Protesters Clash With Journalists Covering Sabarimala Temple Row

Protesters in Kerala, India, on October 16 attacked female journalists who were reporting on their attempt to stop women from entering the Sabarimala temple. Female protesters boarded a bus and shouted at assembled journalists. Dravika Trehan, a journalism student who recorded this video, says the women then dragged people off the bus. Despite warnings that they would be in contempt of court, protesters continued to express their disapproval at a ruling that overturned a centuries-long ban prohibiting women and girls over the age of 10 from worshiping at the temple. CNN-News18 reporter Radhika Ramaswamy was also attacked, and had her car’s windscreen and windows smashed as she traveled in Nilakkal with colleagues on October 17.

Friends Take Passing Notes to Next Level by Sending Messages Between 8 Floors

Meredith Dean’s friends, twins Kristen and Amanda Cella, moved into Dean’s apartment building in Charlotte, North Carolina. Instead of descending eight floors to welcome them, Meredith sent a homemade welcome sign down to them on a length of string. The twins eventually retrieved the sign from the side of the building after some difficulty and hilarity. After Dean hoisted the sign back to her apartment she discovered a fruit roll taped to the back of it. The edited video is made up of a series of Instagram stories recorded by Kristen Cella and Dean and uploaded to Facebook. Credit: Meredith Dean via Storyful

Israeli Police Pepper Spray Khan al-Amar Protesters During Demonstration

Protesters faced off against Israeli police at Khan al-Amar in the West Bank on October 19, during a demonstration against the planned destruction of the Bedouin village. The Palestine National Liberation Movement said that demonstrators were injured by police. Video from the scene shows Palestinian demonstrators and Israeli Police opposite each other, before physical clashes begin. It is unclear from the video which side instigated physical contact. Some demonstrators were pepper sprayed by the police, and one was dragged onto the road and arrested. A similar occurrence took place on October 17, where protesters were pepper sprayed and tasered. Bulldozers first entered the village on October 14, according to local media. Four protesters were reportedly arrested on October 15, according to the Palestinian National Liberation Movement and the Times of Israel. Fatou Bensouda, an International Criminal Court prosecutor, issued a statement on October 17 warning that the demolition of the Bedouin village could constitute a war crime. On October 17, UK Prime Minister Theresa May said that the destruction of the village could be a “major blow for the prospects of a two-state solution with Jerusalem as a shared capital”.

First Known Albino Slow Loris Released Back Into the Wild

An albino Sumatran slow loris has been returned to the wild after being rescued by International Animal Rescue (IAR) from a life of captivity. The nocturnal primate had been taken from the wild and kept as a pet before its rescue on August 31. The loris, a male, was cared for until its release into the Bukit Barisan Selatan National Park in Lampung Province, Sumatra. The loris was fitted with a special radio collar to help a specialized team track its progress in its natural habitat. The program director of IAR Indonesia, Karmele Llano Sanchez, said: “This is the first known albino loris in the world and, therefore, extremely rare. Thankfully, we are able to give this animal another chance to live and thrive in the wild where it belongs.” Credit: International Animal Rescue via Storyful

A Big Hand for This 'Zombie' Artist44s

A Big Hand for This 'Zombie' Artist

McLean Krieger decided to take his Halloween costume one step further this year. The artist made a zombie arm puppet which created the optical illusion that McLean was holding a dismembered arm. McLean told Storyful how this creative project came about: “I had the idea after seeing the more classic version of this costume, which is just a person holding their own severed hand. I specifically chose a zombie arm because the puppetry really sells the effect that it is a living hand”. He explained that the costume is not electronically controlled, despite how it appears. The ‘zombie hand’ is McLean’s real hand covered in liquid latex and sprinkled with sand and glitter, while the hand holding the wrist is fake. He added a fake firearm and cigar to complete his creepy look. Credit: McLean Krieger via Storyful

Eggs Recovered From Critically Injured Turtles

Vets at the Currumbin Wildlife Hospital Foundation were able to salvage eggs from two eastern long neck turtles that were brought into the operating room and had to be euthanised. The turtles had attempted to cross roads and had been hit and critically injured by cars, but had eggs in their reproductive systems. A spokesperson for the hospital said: “These turtles lay about four to 22 eggs and it takes around 60-80 days for them to hatch. We keep them in an incubator in our nursery and when they hatch, we will release them back into the pond near where mum was found. It can sometimes take 24 hours for the eggs to hatch so we let the little ones rest first before release.” The turtles, also known as snake-necked turtles, are frequently hit by vehicles, according to the New South Wales environmental department.
