BBNaija: Khafi Shares How She Lost UK Political Election

Kafayat Kareem a.k.a Khafi, one of the BBNaija Season four ‘Pepper Dem’ housemates said she once contested for a political position in the United Kingdom but lost by a slim margin.

Erdogan Calls Ozil, Praises Exit From German Team

President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Tuesday said he had backed Mesut Ozil’s decision to quit the German national team on racism grounds in a telephone call with the Turkish-origin football star, wading into a controversy that caused uproar in Germany.

Worshippers leaving a London mosque just after midnight on Monday were helping an unwell elderly man when a van deliberately targeted them, eyewitnesses said, driven by an attacker who shouted: “I want to kill all Muslims”.

“Not My president’: Thousands Protest Trump In Rallies Across The U.S.

Demonstrations and vigils protesting the election of Donald Trump spread across the country late Wednesday and early Thursday, as thousands of people rallied against the president-elect in cities from coast to coast. Condemning Trump's litany of crude comments about women and his attacks on immigrants, demonstrators marched along city streets, blocked intersections, burned effigies and, in some places, gathered outside buildings bearing Trump's name. “Not my president,” chanted some of the protesters, while others waved signs with the same message. At least 100 people were arrested at some of the protests, according to police officials, most of them at one in New York. While most of the demonstrations remained peaceful, police in Oakland, Calif., said a rally there turned violent ...
