Tarzan actor Joe Lara among 7 presumed dead in US plane accident



Every one of the seven passengers aboard a plane, including Tarzan actor Joe Lara and his diet guru spouse, are presumed dead after it crashed in a lake close to the US city of Nashville, authorities said.

The independent venture jet crashed at around 11:00 am local time on Saturday, shortly after taking off from the Smyrna, Tennessee airport for Palm Beach, Florida, Rutherford County Fire and Rescue (RCFR) said on Facebook.

The plane went down into Percy Priest Lake, about 12 miles (19 kilometers) south of Nashville.

By Saturday night, operations had switched from search and rescue to recovery efforts, RCFR incident commander Captain Joshua Sanders told a press conference.

“We are no longer trying to (search) for live victims at this point so we’re now recovering however much we can from the accident site,” he said.

On Sunday afternoon, RCFR said on Facebook that recovery operations had discovered “a few components of the aircraft just as human remains” in a debris field about half a mile wide.

Operations would continue until dark and resume Monday morning, RCFR wrote.

Lara played Tarzan in the 1989 television film “Tarzan in Manhattan.” He later starred in the television arrangement “Tarzan: The Epic Adventures,” which ran from 1996-1997.

His better half Gwen Shamblin Lara, whom he married in 2018, was the leader of a Christian weight-loss group called Weigh Down Ministries. She founded the group in 1986, and then in 1999 founded the Remnant Fellowship Church in Brentwood, Tennessee.

She is survived by two children from a previous marriage, according to a statement posted on the church’s website.


New Instagram photos appear to show Dubai ruler’s daughter princess Latifa at shopping centers



New images of Sheikha Latifa, a daughter of the leader of Dubai, have appeared on Instagram in recent days, three months after the BBC aired a video message in which she said she was being held captive in a barricaded villa.

The images, whenever verified, would mark one of the couple of times Latifa has been photographed in public since shortly before she mounted a failed attempt three years ago to escape her father’s control by boarding a yacht to cruise across the Indian Ocean.

From that point forward, Latifa and her supporters claim she has been held against her will on the orders of Sheik Mohammed bin Rashid al-Maktoum, the leader of Dubai and a vice-president of the United Arab Emirates.

The sheik and the UAE categorically deny the accusations.

In April, U.N. rights experts demanded that the United Arab Emirates show “proof of life” for and release Latifa bint Mohammed al-Maktoum, 35, after the video aired in February by the BBC’s investigative news program Panorama.

A source close to campaigners who have lobbied for her release said that the two pictures, posted on the Instagram account of Sioned Taylor, were certified and had been taken recently. Reuters couldn’t independently confirm whether Latifa has freedom of movement.

The UAE foreign ministry referred requests for comment on the Instagram images to the Dubai government’s media office, which didn’t respond when contacted by Reuters. When contacted by Reuters by means of Instagram, Taylor, whose profile identifies her as a teacher at a state-run Dubai school, didn’t respond.

The first image, posted on Taylor’s account on Thursday, shows Latifa outside a cinema inside a Dubai shopping center. An advertisement for a film released in Dubai on May 13 can be found in the background.

The second image, posted on Taylor’s account on Saturday, shows Latifa sitting outside a restaurant with the Dubai Mall in the backdrop.

After the video aired by the BBC in February, the UAE embassy in London issued a statement saying Latifa was being cared for at home by her family and medical professionals and that she would return to “public life at the appropriate time”.
