By Ed Cropley JOHANNESBURG (Reuters) - Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe's wife Grace whipped two South African women in a Johannesburg hotel room with an electric cable, the mother of one victim said, adding that the attack must be punished. Debbie Engels told Reuters her daughter Gabriella, a 20-year-old model, suffered a gash on her forehead that required eight stitches and another on the back of her head that needed six. Engels did not witness the attack and Reuters has not been able to verify key aspects of the allegations independently.

08/15/2017 04:28 AM Anthony Scaramucci rips Steve Bannon on 'Late Show with Stephen Colbert': 'If it was up to me, he'd be gone'
"The Mooch" just fired a shot at Steve Bannon. Appearing on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Monday night, Trump's very short-lived communications director Anthony Scaramucci accused chief strategist Steve Bannon of leaking and said he'd have him booted from the White House. SEE ALSO: Anthony Scaramucci is coming back, and if his recent tweets are a hint, it's going to be intense "Well if it was up to me, he would be gone," Scaramucci said. "But it's not up to me." TONIGHT: Anthony #TheMooch @Scaramucci is here and he's revealing who he would front-stab if he was still in the White House. #LSSC pic.twitter.com/sEljprdlH1 — The Late Show (@colbertlateshow) August 15, 2017 The revelation came following a discussion about Scaramucci's relationship with ex-White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus, in which Colbert asked about a less-than-flattering photo of the pair. "That's a rough photo," the former White House communications director said. Colbert then quizzed Scaramucci if his job was to "get to rid of [Priebus] and Sean Spicer." "I don't want to say it that way," Scaramucci replied. But Colbert pressed, and asked him to "say it like the Mooch" and to "give me some Mooch," which is now your new way to demand gossip. "So 'The Mooch' of Long Island would say there's no love lost there, I mean, look at the picture, right?" Scaramucci said. "The weird thing about my relationship with Reince is that we were actually pretty good friends when I was a political donor writing checks to the RNC, but once I became part of the administration, or whatever reason, it was a little more adversarial." https://t.co/jw2g9274oL It's not where you've been, it's where you are going. pic.twitter.com/BJjZOv5PSh — Anthony Scaramucci (@Scaramucci) August 14, 2017 Colbert also asked about Trump's reaction to the deadly events in Charlottesville, which has been criticized for not being damning enough against members of the alt-right, neo-Nazis, and other white supremacists. "I know him as a compassionate person … it’s a super-tough job, he made a step to give up which was a luxurious lifestyle," Scaramucci said. "Who cares? We're supposed to feel bad for a guy because he gave up his billion-dollar lifestyle to be the most powerful man in the world?" Colbert responded. And somehow, we got to the topic of Colbert asking why "The Mooch" has never attempted to suck his own, well, you know what — in relation to that infamous quote relating to Bannon. "Eddie Murphy said if he could do that, he would never leave the house," he said. "No, I'm not capable of doing it." WATCH: Drogon could totally sniff Targaryen blood running through Jon Snow's veins

08/15/2017 11:55 PM Scary video shows a bear charging a dog in Alaska
A mama black bear was caught on camera charging a Siberian husky at a campground in Alaska. The recently released clip, from a campground in Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson, Alaska, shows a bear and her three cubs approaching a trailer from the woods on July 5. When the bear spots the dog it delivers a bluff charge, and the bear and husky get into a brief fight off camera. A woman can then be heard yelling at the bear, which returns to its cubs and runs away. Tom Henderson, who uploaded the video earlier this month, said in an email that his wife is the person heard yelling in the clip. Fortunately, the dog was unharmed in the scuffle, despite its screams. Henderson also said that bear sightings are not uncommon in the camp, though they have not had a problem like this before. Unfortunate interactions between humans and wildlife are unfortunately common in the area. In June a man was mauled after brown bear with a sow got defensive. Mashable has reached out to the Alaska Department of Fish and Game for additional information.

08/16/2017 09:39 PM Iran general slams Iraq referendum plan during Erdogan talks
Iran's Armed Forces chief of staff said Wednesday after talks with Turkey's president that a referendum on independence in Iraq's Kurdish region would trigger conflict and negative consequences for the entire region.

08/16/2017 07:22 PM Meet the Nokia 8: Specs, price and release date revealed
On Wednesday evening, HMD Global, the Finnish company that acquired Nokia's feature phone business last year, unveiled the first flagship Android phone under the Nokia brand. The Nokia 8 will go on sale in Europe in September for 599 euros (~$700), but there is no word yet on a US release. Having been the subject of dozens of leaks in the weeks and months leading up to its official unveiling, we already know most of what there is to know about the Nokia 8. HMD's Android phone features a 5.3-inch Quad HD display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage (with microSD support). Reasonable specs for a 2017 flagship, but the design isn't quite as contemporary. HMD's Nokia 8 retains the display bezels that Samsung and LG have eliminated in their latest offerings, as well as a traditional home button with a fingerprint scanner under the display. Rather than attempt to compete with the Galaxy S8 or the LG V30 on design, HMD is instead packing the Nokia 8 with intriguing hardware. For example, the phone feature Zeiss lenses on both the front and back cameras, both of which are 13-megapixel sensors with a dual-camera array on the back. The camera software is mostly untouched, but HMD has added a "bothie" mode which allows both the front and rear cameras to capture photos or videos at the same time. HMD also implemented Nokia's Ozo Audio, which gives users the ability to capture 360-degree audio while recording videos. HMD Global plans to launch the Nokia 8 in four different color options: glossy blue and copper, as well as matte blue and grey. It will be available in Europe next month for 599 euros, joining the Nokia 6, Nokia 5 and Nokia 3. It's still unclear if the Nokia 8 will follow the Nokia 6 to the US.
08/15/2017 03:48 PM Charlottesville: Black protester Deandre Harris ‘beaten with metal poles’ by white supremacists

08/16/2017 10:46 AM 'It still fits': Engagement ring missing for more than a decade turns up on garden carrot
A woman who was resigned to never seeing her beautiful engagement ring ever again - and had bought a smaller one as a replacement - was shocked when her daughter-in-law found it on a carrot. The family had harvested some carrots from their farm in Alberta, Canada, for dinner, and one had grown around the engagement ring, which was then pulled from the ground. Mary Grams, 84, had lost her beloved ring in 2004 while she was in the garden, and thought she would never see it again. "I recognized it right away," she said. Mary Grams, 84, got her missing ring back when her daughter-in-law found it while harvesting carrots on the family farm in Alberta, Canada. Credit: CBC News She thinks she lost it while pulling a large weed from the garden. "We looked high and low on our hands and knees," she told CBC news. "We couldn't find it. I thought for sure either they rototilled it or something happened to it." Mrs Grams has had the ring since 1951, a year before she married her husband, Norman. Mary, 84, says she didn't know if they were kidding or not, but when her granddaughter brought the carrot over - she knew: "It's mine!" #yegpic.twitter.com/Ft7IMUeSMR— Sarah Kraus Global (@SarahNKraus) August 15, 2017 The ring was found by her daughter-in-law, Colleen Daley. "I knew it had to belong to either grandma or my mother-in-law," she said, "because no other women have lived on that farm. "I asked my husband if he recognized the ring. And he said yeah. His mother had lost her engagement ring years ago in the garden and never found it again. And it turned up on this carrot." A few weeks after losing her engagement ring, Mary bought herself this one, much smaller, to replace it. #Camrosepic.twitter.com/sg9WN4y1Pb— Sarah Kraus Global (@SarahNKraus) August 15, 2017 Mrs Grams said she is pleased the ring was found. "I'm going to wear it because it still fits," she said.

It was the go-to vehicle for taxi fleets and police departments, but it's since been replaced.

Another extremist later lunged at Mr Long with a confederate flag and he fought back with a spray can he said he found on the ground, putting a lighter to the nozzle and turning it into a weapon.
