A 72-year-old woman being treated in a German hospital was allegedly so annoyed by the noise her roommate’s ventilator was making that she turned it off—not once but twice, the Associated Press reported Thursday. Citing local authorities, the AP said that the unidentified woman was arrested and jailed on suspicion of attempted manslaughter after being hauled before a judge on Wednesday. Police and prosecutors accused her of switching off her roommate’s life support machine a second time despite being told by staff after the first incident that it was necessary to keep the 79-year-old woman alive. The ventilated patient had to be revived after the Tuesday evening fiasco, and remained in intensive care as of Thursday, authorities said.Read it at Associated Press
An Iranian man was killed by Iran’s security forces for honking his car horn in celebration of the nation’s elimination from the FIFA World Cup on Tuesday night, according to a report by a human rights group. Mehran Samak, 27, was reportedly one of many cheering for Iran’s 1-0 politically-charged loss to the United States in Qatar amid spasms of anti-government sentiment that have gripped the country in recent weeks, with many seeing Iran’s national soccer team as a symbol of the Islamic Republic. Samak, who allegedly honked his horn in Bandar Anzali, a city northwest of Tehran, “was targeted...
A father fought in vain to save his 1-year-old boy after a crocodile snatched the baby from a canoe and ate him alive in Malaysia on Thursday morning. The father and son were traveling on a river in Sabah, eastern Malaysia, during a fishing trip when the reptile struck. The dad was unable to rescue his child from the crocodile’s jaws and was himself left with bite wounds in the attempt. Villagers rescued the father—reportedly a Palauh tribesman in his 40s—after he managed to scramble to the banks. The crocodile briefly resurfaced later holding the baby’s body before dragging him down once again. “The father suffered serious head and body injuries. His son is still missing and search operations are ongoing,” said Samoa Rashin, head of the Lahad Datu Fire and Rescue Agency. He added that the dad had been taken to hospital for treatment and explained that many local villagers rely on the crocodile-infested waters for their livelihood and food. “We have warned them of the extra dangers at the moment and to be especially careful because the crocodile is likely to be still in the area,” Rashin said.Read it at Daily Mail

Chinese President Xi Jinping on Thursday blamed students frustrated by three years of COVID for the mass anti-government protests currently breaking out around China. The private comment came in a three-hour meeting in Beijing with European Council President Charles Michel, EU officials said, even as the Chinese government has refused to acknowledge the furious demonstrations. Michel “pleaded for use of vaccines and then raised the question of China’s measures and government measures,” one EU official said. “And the response we got from the president was explaining why there was protests, claiming that after three years of COVID he had an issue because people were frustrated. It was mainly students, or teenagers in university,” they added. China’s ruling communist party is facing its most overt domestic opposition in decades as rage about its stringent “zero-COVID” pandemic controls which have seen millions of people confined in continuing lockdowns.Read it at South China Morning Protest

For the first time, New York City has been named the most expensive metropolis in the world in an annual survey. The Big Apple tied with Singapore for the top spot in the Economist Intelligence Unit’s report, with the pair toppling 2021’s leader Tel Aviv down to third place. While Singapore has been the world’s most expensive city eight times in the last 10 years, New York has made its first ascent to the top thanks in part to the dollar’s soaring value as the Federal Reserve has raised interest rates to fight inflation. Los Angeles and San Francisco also moved up the list into the top ten most expensive cities worldwide, while six other U.S. cities—Atlanta, Charlotte, Indianapolis, San Diego, Portland and Boston—were among the 10 cities around the world that made the biggest moves upward in the rankings.Read it at The Guardian
A climate crisis protester was sentenced to 15 months’ imprisonment on Friday after she blocked traffic for 25 minutes in Australia. Deanna “Violet” Coco, 32, was also given an eight-month non-parole period as part of her sentence on top of a $1,700 fine for her part in an April 13 demonstration that blocked one lane of the five city-bound lanes on the Sydney Harbour Bridge. Coco had pleaded guilty to seven charges brought after she parked a truck on the bridge and stood on its roof with a lit flare. Police removed her and others from the blockade after just 25 minutes. Her lawyer, Mark Davis, said it was “outrageous” that Coco had been denied bail before her appeal hearing in March. “You always get appeals bail unless you’re a violent offender and you haven’t abided by the terms of your bail,” Davis added. “This is totally disproportionate, it’s done to deter other protesters, in effect it’s sending a message.” Coco conducted her protest as part of Fireproof Australia, a group that splintered off from climate activism organization Extinction Rebellion last year “to be more disruptive,” Coco previously told The Guardian.Read it at The Guardian
