Bali airport reopened shortly after Volcanic Aviation
« on: November 25, 2018, 09:32:58 pm »
DENPASAR Cheap Gustav Nyquist Shirt , Indonesia, Dec. 1 (Xinhua) -- As volcanic activities of Mount Agung have yet to recede with the alert remaining the highest, the airport in Indonesia's Bali island took cautious approaches to secure stranded tourists to get home after it reopened on Wednesday afternoon.


Intensive coordination was applied by Indonesia's related agencies to secure flights serving in the island, according to a spokesman of the airport administrator.


At I Gusti Ngurah Rai International Airport, Arie Ahsanurrohim told Xinhua that the airport was still in recovery and another closure could take place in the near future should volcanic ash affect the airport.


"As of today and tomorrow Cheap Justin Abdelkader Shirt , operations at the airport were still in recovery. Intensive coordination between officials of related institutions was underway through messaging apps groups so as to quicken the decision making," Arie said.


"We have predicted that the condition in the next day would be improving. Volcanic ashes are going away from the airport," he said


The Bali airport reopened shortly after Volcanic Aviation Alert was lowered from a red alert to orange as wind blew away ash and billowing black smoke spewed out by Mount Agung.


As operations at the Bali airport resumed, it is ready to accommodate flights from other closed airports affected by the Mount Agung volcanic activities, he said.


According to Arie Cheap Nick Jensen Shirt , Bali international airport authorities have issued new approvals for 26 flights to fly since its reopening, mostly serving flights to and from China.


He added that 24 planes stranded in the airport since Monday have also departed shortly after the airport reopening.


To serve passengers stranded in Bali, the airport provided spaces for officials from consulates of various countries to help their nationalities.


"This is to ease those who already suffered from the dire situation," Arie said, adding that more than 118 Cheap Dylan Larkin Shirt ,000 passengers were affected by cancellation of flights since Monday's closure.


Indonesian President Joko Widodo has also called for government agencies to intensify coordination in providing assistances for stranded tourists, including visa extensions for those whose visas expired during the airport closure period.


Arie said that the airport also continues providing buses for tourists planning to continue their trips via land transport to several cities outside Bali.


Authorities in Bali's Karangasem regency that hosts the volcano had imposed emergency response status within two weeks from Nov. 27 to Dec. 10.


Over 43,300 people have been evacuated to more than 229 shelters in 22 villages in several regencies.


Mount Agung volcano took more than 1,500 lives in its most devastating eruption in 1963.

NAIVASHA, Kenya Cheap Frans Nielsen Shirt , Dec. 5 (Xinhua) -- The decision by the International Criminal Court (ICC)'s Chief Prosecutor Fatou Bensouda on Friday to drop charges against Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta has been received with mixed reactions in Kenya.


Residents in Naivasha, which was one of the epicenter of the post election violence and home to Internally Displaced Person (IDPs), welcomed it with pomp, songs and dance in various camps around the lakeside town.


However, victims of the Naivasha violence expressed their anger and disappointment after years of waiting for justice.


Over 50 people were killed in Naivasha and hundreds of others displaced during the violence that hit the town on January 27 Cheap Mike Green Shirt , 2008.


According to Rosemary Muthoni from an IDP camp in Gilgil, the move was long overdue as Kenyatta was never involved in the violence.


Muthoni, who was evicted from Kericho at the height of the violence, said the real perpetrators of the violence were never arrested.


"We are shedding tears of joy after the charges against the president were dropped and we hope that one day the real perpetrators will be arrested," she said.


Bensouda withdrew the charges against Kenyatta for crimes against humanity during the 2007-2008 post poll violence on Friday.


She said she did not have enough evidence to take him to trial. "The evidence has not improved to such an extent that Kenyatta's alleged criminal responsibility can be proven beyond reasonable doubt Cheap Gordie Howe Shirt ," Bensouda added.


"For this reason, and in light of the Trial Chamber's rejection of the Prosecution's request for an adjournment until the government of Kenya complies with its cooperation obligations under the Rome Statute, the Prosecution withdraws its charges," she said.


The decision was made in light of a resolve by ICC judges on Wednesday, rejecting Bensouda's request for a further adjournment on the case.


Trial judges had also given the prosecutor one week to decide whether she would proceed with the case or withdraw the charges.


"The evidence has not improved to such an extent that Kenyatta's alleged criminal responsibility can be proven beyond reasonable doubt Cheap Jonathan Ericsson Jersey ," she added.


At various IDP camps in Mai Mahiu and Gilgil in northwest of Nairobi, it was tears of joy as the victims of the violence danced and went on their knees for prayers.


Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto, whose trial with that of radio journalist Joshua Sang has been ongoing, were accused of bearing the greatest responsibility in the 2008 post election violence where more than 1,300 people were killed and some 600 Cheap Darren Helm Jersey ,00 others displaced.


The benefits of full cooperation with the ICC, as exemplified by the non-issuance of the arrest warrants against the three Kenyan suspects, have also attested to the Court's commitment to the rule of law, contrary to the widely shared belief about its prosecutor.


Kenyatta, whose government unwittingly landed before the Court by playing to the whims of interested politicians Cheap Martin Frk Jersey , has been mounting a political battle against the ICC, going al.
