first_imgMidshalimah, 21, a Rohingya refugee who was among hundreds who arrived in Aceh early on Monday, has reportedly died from some form of respiratory illness.Lhokseumawe city public relations head Marzuki said on Wednesday that Midshalimah had complained of shortness of breath upon landing at Ujong Blang Beach in Lhokseumawe just after midnight.She and the others were taken to a temporary shelter at the vocational training center (BLK) in Mee village, Muara Dua district, North Aceh. “She was given medical treatment there, before being admitted to Cut Meutia General Hospital in North Aceh by ambulance. She died in the hospital,” Marzuki said as quoted by kompas.com.Midshalimah was buried at the Kuta Blang public cemetery in Lhokseumawe, he added.Midshalimah and 296 other Rohingya refugees had reportedly been at sea for six months before arriving in Aceh on Monday. They were spotted by local fishermen several kilometers off the coast of Lhokseumawe.Read also: Almost 300 Rohingya refugees arrive in Indonesia’s Aceh province A 13-year-old was also reportedly sick that day and was taken to hospital in an ambulance.Their arrival on Monday came following that of more than 100 Rohingya refugees rescued by Acehnese fishermen in late June, after Indonesian authorities had initially threatened to push them back.Fleeing persecution in Myanmar and refugee camps in Bangladesh, Rohingya refugees have for years boarded boats in an attempt to seek refuge in other Southeast Asian nations.Amnesty International Indonesia executive director Usman Hamid has urged the government to ensure that the refugees get sufficient food, shelter and essential health services, as well as protection from COVID-19 infection.“Rohingya refugees are still willing to risk everything in search of safety. Their testimonies, once again, show how perilous these boat journeys can be. Survivors said dozens among the group had died,” Usman said on Monday.“It is appalling that the Indonesian authorities are waiting for local fishermen to take the initiative in carrying out these rescues. The government, not private individuals, should have saved these lives.” (syk)Topics :last_img read more

A steel cutting ceremony to mark the start of the module construction was held at China’s COSCO yard on Tuesday, according to BW LNG, a unit of the Singapore-based gas shipping company BW Group. Once completed, the Wartsila module will be installed onboard Shell’s 2002-built LNG carrier Gallina that will be converted to an FSRU. Work has started on a regasification module that will be installed onboard El Salvador’s first floating and regasification unit. BW LNG signed a contract last year for the provision of an FSRU with U.S.-based private energy company Invenergy that is developing El Salvador’s first LNG-to-power project. Besides the floating LNG import facility, the project includes the construction of a 378-megawatt natural gas-fired power plant and an approximately 44-kilometer electric transmission. The project, expected to be able to meet 30 per cent of El Salvador’s energy demand, is scheduled to be operational by the end of 2021.last_img read more

first_img“The case or the issue at hand isno doubt [that] the Constitutional question has to be raised once and for allbecause it has serious effects on the Philippine international rights andobligations and it will have an effect on the Philippine legal system,”Sotto said. Senate President Vicente Sotto III Sotto said the resolution would not, inany way, dictate or impose anything on the Supreme Court and it should also notbe viewed as going against President Rodrigo Duterte. MANILA – The Senate has sought theclarification of the Supreme Court whether their concurrence is not needed inthe termination of the Visiting Forces Agreement (VFA) between the Philippinesand the United States. Senate Minority Leader Franklin Drilonsaid that he was “saddened” that the Senate cannot get a unanimousvote on a resolution which merely seeks to clarify the constitutionalboundaries of the chamber. The clarification with the high courtwas made after 12 senators voted for the Senate Resolution 337, sponsored inthe plenary by Senate President Vicente Sotto III on late Monday evening. “All that what we’re asking the SupremeCourt is to define our Constitutional boundaries, nothing else. We are notdictating the Supreme Court. We are in fact asking the Supreme Court to rule onthe decision,” the Ilonggo senator said. “The Supreme Court may rule that theSenate’s concurrence is not necessary and that settles the issue. If theSupreme Court rules that Senate concurrence is necessary, again that settlesthe issue,” he added. The Philippine government, upon theorder of President Duterte, has sent the notice of termination of the VFA whichgoverns the conduct of visiting US personnel holding military exercises in thePhilippines./PNlast_img read more

first_img He said: “I will be ready either way, as will everyone in the squad. “But certainly he looks fit and well and knowing the Championship well, if he can get through games in that, he can get through games in anything. “He is obviously fit and strong. It is good news. We want to qualify for the World Cup and he is obviously a massive part of it, so it’s good news for the whole squad. “We will wait and see. It’s up to him and the manager, but certainly, I will be ready either way.” Dunne’s fitness problems meant he missed the 0-0 draw with the Swedes in Stockholm in March, a game which saw Ireland effectively shackle dangerman Zlatan Ibrahimovic. However, while the onus will be on Giovanni Trapattoni’s defenders to keep the Paris St Germain striker at bay once again, O’Dea insists that task is one which will involve the whole team. He said: “Sometimes you can concentrate too much on one player. “If you can stop the service to him and him actually getting the ball in the first place, you go a long way towards stopping him. Press Association “When you played against Manchester United, everyone talked about Ronaldo and Rooney – really it was Paul Scholes you needed to stop because if they don’t have the ball, they can’t do much with it. “I think we will try to stop him from the front and not let the ball get anywhere near him, really.” Former Celtic defender O’Dea, 26, joined up with his international team-mates having swapped Toronto and the MLS for Ukraine having joined Metalurh Donetsk on a three-year deal. However, a gruelling journey to his new club took its toll and led to an enforced lay-off. He said: “I had travelled to Kansas with the Toronto squad to play, had to travel to Toronto and then on to Munich, to the Ukraine, and then 48 hours later I was playing my first game, and I never recovered after it, really. “Basically my body collapsed, I just gave in. I had done too much. I was pushing it. “I was halfway through a season, so I was very fit, but when I started in the games, I just felt drained. “But they have been fantastic with me there. They just shut me down for a while. I did a little mini-pre-season, just to get moving again, and now I feel great.” Dunne is likely to return to competitive action for Ireland against Sweden in Dublin on Friday evening with Austria waiting in the wings in Vienna four days later as the Group C campaign comes to a head. But the 33-year-old QPR defender has played only 25 minutes for his country since the Euro 2012 finals after missing an entire domestic season through injury, and O’Dea is on red alert. Darren O’Dea is ready and willing to step into Richard Dunne’s boots if two World Cup qualifiers inside five days prove too much for him.last_img read more
