  • Breaking Saudi King Abdullah Is Dead

    Saudi Arabia's 91-year-old King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz has died, according to Saudi media outlets.

    He was admitted to the hospital in Riyadh for "medical checks" at the end of December.

    Crown Prince Salman has been named the new king.

    King Abdullah assumed the throne in 2005 as the country's sixth king. Salman, 79, is Abdullah's half-brother and has been making appearances and speeches on behalf of the late king for the last couple of months.

    Salman is also reportedly in poor health, so from here the family's succession could get interesting. According to Reuters, "King Salman has called on the family's Allegiance Council to pay allegiance to Muqrin as his crown prince and heir." 

    Muqrin bin Abdulaziz is Abdullah's half-brother and is 69 years old. He was controversially named deputy heir to Abdullah last March, effectively bypassing two of the late king's other half brothers. The move went against the unspoken rule that succession passes down according to age.

    Oil Policy

    The Saudi succession question brings up real questions about the country's oil policy.

    Saudi Arabia is the most powerful member of the OPEC oil cartel. It has, so far, refused to cut oil production to stop prices from falling further, preferring to let the market run its course. But that could change at any time, and may very well if there is a transition period related to succession soon.

    Emad Mostaque at the emerging markets consultancy Ecstrat outlines the basic issue

    Oil prices are now at levels that cause real concern on the streets of Saudi Arabia, with the prospect of succession the icing on top that has caused retail investors to take the market down another leg.

    This policy may not make it through a succession period, where public support and good will is essential, particularly as it has nearly been 20 years since the last change.

    The new regent could decide to keep existing policy, change it completely or anything he decides. Similarly he has free reign to realign Saudi Arabia’s foreign policy as he wishes, which is a discussion for another time and place, but could have significant regional impacts.

    Michael Levi, a global energy expert at the Council on Foreign Relations, said in an interview earlier this month with Business Insider that succession may not have a big effect on policy, but could lead to a lot of political turmoil. "Either very little happens or a lot does," he said.

  • Chinese Woman Snips Cheating Husband's Penis Off Twice In One Night

    A man in China proved there should be a new rule of thumb when it comes to infidelity: Don’t use your partner’s phone to cheat.

    Fan Lung, 32, of Shangqiu, in Central China's Henan province, was sleeping when his wife, Feng Lung, 30, discovered he was having an affair after he failed to log out of his account. Fan awoke screaming when he found his wife had cut off his penis with a pair of scissors — Lorena Bobbitt-style. The man was rushed to the hospital for emergency reattachment surgery, according to HNR, a government-owned Chinese news agency, but that same night, following surgery, his wife snuck into his hospital room and cut off his penis a second time.

    The penis can be reattached if most of it is salvageable. In order for this surgery to be successful, it would have to be placed in ice and reattached within 24 hours. After surgery, the penis resembles a near-normal one and functions well with good urine flow, no urethral stricture, and erection with near-normal sensitivity.

    twice2Following the second snipping, the pair, who have five children, “[s]ubsequently clashed outside the facility, with a naked and bleeding Fan repeatedly beating his wife, until onlookers called the police," the Agence France-Presse reported.

    The hospital staff was not aware of the bloody brawl until they were notified in the reception area that a naked man was beating up a woman outside the hospital. “Staff rushed out to see what was happening and found the patient with blood streaming down his legs hitting the woman. He was stopped and the woman was taken in for treatment, and then we discovered she had chopped his penis off again,” said a hospital spokesman.

    Fan lost a lot of blood and was immediately taken in for emergency surgery after his marital dispute. Aside from being distraught, he is now in stable condition. Doctors and police still have yet to find Fan’s penis but believe it may have been taken by a stray dog or cat.

    While it ultimately appears to be a sad fate for Fan, his lover Zhang Hung, 21, visited him at the hospital with an unexpected surprise. Hung plans to marry Fan as soon as he can — with or without his penis.

    “It doesn't matter that he's lost his fertility, he has five children already,” Zhang said.

    Feng has been discharged from the hospital and was placed under arrest for the double dismemberment.

  • 11 people died in a horrific car accident on the new Addis-Adama expesssway

    HORRIFIC CAR ACCIDENT ON ETHIOPIA’S NEW EXPRESSWAY LEFT ELEVEN DEAD [Addis Standard]

    An early morning major car accident on Sunday January 18th on the newly opened Addis-Adama expressway has left eleven people dead on impact and nine people wounded. Five of the wounded have received life threatening wounds and are in critical conditions, an investigating officer told Addis Standard.

    addisstandardThe accident happened early at around 6:00 am when a driver of a Sinotruk coming from Adama, the capital of Oromia regional state 100 kms South of Addis Abeba, lost its track and derailed into the separation fence of the six lane expressway. The Sinotruck then hit a minivan carrying 16 people and was speeding from Addis Abeba to Adama, reducing the minivan to a quarter of its original size and killing the eleven people on board on impact.
    “We have no idea how this could possibly happen,” an investigating officer on the spot told Addis Standard, “we are unable to know whether the driver of the truck is amongst the dead or has left the accident scene.” The driver and the assistant on the minivan were among the dead. Most of the passengers on the minivan were people going to celebrate the Epiphany celebrations of the Ethiopian Orthodox Church with their loved ones, the investigating office who wants to remain anonymous told us.

    Due to massive construction works throughout the country, Ethiopia has seen a sharp increase in the numbers of the Chinese made Sinotruks. However, many Ethiopians complain of horrific car accidents caused by these tucks as most of them are operated by poorly trained drivers.

    expressway-accident-The 84.5 km Addis-Adama expressway, the first for the country, opened for traffic on Sep. 14th 2014. The six-lane expressway was built by China Communications and Construction Co. (CCCC) and financed by the government in Ethiopia and Exim Bank of china, which provided a US$800 million. The expressway has seven toll stations between Tulu Dimtu on the outskirts of Addis Abeba, and the last point in the western part of Adama.

  • Solomon Zemichael Teklie admitted to wearing a mask during carjacking and two bank heists in Canada

    Solmon TeklieAn Edmonton man is facing a lengthy prison term after admitting Monday to a one-day crime spree consisting of a terrifying armed carjacking and two bank heists.

    Solomon Zemichael Teklie, 40, pleaded guilty in Provincial Court to three counts of robbery.

    Crown prosecutor Carrie-Ann Downey argued for a sentence of eight to nine years while defence lawyer Deborah Hatch suggested between five and six years.

    According to agreed facts, Teklie came up to Caroline Ombogo as she sat in her car in the parking lot of Northgate Mall, 9499 137 Ave., at 11 a.m. on Jan. 11, 2014.

    Teklie knocked on the car window, showed Ombogo a small black gun -- which turned out to be a pellet gun -- and motioned for her to get out. After she emerged with her hands up, Teklie grabbed her cell phone right out of her hand and then drove off as she ran into the mall.

    Court heard Teklie then entered the Bank of Montreal at Londonderry Mall, 6806 137 Ave., approached a female employee, showed her his gun and demanded money. He made off with $1,000 in cash.

    Teklie then drove the stolen car to a CIBC branch at 16135 97 St., where he approached a teller, showed her his gun and again demanded money. He left after being handed $100 in decoy money and a dye-pack.

    Court heard Teklie was wearing a mask during both hold-ups, which resulted in witnesses describing him as either Caucasian or Hispanic with strange or damaged skin.

    Police had responded to the carjacking and both robberies and Teklie was spotted driving the stolen car in the area of 66 Street and 160 Avenue about 11:35 a.m.

    Officers successfully boxed the car in and arrested Teklie without incident. The pellet gun was found in his pocket and inside the vehicle was found a skin-tone rubber mask.

    MaskPolice later found a crack pipe made out of a pop can and what appeared to be crack cocaine on Teklie and he told officers while confessing that he was addicted to cocaine.

    A victim impact statement by Ombogo revealed the woman was terrified by the carjacking and had to move from the city because she was unable to sleep. She wrote she is also scared of people, has trust issues, can't make friends or go to malls and is often afraid in vehicles.

    Hatch told court Teklie was born in the Eritrea region and then moved to Ethiopia and said he lived through civil war which resulted in him losing family members.

    She said Teklie came to Canada in 2000 after spending seven years in a refugee camp in Kenya and has been diagnosed as suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) as a result of his experiences.

    At the time of the crime spree, Teklie was working two jobs, but she noted he was abusing both alcohol and cocaine and suggested he was self medicating because his PTSD had not yet been diagnosed.

    A sentencing decision is scheduled for Feb. 23.

  • Kitfo Sandwich? Owner of Abyssinia Ethiopian Cuisine in New York, Zelalem Gemmeda, Introduces Ethiopian beef-and-cheese sub

    Kitfo makes tasty Buffalo-Ethiopian hybrid sandwich

      | 

    Kitfo, a dish of minced beef flavored with spices and clarified butter, is hugely popular in Ethiopia, where it’s often presented as the centerpiece of large meals.

    kitftosandwichWhen Zelalem Gemmeda started serving her Ethiopian dishes from a restaurant stall called, inside the West Side Bazaar she had a problem.

    How could she sell kitfo to Buffalonians, who wouldn’t necessarily want to sit down for the lengthy traditional meals, especially in the middle of the day?

    Thus the kitfo sandwich was born. It’s minced beef that’s been marinated with spices, including chile and cardamom, then drenched in clarified butter that’s been simmered with more spices. The meat goes onto a sub roll, where it’s topped with fresh house-made cheese.

    Call it an Ethiopian beef-and-cheese sub, if it makes you feel better, just don’t miss trying this true example of Buffalo-Ethiopian crossover cuisine. “In Ethiopia, we don’t eat sandwiches,” Gemmeda said. They don’t eat bread, either. “We eat kitfo with injera,” the characteristic sourdough pancake of Ethiopian cuisine. “I am creating this for other people who don’t want to eat big meals.”

    zelalemgZelalem-414x375Ethiopians, who love kitfo, usually eat it raw. At Gemmeda’s stand, you can ask for it raw, half-cooked (“leb-leb”) or fully cooked. She minces her own beef from cuts of bottom round, to ensure its freshness.

    It’s delicious all three ways, to my Western palate. The standard kitfo isn’t spicy hot, though it has a lot of flavor. The sandwich goes for $5.99.

    Gemmeda is from Harar, Ethiopia, and was resettled to Buffalo nine years ago by federal officials after 12 years as a refugee in Yemen. In Sana’a, Yemen’s capitol, she ran a much bigger restaurant, not the stands that the West Side Bazaar’s international cooking squad uses to serve their customers. “My restaurant was as big as this building,” she said.

    She became a U.S. citizen four years ago, and started selling food at the Bazaar two years ago. For the time being, Gemmeda isn’t looking to move out and find a restaurant of her own. “I like being here. The WEDI people are very supportive,” she said, referring to the Westminster Economic Development Initiative, a non-profit that supports immigrants and other West Side residents looking to start businesses.

    With the group’s support, Gemmeda said, she has been able to cook for people again, which she finds satisfying. “I enjoy being with people, and people love my food also,” she said. “I like feeding people.”

  • American U.S Marshal hunting down Ethiopian Amanuel Haile Masho in cocaine possession crime

    Featured Fugitives: Holman & Measho

    GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Shawnee Holman and Amanuel Measho both know they’re wanted men, and according to authorities are doing anything to avoid capture.
    “Mr. Measho actually called one of our investigators several weeks ago and said he was going to turn himself in. Obviously that has not happened,” U.S. Marshal’s Fugitive Task Force Supervisor Steve Hetherington said.
    Measho is a criminal on the run, with the audacity to call the very fugitive task force hunting him down.
    “We started looking for Mr. Measho back in October,” Hetherington said.
    Measho was last known to be living in Rockford with an extensive criminal history, most recently cocaine possession. He also is known as Amanuel Haile, who is wanted nationwide.
    “We don’t know if he’s in (Washington) D.C. or here,” Hetherington said. “We have inquiries in with Homeland Security right now to see if there’s any immigration issues. We believe he was born in Ethiopia.”
    Measho has prior charges of burglary, larceny, obstructing police and drugs.
    Hetherington says most of Measho’s criminal history is here in West Michigan.
    holman-and-meashoAnother West Michigan criminal is Shawnee Holman.
    “We believe he’s still in Grand Rapids,” Hetherington said.
    Holman has served prison time for marijuana and is now on the run with a warrant for maintaining a drug house in the 800 block of Alpine Avenue Northwest in Grand Rapids.
    “There was a search warrant executed at his house back in August and a warrant was issued for his arrest for maintaining a drug house,” Hetherington said.
    He says it’s far better for these two men to turn themselves in, rather than be hunted down.
    “It’s safer. We can do it right at the jail or go pick somebody up somewhere,” Hetherington said.
    Thirty-year-old Amanuel Measho is 6-feet-1, weighs 180 pounds with black hair and brown eyes and may use the name Amanuel Haile.
    Thirty-one-year-old Shawnee Damon Holman is 6-feet-1, weighs 185 pounds with black hair and brown eyes. Holman has a scar on his head and a tattoo on his right shoulder.
    Both men have nationwide extradition orders with a reward for information leading to their capture.
    If you have any information on their whereabouts, call the U.S. Marshals at 1-877-926-8332 or Silent Observer at (616) 774-2345.

  • My brother was killed outside a bar, and everyone assumed he was in a gang: Arsema Berhane from Canada

    TorontoLife
    #TorontoIsFailingMe: My brother was killed outside a bar, and everyone assumed he was in a gang
     
    Toronto’s inner suburbs have become shorthand for crumbling postwar apartment blocks, underfunded schools or gang warfare. They’re among the neighbourhoods with the lowest incomes in the city, the longest trek to a TTC stop, and the highest concentration of immigrants and visible minorities. This month, we’re sharing stories from Torontonians who live in the inner suburbs, told in their own words. Some are shocking, some tragic, some hopeful. Together, they convey an urgent truth: Toronto is failing too many of its citizens. Have a story of your own? Tweet, Facebook, or Instagram with the hashtag #TorontoIsFailingMe to tell us.

    Arsema Berhane, 32
    East York

    My father, Tsehaie Berhane, fled Asmara, Eritrea, in the ’80s during the war with Ethiopia. He was a professor, and the Ethiopians were targeting professionals. It took seven years for him to be able to sponsor my mother, Mebrat, myself, and my three siblings, Filmon, Nahom and Salem. We all arrived in Toronto in 1990. It was March 14, the day before Nahom’s 10th birthday. For four months we lived in a one-bedroom in a high-rise near Lawrence Avenue and Black Creek Drive. The four kids shared the bedroom and my parents slept on a pullout couch. We’d never been in an apartment building before, and it felt like a prison compared to Asmara, where there were other children to play with and green space all around us. That July, we moved into a community housing townhouse in ­Victoria Village. There was a big yard, fields, a school across the street and children from many different cultures. It felt like we had finally arrived at the place we’d envisioned for so long. That was an epic moment for us kids.

    The O’Connor Community Centre became our second home. We participated in the day camps as kids, and became staff in our teens, tutoring and providing youth and family support for Parks and Rec. Nahom played basketball there and led summer camps. He worked for Access Alliance, serving mostly South Asian and Middle Eastern newcomers in ­Crescent Town. All of us work in social services now; I’m a community development manager with TCHC.

    This past September, Nahom and I attended a United Way City Leaders event at the 519 Church Street Community ­Centre. Nahom basically had the mike that night, passionately sharing his ideas for how the organization could grow. ­Afterward, I went home to my house in the Emery Village area and he went east toward his home in Crescent Town. He texted at 11:30 p.m. to say good night, then met a couple of friends at a bar on the Danforth near Greenwood. Around 3 a.m., he left for home. Apparently he encouraged some young guys he knew who were outside to do the same, and that’s when a 23-year-old man he’d never met stabbed him. It was a totally random attack. (The man fled and was arrested the next day.)

    At 5 a.m. I was awoken by a call from my brother Filmon’s wife, Beth, who told me Nahom was in emergency at Toronto East General. I dropped to my knees and prayed, but at no point did I think he was dead or that it had to do with a fight. I assumed it was a car accident. Filmon was there when I arrived. He had been to the scene and had Nahom’s blood on him. He told me how Nahom had been stabbed. Filmon was adamant that we not call my parents until we had some information, because he didn’t want them to panic. Three hours passed and no one would tell us anything. It was weird. We finally decided to call our father, and he came to the hospital. Around 10:30 a.m. the doctors and detectives told us Nahom was dead—they had been held up because they weren’t 100 per cent sure it was him on his ID.

    That was the first time in my life I heard my father cry. It was piercing; I can still remember it. I just tried to hold it together. At that point I put on my social work hat and became the main contact for the police and media. We went home and broke the news to my mom. She started wailing: “What do you mean my son is dead?”

    The initial online conversations claimed Nahom was involved in gangs, which couldn’t be further from the truth. He was a young professional and a contributing member of society. Around 1,500 people came to his funeral, including a number of people Nahom had helped through his work. With his advice, one woman was able to start a small business. Nahom helped one young man develop a music portfolio. He’d created his own vibrant community.
