Haiti capital 'paralyzed' after unrest, PM still abroad

Haiti's capital was largely shut down Monday with residents only venturing out for essentials, AFP reporters witnessed, as authorities imposed a state of emergency after an attack on a prison freed thousands of inmates. As the latest crisis spiraled, Prime Minister Ariel Henry was still out of the country after a trip to Kenya to push for the deployment of a UN-backed multinational police mission to try to stabilize Haiti. The prison break came in a new wave of violence sweeping through Port-au-Prince, where armed gangs who control much of the city have wreaked havoc since last week. An AFP reporter said some locals were on the streets looking to buy water and fuel on the day after the state of emergency and a nighttime curfew were declared. Schools and banks were closed, and people sheltered for safety in schools, sports venues, gyms and public buildings, often without adequate toilets, health facilities or drinking water. «This morning the city is paralyzed,» Carlotta Pianigiani, a coordinator in Port-au-Prince for the Alima medical NGO, told AFP. «Public transport is practically at a standstill, private vehicles are rare and schools are closed. Some roads are also barricaded.» She said 15,000 people were displaced in weeks of recent unrest and that the largest public hospital suspended operation last week, adding that the situation was «already very tense.» - President assassinated - Gang leaders such as Jimmy Cherisier, known by the nickname Barbecue, say they are coordinating to oust Prime Minister Henry, who has led the troubled Caribbean nation since the assassination of president Jovenel Moise in 2021. About a dozen people died in the violence at the National Penitentiary in the capital on Saturday night, according to AFP reporters, with only a few of the estimated 3,800 inmates still inside. UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres expressed alarm at the «rapidly deteriorating security situation» and called for more funding for the planned international police mission. A spokesman for United States' State Department said that Henry was heading back from Kenya, adding «it's important that he do so, and that he be allowed to do so.» The Haitian government has vowed the security forces would take back control, but they are notoriously weak -- kidnapping and other violent crime is rampant, and gangs are often better armed than the police. Among those held in the jail over Moise's assassination were 17 Colombian mercenaries who chose not escape as their lives would be in danger, their lawyer said Monday. A gang was «waiting to execute them at the prison entrance,» Sondra Macollins told on Blu Radio in Bogota, adding the former soldiers were now detained in a police station. The Haitian news outlet Le Nouvelliste reported that the prison, located close to the National Palace, had been under surveillance by gangs using drones before the assault was launched. The UN Security Council in October approved an international police support mission to Haiti that Nairobi had agreed to lead, but a Kenyan court ruling has thrown its future into doubt. On Friday, Henry signed an accord in Nairobi with Kenyan President William Ruto on deploying the force. Haiti, the Western hemisphere's poorest nation, has been in turmoil for years, and the 2021 presidential assassination plunged the country further into chaos. No elections have taken place since 2016 and the presidency remains vacant. White House spokesman John Kirby told reporters Monday that the United States was monitoring the situation «with great concern.» © Agence France-Presse

Gaza 'powder keg' could spark wider war: UN rights chief

The Gaza war between Israel and Hamas is a «powder keg» with the potential to spark broader conflict in the Middle East, UN human rights chief Volker Turk said Monday. Turk said it was imperative to to take all possible measures to avoid a wider conflagration. «The war in Gaza has already generated dangerous spillover in neighbouring countries,» he said in his global update to the United Nations Human Rights Council. «I am deeply concerned that in this powder keg, any spark could lead to a much broader conflagration. This would have implications for every country in the Middle East and many beyond it.» He said that overlapping emergencies made the spectre of spillover conflict very real, and cited the examples of Yemen and Lebanon as places where the Gaza war is having a wider effect. «The military escalation in southern Lebanon between Israel, Hezbollah and other armed groups is extremely worrying,» Turk said. The UN high commissioner for human rights said almost 200 people had been killed in Lebanon and some 90,000 internally displaced. There was also extensive damage to health facilities, schools and vital infrastructure. «Incidents in which civilians, including children, paramedics and journalists, have been killed in attacks must be fully investigated,» said Turk. Some 80,000 people have also been displaced from areas in northern Israel along the country's border with Lebanon, he added. «It is imperative to do everything possible to avoid a wider conflagration,» he said. - Yemen concerns - The Gaza war began after the October 7 attack by Hamas, which resulted in the deaths of about 1,160 people in Israel, according to an AFP tally of Israeli figures. The Palestinian militants also took hostages, 130 of whom remain in Gaza. Israel's retaliatory bombardment and ground offensive in Gaza have killed more than 30,000 people in under five months, most of them women and children, according to the territory's Hamas-run health ministry. Yemen's Iran-backed Huthi rebels have been targeting Red Sea shipping for months in protest at the war in Gaza. The Huthis, who control much of war-torn Yemen, say they are attacking Israeli-linked shipping in solidarity with Palestinians in the beseiged territory. The unrest has forced several companies to reroute shipments in the commercially vital waterway, driving up delivery times and costs. The United States, Israel's key ally, has led reprisal strikes on Huthi targets in Yemen in a bid to quash the attacks. Turk said the Huthi attacks had not only disrupted global maritime trade but had driven up the price of goods, which has had a significant impact on developing countries. «There is a serious risk of the conflict extending to Yemen itself, with potentially severe harm to Yemen's people, already suffering from the humanitarian crisis generated by a decade of war,» he said. © Agence France-Presse

Team Seychelles prepares to leave for African Games in Ghana, aiming for the best 

Team Seychelles received its sending-off for the upcoming African Games from March 8 to 23, in a ceremony on Monday at the Berjaya Beau Vallon Bay resort. The ceremony was low-key since many athletes were in overseas competitions or training. Those present received encouragement from the Minister for Youth, Sports and Family, Marie-Celine Zialor.   «We will not be going to the African Games for experience. Our athletes know the taste of African Games medals,» said Zialor in her address. Seychelles will take part in seven sporting disciplines, namely athletics, boxing, judo, badminton, swimming, weightlifting and volleyball. Zialor told participants to «carry Seychelles in your mind, carry Seychelles in your heart, and do your best. If you cannot win a medal, look for a personal best and no matter what result you come back with, we will encourage you.» A group of officials are already in Ghana, including the delegation's head, Lucas Georges. The first delegation of athletes will leave on Tuesday, including athletes for the judo, weightlifting, volleyball and swimming competitions. Another delegation will leave on March 10 with athletes from athletics and boxing and other athletes that are currently abroad will meet up with the delegation in Ghana. Athletes parade in the uniforms that will be used during the Games. (Seychelles News Agency) Photo License: CC-BY  One of the athletes heading directly to Ghana from the overseas competition is the newly crowned Seychelles' Sportsman of the Year, boxer Keddy Agnes, who will also be the Seychelles flag bearer. In his absence, another gold medal-winning boxer in the last Indian Ocean Island Games (IOIG), Dasheil Fanchette, accepted the Seychelles flag from the minister on his behalf. This will be Fanchette's first appearance at the tournament, after bursting onto the scene during last year's IOIG. «This is a big tournament, especially for a first time for me, but in all competitions that I go to, the aim is to win a medal,» he said, adding that despite not having extensive preparations, he and his colleagues will be looking to do their best in Ghana. While this will be the first African Games appearance for Fanchette, for weightlifter Clementina Agricole, this competition is not new. She won bronze medals twice in 2007 and 2015. She is the only weightlifter participating in the event. «For me, I am a bit disappointed as we have not had any preparations, but I will be trying to do my best. I don't have any big expectations,» said Agricole. Seychelles' weightlifting is mired in controversy, with several unconfirmed reports stating that some of their athletes have tested positive for banned substances. No official confirmation has been announced.    Another athlete making her first appearance at the games is swimmer Aaliyah Palestrini, who said, «the training sessions have been quite good, and although I think it will be tough, I will try to do my best.» This is the second time in history that the Africa Games games will be decentralised and three cities in Ghana, the organising country, will host the event. The cities are Accra, Kumasi, and Cape Coast. Seychelles remains hopeful because in the last edition of the African Games in Morocco in August 2019, Team Seychelles won two golds, one silver, and one bronze medal. All the medals were won by swimmer Felicity Passon, who will not be part of Team Seychelles this time. The African Games is a continental multi-sport event held every four years, organised by the African Union with the Association of National Olympic Committees of Africa and the Association of African Sports Confederations. All of the competing nations are from the African continent. The 13th African Games previously known, as the All-Africa Games, will see the participation of 53 nations.

Vice President reaffirmed Seychelles' non-aligned stance in international conflicts

Seychelles' Vice President Ahmed Afif has reaffirmed the country's non-aligned position when answering a private notice question in the National Assembly on Tuesday. The question was brought forth by the Leader of the Opposition, Sebastien Pillay, asking who took the decision for Seychelles to form part of US-led Operation Prosperity Guardian in the Red Sea and what kind of consultation was done before the decision was taken. Afif said the decision was taken by the government as per its executive powers, which it has been mandated to have. «We know very well that where national security is concerned in a dynamic and sensitive environment, the security element remains confidential and the state is not obligated to consult anyone,» he said. The participation of Seychelles in the mission was announced by the United States Secretary of Defence, Lloyd Austin, on December 19 in Bahrain and got many adverse reactions from concerned citizens. Following this, the islands' government said that it was participating as part of its membership of the Combined Maritime Forces (CMF) that was set up in 2009 after several pirate attacks in the Indian Ocean. Its aim is to promote security, stability and prosperity across approximately 2.5 million square miles of international waters, which encompass some of the world's most important shipping lanes. Several task forces were also created to address different issues including piracy, narcotics and illegal trafficking among others. Seychelles, an archipelago in the western Indian Ocean, has been a member of the CMF since 2012. A question was raised on whether Seychelles' participation in Operation Prosperity Guardian is tarnishing the image and the sovereignty of the island nation. The Vice President said Seychelles' image is that it is a non-aligned country and its position in several conflicts is clear, including the one in the Middle East. «We are against atrocities against any civilians. We have the same position on the war between Ukraine and Russia, we are against any invasion and we promote peace,» he added. He added that when Seychelles joined the Combined Maritime Force, «the government said that there might be a risk for Seychelles but we stand by our principles. Our principle is to protect our maritime route and we protect the road that brings food to Seychelles.» He added that in this operation Seychelles does not have airplanes, boats, or manpower but its operation includes intelligence sharing and receiving. «We are part of the international community and there is a risk in everything we do but it must be a balanced risk and it is for this reason that here in Seychelles we have entities whose roles are to evaluate those risks and keep the government updated. We also take measures to ensure that our country remains safe and sound and that we protect our citizens. Do not forget that another security element is to ensure that food reaches us at an affordable price,» he explained.

'Safety must come first': Speed limit of PMAs to be cut to 6kmh, says MOT

Some consider them a menace on the roads - but the use of Personal Mobility Aids (PMAs) are also how some make ends meet. For 51-year-old delivery rider Hu, her mobility scooter isn't just how she earns a living. It's also how she goes about her life, whether getting groceries or just going around her neighbourhood. But it seems change is on the horizon for Hu - during the debates in Parliament on Tuesday (March 5), Senior Parliamentary Secretary for Transport Baey Yam Keng shared multiple changes to regulations for PMAs that will come into effect around 2025. This includes a reduction in speed limit from 10kmh to 6kmh, an update in dimension restrictions and a stipulation that only those with medical needs can use PMAs. Speaking with AsiaOne, Hu shared that she has become quite reliant on her PMA after purchasing it two years ago. She had been working as a cleaning supervisor until she accidentally breathed in acidic chemicals at work, leaving her hospitalised. Since then, her asthma would occasionally flare up, causing breathing difficulties.

'I feel I'm the reason they died': 9 killed in air strike on Gaza kitchen co-run by Singapore charity

SINGAPORE — When he was informed that a reported Israeli air strike killed nine people working in a Gazan kitchen jointly run by the charitable organisation he founded, Singaporean Gilbert Goh's heart sank. The 62-year-old, who is behind Love Aid Singapore, has been working to raise funds for kitchens operating in the Jabalia and Rafah refugee camps since January, working in tandem with the International Relief Organisation (IRO), which ran them. These kitchens prepared hot meals for displaced Palestinians, but after the air strike on Jabalia camp on March 2, their activities have been put on hold. Goh told The Straits Times in a phone call from Cairo on March 4 that he was devastated when he received the news the previous day. «This is the first time that I've been involved in a humanitarian mission where the people I work with have been killed,» he said. «It's been a huge shock. You just don't expect the people you work with to die, even though I know this is the kind of thing that will happen in a war.»
