Family, child in Indonesia suicide attack

A family of Islamist militants, including an eight-year-old girl, carried out a suicide bombing against police in the Indonesian city of Surabaya, a day after another militant family killed 13 people in suicide attacks on three churches in the same city.

The suicide bombers rode two motorbikes up to a checkpoint outside a police station and blew themselves up, Tito Karnavian, the police chief in Indonesia’s second-largest city, told a news conference on Monday.

He said the girl survived the explosion, and CCTV footage showed a child stumbling around in the aftermath.

Four officers and six civilians were wounded in the attack, East Java police spokesman Frans Barung Mangera said.

President Joko Widodo has branded the attacks in Surabaya the “act of cowards” and pledged to push through a new anti-terrorism bill to combat Islamist militant networks.

After some major successes tackling Islamist militancy since 2001, there has been a resurgence in recent years, including in January 2016 when four suicide bombers and gunmen attacked a shopping area in central Jakarta. Police suspect Sunday’s attacks on the churches were carried out by a cell of the Islamic State-inspired group Jemaah Ansharut Daulah (JAD), an umbrella organisation on a US State Department terrorist list that is believed to have drawn hundreds Indonesian sympathisers of Islamic State.

“In the case of Surabaya, they escaped detection, but once it happened we moved fast to identify their network,” Karnavian said.

The father of the family involved in those attacks was the head of a JAD cell in the city, the police chief said.

Earlier, police said his family was among 500 Islamic State sympathisers who had returned from Syria, but the police chief said that was incorrect.

During the hunt for the cell, police shot dead one suspect and arrested four others.

The police chief said the JAD cell may have been answering a call from Islamic State in Syria to “cells throughout the world to mobilise.”

He said the imprisonment of JAD’s leader, Aman Abdurrahman, could be another motive, and cited clashes with Islamist prisoners at jail near Jakarta last week in which five counter-terrorism officers were killed.

In another incident in Sidoarjo, south of Surabya, Karnavian said police recovered unexploded pipe bombs an apartment where an explosion killed three members of a family alleged to have been making bombs. Three children from the family survived and were taken to hospital.

In all, 25 people have died since Sunday in attacks, including 13 suspected militants, Karnavian said.

CCTV footage of the blast outside the police station on Monday morning showed two motorbikes arriving at a checkpoint next to a car followed by an explosion as officers approached.

Security experts said it was the first time in Indonesia that a child had been used by militants on a suicide mission.

“The objective of using a family for terror acts is so it is not easily detected by the police,” said Indonesian terrorism analyst Stanislaus Riyanta.

QUIET AT THE FRONTThe official correspondent with the n forces reports: The front continues for the most part entirely quiet. As I overlooked a great part of the n line on Sunday, I could scarcely believe that war existed in this landscape. The country spread before us only here and there showed signs of the wear and tear of the warfare which lately descended on it.Here and there the grass showed patches like a threadbare carpet, where it has been torn by many shells, or worn by congested traffic. Occasionally one fitful shell pecked like an angry bird at some roadside in the foreground. For the rest nothing stirred. Two soldiers on a bank played with a dog which was left on some farm. The army is still waiting for the heavy blow which will certainly be attempted.

THE THIRD PHASEMr Philip Gibbs states: The long postponement of the enemy’s assault seems definite proof that his losses in the earlier offensives were so heavy that he was obliged to abandon costly tactical blows, in order to prepare for new battles on a wide front.

Mr Gibbs is of opinion that the enemy will not strike until he has completed fresh formations, and their special training, in order to resume the offensive, on something like the scale of the 21st March. That process may be near completion, he says, but we have gained invaluable time, and the enemy has thereby lost his greatest, and perhaps, his only chance of victory. Our gaps are refilled, and our troops rested and refreshed.

THE TOTAL TO DATEThe weekly return issued by the Defence Department on Sunday shows that the casualties in the AIF to date totalled 244,411. Details are: Died, 45,883; missing, 534; prisoners of war, 2935; wounded, 124,384; sick, 70,461; unspecified, 214. The figures for deaths, missing and prisoners of war and casualties not specified show the actual net totals after all corrections consequent upon erroneous and later advices have been taken into account. The figures for sick and wounded show the gross totals, and are in excess of the actual number, as many men are admitted to hospital more than once.

OFFENCES BY SOLDIERSSenator Pearce, the Minister for Defence, has intimated that the names of soldiers who desert are to be made public. The decision should meet with general satisfaction. The people of are quite ready to give honour to the men who enlist, but it is necessary that they should be protected from imposition on the part of those who throw aside their obligations and desert their comrades. It is also desirable that men who enlist and are put out of the forces for disciplinary reasons should not be allowed to associate themselves with any of the organisations which are formed by returned soldiers. It is well known that many men are returned to for disciplinary reasons without ever having been near the firing line. These men, whose misconduct is sometimes deliberately engaged in, in order to secure their discharge, come back to this country and pose as men worthy of the support of those engaged in the patriotic movement. If that sort of thing is permitted to continue, it must ultimately undermine the confidence of the public in the returned soldiers’ organisations, from which so much good is expected. The man who is put out of the army because there is no chance of making a soldier of him is not entitled to any consideration from the public. He should not be permitted to pose as a returned soldier, and to do so should be made an offence under the War Precautions Act. The men who have been at the front are, moreover, entitled to some badge which should distinguish them from the men whose military careers terminated in the training camps, when they were pronounced physically unfit to bear their share in the true work of the soldier. It has been officially stated that since the commencement of the war ten thousand men who were sent overseas have been returned to this country to be discharged on the ground of physical unfitness. There is no need to condemn these men. The majority of them no doubt joined the forces with the honest desire to do their share. But they were all unable to do it, and they should not be permitted to pose as though they had done it. The number of men returned for disciplinary reasons is constantly increasing. No one wishes to make their lot in life hard, but there are strong objections to be urged against their being allowed to appear before the public on the same plane as the men who have been in the firing line.

ENLISTMENT OF MINORSThe regulation concerning the enlistment of youths without the consent of their parents was issued on Saturday. It is provided that these young recruits will not be taken into camp until they have attained the age of 18½ years. During the period which elapses between enlistment and the time when they attain the age of 18½ they will he placed on leave without pay.

NEWCASTLE RECRUITINGAn excellent record was put up at Newcastle for the week ended on Saturday, 62 recruits presenting themselves for enlistment, and 42 being accepted.A special effort is to be made on Friday next, which is “Five Hundred Day.” This is an effort promoted by the sportsmen’s recruiting committee. Mr E.S. Marks, the hon. secretary of the committee, was in Newcastle on Sunday to confer with Sergeant-major Desmond, who will have control of the Newcastle arrangements. On the occasion of the last special effort by the Sportsmen’s Recruiting Committee on July 27, 1917, Newcastle won the flag of honour presented for obtaining the greatest number of recruits. Newcastle is the only centre outside Sydney where the forthcoming special appeal will be made.

A SOLDIER’S THANKSAt a meeting of the League o[ Honour, held at the Anzac Institute, Newcastle, on Saturday night, Dr May Harris presiding, Miss Amy Hudson, the honorary secretary, reported having received the following letter from a Newcastle soldier at the front:

“In the Field, March 3, 1918. I wish to thank you and the league, on behalf of my children, for the Christmas gifts they received, which by their letters to me they highly appreciated. I have a wife and four children, and they cannot get too many toys on military pay, with the price things are now; but it is all in the game that we are playing over here. I only hope we beat the Germans by next Christmas, and be home with our little ones again. I think there is a good chance of that coming off. Thanking all once again for making the soldiers happy.”

INSURING RECRUITSThe members of the Newcastle Club have been giving consideration to the payment of the premiums on the life insurance policies of local married men with dependants who enlist. Up to the present arrangements have been made for the payment of the premiums on the policies during the period of the war, and it is expected that the number will be increased.

KURRI KURRIMrs A. Lamb, of Maitland Street, Kurri Kurri, has been further advised that her son, Private A. H. Hitchcock, 35th Battalion, was killed in action in Belgium on October 13 last year, and was buried at Tyne Cottage Cemetery. The official notification adds: “The British Government appointed a National Committee to care for the graves of our officers and men after the war, and has, in agreement with the French Government, undertaken to provide for their maintenance in perpetuity. The cemeteries as a whole are grass sown and planted with shrubs. where military conditions allow, under the advice of the Director of the Royal Botanical Gardens, Kew. Their maintenance is under the supervision of officers of the Graves Registration Units. In every case a durable wooden cross is erected, showing complete regimental particulars. It is understood photographs of the graves are being taken as soon as is possible, and these will be transmitted to next of kin. These additional details are furnished by direction, it being the policy of the department to forward all information received in connection with the death of members of the n Imperial Force.”

LATE SERGEANT GARREDFollowing the announcement that Sergeant A. D. Garred was reported missing on 5th April, 1918, Mrs D. J. Garred, of Raymond Terrace, hasbeen officially informed that her son was killed in action on that date. Sergeant Garred enlisted as a private in September, 1914, leaving Melbourne on December 22 of the same year. He participated in the landing on the Gallipoli Peninsula, being a member of Colonel Burnage’s Battalion. After being on the peninsula about a fortnight, he was wounded during an attack on ‘Pope’s Hill,’ having the lower part of his ear blown off. He jocularly remarked that he was “well-ear-marked”. After a short absence in hospital in Egypt, he returned to the Peninsula and was taken ill, and landed at Malta for hospital treatment, necessitating an absence of about four weeks. He again returned to the peninsula. After the evacuation he was promoted corporal, and transferred to the 45th Battalion, being among those sent to France. He participated in various actions in France until August, 1916, when he was wounded in the left hand and foot. After an absence of about 10 weeks in England, he returned to France, but during the winter of 1916-17 he contracted trench feet, and was again sent to England for treatment, where he remained about six months. Returning to France he was promoted sergeant, and participated in the advance of the Allies during the summer of 1917. In his letters received prior to the announcement by telegram of his death, he stated that he expected to be able to come home on six months’ furlough, but the advance of the Germans evidently stopped all leave, and resulted in his death. Sergeant Garred would have attained his 28th birthday next July.

LIEUTENANT MCMAHONMr and Mrs R. McMahon, of High Street, Greta, have received word that their son, Lieutenant L. S. McMahon, was officially reported missing from 8th of May. Lieutenant: McMahon sailed in May, 1916, and has been in the trenches for eighteen months.

Support for Foley, Hanigan out for Tahs

NSW Waratahs goalkicker Bernard Foley has received a strong endorsement after a couple of costly misses in Saturday night’s heartbreaking Super Rugby loss to the Crusaders.

Wallabies five-eighth Foley missed a late potential game-winning 40-metre penalty goal attempt and and an easier chance earlier in the half, as the Waratahs lost by two points after leading by 29.

NSW also suffered physical blows from that game with four forwards battling to be fit for Saturday’s home clash with the Highlanders.

Wallabies lock-flanker Ned Hanigan will miss at least two games with a medial ligament knee injury, lock Rob Simmons has a shoulder issue and hooker Damien Fitzgerald and flanker Will Miller each copped a head knock.

Waratahs attack coach Chris Malone is hopeful all bar Hanigan could be fit to face the Highlanders, although the extent of Simmons’ issue is not yet known.

Malone came out strongly in support of Foley when asked if he had any concerns about the pivot’s goalkicking or if they might occasionally consider using centre Kurtley Beale.

Foley had the competition’s second-best success rate of 87 per cent prior to last weekend.

“I was a goalkicker myself and I know you’ll sometimes have an off day,” Malone said.

“Obviously there were a couple of big kicks in that game that potentially could have won the game for us and Bernard himself was really disappointed in that.

“But we’ll go away and work on the things that he didn’t do quite so well on a couple of those kicks on the weekend.

“He’s been kicking really well, so any time there’s an option for us to take a shot at goal, it will definitely be Bernard Foley.

“I’ve been his kicking coach now for a number of years and he’s shown us in big games that he’s got the mental capacity to nail them.”

The Waratahs have retained the n conference lead going into the third of a brutal block of four successive games against New Zealand sides, but have the Melbourne Rebels breathing down their necks just one point behind.

Malone said the Tahs weren’t shying way from the fact they had lost three straight games and there was “good steel in the team”.

“A lot of the commentary afterwards was about us letting such a good lead slip, but one thing I would say was in order to put ourselves in that position, there was some of the best footy that we played in a long time,” he said.

Real bodies hit the fashion week catwalk

Real-size models have walked the runway at the swim show during Fashion Week in Sydney.Something unusual has appeared on the catwalk at n Fashion Week – curvy models.

What’s more, they were wearing bikinis.

The week’s famous swim show that showcases the resort or trans-seasonal offerings from swimwear brands, was given a jolt of reality this year with the designers opting to show their swimwear on models of all heights, shapes and sizes.

NSW label, Camp Cove Swim, elicited a cheer from the audience as retro prints and high-waisted pants were modelled on a variety of body shapes on the catwalk at Sydney’s Carriageworks on Monday.

“Actual butts on the runway. I love you Camp Cove Swim. Real girls real gorgeous,” Isabella Manfredi from the band The Preatures declared on Instagram from her front row vantage point.

The NSW label, designed by Newcastle’s Katherine Hampton, accommodates women up to a size 16.

Camp Cove wasn’t alone in the diversity on display. n swimwear labels Fella, Duskii and Pam Pam, all featured models of varying shapes and sizes.

It’s a smart business move considering the average n woman is a size 14.

Professor Tim Olds from the University of South who researches the area of anthropometry – the study of body size and shape – confirmed this figure in a study carried out a few years ago.

“About five years ago we took 3D body scans of about 1500 women, mainly in their 20s, 30s and 40s, and what we did then was to compare them to all the standard sizes and see how well do they match standard n sizes,” Professor Olds told AAP.

“They matched a 14. Fourteen is the best fit for them.”

He said the standard n code for clothing size was rarely followed.

However, the more average bodies on display in Monday’s show made for a more realistic representation considering ns were only getting bigger.

NPL: Charlestown’s injury blues mar rise to top

Charlestown have climbed back to the top of the Northern NSW NPL table but are looking for reinforcements after two potentially season-ending injuries.

Three-time league-leading scorer Kane Goodchild (hamstring) and midfielder Riley McNaughton (knee) were facing at least a few weeks out but are now battling to return at all this year.

Goodchild came off early in the round-three win over Lake Macquarie with a hamstring tear and aggravated the injury three weeks ago in training.

It was thought Goodchild would miss at least another month but Blues coach David Tanchevski said scans had revealed further damage.

McNaughton injured his knee in the 3-2 loss to Adamstown on May 6 and the initial diagnosis was a grade two medial ligament tear.However, Tanchevksi said scans had shown it to be grade three, which requires a 12-week recovery.

“Riley’s out for the season and Goody is another 10 weeks away, so he’s pretty much gone for the season as well,” Tanchevski said. “We’re not having much luck with injuries but hopefully we get Daniel Minors [torn calf]back in a few weeks.”

The loss of McNaughton and Minors has tested Charlestown’s midfield stocks and Tanchevski said they were looking for a possible injury replacement.

The Blues have the bye this weekend but host Lake Macquarie on Wednesday night at Lisle Carr Oval in round five of the FFA Cup.

On the same night, Edgeworth play Valentine at Jack McLaughlan Oval, Raymond Terrace host Adamstown, Hamilton travel to Weston, Thornton welcome Broadmeadow and Lambton Jaffas are away to Cessnock. All games start 7pm.

The winners play on June 9-11 at Speers Point for the two NNSW spots in the nationwide round of 32.

Port stick with winning AFL plan for China

Port Adelaide are hoping for more success in China by following a similar travel plan to last year.Port Adelaide are sending 26 players to China as they follow the same successful blueprint as last year for the AFL club’s Shanghai game.

The Power play Gold Coast on Saturday with Port’s squad to depart Adelaide later on Monday.

The fixture is the second in China between the clubs, after Port won the inaugural game in Shanghai last season.

“We did a pretty good job last year in terms of the preparation for it,” Port’s general manager of football Chris Davies told reporters on Monday.

“We are pretty keen to get over there and follow the method we went through last year.”

Port’s squad will include the 22 players who downed arch rivals Adelaide by five-points with a last-minute goal on Saturday.

“They have all pulled up pretty well,” Davies said of Saturday’s line-up.

“We will go across with the 22 that played and four other guys as well, so no injury concerns from the weekend which is a good outcome considering how contested the actual game.”

Port pipped the Crows with a Steven Motlop goal in the last 30 seconds delivering a fifth win from eight starts this season.

“The flight will be better than what the alternative could have been (if we lost),” Davies said.

“We had a good game on the weekend but the reality is that we haven’t been all that consistent so far this year.

“So our challenge is to make suere that we front up again in China and play a Gold Coast team who I am sure will be smarting from their loss on the weekend.”

A sell-out crowd of around 11,500 is expected at the Jiangwan Stadium, rebagded as Adelaide Arena for the fixture.

Gold Coast man jailed for killing mother

A Gold Coast man who confessed to the manslaughter of his mother nine years after she disappeared has been jailed for at least four years and nine months.
老域名购买

Daniel Paul Heazlewood was initially charged with murder over the June 2009 death of his mother Linda Sidon but last week pleaded guilty to the downgraded charge of manslaughter at Brisbane Supreme Court.

On Monday, he was sentenced to a maximum eight years behind bars for her manslaughter and a total of 11 years and six months for that and other charges, including five drug offences.

“You were the deceased’s own son. You disrespected her completely,” Judge David Boddice said in sentencing.

“That conduct involves disgraceful behaviour.”

After being arrested in 2015, Heazlewood helped police search for his mother’s body in Gold Coast bushland, but it has never been found.

Police said at the time the two-day search was hampered by the length of time since her disappearance.

Ms Sidon, a New Zealand-born part-time cleaner who had a history of anxiety, anorexia and depression, was initially thought to have taken her own life.

Her father reported her missing almost 18 months after she was last seen in June 2009.

In 2015, police were given information that heightened their suspicion she had been murdered and Heazlewood was later charged, aged 28 at the time.

With time served in custody, Heazlewood will first be eligible for parole in July 2019.

Ms Sidon’s sister Pauline said their parents died before learning of her fate.

“To know their daughter had been murdered by their grandson would have broken their hearts and souls,” she told reporters outside court.

Philosophical Cronk shrugs off criticism

Cooper Cronk has taken a subtle dig at his many knockers, arguing many of them don’t know what’s going on at the Sydney Roosters.
老域名购买

Since moving from Melbourne on a two-year marquee deal, Cronk has copped plenty of criticism during the Roosters’ hit-and-miss start to 2018.

The Tri-Colours seemingly turned a corner with their 32-0 towelling of the high-flying Warriors on the weekend, easing the pressure on the pre-season premiership favourites.

But Cronk’s contribution has been questioned as the Roosters turned in some patchy efforts over the first nine rounds.

Some asked whether he was justifying his reported $1 million-a-season salary and being scrutinised at the same level as the man he replaced, Mitchell Pearce.

But for rugby league’s most cerebral man, it’s all water off a duck’s back.

Cronk doesn’t have a problem with anyone criticising him – but he doesn’t necessarily agree with them.

“It’s fair and reasonable,” Cronk said.

“In the 24-7 news cycle we live in these days you open yourself up. I’m too old to worry about things like that but I take criticism and compliments in the same breath.

“At the end of the day those opinions, they don’t know what’s truly going on. It doesn’t inspire me.”

Asked whether the critics had a point, Cronk said: “Everyone’s opinion is valid. Is it relevant? That’s the question. Is it accurate? That’s the other question.”

Cronk’s numbers during the first 10 weeks tell an intriguing story – some are comparable to his output at the Storm while some are down.

He has come up with nine try assists, the seventh-most in the competition.

It’s the same number as St George Illawarra No.7 Ben Hunt, widely considered the competition’s form playmaker.

It’s also comparable to what he did at the Storm where he averaged between 0.9 to 1.36 try assists per game in his final five years in the Victorian capital.

On the flipside, he’s come up with just four linebreak assists – down on the 1 per game he came up with last year.

He’s been credited with zero linebreaks this year.

With Cronk at the helm, the Roosters have averaged 3.1 tries (eight in the competition), 3.5 linebreaks (12th) and 26.6 tackles inside the opposition 20 (14th).

Following their Anzac Day loss to St George Illawarra, Rooster coach Trent Robinson conceded that his side had been too structured.

Cronk said they’d adjusted to play more freewheeling football at times but all teams needed organisation to fall back on.

“The structure is still there, whether it’s the Dragons or it’s the team on the bottom, they have a structure in place that they think wins football games,” Cronk said.

“The teams that do it well, execute it better than most.”

CRONK BY THE NUMBERS

— NRL (@NRL) May 19, 2018

That gave Newcastle a 26-18 lead, but a fumble by Daniel Saifiti gifted the Titans possession and a try by winger Anthony Don, converted by Taylor, made it a two-point ball game.

Taylor then kicked a penalty goal, after a Connor Watson high tackle, to lock scores at 26-all.

The Knights conceded another penalty for offside in the 73rd minute, but Taylor’s attempt sprayed wide to the right.

A fortuitous try by rookie Titans five-eighth AJ Brimson, after Shaun Kenny-Dowall spilled a bomb, broke the deadlock.

Taylor made sure of the result with a 78th-minute field goal.

Saifiti’s twin brother, Jacob, faces an anxious wait after suffering a first-half shoulder injury.

He watched the rest of the game in a sling and scans will determine when, or if, he can play again this season.

The Titans went to half-time with a 12-8 advantage after a fluctuating first 40 minutes.

He hoisted a towering bomb in the eighth minute thatPonga, under pressure from Michael Gordon, was unable to catch cleanly.

Gold Coast prop Ryan James regathered possession and Brimson fired out a pass to winger Phillip Sami, who scored in the corner.

Gordon converted from the sideline, then made it 8-0 with a penalty goal midway through the half.

The Knights responded in the 28th minute when centre Sione Mata’utia crashed over after a Watson pass.

Halfback Brock Lamb added the extras, then equalised with a penalty goal four minutes later.

A minute before the interval, Taylor attacked a short side and offloaded to centre Dale Copley, who scored.

Three minutes after the resumption, Newcastle hit the lead when prop Herman Ese’ese, surprisingly named to start the game on the bench, strolled into a yawning gap to score.

Four minutes later, the home team were back in front after Sami scored his second try.

There was a dramatic turning point in the 52nd minute when Titans prop Jarrod Wallace was sin-binned after a professional foul.

While he was off the field, Newcastle equalised with a try by Sio and Lamb calmly converted from the sideline.

Ponga, widely touted as a genuine option for the Maroons in Origin I, then scored his runaway to give the visitors an eight-point buffer, but it was short-lived.
