    Dr. Tom Catena, a Catholic missionary who works as the only physician at a small hospital that serves a population of 500,000 people living in the war-ravaged Nuba Mountains in South Kordofan, Sudan, has won the annual $1 million Aurora Prize for Awakening Humanity. The Aurora Prize, granted by the Aurora Humanitarian Initiative on behalf of the survivors of the Armenian Genocide and in gratitude to their saviors, was announced at a ceremony in Yerevan, Armenia, in May. He was selected as the 2017 Aurora Prize Laureate from more than 550 nominations submitted from 66 countries.

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. — A note found in the car of a man charged with spraying deadly gunfire at a Tennessee church made reference to revenge for a white supremacist's massacre at a black church in Charleston, South Carolina, two years earlier, law enforcement officials told The Associated Press. The note could offer a glimpse into Emanuel Kidega Samson's mindset at the time of Sunday's shooting and a possible motive for the rampage, which killed a woman and wounded six other people. The Associated Press has not viewed the note, but it was summarized in an investigative report circulating among law...

    MSNBC has refused to tell its viewers that the gunman in the Tennessee church shooting is a Sudanese immigrant, instead identifying him as being from Tennessee. In the seven mentions of the shooter’s identity on the network from Sunday afternoon when the shooting occurred until Monday morning, MSNBC never mentioned his status as an immigrant. They did share his name, age, photo, and his residence in Murfreesboro, TN. 25-year-old Emanuel Kidega Samson is originally from Khartoum, Sudan and legally immigrated to the United States in the 1990s. Samson attended high school in Tennessee. (RELATED: Tennessee Church Shooting Suspect Is A...

    One woman was killed and seven other people were hurt after a suspect identified as a Sudanese immigrant opened fire at a Tennessee church Sunday, police said, as federal officials told Fox News the FBI will initiate a civil rights investigation into the shooting. The suspect, 25-year-old Emanuel Kidega Samson, immigrated from Sudan two decades ago, police said. He's suspected of bringing two pistols and a mask to the predominantly white Burnette Chapel Church of Christ in Antioch, southeast of Nashville, before opening fire just after 11 a.m.

    HOW OTHERS SEE IT   When South Sudan declared independence, its tattered infrastructure presented enormous challenges, but also a strange sense of possibility. Now, renewed fighting has stalled attempts at nation-building – in a physical sense as well as a political one. JUBA, SOUTH SUDAN—On its face, the plan was simple. South Sudan’s largest city needed a new bridge, and a Japanese aid agency was going to build one. It was 2012 when the announcement was made, and the capital of the world’s newest country was growing up and out hungrily: a sudden glut of new huts, new houses, and...

    BELLEVUE, Neb. (WOWT) -- A local man was kicked out of a Bellevue Golden Corral because of the shirt on his back. Another customer reported him to the manager, claiming the shirt was too controversial for children to see. The situation has the man in-question considering his first amendment rights. “"I paid for the f***-ing food,” Riek Mock can be heard saying in the video. Mock told his son to start recording video on his phone Sunday when the restaurant’s manager asked him to leave. "He said a customer is complaining he don't like your T-shirt on," said Mock. "I...

He also reported that the faces of the corpses seemed to have been ripped off. He also said he was shown a Sudanese passport that he was told belonged to the pilot but added that it showed his occupation as accountant. Rebels have accused Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi of...

    Three boys from Iraq and Sudan who were invited into the country via refugee programs pled guilty to charges of sexually brutalizing a five-year-old American child in Twin Falls, Idaho, last year. A seven-year-old Iraqi boy, plus 14-year-old and 10-year-old Sudanese boys, reportedly cornered the tiny victim in a laundry room at the Fawnbrook Apartments in Twin Falls, Idaho, on June 2. They stripped her naked, sexually assaulted her, urinated all over her body and in her mouth, and videotaped the attack... The attack sparked another national uproar among Americans — but only dismissive responses from managers in resident Barack...

    Obama’s national security advisor is a liar -- and possibly a felon.Former President Obama’s National Security Advisor Susan Rice asked for the names of Trump transition officials to be unmasked and made public in raw intelligence files, according to media reports, a move apparently carried out to harm the incoming Trump administration. As recently as March 22, Rice denied knowing anything about the intelligence reports. In an appearance on “PBS Newshour,” she said pretty definitely, “I know nothing about this.” The new news reports paint Rice as a liar. The evidence we know about in the Trump-Russia saga so far...

    Marshes and dirt. Marshes and dirt. The war in South Sudan could be explained by its harsh and bewildering terrain. The only way to travel in one of the world’s poorest and most violent countries is in small, U.N.-charted planes, whose crisply-dressed pilots crouch down to explain safety features while gun-armed Toyotas speed down the runway. “There are several safety exits in this aircraft, but hopefully we won’t need them,” our captain jokes as we wait for a passenger who’s been holding up the flight.

    Bureaucrats at the State Department brought 500 refugees into the country on Tuesday, one day before President Trump “is expected to order a multi-month ban on allowing refugees into the United States except for religious minorities escaping persecution, until more aggressive vetting is in place,” according to Reuters. The temporary ban on refugees will be one of several executive orders on immigration President Trump will sign on Wednesday, Reuters reports. “Another order will block visas being issued to anyone from Syria, Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen, said the aides and experts, who asked not to be identified.” Two...

    CAIRO — Across the Muslim world, the refrain was resounding: President Trump’s freeze on refugee arrivals and visa requests from seven predominantly Muslim countries will have major diplomatic repercussions, worsen perceptions of Americans and offer a propaganda boost to the terrorist groups Mr. Trump says he is targeting. Mr. Trump’s stance has been evident since the early days of his campaign, when he advocated a “complete and total shutdown” of all Muslims entering the United States. President Trump has since softened his language, casting his order on Friday as a way to keep terrorists, not Muslims, out of the United...

    With its dying breath, the Obama administration delivered a parting shot to Donald Trump and decided to provisionally lift economic sanctions against Sudan after almost 20 years, citing “progress” in areas of human rights, ceasing hostile activities against the population, and counterterrorism. Besides having zero correlation with events on the ground in Sudan, this outlook belies a troubling reality: by normalizing bilateral relations, Obama is threatening national security by giving free rein to terrorist groups. The government of Sudan has a long history of supporting terrorists. Sanctions were first imposed by President Bill Clinton in 1997 on suspicions that Sudan...

    ...Vicious fighting between different ethnic groups erupted in the camp last year. It was not the first time they had seen violence. Timon remembers vividly the killing that took place around them as they abandoned the family’s 10 prized cows and escaped the fierce conflict around Malakal, the capital of oil-producing Upper Nile region. Inside the camp, however, violence erupted again. Timon told how the family huddled together as opposing ethnic groups fought in the narrow lanes using knives, guns and grenades. Among his mother’s worries is that he could be at risk of joining the estimated 16,000 children recruited...
