Germany has bowed to U.S. pressure to ban from its airspace an Iranian airline accused of ferrying weapons and advisers to help support President Bashar Al-Assad's forces in Syria's civil war.


A senior German government source told Reuters on Monday that Berlin had revoked the landing rights of Mahan Air due to suspicions that it was being used for military purposes by Iran's Revolutionary Guards and also on safety grounds.


The measure did not constitute the imposition of general sanctions against Iran, the source said.


The withdrawal of Mahan's operating license, first reported by Sueddeutsche Zeitung newspaper and public broadcasters NDR and WDR, follows a concerted campaign by the United States, which first listed the airline as a sanctions target in 2011.



In September, Richard Grenell, the outspoken U.S. ambassador to Berlin, tweeted his objections to the airline continuing to operate in Germany. "Mahan Air has routinely flown fighters and material to Syria to prop up the Assad regime," a linked embassy press release stated.


"Why is Mahan Air allowed to fly into Munich and Duesseldorf," he asked on Twitter. "I'm going to keep asking everyday [sic]." The statement also threatened companies that dealt with Mahan with U.S. sanctions.

Ugandan President,Yoweri Musevenibans gambling and sports betting in the countryUganda's  Finance minister David Bahati, has confirmed that President Yoweri Museveni has ordered his government not to issue or renew licences for sports betting firms. Bahati said President Museveni issued the directive because of the negative impact the betting craze has had on young people. "We have received a directive from President Museveni to stop licensing sports betting, gaming and gambling companies. The President has now directed the board which has been regulating them. From now onwards, no new companies are going to be licensed. Those which are already registered, no renewal of licences when they expire" Bahati told a church congregation at Rugarama Hill in Kabale town on Sunday. Bahati said church leaders who have been against sports betting can now praise the Lord because their prayers have been answered. However, the Ministry of Finance spokesman, Mr Jim Mugunga, said he was unaware of the president's directive but added that he does not doubt it.

R. Kelly's estranged daughter, who called him out in a lengthy rant earlier this month (read here), has revealed that she was struggling to deal with the pain her father has caused but that she still loves him. Joann Kelly made her first TV appearance on Good Morning Britain alongside her mother and R.Kelly's ex-wife Andrea Kelly, aka Drea. During the show, Joann explained what life was like growing up inside the sex 'cult' house. Kelly, 52, reportedly set up a cult of young women, whom he brainwashed, kept hostage for his sexual satisfaction, and abused.For years, R. Kelly has been accused of sexual misconduct by several women but he keeps denying it. But after the Lifetime docuseries 'Surviving R. Kelly' aired, the world began to give more attention to the accusations.Speaking of the allegations against her father, Joann said:I am very torn at the end of the day he is still family and he is still my blood and yes I still love my father. Joann added:It is very hard to digest. As a lot of people know as far as the reaction to what is happening that he is still my father.It is a hard situation. My heart is torn into two separate places.I don't want to confirm or deny anything that these women have said about my father.As I have said I know him he is my father and I grew up in that house with my father. I spent years in that house it is very painful.It is painful to see all these people affected by this man who is my father. Speaking to Piers Morgan and co-host Sussana Reid, Joann said she hasn't seen her father for a few years and added that he has made no efforts to contact her.  She said: At the end of the day you have to be responsible for your actions. If my father is a toxic person then we have to love him from a distance.There is no love lost and I have to separate myself. Joann's mother Drea explained that during her marriage to R Kelly she saw two different sides to him. She said that he opened up to her about childhood abuse that he suffered and how he had experienced domestic violence.She explained: He perpetrated so much misery on to so many young women and girls. I do not portray sympathy I portray understanding.I am a firm believer that if you have been abused, it does not give you a free pass to be an abuser. She added: It is devastating. I sit here as a survivor and a mother to his children. It is a difficult position for me to be in but being a mother to his children I could not not say anything. Drea also claimed that he abused her and she opened up about it as she did on the documentary.She said: My truth is what I survived he was abusive to me verbally, physically and sexually and now he is financially abusing me.I can only speak to my story and ring true to what I know, and something has to be done. Piers added that GMB had reached out to R Kelly's lawyer, who has claimed Drea's allegations are completely unfounded and 'without merit'.

A mother who still breastfeeds her 7-year-old son and his 4-year-old brother has been criticized by social media users who called her a sick paedophile. But she has hit back at the trolls. Australian Lisa Bridger, 46, revealed in a Kidspot post in June that she still feeds her autistic son Chase, 7, and his four-year-old brother Pheonix, who is also autistic. She defended her decision by saying breastfeeding calms them.But her post was bombarded with comments from people who told her that she was damaging her children. Some even accused her of incest and child abuse.   Replying to the harsh comments, Lisa wrote an open letter posted to Kidspot today. In the letter, Lisa said she would have continued to breastfeed Chase until he no longer wanted it, even if he didn't have autism.Her letter reads:To the adults who have commented that I am sick and need to get help, there is nothing mentally wrong with me, I am only doing what is natural.It's not a sexual act, I'm not a paedophile which is what quite a few have suggested.My son is very independent, self-assured, not damaged. His friends and peers don't tease as they have been educated in the fact that what he is doing is ok.Watching and seeing all you adults bully and abuse me, telling me what I need to do for your comfort, overriding my child's comfort, I can see why so many children bully these days. Lisa explained that her son uses a cup to drink water, eats normal food - although he is "picky" - and dresses himself. This, she said, is proof that his extended breastfeeding was doing nothing to slow his development.She added: Breast milk contains some amazing things, antibodies, white blood cells, vitamins that my body produces and transfers to his, and no these nutrients don't just disappear because he's older. Breastfeeding offers him comfort and security among other things. She also revealed that she breastfeeds only at night, or "to help reconnect after a meltdown", although sometimes he preferred a hug.  Lisa added that her 7-year-old son will stop breastfeeding when his milk teeth fall out.She said: I don't need a man, it's not a sexual act, you can't force a baby or toddler or older child to breastfeed, in fact I'm ready for him to wean whenever as I have been for quite some time.

Minister for Information and Culture, Lai Moahmmed, says the Federal government is in possession of credible intelligence report indicating a grand plan by members of the opposition to use Boko Haram members and armed bandits to creat widespread violence in several states during the 2019 elections. Mohammed said this at a press briefing in Abuja today January 21st.  ''As you are aware, Nigeria goes to the polls just 27 days from now. However, the Federal Government is in possession of credible intelligence to the effect that widespread violence being orchestrated by the opposition is threatening the 2019 general elections. You have definitely seen the massive and warm reception that President Muhammadu Buhari has been receiving across the country, compared to the thinning crowds that have been attending the opposition rallies. Having realized that their fortunes have dwindled badly ahead of the polls,the desperate opposition is orchestrating widespread violence with a view to truncating the elections, thus triggering a constitutional crisis that could snowball into the establishment of an interim govt.Before you accuse the government of crying wolf, let me tell you, gentlemen, that we hv credible intelligence that armed bandits and BokoHaram insurgents have been mobilized to engage in massive attacks and other acts of violence in several states including Adamawa, Bauchi, Borno, Benue, Kano, Kaduna, Nasarawa, Plateau, Taraba and Zamfara.The Benue-based armed criminal group, led by Terwase AKWAZA, also known as Gana, has been commissioned to strike soft targets in Benue, Nasarawa, and Taraba States. In Kano State, a group of notorious miscreants have been mobilized by some prominent opposition leaders to provoke massive chaos before, during and after the elections. There is also an international dimension to the evil plan. Some armed mercenaries from Niger Republic have been contracted to attack top government functionaries, including state governors, across the North-west between now and the elections. The Federal Government is taking every possible measure to counter these evil plans by unpatriotic anarchists and ensure the success of the 2019 General Elections. The Administration's commitment to a credible, free, fair and peaceful elections is unshaken'' he said
