bounty affair: trump rejects new reports

US president donald trump has denied explosive media reports about alleged russian bounty on US soldiers in afghanistan.

"The russia bounty story is just another fake news made up story told only to hurt me and the republican party," trump wrote on twitter wednesday morning. Trump likes to pejoratively call anti-government media outlets like the new york times "fake news".

"The secret source may not even exist, just like the story itself," trump further tweeted. He asked the "new york times" to reveal its sources. "Just another duck!"A little later, he added that he had not been briefed on the matter because the possible intelligence information had not been backed up by further intelligence.

Ten left-wing conditions for a red-red-green coalition

Ten left-wing conditions for a red-red-green coalition

This would include a statutory minimum wage of ten euros, an increase in the hartz IV rate to 500 euros, the abolition of retirement at 67, and a ban on foreign deployments of the german armed forces and on arms exports. "Anyone who wants our support for a governing alliance must stand on the ground of these goals," reads a paper from the party leadership to be presented to a party convention in berlin on monday.

The left’s campaign for a red-red-green government has so far met with rejection, especially from the SPD. Left-wing leader bernd riexinger now calls on unions to mediate. "They could invite the SPD, the left and the greens to a round table," he told the "rheinische post" (saturday). "The policy change that the unions are promoting reads like the immediate program of a red-red-green federal government."

The left-wing paper with ten "core objectives of a change of policy", which was made available to the dpa news agency and from which the "passauer neue presse" also quoted, summarizes already known positions. To this end, pay a minimum pension of 1.050 euros and an equalization of pensions in east and west by 2017. The top tax rate is to be raised to 53 percent and high wealth taxed.

After corpse found near schnaitsee: son had an accomplice

After the violent death of a 53-year-old woman from the upper bavarian district of traunstein, a second suspect has been arrested. The 19-year-old was a friend of the woman's one-year-old son, who is a prime suspect, police said on friday.

The son had already admitted the act in his first interrogation. A warrant of arrest was issued against him on friday. In the course of the investigation, there were indications that another man was involved, the police said.

Nothing is known so far about the possible motive for the crime. It still requires extensive investigations, until over the exact course of events and the motive statements could be made, it hewed. The investigation of the traces by the "ermittlungsgruppe schonung" could drag on for weeks. The only thing that seems clear at the moment is that the woman had already been killed in her apartment in september. She had been missing since then.

Pope ends diplomatically delicate asian trip in bangladesh

Pope francis visited a home for orphans and sick people of the mother teresa foundation in bangladesh on the last day of his asia trip. After that, he gave another free speech in the capital dhaka, "so that we don’t get bored," as the pontifex joked in a nearby church.

"I don’t know if that (free speech) is better or worse, but i promise you it will be less boring," quipped the pontifex. Then he warned against the "terrorism" of the gossip. "How many religious communities have been destroyed because of the spirit of gossip," the catholic leader said. "Please stay on your tongues."

The last stop in dhaka before the pope’s flight to rome was a meeting with young people from a catholic school. The visit to myanmar and bangladesh was primarily focused on the rohingya refugee crisis. Hundreds of thousands of myanmar’s minority muslims have fled to bangladesh.

Police catch horse thief

police catch horse thief

The success is not least due to the cooperation of the police station schluchtern with the police inspection bad bruckenau.
A tip-off from a slaughterhouse in gutersloh had set the ball rolling. The traders were on 16. February two horses were offered for sale. However, since the animals were freshly shod, he became suspicious and refused the purchase. He took down the license plate numbers of the seller’s tractor and trailer and called in the police.
The investigation finally led the police to a 36-year-old man from the district of bad kissingen, who was on the road in his car with a schweinfurt license plate. As luck would have it, on monday of this week at 13:00 p.M., a bad bruckenau patrol crew came across a fir tree.44 o’clock the train vehicle at a traffic light in the kissinger strabe in bad bruckenau up, when it had to wait there with red light. The officers were able to stop the vehicle in the leimbachstrabe and arrest the driver – the aforementioned 36-year-old cattle handler.
He immediately admitted the thefts in motte and herolz. In the meantime, he had sold the animals to a horse dealer in hullhorst (north rhine-westphalia). There, the police were able to seize the four horses and hand them over to their overjoyed owners. The animals are well.
The horse thief had to be released after questioning and police interrogation because he did not meet the requirements for an arrest warrant. He had additional bad luck, however, that the license plates of his vehicle were misappropriated and originally issued for another vehicle. He now has to answer not only for horse theft, but also for forgery of documents, among other things. Criminal involvement of the horse trader from hullhorst is still under investigation.

Lawsuit against telekom-borsengang rejected

Lawsuit against telekom-borsengang rejected

As in the far more serious pre-trial case, the frankfurt higher regional court has also dismissed the test case against the former state-owned company’s second borrower in 1999. The 23. Civil jury could find no errors in the borsen prospectus.

The judges also ruled that the controversial partial group valuation of around 12,000 telekom properties in the opening balance sheet was legal. The properties were later valued much lower. The OLG assumes an error in estimation of about twelve percent, which is absolutely within the legal range for expert opinions.

The 150 or so plaintiffs had bought T-shares in 1999 and later suffered heavy price losses. They are asking for about 10 million euros in damages because they felt they had been swindled by the stockbroker’s prospectus. In the preliminary proceedings for the third borsengang from the year 2000, the damages are as high as 80 million euros.
