According to the accounts of Belgian police and prosecutors, the attack began just before 4 p.m., when the perpetrator approached two officers stationed at the checkpoint at the front of the police headquarters, immediately pulled a machete from the sports bag he carried and swung it violently toward the officer’s heads.[3] A third officer posted nearby shot the assailant.[3] The attacker is reported to have said “Allahu Akbar” during the attack.[4][5] Prime Minister Charles Michel said the incident is believed to be a terrorist attack, making it the first terrorist attack in Belgium since the Brussels bombings in March.[3][6] The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant claimed responsibility for the attack.[1]
The attacker was a 33-year-old Algerian man who had a criminal record.[1][7] He had lived in Belgium illegally from 2012 until his death.[8][9] He attended the mosque at Farciennes.[10] Belgian authorities have released the perpetrator’s initials, K.B., but have not released his name.[3] Media outlets released the man’s name as Khaled Babbouri,[11] although some sources spelt it “Babouri”.[12]
Two deportation orders had been issued for the perpetrator, but not carried out because Algeria and Belgium lack a diplomatic agreement under which Algerian citizens can be involuntarily sent back to Algeria.[3] The perpetrator was not securely detained because Belgium has fewer spaces in secure detention facilities than individuals for whom deportation orders have been issued.[3]
Both victims were policewomen. One suffered an injury to her jaw and had to undergo a second operation to avoid fa

BWF profile

Gong Zhichao (simplified Chinese: 龚智超; traditional Chinese: 龔智超; pinyin: Gōng Zhìchāo; born December 15, 1977 in Anhua, Hunan) is a female badminton player from the People’s Republic of China.
Gong was one of the world’s leading women’s singles players between her first international titles in 1996 and her retirement in 2002. She won some of the world’s biggest tournaments including the venerable All-England Championship consecutively in 2000 and 2001 over fellow countrywomen Dai Yun and Zhou Mi respectively in the finals. Her other titles included the 1996 Asian Championships, the 2000 Copenhagen Masters; and the Denmark (1996), Swedish (1997), China (1997), Japan (1998, 2000), and Malaysia (2000) Opens. At the then biennial IBF (BWF) World Championships Gong was a silver medalist behind fellow countrywoman Ye Zhaoying in 1997, and a bronze medalist in 2001. She played winning singles for Chinese Uber Cup (women’s international) teams that reclaimed the world team title from Indonesia in 1998 and retained the title in 2000.
Unfortunately for Gong, her biggest triumph in an event for individual players, women’s singles at the 2000 Olympic Games, is tainted by controversy. According to his later statement, China’s head badminton coach Li Yongbo instructed Gong’s semifinal opponent, teammate Ye Zhaoying, to “throw” the match against her, on his assumption that Gong would have the better chance to defeat Denmark’s Camilla Martin in the final.[1] Whatever the effect of these “instructions” on Ye, a two time former IBF World Champion, she lost the match to Gong 8-11, 8-11, who in turn defeated reigning IBF World Champion Martin for the gold medal 13-10, 11-3.

Nicola Ann Sullivan (born 15 August 1958) is a British Church of England priest. She is the current Dean of Southwell and previously [[Archdeacon of Wells], a post she held despite no experience as a parish priest].
Early life and education[edit]
Sullivan was brought up in Suffolk.[1] She qualified as a nurse in 1981 and a midwife in 1984, after which she worked both in the United Kingdom and, with Tearfund, in Swaziland and Ethiopia.[2][3]
Ordained ministry[edit]
She was ordained in 1995 and her clerical career began with a curacy at St Anne’s Church in Earlham near Norwich.[1] In 1999 she took up the post of associate vicar at Bath Abbey and became chaplain to the Bishop of Bath and Wells in 2002.[4] She was made Sub-Dean of Wells Cathedral in 2003.[2]
Sullivan was appointed Archdeacon of Wells and a residentiary canon of Wells Cathedral in 2007. The role of archdeacon involves oversight of 200 parishes in the eastern half of the county of Somerset.[4][5]
In 2013, Sullivan was elected as one of eight senior women clergy, called “regional representatives”, to attend meetings of the House of Bishops, one of the three chambers of the General Synod of the Church of England, the church’s legislature.[6] As regional representative for the south-west of England (comprising the dioceses of Truro, Salisbury, Bath & Wells, Gloucester, Bristol and Exeter), she will attend meetings of the house in a speaking, but non-voting, capacity until such time as six women sit as full members of the house.[2]
On 4 April 2016, it was announced that Sullivan was to become Dean of Southwell[7] from her installation there on 17 September 2016.[8]

Born in Waupun, Wisconsin, Smith attended Penn State, after which he moved to New York City and began to form friendships that blossomed into working relationships with such talents as Leonard Bernstein, Jerome Robbins, Carson McCullers, and Agnes de Mille. In his early 20s he lived at February House in Brooklyn with a coterie of famous people centered on George Davis and W. H. Auden. He tended the furnace, washed the dishes, and soothed the tempers of both residents and visitors. His career was launched with his designs for Léonide Massine’s ballet Saratoga in 1941 and de Mille’s Rodeo in 1942.
Smith designed dozens of Broadway musicals, films (Guys and Dolls, The Band Wagon, Oklahoma!, Porgy and Bess), and operas (La Traviata). His association with the American Ballet Theatre began in 1944, when he collaborated with Robbins and Bernstein on Fancy Free, which served as the inspiration for On the Town. The following year, he became Co-Director of ABT with Lucia Chase, a position he held until 1980. He designed the sets for ABT’s complete 1967 production of Swan Lake, the first full-length version mounted by an American company.
Smith also trained young designers for many years, serving on the faculty of New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts, where he taught master classes in scenic design.
Throughout his career, Smith was nominated for twenty-five Tony Awards, often multiple times in the same year, and won ten. He was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Art Direction for his work on Guys and Dolls.

Hugh Hamilton, 1st Viscount Glenawly (c. 1600–1678), also 1st Baron of Deserf in Sweden, was a soldier in Swedish and English service.
He came from a family that descended from the Hamiltons of Dalserf, a cadet branch of the House of Hamilton. The progenitor of the Dalserf branch, David Hamilton of Dalserf, was son of John Hamilton of Cadzow (died 1402), and uncle to, James Hamilton, 1st Lord Hamilton. Hugh’s father had moved from Scotland to Ireland in c 1604. The family had obtained Monea and Ballygawley in Tyrone-Fermanagh and Hugh’s father had Monea castle built in their hereditary lands in c 1618, in Hugh’s adolescence. Hugh’s parents were Malcolm Hamilton, the anglican archbishop of Cashel since 1623, and his first wife lady Mary Willkie of Sachtonhill.
Hugh (also known as Hugo in Swedish), who mentions himself being originally a third son and with poor prospects of inheritance, moved from Ireland to Sweden and took part in Thirty Years War. He had a regiment recruited from British Isles and led them in Germany. In Swedish service, he soon rose to be colonel. He received properties Ljung and Slefringe in Östergötland.
In c. 1637 Hugh Hamilton married, for first time. The bride was Margaret Forratt (d 1653), of Scots family, and widow of colonel and ambassador baron James Spens (Jakob), 1st Friherre of Orreholmen, who had died 1632, and been in Swedish service. Friherrinna Margaret had two sons of her first marriage (major, baron Axel Spens of Orreholmen, 1626–56, and colonel, baron Jakob Spens of Orreholmen, 1627–65), who thus became Hugh’s stepsons. In his first marriage, lord Hugh got one surviving child, his daughter baroness Bridget Margaret Hamilton af Deserf, who in 1659 married baron Kustaa Adolf Skytte of Tuutarhovi.
He was the first Hamilton in Swedish military service to get the rights of nobleman in Swedish chamber of nobles as in 1648 he and his youngest half-brother Lewis (Ludvig) Hamilton were naturalized as Swedish noblemen in Sweden. In 1654, he and Ludvig were created Friherre af Deserf by King Charles X Gustav of Sweden, and thus Hugh became the 1st Baron of Deserf in peerage of Sweden. His relatives, barons and counts Hamilton (descended from his nephews whom Hugh encouraged to come to Swedish service), continue up to today Sweden.
Baroness Margaret had died, and Hugh married secondly a lady whose name was Jacomina. In c 1659, Hugh married for third time, the young lady Susan Balfour of Pitcullo, a kinswoman related with fa
