  • Dog feared to have cancer had actually eaten four teddy bears... but vet didn't realise until midway through operation 

    Golocal247.com news

    A dog feared to cancer had actually eaten four teddy bears, but the vet did not realise until halfway through the operation. Eight-year-old St Bernard Maisy was taken for a CT scan after she was taken ill, which showed a mass on her spleen and an unusually full stomach, seemingly showing she had not digested her food properly. Her owner, Jane Dickinson, from Dewsbury in West Yorkshire, feared the worst as she took her pet to Paragon Veterinary Referrals in Wakefield. It would not be unusual for Maisy, an elderly dog, to have cancer at her advanced age. However, vet surgeon Nick Blackburn ruled out any fatal disease when he carried out the operation to remove Maisy’s spleen and found her stomach was full of soft toys. Maisy is now reportedly 'loving life' Credit:  Paragon Vet Referrals / SWNS.com He said : "It's fair to say this was not something we were expecting to find! We all know certain dogs enjoy chewing things they shouldn't but managing to devour four full teddy bears is quite a feat. "I know Jane was worried about Maisy as she is quite old for a St Bernard, so we were naturally delighted the operation was such a success and we were able to return a happy, healthy dog to the Dickinsons.” Her owner said she had never seen the gentle giant chewing or eating toys, but that now the operation has been completed Maisy is “loving life”. An x-ray showing the teddy bears within the stomach. Credit: Paragon Vet Referrals / SWNS.com Ms Dickinson explained: "When Maisy went in I did think 'is she coming out?' but she is loving life now - it's like she's got her youth back. "The toys weren't even hers! She will steal the chihuahuas' toys and play with them but I've never seen her trying to chew them. Her eating habits had been completely normal. "I didn't even recognise one of the toys - my brother also keeps chihuahuas and it turns out it belonged to his dog." Maisy has since made a full recovery from her operation and a histology report has shown no signs of cancer.

  • 'Flamboyant' jihadi linked to 9/11 terror cell captured by Kurdish forces in Syria

    Golocal247.com news

    A Syrian-German jihadist linked to the 9/11 attacks on the United States has been captured in Syria by US-backed forces, the Pentagon said on Thursday. Mohammad Haydar Zammar, who has been accused of recruiting some of the 9/11 Al-Qaeda hijackers, was captured over a month ago by the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), a Kurdish-led militia backed by the US. News of his capture was first reported on Wednesday by the Kurdish group. The Pentagon had said it was looking into the reports before confirming Zammar’s arrest. "We can confirm that Mohammad Haydar Zammar, a Syrian-born German national, was captured more than a month ago by SDF partners as part of their ongoing operations to defeat ISIS inside Syria," Pentagon spokesman Eric Pahon said, using an alternate name for the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL). "We are working with our SDF partners to obtain additional details," Pahon said. The 9/11 Commission report into the attacks in Washington and New York that led to the deaths of almost 3,000 people described Zammar as an “outspoken, flamboyant Islamist” who “had fought in Afghanistan and relished any opportunity to extol the virtues of violent jihad.” According to the report, Zammar took credit for influencing people linked to the attacks including Mohammed Atta, who hijacked an American Airlines plane and flew it into the North Tower of the World Trade Center. Zammar had come into contact with Atta and others linked to the attacks while living in Hamburg, in 1997, the report says. Seven foiled UK terror plots Zammar was detained in Morocco in December 2001 in an operation involving CIA agents, and was handed over to the Syrian authorities two weeks later. He was subsequently sentenced to 12 years in prison in 2007 for belonging to the Muslim Brotherhood. He was reportedly freed from prison in 2014 in a prison swap organised with Islamist group Ahrar al-Sham. The SDF, which has been a key western ally in the fight against Isil, has detained several high-profile foreign members of Isil as the jihadist group’s grip on Syria has collapsed. They are currently holding two alleged members of the notorious Isil torture cell known as ‘the Beatles.’ El Shafee Elsheikh and Alexandra Kotey were captured by the group in February. The two are accused of being involved in the execution and torture of hostages. US officials believe there are hundreds of foreign fighters and thousands of Syrian Isil militants in SDF custody.

    By Andrius Sytas VILNIUS (Reuters) - Lithuania wants the United States to bring more defence systems such as long-range Patriot and short-range Avenger missiles to the Baltics where some fear Russia is more powerful in the air. The country has asked Washington to install the systems more regularly for exercises, arguing NATO needs to know the region well in case of conflict, Defence Minister Raimundas Karoblis told Reuters. "We are talking not only about the Patriots but also other capabilities, such as short-range Avengers, and other systems to create a regional architecture of air defence, because we are not able to do that ourselves." Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia, once ruled from Moscow but now part of NATO and the European Union, need Western help despite growing defence budgets due to their small economies.

  • Chinese military 'challenged Australian warships in the South China Sea'

    Golocal247.com news

    Malcolm Turnbull, the Australian prime minister, asserted his country's rights to conduct patrols in the South China Sea after reports of a confrontation with China amid rising tensions in the disputed waters. China's navy was said to have been involved in a "robust" but polite confrontation with three Australian warships in the strategically important sea, according to Australian Broadcasting Corp (ABC). The broadcaster, which first reported the incident, said it was "believed to have occurred earlier this month as China was conducting its largest ever naval exercises". Mr Turnbull, who is in London on a visit, did not comment on the specific confrontation, which is said to have taken place off the coast of Vietnam. But when prompted by reporters, he said: "We maintain and practice the right of freedom of navigation and overflight throughout the world and, in this context, we're talking about naval vessels on the world's oceans, including the South China Sea, as is our perfect right in accordance with international law." Australian defence officials did not confirm the confrontation took place, but said three warships had arrived in Ho Chi Minh City on Thursday. They are making a three-day goodwill visit to Vietnam. Chinese President Xi Jinping delivers a speech during China's drills last week  Credit: Xinhua/Reuters On the same day, Chinese President Xi Jinping presided over huge exercises in the South China Sea in an unmistakable show of force to Beijing's regional rivals. The drills involved 48 ships, among them China's sole operating aircraft carrier, the Liaoning, along with 76 helicopters, fighter jets and bombers, and more than 10,000 personnel. ABC said the HMAS Anzac, HMAS Toowoomba and HMAS Success were challenged by China's People's Liberation Army (PLA) Navy. China claims almost all of the South China Sea, where more than $5 trillion (£3.8 trillion) of trade passes every year.  Much of the sea is also claimed by several south-east Asian nations, including the Philippines, Brunei, Malaysia, and Vietnam. Royal Australian Navy frigate HMAS Success prepares to dock at Saigon port in Ho Chi Minh City last week. Credit: Van Khoa/Thanh Nien News Observers say China is developing its military capabilities by fortifying and building infrastructure on what were previously reefs and partially-submerged islets. The US Navy has been confronting China in the region with 'freedom of navigation' exercises. It sent the aircraft carriers Theodore Roosevelt and Carl Vinson through the South China Sea in recent months, angering Beijing. Washington has also called on Australia to carry out similar patrols.
