Syria chemical arms ‘probably used’ in five cases, UN finds

Inspectors

Chemical weapons were “probably used” at five out of seven sites in Syria, UN investigators say in their report. In two cases, the weapons targeted soldiers, and in a third, soldiers and civilians, the report says. The report has not determined whether the government or rebels had used the weapons. The inspectors had already confirmed the deadly nerve gas sarin was used in an attack near Damascus on 21 August which killed hundreds. The report said it had evidence that chemical weapons in Ghouta, Khan al-Assal, Jobar, Saraqueb and Ashrafieh Sahnaya. However, the inspectors said they could not corroborate their use…

Dany Laferrière, élu à l’Académie française

FRANCE-LITERATURE-LAFERRIERE

– L’écrivain canadien d’origine haïtienne a été élu dès le premier tour avec treize voix sur vingt-trois. Vous connaissez les critères pour être élu à l’Académie française? Le bon profil académique a été défini en une formule par Jacques Chastenet, diplomate et historien, qui a siégé sous la Coupole de 1956 à 1978. Il avait dit devant Maurice Druon: «Il faut avoir du talent, de la notoriété et être de bonne compagnie». Depuis cette phrase a été maintes fois répétée et expliquée. «Les deux premières exigences vont de soi. La troisième ne demande qu’un peu de réflexion: nous allons fréquenter…

North Korea says Jang Song Thaek, uncle of leader Kim Jong Un, executed

Jang, Chief of Central Administrative Department of Workers' Party of Korea, arrives at Ziguangge building in Beijing

– North Korea said on Friday Jang Song Thaek, the uncle of leader Kim Jong Un and previously considered the second most powerful man in the secretive state, has been executed after a special military tribunal found him guilty of treason. “The accused Jang brought together undesirable forces and formed a faction as the boss of a modern day factional group for a long time and thus committed such hideous crime as attempting to overthrow the state,” the North’s official KCNA news agency said. Earlier this week the North stripped Jang of all posts, accusing him of criminal acts including mismanagement of…

Beijing to buy new buses to clear city smog: media

Residents wearing masks ride their electric bicycles on a street amid heavy haze in Shaoxing, Zhejiang province

– China’s capital Beijing, regularly shrouded in hazardous air pollution, plans to replace its oil-burning buses with greener models by 2017 to help clear the smog, state news agency Xinhua said. Nearly 14,000 new buses powered by electricity or natural gas will be bought to replace two-thirds of Beijing’s bus fleet and halve carbon emissions, Xinhua said on Thursday, citing the city’s environment and transportation authorities. Air pollution in Beijing hit unprecedented levels in January when an index measuring particulate matter with a diameter of 2.5 micrometers (PM2.5) shot up to a staggering 755 – 38 times the level recommended…

La loi électorale arriverait trop tard, dans un contexte de crise aux multiples facettes

Port-au-Prince — En dépit de la publication de la nouvelle loi électorale, dans le journal officiel de la république « Le Moniteur », les tensions entre l’actuelle administration politique et les acteurs de l’opposition ne pourront pas être aplanies sans un dialogue franc et ouvert, selon des personnalités interrogées par AlterPresse. Transmise officiellement par la présidence, le mardi 10 décembre 2013, aux Presses nationales pour publication, la loi électorale a été votée, le mercredi 27 novembre 2013, par la chambre des députés dans les mêmes termes que le sénat haïtien qui l’avait adopté le 2 octobre 2013. La loi électorale « arrive trop…

French cafe causes a stir by rewarding ‘polite’ clients

Un cafe

A French Riviera cafe has created a stir on social media by rewarding its customers for good manners. At the Petite Syrah in Nice on the Cote d’Azur a cup of coffee becomes cheaper by adding a simple “Hello” and “please” when ordering. A blackboard outside the cafe advertises “Un cafe” for seven euros (£5.90; $9.6) – but “Bonjour, un cafe, s’il vous plait” costs just 1.40 euros. Owner Fabrice Pepino says it started as joke but his clients now smile more. A picture of the menu tweeted by a local journalist has gone viral. So far, the story on…

60 Dernières années d’archives perdues selon Wilfrid Bertrand

Les 60 dernières années d’archives publiques d’Haïti sont endommagées voire perdues en grande partie à cause du séisme de janvier 2010 qui a ravagé le pays, a alerté mercredi le directeur des Archives nationales. Après le séisme, «il n’y a pas eu d’inventaire, on ne peut pas savoir ce qu’on a perdu, mais je peux dire qu’il y a eu des pertes énormes», a fait remarquer Jean Wilfrid Bertrand, à l’occasion de la semaine internationale des archives francophones hébergée jusqu’au 13 décembre par Haïti. Le tremblement de terre qui a tué plus de 200 000 personnes a détruit les principaux…
