God that was some mess in Duisburg, Germany. Think 19 people confirmed dead. Knew about 25 people who went over for a 30th party. Absolute chaos and its a wonder more were not killed or injured. I believe they had one exit for all people,and they expected around 1.4 Million people. WTF were the organisers thinking.

Brazilian host investigated over TV killings

A crime TV show host is under investigation by Brazilian police for allegedly ordering killings to boost his show's popularity.

A politician who hosted a crime TV show with graphic footage of murder victims is under investigation by Brazilian police for allegedly ordering killings to boost his show's popularity.

Police confirmed they are investigating Wallace Souza and his son after claims that at least five killings were ordered to boost his ratings.

Detectives became suspicious when his television crews often seemed to be the first at the scene of the crime.

State police intelligence chief Thomaz Vasconcelos said the alleged crimes appeared to have served the Souzas in two ways; 'they eliminated drug-trafficking rivals, and they boosted ratings'.

Wallace Souza's lawyer, Francisco Balieiro, said his client vehemently denied the accusations and accused political opponents of trying to disgrace him with false accusations.

Mr Souza became a media personality after a career as a police officer that ended in disgrace.

He started 'Canal Livre' in the 1990s on a local station in Manaus, the capital of Brazil's Amazonas state.

It became extremely popular among the 1.7m residents of Manaus before going off the air late last year as police intensified their investigation.

The show featured Mr Souza, in a studio, railing against rampant crime in the state, punctuated with often exclusive footage of arrests, crime scenes and drug seizures.

Just seen a documentary on these set of islands in the Indian Ocean which the British agreed with the US to be used as a military base around the time of the Cold War.The agreement which was not signed by the British parliament, but rather signed by Her Royal Highness stated that the main island Diego Garcia which would be used as the main base had NO inhabitants only a few contract workers. In fact it had at least 2000 native people who had been living there for a few generations.In 1971 when the US forces arrived to set up base all the inhabitants were made leave their native island and move 1500 miles away to Mauritius.The Chagossian people are still fighting for their right to return to the island.

Chilling threat to customs workers 
Cavan Echo 
By Alastair MacManus 
A Continuity IRA member issued a threat to custom officials working along the border and other civil servants during a republican commemoration in Cavan last week.
The threat was made following the unveiling of a Republican memorial just outside the County Cavan village of Swanlinbar last Saturday.
A man, claiming to represent the South Fermanagh Command of the CIRA, said custom officials and those who work for the northern Driver and Vehicle Testing Agency may soon be branded "legitimate targets".
In front of around 300 people in attendance, the masked man stated: "It has come to our attention that in recent weeks Customs and Excise and the DVLA have been collaborating with the RUC in the County Fermanagh area.
"We order them to desist immediately or we will be forced to label them legitimate targets."
Michael Og Lavelle, the co-ordinator of the Cavan/Fermanagh commemoration committee, declined to comment on the content of the statement.
"We of Republican Sinn Féin support the stance taken by the Continuity IRA but with regards to statements from that organisation, it is not for us to comment."
Michael went on to describe the event as a complete success.
"It was a very well attended event with around 250 to 300 people there. Although there were a lot of local people present, there were also many who travelled from around the country.
"A Republican band from Portadown called Pride of Erin and a 13 man colour party helped make the event a great success."
The event marked the fiftieth anniversary of the deaths of IRA volunteers James Crossan and Patrick McManus who died near Swanlibar.
RSF President Ruairí ó Brádaigh stated: "Men such as McManus and Crossan had time to prove themselves on different levels of service. Their true successors today are those who reject the British colonial statelet north of this line of the border and the collaborationist state south of it and who stand by the All-Ireland Republic of Tone, Pearse and Connolly."

This was the front page of the local free newspaper the Cavan Echo on Friday last.Now I dunno exactly what the DVLA is supposed to hav done but this development and its like would worry me.As events showed in the last few months around the Fermanagh border that there are still some people (hopefully a small number of eejits) who do not want peace in the North.Maybe somebody on here knows more about the CIRA and Republican Sinn Fein and its aims and motives but in this day and age and the way the Peace process has developed,I would hope that these kind of events are isolated.
Anybody have any views?
