RSF notes that over the past year, three journalists, one of them French, have been physically attacked by Tunisian police.RSF learns that a May Day meeting in Tunis organised by the underground weekly Kaws el-Karama could not be held because large numbers of police barred access to the meeting hall. As people saw this and left the area, Noughene was set upon by five plainclothes police who beat him up even though he told them he was an Algerian journalist. Three Tunisian trade unionists who tried to help him were also beaten and one, Fathi Debak, was taken to a nearby wood and severely beaten.A few hours earlier, police moved to disperse several hundred people who had gathered in Mohammed Ali Square, in Tunis, to celebrate May Day and show support for the Palestinians. A plainclothes policeman threw a tear-gas grenade – deliberately, according to witnesses – at Jalel Zoghlami, managing editor of Kaws el-Karama, and two trade unionists.last_img read more

Add to that the tourism benefits – the potential is huge.The port also has another role to play, in that we have to meet our climate change objectives and one of the ways we can do that is transport and reducing road haulage – a lot could be directed through Shannon Foynes Port.He described the meeting as “very encouraging”.“The presentation by company chief executive Pat Keating and former TD Michael Finucane who is on the board was very well received here by MEPs, EU Commission officials and others in Brussels. But it is essential that we have a commitment from the Irish government for their part and I will be raising the issue with the Taoiseach for that reason,” MEP Kelly said.The attendance included MEPs, European Commission officials, and representatives from the European Investment Bank, the Federation of European Port Operators and Private Terminals, Irish Maritime Development Office and Irish Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport officials.

Ahead of teams tour of South Africa : India to approach 2018 as the year to shed `poor travellers tag’

first_imgNEW DELHI (Reuters) – India will approach 2018 as the year to shed their “poor travellers” tag, head coach Ravi Shastri said ahead of the team’s tour of South Africa.India top the test rankings having sealed their record-equalling ninth consecutive series on Wednesday, six of which came at home and only one — against West Indies in the Caribbean — outside Asia.Sterner tests await Virat Kohli’s men next year when they also travel to England and Australia, where conditions will not be as conducive to their spinners as it is at home, and the moving ball will probe their batting technique.“This team is looking good and they have their priorities in place. They’re hungry to prove themselves home and away,” Shastri told the Times of India newspaper.“It’s often been argued that India are poor travellers. We want to be the team that helped change this perception and this is the year to do it.”“Frankly, we’re not too hooked on to this ‘home and away’ thing, where a lot of chatter goes on about conditions that aren’t too familiar,” the former test player added.”For instance, once you’ve played a test match in Kolkata, how long does it take before you play another test there? Two years? Sometimes three? It’s the same as an overseas tour.“So that mindset is quite passé. In this day and age, wherever you go, it’s home. You just got to walk in there and perform.”Starting on Jan. 5, India play three Tests in South Africa — as well as six one-day and three Twenty20 internationals — and, for a change, they will be relying more on pace than spin to succeed against the world second-ranked side.India have named five frontline pacemen in their 17-man squad, handing a maiden call-up to Jasprit Bumrah, whose unorthodox action and ability to bowl yorkers have made him a limited-overs asset.“…he has just worked his way to the top so well. He’s young, hard working, and has a unique action with which he can whip up quite some pace,” Shastri said of the 24-year-old.“Bumrah adds a lot of value to this attack. We have to earn those 20 wickets if we have to make any impact in a test match and we need all the arsenal possible because it’s going to be quite a testing tour.”last_img read more
