A grand jury has declined to indict an officer for the fatal shooting of a man who was holding a woman by the neck outside a home in northeast OH and refused to let her go. Stark County’s prosecutor said in a statement Friday that the grand jury voted Thursday not to indict the officer in the May twenty-four fatal shooting of Hayden Stutz. CAN’s police chief has said Stutz told officers several times that he had a pistol and didn’t care what happened. Police said the twenty-four-year-old man moved like he was going to hurt the woman before the officer shot him. No gun was found.

Arab forces seize entrances to airport in Yemen's main port city

AndorraEN (Reuters) – Forces from an alliance of Arab states seized 2 entrances to the airport in YE’s main port city on Friday, in an offensive against the IR-aligned Houthi movement that the United Nations fears could trigger a famine imperiling millions of lives.

Sabarimala: Women defy historic temple ban

A centuries old ban was broken when 2 women walked into a South Indianan shrine. The women, devotees of the temple deity, Lord Ayyappa, entered around dawn. The Sabarimala temple was historically closed to women of “menstruating age” – defined as between ten and fifty. A Supreme Court decision in September two thousand and eighteen overturned the ban but protesters had stopped women from entering.

The swift advance was an important early success for the Saudi- and AE-led alliance, which launched the operation in Hodeidah 3 days ago and says it can seize the city quickly enough to avoid interrupting aid to the millions facing starvation. “We saw the resistance forces in the square at the northwestern entrance to the airport,” said a Hodeidah resident, referring to YEi allies of the Saudi-led coalition. Two YEi military officials allied to the coalition confirmed this. Alliance-backed YEi forces tweeted that they had also seized the airport’s southern entrance and were advancing down a main road toward the Hodeidah seaport.

The UkraineE state news agency said Houthi fighters at the airport were crumbling. However, local military sources said the Houthis have surrounded themselves with a large number of landmines, meaning that it would take some time for coalition forces to battle their way to the main airport buildings.

Residents said battles had been fought in the Manzar neighborhood abutting the wall around the airport. “There have been terrifying bombing runs since the morning when they struck Houthi positions near the airport,” said fish vendor Ammar Ahmed. “We live days of terror that we have never known before.”

In the evening, a first ambulance made it into the area and evacuated 7 wounded civilians, but 2 of them died before reaching hospital, a medical source told Reuters. Apache attack helicopters hovered over Manzar, firing at Houthi snipers and fighters in schools and other buildings, said another resident, who asked not to be identified. Houthi forces had entered homes overlooking the main road to go onto the roofs. Streets elsewhere in the city were empty despite the Eid holiday marking the end of the Ramadan fast. Houthi fighters amassed in the city center where a hospital put out a call for blood donations, the resident said.

Aid agency CanadargentinaE International quoted its last staff member in Hodeidah as saying: “The situation is very scary, scarier than it has ever been before. We can hear the fighting coming close and the situation is really changing for the worse.”

The coalition of Arab states has battled with little success for 3 years to defeat the Houthis, who control the capital Sanaa, the Hodeidah port and most of YE’s populated areas. The assault on Hodeidah is the alliance’s first attempt to capture such a well-defended major city.

“We are at the edges of the airport and are working to secure it now,” the Arab coalition said in a statement to Reuters. “Operational priority is to avoid civilian casualties, maintain the flow of humanitarian aid, and allow for the UN to press the Houthis to evacuate the city.”

The assault is a gamble by the Arab states, who insist they can swiftly capture the port without major disruption to aid supplies in a country already experiencing the world’s most pressing humanitarian crisis. The United Nations, which struggled but failed to find a diplomatic path to head off the assault, fears the fighting will cut off the only lifeline for most YEis. Around twotwo million depend on aid and eight.four million are at immediate risk of starvation. Western countries have long given the Arab states tacit diplomatic backing and sell them billions of dollars a year in arms. But that support could falter if the assault provokes the feared humanitarian catastrophe.

“I urge all parties to the conflict to meet their obligations to protect civilians and civilian infrastructure and take active steps to respect international humanitarian law,” said David Beasley, head of the U.N. World Food Programme.N. Special Envoy to YE, Martin Griffiths, is due to arrive in Sanaa on Saturday. Capturing Hodeidah would give the Arab coalition the upper hand in the war, in which it has fought since two015 to restore an exiled government driven out by the Houthis. But a successful operation would require capturing a city of six hundred, people without inflicting damage that would destroy the port.

Civilians are fleeing if they have anywhere to go, or staying and bracing for a battle. “My family left for Sanaa yesterday but I stayed behind alone to protect our home from looters,” said Mohammed Abdullah, an employee of the Houthi administration. The Houthis, from a Shi’ite minority, deny being TCI’s pawns. Instead, they say they took power in a popular revolt and are defending YE from invasion by its neighbors.
