USGS: Japan’s Fukushima district was one of the areas affected by today’s M5.8 earthquake that struck Japan’s Honshu region. The Honshu region is a notoriously geologically unstable part of the world, with M5 earthquakes striking the area on a more, or less daily basis.

No damage, or tsunami report has yet been made. In the meantime, the situation at the plant is much worse than when disaster struck some weeks ago as a result of a massive earthquake and tsunami.

The plant operators currently have no plan to curtail the melting down of one, or more of the plant’s reactors and currently, deadly amount of radioactive substances continue to spew into the sea and environment with serious pollution being experienced in parts of the country as far away as Tokyo where drinking water and milk have been found to be heavily contaminated with radioactive particles.

In addition, much of the world now and the Pacific ocean is experiencing  worrying radioactive contamination from the damaged reactors.

RT.COM: According a former CIA agent, Berkan Yashar, an ethnic Chechen now living in Turkey, Osama Bin Laden is in love with dying. That is because, he not only died in 2011, but also in 2006.

Berkan Yashar told Russia‘s Channel One TV station: “I knew Bin Laden’s Chechen guards very well…Samy, Ayub and Mahmud were with him right to the end. I remember well this date as there were three sixes in it – June 26, 2006. Those three men, as well as two Muslims from London and two from the US saw Bin Laden dead.He was seriously ill before his death. He faded away to skin and bone. The three Chechens washed his body before burying it.”

Yashar confirms that on May 2 2011, when President Obama pronounced that Bin Laden had been shot in the eye in Pakistan and dumped into the sea, US officials had found Bin Laden’s grave in the area of the Afghan-Pakistani border and then play-acted his killing in 2011.

Yashar said that he had only disclosed the news to the Russian media, because he had been concerned for his safety had he released the news outside Russia.

Gassed and brutally raped in the Costa Del Sol, 56 year old British woman tourist suffers humiliating ordeal

[Telma Sarovskaya, Crime News Contributor]

MailOnline:  A 56 year old British woman on holiday with her husband in Spain‘s Costa  Del Sol, had sophoric gas pumped into her apartment which made the woman’s husband unconscious. Whilst he lay next to her in that state, robbers broke into the apartment, brutally raped her and left with a large quantity of money.

The attack was reported to have happened at Hotel Siroco in Benalmadena, Spain where the couple had been staying.   The woman’s 55 year old husband had woken up to his wife screaming and learned later that she had been raped and their apartment burgled.

The Malaga police are looking into the incident and after treatment last week by Spanish doctors, the woman will undergo HIV tests in England.

So far no one has been arrested.

Breaking news: UK judge moves to jail Twitter writer for tweeting details of a UK superinjunction

[Dana Banona, Privacy Law Contributor]

MailOnline: Last week, in what will turn out to be a test case for the enforceability of  UK superinjunctions when they have been deliberately breached on social networking sites such as Twitter, an England footballer who had obtained a superinjuction, has asked the court granting it to prosecute the writer who deliberately flounted it on Twitter.  Mr. Justice Tugendhat, a UK privacy judge, has referred the case to the UK Attorney General for consideration of prosecution.

A UK privacy order, or superinjunction, is an order of a UK court and those who breach it commit a ‘contempt of court‘ which is punishable by imprisonment.  As the privacy injunction appears to be been deliberately breached on Twitter, it is more than likely that the violator, a well-known writer, will face criminal prosecution quite shortly.
