A skirmish between China and Japan thrust him into the role of international mediator on the eve of his departure. Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel arrived in the Afghan capital Saturday for an unannounced visit that comes as Washington and President Hamid Karzai remain at loggerheads over the terms of a plan that would keep American troops in the country beyond the end of next year. But the estrangement between the Asian powers is so deep they are barely talking.
This week’s incident in Mexico, in which highly lethal cobalt was stolen in a truck theft and not recovered for two days, may have carhas unusually disquieting, but it was not unusual. Nuclear material is stolen or lost two to four dozen times a year every year. Sometimes small amounts, sometimes large. It happens an awful lot in Russia and other former Soviet states; it happens in poorer, nuclear-capable countries such as Mexico, India and South Africa; and you’d better believe it happens in warie countries, as well, particularly in France.
They parked their cars blocks away and walked through the darkness, some carrying candles, some flowers. They were men, women and children, black, white and brown, Christians, Muslims and Jews, gays and lesbians, and they all walked until they converged in front of the house of the man mourned by the whole world.
When Nelson Mandela was released from prison inhe brought a vision of forgiveness and reconciliation to rebuild a nation marred by the legacy of white rule.

The world today mourns Nelson Mandela, who died in his South African home at age 95 after leading a historic and world-changing life.
His death has sparked global celebrations of his legacy, discussions of his impact and debate over his ideology and politics. It can seem like everyone has a strongly held opinion about him. To fully appreciate what former South African president Nelson Mandela was able to accomplish, it is necessary to hearken back to the South Africa he found when he emerged from prison inand what the country was like in those critical four years between his release and his election to the presidency in Nelson Mandela, the anti-apartheid crusader and former South African president, died Dec.

World news and comment from the Guardian theguardian. Despite recent rumours of cancellationboth of Elton John’s Russian concerts went ahead on 6 and 7 December, with the singer speaking out against “inhumane and isolating” anti-gay legislation during the show.
In Moscow, John dedicated his concert to Vladislav Tornovoi, a year-old man who was tortured and murdered after supposedly telling his friends he was gay. So I am deeply saddened and shocked over the current legislation that is now in place against the LGBT community here in Russia.
Acknowledging that many westerners called for him to boycott Russia over these laws, John said that he doesn’t “believe in isolating people. Music is a very powerful thing. It brings people together irrespective of their age, cartax race, their sexuality, or their religion The spirit we share tonight is what builds a future of equality, love and compassion for my children and for your children.
Please don’t leave it behind when you leave tonight. Elton John was one of the first western musicians to cross the iron curtain, performing in Moscow and St Petersburg in He has repeatedly returned, most recently in But John is also visiting a region where institutionalised homophobia has had a 21st century resurgence: Inneighbouring Ukraine declined an adoption request from John and his civil partner, David Furnish.
John’s Moscow speech did not directly criticise president Vladimir Putin, nor call for the dissolution of Russia’s ban on “homosexual propaganda”. Complaining that he wasn’t feeling well, the year-old closed the show by telling his audience, “God bless you all”. In October, one of Kazan’s most important imams threatened “divine retribution” for John and any fans who attended his 7 December gig.

Ukraine riot police enter central Kiev amid rumours of storm on square Opposition leader Vitali Klitschko calls on women and children to leave Independence square.
Cordons of riot police moved into central Kiev early on Monday afternoon in what appeared to be preparations by the Ukrainian government to regain control of Independence square and Kiev city hall, occupied by anti-government protesters for the past week. The move comes after a week of protests against President Viktor Yanukovych’s decision not to sign an integration pact with the EU, culminating in the biggest protest since the Orange Revolution on Sunday, when hundreds of thousands of people flooded central Kiev.
The protest ended with Kiev’s statue of Lenin toppled by protesters and attacked with hammers. As the riot police moved into the centre of town on Monday, a priest conducted a religious service from the stage, accompanied by chanting from the assembled crowd, a fraction of Sunday’s masses but still numbering several thousand.
Several lines of riot police and interior ministry troops wearing helmets and holding shields blocked the roads leading to Independence square and city hall. However, the Kyiv Post newspaper reported a “top government source” had confirmed that the decision has been taken to storm the square, and heavyweight boxer and Vitali Klitschko, one of the three main opposition leaders, called on women and children to leave the square as rumours spread that a storm could be imminent.
Three central metro stations crtas closed over apparent bomb threats, with rumours spreading dieie the protesters that the metro could be used to deliver soldiers into central Kiev. Protesters have dug in at the square, with a hardcore of several hundred setting up a makeshift camp with tents, log fires and soup kitchens, while a large stage blasts pop music ljbro speeches by opposition leaders. On Sunday, protest leaders gave Yanukovych 48 hours to fire his prime minister, and said if he did not they would march on his country residence.
There have also been demands for snap parliamentary and presidential elections. City hall, which has become a makeshift dormitory for protesters since it was occupied a week ago, was evacuated of civilians as news of the riot police moves spread. About people remained, who said they digie willing to defend the building from any attack.
Yanukovych, who has kept a low profile since the protests began, released a statement on Monday saying he supported the idea of an “all-nation carrtas table” to find a solution to the political crisis.
Best pictures of the day – live The Guardian’s photo team brings you a daily round up from the world of photography. Edward Snowden voted Guardian person of the year Whistleblower’s victory, for exposing the scale of internet surveillance, follows that of Chelsea Manning last year. For the second consecutive year, a young American whistleblower alarmed at the unfettered and at times cynical deployment of power by the world’s foremost superpower has been voted the Guardian’s person of the year.
Edward Snowdenwho leaked x estimatedfiles that exposed the extensive and intrusive nature of telephone and internet surveillance and intelligence gathering by the US and its western allies, was the overwhelming choice of more than 3, people who cast a vote. In a distant second, from a list of 10 candidates chosen by Guardian writers and editors, came Marco Weber and Sini Saarela, the Greenpeace activists who spearheaded the oil rig protest over Russian Arctic drilling.
They received votes. Pope Francis gained votes, narrowly ahead of blogger and anti-poverty campaigner Jack Monroe, who received Snowden’s victory was as clearcut as Chelsea Manning’s dartas year earlier. It’s strange to think now, but a little more than six months ago, virtually no one had heard of Snowden, and few people outside the US would have been able to maxre what the initials NSA stood for. Though internet privacy was beginning to emerge as an issuefew people had any idea of the extent librk which governments and their secretive auxiliaries were able to trawl, sift, collect and scrutinise the personal digital footprints of millions of private individuals.
All that changed in May when Snowden left Hawaii for Hong Kong, where he met Guardian journalists Glenn Greenwald and Ewen MacAskill, and independent filmmaker Laura Wars, and handed over materials that blew the lid on spying technologies, some of which were truly stranger than fiction: In so doing, Snowden certainly transformed his own life, and not for the better.
Forced waros go on the run, he ended up in Moscow where he carttas lives in a curious Julian Assange-like limbo, unable to move for fear of arrest, extradition to the US and a prosecution that would threaten a long jail sentence, if Manning’s term of 35 years is anything to go by. It is this personal sacrifice, as much as his revelations, that impressed most readers who voted for him.
Let’s face it, his life is over as even if he goes back to the US he will face decades in prison and the personal sacrifice he has made is immense. At every step, he has displayed an astonishing integrity and presence diriw mind.
He is a great American and international patriot. Some readers felt that the actions of m Greenpeace activists were as brave, if not braver, than Snowden’s. It’s an awful, brutal way of controlling females that carries significant health risks and it needs to end. I don’t feel the topic gets the attention it needs because of the nationalities that are usually involved in the practice.
To the National Security Agency analyst writing a briefing to his superiors, the situation was clear: The agency’s impressive arsenal of cable taps and sophisticated hacking attacks was not enough. What it really needed was a horde of undercover Orcs. That vision of spycraft sparked a concerted drive by the NSA and its UK sister agency GCHQ to infiltrate the massive communities playing online games, according to secret documents mii by whistleblower Im Snowden.
The agencies, the documents show, have built mass-collection capabilities against the Xbox Live console network, which boasts more than 48 million players.
Real-life agents have been deployed into virtual realms, from those Orc hordes in World of Warcraft to the human avatars of Second Life. There were attempts, too, to recruit potential informants from the games’ tech-friendly users. Online gaming is big business, attracting tens of millions of users world wide who inhabit their digital worlds as make-believe characters, living and competing with the avatars of other players. What the intelligence agencies feared, however, was that among these clans of innocent elves and goblins, terrorists were lurking.
Games, the analyst wrote “are an opportunity! According to the briefing notes, so many different US intelligence agents were conducting operations inside games that a “deconfliction” group was required to ensure they weren’t spying ce, or interfering with, each other.
If properly exploited, games could produce vast amounts of intelligence, according to the the NSA document. They could be used as a window for hacking xirie, to build pictures of people’s social networks through “buddylists and interaction”, to make approaches by undercover agents, and to obtain target identifiers such as profile photosgeolocation, and collection of communications.
The ability to extract communications from talk channels in games would be necessary, the NSA paper argued, because of the potential for them to be used to communicate anonymously: Second Life was enabling anonymous texts and planning to introduce voice calls, while game noticeboards could, it states, be used to share information didie the web addresses of terrorism forums.
Given that gaming consoles often include voice headsets, video cameras, and other identifiers, the potential for joining together biometric information with activities was also an exciting one. But the documents contain no indication that the surveillance ever foiled any terrorism plots, nor is there any clear evidence that terror groups were using the virtual communities wris communicate as the intelligence agencies confidently predicted.
The operations raise concerns about the privacy of gamers. It is unclear how the agencies accessed their data, or how many communications were collected. Nor is it clear how the NSA ensured that it was not monitoring innocent Americans whose identity and nationality may have been concealed behind their virtual avatar. The company’s executives did not respond to requests for comment.
The NSA declined to comment on the surveillance of games.
