  • Counting under way in Afghan poll marred by deadly violence, chaos

    Counting under way in Afghan poll marred by deadly violence, chaosAfghan election workers began counting votes on Saturday following a partial legislative ballot tarnished by scores of deadly militant attacks, technical glitches and administrative chaos. Nearly 170 people -- civilians and security forces -- were killed or wounded in election-related violence, official figures showed, and there are fears of more bloodshed when voting resumes Sunday in 401 polling centres. "Inevitable" problems with biometric verification devices, which were introduced at the eleventh hour, as well as missing voter registration lists and lack of staffing delayed or even prevented voting at those polling sites, the Independent Election Commission (IEC) told reporters.

  • Migrant caravan vows to remain on border crossing without food or water until Mexican authorities grant access

    Migrant caravan vows to remain on border crossing without food or water until Mexican authorities grant accessThousands of migrants making their way towards the United States remain stuck on a river crossing between Guatemala and Mexico without food or water.  The migrants, part of a caravan of around 4,000 people, have vowed to remain there until Mexican authorities grant them entry into the country  despite conditions on the bridge worsening with a growing pile up of  rubbish and no bathrooms.  Tensions flared on the Suchiate river crossing late on Friday when the migrants attempted to force their way across the border and Mexican riot police threw tear gas at the crowd.  Meanwhile, many Hondurans, mostly men, swam across the river and remain on the riverbank on Saturday, on the Mexican side of the border, waiting  for the rest of the caravan to cross.  Around 200 people who did manage cross, mainly women and children, were taken to an immigration centre, where their details were recorded. Around 200 were taken to a detention centre - thousands more remain on the bridge Credit: AP They were later transported to a convention centre located in the city of Tapachula, an hour’s drive from the border, that has been turned into a makeshift shelter.  The remaining migrants - thought to number about 3,000 - have also moved about 30 feet back from the Mexican border gate, in order to avoid repeating the chaos caused on Friday night.  Selvin Flores, a 35-year-old Honduran shopkeeper, said people who "were  causing disorder" have been expelled from the group and handed over to  Guatemalan police. Honduran migrants heading in a caravan to the US, hold up a crying baby while they struggle to cross one of the gates of the Guatemala-Mexico international border bridge in Ciudad Hidalgo Credit: AFP The caravan formed last Saturday in San Pedro Sula, Honduras, and arrived  in Guatemala on Monday. Migrants within the group have said they are bound for the United States, seeking work and fleeing political corruption and  violence.  The caravan has drawn the ire of President Donald Trump, who threatened to  shut down America's southwest border if Mexico did not halt the group, despite the huge impact it would have on trade flows between the two countries.  Migrant caravan He also repeated a threat to suspend foreign aid to the governments of  Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador if they fail to act.  Mr Trump has been focusing on immigration as he campaigns for Republican candidates ahead of November's midterm elections. He has called the attempt to enter the US an "assault on our country" at rallies and stressed that tackling immigration was far more important to him than trade.  Aerial view of the Honduran migrant caravan heading to the US Credit: AFP The president's administration has struggled to tackle the worsening  immigration numbers as Mr Trump hits the limits of what he is able to legally do without the support of Congress.  The issue has caused a deep rift among Mr Trump's top advisers, culminating  in a heated row between his chief of staff John Kelly and national security  adviser John Bolton last week.  Mr Trump on Saturday blamed "obstructionist" Democrats for the failure to  tackle the issue. "We could write up and agree to new immigration laws in  less than one hour. Look at the needless pain and suffering that they are  causing. Look at the horrors taking place on the Border," he said.  If the Democrats would stop being obstructionists and come together, we could write up and agree to new immigration laws in less than one hour. Look at the needless pain and suffering that they are causing. Look at the horrors taking place on the Border. Chuck & Nancy, call me!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 20, 2018 After the caravan’s leaders, Bartolo Fuentes, a former Congressman, and  Juan Carlos Lopez, were arrested by the Guatemalan authorities and deported to Honduras, there has been a notable absence of leadership within the  group.  On Friday night, tensions and scuffles erupted as exhausted Hondurans, many  of whom are traveling with young children, braced themselves to spend the  night on the bridge. A Honduran migrant heading in a caravan to the US, is lowered down the Guatemala-Mexico international border bridge with a rope into the Suchiate river, to swim or board a raft to reach Mexico Credit: AFP A group of women began to sing and pray in an effort  to calm the situation. “I felt very scared. I kept running back and forth because I’m not used to  this mayhem”, said Heidy Marleny Castro, 44, who is travelling with her two  youngest children, aged 8 and 13. “We’re going to stay here until we get  help, no matter how long it takes. If need to endure hunger and thirst, so  be it,” she said.  Like many other Hondurans, Mrs Castro is fleeing rampant violence as  well as poverty. Two of her children were murdered in 2015.  With a total of 3,791 murders in 2017 (a murder rate of 42.8 per 100,000  inhabitants), Honduras is one of the most dangerous countries in the world.  Tensions on the border became heated on Friday night Credit: Reuters Although the caravan’s goal is to reach the United States, some Hondurans  have said they would be willing to apply for working visas in Mexico, after newly elected president Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador promised to provide job  opportunities to Central Americans.  “If we’re given the opportunity to reach Mexico, at least we’ll be in a  safer place”, said Mrs Castro. “We’re here because we have no other choice. We want a better life for our children." 




  • This fifth grader's baked potato costume is better than whatever you've planned for Halloween

    This fifth grader's baked potato costume is better than whatever you've planned for HalloweenThis is One Good Thing , a weekly column where we tell you about one of the few nice things that happened this week. Halloween is fast approaching and while you may think your planned costume's impressive, there's a very good chance it won't top this fifth grader who dressed as a baked potato. Reddit user seal2781, a 24-year-old named Celia, recently shared a throwback Halloween picture from 2004 — the year she followed her heart and dressed as a baked potato wrapped in foil with a li'l pat of butter on top. Precious! Delicious! All around wholesome! The costume is one of the closest things we've seen to absolute Halloween perfection, and the kind of ensemble we should all strive to put together this time of year. If you're having doubts about how great it is, we're not exaggerating. See for yourself... SEE ALSO: This Kevin from 'The Office' Halloween costume for babies needs to exist IRL Celia told Mashable via Reddit that she fashioned the wearable baked potato for her elementary school Halloween costume contest. The costume won first prize and for that, she received a whole $5!  "The day before the contest I decided I wanted to be a baked potato," she wrote. "I'm not really sure why — I just thought it would be funny." She says her dad Ron helped make the costume out of cardboard boxes. "We covered the boxes in wide plastic wrap to hold it all together, and then covered it in foil and added the fluff and brown paper 'skin.' The pad of butter was just a small pizza box covered in yellow cellophane paper." The baked potato has everything you'd want from a good costume. The homemade aspect shows off your resourceful side, it'll give people a good laugh, and you'll also stand out from a crowd of store bought superheroes, princesses, and more. Though it does have one downfall... "The main thing I remember about the costume was how hot it was. I really felt like a baked potato wearing it," Celia said. But still, an overall success. Celia's family has been cranking out next-level costumes for years, she explained, recalling her brother's most memorable ensemble: a massive five-foot tall baseball bat. Stunning.
