NATO scrambled fighter jets including two Canadian F-18s twice in two days to intercept Russian military aircraft over the Baltic Sea, it said Tuesday amid reports that Russian military activity in the region is increasing.

Lieutenant-Colonel Robert Gericke said the Russian aircraft were flying in international airspace and had not violated the territory of alliance members.

Two Canadian F-18 Hornet jets were scrambled from the Siauliai Air Base in Lithuania on Monday to intercept a Russian Ilyushin-20 surveillance aircraft, which they shadowed for some 15 minutes, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization said.

Once identification was successful, the intercept mission was completed and the two Hornets returned to their base, a NATO statement said.

Earlier, the Latvian military tweeted that NATO F-16 jets were dispatched on Tuesday to intercept a Russian Ilyushin-20 surveillance aircraft over the Baltic Sea. Gericke confirmed that NATO jets had also intercepted a Russian aircraft that day, but could not immediately provide more details.

NATO, which has 16 fighter jets in the region monitoring Baltic airspace, said it regularly launches jets to identify unknown or potentially hostile aircraft in the proximity of national airspace.

There were two similar incidents in the region on Oct. 7 and Sept. 11, but on neither occasion did the Russian aircraft constitute a threat to NATO forces, the alliance said.

In the past five days, the Swedish Navy has been combing the Stockholm archipelago for signs of a foreign submarine that officials suspect entered its territorial waters illegally. It hasnt officially linked Russia to the suspected intrusion.

The Finnish military says that Russian military aircraft have violated the small Nordic countrys airspace five times this year, and the Environment Institute said Russian military ships had twice intercepted one of its research vessels in international waters.

On Sept. 5 an Estonian security service officer was detained on the Russian border Estonia and Russia disagree on which side of it and is still in custody in Moscow.

Hurricane Ana was on course to miss Hawaii Saturday, generating strong winds and heavy rains throughout the islands. (AP)

October 18


Hurricane Ana center will miss islands

Hurricane Ana was on course Saturday to miss Hawaii by more than a hundred miles but was generating high waves, strong winds and heavy rains that prompted flash-flood warnings throughout the islands.

The center of the powerful Pacific storm was about 190 miles west of the Big Island and about 150 miles southwest of Honolulu, the National Weather Service said. A tropical storm watch remained in effect on Oahu and Kauai but was lifted for Maui, Lanai and the Big Island.

A downpour on the Big Island prompted officials to close Mamalahoa Highway in a region known for its coffee farms. Its the only road connecting some communities to the eastern side of the island. On Oahu, rain was falling on the islands North Shore and Koolau Mountains, said Bob Burke, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service. Waves were expected to crest to 10 to 15 feet on the south shores of the islands and remain high through Sunday.

The heaviest rains were falling along the southeast slopes of Mauna Loa, in the Puna district and the Kau district on the southeast side of the island. However, no one on the Big Island reported storm damage, said Darryl Oliveira, director of Hawaii County civil defense.

Ana became a Category 1 hurricane Friday when it was about 230 miles south of Hilo. The hurricane was expected to gradually weaken and again become a tropical storm by Sunday afternoon, Burke said.

The American Red Cross closed its evacuation shelters on the Big Island and opened shelters on Oahu. Island Air suspended its Maui and Lanai flights Saturday afternoon and all flights Sunday, but airports remained open.

The metropolitan area has been lashed by a sudden storm, with lightning, hail and rain sweeping across several suburbs.

Cottesloe and North Cottesloe beaches were closed earlier this afternoon and Scarborough and Trigg followed as the weather loomed just off the coast.

A Surf Life Saving WA spokesman said beaches were closed when lightning was within 10km of the shore.

Large hail fell in several suburbs in a reminder of the 2010 storm that caught the city by surprise.


The storm is associated with the convergence of two weather systems.

The Weather Bureau extended a severe weather warning to the Perth metropolitan area.

Weather Bureau duty forecaster Pete Clegg said pressure systems to the west and east were joining up to create unpredictable weather conditions.

Were expecting heavy rainfall leading to flash flooding with damaging winds and light hail possible for anywhere south of Gingin and north of Mandurah, he said.

All North Shore beaches, from the Hanalei Pavilion to Kee Beach, are closed to swimming Friday due to high surf conditions. Ocean Safety officials report wave heights of up to 25 feet in these areas.

Lifeguards will remain at the beach towers throughout the day to notify beachgoers of the closure.

All beaches will reopen as officials deem them safe for swimming.

The National Weather Service has posted a High Surf Advisory along all north and west facing shores on Kauai and Niihau until 6 a.m. Saturday. The warning may be extended or modified as conditions develop.

HAVANA — Former Cuban President Fidel Castro has jumped to the defense of Russia, comparing the new NATO chief to the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) in an article penned Monday evening.

Reacting to statements made Sunday by the new NATO secretary-general, former Norwegian Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg, Castro wrote: “How much hate in the face! What an incredible determination to promote a war of extermination against the Russian Federation!”

Stoltenberg spoke in Poland saying the Western alliance could deploy its forces wherever it wants. His statements were generally seen as a reaction to Russia’s recent behavior in Crimea and Ukraine and as intended to reassure Poland, a NATO member, that it would be protected in the event of any Russian moves against it.

New North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg of Norway speaks at his first press conference at the NATO headquarters in Brussels on October 1, 2014.


Castro, however, described the NATO chief’s remarks as fanaticism comparable to that of ISIS.

“Who turns out to be more extremist than the very fanatics of the Islamic State?” he wrote in the article published by the Cuban media Tuesday. “What religion do they practice? After this, is it possible to enjoy eternal life on the right side of the Lord?”

Although a NATO summit a month ago turned down appeals from Eastern European NATO members to station thousands of troops there permanently, Stoltenberg, who as Castro points out became NATO chief just six days ago, appeared to take a harder line in Poland.
