"I have received information that terrorist death-hunters were collecting not only cash and jewellery of the dead passengers but also credit cards... My humble request to relatives of the victims is to freeze their credit cards, so they won't lose their assets to terrorists."

The Australian July 22, 2014.

*Looting appears to have been carried out at the crash site where Malaysian Airlines MH17 was shot out of the sky over Ukrainian territory by pro-Russian rebels killing 298 passengers and crew (including up to 80 young children).

"She was only half a person but she was a woman. Her head... and her foot, they found that up there in the roof still. But she was here with us in the house. We know the situation of war and are so aware of bombs dropping, and we thought it was a bomb."

... Ms Tipunova, home owner near Donetsk, Ukrain,
The Australian July 22, 2014.

*The body of this victim of Malaysian Airlines MH17 was sliced in two and had limbs torn off as it plunged through the corrugated iron roof of the house. Witnesses describe how after the passenger jet was blown apart "bodies were dropping all around... one hit an electricity line cutting off power to the street". The drop from 33,000 feet would have taken about 4 minutes.

"Baghdadi's decision to have all women circumcised is to prevent immorality and promote Islamic attitudes among Muslims. The decision was made by Baghdadi as a gift for people in Mosul (northern Iraq)."

... Ahmed Obaydi, Police spokesman,
THE TIMES July 25, 2014.

* The leader of al-Qa'ida splinter group "the Islamic State", Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, has reportedly issued a fatwa (a religious decree) that all females aged from 11-46 submit to compulsory genital circumcision. 2 weeks ago a man was crucified for eating during Ramadan, and all Christians in Mosul have been warned to convert to Islam or leave as there is "nothing for them but the sword" if they refuse.

"Children who are bullied have fewer friends than other students, which places them at greater risk of ongoing victimisation... this can attract more bullying over time. When you increase kids' confidence in dealing with peers they're less distressed, less fearful and anxious."

Deadly Ebola Virus Spreading: ... July 28, 2014.

Signs of panic and fear are spreading throughout west Africa as the death toll from the current Ebola outbreak climbs to over 730 (over 60 of these health workers). Ebola is one of the world's deadliest diseases proving fatal in 60-90% of cases. There is no known cure.

Locals armed with machetes and slingshots are denying health workers access in some areas blaming them for introducing and spreading the disease. Instead, frightened locals are turning to local witch-doctors who use spells, voodoo and fetishes. Frustrated medical teams complain "We're not stopping the epidemic."

Nigerian officials are in crisis mode after a sick virus-carrier flew into Lagos airport (Africa's largest city with over 21 million people).

A grave digger at a burial site said... "We're all scared here. There is no solution. Only God can save us."

10 Year-old Indian Girl Ordered To Be Raped: ... July 10, 2014.

A 10 year-old girl has been raped (by a 25 year-old man) on the orders of a village headman as the entire village looked on. The incident is the latest brutal reminder of the atrocious record of violence against females in India.

The 25 year-old man had complained to the headman that he'd been beaten up the night before by the young girl's father. It didn't seem to matter that he'd earned the beating for breaking into the young girl's home while drunk and trying to molest her mother.

It seems many villagers live in fear of the village headman.

Texan Kills 6 of Ex-Wife's Family: ... July 10, 2014.

A 33 year-old Texan man (with a history of domestic violence) went looking for his ex-wife at her sister's home.

Pretending to be a delivery man, he gained entry to the home and tied up his 15 year-old ex-niece. When the other 4 children finally returned home (2 boys aged 4 and 13, 2 girls aged 7 and 9) along with their father and mother they too were tied up.

He then shot them all 7 of them, execution-style, in the back of the head. Their killer then left intent on hunting down his ex-wife's parents to kill them as well.

Miraculously, the 15 year-old girl survived the head wound and managed to alert police who intercepted and arrested the crazed murderer.

Russian Missile Shoots Down Passenger Jet Killing 298: ... July 18, 2014.

Malaysian Airlines flight MH17 has been blown out of the sky by a surface-to-air missile as it flew over a war zone in eastern Ukraine. All 298 people on board, including 80 children, were killed.

Wreckage and bodies were strewn over a huge area leaving an apocalyptic scene of devastation and carnage. Witnesses said "bodies were raining out of the sky". One woman's body was cut to pieces when it crashed through the corrugated roof of a farmhouse; another brought down power lines causing a blackout. The drop from 33,000 feet would have taken about 4 minutes

The crash site could not be secured due to clashes in the area between Ukrainian military and pro-Russian rebels. Fears were immediately raised that the disaster site would not be preserved to allow a proper investigation into the disaster (which some were calling a "war crime").

Looting of valuables and credit cards appears to have been carried out at the crash site and wreckage trampled over, removed, and interfered with. Fighting in the area has continued and intensified.

Man Survives Pamploma's Running Bulls: ... July 9, 2014.

"Buffalo" Bill Hillman, co-author of "How To Survive The Bulls Of Pamploma", might need to go back and re-read his book.

The 32 year-old American was gored in the thigh by a running bull but was lucky the horns missed an artery and bone. A Spanish man next to him suffered serious injuries to his chest.

The yearly event (made famous by Ernest Hemingway in his novel "The Sun Also Rises") involves a number of events where 6 bulls are let loose to make a 850 meter dash through the cobble-stoned streets of Pamploma to the bull-ring where they will compete that day. The festival dates back to the 13th century.

15 runners have died to date, the last a young Spaniard in 2009 who was gored in the neck. Authorities have tried to discourage "reckless behaviour" (like those trying to join in after heavy drinking) by introducing fines from 600-60,000 Euros.

Man Drives Off 100' Cliff & Lives: ... April 14, 2014.

A 33 year-old English man was lucky to walk away with minor injuries after his car plunged through a fence and over a 100 foot high cliff onto rocks by the sea near Brighton.

A rescuer said the man was "obviously not in a great condition, but managed to walk himself up the beach." The vehicle smashed onto the rocks below rear-end first.

Emergency services removing the Ford Focus from the rocks next morning said his survival was "miraculous".

Climber Survives Fall Into 300' Crevasse: ... May 23, 2014.

A climber in the Himalayan mountains of Nepal has survived a 70 foot fall into a deep crevasse. He landed on a ledge which stopped him falling a further 200 feet or more. The crevasse was completely hidden under a flat section of snow.

The 44 year-old Professor of Geography at Western Kentucky University suffered a broken arm, five broken ribs, 2 dislocated shoulders, and internal bleeding. His first thought was he was going to die down there and began taking a video.

Finally he managed to drag himself back to the surface (it took him 5 hours) and back to his tent. He used Facebook to send a plea for help and a helicopter came to his rescue 17 hours later.
