From India to Hong Kong: How Britains empire crumbled

Britains biggest and most important possession, India was viewed as the jewel in the crown of the Empire. In the 1930s and 40s, the Indian independence movement picked up steam under the leadership of Mahatma Gandhi and other revolutionary leaders and by 1947, the country was given its independence. 50 years later, Hong Kong was handed back to China, and so came the symbolic end of the British Empire.  Jul 1, 2017

CCTV shows man wanted for violent robbery on 92-year-old-woman

Detectives in Hackney have released CCTV footage of a man wanted for committing a violent robbery on an elderly woman in broad daylight on June 27. The man made several attempts to grab her bag; he used such force that she was pulled to the ground. The victim, who was screaming, refused to let go of her bag, so the suspect dragged her until she was in so much pain that she eventually let go. The victim, who recently lost her husband of nearly 70 years, is currently being supported by her family, including her niece who described how she is incredibly distraught, nervous and does not wish to be named out of fear.
