It turns out that the recent Electra toolkit designed for iOS 11.1.2 might be able to be used to jailbreak iOS 11.2.2 in the near future.

jailbreak iOS 11.2.2

Electra iOS Jailbreak

CoolStar, the developer behind Electra, has recently tweeted that those who are looking to fully unlock their devices should avoid upgrading to the latest operating system update.

“Since it isn’t obvious to some people: If you’re on 11.0.x or 11.1.x, obviously stay there because Electra works and there’s nothing available for 11.2.x+ yet.”

However, he also broke the news that the Electra toolkit should be able to jailbreak iOS 11.2.2 in the future – we’re just waiting on the key exploit in order to fully unlock the system.

With Ian Beer’s recent discovery of an exploit for 11.1, the jailbreak community advanced rapidly and released a number of utilities – taking advantage of this new ability to jailbreak the modern iOS operating system. There’s bound to be a way that developers can unlock the new iPhone after the update, but in order to jailbreak iOS 11.2.2 we’ll need a discovery in the same vein as Ian Beer’s contribution.

Until we have a new exploit that can compromise the upgrade and allow us to jailbreak iOS 11.2.2, our best bet is to avoid installing the newest update from Apple. However, CoolStar also suggested that those who have already upgraded to 11.2.2 or plan to upgrade to the upcoming iOS 11.2.5 should wait patiently for a developer to jailbreak iOS 11.2.2, and confirmed that the majority of the patches used in the Electra jailbreak are ready and waiting for a new exploit to come along. It’s safe to say that as soon as the flaw in the new operating system is found, an Electra jailbreak for the newest update will soon follow.

The Quest To Jailbreak iOS 11.2.2

The use of the word “yet” in the tweet above does suggest that he’s currently working on an update to support the new system, but as far as we know there hasn’t been that key breakthrough that allows enterprising developers to develop a way to jailbreak iOS 11.2.2.

Whether or not there’s actually a jailbreak for the latest operating system in development remains to be seen, but until that point it’s probably in your best interest to stay on your current jailbroken update. If you haven’t yet downloaded a jailbreak, CoolStar’s Electra is available to download now to fully unlock your device – provided you’re running an operating system between iOS 11 and iOS 11.1.2.

Given Apple’s increased security and the lower amount of people working on iPhone and iPad jailbreaks due to lower demand in general, it will likely be at least a little while before we see an exploit that allows us to jailbreak iOS 11.2.2. Until that point, however, Electra provides a fully-featured option to unlock your phone as long as you’re running the correct update. For those of us who have already made the jump to 11.2, it’s a matter of waiting.

Abbott’s four-for dismantles Heat for third-lowest BBL total

When one team is playing for a finals berth, and one team is playing for pride, there shouldn’t be a contest. But the Brisbane Heat put a huge dent in their own playoffs hopes, after they were bowled out for 73 in the 17th over, the third-lowest BBL score, while a Sydney Sixers side with no hope of finals action ran the target down in 10 overs.

With only two wins from eight games before this match, the Sixers shouldn’t have been a threat, but they made use of some inconsistent bounce at the Sydney Cricket Ground, to the delight of their magenta crowd.

Heat capitulate after early collapse

Not much has gone right for the Heat off the field lately. Demolition man Chris Lynn has been absent with a calf strain. Joe Burns took up his mantle with some success, but was also withdrawn from this match after tearing his adductor tendon in training.

That left everything up to Brendon McCullum, but the former New Zealand captain couldn’t deliver, skewing a Johan Botha delivery for a sprawling Carlos Brathwaite catch at mid-off. Marnus Labuschagne was distracted by a hit to his box before chipping one up to square leg, and Sam Heazlett toe-ended a slog to mid-on.

Three catches in the circle, and a score of 3 for 12 after four overs, and the Heat had all but capitulated already. The Heat could still make it with a last win, but only if the Hurricanes and Renegades both drop their last two games.

Lyon takes flight, Abbott takes advantage

Nathan Lyon is always trying to make a point about his limited-overs skills. Playing his third BBL game after Test duty, he bowled as he ever has in this format. Remember this was a spinner who first made his mark playing T20s for South Australia, tossing the ball up and beating batsmen in the air.

He did the same on Thursday, first drawing Heazlett’s false shot, then later deceiving Ben Cutting to have him caught off the sweep at deep square leg. “Nathan Lyon, he’s done a lot of that in the last 12 to 18 months – clapping, watching batsmen walk off,” said Adam Gilchrist on the television commentary, as Lyon wrapped up figures of 2 for 17 from his four overs.

Sean Abbott finished up with the best numbers though, cleaning up the middle and lower order by consistently landing the ball back of a length, and getting a bit of venom out of a pitch that sometimes kept low. His haul was 4 for 11, with a couple of snorters gloved through to wicketkeeper Peter Nevill the highlight.

Missing player laments players who went missing

As the early slump of 3 for 12 slid away further to 7 for 53, then 73 all out, Lynn could only watch on. He had a good view, given he was down at the ground in team kit, and interviewed mid-match on the boundary line. “Recovery’s going well, had my first hit today and went for a run,” he told Lisa Sthalekar. “At the time the team sheet hadn’t been put in, and I was trying to get the coaches to get me over the line, but couldn’t get in.”

He was blunt, though, about his team-mates’ work in his absence, citing a pitch with variable bounce as the reason that his side should have taken a more circumspect approach. “We had to fight down and dig in, so some really soft dismissals are disappointing.”

Yasir we can, except when we can’t

Defending such a small total, the Heat had no option but to attack. McCullum is exactly that kind of captain. Needing to make something happen, he allotted the second over to Pakistani legspinner Yasir Shah. McCullum also stationed a slip for his bowler. It nearly worked.

Yasir didn’t quite land a couple, dragging them a bit short but putting enough overspin on them to make them shoot on straight. The first deceived the left-handed Daniel Hughes and drew the edge, but it flashed just wide of the slip for four. A couple of balls later, Joe Denly played the exact same shot to the same kind of ball, and also saw his edge fly wide.

To defend that kind of target, everything has to go exactly right. Yasir saw a glimpse of a world in which that might have happened, but had to accept that it remained a dimension away. He eventually got Hughes lbw with a lovely dipping legbreak, but by then the batsman had made half of the required score.

Exclusive: Japan in driver’s seat for Indian bullet train deals

Posted Posted by Admin in News     Comments Comments Off on Exclusive: Japan in driver’s seat for Indian bullet train deals
Jan

NEW DELHI/TOKYO (Reuters) – Japanese steel and engineering companies are in the driver’s seat to bag major supply contracts for a $17 billion Indian bullet train, several sources said, undermining a key component of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s economic policy – a push to ‘Make in India’.

Japan is funding most of the project, and Japanese companies are likely to supply at least 70 percent of the core components of the rail line, said five sources in New Delhi with direct knowledge of the matter.

A spokesman for Modi’s office declined comment.

A Japanese transport ministry official involved in the project said the two countries were still working out a strategy for the supply of key components, and would unveil a plan for procurements around July. The official spoke on condition of anonymity.

The September 2017 agreement between Japan and India for the bullet train project included two clauses – the promotion of ‘Make in India’ and ‘Transfer of Technology’ – through which New Delhi had hoped to set up manufacturing facilities in the country, generate jobs and get a toehold in Japanese technology.

Modi faces a general election in 2019 and is under pressure to provide more jobs to millions of unemployed in India. Critics also say the bullet train is wasteful and that the money could be better used elsewhere.

“The Japanese have reservations on certain issues because they have a concern that there is a difference in the culture and systems of Japan from the culture and systems in India,” said Achal Khare, the managing director of National High Speed Rail Corp Ltd (NHSRCL), the agency tasked to execute the bullet train project.

“The work culture is very different,” he told Reuters.

Khare did not elaborate but two Indian railways officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said their Japanese counterparts had raised questions about efficiency in Indian companies and their ability to meet timelines.

The World Bank currently ranks India 100th out of 190 nations on the ease of doing business, giving it relatively low marks for starting a business, enforcing contracts and dealing with construction permits.

Tomoyuki Nakano, director for international engineering affairs in the railway bureau at Japan’s transport ministry, said the issue was that Indian companies had no experience or technologies specialising in high-speed railway systems at present.

“I don’t think Japanese are concerned about a difference in the work culture,” Nakano said. He and other Japanese officials said efforts were continuing to fulfil the ‘Make in India’ component of the agreement by promoting collaborations between companies from the two countries.

Still, several Indian officials said it was by and large accepted that Indian companies would not have a major part to play in the bullet train project.

Japan will get major leeway because the bullet train is largely funded by a 50-year loan provided by its government, said a close aide of Modi, who spoke on condition of anonymity.

“At this stage to expect Indian companies to have a bigger share in manufacturing appears to be a little difficult,” said a senior official at the Indian government’s policy think-tank, NITI Aayog, who is involved in the negotiations.

Modi’s flagship ‘Make in India’ initiative aims to lift the share of manufacturing in India’s $2 trillion economy to 25 percent and create 100 million jobs by 2022.

However, midway through Modi’s five-year term, manufacturing was still at 17 percent of India’s GDP in the 2016/17 financial year from 15 percent previously.

ONLY ONE JOINT VENTURE

Japan’s Prime Minister Shinzo Abe laid the foundation stone for India’s first bullet train in September last year. It will link Mumbai with Ahmedabad, the largest commercial city in Modi’s home state Gujarat.

Nippon Steel and Sumitomo Metal Corp (5401.T), Japan’s biggest steelmaker, and other companies like JFE Holdings Inc (5411.T), Kawasaki Heavy Industries Ltd (7012.T), Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Ltd (7011.T), Toshiba Corp (6502.T) and Hitachi Ltd (6501.T) are likely to bid for various contracts, said three senior Indian government officials directly involved in the project.

Nippon Steel said it would not comment on specific projects.

JFE, Hitachi and Toshiba said they were interested in the project but had not finalised plans, including any possibilities of joint ventures with Indian firms.

Mitsubishi Heavy said it had not decided if it wanted to be involved.

The sole collaboration aimed at the bullet train project is between Kawasaki Heavy Industries and India’s Bharat Heavy Electricals Ltd (BHEL.NS), which aims to win carriage orders.

Japanese government officials have asked for more bullet train corridors in India before transferring technology, three senior Indian officials said.

But New Delhi is unlikely to announce any new projects until the final cost and commercial feasibility of the Mumbai-Ahmedabad link is clear, the officials said.

“It’s like a chicken and egg situation on technology. The Japanese want an economy of scale and business but the Indian view is that India is a big market that once this market is explored the business will automatically be generated,” said Khare from NHSRCL.

MISSED OPPORTUNITY

New Delhi has tried to help Indian steel companies grab a slice of the pie.

The Indian government last year mediated negotiations between Nippon Steel and India’s Jindal Steel and Power Ltd (JNSP.NS) to set up a joint venture to manufacture rails, but the talks fell through after the Japanese major raised quality concerns, three sources in New Delhi said.

State-owned Steel Authority of India (SAIL.NS) (SAIL), which for decades has been the main supplier of rails to Indian Railways, was also overlooked by Japanese companies due to quality concerns, the sources said.

Nippon Steel declined comment and while Jindal and SAIL did not reply to e-mails seeking comment.

Left with little choice, Indian firms will now largely provide raw materials like cement and supply manpower for the assembly of rails, the sources said.

India’s UltraTech Cement Ltd (ULTC.NS), Larsen Toubro Ltd (LART.NS), Bharat Heavy Electricals Ltd BHEL.NS and Ambuja Cements Ltd (ABUJ.NS) are among those in the race for the supply of construction materials and power, the two Indian railways officials said.

These companies did not respond to Reuters’ requests for comment.

iOS 11.2.2 Jailbreak: What We Know So Far – ValueWalk

The past few weeks have been filled with incredible progress in the iOS jailbreaking scene. Thanks to Ian Beer’s recently discovered exploit, there have been a number of utilities released in rapid succession that make unlocking the iPhone easier. With the latest emergency firmware update, many are looking forward to a potential iOS 11.2.2 jailbreak.

iOS 11.2.2 Jailbreak

iOS 11.2.2 Jailbreak

With a recent iOS 11.2.1 jailbreak demonstrated by Alibaba Pandora Labs, the possibility of an unlocked iPhone X running modern software became a real possibility. However, with the release of every new update comes new issues that may make unlocking Apple’s restrictive operating system a little bit harder. Considering that this newest update was to address Spectre vulnerability Safari browser, there’s a potential for the iOS 11.2.2 jailbreak to take a little more time to come to market.

However, there’s reason to believe that the iOS 11.2.2 jailbreak may not be dead in the water after all. Apple generally credits teams or individual hackers that discover flaws of potential exploits in their operating system, as this knowledge allows them to create a more secure user experience. Giving Apple the knowledge of how their phones were exploited is a double-edged sword, leading to an overall safer experience for the average user, but also often leading to patches that make these jailbreak actions that much harder.

Apple’s Security Content webpage doesn’t mention anything about patching the vulnerabilities demoed by Alibaba Pandora Labs, however, so it’s looking like it may be possible for an iOS 11.2.2 jailbreak to be based off of the iOS 11.2.1 version that is already in existence.

However, even if it’s true that the iOS 11.2.2 jailbreak is possible using the existing exploit found in iOS 11.2.1, it’s possible that a full release will never make it to the public. Alibaba Pandora Labs has already confirmed that the information regarding the jailbreak was obtained for research purposes rather than to unlock the phone for the public, so we may have to wait quite a while for an enterprising hacker with the public in mind to release his or her own take on an iOS 11.2.2 jailbreak. Knowing that such a jailbreak exists and having no access to it is certainly frustrating, and necessitates choosing between the most recent operating system and a phone without the annoying restrictions imposed by Apple.

An Uphill Battle

Despite the incredible strides the jailbreaking community has made in the past month or two, the fact remains that the jailbreaking scene isn’t nearly as healthy as it has been. With the recent shuttering of repositories such as ModMyi back in November, the need for and utility of a fully unlocked iPhone has been called into question. Even if we can unlock the iPhone X with an iOS 11.2.2 jailbreak, the fact remains that the actual utility of such a jailbreak is decreased when compared to previous generations of phones. With less demand for a jailbreak due to the implementation of new features that were previously lacking, and a jailbreaking process that is much harder than it was previously due to beefed up security from Apple, it may be a little while before we see a public iOS 11.2.2 jailbreak release.

Unless Alibaba Pandora Labs makes their research public, we’ll have to make the tough decision between being up-to-date and having a phone free of restriction. The fact that these exploits weren’t patched out is encouraging, however, and suggests that we may see an iOS 11.2.2 jailbreak sooner rather than later. The community is certainly riding on a second wind, and we’ll likely see fast progress if the past month is any indication.

Netanyahu says Israel, India both face threat from radical Islam

Posted Posted by Admin in News     Comments Comments Off on Netanyahu says Israel, India both face threat from radical Islam
Jan
17

NEW DELHI (Reuters) – Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Tuesday he was discussing with India ways to strengthen security cooperation against the menace of Islamist extremism that both democracies faced.

Netanyahu spoke while on a six-day tour of India, the first by an Israeli premier for 15 years, and is being feted by Indian counterpart Narendra Modi, whose Hindu nationalist party has long admired Israel for its tough posture against terrorism.

India, wary of upsetting Arab nations on which it was dependent for oil, and heeding the sentiments of its own large Muslim minority, kept a distance from Israel for decades. But under Modi, the two sides have embraced a closer relationship based on security and economics.

The right-wing Netanyahu told a security conference that India and Israel were two democracies with a natural affinity, but their open and liberal societies faced risks.

“Our way of life is being challenged, most notably, the quest for modernity, the quest for innovation (are) being challenged by radical Islam and its terrorist offshoots from a variety of corners,” he said.

Both Israel and India have long sought to counter militant Islamists – in Israel’s case, mainly from Gaza and Egypt’s Sinai region and, in India’s case, mainly from Pakistan. Away from the public eye, India and Israel have been cooperating against the threat through, in part, intelligence sharing, officials say.

“We’ve discussed in this visit how we can strengthen our two nations in the civilian areas, in security areas, in every area,” Netanyahu told the conference.

His trip to India comes just six months after Modi made the first trip by an Indian prime minister to Israel, during which he did not go to Ramallah, seat of the self-ruling Palestinian Authority and a customary stop for leaders visiting the region.

Netanyahu toured the Taj Mahal on Tuesday and will also visit Modi’s home state of Gujarat and India’s financial capital Mumbai.

He will join an 11-year-old Israeli boy, Moshe Holtzberg, whose parents were murdered by Pakistan-based militants in Mumbai in 2008, for a memorial event at Mumbai’s Jewish centre where the attack took place.

The boy, who lives with his grandparents in Israel, arrived on Tuesday as a guest of Modi.

Hrithik Roshan turned a year older on Wednesday and celebrated the day with his near and dear ones. The actor hosted a bash at his plush pad for his closest friends from the industry. There among the guests was ex-wife Sussanne Khan, who made it a point to attend the gathering.

Seen in a black asymmetrical dress, Sussanne topped the look off with chunky gold jewellery and minimal makeup. The star designer was all smiles as she was photographed in the driveway with Hrithik and a few friends. The birthday boy, being a thorough gentleman, was seen personally escorting his guests to their cars and bidding them goodbye after the pleasant evening.

While there were a number of birthday wishes that poured in for Hrithik on Wednesday, Sussanne’s warm greets deserved special mention. In an Instagram post, Sussanne shared a picture with a note that read, “Forever and always you stay the sunshine in my life… Happy happiest birthday. Smile that smile brightest and u always will spread that light… limitless.”

D’Arcy Short injures Kirsten’s jaw in nasty training incident

Posted Posted by Admin in News     Comments Comments Off on D’Arcy Short injures Kirsten’s jaw in nasty training incident
Jan
16

D’Arcy Short, the man of the moment in the BBL, left his Hobart Hurricanes coach Gary Kirsten needing emergency dental work after he was struck a nasty blow in the face at training.

Short, who has tallied a record BBL run total in this season’s competition to push himself into contention for an international call-up, was being given throwdowns by Kirsten in the indoor school at Bellerive Oval when he fiercely struck one back at his coach, who suffered a cracked jaw and needed dental work to fix multiple broken teeth although did not required surgery.

The incident again showed the dangers posed to coaches when feeding hard-hitting batsmen in the nets and George Bailey, the Hurricanes captain, said Kirsten was fortunate that the injuries were not more severe.

“It was wet, so we were in the indoor centre,” Bailey told cricket.com.au. “Darce just whacked one back at him that he didn’t pick up in time.

“He is hitting the ball pretty cleanly and hard at the moment. It was a bit messy. [Kirsten] has actually come out of it very luckily in the big scheme of things.

“He said that he’s probably been a blas about that over the years. Everyone has had [helmets] on since.”

In recent times, the requirement for coaches to protect themselves has started to be taken more seriously. Darren Lehmann, Australia’s coach, has worn full baseball and hockey masks when giving throwdowns while Graham Thorpe, one of England’s assistant coaches, has also worn a helmet when providing throwdowns using the ‘dog-thrower’ that is now very popular for feeding batsmen but also enables the coaches to get dangerously close.

Israel’s Netanyahu pushes for India free trade deal during rare visit

Posted Posted by Admin in News     Comments Comments Off on Israel’s Netanyahu pushes for India free trade deal during rare visit
Jan
16

NEW DELHI (Reuters) – India and Israel will begin work on a free trade pact that Israel has been pushing for, officials said on Monday, as Benjamin Netanyahu began a first visit by an Israeli prime minister in 15 years.

India and Israel have built close ties over the years, largely centered on arms purchases, away from the public eye. But under Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, whose nationalist party has long admired Israel for its tough approach to terrorism, ties have flowered across the economy.

“We have had diplomatic relations for 25 years, but something different is happening now,” Netanyahu said soon after the two sides signed nine agreements covering cooperation in cyber security, space and oil and gas exploration.

Israel has given initial approval for Indian energy companies to explore oil and gas in the eastern Mediterranean, in the first such move by Indian firms in that region.

Netanyahu, who said he saw a “kindred spirit” in Modi in terms of getting things done, pushed for a free trade pact with Asia’s third largest economy during the talks on Monday.

Modi agreed to open trade discussions, Indian foreign ministry secretary in charge of economic relations Vijay Gokhale told reporters. “A delegation from the commerce ministry will actually go next month for discussions on trade,” he said.

Bilateral trade has jumped from $200 million in 1992, when the two countries opened diplomatic relations, to $4.16 billion in 2016, largely in favour of Israel.

Netanyahu, accompanied by a 130-member delegation, wants to increase exports to India by 25 percent over the three years.

Israel has emerged as one of India’s biggest suppliers of weapons alongside the United States and long-term partner Russia.

But the two sides were tightlipped over the fate of a $500 million deal to buy anti-tank missiles from Israel’s state-owned defence contractor Rafael that India called off just weeks before Netanyahu’s first.

The Indian government wanted to support a local programme to build the missile but Israel has since pushed hard to revive the order. It has offered to transfer technology and eventually build the missile with a local partner in a boost for Modi’s signature Make-in-India drive for a domestic defence base.

Without referring to the anti-tank missile deal, Modi said he had invited Israeli companies to take advantage of India’s liberalised rules in the defence sector to “make more in India with our companies.”

Last year, Modi made a first trip to Israel by an Indian prime minister ever.

Jailbreak iOS 10.3.x with G0blin Tool for 64-bit A7-A9 iPhone Devices

You can jailbreak iOS 10.3.x using a new tool called G0blin. This tool supports all 64-bit devices. A7-A9 devices.

G0blin iOS 10.3.x Jailbreak is Now Available in Beta. Supports 64-bit Devices.

Needless to say that the iOS jailbreak scene has kicked into action ever since Ian Beer released the first ever iOS 11.x jailbreak exploits into the wild. We saw a couple of jailbreak tools released since then and now a new one has made it onto the scene called G0blin.

electra-2Related CoolStar Has Announced A Developer-Oriented Jailbreak Tool ‘Electra’ For iOS 11.0-11.1.2

While not an iOS 11.x jailbreak, it focuses on iOS 10.3.x users instead. If you have a device that is capable of running iOS 10 and is at least an iPhone 5s (with Apple’s A7 chip) then you can get in on the action immediately.

But there are a few things that you should know right off the bat. First and foremost: this is a beta jailbreak. Which means that there are chances of things going wrong during the process, therefore I will highly recommend that you wait for a few more betas to arrive before jumping onto it. The current beta has issues with Touch ID in the App Store. If you rely on it for buying apps, then you might want to kiss it goodbye for a while.

Secondly, this is a semi-untethered jailbreak. This means that you have to side-load an IPA file to your iPhone using Cydia Impactor. Once done, simply ‘Trust’ the install from the Settings app, and you will be jailbroken after following a few on-screen steps.

And since this is a semi-untethered jailbreak, therefore your device will lose the jailbreak status after a week as the signed certificate will expire. This means that you have to put it into the jailbroken state again manually. Furthermore, if your device loses power or restarts, you have to go through the process again. Not really an inconvenience if you’re extremely careful with your device, but keep in mind before going ahead.

South Africa’s lead cut below 50 as Kohli moves to 141*

Vernon Philander’s throw hits the stumps just as Hardik Pandya’s bat and foot are in the air over the crease

Lunch: India 287 for 8 (Kohli 141*, Ishant 0*) trail South Africa 335 by 48 runs
Live scorecard and ball-by-ball details

A rollicking seventh-wicket partnership between Virat Kohli and R Ashwin enabled India to narrow their first-innings deficit to 48 by lunch on day three in Centurion. The two came together after Hardik Pandya lost his wicket in a moment of carelessness in the seventh over of the day, and added 71 at close to five an over to put the pressure back on South Africa. The second new ball brought South Africa the wickets of Ashwin and Mohammed Shami, leaving India eight down at lunch, but Kohli was still at the crease, his latest Test-match masterpiece now worth 141.

Pandya began the day looking comfortable against the pace of Lungi Ngidi and then Kagiso Rabada from one end and the swing of Vernon Philander, bowling with the keeper up to the stumps, at the other. With Kohli quickly moving from his overnight 85 to bring up his 21st Test hundred in the sixth over of the day, the sixth-wicket partnership was beginning to worry South Africa when they were gifted a wicket out of the blue.

Sent back by Kohli after he pushed one to mid-on, Pandya was run out by a direct hit – he was past the crease when the throw hit the stumps, but he was in midair, having failed to ground either his bat or his feet. At that point, India were still trailing by 126.

In walked Ashwin. South Africa had targeted his body in Cape Town as well, and Rabada had greeted him to the crease by hitting him on the index finger of his right hand. This time, Rabada smacked his left glove off the third ball he faced, and followed up with another bouncer.

Ashwin’s response was to go after Rabada in his next over, whenever he pitched anything remotely in his half of the pitch. Three fours flew through the off side, all off shots hit on the up, and Ashwin was suddenly batting on 22. An edge in Rabada’s next over fell just short of the diving AB de Villiers at gully – the decision went up to the third umpire – and India could breathe again.

With Rabada losing his radar somewhat in an all-out search for wickets, he ended up conceding 40 in a seven-over spell. There was a low full toss, which Kohli clipped away to the midwicket boundary, and a short, wide one that Ashwin cut for another four. Boundaries came off the other bowlers too, the pick of them a sweetly-timed chip over mid-off by Ashwin off Keshav Maharaj’s left-arm spin. In his previous over, the 79th of India’s innings, Maharaj had got turn and steep bounce to get Ashwin to send one looping over slip off the shoulder of his bat – this may have caused South Africa to delay taking the second new ball,

They took it at the start of the 82nd over, and Kohli, correctly guessing that the first ball would be a fullish outswinger, sashayed forward and drove it to the cover boundary. He would play a similar shot in Philander’s next over too, but by then India had lost two more wickets; Ashwin drove away from his body and nicked a Philander outswinger to second slip, and Shami edged a steeply bouncing Morne Morkel delivery to first slip.

Myanmar, Bangladesh meet amid doubts about Rohingya repatriation plan

DHAKA/YANGON (Reuters) – Hamid Hussain, a 71-year-old Rohingya Muslim farmer, first fled Myanmar for Bangladesh in 1992. He went home the next year under a repatriation deal between the two neighbours, only to repeat the journey last September when violence flared once more.

Officials from Myanmar and Bangladesh meet on Monday to discuss how to implement another deal, signed on Nov. 23, on the return of more than 650,000 Rohingya who have escaped an army crackdown since late August. Hussain is one of many who say they fear this settlement may be no more permanent than the last.

“Bangladesh authorities had assured us that Myanmar would give us back our rights, that we would be able to live peacefully,” said Hussain, who now lives in a makeshift refugee camp in southeast Bangladesh.

“We went back but nothing changed. I will go back again only if our rights and safety are guaranteed – forever.”

Buddhist-majority Myanmar has for years denied Rohingya citizenship, freedom of movement and access to many basic services such as healthcare and education. They are considered illegal immigrants from mainly Muslim Bangladesh.

The authorities have said returnees could apply for citizenship if they can show their forebears have lived in Myanmar. But the latest deal – like the one in 1992 – does not guarantee citizenship and it is unclear how many would qualify.

Monday’s meeting in Myanmar’s capital Naypyitaw will be the first for a joint working group set up to hammer out the details of the November repatriation agreement. The group is made up of civil servants from both countries.

Two senior Bangladesh officials who are involved in the talks acknowledged that much was left to be resolved and it was unclear when the first refugees could actually return. One of the key issues to be worked out was how the process for jointly verifying the identities of returnees would work, they said.

“Any return is chaotic and complex,” said Shahidul Haque, Bangladesh’s top foreign ministry official who will lead Dhaka’s 14-member team in the talks. “The challenge is to create an environment conducive for their return.”

Myanmar government spokesman Zaw Htay said returnees would be able to apply for citizenship “after they pass the verification process”.

Zaw Htay added that Myanmar had proposed that a group of 500 Hindus who fled to Bangladesh and have already agreed to be repatriated, alongside 500 Muslims, could form the first batch of returnees.

“The first repatriation is important – we can learn from the experiences, good or bad,” he said.

MYANMAR SETS UP CAMPS

Bangladesh officials said they would begin the process this month by sharing with Myanmar authorities a list of 100,000 Rohingya, picked at random from among registered refugees.

Haque said Myanmar officials would vet the names against their records of residents before the August exodus, and those approved would then be asked if they wanted to go back.

Refugees without documents would be asked to identify streets, villages and other landmarks near their former homes as proof of their right to return, said Haque.

A Myanmar agency set up to oversee repatriation said in a statement on Thursday that two temporary “repatriation and assessment camps” and one other site to accommodate returnees had been set up.

Myint Kyaing, permanent secretary at Myanmar’s Ministry of Labour, Immigration and Population, told Reuters earlier this month Myanmar would be ready to begin processing least 150 people a day through each of the two camps by Jan. 23.

As well as checking their credentials as residents of Myanmar, he said, authorities would check returnees against lists of suspected “terrorists”.

Myint Kyaing declined to comment on how long the repatriation would take but conceded the process after the 1992 agreement had taken more than 10 years.

United Nations agencies working in the camps clustered around Cox’s Bazar, in southeastern Bangladesh, have voiced scepticism about the resettlement plans.

The U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) and the International Organization for Migration said their offers to help with the process have not been taken up by the two countries.

“Further measures are needed to ensure safe, voluntary and sustainable repatriation of refugees to their places of origin and to address the underlying root causes of the crisis,” said Caroline Gluck, a spokeswoman for the UNHCR in Cox’s Bazar.

The UNHCR says refugees it has surveyed want guarantees that international agencies will be involved in overseeing the process and more information about the security situation in their home areas.

WHO WILL GO? WHO WILL PAY?

While many Rohingya say they want to go back to Myanmar, most of the more than a dozen who spoke to Reuters said they were scared to do so now.

“I am not going back. No one’s going back,” said Hafizulla, a 37-year-old Rohingya man. “We are scared to go back without any U.N. intervention. They can accuse us later, they can arrest us. They may accuse us of helping the militants.”

The military offensive the refugees fled, which was prompted by Rohingya insurgent attacks on police and army posts, has been described by the United States and U.N. as ethnic cleansing. Myanmar rejects that, saying troops did not target civilians.

“You can have all the agreements in the world, and set up all the reception centres and everything, but it won’t make a difference unless the conditions in Myanmar are such that people feel confident that they can go back and live in peace, and have equal rights,” said a Western diplomat in Dhaka.

The second Bangladesh official, Refugee Relief and Rehabilitation Commissioner Mohammed Abul Kalam, said the “Rohingyas’ reluctance to go back” was an issue that needed to be addressed.

He said the repatriation process would cost “millions of dollars” but funding details had not yet been agreed and were not expected to be discussed at Monday’s meeting.

Japan, one of Myanmar’s biggest aid donors, said on Friday it was giving an emergency grant of around $3 million to help with the return of the Rohingya.
