22 WORLD SATURDAY DECEMBER 21 2019 NTNE01Z01MA - V1 THE US said new evidence and analysis of weapons debris recovered from an attack on Saudi oil facilities on September 14 indicates the strike likely came from the north. The latest results reinforce its earlier assessment that Iran was behind the offensive. In an interim report of its investigation, Washington assessed that before hitting its Reward of $10k to find stolen dog A SAN Francisco woman is offering a $US7000 ($A10,000) reward for her blue-eyed miniature Australian Shepherd stolen from outside a grocery store. Emilie Talermo also has hired a plane to fly a banner over the city in hopes of finding her dog Jackson. Ms Talermo said on Thursday she has been doing everything she can to find Jackson since he was stolen on Saturday in the Bernal Heights neighbourhood. I am just one person and I really need help getting the word out there, Ms Talermo said. Surveillance video from the grocery store shows a man in a hoodie approaching the bench where Jackson was tied up. Ms Talermo and her friends have distributed thousands of flyers with the photo of the 12.7kg dog with a white, black, and grey fur and bright blue eyes. She also set up a website, www.bringjacksonhome.com Emilie Talermo is offering a $10,000 reward for her blue-eyed miniature Australian Shepherd Picture: EMILIE TALERMO VIA AP Chocolate with rainbow effect SCIENTISTS in Switzerland have found a way to make brown chocolate colourful, without adding further ingredients. The Swiss Federal Institute of Technology said Thursday that researchers discovered a method to imprint a special structure on the surface of chocolate that makes it shimmer and shine like a rainbow. The university said the process mimics the effect of chameleon skin. It said the rainbow chocolate is ready for production. Police hunt for mall shooter A MAN shot another man Thursday during an argument inside an Oklahoma City mall, leaving police to search shops for the suspect while also clearing out shoppers who were still hiding. Sgt Kris Gellenbeck said the victim was hospitalised in a critical condition after being shot in the upper body. Sgt Gellenbeck said it wasnt known whether the suspect had left Penn Square Mall. Video from the scene showed a heavy police presence in the parking lot Thursday evening. 15 years in jail for burning flag A MAN has been sentenced to more than 15 years in prison for burning an LGBTQ flag that was flying at a church in the US. Adolfo Martinez, 30, of Ames, Iowa, was sentenced to 15 years for the hate crime of arson, as well as a year for the reckless use of explosives or fire, and 30 days for harassment. Martinez said he tore down the flag that had been hanging from the United Church of Christ in Ames and burned it because he opposes homosexuality. Iran launched attack New analysis of weapons debris from Saudi Arabia oil facilities HUMEYRA PAMUK targets, one of the drones traversed a location about 200km to the northwest of the attack site. The report was seen by Reuters ahead of a presentation on Thursday to the United Nations Security Council. This, in combination with the assessed 900km maximum range of the Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV), indicates with high likelihood that the attack originated north of Abqaiq, the interim report said, referring to the location of one of the Saudi oil facilities that were hit. It added the US had identified several similarities between the drones used in the raid and an Iranian designed and produced unmanned aircraft known as the IRN-05 UAV. However, the report noted that the analysis of the weapons debris did not definitely reveal the origin of the strike that initially knocked out half of Saudi Arabias oil production. At this time, the US Intelligence Community has not identified any information from the recovered weapon systems used in the 14 September attacks on Saudi Arabia that definitively reveals an attack origin, it said. The new findings include freshly declassified information, a State Department official told Reuters. The US, European powers and Saudi Arabia blamed the September attack on Iran. Yemens Houthi group claimed responsibility for the attacks, and Iran, which supports the Houthis, denied any involvement. US Special Envoy for Iran, Brian Hook, told Reuters that the newly-declassified information was more evidence that Tehran was behind the attack. The US presented its findings to a session of the UN Security Council on Thursday. www.polarisaustralia.com | /PolarisAustralia ACE 570 HD EPS SPORTSMAN XP 1000 EPS RZR XP TURBO S $11,995* $12,995* $29,995* SAVE $1,295 SAVE $6,495SAVE $3,795 Polaris ProStar Engine - 45 HP Heavy Duty Features On Demand True All Wheel Drive (AWD) Engine Braking System & Active Descent Control (ADC) Electronic Power Steering Polaris ProStar Engine - 90 HP IRS with 26cm of Travel High Performance On Demand True All-Wheel-Drive (AWD) 3 Mode Throttle Control Electronic Power Steering Engine Braking System & Active Descent Control (ADC) Polaris ProStar Turbo Engine - 168 HP High Performance On Demand True All-Wheel-Drive (AWD) Trailing Arm Rear Suspension 63.5cm Travel Electronic Power Steering 3 Mode Dynamix Suspension Control Ride Command 7 Touch Screen Display SERIOUS SAVINGS AT NT MOTORCYCLE CENTRE 637 STUART HIGHWAY BERRIMAH, NT 0828 (08) 8939 0390 sales@ntmc.com.au ntmotorcyclecentre.com.au *Offers end 31/12/19 or while stocks last.
