The body of a missing five-year-old girl has been found in a wooden box filled with cement that her mother was using as a bedside table. Officers discovered Milagros Nazareth Martin's body in the Argentinian capital of Buenos Aires after her concerned father contacted them because he had not seen her for months. The girl's mother, Vanesa Mansilla, has reportedly been charged with "culpable homicide". She is said to have first told the father that she had placed the child in the care of social services because of the poor living conditions in her home. When police turned up to search her house, she reportedly admitted her daughter had died but that she did not know what to do and was "scared". Fearing her other two children, aged three and seven, would be taken from her, she is said to have placed the body in a bag, which was put into a box that was filled with cement taken from a nearby building site. "She used the box with the body inside as a bedside table in her … [Read more...] about Body of girl, 5, found in concrete block used as bedside table by mother in Buenos Aires
DOHA, Qatar — Jean Marc Berger left his home in Geneva to follow Switzerland’s adventures in the World Cup with perhaps the most neutral piece of headgear in existence. His protection against the blazing Gulf sun would extend no further than a red cap emblazoned with a white cross, a homage to the Swiss flag. By the time he arrived at Stadium 974 for his country’s second game, though, the cap was long gone. In its place, Berger, 52, had adopted a ghutra, the traditional head scarf worn by men across the Arabian Peninsula. His was red and white, a nod to his homeland. Holding it in place was an agal, the tightly bound black band around which the scarf is carefully folded. It had never occurred to Berger, before arriving in Qatar, that he would wear one. He had worried that doing so might be seen as offensive by his hosts, assumed that it might be seen as making light of Qatari culture, feared that it would transgress local sensitivities. “I did not think it would be possible,” he … [Read more...] about It’s the World Cup’s Hot Accessory.

The charity boss at the centre of the Buckingham Palace racism row and her six siblings grew up in the 1960s as the "only black family on our road. Ngozi Fulani, now 61, said her parents, who had moved to Britain from Barbados as part of the Windrush generation, "embraced everybody" and never allowed the "barriers we faced outside" to be brought into the house in Kilburn, northwest London. In an interview with Future Hackney, Ms Fulani said her father would take them to house parties because "black people were not allowed" in pubs. She was once "shooed" away by a white teacher at school, while her brothers would "come home with their faces swollen" having been bullied by their peers or attacked by the police, she added. And when her sister gave birth at the age of 17, her white social worker used a racist term to describe her baby. "We were very aware from the get-go that even though we were born here, we were not welcome," she wrote. The interview concluded with Ms … [Read more...] about Who is Ngozi Fulani – the domestic abuse charity founder subjected to racism at Buckingham Palace?
BBC veteran royal correspondent Nicholas Witchell has sparked anger after calling the racism allegations at Buckingham Palace an “ill-judged blunder”. Long-time journalist Witchell was on BBC News discussing the incident at an anti-domestic violence reception during a segment on Wednesday's (Nov 30) teatime show.

BOSTON — In its spirit, the arrival of Prince William and Princess Catherine of Wales to Boston on Tuesday landed somewhere between Kabuki and comic operetta. Disembarking from the plane that brought her here, the former Kate Middleton wore a slim pantsuit, a whopping pair of sapphire earrings and the stilettos that are her version of Crocs. For a later City Hall appearance, she would change into a tartan Burberry frock, an Alexander McQueen coat, more modest earrings by Shyla London and further spike heels. The prince was his wife’s visual foil in a two-button suit of dark navy with a single vent, a white spread collar shirt and a figured necktie. Notice from the royals’ Kensington Palace offices alerted the press that their highnesses were traveling to the United States to promote their environmental innovation initiative, the Earthshot Prize — headed by Hannah Jones, the former chief sustainability officer at Nike — and that they “won’t be distracted by other things.” Their … [Read more...] about A Royal Visit, at a Careful Distance
