Man ‘blows himself up’ at Ukraine university

KIEV: A 62-year-old man was killed and two wounded Thursday in the western Ukrainian city of Chernivtsi when a grenade he was carrying blew up at the local university, prosecutors said.
“An analysis will determine whether the detonation was accidental or intentional,” a spokesperson for prosecutors told AFP.
Local media reports said the man had set the grenade off on purpose at the university to commit suicide. Two people — a professor and a student — were injured but did not need to be hospitalized.
The Segodnya daily said the man previously had arguments with the university’s staff about rights to a plot of land.
But other reports said the man was a former border guard who had recently engaged in arguments with one of the university’s professors.

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.
