Friday five things!

Friday five things!

It's been an interesting week but as we wrap up and get ready for the weekend, here are five things you need to know as you wake up. 


1. It has been 19 years since the September 11 terrorist attack on New York 

The city will hold its annual ceremony in memory of the nearly 3,000 people who died in the bloodiest terrorist attack in US history, punctuated by a minute's silence at the exact moments that Al-Qaeda jihadists crashed two hijacked aeroplanes into the World Trade Center towers.

2. The Port Elizabeth woman who pointed a gun at Clicks protestors made a brief court appearance

Diane Attwell, the Port Elizabeth woman (Granny) accused of pointing a firearm at protesters outside a Clicks store this week, made a brief court appearance on Thursday morning. The case is postponed to November 6 for further investigation; she faces a charge of pointing a firearm. The commotion was caught on camera outside a Clicks store being vandalised by EFF members.
