Ethiopian Pilot 

An airplane was hijacked by an Ethiopian man called Hailemedehin Abera Tagegn. Who is the co-pilot; he locks the pilot of the plane in the bathroom. Then he starts his mission of taking control of the plane. The 202 passengers never knew what was going on with the plane but they were very scared when the plane started diving in the sky.  Hailemedehin had been working in the company for 5 years and had no criminal record until now. The main reason he did that was because he said he wasn’t safe in his country and he needed asylum. Because Switzerland has no contact with Ethiopia, he decided to land in there and ask asylum. Switzerland is researching and hasn’t come up yet with an answer.

This article gives me creeps. I can’t imagine what I could have done in that situation. I am so relieved that he didn’t hurt any of the passengers aboard. His main reason for stealing the control of the plane is still silly to me, why has his country done to him. I would agree if they put him in jail for taking the plane and land it without permission. A thing that amazes me is that how the Airline couldn’t control this! Hope you liked my opinion!

Al-Shabab attacks Somali presidential palace

This group knows because it has a link to Al-Qaeda. They have destroyed the heavy-fortified Somalia presidential palace. It blasted through the gate it was a car bomb. Palace guards started a fierce gun battle that leave 14 people dead. The government believes Al-Shabab did this to gain more media attention, and to show them that they are going to win. They have been attacking the capital with a lot of suicide bombs. They brought cars armed, one was the bomb and the others were armed to fire. UN is hoping Somalia can rise.

Somalia really needs helps! The violence there is horrible. People live in fear, and I think they had enough. Countries around them should do something to help them. It’s sad when a person died when this attacks happens. Maybe he/she was just passing by to meet someone and got killed. Poor people they need a change! I will pray for Somalia’s recovery hope you do too. 🙂
