“What you appear to have here is a lone actor and they are obviously particularly hard to detect,” said Jonathan Hall, the Independent Reviewer of Terrorism Legislation, whose job is to inform public debate on security laws.”If, as has been reported, the individual is suffering from poor mental health that is a particularly difficult area,” he added.When asked about the reports of the assailant being already on authorities’ radar, Britain’s Security Minister James Brokenshire said the government did not comment on intelligence matters.Teacher James Furlong, 36, is the only victim to have been named so far. “James was a wonderful man. He was beautiful, intelligent, honest and fun,” his parents said in a statement.The attack was reminiscent of some recent incidents in Britain that authorities also considered to be terrorism.In February, police shot dead a man, previously jailed for promoting violent Islamist material, who had stabbed two people on a busy street in south London. Last November, another man who had been jailed for terrorism offences stabbed two people to death on London Bridge before he too was shot dead by police. Topics : A Western security source, speaking on condition of anonymity, told Reuters that the arrested man was a 25-year-old Libyan called Khairi Saadallah. Police have not named the suspect though they confirmed the arrest of a 25-year-old man.The security source said Saadallah had come across the radar of Britain’s domestic security agency MI5 last year over intelligence he had aspirations to travel for extremist purposes, although his plans then came to nothing.Reading, which is about 40 miles (65 km) west of London, said a minute’s silence would be held at 0900 GMT.”Lone actor” Mourners were to hold a minute’s silence in the English town of Reading on Monday for the victims of a stabbing that killed three people in the latest attack authorities attributed to terrorism.Three people were also injured when a man wielding a five-inch knife went on the rampage on Saturday in a park in the southern town, stabbing people at random who were enjoying a sunny, summer evening.Describing the incident as an atrocity and terrorism, police say they have detained one man and are not hunting others.
GUYANA’S One Star boxing referee/judge Romona Agard created history recently by becoming the first Guyanese referee/judge to be selected to officiate in the South American Youth Championships which is scheduled for Chile during the month of September.Agard was notified of the accomplishment by way of a letter from the America’s Boxing Confederation (AMBC).The experienced official said she is elated to be recognised by the AMBC who has recognised the hard work she has been doing over the years.She also extended gratitude to her husband Menard Wilson (also a referee), as well as Guyana Boxing Associations president Steve Ninvalle and other executives of the GBA for their support.Agard, the chairperson of the GBA’s Referee/Judge Commission, gained her One Star badge last December following success at examinations in Barbados after the GBA paved the way for her and Richard Braithwaite to attend courses there.
It is one of the most gut-wrenching and disappointing sights in baseball: watching the other team celebrate a walk-off victory.Eight weeks ago, the USC baseball team watched Long Beach State celebrate a walk-off win on a frigid Tuesday night in Long Beach. Today, the Trojans (18-21) have a chance to return the favor as they host the Dirtbags (19-18) at 6 p.m.Bounce back · With junior pitcher Ben Mount’s move to the closer role, freshman pitcher Kyle Richter will be called upon to make his third career start. Richter will look to get the Trojans back on track after they suffered an 8-2 defeat at Washington on Sunday. – Carlo Acenas | Daily Trojan “[Long Beach’s] game-winning single was hit to me,” said junior right fielder Alex Sherrod. “I had a chance to throw the guy out and I bobbled it. You try to release the mental brick, but personally, I’m still hanging on to that. You try to put your losses behind you, but I’m still thinking about it.”When the Trojans last faced Long Beach, they scored two runs in the seventh to even the game at four and threatened to take the lead in the ninth. It was the Dirtbags, however, who came through with an RBI-single in the bottom of the ninth off junior closer Chad Smith to walk away with a 5-4 win.Junior pitcher Ben Mount started that game and gave the Trojan’s five innings of one-run ball. But with Smith out for the season with an elbow injury, USC interim coach Frank Cruz is trusting Mount to fill the closer’s role.The righty is third on the team with a 2.89 ERA and has allowed just one run in his last eight and one-third innings of work.“Mount has a lot of confidence right now,” Cruz said. “He’s keeping the ball down well. Most importantly, he’s just throwing strikes.”Mount’s move to closer means freshman Kyle Richter will make his third career start today.The young lefty has electric stuff, as opponents are hitting just .216 against him. But he has struggled throwing strikes, issuing 13 free passes hitting two batters in 19 and two-third innings of work.Against Loyola Marymount last Tuesday, however, Richter started the Trojans off with two perfect innings before being removed to save his arm for the weekend.“That won’t happen this week,” Cruz said. “We’ve got an extra day’s rest, so we’ll let Richter go a little more.”Last weekend, the Trojans played Washington in a Thursday through Saturday series instead of the traditional Friday through Sunday to avoid playing on Easter, meaning the team only had Wednesday off.This weekend the Trojans are back to the classic scheduling, giving them the usual two days of rest.USC took two of three from the Huskies this weekend to notch its third-consecutive Pac-10 series win, but dropped the final game of the series for just the second time this season in Pac-10 play.Although the series victory is important, losing the final game leaves the team and Cruz with what the first-year coach calls a “sour taste.”“It was a good series,” Sherrod said. “But obviously you want to complete the sweep when you have the chance.”Although the Trojans cannot sweep the Dirtbags, they have a chance for something almost as special: revenge.But Cruz, Sherrod and the rest of the team know that they can’t get too caught up in that.“Obviously you want to get them back,” Cruz said. “But it’s not so much about exacting revenge as it is about us just getting back on the winning track.”First pitch is at 6 p.m. at Dedeaux Field.
Nenagh Ormond, who started the day in 4th place, defeated Queens 38-25 in Belfast.They scored six tries – Derek Corcoran (2), Lemeki Vaipulu, Fergal Brislane, Mike Fogarty and Peter O’Connor all crossed the line for the victors.Cashel beat Skerries 31-14 at Spafield. They trailed by two points at the break but a strong second-half showing earned them the victory over the Dublin side. Ed Leamy scored two tries for Cashel, Kevin Leamy and Danny Lambe one each as well as being awarded a penalty try.Pat O’Connor kicked three conversions.
Jasmina Tinjić, who plays for a prize fund of 50.000 dollars, opened the tournament in Quanzhou, in China with the results 2:1, per sets (6:7, 6:3, 6:4).The best B&H female tennis player won against the local tennis player Ran Tian, who is 818 in the WTA list. According to Jasmina, the process of adaption with the time difference was difficult.“Now that I am adapting with the zone changes, I believe that I will be more confident in the upcoming matches. Weather conditions for the game were not ideal. It was very windy, but I managed to win the game despite losing in the first set. I believe that I will play much better in the second round, but the goal remains the same, at least semi-finals”, said Tinjić, who will play the next match on Wednesday morning.(Source: Klix.ba)
