first_imgGARDAI have described as ‘despicable’ a crazed burglary at a special needs school in Co Donegal.At least one thief wreaked havoc at the pre-school facility at Ballaghderg, Mountain Top, Letterkenny.The thugs smashed their way into the school – which caters for three and four year old children – and tried to wreck the place. They kicked over furniture and busted open cupboards, before making off with a petty cash box.Gardai have confirmed that forensic officers have examined the scene.Children who attend the school had to be turned away on Friday as the clear up got underway.Gardai say staff were left devastated by the incident, with one saying: “This was so low, so despicable. “We have to deal with burglaries all the time but it takes a particular type of criminal to break into a special needs school and steal money from them because that’s what has happened here – this thief or thieves have taken money from some of the most vulnerable people in our society.”It’s understood Gardai may be linking the theft to a series of break-ins in the past week in the same area.Burglars also targeted offices at Mountain Top quarry on Thursday night/Friday morning.Earlier in the week burglars crashed a car near Kilmacrennan.As Gardai carried out a follow-up operation, the thieves broke into a house in the area and made off with the family car. Anyone who can help Letterkenny Gardai catch those responsible for the school break-in are asked to call the town Garda station on 0749167100.DESPICABLE: OUTRAGE AS BURGLARS RAID SPECIAL NEEDS SCHOOL was last modified: March 10th, 2012 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:DESPICABLE: OUTRAGE AS BURGLARS RAID SPECIAL NEEDS SCHOOLlast_img read more

3rd Test: Pakistan crawl to 169 for two on first day against West Indies

first_imgOpener Azhar Ali was unbeaten on 85 as Pakistan crawled to 169 for two on a rain-affected first day of the series-deciding third Test against West Indies in Dominica on Wednesday.A decision by West Indies captain Jason Holder to send Pakistan in to bat backfired, as the visitors lost only one early wicket, Shan Masood for nine, at Windsor Park in Roseau.The only other wicket to fall was Babar Azam for 55.Younis Khan, in his 118th and final Test, was not out 10 at stumps. Younis received a guard of honour from West Indies players as he walked to the crease and proceeded to make a slow start, facing 44 balls and still waiting for his first boundary.Captain Misbah-ul-Haq is also playing his final Test.Azhar batted all day, facing 219 balls in an obdurate knock, inching within sight of his 14th Test century. He hit two sixes and seven fours.West Indies bowlers toiled diligently, and at least could take some solace from keeping the run-rate low on a day when only 69 overs were possible due to rain.Paceman Alzarri Joseph and off-spinner Roston Chase took one wicket each, while fast bowler Shannon Gabriel was economical, conceded 32 runs in 19 overs.Pakistan made two changes from the team that lost the second Test, bringing in pace bowler Hasan Ali for leg-spinner Shadab Khan, with Masood replacing Ahmed Shehzad.West Indies were unchanged for the match after they pulled off a surprising 106-run victory in the second Test in Barbados following a seven-wicket loss in the first game in Jamaica.advertisementlast_img read more
