Authorities investigating fires at historically black Louisiana churches

first_imgLouisiana Office of State Fire Marshal(LAFAYETTE, La.) — Investigators in Louisiana are working to determine whether several fires at historically black churches are connected.There have been four fires in the past two weeks, three of which were in the same county. The other was at a church more than 220 miles away.Both the Louisiana Office of State Fire Marshal and the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms are investigating the fires.Authorities have determined there are suspicious elements in each of the three church fires in St. Landry Parish, not far from the town of Lafayette, according to a statement from the state fire marshal.“There is clearly something happening in this community,” said state fire marshal Marshal “Butch” Browning in a statement.A spokesperson for the marshal’s office noted that investigators have not confirmed connections between any of the fires.There have been no injuries at any of the churches, as each building was unoccupied at the time of the incidents.The first fire was reported on March 26 at St. Mary Baptist Church in Port Barre, in St. Landry Parish.Five days later, at about 7:45 a.m. on Sunday, March 31, a fire was reported at Vivian United Pentecostal Church in the northeast corner of the state. The state fire marshal confirmed in a news release that “after assessing the scene, collecting evidence and gathering witness statements, it was confirmed the fire was intentionally set.”The next fire was reported in St. Landry Parish on April 2, at the Greater Union Baptist Church, which is located about 11 miles from St. Mary Baptist Church.The fourth and final fire was reported on Thursday, April 4, at the Mount Pleasant Baptist Church in Opelousas, about seven miles from the Greater Union Baptist Church.Rev. Gerald Toussaint, the pastor at Mt. Pleasant, told ABC News the damage is “bad,” and “the only thing that’s left is the front of the church, the corridor when you go in” but the rest of the church was severely damaged.“They’re heartbroken,” Toussaint said of his parishioners, “because our church has been around for 145 years.”“They’re pretty heartbroken but they’re faithful. They’re strong,” he said.Toussaint said when the other churches reported fires, he thought to check that his church’s insurance papers were all in order as a precaution.He said the church did not have any security cameras in place, but, “I tell you what: once we rebuild, we’re going to be full of security cameras.”“The church is not that building. The church is the people. The building is the sanctuary where we meet, so if we stay together as a congregation, the church is alive and well. We can rebuild the building as long as we stay together,” he said.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

PCB wants Afridi to retire gracefully from T20

first_imgFORMER Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi’s long stint in international cricket is going to come to an end with the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) reportedly giving the all-rounder a chance to officially announce his retirement from the game, during the country’s T20 series against West Indies in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) later this month.According to various reports, the PCB wants the 36-year-old to retire from the game and will give the cricketer a chance to say farewell in a dignified manner with plans to pick him for the T20 squad that will face the West Indies.Afridi had previously said he would retire from T20 cricket post the ICC T20 World Cup in India but has retracted his statement claiming he still wants to play the shortest format of the game and is available for selection.“Apparently the board and national selectors don’t agree and feel Afridi should retire gracefully although he can continue playing in the foreign leagues and domestic cricket.The plan is to talk to Afridi and explain to him that since the selectors are now building a new T20 squad for the next World T20, there is no place for him.“He will be offered the chance to be included in the Pakistan squad for the T20 series against the West Indies as 16th player and play in the matches,” a source said, as quoted by the Hindu.The 36-year-old had a rocky time during his last stint as captain. He had to step down post Pakistan’s disastrous campaign in the 2016 T20 World Cup and has not represented his country since then.He has also been repeatedly ignored by the selectors, which is headed by another former captain Inzamam-ul-Haq.Afridi has played 27 Test matches, 398 One Day Internationals (ODIs) and 98 T20 Internationals in a career spanning 20 years. He holds the record for the highest number of sixes hit in the 50-over format with 351 runs to his name.(Yahoo Sport)last_img read more
