Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus of Ethiopia was voted director general of the World Health Organization on Tuesday, the first African ever to head the agency.

After nearly two years of public campaigning, originally by six candidates, the voting took place in a closed-door session in which the health ministers of 186 countries cast their ballots in secret.

Dr. Tedros — a malaria expert who campaigned under his first name — ultimately beat Dr. David Nabarro of Britain after three voting rounds with the final tally was 133 votes to 50, with three abstaining or not voting.

Dr. Sania Nishtar, a Pakistani cardiologist and expert in noncommunicable diseases, was eliminated after receiving 38 votes in the first round.

Dr. Tedros, 52, replaces Dr. Margaret Chan of China, who has held the post for a decade. nytimes.com
Right-wing provocateur and former Breitbart editor Milo Yiannopoulos took to Facebook to react to the ISIS attack on an Ariana Grande concert on Monday night in the U.K. that left 22 dead and dozens more injured.

“Sadly, Ariana Grande is too stupid to wise up and warn her European fans about the real threats to their freedom and their lives. She will remain ferociously pro-immigrant, pro-Islam and anti-America. Makes you wonder whether they bombed to attack her or in solidarity.”

The conservative firebrand has long been a critic of open borders and Islam, arguing it leads to cultural decay and threatens public safety in the West.

For context, in July 2015, Grande was captured on video at a California donut shop saying “I hate America,” where the pop singer was even seen licking the pastries in the shop.

She later had to apologize for the incident. lynx.media
Jeremy Corbyn has delivered a touching video tribute to the people of Manchester following last night’s deadly terror attack.

The Labour leader visited the city to attend a vigil in memory of the victims and in support of their families.

In the message, released this evening, he paid tribute to emergency service workers who responded to the incident in the hours following the explosion.

And he said the British people must now stand together to prevent terrorism dividing communities.

“Murderous hatred visited Manchester Arena last night,” he said. “It will go no further.” mirror.co.uk
According to Toronto police, an 18-year-old woman arranged for an Uber ride on Sunday around 4:00 p.m near Eglinton Avenue East and Dunfield Avenue in the Yonge-Eglinton area.

The passenger told police the driver engaged in inappropriate conversation and made "unwanted advances."

When the woman refused and asked to be let out of the car — a Nissan Altima — police said the Uber driver refused and attempted to forcibly take her to another location.

The woman was able to escape and called police.

Toronto police charged the Uber driver Sukhbaj Singh, who is from Belleville, Ont., with forcible confinement, kidnapping and assault, on Monday.

Singh has been released on bail and is due back in court in early July. cbc.ca
An Australian mum has hit out at trolls who have used a photo of her daughter on Twitter, claiming she's among those missing in the Ariana Grande concert tragedy.

Photographer Rachel Devine was shocked to see the picture of her 12 year old daughter Gem being circulated on the internet, when she was in fact safe at school.

The Melbourne mum has told the Hit Network, she just wants people to know her daughter is safe and well. "I have no idea who stole her image or why."

"My thoughts are with those who are actually searching for loved ones".

While desperate parents in Manchester took to social media to search for missing children, cruel trolls have started creating fake tweets about teens that are not actually missing. hit.com.au
