Venezuela opposition calls
for two day national strike


By the A.M. Costa Rica wire services

Venezuela's opposition announced a two-day national strike this week aimed at pressuring President Nicolas Maduro to cancel a controversial July 30 election for a new congress.

"We are calling out the entire people, all groups in society, for a 48-hour strike" on Wednesday and Thursday, lawmaker Simon Calzadilla said.

Calzadilla said a protest march on Friday, following the strike, will demand that Maduro officially scrap the vote.

The president, however, remains defiant in the face of ever-increasing protests and international pressure.

"The imperial right wing believes it can give orders to Venezuela," Maduro said, referring to U.S. President Donald Trump's threat to impose economic sanctions on Caracas unless the vote is aborted.

"The only ones who give orders here are the people," Madura said during his weekend television commentary, broadcast late Saturday. "This time next week Venezuelans will be voting for a Constituent Assembly."

Protesters in Caracas marched toward the embattled nation's supreme court Saturday, chanting slogans denouncing Maduro's plan to rewrite the constitution. National Guard troops used tear gas in at least one location, blocking protesters with clouds of white gas and rows of officers on motorcycles.

A 23-year-old violinist who has become a symbol of anti-government protests in Venezuela, Wuilly Arteaga, was hit in the face and injured during clashes between protesters and security forces.

Speaking from a hospital in Caracas, Arteaga said, "No matter what, we will continue to fight." He gained fame for playing his instrument in the middle of ongoing violent clashes in the Venezuelan capital.

Violence during four months of anti-government unrest has taken more than 100 lives, injured thousands, left hundreds in jail and further damaged an economy in its fourth year of a debilitating decline.


Nine die in freighter truck
in immigrant smuggling case


By the A.M. Costa Rica wire services

Police in Texas say they found eight people dead early Sunday in the back of a sweltering tractor-trailer in a Walmart parking lot. A ninth victim died in a hospital hours later.

Surveillance footage recorded vehicles pulling up to the truck Saturday night, taking a few people at a time from the trailer, then locking the truck and driving away.

The truck's human cargo was discovered after someone from the transporter asked a Walmart employee for water. That led to a police check, and the discovery of about 30 survivors, including two school-aged children, along with those who died: all adult men. Authorities at a hospital where the survivors were taken said 20 people were in critical condition.

San Antonio's fire chief, Charles Hood, said it was likely no one would have survived another night in the trailer, after a day in which temperatures reached 38 degrees Celsius.

The trailer was a refrigerated freight carrier, but its cooling system was not working.

A 60-year-old man from Florida, said to be the truck's driver, was arrested, and authorities said he would face criminal charges in court on Monday. Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly promised a thorough investigation.

There was no word on the nationality of the immigrants aboard the truck. San Antonio is a few hours' drive from the U.S.-México border, but people from a number of Central American countries as well as México patronize people smugglers who bring in illegal immigrants.

"These smugglers have no regard for human life and seek only profits," Secretary Kelly said in a statement Sunday. He pledged that authorities in the U.S., México and Central America will root out these smugglers, bring them to justice and dismantle their networks.


Mexican cartel leader gets
30 years in U.S. prison


By the A.M. Costa Rica wire services

A U.S. judge in the state of Texas has sentenced a Mexican drug cartel leader to 30 years in prison.

The judge in Laredo, Texas, also ordered Ivan Velasquez-Caballero, a high-ranking member of the Zetas cartel in México, to pay a fine of $10 million for his drug-related crimes.

Velasquez-Caballero was arrested by Mexican authorities in 2012 and was extradited to the United States to stand trial. He agreed to plead guilty in 2014 to importing and distributing narcotics.

Velasquez-Caballero will be deported to México once he is released from prison.

Earlier Friday, Mexican officials said June had the highest homicide rate for any month in at least two decades. Officials say 2,234 people were murdered in June with the most homicides in Guerrero, a drug cartel stronghold in the south of the country, and in México, surrounding the capital's federal district.

Officials say the one-month total brings the number of homicides in México for the first half of 2017 to a record of 12,155. They say that is a 30 percent increase from the same period in 2016.


Court voids nominations
by Venezuelan assembly


By the A.M. Costa Rica wire services

Venezuela's opposition-controlled Congress appointed a new slate of judges to the Supreme Court on Friday, a move that the high court immediately voided.

The Supreme Court ruled that the National Assembly's appointment of 13 new judges and 20 substitute judges violated the constitution and was an illegal attempt to usurp authority.

The Assembly, which is dominated by the opposition, has been in conflict with the high court judges, who have consistently backed President Nicolas Maduro in the country's political stalemate. Opposition lawmakers see the president's plan to rewrite the constitution as a power grab, while the Supreme Court has supported the effort.

On Thursday, the death toll from four months of anti-government protests in Venezuela topped 100. Officials said four people were killed Thursday during demonstrations in Valencia, on the outskirts of Caracas, and in northern Zulia state.

One of the victims was a 15-year-old boy who was killed in skirmishes with police in Zuila, as opposition protesters engaged in a 24-hour nationwide strike.

Another man died during anti-government demonstrations just outside Caracas after being shot four times. Authorities said two other men died during demonstrations related to the strike.

In cities across Venezuela on Thursday, tree limbs, wires, trash and furniture were transformed into roadblocks as Venezuelans heeded the opposition call to strike against the Maduro government.

Groups of masked young men set fire to a handful of blockades and hurled stones at riot police, who fired back tear gas.

In Caracas, astride a motorcycle and wearing a black helmet, Luis Carmona said he was not going to be swayed by Maduro's overtures.

"What we have here is hunger," he said, "and they think they are going to buy us off with that little bag of food? No, sir. We are going to keep in the street every day."

The announcement of the additional deaths came after a senior Venezuelan diplomat at the United Nations said he had resigned, citing systematic persecution of civilians, state terrorism and violations of the constitution by the Maduro government.

Speaking to The Associated Press on Thursday night, Isaias Medina said Venezuela is a failed state, adding that this is a fugitive government and a complete dictatorship. Maduro does not have the right to be in that office.

Medina, an international lawyer specializing in environmental issues, who was a minister counselor at Venezuela's U.N. mission, called on Maduro to leave the office so that a new government can take place and do their job. Venezuela's U.N. ambassador said Medina was fired for acting dishonestly.

The 24-hour strike was meant as an expression of national disapproval of Maduro's plan to convene a constitutional assembly that would reshape the Venezuelan political system to consolidate the ruling party's power over the few institutions that remain outside its control. The opposition is boycotting a July 30 election to select members of the assembly.

Maduro said on national television that he'd press ahead with plans to rewrite the nation's constitution and that hundreds of Venezuela's largest companies were functioning at 100 percent despite the strike. The claim could not be immediately confirmed.

Violence during four months of anti-government unrest has injured thousands, left hundreds in jail and further damaged an economy in its fourth year of a debilitating decline.

The opposition has called on Venezuelans to take to the streets again on Saturday in a show of support for the new Supreme Court justices they are trying to appoint.


Trump son-in-law expected
on Capitol Hill for testimony


By the A.M. Costa Rica wire services

The probe into Russian meddling in the U.S. election crosses into new territory this week as congressional committees seek information from two of Donald Trump’s family members, including the president’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, who is expected to make the first of two appearances on Capitol Hill Monday.

A man often seen but rarely heard, Kushner is one of President Trump’s closest advisers, tasked with pursuing a peace deal in the Middle East and heading an effort to modernize the federal government.

In closed-door sessions, Kushner is slated to answer questions before the Senate and House intelligence committees. Both are expected to seek information about Kushner’s Russia contacts, including a December meeting with Russia’s ambassador and, last June, with a Russian attorney and other figures connected to Moscow.

That meeting has been the focus of great attention since the President’s son, Donald Trump Jr, released emails expressing eagerness for what he believed the Russian attorney would provide: harmful material about Hillary Clinton, Trump’s 2016 opponent.

Trump Jr. and campaign manager Paul Manafort also attended the meeting, and were initially scheduled to appear this week before the Senate Judiciary Committee. But that testimony has been postponed based on an understanding that the two men will provide the committee with records and information.

With the Russia probe now scrutinizing those closest to Trump, questions have arisen about any possible presidential pardons. Trump's legal team noted the Constitution grants the president broad pardoning powers, but insisted that nothing is being contemplated.

At the same time, the White House insisted the news media’s focus on the Russia probe is misguided.

“The top three issues that Americans care about are immigration, health care, and jobs,” said White House spokesperson Sarah Huckabee Sanders, also on This Week. “The top three issues that the media cares about are Russia, Russia, and Russia.”

Taliban capture two districts
in central Afghanistan

By the A.M. Costa Rica wire services

Heavy fighting is raging in central Afghanistan where officials say the Islamist Taliban has captured two key district headquarters and is assaulting government outposts in nearby areas.

Insurgents stormed Taywara district in Ghor province early Sunday, after seizing control of the border district of Kohistan in the adjoining northern province of Faryab, according to Afghan and Taliban officials.

Ghor’s governor Nasir Khazay said thousands of Taliban fighters participated in the pre-dawn attack on Taywara and faced strong resistance from Afghan forces before overrunning it.

A government spokesman in Faryab said around 700 Taliban insurgents overnight attacked Kohistan and swiftly captured key installations, including the police headquarters, before establishing control over the entire district.

Abdul Karim Youresh said that as many as 200 Afghan security forces have been cornered in a remote village in the district also known as Lawlash, and urgently need reinforcements.

Insurgents are attacking government positions in eight other districts of Faryab, according to Afghan media.

A Taliban spokesman, Zabihullah Mujahid, claimed rebels inflicted heavy casualties on government forces and killed dozens of them in the fighting for the control of the two districts.

It was not possible to independently verify the claims and Afghan officials would not discuss casualty details saying clashes were still underway in the area.

Taliban insurgents have also besieged the Khanabad district of the northern Kunduz province. Afghan officials, meanwhile, have confirmed insurgents ambushed and killed at least 35 Afghan forces in the neighboring northeastern Badakhshan province Friday.

Clashes are also raging in volatile southern Helmand province where an American drone strike mistakenly killed at least 15 Afghan security forces during Friday’s clashes in the Gereshk district.

The Taliban has intensified insurgent activities across the country as U.S. President Donald Trump’s administration is about to complete its much-awaited comprehensive review of Afghan policy.

The new policy may involve intensified U.S. military operations, including the addition of several thousand troops, to enable Afghan security forces reverse insurgent gains.

At the start of this year's fighting season, the Afghan government was in control of less than 60 percent of territory while the Taliban controlled or influenced the rest, according to U.S. military assessments.

The Trump administration is also expected to take a tougher posture towards neighboring Pakistan that Washington blames for the military stalemate in Afghanistan.

U.S. military officials maintain Taliban insurgents and their dreaded ally, the Haqqani network, are using sanctuaries on Pakistani soil to sustain the Afghan insurgency. Islamabad denies the charges.

On Friday, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis told reporters that the Pentagon has withheld 50 million dollars in military assistance to Pakistan because the country was not taking enough action to counter activities of Haqqanis.


114 Somali prisoners
released from Ethiopia


By the A.M. Costa Rica wire services

More than 100 Somalis, recently released from Ethiopian detention facilities and handed over to the Somali government, arrived in Mogadishu on Saturday, government officials said.

The 114 prisoners smiled and some of them kneeled as they got off the plane and kissed the soil. Parents and relatives waiting for them at the airport cheered and burst into tears.

Government officials told local media that the Somali prisoners had been held in Ethiopian jails for various offenses, including illegal entry.

Jamaludin Mustafa Omar, the Ethiopian ambassador to Somalia, who was with the prisoners, said the move was a sign of the good ties between the countries.

"Some of these prisoners had 20-year sentences, and their release represents the strengthening relationship between our two countries," Omar said.

The release of the Somali prisoners followed talks between Somali Prime Minister Hassan Ali Khayre and his Ethiopian counterpart, Hailemariam Desalegn, on the sidelines of the recent 29th African Union Heads of States summit in the Ethiopian capital, Addis Ababa.

Somalia's ambassador to Ethiopia, Mohamed Ali Nur, who also accompanied the prisoners, thanked Ethiopia for giving them amnesty.


Greek island of Kos hit
with aftershocks after quake


By the A.M. Costa Rica wire services

Two aftershocks hit the Greek island of Kos on Saturday night, just a day after a 6.7 magnitude earthquake killed two people and injured nearly 500 others.

The first aftershock, of 4.4 magnitude, hit the island about 8 p.m. local time and was followed 16 minutes later by a 4.6-magnitude tremor, the Athens Geodynamics Institute reported.

The fresh tremors meant more worrying for residents and tourists on the island, as hundreds chose to spend the night sleeping outside, too scared to return to their homes or hotel rooms.

Officials on the island were assessing damage to cultural monuments and infrastructure, such as the port's 14th-century castle and other older buildings affected by the quake.

The island's port was among the damaged structures, along with a minaret from an old mosque.

The port was closed and ferry services were canceled until further inspection. Passengers were rerouted to nearby islands.

Kos Mayor Giorgos Kyritsis said that most of the residential buildings affected were old, predating earthquake building codes.

One that collapsed dated to the 1930s, Kyritsis said. "There are not many old buildings left on Kos. Nearly all the structures on the island have been built under the new codes to withstand earthquakes,'' he added.

Greek authorities said the two tourists killed were from Turkey and Sweden but did not disclose their names.

At least five people were seriously injured and were flown to a hospital on the Greek island of Crete.

The earthquake was the second in the region this year to exceed a magnitude of 6.0, a level that can cause considerable damage.

Beautiful farm in excellent location
At only an hour's drive from San José, minutes from Guápiles, and boardering Braulio Carrillo National Park, Etlingera Farms is one heck of an amazing farm. We purchased this 77-acre farm 10 years ago after many trips, and an exhaustive search. It has a little bit of everything we were looking for and a whole lot of beauty.

And, a comfortable, 1-bedroom cabin where we stay. We have 2 large barns, a chicken coop, and a 3-stall pig pen. There are two tilapia ponds and 2 hectarias, (approximately 5 acres) of different species of bananas. The property boarders Rio Blanco in the rear and has 300 meters of public road frontage. Water, electricity, and telephone are all serviced by public utility. Etlingera Farms was reforested with several thousand wood trees of different tropical varieties. We truly believe this farm is spectacular. Our neighbors are selling for as much as $20 per meter. We are negotiable, motivated and open to offers.
