Photos of Lebanese professor carrying student’s baby during lecture melts hearts

CAIRO: A viral photo of a Lebanese university professor carrying the baby child of one of his female students has recently melted hearts around the country.
Lebanese media reports have brought the kind gesture of Professor Hassan Chamas under the spotlight, after he carried the baby of one of his students during a lecture.
The student happens to be a mother who is pursuing a masters degree and had to bring her child to class.
When the baby began crying, the 28-year-old lecturer tried to clam him down by carrying him so that the students could concentrate. Soon, the baby fell asleep serenely on the professor’s shoulder.
Chamas reportedly took to Facebook to comment on the incident, which he described as “one of his most beautiful lectures.”
“I am sure the baby absorbed a lot of the lesson, being very close to the professor,” he said jokingly.
The priceless moment garnered wide praise by social media users in Lebanon, who commended on the professor’s kindness toward his student.

Chechen strongman makes Egypt’s Salah honorary citizen

  • After his team crashed out of the World Cup, Egypt’s star player Mohamed Salah has won a consolation prize in the form of honorary citizenship of Chechnya
  • Kadyrov, supported by Russia’s President Vladimir Putin, rules Chechnya with an iron fist, drawing constant condemnation from human rights groups

MOSCOW: After his team crashed out of the World Cup, Egypt’s star player Mohamed Salah has won a consolation prize in the form of honorary citizenship of Chechnya.
Chechen strongman Ramzan Kadyrov wrote on Telegram that he had presented the Liverpool star with the honorary title while hosting a dinner for the Egypt team, whose World Cup training base is in the Chechen capital Grozny.
“Mohamed Salah is an honorary citizen of Chechnya! That’s right!” Kadyrov wrote late Friday.
“Tonight I signed a decree to grant the high honor to the great footballer who plays for Egypt and Liverpool.”
Kadyrov, supported by Russia’s President Vladimir Putin, rules Chechnya with an iron fist, drawing constant condemnation from human rights groups.
He is known as an ardent football fan and in 2013 took to the public address system during a match involving Chechen team Akhmat (formerly Terek) to publicly insult the referee.
Salah has been photographed smiling and clasping hands with Kadyrov during the tournament.
Egypt crashed out of the World Cup after losing to Russia 3-1 on Tuesday, with Salah returning to action for the first time in three weeks following a shoulder injury but unable to save his team. The Egyptians play their final match against Saudi Arabia on Monday.
Kadyrov said that at “a gala dinner that I gave for the Egypt team I presented Mohamed Salah with a copy of my decree and a lapel badge. This is a well-deserved honor!“
The Chechen leader has previously presented French actor Gerard Depardieu with the same honorary title.
He also said that he was confident that Akhmat would play a friendly with the Egyptian national team in Grozny at some future date.
Kadyrov said Salah had praised the “wonderfully warm and good welcome” the team received in Grozny.
