WANTED : $12 Million Reward

The United States on Tuesday offered multimillion-dollar rewards for two officials of the Iran-backed Lebanese group Hezbollah as the Trump administration prepared to unveil a strategy to counter Tehran’s growing regional influence.

Washington will pay up to $7 million for information leading to the arrest of Talal Hamiyah, head of Hezbollah’s foreign operations, and up to $5 million for Fuad Shukr, a top Hezbollah military operative, the State Department said.

The rewards are the first offered by the United States for Hezbollah operatives in a decade, Nathan Sales, the US counterterrorism coordinator, told reporters.

“Today’s rewards are another step to increase the pressure on them and their organization,” said Sales.

Other extremists for whom the United States is offering rewards include Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the head of Islamic State, and Mohammad Jolani, the commander of al Qaeda’s Syrian branch.

Hamiyah has been on the department’s foreign terrorist list since 2015 and Shukr was added in 2013. The United States named Hezbollah as a foreign terrorist organization in 1997.

Nicholas Rasmussen, the head of the National CounterTerrorism Center, blamed the group for a litany of attacks around the world, and said it maintains a presence in “nearly every corner of the globe.”

Pointing to the arrests of two men in the United States in June for alleged activities on Hezbollah’s behalf, Rasmussen said that US intelligence agencies assess that the group is seeking an ability to strike inside “the homeland.”

Sales signaled that as part of US President Donald Trump’s soon-to-be unveiled Iran strategy, Washington would press countries that have yet to designate Hezbollah as an international terrorist group to do so.

“Additionally, some countries have chosen to designate only Hezbollah’s military wing, leaving its so-called political wing untouched,” he said, apparently referring to the 28-member European Union. “But that is a false distinction. Make no mistake. Hezbollah has no political wing. It is a single organization, a terrorist organization, and it is rotten to its core.”

Designating the group as a terrorist organization is “not merely symbolic,” he continued.

By not doing so, he said, countries “limit other governments’ ability to freeze Hezbollah’s assets, to shut down its front companies, to eliminate its fund-raising and recruiting capabilities and to prosecute Hezbolah associated networks. The United States will need allies in this fight.”

But winning support for an intensified campaign against Hezbollah could prove difficult for the administration.

The powerful Iran-backed organization is part of Lebanon’s fragile coalition government and commands enormous support for the social services it provides.

US Supreme Court overturns ruling banning travel ban

The US Supreme Court on Tuesday overturned an appeals court that canceled a previous ban on travel to the United States imposed by President Donald Trump on several Muslim-majority countries that ended.

The court has taken a decision in one of two cases to be heard, including a lawsuit filed by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) to remove the ban, which was set out in an executive order issued in March.

The court did not rule on another separate appeal filed by the state of Hawaii that the court had already accepted to hear. The case also filed a challenge to a separate ban on the entry of refugees for 120 days, which has not yet expired.

Indian Supreme Court banned the sale of crackers before the Diwali Festival

India's top court ordered a temporary ban on the sale of firecrackers in New Delhi on Monday, ahead of the Diwali festival that leaves the city shrouded in toxic smog.

The decision comes a little over a week before the Hindu festival of lights, when Delhi fills with acrid smoke from celebratory firecrackers set off day and night.

The onset of winter usually worsens the situation as cooler temperatures trap the pollutants, exacerbated by crop burning in neighbouring states.

Acting on a petition, the supreme court directed that all licences to sell firecrackers in New Delhi and neighbouring cities be suspended until October 31. 

"The court has made it clear that all licences stand banned forthwith," Haripriya Padmanabhan, one of the petitioners, told the NDTV news network after the order.

India's notoriously poor air quality causes over 1 million premature deaths every year, according to a joint report by two US-based health research institutes earlier this year.

A 2014 World Health Organisation survey of more than 1,600 cities ranked Delhi as the most polluted.

At midday on Monday, the US embassy showed that the concentration of PM2.5 - the fine particles linked to higher rates of chronic bronchitis, lung cancer and heart disease - was at an "unhealthy" level.

The top court imposed a similar ban last November when Delhi's air quality reached "hazardous" levels after Diwali, forcing schools to shut and a temporary ban on construction.

But the November order was briefly lifted last month, allowing residents to buy firecrackers ahead of Diwali, which falls on October 19 this year.

"I guess those people will end up bursting them, so it's not a 100 per cent victory," Mr Padmanabhan said.
