Member of security watchdog OSCE killed in Ukraine

One member of European security watchdog OSCE’s monitoring mission in eastern Ukraine was killed and two others were injured after their vehicle drove over a mine near Luhansk.

An American man was killed and a German woman was injured on Sunday morning, a spokesman for Austria’s foreign ministry said . Austria holds the rotating presidency of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE).

Germany’s foreign ministry said two were injured, but gave no immediate details . The OSCE confirmed on Twitter that a patrol with six members and two armoured vehicles had been in a “serious incident” but gave no further information.

Three years after Moscow annexed the Crimean region, tensions between Ukraine and separatists in the Russian-held eastern part of the country remain high and a 2015 ceasefire agreement is violated regularly.

The Ukrainian military said the incident took place at 10:17 local time (0717 GMT) near the small village of Pryshyb, which is controlled by pro-Russian separatists.

The unarmed, civilian OSCE mission with more than 700 international observers was deployed in 2014 . The role of the monitors includes verifying the withdrawal of heavy weapons as agreed under the 2015 ceasefire agreement.

“It is a terrible tragedy,” German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel said in a statement, calling for “an immediate end to the violence and unjustified accusations, especially on the part of separatists in eastern Ukraine.”

“It is in the interest of everyone involved, especially the conflict parties on the line of engagement, that OSCE observers are able to carry out their important, indispensable, and at once difficult and dangerous work,” Gabriel said.

Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko and Austrian Foreign Minister Sebastian Kurz on Twitter both called for an investigation of the incident . Kurz said he had spoken to the mission’s ambassador, Ertugrul Apakan.

“Need thorough investigation; those responsible will be held accountable,” Kurz said on Twitter.

A spokesman for the OSCE said further information would be released as it became available.

The 57 member states of the OSCE, which include Ukraine, Russia and the United States, in March extended its monitoring in Ukraine by a year.

Gabriel said the OSCE patrols had clearly prevented a more serious military escalation in recent years.

Angela Merkel: ‘No doubt’ some refugees are a security threat

Ohhh, and when some people were saying that 1-2 years ago, Mrs Merkel and her political allies were calling them racist, fascist and xenophobes. Posted on 4/13/17 | 9:03 AM CEST

Yes Alan . Spying by security services . Current terrorism shows why we should do it, and a little thought shows us why it s so dangerous to overdo it.

As an example, consider the UK s snooper s charter . It completely tilts the balance between the State and the individual as far as electronic spying is concerned. You can also take international spying on friendly states too far . Take e.g . the UK installing phone taps on the EU in Brussels .

Or the CIA tapping Mrs . Merkel s phone. By your logic, EU countries would be fully justified in trying to tap Mrs . May s phone and using that to improve negotiation tactics on Brexit . After all that s what GHCQ is busily doing with the EU, right?

We will never accept terror oh really ?
I m surprised, it seemed that they have so far enjoyed it and made a lot to have it even more while at the same time bashing countries that made safety of their citizens top priority like Hungary or Poland.
What happened ?!? Posted on 4/13/17 | 9:37 AM CEST

@ab

What happened? Is there an election looming by any chance?

Should we tell Vlad & the Trolls? (sounds a bit like a 70 s /80 s punk rock band )

She d say anything to lure back voters the CDU has lost to the AfD . The Amazing thing is that the average German still believes that Merkel will somehow fix their broken society and all will be well, while they are increasingly governed from Ankara and somewhere from the shores of Lybia.

Ooops . . this can t be, can it?

And, now Frau Merkel having invited the many will come up with a plan to interrogate all to find the few

@Jodocus3

Seem to remember the DGSE was reputed to run a most effective commercial/industrial spying operation. A little thought actually shows why it is dangerous to underdo the electronic monitoring bit, many people would I suspect be quite accepting of the snoopers charter concepts and have no principled objections to it . I accept that there others who do.

As for international spying, information interpretation & intelligence gathering is what diplomats have always done, its akin to what the press/media do, electronics just changes the way its done.
Are you seriously suggesting that EU27 are not currently doing something similar?

BTW was it not a falling out with the head of the Luxembourg Secret Service which contributed to Junkers downfall as PM just before he became president of the Commission/
Who were they spying on?

‘Great British Bake Off’ Host Prue Leith Given Full-Time Security Protection To Guard Her From Threats

Prue Leith1 has revealed she s been given 24/7 protection ahead of her debut on The Great British Bake Off2 .

The food critic and restaurateur was announced as Mary Berry3 s replacement on the show earlier this month, following its move to Channel 4.

But the 77-year-old says she was shocked by the level of security provided by Love Productions, who make the show, after it was confirmed she would be joining Paul Hollywood as a judge.

But when Prue returned to her home in the Cotswolds, she discovered she had been granted the security protection anyway.

Prue is set to replace Mary Berry on the ‘Bake Off’ judging panel.

Prue also revealed that Mary Berry has been in touch to reassure her not to worry about any threats.

She revealed that Mary told her: Look, if there s a big story there might be somebody at the gate, but most people like the show.

It s quite nice walking into the supermarket and being asked: Are you the lady off the telly ? That happens to me now and I always enjoy it.

Prue also admitted she hadn t heard of new co-host Noel Fielding, who is replacing Mel Giedroyc and Sue Perkins with Sandi Toksvig. 456

The Great British Bake Off is expected to launch on Channel 4 later this year.

‘Great British Bake Off’: Where Are They Now?

Edd Kimber (winner, 2010)

Fresh from being crowned the winner of the first ever Bake Off , Ed quit his day job as a debt collector for Yorkshire Bank (which he hated) to follow his baking dream with a job in Raymond Blanc s restaurant Le Manoir as a pastry chef (what else?) . He s gone on to carve himself a career as a food writer with articles appearing in BBC Good Food magazine and on his blog theboywhobakes.co.uk . In 2011 he published his first cookbook, ran a pop-up bakery in Fortnum & Mason and is also the resident baker on The Alan Titchmarsh Show . Bake Off changed my life in the most amazing way .

It allowed me to follow my passion and fulfil my dreams in a way I never imagined, he said recently.
