An argument between two women in a parking lot in south Los Angeles turned (even more) violent when one of the people involved began throwing fists, which led to one of the ladies jumping into a Toyota RAV4 and taking aim at the other person and another car.

After leaving the parking lot, the driver in the RAV4 struck a fire hydrant causing a rather spectacular geyser of water to shoot out of the ground.

Faced with a dire U.N. warning of a possible genocide in South Sudan, the United States was set this week to finally embrace an arms embargo against the world’s newest country to ratchet down the military might of its warring parties and, potentially, help spare the lives of hundreds of thousands of civilians caught in the crossfire of worsening civil war. The South Sudanese military, which built up its arsenal during three years of civil war, is poised to launch an offensive as the annual dry season — prime time for fighting — resumes in December. On Wednesday, Keith Harper, the U.S. ambassador to the U.N. Human Rights Council, told diplomats in Geneva that South Sudan’s government has mobilized 4,000 troops to carry out attacks against towns in the country’s southern Equatoria provinces, where he said at least 1,901 homes have been destroyed in fighting over the last two months.

By Sarah Marsh and Diego Oré JOVELLANOS, Cuba (Reuters) - Feted by cheering Cubans, a funeral cortege carried the ashes of Fidel Castro out of Havana on Wednesday on a three-day journey to his final resting place in the east of the island where he launched the Cuban Revolution six decades ago.
