STOCKHOLM: Police in Greenland warned people to stay away from western areas of the island as wildfires scorched swathes of scrubland.
In a statement, the police said it “still discourages all traffic — including hiking and hunting — in two areas around Nassuttooq and Amitsorsuaq.”
“The fires are not expected to end within the next few days,” the statement added.
Some of the blazes have been burning since July 31.
Denmark’s meteorological service BMI said the island registered its hottest-ever temperature of 24.8 degrees (77 Fahrenheit) on August 10.

Last year was Greenland’s hottest on record.
The Danish territory has lost about 4,000 gigatons of ice since 1995, British researchers said in June, making ice melt on the huge island the biggest single contributor to rising sea levels.

Indonesia angered after Malaysia shows its flag as Poland’s

JAKARTA, Indonesia: Indonesia has accused the Malaysian organizers of the Southeast Asian Games of negligence after the Indonesian flag was printed upside down in a souvenir guidebook.
The mistake, which makes the red-and-white Indonesian flag resemble Poland’s, has caused anger in Indonesia where “shameonyoumalaysia” has become the most popular hashtag on Twitter.
Indonesia’s Olympic Committee chairman Erick Thohir said the mistake “shows negligence” and demanded the guidebook be withdrawn and a new version printed.
“Friendship is the greatest legacy in sports, but a mistake in presenting a national identity is not justified,” he said.
Indonesia appears to have taken particular offense because the guidebook was distributed to VIPs at Saturday’s opening ceremony in Kuala Lumpur for the 29th Southeast Asian Games and only its flag was shown incorrectly.
Youth and Sports Minister Imam Nahrawi said the error was “very painful.”
The Malaysian Organizing Committee said its chairman and Malaysia’s sports minister would meet with Nahrawi to apologize.
“We very much regret the mistake,” it said in a statement.
Malaysia and Indonesia are both Muslim majority nations and share a similar language but often trade accusations of stealing the other’s food and culture.
The creation of Malaysia when the British empire was dismantled after World War II was bitterly opposed by Indonesia, itself then a new nation emerging from Dutch colonial rule and a short-lived Japanese occupation.
On Twitter, Indonesians said their flag represents the sacrifices of independence heroes and accused Malaysia of either being stupid or deliberately misprinting it.
“You know, this is maybe the reason why our founding father Soekarno wanted to Kick Your Ass,” said one user.
