LONDON Nike Air Presto Premium , Oct. 13 (Xinhua) -- British police have confiscated 250,000 pounds (about 401,713 U.S. dollars) of suspected funds for the Islamic State (IS), Britain's anti-terror authorities said Monday.

Most of the money was seized from travelers departing from Manchester Airport to Turkey, who were suspected of supplying cash for militia fighters in Syria and Iraq.

"Terrorists need money to fight. At the Turkish border with Syria there are shops where you can buy guns, boots Nike Air Presto Mens , rations and if you are going out there to fight you need money and you want equipment," said Tony Mole, detective chief superintendent of the Greater Manchester Police (GMP).

"We take that cash away from people, not only stopping them from buying weapons and funding terror organizations which are a threat to the UK and an international threat but we also disrupt that person," added Mole, who is also head of the North West Counter Terrorism Unit (NWCTU).

Some of the confiscated cash was spotted in the travelers' luggage or hidden under their clothes.

According to British anti-terror laws Nike Air Presto Womens , police have the power to seize the suspect cash.

Most passengers carrying the cash were unable to give a satisfactory explanation, according to the GMP.

The confiscated cash was seized between April 2013 and April this year, while details for the rest of Britain were not available yet.

CANBERRA, June 8 (Xinhua) -- Fructose, the type of sugar found in fruits, honey and some vegetables Nike Air Presto , has been found to be a healthier option compared to everyday "table sugars" such as sucrose and glucose, according to Australian researchers.

In a study published recently in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, researchers from the University of Canberra discovered that blood glucose levels and insulin levels were found to be lower after test subjects consumed fructose compared to other sugars.

Speaking to Xinhua on Thursday, co-author Dr Kerry Mills said fructose must be processed by ones liver before it contributes to blood sugar levels, meaning the risk of developing diabetes is lower compared to when someone consumes sugar in other forms.

Fructose has a different chemical structure to other sugars like glucose and sucrose, so what has to happen is that fructose needs to be converted into glucose before it can enter the bloodstream Cheap Air Presto , she said.

That takes time, so thats why the release of sugar from fructose into the blood is much slower and doesnt cause the sudden spike in blood sugar levels like when you consume sucrose of glucose.

In a statement released accompanying the study, Mills said a spike in blood sugar levels was a major risk factor for diabetes.

Because the conversion (of fructose) takes time, its impossible for the body to receive the near-instant sugar hit we get from sucrose or glucose. This reduces blood glucose levels, which is particularly important for people with diabetes, who must monitor and control these levels Air Presto Sale ," she said.

Our study of long-term effects of swapping types of sugar also found a reduction in blood glucose levels, although the difference wasnt as dramatic over time.

While the study seems to have uncovered the healthier option in terms of sugar intake, Mills stressed that fructose should not be championed as a health food of sorts.

High sugar intakes can lead to health problems and everyone should be trying to cut out sweet treats. But if sugar consumption cant be avoided, it is probably better to choose products with fructose over other types of sugar, she said.

BEIJING, Jan. 7 (Xinhua) -- China's foreign exchange reserves rose for the 11th month in a row to 3.14 trillion U.S. dollars at the end of December, data from the central bank showed Sunday.

This marked the highest level since September 2016, according to the People's Bank of China.

The reserves gained 20.7 billion dollars from a month earlier, faster than the market forecast, which estimated the reserves to stand at 3.13 trillion dollars.

The State Administration of Foreign Exchange (SAFE) attributed the continued increase to stronger non-dollar denominated currencies and higher asset prices Air Presto Extreme , while cross-border capital flows and transactions remained stable.

In January, the forex reserves fell below 3 trillion dollars, but as the economy is on firmer footing and the yuan continues to stabilize, the stockpile has increased steadily since February.

The country's steady economic growth and improving momentum have kept cross-border capital flows more stable and balanced, the SAFE said on its website. The sound international balance of payments data supported the continued rebound in forex reserves.

Looking ahead, the forex regulator said given the increasing stability and resilience of the economy Air Presto Premium , as well as further reform in the financial markets, China will keep its forex reserves and international balance of payments balanced and stable in 2018.

The country's economy grew 6.9 percent year on year in the first three quarters of 2017, above the government's annual target of around 6.5 percent.

Sunday's data also showed the country has kept its gold reserves unchanged from the year-start level of 59.24 million ounces in December, equivalent to 76.47 billion dollars.
