Again! North Korea has fired a ballistic missile

Again! North Korea has fired a ballistic missile



Again!?North Korea has fired a ballistic missile

According to an official at South Korea's Joint Chiefs of Staff, "North Korea fired an unidentified ballistic missile early this morning from Pyongsong, South Pyongan, to the east direction. South Korea's Joint Chiefs of Staff is analyzing more details of the missile with the US side".

South Korea's Joint Chiefs of Staff said Tuesday, that the South Korean military carried out a "precision missile strike drill" just minutes after North Korea's missile launch. The precision missile strike matched the flight distance of the North Korean missile and landed in waters off the east coast of South Korea.

In reaction to this latest missile, President Donald Trump told reporters at the White House that the United States "will handle" the situation in North Korea after the rogue nation launched yet another intercontinental ballistic missile earlier in the day.

"We will take care of it," Trump said, adding later that North Korea "is a situation that we will handle."

Pentagon spokesperson Col. Rob Manning told reporters that the missile was "launched from Sain Ni, North Korea, and traveled about 1,000 kilometers before splashing down in the Sea of Japan, within Japan's Economic Exclusion Zone."

Egyptian security forces kill 11 suspected militants

Egyptian security forces kill?11 suspected militants

The Egyptian Ministry of Interior confirms that security forces have killed 11 suspected militants in the Suez Canal city of Ismailia as part of a campaign aimed at “foiling terrorist attempts to destabilise northern Sinai”. 

 

“Security forces monitored movements by some leaders in northern Sinai who planned to carry out a series of attacks against vital institutions and Christian places of worship,’’ the ministry added.  

 

The campaign came after Friday’s assault on a mosque in northern Sinai which killed 305 people, the deadliest attack in Egypt’s modern history.  “A shoot-out erupted when security forces targeted a suspected militant hideout in Ismailia, around 115 kilometres north-east of Cairo, which led to the killing of 11 suspects, who are yet to be identified,’’ the ministry said.  

 

The forces also confiscated weapons and home-made explosive devices, while another nine suspects were arrested for “providing logistical support” for insurgents in northern Sinai. Prosecutors have said between 25 and 30 militants attacked the al-Rawdah mosque in the village of the same name, shortly after Friday’s noon prayers.

 

However, no group has yet claimed responsibility. Militants affiliated with Islamic State have claimed previous attacks in Egypt.  Those earlier attacks mainly targeted security forces and the country’s minority Christian community.  Report says assaults on mosques are rare in mostly Muslim Egypt.

A grandmother of a girl who survived the Manchester Arena terror attack "died of a broken heart" less than an hour after her 18-year-old granddaughter passed away from complications with diabetes. 

Zara Ahmed, 18, was at the Ariana Grande concert with friends in May when bomber Salman Ramadan Abedi blew himself up, killing 23 people and injuring hundreds. The student survived the attack, however, she passed away at her halls of residence at Liverpool John Moore's University, where she was studying forensic science.

Soon after Zara's grandmother learned of her death, she collapsed and died.

Speaking from the family home Zara's mother, Asefa Ahmed, said: "My husband's mother heard the news and within a couple of hours she had passed. It was just such a shock for her – her grandma adored her. She was her only granddaughter. She suffered a heart attack but died of a broken heart."

Zara was said to have been left "traumatised" by what she saw during the tragic Manchester concert.

Mrs Ahmed, 45, said: "Zara went with her friends and it was her first concert – she adored Ariana Grande. She saw a lot that day and hadn't been sleeping since. She'd been sleeping with the lights on or would sleep in my bedroom with me. It really shook her up thinking why that would happen. 

"Zara had blood on her shoes and was thinking 'whose is that blood? Even on Bonfire night the noise of the fireworks reminded her. We were at my brother's and there was a large bang and she started screaming and crying. The whole experience shattered her and she said she was not going to go again."

Mrs Ahmed is now speaking about the family tragedy to raise awareness about diabetes. She said they are still waiting for the post-mortem results but the family want to raise awareness of diabetes.

Meek Mill's Judge ordered to decide on his application for bail without delay

Meek Mill's Judge ordered to decide on his application for bail without delay



Meek Mill

The judge who sentenced Meek Mill to 2 to 4 years in prison for parole violations has been ordered to grant him a bail hearing for the 'harsh' sentencing. 

The order was given on Monday, after his lawyers appealed to officials at Pennsylvania’s Superior Court, accusing Brinkley of holding up their appeal proceedings by failing to respond to any of their recent motions, while they also lodged an emergency order seeking bail for their famous client.

But the Superior Court judges declined to grant Meek’s bail request, explaining the matter should “first be presented to the lower court”, while ordering Judge Brinkley to rule on the outstanding issues "without further delay."

“The Court of Common Pleas is directed to enter a disposition of petitioner’s November 16, 2017, motion for bail without further delay,” the Superior Court said.

Mill’s rep, Jordan Siev, told TMZ of the ruling, “We’re pleased that the Superior Court took immediate action to direct the Court of Common Pleas to decide on the application for bail without further delay. We remain hopeful that Mr. Williams will be promptly released on bail.”

Meanwhile, Judge Brinkley who has been accused of having a vendetta against Mill because the rapper would not give her a shout-out in a song. has been repeatedly criticized,  with many claiming that the sentencing was too harsh. 

It's yet unknown when Judge Brinkley will hold the bail hearing.

Zimbabwean President issues 3-months ultimatum to looters to return stolen funds

Zimbabwean President issues 3-months ultimatum to looters to return stolen funds

Emmerson Mnangagwa, Zimbabwe’s new President has opened a three-month amnesty window for the return of public funds illegally stashed abroad by individuals and companies.  

Mnangagwa in a statement Tuesday said that upon the expiration of the amnesty at end of February 2018, the government will arrest and prosecute those who would have failed to comply.

The country's former finance minister Ignatius Chombo, was on Monday charged with three counts of corruption in offences that allegedly took place two decades ago. He was denied bail on Monday and will remain in custody until his case is heard on December 8.  Chombo, who faces charges including trying to defraud the central bank, was detained after the military seized power in “Operation Restore Legacy”, which it said was meant to remove “criminals” around former president Robert Mugabe.  

His lawyer, Lovemore Madhuku, told reporters that he would appeal the magistrate’s ruling in the High Court on Tuesday.  “We are hopeful that the High Court will show independence,” Madhuku said.  The magistrate who detained Chombo said the former minister could abscond, influence state witnesses or be the target of a mob attack over the allegations that he abused his position.  

Chombo, who was appointed finance minister in October, was among members of the G40 political faction allied to Mugabe and his wife, Grace, who were also expelled from the ruling ZANU-PF party.  

Two ousted ZANU-PF Youth League leaders, Kudzanai Chipanga and Innocent Hamandishe, who were both allied to G-40, were also ordered to be detained until Dec. 8.  Some supporters of new president Emmerson Mnangagwa have called for unspecified action against G40 but Mnangagwa has urged citizens not to undertake any form of “vengeful retribution”.

One Miss Elohoh, said to be a plantain seller allegedly killed her newborn baby boy hours after delivery on Monday, November 27.

Elohoh, said to be in her late 20s, resides with her mother and siblings at No 1 omohwovo street, Iwhrekpokpo in Ughelli North, Delta State. Below is the report posted on Facebook:

Report has it that she put to bed a handsome baby boy late in the evening of Monday, in her house without aid or assistance from neighbor’s or midwife. But the cry of the baby attracted the attention of one of the neighbor’s, who called on others to share the good news. On arrival they saw that the door was locked and Miss Elohoh refused to open the door, but on the persistence of one of her siblings, she opened the door.

The kind hearted neighbor did a marathon in getting some of the needed materials, like cloths and food for the baby and mother since she didn't buy any. Jubilation was agog with the arrival of the bouncing baby boy.

After the celebration, everyone went home leaving Elohoh and one of her siblings at home, since their mom was not home that day, the hopes that they'd check on her the following morning.

Thr following day, the neighbors showed up to see how Elohoh and her baby were doing, only to find out that there was no baby anywhere.

They asked Elohoh about the child and she claimed that the child's father came late in the night and took the baby away, having noticed that the child was not breathing well.


The neighbors could not believe the story Elohoh gave and decided to interrogate her, she held on to the same story until one of them suggested that they ask her sibling what actually happened to the child.

And now this is the story as told by him. He said late in the night when everyone was gone, Elohor boiled water and forced it on the child to kill him but she ended up scalding the baby's entire mouth of the day old child.

As If that was not enough, when the child defied death, she took a rag and tied it around the child's nose and mouth which suffocated the child. When she noticed that the child was dead she took the body and put him in a sack which had trash in it, including plantain peels then gave it to an insane man to throw off early in the morning as refuse.

On hearing this, the whole neighborhood was filled with sadness of this evil act done by this woman. A search was conducted at all the refuse dumps within the area. Finally the corpse of the child was found, with several bruises, confirming what her brother told them.

The woman has been handed over to security agents at B division of the police Force for further investigation.

She has refused to name who impregnated her, also neither her mother nor father has shown up yet.

Senator Al Franken issues new apology again for groping radio host' breasts while she slept, says he's just a big hugger

Senator Al Franken issues new apology again for groping radio host' breasts while she slept, says he's just a big hugger 



Senator Al Franken issues new apology again for groping radio host

Democrat Senator Al Franken has apologised after he was accused of groping a former California model and Radio host as she slept during a USO tour in Afghanistan in 2006. 

The California morning radio host Leeann Tweeden at a press conference last week, said Franken grabbed her breasts while she slept on a military aircraft. She produced a photo that shows Franken grabbing her breasts when she was a 23-year-old model during the tour.

In a statement issued by the Democrat Senator on Thanksgiving Day, he apologised and says he is just a warm person who loves to hug.

“I’ve met tens of thousands of people and taken thousands of photographs, often in crowded and chaotic situations,” he wrote. “I’m a warm person; I hug people. I’ve learned from recent stories that in some of those encounters, I crossed a line for some women — and I know that any number is too many. Some women have found my greetings or embraces for a hug or photo inappropriate, and I respect their feelings about that.”

He continued:

“I’ve thought a lot in recent days about how that could happen, and recognize that I need to be much more careful and sensitive in these situations. I feel terribly that I’ve made some women feel badly and for that I am so sorry, and I want to make sure that never happens again. And let me say again to Minnesotans that I’m sorry for putting them through this and I’m committed to regaining their trust.”

Senator  Al Franken who has no plans to resign from his position faces a Senate ethics probe following allegations from the four women.

Popular Abuja lawyer and activist calls on IGP to arrest the women calling on wives to kill their cheating husbands in the name of revolution

Popular Abuja lawyer and activist calls on IGP to arrest the women calling on wives to kill their cheating husbands in the name of revolution

First Baba Isa (FBI), a popular Abuja lawyer and activist has called on the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris to immediately effect the arrest of Nkechi Bianze and other women asking wives to take up arms against their cheating husbands. His post below:

Popular Abuja lawyer and activist calls on IGP to arrest the women calling on wives to kill their cheating husbands in the name of revolution

A CALL FOR THE ARREST AND PROSECUTION OF NKECHI BIANZE AND HER COHORTS.

I don't get involved in Facebook drama; I never do.

But this is beyond mere drama: to call the cold blooded murder of a husband by his wife a revolution against men is criminal.

I therefore call on the Inspector General of Police to arrest and prosecute Nkechi Bianze immediately!!! (I will submit a formal petition to this effect on Monday when I return to Abuja).

She is clearly calling on women to start stabbing their husbands and boyfriends to death in the name of revolution. She is inciting a domestic violence of wild proportions. We can't stand by and do nothing.

I know the temptation to dismiss this as the case of another bitter feminist. But this is not feminism. Please don't associate something criminal with a genuine movement like feminism. True feminists have risen to condemn her actions.

The police must act now before this gets out of hand. Already her campaign is gaining momentum. People are beginning to quote her.

If this madness is not halted, it will certainly get out of hand. How can someone rise to support, excuse or even rationalise cold blooded murder?

#ArrestNkechiBianze immediately!!!

First Baba Isa, Esq.,
Principal Partner,
FBI LEGAL.
