La 19e édition de la Marche des Partenaires mondiaux a permis de recueillir plus de 3 millions de dollars aujourd'hui et de rassembler des milliers de gens dans plusieurs villes du pays, sous la bannière de la lutte contre la pauvreté dans le monde.

Comments: Did you know that at a race meeting yesterday at Longchamp, France, Hazar Imam's horse Dalakhani won.. Hazar Imam was there, it seemed on His own and He gave a very short interview talking about the Arc race in 3 weeks time, he said he hadn't made His mind up as to which horse would be running etc.. the jockey riding the horse yesterday was Soumillion. Hazar Imam looked happy, wearing a navy suit and was pleased to accept the trophy. Don't have a recording of the race as it caught me on the hop.
