Get Ready to Snap Some Cool Pics for the Pokemon GO AR Photo Contest

Thus the photo of the separatist leader has become a source of great embarrassment for the PDP-BJP alliance in the state. India Today , on the other hand, reports that Shameema Akhter has been suspended with immediate effect in the matter.

The campaign is said to be tied to agents in Russian Federation, and reportedly used services like Facebook and Twitter to exploit racial tensions in the US.

It isn't clear if anyone actually entered the contest, or if any of the promised prizes were awarded, according to CNN.

Are these trainers grey and aqua or pink and white?
If you would like to join Girlsmouth in guessing which colour the trainers are, you can do so by joining their group. She told me that she cannot decide what color these shoes are gray with turquoise laces, or pink with white.

Then you'll be thrilled to know that Niantic just launched a fun Pokémon Go AR Contest which challenges trainers to snap epic AR phones while trying to catch Pokémons in stunning locations.

A Russian-linked account masquerading as a Black Lives Matter activist group called Don't Shoot Us apparently had the "dual goal of galvanizing African Americans to protest and encouraging other Americans to view black activism as a rising threat", CNN reports.
