Nigeria police recover stolen Senate mace under flyover

Nigeria police recover stolen Senate mace under flyoverNigerian police said on Thursday they had recovered the ceremonial mace — the parliamentary symbol of authority — under a flyover after it was stolen from the Senate. The mace was snatched on Wednesday by “hoodlums” suspected to have been hired by an embattled senator who had been suspended from the upper house because of a dispute over the date of the presidential election next year. Seizing the mace has been a long-established tactic to express discontent with parliamentary proceedings in the Senate and the lower House of Representatives, as well as state legislatures.

Rescue teams recover black boxes at site of Iran plane crashRescue teams have recovered the black boxes of a plane that crashed last month in the mountains of southwestern Iran leaving 66 people dead, official media reported on Sunday. “The box that recorded flight parameters and the one with conversations in the cockpit have been handed over to judicial authorities,” Reza Jafarzadeh, the public relations director of Iran’s civil aviation organisation, told official news agency IRNA. Jafarzadeh said the two black boxes of the Aseman Airlines ATR-72 were found on Saturday by rescue teams, who had resumed search operations in the Zagros mountains on Friday after bad weather forced them to halt efforts for nearly a week.
