3 year old girl raped in Lagos

The raped 3 year old girl
Wonders indeed shall never end, this mind boggling story of a 3 year old child raped
yesterday afternoon at Adeniji Adele, Dolphin Estate, Phase 2, Lagos (South West Nigeria) is one that will keep you wondering what the world is turning into.

Reports i just got from Linda Ikeji's blog says the little girl ran into a woman's shop crying. The woman asked her why she was crying, but the little girl couldn't really express herself. 

She just kept pointing at a particular direction, and crying. Then a few minutes later, the shop owner saw a man approaching her shop and calling on the girl to follow him. The woman asked the man who he was and why he was after the girl. The man probably realized the women wasn't going to release the girl to him, so he tried to run. The woman raised an alarm immediately shouting ole ole, thinking he was a kidnapper, not knowing he had done something much worse.

France opens murder inquiry into Arafat's 2004 death

The conspiracy theory on the death of one time Palestinian leader, Yasser Arafat has been reinvigorated as a French court has opened a murder inquiry into his death eight years ago.

This follows claims by his widow that he may have been poisoned.

Arafat died in a Paris military hospital in November 2004, a month after being flown, seriously ill, from his battered headquarters in Ramallah, where he had been effectively confined by Israel for more than two and a half years.

Saeb Erekat, chief negotiator for the Palestinian Authority, welcomed the inquiry. However, he said the Arab League would also call at the United Nations for an international investigation into the death of Arafat, who led Palestinians' campaign to create a state through years of war and peace.

Allegations of foul play have long surrounded Arafat's demise after French doctors who treated him in his final days said they could not establish the cause of death.
