    Salman Khan injured; returns home

    Salman Khan came in for trouble recently during the shooting of the film Bharat. We are not talking about the political controversy that ensued over the use of the Pakistan flag during the shoot of the film in Ludhiana, but also of a physical injury caused to the actor. Well, Salman did not death-defying stunts, but the actor was normally working out in the gymnasium at the shoot when he hurt himself pretty badly. “It is not a very serious injury, but he needs a lot of rest and that was one reason why Salman came back to Mumbai to also get checked up to assuage himself and people around him that nothing was too serious.  Salman was in a lot of pain and could not complete the shooting schedule

The US assessment directly contradicts the conclusions of a Saudi prosecutor one day prior, which exonerated the prince of involvement in the brutal murder. But The Washington Post, which broke the story, said the CIA found that 15 Saudi agents flew on government aircraft to Istanbul and assassinated Khashoggi in the Saudi consulate.

    Airplane so big it needs special hangar doors

    (CNN) - When it comes to accommodating the world's largest passenger plane, the team at Munich Airport understands there's just a little more to love. So when its hangar doors couldn't close around the tail-fin of the 73-meter-long Airbus A380, leaving maintenance workers shivering as the German winter drew in, they didn't panic. They just got design firm Butzbach to build a set of custom-made doors with an A380-sized hole in the middle. The new rail-mounted gates are 22 meters tall and 11 meters wide and took four weeks to build. The gap is designed to snugly fit the tail of the A380, leaving no chilly drafts. The airport revealed the new addition in a Facebook post on November 9, captioned
