The letter, which was posted online, introduced the speaker as a New York City native who resided in Connecticut and had founded an organisation devoted to “empowerment of Muslim women”. In a statement to NBC, Bristol Public Schools superintendent Susan Kalt Moreau said despite the cancellation “there was an outpouring of support for bringing a speaker in to support our curriculum which includes religions of the world”.

Injured defector's parasites and diet hint at hard life in N.Korea

Injured defector's parasites and diet hint at hard life in N.KoreaParasitic worms found in a North Korean soldier, critically injured during a desperate defection, highlight nutrition and hygiene problems that experts say have plagued the isolated country for decades. At a briefing on Wednesday, lead surgeon Lee Cook-jong displayed photos showing dozens of flesh-coloured parasites - including one 27 cm (10.6 in) long - removed from the wounded soldier's digestive tract during a series of surgeries to save his life. The parasites, along with kernels of corn in his stomach, may confirm what many experts and previous defectors have described about the food and hygiene situation for many North Koreans.

Thousands of Zimbabweans demand Mugabe stands down at Harare protest

Thousands of Zimbabweans demand Mugabe stands down at Harare protest Euphoric crowds of several thousand people have gathered in Zimbabwe's capital to demand the departure of President Robert Mugabe after nearly four decades in power. In a colorful gathering that even days ago would have drawn an immediate police crackdown, Zimbabweans giddy with joy raced through intersections, raising their arms in triumph. Young men shouted, laughed and embraced. Some had posters with an image of the military commander who swept in earlier this week and put Mugabe under house arrest, with the slogan: "Go, go, our general!!!" Marchers handed flags to soldiers, who accepted and waved. "It's like Christmas," said one marcher, Fred Mubay, who said Zimbabweans have been suffering for a long time. The 93-year-old Mugabe, the world's oldest head of state, is said to be asking for more time amid negotiations with regional leaders that seek his exit with a veneer of dignity.

Even as concerns remained about who next would be in charge and what freedoms might be available if the military lingered in power - or if Mugabe's longtime but recently fired deputy led a new government - people reveled in the rare chance to speak out. The party has started in Harare. Choppers overhead, 1000s here. More pouring in. #zimbabwepic.twitter.com/N3TqMUgxl0— Joe Parkinson (@JoeWSJ) November 18, 2017 The demonstrators, in the event approved by the military, hope a big turnout will speed up the official end of Mugabe's rule, which is widely blamed for the collapse of an economy that was once one of Africa's wealthiest. Veterans of the long liberation war against white minority rule, once close allies of Mugabe, took part, along with opposition activists who have faced police crackdowns by the Mugabe government. At an intersection, a vendor held up a newspaper with the headline: "Mugabe cornered." One driver was so jubilant that he got out of his moving car and danced in front of it for a couple of minutes as the empty vehicle coasted slowly down a street lined with cheering crowds. Protesters gather calling for Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe  Credit:  PHILIMON BULAWAYO Some white Zimbabweans joined the crowd at Harare's Freedom Square, also known as Robert Mugabe Square. Some whites and blacks hugged each other. Soldiers began approaching the demonstrators and urging them to head to the Zimbabwe Grounds, where speeches were set to be delivered. The Zimbabwe Grounds were chosen for the symbolism. The location is where Zimbabweans gathered to cheer Mugabe's return from exile in 1980 after the liberation war from white minority rule. Now the crowds wish to meet there and urge Mugabe's departure. Having a little sob watching the march in #Harare from afar. @bevseb took this amazing video. People fist-pumping and thanking the soldiers for forcing #Mugabe to resign. Jubilation on ground.
