Eritreans make up the largest group of people applying for asylum in the UK.

Calais, France - Away from the forced conscriptions, enforced disappearances, torture and religious repression of their homeland, hundreds of Eritreans, mostly men, remain stuck in Calais' ever-shrinking "Jungle" refugee camp. French authorities have bulldozed their settlements in the camp's southern zone. Those who have made it across the English Channel face continual roadblocks from the UK Home Office in their requests for asylum.

EgyptAir Flight 181 plane hijacked by Egyptian Seif El Din Mustafa, lands in Cyprus but motive unclear

LARNACA, Cyprus - An Egyptian wearing a fake explosives belt who hijacked a domestic EgyptAir flight and forced it to land in Cyprus on Tuesday surrendered and was taken into custody after releasing all passengers and crew unharmed following an hours-long standoff.

Snake photographed in Ethiopia may be new species of venomous viper

While driving through Ethiopia’s Bale Mountains National Park in 2013, graduate student Evan Buechley of the University of Utah, and his colleagues, spotted a black-colored snake with pale-yellowish markings. The driver stopped the vehicle, and the team photographed the one-meter long snake. To date, these are the only known photographs of what scientists say could be a new species of venomous Bitis viper. Based on Buechley’s photographs, a team of scientists decided to take a closer look at the museum specimen of a similar-looking snake at London’s Natural History Museum. The snake had been collected in the 1960s, and was thought to be a differently patterned individual of the venomous Ethiopian viper Bitis parviocula. Re-examination of the specimen revealed that it was not the same as Bitis parviocula: there was differences in its color patterns, the structure of its skull and its head proportions and the number of scales.
