A Quebec coroner has recommended changes to legislation aimed at cracking down on pitbull-like dogs.

According to CTV News, the proposed changes were in a report released on Monday in Quebec City regarding the death of Christiane Vadnais last summer.

The woman was found dead after being attacked by what was believed to be a pitbull that had escaped from a nearby home.

One recommendation calls for any injuries caused by a dog to be recorded in a provincial registry.

Egyptian officials arrested more than 22 people this week as part of a campaign to persecute members of the LGBTQ community.

According to BBC News, several people were detained and subjected to violent physical examinations for holding up rainbow flags at a pop concert in Cairo last month.

Although homosexuality is not explicitly illegal under Egyptian law, citizens were arrested for "promoting sexual deviancy" and for "habitual debauchery".

A 19 year old man who attended the concert was arrested and sentenced to 6 years in prison last week.
