‘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.

Dealer mistakenly parks truck loaded with cannabis outside police station in Egypt

CAIRO: A truck loaded with a ton of cannabis stashed inside cement bags was mistakenly parked outside a police station in Egypt, a newspaper reported on Sunday.
Police officers in El-Qantara, a northeastern Egyptian city located in the governorate of Ismailia, informed their headquarters of a truck loaded with 60 tons of sealed cement bags, left unattended outside their station.
According to Youm7, police examined the bags only to discover that there were two large rolls of ‘Bango’, modern Egyptian street-slang for cannabis, hidden inside 95 bags of cement.
The drug is the most commonly used drug in Egypt, as well as across the Middle East.
The newspaper said the loaded car was confiscated by police.
Preliminary investigations said the vehicle is owned by a 51-year-old housewife. It said it was not clear if the truck was stolen, as no theft was reported regarding the vehicle.
