Iran seizes cargo ship in Strait of Hormuz, Iranian media says

Iran’s Revolutionary Guards seized an Israeli-linked cargo ship in the Strait of Hormuz on Saturday, the Iranian state-run IRNA news agency reported, days after Tehran warned it could close the area to sea traffic. IRNA reported that a Guards helicopter had boarded and taken into Iranian waters the Portuguese flagged MSC Aries. Shipping security agencies had earlier reported a vessel being boarded and seized by “regional authorities” in the Hormuz Strait between the United Arab Emirates and Iran. The Aries is leased by international shipping line MSC from Gortal Shipping, an affiliate of Zodiac Maritime, Zodiac said in a statement, adding that MSC is responsible for all vessel activities. Zodiac is partly owned by Israeli businessman Eyal Ofer. The incident comes amid rising regional tensions since the start of Israel’s campaign in Gaza in October, with Israel and its ally the United States clashing repeatedly with Iranian-aligned groups in Lebanon, Syria, Iraq and Yemen. Iran has threatened to retaliate for suspected Israeli airstrikes on its consulate in Syria’s capital Damascus on April 1 that killed seven Revolutionary Guards officers including two senior commanders. U.S. President Joe Biden said on Friday he expected Iran to attack Israel “sooner, rather than later” and warned Tehran not to proceed. Israel’s military spokesperson, Rear Admiral Daniel Hagari, said “Iran will bear consequences for choosing to escalate this situation any further”, in response to reports of the seizure of MSC Aries. On Tuesday the naval head of the Revolutionary Guards, Alireza Tangsiri, said it could close the Strait of Hormuz if deemed necessary. He said Iran viewed as a threat Israel’s presence in the UAE, with which Israel established diplomatic relations in 2020 as part of the “Abraham Accords” mediated by the United States. Yemen’s Iran-backed Houthi group has disrupted global trade with attacks on shipping in the Red Sea for months, saying it is aiming at vessels linked to Israel in retaliation for Israel’s campaign in Gaza. The United States and Britain have carried out strikes against Houthi targets in response to the attacks on shipping. The Joint Maritime Information Center, run by a Western-led naval coalition, said vessels intending to navigate the Strait of Hormuz, one of the world’s most important energy routes, should exercise caution and not loiter.

Denis Bradley book recalls pivotal moments in peace process

The conversation is recalled in detail in ‘Peace Comes Dropping Slow: My Life in the Troubles’, Mr. Bradley’s new memoir that offers an insider account of the peace process. “He was saying, ‘We’ll become the peacemakers if the Brits aren’t prepared to. We’ll become the peacemakers because it is necessary’,” Mr. Bradley told the ‘Journal’. “I think that was a change of policy. That was a long way from the ‘cutting edge of the IRA’. That was him saying, ‘We have to make peace here but we’ll make it on decent terms’. There were mistakes made after that but to be very fair he held it together. It wasn’t easy.” Mr. Bradley was part of an influential ‘backchannel’ between the IRA and the British that was first initiated in the 1970s. ‘Peace Comes Dropping Slow’ describes how the ‘backchannel’ facilitated negotiations in Brendan Duddy’s house during the 1975 IRA ceasefire but remained largely dormant until the late 1980s and early 1990s. By that stage Mr. Bradley had not been involved for several years. He was ‘disillusioned with the British’ and the lack of progress. “I hadn’t really lost contact with McGuinness at the stage and one day we were sitting chatting and he said, ‘I think we have to become peacemakers’. That drove me back into the ‘backchannel’ again. “If that was where McGuinness’ mind was and I believed he could deliver it. He was very influential within the broad movement. I knew he was being very sincere.” The book recalls an episode in 1993 when Mr. Bradley arrived at Mr. McGuinness’ mother’s house in the Bogside with senior MI5 officer Robert McLarnon, a.k.a. ‘Fred’ sitting in the car outside. The ‘backchannel’ had been in danger of collapse and Brendan Duddy suggested Mr. Bradley take ‘Fred’ to talk to Mr. McGuinness directly. “That night was a night that stood out. I suppose the person that really made me think about it was McGuinness. One time we were at a wedding and he said ‘do you remember that night?’ It nearly didn’t happen but it happened and we took it from there,” he reflects. The book describes details of the ‘backchannel’ being leaked to the Press in November 1993. It was, Mr. Bradley says, the first time he really saw Mr. McGuinness under pressure. “I don’t know who put it out but it was out and that wasn’t particularly easy. But I had always a very strong feeling. I used to say to him ‘look, if you go there they will follow you’ and he used to say to me ‘you are good crack lad’. In other words, ‘it is easy for you to say that’.” I did have high regard for him at that level.” For more on Mr. Bradley’s new memoir turn to Pages 8 and 9. Denis Bradley confesses to having wanted Brexit ‘Leavers’ to win for ‘impure motives’

Mart report: Monday calf and bullock sale at Carnaross

Carnaross Mart in Co. Meath hosted its weekly calf and bullock sale on Monday, April 8, with over 800 calves and 550 bullocks on offer. Speaking to Agriland after the sale, mart manager Padraig McElroy said that the trade in the bullock ring has held exceptionally well considering the weather conditions with the trade for lighter, plainer-type cattle back slightly but most other types of cattle holding well. He also noted that there remains high clearances and noticeably high farmer demand for calves in the calf sale also. Calf sale There were over 820 calves on offer at the Monday sale with virtually a full clearance. The quality of calves on offer in the sale were of a noticeably good quality, with plenty of slightly older, stronger calves present in the sale. The mart manager said the average weight of the calves in the sale “is probably somewhere from 65-70kg, with a clear preference from customers for the heavier calves”. Sample prices from the calf sale: Commenting on some of the prices, he said: “There were two Angus heifers weighing 105kg that made €420/head. Most farmers are focusing on the weight and the visual appearance of the calves, but some farmers are also looking at the Commercial Beef Value (CBV) of the calves they are buying.” He said that exporters were active in the sale with a noticeably high number of Northern customers for the calves on offer. Over 200 calves were purchased by customers from Northern Ireland at the Monday sale. He said: “There seems to be a lot less Friesian bull calves around this year and more coloured calves. The quality seems much better this year which is making things easier for everyone.” “Farmer customers are buying a lot of calves it seems. There are a lot of new, younger farmers buying calves, they’re the lowest money cattle available at the end of the day.” The mart manager expects the numbers of calves on offer in the weekly sales will gradually begin to decline over the coming weeks. Bullock sale There were a total of 550 bullocks on offer in the sale, with a 95% clearance rate and the trade described as “holding well considering the weather”. Commenting on some of the top prices from the sale, he said: “There was a 700kg Charolais bullock that sold for €2,300 or just under €3.30kg. Sample prices from the bullock sale: “In general, the heavy cattle are all clearing the €3.00/kg mark. There was a number of lighter bullocks in the sale and these made as high as €3.90/kg for the good ones, with four Charolais bullocks with an average weight of 310kg selling for €1,200 head.” “The 500-550kg good store bullocks are a great trade. There was 550kg cattle making €1,910 and 600kg cattle making up to €2,070 so despite the wet weather, the trade for good stores is holding but plainer cattle are back slightly. “Friesian store bullocks are making around the €2.20-2.30/kg mark,” he added. The mart manager described northern activity in the bullock ring as “just steady” with “a lot of farmers driving on the trade presently”.

An Indian author listens to literary ghosts in Paris as the French edition of her book is released

In the alleys of Montparnasse, my footsteps traced the legacy of dreams sculpted under its twinkling stars. Each cobblestone whispered a different secret, each corner turned, unveiled a new act in the drama of creation. La Rotonde wasn’t just a café; it was a proscenium where the past performed its most enchanting scenes. Starving artists could occupy a table all evening for a few centimes. If they fell asleep, the waiters were instructed not to wake them. Arguments were common, some fueled by intellect, others by alcohol, and if there were fights (and there often were) the police were never summoned. If you could not pay your bill, La Rotonde’s proprietor would often accept a drawing. I wandered into this tableau, not as an observer but as a character newly written into its lore. My breath mingled with Simone de Beauvoir’s in the cool Parisian air. The ghosts of yore – those maestros of color, word, and thought – convened in a spectral celebration of Girls Bazaar, the French reincarnation of my tale, I Kick and I Fly. I found myself seated at a table that felt like a crossroads of epochs. The air was thick with the scent of oil paint and worn leather, mingled with the faint aroma of tobacco and the echoes of debates, laughter, creation, and dissent. And then, they spoke – not with words, but with the force of their collective will, their message clear and resounding. Marc Chagall hovered slightly above, a smile playing on his lips: “Tell me, what inspired you to paint Heera’s journey in such vivid hues?” Jean-Paul Sartre asked: “How do you perceive freedom through Heera’s eyes?” Simone de Beauvoir smiled softly, her eyes alight with the fire of intellectual fervour and answered for both of us. “A narrative not just of emancipation from the physical chains but a philosophical awakening. You’ve woven a tale not just of survival but of existential triumph.” Ernest Hemingway raised an ethereal glass in salute. “Heera’s story, it resonates with the raw truth of existence. What’s her greatest strength, in your eyes?” The conversation shifted as Dorothy Parker leaned in, her voice sharp yet not without warmth. “Does your heroine find the strength to laugh in the face of despair?” Leon Trotsky leaned forward, his intensity not dimmed by the passage of time or the ethereal form he now occupied. “Revolution is not just a change of government; it’s a transformation of the very soul of society. Heera’s fight against the chains that bind her – does it not mirror the broader struggle for justice and equality?” Vladimir Lenin chimed in, his voice firm, carrying the echoes of a thousand speeches. “Your narrative highlights that individual liberation cannot be divorced from the collective struggle for freedom.” Then, from a corner shrouded in whispers of avant-garde wisdom, Gertrude Stein offered her unique perspective, her words a tapestry of rhythmic complexity. “A story is a story is a story, yet not all stories tell the tale of fighting back, of carving a niche in the world’s vast canvas. Heera’s tale – how does it transcend, transcende and transcend?” As the conversation ebbed and flowed around the table, a figure approached, suffused with the same ethereal quality that marked all the inhabitants of this timeless café. Victor Libion, the storied proprietor addressed me, “In this haven of thought and expression, we’ve always known that the currency of creativity far outweighs that of mere francs. My walls, adorned with the art of those who could not pay, bear testimony to the richness that poverty can disguise. Tell me, does your Heera find wealth in her spirit, in defiance of her material lacks?” I was touched by the inclusivity of his query, recognising the parallel in Heera’s story. “Indeed, she does. Much like the artists who found refuge in your café, Heera discovers her true value not in wealth but in her resolve, her creativity, and her unyielding spirit. It’s a wealth that transcends material boundaries, enriching all who come into contact with it.” Victor Libion nodded, a smile of deep understanding and shared secrets lighting up his features. “Ah, then she truly belongs to the spirit of Montparnasse. Just as we’ve always welcomed those who dared to dream, to create, regardless of their worldly possessions, so too does Heera embody the essence of what we hold dear – resilience, creativity, and the courage to redefine one’s destiny.” And now, as Girls Bazaar finds its voice among the echoes of Montparnasse, I ponder, where do we, the heirs of such rich legacies, migrate to find our canvas of humanity and freedom? The answer, perhaps, lies not in the geography of our wanderings but in the courage to continually seek, to question, and to redefine the boundaries of our creative and moral landscapes. Marc Chagall once said: “I aspired to see with my own eyes what I had heard of from so far away: this revolution of the eye, this rotation of colours, which spontaneously and astutely merge with one another in a flow of conceived lines. That could not be seen in my town. The sun of Art then shone only on Paris.” In Montparnasse’s embrace, I a daughter of Kolkata, find the courage to dream of new Montparnasses, new realms of freedom and creativity, where the next generation of artists, thinkers, and fighters for justice, like Heera, can forge their destinies, unbound by the confines of the past, yet deeply rooted in its lessonsMontparnasse, with its ghosts and legends, serves as the very fabric of our collective narrative. Ruchira Gupta is the author I Kick and Fly, published by Rock the Boat in 2023.

Porsche-driving Long Island squatters evicted by sheriff’s deputies who changed locks, removed their belongings

A pair of accused Porsche-driving squatters who allegedly duped a judge to get legal rights to a home they didn’t own were evicted this week when Nassau County sheriff’s changed the locks and removed their belongings — including a big screen TV and their luxe ride. Deputies knocked on the door of the Brussel Drive home in New Hyde Park around 8:30 a.m. Friday, escorting Denton Gayle and Margaret Grover out and watching as they loaded a moving truck. The couple, who also share a toddler son, put their dog Daisy in the Porsche as they emptied the two-story Cape Cod, which had been in foreclosure for a decade and abandoned for years after members of the family that owned it died. Gayle and Grover turned up at the dilapidated home last year, said irate neighbors who claimed the couple harassed them. They were arrested in October after a 911 caller, concerned for the couple’s child, reported squalid conditions. A Town of North Hempstead building inspector’s report deemed the structure, which had no heat, electricity, hot water or working bathrooms, “unlivable.” Gayle, 29, and Grover, 19, then went to Nassau Housing Court, and claimed to Judge Christopher Coschignano they had signed a rent-to-own agreement in July with the owner, Edward Iacono — even offering a lease with Iacono’s “signature.” Coschignano ordered they be allowed to return. But Iacono had died in 2016. And his son, Edward Iacono Jr., died in 2018. Furious neighbors went to court, submitting death certificates to Coschignano and asking for the order to be vacated. Last month, Coschignano agreed after Gayle and Grover failed to offer proof of their claims. They also sought to be made “heirs” to the property, records show. A lawyer for the couple, who appealed Coschignano’s decision, insisted to The Post earlier this month that they are not squatters, and that they believe they signed a valid lease in July with a man they thought was Edward Iacono. A message regarding the eviction was not immediately returned. “Our residents deserve to live in a safe and peaceful community and the troubling issues at 39 Brussel prevented that,” said North Hempstead Town Councilwoman Christine Liu, who visited the home Friday morning as the eviction was underway. “Myself and my colleagues at the Town of North Hempstead were happy to assist the residents [to] finally resolve this matter. We thank the Sheriff’s Office for executing the eviction today.” Additional reporting by JC Rice

Sharon Osbourne launches scathing attack after Amanda Holden’s ‘bitter’ swipe

Sharon Osbourne has launched a scathing attack on Amanda Holden, branding the Britain’s Got Talent judge ‘bitter and pathetic’. The fiery exchange came after Amanda criticised Sharon and Louis Walsh, former X Factor judges, for their comments about Simon Cowell during their recent appearance on Celebrity Big Brother. Amanda took issue with the pair’s mockery of Simon’s appearance and their suggestion that he would “need more Botox” after they finished sharing gossip about him. Sharon went as far as to say she wouldn’t work with Simon again for “all the money in the world”, while Louis claimed Simon makes everything “about him.” Amanda, who continues to work with Simon on Britain’s Got Talent, was quick to defend her colleague, as reports The Mirror. She said: “I hated seeing certain people in a reality show dissing Simon – he’s the person who’s given them all the chances, given them a lot of money and a lifestyle they probably wouldn’t have had.” This didn’t sit well with 71-year old-Sharon, who is married to Black Sabbath legend Ozzy Osbourne. In response, she gave Amanda a “proper education” about who she is, asserting that it was Simon who needed her and jokingly added that the money she made from doing his shows “went on a few handbags”. Sharon, believed to be part of a family empire worth £341 million with Ozzy, took to social media to directly address Amanda, stating: “I respect the fact that you feel the need to defend your good friend Simon Cowell, who is also your husband’s employer, or so I’ve read. However, a couple of your statements regarding myself are factually incorrect.” She went on to assert her own credentials: “The truth is, you don’t know me, Amanda, or any of my close friends. You know nothing about my history in the music industry, my achievements, the artists I’ve worked with, the shows I’ve produced, and my global celebrity. Unlike you, the brand of Sharon Osbourne is known worldwide. There are many countries that I could work in if I choose to, however, I don’t have the ambition or the time to do so.” Continuing her pointed remarks, Sharon added: “Our worlds are totally different. I have been blessed with an amazing lifestyle throughout my entire life. Before you were born, I was living in a mansion in Beverly Hills, and continue to do so today and continue to have my country estate in England as well. But there is something you should know. I never discuss money, lifestyle, or positions of power. I find it to be classless and crude.” “However, you’ve now forced my hand to divulge these things to you and I honestly don’t want to seem like I’m bragging, but the truth is my money and success were not due to doing a couple of Simon Cowell shows. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed doing them at the time as they were great fun. Yes, Simon paid me very well. Probably more than what you’re receiving today, but all of that my darling went on a few handbags.” The former talent show judge continued, highlighting her unique credentials during her tenure on X Factor: “I was the only judge who had global accomplishments, with multi-million selling artists, Grammy Award winners and arena and stadium headliners”, not to mention her role as “a very successful festival producer with Ozzfest which ran for 24 years, as well as a best-selling author and producer of the hit show ‘The Osbournes’, for which I received an Emmy Award.” Sharon Osbourne then directed another sharp comment towards Amanda, stating: “Amanda, I think you’re missing the point here. No disrespect to Simon Cowell, but he NEEDED ME for musical credibility on X Factor and I delivered for him and together we made a great team. It was only after several seasons of X Factor that Simon started to build his music empire and I give him much kudos for what he built.” “When I met my husband I was already very well established in the music industry. Having worked with bands like Electric Light Orchestra, Motorhead, Smashing Pumpkins, Gary Moore, The Move, Roy Woods Wizzard, Britt Ekland and Black Sabbath to name a few. I think you must have forgotten my husband is a music icon who has sold 170 million albums, won multiple Grammy Awards and is a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Inductee. We have been together 44 years and he has spoiled me from the first day we met, he has given me more than any man ever could, all of this before I ever knew who Simon Cowell was.” In a stern message to Amanda, Sharon concluded her statement with: “I must say whenever I have seen you on TV I always thought you were very beautiful and talented. However, never make comments about my lifestyle given to me by Simon Cowell. It’s demeaning to me and my husband and all the achievements I have made in my life as you’re making yourself look like an ill informed sycophantic. Sincerely, Sharon Osbourne.” The Mirror has reached out to Amanda’s representatives for comment. Get the latest celebrity gossip and telly news sent straight to your inbox.
