WASHINGTON (AFP) – US military prosecutors have filed formal charges against an Indonesian Islamic extremist and two others in the 2002 Bali bombings and 2003 Jakarta attack, the Pentagon said Thursday (Jan 21). The charges were filed nearly 18 years after the three were captured in Thailand and after each has spent more than 14 years in the US military prison in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. The first charged was Indonesian militant Riduan Isamuddin, better known by his nom de guerre Hambali, the leader of the Indonesian jihadist group Jemaah Islamiyah and believed to have been Al-Qaeda’s top representative in the region. The group, with support from Al-Qaeda, carried out bombings of tourist nightclubs on Bali on October 12, 2002 that killed 202, and the August 5, 2003 attack on the JW Marriott hotel in Jakarta that left 12 dead and scores injured. The other two charged, Malaysian nationals Mohammed Nazir Lep and Mohammed Farik Amin, were top Hambali aides in Jemaah Islamiyah who had undergone training by Al-Qaeda, according to Guantanamo case documents. “The charges include conspiracy, murder, attempted murder, intentionally causing serious bodily injury, terrorism, attacking civilians, attacking civilian objects, destruction of property, and

Biden unveils virus plan but says 100,000 may die in next month President Joe Biden unveiled a national strategy to combat the coronavirus while issuing a sobering warning: The pandemic is likely to claim another 100,000 lives over roughly the next month and will worsen before it improves. “We’ll move Heaven and Earth to get more people vaccinated for free,” Biden said on Thursday at the White House. But he warned: “The brutal truth is it’s going to take months before we can get the majority of Americans vaccinated.” Biden announced a series of executive actions aimed at overhauling the federal response to the coronavirus outbreak, which has already claimed more than 400,000 lives in the US.

France already requires masks to be worn in public places, but until now has not made recommendations about the type of masks. French authorities are worried they could
SVP and Director at IBM Research Arvind Krishna speaks on stage during the 2016 Wired Business Conference in New York on June 16, 2016. Brian Ach | Getty Images IBM shares moved 7% lower in extended trading on Wednesday after the company reported fourth-quarter revenue that fell short of analysts’ expectations. Here’s how IBM performed: Earnings: $2.07 per share, adjusted, vs. $1.79 per share as expected by analysts, according to Refinitiv. Revenue: $20.37 billion, vs. $20.67 billion as expected by analysts, according to Refinitiv. Revenue fell 6% on an annualized basis, the fourth consecutive quarter of declines, according to a statement. Revenue had not fallen so sharply in five years. The company has sought to go bigger in cloud computing and artificial intelligence under new CEO Arvind Krishna, but revenue declines also rankled his predecessor, Ginni Rometty. IBM’s Cloud and Cognitive Software segment that includes Red Hat produced $6.84 billion in revenue, down about 5% year over year. That’s lower than the FactSet consensus estimate of $7.18 billion. The Global Technology Services unit came up with $6.57 billion in revenue, which was down 6% and below the
WASHINGTON (REUTERS) – US President Joe Biden issued an executive order on Thursday (Jan 21) that vows to require international air travellers to quarantine upon US arrival and directed US agencies to quickly implement a federal mask mandate in interstate transportation. Biden’s order says “to the extent feasible” air travellers must comply with applicable CDC guidelines concerning international travel “including recommended periods of self-quarantine,” but does not explain how it will be enforced. The order also directs US agencies to hold talks with Canada and Mexico “regarding public health protocols for land ports of entry” including implementing CDC guidelines. Nearly all non-essential travel at US land borders with Canada and Mexico is suspended through Feb 21. Related Stories:
Andrew Dudum joins a growing number of entrepreneurs who are going public via SPAC. (Courtesy of Hims)Hims closed its $1.6 billion SPAC deal with Oaktree and began trading as a public company Thursday. While the health startup is focused on the US, CEO Andrew Dudum tells Insider about a secret trip he took to Asia just before the pandemic hit. “That will be a market that we look at,” Dudum tells Insider. Visit Business Insider’s homepage for more stories. Digital-health startup Hims just went public in a $1.6 billion SPAC deal with Oaktree, opening at $17.16 on the New York Stock Exchange on Thursday. The successful exit values the three-year old company at just over $3 billion and puts about $205 million in cash into its coffers, giving founder and CEO Andrew Dudum a lot of options to expand the fast-growing, but still unprofitable business. While the company is mostly focused on the US, where it counts over 280,000 subscribed customers, Dudum tells Insider about a secret trip he took to Asia in November 2019, right before the global pandemic. Hims is most well-known for providing online consultation and shipping prescriptions for issues ranging from erectile dysfunction to hair
Bob Swan, then-interim chief executive officer and chief financial officer of Intel Corp., reacts during the inauguration of the company’s research and development facility in Bengaluru, India, on November 15, 2018. Samyukta Lakshmi | Bloomberg | Getty Images Intel stock rose more than 6% on Thursday as the chipmaker reported earnings and revenue that exceeded investor expectations and its own forecast on Thursday, driven by strong PC sales. Details of Intel’s earnings became available on financial wires minutes before the markets closed on Thursday. The strong earnings report covering the quarter ending in last December comes a critical moment for the chip giant as Thursday’s report is the last with Bob Swan in the CEO role. On February 15, Pat Gelsinger takes over. Here’s how Intel did: Earnings per share (EPS): $1.52, adjusted, vs $1.10 expected by Refinitiv consensus estimates. Revenue: $20 billion, vs $17.49 billion expected by Refinitiv consensus estimates. Forecast: Q1 2020 revenue of $18.6 billion and EPS of $1.03. Intel also increased its cash dividend by 5% to $1.39 per share. Intel said strength in PC sales helped it exceed its own expectations. It
BRUSSELS • The World Health Organisation (WHO) plans to approve several Covid-19 vaccines from Western and Chinese manufacturers in the coming weeks and months, a document published on Wednesday shows, as it aims for rapid roll-outs in poorer countries. Covax, a global scheme co-led by the WHO, wants to deliver at least two billion vaccine doses across the world this year, with at least 1.3 billion going to poorer countries. But it has so far struggled to secure enough shots due to a shortage of funds, while wealthy nations have booked large volumes of vaccines for themselves. In the race to deploy shots, regulatory approvals are key to confirming the effectiveness and safety of vaccines, and boosting output. But some poorer countries rely mostly on WHO authorisations as they have limited regulatory capacity. The WHO is, therefore, expediting emergency approvals, according to a Covax internal document seen by Reuters. The Covid-19 vaccine developed by AstraZeneca and manufactured by the Serum Institute of India (SII) could be authorised by this month or next month, the document said. The same vaccine produced in South Korea by SK Bioscience could be approved by
