            [post_content] => On Monday night at the Antigua Trades and Labour Union rally in Fort James, the night's featured Jamaican dancehall act was arrested following a violent clash. 27-year-old Andre Jay Sutherland, also known as Popcaan, got into an altercation with a police officer on stage. The incident began when a few supporters climbed onto the stage and they were being removed by a police officer.

A footage which captured the entire incident shows the Jamaican artiste intervening saying on the mic not to handle the supporters on stage roughly as he physically separated a patron from the police officer. The officer reacted by strongly pushing Popcaan. In the interim, several other patrons stepped in the way and another officer intervened to calm the police officer. The situation was further escalated when the dancehall artist later responded by directing a diss song to the police officer. The artist then left the stage where it was alleged that a further conflict occurred and bottles were thrown onto the stage by patrons.

A second video shows the artist accusing the police of breaking open his mouth. At the time he was being escorted into  a vehicle by police officers.

You can check out both videos that were shared by concert-goes below.

            [post_content] => The first death linked to the Zika virus in Puerto Rico was revealed to be a 70-year-old man by the US Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the Puerto Rico Department of Health. While the man had passed away earlier in February, the news of the cause of his death was only clarified and disclosed only recently.

According to an epidemiologist at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Dengue Branch in San Juan, Puerto Rico named Tyler Sharp, the elderly man became sick twice. At first he experienced the symptoms for a week and soon recovered, but later fell ill again. Sharp says that on his second trip to the hospital, he returned with signs of a bleeding disorder and was diagnosed with immune thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP). This is a disorder where the human's blood cells called platelets are attacked by its own immune system to cause clotting. The condition or relationship between bleeding and Zika was likened to that of Zika being added to the Guillain-Barre Syndrome, a rare disorder in which the body’s immune system attacks the nerves.

It was also reported by Sharp that the ITP occurs following recovery from the Zika illness. Here antibodies begin to cross-react with other cells in the body. The nerves are attacked when the Guillain-Barre is affecting the body, while in ITP, the antibodies attack platelets.

A total of 638 Zika cases had been recorded in Puerto Rico up to mid-April. A statement published by the CDC says that five patients with suspected cases of the paralyzing nerve disorder Guillain-Barre syndrome, tested positive for the Zika virus.
