She began speaking with police about the accusation in late October.Her lawyer, Carrie Goldberg, said that by now she expected the case would at least have gone before a grand jury, which would decide whether or not to indict Weinstein.“We are deeply concerned about the foot-dragging in convening the grand jury,” Goldberg said in an email.Weinstein’s attorneys have said he denies any claim of non-consensual sex, and that they would respond in any “appropriate legal forum, where necessary.” They had no comment on Friday.New York City authorities initially seemed poised to move quickly on the accusations. In late October, Chief of Detectives Robert Boyce said investigators found de la Huerta’s account believable.Since then, police and prosecutors have travelled to Paris to interview de la Huerta and have spoken to other witnesses multiple times, two law enforcement officials said. The officials weren’t authorized to speak publicly and spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity.Prosecutors have also met with Weinstein’s lawyers, Goldberg’s office said.A spokeswoman for Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. she could not comment because of the ongoing investigation.The prosecutor’s office has investigated Weinstein before, only to eventually back off of filing a criminal charge. In 2015, police conducted a sting after an Italian model accused Weinstein of groping her, secretly recording Weinstein apologizing for this conduct.Vance ultimately decided there wasn’t enough proof and didn’t bring a case. Following criticism over the decision earlier this year, prosecutors said police arranged the sting without their knowledge and there were other proof issues, but police pushed back saying they’d presented enough evidence.Goldberg said she wonders why prosecutors are putting her client through so much scrutiny.“It exacts a huge emotional toll,” she said. “She has to rehash these memories and subject herself to exposure, and for what?”She added: “We’ve already said we’re prepared for whatever the trial may bring.”At least 75 women have come forward in the media to detail accounts of assault, harassment and inappropriate conduct by Weinstein. It’s not clear how many have gone to police.The Associated Press does not typically identify people who say they are victims of sexual assault unless they speak publicly, which de la Huerta has done.

He is followed by his son William and William’s three young children: Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis. Next comes the new baby’s father, Prince Harry, and then the newborn boy.___WILL THE BABY AT LEAST BE A PRINCE?This won’t happen automatically. It’s really up to the queen to decide, although Harry and Meghan may also have a say.A decree issued by King George V in 1917 limits the number of grand royal titles in a way that would make Harry and Meghan’s son known as a “Lord” rather than as a prince. He wouldn’t become “his royal highness” under the current rules.The queen has the authority, however, to intervene as she did when William and his wife Kate started having children. The queen decreed that all of their children would be princes and princesses.She could do the same for Harry and Meghan’s offspring, but the queen’s feelings on that subject haven’t been made public.It is also possible that Harry and Meghan could decide they don’t want the special designation for the baby, in order to give their child a more normal upbringing.___WHAT WILL THEY NAME THE BABY?Royals tend to take their time about naming a baby.Prince Harry, in making the announcement, said the couple hasn’t decided on a name yet.But there has been speculation that the newborn would be named Albert, Arthur or James.___WILL THE BABY BE AMERICAN?Meghan is American, but palace officials said at the time of her engagement to Harry that she planned to eventually become British, a process that can take several years.She and Harry could decide to pursue American citizenship for their baby, so their boy could end up having dual U.K.-U.S. nationality. That would give their son the right to live and work in the United States without needing a visa— and spare him the lengthy entry procedures that often face foreign visitors arriving at U.S. airports.Meghan hasn’t indicated whether she plans to give up her American status once she has British nationality, a decision that could have an impact on her tax liabilities but something she is not forced to do by British or American law.___WHEN WILL WE SEE A PHOTO OF THE BABY?Harry has resented the often-intrusive coverage of the royals by the British press and he and Meghan have toned down expectations for what information will be released about the new baby.Before the birth, the couple indicated they won’t immediately pose with their newborn hours after the baby has arrived, as William and Kate have done with their children.They have indicated it will be several days before they show the baby to the world, and there has been speculation that they will do so first using their new Instagram account.___DOES THE BABY HAVE RED HAIR?It’s too early to tell, as the colour of a baby’s hair changes with time.Harry is one of the most famous redheads in the world — “a ginger” in British lingo.The baby boy’s hair colour comes down to genetics. Harry handed down a redhead gene to his baby, but it is not known if Meghan has a recessive redhead gene. If she does, there’s a 50-per cent chance the baby will have red hair.Gregory Katz, The Associated Press by Gregory Katz, The Associated Press Posted May 6, 2019 7:26 am PDTcenter_img And baby makes 3: Prince Harry, Meghan and baby boylast_img read more

Around 6000 people to be helped by benefit reforms

first_imgAround 6,000 people will benefit from the increase of €4.2m in the budget allocated for the provision of aid to persons with disabilities and chronic illnesses that was approved on Wednesday by the council of ministers, labour minister Zeta Emilianidou said on Thursday.The annual budget rise will see a 30 per cent increase in the current budget of the department for social inclusion for persons with disabilities, Emilianidou said.The measures include the raising of the monthly benefit received by 750 quadriplegic persons from €854,30 to €900, while those quadriplegics who have additional needs due to life-threatening health-related complications from their disability will be entitled an allowance of €1,100 per month.The monthly benefit received by 950 paraplegic persons will also rise from €350 to €400, while those with additional healthcare needs would receive a monthly allowance of €500.A further 2,300 people with quadriplegia, paraplegia, other motor disabilities, visual disabilities, nephropathy or thalassemia who are currently receiving or are in the process of receiving a monthly mobility allowance will see an increase from €102 to €150 or from €51 to €75 once an amendment to the relevant legislation is passed.The ministers also approved the provision of a €75 mobility allowance to 1,900 blind persons who were until now not entitled to an allowance as they were unemployed or were not students. The monthly allowance will be granted regardless of these factors once the relevant legislation is amended.The department for social inclusion for persons with disabilities will handle all adjustments without requiring any action from the part of the beneficiaries, who will receive their increased allowance in their bank account as was previously the case.Only those paraplegic and quadriplegic persons who are entitled to a higher allowance due to additional healthcare needs will be required to submit the relevant application to the department which will evaluate and certify their needs.Emilianidou also noted that in view of encouraging persons with chronic illnesses to enter the labour market, the council of ministers also approved the re-launching of the incentive scheme for the recruitment of people with chronic disease.The total budget for the project, funded by the European Social Cohesion Fund is €2m, and will provide for the recruitment of 100 unemployed chronic patients. The project will be launched on May 20 by the labour department.According to the head of the Pancyprian organisation of the blind, Christakis Nicolaides, the scheme for the recruitment of persons with disabilities that is already in place, which offers to cover 75 per cent of the wage and social insurance costs of a disabled employee, has so far led to the employment of 85 persons and is able to support the employment of 20 more.According to Emilianidou, the department for social inclusion for persons with disabilities launched on Monday a public tender for the construction of 10 new residences island-wide, as well as for the provision of assisted living services, mainly for persons with mental disabilities and autism who do not enjoy adequate family support.Another important decision taken by the council of ministers, Emilianidou noted, was the approval of a revised proposal tabled by the labour ministry, which seeks the establishment of a centre for family intervention and support for autistic children, which will provide additional psychosocial support services to the child and its family, as well as preparatory educational services to pre-school autistic children.You May LikeSUVs | Search AdsThese SUVs Will Take Your Breath Away.

Krepon argued. The defiance of the Gandhis will continue to grow unless they bring a turnaround in the electoral fortunes of the Congress.As such the Congress has been moribund in several electorally-crucial states Defeat in other less significant states dashes the hope of Congress leaders that the Gandhis can help the party to stage a comeback Regional leaders in the Congress therefore have little incentives in remaining loyal to the Gandhis They feel they can better embody the Congress ideology in their personalities and enhance their power on their own Mamata Banerjee has demonstrated this in West Bengal as has Himanta Biswa Sarma in Assam albeit by switching to the BJP Sharad Pawar has illustrated this partially in Maharashtra Ajit Jogi and perhaps even Bhupinder Singh Hooda think they can do this in Chhattisgarh and Haryana respectively The defeat of the Congress in the 2014 Lok Sabha and a clutch of state Assembly elections thereafter has sped up the breakdown of the dynastic arrangement that the Congress under Indira Gandhi had put in place Under it a Gandhi is to lead the Congress and become prime minister in case the party wins the Lok Sabha election Sonia Gandhi is the only exception to this rule PV Narasimha Rao became prime minister because no Gandhi was in active politics then The political families in the states are allowed carve out their pockets of influence their little fiefdoms so to speak They are given ample leeway to field their relatives or candidates of their own choice in the electoral fray subject to the formal approval of the high command On the death of the local dynast one of his or her children usually inherits his or her constituency This dynastic arrangement is symbiotic — because of the charisma of the Gandhis the state-based dynasts are empowered In turn they organise the machinery to mobilise people and their votes for the Congress They also accept the right of the Gandhi leading the Congress to decide who among them is to become the chief minister But this dynastic arrangement has come under crisis because the Gandhis have lost their earlier dominance and therefore the power to impose their will on the ‘little dynasts’ Thus whenever the Gandhis seek to impose their will on them the more ambitious among them don’t hesitate to rebel They often invoke the dynastic principles not ideology to justify their rebellion Take the example of YS Rajasekhara Reddy in Andhra Pradesh Not only did he vanquish N Chandrababu Naidu he ensured a rich harvest of seats for the Congress in the 2004 Lok Sabha elections that enabled it to unexpectedly return to power at the Centre He repeated the feat in the 2009 elections as well His death in a plane crash in 2009 prompted Rajasekhara’s son Jagan Mohan to demand he succeed his father The Gandhis blanched at his demand — how could a regional political family make such a demand on the Gandhis After all it is their right to choose who rules the Congress-ruled states But Jagan Mohan Reddy’s argument was that if the Gandhis could invoke the dynastic principle to preside over the Congress why couldn’t he over Andhra Pradesh The Congress refused to acquiesce and paid a heavy price for it in 2014 The Gandhis can’t but accept the demand of regional leaders or else they must countenance rebellion This is because the Gandhis of today unlike Indira Gandhi can’t guarantee victory to their regional satraps who believe they have a better chance to succeed without the interference from the family This is the reason why Mamata Banerjee established her own party reposing more faith in her ability rather than relying on the Gandhis to dislodge the Left She is now grooming her nephew for politics You can’t push Sharad Pawar around unless you have it in you to weaken him on his home turf He has his own party which one from his family will inherit But the logic of dynastic rule cuts the other way round too Once the Gandhis throw their weight behind a regional leader they accept others to accept the decision Rahul Gandhi backed Tarun Gogoi triggering the departure of Sarma who was in a way opposing the extension of hereditary rule to Assam Rahul Gandhi had brought Gogoi’s son Gaurav into politics and given him the ticket to fight the 2014 Lok Sabha election Sarma feared his chance of becoming chief minister was now remote – the baton from Tarun would be eventually passed to Gaurav Sarma was sagacious enough to figure out that a weak high command couldn’t possibly disallow Tarun from anointing Gaurav as his successor It could undermine the very legitimacy of Rahul’s leadership based as it also is on the hereditary principle Sarma’s departure had disastrous consequences for the Congress in the recent Assembly election The Gandhis expect loyalty from those whom they back in the states But regional satraps now think this endorsement is the compulsion of the Gandhis who can’t win the states for the party on their own They therefore feel offended whenever Sonia or Rahul seek to impose decisions on them that are not to their liking Call it a case of the Gandhis spoiling the regional chieftains Jogi perhaps became too accustomed to having his way to tolerate interference from the Congress high command bruised and battered now In addition Jogi has a son to bequeath his political legacy Under the dynastic system of the Congress it makes sense for Jogi to float his own party Former Uttarakhand chief minister Vijay Bahuguna smarted under the humiliation of having been deposed for mishandling the floods in Uttarakhand As the eldest son of Congress veteran HN Bahuguna he must have grown with a sense of entitlement His logic to leave the Congress must have been thus — if Rahul can’t be asked to step down despite the many defeats he has suffered how can a Bahuguna be removed from the chief ministership No doubt the Gandhi must be feeling let down at Hooda’s rebellion — which has yet to become a full-fledged one After all they supported him right through his two tenures as chief minister Hooda however thinks he has built his own support base and anyway he can’t blindly hitch his future to the Gandhis whose clout is rapidly diminishing Hooda must protect his interests So if the Congress is unravelling it is because the dynastic arrangement has begun to come apart The glue holding the party together is undeniably the Gandhis But the adhesiveness of the glue depends on whether or not the Gandhis can script victories for the party Until then the dynastic arrangement of the Congress will continue to disintegrate regardless of pundits claiming that the party won more seats than the BJP in the recent Assembly elections Worse at every regional satrap’s rebellion it will become even more difficult for Rahul to discover the winning touch Even Rahul will admit that he isn’t interested in increasing the number of Congress MLAs as he is in counting the states in whichhis party in power This is because only through acquisition of power can he keep the dynastic arrangement of the Congress intact The authoris a journalist in Delhi His novel The Hour Before Dawn has as its backdrop the demolition of the Babri Masjid It is available in bookstores Vadodara:The union minister of state for social justice and empowerment Ramdas Athawale said that the BJP would retain power in Gujarat despite the aggressive campaign of the opposition Congress Speaking to reporters in Vadodara Athawale said that the percentage of votes for the Congress will definitely go up thanks to its campaign as well as the backing of the Patidar Anamat Andolan Samiti (PAAS) File image of Ramdas Athawale Firstpost Athawale said that prime minister Narendra Modi was a great strategist ably supported by BJP party president Amit Shah and both being sons-of-the-soil of Gujarat were aware of the ground situation in the state He questioned the decision of PAAS leader Hardik Patel to align with the Congress "What was Hardik Patel’s logic behind supporting the opposition Congress party which will sit in opposition even after the polls If Patel had approached me I would have resolved the Patel reservation issue by taking it up with PM Modi" Athawale said He reiterated that the ceiling for reservations in jobs should go up from the present 495 percent to 75 percent on the basis of economic criteria and added that upper castes should also be beneficiaries of it He demanded an amendment in the Constitution to accommodate 25 percent reservation for job for upper castes "Only 25 percent of the total jobs should be left for general category who will get jobs through competitions" he said Athawale however added "This should not disturb the existing reservation system benefitting the Scheduled Castes (SC) Scheduled Tribes (ST) and the Other Backward Classes (OBCs)" He lauded the leadership of PM Modi who he said believed in development for all without caste discrimination unlike the Congress which he said wanted to divide the country on the basis of caste Written by Shashank Joshi | Updated: June 23 2015 6:28 am They allow a state to craft its signals carefully India should take a leaf from China’s book Related News One of the perennial problems of international relations is how to assess what an adversary will do next Do you look at past behaviour the types of weapons they’re buying their leaders or something else We have a reasonable idea of China’s order of battle — its ships missiles and satellites But American satellites can’t tell us what China plans to do with these So what does one do when a rival simply declares its plans and publishes them on its website — dismiss it as artful misdirection or accept the threats and assurances at face value Last month China published the latest in its series of defence white papers on military strategy given added piquancy by tensions in the South China Sea Beijing has perfected the subtle combination of tedium platitude and self-assurance that is the hallmark of all such documents One finds the usual affirmations of international bonhomie half-baked sociology and the earnest repudiation of “power politics” Beneath the bromides however are important messages The white paper sets out a broader more assured and active view of China’s place in the world It acknowledges “the growth of China’s national interests” naming “overseas interests” — energy sea-lane security and Chinese personnel abroad — as an “imminent issue” Indeed as China scholar Andrew Erickson notes this is the first time a Chinese defence white paper has omitted mention of the Five Principles of Peaceful Coexistence the Panchsheel forged in the prelapsarian days of Sino-Indian friendship perhaps suggesting that cracks are appearing in the doctrine of non-interference Equally important the white paper declares an unabashed turn to the sea conceding that “the traditional mentality that land outweighs sea must be abandoned” and promising that the PLA’s so-called “preparation for military struggle” will now be focused on “maritime military struggle” Taken with farther-flung interests this translates into a commitment to shift from “offshore waters defence” to “open seas protection” — in other words power projection well away from China’s shores Nothing here will shock China-watchers China’s growing concerns about energy security have been obvious in its diplomacy with Pakistan and the development of alternative overland routes China’s maritime turn is equally plain evident in long-range anti-piracy missions and a rapidly modernising fleet with a second aircraft carrier confirmed three months ago But the paper’s significance lies in the fact that China’s leadership rather than playing down its strength emphasising local and traditional missions as well as assuaging other Asian powers is baldly embracing the notion of a China that is both able and willing to throw its weight around — and doing so at a time of heightened tensions in the South China Sea The paper gives us confidence that present trends in China’s defence procurement and posture will continue India goes unmentioned in the paper reflecting its marginal role in Chinese defence thinking but there are nevertheless a few important lessons The first is that it cannot assume China will be tied down in local waters for years to come While China is honing its so-called anti-access area denial (A2/AD) capabilities to deter US intervention it will at the same time accelerate its forays into those “open seas” The appearance of Chinese submarines in Sri Lanka last year their months-long deployments to the Gulf of Aden and China’s discussions with Djibouti over a permanent base are indications of what will be a long-term challenge in the Indian Ocean one with the potential to constrain India’s own power projection If Indian anti-submarine warfare capabilities don’t advance this could be a crippling weakness Second China is demonstrating that it understands the changing demands of modern warfare Two things stand out One is the emphasis on jointness which refers to how well different branches of the military can work in concert While it would be foolish to take Chinese professions of reform at face value it is clear India is not doing enough in this regard The other is the focus on “informatisation” of war which refers to the way in which battlefield information flows through a military and is denied to an enemy It would be wrong to suggest that India has made no progress here but its public debate on military affairs tends to focus on bean-counting (the number of fighter squadrons) at the expense of the technology that fuses these together Third white papers matter They allow a state to craft its signals carefully rather than have them trickle out in ad hoc briefings or sporadic bilateral communiqués For instance India’s Act East policy has emerged piecemeal in separate joint statements with the US Japan Australia and others Collecting and cohering these messages can bring clarity for friends and adversaries alike My understanding is that the ministry of external affairs is indeed preparing a white paper on foreign policy to be released at the end of this year This will be a significant moment in India’s recent foreign policy It would be even better if the ministry of defence followed suit The writer is senior research

consensus Every now and then there is a new announcement that a comprehensive bill is round the corner In the meantimefoodgrain rots and hunger remains unabated Uncertainty surrounds even the existing unsatisfactory arrangements Sowhat are the key issues that need to be resolved First and foremostthe scope of the bill Should this only cover those who are below poverty line (BPL) or should it also cover the above poverty line (APL) families After allthe right to food is the universal right of every citizen It is true that those who are BPLwho are on the edge of hungermust be our overriding priority But how can we call something a right if everyone does not have it Secondwhat is the methodology which should be used to define BPL Should this only be based on minimum calorific intake without regard to nutritional efficiencies It is well-recognised that unless the entitlement covers clean drinking watersanitationhygiene and primary healthcarealong with deficiencies of micro nutrientsthe absorptive capacity for food would be seriously compromised So the question iswhat do we want to achieve from the Food Security Bill After allit must enable every childwoman and man to have an opportunity for a healthy and productive life beyond mere access to calories required for existence Thereforethe food security legislation should aim at overcoming the challenges of food security without losing sight of the broad definition and components of food security that have come to be accepted across the world The interrelation between food and social security cannot be ignored and any effort of guaranteeing one without the rest will render food security ineffective Thirdeven in the traditional sense in which poverty has been imperfectly definedthere are widely varying estimates of the number of poor people As far as the number of BPL families are concernedthe Wadhwa committee estimates the number to be 20 crorethe state governments estimate the number as 105 crorethe Tendulkar committee put it as 95 croreArjun Sengupta committee 20 croreNC Saxena 125 crore and the Planning Commission puts the figure at 7 crore Recentlyof coursethe Planning Commission is inclined to accept the Tendulkar committee report which is half of the number suggested by the Wadhwa committee and is slightly below the state government estimates Of coursethe financial implications vary dramatically from Rs 82000 crore under the Wadhwa committee to Rs 18000 crore under the Tendulkar committeeover and above the present allocations for subsidies Until recentlypoverty was estimated in India by measuring calorie intakethough the Tendulkar committee moved away from that to a broader definition Methodology for the computation of poverty needs to be restructured by taking into account the new multi-dimensional approach of estimating poverty Fourthrelated to the above is the issue of whether the entitlement should be 25 kg or 35 kg of foodgrain a month There could also be a differentiated approach in which only those in the BPL category receive 35 kgothers like APL families receive the lower entitlement of 25 kg only Priceno doubteveryone has assumedshould be Rs 3 per kg Fiftha major unresolved issue is the distribution modality since the bill will entail a massive increase in the quantum of foodgrain Reliance on the public distribution system alone may prove inadequate Everyone is familiar with the inherent leakages in the existing PDS in terms of quality of foodgrainbogus ration cardshoardingprofiteering and multiple ways of denying food to the powerless and disadvantaged Of courseif the current PDS is to be continuedit will also entail enormous problems of food procurementstoragetransportation and all the other attendant evils we are fully familiar with So should we not think of more innovative ways of administering food subsidy Two types of schemes are being increasingly mentioned The first is a coupon system in which the intended beneficiary receives a food coupon which carries money value and gives him the option to buy foodgrain from any shop which gives him satisfaction This creates competition between different outlets and will certainly improve the quality and enlarge consumer choiceminimise misuse and improve productivity There is the second approachthat isdirect cash transfer by opening a bank account in the name of the intended beneficiary and transferring the money directly to the bank account Countries like Brazilwhich have experimented with conditional cash transferhave achieved success in administering such schemes more efficiently Sixthproduction and livelihood of food producersfrom the household to the national levelconstitute the core element of food security You cannot provide food to people if you do not first ensure that food is produced in adequate quantities And to ensure adequate food productionthe livelihood of food producers must be ensured With continuing high growth in population and the stagnant area under foodgrain productionthe right to food can only be ensured with a sustained growth in productivity levelsincreased food procurement and by containing

the worst bloodshed of its kind in Egypt’s modern history – highlighted the threat militant groups pose in the most populous Arab country After four years of battling Islamic State in the Sinai where the group has killed hundreds of soldiers and police authorities still face an enemy with growing ambitions in Egypt despite its defeats in Iraq Syria and Libya Carrying the black flag of Islamic State the assailants arrived in off-road vehicles before opening fire on the cream-coloured Al Rawdah mosque in Bir al-Abed leaving its carpets stained with blood officials and witnesses said People scrambled to escape as gunmen opened fire at worshippers including dozens of children By the time the shooting stopped many of the village’s men were lifeless No group has claimed responsibility ATTACK RATTLES EGYPTIANS Egyptians were stunned because the attack was directed at a mosque – a rarity in the country’s history of Islamist insurgencies The possibility that ultra-hardline Islamists are shifting tactics and picking new targets is worrying for Egypt where governments have struggled to contain groups far less brazen than Islamic State Egyptian leaders have adopted a zero-tolerance policy with air strikes raids on militant hideouts and long prison sentences President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi has once again threatened to crush the militants “The armed forces and the police will avenge our martyrs and restore security and stability with the utmost force in the coming period” he said after Friday’s carnage Sisi has called for a comprehensive campaign to counter what he describes as the existential threat of radical jihadism deploying moderate clerics to promote moderate Islam for instance He is expected to run for a second term early next year Even with a convincing win he will face pressure to deliver on promises of stability especially if attacks like that on Al Rawdah persist For Islamic State the village was a target because of its ties to Sufism a mystical form of Islam that hardline Islamist groups consider heretical Some villagers recalled how these threats were made about a year ago in an Islamic State internet publication In a December 2016 issue of al-Nabaa one of the group’s religious leaders left little doubt that Sufis would be targeted It mentioned Al Rawdah directly “Our primary focus lies in the war against polytheism and apostasy and of those Sufism sorcery and divination” he said More threats were made in early 2017 SUFIS CONDEMNED FOR BELIEFS In March Islamic State’s branch in the Sinai posted a video of its religious police forcing a group of Sufis to renounce their beliefs under threat of death It showed what it said were militants beheading two elderly Sufi men in the desert after they were found guilty of witchcraft and sorcery Egypt has about 15 million Sufis and their shrines and saints appear in villages across the country Ultra-conservative Salafists abhor Sufi practices and some have in the past threatened to smash their symbols with hammers and iron bars Five police and army sources said there was no recent specific threat against Sufis in Al Rawdah Friday’s attack began in the early afternoon The mosque’s imam said he had just stepped onto the podium for his sermon when gunfire erupted and worshippers struggled to escape “I found people piled on top of each other and they kept firing at anyone” imam Mohamed Abdel Fattah told Reuters from his hospital bed in Sharqiya city “They fired at anyone who breathed” Ramadan Salama 26 said all he remembers before ending up in hospital was

police in the Western desert far from northern Sinai Security sources said dozens of police officers and conscripts were killed The government said 16 police and conscripts died Security sources said the heavy weapons and tactics employed indicated ties to Islamic State or more likely an al Qaeda brigade led by Hesham al-Ashmawy a former Egyptian special forces officer turned jihadist For now
