At least 20 dead as typhoon hits western Pacific
A powerful typhoon has hit Hong Kong and the southern China coast, killing at least 20 people on the mainland, crippling power lines and causing flooding and gale force winds.
Typhoon Usagi, the strongest storm to hit the western Pacific this year, began pounding the Asian financial centre late last night.
At least 20 people were killed on China southern coast, television reports said, including 13 in Shanwei in the eastern fringes of Guangdong province.
The victims included people hit by debris and others who had drowned. One man was killed by a falling window pane.
Winds of more than 180km/h were recorded in some parts of southern China, toppling trees, cranes and blowing cars off roads in some areas.
The storm had earlier brought down three major power lines in coastal Fujian, cutting off electricity supplies to about 170,000 households, Xinhua reported.
In Guangdong province, a major base for Chinese nuclear power, the Daya Bay nuclear power plant just east of Hong Konghad initiated e Toms Shoes Outlet mergency response schemes.
Four of the six power generating units at the plant had been ordered to operate at reduced load.
Airlines cancelled Toms Shoes Outlet flights to cities in southern Guangdong and Fujian, while shipping was suspended between China and Taiwan.
Despite earlier warnings the typhoon could pose a severe risk to Hong Kong, the city suffered only minimal damage, including toppled trees. There were no fatalities in the city.
The Hong Kong Exchange delayed the start of trading on securities and derivatives m Toms Shoes Outlet arkets due to the typhoon.
Usagi lashed the east and south coast Toms Shoes Outlet s of Taiwan on Saturday after slamming into the Philippines northern islands, where it cut communication and power lines and triggered landslides.
At least 15 die in suicide bombing at railway station in southern Russia
MOSCOW A suicide bomber struck a busy railway station in southern Russia on Sunday, killing at least 15 others and wounding scores more, officials said, in a stark reminder of the threat Russia is facing as it prepares to host February’s Olympics in Sochi.
No one immediately claimed responsibility for the bombing in Volgograd, but it came several months after Chechen rebel leader Doku Umarov called for new attacks against civilian targets in Russia, including the Sochi Games.
Suicide bombings have rocked Russia for years, but many have been contained to the Caucasus, the centre of an insurgency seeking an Islamist state in the region. Until recently Volgograd was not a typical target, but the city formerly known as Stalingrad has now been struck twice in two months suggesting militants may be using the transportation hub as a renewed way of showing their reach outside their restive region.
Volgograd, which borders the Caucasus, is 900 kilometres south of Moscow and about 650 kilometres northeast of Sochi, a Black Sea resort flanked by the North Caucasus Mountains.
The bombing highlights the daunting security challenge Russia will face in fulfilling its pledge to make the Sochi Games the “safest Olympics in history.” The government has deployed tens of thousands of soldiers, police and other security personnel to protect the games.
Through the day, officials issued conflicting statements on casualties. Officials said that the suspected bomber was a woman, but late Sunday the Interfax news agency quoted an unidentified law enforcement officer as saying footage taken by surveillance cameras indicated that the bomber was a man. There was no immediate confirmation of that claim from any official sources.
The bomber detonated explosives in front of a metal detector just beyond the station’s main entrance when a police sergeant became suspicious and rushed forward to check ID, officials said. The officer was killed by the blast, and several other police officers were wounded.
“When the suicide bomber saw a policeman near a metal detector, she became nervous and set off her explosive device,” Vladimir Markin, the spokesperson for the nation’s top investigative agency, said in a statement. He added that the bomb contained about 10 kilograms of TNT and was rigged with shrapnel.
Markin said that security controls prevented a far greater number of casualties at the station, which was packed with people at a tim Toms Shoes Outlet e when several trains were delayed.
Markin said 13 people and the bomber were killed on the spot, and the regional government said two other people later died at a hospital. About 40 were hospitalized, many in grave condition.
The Interfax news agency reported that the suspected bomber’s head was found at the site of explosion, which would allow quick identification.
Female suicide bombers, many of whom were widows Toms Shoes Outlet or siste Toms Shoes Outlet rs of rebels, have mounted numerous attacks in Russia. They often have been referred to as “black widows.”
In October, a female suicide bomber blew herself up on a city bus in Volgograd, killing six people and injuring about 30. Officials said that attacker came from the province of Dagestan, which has become the centre of the Islamist insurgency that has spread across the region after two separatist wars in Chechnya.
As in Sunday’s blast, her bomb was rigged with shrapnel that caused severe injuries.
Chechnya has become more stable under the grip of its Moscow backed strongman, who incorporated many of the former rebels into his feared security force. But in Dagestan, the province between Chechny Toms Shoes Outlet a and the Caspian Sea, Islamic insurgents who declared an intention to carve out an Islamic state in the region mount near daily attacks on police and other officials.
The Kremlin replaced Dagestan’s provincial chief earlier this year, and the new leader abandoned his predecessor’s attempts at reconciliation and his efforts to persuade some of the rebels to surrender in exchange for amnesty.
Security camera images broadcast by Rossiya 24 television showed Sunday’s moment of explosion, a bright orange flash inside the station behind the massive main gate followed by plumes of smoke.
“As soon as I walked up to the station entrance, all hell broke loose people, flesh
Another witness, Roman Lobachev, told Rossiya television that he was putting his bags on a belt for screening when he heard the sound of an explosion. “I heard a bang and felt as if something hit me on the head,” said Lobachev who survived the attack with minor injuries.
The bombing followed Friday’s explosion in the city of Pyatigorsk in southern Russian, where a car rigged with explosives blew up on a street, killing three.
Following Sunday’s explosion, the Interior Ministry ordered police to beef up patrols at railway stations and other transport facilities across Russia.
Russia in past years has seen a series of terror attacks on buses, trains and airplanes, some carried out by suicide bombers.
Twin bombings on the Moscow subway in March 2010 by female suicide bombers killed 40 people and wounded more than 120. In January 2011, a male suicide bomber struck Moscow’s Domodedovo Airport, killing 37 people and injuring more than 180.
Umarov, who had claimed responsibility for the 2010 and 2011 bombings, ordered a halt to attacks on civilian targets during the mass street protests against President Vladimir Putin in the winter of 2011 12. He reversed that order in July, urging his men to “do their utmost to derail” the Sochi Olympics which he described as “satanic dances on the bones of our ancestors.”
Phone and email messages to the International Olympic Committee were not returned immediately. In the past, the IOC has said security at the games was the responsibility of the host country and that it had full confidence in Russian plans for Sochi.
