Some sad news…

Posted by Admin on June 24, 2006

Dear Readers,

We apologize for not being able to bring you the daily round-up of World & National News Links yesterday & today.  

My family is currently dealing with the loss of our beloved cat "Binx".  It is believed he was hit by a car about 6 weeks ago and he has been battling back from fractures and infection since that time.  Yesterday, he just couldn't hold on any longer.  He seemed to be in very little pain, and not too aware.  He died peacefully early this morning.

Our daily news links will most likely resume on Monday.
Thank you for your understanding,
Michelle K.

Sources in Ramadi in the restive al-Anbar province report that large groups of armed foreign militants are fleeing towards the Syrian border, as US and Iraqi forces tighten their siege on the city. Ramadi, some 100 kilometres west of Baghdad, is a stronghold of the insurgency and there are reports of many residents also fleeing in fear of an assault. Sources told Adnkronos International (AKI) that local tribes were also pursuing foreign terrorists "because of the immense damage they have done to infrastructure and the bad name they have given the insurgency by terror attacks against innocent civilians."

The apparent pipe bomb crashed through the window of the deputy's home around 4:10 a.m. Friday, six blocks from the home of a neighborhood activist who found a burning Molotov cocktail on her porch six months ago.
