Snooty, the world's oldest manatee, dies in shocking accident
The world's oldest manatee was expected to live even longer before he died in a tragic accident. Museum staff were heartbroken when their pride and joy perished a day after celebrating his 69th birthday. The South Florida Museum chief executive Brynne Anne Besio explained the death of the beloved animal in a statement. He said Snooty?s death appeared to be ?a heartbreaking accident? and added that staff were ?devastated?. Museum provost and chief operating officer Jeff Rodgers said Snooty died after becoming stuck in a maintenance hatch leading off his tank.

It is thought the animal drowned, but an necropsy is yet to be completed. He said the three other manatees were not injured.

"Snooty was such a unique animal and he had so much personality that people couldn?t help but be drawn to him. As you can imagine, I ? and our staff, volunteers and board members ? considered him a star. We all deeply mourn his passing."

Rodgers said. ?He?s been with us for 68 years ? generations have grown up with that manatee. The emotional outpouring today? we grieve right along with these folks. We?ve given a lot of hugs on the front porch of the museum today. ?A lot of people loved that manatee. We loved him too.?

Afghanistan's Shiites mark anniversary of deadly attack
The site west of Kabul is the last resting place for victims of a deadly suicide bombing on July 23 last year -- the first claimed by the Islamic State group in the heart of Kabul against Afghanistan's Shiite Muslim Hazara ethnic minority. The line from Turkmenistan to Kabul, capital of energy-starved Afghanistan, bypasses the province of Bamiyan, a Hazara stronghold. For Hazara leaders the route is a further sign of discrimination against their community and their province, one of the least developed in Afghanistan.
