Around 60 percent of the 3 million Romanian migrants are not planning to come back to their motherland, it was revealed in a survey conducted by the Soros Foundation. They are saving up to 40% of their earnings abroad – which totalled 12 billion Euros in 2010 – and they are now sending less money to their families at home.

FC Liverpool Bosses Plane Used for CIA Secret Flights

It has been revealed by a report from the human rights watchdog Reprieve that a Gulfstream jet airplane, belonging to Philip Morse, the current owner of FC Liverpool, has been usef for at least two CIA special secret flights, that also landed in Romania. On March the 24th and on April the 12th, 2004, the plane flew from Guantanamo to Morocco, via Romania, carrying aboard several Al Qaida agents, allegedly named Abd al Rahim al-Nashiri, Abu Zubaydah, Ramzi bin al-Shibh and Mustafa al-Hawsawi.

As Mail on Sunday also reports, the plane was hired from 2002 to 2005 by the Central Intelligence Agency. Another report, by the European Parliament, links the plane to the kidnapping of preacher Abu Omar, in 2003. The plane was reported to have landed on Kabul, Baku, Tripoli and Rabat and, since December 2004, it is also alleged that is has conducted at least 51 flights for the CIA.

Mr. Morse has confirmed having rented out the aircraft, but he broke the deal, when he found out about Omar’s extradition, in 2005.

The Gangs of Beirut, a War Apart

Militias may be gone, but arms remain ready to fight in Beirut. While many are still armed, Beirut’s Sunnis are neither armed, nor trained the way they once were. The heart of what has become known as West Beirut, the Sunni’s stronghold during the country’s 15-years civil war, is now a mixture of mostly Sunni and Shia residents, who often clash with heavy weaponry in neighbourhood battles.
