  • Pope canonises murdered Salvadoran Archbishop and Pope who enshrined Church opposition to contraception

    Golocal247.com news

    Pope Francis has canonised Pope Paul VI and Salvadoran archbishop Oscar Romero, two of the most contested figures of the Catholic Church in the 20th century, who both had a powerful influence over his papacy.   In a ceremony on Sunday that drew more than 70,000 people to St Peter’s Square, Francis also presided over the canonisation of five other, including the German founder of a religious congregation, the Spanish founder of another order, two Italian priests and a teen-ager.   “All these saints, in different contexts, put today’s word into practice in their lives, without lukewarmness, without calculation, with the passion to risk everything and to leave it all behind,” Pope Francis said in his homily.   A Latin American icon, Archbishop Romero vocally opposed military oppression of El Salvador's right-wing government and was gunned down during Mass in a hospital chapel in March 1980.  He was remembered by Francis in his homily as a man who “left the security of the world, even his own safety, in order to give his life according to the Gospel, close to the poor and to his people, with a heart drawn to Jesus and his brothers and sisters.” Romero was shot dead by gunmen linked to right-wing death squads, a day after telling an army made up largely of peasants that they were killing their own people.  Paul VI guided the Church trough one of its most turbulent modern periods and was the first Pope who travelled abroad, starting a new tradition for his successors.  Faced with the issue of whether to change the Church’s longstanding opposition to artificial birth control, Paul VI issued his landmark encyclical Humanae Vitae in 1968, delivering a strong “no” to change and reaffirming the Church’s position on contraception.

  • The moment a Belgian mechanic accidentally destroys an F-16 fighter jet with cannon

    Golocal247.com news

    ABelgian mechanic destroyed a multi-million pound fighter jet after he accidentally fired a Vulcan cannon while carrying out repairs at an air force base. The £15m plane quickly caught fired and exploded, according to Belgian broadcaster RTL.  The mechanic was working with a colleague on two F-16s in a hangar near the control tower.  It is understood that the third jet, which they inadvertently destroyed after firing the cannon, was just out of their line of sight.  Both mechanics were injured during the incident, which occurred on Thursday at the Florennes air base, 60 miles south of Brussels.

"We may be thinking about human fault or technical failure, but in any case we have not yet been warned of an intentional act," he said. The smoke from the incident could be seen from afar Around 30 firefighters were called to the scene along with ambulances and other emergency workers. Colonel Didier Polome, the base commander, said he was relieved that only two people were injured when the plane exploded. A maintenance worker accidentally fired a 20mm Vulcan cannon from an F-16 jet he was working on at Belgium’s Florennes Air Force Base earlier this week, destroying another F-16 while damaging another aircraft nearby, according to Scramble Magazine  “You can’t help thinking of what a disaster this could have been," he said. A Belgian Air Force spokesman said: "On October 11, 2018, at approximately 2:10 pm, a fire broke out during maintenance work on an F-16 on the Florennes Base. The plane burned. A second aircraft suffered collateral damage.'

  • British cyclist shot dead by hunter in French Alps

    Golocal247.com news

    A British mountain biker has been shot dead in the French Alps after he was mistaken for an animal by a local hunter. Marc Sutton, 34, originally from south Wales, died on Saturday evening after being struck by a single bullet while cycling in thick woods near the ski resort of Les Gets. The 22-year-old gunman, who has a firearms licence, was with a group of around 20 other hunters when the tragedy occurred. He had to be admitted to hospital after suffering from deep shock following the incident. Mr Sutton, a chef, had lived in the Alps for a number of years and owned and ran a restaurant with his girlfriend near the village of Morzine. Marc Sutton was a keen and experienced mountain biker  Credit: Facebook Amie Henderson, 38, a friend and neighbour of the of the couple told the Telegraph: “This is a very tight-knit expat community and we are all deeply shocked. There is anger too because every year there are hunting accidents.” Ms Henderson, who runs a local magazine for holidaymakers called Morzine Source, added: “Marc had a lot of friends in the area. We’ll all miss him.” Another local wrote on Facebook:  "This is absolutely devastating. Everyone in our community will be affected by last night’s accident. So very sad for Marc and everyone with him." Les Gets - locator map A source involved with the police investigation said: "He died instantly after being hit with a single bullet. The accident happened on Saturday evening in thick woods. The shooter went into deep shock when he realised what he had done." The source added: "He was riding a mountain bike on a popular and well used track, but it was difficult to get to and would not have been busy as darkness approached. The hunter may have mistaken him for an animal.” Marc Sutton with his partner Jo Watts Credit: Facebook But local prosecutor for the Thonon-Les-Bains region said: "Couldn't be confused with game, as he had a coloured helmet and a coloured mountain bike", suggesting the weapon might have gone off accidentally. It is understood local police are treating the matter as aggravated manslaughter for which the gunman could be prosecuted and jailed. “He was riding a mountain bike on a popular and well used track, but it was difficult to get to and would not have been busy as darkness approached. The hunter may have mistaken him for an animal.” Marc Sutton was shot dead on Saturday evening The Foreign Office said it was in contact with the local authorities and was ready to provide assistance to the man's family. It is the latest in a series of hunting accidents in which people have been killed or severely wounded. Last year a 59-year-old hiker was shot dead by a hunter in the Drôme and a 13-year-old boy died when he was accidentally shot by his grandfather. In 2017 a woman who had been sitting in her garden was killed after a stray hunter's bullet passeds through her garden hedge. In 2016, there were 18 fatal hunting accidents reported in France.
