2018-05-01 06:10
Yahya Jaafar, the groom of a wedding that was struck by a Saudi-led coalition airstrike, killing at least 20 people in the city of Hajjah on 22 April, sifted through the rubble at the site of the attack, on Monday, recollecting the incident. «Many people died, many were wounded, some lost their hands, some lost their legs,» stated the would-be groom, adding that «This happened for no reason, and there was no gathering of the Houthis, this was indiscriminate bombing.» «After the bombing, we say to Saudi Arabia, what is the reason for this indiscriminate bombardment? what is the reason? We will get revenge for each one of them [victims],» continued Jaafar. Yahya's uncle Hamza Yahya Ali, described the aftermath of the horrific scene: «The majority were killed in the same place. Some of them were amputated. Some people's heads were cut off, some people's hands were cut off. Some people's bodies were split into two. Some [body parts] were mixed up together.» Wedding guest Majid Suwaid had to have his feet amputated from the injuries sustained from the Saudi-led coalition airstrike: «I lost my feet, my brother lost his feet. My other brother died because of the bombing. We tried to flee but we could not walk until ambulances came and took us.» Top health official in the Hajjah province Ayman Madhkoor said at least 20 people were killed and more than 50 injured, including many women and children, when the strike hit the wedding late on Sunday. It is thought the bride was also among the dead. Eyewitnesses said that ambulances were unable to reach the scene for fear of subsequent airstrikes. The Saudi-led bombing campaign continues in Yemen with US backing, with casualty figures exceeding 16,200 people since the beginning of the conflict in March 2015. A reported 40,000 have been injured and more than two million people have been displaced.

Italy: Festival of the Snake-catchers — CRIPES!
2018-05-01 20:26
Every May 1, Cocullo celebrates one of the world's strangest festivals. This hilltop settlement in the Abruzzo region honours its patron saint San Domenico de Sora — Saint Dominic — by draping his statue in snakes and parading it through the village. The festival in its current form dates back to the 14th century, when townsfolk paid homage to Saint Dominic, the 11th century founder of the Dominican order, who was said to have rid the area of venomous serpents. In the lead up to the festival, snake-catchers or «serapos» are tasked with capturing four types of local snakes. The patron saint's statue is then covered in snakes and taken on a procession. Visitors are invited to touch the snakes, which are thought to contain healing properties. Once the celebrations have ended, the cycle begins again, as reptiles return to the wild and «separos» try to catch them.
