“Merlins are a big threat to their recovery,” said Nathan Cooper, a research ecologist with Smithsonian’s National Zoo and Conservation Biology Institute. Rather, they illustrate nature’s complexity and the importance of protecting biological communities, not just individual species. Fishing groups contend the seals could threaten cod stocks that regulators are struggling to rebuild after decades of overfishing. NATURE AT WORKConflicts between recovering species and ones still in trouble don’t always mean something is wrong, scientists say. The eagle’s recovery “complicates the conservation of certain other species,” Lyons said.

TRIPOLI: A European Union drone is helping Libyan forces intercept boats carrying migrants in the Mediterranean, who are then "hauled back to arbitrary detention and abuse", Human Rights Watch said on Monday. "Frontex claims the surveillance is to aid rescue, but the information facilitates interceptions and returns to Libya ... (despite) overwhelming evidence of torture and exploitation of migrants and refugees in Libya," HRW said in a statement. HRW said Frontex’s drone appeared to have helped Libyan forces intercept a boat in international waters, without informing nearby rescuers. It said it was investigating how "the shift from sea to air surveillance contributes to the cycle of extreme abuse in Libya". The HRW report comes days after media reports that Frontex routinely covered up illegal "pushbacks" of migrants by the Greek coastguard.

Bin Laden was killed in Pakistan on May 2, 2011, in operation carried out by US Navy Seals after a nearly decade-long hunt. US intelligence officials have been aware for years of a network helping Al-Zawahri dodge US intelligence officials hunting for him, but didn’t have a bead on his possible location until recent months. Al-Zawahri was hardly a household name like bin Laden, but he played an enormous role in the terror group’s operations. Photos from the time often showed the glasses-wearing, mild-looking Egyptian doctor sitting by the side of bin Laden. Some militants whose association with bin Laden predated Al-Zawahri’s always saw him as an arrogant intruder.

Output has climbed to 1.2 million barrels per day, Oil Minister Mohamed Oun said in a telephone interview with Bloomberg. The North African nation’s oil output has been hit by a power struggle between rival governments headed by Abdul Hamid Dbeibah in the west and Fathi Bashagha in the east. Each claim to be the legitimate prime minister, who each claim to be the legitimate prime minister. Libya’s oil output has see-sawed over the past years, largely as a result of the political and security unrest in the country that ensued after the ouster of Moammar Al Qaddafi in 2011. Power struggles between rival governments have compounded years of neglect in developing or revamping the oil infrastructure.

Oil production in Libya has hit 1.2 million barrels per day, the level the country was producing prior to its declaration of force majeure in April, according to the new leadership of the National Oil Company (NOC). Production was said to have reached 1.13 million bpd by July 27. It remains unclear whether the 1.2 million barrels per day Libya is allegedly producing now is referring to only crude oil or crude oil plus condensate. Saleh says the legitimate government of Libya is led by Bashagha, who has so far failed to install himself in Tripoli. The situation has led to challenges in obtaining information, including with respect to oil production figures, with rival governments issuing contradictory statements.

Libya’s crude output has rebounded to its early April levels, the OPEC member’s oil minister said, in an increase that could help cool a jittery global oil market. Unfortunately for bulls, as Bloomberg's Nour Al Ali correctly notes, open interest in Brent crude indicates that low liquidity is driving the market at the moment. When both prices and open interest fall, that could mean that long positions are being liquidated. This chart that Alex Longley showed me earlier today shows aggregate open interest adjusted for prices near historic highs." The US president said he expected “further steps” from the Saudis to cool oil prices and safeguard the global economy at the close of his trip to Jeddah two weeks ago.

Libya: UN Experts Demand Release Of Woman DetaineeGENEVA (1 August 2022) – UN experts* today called for the immediate release of Iftikhar Boudra, a Libyan woman arrested in Benghazi four years ago, and demanded that authorities provide her with urgent medical treatment after she suffered various forms of violence during her detention. “We are gravely concerned about the sexual, physical and psychological violence to which Ms. Iftikhar Boudra has allegedly been subjected since her arrest,” the UN experts said. The reported cases of abuse and exploitation include inhuman conditions of detention, widespread torture, including sexual violence, and a critical lack of healthcare for detainees. Despite some progress, human rights abuses are rampant in Libya. UNSMIL has documented killings, enforced disappearances, sexual violence, including rape, arbitrary arrests and detentions, torture, attacks against activists and human rights defenders, and hate crimes.
