Global-violence vigil

After all the protests, rallies and picking sides, a quiet noon-hour gathering is planned this Tuesday in response to the violence in Gaza and Israel, in Ukraine, Syria, Libya and many other places around the world.

Winnipeg faith groups and human rights organizations are holding a "circle of silent contemplation" Tuesday from 12:15 p.m. to 12:45 p.m.

People of all faiths -- and none -- are invited to gather for half an hour of silence by the statue of Gandhi near the Canadian Museum for Human Rights, a press release said.

"Bring yourself, only, please -- no flags, no signs, just your silence," the release said.


Bank robbery probed

Police are looking for a woman following an afternoon bank robbery in Winnipeg's North End Thursday.

The incident occurred at approximately 3 p.m. at a financial institution in the 500 block of Main Street. According to police, a woman entered the bank and waited in line before approaching the teller. The woman demanded money and told the teller she had a gun. No gun was seen.

The suspect obtained a small amount of cash and fled the scene.

She is described as aboriginal in appearance, 20 to 25 years of age, around 5-5 with a medium build and a light brown hair. She was wearing a blue hoodie, black pants and sandals.

If you have any information about this incident, please contact police at (204) 986-6219 or Crime Stoppers at (204) 786-TIPS (8477).
