  • At least 20 people killed in Baghdad bombing

    At least 20 people have died after a suicide bombing on a busy commercial street in Baghdad today (Thursday).

    At least 20 people killed in Baghdad bombing: The bombing has put an end to months of relative calm in the capital. The incident happened in an open-air market this morning with 20 dead and 40 injured according to an interior ministry official. In the rare “twin suicide” mission the first man said he felt sick which gathered people round him. He then detonated his explosives.

    A statement from the ministry said as people rushed to help the injured the second man detonated his device. Earlier on Thursday, military spokesman Yahya Rasool claimed that the two suicide bombers detonated their explosives as they were being pursued by security forces. The market, on Tayaran Square, had been busy after lockdown, with people shopping for clothes.

    Paramedics worked on the injured while police sealed off the area. The last suicide bombing took place in June 2019 and since then it has been relatively quiet. In January 2018, a suicide bombing in Tayaran Square killed more than 30 people, just a few months before the last parliamentary election.

  • Ferris Wheel ‘bunk up’ could lead to three years in Jail for Eric & Lori Harman

    A couple has been accused of having sex on a Ferris Wheel and posting the raunchy ride on a porn site.

    Eric Harmon, from Lexington, South Carolina, and Lori Harmon, of Garden City, South Carolina, face up to three years behind bars after being arrested for performing an alleged ‘sex act’ while riding the fairground attraction.

    The couple, both aged 36, have been accused of indecent exposure by police in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina after cops said they found a video of the romp on popular porn sites.

    The alleged incident happened on January 12 on the SkyWheel seafront attraction in the town, and the Harmons were arrested by the Horry County Sheriff’s Office on Saturday.

    A company spokesperson described the allegations as ‘extremely disturbing’.

    ‘SkyWheel Myrtle Beach prides itself in providing a safe, family friendly attraction and atmosphere’, officials said in a statement.

    ‘This incident that we are just becoming aware of is extremely disturbing. We have not been notified yet from the authorities regarding this incident, but are ready to cooperate in any way we can.

    These actions do not reflect our values, and we do not tolerate any behavior that does not coincide with our family-friendly environment.’

    The Harmons each face up to three years in prison on the charge if found guilty.

  • Cross Border Cooperation measures announced between Spain & Portugal

    Spain and Portugal announced a series of measures on Saturday to strengthen cross-border cooperation, including better access to health and social services for citizens living along their shared 750-mile border.

    Following an annual summit in Guarda, Portugal, the prime ministers of both countries said a new identity card would allow people working on the other side of the border to access health services there.

    The measures are aimed at helping 1.6 million Portuguese and 3.4 Spanish inhabitants along the border, which comprises some of the poorest districts in both countries.

    At a press conference after the summit, Portuguese Prime Minister Antonio Costa said ambulance services would operate across both countries so that patients could be served by the nearest vehicle, whether from Portugal or Spain.

    Other measures expected include bilingual schools and a joint centre for combating fires. A full package will be announced by the end of the day on Saturday.

    The border has remained open to workers and transport of goods between mid-March to July 1, despite the coronarivus pandemic. But it was closed to tourists, hurting local businesses reliant on tourism. [L8N2E826K]

    “I am in Portugal every day. Everyone knows me,” said Florencio Ramos Ramos from Spain who sells wild mushrooms in his shop in the tiny municipality of Salamanca.

    “But we’ve always been a disadvantaged zone – both the Portuguese side, and the Spanish,” he told Portuguese broadcaster RTP.
