Libya: Ex-official kidnapped; interior minister said he resigned

first_img Share CNN News Share Share 20 Views   no discussions Tweet News Libya: Ex-official kidnapped; interior minister said he resigned by: – February 23, 2011 Sharing is caring! (CNN) — Hours after Libya’s former interior minister said he resigned to support anti-government protesters, the Libyan government said he had been kidnapped.Abdul Fattah Younis al Abidi told CNN Wednesday that he resigned Monday after hearing that 300 unarmed civilians had been killed in Benghazi, Libya’s second-largest city. He accused Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi of planning to attack civilians on a wide scale.But the same day, Libyan state media reported that “gangs” in Benghazi had kidnapped him. Witnesses have reported that Benghazi has essentially been taken over by the opposition. Witnesses also told CNN they saw Younis on Sunday and Monday in Benghazi, where he was siding with the protesters.CNN could not immediately confirm reports for areas beyond Benghazi. The Libyan government maintains tight control on communications and has not responded to repeated requests from CNN for access to the country. CNN has interviewed numerous witnesses by phone.   Libyan state television added that Libyan forces have warned those responsible for the kidnapping that they “will be chased in their hiding places.”Earlier Wednesday, al Abidi said he had quit the government and is supporting the protesters, who he predicted will achieve victory in “days or hours.”“Gadhafi told me he was planning on using airplanes against the people in Benghazi, and I told him that he will have thousands of people killed if he does that,” al Abidi said in an Arabic-language telephone interview Wednesday.He called Gadhafi “a stubborn man” who will not give up. “He will either commit suicide or he will get killed,” said al Abidi, who said he has known him since 1964.Al Abidi called on Libyan security forces “to join the people in the intifada.” Already, he said, “many members” of the security forces had defected, including those in the capital, Tripoli.Since the recent protests in Libya started February 15, a growing number of Libyan officials have reportedly resigned.Libya’s ambassador to Bangladesh, A.H. Elimam, resigned to side with pro-democracy protesters, said BSS, the official news agency of Bangladesh, citing a Foreign Ministry official Tuesday.Justice Minister Mustafa Abdul Jalil also resigned, saying he was protesting the “bloody situation” and “use of excessive force” against unarmed protesters, according to the Libyan newspaper Quryna.CNN’s Waffa Munayyer contributed to this report.last_img read more

Kindred Q1 growth hit by exceptional charges

first_img Submit Kindred Group has this morning published its Q1 2020 trading update stating that its business model has shown its ‘resilience against COVID-19’s exceptional circumstances’.The Stockholm-listed operator recorded a strong opening to 2020 trading, with group revenues ‘returning to double digit growth’ with the group reporting a 11% increase to £250m (Q12019: £224m).During Q1, Kindred detailed that all core markets were tracking above ‘positive expectations’, attributed to a strong take-up of its sportsbook products (trading with higher operating margins) up until COVID-19’s mid-March sports postponements.Kindred maintained an improved EBITDA of £32.5m (Q12019: £30m) despite reporting a number of ‘items affecting comparability’, with the group choosing to absorb specific charges related to ‘disputed regulatory sanctions’ (£8m) and ‘accelerated amortisation costs attached to acquired assets’ (£10m) during period trading.Despite reporting improved top-line results, accounting for significant exceptional charges Kindred declared Q1 2020 operating profits of £7.3m (Q12019: £15m).“As part of the previously communicated plans to review the Group’s cost base, we have recognised a charge of GBP 1.9 million in the first quarter of 2020 in connection with restructuring costs,” said Henrik Tjärnström, Kindred Group CEO.He added: “We have additionally decided to rationalise the Group’s brand portfolio and have announced the pending closure of several smaller brands. This, together with a wider review of acquired intangibles, has triggered a noncash charge of GBP 10.8 million in the first quarter.”Closing Q1 trading, Kindred’s attention has fully shifted to mitigating COVID-19 disruptions across its group operations. This March, Kindred governance sanctioned a number of cost controls and capital liquidity protections to safeguard the firm during lockdown.Tjärnström continued: “We have seen positive growth in other products and we have acted quickly to adapt our marketing and other investments and to maintain an even tighter control over all operating costs. If we see any further deterioration in the business, we will not hesitate to make further adjustments.“As a pure digital company, we are well prepared and ready to take the opportunities that will come when markets start to normalise. I am very confident that Kindred’s well-diversified and financially sound business model will enable us to emerge stronger over the coming quarters.” Share StumbleUpon Unibet backs #GoRacingGreen as lead racing charity  July 28, 2020 Mace launches EQ Connect to solve the industry’s ‘single view’ conundrum on identifying risk  August 10, 2020 Related Articles Share Kindred marks fastest route to ‘normal trading’ as it delivers H1 growth July 24, 2020last_img read more
