2. Russia: “Time does not heal” - Beslan mothers mourn victims 14 years after tragedy
Relatives of those that died in the Beslan school massacre gathered at the school in Beslan, Saturday, to commemorate the 14th anniversary of the hostage crisis.
“All this is still here, the smells, the voices. Time does not heal, it’s just a phrase for those … You just learn to live with it whether you want it or not – you live,” said Nadezhda Gurieva, mother of two of the Beslan victims.
Dozens of mourners came to the ruined gymnasium of school Number One, where over 1,000 people were held captive in 2004. The mourners laid flowers and lit candles in memory of the 334 people who died.
On September 1, 2004, militants from the North Caucasus region seized the school and held 1,000 people captive for three days without food or water.
The siege ended on September 3, leaving 334 dead, the youngest victim was only two years old.

6. Facebook admits error in deleting conservative immigration comments after Mollie Tibbetts death
Facebook said Thursday night that it made a mistake in removing a comment by a conservative group that posted about illegal immigration after the death of Iowa college student Mollie Tibbetts.
The admission came hours after William Gheen, head of Americans for Legal Immigration Political Action Committee, said he’d had his post removed and been slapped with a 24-hour ban for posting what Facebook said was 'hate speech.'
Mr. Gheen was surprised by the move because his post had talked about illegal immigration but he didn’t think it crossed any lines.
Facebook now agrees.
7. Germany to increase UNRWA funding following US aid cuts
Berlin has vowed to boost its funding for the UN agency for Palestinian refugees after Washington announced it is cutting planned aid on Friday.
The German government is planning a significant increase in its aid to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNWRA), in attempt to help the agency overcome a funding crisis.
“The loss of this organisation could unleash an uncontrollable chain reaction,” German foreign Minister Heiko Maas said in a letter to EU foreign minister, according to Reuters.
“We are currently preparing to provide an additional amount of significant funds,” he said.
Maas gave no indication of how much the increase will be but said it will not cover the deficit caused by the US cuts.
