The suspect fired his gun and struck one of the officers

  in the vest. A second officer fired back and hit the suspect, Splinter said.

  Both the officer and the suspect were transported to a local hospital, and the officer was treated and released. The suspect is listed in critical condition.

  Police said that per their policy, the identities of the officers involved will be released after 48 hours.

  The incident brings to mind the movie “Ocean’s Eleven.” In the film, Danny Ocea

n (Clooney), Pitt and other accomplices plan a heist on several casinos, including the Bellagio.

  Parts of Iowa, Missouri and Nebraska are grappling with the aftermath of a powerful “bomb

cyclone” that turned some areas into swamps as rivers spilled over highways and residential areas.

  The “bomb cyclone” slammed the central US with hurricane-like w

inds and blizzard conditions this week, leaving in its tracks heavy rains and flooding.

  In a news conference Friday, Nebraska Gov. Pete Ricketts said the state has experienced historic flooding in nearly every region.

Barack Obama: “We grieve with you and the Muslim community”

  At least 49 people were killed and 20 seriously injured in two mass shootings at mosques in the New Zealand city of Christchurch.

  The victims: Forty-one people were killed at the al Noor mosque. Seven people died at the Linwood mosque, and one person died from their injuries in hospital.

  The suspect: Police said a male in his late 20s has been charged with murder and will appear at the Christchurch court Saturday morning local time.

  The manifesto: In a social media post just before the attack, an account that is believed to belong to one of the attackers posted a l

ink to an 87-page manifesto that was filled with anti-immigrant, anti-Muslim ideas and explanations for an attack. The manifesto was not signed.

  National security advisor John Bolton expanded upon the White House’s statement on the

attack on New Zealand mosques, which he characterized as “what seems to be a terrorist attack” and a “hate crime.”

  Bolton said the US is “very concerned” and is following the events “very closely.”

  He told reporters Friday morning:

  “We’re obviously greatly disturbed on what seems to be a terror attack, this hate crime in New Zealand. We’ve been in touch

with our embassy overnight, we’re still getting details, but the State Department and others are following up on it.”

  Bolton continued, “We’re very concerned, we’re going to cooperate with New Zealand authori

ties to the extent we can if there’s any role we can play, but we’re obviously following the events there very closely.”

said it provided tailored services for the major gov

ernment campaigns aimed at addressing three causes of popular discont

ent, namely cracking down on organized crimes, crimes disrupting the poverty relief

program, and those ruining the national environmental protection campaign.

The Supreme People’s Court said in its report that it had fulfilled the task it set itself in 201

6 to “basically resolve the problem of difficulties in implementing court rulings in two or three years”, an achi

evement that has boosted judicial credibility and strengthened public confidence in the entire justice system.

National security, crimes endangering public safety, and the correcting of wrong verdicts have

been priority concerns on the national judiciary’s recent agenda, and they will no doubt continue to have prid

e of place, and not just this year, as they are of great significance to society’s overall stability.

GebreMariam also confirmed the company owns 6 other 737 Max 8 aircraft which are in service. Asked about whether

the company would be grounding them he explained they wouldn’t as “we don’t know the cause of the accident.”

The Boeing 737 Max 8 airplane had flown into Addis Ababa Sunday morning from Johannesburg on Flight ET858.

The CEO has visited the crash site today. He said the plane “is now right inside the ground” and it was not possible to identify w

The Ethiopian Airlines tragedy on Sunday comes months after a Lion Air flight went down over the Java Sea in late October, killing all 189 people on board.

There is no suggestion yet as to what caused the latest disaster, and no evidence that th

e two incidents are linked. All that is known, however, is that both flights took place on the Boeing 737 MA

X 8 — a new model recently unveiled to great fanfare by the US aviation giant, that saw its first flight less than two years ag

o.The plane that crashed on Sunday morning was delivered to Ethiopian Airlines in November.

Beyond Parallel reported there has been “activity” at a verti

  ical engine test pad and a launch pad’s rail-mounted rocket transfer structure. It concluded that the activity was “deliberate and purposeful.”

  The CIA declined to comment on the photographs.

  South Korean lawmaker Lee Hye-hoon told CNN Wednesday that the country’s Nationa

l Intelligence Service (NIS) revealed in a briefing that there has been restoration activity at Tongchang-ri.

  Tongchang-ri activity

  Though the satellite images provide useful information, analysts and experts caution

against reading too much into them without sufficient intelligence to complement.

  ”If North Korea does something they want us to know, they would say it. They haven’t said

anything,” said Joseph Yun, the State Department’s former special representative for North Korea policy.

  ”We don‘t know enough to say one way or the other. My own guess is it’s too early to think that this is a response to happen in Hanoi,” Yun said.

  Joel Wit, a former State Department diplomat and founder of 38 North, said on Twitter that the movement at Ton

gchang-ri did not provide any evidence that North Korea was preparing to test an intercontinental ballistic missile.

few months after he assumed the office of Chief Minister of

  Gujarat in late 2001, the state was wracked with violence in which more than 1,000 people — mostly Muslims — were killed.

  Although his critics say Modi didn’t do enough to stop the violence, he has always denied any involvement and has never be

en charged with a crime. A supreme court ordered investigation in India cleared him of any blame or wrongdoing.

  Now after five years at the helm, he is struggling to retain the support that

saw his spectacular rise in 2014 — in contrast to his Pakistani counterpart. Imran Kh

an, the former cricket star, has been in power in neighboring Pakistan for little over half a year.

delivery people consider their job ‘promising’ Surveyter tra

  BEIJING – A recent survey by China’s State Post Bureau said 35.8 percent of delivery workers c

onsidered their occupation “promising” and would like to continue in that position.

  The survey consisted of 6,000 delivery people across China mostly born in the 1980s and 1990s.

  About 76 percent of the delivery workers are from rural areas, wh

ile nearly 16 percent are from towns or counties, according to the survey.

  Major sources of stress for delivery workers include low wages and insufficient benefits, lack of understanding of t

heir job from customers and the public, long working hours and little chances of promotion, the survey said.

  Most of those surveyed earn less than 5,000 yuan ($743) per month but gen

erally gain more during the annual Double 11 online shopping spree in No

vember, during which over 80 percent of the country’s delivery workers handle more than 200 packages per day.

  China’s express delivery industry is rapidly developing, with around 3 million delivery workers.

  ”Delivery worker” was added to the revision of the national occupation list of China in 2015, meaning it has been recognized by the state as an occupation.

The Modi administration has undertaken significant steps

India’s tax system, upgrade its bankruptcy laws and relax restrictions on foreign investment. The country witnessed a 23-place jump to a record 77th p

osition in the World Bank’s latest report on the ease of doing business, which covered 190 countries and regions. Fa

cts have proved that India’s economic reforms are conducive to improving the business climate for foreign investment.

Modi has launched a range of reform initiatives, and now the Modi administration must t

ell local authorities to fully implement these policies to ensure that the country’s economic re

form will go forward ahead of the general election. Effective implementation of current policies is mo

re important than launching new initiatives, and this effort will lay the groundwork for a better business climate.

India’s labor cost advantage has led some Chinese manufacturers to look closely at setting up assembly lines

in the country. Achieving a better understanding of India’s changing business climate will he

lp achieve win-win results and joint development of the two emerging economies.

China and India must enhance strategic communication and mutual trust to move their ec

onomic ties forward. Currently, the most urgent task is to prevent the suic

ide attack in the Pulwama district from affecting economic relations and India’s inbound investment.

It is easy to feel the influence of the US when dealing with region

al affairs in Southeast Asia. Although Duterte’s strategies differ in some ways fro

m those of his predecessors, the US still has strong influence on the Philippines. It is understandable that M

anila may worry that the takeover of strategic facilities by Chinese companies could affect its relationship with the US. So

me US politicians may also use the South China Sea issue to instigate reckless moves against Chinese investment.

Politicizing investment is a pervasive problem faced by China as the country pushes forward the BRI. China and the Philippines need to make join

t efforts to resolve the issue. China should back the establishment of mechanisms such as the South China Sea Code of Conduct to sa

feguard the interests of all parties and build the foundation for win-win cooperation. As for the Philippines, the c

ountry needs to rid itself of US influence with a new understanding of the Chinese investment. We hope the Philippines can p

rovide fair treatment to Chinese enterprises and abandon its old idea that it has to take sides between China and the US.
