  • Ethiopian prime minister escapes rally grenade attack that kills one, wounds scores

    Golocal247.com news

    By Aaron Maasho ADDIS ABABA (Reuters) - Ethiopia's new Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed escaped a grenade attack on Saturday at a rally in the capital that killed one person and left scores wounded, officials and witnesses said. The attack was launched by an unidentified assailant moments after 41-year-old prime minister, a former soldier who took office in April, finished his speech to tens of thousands of people gathered in the centre of Addis Ababa. Addressing the nation on television shortly after the blast and still wearing a green t-shirt he was handed at the rally, Abiy said the attack was an "attempt by forces who do not want to see Ethiopia united." Abiy had promised the crowd in his speech in Addis Ababa's Meskel Square that he would bring more transparency to government and reconciliation to a nation of 100 million people that has been torn by protests since 2015.

  • This massive pile of barrels will break your bourbon-loving heart

    Golocal247.com news

    To the bourbon fans out there: I'm sorry for what you're about to witness.  I know it will pain you to see thousands of barrels piled up in a mess of broken wood and metal scraps rather than stacked neatly along the walls of your favorite distillery, but that's the unfortunate reality down in Bardstown, Ky. right now. SEE ALSO: 7 smoky beers to challenge your taste buds As the Courier-Journal reports, part of a warehouse at Barton 1792 Distillery collapsed on Friday, sending an estimated 9,000 barrels tumbling to the ground. No one was hurt.  In a statement provided to the newspaper, the company said it's in the process of assessing the damage and determining which barrels can be saved. An image snapped by the Bardstown, Kentucky Fire Department shows the aftermath of the collapse.Image: Chief Billy Mattingly/AP/REX/ShutterstockStill, there's concern that leaking bourbon could contaminate the ground water. As the New York Times reports, though initial testing "came back clean," state officials from the Division of Waste Management and from the Division of Water plan to continue testing.  Despite the collapse, the Courier-Journal reports that the distillery plans to stay open on Saturday for tours, as usual. The paper reports that the warehouse is just one of 29 warehouses on the distillery's property. While we're thrilled no one was hurt in the collapse, we'll be busy mourning the loss of what could be a serious amount of nice liquor. I mean, just look at the aerial footage, courtesy of CBS DFW: Pour one out for the barrels we've lost. WATCH: This gadget lets you pour wine without uncorking the bottle

  • Mohamed Salah given honorary citizenship of Chechnya by strongman ruler accused of human rights abuses

    Golocal247.com news

    Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah has been given honorary citizenship in Russia's Chechnya republic by Ramzan Kadyrov, the strongman ruler who has been accused of human rights violations including the widespread torture of gay men. Kadyrov handed Mr Salah a decree declaring him a citizen and pinned a medal on his chest at a dinner in honour of the Egypt team, who are training in Chechnya during the World Cup. “Mohamed Salah thanked us for our surprisingly warm and good hospitality, great affection for the team and excellent conditions for their stay and training,” Kadyrov, who was banned last year from his beloved Instagram, wrote on Russian social network VK. “I'm sure our Akhmat club and the Egypt team will at some point hold a friendly match in Grozny.” Human rights defenders have condemned the approval of Chechnya as a World Cup training base due to its crackdowns on LGBT people and activists. Alexander Agapov, president of the Russian LGBT Sport Federation, said he had questions for FIFA, the Egyptian football association, the Liverpool team and Mr Saleh about the dubious honour bestowed on him. Mo Salaha receiving honour at gala dinner “It is unacceptable for a footballer who should talk about equality and acceptance of all people in football to receive an award from a man who rejects any equality and acceptance of LGBTi people, who is accused of persecuting gay people and human rights defenders,” Mr Agapov said. At least five died after Chechen authorities rounded up and tortured hundreds of gay men in a witch hunt last year. One victim said he was kept for 12 days in a cell “doused in blood” and repeatedly beaten with a club until he could no longer stand. Kadyrov told the BBC this month that these allegations were “made-up” and Chechnya does not have a single gay person. Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah  He has exploited the arrival of the international football star to boost his own standing, even dragging Mr Salah out of bed to show him off to thousands of adoring fans at the local stadium. Tanya Lokshina of Human Rights Watch said Kadyrov was “using the World Cup to gloss over the staggering repressions in Chechnya”. Ramzan Kadyrov The Chechnya director for Russia's oldest human rights group Memorial, Oyub Titiyev, was arrested in January and faces 10 years in jail for drugs, which he said were planted in his car by police. “If Titiev is not released, it’ll be a dark stain on FIFA. It’ll mean that FIFA hasn’t fully used its leverage with Russian authorities to do the right thing,” Ms Lokshina said.
