Iranian female soccer fan ‘blue girl’ dies after setting herself on fire

An Iranian female soccer fan who faced a potentially lengthy sentence for trying to enter a soccer stadium dressed as a man has died after setting herself on fire a week ago outside a court, a semi-official news agency reported Tuesday.

The woman, Sahar Khodayari, died at a Tehran hospital on Monday, the Shafaghna news agency reported.

The 30-year-old set herself on fire last week after reportedly learning she may face between six months to two years in prison.

Khodayari was arrested back in March while trying to enter a soccer match for her favorite Iranian soccer team, Esteghlal. She was pretending to be a man and wore a blue hairpiece and a long overcoat when the police stopped her.

Khodayari spent three nights in jail before she was released on bail and waited six months for her court case. When she appeared at court, Khodayari found out her trial had been postponed because the judge had a family emergency, and later overheard someone talking about her possible prison sentence, the BBC reported.

She then left the courthouse and set herself ablaze in front of the building, and later died at the hospital.

Khodayari, who had graduated in computer sciences, was known as the “Blue Girl” on social media for the colors of her favorite Iranian soccer team. Esteghlal issued a statement, offering condolences to Khodayari’s family.

The tragic death immediately drew an outcry among some soccer stars and known figures in Iran, where women are banned from soccer stadiums, though they are allowed at some other sports, such as volleyball.

Former Bayern Munich midfielder Ali Karimi — who played 127 matches for Iran and has been a vocal advocate of ending the ban on women — urged Iranians in a tweet to boycott soccer stadiums to protest Khodayari’s death.

Iranian-Armenian soccer player Andranik “Ando” Teymourian, the first Christian to be the captain of Iran’s national squad and also an Esteghlal player, said in a tweet that one of Tehran’s major soccer stadiums will be named after Khodayari, “once, in the future.”

Women in Iran have been banned from going into stadiums to watch men’s sporting events since 1981, according to Human Rights Watch. The stadium ban may is not written into law, but is “ruthlessly enforced”, according to the organization.

Last October, authorities in Iran allowed a select group of women into Azadi stadium to watch a friendly soccer match between Iran and Bolivia, in Tehran, Iran. Iran’s government faced an Aug. 31 dead by Fifa to allow women to attend official football matches in order to “pave the way” for female attendees, the BBC previously reported.

Iran’s minister of information and communications technology, Mohammad Javad Azari Jahromi, described the death of the female soccer fan as a “bitter incident.”

Vegan activist rescues 16 rabbits, leading to death of nearly 100 baby bunnies in Spain, report says

A Barcelona-based vegan activist has harmed more animals than she tried to save thanks to her radical acts, according to a report.

The New York Post reported that her rescue of 16 rabbits from a farm near Osono last Sunday caused the deaths of nearly 100 baby bunnies.

The news outlet said that the activist, who goes by the name “Mythical Mia” on social media, and whose real name is unknown, allegedly stole many rabbits which were said to have been pregnant or lactating.

Their offspring included an estimated 90 bunnies, which had to be euthanized after being abandoned.

She posted about her campaign on Instagram, which since has been disabled.

“These 16 are the lucky ones,” Mia said about her rescue. “After actions like this we get to go home but for them there is no way out. We only managed to find a home for 16 beforehand, so had to leave thousands of mothers and babies behind. They will be trapped inside those cages for their entire lives, their only escape is when they are shipped off to a slaughterhouse to be murdered for their flesh and fur. Rabbits like these are also abused for animal testing, tortured for a lifetime before eventually getting murdered too. They are also regularly kept as ‘pets’ often in solitary confinement and inappropriate conditions suffering from boredom and multiple other health issues.”

Mia added: “What we do to the animals need to end immediately. This injustice has gone on far too long. We will continue to enter in these facilities to expose these horrors and liberate the beings trapped inside for as long as it takes. We are not going anywhere. Join us in our fight, be vegan, be active and let’s put an end to this once and for all.”

Dutch cop suspected of killing 2 children, self: police

A Dutch cop is suspected of fatally shooting two children and seriously wounding a woman before turning the gun on himself in a home late Monday, authorities said.

A police source told Reuters that the shooting took place in Dordrecht, a city about an hour’s drive south of Amsterdam.

A fourth family member was “seriously injured,” police said.

It was not immediately clear if the 35-year-old officer was related to the children, who were aged 8 and 12, or to the 28-year-old injured woman. Police spokesman Wim Hoonhout told The Associated Press that “it seems like a family incident.”

Police were on the scene late Monday, cordoning off a residential home, Reuters reported. Photos from the scene showed a large police presence in a residential neighborhood and at least one ambulance parked in the street as people stood in the street looking on.

Dordrecht Mayor Wouter Kolff tweeted that there was “a very serious shooting incident,” and he was headed to the neighborhood.

Taliban talks dead: what comes next for the U.S. in Afghanistan?

Days after U.S. Army Sgt. First Class Elis Angel Barreto Ortiz and eleven civilians were killed in a Kabul suicide bombing – for which the Taliban claimed responsibility – President Trump said Monday that peace talks between the United States and Taliban leaders are dead.

So what comes next for war-ravaged Afghanistan and U.S. involvement in the war there that has raged for the past 18 years?

“The entire Afghan policy is currently in upheaval. What happens next depends on whether Trump will listen to Secretary Pompeo, who still believes a deal with the Taliban is the right thing,” Bill Roggio, Senior Fellow at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies and editor of the Long War Journal, told Fox News. “Or the growing chorus, including among influential Trump supporters, who oppose a bad deal with the Taliban.”

Roggio surmised that if the president does follow the advice of his secretary of state, talks could resume in a couple weeks. If not, the military will likely withdraw a number of troops without any agreement in place.

“To be clear, the US is under no obligation to make a deal with the Taliban to leave Afghanistan,” he stressed.

But in sharp contrast to the calm that inking a deal with the hardline Islamist faction was supposed to bring, Trump also tweeted Monday that over the past four days, the United States has “been hitting our enemy harder than at any time in the last ten years.”

HOW THE TALIBAN REMAINED DOMINANT IN AFGHANISTAN: TERRIFYING TACTICS AND AN ADVANCING WEAPONS ARSENAL

For the past twelve months, the U.S Special Envoy and former ambassador to Afghanistan, Zalmay Khalilzad, had been hammering terms of an agreement in Doha, Qatar. Late last month – following nine intense rounds of talks – a deal reportedly reached its final stage, designed to bring an end to the U.S’s protracted engagement in Afghanistan.

According to news reports, the now sidelined accord was said to have stipulated the exit of 14,000 American forces through to the end of 2020. In exchange, the Taliban pledged that it would not allow the conflict-wracked nation to be a safe haven for terrorist groups that threatened the security of the U.S.

But the speed with which the fragile dialogue fell apart has caught experts and analysts by surprise.

“A little over a week ago, there was little opposition to the (peace) deal. Trump was right to halt it, it was a bad deal that absolves the Taliban’s role in providing a safe haven for Al Qaeda prior to and after 9/11,” Roggio said. “It would have been a humiliating defeat for the United States.”

Despite the efforts to reach a diplomatic conclusion to the stalemated conflict, Taliban-inspired attacks have continued with jarring frequency in recent months.

“With or without a large U.S. presence, the current civil war with the Taliban goes on. Kabul still controls vast internal security forces who can hold territory, and there is still foreign aid and logistical support coming in – China and India want a stable government in Afghanistan,” noted Miguel Miranda, an expert analyst in military technology in Asia. “This means the Afghan government won’t crumble overnight. But the Taliban can keep fighting, keep trying to capture cities and subvert local authorities. It’s a sad state of affairs.”

Miranda suspects the talks will resume at some point – likely after next month’s presidential elections in Afghanistan – with a deal centered on four conditions.

“The Taliban will not harbor terrorist groups, a U.S/NATO exit from the country, national dialogue for peace and a permanent ceasefire and a ‘normal’ country,” he conjectured.

Nonetheless, the negotiations have been fodder for criticism since they started, in large part because the Kabul government was not granted a seat at the table. The Taliban has maintained that the Ashraf Ghani leadership are not the legitimate rulers of Afghanistan and refused their participation.

Defense Priorities Policy Director Benjamin H. Friedman does not anticipate the now frozen arrangement to change the calculus.

“The United States will likely proceed with the initial withdrawal of forces regardless of the deal’s status, but it’s hard to say given the president’s fickleness,” he said. “We should proceed with a withdrawal with or without the Taliban’s permission since that is what is in our best interest.”

According to a well-placed U.S. defense source, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, a deal is not likely to be revived in the immediate future, in spite of the insistence of some U.S. officials that it isn’t all over.

“The Taliban will use this as propaganda, and many in the U.S. seem quite comfortable with the prospect of just sending in black ops when things pop up,” the source noted. “People are just tired of the whole situation and the president certainly doesn’t want it to become a campaign issue. I think we are going back to small hits and less (nation) building.”

AFGHAN WOMEN FEAR RENEWED CHAPTER OF SHARIA LAW AND REGRESSION OF RIGHTS UNDER TALIBAN’S THUMB

The view from Afghanistan is a mixture of both relief and concern, with many taken aback by Washington’s secret plan to host the Taliban delegation in Camp David this week, within days of the anniversary of 9/11, before Trump’s weekend announcement he was pulling the plug.

“The news of the Camp David meeting was shocking, and an insult to our terrorism victims. We’re thankful President Trump canceled it,” said Ahmad Muslem Hayat, a former Afghan military attaché in London. “But they will continue. The Taliban will try to increase its terror reign and kill more Afghan Army and U.S. troops.”

Sanjar Sohail, the publisher of Kabul’s Hasht e daily newspaper, concurred that the move to squash the secret meeting on American soil was the right one.

“The entire negotiations were a mistake from the start. It provided recognition and legitimacy to the Taliban, and we were worried after the last round of talks ended that the U.S. was going to abandon us,” he said. “There needs to be a ceasefire, the negotiations between the Taliban and the Afghan government.”

But in the meantime, Afghans caught in the crossfire are bracing for an uptick in violence. And while the U.S. position going forward remains obscure, the Taliban hasn’t minced words – cautioning that the suspension of talks “will harm America more than anyone else.”

“It will damage its reputation, unmask its anti-peace policy to the world, even more, increase its loss of life and treasure and present its political interactions as erratic,” the organization said in a statement. “Such a reaction towards a single attack just before the signing of an agreement displays a lack of composure and experience.”

And at least for the near future, Afghanistan’s bloodletting will continue.

“We will accept nothing less than the complete end of occupation and allowing Afghans to decide their own fate,” the Taliban added. “And we shall continue our jihad for this great cause and maintain our strong belief in ultimate victory, Allah willing.”

Hurricane Dorian: Medical teams race to save lives in the Bahamas

ABACO, Bahamas — Under the blazing sun, American doctors and pilots are making life-saving decisions on tarmacs across the island devastated by Hurricane Dorian.

This seven-person team from Martin County in Florida loaded a cardiac patient from a borrowed and beaten up Chevy onto Acute Air Ambulance’s Leer jet en route to Fort Lauderdale.

Dr. Michael Ferraro, an emergency room doctor from Cleveland Clinic Florida, was on the fourth plane to land here after the storm.

“The local hospital, especially in the Marsh Harbour area, can’t handle any patients right now acutely so we’re just evacuating them all out. Pregnant women, who are four months pregnant and bleeding, not a lot I can do for them here,” Ferraro said. “We’re getting them out.”

Acute Air’s fleet of four aircraft has been picking up and helping as many Bahamians as possible who lost everything in Hurricane Dorian.

HURRICANE DORIAN DEATH TOLL AT 44, BUT OFFICIALS, RESIDENTS KNOW IT WILL RISE DRAMATICALLY

Acute Air Ambulance began supporting relief efforts into the Bahamas once the main airport became accessible. It was the first civilian fixed-wing air ambulance company to bring medical search and rescue personnel into Nassau, and so far has flown 45 missions between Nassau, the Abaco Islands and Grand Bahama to transport the critically injured and ill to medical care. It’s also delivering medical supplies where needed.

Their medical team has seen it all.

“The worst devastation we saw was in Marsh Harbour,” said Shannon Taccalite, a part-time nurse from Parkland, Fla., who volunteered to jump on a plane to help on Thursday along with pilot George Kataikas, Dr. Ferraro, and a nurse practitioner and paramedics from Martin County, Florida. They have all been working around the clock to help bring relief, despite the devastation.

REPORTER’S NOTEBOOK: DORIAN LEAVES WRECKED HOMES AND LIVES ON GRAND BAHAMA ISLAND

“We smelled more than what we saw. We ran into a certain rescue team that was going through a building in shelters and marking. They were seeing a lot of bad stuff,” she added.

The team is hoping to continue its mission.

Every flight is made possible by private funding and donations to cover the cost of fuel.

A GoFundMe page, managed through the Icarus Foundation, has been set up.

France heat waves leave nearly 1,500 dead, health minister says

Two heat waves in France that saw temperatures soar past 100 degrees Fahrenheit this summer resulted in 1,435 deaths, according to health officials.

The European country saw 18 days of record high temperatures in June and July, according to Health Minister Agnes Buzyn, who said a public awareness campaign about the sweltering weather saved thousands of lives.

She said more than 1,000 deaths were added to the annual average for the time of the year.

Half of those who died were over 75 years old, she said.

“The 2003 heatwave lasted 20 days,” she told France Inter radio, according to Reuters. “We had 18 days in two waves and we managed to cut mortality by a factor of 10 thanks to preventative measures.”

France’s highest temperature this summer was 114 degrees in Gallargues-le-Montueux in the south of France on June 28. In July, Paris experienced a record high of 108.

Swedish scientist floats eating human flesh as solution to global climate change: reports

A Swedish scientist speaking at Stockholm summit last week offered an unusual possible tactic in combating global climate change: eating human flesh.

Stockholm School of Economics professor and researcher Magnus Soderlund reportedly said he believes eating human meat, derived from dead bodies, might be able to help save the human race if only a world society were to “awaken the idea.”

Soderlund’s argument for human cannibalism was front and center during a panel talk called “Can you Imagine Eating Human Flesh?” at the Gastro Summit, reports The Epoch Times. “Conservative” taboos against cannibalism, he said, can change over time if peoples simply tried eating human flesh.

Some of the talking points at the seminar included whether humans were too selfish to “live sustainably” and if cannibalism is the solution to food sustainability in the future.

MISTRIAL DECLARED IN CASE OF INDIANA MAN ACCUSED OF KILLING EX-GIRLFRIEND, EATING HER BODY PARTS

When asked during an interview after his talk if he personally would try human flesh, Soderlund said he was open to the idea.

“I feel somewhat hesitant but to not appear overly conservative…I’d have to say….I’d be open to at least tasting it,” he told Sweden’s TV4.

He suggested more plausible options such as eating pets and insects.

Before human meat becomes the next cuisine trend, however, history shows there are potential health risks to cannibalism.

A tribe in Papua New Guinea practiced eating their dead as an alternative to allowing them to be consumed by worms, according to the Standard. The cultural practice led to an epidemic of a disease called Kuru, also known as laughing death.

According to the US National Library of Medicine, the disease is caused by an infectious protein found in contaminated human brain tissue. The practice of cannibalism among the people of New Guinea came to an end in 1960.

Hurricane Dorian death toll at 44, but officials, residents know it will rise dramatically

Westlake Legal Group AP19248769229393 Hurricane Dorian death toll at 44, but officials, residents know it will rise dramatically fox-news/world fox-news/us/disasters/disaster-response fox-news/science/planet-earth/natural-disasters/hurricane-dorian fox-news/science/planet-earth/natural-disasters fox news fnc/world fnc Ellison Barber bce3a72e-6c7e-5a94-bfbb-ee7fd8363c20 article

The grim toll of Hurricane Dorian on the Bahamas reached 44 on Sunday, according to the Caribbean nation’s government, which expects the number of dead to rise.

Minister of Health Duane Sands told the Miami Herald the official death toll represents confirmed deaths and is tabulated as the bodies arrive at the morgue. The majority of the deaths reportedly came in the Abaco Islands. In the other hard-hit area, Grand Bahama, officials attribute eight deaths to Hurricane Dorian.

Residents say the official death toll is substantially lower than the reality.

Fox News arrived in Grand Bahama early Saturday morning and learned of at least 18 deaths in the eastern part of the island. In one small settlement known as High Rock, residents say 17 are dead.

With tears welling in his eyes and his voice cracking, Cecil Willard Kemp listed every name.

“Seventeen persons out of my town are dead,” Kemp said. “That’s unprecedented.”

Kemp, a local pastor, told Fox News the youngest was a five-year-old boy named Maury.

In Nassau, evacuees are being flown into a private airport and tended to in large white tents. Inside there is food and water. Volunteers are helping to process those coming in and either place them in a shelter or transport them to family nearby.

Near one tent, there is a sign identifying it as a family waiting area.

Atish Kemp was looking for her family and criticizing the Bahamian government for what she considers an inadequate response and an egregious lack of transparency.

Kemp, who is not related to Cecil Kemp, accused the Bahamian government of not telling the truth about the death toll and said dead bodies, still lying in the hot sun, could threaten the health of Bahamians.

“Who’s going to be responsible for the lost souls?” she asked. “Who is going to explain to us why we have no plan before [Dorian made landfall], and why we still don’t have any plans?”

Atish Kemp told Fox News dozens of her relatives are unaccounted for.

She believes many, including a niece who was in Freeport, Grand Bahama, could be among the dead.

Kemp says her niece “went to have a baby” the Saturday before the hurricane came and she hasn’t heard from her since.

Officials with the Bahamian government have repeatedly denied allegations of a cover-up and pushed back on what they call “rumors on the Internet,” related to both the death toll and allegations of rejected humanitarian aid.

On Sunday, the minister of health said the death toll is not the government’s priority.

“The priority,” Duane Sands said, “is to find those people for their loved ones who are missing them […] to put food in people’s bellies, water in their throat.”

The prime minister’s office did not respond to Fox News’ request for an on-camera interview with either the prime minister or Sands.

Hurricane Dorian death toll at 44, but officials, residents know it will rise dramatically

The grim toll of Hurricane Dorian on the Bahamas reached 44 on Sunday, according to the Caribbean nation’s government, which expects the number of dead to rise.

Minister of Health Duane Sands told the Miami Herald the official death toll represents confirmed deaths and is tabulated as the bodies arrive at the morgue. The majority of the deaths reportedly came in the Abaco Islands. In the other hard-hit area, Grand Bahama, officials attribute eight deaths to Hurricane Dorian.

Residents say the official death toll is substantially lower than the reality.

Fox News arrived in Grand Bahama early Saturday morning and learned of at least 18 deaths in the eastern part of the island. In one small settlement known as High Rock, residents say 17 are dead.

With tears welling in his eyes and his voice cracking, Cecil Willard Kemp listed every name.

“Seventeen persons out of my town are dead,” Kemp said. “That’s unprecedented.”

Kemp, a local pastor, told Fox News the youngest was a five-year-old boy named Maury.

In Nassau, evacuees are being flown into a private airport and tended to in large white tents. Inside there is food and water. Volunteers are helping to process those coming in and either place them in a shelter or transport them to family nearby.

Near one tent, there is a sign identifying it as a family waiting area.
