Seemingly unfazed at being ousted from the Asian Athletics Association, scam-tainted Suresh Kalmadi on Monday said losing the presidential re-election bid to Qatar’s Dahlan Jumaan Al-Hamad has actually given him a chance to work at the “grassroots” level.
“I have no issues today and I congratulate Mr Al-Hamad for being elected as President. I am rather relieved that I will be able to work at the grassroots level in athletics,” Mr. Kalmadi said after losing the vote during the ongoing AAA Congress in Pune.

Nairobi - Thirty-seven poachers have been arrested in Kenya as part of a countrywide operation over the past one week, police said.

A total of 38 kg of ivory, two rifles and 77 rounds of ammunition were also seized, Xinhua reported.

Many wild animals in Kenya such as elephants, lions, wild dogs, leopards, cheetah and hyenas, among others, are endangered today due to poaching.

Kenya's Maasai Mara reserve alone is home to more than 800 lions. Other rare animals are found there.
