Woman facing life in prison after saving ducks leads to two deaths

A Canadian woman is facing life in prison after two people died when she stopped her car to save ducklings along a Quebec highway in 2010.

The jury was unanimous Friday in convicting 25-year-old Emma Czornobaj on two counts of criminal negligence causing death, a charge that carries a maximum life sentence, and two counts of dangerous driving causing death, which comes with a maximum of 14 years in jail.

The Canadian Press reports Andre Roy, 50, was traveling with his 16-year-old daughter, Jessie, on a motorcycle at an estimated 70 mph to 80 mph in a roughly 60 mph zone.

Czornobaj had stopped her car in the left lane of the highway after spotting several ducklings on the median, reports CTV. The self-professed animal lover told the court that she did not see the ducklings' mother anywhere and stopped with intention of taking them home.

Roy's wife was following behind them at a slower speed and avoided injury, USA Today reports. Her husband died in her arms, and her daughter died later in a hospital.

"What we hope is that a clear message is sent to society that we do not stop on the highway for animals," the prosecutor said. "It's not worth it."

Many have differing opinions on the unusual case, in that Czornobaj faces a life sentence though there was no criminal intent tied to her actions. 

Kim Jong Un condemns James Franco, Seth Rogen

North Korean supreme leader Kim Jong Un has condemned actors James Franco and Seth Rogen for their new film which sees their on-screen characters attempt an assassination of North Korea's leader.

The film follows the story of two late night talk show hosts that are given the opportunity to interview Kim Jong Un, but before traveling to the country, they are enlisted by the U.S. government's secret service to kill him.

A spokesperson said the film shows the desperation of the U.S. Government and American society.

Seth Rogen posted a link to the story on Twitter and said: "Apparently Kim Jong Un plans on watching #TheInterview. I hope he likes it!!"

The film is due to be released in October.

Ghana player hands out money to poor in Brazil

A video Ghana midfielder Sulley Muntari is being shared online after he was filmed handing out money to some of the country's poor.

The soccer player was granted special permission by the head coach to fulfill his desire of meeting under privileged people in Brazil.

During a tour, he signed autographs and took pictures with locals and started handing money out to people on the streets.

One report said he was handing out as much as R$350 (Brazilian reals), which is the equivalent of about $160 to each person he encountered.

Eventually, the police asked him to stop.

Ghana grabbed a 2-2 draw with Germany that gives them the chance of qualification from Group G going into their final game with Portugal.
