The Catch Up: 10 May

The headlines this evening from the Indian Express.

 

TRANSCRIPT

This is the Catch Up on 3 Things for the Indian Express and I’m Damini Jaiman. 

It’s the 10th of May and here are the headlines.

Today, according to the Associated Press, Ukraine’s vital Black Sea port of Odesa came under repeated missile attacks, including from some hypersonic missiles. Ukrainian forces reported that seven missiles were fired at a shopping centre and a warehouse in Odesa, killing one and wounding five. This comes as bodies of 44 civilians were found in the rubble of a building  about 120 kms from the city of Kharkiv.

Meanwhile, violence erupted in Sri Lanka yesterday after supporters of Mahinda Rajapaksa — who has since resigned from his post as prime minister — attacked peaceful anti-government protesters demanding his removal over the country’s worst economic crisis. Today a protest began in front of Sri Lanka’s Trincomalee Naval Base after reports emerged that Rajapaksa and some of his family members were there after leaving the official residence in Colombo. Over 200 people have also been injured in the violence in Colombo and other cities.

Meanwhile, The National Family Health Survey 5 report was released today. The report shows that India has finally achieved the replacement rate of 2.1 Total Fertility Rate. Total Fertility Rate is the total number of children a woman will bear in her lifetime. Several states are well below the replacement level, compensating for the five states that are above the national average of 2. 

Today, Pandit Shivkumar Sharma, Indian music composer and santoor player, passed away in Mumbai. He was 84. He had been suffering from kidney-related issues for the last six months and was on dialysis. He passed away due to cardiac arrest.

Yesterday evening a Rocket-Propelled Grenade was fired at the Punjab Police’s Intelligence headquarters in Mohali triggering a blast at the site. Hours after the blast, Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann said that those trying to disturb Punjab’s peace will not be spared. He informed that some arrests have been made and the investigation is underway. 

This was the Catch-up on 3 Things by The Indian Express.
