The wedding today is, above all, an occasion of great joy, especially for the couple themselves. We pray that one day soon this opportunity for Godly happiness, will be made possible for all couples who wish to publicly acknowledge their love for each other and to promise to "keep" each other through all the joys and trials of life.

Sorry to report the death of a true eccentric: known to most as Brother Randy. He was found dead in his bathroom this afternoon (28th. April).
Rest well, dear Brother Randy — your solitary days are over as you join the choir celestial.

From THE NEW YORK TIMES:
A military court in Bahrain sentenced four Shiite Muslim protesters to death on Thursday in the killing of two policemen last month during demonstrations against the Sunni Muslim-ruled government, Bahrain’s national news agency reported. Three other activists who were also on trial in the same case received sentences of life in prison.
Human rights activists in Bahrain voiced fears that the verdicts could generate a new wave of protests in the tiny Persian Gulf kingdom. They also argued that the trial was rendered unfair by a series of legal abuses, including the arrest of one of the defendants’ lawyers, Mohammed al-Tajer, one of Bahrain’s most prominent attorneys. The suspects were also barred from meeting with their families, and the news media were not allowed to cover the trial.

Riots have broken out in Uganda's capital, Kampala, over the treatment of opposition leader Kizza Besigye. People have been blocking roads and burning tyres, and police have been firing rubber bullets and tear gas.
Mr Besigye sought medical treatment after being tear-gassed in his car and bundled roughly into a truck when he was arrested on Thursday. It was his fourth detention this month for his participation in a "walk-to-work" campaign over high prices.
