  • British boy Julian Cadman was killed in Barcelona attack, family confirms

    Golocal247.com news

    The grieving family of Julian Cadman, the British boy killed in the Barcelona terror attack, said they will never forget his smiles. The seven-year-old was in the Spanish city with his mother, Jumarie Cadman, to attend a family wedding when they were hit by a rented van as it careered down Las Ramblas, killing 13 and injuring more than 100. Mrs Cadman was seriously injured and in a coma, as of Sunday morning, unaware of her son's death, a senior Catalan Government source told the Telegraph. Julian Cadman, seven, who was killed in the Barcelona terror attack Julian's family confirmed he had been killed in a statement released on Sunday, saying: "Julian was a much loved and adored member of our family. "As he was enjoying the sights of Barcelona with his mother, Julian was sadly taken from us. "He was so energetic, funny and cheeky, always bringing a smile to our faces. "We are so blessed to have had him in our lives and will remember his smiles and hold his memory dear to our hearts." The family thanked those who helped search for Julian in the immediate aftermath of the attack, adding: "Your kindness was incredible during a difficult time. "We also acknowledge we are not the only family to be affected by the events, our prayers and thoughts are with all people affected." It took several days to formally identify Julian's body because DNA confirmation was required, the government source said. Andrew Cadman, the boy's father, heard the news of the attack on the radio last week and on discovering that his son was missing, immediately flew from Sydney to Barcelona, arriving in the early hours of Saturday morning. It is believed he was taken straight to the Ciutat de la Justicia, where victims of the Las Ramblas terror attack were being identified by forensic experts. He was then taken, with a police escort, to the Vall d'Hebron hospital where his wife, who sustained severe injuries, underwent surgery. Mapped: Barcelona van attack Boris Johnson, the Foreign Secretary, said: "I send my sincerest sympathies to the family of Julian Cadman and all those who loved him. His death is a tragedy." Julian was born in Tunbridge Wells, Kent, and lived in the UK for four years, attending Chiddingstone Nursery, set in a castle in the countryside, before the family-of-three moved to Australia three years ago. They return to the UK once a year to visit Mrs Cadman's older sister, Judith, whose daughter Justine's wedding the pair were attending in Barcelona.  Julian's paternal grandfather, Tony Cadman, originally from Gillingham, had emigrated to Sydney decades earlier. The family had put out urgent appeals for information about Julian on social media that were removed from the internet on Saturday. Family member Debbie Cadman wrote on Facebook: "It is beyond words what we are experiencing at the moment. We appreciate all prayers and love." Terror in Spain: Dozens killed and injured in Barcelona and Cambrils A pharmacist who comforted Mrs Cadman in the immediate aftermath of the attack has described how she  ignored her own as she begged for information about her son. Fouad Bakkali comforted Mrs Cadman as she lay on the floor of his Las Ramblas shop, waiting for paramedics.  “I was with the mother, the Australian mother, until the doctor came,’’ he said. “I was at her side helping her, telling her, ‘be calm, don’t worry.’’ He said Mrs Cadman appeared to be suffering two broken legs, a back injury and had a large wound on her head. “She was asking all the time about her little boy. She asked me ‘where is my son’. She told me he was seven years old,’’ a Mr Bakkali added. “I told her, 'he is good, it will be OK.' “I helped to keep her breathing until the doctor’s came." Barcelona attack key articles The Catalan interior department also confirmed the deaths of an Italian and a Belgian national in the Las Ramblas attack.  Forensic doctors and police are still working to identify two remaining victims of the 13 killed. Those already named include Luca Rosso, a 35-year-old Italian on holiday with his fiancee, Bruno Gulotta, 35, an Italian father-of-two and Jared Tucker, 42, an American construction worker . Officials said 51 people injured in the attack remain in hospital while 81 have been discharged.  The victims hailed from 34 countries including China, Colombia, France, Germany, Honduras and Morocco.

    Golocal247.com news

    A dead Moroccan imam has become a key target of the probe into Spain's twin terror attacks, suspected of having created the cell in a picturesque town near the Spanish Pyrenees that allegedly launched the deadly assaults last week. The blast likely changed the plans of the attackers, who instead used vehicles to smash into pedestrians on Barcelona's busy Las Ramblas boulevard and in the seaside resort town of Cambrils. "On Tuesday morning, he left saying he was going on vacation to Morocco," said fruit-seller Nordeen El Haji, 45, who four months ago moved into the apartment that Satty occupied in Ripoll.

  • Sons of US defector to North Korea confirm his death, vow to 'wipe the land of the US from the earth forever' 

    Golocal247.com news

    The only US soldier known to still be living in North Korea after defecting more than five decades ago died last year pledging his loyalty to the "great leader Kim Jong-Un", his sons said. James Joseph Dresnok was among just a handful of American servicemen to desert following the Korean War, crossing the heavily fortified Demilitarized Zone in 1962. He went on to appear in North Korean propaganda films and was believed to be the last US defector in the country, the others all having died or been allowed to leave. In a video interview posted on the state-run Uriminzokkiri website, Ted and James Dresnok, his two adult sons, confirmed that their father suffered a fatal stroke in November last year. "Our father was in the arms of the republic and received only the love and care of the party until his passing at age 74," said Ted Dresnok, the elder of the two. This handout from VeryMuchSo Productions/Koryo Tours taken in May 2005 and released on August 21, 2017 shows James Joseph Dresnok in an unknown location Credit: AFP Brown-haired and hazel-eyed, he wore a Korean People's Army uniform in the video like his brother, adorned with a badge depicting the North's founder Kim Il-Sung and his son and successor Kim Jong-Il. Both men were born in North Korea, and spoke Korean with a heavy Northern accent. "Our father asked us to render devoted service to our great leader Kim Jong-Un," said Ted Dresnok, who also goes by the Korean name Hong Soon-Chol. Their comments were similar to those of ordinary North Koreans, who normally only ever express officially approved sentiments when speaking for a foreign audience. It was the brothers' second appearance on the programme, after they praised the country in a May 2016 interview. Addressing the recent spike in tensions between Pyongyang and Washington, Ted Dresnok warned that the "US imperialists" were raising "war hysteria madness" with little knowledge about the North's military and its people. This handout from VeryMuchSo Productions/Koryo Tours taken in June 2004 and released on August 21, 2017 shows US defectors to North Korea Charles Jenkins (L) and James Joseph Dresnok in an unknown location Credit: AFP If war breaks out, he said, "We will not miss the opportunity and wipe the land of the US from the earth forever." Tensions have been mounting in the region since Pyongyang tested two intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBM) last month that appeared to bring much of the US within range. That sparked a volley of threats between Pyongyang and Washington, with President Donald Trump warning of "fire and fury" on the North while Pyongyang threatened to fire a salvo of missiles towards the US territory of Guam. "We have our dear supreme commander Kim Jong-Un. If he is by our side, our victory is certain," said James Dresnok, who also goes by his Korean name Hong Chol, in the video posted Friday. Donald Trump warns North Korea to 'be very, very nervous' 01:04 The late James Dresnok, known as Joe, crossed a minefield at age 21 to reach North Korea, after his wife divorced him and he was reportedly about to be court-martialed. He was the subject of a British documentary in 2006, Crossing the Line, and expressed satisfaction with his life in Pyongyang, whose citizens enjoy better standards of living than those elsewhere in the isolated country. He also told a CBS interview that he would not leave even if "you put a billion damn dollars of gold on the table".

    By Phil Stewart AL DHAFRA AIR BASE, United Arab Emirates (Reuters) - It may not sound possible to "catch" an American spy plane while driving a Dodge Charger. The plane itself was designed in the 1950s to grip the lightest parts of the atmosphere some 70,000 feet above the Earth, so, in the words of one of the U-2 pilots, "it really doesn't want to stop flying." Enter the Dodge Charger, which along with another so-called "chase car" helped guide the spy plane down to the runway, speeding at about 90 miles per hour - an operation perfected over the many years of the famed U-2 Dragon Lady's operations.

While sinkholes don't usually open in the middle of the road for no reason, it's been happening more in rapidly urbanising parts of China, where extensive roadworks shifts the soil underneath the asphalt. Authorities have yet to offer an official reason for the sinkhole. But users on Chinese social media website Weibo had little sympathy for the rider. "He's using a phone while riding a scooter. Sorry I really have no sympathy," said one user. "It's fine if you walk on the sidewalk while using your phone but this is too much, it's so dangerous," another chipped in. "What the heck was he thinking playing with his phone while riding?" one asked. Well one thing's for sure, he probably won't be using his phone while driving again for a long time.

Peter Madsen told the court that Swedish journalist Kim Wall had died in an accident and he had buried her at sea, changing his earlier statement the he dropped her off alive in Copenhagen Police later told a press conference that it was still too early to identify the body - missing its head, legs and arms - that was found by a passing cyclist.

The case is being followed particularly closely by Danish and Swedish media but has drawn interest from around the world. The body had been sent for forensic analysis while divers continued to search the area where it was found, Moller said.

Kim Wall disappeared after taking the trip Danish and Swedish maritime authorities are using divers, sonar and helicopters in the continued search for the body in Koge Bay, south of the city, and in the Oresund Strait between the two countries. Madsen, an entrepreneur, artist, submarine builder and aerospace engineer, went before a judge on Saturday for preliminary questioning.
