    Very Funny that when a person dies of natural causes the blame is directed at the country that it is a notorious place on earth. In other countries how many disasters are taking place and people are dying like dogs where the news media in those countries do not give much space of trivial matters. Our media in that respect are excellent only there are critics who have nothing between their ears to comment on the topic. Oh my goodness!! we see that some of our readership are unable to grasp any NEWS of an incident and their FOUL MOUTHS always throw out venom of adverse verbosity.
