    Israel reopened its only goods crossing with the Gaza Strip on Wednesday after closing it to most deliveries on July 9 over months of border tensions, as relative calm returned and truce talks progressed. An Israeli official said on condition of anonymity that an initial set of "understandings" had been reached with the help of Egypt and United Nations officials, leading to calm over the last several days and the opening of the crossing. Humanitarian issues in the blockaded Gaza Strip and the return of the soldiers can be addressed if calm is maintained, the official said, adding that if not, Israel would return to "aggressive" military action.

  • Rising sea levels threatens coastal cities with more tsunamis, scientists warn

    Golocal247.com news

    Tsunamis will become more common and more ferocious with global warming, scientists have warned after a study found that global sea level rises will increase the risk of coastal cities being wiped out. Smaller earthquakes that currently pose no serious tsunami threat could unleash waves capable of inundating coastal cities, researchers found in a study focusing on the city of Macau in China. Currently it is considered safe from tsunamis, despite lying within a major earthquake zone. At today's sea level, it would take a very powerful earthquake tipping past magnitude 8.8 to cause widespread tsunami flooding in Macau. But a half-metre rise in sea level - predicted to occur in the region by 2060 - could more than double the chances of a huge tsunami swamping the territory, according to the research. A three-foot sea level rise, expected by 2100, would increase the risk up to 4.7 times. The source of the earthquake danger is the Manila Trench, a massive crack in the floor of the South China Sea formed by the collision of two tectonic plates. It has generated numerous earthquakes, though none larger than magnitude 7.8 since the 1560s. A modest rise in sea levels would greatly amplify the tsunami threat from smaller earthquakes, the computer simulation study showed. Cities most prone to natural disaster Lead researcher Dr Robert Weiss, from Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University (Virginia Tech) in the US, said: "Our research shows that sea-level rise can significantly increase the tsunami hazard, which means that smaller tsunamis in the future can have the same adverse impacts as big tsunamis would today. "The South China Sea is an excellent starting point for such a study because it is an ocean with rapid sea-level rise and also the location of many mega cities with significant worldwide consequences if impacted." The team's findings are reported in the journal Science Advances.

Ford said total investment in the development of the train station and developing 45 acres of vacant land will cost approximately $740 million over the next four years.

  • Pope Francis expresses 'shame and sorrow' over Pennsylvania paedophile priest scandal 

    Golocal247.com news

    Pope Francis has expressed "shame and sorrow" over the latest paedophile priest scandal and vowed to "root out this tragic horror". The Vatican said Francis was "on the side" of victims following recent revelations that 301 "predator priests" operated in the US state of Pennsylvania over the last seven decades, in many cases having their crimes covered up by the Church. In a statement the Vatican said: "Victims should know that the pope is on their side. Those who have suffered are his priority, and the Church wants to listen to them, to root out this tragic horror that destroys the lives of the innocent. "There are two words that can express the feelings faced with these horrible crimes: shame and sorrow." Francis had faced mounting criticism in the United States for remaining silent for two days after the 884-page report into the Pennsylvania scandal was released on Tuesday. A sweeping grand jury report uncovered credible allegations against more than 300 priests and identified more than 1000 victims Credit: AFP On Wednesday a Vatican official had said there was "no comment". The report identified around 1,000 victims and indicated there may be thousands more. In its statement the Vatican said: "The Holy Father understands well how much these crimes can shake the faith and the spirit of believers." Only two of the Pennsylvania priests were charged as a result of the investigation, due to the state's statute of limitations running out, but the Vatican said abusers must still be held accountable. It said: "The Church must learn hard lessons from its past, and there should be accountability for both abusers and those who permitted abuse to occur." Profile | Pope Francis More than 100 of the priests are dead, and many others have already retired or been dismissed. The catalogue of crimes included one case in which five sisters from the same family were abused by the same priest. Another clergyman accused of abuse was given a reference by his diocese to get a job driving a train at Walt Disney World. According to the report priests "weaponised faith" by telling children the abuse would mean they went to Heaven, and that they would "go to Hell" if they told anyone what had happened.

As cranes moved in to shift truck-sized chunks of broken concrete, hundreds of firefighters searched for survivors, while public shock and grief turned to anger over the state of the 1.2 km-long bridge, completed in 1967 and overhauled two years ago.
