(AP) / 1 October 2014

Agents didn’t know he was armed until a supervisor fired the contractor on the spot and the man turned over his gun, the newspapers said. President Barack Obama rode an elevator this month with an armed security contractor who had three criminal convictions, a violation of Secret Service security protocols, according to published reports.
The latest embarrassment for the Secret Service comes after agency Director Julia Pierson on Tuesday took full responsibility for a Sept. 19 breach of security when a man carrying a knife got into the White House. The Washington Examiner and The Washington Post reported that the elevator incident took place during Obama’s Sept. 16 visit to the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta.
The Post said agents questioned the contractor and discovered his criminal history after he refused to stop video recording the president with a phone camera.
Agents didn’t know he was armed until a supervisor fired the contractor on the spot and the man turned over his gun, the newspapers said.

A Secret Service spokesman confirmed the incident but declined to comment further, citing an ongoing investigation of the event.

MECCA — Their backs hunched, elderly Muslim pilgrims lean on walking sticks as others in wheelchairs nudge their way into Mecca’s Grand Mosque where scores of people are encircling the holy Kaaba.
“Allahu Akbar” (God is greater), they chant in unison.
Most are Asian and African, among the hundreds of thousands of faithful who have descended on Saudi Arabia’s holy city for the annual Haj pilgrimage starting tomorrow.
The Grand Mosque, home of the cube-shaped Kaaba or “House of God” that Muslims believe was built by Abraham 4,000 years ago, was thronged Sunday for prayers and for the year-round minor pilgrimage or umrah.
With the call to prayer the crowds fall silent, many spreading their prayer rugs on roads leading to the mosque.
“I have never before witnessed such a feeling of happiness,” says Aisha, 50, an Algerian pilgrim in a face mask walking hand-in-hand with her son Ahmed.

Stone Town - There’s nothing quite like the feeling of anticipation when going on holiday. The week before, packing and checking passports and, above all, the butterflies leading up to the moment that you step on to the aircraft. Travelling to Zanzibar is no different and when you find yourself ending text messages with smiley pre-holiday emoticons, it’s nothing but a good omen for an exceptional time visiting one of the Indian Ocean’s top value destinations.
South African travellers now comprise just over 10 percent of Zanzibar’s inbound tourism and, it’s not difficult to see why. The island offers a rich cultural experience, it’s steeped in history with African, Arabic and European influences and, best of all, reef protected pristine beaches. Accommodation, meals and adventures are available across all pricing tiers and Mango flies direct between Johannesburg and Zanzibar twice a week.
Visiting Zanzibar is akin to a “choose your own adventure” novella in which activities and decisions to pursue island exploration are legion; however, there are some things no visitor should miss.
Lunchtime, Day 1
Your Mango flight will land just in time for lunch and planning your itinerary should include a pit stop at the Maru Maru hotel’s spectacular rooftop restaurant where you’ll enjoy not only great local hospitality but also a fantastic rooftop view over the historic Stone Town.
