PARIS: The two French tourists rescued from their kidnappers in Burkina Faso this week were seized in an area of Benin that France has long advised travellers to avoid, Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian said Saturday (May 11). "The zone where our two citizens were has for some time now been considered a red zone, which means it's a zone where you shouldn't go, where you're taking significant risks if you do go," Le Drian told Europe 1 radio.The foreign ministry's travel advisory website lists the areas of northern Benin near the border with Burkina Faso as "Formally Discouraged," including Pendjari National Park.It warns of "the presence of armed terrorist groups and the risk of kidnapping."The French tourists, Patrick Picque, 51, and Laurent Lassimouillas, 46, disappeared during a tour of Pendjari on May 1.The disfigured body of their guide was found shortly after they were reported missing, along with their abandoned Toyota truck.Intelligence agencies tracked their captors … [Read more...] about Kidnapped French tourists were in Benin ‘red zone’: Minister

I'm horrified by weekend movie ticket prices and unfortunately have no time on weekdays to head to the cinema. Plus, I feel a little regret whenever I spend on movie tickets and throughout the movie, all I hear are the sounds of a baby crying or children shouting at characters on the screen (no hate on toddlers and babies, I just like to enjoy my movies in silence).

If you didn't already know, Singaporeans who have never been married before can buy a HDB flat once they turn 35. While you may not be eligible for another decade or so, it's a good idea to know how much you'll need to buy a flat so you can start getting your finances in order. We talk to Amy Lim, an associate division director at Propnex Realty, to help you figure out what sort of flat you'll be able to get at 35, and how much you'll need to put down for it*. BTO OR RESALE? There are two main options when it comes to buying a HDB flat: brand new Build-to-Order (BTO) flats or resale flats from the open market.

So Dubas will let us know when he knows and he hasn’t said anything yet, so the #BabcockWatch will carry on. Article Continued Below It’s really too close to call right now, whether Babcock will be back for Season 5. It’s a bit like Game of Thrones, where some of your favourite characters don’t make it to the end. Jake Gardiner’s not making it. A bit like Theon Greyjoy there. We all thought … [Read more...] about Babcock watch: Grading a coach whose job is on the line
