Friday Five News 12/2/16
Well it’s been a busy few weeks so my news item postings have been sorely neglected. I thought I might try for some happier stories this week so here goes:
The INTERNATIONAL story I picked out is this one on moves to start UN siege aid in Syria and efforts to try and get a truce in place to enable talks between the conflicting parties.
I can’t claim to have full understanding of why and how the situation in Syria has developed but any plans to alleviate the suffering of the innocent people caught up in the hostilities must be a good thing.
This LOCAL news item is not particularly happy but it does report on the return to the UK of a man suspected of killing his wife and two children in December last year. The remains of their bodies were not discovered until January by which time the suspect had flown to Ghana. Hopefully now there can be a thorough investigation and a trial and the family will get answers to many outstanding questions.
Not really a story for ENTERTAINMENT this week but a preview of a new drama series starting next week – The Night Manager. It stars Olivia Coleman, Hugh Laurie, and is based on a Le Carre book. What’s not to like? (I haven’t read the book though and I do prefer to do that first, before watching adaptations.)
