- Action movies have taught us that to catch a mafia boss law enforcement needs to come up with a complex operation involving hundreds of officers from several countries and the one you like the most will likely die in the end (darn it, why?). Apparently, in reality things are much easier. Sicilian police didn’t lift a finger to arrest one of Italy’s 100 most-wanted criminals. Alright, they did, but only to click on Google Street View, which helped them to establish the whereabouts of Gioacchino Gammino. Law enforcement suspected the mobster was in Spain, but were unable to find him. Thanks to the computer programme, which allows users to look at interactive panoramas of streets around the world, officers found a photograph of him chatting outside a fruit shop. Investigators recognised him by a scar on the left side of his chin. When police officers came to arrest him the gangster was stunned. “How did you find me? I haven’t phoned my family for 10 years”, he said.
- Keeping exotic animals like lions, tigers or cheetahs as pets is legal in several countries in the Middle East and South Asia. In a bizarre incident, a woman carrying an escaped pet lion in her arms on the streets of Kuwait has taken the Internet by storm. The lion reportedly sparked panic in Kuwait City after escaping from its enclosure and entering a residential area. In a video that has gone viral, a woman is seen holding tight to the struggling lion trying to break free as it growls and resists aggressively, trying to escape from her grip. After walking a few metres, the woman releases the lion on the ground near her.
- Police in Delhi on Thursday arrested the alleged main conspirator and creator of the app “Bulli Bai”, Neeraj Bishnoi, in his hometown in the Indian state of Assam for putting hundreds of Muslim women up for an online “auction”. Law enforcement said the 20-year-old Bishnoi was also the main Twitter account holder of the app which has been suspended by the micro-blogging site. Bishnoi is reportedly a second-year engineering student at an institute based in the city of Bhopal in the Indian state of Madhya Pradesh.
- Despite Hillary Clinton’s help and support from the Democratic Party’s most influential women, Vice President Kamala Harris looks weaker by the day, Wall Street analyst Charles Ortel says, suggesting that Harris might have to encourage a more charismatic Democrat to take her place. According to The New York Times, “the two speak every few months on the phone”, while in November, Hillary Clinton visited VP Harris in her West Wing office. Harris has found herself under growing criticism over her vice presidential performance. The veep’s approval rating fell to a miserable 28 percent in November. She has also faced an exodus of her staff members, who cited a toxic workplace atmosphere earlier this year.
- Popular Indian hairstylist Jawed Habib has sparked controversy after a shocking video of him spitting on a woman’s hair while giving a haircut went viral on social media. The incident recently took place in the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh’s Muzaffarnagar district where several hairstylists and parlour owners came for a training seminar by Habib. In the video, Habib can be seen saying to the audience that “if you don’t have water for the haircut, you can use your spit as well” before actually spitting on a woman’s head. He then goes on to say that his spit is “very effective”.
- Lufthansa Group confirmed that 18,000 flights had been flown empty, including 3,000 carried out by Brussels Airlines, Belgium’s biggest and flagship air carrier, The Bulletin reports, citing local media. Under the ‘use it or lose it’ regulations, European airlines are normally forced to operate flights in at least 80% of their scheduled take-off and landing slots in order not to lose the right to use them.
- Serbian leader Aleksandar Vucic has accused Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison of complicity in a ‘witch hunt’ against Novak Djokovic, as the tennis world number one faces deportation in a row over a medical exemption. Djokovic, 34, is at an immigration center in Melbourne awaiting his fate after his visa was canceled upon arrival into Australia on Wednesday. The Serbian star upon his arrival, the 20-time Grand Slam winner learned that his exemption was not sufficient for the federal authorities to allow him to enter the country. Only fully vaccinated players are allowed at the tournament unless granted the type of exemption which Djokovic had received, which followed verification from two separate medical panels in Australia.
- Ghislaine Maxwell’s lawyers have been allowed to apply for a retrial, after reports emerged that two jurors may have swayed others to convict her for sex trafficking by revealing their own childhood sexual abuse histories. On Wednesday, New York judge Alison Nathan gave the defense until January 19 to submit a legal motion to vacate the conviction.
- The first plane with Russian peacekeepers on board took off for Kazakhstan early on Thursday, as the Central Asian country remains gripped by violent protests provoked by a sharp hike in fuel prices after the New Year. Footage of the Russian paratroopers embarking on an Ilyushin Il-76 transport plane at Chkalovsky airfield outside Moscow was posted online by the Defense Ministry’s Zvezda television channel.
- Following a law that came into force on January 1, police dogs in Germany were put on an enforced break. The law, introduced by former agriculture minister Julia Klockner, bans the use of punitive stimuli to train or control dogs. The police said that some 49 dogs would be suspended from duty until a solution is found. The animals were part of a 130-strong canine contingent which is used for a broad array of operations, including drug busts, arrests, and locating missing persons. The area of contention is around dog handlers’ use of so-called “pulling collars,” which are used to control the aggression of police canines during operations.
- On Tuesday, Ecuador’s government slammed the country’s ‘MasterChef’ show after a recent episode featured ingredients including tollo (a small shark), an alligator, a type of wild deer, and a capybara – a massive rodent which can weigh as much as 80 kilograms (175 lbs). In a statement, Ecuador’s environment ministry said it “rejects the promotion and dissemination of graphic or audiovisual content that encourages the purchase and consumption of wild species or their constituent elements.” The ministry also reminded citizens that punishments range up to three years in jail for crimes against flora and fauna.

Hunga Tonga-Hunga Ha’apai Volcano (Tonga)
New cone has formed. A new satellite image of the volcano from 2 January was captured with significant morphological changes that have formed during the latest phreatomagmatic activity.
From available satellite images, it seems to confirm a new cone compared to the most previous imagery from 3 December. The new cone has likely formed by the accumulation of tephra around the vent and is located to the northeast from the previous 2014-2015 cone, already eroded by currents and waves.
