Bahrain sent message through Russia to normalise ties with Iran: Official | Politics News

[ad_1] Bahraini officials have previously said that Manama is seeking improved relations with Tehran after years of tensions. Bahrain has sent a request via Russia to re-establish diplomatic relations with Iran, Iranian news outlets have reported, citing presidential adviser Mohammad Jamshidi. The reports on Friday come after several public statements by Bahraini officials expressing openness to restoring ties with Iran after years of tensions between the two countries. “Bahrain has sent a message to Iran through Russia to normalise relations with Iran,” Jamshidi was quoted as saying by Iran’s Press TV. Manama had cut off diplomatic relations with Tehran in 2016 following a spike in tensions between Saudi Arabia and Iran. Bahrain had also accused Iran of involvement in antigovernment protests that swept the country in 2011. Saudi Arabia normalised its own relations with Iran as part of a Chinese-brokered agreement last year. Last month, during a visit to Moscow, Bahrain’s King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa said the Gulf island looks forward to improved relations with Iran. Bahrain’s state news agency BNA cited him …

D-Day veteran spreads message of peace ahead of 80th anniversary

[ad_1] On D-Day, Charles Shay was a 19-year-old U.S. Army medic who was ready to give his life — and save as many as he could. Now 99, he’s spreading a message of peace with tireless dedication as he’s about to take part in the 80th anniversary commemorations of the landings in Normandy that led to the liberation of France and Europe from Nazi Germany occupation. “I guess I was prepared to give my life if I had to. Fortunately, I did not have to,” Shay said in an interview with The Associated Press. A Penobscot tribe citizen from Indian Island in the U.S. state of Maine, Shay has been living in France since 2018, not far from the shores of Normandy where many world leaders are expected to come next month. Solemn ceremonies will be honoring the nearly 160,000 troops from Britain, the U.S., Canada and other nations who landed on June 6, 1944. Nothing could have prepared Shay for what happened that morning on Omaha Beach: bleeding soldiers, body parts and corpses strewn …

Andy Street sends message to Rishi Sunak after West Midlands mayoral election loss | Politics | News

[ad_1] Andy Street has sent a clear and forthright message to Rishi Sunak after he failed to be re-elected as West Midlands mayor. The Tory politician and business man agonisingly missed out on being returned to his office. He was pipped at the post by Labour’s Richard Parker, who graciously thanked his opponent for all his hard work in his victory speech. Mr Parker secured a very narrow victory in the mayoral election in a major upset for the Tories. He won by a sender thin majority of 1,508 votes – securing 37.8 percent of the vote, while Mr Street got 37.5 percent. Andy Street later appeared on Sky News and was asked what message he had for Britain’s Prime Minister after his defeat. The former Tory mayor said voters had consistently told him at the doorstep that “he had got the job done”. So he advised the Prime Minister to pay heed to the words of the West Midlamds’ voters. He said: “Concentrate on the job and getting that done. That’s what the people …

‘They’re sending a message’: harsh police tactics questioned amid US campus protest crackdowns | US campus protests

[ad_1] More than 1,400 people have been arrested across the US during a week of intense police crackdowns on a sprawling campus movement of pro-Palestine student demonstrations. As Joe Biden defended students’ free speech rights but warned them that “dissent must never lead to disorder”, colleges across the country brought law enforcement to campus to arrest dozens or even hundreds of protesters and clear away their encampments. But the level of force with which some of these law enforcement agencies have responded to protests, which in the overwhelming majority of cases have been peaceful, has shocked some observers – and even some of the people arrested. “It is a level of repression of campuses in the United States that I have not seen in my lifetime,” said Annelise Orleck, a 65-year-old Dartmouth labor historian who was arrested on Wednesday as she attempted to protect her students from lines of heavily armed riot police. Orleck, a former head of Dartmouth’s Jewish studies department, was grabbed by police, thrown to the ground and then dragged along the …
