#AceNewsReport – Aug.30: The passenger boat sank carrying more than 100 people, with the driver of a cargo vessel suspected of colliding with the boat arrested…….
#AcDailyNews says that a Bangladeshi passenger boat sinks after it collides with cargo vessel, killing at least 22 and about 50 passengers were missing after the incident on Friday evening in a large open body of water in the eastern district of Brahmanbaria, according to initial reports from officials and Bangladeshi media…

However, no passengers were believed missing after nearly 24 hours of search efforts, said Emon Sarker, a duty officer with the district’s fire service and civil defence, who also provided the final death toll.
“Maybe many swam to safety. There was no passenger list. It happens here. Today, nobody came to us looking for any missing people,” Mr Sarker said by phone.
Bangladesh is a delta nation where water transport is heavily used to move people and goods.
But deadly accidents are common because of unskilled operation and poor enforcement of safety rules.
The country is crisscrossed by 230 rivers, and during the monsoon season some low-lying areas fill with water and are also used by boats.
The cargo boat’s driver and two assistants were caught by locals in the Bijoynagar area and turned over to the authorities, said Anisur Rahman, the district police superintendent.
Mr Sarker said the sunken boat was still submerged and would be brought to shore on Sunday.
Survivors said about 100 people were aboard. Local news reports, quoting the area’s top government administrator, Hayat-Ud-Dola, said about 50 people were missing.
A witness said two cargo vessels hit the boat, which sank quickly, Dhaka-based The Daily Star newspaper reported.
“I was grazing cattle on the bank. I heard a loud noise and saw the cargo vessels hitting the passenger trawler. I saw the trawler sinking quickly,” witness Nurul Amin told the paper.
The Bijoynagar area is 82 kilometres east of the capital, Dhaka.
#AceNewsReport – June.21: Local news reports said Serou was last seen on Tuesday after getting into a car. Her mother, Beccy Serou, of Vicksburg, Mississippi, told NPR that her daughter had last texted her: “In a car with a stranger. I hope I’m not being abducted.”
US student, ex-Marine found dead in Russia after cryptic text: ‘I hope I’m not being abducted: The body of Catherine Serou, a 34-year-old law student and veteran from California, was found Saturday morning according to Fox News
A female former U.S. Marine has turned up dead in Russia after catching a ride with a stranger and nervously texting her mom, “I hope I’m not being abducted,’’ according to reports.
The body of Catherine Serou, a 34-year-old law student and veteran from California, was found Saturday morning in a forest outside the Bor suburb where she lived in western Russia — about an hour after a 44-year-old man was arrested in her disappearance, said the Moscow Times and NPR.
Serou had gone missing Tuesday evening as she was headed back to a business to try to quickly clear up a payment issue, her mom told NPR.
The Afghanistan war vet may have gotten into a passing car for a lift rather than wait for her Uber, said her mom, Beccy Serou, of Vicksburg, Mississippi.
“In a car with a stranger. I hope I’m not being abducted,’’ Catherine wrote her mother in her last text.
The mom told NPR she has no idea what happened to her daughter next but, “I think that when she saw that the person wasn’t driving to the clinic but instead was driving into a forest, she panicked.
“Her telephone last pinged off a cell tower in that forest,’’ the mom said.
A surveillance photo reportedly shows Catherine looking out an open passenger-side window of a silver car around when she vanished.
More than 100 volunteers scoured local forests last week for any sign of the law student — before her suspected killer was cuffed, authorities said. The accused man was not identified, but he has prior convictions and is cooperating, they said, according to the Moscow outlet.
The U.S. Embassy in Moscow said it is “closely monitoring” the probe into Catherine’s death.
The student was in Russia to begin studying law while learning the language so she could return to the States and work as an immigration attorney, reports said.
She had sat for a videotaped interview posted on a Russian Web site last year in which she laughed about the cultural differences between the U.S. and Russia.
Catherine was enrolled at Lobachevsky University about 250 miles east of Moscow studying in its master’s law program, after having gotten a bachelor’s degree in design and master’s in art history from the University of California at Davis, reports said.
YWN Reports: US Student Found Killed In Russia, Suspect Arrested: The body of Catherine Serou, 34, was found in a wooded area near the city of Bor, 400 kilometers (250 miles) east of Moscow, the reports said.
June 20, 2021 8:00 am:
Russia’s Investigative Committee said in a statement that a woman’s body was found in Bor and that a suspect with a record of serious crimes had been arrested, but did not give names. The cause of death was not specified.
Catherine Serou moved from California to Russia in 2019 to study law at a university in Nizhny Novgorod, a major city adjacent to Bor, news reports said.
Beccy Serou told NPR that her daughter was in a hurry to get to a clinic Tuesday and may have gotten into a passing car.
“I think that when she saw that the person wasn’t driving to the clinic, but instead was driving into a forest, she panicked,” Beccy Serou said.
U.S. MARSHALS, TBI, DCS ANNOUNCE RESULTS OF ‘OPERATION VOLUNTEER STRONG’
EAST TENNESSEE: January 4th – 15th
Authorities identified 86 missing children, of which 56 were recovered, five of them in other states.
Of the 56 children recovered, authorities located 27 of them in the weeks leading up to the operation, and three after it concluded.
Law enforcement identified three of the recovered juveniles as potential human trafficking victims, resulting in a still-active TBI investigation.
“The U.S. Marshals are committed to assisting state and local agencies with locating and recovering endangered missing children to help prevent their falling victim to crimes of violence and exploitation,” said David Jolley, U.S. Marshal for the Eastern District of Tennessee. “We will use every resource at our disposal to help find these missing children.”
MIDDLE TENNESSEE: January 25th – February 5th
Authorities identified 72 missing children, of which 42 were recovered.
Of the 42 children recovered, authorities located 29 of them in the weeks leading up to the operation, and 13 during the operation.
Law enforcement identified one child as a potential human trafficking victim, resulting in a still-active TBI investigation.
“We can’t give up. We need the public, the media, and all law enforcement to not give up,” said Denny King, U.S. Marshal for the Middle District of Tennessee. “If you see something, or know something, say something. We cannot give up and stop searching for our most vulnerable and those who cannot help themselves.”
WEST TENNESSEE: February 8th – 12th & February 22nd – 26th
Authorities identified 82 missing children, of which 52 were recovered, three of them in other states.
Of the 52 children recovered, authorities located 33 of them in the weeks leading up to the operation, 18 during the operation, and one after it concluded
While searching for missing children, authorities located two adults with outstanding warrants.
Law enforcement identified one of the recovered juveniles as a human trafficking victim, resulting in a still-active investigation by a Mississippi local law enforcement agency and FBI.
Authorities safely recovered a child during an active kidnapping investigation, resulting in the arrest of the suspect.
“I hope this operation changes the course for 150 young lives and leads them to the path of opportunities every child deserves,” said Tyreece Miller, U.S. Marshal for the Western District of Tennessee. “Our efforts should also serve notice to those who prey on society’s most vulnerable that these children are not forgotten. Investigations will continue and the next knock at the door could be for you.”
During the operation, the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC), based in Alexandria, VA, provided research and analytical support.
“Operation Volunteer Strong is a great example of how working together, we can find missing children and get them the help they need to move forward,” said John Clark, NCMEC’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “We’re thrilled to see so many missing children recovered in Tennessee and we thank all the agencies involved for their dedication to child protection.”
The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation serves as the clearinghouse for missing children in the state of Tennessee. In this role, the agency provides support to local law enforcement agencies, raises awareness of missing children and prevention efforts, and administers high-profile efforts to locate missing children in dangerous situations through its Endangered Child Alert and AMBER Alert programs.
“Many people don’t realize this, but hundreds of children go missing in our state every month,” said TBI Director David Rausch. “From runaways that may leave their home out of desperation or despair, to those entangled in a custody battle, every single one of them deserves a fighting chance, and that’s why they also deserve our best work to help them.”
Most of the children recovered during the operation will receive services through the Tennessee Department of Children’s Services, which may include placements in foster homes, group homes, or other specialized care.
“We are grateful that missing children have been recovered and are now receiving the services and treatment they need to stay safe and healthy,” said DCS Commissioner Jennifer Nichols. “This operation was truly a collaboration and it’s strengthened relationship with our law enforcement partners. Working together, the agents, marshals, and DCS case managers put in countless hours to track down leads and locate these missing children.”
The rally’s participants used a metal police barricade as a battering ram, trying to storm the National Palace in Mexico City, which is mostly used for ceremonies involving President Enrique Pena Nieto.
Having failed to break into the National Palace, protesters set its front doors on fire. They managed to damage the entrance to the building, but were unable to get inside and were eventually driven away by police.
The storming of the National Palace came as the climax of Saturday’s mass rally which was inspired by Attorney General Jesus Murillo Karam’s revelation Friday that three Guerreros Unidos gang members in custody had confessed to killing the students and incinerating their bodies, and had claimed that the young men were handed over to them by the police.
“We are asking the same thing as usual. We want to see our comrades alive,” a masked student told AFP as others chanted, “They took them alive, we want them back alive.” The students went missing on September 26, when they clashed with police during a protest in the southwestern town of Iguala. After police detained them and took them away, the students were not seen again.
Protesters wearing masks outside the Guerrero state building in Chilpancingo tossed firebombs and torched around a dozen vehicles, including trucks and a federal police vehicle.
Besides the allegations that the students were led to their eventual deaths by law enforcement agents, Mexicans were furious with the Attorney General’s remarks during the press conference. After an hour of fielding questions, Jesus Murillo Karam abruptly signaled for an end to the press conference by turning away from reporters and saying, “Ya me canse” or “I’ve had enough.”
The phrase immediately exploded on social networks while protesters used the phrase to draw graffiti as a sign of dissent. “Enough, I’m tired of Murillo Karam,” says one. Another asks, “If you’re tired, why don’t you resign?”
In connection with the massacre, authorities said they have already arrested 74 people, including the ousted mayor, Jose Luis Abarca, his wife Maria de los Angeles Pineda, 36 police officers and several Guerreros Unidos gang members.
