With baby announcement, Kylie Jenner is new Instagram queen

LOS ANGELES: Kylie Jenner is the new queen of Instagram.
The reality star’s baby-name announcement became the most popular post on the social media site on Wednesday, surpassing Beyonce’s pregnancy announcement of 2017.
Jenner shared a photo on Tuesday of her new daughter’s tiny hand captioned with the baby’s name, Stormi Webster.
The post had collected 13.7 million “likes” by Wednesday afternoon, compared with 11.2 million for Beyonce’s pregnancy photo.
Born on Feb. 1, Stormi is the first child for Jenner and her boyfriend, rapper Travis Scott.
The 20-year-old Jenner is the youngest sibling in the Kardashian-Jenner clan.
She kept largely out of public view during her pregnancy.
In a social media post earlier this week, she said pregnancy was “the most beautiful, empowering and life changing experience” and that she will “miss it.”

Two get life sentence in S.Africa ‘cannibalism case’

  • Police refused to believe his claims until he took them to a house where more body parts were found
JOHANNESBURG: Two South African men accused of cannibalism were given life sentences for murder on Wednesday, with the judge saying they were guilty of “the most heinous crime,” local media reported.
Sitting at the Pietermaritzburg High Court, judge Peter Olsen sentenced Nino Mbatha, 33, and Lungisani Magubane, 32, to life in prison for the killing of Zanele Hlatshwayo last year, the Witness newspaper said.
Mbatha, a traditional healer, was arrested after handing himself in at a police station in Estcourt, a town in KwaZulu-Natal province.
He was carrying a bag containing a human leg and a hand, telling officers he was “tired of eating human flesh.”
Police refused to believe his claims until he took them to a house where more body parts were found.
A third man was acquitted on Wednesday. Seven people were initially arrested.
At earlier hearings in Estcourt, angry residents had gathered outside the courthouse to protest against the grisly murder.
South Africa has no direct law against cannibalism, but mutilating a corpse and being in possession of human tissue are criminal offenses.
