By Nick Mulvenney ROSA KHUTOR, Russia, Feb 22 (Reuters) - Julia Dujmovits wants to party for a month and Benjamin Karl is hoping for a holiday in Egypt after they broke Austria's Extreme Park medal drought at the Sochi Olympics on Saturday. Dujmovits won a surprise gold medal to become the first Olympic champion in the snowboard parallel slalom, while Karl took the bronze in the men's event to add to the silver he won in giant slalom four years ago. Austria's strengths lie in more traditional Winter sports but leaving Sochi without a medal in snowboarding or freestyle skiing would have been quite a comedown after they won three in Vancouver four years ago. It was redemption of a sorts for both boarders after they disappointed in the parallel giant slalom on Wednesday - Karl upset in the first knockout round and Dujmovits failing to get through qualifying.

US lifting aid freeze to Egypt

Added: 23.04.2014 23:26 | 0 views | 0 comments


The United States is partially lifting its freeze on funding to Egypt, with plans to deliver 10 Apache helicopters and release some $650 million in military aid this year, officials said. Despite concerns about Egypt's failure to embrace democratic reforms following the July ouster of president Mohamed Morsi, the US government will go ahead with easing its funding freeze, officials said. After news of the Apache aircraft was released late Tuesday, State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki confirmed Wednesday the US administration would also seek Congress' approval to release some $650 million out of a planned $1.5 billion in aid for Egypt in the fiscal year 2014. The funds would be primarily used for programs such as counterterrorism, border security and non-proliferation, Psaki said, including in the volatile Sinai peninsula where Egyptian authorities are trying to crack down on militant groups.
