Pakistan to continue import of LNG from Qatar

A Pakistani cabinet minister says Islamabad will continue to import liquefied natural gas (LNG) from Qatar under a 15-year agreement, despite the severing of diplomatic ties with Qatar by Saudi Arabia and some other countries.

Shahid Khaqan Abbasi, the federal minister for Petroleum and Natural Resources, said Qatar and Pakistan last year signed a $1 billion agreement, under which Qatar's Liquefied Gas Company Limited will sell LNG from 2016 to year 2031 to state-run Pakistan State Oil.

He said since no sanctions have been imposed on Qatar by the United Nations, Pakistan and Qatar were bound to abide by the agreement.

Qatar has released an initial report into the alleged hack of its state-run news agency, an incident which helped spark a diplomatic crisis between the energy-rich country and Arab nations.

The Qatari Interior Ministry said late Wednesday that the website of the Qatar News Agency was initially hacked in April with "high techniques and innovative methods."

It said hackers installed a file and then published a fake news item attributed to Qatar's emir, Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, just after midnight May 24.

The ministry did not say who it suspected carried out the attack. It also thanked the FBI and the British National Commission for Combating Crime for assisting it in its investigation.

The alleged fake news item, which had Sheikh Tamim making controversial comments on Iran and Israel, immediately was picked up by Saudi and Emirati media, laying the groundwork for the crisis that began Monday (05.06.2017.)

Kuwait's emir has traveled to Qatar and met that country's leader as part of his efforts to mediate an end to a crisis that's seen Arab nations cut ties to the energy-rich country and attempt to isolate it.

Kuwait's Sheikh Sabah Al Ahmad Al Sabah was met planeside by Qatar's emir, Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, when he arrived on Wednesday night.

The two held talks, though details of their discussions were not released. Sheikh Sabah earlier Wednesday traveled to Dubai where he met with Abu Dhabi's Crown Prince Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan and Dubai's ruler Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, who also serves as prime minister and vice president of the UAE.

Sheikh Sabah also has traveled to Saudi Arabia in his efforts.

Algeria faces prospect of president seeking fifth term

With no clear successor to longtime President Abdelaziz Bouteflika, Algerians may well see their frail leader who rarely appears in public cling on for a fifth term in office. When Bouteflika came to power in 1999, he won the backing of his conflict-weary citizens who credited him with bringing about reconciliation after a fierce civil war. Nearly two decades on and with a presidential election scheduled for next year, the 81-year-old leader shows little sign of leaving office despite his ailing health. «As long as God keeps him alive, Bouteflika will definitely seek a fifth term,» said Mohamed Hennad, political science professor at the University of Algiers. There has been constant speculation about the health of the president -- and even rumours of his death -- who suffered a stroke in 2013 that saw him spend three months in a French hospital. ...

New band - Zilwa Tribe - promoting Creole sega music in Australia

A new band, Zilwa Tribe, promoting Creole sega music from the Indian Ocean islands is creating a rave in Melbourne, Australia. Zilwa -- which translates to islander -- brings musicians from Seychelles, Mauritius and Rodrigues together. Seychellois Pat Barallon, a founding member of the band, said the group was formed earlier this year to unite the island nations of the Indian Ocean and their rich Creole culture. “It is also aimed at bringing all the Indian Ocean island nations together to deliver live Creole sega music to Australia’s diverse multi-cultural communities, with the purpose of filling a big void in Australia for the Creole kids known as the next generation,” said Barallon, who is also the band manager. According to Barallon, Jonathan De Robillard, from Mauritius, came up with the name Zilwa as it relates to a past experience with the Chagossian people losing their roots and identities. ...
