Briefly: St. Patrick’s Day mob rampages through London, Ontario
Question of the Day
LONDON, Ontario — Revelers set a large street fire and battled police and fire crews who tried to intervene after St. Patrick’s Day celebrations got out of hand in this town in Ontario province, authorities said Sunday.
Police said at least 11 people had been arrested and more arrests were expected as authorities review video of the disturbance and witness statements.
At least 17 police vehicles were damaged. No serious injuries were reported.
The trouble began Saturday night, when a crowd of about 1,000 people, many of whom had been drinking, celebrated in the streets in a district near Fanshawe College that is heavily populated by students and has been the site of previous smaller disturbances.
District Fire Chief Jim Holmes said fire crews were called to the scene after revelers flipped over a TV news van and set it on fire, but the crews were driven back when some people in the crowd pelted them with rocks and bottles.
Police probe mysterious deaths at two hospitals
MONTEVIDEO — Uruguayan police said an investigation into dozens of possibly induced deaths at two hospitals has led to the detention of at least two people.
Police inspector Jose Luis Roldan said Sunday that officials suspect hospital workers brought a sort of poison from Brazil and gave it to patients who were in critical condition.
Judge Rolando Vomero, who is overseeing the case, told the newspaper El Observador that hospital staff and relatives of alleged victims reported what could be dozens of cases.
Diplomat’s daughter death prompts fear of police
CARACAS — The killing of a Chilean diplomat’s teenage daughter by police is reigniting concerns among Venezuelans about excessive force by officers and their alleged involvement in rampant violent crime.
Karen Berendique, 19, was riding in a vehicle with her older brother and another young man when police at a checkpoint opened fire early Saturday in the western city of Maracaibo, said her father, Fernando Berendique, Chile’s honorary consul in the city.
He said they ignored a police command to stop, fearing the officers might be robbers.
