Another ship sinks

During the night, around 400 migrants are believed to have drowned trying to reach Europe after their ship capsized. As it gets warmer, more migrants attempt to make the journey.

Survivors of a capsized migrant boat off Libya have told the aid group Save the Children that around 400 people are believed to have drowned. Even before the survivors were interviewed, Italy’s coast guard said it assumed that there were many dead given the size of the ship and that nine bodies had been found.

If anyone can cook and wants to do something worthwhile this summer, they might think of heading down to help out.

The leaning tower of pizza

Well, the most basic aim of terrorism is to terrorize, so it’s refreshing (and I actually think it’s really important) to see people laughing at it.

Italians have responded with ridicule after an ISIS supporter referred to the famous Leaning Tower of Pisa landmark as the “learning tower of pizza”.

The ISIS supporting Twitter account belonging to someone identifying as Abu Abdullah Aritani tweeted: “#We_Are_Coming_O_Rome, we will conquer & establish the justice of #shariah. We will use your leaning tower of pizza to throw off homosexual”.
