#AceWorldNews – JAPAN:Jan.27: The Islamic State has released a video with a threat to kill a second Japanese hostage and a Jordanian pilot in the next 24 hours if the Japanese authorities fail to persuade Jordan to release failed suicide bomber Sajida al-Rishawi from prison RT, Twitter and Youtube reported.
The video uploaded on the web by the jihadist group is comprised of an audio message by Japanese hostage, Kenji Goto, and a picture of Goto, dressed in an orange jumpsuit, holding a portrait of a Jordanian military pilot, Muadh al-Kasasbeh.
“I’ve been told this is my last message,” Goto said as he began his address, adding that his life now depends on the government of Jordan, which is “delaying the handover of Sajida.”
The hostage urges the Japanese authorities to put political pressure on Jordan to accelerate the release of the female terrorist.
“Her for me. A straight exchange. Any more delays for the Jordanian government will mean they’re responsible for the death of the pilot, which will then be followed by mine,” he said in the video.
Following the video’s release, Japan said it would renew its request for Jordan to help it secure Goto’s immediate release by Islamic State.
“The Japanese government in this extremely severe situation has asked for collaboration from the Jordanian government to help secure the release of Kenji Goto swiftly. There’s no change to this stance,” Yoshihide Suga, Japan’s chief cabinet secretary, was cited as saying by Reuters.
#AceWorldNews – Update:France:Jan.17: City officials in Reims say one of the terrorists responsible for deadly attacks last week that killed 17 people was buried in the eastern French city over their objections and despite concerns that the grave could become a shrine for extremists AP reported.
Said Kouachi, the elder of the two brothers who together gunned down 12 people Jan. 7 in their attack on the satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo, was buried at the demand of the French government, Reims city officials said in a statement Saturday.
#AceWorldNews – WASHINGTON (AP) – The Supreme Court is getting back in the marriage business and in what will become a landmark decision, for or against. The justices agreed Friday to decide a major civil rights question: whether same-sex couples have a right to marry everywhere in America under the Constitution.
The court will take up gay-rights cases that ask it to overturn bans in four states and declare for the entire nation that people can marry the partners of their choice, regardless of gender. The cases will be argued in April, and a decision is expected by late June.
The court chose not to decide this issue in 2013, even as it struck down part of a federal anti-gay marriage law that paved the way for a wave of lower court rulings across the country in favour of same-sex marriage rights.
#AceWorldNews – Update: PAKISTAN: Jan.17:The nineteenth sectarian militant has been executed in Pakistan, as the country continues to deal out justice in the aftermath of the tragic school massacre last month, after lifting a moratorium on death penalties.
The Saturday hanging comes after first being cancelled, but with court later rejecting a pardon offered by the victim’s family, according to officials RT News reported.
Afghan security services also arrested another five men in connection with the massacre at a Pakistan military school last month that killed 150 people, most of them children, officials said Saturday.
The men, all foreigners, helped support the Dec. 16 assault by the Taliban at the Army Public School and College in the city of Peshawar, the three Afghan officials told The Associated Press.
They said the men were arrested in recent weeks near Afghanistan’s eastern border with Pakistan.
