Weather improves but clock ticks for Argentine submarine search

Weather improves but clock ticks for Argentine submarine searchBy Walter Bianchi MAR DEL PLATA, Argentina (Reuters) - The search for a missing Argentine submarine and its 44-member crew was helped by calmer seas on Tuesday, but there were no new clues about its location and worries multiplied because the vessel may be running low on oxygen, a navy spokesman said. The ARA San Juan was en route from Ushuaia, the world's southernmost city, to its base in Mar del Plata and was about 300 miles (480 km) off the coast when it gave its last location on Wednesday, soon after reporting an electrical malfunction. If the German-built submarine had sunk or was otherwise unable to rise to the surface since it sent its last signal, it would be winding down its seven-day oxygen supply.

Mnangagwa: Zimbabwe's 'Crocodile' to snap up the top job

Mnangagwa: Zimbabwe's 'Crocodile' to snap up the top jobNicknamed "the Crocodile" for his ruthlessness, Emmerson Mnangagwa who will take over as Zimbabwe's next president, is a hardliner with ties to the military who could prove as authoritarian as his mentor Robert Mugabe. It was his political ambition to take over which set off a bitter succession battle between him and Grace, the president's 52-year-old wife, triggering the crisis that toppled the autocrat, who resigned on Tuesday. When Mnangagwa was dismissed as vice president by Mugabe on November 6, it initially looked like he'd been outfoxed by the first lady, forcing him to flee the country.


Elite Royal Navy rescue team sent as possible calls detected from missing Argentine submarine

Elite Royal Navy rescue team sent as possible calls detected from missing Argentine submarineThe Royal Navy has deployed its elite submarine rescue team to join the search for a missing Argentine submarine, after failed satellite calls thought to be from the vessel raised hopes the crew were still alive. HMS Protector also began scouring the South Atlantic as part of the international hunt for the missing vessel, and HMS Clyde was being diverted from South Georgia. Argentine officials said naval bases had detected seven incomplete satellite calls over the weekend attributed to the sub and were now trying to use them to pinpoint its location. The communication attempts "indicate that the crew is trying to re-establish contact, so we are working to locate the source of the emissions," the Argentine Navy said on its Twitter account, adding that the calls lasted between four and 36 seconds. An international team of ships and aircraft were braving heavy seas and high winds to search for the German-built ARA San Juan which has been lost since last week. Argentine navy loses contact with submarine carrying 44 01:08 The Royal Navy said it was flying the Submarine Parachute Assistance Group (SPAG) to the region to join the hunt. The highly trained team of medics, engineers and escape specialists is continuously on six hours notice to go anywhere in the world. Team members are parachute trained so that they can leap into the water at the scene if needed, but in this case will embark on HMS Protector. They carry inflatable boats and life rafts, medical equipment and communications gear which allows them to talk to trapped crews. Arrived on task in the search area in the early hours of this morning and have commenced sonar and visual search for #ARASanJuan as part of the ongoing multinational operation. Conditions remain challenging given current weather. pic.twitter.com/Sxgi9MZGo5? HMS_Protector (@protector_hms) November 19, 2017 The San Juan and its 44 crew last made contact on Wednesday when she was 267 miles off the coast in the Gulf of San Jorge. The latest possible calls were a sign for ?cautious enthusiasm?, naval experts said, showing the crew may be alive, afloat and at a shallow enough depth to attempt to communicate. HMS Protector has begun sonar scans to hunt for the submarine Credit: MOD Claudio Rodriguez, whose brother Hernan is aboard the submarine, told a local television channel: "They've got to be afloat. Thank God. That gives us hope, because we knew that if they were down below, they would be screwed.? HMS Protector, the Royal Navy?s 5,000 ton ice patrol and survey ship, was diverted to join the search from a routine mission in the area and can bring its high definition sonar to bear on the search. Search and rescue mission for Argentinian submarine The hunt also includes help from Brazil, Chile, Uruguay and the United States. America on Sunday said it was sending a second P-8 Poseidon submarine hunting navy patrol plane to join the search. The US Navy has also dispatched two submarine rescue chambers that can dock onto stricken boats and ferry crew to the surface from hundreds of feet underwater. ARA San Juan submarine Credit: Argentine defence ministry/AFP The San Juan is a TR-1700 class submarine which had been returning from a routine mission to Ushuaia, near the southernmost tip of South America, to its base at Mar del Plata, about 250 miles south of Buenos Aires. Timeline | Submarine accidents Among those on board is Argentina's first female submarine officer, 35-year-old weapons officer Eliana Krawczyk. Rescuers are focusing on an ocean patch about 190 miles in diameter located about 270 miles from the coast of the southern province of Chubut.

Ann Maguire murder: Parents should be made to sign contracts with Facebook and monitor children's accounts, says coroner 

Ann Maguire murder: Parents should be made to sign contracts with Facebook and monitor children's accounts, says coroner Parents should be made to sign contracts compelling them to monitor their children?s Facebook messages, the coroner in the Ann Maguire murder inquest has claimed. Under proposals due to be presented to the Digital minister Matt Hancock, parents would be given the right to pry on their children?s accounts because their ?responsibility transcends? a teenager?s ?entitlement to privacy?. The suggestions would also require teens aged 13 to 18 to have a named parent on their application to open an account, and make parents contractually obliged to monitor their communications. Coroner Kevin McLoughlin outlined the proposals yesterday as a jury ruled that the murder of Spanish teacher Ann Maguire could have been prevented. Teenage killer of teacher Ann Maguire told ten friends 'precisely' what he planned to do Delivering a conclusion of unlawful killing, the jury at Wakefield Coroner?s Court said that her death had resulted from ?missed opportunities to share and record the problem behaviour? of her killer. It comes more than two years after Ms Maguire, an employee of Corpus Christi College, Leeds was stabbed to death by pupil Will Cornick during a lesson at the school on 28 April 2014. During the inquest, the jury heard that Cornick, then 15, had exchanged a series of messages on Facebook with friends in which he professed his hatred for Ms Maguire and his desire to harm her. In one Facebook exchange, he expressed his loathing for the 61-year-old and offered a friend ?a tenner? for them to kill her. Another associate of Cornick told police officers in an interview that Cornick had said of Mrs Maguire: ?I don?t want to hurt her, I want to kill her.? Cornick was 15 years old when he stabbed to death Mrs Maguire, 61, as she taught a class at Corpus Christi Catholic College, in Leeds The teenager told 10 pupils of his intention to kill Mrs Maguire and other members of staff, and showed four of them the 34-inch knife he later used in her brutal murder. Despite his litany of threats, none of the pupils reported the outbursts to the school. Their conversations with Cornick only surfaced in pre-inquest hearings, and it later emerged that they had never been questioned about them by police officers or teaching staff after her murder. In statements following Mrs Maguire?s murder, Cornick?s parents claimed they had no prior knowledge of their son?s intentions. Commenting on the disclosures, Mr McLoughlin said that Cornick?s online threats had been ?sinister and grotesque?, adding that he believed that ?parents have a responsibility to protect children?. In order to do this, he said that they should be given ?access to supervise content?, adding: ?any parent?s responsibility transcends any teenager?s entitlement to privacy.? A Facebook spokesman said: "We want everyone to feel safe when using Facebook. We work closely with online safety experts including the UK Safer Internet Centre and Childnet International to make sure that young people and their parents know how technology works and what they need to think about before sharing online."
