Finland jets monitor Russian fighters on border flights

Source: BBC

Finland’s Defence Ministry says it has scrambled jets twice in the past 24 hours to monitor suspected airspace violations by Russian fighters.

A Russian Su-27 fighter was detected in the Gulf of Finland south of Porvoo late on Thursday, the ministry said.

Another Russian Su-27 was detected on a suspicious flight there earlier. “Russian military aviation over the Baltic Sea has been intense,” it said.

Finland is not in Nato but co-operates closely with the 28-nation alliance.

Porvoo lies just east of Helsinki, and is 140km (87 miles) from the Russian border.

Nato has complained repeatedly of provocative Russian military flights in the Baltic region. But it is rare for Finland to report such suspected violations.

Russian bombers also regularly fly long patrol missions from the Arctic down to the North Atlantic or Bay of Biscay, testing Nato reactions on the way.

And Russia plans to step up similar patrols in the North Pacific, sending bombers from bases in eastern Siberia.

Russia was angered by the deployment of Nato forces in the three Baltic states – Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania – after those nations broke away from the Soviet Union in 1991 and joined Nato in 2004.

During the Cold War – which ended in 1991 – Finland remained neutral and developed strong trade ties with the Soviet Union.

Indonesian arrested for streaming porn on billboard

Indonesian police have arrested a man accused of hacking into a public billboard in Jakarta and streaming a pornographic film.

The 24-year-old IT analyst has admitted the crime, said police, for which he could face up to six years in jail.

Motorists were left in shock last week when footage from a Japanese porn film was displayed on an electronic screen in south Jakarta.

The video ran for five minutes on Friday before power was eventually cut.

However the clip had already been captured on many mobile phones and soon spread across social media.

The man, who was arrested in his office, allegedly carried out the prank after seeing login details displayed on the billboard.

“The suspect claims he worked alone,” Jakarta Police Chief Muhammad Iriawan told news agency AFP. “But we are still investigating whether he was working alone, whether he had a particular motive or whether he was just fooling around.”

Access to pornographic websites is blocked in Muslim-majority Indonesia, which has in the past also banned popular websites such as Tumblr and Vimeo for adult content.

The police chief previously told the Associated Press that the perpetrator could be charged under either the Electronic Transaction Law, which carries a maximum prison sentence of six years and a fine of 1 billion rupiah ($77,000; £60,000) or the Pornography Law, which carries a prison sentence of up to 12 years.

Pornographic film appears on billboard in Jakarta

Source: BBC

Motorists and residents in south Jakarta, Indonesia, were left in shock after a pornographic film appeared on a public billboard.

Footage of a couple in a sexual encounter was displayed on a large electronic screen located on a busy street close to the mayor’s office.

The video ran for five minutes on Friday before power was eventually cut.

South Jakarta’s head of public information Ady Wiryono Lestari said the incident was “serious”.

Ms Lestari said she did not know how the material appeared or who was responsible.

A police investigation is now under way to determine whether the billboard, which is owned by a private company, was hacked, local media report.

The news was met with amusement on Twitter with users debating whether the footage was the result of an unfortunate accident or a plot by professional hackers.

“Oh Jakarta, you never cease to amaze me,” Pete Cronin ‏wrote.

The city has an issue with the advertising boards with 29 removed in recent weeks for not having the correct permit or license.

On Saturday a billboard is thought to have caused the collapse of a pedestrian bridge, prompting the Jakarta administration to consider banning the screens in areas that pose a risk to the public.
