Deep Blue: Divers encounter one of the largest great white sharks
Ramsey (below) was criticised on social media for touching Deep Blue, but she claims that sharks sometimes "seek touch". But generally they're wild animals and apex predators and we want to give them the space they deserve.

Hussein-Suale worked for the Tiger Eye PI organization run by investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas.

According to the statement, the death of Husseini-Suale is the culmination of months of violent threats to members of Tiger Eye, "whose management had asked the world to prevail on Ghanaian authorities to guarantee their safety and allow them carry out their functions".

Last summer, BBC Africa Eye presented a documentary about the corrupt activities of Ghana FA boss, Kwesi Nyantakyi, and other officials of the Federation, as well as arbitrators. Soon after, Federation Internationale de Football Association stripped Mr. Nyantakyi of his position and banned him from the sport for life.

U.S. Service Members Killed in Explosion in Syria; ISIS Claims Responsibility
President Trump surprised his own officials on 19 December when he announced that all U.S. troops would be leaving the country. The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said at least 19 people were wounded or killed.

Husein was shot in the neck and the chest by unknown gunmen on his way home Wednesday night in the capital Accra, police said. No arrests have yet been made in connection with the murder.

Global media watchdog the Committee for the Protection of Journalists called for an immediate investigation and for the authorities "to ensure that threats against the press are taken seriously".

Agyapong, a member of Ghana's ruling New Patriotic Party, can also be heard in the video offering to pay for anyone who attacks Hussein-Suale.

Sean McVay's Girlfriend Veronika Khomyn Is Ready For The NFC Championship
The Saints held off the Philadelphia Eagles 20-14 in the divisional round, and the Rams defeated the Dallas Cowboys 30-22. Similar to the AFC, Sunday's NFC championship game will pit a young gun against a savvy veteran under center.

The professional execution-style slaying of Mr. Hussein-Suale's murder in the aftermath of Mr. Agyapong's disgraceful threats raises serious and credible suspicions about the circumstances of this murder. The act is signalling a unsafe twist to the fight against corruption in Ghana. Our cherished American principles of freedom of the press necessitate a prompt and thorough investigation. Kennedy Agyapong has denied killing Anas' partner.
