Meanwhile, Blues coach Laurie Daley named his squad for the 2017 blockbuster on May 22, per Fox Sports: Second row Boyd Cordner will captain the New South Wales team in place of National Rugby League icon Paul Gallen after the 35-year-old announced his retirement from Origin play. One notable absence from Daley's lineup is Parramatta Eels star Michael Jennings, although the centre responded with humility after learning of his omission from the Game 1 squad, via 7 News Sydney: There's no overstating just how dramatic Thurston's absence could be for Queensland as 22-year-old debutant Anthony Milford prepares to take his place at five-eighth. However, Brisbane Broncos centre Justin Hodges expects his club team-mate to stand up well to the pressure, per Phil Lutton of the Sydney Morning Herald : "It's going to be tough for him. Until you are out there, until you are in the battle and especially in those tight games, it's like you are going to hell and back.

These websites include the Arabic-language edition of Huffington Post and website of the Qatar-based Aljazeera network. The type of communication blockage used to interrupt Mada Masr is known as a RST injection attack. According to a note from their editors posted on Facebook, this technique uses a third party to monitor and interfere with Internet traffic moving to and from the target website. While websites have been blocked in Egypt before, this marks the first time the government has publicly announced their decision to do so. Is this kind of censorship legal? Under the patronage of President Abdelfattah El Sisi, Egypt has taken great measures to curb dissent, through targeting of individual journalists and online activists, and by imposing pro-government media policies. And while officials did not give the Mada Masr team a precise explanation of the blocking, the legality of this act remains in question.

When will Mosul be liberated? – Inside Story Iraqi government forces say they're closing in on the last remaining parts of western Mosul still held by ISIL. The western part of Iraq's second city is ISIL's last remaining Iraqi stronghold. The latest part of the battle for Mosul launched last October was announced on Saturday. Fighting's focussed on three western neighborhoods. Re-capturing them will pave the way for Iraqi forces, backed by US led coalition airstrikes, to begin a final push for the old city. The fall of Mosul would end ISIL's so-called caliphate in Iraq. How big a challenge is that? And what would the fall of Mosul mean for ISIL's future? Presenter: Hashem Ahelbarra Guests: Judit Neurink, Journalist and author of 'The War of ISIS: On the Road to the Caliphate' Ahmed Rushdi, Director of the House of Iraqi Expertise foundation Tom Robinson, Oxfam's Emergency Team Lead in Iraq - Subscribe to our channel: http://aje.

A lot of change occurred within the global political landscape this week (or so it seems). We saw President Donald Trump deliver a powerful keynote speech at the Arab Islamic American Summit in Saudi Arabia, where he signed the largest arms deal in U.S. history. Instead of being a speech about radical Islam, which many believe to be a creation of the western military alliance, his speech in Saudi Arabia was one that discussed a future of peace and unity. Though it still contained a bit of fear mongering, it came as a surprise to many. Trump even announced that the U.S. was going to stop financing terrorist groups, a move that presumably would upset the elite and those who profit off war and terror. The fact that he has called out the US government multiple times for funding terrorism, is quite remarkable. It's something that prior presidents never even talked about.
