Japanese Embassy officials in Ethiopia say DNA tests have identified one of the five victims in an armed attack in the country in March as a Japanese woman in her 40s.

The California wildfires have caused a lot of devastation. There have been casualties while countless people have had to evacuate their homes to survive. The fires have even laid waste to houses. The firefighters and first responders have done an incredible job of saving as many lives as possible, not caring about themselves or their possessions. That’s what nurse Allyn Pierce did as well. He drove his Toyota Tundra truck through the flames to help victims. His heroics have earned him a lot of praise and Toyota has now stepped up with an offer to replace his truck.
Pierce manages the intensive care unit at the Adventist Health Feather River Hospital in Paradise, California. The town has been badly affected by the fires. He drove his truck through the flames to get to the hospital where victims required medical assistance.
