‘Trump’ and ‘Kim’ thrown out of Winter Olympics Opening Ceremony

PYEONGCHANG: People dressed up as US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un caused a commotion when they appeared in the stands at the Olympic Games Opening Ceremony on Friday before swiftly being shown out by security staff.
“We’re getting along great,” said the Kim lookalike, who declined to give his name.
“We wanted to surprise everyone and bring world peace and then we’re being escorted out by security guards, which I think is really unfair,” he added. “Doesn’t everyone want peace?“
The ceremony was marked by a show of unity between North and South Korea.
Athletes from both countries entered the arena under a flag depicting a unified Korea as American Vice President Mike Pence and Kim’s sister, Kim Yo Jong, watched on from a VIP box.
“Is my sister getting the same treatment?,” the Kim lookalike said as he was escorted out of the stadium.

Bad call: Passenger kicked off IndiGo flight for trying to charge phone in cockpit

MUMBAI: A passenger was kicked off an Indian flight after he tried to access the cockpit to charge his phone, the airline said Wednesday.
The incident took place as an IndiGo flight was preparing to take off from Mumbai for Kolkata on Monday.
“While an IndiGo aircraft being on the ground an unruly passenger tried to enter the cockpit stating that his mobile needs to be charged,” IndiGo said in a statement.
“Following standard operating procedures, the captain ... initiated the offloading of the passenger on grounds of security violation,” the airline added.
An airport official told the Press Trust of India news agency that the man, said to be in his mid-thirties, was drunk.
Police questioned and then released him without charge, the official added.
It was the second bizarre incident involving an Indian domestic flight this week after a passenger tried to open an exit door in mid-air, apparently mistaking it for the toilet.
The man was traveling with GoAir from New Delhi to Patna on Saturday when he attempted to open the aircraft’s rear exit, the carrier said.
A co-passenger raised the alarm and the man was apprehended by the crew.
He was handed to the authorities for questioning on arrival and later released.
Indian media reports said he was a first-time flier.
India’s airline sector has seen a six-fold increase in passenger numbers over the past decade as citizens take advantage of better connectivity and cheap flights, with many taking to the skies for the first time.
