Receive email alerts RSF_en Filed jointly with the journalist concerned, freelance photographer Ameer Al Halbi, on 7 December, the complaint accuses Lallement and an unidentified police officer of responsibility for an act of deliberate violence by a person holding public authority during the “March for Freedoms” protesting against the controversial “global security” bill in Paris.A freelancer for various media outlets including the magazine Polka and Agence France-Presse, Al Halbi was covering a police charge against protesters when a policeman hit him with a baton, fracturing his nose and left eyebrow.He was stationed at the foot of a wall with other journalists at the time, and was clearly identifiable as a press photographer. Although he lost consciousness and although his face was covered in blood, he was not taken to hospital for two hours because the police were blocking all access roads. He is still being treated by doctors, who have told him he cannot work for the time being.“The assault on Ameer Al Halbi constitutes a violent attack on the right to inform,” RSF secretary-general Christophe Deloire said. “As it is the prefect of the Paris police who issues law enforcement instructions, he is directly responsible for this failure to protect journalists. This is why we are lodging a complaint against him.”RSF already filed a complaint against person unknown and against the prefect on 27 November in connection with police violence against three journalists during the forcible evacuation of a migrant tent camp on Place de la République, in central Paris, on 23 November. In December 2019, RSF filed a joint complaint with 13 journalists who were the victims of police violence while covering “gilets jaunes” (yellow vest) protests.France is ranked 34th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2020 World Press Freedom Index.

UK: HMS Montrose Successfully Fires Harpoon Missile

first_imgRoyal Navy warship HMS Montrose has flexed her warfighting muscle with the successful firing of a Harpoon missile – capable of destroying a target up to 80 miles away. The anti-ship missile was fired at more than 800 mph into a specially-designed target barge in the Scottish exercise areas, obliterating it within minutes, and demonstrating the type of lethal power the warship wields.The Royal Navy continually tests its personnel on exercises and training serials which are designed to build a world-class Service, and putting the weapons through their paces is part of ensuring their powerful capability. Principal Warfare Officer Lieutenant Ben Evans said:“The intensity and stress of conducting complex warfare training increases tenfold when you know that there is almost a quarter of a tonne of warhead on the end of the live missile you are about to fire – but so is the satisfaction increased when you successfully achieve your goal.” HMS Montrose, which is based at Devonport Naval Base, fired the Harpoon missile during a specialist training week following her participation in Exercise Joint Warrior – a huge multinational exercise off the coast of Scotland.Weapon Engineer Officer Lieutenant Commander Tony Marden said:“Firing our cutting edge missiles is not an everyday event, but ensuring the availability of the equipment required to do so is, and my team of professional engineers take great pride in having proved their mettle.” The missile is around 15ft long, about 1ft diameter and is launched from Type 23 frigates. A booster rocket helps launch the Harpoon before the turbojet then powers it along at Mach .9 – just under the speed of sound.One of the aims of the firing was to put into practice some of HMS Montrose’s pre-deployment training, while the other was to assess the missile’s performance in challenging conditions against a challenging target.Commanding Officer of HMS Montrose, Commander James Parkin, said:“Of all the times I have said ‘command approved’ in my career so far, it was this one that I enjoyed the most.“A successful firing of our Harpoon missiles has proven that my professional team of highly trained sailors are at the top of their game, and that we are ready for any tasking that we are given.” [mappress]Press Release, May 7, 2013; Image: Royal Navy View post tag: Montrose Back to overview,Home naval-today UK: HMS Montrose Successfully Fires Harpoon Missile Training & Education View post tag: Missile May 7, 2013 View post tag: Defense View post tag: successfully View post tag: News by topic View post tag: Navy View post tag: Naval View post tag: HMS View post tag: Fires View post tag: Defence View post tag: HARPOON UK: HMS Montrose Successfully Fires Harpoon Missile Share this articlelast_img read more
