Jesus in the City parade back on

Praise Jesus, it looks like the parade is back on.

Sources tell the Toronto Sun that an arrangement has been worked out between organizers of the cancelled Jesus in the City parade and City of Toronto staff.

"We are optimistic the parade is going to happen Sept. 6 as originally scheduled," Dr. Charles McVety, of Canada Christian College, said Thursday.

Nigeria abduction : 276 girls still missing

The number of kidnapped schoolgirls missing in Nigeria has risen to 276, up by more than 30 from a previous estimate, police said, adding that the actual number abducted by Islamic extremists on April 14 was more than 300. 

Police Commissioner Tanko Lawan said the number of girls and young women who have escaped also has risen, to 53. 

He told a news conference Thursday night in Maiduguri, the northeastern capital of Borno state, that the figures keep increasing because students from other schools were brought into one school for final exams last month after all schools in Borno state were shut because of attacks by Islamic extremists. Communications are difficult with the military often cutting cell phone service under a state of emergency and travel made dangerous on roads frequently attacked by the militants.
