televised programme on Saturday night Parliament of Iran Wikimedia Commons Alavi said the operation was carried out by security forces on Saturday in collaboration with the secret services of neighbouring countries reports Efe news The minister said the terrorist had fled the country after the attacks claimed by the Islamic State but did not reveal his identity or the country where he was killed In May the intelligence ministry identified and neutralised almost one terror cell every day but did not make the figures public to avoid spreading panic Alavi added On Saturday the authorities also announced the arrests of eight people in Alborz province north of Tehran who allegedly provided logistical support to the attackers With the latest arrests the number of people detained since 7

Farah has unfinished business with the marathon but accepts it will take time to master the distance when he steps away from the track after next season’s world championships Farah’s back-to-back Olympic 5000 and 10000 metres gold medals and five world titles make him one of the greatest distance runners of all time The Briton plans to bow out after the world championships in London next year and will then turn his attention to the roads Farah ran a relatively disappointing 2 hours eight minutes and 21 seconds in his only marathon in London in 2014 That time still behind Steve Jones’s 1985 British record of 2:0713 is almost six minutes outside Dennis Kimetto’s 2:0257 world record and considerably slower than the times being run by the leading Africans to win the big-money Marathon Majors “I do have a lot of plans to run the marathon” Farah told Reuters on Monday “My aim is to get the world champs out of the way then see what I can do on the road “I believe I have to learn about the event I have to understand what it takes “I’m good on the track but it’s taken me years to be able to get there And same thing on the road “My first marathon was two hours eight it was okay but it wasn’t great To be able to mix with the guys I’ll need to run a lot faster than that” By the time Farah now 33 does turn his attention to the classic distance he might find that 202 is no longer enough Talk of a sub-two hour marathon has been a staple among athletics fans for years but gained new impetus last week with Nike’s announcement of its “Breaking2” project for a focused attack on the mark albeit in a controlled environment somewhat at odds with the traditional road race format Farah a Nike ambassador said he was intrigued to see what they might achieve “It’s good in a way to see what they can do and that they’re looking that far ahead because I believe that if you do get ready for it it’s possible” he said “I don’t know how long it will take – a year two years three years but if you try hard then it’s possible and it’s great that Nike have put a massive investment into it and let’s see what they can do” For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Top

asked about Zakir Naik and whether she has met him Qureshi wife said “No I haven’t met him I think Zakir Naik is a religious scholar and is against ISIS The Kerala police and the Mumbai ATS have been very cooperative” Later in the day the IRF issued a statement “Dr Zakir Naik and IRF have repeatedly condemned AISIS for being anti-Islamic It is unthinkable to assume that a staff of IRF will ever encourage anyone to join AISIS Dr Naik had taken a staff meeting a year back condemning AISIS and had warned people not to get misguided by those who support AISIS According to Dr Naik AISIS is Anti

interested in Islamic literature and information contact IRF from time to time” the statement read According to the police Qureshi has been named as an accused in an Unlawful Activities Prevention Act

by Naik The Special Branch of the Mumbai police was preparing the report that was to be submitted to the government The report was to primarily state if a case is made out against the preacher A

January 10 2016 12:09 pm British documentary filmmaker Stevan Riley on the enigma that was Marlon Brando and going through thousands of tapes to bring the actor to life again Top News Blue dots and lines flicker in the centre of the screen and gradually as though in a dance merge to form a section of Marlon Brando’s face Much before his death in 2004 in the 1980s the actor had undergone a procedure to have a 3D scan of his head rendered by Hollywood’s visual effects wizard Scott Billups In his documentary feature Listen To Me Marlon based on the life of Hollywood’s “greatest actor” Riley uses the scan to great effect — and the ghost of Brando speaks to the audience Riley is as chameleon-like as his latest subject While his first documentary Rave Against the Machine (2002) explored the underground music scene in Sarajevo during the Bosnian War his second Blue Blood was about varsity boxing rivalry between Oxford and Cambridge universities In 2010 he won a slew of awards for Fire in Babylon about the record-breaking West Indies cricket team of the 1970s and ’80s before making Everything Or Nothing: The Untold Story of 007 about the James Bond franchise in 2012 In Mumbai last month for a screening of his latest film at Johnnie Walker The Journey a multi-disciplinary arts festival Riley chats about listening to Brando’s tapes the divide between myth and reality and why the actor’s daughter walked out of the first screening Excerpts: You seem to be interested in an eclectic range of subjects — from boxing to the West Indian cricket team James Bond and now Brando How did this film come about The same production company that I have done those films with got in touch with me and asked if I would be interested in doing a film on Marlon Brando I like taking on new topics — I didn’t know much about boxing or West Indian cricket I don’t like Bond so I’m usually looking for a story within these subjects that I would like to tell You’ve got to please yourself too if you’re working on something for a year two years Songs his mother taught him Marlon Brando in the Broadway play A Streetcar Named Desire; and Riley With Marlon I had a blank canvas I knew that he was psychoanalytical and in therapy for most part of his life He recorded his conversations with himself and other people his creative exercises his self-hypnosis tapes even his answering machine tapes So I thought what if Brando could do a psychoanalysis of himself I read all the books about him but I started to get a little confused because of the different versions of him and I wondered who was the real guy in between Brando’s estate gave you all his audio recordings of conversations with himself over 200 hours of recordings and many times you were the first person to listen to them How did you decide the direction your film was going to take He was an obsessive examiner of his self and human behaviour or consciousness The archives were just being catalogued around the time the film was coming into being 10 years after he passed away in 2004 I don’t know if those tapes will ever be released to the public it was a big enough task to get them for the film Firstly I wanted to figure out his character who he was He constantly asked himself “Why is it we behave the way we do” and I was applying that question to him He was a very philosophical man he was in search of meaning all his life I’d listened to some of the tapes that had come out of the boxes and there was promise there I thought it would clear all the confusion I was going through if Marlon was the person delivering his own story which is what he had always wanted to do I took the title of the film from one of his many self-hypnosis tapes and the film was financed on the basis that the story would be in Marlon’s own words I did interview his friends and family but it was a backup plan only if the original tapes could not be used His personal assistants were most interesting — these were women who worked for him had relationships with him If the tapes hadn’t worked out I would have looked at the story through these women In the movie one gets a sense of watching Marlon find himself in a house full of mirrors There’s a constant collision between myth and reality What did making the film teach you about the phenomena of celebrity and myth-making All his life Marlon cherished his freedom He was a voyeur he liked to watch people in coffee shops and cigar shops in Manhattan see if he could figure them out in a few seconds The acting was always an extension of his search for truth He was always an idealist but he got to a point in his life where he thought “acting is a lie Life is a lie” He was constantly exploring myth versus truth how quickly we lose sight of reality how willingly we want to escape it In his career he liked to explore extremes to look at good and evil and know the boundaries of experience But the effects of fame deprived him of that When you tell people that Brando didn’t like being famous they turn around and say that’s just rubbish all actors like fame and if they don’t they’re in the wrong profession I don’t think that should be the case; we don’t treat artists that way do we Eventually Marlon was overcome by the myth of Brando And in the film I look at how he went to regressive hypnotherapy to find his childlike self the little boy (he was) and to parent himself before the wolves came in It’s a post mortem from beyond the grave Was there anything you decided to leave out of the film Well there was stuff where he was with women and he’d put the recorder on because he thought it would be fun; they knew he was recording them There was nothing really off-limits with Marlon because he went to all sorts of places dark places too There was one love affair he had with an actor he met on the set of Candy (1968) When I was speaking to people asking who was Marlon’s true love her name Jill Banner kept popping up I investigated her story a bit more: they had a tempestuous relationship but Marlon pushed her away completely They reconciled later but she died in a car accident two weeks after that How has Brando’s family reacted to the film When I showed Rebecca Marlon’s daughter the film she walked out after an hour I was very anxious but she came back to tell me that it was overwhelming to see her father like that he was too present for her at that moment But she’s been very supportive of the documentary and has attended many screenings since For all the latest Entertainment News download Indian Express App More Top
