A blind mystic who predicted the 11 September attacks and the death of Princess Diana has made her 2021 revelations from beyond the grave. Before she died, Baba Vanga, who was known as the Nostradamus of the Balkans, said that during 2021 a cure for cancer will be found, trains will fly and a “strong dragon” will take over the planet. Interpreters believe the “strong dragon” is China.

Airline flies passengers to the wrong city

An airline made a rather fundamental error when it flew passengers to the wrong airport. Nepali carrier Buddha Air departed from Kathmandu's Tribhuvan International Airport and flew to the country's second-biggest city of Pokhara, instead of the flight's intended destination, the southern city of Janakpur. The two cities are about 250 miles apart. Once the airline realised its error it flew the passengers to the correct city.

Israeli receives five shots of vaccine

A man in Israel has claimed he is “feeling fine” after accidentally being injected with five doses of the Pfizer Covid-19 vaccine at once. When Uday Azizi arrived at the Shlomo Group Arena in Tel Aviv, the nurse administering the shot did not realise that each vial of the vaccine contained up to five doses. He said: “Let's be optimistic about the vaccine, the entire situation, and the new year maybe.”
