1…………> End Of Ramadan: New Bombings 


A suicide attack carried out by two female bombers in the remote town of Shuwari in Damboa killed at least 20 people were and injured 48 others in northeastern Borno state late Saturday, police and a relief agency said Sunday afternoon.

Twelve of the injured remain in “very critical condition”, Bashir Garga, regional coordinator for the government’s relief body, National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA), told Anadolu Agency.

Police also confirmed the death and injury tolls, but a local vigilante official Busari Ahmadu put the death toll higher at 31.

The blasts came a day after Nigeria celebrated Eid-al-fitr marking the end of Muslim fasting month Ramadan.




2…………> “Governs with heart”: Melania

First Lady Melania Trump has spoken out on the policy of separating parents and children illegally entering the country from Mexico, and “believes we need to be a country that follows all laws, but also a country that governs with heart.”

Her comments follow growing controversy over President Donald Trump’s “zero-tolerance” policy, geared towards adults who try to cross the border and are placed in custody and face criminal prosecution for illegal entry, leaving hundreds of minors who are now being housed in detention centres and kept away from their parents.

In her rare intervention, Mrs Trump said she “hates to see children separated from their families and hopes both sides of the aisle [Republicans and Democrats in Congress] can finally come together to achieve successful immigration reform”.



3…………>Rose Town: China

Tourists visit a rose town in Luonan County, northwest China’s Shaanxi Province, June 16, 2018. The rose town in Luonan has received more than 200,000 tourists since its opening in May of 2017.




4…………>Hidden Military Bases: Fear & Mystery?

Secret military installations like Area 51 that legally does not exist, maybe housing terrible secrets and powerful superweapons that have long been the source inspiration of “James Bond” action movies and spy thrillers.

Area 51

The legendary US Air Force base in Nevada, commonly known as Area 51, is probably the most famous military installation among conspiracy theories around the world, with the facility name frequently being invoked in stories about UFO sightings, alien encounters and secret government agencies. 

A local story speaks of a bunch of space aliens who’s planet ran out of garlic-laced ice cream and strawberries, hence they made a deal with Uncle Sam to have a base in the mountains of the Sheep Range in return for sharing their UFO technology with the US.




5…………> Tariff Wars: Enter Mexico 

While still refusing to pay for Mr.Trump’s wall, and do it enthusiastically, Mexico is studying tariffs on the United States corn and soybean imports worth $4 billion annually in case the U.S. should escalate trade tensions by imposing additional tariffs of its own. 

It struck back swiftly after the United States announced May 31 that it would impose 25% and 10% tariffs on Mexican steel and aluminium imports by imposing its own “equivalent measures” on U.S. products including steel, pork, apples, bourbon and cheese. 

But it didn’t include corn and soybeans, both of which are used in Mexico to feed cattle, hogs and poultry. 

However, Mexico has already begun increasing its grain imports from producers such as Brazil and Argentina, meaning that the impact of any move to enforce tariffs on U.S. grains could be reduced.
