A Muslim man who admits to killing a peaceful Muslim shopkeeper in Scotland days before Easter, claims that he committed the heinous act because he believes the victim disgraced the prophet Muhammad by wishing Christians a "very happy Easter" on Facebook.
As previously reported, 40-year-old Asad Shah, an Ahmadi Muslim, was stabbed to death outside of his store in Glasgow on the Thursday before Easter, just hours after he took to Facebook to wish Christians a happy Easter.
Tanveer Ahmed, a 32-year-old taxi driver from Bradford, West Yorkshire, was arrested and charged with the murder. more >>
After two previous auctions that put the ever-famous chair of J.K. Rowling up on sale with figures not reaching $30,000, the "Harry Potter" chair has now been won by an anonymous bidder at $394,000.
According to The Associated Press, Heritage Auctions said the chair is now owned by an anonymous private collector. While the winner is unidentified, the previous owner, Gerald Gray, was surprised by the huge number that the new owner was willing to dish out for the chair.
Gray, chief executive of AutoKontrol in Sarasota, Florida said he is now planning to donate 10 percent of the amount to the author's charity, in honor of Rowling's first move of donating the chair to charity in 2002. more >>
The Romanian Pentecostal parents of five children who were seized by Norwegian child services last November due to spanking allegations have finally regained custody of their infant son following a court ruling, the family's spokesman announced.
The five children of Ruth and Marius Bodnariu were removed from the family's home in Naustdal by the Barnevernet (Norwegian child services) on Nov. 16, 2015, and were placed in three separate foster homes after one of their daughters told her school principal about how her parents spank her and her siblings as a form of discipline, which is illegal under Norwegian law.
After months of limited visitation rights with their children, the family's spokesman, Pastor Cristian Ionescu, a Chicago-based pastor and vice president of the Romanian Pentecostal Union in the United States and Canada, announced this week that a Norwegian judge has ruled that the parents are to be reunited with their yongest son, Ezekiel. more >>
