  • Footballer who survived Colombian plane tragedy was reading Bible

    It was reported that the footballer who survived was reading Bible passage about being safe 'in the shadow of your wings' before crash it emerges as his book is found 

    The bible, belonging to Chapecoense centre back Helio Neto, was found at the scene of the crash and has been handed to the footballer's wife.

    His wife said Neto, who is still fighting for his life in hospital, is deeply religious and takes the religious scripture with him everywhere.

    A bookmark had been inserted next to Psalm 63, which talks about being safe in the shadow of God's wings and about thinking of God in bed.

    In detail it says: 'On my bed I remember you; I think of you through the watches of the night; Because you have been my help; Then I will rejoice in the shadow of your wings. 

    'My soul follows you closely; Your right hand upholds me.'

    Video footage shows journalist Roberto Cabrini at the scene of the wreckage and noticing the book, with a note inside saying it belongs to the defender, who is in a critical condition.

    The reporter can be seen visibly shaking as he realises what it is. 

    He reads with a shaky voice the name that is printed on the inside of the cover, as behind him we can see the wreckage of the crash.

    Mangled parts of the plane can be seen in the background and Cabrini is later seen taking the bible to the wife of Neto, who smiles as she realises what she is being given.

    Neto's condition has been described as 'delicate' by doctors who said they regularly have to 'stabilise' him as he has a 'serious pulmonary infection.'

  • South Africa’s ‘Prophet of Doom’ condemned

     

    In a Facebook post, self-proclaimed prophet Lethebo Rabalago claims a pesticide called Doom can heal people.

    The company that produces Doom warned of the risks of spraying the substance, while a government commission urged anyone affected to lodge complaints.

    But the pastor has defended his actions, telling the BBC he is using unconventional methods to heal people.

    The country has seen a wave of practices where church members have been subjected to unorthodox rituals to receive healing.

    In photos circulating on Facebook and Twitter, Mr Rabalago, who runs the Mount Zion General Assembly in the Limpopo province, is seen spraying the insecticide directly into the eyes and various body parts of his congregants.

    He told the BBC’s Nomsa Maseko in Johannesburg that he had sprayed the face of one woman because she had an eye infection and claimed the woman was “just fine because she believed in the power of God”.

    He also claims the spray can heal cancer and HIV.

    “Doom is just a name, but when you speak to it to become a healing product, it does. People get healed and delivered through doom,” a post on the church’s Facebook account reads.

    Testimonies of people who have supposedly been healed by Doom have also been posted on the Facebook page.

    In another interview, , the pastor is heard saying: “The truth is, Doom can heal people in the right way.”

  • US election 2016 result: Historic win for Somali-American woman

    A Somali-born former refugee has made history by becoming the first Somali legislator in the United States.

    Ilhan Omar, 34, who wears the hijab, was elected to serve in Minnesota's state house of representatives.

    The Muslim Somali-American woman becomes the highest-ranking Somali elected to office in the US.

    Her election comes just days after US President-elect Donald Trump accused Somali immigrants in Minnesota of "spreading their extremist views".

    Minnesota has the nation's largest Somali community - about 50,000 according to the US census.

    Celebrating her victory, Ms Omar said she would be the "voice for the marginalised" in the state parliament.

    "I think I bring the voice of young people. I think I bring the voice of women in the East African community. I bring the voice of Muslims. I bring the voice of young mothers looking for opportunities," Minnesota Public Radio quoted her as saying.

    Ms Omar escaped from Somalia with her family at the start of the civil war when she was eight years old.

    They lived in a Kenyan refugee camp for four years, before moving to the US and settling in a Somali-American neighbourhood in Minnesota.
