A bomb has exploded on a Manhattan subway platform leaving four people injured in a suspected-Isil-inspired attack. The suspected bomber is Akayed Ullah, a 27-year-old Bangladeshi national who is thought to have lived in the US for seven years. Ullah, who lived in Brooklyn, was armed with a five-inch metal pipe bomb and battery pack as he walked through a midtown Manhattan transit hub, sources told the New York Post.

|Monday, December 11, 2017 - Dying polar bear roams iceless land for food in 'soul-crushing' video|
Heartbreaking footage of a starving polar bear desperately searching for food on iceless land highlights the “real face of climate change”, conservationists say. Photojournalist Paul Nicklen said his team were moved to tears as they captured the struggling animal’s battle to stay alive on Canada’s Baffin Island last summer. The “soul-crushing” scene, captured by marine conservationists SeaLegacy, shows the emaciated bear searching an abandoned Inuit camp for sustenance. “My entire SeaLegacy team was pushing through their tears and emotions while documenting this dying polar bear,” explained Mr Nicklen. “It’s a soul-crushing scene that still haunts me, but I know we need to share both the beautiful and the heartbreaking if we are going to break down the walls of apathy. This is what starvation looks like. The muscles atrophy. No energy. It’s a slow, painful death. Polar bears are listed as vulnerable due to a “loss of sea ice habitat from climate change” Credit: AP “When scientists say polar bears will be extinct in the next 100 years, I think of the global population of 25,000 bears dying in this manner. There is no band aid solution. There was no saving this individual bear. People think that we can put platforms in the ocean or we can feed the odd starving bear. “The simple truth is this - if the Earth continues to warm, we will lose bears and entire polar ecosystems. This large male bear was not old, and he certainly died within hours or days of this moment. But there are solutions. We must reduce our carbon footprint, eat the right food, stop cutting down our forests, and begin putting the Earth-our home-first.” His colleague Cristina Mittermeier said it was “one of the hardest shoots we have ever had to do”. “Through tears, we were able to capture this footage with the hope of awakening people to the realities of a climate change future,” she said. Polar bears are the poster child for climate change Credit: AP SeaLegacy said though it couldn’t say with 100 per cent certainty what had caused the bear to starve to death, the group added: “We do know that he didn’t have any visible wounds and that he was not an old bear. “Many of you have asked whether we could have saved this individual bear, but the hard truth is that he was on his last legs and his muscles had atrophied beyond repair. It would also have been illegal to feed him, to approach him, or to do anything to ease his pain.” The group warned an increasing number of polar bears are likely to die in this way “as a result of our warming climate”. “As global temperatures rise, the amount of multi-year sea ice in the Arctic shrinks. Polar bears depend on that ice to travel large distances and to hunt for their food. Without sea ice this will become a common scene across the Arctic,” they said. The World Wildlife Fund says polar bears are vulnerable due to a “loss of sea ice habitat from climate change”. A study published last year by University of Washington researchers found that polar bears across the Arctic are facing a shorter sea ice season, a surface they depend on for hunting, travelling and breeding.

|Monday, December 11, 2017 - Quality of fake 'supernotes' found in Seoul fan suspicions that North Korea is forging $100 bills|
Suspicions are growing that North Korea has resumed forging $100 dollar bills that are so realistic that they are virtually indistinguishable from genuine currency. It took a team of forgery specialists at South Korea's KEB Hana Bank to confirm that a single $100 bill found at a branch in Seoul in November was a fake. The discovery has triggered alarm because authorities have no idea how many similar "supernotes" - named because they are so similar to real banknotes - are now in circulation. While previous "supernotes" were dated either 2001 or 2003, the new forgeries are dated 2006 and are even more sophisticated in the ink, the printing processes and the material that they use. The forgeries also change colour when they are viewed from a different angle, just as genuine notes should, while the slightly rough texture of the note has also been accurately copied, a spokesman for Hana Bank told South Korea's Chosun Ilbo newspaper. The quality of the forgeries has immediately led to suspicion falling on North Korea, which has a track record of forging foreign banknotes in order to earn hard currency for the regime. Pyongyang is also in increasingly dire need of funds as international sanctions imposed due to the regime's ongoing development of nuclear weapons and long-range ballistic missiles begin to bite. North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un visiting Mount Paektu in Ryanggang Province Credit: AFP "It seems that whoever printed these supernotes has the facilities and high level of technology matching that of a government", Lee Ho-jung, a bank spokesman said. "They are made with special ink that changes colour depending on the angle, patterned paper and Intaglio printing that gives texture to the surface of a note". Another bank source told The Hankyoreh newspaper, "To print supernote-level forgeries, you need a minting corporation-level production line in place, which costs hundreds of billions of won. "This makes if difficult for ordinary criminal organisations to produce them". Earlier versions of supernotes have been around for at least 15 years, with US government officials estimating in 2006 that as much as $250 million worth of fake $100 bills could be in circulation worldwide. Case study | Counterfeit cash in the UK In recent years, Pyongyang appears to have scaled back its forging operation, which is reportedly overseen by the shadowy Division 39, although that may have changed given the pressure that the regime is now under. In the past, North Korea was believed to distribute the bills overseas through criminal groups and by transporting them abroad through the diplomatic pouch to embassies from where they could be slipped into circulation. In December 2011, the Irish High Court dismissed an application from the US to extradite Sean Garland, the alleged chief of staff of the Official Irish Republican Army, in connection with passing fake supernotes. Mr Garland had been observed travelling to Moscow and visiting the North Korean embassy in the company of a number of former KGB officials. Fake notes were later allegedly smuggled into Ireland and the UK and exchanged for pounds or other currencies.

Reuters was unable to identify the confidential informant or independently confirm the informant's information that was provided by Cummings.

The Tasmanian tiger was doomed long before humans began hunting the enigmatic marsupial, scientists said Tuesday, with DNA sequencing showing it was in poor genetic health for thousands of years before its extinction. Scientists genetically mapped the animal -- also known as a thylacine -- using the genome of a pup preserved more than a century ago in a jar. The research revealed the creature began to undergo a decline in genetic diversity more than 70,000 years ago, leaving it less resilient to environmental change even before Aborigines are believed to have first inhabited the continent 65,000 years ago.

|Monday, December 11, 2017 - Vladimir Putin announces Russian withdrawal from Syria during visit to airbase |
Vladimir Putin has said Russia will withdraw the bulk of its forces from Syria following the "successful intervention" in the conflict there. The announcement comes after the defence ministry said last week that Russia had “completely liberated” Syria from the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil), despite reports that the terrorist group still controls some remote territory there. Speaking to soldiers at Russia's Khmeimim airbase during his first trip to Syria, where he was welcomed by Syrian president Bashar al-Assad, Mr Putin said he was ordering the defence minister and head of the general staff to begin withdrawing Russian forces to their home bases. “In two-and-a-half years, Russia's military along with the Syrian army have defeated the most battle-worthy gang of international terrorists,” Mr Putin said. “In connection with this, I've made the decision that a significant part of the Russian military contingent located in the Syrian Arab Republic will return home to Russia.” VIDEO: Putin visits Russian troops at Syria’s #Khmeimim Airbase https://t.co/yX35LANrqSpic.twitter.com/DVXZdl5kHS— RT (@RT_com) 11 December 2017 Moscow will continue to operate the Khmeimim airbase as well as its naval base in Tartus and will crush any further terrorist activities in Syria, he said. “If the terrorists raise their head again, we will hit them with such strikes as they have never seen,” Mr Putin said. “We will never forget the casualties and losses that we suffered in the fight with terrorism here in Syria as well as at home in Russia.” Vladimir Putin with Bashar al-Assad during his visit at Hmeymim base Credit: Kremlin Press Office / Handout/Anadolu Agency/Getty Images The president told his troops they were “returning with victory” to their homeland and loved ones. Mr Putin's triumphant visit to Syria comes days after he said he would run for re-election in March, a vote that is expected to keep him in power until 2024, nearly as long as Joseph Stalin. He is expected to make Russia's more aggressive foreign policy and defiance of the West a centerpiece of his campaign. Assad welcomes Putin The leaders embrace on the tarmac Mr Putin also met with president Abdel Fattah al-Sisi in Egypt on Monday and was traveling on to Turkey to speak with president Recep Tayyip Erdogan as part of a strengthening of ties and the two countries. During the sit-down, Mr al-Sisi called for the Syria de-escalation zones established by Iran, Russia and Turkey to be expanded. Mr Putin said Russia was ready to resume flights to Egypt, which were suspended after the bombing of a Russian airliner on Halloween 2015. Russia has also been drafting an agreement to deploy warplanes to Egypt, further increasing its presence in the Middle East. Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said the Russian and Turkish leaders would discuss a political solution to the Syrian war. Mr Putin has met Mr Erdogan, who he once denounced as a backstabber after Turkey shot down a Russian plane in 2015, four times in the past two months. Vladimir Putin, left, and Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah el-Sisi, arrive for their talks in Cairo Credit: Alexander Zemlianichenko/AP Russia's casualties have been mounting in Syria as its ground presence grew from advisers and military contractors to include special forces this fall, although the exact number of deaths remains secret. In September, Russia's top military adviser was killed by a mortar strike, and two Russians who were reportedly working for a Russian private contractor were captured by Isil and executed in September. Read more | Escape from Isil Mr Putin announced an air campaign in September 2015 to support his ally, an intervention that has turned the tide of the war and positioned Russia as one of the most influential voices in talks to deterine Syria's future. Russia, Turkey and Iran have been holding rival negotiations to the Western-backed talks in Geneva. Al-Assad visited Sochi last month, hugging his Russian counterpart and thanking him for “Russia's efforts to save our country”. Mr Putin returned the gesture and hugged al-Assad when he disembarked his presidential plane in Syria on Monday.
