FLORIDA: Police has arrested 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz who is believed to have entered a high school here yesterday (14th of Feb.) armed with an AR-15 rifle and  a number of magazines and killed 17 children and adults.

Cruz, who was expelled for disciplinary reasons from the school (and was receiving treatment for mental health issues) was arrested at the scene of crime and is presently being questioned.

According to details after the assault twelve people were found dead inside the school, two were killed outside the building, one in the street while two later succumbed to injuries during treatment at a medical facility.

Out of fifteen injured hospitalized five are in a life-threatening condition.

Cynics go haywire wondering while buying a gun is so easy in USA how could the Government control such incidents that occur incessantly.

While Trump took to the twitter to condole to the families of the victims, many retweeted warning that such shooting would continue until assault rifles were outlawed and background checks were carried out before selling weapons.

LAHORE: The Lahorites would receive electronic challans at their addresses given at the time of registration of vehicles over violation of traffic rules from Monday (24th September).
A spokesman for Punjab Safe Cities Authority (PSCA) said that a test run had already been conducted regarding electronic ticketing to ensure optimum efficiency after its launch.
The e-ticketing contains real-time violation graphics, type, and corresponding penalty numerics initially to be paid to the branches of Bank of Punjab, whereas similar arrangements were underway with National Bank of Pakistan along with various other deposit facilities, the spokesman said.
He said that these operations would be executed from the PSCA electronic ticketing center, in coordination with the City Traffic Police (CTP) and in compliance with the Motor Vehicles Ordinance and the rules, Section 116-A. The back side of E-tickets depicted all the violations, fines, and relevant instructions, he added.
The fine would have to be paid in 10 days; otherwise, the amount would double, the spokesman said and added that frequent violations or non-payment of fines would lead to impounding of vehicles. The PSCA urged people to observe traffic rules and take extra caution to avoid getting ticketed. More information can be obtained by calling at universal emergency helpline 15, the spokesman added.

COAS confirms death sentence to 15 hardcore terrorists

MEXICO: The Sultan of the southern Malaysian state of Johor has commuted the death sentences of three Mexican brothers who were set to be hanged for drug trafficking crimes, Mexico said.
After years of lobbying by Mexican diplomats, Sultan Ibrahim Sultan Iskandar of Johor – one of Malaysia’s most powerful and wealthiest state rulers – commuted the men’s death sentences to life in prison, Mexico’s foreign ministry said Thursday.
“This was the result of a long process and intense dialogue with Malaysian federal authorities,” it said in a statement.
The brothers — Simon, Luis Alfonso, and Jose Regino Gonzalez Villarreal – were arrested in a raid on a methamphetamine lab in Johor in March 2008.
The brothers, who hail from the Mexican state of Sinaloa — home to jailed drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman’s Sinaloa cartel — insisted they were innocent, saying they had been hired to clean the building and were unaware what was being made inside.
But a Malaysian court sentenced them to hang to death in May 2012. The conviction was upheld on appeal the following year.
Mexico, which does not use capital punishment, neither accepted nor rejected the court’s guilty verdict, but pushed for the death sentence to be commuted.

Tuxtla Gutiérrez, Mexico: Gunmen shot and killed a Mexican journalist as he left his home in the southern state of Chiapas, his newspaper said Saturday, at least the ninth reporter murdered in the country this year.
Mario Gomez, a reporter with El Heraldo de Chiapas, is the latest victim in a wave of violence against the press in Mexico, the second-deadliest country in the world for journalists after war-torn Syria, according to the watchdog group Reporters Without Borders.
“He had recently filed a complaint because he was receiving threats,” a colleague at the paper told AFP on condition of anonymity.
The newspaper said Gomez, a general news correspondent in the town of Yajalon, was leaving for work when two unidentified men arrived and “murdered him in cold blood” with a series of shots to the abdomen.
Gomez, 35, was taken to the hospital but died of his wounds, it said.
“We call for an exhaustive investigation to find those responsible for this crime,” his colleagues wrote in an editorial published on the newspaper’s website.
The state prosecutor’s office said in a statement it would “follow all lines of investigation to shed light on this reprehensible crime and bring those responsible to justice.”
