Man From India Has Largest Family In The World

Ziona Chana is sixty-seven years old and the proud father of 94 children. Ziona has a mere 39 wives with whom he shares his four-storey, 100-room home in a village located in Mizoram, India.

Ziona has a bedroom of his own, while most of his wives sleep in dormitory-style bedrooms. Ziona likes to keep the younger wives close to him and rotates them nightly.

The older wives are in charge of the chores and keeping things running smoothly. There is very little internal conflict even though there are so many people living in one house.

Ziona believes that he is an extremely lucky man to have such a large family. He says that there is still room for more wives and that he may travel to the United States to find some.

Chana is also reported to have 14 daughters-in-law and 33 grandchildren.

Electrocuted soldier Mitch Hunter to receive face transplant

Electrocuted soldier who suffered horrific face injury saving woman is to receive face transplant.



A soldier who suffered horrific injuries while saving a woman in a car accident is to receive a life changing face transplant.

Mitch Hunter, from Indiana will be only the third person in America to undergo the complex operation.

The 29-year-old army private suffered terrible face injuries after being struck by a 10,000 volt live wire in 2001.

He was a passenger in a car that slammed into a utility pole bringing it down on top of the occupants.


Hunter pushed a live wire off the female driver, but in doing so came into contact with cable volts for five minutes, suffering terrible burns.

Overjoyed: Mr Hunter with his 3 month old son Clayton. He hopes the procedure will transform his life

The massive electric shock also led to him losing his leg and the fingers on one hand.

Hunter,from Speedway, Indiana, has since undergone 57 operations on his face following the accident 10 years ago.

Doctors at a the Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston have now told him he has been chosen for a face transplant.


'I think he’s the perfect patient we can help,' said Dr. Bohdan Pomahac, the hospital’s director of plastic surgery transplantation. 'We’re very excited he’s coming.'


Mitch said he is thrilled with the news of the transplant.

He said:'Right now, I’m pretty content with life but I think it would give me that one extra step to have a better quality of life. I wouldn’t get the weird stares,'

Recalling the accident in 2001, he said he was driving with a friend and his girlfriend when their car hit a utility pole.

'He lost control around a turn and hit a utility pole, which cracked in half,' Hunter said.

'She got out and was hit by a live wire. I jumped out and pushed her away from the wire.'


The woman suffered third-degree burns on her foot but Hunter was jolted with 10,000 volts of electricity, which travelled up his foot, through his body and exited his right hand and face.

'Most of it exited my face,' Hunter said.

'I flat-lined twice on the way to the hospital. They used paddles to shock me back to life.'




Despite the disfiguring injuries Hunter has worked at an Amazon warehouse and celebrated the birth of his son Clayton.

Doctors at the Boston hospital have told Mitch he will be brought in for the face transplant once a suitable donor is found.

Mitchell said his only regret about having the life saving surgery is that someone has to die for him to receive it.


There have been 11 face transplants worldwide since the first in France in 2005.

Who is Ruby Rubacuori?

Karima El Mahroug, a 17-year-old night club dancer who also has a nickname Ruby Rubacuori, has become so popular right now.



Berlusconi's Ruby wants compensation


The Moroccan teenager at the centre of a prostitution scandal that has sent Italian Premier Silvio Berlusconi to trial says she has done nothing wrong and that "all the gold in the world" could not make up for the suffering she has endured.

In an e-mail exchange with The Associated Press on Wednesday and yesterday, the woman nicknamed Ruby lamented that she has been "treated as a prostitute by all the Italian and foreign media".

"I want to be compensated for having been hurt so much and all the gold in the world would not be enough," Ruby, whose real name is Karima el-Mahroug, wrote to the AP in Italian.

Ruby, now 18, requested euro15,000 (US$20,340) for a full TV interview from the AP, saying: "I don't do anything for nothing."


UPDATE: 21 Feb 2011
Dancer in Berlusconi case may grace Vienna ball



The nightclub dancer at the center of a political storm in Italy involving Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi is set to be the star guest at Vienna's famed Opera Ball this year, a spokesman for her host said.

Karima el Mahroug -- an 18-year-old dancer known by her stage name Ruby Rubacuori (Ruby Heartstealer) -- will be the special guest of Vienna construction magnate and social lion Richard Lugner, his spokesman said on Monday.

"We have received an e-mail confirmation from her that she has agreed to the terms. The contract should be drawn up in Italian today," the spokesman said, declining to give any details about how much she will earn for her appearance.

Ruby has become a focus of an investigation into Berlusconi, who has been ordered to stand trial in April on charges of paying an underage girl for sex and abusing his position to get her out of police custody.

Lugner, 78, has had many a beauty on his arm for the glittering Opera Ball, the highlight of Vienna's ball season which is being held on March 3.

Paris Hilton, Dita von Teese and Sophia Loren have been his guests, although Hollywood starlet Lindsay Lohan dropped out last year and actress Bo Derek failed to agree on terms this year.

Ruby has told newspapers that she attended parties at Berlusconi's residence three times and said they were "normal dinners" with lots of food, laughter and jokes.

She denies she had affair with Berlusconi, but says he gave her 7,000 euros ($9,586) since she was in financial trouble.















UPDATE: 21 DEC 2011

Ruby the Heart Stealer becomes a mother at 19

The teenaged Moroccan at the centre of Silvio Berlusconi's trial for sex with an underage prostitute has had a baby fathered by a nightclub owner more than twice her age, Italian media reported on Tuesday.
The baby's father, nightclub boss Luca Risso, said the baby would be named Sofia Aida and added: 'She is well and with her mother.




Dancer Karima El Mahroug , better known by her stage name "Ruby the Heart-Stealer" , was just 17 when the then prime minister allegedly paid to have sex with her last year, a crime punishable by up to three years in prison.

If convicted, the 75-yearold Berlusconi also faces up to 12 years in prison for abuse of power after he allegedly put pressure on the police to have El Mahroug, now 19, released from custody in an unrelated case.
