The controversial Kandahar police chief, described by Human Rights Watch last year as the southern province's "torturer in chief", had risen through the ranks to become one of the most powerful security heads in Afghanistan. Widely seen as a bulwark against the Taliban insurgency, Raziq's death has left a dangerous security vacuum that one observer said could lead to a "meltdown" in the south, the Taliban movement's birthplace.

  • Stop tattling on people smoking weed, Toronto police warn in cheeky tweets

    Golocal247.com news

    Marijuana became legal in Canada on Wednesday, and authorities are still trying to get used to it. Toronto's police have been pretty blunt about the matter, telling people to stop tattling on their neighbours for smoking weed or possessing pot plants. SEE ALSO: Pass the poutine: Weed is now legal in Canada and everyone's celebrating The directive came in a series of funny tweets, comparing the reporting of smoking or possession to trivial matters, like calling 911 to ask for directions or what one should do with frozen meat in the case of a power outage. "Do not call police for this," the tweets read. Asking for directions because you're lost is not a 911 call. Reporting an adult smoking a joint isn't either. Cannabis is no longer illegal on October 17, 2018. Consumption is allowed anywhere cigarette smoking is allowed except in a motor vehicle. Do not call police for this ^sm pic.twitter.com/7SoescfLM5 — Toronto Police (@TorontoPolice) October 16, 2018 Asking police to call your friend because you are out of minutes is not a 911 call. Calling about your neighbour's pot plants isn't either. Cannabis is no longer illegal on October 17, 2018. Up to four cannabis plants will be allowed per household. Do not call police for this ^sm pic.twitter.com/1rUvR9yvcT — Toronto Police (@TorontoPolice) October 16, 2018 Asking what to do with your frozen meat during a power outage is not a 911 call. Smelling weed coming from your neighbour's home isn't either. Cannabis is no longer illegal on October 17, 2018. Consumption is allowed for anyone 19yrs or older. Do not call police for this ^sm pic.twitter.com/6aYhbStarS — Toronto Police (@TorontoPolice) October 16, 2018 Canada is the second country in the world to legalize marijuana (behind Uruguay), but the laws do vary from province to province. In the Netherlands, where marijuana tourism is rampant in Amsterdam, weed is in fact illegal, but personal use has been decriminalized. In Ontario for instance, residents can only buy marijuana online from a government-run site. Then from April 1, privately-run physical stores will be allowed to sell weed.  In the meantime, Toronto Police still intend to crack down on illegal dispensaries, with the Ontario government deeming physical stores selling weed to be afoul of the law until April.  These stores have been encouraged to shut down and apply for a license to sell or risk being shut out of the legal market. With that said, authorities say they won't be that vigilant against dispensaries that choose to stay open. "There will not be 100,000 police officers landing in the city of Toronto shutting down every element of a dispensary, but we will be shutting them down," Toronto police Chief Mark Saunders told the Canadian Press. It's a different story in other provinces, where brick-and-mortar stores across the country welcomed the first buyers at the crack of midnight.  WATCH: There's a robot dog empire in the making and Boston Dynamics has some worthy competitors – Genius Moments

  • Key Afghan police chief killed in shooting at governor's compound after meeting with US general

    Golocal247.com news

    A powerful Afghan police general has been assassinated in an insider attack, robbing president Ashraf Ghani of a key security official and threatening his fragile grip on southern Afghanistan. Gen Abdul Razik was shot dead alongside the Kandahar spy chief and provincial governor shortly after a meeting with the top US military commander in the country. The Taliban said they were behind the attack which saw one of the provincial governor's bodyguards open fire after a meeting with Gen Scott Miller, the top Nato and US commander in Afghanistan. Gen Miller was unhurt, but two Americans were wounded. The assassination dealt a severe blow to Mr Ghani's security forces less than 48 hours before he attempts to hold nationwide parliamentary elections against a backdrop of brutal insurgent violence. Gen Raziq had been the most powerful government figure in southern Afghanistan for much of the past decade, where as Kandahar police chief he had been an aggressive opponent of the Taliban. A NATO helicopter lands at the Resolute Support headquarters in Kabul, Afghanistan Credit: MOHAMMAD ISMAIL/REUTERS His young age and boyish looks belied a ruthless commander and he was accused of systematic torture, extrajudicial killings, and enforced disappearances. He denied the accusations. However Western commanders considered him a bulwark against the encroaching Taliban and one of their most effective partners as he brought a measure of stability to Afghanistan's second city. He estimated he had survived dozens of assassination attempts. The Taliban named the attacker as Abu Dujana and said: “The brutal police chief of Kandahar has been killed along several other officials.” Said Jan Khakrezwal, the head of the provincial council, told Reuters: "Provincial officials including the governor, the police chief and other officials were accompanying the foreign guests to the plane when the gunshots happened." The shooting wiped out the top of Kandahar's security apparatus at a stroke, also killing the province's intelligence chief Abdul Mohmin and provincial governor Zalmay Wesa. The killings came only a day after a prominent politician, Abdul Jabar Qahraman, became the tenth election candidate to die ahead of Saturday's polls when a Taliban bomb was hidden under his chair. Graeme Smith, a former UN political analyst in Kabul said: “The incident will make the military balance in southern Afghanistan considerably more fragile, as Raziq was often at the forefront of government efforts to slow the Taliban’s advances.” Saturday will see Afghanistan's only third parliamentary election since the Taliban were ousted. The insurgents have vowed to disrupt what they call a bogus poll.
