'Mercenaries everywhere'

'Mercenaries everywhere' Gadhafi's residence at Tripoli's Aziziya Gates was guarded by loyalists along with a line of armed militiamen in vehicles, some masked, he said. The radio station building downtown was also heavily fortified. In one western neighborhood, security forces stormed several homes and arrested three or four people, a witness said, while tanks were deployed on the eastern outskirts, witnesses in at least one neighborhood said.
"Mercenaries are everywhere with weapons. You can't open a window or door. Snipers hunt people," said another resident, who said she had spent the night in her home awake hearing gunfire outside. "We are under siege, at the mercy of a man who is not a Muslim."

17 Bangladeshis among 150 hostages evacuated
Dhaka, Feb 24 (bdnews24.com) — Almost half of the 300 foreigners, held hostage by anti-government protesters in the Libyan city of Darnah, have been shifted to Egypt border. The hostages evacuated by the Libyan army on Wednesday night include 17 Bangladeshis, one of the rescued Bangladeshi hostages, Shafiuddin Biswas, told bdnews24.com over phone on Thursday morning. "As many as 150 of the hostages were safely brought to the Egyptian frontier on board two vehicles of the Libyan army," he said expressing his ignorance about the fate of the remaining hostages. "Perhaps, they have also been handed over to their respective company authorities," Shafiuddin said. Those who have shifted to the Egyptian border will be flown to Egypt on board an Egyptian aircraft, he added. He, however, said passports of all of the evacuated persons had been kept to their respective company authorities. "The companies have assured us that they would hand over the passports before noon," Shafiuddin said. Anti-government protesters held about 300 foreigners, including over 100 Bangladeshis, hostage in Darnah, east of Benghazi. bdnews24.com

'No Bangladeshi hostage in Libya'


Dhaka, Feb 22 (bdnews24.com) -- Foreign secretary Mijarul Quoyes has said no Bangladeshi has been taken hostage in Libya.

"Our ambassador in Libya has informed us that neither any Bangladeshi has been taken hostage nor there is any Bangladeshi casualty in the volatile southern region," he told reporters at a press briefing on Tuesday.

He said, "There has been unrest and everybody is suffering from a sense of insecurity in Libya and if necessary the government will evacuate the Bangladeshis. We've already discussed the issue with the ambassador."

A B M Nuruzzaman is currently working as Bangladesh ambassador to Libya.

"The ambassador has told us that communication channel is still working and physical movement is possible," Quoyes said.

"Our prime concern is to ensure safety and security of the Bangladeshis now there," he said.

About 40,000 Bangladeshis are working in Libya. "We want to move them to safer places," he added.

The communication system is down and the foreign office can contact the Bangladesh mission in Libya only at daytime, the secretary said adding, "There is a curfew in Tripoli, too."

About the recently held SAARC Council of Ministers meeting in Thimphu, the secretary said, "This is a landmark achievement that the council has adopted the SAARC Charter of Democracy."

The charter renounces unequivocally any unconstitutional change of government in any member countries and they will work together to restore democracy, he said.

The SAARC agriculture ministers will also have a meeting next month and they will decide on setting up a 'seed bank' in the region, Quoyes said.

"During the council meeting in Thimphu, the Bangladesh foreign minister in a bilateral meeting with her Indian counterpart strongly raised the issue of border killing," he said.

"This type of incident has raised confusion among Bangladeshi people and it may have a negative impact on bilateral relations," he added.

"We've asked them to take action against those responsible for Felani murder along the border," the secretary said adding, "The Indian authorities will inform us what action they'll take through diplomatic channel."

About the BIMSTEC secretariat, he said a coordination office of the regional body would be functional in Dhaka foreign ministry from April.

"The coordination office located in Bangkok was not in operational since May last year and as the BIMSTEC secretariat will be set up in Bangladesh, we've taken initiative to start the coordinating office form April," he said.

NEW YORK, Feb 22 (bdnews24.com/Reuters) - Time magazine's intelligence columnist reported on Tuesday that Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi has ordered hi


NEW YORK, Feb 22 (bdnews24.com/Reuters) - Time magazine's intelligence columnist reported on Tuesday that Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi has ordered his security forces to sabotage the country's oil facilities, citing a source close to the government.

In a column posted on Time's website, Robert Baer said the sabotage would begin by blowing up pipelines to the Mediterranean. However he added that the same source had also told him two weeks ago that unrest in neighboring countries would never spread to Libya -- an assertion that has turned out to be wrong.

"Among other things, Gaddafi has ordered security services to start sabotaging oil facilities," Baer wrote. "The sabotage, according to the insider, is meant to serve as a message to Libya's rebellious tribes: It's either me or chaos."

The growing violence in Libya has forced a number of oil companies to shut in production in Africa's third-largest oil producer and disrupted flows from the country's export terminals.

Security forces have cracked down fiercely on demonstrators across the country, with fighting spreading to Tripoli after erupting in Libya's oil-producing east last week. As the fighting has intensified some supporters have abandoned Gaddafi.

Baer, a former Middle East CIA officer, said the source told him that as of Monday Gaddafi had the loyalty of only about 5,000 of the country's 45,000-strong regular army.

Paraphrasing the source, he said that Gaddafi had also ordered the release from prison of the country's Islamist militant prisoners in hopes they would act on their own to sow chaos.

World Cup cricket- 2011" Ceremony Venue in Bangladesh




World Cup cricket- 2011" Ceremony Venue in Bangladesh


ICC World Cup 2011: Dhoni backs long format of tournament


ICC World Cup 2011: Dhoni backs long format of tournament


India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni gave the thumbs-up to the World Cup format, saying the gaps between matches would help players recover from minor injuries to allow him field the best XI.
On the other hand, several of Dhoni's counterparts felt that adapting quickly to the subcontinent conditions would be a challenge in the 45-day tournament being played in India, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh. "What's good is that all the teams are looking in good nick. And the format... there are long breaks in between [matches]. What it means is that if you play and have a bit of a niggle you can really recover and we all can always field our best XI. That's a big plus point for us. I think it will be an open tournament and the team that will play consistent cricket over the 45 days will lift the World Cup," Dhoni said.
"A lot has been said about the gap that exists between matches. So we will look to go to [see] some historical monuments during these gaps," he said, in a lighter vein, at a press conference here where captains of all 14 teams were present.
Dhoni also made the opening remarks after Australia captain Ricky Ponting. "The next 35 to 45 days will be really interesting for cricket because it's a mega event. Of course, you know that it will be held in sub-continental countries where cricket is among the biggest sports. I welcome all the other teams and ask them to enjoy the hospitality of the subcontinent and at the same enjoy cricket," he said, dressed in navy blue team blazer.
When asked about his reaction to Suresh Raina coming close to missing the flight from Chennai to Dhaka, Dhoni said he was not too concerned. "Not really when you have a squad of 15 you don't really mind it," he said. "Anyway there is always someone to give a lift to a cricketer in India. I didn't worry so much about it; just hoped all was well with him and which was the case."
Ponting admitted that a few senior players were not in the team due to injuries, but hoped that the replacements would step into their shoes well to fill the void.
Aiming for a fourth straight World Cup title for Australia - and his third successive as captain - Ponting said that he was confident that his team can go all the way to retain the crown if it adapts quickly to the conditions and the crowds of the subcontinent.
"Conditions we faced in both practice games [in India] were difficult. But we are actually quite happy going into our first game against Zimbabwe [in Ahmedabad on Monday] since arriving in the country two days before our first practice game," he said.
"We are looking ahead to the tournament. We are very proud of our record in the subcontinent as far as ODI cricket is concerned."
Andrew Strauss, who captained England to an Ashes win over Australia but lost the ODI series 1-6 Down Under recently, agreed with Ponting on adapting to local conditions quickly. "The conditions here are very different from what we encountered in Australia.
The key is to make the adjustments very quickly. There are not going to be any easy fixtures in this tournament," he averred.
Sri Lanka skipper Kumar Sangakkara said that the real test for teams will come in the quarterfinals and semi-finals.
"In a World Cup, you have got to be better than all the teams, not just the teams that you have mentioned [India, Pakistan and Sri Lanka]. Playing in from of home crowds and home grounds for most of the games will be quite important for us," he said.
"At the same time, the format itself means that if you manage to qualify for the quarter-finals, you've got a good chance to play two good games to get into the final. Consistency is the key, but if in the quarterfinals and the semifinals you get that it will be the most important thing."
Bangladesh captain Shakib-al Hasan said he has set high goals for his team. "We want to play the whole tournament. We had very good preparations in the last two-three weeks and guys are confident and they all are fit. We are looking forward to the tournament."

Tiger-hides, bones recovered, 1 arrested


Bagerhat, Feb 16 (bdnews24.com) —

Sundarban officials have recovered three tiger-hides, four skulls, and a large number of bones from Banglabazar village in Sharankhola Upazila. A team, led by Sundarban east portion official Mihir Kumar Do, conducted a raid around 9am on Wednesday and discovered the remains. The team arrested one Jamal Fakir, 38, believed to be linked with the incident. Fakir hails from Rayenda union. Fakir and the recovered tiger remains was taken to the forest department office around midday for questioning. The recovered Royal Bengal Tiger hides were measured to be 10 feet and two inches, nine feet and nine inches, and nine feet three inches long, while the number of 138 bones recovered weighed in at 31 kilograms. Fakir confessed of killing three tigers with the assistance of another 10-12 people. Operation team leader Do told bdnews24.com that the forest officials had been trying to trace the group of tiger hunters over the last last one and half months. Fakir was trapped in a deserted house of Banglabazar village after a false agreement was made to buy the remains from him for Tk 1,670,000. Do said they were initially suspecting that two, among the three hides, might have been of a male tiger and the third that of a female. bdnews24.com/corr/mi/ach/tk/1602h

Iran MPs want death penalty for opposition leaders


Iran MPs want death penalty for opposition leaders

TEHRAN, Feb 16 (bdnews24.com/Reuters) – Iranian lawmakers urged judiciary on Tuesday to hand out death penalties to opposition leaders for fomenting unrest in the Islamic state after a rally in which one person was killed and dozens were wounded, state media said. Clashes broke out between security forces and protesters when thousands of opposition supporters rallied in sympathy for popular uprisings in Egypt and Tunisia on Monday, reviving mass protests that shook Iran after a presidential vote in 2009. "(Opposition leaders) Mehdi Karroubi and Mirhossein Mousavi are corrupts on earth and should be tried," the official IRNA news agency quoted lawmakers as saying in a statement. The loose term "Corrupt on Earth," a charge which has been leveled at political dissidents in the past, carries the death penalty in the Islamic Iran. Judiciary spokesman Gholamhossein Mohseni-Ejei said: "Those who created public disorder on Monday will be confronted firmly and immediately." Iranian authorities have repeatedly accused opposition leaders of being part of a Western plot to overthrow the Islamic system. The claim has been denied by Mousavi and Karroubi. Parliament speaker Ali Larijani also accused the United States and its allies of providing support to the opposition. "The main aim of Americans was to simulate the recent events in the Middle East in Iran to divert attentions from those countries," Larijani said, state radio reported. Protests against Iran's clerical establishment appeared to have ended and life was back to normal in Tehran streets and other cities on Tuesday. INCREASING PRESSURE But wary of a repeat of the protests in 2009, which saw the biggest unrest since Iran's 1979 Islamic revolution, hardline rulers are expected to step up pressure on the opposition to prevent a new flare-up. The last anti-government protest in Iran was in December 2009 when eight people were killed. At least 20 pro-reform activists were arrested before the protests, opposition websites reported. State television described protesters as "Hypocrites, monarchists, thugs and seditionists." A senior police official said dozens of protesters had been arrested and at least nine policemen were wounded by "hypocrites." "We have information...that America, Britain ad Israel guided the opposition leaders who called for the rally," said deputy police chief Ahmadreza Radan, the semi-official Fars news agency reported. Iran's top authority Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has called the uprisings in Egypt and Tunisia against secular, Western-allied rulers an "Islamic awakening," akin to the 1979 revolution that overthrew the US-backed shah in Iran. But the opposition say events in Tunisia and Egypt mirror their own protests after the June 2009 vote which they say was rigged to secure President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's re-election. Authorities deny this. The opposition leaders, who called the protest, were prevented by security forces from participating the rally, Mousavi's website Kaleme reported. Amnesty International, Britain and the United States condemned the authorities' reaction to the protests. bdnews24.com/cr/1045 h.
