A Saudi announcement that major combat is nearing an end in Yemen was welcomed by Washington Thursday, as the death toll from alliance air strikes on a market rose to 119. The United Nations childrens’ agency gave the new toll, nearly three times that previously reported, for the Saudi-led strikes on the market this week in northern Yemen’s rebel-held Hajja province. It is one of the deadliest incidents since coalition forces intervened on March 26 last year to support President Abedrabbo Mansour Hadi after rebels seized large parts of Yemen including the capital Sanaa.

Lion mauls man in middle of rush hour after getting agitated by the traffic | Africa | News | The Independent

A lion has mauled a man after straying into rush hour traffic in Nairobi.  The male, which is thought to have become agitated by the hooting of car horns by passing motorists, was then captured and taken back to a reserve that lies on the edge of the city, the Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS) said. KWS, which manages the country’s safari reserves including the Nairobi National Park on the outskirts of the capital, said its units had caught the lion after images posted on social media showed it wandering along a main road near the park.
