A woman was horrified to learn that her husband's remains were stolen from his grave.

Police in China, said that a group of thieves ransacked a cemetery in Henan, and stole urns filled with cremated remains of a number of families in order to extort money from them.

One of the victims who was identified as Mr. Liu, said that she received a call from the Hongshan Cemetery in Xinyan, saying that her late husband's grave was vandalized and his remains were missing.

When she went to the grave, she discovered that some other graves nearby were also broken and vandalized.

She found a phone number on the looted tombs. When Mrs. Liu called the number, the person who answered demanded ransom of 20,000 yuan ($3,136) for the safe return of her husband's urn.

The family transferred the 20,000 yuan to the thieves. However, rather than turning over the remains, the despicable thieves demanded more money and gave no information on the whereabouts of the urn. In response, the family called police.

Henan police said that the culprits are likely a gang of organized criminals who travel the country and break into tombs to make money.

England rejects asylum petition of man because he failed to prove he is gay

Robert Kityo

A man is scared that he will be killed for being gay if he is deported from England.

35-year-old Robert Kityo was born in Uganda, and he was looking for asylum because he was being persecuted for being gay.

However, he now faces deportation from Manchester, after immigration officials said that he “failed to prove” his sexuality.

Kityo was taken to a deportation center after his last attempt to seek asylum was rejected by the Interior Ministry.

The decision came despite the fact that more than 30 people, including Dr. David Walker, who is the Bishop of Manchester, and the leaders of the LGBT groups in the city, sent letters in support of Mr. Kityo.

More than 1,900 people have signed a petition that he should be allowed to stay in the United Kingdom.

Kityo volunteers for a number of LGBT groups, including the Manchester Lesbian and Gay Foundation. He is also a member of a number of Christian church groups.

Kityo fears that he might be killed if he is sent back to Uganda, where homosexuality is illegal and he can be jailed if found guilty of homosexual acts.

Mr. Kityo arrived in the United Kingdom in 2011 with a student visa, and applied for asylum the following year. He said that his partner in Uganda is in jail for being gay and a warrant was issued for his arrest if he returned.

An immigration judge rejected Kityo’s application on appeal, saying that he did not believe Kityo will suffer persecution.

Mother and daughter die from poisoning on boat after boyfriend installed faulty exhaust system

Kelly Webster and Lauren Thornton

A man was arrested on a charge of manslaughter after installing a faulty exhaust system on their boat, resulting in the death of his girlfriend and her daughter, police in the United Kingdom said.

Now, 42-year-old Matthew Eteson of Preston, has been sentenced to serve two years in jail, which was suspended for two years, after being found guilty of manslaughter in connection with the deaths of 35-year-old Kelly Webster and 10-year-old Lauren Thornton.

According to the police investigation, Webster and Thornton were found dead in the sleeping compartment on board Eteson's boat on Lake Windermere.

The cause of death was poisoning by carbon monoxide from the exhaust system of a generator, which Eteson had installed on board.

Eteson was a registered and experienced installer. He fabricated an exhaust system for the generator and used the generator to power a fan heater in the passenger quarters.

The exhaust system was poorly designed and poorly constructed, using unsuitable materials. The generator was not secured or anchored to the floor and the joints in the exhaust pipework were very poorly fabricated.

The temperatures caused the pipework to fail as soft soldered joints melted, and as a result, the exhaust gases containing carbon monoxide were discharged into the boat.

In addition to this very poor standard of work, he neglected to test this system in the circumstances and under the electrical load for which he intended to use it, and he also knew that the carbon monoxide detectors on the boat had been disabled.

Tragically, the poor design and construction of the work he carried out on the exhaust system, led to the deaths of Webster and Thornton.

The court heard that Webster and Thornton, lost their lives because of his gross negligence and the obvious dangers that he created. They therefore found him criminally responsible for their deaths.

Officials in Indonesia, are planning to replace prison guards with crocodiles after some of them were caught smuggling drugs into prison.

Officials announced their plan to place crocodiles in prisons where drug offenders are being held.

Officials said that they want to reduce the possibility of death row inmates convicted on drug charges from escaping by bribing the guards.

The Drug Enforcement Agency has presented plans to build a new kind of prison, which will replace some of the human guards with crocodiles.

“You can’t bribe crocodiles. You cannot convince them to let prisoners escape,”anti-drug chief Budi Waseso said.

The plan is still on the drawing board at this point, but officials seem to be convinced that staffing the prison with fierce reptiles along with some human guards is a good idea.
