U.S-SUDAN

The United States has formally removed Sudan’s designation as a “state sponsor of terrorism”,  after nearly 27 years of putting the country on its blacklist.

The announcement was made by the US embassy in Khartoum on Sunday and comes into effect on Monday.

Recall that the US government added Sudan to its list of state sponsors of terrorism in 1993 over allegations that al-Bashir’s government was allegedly supporting “terrorist” groups.

US President Donald Trump had said in October that the U.S was going to remove Sudan from the list after Khartoum paid a $335m settlement to American victims of an attack by armed groups on US embassies in Kenya and Tanzania in 1998.

The first direct flights since 2017 between Qatar and its former rivals Egypt and the UAE took to the skies on Monday, following the end of a regional crisis.

Egypt and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) joined Saudi Arabia and Bahrain in cutting ties with Qatar in June 2017, accusing it of being too close to Iran and of backing Islamic extremists, charges Doha denies.

POLICE DETAIN KREMLIN CRITIC NAVALNY ON RETURN TO RUSSIA

Published

KREMLIN CRITIC NAVALNY

Police detained prominent Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny on arrival at a Moscow airport after he flew home to Russia from Germany for the first time since he was poisoned in the middle of last year.
The move on Sunday, which could see Navalny jailed for three and a half years for allegedly flouting the terms of a suspended prison sentence, is likely to set off a wave of Western criticism of President Vladimir Putin.
In a case that drew wide international attention, Navalny was poisoned last year by what German military tests showed was a Novichok nerve agent, a version of events the Kremlin rejects.
Navalny’s plane from Berlin was diverted to another Moscow airport at the last minute in an apparent effort by authorities to thwart journalists and supporters from greeting him.
After Navalny said last week that he planned to return home, the Moscow prison service (FSIN) said it would do everything to arrest him once he returned, accusing him of flouting the terms of a suspended prison sentence for embezzlement, a 2014 case he says was trumped up.

But the 44-year-old opposition politician laughed and joked with journalists on his plane, saying he did not believe he would be arrested.
In the event, he was swiftly detained when he showed his passport to border guards before formally entering Russiaa. His wife, Yulia, his spokeswoman, and his lawyer were allowed to enter Russia.
FSIN said in a statement Navalny had been detained due to the alleged violations of his suspended prison sentence and would be held in custody until a court hearing later this month that will rule whether to convert his suspended sentence into a jail term.
Navalny, one of Putin’s most prominent domestic critics, faces potential trouble in three other criminal cases too, all of which he says are politically motivated.
Navalny has said Putin was behind his poisoning. The Kremlin denied involvement, said it has seen no evidence that he was poisoned, and that he was free to return to Russia.
