Hitler Youth ‘carols’ planted on charity CD

BERLIN: Some 50,000 CDs of Christmas carols sent to households in Germany by a children’s charity actually contained the words to pro-Nazi songs sung by the Hitler Youth movement, German public radio NDR reported Sunday.
Spokesman for the SOS Children’s Villages charity, Roger Damm, told NDR the CDs could have been hacked by a far-right group. Both the German branch of the charity and the production company that made the CD have lodged a complaint in Munich for incitement to hatred, Damm said. Households had been informed of the incident, Damm said. Hitler Youth was a paramilitary Nazi youth group aimed at training up members to serve the Third Reich.

Death defying ‘stunt’ lands Saudi man in police custody

DUBAI: A shocking video has been released on social media of a man who jumps from the roof of a car into the path of an articulated lorry in what appears to be a death defying stunt.
Without any consideration for the safety for himself or other motorists, the man can be seen dancing on the car which is parked on the side of the road, in the background the vast lorry can be seen approaching.
At the last moment the man is seen jumping onto the floor causing the lorry to swerve violently to avoid hitting him.
The man has now been arrested by the General Directorate of Traffic – according to UAE daily Gulf News – on charges of endangering the lives of other road users.
