The United States Calls For Yemen Ceasefire

The war in Yemen has killed or injured at least 17,000 civilians and put eight million people at the brink of starvation.  The United States has called for a ceasefire and the launch of peace talks within 30 days.  It was the US Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo who is promoting the interim stop and laying down of arms and missiles by the Houthi rebels and the Saudi-backed coalition.  The British Foreign Secretary has joined in, backing the American initiative.  Pictures of starving and malnourished children and adults lying in hospital bed looking is shameful to see.


World’s Tallest Statue Of Indian Hero

The Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi unveiled the Statue of Unity, the tallest statue in the world, made in the image of Vallabhbai Patel.  It honours the independence hero who helped to unite the nation after the turbulent independence.  It is situated on the  banks of the Narmada river in Gujurat and was designed by Indian sculptor Ram V. Sutar.  While the Mr Modi sees it as a source of inspiration, the protesters at the event see it as a waste of money and the farmers wanted compensation for their land.
