Man caught writing racist slurs on neighbour's property A New Zealand man living in Browns Plains, south of Brisbane, claims he has been the victim of repeat racist attacks. Hate slogans and white supremacist slogans as well as swastikas have been written- and an arrow has even been fired at his garden deck. © 9NEWS Jason Herbert said he just wants to live in peace. Mr Herbert said his family, who are originally from northern New Zealand, has been a target since they moved in to the home six years ago. "Whether it's because we're Kiwi of whether it's because some of my family are brown complexion..." he told 9 News.

Northern Irish police have released CCTV showing a masked attacker firing the shots that killed young journalist Lyra McKee: a murder that has shocked Ireland and the UK.

It has added to fears that this island’s 21 year-old, hard-won peace is under serious threat, with converging pressures from Brexit, polarised and paralysed politics, and revived anger from the Bloody Sunday killings.

McKee, 29, had written passionately and insightfully on the grief, resentment and pain that still lies under the surface in Northern Ireland.

Derry , officially Londonderry (/ˈlʌndəndɛri/), is the second-largest city in Northern Ireland and the fourth-largest city on the island of Ireland.

They then resorted to starving it out. They raised the siege and left when ships bringing food broke through to the town. in open rebellion against Tyrconnell and his master James II, who was already in exile in France at that time. On 30 May heavy guns and mortars arrived at the camp before Derry .

Police believe dissident republicans to be behind the murder, and are focusing on the “New IRA” group, who reject the Good Friday Agreement that ended The Troubles and who have been linked to other killings and carbombings including the one outside Derry’s courthouse in January.

On Friday thousands rallied in Creggan. McKee’s partner Sara Canning choked back tears and pleaded that the death “must not be in vain”.

“Our hopes and dreams, her amazing potential was snuffed out by a single barbaric act,” she said. “This cannot stand. Her legacy will live on in the light that she’s left behind.”

The pushback by politicians and the community against this murder has been quick and strong.

On Friday some Derry graffiti was repainted. A slogan on a wall had said “IRA undefeated army, unfinished revolution” but now reads “IRA are done. Defeated Army. Finished revolution.”

If there is hope it has been in the strong bipartisan condemnation of the killing.

-Better, and that He has been raised again. The burial of our Lord is dwelt upon and emphasised as the proof of the reality of His death. All true Christians believe that Jesus Christ, and him crucified, and then risen from the dead, is the sun and substance of Christianity.

The voice of local Catholic parish priest Father Joe Gormley shook with emotion on radio: “These people go into our area and use us to carry out such vile acts… how dare they? How dare they do it?”

Among the old and young on the streets of Creggan was 30 year-old Tanya, who told the Irish Times “I felt it was important to come to send a message that this was not done in our name”.

Ireland’s president said those behind the killing did not represent anybody on the island.

When I visited Derry/Londonderry a year ago, there was this same mix: passionate hope and desire for peace, with still-raw trauma and unease.

McKee herself described a societal PTSD in Northern Ireland, diagnosing a disorder that still claimed lives through depression and suicide.

In Derry/Londonderry peace has always been the most tenuous. Bombs are still found in cars and threatening graffiti mars freshly painted walls.

At the nearby border the road sign saying “Welcome to Northern Ireland” had seen “Northern” angrily spraypainted over.

Elisha McCallion, a Sinn Fein politician, told me only a “small minority” want peace gone. But she feared Brexit would be the ally of unrest, the seed to catalyse a return to war as the border inevitably became more “concrete”.

N Ireland: Woman arrested in slaying of journalist McKee

N Ireland: Woman arrested in slaying of journalist McKee The Police Service of Northern Ireland says it has arrested a woman under the Terrorism Act in connection with the slaying of journalist Lyra McKee. 

The claim is that since Finicum carried his gun on the right, then he would not have reached for his left side unless he had been shot there. Hence, while it's within the realm of possibility that he was shot where he carried his gun , his actions seem more consistent with reaching for his concealed weapon.

Robin Hood is a legendary heroic outlaw originally depicted in English folklore and subsequently featured in literature and film. According to legend, he was a highly skilled archer and swordsman.

Then there is the paralysis at Stormont, where no government or parliament has sat for two years in an entrenched political stalemate between Sinn Fein and the Democratic Unionist Party, who must and cannot share power.

There is little appetite to return to direct rule from Westminster, which would have major security and economic implications (read: widespread anger and probable violence).

But senior UK government minister Michael Gove has warned a “no-deal” Brexit would require direct rule, for decisions beyond the scope of the bureaucrats in charge.

And an unhealed wound was exposed again in March when prosecutors announced just one British soldier would face murder charges over Bloody Sunday – a police attack on a civil rights march in 1972 that wound its way through the streets of Creggan to Bogside.

Republicans have neither forgiven nor forgotten.

Many Northern Irish want McKee’s death to be a watershed moment, a setback for dissidents. They desperately hope unionists will not take it on themselves to strike back.

“Here’s to better times ahead and saying goodbye to bombs and bullets once and for all,” McKee wrote on Twitter recently.

But her last tweet was “Derry tonight. Absolute madness”.

Pink was Ms Angok’s favourite colour. Around 200 people attended a vigil at Federation Square for Ms Angok, a 33-year-old Geelong woman whose body was discovered in a Chinatown alleyway on Wednesday morning. Her aunt, Teresa Kau, said the family had to trust Ms Angok was now in a better place. “We cannot blame anyone, we just put her in the hand of God,” she said. “All we can do is live in peace ...
