Detainee in Afghanistan likely to be tried in Virginia
The Obama administration is preparing to transfer a military detainee in Afghanistan for criminal trial in Virginia, U. S. officials said Thursday.
The move would mark the first time a military detainee from Afghanistan was brought to the U. S. for trial, and it represents the Obama administration’s latest attempt to show that it can use the criminal court system to deal with terror suspects.
The prisoner, known as Irek Hamidullan, is a Russian veteran of the Soviet war in Afghanistan who defected to the Taliban and stayed in the country, U.
BAMAKO, Mali — Mali reported its first case of Ebola late Thursday, marking a major setback for West African efforts to contain the deadly virus that now has affected six countries in the region and left nearly 5,000 dead.
Health Minister Ousmane Kone made the announcement on Malian television, saying that the patient was a 2-year-old girl who had come from neighboring Guinea, where the Ebola epidemic began last December.
The child was tested for the virus Wednesday at a hospital in the Malian town of Kayes, about 375 miles from the capital of Bamako.
Nova Star Cruises said Thursday that its ferry, which makes daily round trips between Portland and Yarmouth, Nova Scotia, during the tourist season, has received advance bookings for 43 motor coaches in 2015, despite its uncertain future.
That would be a big improvement over its recently completed inaugural season, which served an estimated 19 motor coaches, according to the company.
The ferry operator said in a news release that it expects to book even more motor coaches because company officials will attend several trade shows over the coming months.
The company says the ferry will return next season, but the service’s future ultimately will be determined by the Nova Scotia government, which allocated $23 million to support the Nova Star this season and has yet to decide the extent of its support for next year.
Nova Scotia’s minister of economic and rural development and tourism, Michel Samson, said in mid-October that there was no guarantee the Nova Star would return next season.
The government has hired a financial adviser with experience in the ferry industry to examine the company’s cost structure and develop a plan for moving forward.
Officials at Nova Star Cruises say the service didn’t attract many motor coaches this year because of its late start.
WASHINGTON — Hurricane and Jordan, a pair of Secret Service dogs who were injured as they helped take down a White House fence jumper, got the all-clear to return to duty Thursday and quickly became stars for the beleaguered agency.
White House press secretary Josh Earnest hailed the duo at a daily press briefing Thursday and the Secret Service tweeted out their service pictures and mini-bios: “Jordan – black/tan Belgian Malinois, brown eyes, age 5, enjoys walks around (the) White House.”
Jordan and Hurricane, age 6, were taken to a veterinarian Wednesday and treated for “minor bruising,” Secret Service spokesman Brian Leary said.
