  1. File Photo LAHORE: Four terrorists ? said to have belonged to the banned outfit Tehrik-i-Taliban ? were shot dead Friday night during an exchange of gunfire in Faisalabad, a spokesperson for the Counter-Terrorism Department (CTD) said. The suspects ? seven in total ? were riding motorcycles when they were asked to stop by officials of the CTD, in response to which they opened fire. While four alleged terrorists were killed by CTD's retaliatory firing, three of their accomplices managed to escape arrest, the spokesperson stated. Authorities revealed that weapons, as well as explosives worth 3 kilogrammes, were recovered from the deceased terror suspects. It is unclear if the CTD is conducting a follow-up search for the fugitive terrorists or whether any of the escapees were captured subsequently.
  2. It's shameful to see how things are taking a gruesome turn in case of Sanjay Leela Bhansali's 'Padmavati'. If you were offended with BJP's Haryana Minister offering a bounty of Rs. 10 crores on Deepika Padukone's head, we don't know how you would react to this. A dead body was found hanging at the main gate of Jaipur's Nahargarh Fort and that's not it. It also had a chilling note with a deadly message, “We don't burn effigies, we kill”. #Rajasthan: Body found hanging at Nahargarh Fort in #Jaipur, threat note on rocks also seen #Padmavati pic.twitter.com/sSx9ONhF7D — ANI (@ANI) November 24, 2017 This is the first time in the history of Bollywood when things have gone so out of hand and have taken a sinister turn. This whole incident makes us question the rapidly plunging levels of tolerance in our country. As per reports by News 18, police are trying to find the cause of the person's death. But it is disheartening to see the extent to which people are going just to crush a film that revolves around the story of Queen Padmini. (c) ANI/ Twitter The body is yet to be identified and the cops were notified about it by the visitors who were shocked to see a corpse hanging from the fort. If you feel that Karni Sena, who has been opposing the release of the film and creating hurdles for it are responsible, then you should know that the organisation has come forward and condemned the macabre incident, making it clear they would never use such means to convey their message. (c) ANI/ Twitter The president of Karni Sena came forward and spoke to News 18 sharing his view and said, “This is not the way to send a message. If anyone wants to send out a message of such sort, it is imparting a wrong message. Opposition to 'Padmavati' is justified, but this is not justified. This could be a suicide. This is not our way of protest. We condemn this” Let's hope this unfortunate development has got nothing to do with the movie, because that would simply become a large blot on our nation. FIRST ON CNN-NEWS18 | This could be a suicide. This is not our way of protest. We condemn this: Mahipal Singh Makrana, Karni Sena President pic.twitter.com/t7UMB1TZoe — News18 (@CNNnews18) November 24, 2017 Looking at the way things are unfolding, we wonder if this magnum opus will ever see the light of the day. However, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee just announced that the film won't be banned in her state and makers are welcome to release it there. Let's hope more ministers come in support of the film and give it a fair chance to release.
  3. Kano, Nigeria: At least 50 people were killed on Tuesday in a suicide bomb blast at a mosque in the northeastern town of Mubi, in Adamawa state, northeast Nigeria, police told AFP.

  4. Actress Della Reese speaks in Hollywood, Los Angeles, California, US, December 14, 2004. REUTERS/Fred Prouser/Files LOS ANGELES: Actress and gospel singer Della Reese, best known for her role in the Touched By An Angel television series, has died at the age of 86 at her home in California, her family said on Monday. The actress ?passed away peacefully at her California home surrounded by love? on Sunday, her husband, Franklin Lett, and her family said in a statement. The statement was posted on the family?s behalf by Reese?s co-star Roma Downey on her Instagram page. ?Through her life and work she touched and inspired the lives of millions of people,? the statement added. No cause of death was given, but Reese suffered from diabetes, which was diagnosed some 17 years ago. Detroit-born Reese was trained as a gospel singer, and first found fame in the late 1950s and early 1960s with pop and jazz hits like Don?t You Know. By 1969, she had her own talk show Della ? the first to be hosted by an African-American woman. She then landed roles in shows like It Takes Two and Crazy Like a Fox. Her biggest part, however, was her role as the sarcastic supervisor angel Tess on the supernatural CBS TV series Touched By An Angel, which ran for nine years until 2003. Reese also sang the title song ?Walk With You.? In the late 1980s, Reese started a church from her Los Angeles living room. The church, called Understanding Principles for Better Living, known as UP, later moved to its own facilities and Reese became known as The Reverend Dr. Della Reese Lett. Reese?s other TV and movie roles included Harlem Nights, Promised Land, and The Royal Family.
  5. Bystanders and rescue officials at the site of the accident. KHAIRPUR: A deadly traffic accident left at least 17 people dead and five injured in Khairpur, Sindh on Monday morning. Police officials said a truck laden with coal was en route from Ranipur to Sukkur when it attempted to overtake a passenger van on the Shah Hussain bypass.

  6. Recording artist Mel Tillis performs at The Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, Tennessee, US, June 6, 2014. AFP/Getty Images North America/Jason Davis/Files WASHINGTON: Country Music Hall of Famer Mel Tillis ? known for songs such as "I Ain't Never" and "Coca-Cola Cowboy" ? died early Sunday aged 85, his publicist confirmed. The country legend died of suspected respiratory failure at the Munroe Regional Medical Center in Ocala, Florida, publicist Don Murry Grubbs said in a statement. "Tillis battled intestinal issues since early 2016 and never fully recovered," he said. Tillis, a father of six who endeared fans with his stammer and self-deprecating charm, recorded more than 60 albums, scored 35 top 10 singles, and saw 600 of his songs recorded by major artists during a career spanning six decades. The former Air Force baker ? who had his heyday in the 1970s ? also dipped into film and television, appearing on shows such as Hee Haw and movies including Smokey and the Bandit II (1980) and Every Which Way but Loose (1978), alongside Clint Eastwood. He was also active in business ventures which included radio stations and publishing companies, as well as his own theatre in Branson, Missouri, where he performed thousands of shows, according to The Tennessean newspaper. In 2012, then-President Barack Obama awarded Tillis the National Medal of Arts. He was also a member of the Grand Ole Opry and a Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame inductee. A representative for Tillis' daughter Pam Tillis, also a country singer-songwriter, wrote on her Facebook page that his death was "sudden and unexpected". Tributes from fellow country music stars poured in on social media, with musician and The Voice judge Blake Shelton describing Tillis' death as "a truly devastating loss."
  7. Policemen investigate the site of a fire in Beijing, China, April 25, 2011. BEIJING: A fire tore through a house in Beijing Saturday, killing 19 people and injuring eight, Chinese state media said. The inferno broke out in Beijing's southern Daxing district, Xinhua news agency said, citing local authorities. The report did not specify the cause but said an unspecified number of suspects were in police custody. Xinhua said the fire was brought under control some three hours after it erupted and that the injured had been rushed to the hospital. Deadly fires are common in China, where fire safety regulations are widely flouted and enforcement is often lax. Eleven people died in September when a fire broke out in two houses in the eastern city of Taizhou.
  8. Roads in the area were closed off for a number of hours. Image Courtesy: BBC via South Beds News Agency LONDON: Four people were killed Friday when an aircraft and a helicopter collided in Buckinghamshire, south England, local police said. Two people were killed in each aircraft, which came down in woods near Waddesdon Estate, near Aylesbury, according to Thames Valley Police said. Police chief Rebecca Mears said she could not yet give out the identities of the victims. "Our priorities today remain with investigating the next of kin, finding out who they are, informing them and supporting them with specialist officers as we progress the investigation here on site," she said in a statement. "We anticipate being here until about Monday morning, potentially longer, we do not rush these things, it's really important we do a meticulous investigation and really thorough to get to the bottom of what's happened here." Both aircraft had taken off from nearby Wycombe Air Park, a spokesman said. The Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB) said it was assisting in the investigation, revealing that the plane involved was a light Cessna. South Central Ambulance Service said the alarm was raised at 12:09 PM (1209 GMT) local time "to a mid-air collision involving a helicopter and an aircraft". "We sent a number of resources to the scene, including the Thames Valley air ambulance, two ambulance crews, two ambulance officers and a rapid response vehicle," said a spokeswoman.

The Thames Valley Police said, "officers are currently at the scene of an air accident near the village of Waddesdon near Aylesbury."
  10. Afghan secuirty forces are seen at the site of an explosion near a gathering of supporters of regional leader Atta Mohammad Noor. -AFP1 KABUL: A suicide attacker blew himself up outside a wedding hall in Kabul killing at least 18 people, reported TOLO News Thursday, in an apparent attempt to strike a political gathering underway inside. As a result of the attack, 10 other people were wounded. Eyewitnesses said at least three cars were also destroyed in the incident and surrounding buildings sustained some damage. The Taliban was quick to deny responsibility for the attack, the latest to hit the war-weary Afghan capital where insurgents have been stepping up assaults in a show of deadly force. Supporters of Atta Mohammad Noor, the powerful governor of the northern province of Balkh and a vocal critic of Afghan President Ashraf Ghani, had been holding an event inside the hall at the time of the blast. Noor was not at the event, one of his aides told AFP. The bomber tried to enter the building but was stopped at the security checkpoint where he detonated his device, Kabul police spokesman Abdul Basir Mujahid told AFP. "A number of our police personnel are among the casualties," Mujahid added. Interior ministry spokesman Najib Danish said seven policemen and two civilians had been killed. "The bomber detonated himself after he was identified by the police at the entrance gate," Danish said. Another nine were wounded including seven police and two civilians, he added. 'Chaos and panic' "After lunch, as we were exiting the hall a huge explosion shook the hall, shattering glass and causing chaos and panic," Harun Mutaref, who was at the gathering, told AFP. "I saw many bodies including police and civilians lying in blood." An AFP photographer said the windows of the wedding hall had been shattered by the force of the blast and a vehicle parked outside was on fire. Dozens of police and intelligence officers have swarmed the area and blocked access to the public. Photos posted on Twitter showed multiple bodies of men lying on top of each other in a muddy street and in a drain, and people dragging away the wounded. Noor, a senior leader of the Tajik-dominated Jamiat-e Islami party, has been an outspoken critic of Ghani and the National Unity Government. Political infighting has been intensifying ahead of next year's long-delayed district and parliamentary elections, which would pave the way for the 2019 presidential ballot. Noor has previously hinted that he may run for the country's highest office. On Wednesday Ghani - who is a Pashtun, the largest ethnic group in Afghanistan-- sacked the Independent Election Commission chief Najibullah Ahmadzai after technical and political bungling, fuelling speculation the vote will not go ahead. That came after the recent firing of Education Minister Asadullah Hanafi Balkhi, who was considered a close ally of Noor, and one of Ghani´s advisers Ahmadullah Alizai. Noor has recently called for the return of Vice President Abdul Rashid Dostum, a powerful ethnic Uzbek warlord who fled to Turkey in May after he was accused of raping and torturing a political rival in 2016. Earlier this year Noor met with Deputy Chief Executive Mohammad Mohaqiq, a senior figure in the mainly Hazara ethnic community, and Dostum in Turkey to form the "Coalition for the Salvation of Afghanistan".
  11. People watch a 12 meters whale that was found dead at Ipanema beach in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, November 15, 2017. AFP/Leo Correa RIO DE JANEIRO: The decomposing body of a dead humpback whale surprised swimmers when it washed up on the city's iconic Ipanema beach Wednesday. Curious onlookers approached a cordon to take photographs of the humpback, whose 14-meter (45 feet) long carcass gave off a putrid stench as it lay exposed to the sun. Some touched its jaw bones, which had come loose and lay on the damp sand. Rafael Carvalho, a marine mammal biologist at the State University of Rio de Janeiro, told AFP, "It is not possible to know what happened, it is in an advanced state of decomposition and that makes it difficult to know the cause of death." Carvalho is part of a team that is dedicated to removing beached whales, a relatively common phenomenon in the area because Rio lies along their migration path. The body will be removed in a truck and then buried for sanitary reasons, he added. "I've never seen one so close, I would have liked to have had the chance to save it," mused Mauro Azevedo, a 62-year-old Rio resident.

An official at the nearby Serengeti National Park, speaking on condition of anonymity, told AFP that the bodies of all the victims had been retrieved except for the pilot's. "There are some foreigners among the dead, but also Tanzanians working in the tourism industry," he said.

Photo: Geo News Over the past 24 hours, a number of road accidents occurred due to low visibility, claiming lives of two people and wounding dozens at Kasur. Traffic continues to be adversely affected due to the weather, especially at the Motorway. Moreover, a number of international and domestic flights have either been canceled or postponed at the Allama Iqbal International Airport. Flights to Karachi, Muscat and Doha have been canceled. One dead as smog continues to disrupt daily life in Punjab Smog has also seriously disrupted the residents? mobility as visibility has plunged to as low as zero from Multan to Khanewal Meanwhile, a rain system has entered Pakistan. Quetta, Chaman, Noshki and other adjoining areas of Baluchistan have received first rainfall of the winter season. Pakistan Metrological Department has predicted rain in Karachi, parts of Punjab, Islamabad, Khyber Pakhtunkhuwa, FATA, Kashmir and Gilgit Baltistan. The environmental experts believe that the rainfall will clear the smog enveloping the cities. The Punjab government has imposed Section 144 in the province, banning the burning of crops, tyres, and garbage until further notice. Smog in the provincial capital had crossed all the international benchmarks early this week as the lever of PM 2.5, which is termed the most dangerous pollutant in the air across the world, remained between 450ug/m3 and 500ug/m3 against the notified standards of 35ug/m3 per day. As per World Health Organization standards, the daily average level of PM 2.5 should not be more than 10ug/m3 and aggregated annual mean 25ug/m3 in a day whereas as per a gazette notification of the Punjab government, the daily limit of PM2.5 is 15ug/m3 and aggregated annual mean 35ug/m3 per day.
  16. United Nations Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission in the Central African Republic (MINUSCA) peacekeepers, Central African Republic, AFP BANGUI: Seven people were killed and around 20 others were injured in a grenade attack on a peace concert and reprisal violence in Central African Republic?s capital, Bangui, on Saturday and Sunday, government officials and city residents said. The riverside city has in the past been a flashpoint for inter-religious violence that erupted between Muslims and Christians in 2013 and has since engulfed most of the impoverished, landlocked nation. Interior Minister Henri Wanzet Linguissara said two individuals on a motorcycle approached revellers attending a concert organized to foster reconciliation and social cohesion late on Saturday night and threw a grenade into the crowd. ?Following this heinous act, we have registered four deaths and 20 wounded, including four who are in serious condition and have been taken into the operating room,? he said. Heavy gunfire concentrated in and around Bangui?s PK5 neighbourhood ? a Muslim enclave in the majority Christian city ? erupted after the attack. Access to PK5 was blocked off by improvised barricades on Sunday, a Reuters witness said. ?Three of our youth were killed, apparently in reprisal because they think that the Muslims were behind the grenade attack. We deplore that attack,? said PK5 resident Habib Soule. ?We set up barricades to ensure provocateurs don?t infiltrate our neighbourhood.? A second PK5 resident and a security source, who asked not to be named, confirmed that three motorcycle taxi drivers were killed in retaliation for the concert attack. ?Even now there is sporadic gunfire in PK5 and the surrounding neighbourhoods are emptying,? said Gedeon Leki, a resident of the nearby Castors neighbourhood. ?People are afraid the Muslims could take revenge for their dead.? Nearly five years into the conflict in CAR, which has been marked by successive waves of ethnic cleansing, the security situation is worsening, particularly in the east. Bangui, where the headquarters of 12,000-troop-strong United Nations peacekeeping mission is located, has been relatively stable in recent months, and the weekend?s violence was a reminder of the city?s darkest days. ?The enemies of peace ... have just set a trap,? Prime Minister Simplice Mathieu Sarandji said in a radio address on Sunday. ?I call upon the population not to slide back into violence.? The U.N. Security Council is this week scheduled to vote on a French-drafted resolution to authorise an extra 900 troops to protect civilians in the Central African Republic.

  18. ALWAR: A man who was transporting cows near the Rajasthan-Haryana border was shot dead by unidentified men, Indian media reported. According to sources, the two men, Ummar Khan and Tahir Khan, were taking the cows in a truck from Alwar to Bharatpur when they were waylaid by a mob and assaulted. Subsequently, Ummar succumbed to the bullet wound while Tahir was left battling for life. The incident has sent ripples in the Mewat community, with locals protesting and demaning a high-level probe into the incident. Relatives of the two men alleged the crime was planned and the accused connived with the police for the assault. In April, 55-year-old Pehlu Khan was intercepted by a mob and thrashed when he was transporting cows for his small dairy farm. The man succumbed to the wounds two days after the incident. The death triggered national outrage and a demand to apprehend the right-wing vigilante groups. Later, the deceased?s son, Irshad, was falsely implicated in a case of cruelly treating cows, as per the Indian media. It has been years since some elements have been unleashing violence in different parts of India, in the name of protecting cows, which people of Hindu faith believe to be scared and holy.

  21. A nine-storey residential building partially collapsed in Izhevsk, Russia, following a suspected gas explosion. Photo: AFP MOSCOW: At least three people were killed and three others injured when a corner section of a nine-storey residential building collapsed in the provincial city of Izhevsk, Russian authorities said Thursday. "At 7:00 pm (1600 GMT) Moscow time, there were three dead and three injured," emergencies ministry representative Pyotr Fomin said in televised remarks. "One child is among the dead," added Alexander Brechalov, the head of the Udmurtia region of which Izhevsk is the capital. According to the local health ministry, a member of the rescue team was also injured. The cause of the collapse was likely a gas explosion and other residents have been evacuated from the building, emergencies ministry official Igor Kutrovsky said. A representative of the Investigative Committee, Vera Filippova, said a probe into the collapse has been launched. According to the emergencies ministry, the building collapsed in the late afternoon, and video footage showed flats on all nine floors reduced to debris, with dust rising from the pile. A total of eight apartments were completely destroyed and 220 rescuers were on the scene looking for survivors. The damaged building is a typical Soviet-era residential block made of concrete panels. "There was the sound of such a loud blast that even the building shook," a witness named Olga who lives in a neighbouring building told state television. Fomin told TASS news agency that the collapsed area had 28 residents, estimating that "not more than 10-15 people" were at home when the accident happened. The ministry sent reinforcements to Izhevsk, which is located some 940 kilometres (585 miles) east of Moscow, and has a population of about 650,000. Explosions caused by natural gas leaks are frequent in Russia, especially in older Soviet-era buildings. The last serious gas explosion in February 2016 killed seven people, including two children, when part of a block of flats collapsed in the city of Yaroslavl, north of Moscow. Another in February 2012 killed 10 people in the southern city of Astrakhan and destroyed the entire side of a nine-storey building.
  22. A visitor looks at the painting 'Olive Trees' (Saint-Remy, June/July 1889) by Dutch artist Vincent van Gogh at the Kunstmuseum in Basel, Switzerland, April 23, 2009. AFP/Nicholas Ratzenboeck/Files WASHINGTON: When a Kansas City museum put a Vincent van Gogh painting under the microscope, it found an unlikely intruder: a grasshopper trapped in the canvas's painterly whirls for 128 years. Mary Schafer ? a conservator at The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art ? came across the tiny dried, brown carcass in the lower foreground while studying the painting of olive groves. "I was mainly trying to understand the different layers of the painting and how it was constructed, and that's how I came upon part of the body of this little grasshopper," she told AFP. "The fact that we have this little surprise of a grasshopper is a fun way to have a new look at a Van Gogh." The find reflects the artist's practice of painting in the outdoors, where it was often windy enough to send dust, grass and insects flying. "I must have picked up a good hundred flies and more off the four canvases that you'll be getting, not to mention dust and sand," van Gogh mused in an 1885 letter to his brother Theo. "When one carries them across the heath and through hedgerows for a few hours, the odd branch or two scrapes across them." But Van Gogh was no bug killer. Paleo-entomologist Michael Engel of the University of Kansas told the museum's team that the grasshopper's thorax and abdomen were missing, and no sign of movement was evident in the paint around the insect, indicating it was already dead when it landed on van Gogh's canvas. "Olive Trees" is part of a series of some 18 paintings Van Gogh completed on the subject in 1889 in Saint-Remy-de-Provence, France, where he had checked himself into an asylum. He died the following year. Sand also was found in "Seascape near Les Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer" (1888), a work he is believed to have painted from the beach on the Mediterranean. It is now held at the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam. The Nelson-Atkins museum made its own find as part of an effort involving curators, conservators and outside scientists to take a fresh look at its collection of 104 French paintings and pastels using a variety of tools, including x-rays, ultraviolet light, the microscope and taking minuscule samples of the work. Looking at a tiny slice of "Olive Trees," conservation scientist John Twilley determined that van Gogh had used a type of red lake pigment that faded over time due to light exposure.
  23. Britain's Prince Charles (R) greets renowned local chef Antonio Carluccio as he tours the restored historical State Buildings in Perth, November 15, 2015. AFP/Pool/Greg Wood/Files LONDON: Celebrity chef and restaurateur Antonio Carluccio ? whose television programmes and books were credited with turning British households on to Italian cooking ? died on Wednesday aged 80. The London-based Carluccio was known for his namesake restaurant chain and his nurturing of the Naked chef Jamie Oliver, who became an even greater television star. "It is with great sadness that we announce that Commendatore Antonio Carluccio OBE sadly passed away this morning," his website said. The son of a station master, Carluccio grew up in the countryside of Italy's northwestern Piedmont region. He briefly worked as a journalist for La Stampa newspaper in Turin before moving to Vienna when he was 21 to study languages. Carluccio, however, then moved into the food and drink industry as an importer of Italian wine in Germany from 1962, moving to London in 1975. He opened the Neal Street Restaurant in central London in 1981, whose customers included Prince Charles ? the heir to the throne ? and pop star Elton John. The restaurant ? which ran for 26 years ? launched the career of Oliver, who started out there as a pastry chef. Oliver, 42, said he heard the news with "great sadness". He shared a picture on Instagram of an "inspirational" Carluccio cookbook, which first got him "hooked on pasta" and drove him to work for the Italian master. "He was such a charismatic, charming don of all things Italian! Always hanging out the front door of the restaurant with a big fat cigar, a glass of something splendid and his amazing fuzzy white hair," Oliver said. "He was an amazing food ambassador that will be sorely missed. "Cook a feast up there, mate." Overcame depression The Italian chef co-founded the British high street restaurant chain Carluccio's in 1999, which now also has outlets in the Middle East. He wrote more than 20 books about cookery, largely on Italian food, and on mushrooms ? a lifelong passion that began with his childhood foraging in rural Piedmont. His motto was "MOF MOF": minimum of fuss, maximum of flavour. In his autobiography, he revealed he had a history of depression stemming from his brother's death in 1960. He stabbed himself in the chest in 2008 in a suicide attempt. Italy made him a Commendatore ? the equivalent of a knighthood ? in 1998 for services to his homeland. In 2007, Queen Elizabeth II made him an officer of the Order of the British Empire (OBE) for his services to the country's catering industry. The Carluccio's chain said it was "incredibly saddened". "It isn't just Antonio's name above our doors, but his heart and soul lives and breathes throughout our restaurants," it added. "Antonio has been a huge inspiration to many of us and his energy, zest for life and sense of humour will be greatly missed."
