At least 25 people have died and hundreds have been evacuated to temporary camps after monsoon rains flooded lowlands in southern Indian state Tamil Nadu, the BTA quoted the Associated Press as saying.

Seventeen people were killed in the city of Coimbatore when a wall collapsed as a result of heavy rainfall. Eight more have been victims of various ferry-related incidents since 29 November.

Tamil Nadu’s, head of the regional government, called an emergency meeting and ordered the reservoirs to be monitored. A government hydrologist in the state capital, Chennai, said urban reservoirs, completely depleted by drought in the summer, are now full to half capacity, which is enough to guarantee water  for the 10 million city for the next six months.

In 2015, monsoon rains took the lives of over 250 people in Tamil Nadu.

A fire broke out inside a subway train and hundreds of passengers were evacuated, according to a Toronto news release quoted by the Toronto Daily.

People walked through the underground tunnel to get to the nearest subway station.

No injuries were reported. 

Metro officials said a wooden cover board contacted third rail causing a fire.

The power system was stopped until the evacuation of the passengers was completed.

The incident caused commuter chaos in the city's west end, suspending service between Keele and Ossington stations during the morning rush hour, CP24 reported.

 

The Vatican Welcomes 43 Migrants from Lesbos

The Vatican Welcomes 43 Migrants from Lesbos

The Vatican has announced that it will accept 43 more migrants from the migrant detention centre on the Greek island of Lesbos, BTA quoted DPA as saying.

The refugees will travel to Rome by plane and will be taken care of by the religious community of Sant'Egidio, which is a Catholic charity and will act on behalf of the Vatican. Cardinal Konrad Krajewski, who is the Pope's special emissary for charitable affairs, was sent to Lesbos. He will return to Rome with 33 refugees on Wednesday. Another 10 refugees will arrive in Rome later this month.

The Vatican received 12 Syrian refugees from Lesbos a while ago. They were traveling with the Pope's plane. This happened back when he visited the island in April 2016. In June the same year, nine more refugees were transferred from Lesbos to the Vatican City.

The situation at the Lesbos Migrant Centre and other Greek migrant centers is critical because they are overcrowded.

Pope Francis, who is the son of Italian immigrants in Argentina, often talks about the rights of migrants. In 2017, he raised controversy by comparing Lesbos migrant centres with concentration camps.
