    (CNN)Mary Johnson was on her way to a friend's home in Oso, Washington, the day before Thanksgiving, but she never made it. A year later, her disappearance remains a mystery.Johnson, then 39 years old and an enrolled citizen of the Tulalip Tribes, was last seen on the reservation on November 25, 2020. Even though family members have posted flyers, put up a billboard on a local interstate, and a reward for information was offered by the FBI, Johnson, like many other missing Indigenous women in the United States, has not been found."At this point, we're information-driven, any information we get is followed up on, but leads are harder and harder to find as we get further along," said Wayne Schakel, a detective sergeant with the Tulalip Tribal Police Department.For years, families and activists have demanded that authorities direct more attention and resources to cases involving missing and murdered Indigenous women, arguing their cases are often overlooked or dismissed. Federal and state officials have recently publicly acknowledged that there is a "crisis of violence" against Native Americans, and have launched efforts to address...

    President Biden's "obsession" with reversing former President Donald Trump's policies is "unacceptable," former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley told "America Reports" Wednesday. NIKKI HALEY: We had the solution. I mean, the Trump administration had the same migrant problem, but they fixed it. And what they did was they used tough love with our friends. You know, Guatemala and Honduras are friends of America. They are not anti-American. These kids are -- and so many of these migrants are -- coming from Central America. And what the president did was he gave them tough love. He said, "This is what we expect of you. We will partner with you, but you've got to control the situation in your country. If they want asylum, they have to apply from there. From there." He worked through Mexico, which is where they were coming from, to make sure that we had a handle on it. ... It's really unacceptable that Biden is so obsessed with Trump reversals that he'll literally put the American public and these kids at risk the way...

    BAMAKO (Reuters) - Eleven Malian soldiers were killed and 11 more are missing after Islamist militants ambushed a patrol in the desert north, the army said on Tuesday. Fourteen soldiers were also wounded, eight of them seriously, in the attack in the northern region of Gao on Monday, the army said in a statement. It added that seven militants were killed in an ensuing exchange of fire. Islamist militants, who seized Mali's desert north in 2012 before being pushed back by French-led forces the following year, have stepped up attacks in the north and centre in recent years. Many are linked to al Qaeda or Islamic State. Last year was Mali's deadliest on record due to attacks by the militants, tit-for-tat violence between rival ethnic groups and killings by security forces, according to data compiled by the Armed Conflict Location & Event Data Project (ACLED). The militants have also used Mali as a base to extend their operations into neighbouring Burkina Faso and Niger, defying attempts by regional, French and U.N. troops to contain them.

    A boating incident on the Congo river left 60 people dead and more than 200 missing, according to Congo's humanitarian affairs minister. Minister Steve Mbikayi reported that a whaling boat with more than 700 people aboard and cargo sank Sunday night and that 300 survivors were found near the site of the disaster in the western part of the country. "We sympathize with the bereaved families and demand the sanctions against all those responsible for the transport sector," Mbikayi tweeted, according to Twitter's English translation. Mbikayi also said night navigation played a role in the crash. The vessel was traveling from the capital of Kinshasa to Mbandaka when it sank near Longola Ekoti, according to Voice of America.

    Dozens have been killed and houses have been buried in up to 50ft of mud after a huge landslide in Guatemala brought about by Hurricane Eta. Rescue teams are desperately searching for more than 100 missing people, with 21 confirmed dead as the storm continues to batter Central America.    Eta's torrential downpours toppled trees, engorged swift-moving rivers, and ripped down parts of a mountainside above the village of Queja in the central Guatemalan region of Alta Verapaz, burying dozens of people in their homes.  The tropical storm is now heading towards Cuba and the southern tip of Florida, with further destruction expected.

    About 150 people have either died or remain unaccounted for in Guatemala due to mudslides caused by Eta, a powerful storm that buried an entire village, President Alejandro Giammattei said Friday. As the remnants of the hurricane moved back over Caribbean waters, governments in Central America worked to tally the displaced and dead, and recover bodies from landslides and flooding that claimed dozens of lives from Guatemala to Panama. "We will use every resource, human or material, because we will get through this together," Giammattei said on Twitter. He also posted video of rescue teams delivering aid via helicopter.

    The body of a pregnant woman was discovered in the freezer of her boyfriend’s house on Monday. Police in San Angelo, Texas found the body while performing a warranted search on the home of William James Martinez. The authorities found the body of a young woman wrapped in a blue tarp and buried in the freezer of Martinez’s kitchen. The woman was later identified as 23-year-old Selena Ann Bradley, according to WHDH. Bradley had been reported missing since October 16th. Authorities stated that Selena was most likely ‘struck and assaulted’, according to WHDH. An autopsy will be performed to determine the cause of death.

    What would you think if local politicians decided to cut the size of their fire department while buildings in their city were ablaze? What about a general who orders his soldiers to stop fighting and surrender to the enemy? Something similar has occurred in the once tranquil city of Seattle, Wash., where in the midst of riots and over the objections of the mayor and police chief, the city council has voted to defund the police and reduce by 100 the number of officers on the force. The city council added to the indignity by cutting the chief's salary. Seattle Police Chief Carmen Best resigned in her own form of protest. SEATTLE POLICE CUTS FACE POTENTIAL FEDERAL PUSHBACK Seattle has about 1,400 police officers, clearly not enough given the ongoing lawlessness. The council vote to reduce the force is far less than the 50 percent cut demanded by the Black Lives Matter organization, which increasingly seems to be running -- and ruining -- Seattle and other cities. This decision could be seen as a victory for mob rule and could...
