Gravity of charges increased as firefighting resources were stretched thin by recent larger fire
La Guardia costiera libica nega di aver sparato contro i pescherecci italiani al largo delle coste di Misurata, ammette solo di aver sparato colpi di avvertimento, uno dei quali avrebbe raggiunto il comandante dell’'Aliseo' Giuseppe Giacalone. Una circostanza che potrà essere confermata solo dopo la visita medica completa del comandante, ferito lievemente, e trasportato sulla nave della Marina militare italiana “Libeccio”, dicono all’Adnkronos fonti libiche. Che ribadiscono come i tre pescherecci non si trovassero in acque internazionali, come da loro sostenuto, ma nella Zona di protezione della pesca creata da Muammar Gheddafi nel 2005, quando estese da 12 a 74 miglia la zona economica esclusiva. “La pesca in acque internazionali nel Mediterraneo è un concetto che non ha più alcun valore dal punto di vista legale. I pescatori sostengono che si trovassero in acque internazionali, ma non è così”, spiegano le fonti. Le autorità italiane, da quando nelle settimane scorse i pescatori di Mazara del Vallo avevano annunciato l’intenzione di tornare al largo delle coste libiche, avevano più volte messo in guardia dal rischio di incidenti, come avvenuto a settembre, quando gli uomini di Khalifa Haftar avevano sequestrato 18 membri dell’equipaggio di due pescherecci, tenendoli in ostaggio per oltre tre mesi. E solo il 3 maggio scorso la fregata “Alpino” della Marina militare era dovuta intervenire a protezione di alcune imbarcazioni, verso le quali si dirigeva a tutta velocità un gommone proveniente dalla Cirenaica. “Si dovrebbe avviare una riflessione sull’ipotesi di sanzioni” contro chi si mette in mare in quelle aree nonostante “il forte sconsiglio” del governo, dicono fonti a conoscenza del dossier. “Si deve decidere che linea attuare, perché la politica libica è più conforme di quanto non lo sia quella italiana rispetto alla zona di protezione della pesca e delle loro risorse”, sottolineano.

ABID BHAT/AFP via Getty ImagesAs India hits a daily record of 412,262 COVID cases and 3,980 deaths, scammers are coming up with new and elaborate ways to exploit desperate families trying to save loved ones.The latest pandemic scheme? Passing fire extinguishers off as oxygen cylinders for patients in dire condition.On Thursday, local media outlets reported that Delhi police arrested three people for painting fire extinguishers and selling them as oxygen cylinders to family members of infected citizens. Police reportedly seized more than 530 extinguishers that had been dismantled, spray-painted, and sold as gas cylinders.A Right-Wing Demagogue Is Letting COVID Ravage His PeoplePolice uncovered the plot after the head of an Indian NGO, Radha Vallabh Sewa Sangh—who had fallen victim to the scheme himself—reported the fraudsters to local authorities. The accused were identified as 40-year-old Ravi Sharma, 38-year-old Mohammad Abdil, and 30-year old Shambhu Shah from Alipur, Delhi.“During enquiry, it was found that distributor Ravi Sharma was removing red paint [from] fire cylinders which were used for filling of CO2 and was converting them into oxygen cylinders by painting them black with the help of Abdil and Shah,” a police deputy commissioner told The India Times.When questioned by the police, the suspects reportedly copped to obtaining expired and empty fire extinguishers, recasting them, and selling them for about $180 each. The men admitted to having already sold “many” cylinders, police said.In addition to the cylinders, police seized grinders apparently used to chip off the original paint on the fire extinguishers, empty spray can bottles, paint boxes and brushes, about two dozen oxygen cylinders nozzles, a pipe wrench, and roughly $800 in cash.As India faces a devastating virus wave, a highly infectious virus variant, and crippling oxygen shortages, the fire extinguisher scheme is just one COVID-related scam sweeping the country.Indian Prime Minister Called Out for Building New, Billion-Dollar Residence Despite Deadly COVID ShortagesGovernment officials in India’s southern Karnataka state have been accused of selling hospital beds on the black market, social media fraudsters have been delivering counterfeit medicines to Indians scavenging for supplies on Twitter, and WhatsApp users have posed as doctors promising to deliver humidifiers and oxygen cylinders, only to block their victims after receiving cash app payments.Though India is known as the “world’s pharmacy,” the overwhelming COVID infection rate gripping the country has led to a severe shortage in oxygen, medical supplies and hospital beds. The circumstances have fueled the ambitions of fraudsters looking to capitalize on desperate families.Meanwhile, Indian Prime Minister Narenda Modi has been blasted for failing to appropriately handle the crisis, instead focusing on campaigning and falsely assuring the public that the situation is “under control.”Read more at The Daily Beast.Get our top stories in your inbox every day.

Trainer Bob Baffert, who won a record-setting seventh Kentucky Derby with Medina Spirit last week, said the dark bay colt had another light workout on Thursday and is currently in peak form ahead of next week's Preakness Stakes. Baffert said it takes about a week to determine if a horse will be ready in time for the Preakness Stakes but that Medina Spirit came out of the Kentucky Derby well, has jogged for two consecutive days and he sees no discouraging signs. "I'll know by the weekend how he is doing but so far he is actually handling it pretty well," twice Triple Crown winner Baffert, who is scheduled to return to Louisville over the weekend, said on a conference call.
