    Author:Issouf Sanogo
    Excerpt:
    (In Mali)... Haidara "has received numerous death threats by phone over the past several days, either directly or through those close to him", said close aide ...."It's the Islamists in the north who telephoned," he charged, adding that one of the callers said: "We are going to kill you because you want nothing to do with our Islam... we are going to kill you because you don't want sharia in Mali." Haidara heads a Muslim association called Ansar Dine (Defenders of the Faith), which is the same name as one of the radical Islamist groups that have seized control of the north of the country following a March coup.

    Seventeen killed as Yemen Army, Tribesmen Clash
    12/25/12
    Publisher:L’Agence France-Presse (AFP)
    Author: Hammoud Mounassar
    Excerpt:
    The dead included 10 tribesmen and seven soldiers, said the sources, who added that the offensive in Marib province's Habab valley, 140 kilometres (87 miles) east of the capital Sanaa, was launched in the early hours and was backed by air raids. The sources said the army was "randomly shelling" the area where some Al-Qaeda militants joined tribesmen battling Yemeni troops. Marib is a major Al-Qaeda stronghold. Tribesmen, of whom 18 were also wounded according to the same sources, fought back with rocket-propelled grenades and machineguns, one source said. A tribal source told AFP that the offensive was targeting prominent figure Salah bin Hussein al-Dammaj, who has allegedly blown up the pipeline several times to pressure the authorities to pay him 100 million riyals ($480,000) in compensation for land he claims was taken from him in Sanaa.

    Chemical Weapons were used on Homs: Syrias Miitary Police Defector tells of nerve gas attack
    Reported by The Independent (London) Dec 26, 2012
    Regarding a high-ranking military Police defector from the Assad defense forces:


    it is his claim that chemical weapons were used in Homs during a deadly attack on Christmas Eve that is likely to be of greater interest to the Syrian opposition and their foreign backers. Reports from Homs had suggested that a type of nerve agent was used by the Syrian forces in the attack, a point that General Shallal appeared to verify yesterday. Al Jazeera reported at the time that at least seven people had died after inhaling a poisonous gas
