Hillary Clinton takes a slip – twice – as she walks down stairs during India visit

CAIRO: Hillary Clinton has once again taken a topple, this time while descending stairs during a visit to India this week, just five months after she broke a toe in London.

The former presidential candidate tumbled not once, but twice as walked down stairs during her visit to the ancient fort of Jahaz Mahal in India’s central Mandu city, according to the Daily Mail.

Clinton slipped on the first few steps, but was saved from falling by a man who was able to hold her up by her left arm.

But as another man came to her aid, she tripped again, nearly falling to the floor as her leg extended out in front of her.

Refusing to be beaten Clinton then kicked off her sandals and continued barefoot without issue.

Clinton is in India to promote her book on her loss in the 2016 presidential elections.

Last year, the former US First Lady broke her toe while walking down a set of stairs at a London hotel.

French couple tie knot in yellow-vest themed wedding

  • The couple met a few weeks ago at a roadblock protest
  • They held the wedding at another roadblock at a nearby tolling station

DUBAI: Out of the madness of the Yellow Vests protests raging across Paris has sprung hope in the form of newlywed bliss.

After having met less than a month ago during a yellow vest roadblock in the Occitanie commune of Tarbes, two strangers, known only as “Chouchoune” and “Coco bel œil”, decided to tie the knot in a bizarre yellow-vest themed wedding ceremony, local media reported.

On Saturday, as violent protests broke out across the country, the couple held an outdoor wedding ceremony during a roadblock at a tolling station in nearby Séméac. The bride wore a tailor-made neon-yellow dress made from the reflective vests, and donned a crown of yellow flowers, while the groom wore a full suit of the reflective neon material.

Pictures of the wedding were posted to Twitter.

200 yellow-vest-clad guests attended the ceremony as the head of Tarbes’s gilets jaunes group presided over the ceremony. She pronounced the couple married whilst wearing a tricolor wig in the colors of the French flag, French daily La Depeche du Midi reported.

Given the roadblocks they’re currently taking part in, the couple’s honeymoon consisted of a “romantic” motorcycle tour around a nearby roundabout.
