Pictures surfaced on the ‘net late last night of Osama Bin Laden’s dead corpse.
While many saw the resemblance in these pictures, the White House has officially said that a death photo of Osama has not been released; and what is currently circulating is not real.
The fake picture was initially published by the
Middle East online newspaper themedialine.org on 29 April 2009, with a warning from the editor that it was “unable to ascertain whether the photo is genuine or not”.
What do you think? Do you think Osama was really killed recently or a long time ago and this is just for political purposes?
Three persons were seriously injured when police opened fire in a village in Kallupatti Taluk, about 40 km from
following clashes between two communities, authorities said today. Madurai
Police said the clash in Villoor village, in which 100 people were arrested yesterday, ensued after people belonging to the dominant community had seized the two-wheeler of Thanga Pandian, a Dalit resident of the village who had rode through the street where members of the dominant community resided.
The members of the dominant community had banned the Dalits, living in the neighbouring street, from riding on two wheelers or wearing slippers while walking in their street, police said.
Five persons of the dominant community were arrested in connection with the seizure of Mr. Thanga Pandian’s vehicle.
However, even as the Madurai SP Asra Garg was holding peace talks at the police station with the local people belonging to both the communities, people belonging to dominant community pelted stones, demanding the release of the five arrested persons, injuring some policemen, officials said.
The cars of the SP and DSPs were also damaged in the stone pelting, they said.
When the two groups clashed again, the situation “went out of control” and the efforts of the police to quell the violence by lathi charge and deploying tear gas shells were in vain, they said.
The police subsequently opened fire, in which three were seriously injured and 15 others suffered minor injuries, they said. Hundred persons were also arrested, they said.
SP Asra Garg today warned that severe action would be taken against those committing atrocities against Dalits.
The situation is under control at Villoor village after police has been deployed, officials said.
