Human Remains Indicate Explosion Ripped Through Egyptair Flight

Human remains examined at a Cairo morgue indicate an explosion plunged EgyptAir Flight 804 into the Mediterranean Sea, according to Egyptian forensic officials.

Investigators sifting through 80 pieces found floating in the crash site are small, suggesting a blast tore through the doomed flight transporting 66 passengers from Paris to Cairo early Thursday.

“There isn’t even a whole body part, like an arm of a head,” said an forensics official who spoke on condition of anonymity.

He sorted through the remains at a Cairo morgue and believes “the logical explanation is that it was an explosion” that took down the Airbus A320 as it entered Egyptian airspace.

Desmond Tutu's Reverend Daughter Gives Up Her Anglican Church Licence As She Marries A Woman

The reverend daughter of former Cape Town Archbishop Desmond Tutu has announced she will give up her Anglican church licence after marrying a woman.

Rev Canon Mpho Tutu-Van Firth said that she had chosen to make a “dignified” exit rather than be stripped of her right to practice, since the church does not recognise gay marriage.

“Because the South African Anglican Church does not recognise our marriage, I can no longer exercise my priestly ministry in South Africa,” she said. “The bishop of the (Cape Town) diocese was instructed to revoke my licence. I decided that I would give it to him rather than have him take it.”

While same-sex marriage was legalised in South Africa in 2006, the South African Anglican law on marriage states: “Holy matrimony is the lifelong and exclusive union between one man and one woman.”

ISIS Kills 148 As They Target, Hospitals, Bus Stations In Syria

More than 148 people were killed in bombings claimed by the Islamic State group in northwestern Syria, the deadliest attacks to date in the regime's coastal heartland yesterday.

Seven near-simultaneous explosions targeted bus stations, hospitals and other civilian sites in the seaside cities of Jableh and Tartus, which until now had been relatively insulated from Syria's five-year war.

The attacks on strongholds of President Bashar al-Assad's regime came as IS faces mounting pressure in Syria and neighbouring Iraq, where a major offensive to retake the jihadist-held city of Fallujah is underway.

One hundred people were killed in Jableh and another 48 in Tartus to the south, including children.

Observatory head Rami Abdel Rahman said they were "without a doubt the deadliest attacks" on the two cities since the start of the war. IS claimed the blasts in a statement, saying they were in retaliation for Syrian regime and Russian air strikes against the jihadists and vowed to carry out "more devastating and bitter attacks".
