Location: Hofn, IcelandThis is Wally (arrow)The wandering celebrity walrus has been spotted in Icelandalmost 600 miles from his last known locationHe was previously seen 22 days ago in West Cork, IrelandSome were concerned for his safety(SOUNDBITE) (English) EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR OF SEAL RESCUE IRELAND, MELANIE CROCE, SAYING: “There are less than 22,000 Atlantic walruses left in the world, and their numbers almost completely crashed in the last century due to hunting. It wasn’t until legislation protected them that their numbers started to recover, but now they’ve got the additional pressures of climate change, so Arctic species such as walruses, polar bears and many species of seals rely on sea ice as their habitat. So as sea ice is disappearing due to climate change, they’re losing habitat. So, we can expect to see more and more of these Arctic species becoming vagrants and becoming displaced from their natural habitats, and having to explore a new range. So we should definitely make sure to keep these animals safe when they seek refuge on our shores, and do whatever we can to avoid harassing or stressing them.”Seal Rescue Ireland had identified Wally after comparing pictureswith other seal rescue centers in Britain and Europe

A U.S.-trained Afghan pilot was talking to Reuters on a smuggled cellphone from Tajikistan, where he is being held, when something strange happened - his voice started looping, repeating everything he had just said, word for word. It also came amid growing feelings of impatience and uncertainty among the Afghan pilots and personnel who have been held by the government in Tajikistan since fleeing there on Aug. 15. After flying there with 16 aircraft as their military's ground forces crumbled before the advancing Taliban, the Afghans say they had their phones taken away.
U.S. PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN: “I’m keeping the promise that America will become the arsenal of vaccines…” Under increasing pressure to share America’s COVID-19 vaccine supply with other nations, U.S. President Joe Biden on Wednesday promised to donate an additional 500 million Pfizer/BioNTech shots to poorer countries around the world. That brings the U.S.’s total global commitment to 1.1 billion vaccines so far – more than any other nation. BIDEN: “Put in another way, for every one shot we have administered to date in America, we have now committed to do 3 shots to the rest of the world.” This is the second time a 500-million dose allotment will have been purchased by the Biden administration for donation – the first coming last June. Under the terms of that contract, the U.S. paid Pfizer and BioNTech around $3.5 billion, or $7 a dose. The World Health Organization has criticized wealthier nations like the U.S. for planning booster shots for those fully vaccinated while millions around the world still do not have access to vaccines – something U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres forcefully echoed at this week’s gathering of world leaders in New York. "This is a moral indictment of the state of our world. It is an obscenity. We passed the science test, but we are getting an F in Ethics.” Biden on Wednesday alluded to that criticism by saying that as President of the United States, his first responsibility is to protect the American people. He also called on other wealthy nations to (quote) “deliver on their own vaccine donations and pledges”, as health experts say 5 to 6 billion doses are needed by poorer nations to fight a pandemic that has so far killed nearly 5 million people worldwide.
