Hmmm, viva la libertad de prensa…, pero es lo que demanda la revolución bolivariana:
O governo da Venezuela proibiu as notícias sobre a falta de alimentos e outros bens e vai multar o canal de televisão Globovisión por ter transmitido uma reportagem sobre o assunto.
La doctora Nima Saeed, representante actual de la Organización Mundial de la Salud en Paquistán, uno de los tres países en los que la enfermedad es aún endémica, ha añadido que “nada se podrá hacer mientras que los talibán levanten la prohibición o permitan la vacunación de los niños en Waziristán Norte”. UCANEWS:
A Taliban ban on a polio vaccination drive is preventing Pakistan from finally eradicating the crippling disease, the country’s World Health Organization (WHO) representative said on Wednesday.
“Nothing can really be done unless the Taliban lifts the ban or allows the vaccination of children in North Waziristan,” Dr

, the acting WHO representative in Pakistan, told ucanews.com.
He was speaking in Islamabad after five new cases of polio were confirmed this week in the country’s restive tribal areas, where the Taliban banned the vaccination drive in June last year, accusing health workers of being spies.
The ban was imposed a year after Dr Shakil Afridi, a physician, conducted a polio vaccine campaign in Abbottabad as a ruse to help pinpoint the location of former al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden. The terror chief was later killed in a US military raid in May 2011.
At least 20 immunization workers have been killed by suspected Taliban militants in Pakistan since the imposition of the vaccine ban. Many areas are now considered too dangerous to continue the program.
Pakistan is one of only three countries left in the world where polio is endemic, according to the WHO. In 2011 it had 198 confirmed cases, the highest number of cases in any nation in the world.

The Palestinian Supreme Fatwa Council on Tuesday issued a Fatwa decreeing that men and women should only talk on social network sites if they are seeking a partner for marriage.
The Fatwa Council listed a number of restrictions that men and women must comply with while talking on social network sites, according to a statement.
“The main purpose of the conversation should be marriage through legal ways, and it shouldn’t have any other goals which could mark a violation of Sharia law. Any personal details, which could arouse lust, must not be addressed during the conversation.“
Siempre pensando mal. Toda relación entre hombre y mujer tiene que venir determinada por la lujuria. 🙄 Qué cansinos.

Esta noticia es de hace unos días, pero merece la pena bloguear sobre ella:
At least 142 corpses were found in a northeastern Nigerian town after an attack by suspected members of the Islamist militant group, Boko Haram, local officials said.
“Yesterday alone 87 corpses were evacuated from the road and bushes,” Saidu Yakubu, a spokesman for the Borno State Environmental Protection Agency, said yesterday in a statement handed to reporters in Benisheik town.
Suspected militants dressed in military uniforms attacked the town on Sept. 17, burning at least 100 houses and shops in the raid, according to Garba Ngamdu, the head of labor affairs in the Borno state government. The raid followed a Sept. 7 attack on the town that left 11 civilians dead, according to local residents.
