The previously-forecasted storm could be arriving sooner than expected as a number of Maltese villages have reportedly been pelted by a wave of hailstorms as storm clouds loom over the country.

Local weather page ‘Aġġornament tat-temp’ has reported that Malta will be hit by a number of hailstorms while temperatures have dropped to 11°C.

A video sent to Malta Daily shows Ħamrun’s Victor Tedesco stadium covered in a blanket of white hail, with others reporting the same issue in various villages across Malta.

Man explains causes he ran for during World Cup Qatar match

Man explains causes he ran for during World Cup Qatar match

Taking to social media, the Italian man who ran onto a Work Cup pitch carrying a rainbow-coloured flag and wearing a T-Shirt calling for support for Ukraine and Iranian women explained his motives.

35-year-old Mario Ferri, who calls himself the Falcon, interrupted the Portugal-Uruguay match on Monday donning a Superman shirt with the words pace (peace in Italian) written on it.

Calling himself a ‘modern pirate’, he highlighted the three issues he wanted to specify during his World Cup stunt. One of them was of course FIFA’s banning of the rainbow captain’s armbands.

‘FIFA banned rainbow captain’s armbands and human rights flags in the stands. They blocked everyone, BUT NOT ME’ he explained. ‘Like Robin Hood’. 

He also revealed that he spent a month in Kyiv, Ukraine as a volunteer and saw how much people are suffering. He also said he had plenty of friends from Iran who are women who face disrespect. 

‘Infringing on rules is never a crime if you do it for a good cause’ he said. ‘Thank you all for the messages of love sent from all over the world, Iran and Ukraine.’ 

It was revealed by the Italian foreign ministry that Ferri had been briefly detained following the pitch invasion before being released without any consequences. This isn’t the first time Ferri had done such a stunt.

In 2010, he invaded the World Cup pitch in Abu Dhabi and in 2014 in Brazil. In Brazil, his t-shirt read ‘save the children of the favelas, the slums of Brazilian cities.

“Roderick Cassar showed no emotion during interrogation” says inspector

According to the police inspector, Roderick Cassar showed no emotion when being interrogated.

As court started hearing the case against Roderick Cassar, accused of murdering his wife Bernice, more details about what happened last Tuesday, were explained in court by multiple police officials.

Whilst taking the stand, a police inspector explained that Cassar wanted the police officers to shoot him since he was scared to try and take his own life as he could have survived. 

The police inspector taking the stand said that during the interrogation, the alleged murderer was feeling very tired and was allowed to rest. They stated that Cassar didn’t show emotions when speaking about the victim but “was sorry for what happened to her.” Cassar however, started crying when his children were mentioned.

This hearing is the first of its kind in Maltese criminal history since it is the first alleged femicide since this new law came into place.

The 42-year-old is pleading not guilty to all those charges.
