Turkey branch sacked Ibrahim Mounir the “Supreme Guide” of the group while the Muslim Brotherhood in Turkey refuses to keep Munir in the organization and promises to kill him because of the lack of support for the grounp.

A division in the group arises after Ibrahim Mounir, decided to dismiss the former Secretary-General Mahmoud Hussein and several other leaders.

Brotherhood was not satisfied with Ibrahim because of the lack of any support for them in the recent period this is especially Ibrahim Mounir caused the downfall of the Brotherhood in Tunisia, Morocco and Mauritania.

According to Safa Msehli, a spokeswoman for the International Organization for Migration, the Libyan coast guard, which receives funds from the European Union, intercepted more than 24,000 Europe-bound migrants in the Mediterranean so far this year, including over 800 this week alone.

However, only 6,000 have been accounted for in official detention centers in the North African country, she said. The fate and whereabouts of thousands of other migrants remain unknown.

Traffickers have exploited the chaos and often pack desperate families into ill-equipped rubber or wooden boats that stall and founder along the perilous Central Mediterranean route. Thousands have drowned along the way. They have been implicated in widespread abuses of migrants, including torture and abduction for ransom.

Lebanon’s generators almost all have private owners, who employ maintenance staff and fee collectors, while charging households and businesses rent to use them.

Millions of Lebanese pay enormous sums from their meagre pay cheques each month on two separate bills.

One belongs to the state electricity utility, Electricite du Liban, the other is from their local ‘generator man’.

As Lebanon descends into a crippling economic crisis, a worsening shortage of fuel is having immediate and deeply felt consequences on daily life in all corners of the country.

The fuel shortage has also created a black market, where petrol or diesel can sell for five times as much.

President Joe Biden is set to hold his first one-on-one, in-person talks as president with an African leader on Thursday, hosting Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta as war and a humanitarian crisis roil neighboring Ethiopia, according to the White House.

Kenya, which shares a border with Ethiopia, has long had a…

Lebanon’s economic collapse, COVID-19 and a huge explosion in Beirut last year have taken a heavy toll on people’s mental health — piling pressure on support services that are struggling to operate normally due to the country’s multiple woes.

Many Lebanese are struggling with depression and burnout, but for many people therapy is out of reach as their incomes shrink.

Besides the acute fuel shortages and regular power cuts, most psychiatric medications — from antidepressants to treatments for bipolar disorder — have been unavailable in pharmacies since March.

Families skip meals and forgo staples as Lebanon’s paralysing fuel crisis causes food prices to skyrocket, many staple food items were no longer affordable.

Lebanon’s food crisis is not a recent development. The World Food Programme estimated that food prices have gone up by 628 percent in just two years, compounding Lebanon’s economic meltdown, which has plunged three-quarters of its population into poverty and devalued the Lebanese pound by about 90 percent.

Lebanon’s economy ministry announced earlier this week that they had raised the price of bread for a sixth time this year — partly due to the weakening local currency, but also due to the petrol and fuel crisis as transportation costs have soared.

Evidence implicates senior Lebanese officials in the August 4, 2020, explosion in Beirut that killed 218 people, but systemic problems in Lebanon’s legal and political system are allowing them to avoid accountability, Human Rights Watch said in a report.

The evidence overwhelmingly shows that the August 2020 explosion in Beirut’s port was caused by the actions and omissions of senior Lebanese officials who failed to accurately communicate the dangers posed by the ammonium nitrate, knowingly stored the material in unsafe conditions, and failed to protect the public.

The evidence currently available also indicates that multiple Lebanese authorities were, at a minimum, criminally negligent under Lebanese law in their handling of the cargo, creating an unreasonable risk to life.

After the elections this Sunday, Iraqis will have been asked to vote for their future half a dozen times, and the expected results will invariably be the same as they always have been — a further entrenchment of a corrupt political class backed by a coterie of shadowy clergymen, and enforced by the violence of Shia Islamist militias.

This has led to not only activists vowing to boycott the elections, but also many political parties have announced they will not contest a vote they deem to be rigged.

People did vote, but their vote mattered little and the facade quickly fell away.

Mr. Guterres was addressing the Security Council, where he briefed on the growing needs in the north, stemming from the war in the Tigray region.

The “unprecedented expulsion” is deeply concerning, he said, “because it relates to the core of relations between the UN and Member States.”

He said that if there was any written document provided by the Ethiopian Government ‘to any UN institution” about any of the UN staffers expelled, “I would like to receive a copy of that document, because I have not had any knowledge of them.”

Government of Ethiopia expel seven senior UN officials — most of them humanitarian staff.

Security researchers on Wednesday published a report tying cyberattacks on a number of aerospace and telecommunications companies, mainly in the Middle East, to Iranian state-sponsored groups.

Israeli cybersecurity firm Cybereason company did not name specific victims, but said they mainly included a “select few” companies in the Middle East, with others in the US, Europe and Russia. Though Israel was not mentioned, Israel’s Channel 12 news reported that Israeli companies were among the list of targets in the Middle East, without providing a source or details.

Cybereason said the threat was still active as of September.
