World Cup captains will not wear OneLove armband due to Fifa ‘sanctions’ – BBC News

Published

on



England, Wales and other European nations will not wear the OneLove armband at the World Cup in Qatar because of the threat of players being booked.

The captains of nine countries, including England’s Harry Kane and Gareth Bale of Wales, had planned to wear the armband to promote diversity and inclusion.

A joint statement from seven football associations said they could not put their players “in a position where they could face sporting sanctions”.

“We are very frustrated by the Fifa decision which we believe is unprecedented,” the statement read.

“We were prepared to pay fines that would normally apply to breaches of kit regulations and had a strong commitment to wearing the armband.

“However, we cannot put our players in the situation where they might be booked or even forced to leave the field of play”, the statement added.

    At this point, they just want to spite Qataris and show them that they don't care about the county's traditions and values. Qatar isn't a country notoriously known for abusing LGBT people. Even if you want to look at it from a democracy perspective, the vast majority of their citizens wouldn't want this, who the hell do these people think they are trying to shove their values down others' throats just because they had the audacity to host the world cup. The Emir of Qatar said everyone's welcome when asked if gay people will be allowed, but it's clear as day these disgusting people just want to agitate the locals as opposed to advocating gay rights….just piss off!

    God only forbids anything that will damage his people from the inside out, and orders what is good for his people too.. really God doesn't want anything from us, from us back to us

    normally God has emphasized and repeated it in the Koran, do not let humans make damage, or destroy something that has been created properly, according to its function, so if there has been a destruction of that balance, just wait for the consequences

Cyclone Idai: Flying over flooded Mozambique – BBC News

Published

on



As Mozambique counts the cost of Cyclone Idai, the BBC’s Africa editor Fergal Keane joined a helicopter flight over some of the worst-affected areas.

The pilot pointed towards the east across the expanse of brown water. “We are 15 miles from the sea,” he said, “but it feels as if we are right over it.” He was right. Below us, farmland that had been home to thousands of people had disappeared.

Charities say thousands of people are stranded by catastrophic flooding, clinging to roofs or stuck in trees.

About 300 people are confirmed dead in Mozambique and Zimbabwe, but the toll is expected to rise.

Killer whale hunts and eats great white shark | BBC News

Published

on



A solitary killer whale, or orca, has been filmed hunting and killing a great white shark in an “astonishing” attack off the coast of South Africa.

Scientists said it was “unprecedented” and showed the exceptional predatory skills of killer whales.

Two orcas in particular off South Africa’s coast have been observed before working together to hunt and kill sharks, including great whites.

Dr Alison Towner, a marine biologist from Rhodes University in Grahamstown, South Africa, led the study.

“This caught us off guard,” said shark biologist Dr Towner.
