Trump Pushes U.N.: ‘We Are Not Seeing the Results’

The tension has gone both ways. Last month, the United Nations human rights chief chastised Mr. Trump for his repeated attacks on the news media, saying that they could incite violence and set a bad example for other countries.At a news conference at the French mission on Monday, Jean-Yves Le Drian, France’s foreign minister, described the context in which Mr. Trump arrived. “There’s a worrying degradation of the international environment,” he said. “Never since the end of the Cold War have dissensions, tensions, the level of conflict been so high in a world that is more interdependent than ever.”“And what is worse is despite globalization, cooperation has become less easy with increasing questioning of the roles of the multilateral game and with a temptation of withdrawal out of fear or selfishness,” Mr. Le Drian added.No mention was made during Mr. Trump’s opening appearance on Monday of the global crises that the United Nations has rung alarm bells about: attacks on the Rohingya minority in Myanmar, climate change, the nuclear threat in North Korea, and a record 65 million people displaced from their homes.PhotoA “family photo” during the United Nations meeting on Monday.Credit Doug Mills/The New York TimesMr. Trump’s main message to the visiting heads of state and government will come on Tuesday when he addresses the opening session of the United Nations General Assembly. Aides have said he will stress “sovereignty and accountability,” a contrast to his predecessors who used the annual occasion to rally joint action on issues like terrorism, weapons proliferation and climate change.Mr. […]

Desperation Mounts in Caribbean Islands: ‘All the Food Is Gone’

Residents of St. Martin, and elsewhere in the region, spoke about a general disintegration of law and order as survivors struggled in the face of severe food and water shortages, and the absence of electricity and phone service.As reports of increasing desperation continued to emerge from the region over the weekend, governments in Britain, France and the Netherlands, which oversee territories in the region, stepped up their response. They defended themselves against criticism that their reaction had been too slow, and insufficient. Both the French and Dutch governments said they were sending in extra troops to restore order, along with the aid that was being airlifted into the region.After an emergency meeting with his government on Sunday, President Emmanuel Macron of France said he would travel on Tuesday to St. Martin, an overseas French territory. Mr. Macron also announced late on Saturday that he would double France’s troop deployment to the region, to 2,200 from 1,100; officials say the increase is in part a response to the mayhem on St. Martin.The Dutch territorial side of the island has also experienced widespread security problems at shops.

Death Toll Climbs, and Relief Efforts Stall, as Caribbean Braces for Hurricane Jose

It could be days before rescue workers can fully assess the extent of the aid needed — and losses inflicted — by both storms.“That is not only stopping all of the work we began in the last few days,” Mr. Hamoir said, referring to Hurricane Jose. “It means we will have to start everything over again in three days.”Across a band of the Caribbean islands, aid workers had been racing to get supplies to populations stripped of practically everything. By early Saturday, in a rare bit of good news, it looked as if some of the hardest hit islands, like Antigua and Barbuda, would avoid the worst of Jose, as the storm’s course looked set to bypass them.The United States Virgin Islands and British Virgin Islands, along with Antigua, dropped their hurricane warnings to tropical storm watches, while Barbuda and Anguilla downgraded their warnings by Saturday afternoon.St. Martin and St. Barthélemy, however, two of the islands ravaged by Irma, were still under a hurricane watch.The full damage from Irma has not yet been calculated, but the early estimates are grim: The islands of St. Martin and St. Barthélemy, were approximately 80 to 90 percent destroyed; for Antigua, Barbuda and Anguilla, the figures are similar.In Cuba, Hurricane Irma caused widespread damage on Friday night when the eye of the storm passed directly north of the provinces of Camagüey and Ciego de Ávila in the central part of the island. The authorities have not yet made a substantive announcement about the extent of the damage to the area, where more than 50 hotels and resorts generate significant revenue for a nation that is short of cash.Continue reading the main storyDamage to these resorts, along with heavy agricultural losses and reconstruction costs elsewhere in the country, will be a major economic strain on the country.Residents woke up Saturday morning to see whole houses destroyed, and roofs ripped off warehouses. The few images trickling in, however, suggest that the destruction in Cuba is not as cataclysmic as it is on islands elsewhere in the Caribbean.The island of Guadeloupe, which was spared by Hurricane Irma, has become a staging ground for aid efforts, with hundreds of largely French rescue workers using it as an operational hub.The French relief operation has been one of starts and, for now, stops, but efforts to help those on the British Virgin Islands have only just begun.

Devastation in the Caribbean as Hurricane Irma Heads Toward Miami

How is it possible, they wanted to know, that a hurricane that had passed at a safe distance and hardly claimed a shingle could leave so many in the dark?Continue reading the main storyPuerto Rico’s plunge into darkness has been long coming. In July, the huge, government-owned power authority defaulted on a deal to restructure $9 billion in debt, effectively declaring bankruptcy.It has neither modernized nor kept up with maintenance. Trees have gone untrimmed, poles unattended. (The electric company did not respond to repeated requests for comment.)Gov. Ricardo A. Rosselló said the authorities could not estimate how long it would take to get the power back until officials were able to survey the damage.Thursday afternoon he said service had been restored to 144,000 households — which still left nearly a million out.Still, he said, things could have been much worse.“We would like to start out thanking the almighty,” Mr. Rosselló said. “Our prayers were answered.”PhotoResidents in Port St. Lucie, Fla., prepared for Hurricane Irma’s approach at Home Depot.Credit Jason Henry for The New York TimesOn other islands, the reckoning was far more stark.On St. Martin, a part-French, part-Dutch possession where at least four people died as a result of the storm, aerial footage taken by the military showed streets inundated with water and homes devastated by winds.

Live Briefing: Hurricane Irma Reaches Puerto Rico: ‘There Is Nothing Like This’

VideoHurricane Irma Pummels CaribbeanOne of the strongest Atlantic storms ever recorded has already caused damage on several islands.By CAMILLA SCHICK and ROBIN LINDSAY on Publish Date September 6, 2017.Photo by Rinsy Xieng/RCI Guadeloupe, via Agence France-Presse — Getty Images.Watch in Times Video »embed • Hurricane Irma, one of the strongest storms ever recorded in the Atlantic, hit the eastern Caribbean on Wednesday with winds of up to 185 miles an hour.• The Category 5 storm leveled Barbuda, damaging 95 percent of its buildings and leaving the island “barely habitable.” It has since begun lashing Puerto Rico and is also threatening havoc and destruction in the Virgin Islands, the Dominican Republic, Haiti and Cuba. The Bahamas and the Turks and Caicos Islands will also be at risk on Thursday.• With two confirmed deaths in the French Caribbean, President Emmanuel Macron of France said there would be “victims to lament.” There was also at least one death in Anguilla, a British territory; one in the island nation of Antigua and Barbuda; and one in Puerto Rico, bringing the total to five so far.• President Trump declared a state of emergency in Florida, Puerto Rico and the United States Virgin Islands. The storm is expected to reach Florida on Sunday, potentially causing catastrophic flooding.SEVERITY Category 5 4 3 2 1 Tropical storm• Sign up for the Morning Briefing for hurricane news and a daily look at what you need to know to begin your day.‘Barbuda is literally rubble,’ but Antigua is spared.Early on Wednesday, Prime Minister Gaston Browne of Antigua and Barbuda said his nation had been spared the worst of the hurricane, declaring in a statement, “The essential point is that our main infrastructure has stood up and our country can resume normal life within hours.” He went so far as to add, “I dare to say that no other country in the Caribbean would have been as well prepared as we were.”This turned out to be stunningly inaccurate: While the damage in Antigua was not as severe as expected, Mr. Browne announced in the afternoon that 95 percent of all structures on its sister island, Barbuda, had been damaged or destroyed, rendering the island “barely habitable.” A telecommunications tower was broken in two. At least one person, an infant, was killed.Barbuda, home to about 1,600 people (3 percent of the country’s population), “is literally rubble,” the prime minister told ABS TV/Radio Antigua.VideoDevastation in BarbudaThe prime minister of Antigua and Barbuda, Gaston Browne, described how the island of Barbuda was nearly leveled by Hurricane Irma.By ABS TELEVISION ANTIGUA on Publish Date September 6, 2017..In his initial statement Wednesday morning, Mr. Browne suggested he had been receiving reports from Barbuda. But he later clarified that, in fact, the storm had knocked out all official communication systems on the island, rendering officials there unreachable after the storm. As a result, it was not until the afternoon, when the prime minister surveyed Barbuda from the air, that the extent of the devastation became clear.“What I saw was heart-wrenching — I mean, absolutely devastating,” Mr […]
