JAPAN: Officials in the city of Iga have been forced to issue a statement confirming they are not suffering a shortage of ninjas after a deluge of applications for the role of the skilled assassins.
The confusion occurred after a US journalist reported that the city was struggling to recruit ninja-performers at a new ninja museum due to a labour shortage.
Local officials said in a statement that they were not hiring ninjas “so please be careful.”
ITALY: Police evicted Roma families from a camp in Rome yesterday in defiance of an order by the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR).
Around 300 people were forcibly removed in dawn raids with accusations that excessive force was used.
Right-wing Interior Minister Matteo Salvini said: "Legality, order and respect before anything else.” It is not clear whether the families will be rehoused.
KENYA: Another endangered rhino died yesterday after being transferred to a new national park in Kenya as the government announced the results of investigations into previous deaths.
It was the 10th black rhino to die with autopsies suggesting the water at the Tsavo East National Park was too salty and causing them harm.
They were moved there to start a new rhino population. It is believed only 5,500 black rhinos survive with 750 of them in Kenya.
TURKEY: The Human Rights Monument in the Turkish capital Ankara has finally been released as police removed the barriers yesterday that had surrounded it for 430 days.
The Yuksel Street monument was the centre of protests by educators Nuriye Gulmen and Semih Ozakca who staged a hunger strike to demand their jobs back after they were sacked in President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s purges.
The mobile police stations that were installed to monitor demonstrations will remain in place.
