*Iraq May Ban Smoking

By Jack Healey

In a country where the power supply blinks off several times a day, where filling up on petrol can take hours and motorists stew in endless traffic jams, smoking is one pursuit that seems blissfully easy. A pack of cigarettes costs as little as 15p. They are everywhere, sold from mud-brick sheds along main roads, from card tables set up on city pavements and at countless shops throughout Baghdad. And you can light up almost anywhere, in buses, lifts and hospitals, even inside Iraq's parliament. But following the lead of Scotland, the rest of Britain, France, America and other western nations, Iraqi MPs are now seeking to marginalise smoking in public life, much to the annoyance of many of their constituents. Today they are set to consider a law banning smoking in ......Read More

*NATO Bombs Gaddafi's Compound, 3 Killed, 25 Wounded

By Reuters

Nato air strikes hit Muammar Gaddafi's compound on Thursday, hours after the Libyan leader was shown on television for the first time since another aerial attack killed his son nearly two weeks ago. Libyan officials who showed reporters around the scene of the air strike, at Gaddafi's Bab Al Aziziyah compound, said three people had been killed and 25 wounded. The corner of a two-storey building was blown away, leaving fragments of concrete on the street below. Deep craters were left in two other locations around the compound, which has been targeted several times since Nato began its campaign. Government spokesman Mussa Ibrahim said the strikes hit near ......Read More

*Bin Laden Sons Say Father's Killing Illegal

By Ariel Zirulnick

Assertions from Osama bin Laden's family that the killing of the Al Qaeda leader was illegal have been dismissed by the White House. “Are you kidding?” said Vice President Joe Biden when asked Tuesday about the family's calls for international bodies to investigate the legality of the assassination. In fact, the family is serious. International law has been "blatantly violated" and the US has set a very different example than "innocent until proven guilty" – a right upon which "western society is built," wrote Omar bin Laden, one of the 9/11 mastermind's 19 children, in a statement provided to the New York Times. He cited the trials for former Iraqi President Saddam Hussein and former Serbian President Slobodan Miloševiæ and asked why his father was not given the same opportunity to defend himself. In the statement, the bin Laden family members called on ......Read More

*Libya: NATO Bombs Gaddafi's Compound, Tripoli TV Offices

By Aljazeera Africa

NATO launched missile strikes overnight against targets in the Libyan capital, Tripoli, with blasts heard near Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi's compound, according to witnesses.

*Nigeria: How Jonathan Brokered Deal Between Ohakim, Araraume

By Gbenga Ogunbufunmi

The intervention of President Goodluck Jonathan was the magic that saw Governor Ikedi Ohakim regaining his confidence once more and hoping that the supplementary election ordered by the Independent National electoral Commission (INEC) may go in his favour. Ohakim almost lost to Rochas Okorocha, the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) governorship candidate for Imo State during the April 26 Governorship poll. The election was declared inconclusive in the state with INEC calling for a supplementary poll in some areas which held on Friday. The apprehension created by the few results that were released after the April 26 poll was interpreted by many to mean that ......Read More

*Okorocha wins Imo Governorship Race

By Chidi Nkwopara

Imo State capital virtually stood still as loyalists of All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, stromed the streets of the municipality to jubiliate over the declaration of their principal, Chief Rochas Anayo Okorocha, as the winner of the governorship election in the state. Motorcyclists, who were hitherto banned from plying the streets of the municipality defied the order and displayed all manner of acrobatics in the process, while emergency dancing troops emerged and danced to their rhythmic tunes. Traders in especially the New Market, Owerri, hired several commercial buses and headed for Ogboko, Ideato North local council area country home of Chief Okorocha. Many drinking places in the municipality were filled to ......Read More

*Nigeria: Fraud, Fights Mar Imo State Re-Run Election

By Anamesere Igboeroteonwu

Fist fights and fraud marred Nigeria's final state governorship election Friday, a re-run of a vote which was declared inconclusive last month because of widespread irregularities.Africa's most populous nation held presidential, parliament and state elections in April but the governorship race in Imo state, on the edge of the oil-producing Niger Delta, had to be held again in some areas after no winner could be declared. The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) ordered a fresh vote in four local government areas (LGAs) after ballot boxes were stolen and fake voting materials used. But Friday's re-run appeared to face similar ......Read More
