6.9 earthquake Banda Sea Indonesia
May 6, 2020 - Powerful 6.9-magnitude earthquake strikes off Indonesia: islanders ran from their homes. Depth 99 km, 73 miles. Residents on Kisar Island were woken by shaking beds and many fled homes. No immediate injuries have been reported by officials and a tsunami is unlikely
A coup in Qatar game-changer
May 5, 2020 - Saudi has had a blockade of Qatar for months.
If rumours about a coup in Qatar turn out to be true
Unusual activity was reported in Al Wakrah in Doha.
Attiyah, Qatar’s ambassador to Moscow, said this is fake news.
The attempted coup was led by former Qatar PM Sheikh Hamad bin Jassim. Qatar’s Emir was supposedly heading to London on a private airplane to escape.
Saudi Gazette article alleging that Sheikh Mubarak Bin Khalifa Al-Thani, a member of Qatar’s ruling family, called on Qatar’s Emir to step down. For the record, the Saudi Gazette doesn’t appear to be all that impressed with Al-Thani’s performance either.
There was a report that Saudi Arabia and the UAE had planned to invade and overthrow Qatar’s leadership. Saudi Arabia, the UAE etc cut diplomatic ties with Qatar and blockaded it.
So is this fake news, old news, or future news?
