  • US agents plotted to find bin Laden via meds: report

    The United States plotted to find Osama bin Laden by concealing tracking devices in medical supplies, possibly through Red Cross hospitals, a report said Thursday, citing documents leaked by former security contractor Edward Snowden. The Intercept news site quoted from a National Security Agency slide presentation dated June 2010 which discussed the possibility of going from "Pharma to Target" by penetrating "the non-electronic moat" that protected bin Laden from surveillance in his Pakistan hideout. Titled "Medical Pattern of Life: Targeting High Value Individual #1," the presentation cites CIA reports on the Al-Qaeda chief's poor health and invokes a scenario in which spy agencies target the "supply chain" of likely medicine and equipment destined for bin Laden.

Hotovely, 36, is among a generation of young hard-liners in Netanyahu's Likud Party who support West Bank settlement construction and oppose ceding captured land to the Palestinians.

  • Qatar still failing labourers on reform, says Amnesty
