Sana'a, Turkish Embassy
BREAKING: Riots at the Turkish Embassy!
Yemen TV camera crew in the protest
Host Ameera: "We are seeing a massive demonstration here in Sana'a right next to the Turkish embassy, presumably following the controversial and vindictive statement by Turkey, Naming the Houthi as no more than a terrorist organization!"
Protestors are seen in the backgrounds hurling stones at the embassy as the guards go inside and lock the gate
Host Ameera: "It looks like they are locking down the Embassy, let's interview one of the protestors."
One of the protestors covering their face with a Shemagh approach the microphone
Host Ameera: "Do you have anything to say to the Turkish government?"
Protestor: "We stood up to Kings, Emirs and the western oil tycoons! We will not be insulted by a so called 'nation' which is living in the shadow of it's former self. We demand an apology from the Turkish leadership and we request our Prime Minister to cut all ties with Turkey!"
The camera pans to a crowd in a circle, burning the ottoman flag
Host Ameera: "Thank you. We will keep you updated after this short break."
Crowd Chanting: "This sick man will fall again!"
Local Police begin pacifying the crowd

Australia to support Central America in fighting the Matanzas fuel tank fires
On Friday, a bolt of lightening struck a crude oil warehouse in Matanzas on the island of Cuba. Today, the fourth of eight supertanks of crude oil exploded, with the fire showing no signs of stopping.
Under the recent PERD (Pacific Emergency Response Directorate) initiative with the TPA, Australia and other members of the alliance have become more dedicated and organised in helping member states with emergency response. This will be the second time PERD has come into action since it's foundation last month, but the first time Australia will be fully involved.
The Australian contingent will consist of 17 firefighters (2 RFS Isuzu Category 1 Tanker (Wingello, Potato Point), 1 FENZ Mitshubishi Fuso Canter Foam Tender (Onehunga)) and a Coulson B727 airtanker bomber. The Federal Australian Air Force will also help in carrying equiptment over to Matanzas with 1 C-130J Super Hercules and 1 Airbus A330 MRTT.
The aircraft will depart from Sydney to Auckland, where they will pick up FENZ's foam tender, then to Suva to refuel, then on to San Francisco, then finally to Matanzas, where it will arrive two days from now.

Highlight from townhall with Sultan Süleyman III in Selanik
Selin Kanoğlu: ‘My Sultan, for the across the world we have seen nations that invaded and colonized the world apologize for the sins they committed. Is it not time that we accept the sins that our forefathers committed in the construction of this empire just as the rest of the world is doing? Did our ancestors not invade these lands like how the French invaded Africa?’
Sultan Süleyman III: ‘We did not. We did not invade anywhere my child. We conquered the hearts of the people where we stepped foot on, we did not. We did not oppress nor did we exploit those who became part of the sublime realm. We did not crush the people of the lands that became part of the sublime realm, unlike those whose sins abroad are untold, we did not outlaw the religions or languages of the people that joined our sublime realm. As has always been the case, when they were committing these sins, it was the people fleeing to our sublime realm for refugee. We brought peace, we brought stability, we brought justice, we brought coexistence. When our great ancestor Sultan Mehmet the Conqueror reached the walls of İstanbul, the people cried out that they wished to become part of the realm that remain a slave to the Latin order. Unlike the First Roman Empire and Second Roman Empire before us, we preserved and protect the diversity of our sublime realm. Today Serbian, Albanian, Hungarian, Bulgarian, Greek, Armenian, Kurdish, Arabic, and Ladino, are they still spoken, yes of course. We ruled over these lands for nearly a millennia, if we had wished would we have not erased these languages, making them forget their faiths. Destroying the churches and synagogues, and by sword would have erased all non Muslims from our realm, making them forget of an era before. We never did, we never would. My child, that is the difference between the invasion of the people and conqueror of the hearts of the people. If my words are not enough, our history reminds us of this, their history reminds us of this. Travel the world and our sublime realm, then truly my child you will see the truth, and the big lie that the foreign powers are seeking to play as they have always done to try and divide our sublime realm.’

Lessons from the Commemoration of the Martyrdom of Imam Husayn (radi allahu anhu)
Bismillah, ar-Rahman, ir-Raheem, as-salaamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh. The day of Ashura is the most important day of one of the most important months in the Islamic calendar (Muharram), and though this has become more of a Shia-dominant commemoration, it is important for ALL Muslims, Sunni, Shia, and of various backgrounds and ideologies as well.
Our country is dominantly Sunni, but the core of Islam regardless of sect is worshipping Allah alone, believing that Muhammad (salallahu alayhi wa salaam) was His final Messenger and Prophet, 5 prayers a day at set times, paying alms-tax (zakat) and intending to make the Hajj pilgrimage at least once before death. All Muslims believe in Allah, His Books (Torah, original Gospels, original Psalms, and the Quran), His messengers (Prophets), His angels, the Day of Judgement, and Divine Will. Any Sunni who can put aside their sectarianism must absolutely see the Battle of Karbala and the martyrdom of Husayn (radi allahu anhu, may Allah be pleased with him) and those fighting against the unjust and corrupt Umayyah Caliph Yazid as an example of the oppression of Husayn and his supporters by Yazid and his followers.
We Sunnis should not simply say "oh, that's just a Shia thing, we shouldn't care about that", because not only was this one of the most unjust and horrible things to happen to the Ummah, but also an example of what lust for the power and glory of this world over the Hereafter can do to even so-called Caliphs like Yazid.
Muharram in general is a month of reflection on the current oppressions and aggressive wars of the world, and a time where ALL Muslims, regardless of sect or ideology, must commit themselves to always standing with the oppressed and against the oppressors. Oppression of Shia Muslims by Sunnis anywhere is a horrendous deviation from the core of Islam, and the same is true of oppression of Sunni by Shia. The oppression of non-Muslims by Muslims is evil and harmful to one's soul and should not be tolerated, as well.
Sectarian violence is one of the biggest problems facing the Ummah today, without a single doubt, and impedes any real possibility of uniting the Ummah on the basis of the 5 Pillars and 6 Articles of faith mentioned above. In many sahih ahadith (Highest-grade sayings and wisdom of the Prophet (saws) as well as in many places in the Quran itself, the evil of a Muslim oppressing, injuring, or killing another Muslim is emphasized greatly. Sadly, while Islam is a perfect creed from Allah, Muslims are merely imperfect humans, and humanity has a tendency to split into differing sects and groups based on personal opinions, egotism, narrow-mindedness, ideology, culture, and politics. In shaa Allah all Muslims can learn from our history and move towards diversity of opinions but unity of faith, and put Allah above worldly concerns of politics and sectarian bickering.

Damage and casualties
Regarding casualties, official media identified the only deceased reported so far as Juan Carlos Santana Garrido, 62, who worked in the special fire protection command of a refinery in Cienfuegos province.

The authorities did not identify the missing and announced that the recovery of the bodies will not begin until the fire is extinguished. The Ministry of Health, for its part, reported that of the twenty people who remained hospitalized, five are in critical condition and two are dead. Around 5,000 inhabitants of the surrounding area have been evacuated and the authorities asked the residents of Matanzas to close doors and windows to avoid the potential inhalation of toxic gases.

Ministry of Foreign Affairs - Islahh
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs confirms that the Government will provide Yemen with up to $80 million RMB in emergency humanitarian and developmental aid to help the country restabilize and rebuild following its internal conflict, with the first shipment of aid to be transported to the country next week by charter flight.
The Ministry will work closely with the Yemeni interim government to ensure that aid reaches those affected in time and helps local people overcome their current difficulties. The $80 million RMB aid package includes a $40 million RMB one-off grant to help fund governmental institutions, with the remainder coming in the form of physical aid such as medicines, packaged foods, bedding, and so on. We have faith that, with the concerted efforts of all stakeholders, the Yemeni people will overcome their difficulties, rebuild their communities, and return to their normal lives.

Hualong One Nuclear Reactor Deal
In the efforts to decrease the use of non-renewables in the Korean energy sector, Korea has signed a deal with the China National Nuclear Corporation (CNNC) on the construction and use of the Hualong One nuclear reactors in 2 units of the nuclear power plant in Wonsan of the People's Republic. The plant in Wonsan currently has two operating APR-1000 reactors with a generating capacity of over 3000 MWs, or enough to power at least 1,800,000 homes.
With this new deal for 2 Hualong One Reactors, in partnership between CNNC of Zhonghua Minzu Gongheguo and the Korea Electric Power Corporation (KEPCO), will increase the Wonsan's plant capacity by 2200 MW. The Hualong One is a Chinese Generation III pressurized water nuclear reactor and its derived export version is called HPR1000, which will be employed in Korea. The use of reactors from China will reduce maintenance cost in sourcing parts from the People's Republic's closest neighbor.
TSPR Naval Transfer Deal
Today, the Korean People's Navy agreed to transfer 2 ships of the 1,220-ton Pohang Class Corvettes to the Phra Hanuman Navy as they retire from service. Built throughout the 1980s, they served well as patrol vessels across Korean waters, from Dokdo to Jeju island. The 2 vessels to be decommissioned and transferred are the KPN Daecheon and Sokcho built in 1989 and 1990 respectively. Alongside the ships, Korea will provide TSPR, as a Pattaya Pact member, the necessary resources and ammunition to upkeep the use of these vessels. Korea also expressed willingness to change to armaments in accordance to the TSPR's defence needs.
