South Africa Hit By Deadly Easter Church Collapse



At least 13 people have died and many were injured when a wall collapsed in South Africa at the start of an Easter service at a Pentecostal church.

Emergency services said that 29 people were rushed to hospital after the collapse in the coastal province of KwaZulu-Natal.

Local officials have blamed the tragedy on heavy rainfall in the area around eMpangeni on Thursday night.

Most of the victims were reportedly women sleeping in the church.

An 11-year-old girl is thought to be among them.

The wall at the front of the Pentecostal Holiness Church collapsed at the start of what had been planned as a weekend-long service to commemorate the Christian festival of Easter.

On Friday, a special prayer service was held in a large tent in front of the church.

The Reverend Thulasizwe Buthelezi, the mayor of Zululand municipality, said the community was devastated and they would be praying for those affected by the tragedy.

"Christians [from] all denominations - we are here in solidarity. We are here to pray with the church, to pray with the families and to offer our support that God may really heal their wounds."

Labour Minister Mildred Oliphant is a member of the church and was planning to attend the Good Friday service there.

She visited the scene and said: "Even at this difficult time, we still need to trust in God."

Custom officers at Hong Kong International Airport have recovered more than half of a kilogram of cocaine from a Nigerian traveller who had allegedly hidden the drug in her body.

The 37-year-old Nigerian arrived in the city on a flight from Lagos via Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

Customs officers intercepted the suspect, who claimed to be a businesswoman and was said to be acting suspiciously, shortly after her arrival on Thursday.

She was taken to Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Yau Ma Tei for a check-up and confirmed to have foreign objects in her body.

Officers first recovered 215 grams of cocaine contained in condoms and plastic bags found in her vagina.

She later discharged 24 capsules of cocaine, each weighing 14 grams, from her body.

The haul, weighing 550 grams in total, was estimated to be worth HK$522,000 (US$66,900).

The authorities said the woman, who was detained for inquiries, may discharge more drugs.

She was later charged with one count of trafficking in dangerous drugs.

Peru's Ex-President Attempts Suicide Before Arrest

Peru's Ex-President Attempts Suicide Before Arrest




Peru's former President Alan García has shot himself as police came to arrest him. Casimiro Ulloa hospital in the capital, Lima, said he was in surgery where he was being treated for "a bullet wound to his head".

Mr García is accused of taking bribes from Brazilian construction company Odebrecht - claims he has repeatedly denied.

Officers had been sent to arrest him in connection with the allegations.

Interior Minister Carlos Morán told reporters that when police arrived, Mr Garcia asked to make a phone call and went into a room and closed the door.

Minutes later, a shot rang out, Mr Morán said.

Police forced the door open and found Mr Garcia sitting on a chair with a bullet wound to his head.

Health minister Zulema Tomás said Mr García's condition was "very serious and critical", and that he had to be resuscitated after suffering three cardiac arrests.

"Let's pray to God to give him strength," the former president's lawyer Erasmo Reyna reportedly told journalists at the hospital.

Mr García served as president from 1985 to 1990 and again from 2006 to 2011.

R Kelly Could Be Jailed Over Child Support Again

R Kelly Could Be Jailed Over Child Support Again



R Kelly could soon be thrown back into jail after reportedly failing to pay child support to his ex-wife.

The R&B singer, who is facing a string of sexual assault charges, which he denies, was jailed in March after failing to cough up his monthly payments to ex Andrea Kelly.

She shares three children with her ex, Joann, 21, Jay, 19, and Robert Jr, 17. At the time, it was said that he had racked up a delinquency of $161,633.

Now, TMZ reports that he's missed his last two months of child support payments. He is required to pay $20,833 a month to his ex.

After being jailed in March, not long after he was arrested on sexual abuse charges, Kelly was released after he cleared his debt.

His missed payments were actually covered by someone else.

After getting out, Kelly went to court and asked a judge to lower his $20k a month payments, claiming he could no longer afford them.

The judge agreed to hear Kelly's arguments, but that won't happen until May 8.

French Priest Known For Helping In Attacks Is An Hero Again For Saving Holy Relic In Notre Dame Fire

French Priest Known For Helping In Attacks Is An Hero Again For Saving Holy Relic In Notre Dame Fire





A French priest who helped the wounded in the Bataclan terror attack on Paris and who survived an ambush in Afghanistan also emerged as a hero of the Notre Dame fire today.

Jean-Marc Fournier, chaplain of the Paris Fire Brigade, rushed straight for the relics housed in the cathedral to rescue the Blessed Sacrament and the Crown of Thorns relics from the blazing building on Monday night.

It was feared that both religious artefacts would be lost as flames engulfed the medieval building, but Father Fournier made sure they were taken to safety.

Four years ago he also comforted the wounded after the worst terrorist attack on Paris this century when 89 people were massacred at the Eagles of Death Metal concert in 2015.

During his time as an army chaplain, Father Fournier, survived an ambush in which 10 soldiers were killed.


Rappers Demand Fox News Presenter Is Fired For Mocking Nipsey Hussle

Rappers Demand Fox News Presenter Is Fired For Mocking Nipsey Hussle

Rappers Demand Fox News Presenter Is Fired For Mocking Nipsey Hussle




Calls have mounted from rappers demanding Fox News fire host Laura Ingraham for her insensitive coverage of Nipsey Hussle’s funeral.

On Friday, just after Hussle’s funeral, Ingraham joked about a 2016 song by artist YG called “FDT,” or “Fuck Donald Trump,” in which Hussle was featured.

Ingraham misleadingly stated that Hussle had released the song, making no reference to YG before airing part of the music video in which Hussle is nowhere to be seen.

“That’s a very creative refrain, very catchy,” she remarked, asking if the line was “related to the lowest unemployment ever, basically, for African Americans.”

Ingraham and network contributor Raymond Arroyo then laughed over Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan calling Hussle “Nipsey Russell” in a eulogy, seemingly by mistake. Hussle’s name was a play on the late comedian Russell’s name.

R&B singer Tank was among the first to speak out on Instagram, pushing for the host’s removal.

“Disrespecting the deceased is not news,” he wrote. “It’s just disrespect!”

The Game joined in just hours later with a post of his own, claiming that if the network doesn’t take action, it “will lose millions of viewers one person at a time until it drastically effects your ratings, views etc.”

“We are NO LONGER laying quiet while you continuously disrespect our brother, culture African Americans as a whole,” he added. “I will use my platform & call on my peers to do the same.”

T.I. reposted The Game’s video shortly after, rebuking Ingraham’s segment as “disgusting.”

Their messages of opposition were also echoed by Snoop Dogg, who commented on The Game’s post with a supportive, “I’m in.”

An online petition for the firing has also circulated, garnering more than 17,000 signatures.

Fox News is yet to comment.

R. Kelly Has -$13 In His Bank Account After $150k Was Seized When His Ex-Landlord Sued




R. Kelly is reportedly broke after $150,000 was seized from multiple bank accounts after his former Chicago landlord filed a lawsuit accusing him of owning back rent.

The R&B singer has hit rock bottom and currently has -$13 in one of his bank accounts, according to court documents obtained by The Blast.

Wintrust Bank, where Kelly holds an account, informed his former landlord that Kelly's balance with them is in the negatives.

Though that bank account has been drained, Kelly is said to have two other bank accounts with Bank of America.

One of those accounts held $44,595.58 and the other had $110,056.64.

However, all of that money was seized by the landlord, who filed a lawsuit accusing Kelly of owing back rent.

Kelly has $625 left between the two Bank of America accounts, according to The Blast.  

The landlord was awarded $173,000 from the suit and subpoenas were sent to Sony Music, the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP) and multiple banks. 

According to The Blast, Kelly is not owed any money by the ASCAP, which collects money for artists.
