Village burned to the ground after ‘man posts rude comment about Mohammed on Facebook’A mob of up to 20,000 is reported to have gathered


A mob of up to 20,000 Muslims burned down a Hindu village in Bangladesh after rumours spread that a resident had insulted Prophet Mohammed on Facebook.

A mob burned down 30 houses in Tharkurbari village after the supposed post by a young man from the Hindu minority community.
Protesters began looting homes, and several people were shot, the Dhaka Tribune reported.
Reports suggest that at least one person died and five more were seriously injured in the attacks on the village about 200 miles from Dhaka.

‘Bangladesh authorities have assured him that compensation will be paid to affected persons to rebuild their houses and adequate security will be provided.’

Three powerful earthquakes hit Japan, Costa Rica and Iran  within hours of each other

A 5.8-magnitude earthquake struck off the coast of Japan, hours after a devastating quake in Iran left 320 dead.

The tremor rumbled south-east of the city of Kamaish, on the country’s Pacific coast, according to the US Geological Survey.

The quake happened six miles beneath the Earth’s surface at around 10.24pm, with the epicentre recorded 180 miles off the coast of Japan, scientists have said.
It is unclear whether the quake has caused any impact on land.
It came just hours after the huge 7.3 magnitude earthquake near the Iran/Iraq border, with the death toll currently at 320 and almost 2,000 others reportedly injured.
It was felt as far away as Turkey, Kuwait and the United Arab Emirates.
The worst of the damage appeared to be in Iran’s western Kermanshah province, which sits in the Zagros Mountains that divide Iran and Iraq.
Residents in the rural area rely mainly on farming to make a living.
Iranian social media and news agencies showed images and videos of people fleeing their homes into the night. Some 50 aftershocks followed.
Magnitude 7 earthquakes on their own are capable of widespread, heavy damage.

Meanwhile Costa Rica was also rocked by a strong 6.5 magnitude quake which knocked out power lines and has threatened a risk of rockslide.
People were said to have been seen rushing outside in panic overnight as items were knocked from shelves in the disturbance.
According to the country’s Public Safety Ministry, there were so far reports of two serious injuries as a result of the earthquake there.
New Zealand – where earthquakes along the Indo-australian and Pacific tectonic plates occur regularly – was also hit by a quake over the weekend.

It shook the country just hours before it is due to mark the year anniversary of a devastating 7.8 tremor that struck the seaside town of Kaikoura.
The 4.8 magnitute earthquake hit in Wellington on Sunday morning, with more than 11,000 people reporting they had felt it.
Many described it as an unfortunate reminder of the Kaikoura disaster.

Donald Trump has excelled himself with this tweet on North KoreaLeader of the free world (Picture: AP)


Donald Trump has raised the level of diplomatic discussion yet again, referring to North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un as ‘short and fat’. 

In a tweet that must be seen to be believed, he wrote: ‘Why would Kim Jong-un insult me by calling me “old,” when I would NEVER call him “short and fat?”

‘Oh well, I try so hard to be his friend – and maybe someday that will happen!’
If you got confused and thought you were back in primary school for a moment, sorry, no, this is actually happening.

He said it after North Korea called Trump’s speech in South Korea ‘reckless remarks by an old lunatic.’

Trump had earlier warned North Korea: ‘Do not underestimate us. And do not try us. … The weapons you’re acquiring are not making you safer, they are putting your regime in grave danger.
‘Every step you take down this dark path increases the peril you face.’

But asked in Vietnam if it was true that the two countries could ever be friends, he said: ‘Certainly, it is something that could happen.

‘I don’t know that it will, but it would be very, very nice if it did.’
In the same Twitter session, taking advantage of the new 280 character limit, Trump hit out at the ‘haters and fools’ who criticise his policies.

‘When will all the haters and fools out there realise that having a good relationship with Russia is a good thing, not a bad thing,’ he said.

‘There (sic) always playing politics – bad for our country. I want to solve North Korea, Syria, Ukraine, terrorism, and Russia can greatly help!’

At least six dead and 150 injured as 7.3 magnitude earthquake hits IraqThe US Geological Survey said: ‘significant casualties and damage are likely’. (Picture: Feriq Ferec/Anadolu Agency/Getty Images)


At least six people have reportedly died and around 150 have been injured following a major earthquake in parts of Iraq this evening.

The 7.3 magnitude earthquake struck northeastern Iraq and western Iran, according to an initial assessment reported by Iranian state television.

Health officials said most of the wounded were in Darbandikhan, 75 kilometres (47 miles) east of the major city of Sulaimaniyah in the semi-autonomous Kurdistan region.

The district’s main hospital was severely damaged and had no power, Kurdistan Regional Government’s Health Minister Rekawt Hama Rasheed said.
The injured are being taken to Sulaimaniyah for treatment.

So far, four people have been confirmed dead in Darbandikhan and another two in Kalar – 45 miles away.

The US Geological Survey said: ‘significant casualties and damage are likely’.
The tremors were felt across the Middle East, including Israel and Turkey.

The quake struck the mountainous area of Sulaimaniyah province at around 9.18 pm (6.18pm GMT) at a depth of 21 miles, the monitor said.

In the province of Sulaimaniyah, located in Iraq’s Kurdistan region, residents ran out onto the streets at the time of the quake and some minor property damage was recorded.

Majida Ameer, who ran out of her building in the capital’s Salihiya district with her three children, said: ‘I was sitting with my kids having dinner and suddenly the building was just dancing in the air.
‘I thought at first that it was a huge bomb. But then I heard everyone around me screaming “Earthquake!”.’

Breathtaking photos showing the agony and ecstasy of the end of the First World War have been brought to life in colour for the first time.

Jubilant crowds in New York can be seen celebrating the allied forces’ victory and joyful soldiers make the long journey home from the front lines.

But these photos stand in stark contrast to ones depicting coffins of fallen British troops being solemnly carried through the streets of London.

Another photo reveals nuns peacefully laying wreaths in a field of mass graves.
The images were colourised by Cardiff based electrician, Royston Leonard, 55, who painstakingly brought them into the 21st century.

He said: ‘The First World War was the first-time machines took over the battlefield, guns got massive with both sides raining down shells by the day.
‘It made it hell for troops on the ground to the point where the men just had no hope at all, it was just madness.

‘To this day there are still parts of France that are too dangerous to enter, poisoned from four years of total war.’

Royston also discussed how long the project of colourising the photos took him as well as his personal relationship with World War One.
‘The project has taken me months to do and many, many hours to complete, he said.

‘My grandfather fought in the war and I often asked my father about him, my dad said that all he ever told him was that they moved 100 yards in four years.

‘He had the firing pin from his machine gun on the shelf over the fire place in his front room until the day he died.

‘To this day it is still such a shame that there was such a total waste of life and what these men had to endure in the face of hell.’

The photos have been brought to life in colour for the first time to coincide with the 99th Armistice Day, as Britain remembers those who lost their lives in the conflict.

More revelations suggest Russia interfered in UK's Brexit vote

A fresh wave of reports strongly imply that Russia influenced the UK’s decision to leave the European Union.

Amid speculation that Russia may have meddled in the 2016 referendum vote, multimillionaire Brexit donor Arron Banks wrote to Britain’s Electoral Commission on Thursday to imply he was the subject of a politically motivated investigation.

Banks said politicians who support remaining in the EU are fuelling claims Russia may have meddled in the referendum and that voters were misled by a widely publicised bus during the campaign emblazoned with a slogan saying Britain was sending 350 million pounds ($458 million) a week to the EU.

The Electoral Commission previously said it was looking at whether a company called Better for the Country Limited (BFTCL) – of which Banks was a director – was the true source of donations made to campaigners.

BFTCL was not registered as a permitted participant in the referendum but five registered campaigning groups reported receiving donations from it totalling 2.4 million pounds, the Commission said.

Banks, who was pictured with Donald Trump and leading Brexiteer Nigel Farage outside a gilded elevator soon after Trump’€™s 2016 U.S. presidential election victory, was a registered permitted participant and gave three non-commercial loans to Leave.EU, totalling 6 million pounds.

The Commission said in April it was investigating Leave.EU’s funding as well as looking at whether its spending return was complete.

In his letter, Banks said his campaign hired an accountant and an auditor, a lawyer oversaw all spending, and its returns were submitted after discussions with the election watchdog.

Banks questioned why only his campaign group was being singled out for investigation and alleged all the commissioners at election watchdog support staying in the EU.

‘The Commissioners are fully signed up “Remainers”,’ he said in the letter. ‘It really is quite incredible that an organisation that exists to ensure fair play in elections should be packed full of ex-MPs and ex-council leaders a€“ jobs for the political boys!’

The Electoral Commission, which is already looking at whether Banks’ Leave.EU group received any impermissible donations, opened a new investigation last week into whether Banks was the true source of loans to a campaigner.

The announcement of the Electoral Commission investigation came after a lawmaker from the opposition Labour Party asked the government to look into reports by advocacy group Open Democracy that the origin of some campaign funds was unclear.

On October 23, Labour MP Ben Bradshaw asked Theresa May: ‘have the UK Government or their agencies been asked for help or information by the American congressional team or U.S. special counsel Robert Mueller, who are investigating alleged Russian subversion of the U.S. presidential election?’

May dismissed the question, though Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson later told Labour’s Chris Bryant that he was not aware of the Kremlin meddling in the Brexit vote.

Bradshaw’s question came days after researchers from City, University of London revealed that an army of 13,500 Twitter bots posted almost 65,000 Brexit-related messages in just one month.

Researchers Dr Marco Bastos and Dr Dan Mercea say the Twitter bots shared messages automatically as a ‘supervised network of zombie agents’ and displayed a ‘clear slant towards the leave campaign’.

The Electoral Commission, which has the power to impose fines and other sanctions if it finds rules were broken, said it has received Banks’ letter and will respond.

Lady Collapses & Dies While Leading Praise & Worship In Pentecostal Church - Delta State

A member of a Pentecostal church along Cemetery Road in Sapele, Delta State, Ese Kalu, collapsed and died while leading praise and worship during church service, Vangaurd reports.

The incident reportedly happened during a mid-week service at the Church premises on Tuesday night. It was gathered that the deceased, a female petty trader, was said to have attended church services that evening, full of life but suddenly fell down, clutching her chest.

A lady who claimed to be the late woman’s relative told the newspaper that she had no medical history. She said;

“Ese went to church around 7pm. she was singing when she suddenly stopped and clutched her chest, before going down. “Church members who took her to the hospital came back crying, they said she died before they could get to the clinic.”

What could have been the problem? Is her time up? We all tend to dismiss this as God's time. Is it?
 
 

Robert Mugabe's son 'pours champagne over £45,000 watch' in Snapchat videoChatunga Bellarmine Mugabe poses on the right (Picture: Facebook)


Robert Mugabe’s son has posted a video on Snapchat apparently showing himself pouring champagne on a £45,000 watch.
Chatunga Bellarmine Mugabe splashed the alcohol on the timepiece while partying in a nightclub in Sandton, South Africa, with his brother Robert Jr.

The video apparently showed him pouring Armand de Brignac Ace Of Spades gold champagne, which costs £200, on his watch.
It is believed Chatunga had claimed earlier on Snapchat he was able to afford the timepiece because his ‘daddy run the whole country’, News 24 reported.

Almost 75% of people in Zimbabwe are living below the poverty line so the incident did not go down well with people who saw the video online.
A Twitter user called Mugabe’s sons ‘spoiled and rotten brats’.
Another person added: ‘Mugabe’s son bragging about wearing $60 000 jewellery yet majority suffering?’

Chatunga has a reputation for partying in South Africa along with his brother Robert Jr, who both live there.
Their mother Grace Mugabe allegedly assaulted model Gabriella Engels, 20, earlier this year when she went out looking for her sons after they had gone missing on a night out.
She eventually used her diplomatic immunity to avoid facing charges.
Despite the incident Mrs Mugabe is likely to be the next leader of Zimbabwe after her husband Robert, 93, recently dismissed deputy Emmerson Mnangagwa.

A man who was stopped by police during a drunken argument with another man was found with a 14-inch snake in his trousers. 

Police said they were called to a quiet neighbourhood in Darmstadt, Germany, following reports of disturbance in the street between two men.

When they searched them, officers noticed ‘a significant bulge’ in one of their trousers.

The man in question, 19, then told officers he had a snake in his pants and pulled out a 14-inch (36cm) royal python.

He was taken to a police cell to sober up and the snake was put in a box.
Officers said they are now looking for the reptile’s owner and are examining whether the man may have violated animal welfare laws.

According to a police report, the snake may belong to one of the 19-year-old’s family members.


The Mugabes, Robert and Grace: war veterans plan to resist Mugabe’s plan
 
The head of Zimbabwe’s influential war veterans association, Chris Mutsvangwa,said the plan of President Robert Mugabe to instal his wife, Grace as vice president, will be resisted.

“This is a coup by marriage certificate ….and it will be resisted,” he told Reuters.
Grace, who was a typist in Mugabe’s office before she became Mugabe’s wife, is likely to be installed the country’s vice-president when the ruling ZANU-PF holds its national convention next month.

Mutsvangwa ruled out trying to remove Mugabe by force and said war veterans, who had publicly backed the sacked Vice-President Emmerson Mnangagwa and broke ranks with the president last year, would form a broad front with the opposition in elections next year.

“We don’t want to abuse the military to resolve a political problem. We don’t want them to become the arbiter of political power,” Mutsvangwa said.

Mnangagwa has not been seen in public since his dismissal from government but his ally Mutsvangwa said he was “safe and beyond the reach of the assassins”.

Mugabe himself said on Wednesday the route to leadership was long and full of “pitfalls and death”, as he accused his fired deputy and former protege of showing impatience in his bid to succeed him.

Addressing supporters at the headquarters of his ZANU-PF party in Harare, 93-year-old Mugabe accused Emmerson Mnangagwa of consulting witchdoctors and prophets as part of a campaign to secure the presidency.

Mnangagwa, who was sacked by Mugabe on Monday and expelled from the ruling Zanu-PF party on Wednesday, said he had fled Zimbabwe because of death threats and was safe.

“My sudden departure was caused by incessant threats on my person, life and family by those who have attempted before through various forms of elimination including poisoning,” he said in a statement on Wednesday.

Mutsvangwa, said that Mnangagwa, 75, would travel to Johannesburg in neighbouring South Africa “very soon”.

Mugabe said Mnangagwa, nicknamed “Crocodile”, had made the same mistakes as Joice Mujuru, who was the president’s deputy for 10 years until she was fired in 2014.

“You should not try to say because the journey is long, then I should take a short cut to arrive quickly. The road has lions. There are pitfalls. There is death, beware,” he said.

“There is no short cut to being the leader of the people. Just as there was no short cut to our independence.”

ZANU-PF would move to discipline Mnangagwa’s “co-conspirators”, Mugabe added.


Magu: $2.9b recovered

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Wednesday in Austria said it recovered loots totalling N738.9 billion or $2.9 billion between May, 2015 and Oct. 20, 2017.

Its Acting Chairman, Mr Ibrahim Magu, stated this at the ongoing 7th Session of the Conference of the States Parties to the United Nations Convention Against Corruption holding in Vienna.

Spokesman of the commission, Mr Wilson Uwujaren, gave account of Magu’s engagement in a statement in Abuja on Wednesday.

In a presentation titled: “International Cooperation in Relation to Tecnical Assistance: The Nigerian Experience”, Magu said the sum was exclusive of smaller currencies in Durham, CRA and British Pound.

He stated that the commission had made a lot of recoveries locally using the mechanism of the non-conviction based forfeiture provided under Section 17 of the Advance Fee Fraud and Other Fraud Related Offences Act, 2006.

“Within this year alone, the commission recovered stolen assets running into several millions of US Dollars and billions in naira.

“These include the sum of $43 million recovered from Deziani Allison-Madueke, Nigeria’s former Minister of Petroleum and N2 billion spread in seven accounts within three Nigerian banks laundered from the Federal Capital Territory Police Command Salary Accounts”, he explained.

Magu, who was said to be a panelist at the Implementation Review Group attended by over 100 delegates, detailed the Nigerian efforts in asset recovery.

He said the country had also made progress in specific cases related to Abacha loot, Malabu Oil, Diezani and associates, and the arms procurement scandal.

These efforts, he said, cut across Switzerland, USA, UK, UAE, Jersey Island and Panama.
In his recommendations, the EFCC boss sought improved coordination and cooperation among state parties in asset recovery.

He said this could be done through the consideration and adoption of measures that would remove traditional barriers such as bank secrecy in line with Article 46(8) and dual Criminality Article 46(9) as well as simplify legal technicalities in the recovery and repatriation of stolen funds.

He further sought measures to reduce cost of recovery of assets for developing countries and ensure speedy return of all stolen assets to victim states in line with the current resolution sponsored by Nigeria.

He also called for sanction and prosecution of any financial institution that violates AML/CFT measures and the maintenance of a public register on beneficial ownership.

Meanwhile, Nigeria has received global commendation for its doggedness in tracing and recovery of its solen assets, according to the commission’s spokesman.

Uwujaren said the commendation came at a meeting between Magu and Dr Nassar Abaalkhail, the Head of International Collaboration, National Anti-Corruption Commission, Saudi Arabia.
The meeting, which held on the sidelines of the conference, followed Magu’s presentation, Uwujaren said.

He quoted Abaalkhail as saying that Nigeria’s efforts at loot recovery were remarkable.
“From what I have heard, Nigeria’s effort at asset tracing is remarkable. Nigeria is indeed a role model for countries, including developed countries.
“We have so much to learn from Nigeria”, he said.

Uwujaren said the Iranian National Focal Point for the United Nations Convention Against Corruption, Dr Mohsen Mardal, also commended the Nigerian presentation.

Similarly, the Commissioner, Sierra Leone Anti-Corruption Agency, Ady Macauley, said the EFCC was not only “formidable, but a pride to the African States”.

“My men were in Nigeria a fortnight ago to understudy your operations, I must confess, we have a lot to learn in investigation, prosecution and asset recovery”



Nigerian dwarf goat called Ollie. Photo credit: Patch.com
 
Ollie, a  Nigerian dwarf goat, kept at the Elmwood Park Zoo in Norristown, Pennsylvannia, United States  passed away on Tuesday.

The goat was 15 years old, according to an obituary published by www.patch.com.
Given that the lifespan of its species is typically between 12 and 15, Ollie lived a long and happy life. the newspaper said.

Zoo officials said that Ollie passed away overnight from “complications that come with old age.”
Ollie has been a resident at the zoo since Aug. 4, 2003, when he arrived at the age of six months with his brother Duncan.

According to the zoo, Ollie was beloved by both staff and guests for his kind and loving nature.
Nigerian Dwarf Goats are native to West Africa, where they originated as a miniature dairy goat. They grow to around two feet in height.
In May this year, the Police in Winnebago County, Wisconsin declared another Nigerian dwarf goat, named  Cinnamon, missing. The police never reported its  recovery.

One year ago, Automobili Lamborghini started a collaboration with the MIT - Massachusetts Institute of Technology - to pioneer the future of sports cars and rewrite the rules.

Today, an important step forward has been made in this regard: Lamborghini has just unveiled “Terzo Millennio” at EmTech MIT Conference, a new design concept about the future of the super sports cars. The prototype is on display for EmTech MIT attendees and the MIT community.

This visionary concept physically imagines design and technology of tomorrow through a possible future Lamborghini electric super sports car, which aims to deliver the most emotional and ultimate driving experience.

To plan its path, Automobili Lamborghini defines the requirements of the third millennium in terms of energy storage and innovative materials, aiming to lead them to a radical innovation in collaboration with two laboratories of the MIT: the “Dinca Research Lab”, led by Prof. Mircea Dinca, Department of Chemistry, and the “Mechanosynthesis Group”, led by Prof. Anastasios John Hart, Department of Mechanical Engineering.

In addition to the energy storage systems and the innovative materials for the vehicle’s body, Lamborghini also aims to address the future of the super sports cars in the powertrain and vehicle architecture, in the sound and emotion, while sustaining the visual appeal and the breathtaking performance.

It is about creating new concepts to shape the future of sports cars, facing what is impossible today to shape the reality of tomorrow. This design concept sets the path to realize this vision and marks the first step towards a future electric super sports car.

Lamborghini Terzo Millennio is radical in the energy management and in the body and extreme in the architecture and design, in line with both Lamborghini culture and a third millennium which requires new concepts, innovative solutions and the adoption of electrified powertrains.
