90 Cubans escape migration detention in southern Mexico

Ninety Cubans have broken out of the Siglo XXI migrant detention center in southern Mexico, the latest escape of migrants at the overextended facility.

The National Migration Institute says the migrants escaped in the very early hours of Sunday, causing minor damage to the facility in Tapachula, a town in Chiapas state.

It was the second such breakout at the center in recent weeks, as Mexican officials slowly sort through arrivals at Mexico’s southern border and hand out a dwindling number of humanitarian visas to migrants trying to reach the U.S. More than 600 Cubans fled the center in late April, and Mexico flew 170 Cubans home last week.

Frustrated by long waits for visas and overcrowding at shelters, many migrants are opting to continue north without Mexico’s blessing.

UN calls for weeklong truce in Libya’s Tripoli

The U.N. mission to Libya is calling for a weeklong cease-fire in the capital, Tripoli, where forces loyal to a military commander are battling militias loosely allied with a U.N.-supported government.

The U.N. mission says the “one-week humanitarian truce” would begin at 4 a.m. (0200 GMT) Monday. It is calling on all parties to cease military operations, including reconnaissance and mobilization.

It was not immediately clear if any of the factions in Tripoli had agreed to the truce, which would come as many Muslims across the world begin observing the fasting month of Ramadan.

Field Marshal Khalifa Hifter’s forces launched an offensive in Tripoli in early April. The fighting has killed nearly 400 people and wounded nearly 2,000. The U.N. has repeatedly called for a halt to the fighting.

Month of Ramadan fasting for many Muslims begins Monday

Muslims in Southeast Asia and much of the Middle East, including Iraq and Saudi Arabia, are starting the fasting month of Ramadan on Monday.

Millions more, however, in India, Pakistan and Iran, will likely be marking the start of the lunar month on Tuesday based on moon sightings.

Across the world, Muslims fast from dawn to dusk each day for the entire month of Ramadan, abstaining from food and drink and engaging in intense nightly worship, in addition to five daily prayers. For those fasting, that means around 15 hours without food, water, cigarettes or any caffeine.

Ramadan fasting is aimed at drawing worshippers closer to God through self-control, remembrance and humility. It is also a festive time where families and friends gather for evening meals known as “iftar.”

More than 600 rockets fired at Israel from Gaza in less than 24 hours, death toll rises

Westlake Legal Group more-than-600-rockets-fired-at-israel-from-gaza-in-less-than-24-hours-death-toll-rises More than 600 rockets fired at Israel from Gaza in less than 24 hours, death toll rises Talia Kaplan fox-news/world/world-regions/israel fox-news/world fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox news fnc/world fnc c9cdb0e5-8f4b-5ac3-85ec-4108e0ba3203 article

The death toll continues to rise Sunday on both sides of the Israel-Gaza border in one of the most intense flare-ups of violence in the region in years, shattering a month-long lull in attacks.

Palestinian militants in the Gaza Strip fired more than 600 rockets into southern Israel in less than 24 hours, killing at least four Israelis and leaving several more in critical condition.

Israel has retaliated with dozens of airstrikes against militant sites in Gaza. More than a dozen Palestinians, including a pregnant woman and her 14-month old niece, have also been killed.

According to Haaretz, four Israeli men and 16 Palestinians were killed so far since tensions increased along the border on Friday. Four Israelis were also wounded as rockets fell on the Israeli south on Saturday.

ISRAEL STRIKES GAZA TARGETS IN RESPONSE TO PALESTINIAN HEAVY ROCKET FIRE

On Sunday, the Israeli military said a misfired Palestinian rocket — not an Israeli airstrike — caused the death of a pregnant Palestinian woman and her infant niece in the Gaza Strip, disputing the Gaza Health Ministry’s statement that Israel is to blame.

According to the Israeli military, Israeli forces struck dozens of targets in Gaza, including militant sites that were concealed in residential areas. Israeli military spokesman Lt. Col. Jonathan Conricus said Israel’s strikes hit a variety of “high-quality” militant sites, including commanders’ homes in which militant activity was observed.

Israeli medical officials said an early morning rocket from Gaza Sunday killed an Israeli father of four, 58-year-old Moshe Agadi, outside a home in the coastal city of Ashkelon.

Agadi reportedly died of his injuries after he was struck by shrapnel, marking the first Israeli casualty from rocket fire since the 2014 war with Hamas militants.

According to The Barzilai Medical Center in Israel, a 49-year-old man was killed when a rocket hit an Ashkelon factory, while another man in Israel was killed when his vehicle was hit by a projectile near a small border community called Yad Mordechai.

Israeli medical officials also said a Thai laborer was critically injured in a rocket strike later on Sunday.

ISRAEL SAYS 2 SOLDIERS WOUNDED BY GUNFIRE FROM GAZA

By late afternoon, the Israeli military said militants had fired more than 600 rockets into Israel, and that Israeli forces had launched about 260 airstrikes against militant targets in Gaza.

Palestinian officials identified one of the militants who was killed as Hamas commander Hamed al-Khoudary, who Israel said was integral in transferring Iranian money to the militant group.

In Israel, sirens warning of incoming attacks were heard along the border region overnight and throughout the day. Schools were canceled and roads were closed as many Israelis reportedly hid in bomb shelters.

According to Haaretz, the Israeli army said it expects the flare-up to continue in the coming days. A Hamas political source told the news outlet that the group decided to take serious steps against Israel because the Israeli government has been slow in implementing understandings reached between the two parties.

In Gaza, large explosions thundered across the blockaded enclave throughout the night and plumes of smoke rose into the air.

One of the airstrikes hit a commercial and residential building that housed the office of Turkey’s official Anadolu news agency.

The Israeli military said its Iron Dome defense system intercepted more than 150 of the projectiles from Gaza, but several still managed to get through.

The sudden violence has ended a month-long lull as Egyptian mediators had been trying to negotiate a long-term cease-fire.

Israel and Hamas are bitter enemies that have fought three wars since 2007 when the Islamic militant group seized control of Gaza. There have been also been several smaller flare-ups, most recently, in late March.

A zoo in northern Germany says it appears a keeper failed to follow the “golden rule” of checking to see if lions were inside their enclosure before he entered it and was mauled.

A spokeswoman for Serengeti Park said Sunday an investigation attributed the Saturday attack to “human error,” though it wasn’t clear why the experienced 24-year-old keeper hadn’t followed procedure.

Asta Knoth said he suffered “many deep bite wounds” from the two male lions and had undergone several hours of surgery.

Knoth told The Associated Press the man “got away lightly considering the circumstances” and is expected to make a full recovery.

The zoo is located in Hodenhagen, about 80 kilometers (50 miles) south of Hamburg.

The influential brother of former Algerian President Abdelaziz Bouteflika and two generals once in charge of intelligence have been jailed while under investigation for plotting against the state, a military tribunal said Sunday.

A statement from the tribunal in Blida, south of Algiers, said the prosecutor appointed a judge to investigate the ex-president’s young brother Said Bouteflika and generals Mohamed Mediene, known as Toufik, and Athmane Tartag.

They are being investigated for “plotting against the authority of the state” and “attacking the authority of the army,” the statement said.

The three men were key figures during the era of Bouteflika, who resigned April 2 under pressure from the army and weeks of street protests after two decades in power.

A dramatic video aired on state television showed the three climbing the steps to the military tribunal.

Said Bouteflika, 61, was widely viewed in Algeria as the man at the center of a political system that enriched the oil-rich nation’s industrialists while young Algerians suffered rates of high unemployment. He has been accused of usurping presidential powers after his brother’s 2013 stroke.

Mediene was for 25 years in charge of military intelligence service DRS and one of Algeria’s most powerful men until he was forced to resign in 2015.

Tartag headed the DSS state security service until last month, when he quietly stepped down after Bouteflika resigned.

Powerful army chief Ahmed Gaid Salah had publicly accused Toufik of plotting against the popular revolt and warned of legal action if he did not stop. He denounced Said Bouteflika as the head of the “gang” who ran the country.

Mexican villagers beseech volcano goddess for rain, safety

The inhabitants of Santiago Xalitzintla rise well before dawn to prepare their offerings to The Sleeping Woman, as they affectionately call the dormant Iztaccíhuatl volcano that hovers above their town in central Mexico.

There are potatoes to fry for the feast, and heaping bunches of red carnations to lug up to the stone altar 3,800 meters (12,470 feet) above sea level. Hundreds of villagers —including infants, preschool-aged children and the elderly— make the biannual three-hour trek through steep pine forest and past babbling brooks to ask for the volcano’s aid and protection. They beseech her to bring rain for their crops, shield their harvests from hail and calm the ashy exhalations of her neighbor, the unnervingly active Popocatepetl volcano.

Veronica Agustin says the community has gotten used to living with Don Goyo, a nickname for Popocatepetl. When Don Goyo gets angry, the ground vibrates, doors and windows shake — she compares the sound to that of beans cooking in boiling water. “The scare passes,” says Agustin.

Santiago Xalitzintla has the distinction of being the community closest to Popocatepetl, whose crater that has increasingly been belching lava and spewing ash that sometimes reaches Mexico City, 90 kilometers (55 miles) to the northwest. The community is now on evacuation alert, with alarms sounding to tell residents when they should escape to the nearby city of Cholula.

The hike to pay homage to The Sleeping Woman — the volcano’s silhouette resembles a reclining female — is a tradition that goes back generations. The residents of Santiago Xalitzintla celebrate over two days in early May, shooting fireworks into the sky above their town, drinking copious amounts of tequila and cooking communal meals over open fires. Twice a year, they embark on a similar climb up Popocatepetl.

Underneath a small waterfall on the slopes of Iztaccihuatl, the offerings are laid out on an altar. There are papayas and watermelons carved into flower shapes, cups of milky pulque — an alcoholic beverage made from the fermented sap of the maguey plant — cobs of corn, incense and votive candles.

It’s the Day of the Holy Cross, a religious holiday celebrated in many parts of Latin America that marks Byzantine Empress Saint Helena’s search for the cross on which Jesus was crucified.

The ceremony at Iztaccíhuatl, though, mixes Catholic traditions with pre-Hispanic rituals and beliefs.

The pilgrims sing Catholic hymns and hold Mass to ask the Virgin Mary to forgive their sins, standing before wooden crosses draped with rosaries, flowers, shawls and dresses.

Nasario Galicia tends the altar, tucked inside a nook in the stone walls of The Sleeping Woman. He blows incense. He ladles steaming, chili-infused tripe stew into bowls and presents them to the mountain deity. Next come mugs of coffee infused with brown sugar and cinnamon.

Galicia, 76, has been hiking to the altar for more than 40 years. He says he has been struck by lightning, prayed to the mountain goddess and lived to tell the tale. He calls Iztaccíhuatl “Rosita,” for Saint Rose, the patron saint of the indigenous people of the Americas. The villagers’ next trek to Iztaccíhuatl will take place in August on the feast day of Saint Rose.

“This is a tradition that we have carried out for a long time now,” says Galicia.

A conch shell is blown. Drums are beat. Maracas shake. And a song begins in the indigenous Nahuatl tongue to honor Tonantzin, the Aztec mother earth goddess who is often celebrated alongside the Virgin Mary.

Larion Hernandez, who joined the pilgrimage from another village below the volcanos called San Mateo Ozolco, explains first in Nahuatl and then in Spanish why he feels the offerings to Iztaccíhuatl are so important.

“We came to leave an offering and also to ask her, our mother of this place, to give us good harvests and also to thank her at the same time for past harvests,” he says.

The harvest in this patch of Puebla state is primarily corn, the base of the Mexican diet.

“As mother earth, we should take care of her because she gives us food to eat, and we should take care of her because otherwise we will be our own extinction,” concludes Hernandez.

Pakistan’s military says Indian troops fired across a cease-fire line in the disputed Kashmir region, killing a woman and a 12-year-old boy.

In a statement, it says another woman was wounded in the attack Sunday.

The military says Pakistani troops responded to the fire, but there was no word on any Indian casualties.

There was no immediate comment from New Delhi.

Kashmir is a split between Pakistan and India, which have fought two of their three wars over the Himalayan territory since gaining independence from Britain in 1947. The two countries often accuse each other of violating a 2003 cease-fire.
