Ankara: A suspected ISIS suicide bomber allegedly blew himself up on Sunday during a raid on the terrorist’s hideout in Turkey’s Gaziantep town near the border with Syria, injuring five policemen. The country is currently hosting the G20 summit overshadowed by the deadly attacks in Paris.

A statement issued by the Gaziantep governor’s office said that the raid was conducted on Saturday. The suicide bomber detonated his explosives when police broke down the fifth-floor apartment, The Hindustan Times reported.

Two women have been detained in the raid while three children were taken into state protection. Police seized explosive materials and several machine guns during the raid.

In the wake of deadly attacks in Paris, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Sunday urged “all humanity” to state united against terrorism.

“We stand united in strongly condemning the dreadful acts of terror,” Modi said two days after Islamic State terrorists massacred nearly 130 people in the French capital, adding that “Entire humanity must stand together and be one against terrorism.”

He said the need for a united global effort to combat terrorism has never been more urgent.

“This must also be a priority for BRICS nations,” he said.

Modi's LPG scheme reduced household air pollution: Study, VOA

The Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojana (PMUY), a pet project of Prime Minister Narendra Modi that aims to provide every household Liquid Petroleum Gas (LPG) replacing wood or coal fuel, has been found useful in tackling household air pollution, a new report said.

The study, “The India State-Level Disease Burden Initiative”, released by the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR), Public Health Foundation of India (PHFI), Ministry of Health and Family Welfare and The Lancet, stated that in 2017 in India 12.4 lakh deaths were caused due to air pollution, of which 4.8 lakh were due to household air pollution.

“There is increasing political momentum in India to address air pollution. Household air pollution is reducing in India faciliated by the Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojana. The findings systematically document the variations among states, which would serve as a useful guide for making further progress in reducing the adverse impact of air pollution in the country,” Proffesor Balram Bhargava, Secretary, Health Research, Ministry of Health, and Director General, ICMR, said.

According to the report, reasons for the household air pollution are mainly residential burning of solid fuels for cooking and to some extent heating. The major types of such fuel are wood, dung, agricultural residues, coal and charcoal.

The study found that states like Bihar, Jharkhand, Odisha, Chhattisgarh, Assam, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and Meghalaya, who stood low in Semi Demographic Index (SDI – a composite measure based on per capita income, average educational attainment and fertility rate), were using more solid fuels.
