Afghan forces retake control of Kunduz from Taliban: govt

KABUL, Oct 1, 2015 (BSS/AFP) - Afghan forces retook control of the northern city of Kunduz from Taliban insurgents on Thursday after fierce fighting overnight, government officials said."(Afghan) special forces now control Kunduz City, it is retaken and being cleared (of) terrorists, heavy causality to the enemy," interior ministry spokesman Sediq Sediqqi said on Twitter.Deputy Interior Minister Ayoub Salangi said the city had been recaptured after a "special operation" overnight.

Afghan forces were seen in the centre of the city and the streets were littered with Taliban bodies, a Kunduz resident told AFP, adding that fighting was still ongoing in parts of the city.The Taliban's three-day occupation of Kunduz, which sent thousands of panicked residents fleeing, dealt a major blow to the Afghan military and highlighted the insurgency's potential to expand beyond its rural strongholds.Security officials said the militants had slowly infiltrated Kunduz during the recent Eid festival, launching a Trojan horse attack that enabled them to capture it within hours.The fall of the city raised troubling questions about the capabilities of Afghan forces as they battle the militants largely on their own after NATO's combat mission ended last December. ..More...

China, Sri Lanka launch FTA talks
BEIJING, Sept. 18 (Xinhua) -- China and Sri Lanka have begun negotiating a deal that would see favorable policies for trade between the countries, the Ministry of Commerce (MOC) told Xinhua late yesterday.
Chinese Commerce Minister Gao Hucheng and Sri Lankan Economic Development Minister Basil Rajapaksa have signed a memorandum on the launch of the Free Trade Agreement (FTA) negotiations in Colombo, marking the official launch of the talks, said the MOC, without saying when the document was signed.
In the memorandum, the two sides have confirmed that the FTA would cover trade of goods and services, investment and economic and technological cooperation.
The negotiations were launched more than a year after a feasibility study was started in Beijing.

China-Sri Lanka trade volume has kept growing in recent years, and China has become Sri Lanka's second-largest trade partner and source of import. In 2013, trade between the two countries amounted to 3.62 billion U.S. dollars, up 14.3 percent year on year.

The news came a day after Chinese President Xi Jinping, during his visit to Sri Lanka, called on the two countries to accelerate their FTA negotiations..More...

FARIDPUR, Nov 26 (FNS) - Rafael Benitez has vowed to win over the Chelsea supporters who are so opposed to his arrival at Stamford Bridge that they booed his name before and during his first game in charge.

Sunday's 0-0 draw at home to Premier League champions Manchester City left the Champions League holders in fourth place, a point behind West Bromwich Albion.

The Spaniard made an extraordinary claim that he had not heard the abuse that was directed at him in protest at his appointment to succeed Roberto Di Matteo, who was fired despite
leading the club to Champions League glory in May.
The supporters also sang Di Matteo's praises throughout.
"My experience in England is that when the fans are singing in the stands, I don't understand what they say," said the former Liverpool manager, whose comments about Chelsea during his time at Anfield are the root of the enmity.
"So I was just concentrating. I can understand because of the rivalry in the past.More...
