Pakistani plane crashes with 159 on board

A passenger jet carrying 159 people crashed into the hills surrounding Pakistan’s capital (Islamabad) amid rain and caught fire Wednesday, officials said. At least 25 people were killed and five survived with injuries, but many more were feared dead in the smoking wreck.

The cause of the Airblue crash was not immediately clear, said Pervez George, a civil aviation official. He said the plane had left the southern city of Karachi at 7:45 a.m. for a two-hour scheduled flight to Islamabad and was trying to land during difficult, cloudy weather. Airblue is a private service based in Karachi, Pakistan’s largest city.

“The plane was about to land at the Islamabad airport when it lost contact with the control tower, and later we learned that the plane had crashed,” George said, adding that the model of the plane was Airbus 321 and the flight number was ED202.

Rescue workers have recovered at least 25 bodies from the wreckage, said Ramzan Sajid, spokesman for the Capital Development Authority, which reports to the Interior Ministry and has a group that deals with emergencies.

Federal Interior Minister Rehman Malik said at least five wounded passengers were rescued.

Local TV footage showed twisted metal wreckage hanging from trees and scattered across the ground on a bed of broken branches. People were climbing the heavily forested hills to search for the dead and wounded, while a helicopter hovered above. Fire was visible and smoke rose from the scene. The army said it was sending special troops to aid the search.

At the Islamabad airport, hundreds of friends and relatives of those on board the flight swarmed ticket counters desperately seeking information. A large cluster of people also surrounded the list of passengers on the flight, which was posted near the Airblue ticket counter.

“We don’t know who survived, who died, who is injured,” said Zulfikar Ghazi, who was waiting to receive four relatives. “We are in shock, but no one is here to console us, to help us. How are we going to receive their bodies? If they are injured, where are they?”

Pakistan secretly helping Afghan Taliban; wiki leaks report, Pak rejected report

Pakistan was actively collaborating with the Taliban in Afghanistan while accepting US aid, leaked US military reports showed, a disclosure likely to increase pressure on Washington’s embattled ally.
Under the heading “Afghan War Diary”, the revelations released by online organisation WikiLeaks emerged as Admiral Mike Mullen, chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff, warned of greater NATO casualties in Afghanistan.
The documents were provided first to The New York Times, Britain’s The Guardian newspaper and German weekly Der Spiegel.
Contained in more than 90,000 classified documents, the disclosures could fuel growing doubts in Congress about US President Barack Obama’s war strategy at a time when the US death toll is soaring.
Civilian killings: The leaked US military records posted online on Sunday include unreported incidents of Afghan civilian killings and efforts on some occasions to cover them up, as well as covert operations against Taliban figures. The founder of WikiLeaks, a whistle-blowing website, said on Monday that the documents contained evidence of possible war crimes that should be urgently investigated.
ISI: The leaked reports, covering a period from January 2004 to December 2009, suggest that current and former officials from the Inter-Services Intelligence have met directly with the Taliban in secret strategy sessions to organise terrorist networks fighting US soldiers.
The Guardian said more than 180 intelligence files accuse the ISI of supplying, arming and training the insurgency since at least 2004. One of the reports even implicates the ISI in a plot to assassinate Afghan President Hamid Karzai, attacks on NATO warplanes, a plot to poison the beer supply of Western troops and the 2008 Indian embassy bombing, said the newspaper.
Iran: They also carry allegations that Iran is providing money and arms to Taliban and detail how widespread corruption is hampering a war now in its ninth year.
WikiLeaks said the leaked documents “do not generally cover top-secret operations”. The site also reported that it had “delayed the release of some 15,000 reports” as part of what it called “a harm minimisation process demanded by our source”, but said it may release the other documents after further review. agencies

Meanwhile, Pakistan on Monday rejected what it called “unsubstantiated information” posted by WikiLeaks website alleging that Pakistani intelligence services were backing Afghan militants and termed them “baseless”.

Foreign Office spokesman Abdul Basit said the reports were not based on facts. He said Pakistan’s role in the settlement of Afghan issue and its efforts for peace and stability there could not be denied. Pakistani envoy Hussain Haqqani said the documents “do not reflect the current on-ground realities”.

The US, Afghanistan and Pakistan are “jointly endeavouring to defeat al Qaeda and its Taliban allies militarily and politically”, he said.

Beautiful New Theme for Your Blogger Blog

Would you like to give your Blogger blog a fresh coat of paint with a new theme?  Here’s how you can use the new Template Designer to make your Blogger site stand out from the crowd and look great.

Although it’s not mentioned online as much as newer blogging platforms such as WordPress.com and Tumblr, Blogger is still a very popular blogging platform since it’s free, easy to use, and integrated with Google apps.  However, Blogger’s themes often looked rather dated, and and it was difficult or impossible to get a truly professional or even modern look in Blogger.

Now, however, that has changed.  Blogger has been recently revamped with a new Template Designer.  This lets you quickly select from several nice, modern layouts, and even customize them with color palettes and stock photographs and artwork.  Let’s look at how you can customize your blog and create a unique style quickly and easily in the new Blogger Template Designer.

Getting Started

When you login to your Blogger Dashboard, you may see a new popup showing off the new Template Designer.  Click the Try it now button to get started.

Otherwise, select the Design tab in your Dashboard, and then click the new Template Designer link.

This will open a brand new template page that shows the new theme options on the top, and your existing blog design at the bottom.  Let’s do something about that old design.

First, from the Template tab, select a new Theme set, and then choose one of the available variations underneath.  If you don’t see one you like, click the right arrow to reveal more themes.  Currently there are 6 theme sets, but each one offers several variations.

Once you select a theme, you’ll immediately see the changes on your blog preview on the bottom of the page.  It’s looking better already.  If you like the default theme style, you can go ahead and save your changes, or you can continue on and change the colors and background if you like.

Select the second tab on the top left to change the background and color scheme.

Click the Background image button to select from a wide variety of nice, free backgrounds from iStockPhoto.  Select a category on the left, and then click the picture you want to use to apply it to your blog.  You’ll see the changes immediately in your blog preview; if you like it, click Done, or go back and pick another if you’d like.

Back on the Background tab, you can select a premade color palate, or click the top button to choose a different base color. Note that Blogger will automatically switch your color scheme to match the background you picked, but you can still customize it if you like.

Now, you can change your blog’s layout to customize it even more.  Click the Layout tab on the top left, and select a new layout.  Notice that your blog preview on the bottom of the page will change to the old Blogger designer view, and you can drag and drop elements to the place you like as before.

Finally, if you’d like to customize fonts and colors on your Blog template, select theAdvanced tab and then select the part of your blog you’d like to customize.

You can even add custom CSS to your theme from the Add CSS tab.  You can see the changes immediately in the blog preview underneath, which is a great way to make sure you’re changing it the way you like.  This lets you really customize your theme as you like.

Once you’re done tweaking your new theme, click Apply To Blog in the top right corner.

Now, open your blog in a new tab.  If you like your new theme, then you’re all set; otherwise, go back and tweak some more until you’re content.

Conclusion

Blogger has seemed like one of the least feature-full blog platforms for awhile, but with the new Template Designer, your Blogger blog looks great even beside more modern blogging platforms.  If you’re starting a new blog, you might want to try out several platforms to see which one you like best.  Now you can be sure to have a great theme, even if your site is running on Blogger.  Let’s get all the old Blogger blogs updated with the new themes!
