Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere, speaking in Passau in southern Germany, said he was not surprised by the report and added that the lists would be looked at individually. "We have told Turkey several times that such [activity] is not acceptable," he said. "Regardless of what you think of the Gulen movement, German law applies here and citizens who live here won't be spied on by foreign states," he said. The reports said the list included the names of more than 300 people and more than 200 associations, schools and other institutions and a German investigation indicated some of the photos may have been taken secretly. Warning The northern state of Lower Saxony even said it was warning suspected Gulen movement supporters about possible reprisals if they traveled to their homeland. "I think that is a justified and necessary measure to be able to warn people," said state interior minister Boris Pistorius.

ROME: Italian police on Wednesday captured a notorious Calabrian mobster wanted over a 2007 mafia massacre in which six people died in the German city of Duisburg. Santo Vottari, 45, was captured in a tiny hideout in a flat at Benestare, near the southern Italian city of Reggio-Calabria. The Calabria region is home to the 'Ndrangheta organised crime syndicate, now considered Italy's most powerful mafia group. Vottari was convicted in absentia in 2009 of being one of the heads of an 'Ndrangheta clan whose feud with local rivals culminated in the Duisburg killings. He was given a prison term of 10 years and eight months, two years after he went on the run. Interior Minister Marco Minniti praised the police team that tracked him down to a building which had no fewer than four concealed bunkers in it. Inside the fourth one they searched, on the top floor of the building, they found a trapdoor leading to another bolthole, where they found Vottari squashed into a space just big enough to hold someone hiding out for a few hours.

PARIS: Security forces at Paris' Orly airport on Saturday shot dead a man who grabbed a weapon from a soldier, as France was on alert just weeks away from presidential elections. The second largest airport in the French capital was evacuated following the shooting at around 8.30am (3.30pm Malaysia) and both terminals were closed, airport authorities said. "A man took a weapon from a soldier then hid in a shop in the airport before being shot dead by security forces," interior ministry spokesman Pierre-Henry Brandet told AFP. He said no one was wounded in the incident. Interior Minister Bruno Le Roux is due to visit the facility, in Paris' southern outskirts. Brandet said demining operations were underway to determine if the man had explosives on him. He said nearly 3,000 people had been evacuated from the southern terminal alone but those in the other one had been "confined".

Mexico does not need U.S. financial aid, Interior Minister Miguel Angel Osorio Chong said on Friday, after President Donald Trump ordered a report on such assistance given by the United States to its southern neighbor over the last five years. The main U.S. aid to Mexico is under the Plan Merida program which allocated $2.6 billion to security assistance. Trump asked for the review of aid in a Jan. 25 order on immigration security that mandated the construction of a border wall. Speaking on Mexican radio the day after a visit by U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Secretary of Homeland Security John Kelly, Osorio Chong said Mexico was a stronger country than when such aid deals were signed.

S. officials to detain and deport immigrants. Among other guidelines, this week’s memos seek to deport all undocumented immigrants who enter through Mexico back to Mexico, regardless of their country of origin . “Right now, Rex, who, as you know, he’s in Mexico. I said, ‘That’s gonna be a tough trip,’ because we have to be treated fairly by Mexico,” Trump said Thursday, ahead of a listening session with manufacturing executives at the White House. “That's gonna be a tough trip.” The Homeland Security Department on Tuesday released sweeping guidelines on deportations and the president’s long-promised border wall, a potentially ill-timed decision adding to the new administration’s diplomatic flare-ups with its southern neighbor. Tillerson met with Mexican officials, including its interior and finance secretaries. He will be joined later Thursday by Kelly for a working lunch with Videgaray and other officials before an afternoon meeting with Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto, who last month canceled a White House visit after Trump challenged him to accept that Mexico will fund the border wall.

These analyses reveal an astounding feature: There’s a patch of reversed polarity beneath southern Africa at the core-mantle boundary where the liquid iron outer core meets the slightly stiffer part of the Earth’s interior. In this area, the polarity of the field is opposite to the average global magnetic field. If we were able to use a compass deep under southern Africa, we would see that in this unusual patch north actually points south. This patch is the main culprit creating the South Atlantic Anomaly. In numerical simulations, unusual patches similar to the one beneath southern Africa appear immediately prior to geomagnetic reversals. The poles have reversed frequently over the history of the planet, but the last reversal is in the distant past , some 780,000 years ago. The rapid decay of the recent magnetic field, and its pattern of decay, naturally raises the question of what was happening prior to the last 160 years.

Before heading to Mexico, he went to Guatemala to meet with President Jimmy Morales and observed the arrival of a DHS repatriation flight at a government facility in Guatemala City.

Aside from President Nieto, the two are also scheduled to meet the Mexican ministers of interior, foreign relations, finance, national defense and the navy. Call did not go well The talks come weeks after Trump and Nieto spoke by phone on January 27, following the U.S. president’s inauguration. The call did not go well, according to officials in both countries who spoke on condition they not be named. Media reports say Trump chided his Mexican counterpart for failing to control drug trafficking and suggesting the United States might even deploy troops to defeat narcotics cartels on Mexican territory.
