Unmarried expats in Oman to face eviction

DUBAI: Unmarried expats and workers living in Oman’s residential areas have up to three days to register with the Muscat Municipality or will face eviction, national daily Times of Oman reported.
“Muscat’s municipality is in the process of implementing a judicial ruling against the home owners that house single residents in residential neighborhoods, without prior permission of the municipality,” the municipality said in a statement.
Earlier this year, the municipality raided properties in a residential area where single expats were living in violation of local laws.
Special housing complexes made for single expats were being planned in Bausher, Amerat and Mabella, according to the municipality.

Daesh demands release of Iraq women prisoners in hostage video

  • Daesh released hostage video demanding release of all Sunni women prisoners in Iraqi jails
  • The video was published on extremist online forums on Saturday

BAGHDAD: The Daesh group has released a hostage video demanding the release of all Sunni women prisoners from Iraqi jails.
The group says it is giving the government a deadline of three days before it executes the six men in the video, who identify themselves as Iraqi policemen and militiamen.
The video was published on extremist online forums on Saturday, one week after the Daesh group announced it had kidnapped 17 policemen and members of Iraq’s Popular Mobilization Forces, which are predominantly Shiite militia groups that fight for the government.
Prime Minister Haidar Al-Abadi has come under pressure in recent weeks for the reemergence of Daesh hostage-taking in Iraq, after the government declared victory over the militant group last year.
