MONDAY NOVEMBER 17 2014 WORLD 11 V1 - NTNE01Z01MA Beheading culprit hit by bombs LONDON: THE Briton who beheaded two British and two American hostages held by Islamic State terrorists, has been injured in a US-led air strike, according to reports received by the British Foreign Office. The masked executioner with a London accent is believed to have narrowly escaped death when he attended a summit of the groups leaders in an Iraqi town close to the Syrian border last week. The meeting was targeted by American and Iraqi jets. We are aware of reports that this individual (Jihadi John) has been injured, and we are looking into them, a Foreign Office spokesman told The Mail on Sunday. An independent account was received of how Jihadi John was injured and rushed to hospital after a devastating air strike in Western Iraq. The Foreign Office spokesman added, We have a number of sources of information coming in. The incident occurred last weekend, and so we have received the reports in the last few days. We dont have any representation inside Syria, and so it is difficult to confirm these reports. A spokesman for US Central Command said they were unable to confirm the details for security reasons. The joint US-Iraqi mission left at least ten IS commanders dead, and around 40 injured. Those reportedly hurt included IS leader Abu Bakr AlBaghdadi. But until now, Jihadi Johns presence has not emerged. It is also not known whether Jihadi John was intentionally targeted or merely happened to be present. Suspect in knife attack SINGAPORE: An Indonesian man has been charged with stabbing a compatriot in Singapores banking district in a brazen bid to rob him of more than $A600,000 in public. Police declined to give details about the 38-year-old suspect, saying only that he was charged with voluntarily causing hurt while committing a robbery, punishable by a jail term of at least five years and at least 12 strokes of the cane. The victim was stabbed three times. He was reportedly carrying Singapore and Brunei dollars as well as three cash cheques in a sling bag. Police detain an anti-Black Pete demonstrator as Saint Nicholas arrived in the historic city of Gouda, Netherlands, and inset, a child dressed as Black Pete THE HAGUE, Netherlands: Police arrested 90 protesters as a traditional Dutch celebration of the arrival of Saint Nicholas was disturbed by demonstrators who say his faithful sidekick, Black Pete, is a racist caricature, and by supporters of the popular childrens figure. In some of the worst scenes of unrest in the increasingly acrimonious debate about Black Pete, opponents scuffled with police on the historic market place of the central city of Gouda as thousands of children welcomed Saint Nicholas nearby. Prosecution office spokesman Wouter Bos said 60 anti-Black Pete activists were arrested for demonstrating away from a location set aside for protesters and were each fined 220 euros ($275). Another 30, both supporters and opponents of Black Pete, were arrested for disturbing public order, Mr Bos said. Deeply, deeply sad, Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte told broadcaster NOS. Everybody can debate one another, we can endlessly discuss the colour of Black Pete, but we should not disturb a childrens party in this way. We are aware of reports Jihadi John has been hurt Fury erupts at Black Pete Whale rescue effort fails MANAGUA: A whale stranded on a Pacific coast beach in Nicaragua has died despite 300 locals trying to push the mammal back into deep waters, officials say. The 18.5m blue whale ran aground l45km southeast of Managua, according to the authorities. About 300 people tried all of Friday afternoon and into the night to save the whale but that proved impossible, government officials said. The last hope was that high tide would carry the creature out to sea, but, he said, that never happened.
