saco-indonesia.com, Minimarket Alfamart Ahmad Yani yang berlokasi di samping RSUD Kabupaten Tangerang,  Jalan Ahmad Yani, Kota Tangerang , telah dibobol maling, Rabu (29/1) dinihari. Namun pelaku tidak berhasil mencuri uang, hanya menggasak puluhan dus rokok.

Aksi ini telah dinilai warga sangat berani karena lokasinya hanya beberapa ratus meter dari markas Polres Metro Tangerang. Koordinator Alfamart Wilayah Tangerang Supriyadi juga menjelaskan, peristiwa itu juga diketahui ketika salah satu karyawan, Slamet, telah membuka minimarket pukul 08.00 WIB.

Dia juga mendapati kondisi barang-barang sudah dalam keadaan berantakan. “Setelah dicek, ternyata atap di bagian gudang jebol, kemungkinan pelaku masuk lewat situ,” katanya.

Supriyadi juga menjelaskan, berdasarkan rekaman CCTV, pelaku yang berjumlah dua orang telah berhasil membobol toko sekitar pukul 04.55 WIB. Mereka telah menutup wajahnya dengan baju. “Mereka hanya mengambil rokok, kalau uang tidak ada yang hilang karena sudah disetorkan karyawan sebelum toko tutup. Jumlah kerugian masih kita hitung,” katanya.

Kapolsek Tangerang Kompol Sukarna juga menyatakan, pihaknya juga masih harus menyelidiki kasus pencurian yang telah terjadi di Alfamart tersebut. “Kami juga sudah mengamankan CCTV untuk dapat mengembangkan kasus.

KATHMANDU, Nepal — When the dense pillar of smoke from cremations by the Bagmati River was thinning late last week, the bodies were all coming from Gongabu, a common stopover for Nepali migrant workers headed overseas, and they were all of young men.

Hindu custom dictates that funeral pyres should be lighted by the oldest son of the deceased, but these men were too young to have sons, so they were burned by their brothers or fathers. Sukla Lal, a maize farmer, made a 14-hour journey by bus to retrieve the body of his 19-year-old son, who had been on his way to the Persian Gulf to work as a laborer.

“He wanted to live in the countryside, but he was compelled to leave by poverty,” Mr. Lal said, gazing ahead steadily as his son’s remains smoldered. “He told me, ‘You can live on your land, and I will come up with money, and we will have a happy family.’ ”

Weeks will pass before the authorities can give a complete accounting of who died in the April 25 earthquake, but it is already clear that Nepal cannot afford the losses. The countryside was largely stripped of its healthy young men even before the quake, as they migrated in great waves — 1,500 a day by some estimates — to work as laborers in India, Malaysia or one of the gulf nations, leaving many small communities populated only by elderly parents, women and children. Economists say that at some times of the year, one-quarter of Nepal’s population is working outside the country.
