    Ali Hassan’s father, a young man who stabbed two people in a meat-cleaver attack outside the former Paris office of controversial Charlie Hebdo magazine last week, said to himself ” proud ”of his son. In an interview with online channel Naya Pakistan, the father, whose name is withheld, said his son had “done a great job” and was “very happy” with the attack. The French government condemned Friday’s stabbing in front of the former office of the satirical magazine as an act of “Islamist terrorism”. The man, previously identified as Ali Hassan, seriously injured two employees of the Premieres Ligne...

    Saudi Arabia is locking up African migrants in hellish detention centres to stop them spreading the coronavirus, it has emerged. Images leaked to the Sunday Telegraph show emaciated migrants packed into cramped cells in the searing Middle East heat. Prisoners say they are 'treated like animals' by Saudi guards who beat them with whips and electric cords and toss away the bodies of migrants who died of heatstroke or suicide.

    PARIS - A 39-year-old man has been arrested in connection with a fire in the 15th century cathedral in the French city of Nantes that blew out stained glass windows and destroyed the grand organ, TV channel LCI reported on Sunday. The man, a Rwandan refugee, worked as a volunteer for the cathedral and had been in charge of locking up the building on Friday night, LCI said, citing prosecutor Pierre Sennes. Sennes said the man in custody was being held to clear up inconsistencies in his schedule. He said on Saturday that three fires had been started at the...

    Migrants in the United States sent about $103 billion in mostly untaxed remittances to six foreign countries last year — including about $19 billion to China. A World Bank report, detailed by the Wall Street Journal, reveals the extent to which foreign nationals living in the U.S. drain mostly untaxed money from the nation’s economy to send to relatives overseas.
  • A deadly rabbit virus nicknamed 'bunny Ebola' is spreading in the Southwestern US, killing thousands of rabbits

    Across seven states in the Southwest, thousands of wild and domestic rabbits are dying from a rare outbreak of a highly contagious disease known as rabbit hemorrhagic disease virus (RHDV2). "We refer to it as 'bunny Ebola,'" Amanda Jones, a veterinarian from Killeen, Texas, told The Cut. While the rabbit virus is "not related in any way, shape, or form" to ebola — a virus that causes severe bleeding, organ failure, and death in humans and primates — Jones said RHDV2 ravages rabbit bodies in a similar manner. The virus causes lesions in rabbits' organs and tissues, which leads to...
  • Danish far-right party leader sentenced to jail on racism and defamation

    COPENHAGEN - The leader of Danish far-right party Stram Kurs, lawyer Rasmus Paludan, was disbarred from the legal profession and sentenced to three months in jail on Thursday after being found guilty of racism. Stram Kurs (Hard Line) was close to getting into parliament in the last election in Denmark with a policy based on banning Islam and deporting hundreds of thousands of Muslims. Paludan first came to public attention in 2017 when he started making anti-Muslim Youtube videos. His stunts have included publicly burning the Koran, sometimes wrapped in bacon, in what he said was a tribute to free...

    Two large sculptures celebrating mass migration will be unveiled in London next year, the Guardian has revealed. It was announced Monday, on the UK’s second ever ‘Windrush Day’, that works by artists Thomas J Price and Veronica Ryan will be erected in London’s Hackney borough in 2021. Windrush Day commemorates the beginning of the modern mass migration era in Britain in 1948, and was instituted in 2018 after some members of that original generation of post-war migrant arrivals were detained and deported because of government error, causing a significant scandal.
  • France sends the army into Dijon as city is turned into a war zone by assault rifle-toting Chechen gangs mounting revenge attacks on Arab gangsters for beating of 16-year-old

    Military reinforcements were flooding into Dijon after Chechen gangs were filmed firing assault rifles in the air as they prepared to carry out 'revenge attacks'. Horrifying videos released on social media show the well-armed masked men – who also brandish pistols – in the eastern city, 200 miles from Paris. The hooded gang members are refugees from Chechnya – part of the Russian Federation which has been involved in two bloody independence wars over the past 26 years.

    Paradise Falls, located 40 miles north of Los Angeles, has long been one of the state's 'most-treasured natural wonders', but The Conejo Open Space Conservation Agency barricaded access to the attraction Friday in light of bad behavior. . . . 'While trash cans are available, many simply left it for COSCA staff to clean up and trash accumulated faster than it could be removed.' According to the organization, there were additional problems with 'human waste and sanitation as many used areas along the creek both upstream and downstream as a toilet'. One official told Thousand Oaks Acorn that people were...

    A teenage girl was beheaded by her ex-boyfriend when she returned to his flat to collect her belongings after she broke up with him, it has been claimed. Wilma Andersson, 17, disappeared on November 14 last year before police found a 'body part' a fortnight later which turned out to be her head. Her ex-boyfriend Tishko Ahmed Shabaz was arrested and has now been charged with her murder in a case that has shocked Sweden because it is deemed as one of the safest countries in the world, Expressen reports. The rest of Wilma's body has yet to be found....

    Mexicans received more than $4 billion in remittances from the United States in March, a 49 percent increase from the $2.7 billion sent in February, marking the biggest month-to-month increase on record. The February-to-March spike in remittances – money sent to friends and family abroad by U.S. residents – was the single largest month-to-month rise since at least 1995, the earliest year when data is available from the country's central bank, the Banco de México. Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador referenced the surge in remittances at his daily press conference Tuesday, framed as part of his commemoration of Cinco...

    Thousands of  desperate  migrants are trapped in limbo and even at risk of death without food, water or shelter in scorching deserts and at sea, as  governments close off borders and ports amid the coronavirus pandemic. Migrants have been dropped by the truckload in the Sahara Desert or bused to Mexico’s desolate border with Guatemala and beyond. They are drifting in the Mediterranean Sea after European and Libyan authorities declared their ports unsafe. Many governments have declared emergencies, saying a public health crisis like the coronavirus pandemic requires extraordinary measures. However, these measures are just the latest efforts by governments...

    CASTEL VOLTURNO, Italy - They are known as “the invisibles”: Undocumented African migrants who, even before the coronavirus outbreak plunged Italy into crisis, barely scraped by as day laborers, prostitutes, freelance hairdressers and seasonal farm hands. Locked down for two months in crumbling apartments in a mob-infiltrated town north of Naples, their hand-to-mouth existence has grown even more precarious with no work, no food and no hope. Italy is preparing to reopen some business and industry on Monday in a preliminary easing of its virus shutdown. But there is no indication that “the invisibles” of Castel Volturno will get back...

    MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - Mexico has almost entirely cleared out its migrant shelters over the past five weeks to contain the spread of the coronavirus pandemic, returning most of the occupants to their countries of origin, official data showed on Sunday. In a statement, the National Migration Institute (INM) said that in order to comply with health and safety guidelines, since March 21 it had been removing migrants from Mexico’s 65 migrant facilities, which were harboring 3,759 people last month. In the intervening weeks, Mexico has returned 3,653 migrants to Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador by road and air with...

    Joining more than 1,000 others, Djemba Diatite stood for hours in line to feed her growing family, grateful for handouts of fruits, vegetables and soap. It was her first time accepting charity, but she had no choice. The coronavirus pandemic has turned her small world upside down. With open air markets closed, supermarket prices skyrocketing, an out-of-work husband, two children to feed and another on the way, Diatite said even tomatoes are now too expensive. “This is my only solution,” she said, relieved that a local group in her Paris suburb of Clichy-sous-Bois stepped in with help.
