A woman who is currently fighting for her life has lost her entire family to a ghastly auto-crash as they headed home from a vacation in Ocean City, Maryland, USA. Mary Rose’s husband Audie and their daughters Kaitlyn, 20; Danna, 17; and 13-year-old twins Melissa and Allison were killed in the crash and herself, suffered serious injuries and remained hospitalized .

The driver of the pick-up truck lost control and ran across the median onto the northbound side and hit their SUV, pushing it into a ditch.

A GoFundMe page was created to help with medical expenses and funeral expenses. Audie worked for the U.S. Postal Service in the Bronx and came to the United States from the Philipines 30 years ago. Kaitlyn was a nursing student who had just completed her sophomore year at the College of Mount Saint Vincent in the Bronx. Danna was a junior at Teaneck High School, and twins Melissa and Allison attended Thomas Jefferson Middle School in town.

Joel Paul Mogol Ballocanag, her brother wrote via Facebook;

Too many angels were taken from our family yesterday. My four nieces and their dad died instantly in a vehicular accident in Delaware USA. My sister Mary Rose Ballocanag continues to fight for her life and still in a critical condition. 😢

Nigeria Ranks Third On Global Terrorism Index Despite Drop In Deaths – Report

Boko Haram

Nigeria has been ranked as the third most terrorized country in the world according to a 2020 report by the Global Terrorism Index (GTI).

The report which was released on Wednesday, ranked Nigeria third only behind war-torn countries of Afghanistan and Iraq.

According to the GTI report, Nigeria witnessed an increase in Boko Haram attacks in the period under review, witnessing her worst terrorist attack in 2019 in northeastern Borno State, where at least 70 people were killed and 10 others wounded when insurgents attacked at a funeral.

“Over the past year, Boko Haram increased attacks on military targets, with deaths rising from 26 in 2018 to 148 in 2019,” the report said.

However, the report recognized that terror-related incidents in the country fell by 27% in the same period due to a significant reduction in violence attributed to killer herdsmen.

“This reduction occurred despite a small increase in deaths attributed to Boko Haram, which has been the most active terrorist group in the country over the past decade. Deaths from terrorism in Nigeria are now 83 percent lower than at
their peak in 2014.”
