ALGERIA’S ailing President Abdelaziz Bouteflika has been forced out of office by the country’s army following six weeks of mass protests. The 82-year-old was ousted in the wake of the Arab Spring style demonstrations led by young people demanding change in the North African nation. His departure was hastened when army chief of staff Lieutenant General Ahmed Gaed Salah demanded the veteran ruler be declared immediately unfit for office. Bouteflika has largely disappeared from public view since suffering a stroke in 2013. Hundreds of students marched early on Tuesday through the capital Algiers, many carrying banners which read "the army and the people are one" and "game over". They called for a new system in a country where more than one in four Algerians under the age of 30 - some 70 percent of the population - are unemployed.

SUBSCRIBE Nov. 10, 2018 / 4:32 AM GMT By Rich Schapiro When John Ruffo showed up at a federal courthouse in Brooklyn on Nov. 9, 1998, he already had a unique resume. NYU graduate. Computer expert. Convicted $350 million con man. Ruffo arrived at the courthouse to turn over the electronic monitoring bracelet he had been ordered to wear. His next stop was supposed to be a federal prison in New Jersey to start a 17-year sentence. But Ruffo never turned up at the prison. By that evening, he had gained another title: federal fugitive. Ruffo left a trail of wreckage in his wake — former business partners wiped out, family members, including his wife and mother, forced out of the homes they put up for his bond. Twenty years later, Ruffo’s whereabouts remain unknown. U.S. Marshals are still hunting for him. His former wife is still … [Read more...] about John Ruffo, elusive NYC swindler, still on the run after 20 years
A YOUNG woman whose cheating husband was jailed for life after he stabbed her at least 46 times has vowed to stand by him, a court heard. Michael Barnard, 25, was locked up for 20 years after he was convicted of attempted murder following the horrific attack at their home in Hextable, Kent. Shannon Barnard, 21, suffered multiple wounds to her limbs and body, including her lungs, liver and bowels, as Barnard repeatedly knifed her, telling her she "had to die". Fourteen injuries were to her chest and breasts alone, with four penetrating her internal organs, and 10 to her abdomen. Both her lungs collapsed and she has also been left with substantial and numerous scars which may require skin grafts. Mrs Barnard spent 17 days in hospital. She later told police she felt "every blow" and thought she would die. Doctors said she was "extremely fortunate" to have survived. But Maidstone Crown Court in Kent heard on Friday that she has forgiven her husband and plans to start a family with him on … [Read more...] about Wife stabbed 46 times by cheating husband vows to take him back after 20 year jail term
