddened by the death of Mercy Mokeira. I pass my condolences to her family
and the entire Nyamira County. Mokeira was a very cheerful lady, and she did a good
job in the fight against jigger infestation in different parts of the country."

"You are self-centered and stingy" - Dj Real calls out Small Doctor

Read his open letter

I'm writing this Open Letter to all street
DJs and my fans to learn from my
mistake. Been keeping silence for the past
few months now based on what happened
between me and Small Doctor who thinks
he's bigger than the person who stoodby
him, believed In his talent and did all his
possible best to help him get to where he
Is today with GOD's blessing.
1. I Got to know him through a friend and
artist called O'black some years back as
his bike boy who drops him off at shows.
O'black Introduced him to me. That he
can be of help to me anytime I want to
visit Alaba Market to drop jobs done for
the marketers.. That's how he became my
personal Bike Boy which I do pay him. Not
until a day one of his Agege brother called
"Mayor" brought him to me that he want
me to help his career and I told Mayor
that Small Doctor never told me that he
sings but with love I accepted him as a
brother without collecting a dime or ask
him to sign any agreement with my outfit
Why I took over his job personally with
love was when I heard that one of his
written #Gbagaun was stolen by O'black
and featured Konga. That was when I
personally took him to Dresan to Rrecord
the song which Is his very first single and
I gave him massive promotion. I also
remembered vividly that I took him to
some street Djs back then but they all
turned him down that they can't promote
a tout song and I shouldered all his
promotion and responsibilities.
2. The purpose for this letter Is because I
get different calls and false accusation by
some DJs which he now see as saviours
ever since I dropped him off my Label.
That I was the one blocking their way from
Small Doctor for not giving them money
for promotion they are doing for him.
They never knew what I was going
through within myself, because the so
called artist Is a self-centered and stingy
that he finds It hard to settle me on any
show he gets which I never ask him again
after series of meetings and no result.
3. When I released the Best Of Small
Doctor which took over everywhere, I was
first challenged and sanctioned at Alaba
Market by the marketers, so I had to
pressurize him before he dropped 30k to
settle all marketers but I rather took him
down to alaba market to host all the
marketers because the money he dropped
can't sort anything than to just buy drinks
for the marketers and they all accepted
him as their son because they know I
never for once been bad to them.
My witnesses at Alaba Market that very
day are #PersonEntertainment
#UnclePromise #RudeBoyEntertainment
#V12Graphics #UprightEntertainment
#ObikwuEntertainment. I was also
challenge In the year 2015 At D'tunes
house when we were hosted by Dtunes
base on his new artists signed then.
On our way out all the street Djs hosted
that day were accusing me of not giving
them money Small Doctor gave me to sort
them and I replied them that If he gave me
any money to sort them that I shouldn't
see the end of 2015.
But all thanks to almighty Allah I'm alive
today. The likes of Dj Mellowshe, Dj
Money, Dj Murbeat, Dj Samba, Dj B5 And
Churchill And Stud were also my witness.
Now that he sees none of his song on my
Track List anymore, he now finds his way
to go spend lot of money to persuade
those Djs he never for once had respect
for which I was doing for him free of
charge before.
Lesson learnt. My advice to all street Djs
Is don't help any artiste all In the name of
pity or he has talent, without signing a
deal or contract. Learn from my mistake.
And for Small Doctor please kindly remove
my label name from your social media
handle. Am not GOD who blessed you and
I will never pray for your career to end
soon, but your pride and ego I pray It
won't ruin you.
God Bless You All Thanks ( Dj Real)"

Luis Suarez rescued a late draw for Barcelona at Real Betis, with the champions not being allowed a goal which crossed the line.

La Liga is the only one of Europe's top five leagues
not to have goalline technology - with the Premier
League, Bundesliga, Serie A and Ligue 1 all
bringing it in in the past few years.
The Spanish league has continually said it will not
bring in the system because it is too expensive.
But the calls for it will increase after Barcelona
were denied a legitimate goal that could have a
big impact in the title race.
Soon after Real Betis took the lead, Aleix Vidal's
cross was sent towards goal by a Betis defender
and Mandi slid the ball off the crossbar and away -
but replays clearly showed it was well over the
Barca boss Luis Enrique was diplomatic when
asked about the incident after the game. "Referees
need help, be it cameras or whatever, for
decisions which favours us or not," he said.

Betis give Barca a scare

Despite the fact Barcelona had a legitimate goal
ruled out, the champions were fortunate - on the
balance of play - to have even drawn.

Betis, who rise one place to 13th, had 17 shots to
Barcelona's 10 and Ceballos hit the crossbar from
outside the box before Castro smashed the post
from close range - both at 0-0.

They had a glorious chance to seal the game at
1-0 when top scorer Castro was played in one-on-
one as Barca took risks, but fired the ball straight
at keeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen.

US judge suspends president Trump deportations

A US judge has issued a temporary halt to the
deportation of visa holders or refugees stranded
at airports after President Donald Trump issued an
order barring entry to them for 90 days.
The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) filed a
case in response to the order issued on Friday.
It estimates that 100-200 people are being held at
airports or in transit.
Thousands of people have been protesting at US
airports over Mr Trump's clampdown on
His executive order halted the entire US refugee
programme and also instituted a 90-day travel ban
for nationals from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan,
Syria and Yemen.

Those who were already mid-flight were detained
on arrival - even if they held valid US visas or
other immigration permits.
Defending his move, Mr Trump early on Sunday
tweeted : "Our country needs strong borders and
extreme vetting, NOW."
On Saturday, amid protests and court challenges,
he told reporters the order was "working out very
nicely. You see it at the airports, you see it all
Other executive orders issued by Mr Trump on
Saturday were:

A ban on administration officials ever lobbying
on behalf of a foreign government
An order to Defence Secretary Jim Mattis to
come up with a plan within 30 days to defeat
so-called Islamic State
Restructuring the National Security Council
with a key role for Steve Bannon , the former
populist right-wing media executive who is
now Mr Trump's top strategist
'Irreparable injury'
The ruling from federal Judge Ann Donnelly, in
New York, prevented the removal from the US of
people with approved refugee applications, valid
visas, and "other individuals... legally authorised
to enter the United States".

The emergency ruling also said there was a risk of
"substantial and irreparable injury" to those
Her ruling is not on the constitutionality of Mr
Trump's executive order. What will happen to
those still held at airports remains unclear.
In its response, the Department of Homeland
Security said it would continue to enforce the
measures that on Saturday had affected "less than
1% of the more than 325,000 international air
travellers who arrive every day".
It added that the US government "retains its right
to revoke visas at any time if required for national
security or public safety".

'Dreams shattered' - those affected
"The feeling of injustice is so big, and this ban is
so demeaning! Shame!" - Syrian scientist working
on skin cancer research and living in Germany
who now finds she cannot travel to Philadelphia in
February to visit colleagues.
"Dreams shattered" - cardiology fellow from
Jordan whose Syrian wife's family cannot come to
visit in the US.
"We may try our chances with other countries" -
Iranian professional in Washington DC, whose wife
is now stuck overseas.

The case was brought early on Saturday on behalf
of two Iraqi men detained at JFK Airport in New

Both have now been released. Another court
hearing is set for February.
Lee Gelernt, deputy legal director of the Immigrants
Rights Project, who argued the case in court said
that some people had been threatened with being

Mr Gelernt also said the judge had ordered the
government to provide a list of names of those
detained under the order.

France has banned free soft drink refills over obesity and diabetes

France has banned restaurants from offering free
soft drink refills over the risk of obesity and
diabetes. The ban which was first passed in April
2015, took effect on Friday, January 27, 2017
after the government said no restaurants should
offer unlimited refill of soda and other sugary
drinks for free.
According to NY Times, the move by France is in
line with WHO recommendations, which has
urged countries to impose a tax on sugary drinks
to battle the increase of obesity in the World.
However, a recent Eurostat survey of adult obesity
put the French at 15.3%, which is just below the
EU average of 15.9%.
