Some vendors sell food items in unhygienic conditions.

The Municipal Inspection and Control Department of Sharjah Municipality has seized 10 tonnes of food and other items in five inspection raids, according to a statement issued on Sunday.

The head of department Khalifa Bou Ghanem Al Sweedi said that the department has been carrying out many inspection campaigns to control the markets and prevent violations related to fake products and poor quality products at cheap prices.

He added that some of the vendors sell food items on the ground in low prices, which exposes it to dust and other germs that affect the health and make it unsuitable for human consumption. The other items included counterfeit accessories and clothes.

Additionally, he added that 20 kilograms of illegal items were seized, and all necessary procedures were taken against the sellers, emphasizing that items still suitable for consumption would be donated to charitable associations.

3 killed, 6 injured in two explosions in Nepali capital

The nature of the blasts is under investigation.

Three people were killed and six others injured on Sunday in two separate explosions in the Nepali capital, Kathmandu, and police said they suspected a Maoist militant group may have been responsible.

Police official Shyam Lal Gyawali said: “We have three fatalities in two incidents of explosions but the nature of (the) blasts is under investigation.”

One person was killed in an explosion inside a house in the Ghattekulo residential area in the heart of the city.

“I heard a big noise and rushed to the spot to find the walls of a house had developed cracks due to the impact of the blast,” 17-year-old student Govinda Bhandari told Reuters at the site of the first blast.

The second blast took place near a hairdresser’s in the Sukedhara area on the outskirts of the city. Two people were killed in this blast, police said.

All six injured have been rushed to hospitals.

A Reuters photographer at the site of the second blast said it had shattered the door and window panes of the shop and the area had been sealed off by the army.

Gyawali, the police official, said they suspect the blasts may have been the work of a splinter group of former Maoist rebels who are opposed to the government for arresting its supporters.

“A pamphlet from the group has been found at the site of the first blast,” Gyawali said.

The house was used to make improvised or crude explosive devices by activists from the group, he said, adding one of the injured people was a supporter.

An army spokesman said a bomb disposal team had been rushed to nearby Lalitpur area after reports of a suspicious pressure cooker fitted with tape was seen near a bus park.

No one has claimed responsibility for Sunday’s blasts.
