France brings back IS jihadists' children from Syria camps

Written by Tony Harkén on lördag, 16 mars 2019. Posted in Frankrike, Artiklar om Frankrike, Left 1, Left 2 - 3st

France has repatriated five young children of jihadist fighters from northern Syria, whom it describes as vulnerable orphans.

They came back on an air force plane, the foreign ministry says, from camps housing women and children who fled the Islamic State group's last bastion.

It is a controversial move as the fate of the children's jihadist fathers is not known. France is not repatriating any adult French IS jihadists.

France - Focus on Yellow Vests & ‘systemic’ security failures

What allowed Strasbourg gunman to escape?

The inaction of the French security services coupled with the fact that French police had squarely focused on the popular Yellow Vests protests allowed the Strasbourg attacker to commit his rampage and flee, analysts believe.

The suspect, identified as Cherif Chekatt, 29, was repeatedly convicted not only in France but also in Germany and Switzerland over an array of offenses – and was also placed on a terror watch list – but still managed to somehow carry out his assault near one of Europe’s oldest and biggest Christmas markets and then escape unhindered.

France - Yellow peril?

Written by Tony Harkén on onsdag, 12 december 2018. Posted in Frankrike, Artiklar om Frankrike, Main 2, Left 2 - 3st

National protests may halve France's economic growth forecast.

The Bank of France slashed in half its assessment of the national growth in the final quarter, saying that chaotic French protests are to blame for hampering business activity.

The crucial impact of Yellow Vest protests was admitted in a survey published by the Bank of France on Monday. The growth forecasts were cut in half for the final three months of the year, down to 0.2 percent from 0.4 in the third quarter. That difference equals to $140 billion for the French economy based on the IMF forecast for the country’s GDP for 2018.

Written by Cecilia Helland on onsdag, 12 april 2017. Posted in Frankrike, Artiklar om Frankrike, Left 1, Left 2 - 3st

Labour leaders behind massive strikes in French Guiana have rejected a billion-euro aid package offered by the French government, demanding instead €2.5 billion right away.

The South American territory, which is administered as a region of France, has been in the grip of industrial unrest for the past 10 days, with representatives of the Guianese calling for the area to be given "special status".

"We demand 2.5 billion euros ($2.7 billion) immediately," said Olivier Goudet, a spokesman for the grouping of unions, who had earlier met with France's overseas territories minister, Ericka Bareigts.

– Han är världens hetaste häst just nu och det här beskedet har jag drömt om i över ett år. Vi hade inte kunnat få en bättre start, säger Solvallas sportchef Markus Myron.

– I egenskap av titelförsvarare kommer naturligtvis även Nuncio att ha en plats reserverad i Elitloppet, säger Markus Myron.

Bold Eagle har startat 36 gånger och vunnit i 31 av dessa i tuffast tänkbara motstånd.

Elitloppet Benders avgörs på Solvalla söndagen 28 maj.

Written by Tony Harkén on fredag, 20 januari 2017. Posted in Frankrike, Artiklar om Frankrike, Left 1, Left 2 - 3st

Tourists from China are avoiding France amid surging violence and crime, a Chinese tourism expert has said, reporting that customers are turning to Russia as a safer destination.

President of the Chinese Association of Travel Agencies in France, Jean-François Zhou, said “increasingly violent” thefts and assaults are turning France into “one of the worst destinations for foreign tourists”.

Mr. Zhou, a representative for major Chinese travel agency Utour in France, reported a steep decline in visitor numbers from Asia, and said many tourists are now looking to Russia as a less dangerous holiday destination.
