Light News

Ecuador troops rescue president from rebel cops
Ecuadorean President Rafael Correa emerged triumphant6 after troops stormed a hospital in Quito and freed him from protesting police.
He was attacked by officers demonstrating against cuts to their bonuses and frozen promotions7 when he tried to talk to them. Then outside the hospital, the police fired tear gas at his supporters before troops moved in.
Sitting in the yellow room of the national palace, Correa addressed the nation on national television after troops returned him to the palace. He condemned8 the perpetrators and vowed9 to punish them.
He also accused his rivals of trying to topple him in a coup10.
"They took television installations, they took police barracks, they intended to take military barracks-- don't be fooled: this was a failed attempt at a coup and what they accomplished11 was that we come out stronger, more determined12 and more united than ever. We will overcome comrade."
The local Red Cross said two police officers died as troops stormed the building. At least 88 people were injured throughout the rebellion.
Ecuador has a history of political instability.Before 2006 when Rafael Correa became president there had been eight presidents in ten years.

Dozens of NATO oil tankers attacked in Pakistan
Suspected militants in southern Pakistan have destroyed at least 27 tankers carrying fuel for Nato forces in Afghanistan.
There have been hundreds of similar attacks in Pakistan in recent years, but this is the first one in this part of the southern province of Sindh.
It is not clear if it is linked to a cross-border air strike by Nato that killed three Pakistani troops.
Pakistan has blocked a vital supply route to Afghanistan after the latest air raid.
It is the third time in less than a week that NATO choppers in pursuit of militants behind attacks on coalition13 bases have crossed over the Pakistani border and fired on targets.
Pakistan's foreign ministry14 spokesman, Abdul Basit spoke15 at a news conference in Islamabad.
"There are reports of missiles fired on our post in Kurram agency, killing16 three soldiers. Our authorities are investigating. As a result of our strong (word unclear: sounds like "demarches", probably means representations) -- as you pointed17 out (to a reporter present) -- to NATO this week, we were assured ISAF/ NATO will strictly18 abide19 by its mandate20 and not infringe21 on Pakistan sovereignty. We are investigating the matter and rest assured that we'll protect our sovereignty in all circumstances."
Pakistan says it considering its response if NATO continues to violate its sovereignty.

US slaps sanctions on Iranian company
The United States has slapped sanctions on a Swiss-based Iranian company involved in Iran's oil and gas sector22 in an attempt to get tough on Iran's nuclear program.
The US State Department placed the Naftiran Intertrade Company, a subsidiary of Iran's national oil company, on a financial blacklist, barring it from doing business with or in the United States or with US institutions.
At the same time, it spared four large European multinationals23 from penalties because of their pledges to stop investing in Iran's energy sector.
Deputy Secretary of State James Steinberg.
"In addition to imposing24 sanctions on NICO, four major international oil companies - Total of France, Statoil of Norway, ENI of Italy and Royal Dutch Shell of the United Kingdom and the Netherlands - have pledged to end their investments in Iran's energy sector. By making this pledge, companies are eligible25 to avoid sanctions under the so-called special rule in CISADA that is designed to encourage companies with activity in Iran to withdraw."
It will be the first direct U.S. move against firms involved in Iran's energy sector since the passage of new sanctions in July.
Tehran insists its nuclear program is for purely26 peaceful purposes, but major Western powers fear it is a cover for an atomic weapons program and have vowed to stop it.

Chile Miners' families file lawsuit27 demanding $US10m from the mining co.
Relatives of 27 of the 33 miners trapped since early August in a Chilean gold and copper28 mine are to file a lawsuit for 10 million US dollars from the company that runs the mine.
The families accuse the owners of the San Esteban mining company, Alejandro Bohn and Marcel Kemeny, of negligence29 and violation30 of safety regulations.
The same families are also demanding nearly two million US dollars from Chile's government for allegedly failing to enforce safety regulations.
Edgardo Reinoso is the lawyer representing the families.
"With this lawsuit we intend that the main and guilty party be made responsible for this tragedy that has shocked not only our own country but the whole world and especially workers all around the world. Let the plight31 of those miners be a lesson, so that things like that never happen again in our country."
Relatives of the remaining six miners whose families have not joined the legal action have yet to decide whether to take similar action.

Global cybercrime schemed exposed in New York
Authorities in New York arrested more than 60 defendants32 allegedly involved in a global cyber crime scheme. The group used internet viruses to steal over 3 million dollars from U.S. bank accounts.
Unnamed hackers33 based in Eastern Europe hijacked34 bank accounts by using malaware, a software code which can harm computers and steal user passwords.
Preet Bharara, the US Attorney for the southern district of New York, says technology plays a new role in bank vulnerability.  
"As today's arrests show, the modern high-tech35 bank heist does not require a gun, a mask, a note or a get-a-way car. It requires only the internet and ingenuity36, and it can be accomplished in the blink of an eye with just the click of a mouse,"
London's Metropolitan37 Police arrested 19 people on September 28th in a similar case. Bharara would not comment on whether or not the two cases were connected.
