According to Turkmen geologists, the huge crater formed in the 1960s but was only lit in the 1980s. The fire has been nicknamed the ‘gateway of hell’ and is a popular tourist attraction in Turkmenistan.

The crater is 70 metres (229 feet) wide and 20 metres (65 feet) deep .

The country’s president, Gurbanguly Berdymukhamedov citing environmental and economic concerns, appeared on state television Saturday, January 8, telling officials to put out the flames at the Darvaza gas crater in the middle of the vast Karakum desert.

There have been plenty attempts to end the fire, including in 2010 when Berdymukhamedov also ordered experts to find a way to put out the flames. But the fire has never stopped burning in decades.

In 2018, the president officially renamed it the Shining of Karakum but now wants it extinguished for good.

“We are losing valuable natural resources for which we could get significant profits and use them for improving the well-being of our people,” the president said in televised remarks.

He instructed officials to “find a solution to extinguish the fire”.

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.

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.
