India gives more medical visas to Pakistanis

Continuing a trend that started after a promise made on Independence Day this year, India has issued medical visa for a one-year-old Pakistani seeking open heart surgery and a man seeking a liver transplant.

"We have approved the visa request for liver transplant surgery of your uncle Mr Azhar Hussain in India," External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj tweeted on Wednesday in response to a request from a Pakistani national Abbas who describes himself as a social activist and a liberal on his Twitter handle.

Hope leaders will understand the true meanings of freedom - MR

On this year’s Independence Day, it is my hope that our political leaders will make an attempt to understand the true meanings of freedom and sovereignty, former President Mahinda Rajapaksa says.

All politicians should ask themselves on this 69th independence day whether we gained independence from colonial rule only to divide the unitary state that even the colonial powers had left intact when they left, into unviable provincial units and to sell every valuable national asset we have, to foreigners, he said in a statement on Friday.

Independence Day: Resurgence lands $100M overseas start

Independence Day: Resurgence

Landing in 58 offshore markets, Roland Emmerich’s UFO return (sans Will Smith) scored a $100.1M opening weekend, off about $2M from the Sunday estimate. That is just on the edge of the $100M-$150M range we had heard on the disaster pic ahead of its bow. With an overall B CinemaScore, domestic audiences gave Resurgence a $41.6M start, and overseas is where this film has been expected to make up for any shortfall. Latin America was good (Brazil, Mexico, Argentina and others set records for Emmerich) as well as South East Asia, even if China came in at No. 2 behind Now You See Me 2.

Liam Hemsworth's new film Independence Day: Resurgence had its premier on Monday in LA. And while the red carpet saw the film's team in attendance, lead actor Liam's fiancee Miley Cyrus was conspicuous by her absence. It was only a few days ago that the "Wrecking Ball" hitmaker had confirmed her rekindled romance with her ex on Instagram.
