King Charles III under pressure to return 'Ark of Covenant' holy tablet to Ethiopia
King Charles III is under pressure to return a holy tablet that symbolises the Ark of the Covenant back to Ethiopia.The tabot, which is currently housed in Westminster Abbey, was stolen in the Battle of Magdala in 1868, when British troops attacked the forces of Emperor Tewodros II.The Ethiopian Orthodox Church believes a tabot is a holy tablet that symbolically represents the Ark of the Covenant, which is two stone tablets of the Ten Commandments, according to the Book of Exodus.READ MORE: Royal fans spot King Charles III 'hiding' something in new Royal Family portraitGeorge Carey, the former Archbishop of Canterbury from 1991 to 2002, said that he is “astonished and saddened” that Westminster Abbey has so far refused to return the sacred tabot to Ethiopia.Because Westminster Abbey is a Royal Peculiar, which puts it directly under the monarch’s jurisdiction, the return of the tabot to Ethiopia may require the blessing of the monarch, King Charles III, who reigns as the supreme governor of the Church of England.The Ethiopian Church has a strict belief that tabots should only be seen by priests which is why the Abbey added a covering in front of the tabot in 2010, so it is no longer visible behind the altar.An Abbey spokesperson spoke on the issue last month and said that “there are no current plans [for its return], but the future of the tabot is kept under review”.To stay up to date with all the latest news, make sure you sign up to one of our newsletters here.Mr Carey further expressed his view on the subject and admitted that he is disturbed that the Church of England “has not returned a sacred object belonging to another faith and country”.The British Museum has the largest UK collection of tabots, holding 11 of them

READ MORE Evil killer slaughtered adopted family for inheritance and pinned it on 'berserk' sisterThe European Saudi Organization for Human Rights has hit out at the justice system for failing to cut down on the number of tortures and murders, reports The Mirror. It comes as the group revealed that the killings between January and June demonstrates a shocking 80 per cent increase in executions compared to 2021 - with more than during 2020 and 2021 combined.The ESOHR says the lack of transparency in the system meant that they only learned of the killings after they'd taken place.In its report, the group drew attention to a mass beheading of 81 criminals on March 12 - when more than 70 per cent of the victims were killed for their involvement in non-fatal crimes.Of the total number killed, 41 men - over 50 per cent - were slaughtered for taking part in pro-democracy demonstrations.To justify the killings, the Saudi leadership branded the men "terrorists" before putting them before their executioners.The ESOHR reported that at least three of the men provided credible claims they had been tortured and their confessions forced.Out of 120 sent to die, 101 were Saudi nationals, with the other 19 comprising of nine Yemenis, three Egyptians, two Indonesians and a "citizen from each of Ethiopia, Myannmar, Jordan, Palestine and Syria."The vast majority of them were "tried and executed for punitive crimes" despite promises from the Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman to cut down the severity of the sentence for these charges.Forty-one were killed for exercising "basic rights, including participation in demonstrations", the report adds.Another 37 convicts were put to the sword for "unknown" crimes, the report charges, claiming that this
