    Egyptian Woman Claims to be Slain Saudi Journalist Jamal Khasoggi's Secret Wife

    On October 2nd, as most people in the world probably know by now, Jamal Khashoggi, a prominent US-based Saudi journalist known for his criticism of the Kingdom, was killed within moments of leaving his fiancé and stepping in the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul, causing international uproar and calls for sanctions against Saudi Arabia, whose Prince Mohamed bin Salman is suspected to have ordered to killing. Turkey launched an investigation into the shocking incident, and Saudi Arabia trembled to create a consistent version of the events that took place at the consulate, though they eventually admitted Khashoggi's murder was premeditated and called it a 'rogue operation' that has nothing to do with Prince Mohamed bin Salman, which the CIA has recently concluded must have orchestrated the entire operation or at the very least been aware of it.

    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
