It would be noted that Umrah is a pilgrimage to Islam’s two holiest sites in the cities of mecca and medina and could be undertaken at any time of the year and it is distinct from the hajj, which takes place once annually.

NORTH KOREA/RAIN

North korean leader, kim jong un has mobilized the military to carry out relief work in areas recently hit by heavy rains amid concerns over an economic crisis and food shortages in the country.

It was reported that the ruling worker’s party’s central military commission held a meeting of its chapter in the eastern province of south Hamgyong to discuss damage and recovery from the downpour. 

It was gathered that the meeting came amid concerns over a crisis in a reclusive economy that has already been dogged by international sanctions aimed at curbing its nuclear and weapons programs.

Meanwhile, in June this year, Kim had said the country was facing a tense food situation due to the coronavirus pandemic outbreak and last year’s typhoons though north Korea has not recorded any covid-19 cases but it had closed borders, halted trade and imposed strict prevention measures, seeing the pandemic as an issue of national survival.

The upcoming election in Nicaragua has lost all credibility amid a string of arrests of presidential hopefuls and the disqualification of the main opposition party set to challenge president Daniel Ortega in the November polls.

The United States Secretary of State, Antony Blinken stated this in a statement, saying the central american nation’s electoral process, including its eventual results has lost all credibility.

Blinken said the move to disqualify the citizens alliance for liberty demonstrates that president Ortega and his wife with his vice, Rosario Murillo have a desire to remain in power at all costs.

He noted that the president’s latest regime was undemocratic and it would injure Nicaragua’s prospects for a free and fair election later this year.

Report revealed that Ortega had governed Nicaragua from 1979 to 1990 and returned to power in 2007, winning two successive re-election bids.

KABUL/TALIBAN

An afghan air force pilot has been killed in a bomb blast in Kabul.

Meanwhile, Taliban spokesman, Zabihullah Mujahid had claimed the attack in a statement, threatening to introduce a programme that would see us-trained afghan pilots targeted and eliminated.

Reacting, the United States and afghan officials believed it is a deliberate effort to destroy Afghanistan’s Corps of Us– and Nato-trained military pilots as fighting escalates across the country.

SPORT

Chelsea has agreed in principle a club-record deal of 115 Million Euro to re-sign striker, Romelu Lukaku from inter Milan.

Report says the paperwork is now with club lawyers and once is formalised, Lukaku will undergo a medical and sign a five-year contract with Chelsea.
