Iraq: Falluja civilians report cases of starvation 26.5.2016 DNA: Wide Angle
Civilians who managed to flee besieged Falluja have reported cases of starvation in the Iraqi city that government forces are trying to recapture from Islamic State militants, the Norwegian Refugee Council said on Thursday. "If they stay in Falluja they face possible starvation, if they try to escape they risk being killed getting out," NRC media coordinator Becky Bakr Abdulla said in an emailed report, citing fresh refugee accounts. The Iraqi army launched an offensive on Monday to dislodge the ultra-hardline Sunni militants from Falluja, situated 50 km (32 miles) west of Baghdad. Falluja was the first Iraqi city to fall under IS control, in January 2014, and has been under a tight siege for about six months. The NRC, which assists refugees at a camp south of Falluja, said the fighting made it difficult to assess the full extent of "the dire situation in the city". One woman told the NRC her family had lived on dry dates and drank from the Euphrates River before escaping Falluja. About 50,000 are ...

Italian mayor breaks with PM's party over lack of help for migrants 26.5.2016 DNA: Popular News
A mayor and other officials in a Riviera town have suspended their membership of Italy's ruling party in protest at what they view as government neglect of scores of refugees living rough there. Prime Minister Matteo Renzi has called repeatedly for more help from the European Union to process the refugees who arrive daily from North Africa by boat. Almost 38,000 have reached Italy so far this year, according to the interior ministry. Meanwhile councillors from Renzi's Democratic Party (PD) in Ventimiglia, a stone's throw from France, are frustrated at the lack of a regional or national response to requests for help with some 200 refugees who are camped out under a bridge. "These people are living like animals and we cannot accept that," said local PD head Domenico Casile, adding he along with Mayor Enrico Ioculano and some other councillors had suspended their party membership. "The PD is in government with lots of ministers... and these people have kept quiet." Casile said a migrant identification ...

At least 30 dead in shipwreck off Libya: EU naval force 26.5.2016 DNA: Top News
Up to 30 people are feared dead after a shipwreck off Libya, while some 50 migrants have been rescued from the waves, the EU's naval force said on Thursday. "We estimate the dead to be between 20 and 30 people," captain Antonello de Renzis Sonnino, spokesman for the EU's Sophia military operation to combat people smugglers in the Mediterranean, told AFP. "A Luxembourg reconnaissance plane spotted a capsized boat around 35 nautical miles off the Libyan coast with about 100 migrants in the water or clinging to the sinking vessel," he said. The Spanish frigate Reina Sofia and Italian coast guard raced to the scene and threw life-floats and jackets to those in the water. "Unfortunately there were bodies too," de Renzis Sonnino said, adding that the rescue operation was still ongoing. In photographs released by EUNAVFOR MED on Twitter, migrants could be seen waving their arms for help as they balance perilously on the deck of the boat, already underwater but clearly visible in the limpid aquamarine sea.

Alejandro Aravena's Venice ​architecture ​​biennale: 'We can’t forget beauty in our battles' 26.5.2016 The Guardian -- Front Page

The Chilean architect pitches activism against starchitecture and uncovers the architect’s role in drone warefare – leaving Richard Rogers and Renzo Piano distinctly out of place

“The only animal that can defeat the rhinoceros is the mosquito,” says Alejandro Aravena, the Chilean architect curating this year’s Venice architecture biennale. “Or a cloud of mosquitos, actually.”

He is standing in the former rope factory that serves as the exhibition’s main venue, a 300-metre-long promenade of installations, where robotically milled stone vaults compete with teetering bamboo frames, made by dozens architects from far-flung corners of the world. These are Aravena’s mosquitoes.
