SUN SUNI KHABAR MAY 19TH, 2016
Hillary Clinton became Barack Obama’s Secretary of State after the bitterly fought primary battle of the 2008 election. However, the road was slow and tense. When her and Obama finally shook hands in December, the Democratic party breathed a sigh of relief, knowing that it was safe from fracturing. A similar situation seems to be arising between Bernie Sanders and Clinton. A drawn out fight in the primaries and speculations about each other’s qualifications have seemed to divide the Democratic party. However, as Clinton said in one of her speeches, there is much more that unites the two than divides them. With the general election fast approaching, it will be interesting to see how the Democratic nominee will help the challenger.
WRECKAGE OF EGYPTAIR 804 FOUND
EgyptAir 804 disappeared on a flight from Paris to Cairo on Wednesday. Preliminary searches for the Airbus A320 did not yield any results. As one of many planes that have vanished, the EgyptAir 804 is speculated to have been the target of a terrorist attack. "Planes today just don't fall out of the sky," CNN aviation analyst Miles O'Brien said. U.S. officials believe that the plane was taken down by a bomb. While it is still a working theory, Egyptian Civil Aviation Minister Sharif Fathi believes that the probability of a terrorist attack is higher than the alternative of technical problems. However, in a surprising turn of events, searchers found the wreckage of the Airbus A320.
WARRIORS STORM GAME 2
Warriors fans were holding their breath after Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals. A narrow loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder had Dubs fans questioning how far their team would be able to take it. However, Curry and Co. stormed back in Game 2 to take the Thunder down by a considerable margin. It was something we’d seen all season. A Warriors team that knew each other inside out, and knew how to dismantle their opponent. This one was an anomaly though. With the form the Thunder are on right now, coupled with the pressure of the postseason, the Warriors were supposed to fall to this team. Instead, they ramped up defense, made their shots, and put the game away. The final score was 118-91.
BJP EXCITED BY WIN IN ASSAM
Voting in Delhi and Bihar was not kind to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who suffered “humiliating defeats” in the two cities. This year’s BJP polls have heralded the success of aggressive nationalism in India. Diehard patriots affected Modi’s success in Delhi and Bihar, just as they did during the Afzal Guru-JNU controversy. However, good news for the BJP came in Western Bengal and Kerala. The two states lifted Modi’s campaign along with party president Amit Shah’s reputation as a top poll strategist. Modi and the BJP’s recent successes have brought them closer to fulfilling their vision of a Congress free India. The BJP rivals now hold power in just six states.
