1. Somali on trial in Canada over journalist’s 2008 kidnap

A Somali man charged in the kidnapping of Canadian journalist Amanda Lindhout is standing trial in an Ontario court.


Ali Omar Ader was arrested in Ottawa in 2015 by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.

He faces a hostage-taking charge for his alleged role as a negotiator in the kidnapping.

The trial is due to begin on Monday seven years after the Mounties launched an international undercover operation for his capture.

Ms Lindhout and Australian freelance journalist Nigel Brennan were taken hostage near Mogadishu on 23 August 2008.


Both were released after 460 days in captivity on 25 November, 2009

Lindhout and Brennan have described having been assaulted, tortured and nearly starved during their captivity.

A ransom was paid for the pair’s release.

A Muslim leader says men have a social responsibility to take a second wife to liberate women from being spinsters.

Islamic Friendship Association of Australia founder Keysar Trad says women can benefit from joining a polyamorous relationship when there’s a shortage of eligible men.

‘If a woman is interested in him and if his wife is okay with that situation, then it becomes his duty towards society to do his bit,’ he told Daily Mail Australia on Monday.
