Company chairman Liang Hua said last week that Hongmeng was mainly developed for internet of things (IoT) devices, according to TechNode, and Huawei hasn’t decided if it’ll be applied as a phone OS.We got the first rumblings that Huawei trademarked Hongmeng in China after Google locked the company out of its Android updates in May, following the US government blacklisting Huawei networking gear and President Donald Trump signing an executive order effectively banning it. Google resumed work with Huawei after the US eased restrictions.Huawei didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.First published at 2:15 a.m. PT.Updated at 2:50 a.m. PT: Adds more detail. 1:23 CNET Apps Today Phones Tech Industry 40 Photos Now playing: Watch this: Huawei’s homegrown OS faces a steep uphill climb Share your voice Tags 0 Post a comment The Hongmeng OS isn’t for phones, Huawei’s senior vice president told reporters. Angela Lang/CNET Huawei reportedly wants to keep using Google’s Android operating system in its phones instead of jumping to its self-developed Hongmeng system. Company senior vice president Catherine Chen told reporters in Brussels on Thursday that the Hongmeng OS isn’t even designed for phones, according to Chinese state news agency Xinhua.Chen apparently said Hongmeng is for industrial use, noting that it contains far fewer lines of code than a phone OS, and has much lower latency than a phone, meaning it can process a very high volume of data messages with little delay.

Heroin packets in a Colombo flat. File PhotoDuring recent investigations by Sri Lanka’s enforcement agencies, so far 6 Bangladeshis have been found involved in drug smuggling there. On 31 December the Sri Lankan police had mentioned three Bangladeshis were involved in drug trafficking, including one woman. They are being held in custody in Colombo.Three more Bangladeshis have now been named as part of the drug smuggling scam. All three of them are women.The Sri Lankan authorities have informed Bangladesh than these Bangladeshi nationals have been travelling between Dhaka, Colombo and Kuala Lumpur. Sri Lanka’s law enforcement agencies believe that more Bangladeshis are likely to be involved in this smuggling.According to Colombo’s immigration authorities, the three Bangladeshi women are Shaheena Akhter, Rehana Akhter and Tania.Shaheena Akhter has visited Colombo at least 10 times between 30 March 2017 and 16 December 2018. She sometimes travelled from Kuala Lumpur to Colombo and then back to Dhaka or, at times, back to Kuala Lumpur.Or sometimes it was from Dhaka to Colombo and back to Dhaka. During those 19 moths she basically travelled around these three destinations by either Sri Lankan Airlines or Malinda Air.The Sri Lankan authorities informed the Bangladesh high commission in Colombo that Shaheena Akhter was in regular contact over phone with a Bangladeshi in Australia. She is not in Sri Lanka at present and they do not know the present whereabouts of the other two women.Sri Lanka’s largest drug haul in the country’s recent history was last month, on 31 December. Two Bangladeshis were caught and arrested in the haul – Mohammed Jamaluddin of Bogura and Dewan Rafiul Islam of Joypurhat. When caught during the operation by the Sri Lankan police in Mount Lavinia in the suburbs of Colombo, they had 272 kgs of heroin and 5 kgs of cocaine in their possession, amounting to around 1.52 billion taka in worth. The flat where the huge drug haul was recovered had been rented for a year by Shaheena Akhter in January 2018.Previously, on 15 December last year, a Bangladeshi woman named Surjomoni had been arrested with 32 kgs of heroin from the same area in Colombo’s suburbs.In the meantime, Sri Lanka’s Special Task Force (STF) interrogated Rafiul Islam on 3 January in presence of a Bangladeshi diplomat.Before being caught in Sri Lanka, on 12 August 2017 Jamaluddin had been arrested in Bangladesh by Bogura district police detective branch (DB) in the town’s Rupkatha Housing area with 30 yaba tablets. He was charged under the narcotics control act and the case remains under trial in the Bogura court.After Prothom Alo published news on 2 January of Jamaluddin’s arrest in Colombo, police searched his house in Bogura.The Bangladeshi woman in Sri Lankan policy custody had told them during interrogations that she could only understand Bangla. However, it was later discovered she also could speak in English and Singhalese.Meanwhile in Bangladesh, the Foreign Ministry has called for an inter-ministerial meeting on Sunday to discuss what is to be done about the involvement of Bangladeshis in Sri Lankan drug trafficking.
Sri Lankan Special Task Force (STF) personnel gesture outside a house during a raid — after a suicide blast had killed police searching the property — in the Orugodawatta area of the capital Colombo on 21 April, 2019, following a series of blasts in churches and hotels. Photo: AFPSeven suicide bombers took part in the devastating attacks on churches and luxury hotels in Sri Lanka that killed 290 people and wounded more than 500, a senior investigator said on Monday.Two of the suicide bombers blew themselves up at the luxury Shangri-La Hotel on Colombo’s seafront, said Ariyananda Welianga, a senior official at the government’s forensic division. The others targeted three churches and two other hotels.A fourth hotel and a house in a suburb of the capital Colombo were also targeted, but it was not immediately known how the attacks were carried out.”Still the investigations are going on,” Welianga said.There was no claim of responsibility for the Easter Sunday attacks, which mainly took place during church services or at hotel breakfast buffets.”Guests who had come for breakfast were lying on the floor, blood all over,” an employee at Kingsbury Hotel, one of those targeted, told Reuters.”We just picked up everyone, dead or alive and evacuated them.”Four of the bombs went off at roughly the same time, at 8.45 a.m., with two others coming within 20 minutes. The explosions at the fourth hotel and the house were in the afternoon.Sri Lankans accounted for the bulk of the dead and wounded although government officials said 32 foreigners were killed, including British, U.S., Turkish, Indian, Chinese, Danish, Dutch and Portuguese nationals.President Maithripala Sirisena, who was abroad when the attacks happened, had called a meeting of the National Security Council on Monday, a government source said. Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe would attend the meeting, the source said.The U.S. State Department said in a travel advisory “terrorist groups” were continuing to plot possible attacks in Sri Lanka and targets could included tourist spots, transport hubs, shopping malls, hotels, places of worship, airports and other public areas.The government announced a curfew in Colombo from 8 p.m. until 4 a.m. A Sunday night curfew was lifted in the morning.The Sri Lankan military, who were clearing the route from Colombo airport late on Sunday in preparation for Sirisena’s return, found a crude bomb near the departure gate, an air force spokesman said.They destroyed the device in a controlled explosion.There were fears the attacks could spark a renewal of communal violence, with police also reporting late on Sunday there had been a petrol bomb attack on a mosque in the northwest and arson attacks on two shops owned by Muslims in the west.Buddhist-majority Sri Lanka was at war for decades with ethnic minority Tamil separatists but violence had largely ended since the government victory in the civil war, 10 years ago.Sri Lanka’s 22 million people include Christian, Muslim and Hindu minority populations.The explosion at the house in the Colombo suburb occurred when security forces raided a house there on Sunday afternoon, several hours after the attack. Police reported an explosion at the house and said three officers were killed.Police said on Monday 24 people had been arrested, all of whom were Sri Lankan.SOCIAL MEDIA BLOCKEDTraffic was uncharacteristically thin in normally bustling Colombo after the island-wide curfew was lifted.Soldiers with automatic weapons stood guard outside major hotels and the World Trade Centre in the business district, where the four hotels were targeted, a Reuters witness said.Scores of people who were stranded overnight at the main airport began making their way home as restrictions were lifted.The government also blocked access to social media and messaging sites, including Facebook and WhatsApp, making information hard to gather.A British mother and son eating breakfast at the luxury Shangri-La hotel were among those killed, British media reported.An Australian survivor, identified only as Sam, told Australia’s 3AW radio the hotel was a scene of “absolute carnage”.He said he and a travel partner were also having breakfast at the Shangri-La when two blasts went off. He said he had seen two men wearing backpacks seconds before the blasts.”There were people screaming and dead bodies all around,” he said. “Kids crying, kids on the ground, I don’t know if they were dead or not, just crazy.”There were similar scenes of carnage at two churches in or near Colombo, and a third church in the northeast town of Batticaloa, where worshippers had gathered for Easter Sunday services. Pictures from the scene showed bodies on the ground and blood-spattered pews and statues.Dozens were killed in one of the blasts at the Gothic-style St. Sebastian church in Katuwapitiya, north of Colombo. Police said they suspected that blast was a suicide attack.DOMESTIC FEUDWickremesinghe acknowledged on Sunday that the government had some prior information about possible attacks on churches involving a little-known Islamist group but said ministers had not been told.The apparent lapse could feed into a feud between the prime minister and the president.Sirisena fired the premier last year and installed opposition strongman Mahinda Rajapaksa in his stead. Weeks later, he was forced to re-instate Wickremesinghe because of pressure from the Supreme Court but their relationship is still fraught as a presidential election nears.
