Lightning strike kills Somalia newlyweds

A lightning strike has killed a newlywed couple near the central Somali town of Abudwaq in the country’s Galguduud region, the local media reported.

“The two were at home when the incident occurred. No one else was living with them, there was heavy rain accompanied by thunderstorms, lightning struck them,” a relative told local news website Halbeeg.

Heavy rain began to fall in the first week of March, with southern and central regions of Somalia flooding in April. The Juba and Shebelle region in Somalia was only hit by moderate rain, according to the Somalia Water and Land Information Management (SWALIM) unit.

According to Relief Web, rain this year has negatively impacted the humanitarian condition in Somalia, causing overcrowding in temporary shelters housing internally displaced persons. The Shebelle River is expected to rise from the rain, with some 200,000 Somalis at risk of flooding in Belet Weyne town.

Despite an uptick of rain fall Somali farmers have reportedly started working on their crops early, in a bid to take advantage of the opportunity for cultivation.

In February, some 38 Somalis died from severe drought conditions in southern Somalia.

  3. Los Blancos, with captain Sergio Ramos suspended after deliberately collecting a yellow card in the first leg, had been looking to build on a slender 2-1 lead from that game in Amsterdam and stay on course for a potential fourth straight European triumph.

    However, after Raphael Varane’s header rattled the crossbar, Ajax raced into an early lead through Hakim Ziyech before Dusan Tadic set up David Neres for a second in the 18th minute.
    Real Madrid were forced into two changes when Lucas Vazquez and Vinicius Junior went off injured, with substitute Gareth Bale hitting the post just before half-time.

    Ajax looked to have put the tie to bed when Tadic swept in a brilliant third goal just after the hour – which was eventually given following an extensive Video Assistant Referee review to check if the ball had gone out of play in the build-up.
