The IĠM expressed its solidarity with ONE TV journalists and camerapersons who were the subjects of such behaviour, with the institute highlighting how any form of abuse at journalists is unacceptable, urging the police to investigate the matter.

Notably, the IĠM stated the unfortunate state of the country’s attitude towards journalists as it continues its downward trend as authorities and politicians continue to denigrate the sector with comments targeting journalists.

“The institute once again calls on the authorities to acknowledge the role of the media, its vital importance for a healthy democracy and take action to ensure safety of journalists at all times,” a post read.

This comes after masses congregated to Valletta on Thursday evening to protest opposite parliament in light of the recent Steward Health Care Malta revelation.

On Thursday, the Nationalist Party shared a snap of the crowds opposite Parliament, with the caption stating “Currently gathered in front of Parliament, because you deserve better. No to fraud, theft and bribery.”

Doctors reveal shocking truth about cocaine’s severe damage to your nose

Doctors reveal shocking truth about cocaine's severe damage to your nose

Medical professionals in the United Kingdom are cautioning individuals who indulge in cocaine to quit using the drug, as it can cause severe damage to the nose.

The numb sensation that accompanies cocaine use can become permanent, and the number of patients requiring treatment for cocaine-related damage is increasing annually, according to Nicholas Calder, a nasal reconstructive surgeon at University Hospital Monklands.

Cocaine is frequently mixed with harmful substances such as Levamisole and Phenacetin, which are utilized in veterinary medicine. When snorted, cocaine induces blood vessels to constrict, resulting in a reduced blood supply to the nasal septum, causing damage and, in some cases, perforations. One patient described how he lost his entire nose due to cocaine use.

Individuals who use cocaine are urged to heed these warnings as the damage caused to the nose can be permanent.
In other news, according to a new report by the UN Office on Drugs and Crime, global cocaine production has surged to record levels due to a rebound in demand following Covid-19 lockdowns.

The report reveals that coca cultivation rose by 35% between 2020 and 2021, resulting in new trafficking hubs emerging in West and Central Africa.

Additionally, the report indicates that traffickers are increasingly using international postal services to distribute drugs to consumers.

Europe and North America continue to be the largest markets for cocaine, followed by South and Central America and the Caribbean.

Violent clashes broke out in Naples prior to the Champions League match between Napoli and Eintracht Frankfurt on Wednesday.

As a result, five Napoli fans and three Eintracht Frankfurt fans were arrested. Two law enforcement officers were injured during the clashes, and several cars, including at least one police vehicle, were burned.

One German fan sustained stab wounds, and eight others were treated for injuries.

The clashes took place when 470 Eintracht Frankfurt ultra fans, who had been prohibited from entering the Diego Armando Maradona Stadium for the round of 16 second leg between Napoli and Frankfurt, marched in central Naples.

Of the 470, 120 were taken to the police station in Frosinone, where they were processed before being taken to Fiumicino airport in Rome.

The remaining 350 were taken to Salerno before being accompanied to the airport to fly back to Germany.
