Former Qatari Princess found dead at age 45

A former Qatari Princess, Kasia Gallanio, has been found dead in Spain, from an alleged drug overdose, aged 45

According to Spanish newspapers, police officers discovered the body of Kasia Gallanio in a bed, with no signs of physical violence.

She had recently been denied custody of her daughters and was living in Spain.

Gallanio had allegedly been battling problems with alcoholism and depression.

She was also fighting an ugly custody battle with her former husband and Qatari Prince Abdelaziz Khalifa Al Thani.

73-year-old Al-Thani is a former Qatari oil and finance minister and uncle of the Emir of Qatar. His father rules the Gulf state for over 20 years. Al-Thani was exiled in 1995 following a coup, where he relocated to Paris.

Gallanio met the Prince in Paris, and the couple later married and had three daughters together. After separating, the couple endured a decade-long ugly custody battle.

Gallanio relocated to Marbella, Spain where she continued to fight for sole custody of the children.

However, in 2018 she lost custody of the children amid a deteriorating battle with alcohol and depression.

Gallanio’s death comes shortly after she publicly accused Al Thani of sexually abusing one of their three daughters.

According to French Newspapers, one of the daughters filed a complaint accusing her father of forcing her to sleep in his bed and touching her chest and buttocks between the ages of 9 and 15.

Gallanio gave an interview to Women’s World TV saying, ‘It’s time to speak up. It’s time to let people know that it’s not all glamour and perfect.

‘I do also struggle and I go through things, and it’s been difficult. Not just for me hut for the children.’

A police investigation was launched into the serious allegations but the 73-year-old billionaire continues to deny any wrongdoing.

Further investigations are underway as well as an autopsy of Gallanio’s body.

Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home in Palm Beach has been raided by the FBI

In a statement,Trump says the property was ‘under siege’ adding nothing like this has ever happened to a former President of the United States before.

Sources close to the matter say it’s all part of an investigation into the handling of presidential documents, including classified documents, which may have been taken to Florida.

The search is a clear indication authorities are moving in on their January 6 Capitol riot investigation.

Trump says the unannounced raid comes despite him working cooperatively with the relevant law enforcement agencies.

It follows the January 6 Congressional committee probing last year’s attack on the Capitol, gathering evidence in a series of explosive hearings.

Many witnesses have accused Trump of knowingly inciting the incident as part of a deliberate plot to overthrow the 2020 election.

Violence ends with a ceasefire in Gaza

A ceasefire between Israel and Palestinian militants could be the beginning of the end for violence in Gaza

Weapons from both sides were fired minutes before an overnight ceasefire came into effect in Gaza.

The Egypt-brokered deal saw no further violence reported overnight.

At least 44 people have died since the conflict erupted again in May last year.

“Our fight is not with the people of Gaza. Islamic Jihad is an Iranian proxy that wants to destroy the State of Israel and kill innocent Israelis. The head of Islamic Jihad is in Tehran as we speak. We will do whatever it takes to defend our people.”

YAIR Lapid, PRIME MINISTER OF ISRAEL

Meanwhile, the U.S. and United Nations continue to urge both sides to observe the ceasefire and work towards peace.

U.S. President Joe Biden said all parties need “to fully implement [it] and to ensure fuel and humanitarian supplies are flowing into Gaza”.

President Biden is also urging for an investigation into the deaths of civilians.

The leader of the Islamic Jihad’s operations in southern Gaza, Khaled Mansour, was killed over the weekend. Israel believes he is responsible for several acts of terror against Israelis.

“We appreciate the Egyptian efforts that had been exerted to end the Israeli aggression against our people,” a spokesperson for the Palestinian Islamic Jihad said.

However, Israeli officials believe they have “the right to respond strongly” if the ceasefire is violated.
