At long last, Tina Turner and Erwin Bach have tied the knot. The “Proud Mary” singer, 73, and the music producer, 57, were recently wed in Zurich, Switzerland.
Together for 27 years, Reuters reports that the newlyweds had a civil ceremony “a few days ago.”The couple will reportedly celebrate their nuptials with a Buddhist ceremony at Tina’s lakefront mansion on the banks of Lake Zurich.
This is the second marriage for the Tina, who was previously wed to musician Ike Turner from 1962 to 1976. During their turbulent union, Ike — who died from a cocaine overdose in 2007 — often physically abused the “River Deep, Mountain High” singer. Tina chronicled their volitive romance in her 1986 memoir, I, Tina.
Saidia – Ousted Egyptian president is having such a bad time right now, after his fall from grace, the ousted president finds himself charged with “breaking free” from the prison back in 2011.
The general prosecutor just sent the files of Morsi’s case (Wadi Natroun) to a judge, and the reason is to officially look into the case and decide if the ousted president will be subjected to a trial or sent back to the prison in order to finish his sentencing, that is if the claims of his prison break are true.
This came as a shock to us because we never thought that a person who won free elections would end up in a prison cell for crimes he might have committed decades ago, or imprisoned on politics-related charges.
Saidia – Breaking news coming from Egypt’s Sinai as violence continue in the once tourists-magnet area of Egypt.
Reuters reported today that armed groups attacked an Egyptian military camp in Sinai while eyewitnesses tell reuters that loud explosions could be heard from the Egyptian border town of Rafah. The attack comes as security in the Sinai peninsula deteriorated following the fall of ousted president Morsi from power by widespread demonstrations supported by the Armed Forces. The main suspects are believed to be Morsi loyalists who warned of violence before and after Morsi’s ouster from power.
Check out Reuters for more details concerning the situation in Egypt and Sinai.
Saidia – Reports from different media outlets, 3 people were killed and over 15 seriously injured in the latest attacks against army and police positions.
Fingers of accusation points out to the Muslim Brotherhood’s military wing for the latest terrorist attack in Sinai which took the lives of 3 people and injured over 15 following in an attack on a bus while an explosion also rocked an empty police HQ (under construction). The Muslim Brotherhood is largely being held responsible for previous and current attacks against army and police targets. These attacks came following warnings from the leadership of the Muslim Brotherhood that the latter will not stay silent in the face of what it described as an “army coup” against the “legitimacy” of ousted president Morsi.
Sinai has become since the fall of president Mubarak, a safe haven for extremists, terrorists and surely militiamen of the Muslim Brotherhood who are believed to be stationed in the mountains of Sinai.
Saidia – Reuters reports today that ousted president Morsi has been questioned for supposed crimes committed during his one year as president of Egypt by the general prosecution.
Morsi, who was ousted through a popular uprising supported by the military which subsequently used its influence and weight to topple the president and moreover apprehend his family and entourage while at the same time closing pro-Morsi TV station and getting accused by the Muslim Brotherhood and other pro-Morsi supporters of turning a blind eye on vandalizing acts by anti-Morsi protesters and conducting illegal raids, arrests and even assassination against leaders and members of the Muslim Brotherhood. Something the army and a huge percentage of Egyptians refuse and rebuff.
However, it appears that the fears of the pro-Morsi camp may come sooner than they thought as “their legitimate president” found himself being questioned by the general prosecution with accusation as harsh and serious as conspiring against the country and giving orders to kill unarmed protesters making his previous fears, the accusation of his supposed prison break, the least of his worries at the moment.
Saidia – Reuters reports today that Japan is moving towards enhancing its military capabilities in order to be able to confront threats by neighboring arms-addicts China and NK (aka North Korea).
But why? Its simple guys, China and Japan claim sovereignty over some small islands which were the scene of some near-to-happen confrontation between Japanese and Chinese battleships stationed in the perimeter of the islands. Analysts are fearing the worst (A War between two of the World’s most powerful countries) while other say both Japanese and Chinese leaderships are keen to keep things cold for the sake of their prosperity. Now you might be wondering what North Korea has to do with all this, right? well North Korea is a close ally of China and if the latter enters a war, NK will doubtfully sit around doing nothing.
It would be really sad to see things go south between Japan and China, although a War won’t solve things, sitting around won’t change things either.
