Emiley Sanchez, a 40-year old Cuban from the eastern city of Holguin where the Boeing 737 had been heading, died in a hospital in the capital due to "severe traumatic lesions and burns" suffered in the accident.

  • Mother and child die as baby poisoned through breast milk after snake bite news

    An Indian woman who was bitten by a snake in her sleep and unknowingly breastfed poisoned milk to her daughter has died along with the child, police said Friday. The 35-year-old woman from Uttar Pradesh state did not realise she had been bitten when she woke and breastfed her daughter. The three-year-old girl and the mother fell ill on Thursday and both died before they could reach hospital, police inspector Vijay Singh told AFP. The family spotted the snake in another room but the creature escaped. A post-mortem is to be carried out but police have registered a case of accidental death, the officer added. India is home to some 300 snake species and 60 are highly venomous, including the Indian cobra, krait, Russell's viper and saw-scaled viper. India accounts for 46,000 of the 100,000 snakebite deaths around the world each year, according to a 2011 study by the American Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene.

  • Colombia to join Nato as country prepares for elections which could spell end of peace deal news

    Colombia will become the first country in Latin America to join Nato, the outgoing president announced on the eve of the first presidential elections since its bloody civil war came to an end. Juan Manuel Santos, who signed a peace deal with the left-wing Farc guerrillas in 2016, ending the longest-running civil conflict in the western hemisphere and winning the Nobel Peace Prize for his efforts, made the announcement on Friday night. Colombia will join next week as a "global partner", Mr Santos said, which means it will not necessarily have to take part in military action but will be fully accredited in Brussels. But the announcement came as the peace process, on which he staked his presidency, hangs in the balance. Mr Santos cannot run for a third term, and the current front-runner for the today's election (SUN) is Right-winger Ivan Duque, who has sharply criticised the deal for giving too much ground to the Farc. Juan Manuel Santos meets Theresa May in London, in November 2016 Hand-picked by Mr Santos's rival and presidential predecessor, Alvaro Uribe, Mr Duque, a 41-year-old lawyer and financial consultant from a prominent political family in Antioquia, has said he would alter the peace agreement if he is elected. While legally the deal cannot simply be torn up by a new government, it can be effectively “slow waked” to failure by blocking legislation needed to fully implement the agreement. People gather in Bogota, at the main Bolivar Square, on September 26, 2016, to celebrate the historic peace agreement between the Colombian government and Farc Mr Duque faces a strong challenge in the elections from the Left-wing candidate, Gustavo Petro, a well-known former rebel from the M-19 group who has a track record in congress and as the mayor of Bogota. The other three candidates are more centrist, and all are seasoned politicians: Germán Vargas Lleras toward the centre-right, and Sergio Fajardo and Humberto de la Calle – chief negotiator of the Farc peace deal - toward the centre-left. Polls suggest that no one candidate will win outright today (SUN), in which case a run-off will be held on June 17. Colombia joining Nato will mean it will cooperate on global security areas like cyber and maritime security, terrorism and links to organised crime. Alvaro Uribe, president of Colombia from 2002-10, has emerged as one of the fiercest critics of the peace deal, and has chosen Ivan Duque as his successor "Colombia benefits a lot from being an active part of the international community,” said Mr Santos, announcing the move, which had been agreed last year, on national television. “Many of the problems we face are increasingly global and need the support and collaboration of other countries for their solution." Other global partners include Afghanistan, Australia, Iraq, Japan, the Republic of Korea, Mongolia, New Zealand and Pakistan.

  • Canada restaurant blast: Bomb explosion injures 15 people in Mississauga as two suspects flee news

    Canadian police are hunting for two men who set off a homemade bomb in an Indian restaurant in Mississauga, injuring 15 people on Thursday evening.  Footage released by police shows the two suspects entering the city's Bombay Bhel restaurant with an object resembling a paint can moments before the bomb went off. The pair fled the scene late on Thursday and a manhunt is under way. The motive for the attack is unknown and there was no immediate claim of responsibility. Explosion: Multiple people injured following reports of an explosion at Bambay Bhel Restaurant 5035 Hurontario St near Eglinton in Mississauga.— Tony Smyth (@LateNightCam) May 25, 2018 "Nothing was said by these individuals," said  Peel Regional Sergeant Matt Bertram. "It appears they just went in, dropped off this device and took off right away."  Two separate family parties were going on at the restaurant at the time of the attack with children under the age of ten present. A CCTV image released by police shows two suspects walking in the Bombay Bhel restaurant before the bomb exploded. One is carrying an object Credit: Peel Regional Police Three of those hurt had what were described as "critical blast injuries". Rafael Conceicao, a student from Sao Paulo, Brazil, was near the restaurant when the explosion occurred.  "Glass was broken in the street ... Everything was destroyed. Lots of blood on the floor. Many people were screaming. They were trying to run out from the restaurant," he said. Officials said three Indian-Canadians suffered critical injuries but are in a stable condition in hospital.  The remaining 12 victims suffered minor and superficial injuries, police said. The ages of the injured range from 23 to 69.  A police officer walks in front of shattered glass at the restaurant on Thursday evening Credit: MARK BLINCH /Reuters The two male suspects were described as around 5ft 10in to 6ft tall with light skin. Their faces were covered during the attack.    One of the suspects was described as "stocky" and in his mid-20s, while the other was of thin build, police said. Both men were wearing blue jeans and dark hoodies, with their faces covered.

We haven't ruled anything out as we start our investigation," said Peel Regional Police Chief Jennifer Evans. "Every police resource is being used right now to locate the people responsible for this horrendous act." Peel Regional Police said they received a call at just after 10.30pm local time (3.30am BST). Heavily armed tactical officers were part of the large police response at the scene. Police are seeking to establish a motive for the attack on Thursday Credit: MARK BLINCH /Reuters The plaza where the restaurant is located remained sealed off on Friday. "It was an extremely horrific and sad incident that happened at our Hwy 10 location," the restaurant said in a Facebook post. Mississauga, which is Canada's sixth largest city and has a population of 700,000, is near Lake Ontario and about 20 miles west of Toronto. The explosion in Mississauga comes a month after a driver ploughed his white Ryder rental van into a lunch-hour crowd in Toronto, killing 10 people and injuring 15.
