Question of the Day
Illegal aliens arrested in church
JOHANNESBURG — Police raided a downtown church sheltering hundreds of illegal aliens from Zimbabwe and said yesterday that they would be deported to the troubled neighboring nation.
Bishop Paul Verryn had been sheltering about 1,200 people at the Central Methodist Church, which has become a haven for Zimbabweans fleeing their country’s political and economic meltdown. In addition, 500 were sleeping on the street outside the church.
Bishop Verryn said police arrived at about 11 p.m. Wednesday and began hauling people — many in pajamas — away in scenes reminiscent of apartheid-era raids.
New evidence revives teen-murder probe
ORANJESTAD — Aruban prosecutors said yesterday that authorities are investigating new information in the Natalee Holloway case provided by a Dutch crime reporter.
Information from reporter Peter R. de Vries “may help considerably” in resolving what happened to the American, who vanished during a May 2005 school vacation to the Dutch Caribbean island, the prosecutor’s office said in a statement.
The statement did not specify the new material but said it “may shed a new light on the mode” in which Miss Holloway died and the “method by which her body disappeared.”
EU orders garbage out of Naples
BRUSSELS — The European Union ordered Italy yesterday to clean up Naples within a month — or face legal action.
Some 250,000 tons of backlogged trash has been piling up on the streets of Naples since collection came to a near halt in December.
Collectors have stopped picking up garbage in Naples and the Campania region because there is no more room for the trash at dumps.
