Pakistan Army destroys Taliban Broadcast Tower along Afghanistan border

It has been reported that Pakistan Army has destroyed a Taliban's broadcast tower along Pakistan-Afghanistan border. The broadcast tower was being used to spread anti Pakistan propaganda from Afghan soil.

It may be noted that the Taliban have erected many towers inside Afghanistan that have been used to blast into Pakistan Taliban related propaganda and creating disloyalty among people living in Pakistani territory. 

Taliban have since long been indulged in such activities and in 2009 Pakistan closed down all mobile data signal towers and asked the Afghans to do the same. However, the Afghans have never reciprocated in the same letter and spirit as it suits them to spew venomous anti Pakistan propaganda.

Polish Climbers set off for first winter ascent of K2

A group of Polish mountaineers have set off to attempt a possible first ever winter assent of K2, the savage Mountain, at 8,611 meters (28,251 feet) above mean sea level.

While K2 is known for its atrocious weather around it and the difficulty to climb, all successful attempts have been made during the summers mostly in month of July. K2 was first climbed by two Italians on 31 July 1954. More than 70 people have perished in attempting to stand atop the second highest mountain after Mt. Everest. 

The Polish team includes 13 mountaineers led by Krzysztof Wielicki, who in 2003 headed a winter expedition of K2 that was unable to clear the 8,000 meter threshold.

Wielicki told Reuters that his team would begin their ascent on Jan. 8 or 9 and, if successful, expect to return to base camp by mid-March.

US insulted at UNSC with a 14-1 Vote against it on Jerusalem

It was a bad day for US today when an Egyptian sponsored move to pressure US to take back its decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital and shifting of its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

Except for the US, which ultimately vetoed the resolution, all other 14 members denounced US for its unilateral decision on status of Jerusalem despite clear UN stance on its future through a dialogue between Israel and Palestine.

However, the US representative at the UN Security Council was unmoved by the rebuke and in fact called it at an insult to the US for telling it where it should site its embassy.

My friends the winds from the north will freeze Britain tonight

You may have heard Demis Rousseau's My friends the wind will come from the north. But that was just a song - now here come the true winds from the north that may plunge the temperatures to -10C tonight for Britons.

Meteorologists warn of widespread frost and snowfall on its way with temperatures plummeting in London by this evening - even lower than the -8C forecast in Lapland and OC in St Petersburg.

However, for the relief of most Britons, the -10C temperature is an exceptional figure and is likely only over packed snow in the mountains. It will be less cold in the glens and further south in England and Wales
