Correfoc: Run with the Devil in Spain
Palma de Mallorca
By Marisa Candia Cadavid and Carwyn Jones
23 Jun 2016

Every summer, Spanish Mediterraneans celebrate the day of Sant Joan with screeching fireworks, demented devils, fire-breathing dragons and raging bonfires. Evil spirits are chased away by 'dimonis' - devils - and the public are allowed to join in with little respect for health and safety.

The origins of 'correfoc' - fire-running - date back to the 12th century. In Palma de Mallorca, as elsewhere in Catalonia, Valencia and the Balearic Islands, running with the devil eludes the attempts of the European Union to regulate its safety. It continues much as it always has.

Global Refugee Crisis: The Worst Sinc...
Beirut
By b.yaacoub
11 Jun 2015

June 20 is World Refugee Day.

In 2014, global refugee numbers were higher than they have ever been since World War II. In 2015, the problem has only gotten worse.

There are currently over 50 million refugees in the world and more than %50 of them are children. Approximately half of the world's refugees are from just three countries: Afghanistan, Syria, and Somalia.

The response to this massive international crisis has been limited, with most refugee aid programs desperately underfunded. Amnesty International has called the lack of robust international response "A Conspiracy of Neglect." With little help on the way, the future of the world's displaced remains uncertain.
