Iraq vice-president sentenced to death amid deadly wave of insurgent attacks

Photograph: Karim Kadim/AP Iraq's fugitive Sunni vice-president was sentenced on Sunday to death by hanging on charges he masterminded death squads against rivals in a terror trial that has fuelled sectarian tensions in the country. Underscoring the instability, insurgents unleashed an onslaught of bombings and shootings across Iraq, killing at least 100 people in one of the deadliest days this year. It appeared unlikely that the attacks in 13 cities were all timed to coincide with the afternoon verdict that capped a month-long case against Tariq al-Hashemi, a longtime foe of Shia prime minister Nouri al-Maliki.

"No country could have produced the delivery we have made in 18 years," he told the SA Local Government Association (Salga) national conference in Midrand. He said government successes in service delivery were lost in the "hurley-burley" of competitive politics. Non-delivery of services often had to do with problems inherited from apartheid, he said. "There is a common tendency to look at government at all levels as if those who are governing have brought the problem, instead of deep seated challenges [from] the past.

Givers set up camp at Lonmin - Daily News

Team leader Dr Imtiaz Sooliman said they witnessed families surrounded by armed police and barbed wire and felt tension permeating the entire area. “Children, traumatised emotionally by the unpleasant events of the past few weeks, broke into tears when asked to collect items brought for them; the fear, the anxiety, the uncertainty is palpable,” he said.

As survivors of the violence at Small Koppie and the veld around it give their eyewitness accounts, there is no longer doubt: Among the policemen deployed at Marikana on 16 August, some intended murder.

Once those policemen are on the stand, we will have some idea as to what their orders were and what they intended to do. Yet the miners who were there do not see it that way at all. They believe they – and especially their leadership – were being targeted. Mangaung choices crucial – De Klerk. The outcome of the ANC’s elective conference in Mangaung at the end of the year could have a big effect on South Africa’s future, former president FW de Klerk said.

“I do think the choice of leadership in this December can positively or negatively effect our future in the short and the medium term,” he said yesterday, speaking at a Cape Town Press Club memorial dinner. It was important that ANC members attending the conference acted in the interests of the country, and not individuals. “Therefore I think it’s important that, in the context of a party structure, that the conference goers take good account of what is in the best interests not of person A or person B, but what is in the best interests of South Africa.” De Klerk called for a return to the spirit of seeking reconciliation that prevailed in the country in the years immediately after 1994. “How can we rise above grabbing and looking for positions and filling your pockets?” KZN politician ‘received death threats’
