NORWAY: The central bank’s deputy governor Jon Nicolaisen stepped down yesterday after being denied a renewal of security clearance because his wife is Chinese.
The move comes at a time when several Western governments are cracking down on people with links to China.
“The Norwegian Civil Security Clearance Authority informs me that the reason that I will not receive a renewed security clearance is that my wife is a Chinese citizen,” he said.
ETHIOPIA: The army has closed border crossings and stopped fleeing Tigrayan refugees from reaching Sudan, Sudanese troops say.
Over 45,000 Tigrayans have fled into Sudan so far since the Ethiopian government sent troops into their state to crush the Tigrayan People’s Liberation Front (TPLF) regional government.
TPLF spokesman Getachew Reda called on Thursday for Tigrayans to “rise up and deploy to battle in tens of thousands” against the government, which says it has won the war.
ISRAEL: A man was arrested yesterday suspected of responsibility for an arson attack on the Church of All Nations in east Jerusalem.
The Roman Catholic church is located in the Garden of Gethsemane and contains bedrock on which Jesus is said to have prayed the night before his arrest, as recounted in the Gospels.
Israeli police did not speculate on a motive but a number of Jewish extremist organisations have launched attacks on Christian sites in the Holy Land.
QATAR: Foreign Minister Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman al-Thani said yesterday that the Gulf kingdom did not plan to follow Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates in recognising Israel.
Qatar would continue to require progress on an independent Palestinian state with its capital in east Jerusalem for that, he said, adding that he did not see how normalising relations with Tel Aviv would “add value to the Palestinian people.”
