Australia said it would open a defence and trade office in the west of the holy city and Prime Minister Scott Morrison also committed to recognising a future state of Palestine with east Jerusalem as its capital.

  • Egypt unearths tomb of ancient high priest news

    Egyptian archaeologists have discovered the tomb of a priest dating back more than 4,400 years in the pyramid complex of Saqqara south of the capital Cairo, authorities said Saturday. "Today we are announcing the last discovery of the year 2018, it's a new discovery, it's a private tomb," Antiquities Minister Khaled el-Enany told an audience of invited guests including reporters. "It is exceptionally well preserved, coloured, with sculpture inside. It belongs to a high official priest... (and) is more than 4,400 years old," he said. The tomb belongs to "Wahtye", a high priest who served during the fifth dynasty reign of King Neferirkare, the antiquities ministry said. A view of the newly-discovered tomb of 'Wahtye' Credit: Reuters His tomb is decorated with scenes showing the royal priest alongside his mother, wife and other members of his family, the ministry said in a statement. It also contains more than a dozen niches and 24 colourful statues of the cleric and members of his family, it said. In November archaeology officials announced the discovery in Saqqara of seven sarcophagi, some dating back more than 6,000 years, during excavation work started in April by the same archaeological mission. An external view of the site Credit: Anadolu Three of those tombs contained mummified cats and scarabs. The Saqqara necropolis south of Cairo is home to the famous Djoser pyramid, a more than 4,600-year-old construction which dominates the site and was Egypt's first stone monument. The tomb, built by the master architect Imhotep for the Pharoah Djoser, stood 62 metres tall originally and is considered the oldest building in the world built entirely of stone.

  • Qatar Ruler Says Talks With Saudi Begin Only When Embargo Lifted

    “Our position on the solution hasn’t changed,” Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani said at a conference in Doha on Saturday. Last week, Sheikh Tamim spurned an invitation from Saudi Arabia’s King Salman to attend a gathering of Gulf monarchies, which was seen as a sign of thawing relations after 18 months of Qatar’s boycott by the kingdom, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Egypt. The overture came as Saudi Arabia sought to defuse pressure over the killing of a vocal critic in Istanbul.

  • Isil defeated in its last Syrian town as jihadists mount final stand news

    The last Syrian town under the control of Islamic State fell on Friday, marking a defeat for the jihadists which will prove difficult to come back from. The flag of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), the US and UK-backed fighters battling Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil), was erected in the central square in Hajin, eastern Deir Ezzor province. The Kurdish-dominated SDF faced one of their toughest battles in the war against Isil in Hajin, a nondescript town which had become the site of Isil’s last major stand in Syria. “Just about every Daesh we came across had a suicide belt,” said one commander involved in the battle, using the Arabic acronym for the group. “They saw it as end of days and were using every weapon they had.” Isil is thought to now only have a few hundred militants left holding out in villages around Hajin and in the small sliver of land left between Syria and Iraq. A Syrian displaced woman carries her child inside a refugee camp of al-Hol in Hasakeh governorate in northeastern Syria  Credit: AFP Most of Isil’s remaining senior leaders had been in the town in recent months, but it is not clear whether they have been killed or managed to escape to desert land along the border before the SDF established its chokehold. All recent US intelligence also suggests Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, Isil’s leader, is alive and hiding out among the group’s final vestiges. “This was always going to be a fight to the death,” Nouri Mahmoud, spokesman of the Syrian Kurdish militia known as People's Protection Units or YPG - the main component of SDF, told the Telegraph during a visit trip to northern Syria. “A lot of senior fighters and commanders had spent months preparing for this fight and were not about to give up.” The operation on Hajin was launched on September 10 and took a heavy toll, according to figures collected by the UK-based monitor the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which show at least 900 jihadists and 500 SDF fighters were killed in the fighting. Isil launched a particularly deadly counterattack in early November, which saw the jihadists use the cover of a sandstorm to overrun an SDF base and capture dozens. #SDF flag in #Hajin bazaar place, center of the town. via— zana amed (@zana_med) December 13, 2018 The battle was then briefly paused after Turkey, which considers the YPG a terrorist group because of its organisational links to the insurgent Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK), began shelling Kurdish troops over the border. Fresh Turkish threats could jeopardise the last stage of the SDF offensive. Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Turkey’s president, this week warned it is planning a new assault on the Kurds - this time east of the Euphrates river. A spokesman for the Turkish-backed opposition National Army said up to 15,000 Syrian rebels were ready to join Turkey's forces. The US, which has warned Turkey against such a move, will have to decide whether to back the Kurds and risk confrontation with a Nato ally, or effectively give Turkey a green light. The Kurds have warned that any attack from Turkey would distract the SDF from the battle against Isil, which could risk giving the group the oxygen to regroup in Deir Ezzor. Brett McGurk, the US anti-Isil envoy, also cautioned earlier this week that the “battle against (Isil) in the Middle Euphrates Valley” was not over yet. “It’s going to take time, but it will get done,” McGurk continued. “It’s a very difficult campaign.” The Trump administration has said it will remain in Syria for as long as it takes to defeat Isil, but it remains uncertain if the SDF has the manpower and resources to keep control of the vast territory it has captured once their ally is gone.

Nielsen called the death of the unidentified girl “a very sad example of the dangers of this journey” as she defended her department’s response to the incident. The office also said it would continue an “ongoing program of unannounced inspections” of CBP and Immigration and Customs Enforcement facilities, and report those results publicly as well.

  • Migrant girl, 7, 'dies of dehydration while in Border Patrol custody' in US news

    A seven-year-old Guatemalan girl died hours after being taken into custody for illegally attempting to enter the US, officials said. The girl, named as Jackeline Caal by Guatemala's foreign ministry, died of dehydration and shock around nine hours after being taken into US custody. Jackeline and her father, identified as 29-year-old Nery Caal, were part of a large group of migrants who were detained by border patrol agents after they were found along a remote stretch of the US-Mexico border.  Border officials as saying she had not eaten or consumed water for several days.  Jackeline's death raises questions over how officials assess the welfare of migrants they take into custody at a time when increasing numbers of children and families are making the difficult journey north from Central America. Many of them say they are fleeing persecution, poverty and violence in their home countries. Honduran migrants sit after crossing the US border wall and turning themselves into US border patrol agents in San Diego Credit: AP President Donald Trump's administration has come under fire for its hard-line stance on immigration, including stating that he had authorised US troops to use "lethal force" on the border if necessary.  Jackeline and her father were taken into custody at about 9.15 pm on December 6 in a group of 163 people in remote New Mexico, about 90 miles from the nearest Border Patrol station in Lordsburg.  A Border Patrol form completed shortly after she was detained said she showed no signs of sickness but the agency confirmed the girl later started experiencing fever and seizures while in its custody. Jackeline's father said she began vomiting hours after being placed on a bus to a border patrol station and had stopped breathing by the time she arrived at the facility.  Emergency medical technicians revived her and she was flown to a hospital in El Paso, Texas, where she suffered cardiac arrest and died shortly after midnight on December 8, officials said.    A U.S. Border Patrol agent patrols Sunland Park along the U.S.-Mexico border Credit: AP They added that Jackeline's father was driven to El Paso and was at the hospital when she died. It comes after a toddler died in May just after being released from an Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detention facility in Texas. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) said the girl was "apprehended with her father for illegal entry with a group of 163 illegal aliens" on Thursday of last week. Kirstjen Nielsen, the DHS chief, told Fox News: "It's heart-wrenching. This is a very sad example of the dangers of this journey. This family chose to cross illegally." A department statement earlier said: "Our sincerest condolences go out to the family of the child. "Border Patrol agents took every possible step to save the child's life under the most trying of circumstances. As fathers and mothers, brothers and sisters, we empathise with the loss of any child." The DHS watchdog will review the incident and an autopsy into Jackeline's death has been scheduled. The head of the Department of Homeland Security, which oversees Customs and Border Protection, will appear in front of the House of Representatives Judiciary Committee next week, Jerry Nadler, the top Democrat on the panel, said on Twitter. "We will be demanding immediate answers to this tragedy," Mr Nadler said. Guatemalan consular officials said they have spoken with the father who was deeply upset. "It is important to show that, unfortunately, the places where migrants now enter are more dangerous and the distances they travel are greater," they said. In a separate development, it emerged this week that authorities arrested 170 immigrants who came forward to sponsor migrant children in government custody. ICE said that the arrests were of people suspected of being in the country illegally and were the result of background checks. Nearly two thirds of those arrested, 109 in all, had no criminal record, the agency said. Another 61 of those arrested did have criminal records, but ICE said it could not break down convictions by violent and nonviolent offences. The arrests follow a move by Mr Trump's administration earlier this year that allowed immigration authorities to examine the criminal background and legal status of anyone who steps forward to sponsor unaccompanied migrant children, usually parents or close relatives already in the US, as well as any other adults living in their home.
