Martin Sachse/ullstein bild via Getty Images A woman survived a close encounter with a jaguar after trying to take a selfie with it at a Phoenix-area zoo on Saturday.The big cat apparently got its claws around the woman’s hand after she crossed a concrete barrier at the Wildlife World Zoo, Aquarium and Safari Park and stepped near the cage to take the photo, a witness and authorities told CBS News.Another visitor to the zoo in Litchfield Park, Arizona, reportedly managed to divert the jaguar’s attention by jamming a water bottle into the cage, allowing the woman to pull her hand away. Cellphone video showed her writhing in pain on the ground in the aftermath.The woman later characterized the incident as a “crazy accident” rather than an attack, but didn’t admit to crossing the barrier, CBS noted. Her injuries were reportedly stitched up and she got out of the hospital Sunday, when she also apologized to the zoo owner.

AFP File PhotoIsis bride Shamima Begum could be hanged for terrorism offences if she comes to Bangladesh, reports British daily The Independent quoting Bangladesh foreign minister AK Abdul Momen.Nineteen-year-old Shamima, who left the UK to join Isis in Syria in 2015, was stripped of her British citizenship by the British home secretary Sajid Javid in February last.It is believed he felt legally able to do so because, although international law prevents someone being made stateless, Shamima has heritage rights of citizenship in Bangladesh where her father is from, reports news agency UNB quoting the The Independent report.Momen has said the teenager who is currently living in al-Hol desert refugee camp in Syria would face the death penalty if she ends up in Bangladesh.”We have nothing to do with Shamima Begum,” he told ITV News.”She is not a Bangladeshi citizen. She never applied for Bangladesh citizenship. She was born in England and her mother is British,” he said.”If anyone is found to be involved with terrorism, we have a simple rule. There will be capital punishment. And nothing else,” says foreign minister Momen.last_img read more
