This greedy puffin was caught on camera stuffing himself with more fish than he could fit in his mouth. Amateur photographer Mike Meysner captured the portly puffin mid-snack as he snapped the birds. He said: ‘The puffin shots were taken on the Farne Islands, a 20 minute boat ride from the Northumberland coast. I’ve taken lots of pictures of puffins, and I know they are all roughly the same size, but this shot did make me laugh because he looks huge.

Let’s take a a look.

(Reuters) – A United Nations human rights body accused Israeli forces on Thursday of mistreating Palestinian children, including by torturing those in custody and using others as human shields.
Palestinian children in the Gaza and the West Bank, captured by Israel in the 1967 war, are routinely denied registration of their birth and access to health care, decent schools and clean water, the U.N. Committee on the Rights of the Child said.
“Palestinian children arrested by (Israeli) military and police are systematically subject to degrading treatment, and often to acts of torture, are interrogated in Hebrew, a language they did not understand, and sign confessions in Hebrew in order to be released,” it said in a report.
