   Any N-E-W reports on founder of Institute for Reporters Freedom & Safety IRFS, Mr. Emin Huseynov, please?

- AZERBAIJAN: The Swiss embassy in Baku has been secretly sheltering Azerbaijani journalist and human rights activist Emin Huseynov for the past six months, a Swiss national television report has revealed on Wednesday 11 February - the Press Emblem Campaign (PEC) urges Azerbaijan to grant Huseynov safe passage out of the country (read on PEC NEWS)
Since August 2014, the human rights defender and journalist Emin Huseynov of Azerbaijan has been forced into hiding at the Swiss embassy in Baku. As chairman of the Institute for Reporters’ Freedom and Safety (IRFS), a local NGO, Huseynov is one of many victims of an intense government crackdown on free speech and civil society that has taken place in Azerbaijan over the past year

It seems as if just leaked photos from the Caesar files revealed new evidence about the facility thousands of detainees were tortured to death according to the "Caesar Report".

We knew the facility was named as Military Hospital 601 now we have further evidence to support claim. Note: It´s located directly beneath the Presidential Palace in Damascus.

The exact location: http://t.co/Iaor9hDRjv

Al-Furqan, a media arm of the Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL), released an audio recording from the spokesman of IS, Abu Mohammad al-Adnani al-Shami, officially confirming acceptance of Boko Haram's bayat, or allegiance. A download link to the audio clip was shared on the anonymous information-sharing website manbar.me, a preferred method of dissemination for Islamic State. It has been widely retweeted by IS-affiliated accounts on Twitter.

We are seeking a translation of the clip: http://manbar.me/alkalimah

World Press Photo strands by decision to award staged photos.
https://nppa.org/node/70388
WPP wrote, "The contest requires photojournalists do not stage pictures to show something that would otherwise have not taken place." The National Press Photographers Association (NPPA) interprets this as "permission to photographers to set-up or stage scenes that would 'ordinarily' take place." NPPA also notes that "serious students of Ethics and Photojournalism may have a problem with the conclusion".
The photographer told World Press about this photograph, "My cousin accepted to be portrayed while fornicating with a girl in his friend's car. For them it was not strange. There are parkings popular for the couples exchanging sex with others, also single men and women can watch anonymously the ...

Amid scathing criticism, WPP re-opened their investigation into these staged photos.  WPP just disqualified Giovanni Troilo.
http://www.worldpressphoto.org/content/world-press-photo-withdraws-award-giovanni-troilo%E2%80%99s-charleroi-story

According to WPP, a key issue was that a picture allegedly taken in Charleroi, Belgium was actually from Molenbeek, Brussels. This was false information and led to the disqualification.  NOTE: Troilo was NOT disqualified for staging photos; he was only disqualified for misrepresenting the location.

We're checking out the reports of the Tunisia town of Tatouine being used as a waypoint for Islamic State fighters en route to Libya (http://edition.cnn.com/2015/03/23/africa/tunisia-fallout/index.html). It doesn't appear, as has been reported elsewhere, that the town is a waypoint for IS, or is under direct threat from IS. Anyone have any more information on this story?
The area around Tataouine was once a backdrop for "Star Wars." Now, the town a way-station for jihadists crossing the Tunisia-Libya border.

Has a serious discussion on the veracity of the video of the execution of the "Israeli spy" taken place somewhere online? 

Several facts (such as the blurry VFX and lack of both muzzle flash and visible spray of blood from the back of the executed hostage on the first shot, the sound effects for the other shots, the absence of continuity in terms of blood splatter on the guy's face once he is laying down and overall editing) cast for me and my colleague doubts as to the veracity of the video. 

What are your takes on this?

As in the other video showing a child "executing" a prisoner it is unclear. We certainly weren't able to establish that the child kills the prisoner in the footage. Like you, have doubts as to its authenticity in that respect.

AFAICT, the picture from Twitter came from Facebook. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=1455992464690987

The Facebook picture has undergone multiple resaves and cropping from a screenshot. (If I were into conspiracies, I would suspect intentionally trying to hide when this picture was created.)

The color has been significantly altered. However, the bottom two heads seem to have different coloring from the other heads.  And the top three heads look like they have been vertically shifted while the other heads have not. There are too many resaves/alterations to determine if they were digitally added or if they are simply the victims of bad artificial vignetting and post-processing.

Two RAF fighter jets intercepted two Russian bomber aircraft off the British coast on Wednesday. Several hours after this incident, Zevda, a government-owned Russian television channel, released video (http://tvzvezda.ru/news/vstrane_i_mire/content/201502190952-euht.htm)  they said shows NATO fighter aircraft escorting Russian military aircraft.  Zevda did not explicitly state when the footage was filmed. However, based on the lighting conditions and the squadron insignia seen on the RAF jets, Storyful has ascertained that at least part of this footage shows an interception on January 28 (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-31049952) rather than Wednesday's incident. 

On Wednesday, the fighter jets were deployed from RAF Coningsby in Lincolnshire. However,  the squadron badge on one of the British fighter jets seen at 0.27 in the video is that of the 1 Squadron (http://www.raf.mod.uk/organisation/1squadron.cfm) which is based in RAF Lossiemouth, not Coningsby.  Based on this, we are able to conclude that at least part of this footage is of the January interception when jets from RAF Lossiemouth were scrambled to intercept two Russian Tu-95 aircraft (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-31049952).

Couldn't hear any specific locations, times / names in there - just numbers (radio frequency?), and confirming transmissions.
