  • Brazilian gang hacks and leaks nude photos of female police officer in revenge

    According to Media Takeout website, one of the most notorious gangs in Brazil, has lived up to its billing by engaging in a new sort of revenge warfare by leaking the nude photos of a senior female police officer as a way of avenging the arrest of some of their members by the police.

    The boss was arrested by a police posse which included the female officer whose name is given as Julia. Julia has been named as a top police officer of Brazilian Military Police of Rio de Janeiro. In revenge the gang hacked into Julia’s private social media account and stumbled on very personal and intimate selfies of the female cop.

    The gang, upset at the arrest of its members including their leader who was arrested by police, they promptly released the naked photos.

  • Kenyan police arrest 40 Ethiopia’s Oromos for illegal assembly

    NAIROBI, Oct. 3 (Xinhua) — Kenyan police have arrested 40 members of the Oromo, Ethiopia’s largest ethnic group, for holding an illegal meeting in the capital Nairobi.

    Nairobi County Police Commander Japheth Koome said the Oromos were arrested on Sunday evening as they were planning to protest against the Ethiopian government.

    “The 40 Oromos had assembled at the City Park in Nairobi without notifying the police. We are interrogating them,” Koome said Monday, adding that they would be charged in court for illegal assembly.

    The police said some of those arrested were in the country illegally and could be deported by court after the scrutiny of their documents.

    The arrest came hours after a celebration in Ethiopia turned into a stampede that reportedly left at least 50 people dead as police dispersed a crowd at an annual cultural festival of the Oromo people.

    It took place in one of Ethiopia’s most sensitive regions, Oromia, which has seen several months of protests by Oromos demanding wider freedoms. The protests were initially sparked by a land row and have been turning more broadly against the government.
