Another nothing week for GKP. Politics are calming down and it seems everyone now wants to arm the Kurds with the gucciest equipment. Nothing like some state of the art weaponry to help cement your borders and allow a little force projection. I took up a position in Afren today, a first for me in at just over a pound. Still some risk but I'd be happy to trade it if the sp recovers into the mid teens. With this one still in a coma it's been fun buying and selling on a number of shares on day trades or slightly longer. Production figures plus payment update vital on 28th and SA needs to flow. No more bad news please GKP you've been bloody awful for months (if not years)
A Yezidi woman carrying her baby reaches the Kurdistan Region after being rescued on Mount Shingal. DUHOK, Kurdistan Region—Militants of the Islamic State (IS/ISIS) raided the Yezidi village of Kucho, killing 80 men and taking a number of women and children hostage after a deadline to convert to Islam expired on Friday, villagers said.
According to Rudaw sources, the IS gave the residents of Kucho a deadline to convert to Islam or face consequences. The deadline expired today.
Kucho is located 80 kilometers southeast of Shingal where thousands of Yezidis fled and took refuge on a nearby mountain as the town fell to the IS earlier this month.
Local Yezidi sources said that a large force of IS militants arriving on buses attacked the village, rounded up 1,200 people and hauled them into the school village.
The spokesman for the Yezidi Spiritual Community, Karim Suleiman confirmed the the massacre by the IS, saying, “One of the men in the village escaped the IS injured.”
Scores of Yezidi villagers were killed during the initial IS attack on their region earlier this month and hundreds more, mostly women and young girls are still missing.
The women are believed to have been held in Mosul, Iraq’s IS stronghold.
The United Nations, US, EU and human rights organizations have strongly condemned the violent IS attacks on the Yezidi religious minority.
Very nice prices to have had buys at - not in AFR as was worried it might visit the mid-70s before bouncing but fully expect it to recover (although depends on what the directors have done in terms of sentiment when that all comes out in the open - could easily be nothing much but the company can't say publicly at the moment, just hope it doesn't have anything to do with a certain big find last year that a small AIM oil company got a chance to farm into before the oil strike...). Tempted to add more here and in GENL but am away fishing a fair bit for most of the next two months in places with no internet or even phone signal so being a bit cautious, plus have a fair bit tied up in offshore UK ones presently.
