News / Mid-Day/ International  
Microsoft founder Bill Gates is the world's second richest man, having a net worth more than 90 billion USD, and he is known to be one of the most humble human beings in the world. The internet witnessed his act of humility recently when the billionaire was seen waiting in a line outside a fast-food store in the United States for burger and fries. The picture was clicked by an admirer and shared on Facebook that went viral. Mike Galos, a Microsoft Alumni, recently shared a picture of the billionaire on Facebook with a caption, "When you're worth about $100,000,000,000, run the largest charity in the history of the world and stand in line for a burger, fries, and Coke at Dick's like the rest of us..." In the picture Bill Gates, wearing a red sweatshirt and a pair of jeans, hands in his pockets was seen standing in a queue at a joint. In spite of being the second richest man in the world, Gates patiently waited for his turn to buy burgers and fries just like the rest. ..

Top US senator urges meeting between Donald Trump and Imran Khan

19 hours ago  
News / Mid-Day/ International  
Islamabad: Leading US Senator Lindsey Graham vowed Sunday to urge President Donald Trump to meet Imran Khan to boost Washington's Afghanistan peace efforts, calling the Pakistani prime minister an "agent of change". The Republican -- an influential ally of Trump -- made the comments in Islamabad after meeting with the Pakistani leader, saying Khan was a "new partner" who could potentially help with a peace deal in Afghanistan. "I'm going to urge him (Trump) to meet with the prime minister as soon as practical," Graham told reporters, saying he believed Khan and Trump would "hit if off" because they have "similar personalities". "Prime Minister Khan is the agent of change that I've been looking for," he added. Ties between Washington and Islamabad have soured recently, with US officials repeatedly accusing Pakistan of turning a blind eye to or even collaborating with the Afghan Taliban, which launch attacks in Afghanistan from alleged havens along the border between the two countries. ..

Pope Francis visit to CentAm highlights church ministry to migrants

18 hours ago  
News / Mid-Day/ International  
Guatemala City: When Pope Francis visits Panama this week, he arrives not only as the first Latin American pontiff to visit Central America but as perhaps the world's most prominent advocate for migrants at a time when migration has become a pressing political issue in the region and elsewhere. The Argentine-born son of Italian immigrants has long held the issue dear to his heart and has signaled that it will be a central theme during the trip, which comes as the latest caravan of Central Americans is wending its way toward the US-Mexico frontier and President Donald Trump's promised border wall has led to the longest government shutdown in the country's history. Francis' emphasis on fundamental Christian teaching about welcoming the stranger, clothing the naked and feeding the hungry has been a breath of sustenance for those involved in efforts to aid migrants in Central America and Mexico, where Catholic priests, nuns and laypeople have taken the lead on attending to migrants amid ..

La Paz: Bolivian authorities say a bus rolled over on a mountain road in the southern part of the Andean country, then tumbled 100 meters (330 feet) into a ravine, killing at least 13 people and injuring 26 more. Local media said four of the dead were part of a soccer delegation from Argentina that was in Bolivia to participate in a festival in the Sucre region. Police said Sunday's crash happened in Cieneguillas, a town in the Tarija region south of La Paz. The accident came a day after a highway accident in another part of southern Bolivia in which two buses collided head-on, killing at least 22 people and injuring 37. Deadly bus crashes are common in Bolivia's highlands where narrow highways often wind next to steep precipices. Catch up on all the latest Crime, National, International and Hatke news here.

Donald Trump: Protection to immigrants in return of wall funds

19 hours ago  
News / Mid-Day/ International  
Washington: US President Donald Trump launched a new plan to end a government shutdown, which has been ongoing for nearly a month, by offering protection from deportations for some undocumented immigrants in exchange for $5.7 billion for constructing a wall on the US-Mexico border. The Democrats, however, rejected the deal as a "non-starter" and called on Trump to open the government before negotiations on immigration could start. Trump offered that he would give protection from deportation for young people brought to the country illegally as children (Dreamers) and also extend it to those with temporary protected status (TPS) after fleeing countries affected by natural disasters or violence. The president also called for $800 million in "urgent humanitarian assistance" and $805 million for drug detection technology to help secure US ports of entry. Trump proposed a slew of measures to increase border security, including an increase in law enforcement, saying he was offering a "commo..
                 

Bomb blast rocks Syrian capital; kills three and wounds nine people

21 hours ago  
News / Mid-Day/ International  
Damascus: A bomb blast hit the capital of war-torn Syria on Sunday and a "terrorist" was arrested, state media said, in a rare attack in the city that has been largely insulated from violence. The explosion came as another bomb in the northern city of Afrin killed three people and wounded nine others, according to a war monitor, on the first anniversary of a Turkish offensive on the Kurdish-majority region. Also on Sunday Israel said it intercepted a rocket fired from Syria after Damascus accused the Jewish state of carrying out air raids on the south of the country. State news agency SANA said a "bomb blast" had hit southern Damascus "without leaving any victims". "There is confirmation of reports that a terrorist has been arrested," it said. The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights war monitor reported, however, a "huge explosion" near a military intelligence office in southern Damascus that left a number of people dead and wounded. "The explosion took place near a sec..
