Blind mystic who predicted 9/11, ISIS and Boxing Day tsunami also foretold Britain quitting the EU

    Prophetess Baba Vanga - who died in 1996 aged 85 - was known as the 'Nostradamus from the Balkans'. The Bulgarian is revered in Russia for her 85% success rate when it comes to telling the future - with millions convinced that she possessed paranormal abilities. Now it transpires the clairvoyant made a staggering prophecy on Europe which theorists are linking to Brexit . In fact Baba predicted that Europe as we know it will “cease to exist” by the end of 2016.

Capital of India Dhaka

    The name of their country is Bangladesh and its capital Dhaka- this is what a primary school student in India replied when they were asked this very simple question. The student in question is from Kashiara-Raipur high school in Burdwan, a district in West Bengal, according to a report published in Anandabazar Patrika. The shocking answers came when a team visited schools in the district to inspect the standard of education especially general knowledge among the students, reports the Anandabazar Patrika.

In another nearby school, a studen...

36 dead in Istanbul Ataturk airport attack

    A gun and bomb attack on Istanbul's Ataturk international airport has killed 36 people and injured about 90. Three attackers opened fire near an entry point to the terminal and blew themselves up after police fired at them, officials say. Prime Minister Binali Yildirim said early signs suggested the so-called Islamic State was behind the attack. Recent bombings in Turkey have been linked to either IS or Kurdish separatists.

Ataturk airport was long seen as a vulnerable target, our Turkey correspondent adds, reporting from a plane stuck on the tarmac in Istanbul. There are X-ray scanners at the entrance to the terminal but security checks for cars are limited.Turkish President Recep Tayyip ...

David Cameron tells Jeremy Corbyn to resign for heaven’s sake

    David Cameron has called on Jeremy Corbyn to step down as leader of the Labour party. The Prime Minister made the call at Prime Minister's Questions on Wednesday. "I have to say to the honorable gentleman, frankly he talks about job insecurity and my two months to go," the PM said in response to a question about job insecurity. "It might be in my party’s interest for him to sit there – he’s not in the national interest. I would say: for heaven’s sake, man, go!" MPs of all parties were uncharacteristically quiet during the PMQs session, the first since the EU referendum. Mr Cameron has himself said he will step down by Conservative conference in October, with a new leader in place by then. Mr Corbyn has also come under sustained pressure from MPs to step down, but has refus...
