    1. Xmas typhoon kills 6 in Philippines

    A powerful typhoon blew out of the northern Philippines on Monday after killing at least six people and spoiling Christmas in several provinces, where more than 380,000 people abandoned celebrations at home to reach emergency shelters and other safer grounds.

    Typhoon Nock-Ten cut power to five entire provinces due to toppled* electric posts and trees, dimming Christmas revelries* in Asia’s largest Catholic nation. More than 300 flights were delayed or rescheduled and ferries were barred from sailing, stranding 12,000 travelers.

    2. S. Korea mobilizes army for poultry cull

    South Korea on Monday mobilized* armed forces to play an active part in its biggest-ever poultry cull* as the spread of a highly contagious strain of bird flu continued, ordering that another 1.6 million birds be destroyed in affected areas within 24 hours.

    The latest cull, announced in a statement by the Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs, brings the total number of birds to be destroyed to 26 million in an outbreak first confirmed on November 18.

    Quarantine* and sanitary* restrictions were implemented after the initial cases but the flu has spread.

    3. Russian jet crashes with 92 on board

    A Russian military plane crashed on Sunday in the Black Sea as it made its way to Syria with 92 people on board, including more than 60 Red Army Choir members heading to celebrate the New Year with troops.

    Local news agencies, citing the defense ministry, said the Tu-154 plane had crashed shortly after takeoff at 5:40 a.m. local time from the southern city of Adler where it had been refueling.

    Defense ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov said one body had been recovered 6 kilometers off the coast of the resort city of Sochi, as a frantic search operation continued to hunt for the missing.

    4. Pact to limit US base worker immunity

    Japan and the United States have agreed in principle on guidelines for limiting immunity from Japanese prosecution* for civilian workers at American military bases, following a murder case this year on a southern Japanese island involving a Marine-turned-contractor, officials said on Monday.

    Since July, the governments have been negotiating several points concerning U.S. civilian contractors at American bases who are subject to protection under the countries’ Status of Forces Agreement.

    5. Tunisia arrests 3 linked to Berlin suspect

    Tunisia arrested the nephew of the suspected Berlin truck attacker and two other jihadist* suspects who are “connected” to the Tunisian assailant* Anis Amri, the interior ministry said on Saturday.

    A statement said the three suspects, aged between 18 and 27, were arrested on Friday and were members of a “terrorist cell ... connected to the terrorist Anis Amri.”

    It made no direct link between the suspects and the deadly attack on a Berlin Christmas market on December 19. The interior ministry said that Amri had sent money to his nephew and encouraged him to pledge allegiance to the Islamic State group.

    6. 31 killed in Mexico market blast

    Teams of forensic* investigators pored over the charred* remains of a fireworks market outside Mexico City on December 21 after a series of blasts a day earlier killed at least 31 people and injured dozens more in a disaster marked by disbelief and tears.

    Videos of the blasts at the San Pablito market showed a spectacular flurry* of pyrotechnics* exploding high into the sky, like rockets in a war zone, as a massive plume of charcoal*-gray smoke billowed out from the site.

    It was the third time in just over a decade that explosions struck the marketplace in Tultepec, home to the country’s best-known fireworks shopping center.(SD-Agencies)
