Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader warns party leaders and supporters

At the party meeting in Chittagong's Panchlaish, Quader warned the party against accepting new members without checking out their background. Making a fervent appeal to end factionalism, Quader said: If Awami League ends up becoming its own enemy, nobody can save us. "The Chittagong unit stayed united during our troubled times, their unity showed us the way." Quader pitched for an Awami League that would become a 'smart, well organised modern party' under the leadership of Sheikh Hasina, as it prepares to face the next parliament election. The Awami League general secretary denied any pact between his party and the Hifazat-e Islam through granting recognition to degrees awarded by Qawmi madrassas.

Trump told a Pennsylvania crowd he was just getting started on meeting his campaign promises.

Trump and his staff chose to skip the press dinner because of what he said was unfair treatment by the press. “A large group of Hollywood actors and Washington media are consoling each other in a hotel ballroom in our nation’s capital right now,” Trump said to loud boos from the crowd.

Joshua wins world titles with 11th-round stoppage of Klitschko

Joshua survived a knockdown for the first time in his professional career in the sixth round and looked close to surrendering his unbeaten record until his late bombardment forced the stoppage. In a sensational fifth round, Joshua knocked down Klitschko only to end up hanging on desperately at the end of the round as the Ukrainian launched a remarkable comeback. Both men had to dig deep and both looked close to exhaustion before the 27-year-old Joshua's youth, fitness and sheer power took over in a penultimate round that sent the huge crowd into ecstasy as two barrages sent Klitschko down. As I said, I'm not perfect but I'm trying," Joshua told the cheering crowd from the ring. The Ukrainian continued in the sixth, setting up his opponent with the jab before a huge right cross sent Joshua down.
