ISLAMIC FASHION FAST BECOMING LUCRATIVE BUSINESS, SAYS ROSMAH

KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 10 (Bernama) -- Islamic fashion is fast becoming a lucrative business with the current market estimated to be worth more than US$96 billion (RM302 billion) a year, said Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor.

Rosmah, wife of Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak, said it was an enormous market that had yet to be fully tapped.

"The global Muslim population comprises one of the fastest-growing consumer markets in the world, hence representing a major growth opportunity for businesses around the globe, including in the fashion sector," she said at the opening of the Malaysian-inspired festival, the Islamic Fashion Festival (IFF) Gala Dinner and Fashion Show, at the Monaco Sporting Club in Monte Carlo Monday night. The text of her speech was released here.

The event was attended also by, among others, Prince Albert II of Monaco, Qatar Prime Minister Sheikh Hamad Bin Jassim Bin Jabr Al-Thani, Najib and Sarawak Chief Minister Tan Sri Abdul Taib Mahmud.

Rosmah said that according to the prestigious Dubai French Fashion University Esmod, over half of the world’s 1.6 billion Muslim population is spending a substantial part of their annual income on fashion and accessories.

"This recent interest in Muslim fashion signals the changing dynamics of the ever-increasing interaction among Eastern and Western cultures. Nowadays, Muslim women can choose from a broad selection of designs to create a look that matches their values, traditions and tastes, without compromising any of the three," said Rosmah.

She said that thus "the fashion players would do well to plan ahead so as not to miss the proverbial boat in capturing this lucrative segment of fashion".

Rosmah said major clothing retailers had been busy highlighting how top brands like Anne Klein and Ralph Lauren were already producing fashion lines that met the Islamic requirement of full coverage.

"In the same vein, it is interesting to note that even as the great 'veil' debate raged in France, the country, being the fashion capital of the world, remains as one of the world’s major exporters for Muslim couture 'abayas' and 'niqabs'.

"Clearly, politics notwithstanding, those in the fashion business are increasingly aware of the burgeoning demand for Muslim apparel worldwide," she said.

Rosmah said she hoped that Monaco could emerge as one of the gateways to the European market for Islamic-inspired fashion from Malaysia and the rest of Asia.

On IFF, she said its main mission was to capitalise on fashion as a platform to bring together designers and fashion enthusiasts of different cultures, religious backgrounds and race to bring Islamic Couture into the mainstream of style and fashion.

Since it was started in 2006, IFF has spread its wings to Jakarta, Dubai, Abu Dhabi and New York, featuring the works of more than 200 designers, and had showcased a varied choice of styles and looks for Muslim-dressing, decidedly different from the stereotypical impressions of Islamic apparel held by many.

"The Islamic Fashion Festival is precisely intended to end the myth that a Muslim woman cannot posses a sense of style. On the contrary, Islamic dressing is a style of its own, and today it is beginning to attract more and more attention, as mainstream trends become increasingly bold, sensual and provocative which is unappealing to the more conservative consumers," she said.

In fact, in affirming the coming-of-age of Muslim fashion through the impressive collections, Islamic fashion is now considered as the breath of fresh air in a global culture, she said. - Bernama

Rosmah: IFF mampu rapatkan jurang negara Islam-Barat

MONTE CARLO 10 Ogos - Penganjuran Festival Fesyen Islamik (IFF) mampu membantu merapatkan jurang antara negara Islam dan Barat kerana ia secara tidak langsung dapat memberi kefahaman kepada masyarakat dunia terhadap keindahan budaya Islam.
Isteri Perdana Menteri, Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor berkata, sehubungan itu penjelajahan merentas dunia untuk mempromosikan busana Muslim mampu mengubah persepsi terhadap dunia Islam, memberi inspirasi di samping memperkukuhkan ikatan antara negara.
"Salah satu objektif terbesar IFF adalah menyatukan budaya dan negara untuk memberitahu bahawa melalui fesyen kita merangsang pemahaman dan rasa hormat antara masyarakat yang berbeza agama dan kepercayaan.
"Saya berbangga kerana IFF telah berjaya sampai sebegini jauh untuk mempromosikan busana Islam dan mendapat maklum balas daripada pelbagai latar belakang dan agama di samping memperkukuhkan industri fesyen tersebut ke peringkat lebih tinggi," katanya.
Beliau berucap pada majlis malam gala amal dan pertunjukan fesyen IFF di The Monte Carlo Sporting Club dekat sini malam semalam.
Antara pereka fesyen yang terlibat termasuk Datuk Tom Abang Saufi dari Malaysia dan Ghea Panggabean dari Indonesia.
Pada majlis tersebut sejumlah RM789,600 (188,000 euro) berjaya dikumpul menerusi lelongan tiga barangan termasuk foto Putera Monaco, Putera Albert II ketika mengunjungi Sarawak pada dua tahun lalu.
Kutipan itu akan disumbangkan kepada Yayasan Putera Albert II bagi membantu pemuliharaan alam sekitar.
Hadir sama ialah Perdana Menteri, Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak; Putera Monaco, Putera Albert II; Perdana Menteri Qatar dan isteri, Sheikh Hamad Al-Thani dan Sheikha Noora Abdul Aziz Al Hubaien; Ketua Menteri Sarawak, Tan Sri Abdul Taib Mahmud serta pengasas dan pengerusi IFF, Datuk Raja Rezza Shah.
Penganjuran IFF kali ini melakar sejarah tersendiri apabila buat pertama kali dianjurkan di Eropah.
IFF mula diperkenalkan pada 2006 dan sudah memasuki edisi keempat dengan objektif memartabatkan fesyen Islam di mata dunia.
Rosmah yang juga penaung IFF berkata, sebagai perintis dalam menggerakkan fesyen Islam, Malaysia harus mengambil peluang jurang dalam pasaran busana Muslim yang luas memandangkan ia bukan sahaja sesuai dipakai Muslimah tetapi wanita keseluruhannya.

Lebih-lebih lagi, kata beliau, Malaysia sendiri sudah dikenali sebagai sebuah negara yang mengamalkan pendekatan sederhana dalam beragama selain pelopor kepada perdagangan Islam termasuk perbankan dan kewangan Islam dan dikenali sebagai hab halal untuk memasarkan pelbagai produk kepada pengguna Muslim di dunia.
Justeru, beliau yakin, penguasaan pasaran itu mampu menjadi realiti sekiranya semua pelopor pergerakan fesyen Islam meneruskan kesinambungan usaha tersebut.
Rosmah juga menganggap pemilihan kota Monte Carlo sebagai lokasi penganjuran kali ini amat tepat bukan saja untuk mempromosikan fesyen Islam tetapi juga pembuka jalan kepada pasaran Eropah bagi fesyen islamik yang diinspirasikan dari Malaysia dan seluruh Asia.
Sementara itu, Albert berkata, penganjuran festival fesyen berkenaan merupakan langkah penting untuk mengubah perspektif negatif dan prejudis terhadap fesyen Islam.
"Acara malam ini sederhana tetapi amat penting untuk mengeratkan persahabatan dan memastikan alam sekitar terus dipelihara dan menyingkirkan ketakutan terhadap busana Muslim," katanya. - UTUSAN

French protesters clash with police

Arrests amid protests against plans to raise retirement age as president warns of "tougher action" against rioters.

Unions against the pension reform vow more protests in the coming weeks [AFP]

France has witnessed another day of confrontations as protesters blocked key sites and clashed with police amid calls by unions for further nationwide protests over plans by the government to raise the retirement age from 60 to 62.
The country's senate is expected to vote on changes to the pensions system as early as Friday, but Al Jazeera's Jacky Rowland, reporting from Paris, the capital, said that the main constituents of the bill have already been passed.


Youths meanwhile clashed with riot police in several cities.
A schoolgirl was taken to hospital on Thursday during clashes with police outside a high school in the central city of Poitiers.
Police in Lyon fired tear gas when a group of around 200 high school students tried to join a demonstration organised by the CGT, the country's main union.
Five youths were arrested in Nice after stones were thrown at police during a demonstration outside a high school.
Unions said 35,000 people took to the streets of the southern city of Toulouse on Thursday, although officials put the figure closer to 8,000.
At least 4,000 high school students marched through the capital, with student union leaders vowing to continue protesting despite half-term holidays which start on Friday.
Student protests
Rowland said that the presence of youths on the streets may decrease as the holidays approach.

"Opposition to these reforms has seen many young French citizens go to the streets along with the powerful unions, but numbers may steadily decline," she said.

Between 3,500 and 5,000 students took to the streets of the southwestern city of Bordeaux, carrying banners such as: "We would have burnt this reform but there's no petrol left."

Activists blocked access to Marseilles airport for several hours before being cleared by police, causing tailbacks of several kilometres.

Troops have also been sent in to clear rubbish from the streets of the Mediterranean port where collectors are on strike.

"By taking the French economy, businesses and daily life hostage, you will destroy jobs," Nicholas Sarkozy, the French president, said on Thursday.

He also accused trade union leaders of undermining France's fragile economic recovery.



"We can't be the only country in the world where, when there's a reform, a minority wants to block everyone else. That's not possible. That's not democracy," said

The president also vowed tough action against rioters.

Government 'intransigence'

Bernard Thibault, the head of the CGT union, said that faced with government "intransigence", there was "no reason to stop these protests" and "we recommend further action from next week".

"We have to continue with the most massive actions possible," he told local radio.

Unions are to meet on Thursday to decide on holding further mass rallies, possibly on Tuesday, a week after the last main protest.

More than a million people took to the streets then, the sixth day of action since September, to protest against the unpopular plan to raise minimum retirement from 60 to 62 and full pension payments from 65 to 67.

Workers in key sectors have been on strike for more than a week to against protest the reform, which the government says is essential to reduce France's public deficit.

Unions and political opponents say it penalises workers.

Kebebasan Akhbar - Kedudukan Malaysia Merudum Dalam Laporan Kebebasan Akhbar


Image Hosted by ImageShack.usKUALA LUMPUR, 20 Okt: Pengekangan demi pengekangan terhadap kebebasan akhbar oleh Kerajaan Barisan Nasional UMNO menyaksikan kedudukan Malaysia jatuh merudum ke tangga 141 dalam indeks laporan Kebebasan Akhbar Sedunia 2010.Badan pemerhati kebebasan akhbar, "Reporters Whithout Borders (RSF) yang berpangkalan di Paris meletakkan Negara ini di tangga ke 141 dalam laporan yang diterbitkan mereka

Kedudukan terbaru itu juga memberi kejutan kerana pencapaian Singapura yang ditempatkan di tangga 136 sekalius menjadikan kedudukan republik itu lebih baik daripada negara ini yang menduduki di tangga ke 131 tahun lalu.

Laporan yang diterbitkan badan tersebut juga menyaksikan pencapaian terburuk negara ini dalam tempoh sembilan tahun malah terperosok dikelompok antara yang  terburuk daripada 178 negara yang disenaraikan.
Antara isu yang mungkin menyebabkan kedudukan negara ini merudum 10 tangga ke bawah adalah isu penahahan penulis-penulis blog, pengharaman beberapa penerbitan buku dan juga kartun serta siasatan Suruhanjaya Komunikasi dan Multimedia Malaysia (SKMM) berhubung laporan akhbar Malaysiakini mengenai isu protes kepala lembu awal tahun ini.


Kementerian Dalam Negeri (KDN) juga barau-baru ini telah mengharamkan penerbitan buku kartun 'Cartoon-o-phobia' oleh pelukis kartun, Zunar serta buku "The March To Putrajaya" terbitan penulis politik, Kim Quek
Bagaimanapun, di kalangan negara Asean, laporan RSF menunjukkan Malaysia diletakkan lebih baik daripada Thailand dan Filipina.
Thailand dan Filipina berada di tangga ke 153 dan 156 berikutan kematian dua wartawan yang terbunuh serta 15 yang cedera ketika membuat liputan demonstrasi 'baju merah' di Bangkok.
Dalam pada itu,  Finland, Iceland, Netherlands, Norway, Sweden and Switzerland berkongsi di tempat pertama manakala Amerika Syarikat pula berada di keduduakan ke 20 dan dua tempat tercorot pula diduduki oleh Korea Utara (177) dan Eritrea (178).
Selain daripada Korea Utara , dua negara Asean lain, Vietnam dan Laos berada dikalangan 15 tempat tercorot daripada 178 negara yang disenaraikan dalam laporan yang disediakan oleh badan terbabit.

Death toll rises in Vietnam floods

More than 140,000 have been forced to flee their homes, according to the national flood committee [AFP]

The death toll from heavy flooding in central Vietnam has climbed to 41, and officials warned that the figure could rise as the search for  at least 18 bus passengers swept away by high waters continues.

Hundreds of soldiers using boats and metal detectors were mobilised to search for the missing passengers and the bus on Tuesday, but efforts were hampered by raging currents.
"I think they are all dead," Tran Van Long, a local police chief, told the AFP news agency. "The search will continue until the time we find the bus and the bodies."
The bus was yanked off the main north-south road as it travelled through Ha Tinh province beside the swollen Lam River on Monday. Eighteen other people on the bus swam to safety or were rescued after clinging to trees and power poles.
Tran Dac Luc, a survivor, was quoted by the VnExpress news website as saying the bus floated at first, but then began to sink slowly as the driver tried to calm passengers.


"The driver asked everyone to stay calm so that he could try to drive onto the pavement," he said.
When that did not work he asked people to break the windows, which would not open until he used a wrench, allowing several people to crawl out, he said. Luc escaped only to watch his son and niece climb free but retreat to the bus because they could not swim, VnExpress quoted him as saying.
"We looked at the bus sinking completely," he said. "I have no hope for them to be alive."
Thousands homeless
Since heavy rains began late last week, floods have wreaked havoc in Ha Tinh and the two adjacent provinces, Nghe An and Quang Binh.
The national floods and storms control committee said the floods had submerged 200,000 houses and forced 142,000 people to flee.
"The disaster has left thousands of people in the province penniless after their assets were swept away in the flood waters," Vo Kim Cu, the chairman of Ha Tinh's local government, was quoted as
saying by the country's Vietnam News.
Television pictures showed rescuers in boats delivering instant noodles.
"My house is flooded to the roof," Nguyen Thi Mai, a Ha Tinh resident, said on national radio. "Officials gave us noodles and clean water today."
The international Red Cross on Monday appealed for more than $1m in aid for victims of the flooding, the second major inundation to hit the central region this month. Earlier floods left at least 64 people dead in Quang Binh and other central provinces.
Forecasters predicted that Typhoon Megi, which slammed into the Philippines on Monday, would likely hit southern China and avoid Vietnam.

1. Astaghfirullah .... satu tindakan yang cukup memalukan , jahil lagi berniat jahat terhadap ajaran Islam yang suci ini. Lebih - lebih lagi penganjurannya dinaungi oleh orang besar negara .

2. Islamic Fashion Show atau Islamic Fashion FestiVal [ IFF ] ini memang berasal dari Malaysia dan ianya diasaskan oleh Dato' Raja Rezza Shah sementara Datin Rosmah Mansur bertindak sebagai penaungnya [ founding patron ] .

3. Bukan sahaja pakaian yang diperagakan ini bertentangan dengan prinsip pakaian Islam , lebih malang mereka berani menghina Rasulullah saw dengan melakarkan nama baginda di pakaian yang sedemikian .



4. Jika bukan niat menghina Islam , tindakan apakah seperti ini ? sungguh memalukan . Saya tidak jangka mereka sejahil itu , sehingga tidak mengetahui bagaimanakah bentuk pakaian Islam yang sebenarnya , sebagaimana yang dikehendaki oleh Allah swt . Firman Allah swt di dalam surah an Nuur ayat : 31

[ Katakan kepada orang - orang perempuan yang beriman , supaya mereka merendahkan pandangannya dan menjaga kehormatannya dan janganlah mereka memperlihatkan perhiasannya kecuali apa yang zahir daripadanya dan hendaklah mereka melabuhkan tudung hingga ke bawah dadanya .

Janganlah mereka memperlihatkan perhiasannya kecuali kepada suaminya , bapanya , bapa suaminya , anaknya , anak suaminya , saudaranya , anak saudaranya yang lelaki , anak saudaranya yang perempuan , perempuan muslimah , hamba sahayanya , orang - orang yang mengikutnya dari kalangan lelaki yang tiada syahwah kepada perempuan , atau kanak - kanak yang belum mengerti tentang aurat perempuan .
Jangan mereka berjalan sambil menggoyangkan kakinya supaya diketahui orang perhiasan yang tersembunyi . Bertaubatlah kamu sekelian kepada Allah wahai orang - orang yang beriman mudah - mudahan kamu beroleh kejayaan . ]


5. Datin Seri Rosmah telah diberikan peluang oleh Allah swt menjadi orang penting dan berpengaruh dalam negara ini . Suami Datin Seri adalah orang bertanggungjawab memimpin negara sebagai Perdana Menteri . Malang jika kedudukan yang dimiliki itu membawa Datin Seri jauh daripada Allah swt . apalagi secara terbuka menentang syariat Allah swt.

6. Baru - baru ini Datin Seri Rosmah berjaya mempengaruhi suami untuk menganugerahkan RM 111 juta bajet negara kepada PERMATA sebagai satu badan yang dipimpin oleh Datin Seri . Kini Datin Seri memiliki segalanya selain suami , iaitu harta dan takhta . Kemungkinan juga ia menjadikan Datin Seri Rosmah sebagai orang paling berkuasa di negara ini .

7. Namun kuasa bukanlah tiket untuk Datin Seri berbuat sesuka hati terutama terhadap agama Islam yang suci ini kerana ia adalah agama milik Allah swt Tuhan yang Maha Berkuasa . Tuhan yang memberi sedikit harta dan takhta kepada Datin Seri . Allah swt berhak dan mampu pada bila - bila masa sahaja menarik kembali segala nikmat yang dikurniakan justeru segala nikmat itu hanya ujian untuk melihatnya hambaNya bersyukur kepadaNya atau kufur .

8. Datin Seri Rosmah boleh memilih untuk bersyukur kepada Allah swt disamping segala keistemewaan dan kemewahan yang dimiliki , tetapi kenapa Datin Seri memilih untuk ingkar dan mempersenda Nabinya saw melalui tindakan Datin Seri menaungi Islamic Fashion Show yang jelas bertentangan dengan Islam ? dan pula menghina Rasulullah saw melalui satu khat nama Rasul yang ditulis secara terbalik pada pakaian murahan sebagaimana yang terdapat di dalam gambar di atas .

9. Tindakan Datin Seri Rosmah cukup meninggalkan kesan jengkel dan kesal dalam jiwa ummat Islam yang perihatin . Memandangkan Datin Seri Rosmah cukup berkuasa dalam negara ini , kenapalah tidak dijadikan kuasa yang dimiliki itu benar - benar memartabatkan Islam. Islamic Fashion Show adalah satu idea yang bijak tetapi malang salah pakaian yang di peragakan. Bukan begitu pakaian Islam . Jika Datin Seri keliru , bagaimanalah pakaian Islam yang sebenarnya , Datin Seri boleh merujuk kepada para mufti yang ramai dalam negara kita atau paling tidak Datin Seri boleh merujuk kepada 40 ulama' Muda yang baru - baru telah dirai dengan hebat lagi berprestij dikala mereka menyertai parti yang dipimpin oleh suami Datin Seri .

10. Justeru itu saya melihat jahil bukan alasan dan isunya di sini . Saya bimbang benar Datin Seri bersekongkol dengan pihak musuh - musuh Islam untuk menghina dan mempersendakan Islam lalu menjadikan Datin Seri sebagai boneka . Namun saya harap tidak begitu , sebaliknya apa yang saya harap ialah Datin Seri kembali kepangkal jalan dan bertaubat kepada Allah Azza wa Jalla terutama saat usia kita telah hampir ke penghujung .

11. Biarpun Datin Seri kelihatan masih sihat , muda , kaya dan berharta , namun suka saya mengingatkan kata - kata hikmah yang selalu dilafazkan oleh Tuan Guru Dato' Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man bahawa mati tidak syarat sakit dan mati juga tidak syarat tua . Sementelah jika kita selalu sakit dan usia pula telah meningkat tua .

12. Datin Seri berdepan dengan amanah ummah . Datin Seri masih ada ruang dan peluang untuk berbakti kepada ummah dan mentaati Allah Azza wa Jalla.

Pertama , janganlah diulang lagi kesilapan serupa. Tarik diri dari terus menaungi program mungkar seperti penganjuran Islamic Fashion Show yang menghina Islam dan mengelirukan ummah .

Kedua , melalui PERMATA yang dipimpin oleh Datin Seri , setelah memiliki peruntukan sedemikian banyak dari bajet negara [ RM 111 juta ] , mengatasi peruntukkan Sekolah Agama Rakyat [ RM 95 juta ] dan peruntukan rakyat marhain , Datin Seri sewajarnya manafaat kan anugerah tersebut untuk berbakti kepada agama , negara dan bangsa seperti mempertingkatkan bantuan pendidikan kepada pelajar luar bandar yang rata - ratanya tidak bernasib baik kerana faktor kemiskinan .

Juga membantu ibu tunggal dan anak - anak yatim di seluruh negara tanpa mengira dari parti manakah mereka warisi kemiskinan itu . Jadilah ibu kepada semua rakyat bukan hanya ibu kepada golongan bangsawan dan kenamaan . Rendahkan sayap untuk turun bersama rakyat , bukan hanya singgah dan berpaut di istana hinggap .

13. Andai Datin Seri terbaca atau membaca Memo Taubat yang saya hantar buat tatapan Datin Seri di alam cyber lalu ini , saya harap Datin Seri tidak marah kepada saya . Justeru saya hanya menyeru agar Datin Seri kembali kepangkuan Islam dengan melaksanakan suruhan Allah swt seperti menutup aurat lalu bertaubat kepada Allah swt atas kesalahan lsilam. Lantas pimpinlah tangan suami Datin Seri ke arah jalan yang betul agar ia menjadi Perdana Menteri yang juga taat kepada Allah swt .

14. Bicara atau Memo Taubat yang saya nukilkan ini memang tidak sedap di dengar oleh Datin Seri berbanding bisikan - bisikan para penasihat istana Datin Seri yang senantiasa mengampu dan memuji . Percayalah , kata - kata itu bukan kerana mereka kasihkan Datin Seri tetapi menjadikan Datin Seri lupa diri dan semakin angkuh di puncak bumi .

15. Saya mewakili Dewan Pemuda PAS Malaysia bahkan seluruh ummat Islam yang terkilan dengan tindakan yang diambil oleh Datin Seri dalam menaungi program mungkar ini sangat berharap agar Datin Seri kembali menyusur pulang ke pangkal jalan dan insyaalah tidak hilang bisa ular dek kerana menyusur akar sebaliknya tawar ilmu sang pendita dek kerana menyusup laku .

Typhoon Megi heads towards China - Asia-Pacific - Al Jazeera English

WANT TO SEE THE VIDEO-> CLICK HERE


After destroying huge tracts of rice and killing at least 13 people in the Philippines, Super Typhoon Megi is heading towards China, where officials have warned the storm may be the worst to strike this year.
Projections show the storm is expected to avoid Vietnam on its way towards China, with the centre passing between Hainan island and Hong Kong.
On Monday, China's National Meteorological Centre urged local governments to make full preparations for extreme weather.
About 140,000 people have been evacuated from 15 cities on Hainan island since heavy rains reached the province on Friday, Xinhua, the official news agency, reported.
In the Philippines, thousands of people sheltered in evacuation centres as heavy rains fell on Tuesday, a day after Megi - known locally as Juan - struck the main island.
Schools were suspended in Manila and other parts of Luzon island amid fears of flash floods, while rescue workers tried to reach villagers stranded in remote areas that were cut off by the typhoon.
"A lot of people are still in danger here in Luzon, especially those areas where there is still rain," Perfecto P Penaredondo, a disaster management official, said.
Megi was a category 5 super typhoon that packed winds in excess of 250 kph as it struck northeastern Luzon shortly before noon on Monday.
Low death toll



The death toll appeared to have been minimised by the government's timely preparations for the storm. More than 7,000 people were evacuated and lorries were sent to help rescue and relief operations.
Alex Rosete, the national Red Cross spokesman, said four people were killed in Pangasinan province, three of them by a collapsed structure and the other by lightning.
Three other people drowned in a storm surge that hit the coastal town of Maconacon in Isabela province, which bore the brunt of  the storm, Faustino Dy, the provincial governor, said.
Roads in and out of Isabela were blocked by collapsed trees, power lines and debris. Iron-sheet roofs on many of the houses were blown away.
The damage to rice and corn is still being assessed. According to an initial estimate, $36m worth of rice and corn crops were lost.
The crops were ready for harvest when the storm, the most powerful typhoon to hit the Philippines in four years, struck.
The Philippines is battered by an average of 20 typhoons a year, some of them deadly.
Tropical Storm Ketsana and Typhoon Parma struck the northern Philippine island of Luzon within a week of each other in September and October last year, triggering the worst flooding in recent history.
The twin storms killed more than 1,000 people, affected nearly 10 million and caused damage to $4.3bn of infrastructure and property, according to the World Bank and international humanitarian agencies.

Abu Sayyaf commander killed in raid

The killing of Albader Parad, pictured, is being seen as a major success for the Philippine military marines

Albader Parad, one of the Philippines's most wanted Abu Sayyaf leaders, has been confirmed killed in fighting with the military in the country's south, sources told Al Jazeera.
A local official has confirmed that Parad was among six Abu Sayyaf fighters killed on Sunday in an encounter with a unit of Philippine marines in Maimbung town on Jolo island, 1,000km south of Manila.
Parad had a $15,000 bounty on his head from the US government as a "wanted terrorist".
His remains have now reportedly been brought to a military base, along with those of his fellow fighters.
The operation is being seen as a major victory for the Philippine military and a huge blow for Abu Sayyaf.
The group had, over the past year, enjoyed a resurgence of activity as it attempted to regain its former strength.
Last year, the Abu Sayyaf wing led by Parad held three employees of the International Committee of the Red Cross hostage captive for several months on Jolo.
Wanted fighters


Earlier on Sunday, a high-ranking Philippine military commander said at least six al-Qaeda-linked fighters had been killed by soldiers in the assault on an Abu Sayyaf base in Jolo.
Lieutenant-Geneneral Benjamin Dolorfino, head of the military's Western Mindanao Command, said a marine special operations platoon raided the camp following intelligence reports that two wanted fighters were there.
He said the body of Parad was identified by civilians who personally knew him.
The operation was based on a "very strong intelligence report" that the two commanders - Umbra Jumdail in addition to Albader Parad - were in the camp, Dolorfino said.
Lieutenant-Colonel Edgard Arevalo, the Philippine marines' spokesman, said one marine was killed and three others were wounded in the fighting.
Surprise attack
The recovery of the dead fighters and their weapons indicated the Abu Sayyaf men were caught by surprise and could have suffered more casualties since it was unusual for them to leave the bodies of dead comrades behind, the Philippine military said.
It said the 30-man marine platoon was backed by other troops deployed to block the escape of the fighters from their encampment on Jolo, where Abu Sayyaf has operated for years despite a US-backed military campaign against them.
Sunday's clash came just three days after Philippine authorities arrested another Abu Sayyaf member who had been on the  run for nine years.
Jumadail Arad was allegedly on a mission to buy firearms for the group when he was arrested on Thursday in a joint navy and police  intelligence operation.
Numerous bombings
The Abu Sayyaf is a self-styled group of Muslim fighters blamed for the Philippines's worst attacks, including the bombing of a passenger ferry on Manila Bay that killed over 100 people in 2004.
Abu Sayyaf, which has about 400 fighters, has been blamed for numerous bombings, beheadings and kidnappings of Filipinos and foreigners, including Americans.
Several Filipinos have been kidnapped but most either escaped or were released, allegedly after ransom payments.
Abu Sayyah is believed to have received funds from al-Qaeda and is on a US list of "terrorist" organisations.

Mauritania sentences al-Qaeda men

Three members of al-Qaeda-linked group handed death sentences for killings of a police officer and four French tourists.

security forces [EPA]

A court in Mauritania has sentenced three members of an al-Qaeda-linked group to death for their involvement in a 2008 attack in which a policeman was killed.
Khayi Ould Mohamed, the chief judge, issued the sentences late on Wednesday in the capital, Nouakchott.
The three men were from the group Ansar Allah, which is linked to al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM),  the north African wing of the network.
Khadim Ould Semane, the self-proclaimed leader of Ansar Allah, was accused of playing a role in the death of a policeman during a shootout in the capital Nouakchott in 2008.


Two other members of the group, Sidi Ould Sidna and Marouf Ould Haiba, also were sentenced to death, though both previously had been sentenced to death in May for their roles in the killing of four French tourists in 2007.
Jail sentences
Eight others were jailed for between two and 15 years for involvement in the policeman's murder. One of the defendants, a Tunisian and the only foreign national, was acquitted.
A total of 19 members of the group are standing trial.
While capital punishment is legal in Mauritania, the last time the country executed a convict was in 1984.
Mauritania is one of several West African nations where al Qaeda gunmen have attacked foreigners and local security forces and has joined in recent joint military operations in the region targeting the group fighters.
Al Qaeda's North African wing, al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb, claimed responsibility last month for the kidnapping of five French nationals in Niger.
The group is believed to have grown out of the Salafist movement in Algeria, and experts say it is now bringing in millions of dollars in ransoms in the vast and lawless Sahel region.

Somali pirates seize S Korean ship

Fishing vessel carrying 43 people hijacked off coast of Kenya in Indian Ocean, South Korean officials report.

Somali pirates accrued an estimated $60m in ransoms last year [File: EPA]


Somali pirates have seized a South Korean fishing boat off the coast of Kenya with 43 people on board, South Korean officials said.
The crab fishing vessel was carrying two South Koreans, two Chinese and 39 Kenyans when it was hijacked on October 9 near the Kenyan island of Lamu in the Indian Ocean, the South Korean foreign ministry said in a statement on Sunday.
"We are investigating the exact circumstances surrounding the incident by setting up an emergency team at our embassy in Kenya," it said.
It did not specify the whereabouts of the 241-ton vessel, named the Keummi 305, and its crew.


However, a South Korean citizen living in Mombasa, Kenya, told the South Korean news agency Yonhap that the pirates took the boat to Harardhere, north of Mogadishu, the Somali capital.
Countering piracy

There was no immediate report of a ransom demand.

"Given past instances, it would put the hostages in even more danger if the government tried to negotiate directly with the pirates," a ministry official said. "We're trying to find out more about the incident using all possible channels.

The latest hijacking came as South Korea increases efforts to counter piracy in international waters.

In April, pirates seized a South Korean oil tanker with 24 crew members off the coast of Somalia and it has been held since then.

The 300,000-ton South Korean-operated, Singapore-owned Samho Dream, was on its way from Iraq to the US state of Louisiana with a crew of five South Koreans and 19 Filipinos.

Somali pirates commonly target one of the world's busiest maritime trade routes, accruing an estimated $60m in ransoms last year.

In all, Somali pirates were thought to be responsible for 217 acts of piracy in 2009, in which 47 vessels were hijacked and 867 crew members taken hostage.

China will try to prevent the publication of a United Nations report that alleges Chinese bullets were used in attacks on UN peacekeepers in Darfur.

The report was discussed at a UN committee that monitors sanctions against Sudan, including an arms embargo against the Darfur region, on Wednesday.

Under the 2005 embargo, arms sales to Sudan are legal but the Khartoum government must give guarantees that the supplies will not end up in Darfur, where the UN estimates that at least 300,000 people have been killed since rebels took arms against the government in 2003.

According to diplomats, the report says that bullet casings found at the scene of attacks on UN troops were made in China, Sudan and Israel.

But Zhao Baogang, a Chinese representative to the UN, criticised the conclusions of the report, saying it "is full of flaws with too many unconfirmed facts".
"Where did they get the informed sources? No evidence is given.
"The report lacks confirmed facts, how can we agree on those recommendations? We ask them to improve the work of the methodology," Zhao said.

It was unclear if the report was able to establish if the bullets were supplied directly to Sudan or were bought elsewhere on the African arms market.


'Major flaw'
The full details of the accusations are likely to be revealed next week when the report will be submitted to the Security Council.

"China has always argued that it abides by the embargo rules in its arms sales to Sudan, equally human rights groups have long accused China of allowing its military equipment to end up in the Darfur conflict," Al Jazeera's Harry Fawcett, reporting from Beijing, said.

"According to the embargo all states should take the necessarily steps to prevent the supplies of arms in the region.

"Many say that it is a major flaw in this embargo by allowing weapons sales to Sudan as long as the government can guarantee that no arms will be used in Darfur, it is a difficult task for external government to police."

Fawcett also said that China has very strong interest in Sudan, which produces half a million barrels of oil a day. Beijing is its biggest customer.

China is one of five permanent members of the Security Council and can block any of its resolutions.

Last week it threatened to block a resolution extending the mandate of the Sudan sanctions committee experts, a diplomat said. It finally abstained following talks with the United States.



"China has serious concerns about the annual report submitted by the panel of experts on the Sudan sanctions committee and believes that there is much room for improvement in the work of the panel," the Chinese representative told the Security Council.

Viva Palestina convoy reaches Gaza

Hundreds of peace activists have arrived in Gaza carrying humanitarian supplies [Reuters]



Pro-Palestinian activists in more than 100 cars and trucks have crossed into the Israeli-blockaded Gaza Strip through Egypt's Rafah crossing with aid worth nearly $5m.
The multinational "Viva Palestina" ship arrived at Egypt's port city of al-Arish from Lattakia, Syria, earlier on Thursday.
About 300 activists then flew into al-Arish airport and converged with the ship's passengers before entering Gaza.
The activists had initially joined up in Syria from Turkey, Algeria, Morocco, Jordan, and more than two dozen other countries.
The convoy, which was organised by George Galloway, a British politician, originally departed from London on September 18 and arrived in Syria two weeks later.
The activists then waited for over two weeks in Lattakia for permission from the Egyptian authorities for the shipment, which includes medical supplies and school equipment, to be allowed to enter al-Arish port.
The aid does not include any building materials, which the Egyptian authorities did not allow, as part of the agreement permitting the activists to enter Gaza for three days.
Israel has kept Gaza under a blockade since 2007, saying it is a necessary step to stop arms reaching the Hamas group running the strip.
Several dozen survivors from the Israeli attack on May 31 on the Turkish aid ship the Mavi Marmara were among those in the "Viva Palestina" convoy.
'Summary executions'
Israeli commandos killed nine pro-Palestinian Turkish activists when they boarded the Mavi Marmara, the main vessel in a 'Freedom Flotilla' also attempting to deliver aid to Gaza.
Israel's leaders said their troops opened fire in self-defence after being set upon by activists.
However, a UN inquiry last month found that Israeli troops broke international law by boarding the flotilla and found that the killings of activists on-board were comparable to "summary executions".

After an international outcry over the Mavi Marmara raid, Israel relaxed its embargo but construction materials remain restricted.
Gazans have limited freedom of movement and Israel still enforces its naval blockade.

TV3 telah menyiarkan iklan Sinari Lembaran beberapa hari menjelang hari raya yang lalu. Namun selepas menerima bantahan  dari pelbagai pihak termasuk Pemuda PAS, iklan yang memakan belanja RM200,000 itu ditarik balik oleh TV3.
Iklan itu cuba membayangkan hari raya menjadi 1Raya sebagaimana 1Malaysia yang menggabungkan unsur Kristian dan Hindu serta Buddha dalam iklan itu.

Para penumpang terpaksa berjalan kaki ke terminal sebelum anggota polis datang menyebabkan kumpulan penunjuk perasaan bersurai. Mereka turut menghalang laluan kereta api di sekitar Paris.
Beberapa buah lebuh raya terjejas apabila beberapa buah kereta dan trak menghalang laluan di Calais di utara dan Pyrenees, selatan Perancis.
Menteri Dalam Negeri Perancis, Brice Hortefeux menyelar individu yang terlibat dalam protes tersebut.

BARANGAN elektronik seperti telefon bimbit perlu dilupuskan secara

sistematik bagi mengelak pencemaran alam sekitar. - Gambar hiasan


PUTRAJAYA - Peningkatan penggunaan barangan elektronik seperti telefon bimbit dan televisyen menyebabkan sisa buangan elektrik dan elektronik di Malaysia bertambah setiap tahun.
Menteri Sumber Asli dan Alam Sekitar, Datuk Douglas Uggah Embas (gambar) berkata, barangan seperti telefon bimbit dan televisyen mengandungi pelbagai bahan berbahaya seperti toksik, plumbum, raksa dan arsenik yang akan mengeluarkan dioksin apabila dibakar dan boleh menjejaskan alam sekitar serta memudaratkan rakyat jika tidak diuruskan dengan baik seperti menyebabkan penyakit kegagalan otak dan kanser.




"Bahan-bahan ini boleh memudaratkan tetapi jika ia diurus dengan baik, ia boleh memberi peluang perniagaan yang lumayan," katanya pada majlis Pelancaran Minggu Alam Sekitar Malaysia Peringkat Kebangsaan 2010 di sini semalam.
Uggah berkata, pada tahun lalu, sebanyak 30.4 juta telefon bimbit didaftarkan di seluruh negara manakala 96 peratus rumah di Semenanjung dan 88 peratus rumah di Sabah dan Sarawak mempunyai televisyen.

French protesters march in Paris as lawmakers vote

Protesters march against the French government's austerity measures


Paris, France (CNN) -- The French Senate adopted new rules Thursday to speed up voting on a controversial pension reform bill that has sent more than a million people onto the streets in protest.

Thousands of people demonstrated in central Paris on Thursday as protesters and lawmakers went down to the wire in a battle over the bill. Protest leaders said they planned to march close to the Senate.

Lawmakers, trying to wade through more than 1,000 amendments -- many put up by opposition senators to try to derail the bill -- will group them together rather than voting on each one, Labor Minister Eric Woerth announced.

He said debate on the bill had gone on longer than on any other law since the Fifth Republic came into existence in 1958.

The bill would raise the retirement age from 60 to 62, among other changes.

About 4,000 people -- mostly students -- were out demonstrating against it on Thursday, police estimated.





The march was largely peaceful, CNN's Phil Black at the scene reported, although there were confrontations between students on the one hand and riot police and undercover police in the crowd on the other.

The protesters marched through the city, blocking intersections as they headed for Denfert Rochereau, a central Paris square that has seen many demonstrations over the years.

Some 200 demonstrators blocked France's Marseille Provence Airport for more than three hours Thursday as strikes and protests continued across the country, trade unions said.

But some people are losing patience with the demonstrators, some of whom are causing fuel shortages.

A middle-aged woman who said she had been looking for gas for her motorcycle for an hour said people have "had enough."

"We are really sick of these idiots who are turning our country upside down. We have had enough of all these horrible trade unions that are messing up this country. That is all I have to say," said the woman, who refused to give her name.

The country continues to face some fuel shortages because workers are on strike at all 12 of the nation's refineries, and protesters are blocking 14 of the country's 219 oil terminals.

Pop star Lady Gaga postponed two Paris shows this weekend because of "the logistical difficulties due to the strikes," her website said.

"Unfortunately, as there is no certainty that the trucks can make it to the Bercy for this weekend's shows, the Lady Gaga performances are now postponed," the statement said.

The French Senate is working its way through roughly 1,000 amendments to the pension reform bill, and a final vote on the bill could come as early as Thursday or as late as Sunday.

The lower house of parliament has already passed it, by a vote of 329 to 233.

If there are substantial differences between the Senate and National Assembly versions, a conference committee will have to iron them out before the final version goes to President Nicolas Sarkozy.

France has been reeling from the strikes. Police and protesters clashed Wednesday, and on Tuesday, 428 people were arrested in connection with the demonstrations.

About 1.1 million people demonstrated across the country on Tuesday, French media quoted police as saying. Unions put the figure at 3.5 million nationwide that day.

The ongoing strike follows a series of one-day strikes this month and last month. The strikers have crippled transportation, and affected schools and fuel supplies.

Students from high schools have been skipping classes to join the protests. Some students told CNN in Paris that they are worried they won't be able to get jobs if the current generation hangs onto jobs for an extra two years.

French authorities unblocked three fuel depots Wednesday after the president ordered police to break blockades by strikers.

"We did it because the west of France is threatened by a very severe shortage of fuel. The opening of these three depots was essential and will gradually allow normal activity to resume," Interior Minister Brice Hortefeux said.

The French government contends that the country cannot afford the earlier retirement payments.

"I will implement the pension reform because my duty as head of state is to ensure that French people and their children can count on retirement and that the amount they receive will be maintained," Sarkozy said Wednesday.
