At least 17 people were killed and hundreds of homes damaged or destroyed when mudslides tore through Montecito early Tuesday. Rainfall rates exceeding 1 inch per hour at times contributed to the damaging mudslides in portions of Southern California.

Voicing concern about China's increasing assertiveness in the Indian sub-continent, Army chief Gen Bipin Rawat warned on Friday that India can not allow its neighbours to drift away from it, and the time has come for the country to shift its focus from western to the northern frontier. "But I don't think he is an educationist that he will give sermons on education", state education minister Altaf Bukhari said. Bukhari said, "There are two flags in the state, we have J&K constitution and India's constitution also. It is too premature to say that everything is going to be in our favour and the USA will do our job", the Army chief said.

He added: "We know how to run our education system". "The constitution of India has given different roles to different people. I will be very happy if they do what they are supposed to do". Let them do their responsibility, I don't think separatism will be anywhere.

He said that J&K has a capable chief minister here who is there to supervise and take review of different departments.

"She is the only one whose sermons we will follow". The basic grassroot problem lies here - the way the education system in government schools in J&K has been corrupted.
