29 charged after police break up Mississauga Aribnb party

Twenty-nine people are facing charges after a house party in Mississauga at which more than 60 people may have been in attendance.

Peel police along with by-law officers were called to an Airbnb just after midnight Sunday. 

Police tell CityNews they would not be releasing the address as they did not want to penalize the homeowners. 

Deputy Police Chief Marc Andrews said 27 people were issued $880 fines for violating provincial rules aimed at reducing the spread of COVID-19. Two individuals identified as the hosts of the party were also given Part 3 Summons which carry with it a fine of $10,000.

UN says at least 110 killed in suspected Boko Haram attack in Nigeria where many victims were beheaded

The death toll in a suspected Boko Haram attack on farmers in northeastern Nigeria on Saturday has reached at least 110, a UN humanitarian coordinator in the country said, urging the perpetrators to be brought to justice.

β€œAt least 110 civilians were ruthlessly killed and many others wounded in this attack,” Edward Kallon, the UN’s humanitarian coordinator in Nigeria, said in a statement. 

The incident was the β€œmost violent direct attack against innocent civilians” in the country in 2020, Kallon pointed out. The perpetrators of this β€œheinous and senseless” act must be brought to justice, he added.

A group of armed men on motorcycles ambushed the farmers as they went into the rice fields to gather the harvest on Saturday. The bodies of 43 farmers have been recovered after the massacre, with around 30 of them being beheaded. The security forces have been searching the area for those missing.
