The Italian Interior Ministry has released figures on illegal immigration that show that arrivals are up more than 40 per cent so far this year. A total of 45,664 migrants landed in Italy illegally from January 1st to August 15th of this year, a number that is a 40.36 per cent increase over the same period last year, according to the interior Ministry statistics. The majority of the landings were autonomous, meaning that the migrants arrive on their own by boat, which accounted for 24,317 migrants, or 53.2 per cent of the total number who have come to Italy so far this year, Il Giornale reported . Just over 46 per cent of the migrants arrived after being rescued in Search and Rescue (SAR) operations, with 7,270 migrants being brought to Italy by migrant taxi NGOs that primarily operate in SAR areas off the North African coast.

The Chinese state-run Global Times newspaper applauded its bosses on Tuesday for playing “an increasing important role” in helping the Taliban cement its stranglehold on Afghanistan through business ventures, particularly in pursuit of the country’s vast mineral wealth. The Taliban, a Sunni terrorist organization, seized control of the country a year ago on Monday as a result of leftist American President Joe Biden extending the 20-year Afghan war beyond the previous deadline of May 1, 2021. The group, which had previously agreed to negotiations with the U.S.-backed Afghan government, responded to Biden extending the war into September, and then walking back the deadline to August, by launching tens of thousands of attacks on the government and ultimately making it into Kabul. Then-President Ashraf Ghani, who insists he remains president of Afghanistan to this day, immediately fled the country upon the Taliban’s arrival in the capital. Taliban jihadists have struggled to … [Read more...] about China Boasts ‘Increasing Important Role’ in Propping up the Taliban
COLOGNE, Germany—It finally happened, a decade's worth of expectation fulfilled with a simple push of a button. Though I still can't quite believe it (and a recent delay hasn't helped) Final Fantasy XV , a game that's taken on near mythical status alongside the likes of The Last Guardian , Beyond Good and Evil 2 , and Half Life 3 , is finally being released on November 29—and I've already played it. Selecting "New Game" has never been quite as satisfying before. Unfortunately for Square Enix, FF15 is unlikely to live up to expectations. Its development has simply been too long and its predecessors too divisive to escape the crushing inevitability of a game with this much hype and history behind it. Some will welcome Square Enix's take on the modern open-world RPG. Others will lust after the linear worlds of the PlayStation-era games. There will be those for whom nothing is more satisfying than a three-hour grind through a maze-like dungeon, while others will hope … [Read more...] about hands-on: Brave new direction or just pandering to fans?
A trade union official from the CISL union was attacked, robbed and kidnapped for around an hour by a group of migrants in a makeshift camp that conservatives have called to be closed. Mohammed Elmajdi, who serves as the territorial leader of the CISL union in the city of Foggia was visiting the “ghetto” area in Rignano Garganico in the Apulia region when he was attacked by a group of migrants for around an hour. Luigi Sbarra, national secretary of the CISL, denounced the attack saying, “Solidarity and closeness to the trade unionist victim of a cowardly aggression in the ghetto of Rignano. Full support to the CISL of Foggia that fights for the integration, inclusion, dignity of immigrants,” Il Giornale reports . According to the newspaper, the makeshift camp is home to around a thousand migrants, most of which work as local labourers and farmworkers.
