Right-wing demonstrations and counterprotests follow stabbing in Chemnitz, GermanyEighteen people were injured in rival demonstrations capping off a week marked by xenophobic protests in the eastern city of Chemnitz, prompting Germany’s foreign minister to urge Germans to “get off our sofas” and speak up against racism. Chemnitz has been in the spotlight after violent far-right protests erupted over the fatal stabbing of a 35-year-old man, allegedly by a Syrian and an Iraqi last Sunday. On Saturday, 8,000 people answered a joint call by far-right party AfD and Islamophobic PEGIDA street movement to descend once again on the streets of the former communist city which was in the erstwhile East Germany.

Osama bin Laden's brother warns his vengeful son Hamza not to follow in his footsteps

Osama bin Laden's brother warns his vengeful son Hamza not to follow in his footstepsOsama Bin Laden's brother has urged the former Al-Qaeda leader's son Hamza not to follow in his infamous father's foot steps.  Hamza, 29, is widely seen as a possible successor to Ayman al-Zawahiri, the Egyptian ideologue who took over Al-Qaeda after US special forces killed Osama Bin Laden in a 2011 raid in Pakistan. After vowing to avenge his father, he has been put in charge of a highly trained group of the terrorist organisation's fighters in Afghanistan, Western officials told the The Telegraph. In a letter to his mother leaked in the media, Hamza said his 12-year-old son died a "martyr," suggesting he was killed in an airstrike or in fighting.  "We thought everyone was over this," said Hamza's uncle Hassan Bin Laden in an interview with the Guardian, referring to Osama bin Laden. "Then the next thing I knew, Hamza was saying 'I'm going to avenge my father'… If Hamza was in front of me now I would tell him 'God guide you. Think twice about what you are doing. Don't retake the steps of your father. You are entering horrible parts of your soul." Osama bin Laden's mother, Alia Ghanem, insisted that the Saudi-born terrorist behind the 2001 World Trade Centre and Pentagon attacks had been a good man until he was "brainwashed" in university by ideologues.  "He was a very good child until he met some people who pretty much brainwashed him in his early 20s. You can call it a cult," she said. Al-Qaeda had never completely recovered from the death of Osama Bin Laden. His successor, Zawahiri, was seen as less charismatic, and over the past few years many jihadists abandoned the group to join Isil.  With Isil suffering heavy losses in Syria and Iraq, Al-Qaeda now hopes to woo jihadists back to its fold, and Hamza is seen as key to that effort.  He has released several audio speeches, including one in 2016 in which he vowed to avenge his father's death. He has also called for attacks on Jews and Westerners, in an attempt to keep his organisation relevant to jihadists attracted to Isil. Isil had split from Al-Qaeda and declared its leader Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi "caliph" of the territories it seized across Syria and Iraq in 2014, attracting thousands of jihadists to its ranks. It also fought Al-Qaeda's affiliate in Syria and Yemen.  It has since lost most of its territory in Iraq and Syria, and many of its members have been killed or captured.

Capri could follow example of Venice as lagoon city installs barriers to manage mass tourism

Capri could follow example of Venice as lagoon city installs barriers to manage mass tourismThe island of Capri wants to bring in crowd control measures to manage stifling mass tourism, as Venice installed checkpoints capable of blocking off the most congested parts of the World Heritage city. The limestone outcrop in the Bay of Naples is inundated with two million tourists a year, with the mayor telling The Telegraph that the island could “explode” from a social point of view under the sheer weight of visitors. Venice introduced radical new measures for the bank holiday long weekend, installing metal barriers that can divert tourists down less frequented alleyways so that locals and workers can go about their business without constantly dodging tour groups and visitors trundling wheeled suitcases. The barriers edged Venice closer to the long-debated, highly controversial idea of limiting the number of tourists allowed to enter the lagoon city, as it buckles under the strain of around 25 million visitors a year. Tourists were confronted with the unprecedented sight of the waist-high black checkpoints across lanes leading from Venice railway station towards the Rialto Bridge, St Mark’s Square and other popular sights. They remained open but if tourist numbers become overwhelming on Tuesday, the May Day bank holiday, they will be manned by police and closed to visitors. Protesters tried to dismantle one of the newly-installed barriers Credit: Simone Padovani/Getty Only Venetians would be permitted to pass through. An average of 60,000 tourists a day descend on Venice – more than its population – but the authorities fear the number could rise to 120,000 on Tuesday. There were scuffles on Sunday when a few dozen activists tried to dismantle one of the barriers. They carried a banner with the words “Venice is not a nature reserve, we’re not in danger of extinction.” The police intervened and the barrier was quickly reinstalled. The mayor of Venice said the measures were an “experiment”, suggesting that if successful they could be employed again in future. “The barriers will only be closed if there are large crowds. The aim of them is to break up and divert the flow of tourists,” Luigi Brugnaro told Corriere della Sera newspaper. “We’ll be able to close one part of the city and open up another, controlling the degree of crowding. Venetians have the right to a city that is safe and liveable.” Capri is watching with interest and may introduce similar moves to deal with the daily assault of day-trippers that threaten to choke the life out of a place once feted by the literati, from DH Lawrence to Graham Greene. Capri is visited by around two million tourists a year Credit: Cornelia Doerr “We’re going to try out an experiment similar to the one in Venice,” said Gianni De Martino, the mayor. “I well understand the difficulties faced by my Venetian counterpart. We can’t stop tourists disembarking but we can do something (to improve the situation).” The vast majority of tourists on Capri arrive on large boats and then create a logjam in Marina Grande, the island’s small port, by waiting for a funicular railway to take them to Capri village, a once-picturesque settlement that is now crammed with designer shops and gelaterias. Capri could adopt similar measures to Venice to manage the impact of mass tourism Credit: RooM RF “There’s the risk that Capri could explode – you can’t fit a litre and a half of water into a one litre bottle,” the mayor, a civil engineer by profession, told The Telegraph last July. “We welcome tourists but two million a year is bit too much.” The island announced recently that it is studying the possibility of digging a tunnel that would link the port with Anacapri, high above Capri village. The two-mile-long funicular tunnel would not only reduce the queues for the funicular but also cut the number of buses and taxis using the island’s narrow, twisting roads. It is estimated that it would cost 100 million euros and take several years to construct.

Will Trump Follow Through On Guns? He Didn't Do So On Immigration.WASHINGTON ― President Donald Trump convened lawmakers at the White House for something unusual in today’s politics: a substantive, unscripted discussion of a contentious issue in which the president broke with party orthodoxy, all on camera. In the made-for-TV event on Wednesday, Trump struck a moderate tone and encouraged a group of Republicans and Democrats to act quickly on a comprehensive gun reform package. “I thought it was fascinating television, and it was surreal,” Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn (R-Texas), who sat next to the president, told reporters afterwards.
