National Guard arrives in Hawaii town threatened by lava

PAHOA Hawaii (Reuters) - National Guard troops arrived in a Hawaii town threatened by a slow-moving river of molten lava on Thursday, and were greeted with cheers by residents of the Big Island community where they are to provide security as the volcanic flow advances. The lava flow from the Kilauea volcano has been slithering toward the Big Island village of Pahoa for weeks, although it slowed to a turtle's pace on Thursday and at last watch had advanced only a few feet (meters) over several hours, said Darryl Oliveira, director of Hawaii County Civil Defense. #facebook #United States #India #China #Brazil #Technology #France #Middle East #United Kingdom #Mexico #Hawaii #opinion

U.S. defense chief will not discuss "critical" Syria memo

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel stressed the need for honesty in internal government discussions on Thursday as he declined comment on a two-page internal memo he wrote on Syria policy, described as critical by people familiar with its contents. The memo from Hagel to White House National Security Adviser Susan Rice was first reported by the New York Times, which said he warned President Barack Obama's Syria policy was in jeopardy due to its failure to clarify its intentions toward Syrian President Bashar al-Assad #facebook #Japan #Syria #Brazil #Technology #France #Russia #Latin America #Mexico
