The blast occurred on the Jamal Abdannaser street near Tibisti Hotel late on Thursday, said Benghazi joint security chamber's spokesman Tariq al-Kharraz. The area was closed off for fear of other similar attacks, Xinhua news agency reported. "It is too early to reveal any information related to the attack", which was "purely terrorist", the spokesperson said. Benghazi, Libya's second largest city, has been targeted frequently by car bombs and suicide attacks. In response to the deteriorating security situation, the city set up a joint security chamber comprising Army and police officers.

The Foreign Ministry said in a statement that it would study the joint investigation team's findings and reiterated the team's call for information from insiders and witnesses, Efe news reported. The statement comes a day after a Dutch-led international team of investigators said it was "convinced" that the BUK missile system used to shoot down the plane came from the 53rd Anti Aircraft Missile Brigade, a unit of the Russian army from Kursk, near the Ukrainian border. The Boeing 777 crash on July 17, 2014 killed all 298 people on board when it was shot down flying from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur.

Some Pakistan players were seen sporting the devices during the opening day of their first Test against England at Lord’s on Thursday and were cautioned by an ICC anti-corruption officer. "Communications devices are prohibited within the player and match officials area. “Next time nobody will wear them.”Only match officials are allowed specific communication devices to communicate with their colleagues while they perform their duties. Match-fixing has become a major concern for the ICC in recent years with a high-profile incident involving Pakistan on a previous tour to England forming one of cricket’s low points. All three players served time in prison and were handed multi-year bans from the game after a tribunal found them guilty of spot-fixing.

The crackdown on narcotics rolled into the seventh day, bringing the number of so-called shootout deaths to 56. Law-enforcement agencies claimed they engaged in ‘gun battles’ with drug traffickers in eight districts from Thursday night to Friday morning. However, at different times the families of the deceased came up with the complaints that they were arrested and killed. Such incidents are often referred to as "crossfire" killings in the media and common parlance, a term that has come to imply suspicious, or extra-judicial, killings. They are demanding an end to these extrajudicial killings.

I fervently believe that more people should join The Sun, talk to The Sun and read The Sun every day. Join The Sun, trek to the Commons, learn to edit out Oxford commas. But I’ll always be the most grateful for those late night walks up the hill because they were so full of laughter and joy. Phoebe Keller is graduating from the College of Arts and Sciences. She served as managing editor on the 134th editorial board, and as an assistant news editor on the 133rd editorial board.

In my first-year writing seminar in the fall of my freshman year, we were tasked with writing about what we thought of writing. Thank you to Zach Silver ‘19 for being the best assistant sports editor I could have asked for. What I got instead was incredibly different, but it was so much better and I’m incredibly grateful to The Sun for it. Adam Bronfin is graduating from the College of Architecture, Art and Planning.

It is, perhaps, the only way I can describe how the last four years here at Cornell have felt. To address the more serious side of things, The Sun taught me that there is immeasurable power in quality journalism. It was the closest thing to water on an ambling Cornell path, a steady good during all the hills and the valleys. Paulina Glass is graduating from the College of Arts and Sciences.

Truth be told, I thought the Design Department was a writing section about fashion and wrote it off (I know, I’m shaking my head too). Four weeks later, I somehow was asked to design a front page — mind you, I had little to no design experience before The Sun, my major is ILR! You told me one time that the Design Department is much more powerful than you think and you were 150 percent right. In August 2016, I could have listed the entire design department staff on one hand (shout out to Wei, Melody, Emma and Megan)!

No, the moment I’ve feared most is having to convince the Cornell Daily Sun’s readership that the photo editor can write more than a one sentence cutline. Four years and 300,000 photos later, I’m somehow a professional photographer, and at least a slightly better citizen. Pursuant to this ideal, it is imperative not only that we tell diverse stories, but that a diverse group of photographers tell them. Cornell is brutal, but it is beautiful too; nowhere else will you find places and people so vibrant, so vivid.
