Migrant caravan, down by almost half, soldiers on through Mexico

Migrant caravan, down by almost half, soldiers on through MexicoBy Delphine Schrank and Lizbeth Diaz MEXICO CITY (Reuters) – A “caravan” of Central American migrants pressed on through Mexico on Friday, greatly diminished in size a day after hundreds of exhausted members left a field where they had been stranded all week, pressured by government officials who have been under fire from U.S. President Donald Trump. About 800 people were left in the caravan, said Irineo Mujica, director of Pueblo Sin Fronteras, a group that has since 2010 been staging annual caravans to ensure safe passage for migrants and draw attention to their rights. This year’s caravan had about 1,500 migrants at its peak, but people began to leave the group after immigration authorities stalled it in the southern town of Matias Romero and screened men, women, and children following pressure from Trump.

Campaign urges Israel soldiers to refuse to shoot unarmed Palestinians

Campaign urges Israel soldiers to refuse to shoot unarmed PalestiniansA prominent campaign by an Israeli rights group on Thursday urged soldiers to refuse to shoot at unarmed Palestinians as tensions increased ahead of new protests along the Gaza border. The campaign by the B’Tselem NGO, which included advertisements in Israeli newspapers, led Israel’s public security minister to suggest the group should be investigated for calling for sedition. The calls come after a mass protest along the Gaza border last Friday that led to clashes with Israeli forces, who killed 17 Palestinians.

British and American soldiers killed in Syria were on mission to capture Isil member, Pentagon says

British and American soldiers killed in Syria were on mission to capture Isil member, Pentagon saysA British and an American soldier killed in Syria last week were on a secret mission to kill or capture a member of the Islamic State of Iraq in the Levant (Isil), the Pentagon has confirmed. Master Sgt. Jonathan Dunbar, from Austin, Texas, and Sgt. Matt Tonroe, an SAS sniper from Manchester, died in an improvised explosive devise blast in Manbij, Syria. The pair were killed and five other troops wounded on March 30. Few details have been released about the circumstances, but Major Adrian Rankine-Galloway, a Pentagon spokesman, said on Monday that they died in the top secret mission. The US military has not said whether the IED was in a building, a vehicle or buried in the road. The troops were out of their vehicles at the time of the explosion, according to a US official. There is also no word on whether the target was found and captured or killed. One indicator of the sensitivity of the mission was that Dunbar was identified publicly by the Army only as being "assigned to Headquarters, U.S. Army Special Operations Command, Fort Bragg, N.C." That specific language has been used in the past when troops killed in action have actually been part of the Army's elite Delta Force, a counterterrorism unit that is not publicly identified. CNN reported that Dunbar was assigned to Delta. Delta Force and the Naval Special Warfare Development Group – popularly known as Seal Team Six – are among the so-called Tier One units that specialise in high-risk counterterrorism and hostage rescue missions that are rarely acknowledged. Special operations forces have been in the Manbij area recently looking for high-value Isil operatives that may have fled to the area, the US official said. There are currently around 2,000 US troops in Syria, who mostly work with local allies fighting Isil. On Thursday President Donald Trump said that the US would "be coming out of Syria, like, very soon". It later emerged that he had suspended the funds for a $ 200 million stabilisation project in the country. His remarks caught military leaders off guard, and were strongly criticised by Lindsey Graham, Republican senator for South Carolina. Mr Graham warned that pulling out of Syria now, with Isil on the run, would be “the single worst decision” that the president could make.
