Mohamad Rahimeh found a talent for cooking in the Calais refugee camp. Now he has a viable business in London

When Mohamad Rahimeh arrived in the Calais refugee camp that was nicknamed “the Jungle”, cooking was the last thing on his mind. He was a political scientist from Syria with a journey from hell behind him. Food was just a means to an end.

But when a close friend fell sick, he rustled up a meal of eggs. A hidden talent was uncovered.

Iranian ship was boarded by marines in contested waters off coast of Gibraltar

The Spanish government has said it plans to lodge a formal complaint over the British military’s seizure off the coast of Gibraltar of an Iranian supertanker thought to be taking oil to Syria.

“We are studying the circumstances and looking at how this affects our sovereignty,” Josep Borell, Spain’s acting foreign minister, said. Spain considers the sea around Gibraltar to be part of its international waters, while the British regard it as theirs.

Russian-made missile crashes into mountainside overnight, setting hills ablaze

A missile has struck Cyprus, skimming the densely populated capital, Nicosia, and crashing on a mountainside in what officials said could have been a spillover of an Israeli strike on Syria and a counter response.

The impact occurred about 1am (10pm GMT) in the region of Tashkent, also known as Vouno, 12 miles (20km) north-east of Nicosia, with the explosion setting hills ablaze and heard for miles around. There were no casualties.

It's the US that has ties to Al-Qaeda. Look who they've been supporting in #Syria for christs sake! The Al-Qaeda Syrian branch known as #HTS. They keep re-branding themselves to obfuscate the connection.

Is Bernie Stealing Trump's 'No More Wars' Issue? - Antiwar.com Original

Does Trump really want to go into 2020 as a war party president?

Does he want to go into 2020 with Democrats denouncing "Trump’s endless wars" in the Middle East? Because that is where he is headed.
Looking closely at the front-running candidates for the Democratic nomination of 2020 – Joe Biden, Sanders, Kamala Harris, Beto O’Rourke, Pete Buttigieg, Elizabeth Warren, Cory Booker – not one appears to be as hawkish as Trump has become.
