5 dead in vehicle, knife attack at British Parliament – The Japan News

A knife-wielding man went on a deadly rampage in the heart of Britain’s seat of power Wednesday, plowing a car into pedestrians on London’s Westminster Bridge before stabbing a police officer to death inside the gates of Parliament. Five people were killed, including the assailant, and 40 others were injured in what Prime Minister Theresa May condemned as a “sick and depraved terrorist attack.” Lawmakers, lords, staff and visitors were locked down after the man was shot by police within the perimeter of Parliament, just meters from entrances to the building itself and in the shadow of the iconic Big Ben clock tower. He died, as did three pedestrians on the bridge, and the police officer. A doctor who treated the wounded from the bridge said some had “catastrophic” injuries. Three police officers, several French teenagers on a school trip, two Romanian tourists and five South Korean visitors were among the injured. Police said they were treating the attack as terrorism. There was no immediate claim of responsibility. Metropolitan Police counterterrorism chief Mark Rowley said police believed there was only one attacker, “but it would be foolish to be overconfident early on.” He said an unarmed policeman, three civilians and the attacker died. Forty others, including three police officers, were injured. Islamic extremism was suspected in the attack, Rowley said, adding that authorities believe they know the assailant’s identity but would not reveal it while the investigation was ongoing. The threat level for international terrorism in the U.K. was already listed at severe, meaning an attack was “highly likely.” Speaking outside 10 Downing St. after chairing a meeting of government’s emergency committee, COBRA, May said that level would not change. She said attempts to defeat British values of democracy and freedom through terrorism would fail. “Tomorrow morning, Parliament will meet as normal,” she said. Londoners and visitors “will all move forward together, never giving in to terror and never allowing the voices of hate and evil to drive us apart.” U.S. President Donald Trump was among world leaders offering condolences, and in Paris, the lights of the Eiffel Tower were to be dimmed in solidarity with London. London has been a target for terrorism many times over past decades. Just this weekend, hundreds of armed police took part in an exercise simulating a “marauding” terrorist attack on the River Thames. Wednesday was the anniversary of suicide bombings in the Brussels airport and subway that killed 32 people last year, and the latest events echoed recent vehicle attacks in Berlin and Nice, France. In the House of Commons, legislators were holding a series of votes on pensions when deputy Speaker Lindsay Hoyle announced that the sitting was being suspended and told lawmakers not to leave. Parliament was locked down for several hours, and the adjoining Westminster subway station was shuttered. Conservative lawmaker Tobias Ellwood, whose brother was killed in the Bali terror attack in 2002, performed first aid on the wounded police officer, who later died. About 10 yards away lay the assailant. “I tried to stem the flow of blood and give mouth to mouth while waiting for the medics to arrive but I think he had lost too much blood,” Ellwood said. “He had multiple wounds, under the arm and in the back.” The attack began early Wednesday afternoon as a driver in a gray SUV slammed into pedestrians on the bridge linking Parliament to the south bank of the River Thames. Former Polish foreign minister Radek Sikorski was in a car crossing the bridge when he heard “something like a car hitting metal sheet” and then saw people lying on the pavement. “I saw one person who gave no signs of life. One man was bleeding from his head. I saw five people who were at least seriously injured,” Sikorski told Poland’s TVN24. Ambulances arrived within minutes to treat people who lay scattered along the length of the bridge. One bloodied woman lay surrounded by a scattering of postcards. Police said one injured woman was pulled from the river. The car crashed into railings on the north side of the bridge, less than 200 meters from the entrance to Parliament. As people scattered in panic, witnesses saw a man holding a knife run toward the building. “The whole crowd just surged around the corner by the gates just opposite Big Ben,” said witness Rick Longley. “A guy came past my right shoulder with a big knife and just started plunging it into the policeman. I have never seen anything like that. I just can’t believe what I just saw.” The attacker managed to get past a gate into Parliament’s fenced-in New Palace Yard, a cobbled courtyard in the shadow of the Big Ben clock tower. Daily Mail journalist Quentin Letts said a man in black attacked the police officer before being shot two or three times as he tried to storm into the building. “As this attacker was running towards the entrance two plain-clothed guys with guns shouted at him what sounded like a warning, he ignored it and they shot two or three times and he fell,” Letts told the BBC. The attacker fell to the cobbles just yards from the entrance to 1,000-year-old Westminster Hall, the oldest part of the parliamentary complex, busy with visitors and school groups. Beyond that, a corridor leads to the building’s Central Lobby, flanked by House of Commons and House of [&'].....»»

‘Narcos’ star unveils ‘first resistance film’ of Bolsonaro era

"Narcos" star Wagner Moura premiered his new movie about a 1960s resistance hero Friday, calling it the first Brazilian blockbuster to attack state repression since far-right President Jair Bolsonaro came to power. "Marighella" features Brazilian superstar Seu Jorge as Marxist revolutionary Carlos Marighella, who led an armed rebellion against the military dictatorship until he was gunned down in a police ambush in 1969. Moura, 42, said the film, his directorial debut, had been in the works since 2013 but its release had dovetailed with a deeply polarised moment in his home country and around the globe.

Do-it-all Harvey Pagsanjan offers UE reason to hope in UAAP 82

Already armed with its foundational foreign student-athlete and Filipino-Kiwi, University of the East turned its attention to testing the local waters. In doing so, the Red Warriors have gotten a big fish for themselves in the form of Hope Christian High School standout Harvey Pagsanjan. “Sa UE ko na po napiling mag-college,” he said on Thursday. Pagsanjan has been the main man for the Manila-based high school in the last three years. Last year, he led them to the title in the Filipino-Chinese Amateur Athletic Championship. A 6-foot-1 guard, he has delivered the goods wherever his team needs it – whether it be scoring at one end and then cleaning the glass on the other. More importantly, he has consistently proven the ability to make plays for himself as well as his teammates. In last year’s National Basketball Training Center National Finals, Pagsanjan singlehandedly shot Hope to the Sweet 16. Now, he will no longer have to do such thing as, with the Red Warriors, he will play alongside Senegalese Alex Diakhite and Fil-Kiwi Ritchie Rodgers as well as stalwarts Philip Manalang and Alvin Pasaol. Even more, the 19-year-old is just the first domino to fall in what head coach Joe Silva is plotting to be a big-time offseason for the red and white. “The first of many,” he said. Pagsanjan is UE’s first blue-chip recruit in recent history. The school’s last was Paul Lee. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

Lockdown: Sarri keeps team in locker room after Chelsea loss

By Steve Douglas, Associated Press Unable to fathom his team's second-half capitulation, Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri kept his players in the locker room for around an hour after a humiliating 4-0 loss at Bournemouth on Wednesday. His assistants weren't allowed in the room. The media was kept waiting. Sarri simply wanted answers. "I needed to understand," Sarri said. "It's impossible to play in such a different way between the first and second half. I don't understand why." Sarri even started to question himself. "Maybe it's my fault," he added, "maybe I'm not able to motivate them." From 0-0 at halftime, Chelsea conceded four goals to slump to its heaviest loss so far in Sarri's turbulent reign. It's back-to-back league defeats for Chelsea, which was outplayed in a 2-0 loss at Arsenal 11 days earlier. That led to a coruscating attack from Sarri on his players' attitude and mentality. It hasn't had the desired effect, with Chelsea now out of the top four — on goals scored below Arsenal — in the race to secure one of the four Champions League qualification positions. Without one of them, Sarri surely won't survive more than a season at Stamford Bridge. Chelsea has long since exited the title race, which was thought to be down to two teams — Liverpool and Manchester City. However, Liverpool failed to fully capitalize on City's 2-1 loss to Newcastle on Tuesday by only drawing 1-1 at home to Leicester a day later, giving Juergen Klopp's team a five-point lead when it could have been seven. Now there might be a third team in contention, with Tottenham rallying to a 2-1 win over Watford to close to within seven points of Liverpool. ___ HIGUAIN INEFFECTIVE Gonzalo Higuain was handed a first Premier League start by Chelsea after his loan move from Juventus. It was a sobering night for the Argentine striker. He was substituted after 65 minutes, having failed to record a shot on target or look a significant upgrade on Olivier Giroud — the target man already at the London club. "You don't know what you are doing," sang Chelsea's fans when Sarri sent on Giroud as a replacement for Higuain, supposedly the answers to Chelsea's scoring problems. Josh King scored either side of a superb solo strike from David Brooks, before Charlie Daniels added a fourth for Bournemouth in second-half stoppage time. NERVOUS LIVERPOOL With Liverpool in position to win a first league title since 1990, the ground staff seems to be doing everything it can to help the team out. At halftime, workers cleared snow out of the penalty area that Liverpool was attacking but didn't do the same to the one the team was defending. Not that it mattered. This was an unconvincing, sometimes nervous display by the leaders, who couldn't build on the lead Sadio Mane gave them after 121 seconds — Liverpool's quickest league goal in nearly three years. Harry Maguire equalized in first-half stoppage time for Leicester, which has beaten Chelsea and Man City in the past five weeks. It was the first time since April that Liverpool has dropped points against anyone outside the so-called "Big Six" in the league. TOTTENHAM RECOVERS So much for Tottenham being in a crisis. After exiting two cup competitions in the space of four days last week, Tottenham ensured it can still have a say in the title race in the league by coming from behind against Watford. Craig Cathcart headed home a corner in the 38th to put Watford ahead but Son Heung-min marked his return from the Asian Cup duty with South Korea with an equalizer in the 80th. Fernando Llorente then made up for a glaring miss earlier in the game by heading home a cross to secure a second straight late comeback win for Spurs, who netted in injury time to earn a 2-1 win at Fulham in their previous league match. In Wednesday's other game, Wilfried Zaha scored and was later sent off for Crystal Palace in a 1-1 draw at Southampton, which moved four points clear of the relegation zone......»»

Maduro says United States wants Venezuela’s oil

  CARACAS, Venezuela --- Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro has pressed his case directly to the American people, asking for their help preventing a "Vietnam in Latin America." In a 45-second video shot late Tuesday from the presidential palace and addressed to "the American people," Maduro said the Trump administration is behind an attempt to overthrow him in a coup. He said the United States is looking to get its hands on Venezuela's abundant oil reserves, replicating U.S. military interventions in Iraq and Libya. But he said he's confident that he's on the "right side of history" and pleaded with regular Americans to keep U.S. troops out of the country.
