Babylon Reports – YouTube HQ shooting, Sulaimani ends strikes, Linkin Park instruments on sale

Written by on 2018-04-04

A woman shot and wounded three people at YouTube’s headquarters in Northern California before killing herself. Police have named the suspect as Nasim Aghdam, 39, and said the incident is the result of a domestic dispute. A 36-year old man left in critical condition is believed to be her boyfriend. Two other women were also shot but police are yet to comment on the motivation for the shooting.

Meanwhile, Sulaimani’s Education Department appears to have reached a deal with striking teachers to resume classes within 24 hours while the provincial branch of the Kurdistan Health Syndicate announced the conditional end of their strike. Civil servants have been protesting for two weeks now, causing classrooms in the province to shut down for the semester.  teachers have been given permission to make adjustments so students study as much as is needed for the end-of-year examinations.

Lastly, if you’re a Linkin Park fan, you can own a bit of history and raise money for charity. More than 200 of the group’s instruments are being sold to benefit Music for Relief, an Entertainment Industry Foundation (EIF) program founded by the rock band. The sale starts Wednesday. The money will go to help people and communities affected by natural disasters.
