KARACHI: Pakistani police say a road accident on a highway in the south has killed seven members of a family, including a newlywed couple.
Officer Aslam Aqilani said on Friday that only a 2-year-old girl, who was thrown out of the car in the crash, survived when an SUV rear-ended the family’s car late on Thursday night.
The car caught fire, quickly turning into a fireball. Aqilani says police and rescue workers had to cut through metal and wreckage to retrieve the bodies.

BANDA ACEH, Indonesia: About 80 Rohingya in a wooden boat arrived in Indonesia Friday, officials said, the latest batch of the vulnerable minority to come ashore in the world’s biggest Muslim majority nation.
The group landed in Aceh province on Sumatra island, just weeks after dozens of the persecuted Muslim minority from Myanmar came ashore in neighboring Malaysia.
All appeared to be in good condition, according to local police chief Riza Yulianto, who added that it was not clear how long they had been at sea.

LONDON: Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is to leave at the end of the season after a reign of almost 22 years that made him the most successful boss in the Premier League club’s history.

Wenger, 68, has been with the North Londoners since October 1996 and is by far the longest-serving current manager in English football.
