News: Verdict On The American Couple In Qatar: The Bi-Racial/Death Saga

An appeals judge in Qatar on Sunday cleared American couple Matthew and Grace Huang of starving their adopted daughter to death in 2013, in a case that drew global attention to the Middle Eastern nation's justice system.
Prosecutors, however, have appealed the decision, and a travel ban remains in effect, blocking the couple from returning to the United States.
"This has been an emotional trial for me and my family," Matthew Huang said in a statement. "Grace and I want to go home and be reunited with our sons. We have not been able to grieve our daughter's death, but we want to thank the judge for today's decision."
The Huangs -- who were living in Qatar while Matthew Huang worked for a international company working on construction projects for the 2022 World Cup -- were arrested in January 2013 when their 8-year-old daughter Gloria died.

Photos: News of his children's paternity got Femi Kuti VERY upset on Twitter

This is the story:
Yesterday, many Nigerian bloggers posted this news about Afrobeat legend, Femi Kuti having a DNA test and finding out that 2 of his children were not really his and as a result 'returned' them back to their mum(s)!
Apparently that interview with Encomium magazine, Femi said, was granted 8 years ago, so he was very angry it was recycled!
I cannot categorically say which blog (blogger) started it, (Thank God we didn't even blog it), but Femi decided to take it out on this blogger and he too was also called out on Twitter by one Kayode Ogundamisi who claimed Femi's style of calling out the children that were not his was 'irresponsible'.
