January 12, 2021: To support the industry’s carbon reduction targets, Kuehne+Nagel and Air France KLM Cargo have launched the first carbon neutral air freight lane between North America and Europe. This forward-looking initiative marks another step towards the commercial deployment of alternative fuel and companies’ commitment to a sustainable future for aviation. Proactively addressing its carbon footprint, the year-round transportation of all Kuehne+Nagel cargo on board regular AFKLM flights from Los Angeles to Amsterdam will be fully fuelled by SAF. This first carbon-neutral lane underlines the strong sustainability programmes of partners, Kuehne+Nagel’s Net Zero Carbon programme and AFKLM’s cargo SAF programme, which aim to connect people and goods through sustainable logistics. Yngve Ruud, member of the management board of Kuehne+Nagel, responsible for air logistics, commented, “The first zero emission route marks the beginning of our journey into CO2 neutral air freight and is another step towards achieving complete carbon neutrality by 2030.

The revolutionary optimism of the pro-democracy movement that deposed president Zine el Abidine Ben Ali in 2011 has given way to hopelessness among the one third of young people without a job. And while Tunisia -- unlike most of its regional neighbours -- has kept the candle of a fragile democracy burning, widespread popular discontent is now driving many to leave. It was in Tunisia where the revolts started after young street vendor Mohamed Bouazizi, cheated and humiliated by local officials, set himself on fire on December 17, 2010. His desperate protest triggered a wave of popular revolts across North Africa and the Middle East, briefly raising hopes of bringing political freedom to millions. "We gave our blood to write history, and history must be written today by applying the law and publishing the list," he said.

Morocco and Israel in December signed a US-brokered normalisation agreement in Rabat. The Israeli foreign ministry has selected a diplomat to reopen the Jewish state’s liaison office in Morocco, an official said, weeks after the two countries normalised ties. Morocco and Israel in December signed a US-brokered normalisation agreement in Rabat, with bilateral deals centring on direct air links, water management, connecting financial systems and a visa waiver arrangement for diplomats. Morocco closed its liaison office in Tel Aviv in 2000, at the start of the second Palestinian intifada, or uprising.

Recent major seizures of cocaine headed to North Africa indicate that the region is becoming a hub for trafficking. Traffickers are eager to get increasing cocaine crops to major markets in Europe and the Middle East, and the shift to North Africa is likely due in part to tighter enforcement in West Africa. Libya's regional neighbors in North Africa have similarly seen a rising tide in cocaine seizures. REUTERS/Joe PenneyIncreased counter-narcotics efforts in West Africa, a traditional cocaine transit point, are likely leading cocaine traffickers to rely more heavily on maritime routes through North Africa, as soaring South American cocaine supplies are increasingly smuggled aboard shipping containers to reach both a swelling European market and a nascent Middle Eastern one. However, compared to Morocco or even Algeria, Libya is a particularly unusual cocaine transit point, especially through a direct South America-Libya connection.

Deval, and indeed France, were all too gladdened by the intransigence of Dey who refused to apologize for hitting Deval. But in the centuries after this episode, the Algerians called their protector cannon Baba Merzoug (Marzoug). The metaphor was every bit as intentional as Baba Merzoug had been a symbol in its former home. And in what has been a painful rapprochement between the two countries over the last few decades, Algeria has not sought to make topical its desire to see Baba Merzoug returned. It would seem hope among Algerians for the return of Baba Merzoug is well-founded.

This will allow 250,000 people to be immunised, as the course of Sputnik V requires two shots. Algeria isn’t the only country to rely on the Russian vaccine, as Sputnik V is already being used in immunisation campaigns in Serbia, Belarus, Argentina and Bolivia.
