Video Stream-Libya war, Islamist Coup in Indonesia ? Malaysian Hindus approach Hague Court

Libya update

4 Four days into an international military operation that has crippled Muammar Gaddafi’s air force and air defence and forced the retreat of his ground troops in the east, rebels still can’t seem to break through to Ajdabiya.

Al Jazeera’s James Bays filed this report nine kilometres outside the town, where the AJE team had earlier come under missile fire from Gaddafi’s forces

The Road to Hell

NYT-
United States military officials said that there were fewer American and coalition airstrikes in Libya on Sunday night and Monday, and that the number would probably decline further in coming days. But Gen. Carter F. Ham, the head of the United States Africa Command, who is in charge of the coalition effort, said that there would be strikes on Colonel Qaddafi’s mobile air defenses and that some 80 sorties — only half by the United States — were flown on Monday.

General Ham also said he had “full authority” to attack the regime’s forces if they refused to comply with President Obama’s demands that they pull back from Ajdabiya, Misurata and Zawiya.

By Monday night, explosions and antiaircraft fire could be heard in and around Tripoli in the third straight day of attacks.

Who leads the allied Offensive ?

Earlier in the day, General Ham repeatedly said in answer to questions from reporters that the United States was not working with the rebels. “Our mission is not to support any opposition forces,” General Ham said by video feed to the Pentagon from the headquarters of Africa Command in Stuttgart, Germany

Prime Minister David Cameron of Britain said responsibility for the no-fly zone would be transferred to NATO. But France objected to that, with its foreign minister, Alain Juppé, saying: “The Arab League does not wish the operation to be entirely placed under NATO responsibility. It isn’t NATO which has taken the initiative up to now.”

Thousands gather at the Aztec “Pyramid of the Sun” in Teotihuacan, Mexico to celebrate the spring equinox. Many believe it’s a chance to take in positive energy from the cosmos.

At the break of dawn, thousands gathered at the Aztec “Pyramid of the Sun” in Teotihuacan, Mexico, raising their hands to greet the sun during spring equinox celebrations on Sunday.

The spring equinox occurs in the middle of March, marking the beginning of spring for the northern hemisphere.

Thousands of participants began the ascent of the Sun Pyramid at the Teotihuacan ruins to receive energy from the Sun and the rest of the cosmos.

[Margarita Castillo, Pyramid Ritual Participant]:
“It is said that during the equinox, the cosmos projects all of its energy and it is recommended that humans receive all of that positive energy.”

Participants of the event wear traditional white clothing and also join in with group dances.

Some bring amulets and crystals to enhance their experience with the sun.

The ruins were named Teotihuacan by the Aztecs, who inhabited the area 700 years after the ancient city had been abandoned, around 600 AD.

The name means “The Place Where Men Become Gods.”

Experts believe the Sun Pyramid was a fertility symbol built around 80 AD.

They say the pyramid is shaped like a mountain to counteract the evil influence of two nearby volcanoes that were violently erupting at the time the pyramid was built.

An Islamist plot gets unwrapped by an excellent investigative reporting by Al Jazeera at Jakarta.

Behind the incessant assaults against Indonesia’s minorities, especially the Hindu communities in Bali, al Jazeera senses a sinister bid by Islamist radicals to unseat the country’s head.
