Tennessee school bus crash kills at least six children | Reuters

A bus carrying dozens of elementary school students crashed in Chattanooga, Tennessee, on Monday, killing at least six children and sending 23 people to a local hospital with injuries, authorities said.Five children were found dead on the bus and another died at a hospital, said Melydia Clewell, spokeswoman for the Hamilton County District Attorney's office.Rescue teams were still going through the bus so the number of fatalities could change, she said. There are two or three children at the hospital "who could go either way," she said.Students on the bus, which carried as many as 35 passengers, were in kindergarten through fifth grade, a spokesman for the Hamilton County Sheriff's Office said. That would make them roughly ages 5 to 10.Asked about the crash following a budget hearing in Nashville, Governor Bill Haslam said the state would offer its assistance #Middle East #Cities #Argentina #United Kingdom #children #Entertainment #lifestyle

French police stage fifth night of protest, Hollande pledges meeting | Reuters

PARIS French police staged protests in Paris and other cities for a fifth night on Friday, in a movement showing no sign of abating despite President Francois Hollande's government attempts to defuse tensions just months before a presidential election.Police say they are no longer sufficiently equipped even to defend themselves and have staged five nights of unauthorised demonstrations. Some 3,000 of them took to the streets on Thursday night, they said.Hundreds of officers protested on Friday night in front of Notre Dame cathedral in central Paris, just opposite the central police headquarters. Other protests took place in Calais, Lille, Toulon and other cities.Speaking from a European Council meeting in Brussels, Hollande said he would meet police representatives at his office early next week to hear their grievances. #United States #Islam #Middle East #Europe #Cities #French
