Injured blast victim returns to HK

Posted on 30 June 2015 by admin

One of five Hong Kong residents injured in Saturday’s dust explosion at a water park in New Taipei City returned to the SAR for further treatment on Monday, while another went to Shanghai where her parents live.

The five Hong Kong victims were seriously burned after coloured cornstarch used at a music event ignited, injuring nearly 500 people. The blast claimed its first life on Monday after a 20-year-old woman died from 90-per cent burns.

Lee Yi-lam, 18, who was flown back to the SAR, was admitted to Queen Mary Hospital. Her father said her condition was better than expected but she still needs to be hospitalised for two months.

Yip Kei-tung, 18, who suffered 50-per cent burns, was transferred to Shanghai on Monday night.

The New Taipei City government will cover all of their medical expenses in Taiwan. The cost of the jet ambulance will be settled by an insurance company and the victims’ families.

The other three Hong Kong residents remain in Taiwan hospitals. Two of them — Chow Wing-shan, 25, and Chan Hiu-yin, 18 — were in stable condition. The most seriously injured Hong Kong victim, 19-year-old woman Mok Tsz-ching, is still being treated in the intensive care unit of Linkou Chang Gung Memorial Hospital in Taipei.

Mok, who received 65-per cent burns, was conscious when visited by family members, but was only able to nod to communicate. It is expected that Mok, who underwent six hours of surgery on Monday, would need further operations, such as replacing burned skin with artificial skin.

A doctor at Taipei City Hospital Zhongxing Branch refused to allow Chow, who suffered 50-per cent burns, to be transferred to other hospitals immediately, saying there could be a risk of infection that could affect her internal organs and kidney. The hospital plans to transfer Chow to a special medical centre for treatment. 

The explosion has called into question the safety of two upcoming similar events in Hong Kong to be held at the AsiaWorld-Expo — next month’s Life in colour Paint Party and the colour Run in December.

The fate of the colour Run is up in the air as it plans to use similar coloured cornstarch to spray its participants, while the colour Paint Party may go ahead after  claiming it will only use liquid paint.

AsiaWorld-Expo has decided to shelve the application for colour Run amid public concern over the safety of coloured powder.

Some participants have called for both events to be cancelled, while others demanded refunds for tickets purchased for July’s music party, but were refused as the organiser assured that the event would be safe.

In a statement, a spokesman for the organiser of colour Run denied that the coloured cornstarch to be used at the event is unsafe, explaining that it’s different from that used in Taipei.

Secretary for Food and Health Ko Wing-man said the government has yet to issue the licenses for the two events pending an assessment by the Fire Services Department.

Acting deputy chief fire officer Tsang Wing-hung said the department will further study the paint samples submitted by the organisers for next month’s event. The department did not find any coloured powder after carrying out a surprise inspection of 28 entertainment venues on Sunday.

At the request of lawmakers, the Legislative Council is likely to hold an urgent meeting next Wednesday to discuss the use of cornstarch for similar events.

Fil-Am teen arrested for plotting terrorist attacks for IS

Posted on 30 June 2015 by admin

Publication Date : 30-06-2015

 

Federal authorities have arrested 19-year-old Filipino American Justin Nojan Sullivan of Morganton, North Carolina for threatening to carry out assassinations in the US in support of the Islamic State terrorist group.

According to a 12-page criminal complaint filed in court Monday (June 22) in Charlotte, North Carolina, Sullivan plotted several domestic attacks hoping to kill 1,000 Americans and making a videotape of his exploits to send to ISIL (a.k.a. ISIS) leaders.

Authorities charged Sullivan with one count of attempting to provide material support to ISIL, one count of transporting and receiving a silencer in interstate commerce with intent to commit a felony and one count of receipt and possession of an unregistered silencer.

Chilling details

The criminal complaint gave chilling details of how the teen, who lived with his parents at their home in Rose Carswell Road, was planning to shoot people with cyanide-laced bullets and blow people up using a vehicle filled with bombs.

“As alleged in the complaint, the defendant was planning assassinations and violent attacks in the United States and is charged with attempting to provide material support to ISIL and federal firearms violations,” said Assistant Attorney General John P. Carlin. “[Our] highest priority is counter terrorism and we will continue to pursue justice against those who provide material support to designated foreign terrorist organisations.”

Sullivan, who is currently in federal custody, faces a total maximum sentence of 40 years for the charges and $510,000 in fines. The charge of conspiring to provide material support carries a maximum potential penalty of 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.

The charge for transporting and receiving the silencer carries a maximum potential penalty of 10 years in prison and a fine of $250,000 while its receipt and possession carries a maximum potential penalty of 10 years in prison and a fine of $10,000.

Assault rifle

According to the criminal complaint, the FBI became aware of Sullivan�€™s plans to obtain a semi-automatic AR-15 rifle at the Hickory Gun Show in Hickory on Saturday, which he planned to use to kill a large number of US citizens on behalf of ISIL. He planned to kill at the end of the month, according to federal documents.

It was the teen’s parents who tipped authorities that their son was up to something, calling 911 on April 21 after the young Sullivan started burning several household items, particularly religious articles.

After that episode, an FBI undercover agent made contact with Justin, who described himself as a Muslim convert and �€œmujahid,” or one engaged as a guerilla warrior in Jihad or holy war.

“Justin Sullivan intended to commit violent acts against innocent people in the US to support the terrorist organization ISIL,” said FBI Special Agent in Charge John A. Strong.

According to the affidavit, the teen asked the agent for a homemade silencer to use for practice assassinations before the big attack saying, “I’ll be doing shootings of my own before then … I’m excited.”

The undercover agent said he was invited by Sullivan on Juneņ to join the Islamic State of North America.

He also asked the agent to prove he was serious by killing people. He also talked about using biological weapons, including coating bullets with cyanide.

“1,000â€�Yes, I’m thinking about using biological weaponsâ€�coat our bullets with cyanide…and then set off a gas bomb to finish off the rest…it’s easy to make,” the affidavit says Sullivan told the agent.

�€˜Big attack’ sought

��Our attacks need to be as big as possible…we can do minor assassinations before the big attack for training,” Sullivan said to the agent, according to documents. He talked about using a moving van filled with explosives and detonating it.

During conversations with the undercover agent, Sullivan had asked the agent to kill his parents and offered to send money and his parents’ location to the agent, the affidavit said.

On June 12, Sullivan told the agent he needed the suppressor by the end of the week, which was Friday, the day he was arrested. The two talked about how the agent should mail the suppressor to Sullivan, with the agent asking for Sullivan’s address.

On June 17, FBI agents observed Sullivan going to a local library and reading the book, �The History of al Qaeda��.

The affidavit said the FBI built a functional silencer at Sullivan’s request, the affidavit said. The silencer does not bear the required serial number, and is not registered to Sullivan or any person in the National Firearms Registration and Transfer Record.

The FBI sent the silencer to the address Sullivan gave the agent and his mother picked up the package at the mailbox Friday afternoon.

Sullivan was at home at the time. Agents received consent from Sullivan’s mother and had a federal search warrant to search the home that day.

Silencer, cash found

Agents found the “silencer” hidden under plastic in a crawlspace that was accessible from the basement. They also found around $689 in Sullivan��s bedroom.

Sullivan was interviewed and talked about his discussions to help ISIL but said he didnâ��t mean it and didn’t plan to carry out what he had discussed, the affidavit said.

“Sullivan said he initiated the conversation with the (agent) about the planned terrorist attacks,” the affidavit said. â��Sullivan said he talked with the (agent) about doing attacks with a firearm at a bar or concert, places that were not very far away, and admitted that he had looked in the online yellow pages for places to attack.”

The affidavit also said Sullivan planned on conducting the attacks between Sunday and Tuesday, because his parents would be out of town.

On June 19, the FBI with the support of the Hickory, North Carolina Police Department, the Burke County, North Carolina Sheriffs Office and the North Carolina Highway Patrol, Sullivan did not resist when he was arrested at his home.

The case is being prosecuted by Assistant US Attorney and Senior Litigation Counsel Michael Savage and Trial Attorney Gregory Gonzalez of the National Security Division’s Counterterrorism section.

Dad speaks out

The local Morganton New Herald reported Tuesday that Rich Sullivan, who alerted authorities about his son’s unusual behaviour, did not regret his decision.

“It’s probably the hardest thing I ever had to do in my life, said Rich Sullivan told Sharon McBrayer in an interview outside his home on Tuesday. “But, deep down, I knew it was the right thing to do.”

The elder Sullivan is a retired US Marine captain, who served in the Marine Corps for 21 years. An American flag flies at his home 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

“When you take an oath, it�™s to defend against enemies foreign and domestic,” Rich Sullivan said. “I just didn’t know it would be that close to home.”

The retired Marine officer said his military training helped him make one of the hardest decisions of his life.

“You’re an American first and then a parent,” he said.

Record rainfall kills five in China as rivers overflow

Posted on 30 June 2015 by admin

Publication Date : 30-06-2015

 

Deadly downpours have been sweeping East China’s Jiangsu and Anhui provinces since Friday, with rivers and reservoirs swelled by flooding.

The flood control and drought relief headquarters of the two provinces have warned that many lakes and rivers, including Taihu Lake, Hongze Lake and Chuhe River, either risk exceeding warning levels or have already done so.

From Friday to Sunday, five people died in Changzhou, Jiangsu province, where 461 millimeters of rain fell over the weekend, the most in the country.

Two people were buried by a wall that collapsed in waist-deep water near Lihua Middle School. A man was buried by a collapsed house in Chunjiang township, another man was electrocuted and a 13-year-old boy was swept into a pond.

By Monday afternoon, more than 65,000 residents had been affected by the flood in Changzhou. Direct economic losses were estimated at 410 million yuan (US$66.1 million), 16,400 hectares of crops have been damaged and more than 10,000 people evacuated.

In the provincial capital, Nanjing, water of the Yuntaishan River in Jiangning district overflowed the embankment and submerged roads. The city sent nearly 1,600 soldiers and officials to build a 600-meter-long bridge and plug the gaps with sandbags.

The flood also caused the shutdown of the Lukou Airport expressways on Sunday. Nanjing’s ancient city wall, built during the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644), has been releasing water through its inbuilt drainage system, with the rain forming a sight locals call “dragon spurting water”.

According to the Nanjing Weather Observatory Station, the city’s rainfall in June has reached 625.5 mm, exceeding the record of 618.8 mm in July 1931. The city gets on average 1,000 mm of rain a year.

Many villages have been submerged by at least 1.5 meters of water and had to be evacuated by soldiers with lifeboats.

Zhou Yuan, who lives near Qingshuiting West Street, said his community had no electricity and water over the weekend. “A neighbour who was nine months pregnant had to climb down the stairs from the 26th floor after the elevator shut down,” Zhou said. “The government of the economic development district arranged temporary accommodation and food for the evacuated.”
