  1. Indonesian security forces carry the body of a police officer who was shot and killed near Freeport-McMoRan Inc's giant Grasberg copper mine, during his funeral in Timika, Papua province Indonesia November 15, 2017. Photo: REUTERS JAKARTA: An Indonesian police officer was killed and a second wounded on Wednesday, after both were shot in the back in an area near Freeport-McMoRan Inc?s giant Grasberg copper mine in the eastern province of Papua, police said. The officers were patrolling an area close to where a Freeport vehicle was targeted in a shooting on Tuesday, Papua police spokesman Suryadi Diaz said in a statement. A helicopter flew the men to a hospital in the nearby lowland city of Timika. The main access road to Grasberg remained closed, Freeport Indonesia spokesman Riza Pratama said, referring to a 79-mile (127-km) stretch from Timika to the mining town of Tembagapura that runs near a river rich with gold tailings from the mine upstream. A string of at least 15 separate shooting incidents in the area since mid-August that wounded at least 12 people and killed two police officers has been blamed by police on an ?armed criminal group?, but linked to separatist rebels by others. In a statement, the separatist West Papua National Liberation Army (TPN-OPM), a group linked to the Free Papua Movement, claimed responsibility for Wednesday?s incident. The group has said it is at war with police, military and Freeport. EMERGENCY MEASURES For decades, there have been sporadic attacks along the road where the shootings took place, but authorities? efforts to catch the perpetrators have been hampered by thick surrounding jungle. ?The Indonesian Military (TNI) and police have urged the Armed Separatist Movement in Papua to surrender, but until now no one has turned themselves in,? Indonesian military chief Gatot Nurmantyo said in a statement. ?Armed separatists cannot be left alone,? he said, adding that reining in such activities was the domain of the military, which was preparing ?emergency measures? in case persuasive approaches by the police and military failed. Papua has had a long-running, and sometimes violent, separatist movement since the province was incorporated into Indonesia after a widely criticised 1969 UN-backed referendum. Foreign journalists have in the past required special permission to report in Papua, and once there, have had security forces restrict their movement and work. President Joko Widodo has pledged to make the region more accessible to foreign media by inviting reporters on government-sponsored trips, although coverage remains difficult.
  2. TIMIKA: An Indonesian police officer was killed and a second wounded after being shot in an area near Freeport-McMoRan Inc?s giant Grasberg copper mine in the eastern province of Papua, a police spokesman said. The officers were shot near Tembagapura early on Wednesday, Papua police spokesman Suryadi Diaz said. There has been a string of shooting incidents since mid-August that have wounded at least eight people and killed two police officers. They have been blamed by police on an ?armed criminal group? but linked to separatist rebels by others.
  3. FBI agents search for clues at the entrance to the First Baptist Church, after a mass shooting that killed 26 people in Sutherland Springs. -AFP SUTHERLAND SPRINGS: Investigators said Monday they suspect a "domestic situation" was behind the rampage by a US Air Force veteran who killed 26 people with an assault rifle in a small-town Texas church, in the latest mass shooting to stun the United States. Ten people remained in critical condition a day after Devin Patrick Kelley, a 26-year-old private security guard, burst into the rural Baptist church during Sunday morning services and sprayed bullets at the congregation, wounding another 20. Governor Greg Abbott said meanwhile that Kelley, who was armed with an AR-15 rifle and two handguns, had been denied a gun permit in the state of Texas and should not have legally had access to weapons. President Donald Trump, who is travelling in Asia, said the United States was living in "dark times" but brushed off calls for stricter gun control, saying the latest tragedy, which left eight members of one family dead, "isn't a guns situation." The authorities said Kelley apparently died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound in his car after opening fire Sunday morning on worshippers in the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, a rural community of rolling hills and ranches of nearly 400 people near San Antonio. Kelley, who received a bad conduct discharge from the Air Force, was dressed in black and was wearing a bulletproof vest and a black mask with a skull face when he attacked the church, officials said. Two men were being lauded as heroes for chasing Kelley's vehicle after he sprayed the church with gunfire. One of the men raced out of his home across the street with his own AR-15 rifle and wounded Kelley as he emerged from the church and headed for his car in the parking lot, officials said. Freeman Martin of the Texas Department of Public Safety said the dead included an 18-month-old toddler and the oldest victim was 77. He said 10 people remained in critical condition, four were in serious condition and six were in stable condition or had been released from hospital. According to reports, eight members of the Holcombe family were among the dead, who also included the pastor's 14-year-old daughter. Sunday's carnage came just five weeks after the worst gun massacre in modern US history, the murder of 58 people by a heavily armed retired accountant who opened fire on a country music concert in Las Vegas. 'Domestic situation' Martin said the investigation was focusing on reports that Kelly had sent threatening texts to his mother-in-law, who attended the church but was apparently not there on Sunday morning. "There was a domestic situation going on with the family and in-laws," he said. "We know that he expressed anger towards his mother-in-law." Governor Abbott said the shooting was not a "random act." "Obviously the motive was completely deranged," he told CBS This Morning. "This is a man who had some mental health issues apparently long before this." According to the Air Force, Kelley served at a base in New Mexico starting in 2010 before being court-martialed in 2012 on charges of assaulting his wife and a child. He was sentenced to 12 months in confinement and received a "bad conduct" discharge in 2014, Air Force spokeswoman Ann Stefanek said. Officials said Kelley was armed with a Ruger AR-15 rifle and had two handguns in his vehicle, a Glock 9mm and a Ruger .22 but Abbott said Kelley should not have been allowed to have a gun. "He tried to get a gun permit in the State of Texas and was denied that permit," Abbott said. "Under the current system of federal law he should have been prevented to make this purchase." In-laws attended the church Kelley was from the town of New Braunfels, 30 miles from Sutherland Springs, and his in-laws attended the church, Wilson County Sheriff Joe Tackitt said. "They were not here yesterday," he said. "So we don't know why he actually showed up." Tackitt said a man living nearby engaged Kelley in a "firefight" as he was leaving the church. The resident then stopped a man in a truck, Johnnie Langendorff, and together they pursued Kelley for about 10 to 12 minutes at speeds which Langendorff said reached up to 95 miles per hour (150 kilometers per hour). "I had to catch the guy. I had to make sure he was caught," Langendorff told CNN. "There was some gunfire exchanged, I think, on the roadway also and then (Kelley) wrecked out," Tackitt said. "At this time we believe that he had a self-inflicted gunshot wound." Martin said Kelley called his father from the car before he crashed and said he was wounded and didn't think he would make it. Speaking in Tokyo as part of his Asia tour, President Trump dubbed the gunman as "deranged" and said the most recent mass shooting to hit the United States "isn´t a guns situation." "I think that mental health is your problem here," Trump told journalists when asked if gun control could reduce the rampant firearms violence plaguing the country. Late Sunday, mourners held a candlelight vigil for victims in the tiny town. "We lost a lot of good friends," said Robert Kunz, 50, owner of Sutherland Springs Tire & Battery. "I feel like the guy got what he deserved," he said. "You´re going to hate me for this, but I think they need to let the buzzards pick at him."
  4. The scene at First Baptist this afternoon (Photo: KSAT) A gunman reportedly opened fire at a church in Texas, leaving multiple victims, The Mirror reported. The incident took place at the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, a small community south-east of San Antonio. According to witnesses, a man walked into the church at around 11.30am local time. The shooter is now believed to be dead. Unconfirmed reports on social media claim that more than a dozen people have been injured during the shooting, though it is not clear yet how serious their injuries are. This is a developing story and will be updated as further reports are received.
  5. Bollywood superstar, Salman Khan, reportedly suffered health issues during the shooting of his much-awaited movie, Tiger Zinda Hai. During the shooting schedule in Austria, the 52-year-old suffered from health issues and struggled to give the perfect shot. The film director, Ali Abbas Zafar, stated that due to freezing cold in Europe the team found itself isolated from the world. In Austria, Salman couldn?t cope up with the conditions and developed a medical issue, which prolonged their stay in the country. Moreover, the cast wasn?t even prepared to deal with the freezing temperatures of the Austrian mountains. "Shooting here meant dealing with unexpected situations. Literally a lot of pain had gone behind this sequence. Salman developed a health issue, but he still trained to film here and delivered on a tough action sequence,? said the movie director, according to Indian media. "What we see onscreen might look a lot easier than it actually is. Sometimes, sequences like the ones shot in Austria can be difficult to achieve," Zafar added. The movie has been shot in Morocco, Greece, Austria and Abu Dhabi. Both Salman and Katrina play the roles of spies in the sequel to the 2012 blockbuster, Ek Tha Tiger. The movie will hit the screens on December 22.
  6. Multiple people were shot on Wednesday inside a Walmart store in a Denver suburb, local police said. Police in Thornton, Colorado, did not release any information on the number of victims and it was not clear if an assailant had been taken into custody, taken his own life or been slain by officers. ?We?ve got multiple parties down, we?re still trying to ascertain what their conditions are,? Officer Victor Avila of the Thornton Police Department told Reuters. About an hour after the initial alert the Thornton Police Department said on Twitter that the gunfire had ended at the store, which was surrounded by police and fire crews. ?At this time this is NOT an active shooter. Active crime scene. We will update as info becomes available,? the police department said in a tweet. Thornton is city of about 120,000 people roughly 10 miles (16 km) northeast of Denver. Avila said that police were called to the store and that the gunshots had ceased by the time the first officers arrived at the scene. An hour after the incident, the situation, the nature of the incident or status of the threat remained unclear, he said. US Local news reported that a woman whose son was in Walmart had told her that he had heard about 30 gunshots and was still inside. A video posted on Twitter showed the Walmart, which is situated in a large complex of big-box stores and other retail outlets adjacent to US Interstate 25, apparently empty except for police officers with guns drawn.
  7. Touted to be one of India's big prospects for a medal, Heena Sidhu left a billion fans disappointed after failing to qualify for the main event of 10m women's air pistol event at the Rio Games. A 14th-place finish and eventually an exit in the qualifying round was surely not what her fans expected from the former world no. 1, but the Indian shooter didn't just give up, she came back stronger and better than ever. © BCCL Going from strength to strength, the 28-year-old made a stellar comeback in the ISSF World Cup Finals earlier in February where she teamed up with Jitu Rai to strike gold in the mixed team event. Despite trailing in the semi-final stage, the Indian duo made a spirited comeback in the contest to win 5-3. In May, she had also won bronze in the women's 10 air pistol event at the Grand Prix of Liberation Plaza Shooting Championships in the Czech Republic. Shooting 218.8 in the eight-woman final, Heena finished third in the event which was won by Rio Olympic gold and bronze medallist, Anna Korakaki of Greece. Continuing her terrific form this year, Heena produced yet another brilliant performance to bag a gold medal at the Commonwealth Shooting Championships in Brisbane. The Indian star scored 240.8 in the women's 10m Air Pistol final to finish ahead of Australians Elena Galiabovitch (238.2) and Kristy Gillman (213.7) who finished second and third respectively. Apart from Sidhu, Deepak Kumar also gave the Indian fans a reason to cheer following his bronze-medal finish in the men's 10m Air Rifle event. In the same event, London Olympic bronze-medallist Gagan Narang - who was expected to make India proud after creating a Commonwealth record of 626.2 points in the qualification round - sadly finished fourth. Here's how Twitter lauded Heena Sidhu for her extraordinary feat: Well done, @HeenaSidhu10, on your golden effort at the Commonwealth Shooting Championship. You've made the country proud. — sachin tendulkar (@sachin_rt) October 31, 2017 Congratulations @HeenaSidhu10 on winning the gold medal at Commonwealth Shooting Championships ð¥ð#OGQ is very proud to support you ð®ð³ — OGQ (@OGQ_India) October 31, 2017 Congratulations @HeenaSidhu10 on winning Gold at the Commonwealth Shooting Championships's 10m Air Pistol event.

  8. NEW YORK: New York City police were investigating reports of gunfire and a vehicle striking people in lower Manhattan on Tuesday afternoon, and one person has been taken into custody, police officials said. Police were unable to confirm if there were any injuries, but local media reported at least five, including possible fatalities. The incident took place near the West Side Highway and Chambers Street, police said. An eyewitness said that he saw a white pick-up truck drive south down the bike path alongside the West Side Highway at full speed and hit several people. The witness, a man identified by the name ?Eugene,? said bodies were lying outside Stuyvesant High School, one of the city?s elite public schools. He also reported hearing about nine or 10 shots, but was not sure where they came from. The West Side Highway runs on the western edge of Manhattan, alongside the Hudson River.
  9. KISUMU, Kenya: Kenyan opposition supporters skirmished with police and threw up burning barricades in pockets of the country on Thursday, seeking to derail President Uhuru Kenyatta?s likely re-election with a low voter turnout. The election commission said the majority of polls had opened but voting would be delayed until Oct. 28 in four of Kenya?s 47 counties - all in the opposition-supporting west - due to ?security challenges?. The repeat election is being closely watched across East Africa, which relies on Kenya as a trade and logistics hub, and in the West, which considers Nairobi a bulwark against militancy in Somalia and civil conflict in South Sudan and Burundi. In the western city of Kisumu, police used tear gas and fired live rounds over the heads of stone-throwing youths heeding opposition leader Raila Odinga?s call for a voter boycott. Gunfire killed one protester and wounded three, a nurse said. In Homa Bay county next door, police said they shot dead one protester and injured another. Riot police fired tear gas in Kibera and Mathare, two volatile Nairobi slums. Protesters set fires and threw stones in Kibera, and in Mathare a church was firebombed. Around 50 people have been killed, mostly by security forces, since the original Aug. 8 vote. The Supreme Court annulled Kenyatta?s win in that poll on procedural grounds and ordered fresh elections; but Odinga pulled out of the rerun and urged a boycott because, he said, the poll would not be fair. In the capital, polling stations saw a sprinkling of voters instead of the hours-long queues that waited in August. With Kenyatta all but ensured a victory, eyes are on the turnout, which was nearly 80 percent in the August vote. ?We are requesting them (voters) humbly that they should turn out in large numbers,? Kenyatta, the US-educated son of Kenya?s founding father, Jomo Kenyatta, said after voting. ?We?re tired as a country of electioneering and I think it?s time to move forward.? A decade after 1,200 people were killed over another disputed election, many Kenyans feared violence could spread. As well as delayed voting, the poll is likely to trigger legal challenges to the result, stirring longer-term instability and ethnic divisions. On Wednesday, the Supreme Court was due to hear a case seeking to push back the polls. But it was unable to sit after five out of the seven judges failed to show up. ?The lack of a quorum is highly unusual for a Supreme Court hearing,? a statement from the European Union said. ?Not hearing this case has de facto cut off the legal path for remedy.? Opposition strongholds In Kisumu, the scene of major ethnic violence after a disputed election in 2007, many schools designated as polling stations were padlocked. Young men milled about outside. In Kisumu Central, constituency returning officer John Ngutai said no voting materials had been distributed and only three of 400 staff had turned up. One nervous official said his election work was a ?suicide mission?. Reuters found no polling stations open. Wafula Chebukati, head of the election commission, said counties where voting would be delayed included Homa Bay, Kisumu, Migori and Siaya. But residents were skeptical. ?Today, not a single polling station opened. People have been throwing stones all day at the police. So I don?t think people will accept that elections take place. Unless Raila says ?OK?, it won?t happen,? said social worker Christine Onyango. Kisumu businessman Joshua Nyamori, 42, was one of the few brave enough to defy Odinga?s stay-away call, but could not cast his ballot. ?Residents fear reprisal from political gangs organized by politicians. This is wrong,? he said. In the coastal city of Mombasa, protesters lit tyres and timber along the main highway. Reuters contacted 18 polling stations there, and the highest voter turn-out any of them had registered at midday was 27. ?We have seen you, we know you and we have marked you,? a group of opposition supporters shouted at voters outside a polling station. Four armed police were on guard at each station - double the number on duty last time. Yvonne Mwenesi, 21, was beaten outside another polling station before police rescued her. ?I had just voted and as I walked out, a group of men who I know attacked me saying I had betrayed them by voting,? she said, her nose bleeding. Call for prayers On the eve of the vote, Odinga backed off previous calls for protests and, speaking in English, urged supporters to stay home and hold vigils instead. Some politicians who preceded him urged in the KiSwahili language that supporters should ensure the vote did not take place. Odinga?s National Super Alliance coalition, whose supporters attacked polling staff in the run-up to the vote, could argue in court that the lack of open polling stations showed the re-run was invalid. The Supreme Court said it would annul this election too if it did not meet legal standards. The head of the election commission said last week he could not guarantee a free and fair vote, citing political interference and threats of violence. One election commissioner quit and fled the country. Another official was tortured and murdered days before the Aug. 8 vote.
  10. The shooting took place around midnight outside a dormitory at Grambling State University, a historically black public institution in the northern part of the state. Photo: AFP file WASHINGTON: A gunman shot to death a student and his friend early Wednesday on a university campus in Louisiana, and then fled, officials said. The shooting took place around midnight outside a dormitory at Grambling State University, a historically black public institution in the northern part of the state. Grambling spokesman Will Sutton told AFP the victims were identified as Grambling student Earl Andrews, 23, and his friend Monquiarious Caldwell, 23, both of Farmerville, Louisiana. Caldwell was not a student at the school. "No one else (was) hurt," Sutton added. The Lincoln Parish Sheriff´s Office did not immediately respond to requests for comment, but the shooting reportedly began after an altercation that began inside one of the dorms. Classes and business were due to take place as usual. "Grambling State University offices are open with normal business hours and students are expected to attend classes as schedule," the school announced on Twitter. The university is currently celebrating its homecoming season, with an American football game at which alumni are invited due to take place Saturday.
  11. WASHINGTON: Police arrested a gunman suspected of killing three people and wounding two Wednesday at a suburban Maryland business park before shooting another man in neighbouring Delaware. "The suspect in this incident has been located and is in police custody," the Wilmington, Delaware police department said of Radee Prince, 37. Wilmington Police Chief Robert Tracy earlier told reporters that Prince "is a dangerous individual. This person shot six people in one day" in attacks that were not random. Prince had been sought "in connection with both multiple shooting incident early this morning in Edgewood, Maryland and another shooting incident at mid-morning today" in Wilmington, Delaware, a statement from police said. Harford County Sheriff Jeffrey Gahler said three people died in the first incident at a granite business just before 9am. He confirmed a handgun was used and two other victims were transported to trauma centres in serious condition. When the shooter was still at large, several Edgewood-area schools were placed on lockdown, officials said, while the nearby set of popular Netflix show House of Cards was also reportedly secured. Gahler said Prince was associated with the company, Advanced Granite Solutions, where the first shooting occurred, near Baltimore. "This does appear to be a targeted attack, limited to that business," he said. Latest mass shooting Police were investigating Prince's connection with the firm, where all five victims of the first shooting were employed, Gahler said, declining to give further details about them. He said other people besides the five victims were on the premises when the shooting took place. Tracy said the victim in the second shooting identified the gunman. "They're known to each other and they've had some past history," he told a news conference. The suspect fled the first attack in a car registered in Delaware, Gahler said. Variety magazine reported that the set of House of Cards, which is partly filmed in Maryland, was placed on lockdown while police searched for the shooter. The executive producer of the series, Dana Brunetti, addressed the incident in a Facebook post. "Shooting near House of Cards set," Brunetti wrote. Some of the school lockdowns were later lifted, according to Harford County Public Schools. The incident was the latest mass shooting in a country where such killings have become tragically commonplace. On Oct 1, a gunman in a 32nd-floor casino hotel room rained fire down on concert-goers in Las Vegas, killing 58 and wounding more than 500. It was the deadliest shooting in recent US history. To date in 2017 there have been 286 mass shootings ? nearly one per day ? according to the online Gun Violence Archive.
  12. A gunman stormed a suburban Maryland business park Wednesday and shot five people, three of them fatally, before escaping, police officers said. Photo: AFP WASHINGTON: A gunman stormed a suburban Maryland business park Wednesday and shot five people, three of them fatally, before escaping, police officers said. A manhunt was underway for 37-year-old Radee Labeeb Prince, who was associated with the granite business where the shootings took place, said Harford County Sheriff Jeffrey Gahler. "This does appear to be a targeted attack, limited to that business," Gahler said as he confirmed there were three dead and two other victims who were transported to trauma centres in serious condition. He did not explain Prince's exact association with the business. While the sheriff told reporters that investigators do not believe anyone else was involved, "there's an individual out there on the loose who committed one of the most heinous acts we've ever seen in our county." All five victims were shot with a handgun and were employees of the business, Gahler said. The deadly attack in the town of Edgewood, about 23 miles (37 kilometres) northeast of Baltimore, is the latest mass shooting in a country where such killings have become commonplace. On October 1, a gunman in an upper-floor casino hotel room opened fire on thousands of people gathered at an outdoor country music concert in Las Vegas, killing 58 and wounding more than 500 in the deadliest shooting in recent US history. To date in 2017, there have been 285 mass shootings ? defined as four or more people shot or killed, not including the shooter ? in the United States or nearly one per day
  13. It's hard to fathom why people always choose to hate. In the age of keyboard commandos, cussing people in the spotlight is easy and comfortable. By now, the whole world knows that Dan Bilzerian was caught up in the Las Vegas mass shooting that took place on the 1st of October. The world would also “see” that Bilzerian didn't help the people around him and ran away from the shooting. Which, to be honest, is perfectly normal, considering the situation. Instead, he was actually taking cover and looking for a way to fight back. (c) Youtube A veteran even called out Bilzerian as well. (c) Youtube Just because Bilzerian put up an Instagram story, people thought that he was running away. The truth though is far from what's being reported and circulated by the general media. Bilzerian posted this video a few hours ago on his social media accounts. The video, as he mentions in the description, was being recorded by his friend who was with him during the shooting. You can clearly see Bilzerian doing his best to help the wounded and even though he had a chance to run away, he stayed back and asked the officers on the scene to hand him a gun to help them out. He showed the police his license of being a ‘sworn commissioned reserve police officer'. If this video doesn't make sense, it's hard to say what does. Now that this video is on public watch, the same websites that called Bilzerian a coward will call him a hero. Such is 2017. Such is the internet. Given the fact that the media jumped on him, Bilzerian is angry at them for all the right reasons and wrote this in the description box. “This video is from my friend's iPhone, I found out later he was recording during the Vegas shooting. I'm a sworn commissioned reserve police officer, I wouldn't normally tell you that, but I think it's important you know that for the context of this video. I am not a medic or a hero in any way, my instinct when someone is shooting at me is to get a gun and shoot back. There's a lot of media and keyboard commandos saying people who ran were cowards, this is probably the dumbest thing I've ever read, and the next time there is a mass shooting, everyone who doesn't have a gun should absolutely run, it is so sad and pathetic that I even have to clarify that in any way. I really can't believe the kinda bullshit the media is feeding people these days.” Beware of what you read and what you believe!
  14. LAS VEGAS: As more than 500 wounded flooded the hospitals of Las Vegas after the worst mass shooting in modern US history, electronic billboard advertisements urged people to give blood. The response from the community has been overwhelming, with long queues of donors snaking out the doors ? sustained with offerings of pizza and cookies. "Donors came after two in the morning when they received the news. The flow did not stop well until the evening," said Mitzy Edgecomb of United Blood Services, an agency that collects donated blood and supplies it to hospitals. "Yesterday we collected 700 donations in the Las Vegas area. Well over 1,000 people attempted to donate. We are seeing numbers not seen in a very long time," Edgecomb said outside a blood drive centre in suburban Las Vegas. Tuesday morning, when the doors opened at 9am, more than 100 people were waiting outside to give blood, and in the afternoon a dozen were still waiting. A Salvation Army truck handed out free slices of pizza. People not even wishing to donate showed up with water and homemade cookies. "Anything like this brings a community together. People are good at heart and they want to do something to help at the time when they are slightly helpless," Edgecomb said. She added she expects the flow to keep up through the weekend. "We?ve met the needs at the hospitals where some of the victims were transported. We are replenishing that supply and preparing for the days and weeks ahead," she said. Countering hate through donations At one blood drive centre, Dianne Spence, 70, lay down on a cot next to her husband Richard. She squeezes a rubber ball as a nurse inserts a needle into her arm. She is from Georgia and has lived in Las Vegas for 27 years. She is a regular blood donor and already had an appointment for Tuesday, even before Sunday?s carnage by a retired accountant named Stephen Paddock. He killed 58 people and himself, and wounded 527. Spence kept her appointment ?because it is a critical time and people need it?. She said she was proud of the way the people of Las Vegas are responding to this crisis. "Hate is just a sad symptom of fear. People are in a very rough place today," she said. "I grew up in the south and we have a lot of hate. It?s just sad, really sad." One cot further over, Sammy Rangel is talking to the nurses. He is wearing a T-shirt with the slogan "Las Vegas, We Love You" that does not quite hide all the tatoos on his body. Rangel used to be the leader of a white supremacist gang in Chicago and spend 18 years in prison. Then he founded an association called Life after Hate, which brings people like him together for social rehabilitation programs. The motives of the shooter in Las Vegas are still not known. Rangel said he is here to ?counter the message of hate with love and compassion?. And blood donations. "This is where acts of hate and terror lose, because they?re not designed to bring communities together and yet it seems that when these things happen, communities come together," said Rangel. "It?s counter-intuitive to what they´re trying to accomplish, right?" Douglas Fraser, a surgeon at University Medical Center, said he saw more than 100 patients come in after the shooting, including 20 in critical condition. He said his people are trying to help both physical and psychological injuries, and the latter take longer to heal. "The emotional strain is probably the highest right now," he said. "Right now we are just trying to help each other and the patients kind of get right through this." "Some of these wounds will heal physically but the mental aftermath is going to be for some time," he said, adding victims? families members of would also have to deal with the trauma of mass shooting.
  15. Donald Trump stands with first lady Melania Trump as he leads a moment of silence in the wake of the the mass shooting in Las Vegas at the White House in Washington, October 2, 2017/REUTERS WASHINGTON: US President Donald Trump will visit Las Vegas on Wednesday to try to soothe a city shaken by the deadliest shooting spree in modern US history in a trip that will test his ability to console a grieving nation. His trip to Las Vegas will be the first time he has had to deal directly with the tragic aftermath of deadly gun violence that has routinely claimed hundreds of lives in recent years. ?It?s a very horrible thing even to think about,? Trump told reporters on Air Force One on Tuesday. ?It?s really horrible.? Stephen Paddock, a 64-year-old retiree with no criminal record, was identified as the gunman in Sunday night?s mass shooting, spraying bullets from the window of his 32nd-floor room at the Mandalay Bay hotel in Las Vegas. Authorities said 59 people were killed and more than 500 injured from a crowd of thousands gathered to watch an outdoor country music festival. Paddock?s motive remained a mystery. ?He?s a sick man, a demented man. A lot of problems, I guess. We are looking into him very, very seriously. But we?re dealing with a very, very sick individual,? Trump said of Paddock on Tuesday. Trump has had mixed success in the traditional role of ?consoler-in-chief.? He inflamed racial tensions in the aftermath of a white-supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virgina, and he has struggled to strike the right tone in responding to hurricane devastation in Puerto Rico. Visiting Puerto Rico on Tuesday, Trump said jokingly that the recovery from Hurricane Maria there was blowing the US budget ?a little out of whack.? He spent most of his day meeting with people charged with responding to the crisis than with people affected by it. The Las Vegas shooting has reignited a debate in Washington and across the country about whether more gun control legislation might have prevented what happened. Republicans who control the US Congress have shown little inclination to respond to Democratic appeals for gun measures, although momentum appears to have slowed for legislation that would make it easier to buy gun silencers. On the campaign trail last year, Trump aligned himself with gun rights advocates who consider the US Constitution?s Second Amendment right to bear arms sacrosanct. Asked on Tuesday whether it was time to debate gun control measures, Trump said: ?Perhaps that will come. But that?s not for now.? Trump has responded to the Las Vegas massacre by holding a moment of silence on the White House South Lawn and ordering flags lowered to half-staff. He called the shootings ?an act of pure evil.? In Las Vegas, the president will grieve with friends and family of the victims, offer support for the wounded and thank first responders, the White House said. Trump has some strong ties to the desert city. He helped build the luxury Trump International Hotel, where he stays when he visits, and was a frequent visitor during the presidential campaign last year. He lost the state to Democrat Hillary Clinton in the November 2016 presidential election.
  16. WASHINGTON: US online giants acknowledged Tuesday they failed to prevent rumours and misinformation from being circulated during and after the deadly mass shooting in Las Vegas. Facebook, Google and Twitter said they were working on fixes after learning of fake news ending up in feeds and searches following the shooting that killed 59 and injured over 500 people. Some rumours identified the wrong person as the shooter, others named a search for a female person of interest described as a "Trump-hating Rachel Maddow fan," referring to an MSNBC host who is a fierce critic of President Donald Trump. After news outlets pointed out false reports from the 4chan message board were appearing at the top of Google search results, the internet giant said it acted to correct the problem. "Within hours, the 4chan story was algorithmically replaced by relevant results," Google said in an email to AFP. "This should not have appeared for any queries, and we´ll continue to make improvements to prevent this from happening in the future." Facebook said it discovered a false news story on the shooting and acted to remove it. "However, its removal was delayed by a few minutes, allowing it to be screen captured and circulated online," Facebook said. "We are working to fix the issue that allowed this to happen in the first place and deeply regret the confusion this caused." Twitter said it too was stepping up efforts to weed out false reports on the shooting. "We are aware of this issue and are proactively taking action on content that violates our terms of service," a Twitter spokesman said. The online giants have faced increasing pressure to prevent manipulation of their platforms after revelations of Russian-led efforts to spread misinformation ahead of the 2016 US election. In Las Vegas, Stephen Paddock, a 64-year-old gambler and retired accountant, was identified as the shooter who fired on a huge crowd at an outdoor country music concert before killing himself. Investigators are trying to establish a motive for the deadliest mass shooting in recent US history, but so far have been unable to pin down what drove Paddock to shoot into the crowds from a 32nd floor hotel room.
  17. Former Indian skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni has been on a roll for the past couple of days. Be it sleeping on the field or at the airport floor or slaying the Australian team in the first ODI like a true boss, you can trust Dhoni to literally do anything and proudly walk away after the victory like it was child's play. We were not even close to exaggerating when we said that this man can do anything and this video is a proof of that. Well, it seems that finishing matches with his unparalleled and impeccable skills isn't the only talent he's got; this man has got some killer shooting skills as well. Yesterday, this badass cricketer visited the Kolkata Police Shooting Range to brush up on his shooting skills (after the team's practice session was cancelled due to rains) and we must say we are highly impressed. Kolkata Police shared a video on their Facebook page where Dhoni is seen firing a couple of rounds and even the police officers accepted that “his accuracy is breathtaking!” Kolkata Police in their post wrote, “Our inbox is getting flooded with requests of posting a video clip of MS Dhoni sharpening his shooting skills this afternoon at our range at Police Training School. Here goes.” Check out the video here. Reportedly, Dhoni even had an interaction with the Kolkata Police recruits and inspired them with his words. According to a report published in the Indian Express, a police official was quoted as saying “It's a state of art shooting range at PTS and Dhoni shot both in the 10 m and 25 ranges.” It was further mentioned, “It's great to host Dhoni for the second time. He's an extraordinary marksman and inspired us all.” In the first ODI, India defeated Australia by 26 runs taking a lead of 1-0.

Image Courtesy: Seattle Times/KHQ via AP LOS ANGELES: One student was killed and at least three other people were wounded Wednesday in a shooting in a school in the northwest of the United States, according to officials quoted by local media. The shooting took place in a high school in the town of Spokane in Washington state, 460 kilometres (285 miles) from Seattle. Fire department spokesman Brian Schaeffer told local media that one student had been killed and that three others were admitted to a nearby hospital in a stable condition. The shooter has been arrested, according to the Spokane sheriff's office. Some media reported a total of six people had been hit by bullets, including the deceased. The sheriff's office said on its Twitter account that police were "going room to room, floor by floor. We understand parents are extremely concerned. We will provide info ASAP, please avoid area." Other schools in the area were closed as a precautionary measure.
  19. Last year, the box office was primarily ruled by Marathi movie ‘Sairat' and if the song ‘Zingaat' still rings in your head, then you will know that this movie's popularity is no joke. Well, fast forward to the present time and ‘Sairat' is still making headlines, this time for its Bollywood remake starring Sridevi's daughter Jhanvi Kapoor and Shahid Kapoor's brother Ishan Khattar. Reports of the movie being remade in Hindi had been doing rounds for quite some time and will be produced by Karan Johar, under his banner Dharma Productions. © Zee Studios Well, in recent developments, according to a report in DNA, the shooting of the movie will begin in November this year and Jhanvi has already started preparing for the role, attending dance and acting classes. Time and again people have blown the trumpet of Nepotism in the negative direction, but that does not deter the star kids from showing what they are capable of. Apart from Jhanvi, Saif Ali Khan's daughter Sara Ali Khan too is having her dream debut opposite Sushant Singh Rajput in Abhishek Kapoor's directorial venture ‘Kedarnath', shooting of which started last week. © Instagram/Jhanvi Kapoor Nagraj Manjule's film ‘Sairat' has already set the benchmark really high and the credit entirely goes to the exceptional acting of the cast and their interesting take on honour killing and caste system. While actors Rinku Rajguru and Akash Thosar nailed it in the original, it will be interesting to see how Jhanvi and Ishaan stand out in this film. The film talks about two college sweethearts who belong to different castes and the struggles they go through when their relationship falls prey to the stringent practices of casteism. Jhanvi will be debuting with this remake, Ishaan is a film old as he has already completed shooting for Majid Majidi's ‘Beyond The Clouds'. This film is being directed by Shashank Khaitan, who is known for making ‘Badrinath Ki Dulhania'.
  20. DALLAS: A gunman killed seven people at a home in a Dallas suburb on Sunday evening before being shot dead by police called to the scene, authorities said. The shooting took place in Plano, a suburb north of Dallas. David Tilley, a spokesman for the Plano Police Department, said the shooter was killed by the first responding officer after an exchange of gunfire. The officer was not injured. Seven people were found dead in the Plano home. Two additional shooting victims were taken to a local hospital. Their condition was unknown. ?We?re trying to put all the puzzle pieces together,? Tilley said. There was no information yet on the relationship between the suspect and the victims. Local media reports that the shooting occurred at a Dallas Cowboys viewing party could not be confirmed either.
  21. ABUJA: Gunmen killed 11 people and wounded 18 others in a church in southeastern Nigeria on Sunday in an attack arising from a feud between members of the local community, officials said. However, police believe that a man the gunmen were hunting for was not present in the church and so escaped the attack. The attackers struck the church in Ozubulu early in the morning, said Garba Umar, head of police in Anambra state. They were believed to have been trying to kill a local man, who was not identified by the authorities. "The gunmen came thinking that their target was in the church but incidentally he was not," Umar said, adding that the violence may be linked to drug-trafficking. No arrests have been made, he said. Anambra State Governor Willie Obiano said the attack stemmed from a feud between members of the local community who were living outside Nigeria. "We are not going to relent until we bring those that perpetrated this heinous crime to book," he said. Nigeria is wracked by insecurity, with militant group Boko Haram having killed more than 20,000 people since 2009, sparking one of the world's largest humanitarian crises. Ethnically-charged violence is common throughout the central states and militancy is a constant threat in the oil-rich southeast.
  22. Attacks on churches are rare in southern Nigeria, where there is a predominantly Christian population. ? AFP FILE WARRI, Nigeria: Twelve worshippers were shot dead at a church in southeast Nigeria on Sunday, with authorities suggesting the bloodshed was due to a local feud. At around 6:00 am (0500 GMT) at least one gunman opened fire at St. Philip's church in Ozubulu, near the city of Onitsha, unleashing terror on the congregation. Chukwuma Emeka said he had just stepped out of the church to stretch his legs "when I heard gunshots and screaming and people running inside." "When the chaos subsided I went inside, I saw my fellow church members dead in a pool of their own blood and many others were screaming in pain." Attacks on churches are rare in southern Nigeria, where there is a predominantly Christian population. There were varying accounts of what happened in Ozubulu. Witnesses said five gunmen in masks stormed the church, but police said the killing was the work of a lone shooter. "So far, 12 persons have been confirmed dead and deposited in the mortuary here," a worker at Nnamdi Azikwe University Teaching Hospital told AFP. Several worshippers with gunshot wounds were also receiving treatment at the hospital, the source said. Witnesses said they feared that up to 20 people may have died. 'Feud' Garba Umar, Anambra State police Commissioner, said the attacker was a gunman who "went on a shooting spree, killing and wounding" worshippers. He said the violence was the result of a failed murder attempt, tied to a feud within the local community. "The information at the disposal of the police is that the gunman had been hired to kill a particular family person believed to be among the worshippers," he said. Local rights activist Emeka Umeagbalasi said his information about the motive largely concurred with that of the police version. The gunmen had gone to kill the son of a local chief but failed to find him at his home, Umeagbalasi said. The attackers then went to the church to hunt for him, but could not find the intended target and became angry, he said. They opened "fire on parishioners and shot indiscriminately," he said, adding that the father of the intended target was shot and wounded. Speaker of Nigeria's House of Representatives Yakubu Dogara called the attack "barbaric... the height of wickedness." He extended his condolences to families of the victims, assuring them that the government would do everything within its power to track down those responsible.
  23. A Kurdish Iraqi man armed with an M16 automatic rifle opened fire in a packed nightclub in southern Germany early Sunday after a dispute there, killing a bouncer and wounding four people before being shot by police. The 34-year-old attacker "was critically injured in a shootout with police officers as he left the disco, and later succumbed to his wounds in hospital," police said in a statement. "Nothing suggest that there could have been a terror background" to the attack at the club, said prosecutor Johannes-Georg Roth.suggest that there could have been a terror background" to the attack at the club, said prosecutor Johannes-Georg Roth. "Rather, everything points to a personal dispute that had escalated in an unspeakable manner," he added. The foreign gunman had been living in Germany since 1991, having obtained asylum status. He was the son-in-law of the owner of the nightclub called "Grey", and was known to police for previous violations including grievous bodily harm."Grey", and was known to police for previous violations including grievous bodily harm. Investigators piecing together the assault said the man had initially left the site after a "fight with an employee at the disco" and gone home to pick up the US-made M16 rifle. "He came back and shot dead the bouncer at the entrance area of the disco," recounted Roth, adding that the attacker sprayed the area with bullets. He then engaged in a shoot-out with police before being shot. One officer injured in the exchange of fire only escaped alive thanks to the titanium helmet he was wearing, added police. Officials saluted the bravery of the officers, saying their actions likely saved more lives as the "many magazines were found" at the site. 'Club was jam-packed' Officers began receiving emergency calls from terrified clubbers at around 4:30 am (0230 GMT) as the man began shooting in the nightclub heaving with "several hundred" people, said police. An unnamed clubber was quoted by Suedkurier daily that he was in the washroom when someone came in and closed the toilet door saying there was shooting. "I didn't believe it and went out. But I heard shots and quickly ran back to the toilet and closed the door with another person. With us was a bouncer who was shot and he was bandaging the wound with a belt," said the witness. A bartender then opened the emergency exit door, allowing revellers to flee, he said, adding that he saw another person with a wound in the leg lying on the grass by the parking lot. "I just shouted at everyone to run and when we were in the parking lot, we heard shots again," he said. The shooting in Constance, which borders Switzerland, came just two days after Germany was shaken by a knife attack in the northern port city of Hamburg. A 26-year-old Palestinian had killed one and injured six in an assault at a supermarket. Germany has been on high alert about the threat of a militant attack, especially since last December's truck rampage through a Berlin Christmas market that claimed 12 lives. But it has also been hit by other assaults unrelated to the militant threat. Among the deadliest in recent years is a Munich shopping mall rampage last June by 18-year-old German-Iranian man which left 10 people dead including the gunman himself.
  24. Brazilian elementary school teachers receive instruction on how to react in high-risk situations in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on July 10, 2017. AFP/Mauro Pimentel RIO DE JANEIRO: Teachers in violence-wracked Rio de Janeiro started a new course on Monday ? they are learning how to react to the shootings and violence plaguing the host city of last year's Olympic Games. Some 40 teachers attended the course organised by the International Committee of the Red Cross, and each educator will go back and instruct colleagues in their own schools on how to deal with a variety of violent incidents. "It's a question of knowing how to manage each situation ? how to react during a shooting, for example. These are simple courses of action that can make a real difference," said Lorenzo Caraffi, regional director of the ICRC in Latin America. Rio has more than 1,500 public schools, a third of them located in areas deemed to be at risk from violence. Since the start of the academic year, only seven of 120 school days have passed without at least one of the city's schools being shut down because of outbreaks of violence. Rio is in the grip of an increasingly bloody war between rival drug gangs operating in its favelas ? the poorer communities that lack adequate infrastructure or police, but which are home to a quarter of the city's six million inhabitants. Residents can all too often find themselves pinned down by gunfire, especially when the quasi-military police force battles with gangs in pitched shootouts. On Monday, as the first class on dealing with violence began, 18 schools were closed due to a police raid on the City of God favela, made famous in the movie of the same name by director Fernando Meirelles, who also orchestrated the opening ceremony of last year's Olympics. "The situation has really got much worse recently, so it's important to have extra tools available to deal with these chaotic situations," said Emiliane Tinoco, one of the educators taking part in the course. Tinoco coordinates human resources for schools in Rio's poorer northern zone where 13-year-old Maria Eduarda was killed by a stray bullet in her school on March 30. "Teachers know from experience that when a shooting breaks out, you have to lead the kids into a corridor and lie down. But they often feel very alone when faced with these stressful situations," she said. The daily newspaper O Globo said that 632 people had been hit by stray bullets in Rio between January 1 and July 2, an average of three a day. Sixty-seven of them died of their wounds. "We are not going to solve the problem from one day to the next, but we can't just do nothing," said Rio's public schools chief Cesar Benjamin. "Education is like Stalingrad ? it's the last bastion which must be defended whatever the cost," he said, referring to the World War II battle in the former Soviet Union.
  25. Sometimes, the most impromptu jam session could lead to the creation of unimaginable music. This was the case for Pune-based teen duo, Zephyr and Sayan. One uneventful day at the studio led to the creation of the music producer-vocalist duo's latest track, titled Only You. Better known by their stage name, Zephyrtone, the two who are born and raised in Pune are giving the city some of the best electronic music at the moment. The youngsters who bring to the scene a fresh pair of ears to music and create something unique to themselves, have been performing together since 2015, when their eponymous label came to be. With Sayan's production techniques and Zephyr's vocals, the two have got a good thing going, musically as they create an exceptional soundscape of covers as well as original tracks. © Facebook And their debut EP, titled ‘Shooting Stars' does all the justice to the musicians behind the music. And while their EP has taken the scene by storm, it's their latest release, Only You, that is our latest talking point. Compared to their previous releases which pack high-energy vocal and sets, “Only You” tones it down a few notches. An emotionally driven song, Only You brings about a sense of euphoric melancholy with a vibe that people can connect to easily. It is a simple track which speaks and deals with regular ups and downs that people face in a relationship and can relate to with their own lives. © Zephyrtone You can watch the video here: The music video for the track has already crossed 1.5 million views and over 10,000 shares on their Facebook page. To add to that, the Magnetiax Crew, the Semi-Finalist dance group from India's Got Talent went ahead and conjured a cool dance choreography for the song and it's worth a watch! We can't wait to see what these two have stored up their sleeves for their listeners in the near future.
