ISIL de Facto capital Raqqa falls

Kurdish-led forces in Syria say they’ve taken control of the northern city of Raqqa, the de facto capital of the Islamic State militant group.

The spokesperson for the Syrian Democratic Forces confirmed they have seized the entire city in a telephone interview Tuesday with NHK. The forces launched a full offensive against Raqqa in June with the support of the U.S. –led coalition. Islamic State militants seized the Syrian city in 2014.

奪取した(占領した)、

The group once controlled vast areas that straddle Iraq and Syria, but they have lost ground due to attacks by the Iraqi and Syrian militaries, the U.S. –led coalition, and Russian forces.

In July, the militants lost Mosul, their key stronghold in Iraq. The whereabouts and fate of the group’s leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, are known. There were reports in the past he was killed or injured in attack, but those reports have not been confirmed.

Under al-Baghdadi’s leadership, the group has been using the Internet to spread its ideology and call for terrorist attacks against other nations.

Buddhist monk service over Amazon starts

Internet retail giant Amazon started a service which can arrange a monk to attend a memorial service anywhere in the country. Monks can be ordered in one click, and can be paid for by credit card. They have been flooded with monks eager to register with the service. On the other hand, there have been criticism from the Buddhist community such as “I feel uncomfortable showing the amount of the donation” and “It’s no different than hiring a wedding DJ. The integrity of monks is fading.”
