  • Nice attacker had accomplices and plotted for months, French prosecutors allege

    A terrorist who killed more than 80 people in Nice on Bastille Day had several accomplices and planned the atrocity for months, according to French prosecutors. A married Albanian couple, two French-Tunisian men, and a Tunisian man are accused by anti-terrorism judges of aiding attacker Mohamed Lahouaiej-Bouhlel, the Telegraph reported. French-Tunisian Bouhlel killed 84 people and injured more than 300 when he drove a truck and fired a pistol into crowds on July 14. He was later shot dead by police. A search of Bouhlel’s computer and cell phone revealed photos of the Bastille Day fireworks in Nice last year. Prosecutors believe Boulel planned the attack for up to a year. Bouhlel searched for information about the amphetamine-like drug Captagon, reportedly used by jihadists to reduce fe...

    A guilty verdict for resisting arrest had been expected for the husband of a woman stopped for wearing a face-covering niqab in a Parisian suburb last year. The police had allegedly handled a young couple of French converts, and the woman's mother, so roughly that it sparked two nights of riots. But the odds changed when one of the arresting officers was indicted last week for making Islamophobic comments on Facebook. And then the courtroom was shocked by a surprise witness who contradicted the officers' claim that the defendant tried to strangle an officer. The witness said she felt compelled to testify that the defendant was cooperative and peaceful the entire time. The French media has seized upon the case as an example of religious sentiment overriding French law. But what appears to b...

A terrorist who killed more than 80 people in Nice on Bastille Day had several accomplices and planned the atrocity for months, according to French prosecutors. A married Albanian couple, two French-Tunisian men, and a Tunisian man are accused by anti-terrorism judges of aiding attacker Mohamed Lahouaiej-Bouhlel, the Telegraph reported. French-Tunisian Bouhlel killed 84 people and injured more than 300 when he drove a truck and fired a pistol into crowds on July 14. He was later shot dead by police. A search of Bouhlel’s computer and cell phone revealed photos of the Bastille Day fireworks in Nice last year. Prosecutors believe Boulel planned the attack for up to a year. Bouhlel searched for information about the amphetamine-like drug Captagon, reportedly used by jihadists to reduce fear and tiredness. A Facebook message sent on April 4 by suspect Choukri C. told Bouhlel: “Fill up the truck with 2,000 tons of iron and screw [them], cut the brakes and my friend I'll watch”, the Telegraph reported. Prosecutors allege the Albanian couple supplied the pistol to suspect Ramzi A, who then gave it to Bouhlel. French police found seven ounces of cocaine and 2,500 euros in cash at the home of Ramzi A. A police search at the home of one of Ramzi A’s associates found an AK-47 assault rifle and ammunition. Surveillance footage shows Tunisian national Choukri C. with Bouhlel in the truck before the attack, according to prosecutors. Photos of the two and of suspect Mohamed Walid G. inside the truck were also found on Bouhlel’s phone. Although ISIS claimed responsibility for the attack, prosecutors said they have found no direct link between Bouhlel and the terrorist group. ----------------------------------------­­---------------------------------------­-­---------------- Next Animation Studio’s News Direct service provides daily, high-quality, informative 3D news animations that fill in for missing footage and help viewers understand breaking news stories or in-depth features on science, technology, and health.

Pan of Vasseur walking STORYLINE: French prosecutors have opened an investigation into Apple over revelations it secretly slowed down older versions of its handsets. The Paris prosecutor's office said on Tuesday that a preliminary probe was opened last week over alleged "deception and planned obsolescence" of some Apple products. It's led by the French body in charge of fraud control which is part of the finance ministry. It follows a legal complaint filed in December by a French consumer rights group that aims to stop intentional obsolescence of goods by companies. In France it is illegal to intentionally shorten the lifespan of a product in order to encourage customers replace it. A 2015 law makes it a crime, with penalties of up to two years in prison and fines of up to five percent of the company's annual turnover. Apple apologized in December for secretly slowing down older iPhones, a move it said was necessary to avoid unexpected shutdowns related to battery fatigue.

So he profited from insider information and he enriched himself while others in the market didn't have this kind of information. That is insider trading by law. The problem, which explains the huge fall in the shares of Lagardere today, is an image problem.

Current EADS CEO Louis Gallois played down the findings, calling them preliminary. But confirmed insider trading would be another blow to the Franco-German consortium whose plane-maker Airbus has been struggling in its fierce competition with US rival Boeing Company. The Financial Markets Authority (AMF) sent Paris prosecutors a preliminary note on its investigation so far because "the law requires us to do this once the facts are likely to be qualified as criminal," a spokeswoman for the regulator said. Judicial officials said the preliminary report indicated "massive" insider trading by 21 top managers at European Aeronautic Defence and Space Company between November 2005 and March 2006. next year.

NEWS | French prosecutors investigate Apple deliberately slowing down iPhones Published: 03:44 EST, 9 January 2018 | Updated: 15:08 EST, 9 January 2018 French prosecutors have launched an investigation into Apple over allegations of  'planned obsolescence' in some of its iPhone models, a judicial source said Monday.  Apple admitted last month that it intentionally slowed down some older iPhone models over time, and later issued an unprecedented apology in response to the global backlash. If found guilty, Apple could be fined up to five per cent of its annual sales, and executives could face up to two years in jail. Bad apples: Deliberately slowing down products to force consumers to buy new ones, is illegal in France, and if found guilty, Apple could be fined five per cent of its annual salesThe investigation, prompted by a complaint by a consumer organisation, was opened last week and is being lead by a consumer fraud watchdog which is part of the French economy ministry. This practice, known as 'planned obsolescence' is a widely criticised strategy which sees manufacturers build in the expiry of their products so that consumers will be forced to replace them. France passed landmark legislation in 2015 known as 'Hamon's law' which made the 'planned obsolescence' illegal and - in theory - obliged retailers to say whether replacement parts were available.  Not so fast: Apple admitted last month that it intentionally slowed down older models of its iPhones over time, and later apologisedApple, which is also facing lawsuits from customers in the US and Israel, has not respond to a request for comment by news agencies. In December, the US tech giant admitted it 'throttles' phones to extend their life and stop them from shutting down as batteries age and become less effective. On Thursday Apple published an apology letter saying 'We know that some of you feel Apple has let you down'.The firm revealed it is slashing the price of a replacement battery, and planning a software upgrade which will show users exactly how much their battery has degraded. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5249551/French-prosecutors-investigate-Apple-slowing-iPhones.html

A guilty verdict for resisting arrest had been expected for the husband of a woman stopped for wearing a face-covering niqab in a Parisian suburb last year. The police had allegedly handled a young couple of French converts, and the woman's mother, so roughly that it sparked two nights of riots. But the odds changed when one of the arresting officers was indicted last week for making Islamophobic comments on Facebook. And then the courtroom was shocked by a surprise witness who contradicted the officers' claim that the defendant tried to strangle an officer. The witness said she felt compelled to testify that the defendant was cooperative and peaceful the entire time. The French media has seized upon the case as an example of religious sentiment overriding French law. But what appears to be sweeping France is xenophobia, as evidenced by the extreme-right National Front's victory in last week's EU elections. It's been shown that French police are often ardent supporters of the National Front, so there's concern that a guilty verdict could cause some police to feel even more empowered to continue making violent arrests of Muslims and immigrants. Analysts say that the election results will adversely affect the situation of Muslims across the EU, as xenophobic parties will now play an active role in shaping EU policies for years. The surprise witness forced a continuance to the case, which will now be decided in July.

PARIS, FRANCE — Friday night's deadly terror attacks in Paris, in which around 130 people were killed, took place at six locations and were carried out by three teams of terrorists working in unison, according to French prosecutors. The first explosion took place at 9.20 p.m. outside Gate D of the Stade De France Stadium during a France vs. Germany friendly football match. Reports said an attacker holding a ticket to the game was frisked as he tried to enter the stadium. His suicide vest was detonated as he backed away from security guards. Ten minutes later, a second suicide bomber detonated his explosive vest near Gate H of the stadium. While a third suicide bomber exploded his device near a McDonald's restaurant close to the stadium at around 9.53 p.m. The three suicide bombers and one passer by were killed in the attacks. Meanwhile, across town in Paris' 10th district, gunmen pulled up at the Le Carillon restaurant in a black car at approximately 9:25 p.m. and began shooting at customers. The attackers also targeted patrons at the Le Petit Cambodge restaurant across the street, the two attacks killed 15 people in total. Seven minutes later five people were killed when gunmen arriving in a black car shot at customers outside the bar La Bonne Biere. Then, at 9:36 p.m. gunmen, again travelling in a black vehicle, opened fire at customers eating outside the La Belle Equipe restaurant, killing 19. Several minutes later, at 9.40 p.m. a fourth suicide bomber detonated his device at the Comptore Voltaire restaurant, killing himself and seriously injuring one other person. At around the same time, three gunmen arrived at the Bataclan concert venue in a black VW Polo. After opening fire on concertgoers inside, witnesses said the men gathered hostages near the stage and made a brief address about Iraq and Syria. At 11:20 p.m., French special forces storm the building, killing one of the three terrorists. The other two detonate suicide vests. 89 people died at the scene. An international manhunt is now underway for French citizen Salah Abdeslam, who is suspected of being involved in the attacks. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Prosecutors in Paris have launched a full-scale investigation into the sudden disappearance of a North Korean student linked to the political rivals of the regime′s leader Kim Jong-un. News agency AFP reports a case was opened due to fears the student could be executed, if he were forcibly repatriated to Pyongyang. French authorities are still attempting to work out if he escaped the clutches of suspected North Korean agents and is still in France. The student, identified only by his family name, Han, has not been seen for over two weeks. He′s the son of a close aide to Jang Song-thaek, Kim Jong-un′s uncle, who was purged and swiftly executed late last year on charges of treason. Han′s father was also executed recently, as part of the regime′s continued liquidation of Jang′s inner circle.
