  • New Zealand's Ban On Assault Rifles Is Now In Effect

    Business Insider reports New Zealand's new ban on many types of firearms went into effect on Friday after the government overwhelmingly passed legislation earlier this week to prohibit certain types of guns. The new legislation comes just 4 weeks after a gunman killed 50 people at two mosques in Christchurch on March 15. The new law forbids the circulation and use of military-style semi-automatic weapons, assault rifles, and their associated parts. The law's quick passage was prompted by outrage at the deaths of 50 innocent people at the hands of a gunman who used legal weapons to carry out the massacre.

  • Jonathann Daval face à la reconstitution du meurtre de sa femme

    Jonathann Daval est arrivé lundi peu avant 5 heures sur les lieux de la reconstitution judiciaire du meurtre de son épouse Alexia, qu’il a avoué avoir commis en octobre 2017 à Gray-la-Ville (Haute-Saône), dans une zone pavillonnaire bouclée depuis la veille au soir par la gendarmerie. La reconstitution a débuté ce lundi à l'aube, afin de coller peu ou prou aux circonstances du meurtre commis de nuit dans la maison du couple. Cette reconstitution a pour but d'éclaircir deux points : la violence des coups constatés par le médecin légiste et la crémation, en partie, du corps de la jeune femme.
