Ghana Plantain stuffed with cocaine seized in UK

First it was the biggest cannabis haul seizure at the UK Heathrow airport but British officials said they have intercepted another drug consignment smuggled from Ghana.

The UK Border Force says it has seized a consignment of cocaine weighing about 7.5 kilos. The agency found the consignment on Tuesday September 25, 2012 hidden inside plantains, within a larger freight consignment of fruit from Ghana.

The cocaine was found hidden inside plantains, within a larger freight consignment of fruit and vegetables from Ghana.

“The plantains had been hollowed out and the skins resealed in an attempt to conceal the powder inside,” the Home Office described.

The class A drugs could have had a potential value of approximately £750,000 if cut and sold on the street in the UK, according to British authorities.

It revealed that the “consignment had come on the same service from Accra”, but had arrived a day later than the cannabis.

Border Force officers at Heathrow are therefore linking the cocaine seizure at the airport to the massive haul of cannabis found the day before.

Marc Owen, Heathrow Director for Border Force, said “It seems likely that the same criminal gangs were involved in both of these two smuggling attempts. This means that in just two days we have put a £5million dent in their profits.”

“These two seizures demonstrate the success we’re having in disrupting criminal smugglers and keeping illegal drugs off the streets of the UK,” Owen added.

On September 24, 2012, the Border Force officers discovered 1.5 tonnes of cannabis, with a street value of around £4.3million, in three separate freight containers which had also originated in Accra, Ghana.

The seizure was the largest of its kind at Heathrow in several years.

Child was killed in Kenya church grenade attack

Kenya has suffered a series of grenade attacks since it sent troops across the border into Somalia last year in pursuit of Islamist al Shabaab militants who it blamed for kidnapping its security personnel and Western tourists.

The attack on the church came days after Kenyan troops launched a surprise offensive on the southern Somali port of Kismayu, the last stronghold of the al Shabaab, forcing the rebels to flee.

Police said attackers threw the grenade into the Sunday school service in St. Polycarp’s church on Nairobi’s Juja Road.

The grenade exploded, spraying the children with shrapnel and fatally injuring the boy.

“We suspect this blast might have been carried out by sympathizers of al Shabaab,” said deputy police spokesman Charles Owino.

“These are the kicks of a dying horse since, of late, Kenyan police have arrested several suspects in connection with grenades,” he added.

Masked assailants launched simultaneous gun and grenade raids on two churches in the northern town of Garissa in July, killing at least 17 people.

Muslim protesters destroyed Buddhist temples and homes in Bangladesh

Members of the Buddhist minority in the Cox’s Bazar area in the southeast of the country said unidentified people were bent on upsetting peaceful relations between Muslims and Buddhists.

Muslims took to the streets in the area late on Saturday to protest against what they said was a photograph posted on Facebook that insulted Islam.

The protesters said the picture had been posted by a Buddhist, and they marched to Buddhist villages and set fire to temples and houses.

Police said they had deployed extra security forces and banned gatherings in Buddhist-dominated areas.

“We brought the situation under control before dawn and imposed restrictions on public gatherings,” said Salim Mohammad Jahangir, district police superintendent for Cox’s Bazar.

Many people in predominantly Muslim Bangladesh have been angered in recent days by a film made in America that mocked the Prophet.

Home Minister Mohiuddin Khan Alamgir described the attacks on temples as a “premeditated and deliberate attempt” to disrupt harmony.

Alamgir also promised to rebuild the Buddhist monasteries and temples, and compensate those whose houses were torched.

Muslims in Bangladesh and beyond have also been outraged by violence over the border in Myanmar where members of the majority Buddhist community clashed with minority Muslims this year.

Police had escorted the man accused of posting the insulting photograph and his mother to safety, police superintendent Jahangir said.

Sohel Sarwar Kajal, the Muslim head of the council in the area where the arson took place, said he was trying to restore communal peace.

“We are doing everything possible to quell tension and restore peace between the communities,” he told reporters.

Over 100 Buddhists staged a silent protest in the capital Dhaka on Sunday afternoon against the attacks on their temples.

Should I stay or run?

“I´m dating a Nigerian guy, but I don´t know if he is Igbo or Yoruba. The thing is, he is extremely romantic, sweet, likes to cook, clean, etc. but he gets angry for small things. He has to have the last word for everything... Including my hair color and style, the nail´s color, clothes, friends, etc... He controls everything... Common! He is very religious and smart but the last thing he did was he showed me a picture of the wedding dress he wants me to wear... I´m confused because he is a mix of romance and control at the same time, but he respects me and pampers me too much.. SHOULD I RUN AWAY OR STAY??”

This woman need your advice,what do you think?

Gadhafi's Captor Tortured and Killed

One of the men who pulled Moammar Gadhafi from a drainpipe last year has been buried after he was kidnapped by Gadhafi supporters and tortured, later dying of his injuries.

Omran Ben Shaaban's body was flown back to Libya by private jet on Tuesday from France, where he'd been receiving medical attention.

Video posted on internet showed thousands of mourners at a Misrata sports stadium Tuesday night. The Libyan government said it would give the 22-year-old a funeral fit for a hero. A photo was also posted of Shaaban in wooden casket, his face visible through a glass window.

Shaaban and three friends were attacked and kidnapped by Gadhafi loyalists in July near the southern town of Bani Walid, where many Gadhafi supporters still live. Relatives told the Associated Press Shaaban was shot twice and paralyzed from the waist down. When Libya's president Mohammed el-Megarif managed to get Shaaban and two of his friends released this month, Shaaban was "skin and bones."

 "It was clear he was beaten a lot," his brother Abdullah Shaaban told the AP. "His entire chest was sliced with razors. His face had changed. It wasn't my brother that I knew."

Shaaban was then flown to France for treatment, but he died on Tuesday.

The AP reports that Shaaban belonged to a coalition of militias called Libya Shield, sanctioned and supported by the Defense Ministry.

He reportedly never received the $800,000 reward for capturing Gadhafi last October, but his brother said Shaaban considered it his duty.

Gadhafi was found hiding in a drainage pipe near his birthplace Sirte. He was dragged out and violently carried away during which time he was killed. Video posted by the aggregator Storyful appears to show Shaaban carrying a pistol while a bloodied Gadhafi pleads for his life.

 Libya's congress has vowed to track down Shaaban's kidnappers. A militia commander said they would take matters into their own hands if the authorities fail.

"We will take revenge militarily but legitimately," Walid Ben Shaaban told Agence France-Presse.

"We will give the authorities an opportunity to tackle the issue but if they fail to act, we know how to make our move."

Hong Kong businessman offers $65 million to anyone who can marry his daughter

A Hong Kong shipping magnate has offered quite a bounty for a potential husband for his daughter after rumors began flying that she eloped with her lover in Paris earlier this year.

Cecil Chao Sze-tsung told the BBC that his daughter, 33-year old Gigi Chao, is a “very good woman with both talent and looks”, and that he just wants to find a suitable partner for her. Offering up $65 mil may not be the best way to go about finding “suitable”, but there will no doubt be a large group of men willing to step up and claim it.

Chao insists that reports of his daughter having married girlfriend of seven years Sean Eav are false and that she just needs a good man. He also said that aside from the cash, he will help out the potential suitor in starting a successful business venture.

“It is an inducement to attract someone who has the talent but not the capital to start his own business,” Mr Chao said. “I don’t mind whether he is rich or poor. The important thing is that he is generous and kind-hearted.”

Despite his pleas for a traditional marriage, Chao says he would never force his daughter into something she didn’t want to go along with.

wow,65 million dollar,i swear,i am ready,what else am i waiting for,if you need the man phone number,you can contact

John Terry found guilty for racially abusing Anton Ferdinand.

John Terry found guilty for racially abusing Anton Ferdinand and has been fined £220,000 after being found guilty of the charge by an independent regulatory panel.

Terry was adjudged to have used insulting words towards Ferdinand which included "a reference to colour and/or race contrary to FA Rule E3[2]" during Chelsea's 1-0 Premier League defeat at Loftus Road on October 23, 2011.

The legal team acting for John Terry, who has always denied the charge, has confirmed that the defender is considering an appeal against the decision, reached after a four-day hearing.

A statement read: "John Terry is disappointed that the FA Regulatory Commission has reached a different conclusion to the clear not guilty verdict of a court of law.

"He has asked for the detailed written reasons of the decision and will consider them carefully before deciding whether to lodge an appeal."

Terry has 14 days to appeal within receipt of the FA panel's written judgement, which is expected to be published early next week.

The suspension and fine are suspended until the outcome of any appeal, meaning Terry is still available to play for Chelsea for their next few games at least. The European champions' next fixture is against Arsenal at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

Terry was found not guilty in a magistrates' court in July of a racially-motivated public order offence with the prosecution unable to prove he had called Ferdinand a "fucking black cock" as an insult. Terry admitted using the words, but insisted he had only been repeating words he thought Ferdinand had accused him of saying.

However, the burden of proof of the FA's own action was lower than that of the magistrate. Terry has been found guilty on the balance of probabilities, rather than the measure of beyond reasonable doubt used by the law courts.

A statement from Chelsea read: "Chelsea Football Club notes and respects today's decision by the Football Association regarding John Terry.

"We also recognise that John has the right to appeal that decision. It is therefore inappropriate for us to comment further on the matter at this time."
