Superstar footballer, Lionel Messi has spent £3million to build a massive mansion dubbed ‘The Fortress’ in his home city of Rosario in Argentina.

The monster property, built on three adjoining plots of land in a gated private estate on the outskirts of the footballer’s home city of Rosario, has a huge cinema, gym, and underground garage with enough space for 15 cars, according to Argentinian media.

It has between 20 and 25 rooms and a part of the property, which is divided into three and includes an area which is just for guests to stay in, has yet to be finished, the report said.

Messi, 34, reportedly spent Christmas in his new home on a private estate called Kentucky in Funes near Rosario for the first time and ended up having to remain for an extra week after coming down with coronavirus.

Work on the property, said to have cost around £3million in the deflated local currency, began some three years ago.

Argentinian journalist Guido Zaffora, speaking on America TV programme ‘Es por ahi’ which broadcast images of the mega-mansion, said: ‘This is the house in Funes near Rosario where Messi did his quarantine that nobody has ever seen.

‘He stayed in the house for the first time when he came back to Argentina from Paris for Christmas.

‘It’s in the wealthiest part of Rosario in a neighbourhood called Kentucky. They call it The Fortress and you can see why when you take a look at the pictures of it.

‘It’s been built on three separate plots of land although it’s still not finished and a part of it remains uninhabitable.

‘It has between 20 and 25 rooms, a cinema which is big enough to fit both Messi and his wife Antonela Roccuzzo’s families in, a gym, an underground garage with space for 15 cars, a part which is just for guests who have access to the gym and cinema, and a playroom for the children which occupies an entire top floor.’

Local reports say visitors entering the property are greeted by a giant floor-to-ceiling portrait of the back of Lionel Messi wearing the number 10 Argentina shirt in the entrance hall.

On the 17th January, 2022, a conference of witches and wizards was reportedly held in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, with several pictures and reports showing the enchanters display their magical/demonic powers as they fly around in broad daylight.

Several reports suggest the witches and wizards took guests by surprise when they proudly arrive at the venue of the event (organized by them) clad in red and yellow outfit to entertain the audience with their strange powers.

Confirming the story, some media organizations who streamed the event live shared photos that showed the witches and wizards hovering around the air making waves.

However, the enchanters were faced with backlash afterwards, as many blame them for using their powers against the people to serve humanity positively.

Afghans Now Selling Their Kidneys To Survive Under Taliban Rule

Starving families in Afghanistan are not only selling children, but have now been pushed into sell their organs to survive.

Thousands of US and UK troops pulled out of the South Asian country in August after a 20-year-long military mission, paving the way for a violent takeover from the Taliban.

Six months into the new regime, the economy has been ‘paralysed’, and over half a million people have lost their jobs, forcing many to sell their kidneys and even their children.

One family, including three brothers and two sisters, all underwent surgery and sold their organs for around £1,150 each in order to feed their relatives.

‘I cannot see them all lose their lives… at least this way, someone else will feed them.’

Both she and her husband have already sold their kidneys and are now facing the unthinkable choice of which of their eight children to sell.

Harrowing photographs taken in a small village community outside Herat show rows of men and women showing large scars on their abdomens from the painful surgeries. Many of them have had to sell their organs to buyers across the border in Iran in an effort to repay their mounting debts.

One teenage mother, who said she had been operated on about a month ago, said: ‘We have no choice. We do this to feed our children.’

More than half of the country’s estimated 40 million population faces ‘extreme levels of hunger, and nearly nine million of them are at risk of famine’, according to the UN refugee agency, UNHCR.

International funding to Afghanistan has been suspended and billions of dollars of the country’s assets abroad, mostly in the US, were frozen after the militants regained control of the government.

Ramin Behzad, of the International Labour Organization (ILO) for Afghanistan stressed the situation is ‘critical and immediate support for stabilisation and recovery is required’.

He continued: ‘While the priority is to meet immediate humanitarian needs, lasting and inclusive recovery will depend on people and communities having access to decent employment, livelihoods, and basic services.’

ILO also expects that by the middle of this year, job losses will increase to nearly 700,000.
