Police said that the three entered a travel agency and asked to use the bathroom. Then they took $900 in cash. They were also accused of entering Elegant Linen in Borough Park, and stealing a wallet containing credit cards from a store worker.

During events such as this, one of the most important elements is your strong stance, which is admirable. We are in the midst of an operation aimed at reaching the kidnappers and rescuing the students. The campaign is constantly evolving, day and night, and many activities are taking place in the field. As long as we have no other proof, our assumption is that the students are alive. Until now, no one has taken responsibility, and no demands have been presented.”

"The objective of the actions we are taking is to reach the kidnappers and the students as quickly as possible. We are focusing massive intelligence and operational efforts, including meticulous searches of the area. We do not know how long this will last, and much patience is required,” Ya’alon added.

Overnight, we arrested Hamas members discharged in the Shalit deal, with the clear message that not only are we working to free the students, but also when there is a kidnapping we will put back in prison those who we have previously released.”

A man who tried to slap an animal out of his way, was stung with 400 porcupine needles, according to photos uploaded to the Internet.

50-year-old Antonio Rodrigues Mororo of Brazil, sprung into action during a house party after one of his sons complained to him that his pregnant wife was afraid to enter because the animal sat next to the entrance.

Mororo of Niteroi, Rio de Janeiro, went to slap the animal and got stung four hundred times. It turned out the animal was a porcupine.

Despite going to a local hospital, where he received three anesthesia shots, his pain continued. Mororo was forced to get a tetanus shot and take antibiotics.

He is currently recovering with a hand full of holes. This was not the first time that a porcupine stung a person.

In January, a woman was rushed to a hospital after she was jumped by a porcupine, according to hospital officials in Brazil. The Brazilian woman has described her agony after suffering the bizarre incident when a porcupine fell on her head as she walked her dog.

Nabucco Sandra, 52, was left with about 200 spikes embedded into her scalp after the unfortunate mishap in Rio de Janeiro, on Monday. The homemaker was taken to a local hospital by neighbors where each spike was removed individually without anesthesia.

"I was caught by surprise," the woman said. "I felt something land on my head and then I felt the thorns with my hands. The pain was enormous. The surgeon took them out with tweezers. We stopped counting when we got to 150, but it must have been around 200," the woman recalled.

Nabucco saw the funny side of her injuries, saying that her strength helped her get through the painful incident. "I am a strong woman, an elderly person or a child would have died," she said.

According to an initial investigation, the porcupine fell from a lamppost onto her head.

Sanjay Kumar 
By: Aarav Sen

A businessman was arrested after faking his own death.

The man obtained a death certificate and proof that he was cremated before his family tried to claim nearly $2 million in life insurance money.

Sanjay Kumar, 45, of the United Kingdom, claimed that he died of “brain fever” in India, in a desperate attempt to clear his debts.

Kumar, who is originally of Delhi and held dual citizenship, flew to Delhi on a business trip.

During the trip, he emailed his wife Anju Kumar, 46, saying that he had fallen seriously ill and had been taken to a hospital.

Later, the mother of three received an email informing her that Sanjay Kumar had died and was cremated.

The family tried to claim their insurance policies, which totaled nearly $2 million.

The Southwark Crown Court heard that one insurance company became suspicious about the circumstances of the death, and launched an investigation.

Detectives found that Mrs. Kumar had wired about $2,500 via Western Union to her husband two days after he allegedly died.

The City of London Police’s Insurance Fraud Enforcement Department (IFED) also discovered that Sanjay Kumar was in serious debt.

The man had been the director of nine different companies since the 1990s, and complained of threats from creditors.

The couple had also re-mortgaged their house in Watford, Hertfordshire, on two occasions, leaving little or no equity.

After realizing his fraud had failed, Kumar returned to the United Kingdom under a false name to reunite with his family, but was quickly arrested.

The couple faced insurance fraud charges. Sanjay Kumar was sentenced to 30 months in prison.

Mrs. Kumar was also arrested, but denied being responsible or having anything to do with the life insurance fraud. She was sentenced to five months in prison suspended for two years.

The Heracles team was possibly affected by the disruption, as they went on to lose 2 to 0 at home. The black cat may also have provided some bad luck, as the team was awarded a penalty when replays showed it should have been just a free kick.

A Platinum Executive Travel spokesperson said: “We are the market leaders in the car rental industry and this is bad for us.”

A woman is in critical condition after being shot by her brother when she decided to break up with him.

49-year-old Andrea Dube of South Africa, began a sexual relationship with his sister on the advice of a traditional healer.

According to reports, the healer had advised the brother, who has committed a number of armed robberies, that he would become rich if he slept with his ​​sister.

35-year-old Nokuthula Dube, agreed to sleep with her brother so that he can become rich. Andrea Dube demanded to be exclusive with his sister and did not allow her to date other men.

However, after three years, Nokuthula was fed up and broke up with her brother Dube. She escaped to live with a friend in Diepsloot, Johannesburg.

The friend said that Nokuthula had enough of the relationship and sought refuge at her house. “She had agreed to sleep with her brother so that he may become rich, but later realized it was wrong and escaped,” the friend said.

This angered the brother, who went searching for her. When Andrea Dube found his sister he ordered her to come with him at gunpoint.
