South Africa’s top detective is to take over the Oscar Pistorius inquiry amid attempted murder accusations against current lead officer Hilton Botha.

Detective Botha was removed pending the result of an investigation into seven counts of attempted murder.

National police commissioner Mangwashi Phiyega announced the change after a third day of testimony at Mr Pistorius’s bail hearing.

Mr Pistorius, 26, denies murdering his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp, 29.

Ms Steenkamp died after being shot three times at Mr Pistorius’ home on 14 February.

‘No embarrassment’

Ms Phiyega said the police had received feedback from state prosecutors about Det Botha only on Wednesday.

The news Hilton Botha is facing reinstated charges of attempted murder has stunned everyone. The immediate question is what impact, if any, the news may have on the prosecution argument that Mr Pistorius should not be allowed bail pending trial.

The timing of the reinstatement of the charges is still unclear and the National Prosecuting Authority says they are in no way connected to the athlete’s murder case. It is curious, though, that the information about Det Botha was not provided to the Pistorius defence team or, apparently, to the prosecution.

Some might argue that Det Botha, who wilted under strenuous cross-examination by the defence, eventually conceding that he had not yet seen any evidence to contradict the athlete’s version of events, has already done enough damage to the prosecution’s call for Mr Pistorius to be denied bail and that the new revelations may not affect the magistrate’s decision significantly.

She described him as an “experienced detective” who was not yet facing any criminal charges.

However, she said she was using her authority as national police chief to ask Lt Gen Vinesh Moonoo to take over the Pistorius case.

Gen Moonoo is reported to be a veteran of some 30 years service. He will work with the police chief in Gauteng province on a case Ms Phiyega said required attention “at a national level”.

She denied that the decision to replace Det Botha was embarrassing for the police.

The BBC’s Pumza Fihlani, in Pretoria, says the claims against Det Botha refer to a 2009 incident in which he and several other officers allegedly opened fired on a minibus taxi carrying seven passengers when the driver apparently disobeyed an order to stop.

‘Poor quality evidence’

In court on Thursday, defence and prosecution lawyers offered their final arguments.

The magistrate is expected to issues his ruling on Mr Pistorius’s bail application on Friday.

Lead defence lawyer Barry Roux asked for the charge of premeditated murder to be downgraded, and said Det Botha’s contradictory evidence on Wednesday had undermined the prosecution’s case.

Mr Roux said: “The poor quality of the evidence offered by investigative officer Botha exposed the disastrous shortcomings of the state’s case.”

The defence counsel said the fact that Mr Pistorius had carried Ms Steenkamp downstairs showed he was desperate to save her life.

On Wednesday, Det Botha told the court that the trajectory of gunshots through the bathroom door indicated that Mr Pistorius, a double amputee, was wearing his prosthetic legs and shot downwards through the door.

This contradicted an earlier account given by Mr Pistorius, who said he was walking on his stumps and grabbed his gun because he felt vulnerable when he thought an intruder had entered his home.

But Det Botha also amended his testimony on the proximity of the witness who he said had heard arguments.

He said police had lost track of ammunition found inside the house, and was also accused of not wearing protective clothing at the crime scene.

The defence also countered police suggestions that testosterone and needles had been found in Mr Pistorius’s bedroom, arguing instead that the substance was a herbal remedy called Testocompasutium co-enzyme.

On Thursday, prosecutor Gerrie Nel told the court that Mr Pistorius should not be granted bail simply because he is famous.

He branded Mr Pistorius as a man “prone to violence” who threatened Ms Steenkamp and eventually killed her.

Oscar Pistorius and Reeva Steenkamp at the Feather Awards on November 4, 2012 in Johannesburg, South Africa

14 February 2013                06:07 ET

South African Paralympic athlete Oscar Pistorius has been arrested over the fatal shooting of his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp at his home, local media say.

Police said they have charged a 26-year-old man with murder, but did not confirm it was Mr Pistorius.

The precise circumstances surrounding the incident are unclear. Reports say he may have mistaken her for a burglar.

Mr Pistorius, 26, is known as the “blade runner”, and was the first double amputee to run in the Olympics.

The suspect is expected to appear at Pretoria Magistrates’ Court later on Thursday, police said.

They also confirmed that a woman had been shot dead at the home of Oscar Pistorius and that she was a friend of the athlete.

Police added that there had been previous incidents at the address and described them as “allegations of a domestic nature”.

“The SA Police Service were just as surprised this morning to hear on the radio that allegations had been made that the deceased had been perceived to be a burglar,” police spokesperson Denise Beuke said, adding that they were not the source of those allegations.

Reeva Steenkamp’s publicist confirmed to the BBC that the 30-year-old model had died.

“Everyone who knew her is in tears. She was an absolute angel, the sweetest, sweetest human being, a kind human being,” Sarit Tomlinson said.

The news that Mr Pistorius may have killed his girlfriend will shock the country as the athlete is regarded as one of South Africa’s national icons, reports the BBC’s Peter Biles from Cape Town.

‘Fatally wounded’

South Africa has one of the highest crime rates in the world and is considered as one of the most violent and unequal societies.

Many here feel that the police are losing the fight against crime and those with money or valuables feel compelled to protect them at any cost. According to the South African Gun Association (SAGA) more than 2.5 million civilians own guns and more than half of them got them for self-defence. Still an estimated 5 million guns are in circulation in the country and many of them are unlicensed.

Gun ownership is strictly regulated and obtaining a licence can take years due to bureaucratic red tape. Along with a series of background checks, the police need to be satisfied that you need a firearm before a licence is granted.

The key role of the police in deciding who can own guns has been criticized by many pro-gun groups and they are lobbying for the government to change its firearm laws, giving the powers to an independent body instead.

The incident is said to have taken place between 04:00 and 05:00 local time (02:00-03:00 GMT).

A police statement said that a 30-year-old woman was “fatally wounded” in the early hours of Thursday morning at a home in the Silverlakes complex in the Boschkop area of the capital.

The woman had been wounded in her head and upper body. Paramedics were at the house when police arrived, but she died at the scene. A 9mm pistol was recovered.

South Africa has among the highest rates of crime in the world and many residents keep weapons to protect themselves against intruders.

Gun ownership is strictly regulated and obtaining a licence can take years due to bureaucratic red tape.

On Tuesday, a bill seeking to give police extra powers to arrest anyone carrying a dangerous weapon in public was tabled before parliament, following a spate of violent strikes and protests last year.

The athlete’s home is in a high-security up-market gated compound on the outskirts of Pretoria.

Oscar Pistorius

  • Won a key legal battle in 2008, when athletics’ governing body, the IAAF, allowed him to compete against able-bodied athletes
  • Made history in London 2012 by becoming the first amputee sprinter to compete in the Olympics
  • Apologised after claiming that his rival, Brazilian Alan Oliveira, was wearing blades that were too long in the 2012 Paralympics 200m final
  • Popularly known as “blade runner”, he was born without a fibula in both legs

Reporters have gathered outside the estate but police have not let anybody inside, local television reports.

Mr Pistorius races wearing carbon fibre prosthetic blades after he was born without a fibula in both legs and had both legs amputated below the knee before his first birthday.

He reached the 400m semi-finals in the London 2012 Olympics. At the Paralympics he won silver in the T44 200m, gold in the 4×100 relay and gold in the T44 400m, setting a Paralympic record.

For years he dominated in his category at successive Paralympic Games.

In 2008 he won a legal battle over his blades with the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) for the right to compete in able-bodied competitions.

Icon of athletics

His achievements have made him a “living legend” and placed him among global sporting royalty, South African broadcaster and commentator Daniel Silke told the BBC.

Sarit Tomlinson, Reeva Steenkamp’s publicist, described her client as “an absolute angel”

“He’s a household name, he’s a hero in the South African sporting context. He is of course someone who has overcome great difficulty and tragedy in his own personal life,” he added.

The South African Sports Confederation and Olympic Committee said it had been inundated with questions over the incident, but was in no position to comment.

Ed Warner, head of UK Athletics also reiterated that little was known about the incident but described the reports as “shocking and very sad,” adding that: “Pistorius is one of the great icons of Paralympic athletics but also of able-bodied athletics too”.

The International Paralympic Committee also declined to comment on the matter as a police investigation was under way.

Sergei Filin - file pic

18 January 2013              05:55 ET

The artistic director of Russia’s Bolshoi Theatre, Sergei Filin, is being treated in a Moscow hospital for severe burns to his face after a masked man threw acid in his face, police say.

The attack happened late on Thursday as Mr Filin, an award-winning ballet star, was walking home in central Moscow.

Doctors are now fighting to save his eyesight and Interfax news agency says he will be sent to a clinic abroad.

A Bolshoi spokesman said Mr Filin, 42, had suffered months of threats.

The BBC’s Steve Rosenberg in Moscow says it is suspected that he was the victim of infighting and rows between different groups of dancers at the Bolshoi.

According to the Bolshoi statement, the assailant shouted to Mr Filin as he was approaching the entrance to his apartment block, then threw acid in Mr Filin’s face.

Mr Filin then got help from a warden keeping watch over nearby cars.

  • 1970 – born in Moscow
  • 1988 – began dancing at Bolshoi
  • Winner of Russian and international awards
  • Performs abroad, including at Covent Garden, London
  • 2008 – dancing career ends
  • March 2011 – takes over as Bolshoi artistic director

The theatre’s executive director, Anatoly Iksanov, told Russian television that Mr Filin was “uncompromising” in his management style.

“If he thought a performer was unready to play a certain role, or incapable of it, he would not let the performer do it,” he said.

Tensions at the Bolshoi over its artistic programme have been widely reported in Russian media.

In 2011 two ballet stars – Natalia Osipova and Ivan Vasiliev – resigned in protest at the Bolshoi’s new repertoire.

At the time of Mr Filin’s appointment the head of the Bolshoi’s ballet troupe, Gennady Yanin, resigned after erotic photographs purporting to be him were posted on a website.

Another celebrated performer, Nikolai Tsiskaridze, sharply criticised Mr Filin in early 2012.

January 13, 2013

A British schoolgirl visiting relatives in a tiny rural village in northern Jamaica was fatally shot when a lone gunman opened fire on a group of family members as they gathered at a roadside shop, officials said Sunday.

Imani Green, 8, of Balham in south London, was standing inside a clapboard grocery store and bar with relatives on Friday evening when a gunman wearing a hoodie shot the child in the head and shoulder before also shooting three adult members of her family.

Police said Sunday the shooting it is believed to be some sort of retaliatory attack, but investigations were ongoing in the normally quiet Red Dirt district of Duncans in Trelawny parish. The roadside business where the shooting occurred is apparently owned by a female relative of the slain girl. There have been no arrests.

The girl died from her injuries while undergoing treatment at a hospital in nearby Falmouth, a historic coastal town that is home to the tourism-dependent island’s newest cruise ship port. The three adults were listed in stable condition.

The British Foreign & Commonwealth Office says it is providing consular assistance to the family and working with authorities in Jamaica.

James Mortimer, a press officer with the British CFO, said Sunday that Imani’s relatives were “very distressed” and “appealing for privacy.” Imani, her mother and sister had planned on visiting relatives in Jamaica until the end of the month.

Janella Parmer, the slain child’s sister, told the BBC that she found her young sibling in a pool of blood after hearing gunshots outside.

“I picked her up off the ground and realized she was still breathing. I flagged down a car and they drove us to hospital. The rest is history,” the BBC quoted Parmer as saying.

Jamaican Justice Minister Peter Bunting said the “senseless killing of a young, innocent child must outrage all well-thinking Jamaicans.”

The Caribbean island’s government said the Falmouth police have launched an “extensive investigation into the matter and will expend every effort to ensure that the perpetrator is apprehended and brought to justice.”

There has been a heavy police presence in Duncans since the shooting.

Sadiq Khan, a British lawmaker who represents the schoolgirl’s south London hometown in the British Parliament, tweeted Sunday that he was “devastated” to learn of the killing.

There were 1,087 slayings last year on the island of some 2.8 million people. It was the lowest number of killings in nine years in Jamaica, but authorities acknowledge the island’s rate of violent crime is still unacceptably high.

Most of Jamaica’s violence takes place in rough slums, with tourist resorts largely crime-free.

Thai Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva arrives at Parliament in Bangkok (May 2011)

6 December 2012            04:34 ET

Former Thai leader Abhisit Vejjajiva faces charges over the death of a taxi driver shot by soldiers during mass protests in Bangkok in 2010.

Mr Abhisit was prime minister when thousands of protesters took to the streets of the capital demanding his government step down.

The protests, which shut down parts of Bangkok for two months, left more than 90 dead, both civilians and soldiers.

Former Deputy PM Suthep Thaugsuban also faces charges, the investigator said.

The decision came after a court ruled that taxi driver Phan Kamkong was killed by Thai soldiers during the 2010 violence.

The two face charges of “giving orders that led to the death of others with intent”, Department of Special Investigation chief Tarit Pengdith told the BBC.

They have been charged under Section 288 of the criminal code, which carries the death penalty or a lengthy jail term.

The two men will be summoned to hear the charges and face questioning on 12 December.

Barricades smashed

The “red-shirt” protesters, many of whom supported ousted leader Thaksin Shinawatra, occupied Bangkok’s financial district in March 2010.

Violence flared in April when police tried to clear them from the area – after which they moved to the city’s commercial heart.

BBC’s Jonathan Head: “Police in charge of the investigation say they have to go to those who issued the orders and that was the prime minister”

They remained there until 19 May when armed government troops moved into the red-shirt camp, smashing through barricades. More than 90 people were killed over the course of the protest.

Elections held in July 2011 were then won by the party led by Yingluck Shinawatra, the sister of the ousted prime minister.

Mr Abhisit, now the leader of the opposition, and his deputy are the first officials – government or military – to face charges over the deaths. Several red-shirt leaders are to be prosecuted on terrorism charges.

The former owner of a “revenge porn” website has been threatened by hacktivist collective Anonymous.

Hunter Moore used to post sexual images of men and women without their permission, along with links to their social networking profiles.

Mr Moore said he will launch a new site soon, telling one technology blog he would also post home addresses.

He later said he was “misquoted”, but Anonymous has said he must be held “accountable for his actions”.

“We will protect anyone who is victimised by abuse of our internet, we will prevent the stalking, rape, and possible murders as by-product of his sites,” the group said in a media release.

It added: “Operation anti-bully. Operation hunt Hunter engaged. We are Anonymous, we are legion, we do not forgive, we do not forget, Hunter Moore, expect us.”

IsAnyoneUp

Mr Moore sold his old website, IsAnyoneUp.com, to an anti-bullying charity in April this year.

Until that point it had gained notoriety for publishing pornographic pictures of men and women from all over the world, sent in by disgruntled ex-boyfriends and girlfriends.

Hunter Moore

So-called “revenge porn” is common online, but Mr Moore’s site angered anti-bullying campaigners further due to the inclusion of links to social networking sites – leaving victims open to large levels of abuse.

People who had made requests for the photographs to be removed were often ridiculed further, and the huge majority of legal threats against Mr Moore were ignored.

“I sold it because I hated what the media turned it into and it could never be what I wanted it to be,” Mr Moore has said about the closed site, which reportedly made him about $20,000 (£12,400; 15,335 euros) a month from advertising revenue.

Speaking about his new venture, which has not yet launched, he said: “This time I am doing it right. I am creating something that will question if you ever want to have kids.

“I am making something very scary but yet fun.”

Suicide

Mr Moore told technology blog Betabeat that the new site would “introduce the mapping stuff so you can stalk people”, but in a subsequent interview with Salon magazine he took back the comment, stating that he made it while “drunk”.

Screenshot from Anonymous video
Anonymous posted a video featuring Amanda Todd, 15, who killed herself after being bullied

Regardless of his intentions, Anonymous published details about Mr Moore online, including the names of family members and his home address.

The group posted a video about their actions to Vimeo. In it, they showed pictures of Amanda Todd – a girl who committed suicide after topless photographs of her were circulated on the internet.

Prior to her death, 15-year-old Miss Todd created a YouTube video describing how she was bullied.

Mr Moore, who has said his new site has had thousands of submissions, has in the past said he holds no guilt over what he does.

“It’s anonymous to me. I don’t know the people – it’s just a little picture on a screen,” he told the BBC in an interview in April.

“If you’re just crying over some [picture] you sent to some boy you just met, no I’m not going to take it down, and no I don’t really care.”

A council leader shot his wife dead before turning the gun on himself, the BBC understands.

Keith Johnson, leader of North Norfolk District Council, and his wife Andrea were found dead at Compit Hills, Cromer, on Sunday afternoon.

Police had been called to the cul-de-sac after “concerns were raised for the safety of a resident”.

Detectives are not looking for anyone else in connection with the deaths of Mr and Mrs Johnson.

Police found the body of Mrs Johnson, 44, in the front garden of a bungalow and Mr Johnson, 58, dead in a back garden nearby.

“Officers can confirm that both the woman and the man are thought to have died from gunshot wounds,” police said in a statement.

‘A lovely couple’

Det Supt Peter Hornby, who is leading the inquiry, said: “Whilst I understand this is a very shocking incident for the neighbours of the two people involved, I can reassure them that, at this stage, we are not looking for anyone else in connection with it.”

Derek Houlston, whose garden backs on to the couple’s home, said: “She was bubbly and really friendly. We used to see her walking her dog.

“He was always very friendly, too, but we saw him doing his paper round – which she got him to do to keep fit – on Saturday and he seemed really depressed.

“I said hello but he just kept his head down and didn’t respond.

“It’s really sad because they seemed like such a lovely couple.”

Mr Johnson, a former mayor of Cromer, became Conservative leader of North Norfolk District Council in May and was also a town councillor.

Mr Johnson and his wife Andrea were found dead at Compit Hills, Cromer, on Sunday

The flag was flying at half-mast at Cromer Town Council’s offices at North Lodge.

Trevor Ivory, a Conservative member of the district council’s cabinet and a friend of the couple, said: “It’s a complete shock. I last saw them both on Thursday evening and they were both very happy and seemed to be enjoying life.

“The words Cromer and Keith Johnson are synonymous. He typified what’s good about the town and the district of North Norfolk.”

Norman Lamb, care minister and Liberal Democrat MP for North Norfolk, said he was “utterly shocked and stunned” by the deaths of the couple.

“I knew them both reasonably well,” he said.

“I always got on very well with Keith. We’re from different parties but he was always very good to deal with.

Flag at half-mast
Mr Johnson was also a Cromer town councillor

“He was a good public servant. It’s just an utterly shocking loss.”

In a statement, North Norfolk Labour Party paid tribute to Mr Johnson.

Chairwoman Denise Burke said: “The death of Keith is a tragedy and a massive loss to Cromer and North Norfolk, too.

“Keith has been a real public servant throughout his life and will be sorely missed by the whole community. He was much respected across the political spectrum.

“Our thoughts are with Keith’s friends and family at this time.”

Police said post-mortem examinations on the couple were taking place and the Joint Norfolk and Suffolk Major Investigation Team was continuing to investigate.

26 November 2012                13:00 ET

Mark Carney has been named as the new governor of the Bank of England by Chancellor George Osborne.

Mr Carney, the governor of the Canadian central bank, will serve for five years and will hold new regulatory powers over banks.

He was a surprise choice for the head of the UK’s central bank and had previously ruled himself out.

The post is seen as one of the most important positions in the stewardship of the UK economy.

Current governor Sir Mervyn King steps down from the post next June.

Sir Mervyn said Mr Carney represented “a new generation of leadership for the Bank of England, and is an outstanding choice to succeed me”.

‘Critical time’

Mr Osborne told Parliament that Mr Carney, 47, would bring the “strong leadership and external experience the Bank needs” and added that the Canadian would apply for British citizenship.

He said Mr Carney was acknowledged as “the outstanding central banker of his generation”.

During Mr Carney’s five years as governor in Canada, Mr Osborne said he was “acknowledged to have weathered the economic storm better than any other major Western economy”.

Mr Carney said he was “honoured to accept this important and demanding role” at a “critical time for the British, European and global economies”.

He will serve in his current post until May next year. Mr Carney said he was “not without ties” to the UK – his wife is a dual national of the UK and Canada.

Shadow chancellor Ed Balls welcomed the incoming governor as a “good choice, good judgement”.

Andrew Tyrie, chairman of the Treasury Select Committee, told the BBC that Mr Carney “ticks all the boxes” but added that his committee would question him on matters such as how he will approach macro-prudential stability and what his views on quantitative easing are.

The British Chambers of Commerce said it hoped that the new governor would “focus relentlessly on supporting business growth across the UK – not just in the Square Mile”.

The CBI said Mr Carney’s “strong track record as the Canadian central bank governor and extensive experience in international financial regulation mean that he is well positioned to guide Britain through challenging economic times”.

Mark Carney

  • Spent 13 years with the investment bank Goldman Sachs
  • Has a British wife
  • Currently serves as chairman of the Financial Stability Board
  • Fluent French speaker
  • Educated at Harvard and Oxford

Pay package

The term for a Bank governor is eight years. But the chancellor told Parliament that Mr Carney indicated he intended to serve for five years and to stand down at the end of June 2018.

“Mr Osborne was keen to get his preferred central governor, because Mr Carney was widely perceived to have all the bits: he is admired by monetary economists, regulators and – allegedly – his staff (or to put it another way, he is an unusual economist and central banker, in that he is seen as a half-decent manager),” the BBC’s business editor Robert Peston said.

The governor of the Bank chairs the monetary policy committee, which has responsibility for setting interest rates in the UK.

Following the government’s decision to scrap the Financial Services Authority and hand some of its responsibilities to the Bank, the governor will also oversee important regulatory powers as well.

Other candidates for the post included Bank deputy governor Paul Tucker, FSA chairman Lord Turner, Sir John Vickers, who led the government’s recent review into breaking up the banks, and Santander bank’s UK chairman Lord Burns.

Mark Carney ruling himself out of the position on HARDtalk in August 2012

Mr Tucker, who has spent most of his career with the Bank, was seen by many as the favourite for the job.

The BBC understands that Mr Carney will be offered a total pay package of about £624,000 a year.

Sir Mervyn’s salary is £305,000 a year, but he receives much more generous pension contributions making his total pay and pension package worth about £519,000.

Mr Osborne also announced the re-appointment of Charlie Bean as Bank of England deputy governor for monetary stability for a further year until the end of June 2014.

from:  http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-20501990

————————————————————————————————

Ages 27 to 54 are by the day of birth.

Mark Carney was born on March 16th, 1965 according to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mark_Carney

So the number 16 rules his ages twenty-seven to fifty-four.

16 = Shocking.  Unprecedented.  Expect the unexpected.  Anything can happen.

Security is tight in Mumbai as large crowds gather for the funeral of Hindu nationalist politician Bal Thackeray.

India’s financial capital has come to a virtual halt, with businesses closed and taxis staying off the streets.

Thackeray, who had been ill for some months and died on Saturday aged 86, was revered by followers as the founder of the right-wing Shiv Sena party

But his fiery rhetoric was blamed for inciting tensions between Hindus and Muslims during the 1993 Mumbai riots.

Some 900 people died in the sectarian bloodshed.

Never convicted

Large numbers of police were deployed in Mumbai to ensure security during Sunday’s funeral and cremation.

Tens of thousands of people reportedly lined the road to Shivaji Park to pay their respects as the body of Thackeray – still sporting his trademark sunglasses and covered in the national flag – was carried by.

A cartoonist by trade, Mr Thackeray formed the Shiv Sena in 1966, partly with a view to keeping South Indian migrants out of Maharashtra state and to halt the spread of Islam.

The BBC’s Yogita Limaye says Mumbai is preparing for a “major funeral”

In 2002 and again in 2008, he called on Hindus to form suicide squads to attack Muslims.

A government inquiry into the riots in Mumbai in 1992 and 1993 blamed Shiv Sena members and several party leaders for taking a major role in organising attacks on Muslims.

Mr Thackeray was never convicted of any offence in connection with the riots.

He denied being anti-Muslim but said he was fiercely opposed to those who were pro-Pakistan.

“Only Marathis [residents of Maharashtra] have the first right over Mumbai,” Mr Thackeray wrote last year in the Shiv Sena newspaper.

He was also instrumental in the renaming of Bombay as Mumbai to break with its colonial past.

Bal Thackeray was born on January 23rd, 1926 according to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bal_Thackeray

Chris Patten, chairman of the BBC Trust, waits to speak on the Andrew Marr political talk show at BBC studios in London November 11, 2012. REUTERS/Jeff Overs/BBC/handout

Sunday November 11, 2012                11:15am EST

Britain’s BBC could be doomed unless it makes radical changes, the head of its governing trust said on Sunday, after its director general quit to take the blame for the airing of false child sex abuse allegations against a former politician.

Chris Patten, chairman of the BBC Trust, said confidence had to be restored if the publicly funded corporation was to withstand pressure from rivals, especially Rupert Murdoch’s media empire, which would try to take advantage of the turmoil.

“If you’re saying, ‘Does the BBC need a thorough structural radical overhaul?’, then absolutely it does, and that is what we will have to do,” Patten, a one-time senior figure in Prime Minister David Cameron’s Conservative Party and the last British governor of Hong Kong, told BBC television.

“The basis for the BBC’s position in this country is the trust that people have in it,” Patten said. “If the BBC loses that, it’s over.”

George Entwistle resigned as director general on Saturday, just two months into the job, to take responsibility for the child sex allegation on the flagship news program Newsnight.

The witness in the report, who says he suffered sexual abuse at a care home in the late 1970s, said on Friday he had misidentified the politician, Alistair McAlpine. Newsnight admitted it had not shown the witness a picture of McAlpine, or approached McAlpine for comment before going to air.

Already under pressure after revelations that a long-time star presenter, the late Jimmy Savile, was a pedophile, Entwistle conceded on the BBC morning news that he had not known – or asked – who the alleged abuser was until the name appeared in social media.

The BBC, celebrating its 90th anniversary, is affectionately known in Britain as “Auntie”, and respected around much of the world.

But with 22,000 staff working at eight national TV channels, 50 radio stations and an extensive Internet operation, critics say it is hampered by a complex and overly bureaucratic and hierarchical management structure.

THOMPSON’S LEGACY

Journalists said this had become worse under Entwistle’s predecessor Mark Thompson, who took over in the wake of the last major crisis to hit the corporation and is set to become chief executive of the New York Times Co on Monday.

In that instance, both director general and chairman were forced out after the BBC was castigated by a public inquiry over a report alleging government impropriety in the fevered build up to war in Iraq, leading to major organizational changes.

One of the BBC’s most prominent figures, Newsnight presenter Jeremy Paxman, said since the Iraq report furor, management had become bloated while cash had been cut from program budgets.

“He (Entwistle) has been brought low by cowards and incompetents,” Paxman said in a statement, echoing a widely-held view that Entwistle was a good man who had been let down by his senior staff.

Prime Minister Cameron appeared ready to give the BBC the benefit of the doubt, believing that “one of the great institutions of this country” could reform and deal with its failings, according to sources in his office.

Patten, who must find a new director general to sort out the mess, agreed that management structures had proved inadequate.

“Apparently decisions about the program went up through every damned layer of BBC management, bureaucracy, legal checks – and still emerged,” he said.

“One of the jokes I made, and actually it wasn’t all that funny, when I came to the BBC … was that there were more senior leaders in the BBC than there were in the Chinese Communist Party.”

Patten ruled out resigning himself but other senior jobs are expected to be on the line, while BBC supporters fear investigative journalism will be scaled back. He said he expected to name Entwistle’s successor in weeks, not months.

Among the immediate challenges are threats of litigation.

McAlpine, a close ally of former prime minister Margaret Thatcher, has indicated he will sue for damages.

Claims for compensation are also likely from victims who say Savile, one of the most recognizable personalities on British television in the 1960s, 70s and 80s, sexually abused them as children, sometimes on BBC premises.

INQUIRIES

Two inquiries are already under way, looking at failures at Newsnight and allegations relating to Savile, both of which could make uncomfortable reading for senior figures.

Police have also launched a major inquiry into Savile’s crimes and victims’ allegations of a high-profile pedophile ring. Detectives said they had arrested their third suspect on Sunday, a man in his 70s from Cambridgeshire in central England.

Funded by an annual license fee levied on all TV viewers, the BBC has long been resented by its commercial rivals, who argue it has an unfair advantage and distorts the market.

Murdoch’s Sun tabloid gleefully reported Entwistle’s departure with the headline “Bye Bye Chump” and Patten said News Corp and others would put the boot in, happy to deflect attention after a phone-hacking scandal put the newspaper industry under intense and painful scrutiny.

He said that “one or two newspapers, Mr. Murdoch’s papers” would love to see the BBC lose its national status, “but I think the great British public doesn’t want to see that happen”.

Murdoch himself was watching from afar.

“BBC getting into deeper mess. After Savile scandal, now prominent news program falsely names senior pol as pedophile,” he wrote on his Twitter website on Saturday.

It is not just the BBC and the likes of Entwistle and Patten who are in the spotlight.

Thompson, whom Entwistle succeeded in mid-September, has also faced questions from staff at the New York Times over whether he is still the right person to take one of the biggest jobs in American newspaper publishing.

Britain’s Murdoch-owned Sunday Times queried how Thompson could have been unaware of claims about Savile during his tenure at the BBC as he had told British lawmakers, saying his lawyers had written to the paper addressing the allegations in early September, while he was still director general.

Former BBC director general George Entwistle speaks to the members of the media after appearing before a Culture and Media Committee hearing at Parliament in London October 23, 2012. REUTERS/Andrew Winning

Saturday November 10, 2012                     5:12pm EST

BBC Director General George Entwistle resigned on Saturday, just two months into the job, after the state-funded broadcaster put out a program denounced by the corporation’s chairman as shoddy journalism.

The BBC, reeling from revelations that one of its former stars was a paedophile, brought further problems on its head when a flagship news program aired a mistaken allegation that a former senior politician sexually abused children.

The BBC had already issued a full apology on Friday, but on Saturday its director general had to admit under questioning from his own journalists that he had not known in advance about the Newsnight report, weeks after being accused of being too hands-off over the previous scandal on the same program.

Accepting Entwistle’s resignation, BBC Trust chairman Lord Patten said: “This is undoubtedly one of the saddest evenings of my public life.

“At the heart of the BBC is its role as a trusted global news organization.

“As the editor-in-chief of that organization, George has very honorably offered us his resignation because of the unacceptable mistakes — the unacceptable shoddy journalism — which has caused us so much controversy.”

Entwistle quit after strong criticism over the Newsnight program.

“I listened to the director general with increasing disbelief,” John Whittingdale, chairman of parliament’s powerful media committee, told Reuters. “The level of failure of management at every level within the BBC, up to and including the director general, is just extraordinary.”

The BBC and its bosses have been under huge pressure since a rival broadcaster carried charges last month that the late Jimmy Savile, one of the most recognizable personalities on British television in the 1970s and 80s, was a prolific sex offender.

EXPOSE WITHDRAWN

Suggestions have surfaced of a paedophile ring inside the broadcaster at the time and a BBC cover-up. To complicate matters for Entwistle, Newsnight pulled a planned expose of Savile shortly after his death last year, and the BBC went ahead with tribute shows.

Having been widely criticized for not broadcasting that expose, which led to its editor stepping aside, Newsnight is now being lambasted for its November 2 report on sexual abuse at children’s care homes in North Wales during the 1970s.

Steve Messham, a witness, told Newsnight that a senior Conservative had raped him when he was a child in one of the homes.

Newsnight did not identify the politician, but the name of Alistair McAlpine, Conservative Party treasurer from 1975 to 1990 during Margaret Thatcher’s premiership, quickly appeared on the Internet and social media sites.

On Friday, McAlpine went public to rigorously deny the allegations and threaten legal action.

Hours later, Messham said he had misidentified McAlpine to Newsnight. The program admitted it had not approached McAlpine for a comment, or shown Messham a picture of McAlpine, before airing the report.

Castigated for what he agreed was a slow response to the Savile disclosures, Entwistle demanded a report on the incident by Sunday and suspended all Newsnight investigations.

The erroneous Newsnight report had been cleared by senior managers and lawyers, and commentators queried why Entwistle had been kept in the dark in the wake of the furore over Savile.

Millions of Afghans have watched a German-born Afghan win the country’s first professional men’s boxing match in the capital Kabul.

Hamid Rahimi beat Tanzanian Said Mbelwa for the World Boxing Organisation Intercontinental middleweight belt.

The match, which would have been banned under Taliban rule, took place amid tight security in the capital.

After the fight, Mr Rahimi described the win as a fresh beginning for the country.

“Today it’s a start,” he said.

“This belt is not mine, this belt is Afghanistan’s, it’s yours. I love you.”

The match was broadcast live, with millions of Afghans across the country reportedly tuning in to watch.

Prominent Afghan figures, including MPs and deputy ministers, watched the fight live at the venue.

Organisers dubbed the bout a “Fight 4 Peace” and said it was being hosted to make a statement of freedom to take part in sport in a country blighted by war and militancy for decades.

The Taliban banned boxing towards the end of their rule.

‘Important message’

Tickets for the fight sold out, attracting interest from fans all over the country. One man told the BBC that he had risked a Taliban attack to make the journey from Logar province with his nine-year-old son.

Sabrina Saqib, a female former MP and professional volleyball player, said Afghanistan was eager for a sign of normal life.

”The world always sees Afghanistan through the window of war. So this game changes that. Although this was a fight, this was a fight for peace. […] This is a huge achievement. Afghanistan has a young and talented generation who seek peace and stability,” she told the BBC.

Mbelwa, 23, fights in the super-middleweight division and has a record of 31 fights with 19 wins, eight losses and four draws.

Rahimi is six years older than his opponent and has won 20 of his 21 fights.

Ahead of the fight, Mbelwa said that he understood that the occasion was “a very special event for Afghanistan and sent a very important message for the whole world” but vowed to fight as hard as any other match once in the ring.

In the event, he was forced to admit defeat in the seventh round after retreating to his corner with a shoulder injury.

28 October 2012                12:28 ET

A Greek journalist has been arrested after publishing a list of about 2,000 Greeks who hold accounts with the HSBC bank in Switzerland.

Kostas Vaxevanis has been charged with breach of privacy.

Mr Vaxevanis says the list he published is the same one that was given by the then French finance minister Christine Lagarde to her Greek counterpart.

Some of those named, said to include many prominent Greeks, are suspected of using the accounts for tax evasion.

The list was originally leaked by an HSBC employee and then handed over by Ms Lagarde to Greek authorities two years ago, according the the AFP news agency.

Since then, successive Greek governments have been accused of trying to cover it up.

“Instead of arresting the tax evaders and the ministers who had the list in their hands, they’re trying to arrest the truth and freedom of the press,” Mr Vaxevanis said.

Police clash with leftist protesters at the city of Heraclion on the island of Crete on October 28
The “Lagarde List” has angered Greeks hit by austerity measures

He is due in court on Monday to answer the charges after publishing in the names in his Hot Doc magazine.

“The prosecutor issued a warrant for Vaxevanis’s arrest because he published a list of names without special permission and violated the law on personal data,” a police official told Reuters.

“There is no proof that the persons or companies included in that list have violated the law. There is no evidence that they violated the law on tax evasion or money laundering.”

The names on the list are said to include politicians, businessmen and others, sparking fury among ordinary Greeks as they are hit by deep austerity measures, says the BBC’s Mark Lowen in Athens.

The issue has reignited claims that tax evasion remains rife in Greece, and that the authorities still are not serious about tackling it, our correspondent adds.

28 September 2012

Parade’s End, the lavish BBC adaptation of Ford Madox Ford’s modernist novel, was supposed to be Benedict Cumberbatch’s show, all duty and headaches as the noble hero, Christopher Tietjens. Then there was the all-star supporting cast: Rebecca Hall as his impossible wife; Rupert Everett as the self-important brother; Rufus Sewell as a vicar with Edwardian Tourette’s.

But it was the bright-eyed newcomer, Adelaide Clemens, 22, who stole the series. As the spirited young Suffragette, Valentine Wannop, she brought to the story a force of youth and hope that shone through the screen. She also had a delightful streak of mischief and the most fetching bob this side of the Great War.

‘I feel like she’s a beacon of energy,’ says Clemens, who speaks in a surprisingly strong Australian accent. ‘She’s beautiful, she’s an eternal optimist who only sees the good in people. I really related to Valentine. She’s not afraid to speak, even if what she has to say might be wrong, which I think is another lovely quality.’

Clearly, before we all fell for Adelaide, Adelaide had to fall for Valentine. In fact, as an Australian actress with only a few horror film roles to put her on the radar in the northern hemisphere, she had to display a Valentine-like spirit to win the part.

Clemens was born in Brisbane, but lived in Japan until she was two. Her British father, who worked in the alcohol industry, later relocated his family to Cognac (so that French was Clemens’ first langauge) and Hong Kong, where she attended the International School. By the time she returned to Australia at the age of 12, she already had a French outlook, an English accent (from her schooling) and an omnivorous appetite for books and theatre. She describes herself as ‘this crazy English chick waltzing around’, making home videos. ‘I never really attach myself to Australia because I’ve moved around so much,’ she says.

After earning her stripes on Australian TV and in mostly low-level Hollywood productions, she was in New Orleans when the Parade’s End audition came up, filming a slasher called No One Lives (‘The title tells you everything you need to know,’ she cringes). She became obsessed with Ford’s dense and difficult novel — ‘I spent every spare moment reading it’ — and determined that Valentine would be her part.

She sent a tape of her work to the director, Susanna White, and the casting director, Karen Lindsay-Stewart, but was told that they were looking for a British actress for the part. ‘I thought it was something to do with the BBC and maybe my accent wasn’t right, so I kept sending off fresh tapes, and kept getting the same response.’ Eventually, she managed to wangle a Skype conversation with White, and, despite the 15-second time lag, managed to infect the director with her enthusiasm — only to be told in the end that, sorry, it simply wasn’t going to work out.

She was undeterred. ‘The night I wrapped up No One Lives, my wonderful agent booked me a ticket to London. I kept reading all this history, playing with British accents and costumes, and on the day of the audition I walked from Euston station to Soho in this period outfit: a long grey skirt, a white silk shirt, very like Valentine, and a black tie.’ She was astonished to find Tom Stoppard, who had adapted the novel, in the audition room. ‘It ended up lasting three hours, but at the end of it, he said, “Well, you have wasted far too much of my time,” and walked out. I didn’t get his sense of humour and went back to the hotel and cried.’

In time, of course, she figured out that three hours of Stoppard’s time is quite a compliment, however eccentrically he takes his leave; nevertheless, the BBC was only able to cast her once it was discovered that, thanks to her British father, she had a British passport.

After all that, filming was a breeze. ‘Ben [Cumberbatch] and I had so much fun, we were just diving in every day. I couldn’t wait to get to bed because I knew I would be performing again the next day,’ she says.

However, she says her research on the Suffragette movement did not make her a feminist. ‘I am for equal rights and I think women are just as capable as men, but I hesitate to call myself a feminist because the definition has been blurred over the past few decades. I think I just need to educate myself more about what a feminist is before I call myself one.’

She says she would never again go to quite the same lengths to win a part as she did with Valentine — though with that triumph in the bag she shouldn’t need to. AfterParade’s End, she headed for the far side of World War One, playing the worldly Catherine Wilson in Baz Luhrmann’s new film of Jazz Age classic The Great Gatsby. ‘From playing a suffragette around 1910 in corsets and not being able to show my ankles, I went to guzzling bottles of champagne and dancing on tables in a flapper outfit. It was just completely outrageous. I felt like I was being stretched out in a completely different way. Baz fills an entire studio lot with his enthusiasm.’

Also soon to be aired are Ray McKinnon’s series Rectify, one of the first productions for the new Sundance TV channel, plus another slasher, Silent Hill 3. But her romance with London is far from over. She loved her time here, channelling Virginia Woolf on walks in Hyde Park, hanging out in Dalston, savouring the romance of the Premier Inn near Euston station. ‘In London, as an actor, it’s amazing that you can spread yourself across four media: radio, TV, film and theatre.’

She hopes to concentrate on the latter: she cut her teeth on Shakespeare and raves about the London theatre scene (she saw Jerusalem three times). One only hopes that our casting directors won’t make her work quite so hard this time.

A severed human head has been found in Regent’s Canal in east London, the Metropolitan Police has said.

The head was found near Kingsland Road, Hackney, by a member of the public at about 13:15 BST on Sunday. It is yet to be identified by police.

In March, the decapitated torso of ex-EastEnders actress Gemma McCluskie was found less than a mile from where the head has been discovered.

The limbless body of Miss McCluskie, 29, was found near Broadway Market.

A police spokesman said: “We can confirm that a head was recovered from Regent’s Canal yesterday afternoon. It is still yet to be identified.”

Miss McCluskie, of Pelter Street, Hackney, played Kerry Skinner in the BBC soap in 2001.

Her brother Tony McCluskie, 35, will stand trial in November charged with her murder.

ht sherlyn chopra kb 120801 wblog Bollywood Actress Likely to Boost Career By Posing in Playboy

August 2nd, 2012              6:00am

Years ago, a Bollywood actress posing naked might have sparked riots (we already know what happens when a Bollywood actress gains weight). But for Sherlyn Chopra, baring all for Playboy and being the first Indian woman to do so could come with benefits.

Playboy founder Hugh Hefner confirmed via Twitter last month that Chopra will appear nude in the November issue of the men’s magazine. Chopra touted her “achievement” to the BBC. She posed at the Playboy mansion in July after writing to Hefner expressing her interest.

“I am thinking of making him my idol because he lives his life on his terms and conditions,” she said. “I also live my life on my terms and conditions.”

It’s a path that’s been trod before. Sunny Leone, a Canadian-born Indian actress, made her name in softcore pornography before transitioning to Bollywood. She debuts in the ironically named Bollywood thriller “Jism 2″ this week.

Pakistani actress Veena Malik was shunned by her country’s film industry after posing semi-nude for India’s FHM magazine. But she managed to find work in India, appearing in and filming eight Bollywood movies this year.

Chopra was a relative unknown before Playboy. She’s appeared in a handful of Bollywood films (the Hindustan Times described her performances as “blink-and-miss”) and participated in the Indian version of “Big Brother” in 2009.

Mumbai Mirror columnist Aseem Chhabra told ABCNews.com that with India’s liberalization and array of new cable news networks looking for gossip, people like Chopra have an opportunity to become household names.

“Every year, there are a couple of starlets who sort of make news by being shocking,” he said. “Film censors are getting more liberal because there have been protests that they randomly cut scenes from. And in the process, these people are rising up.”

But what’s shown on the screen won’t be the stuff displayed at Hef’s legendary mansion. Playboy is banned in India, and kissing on the big screen only became acceptable in the past few years. (Chhabra noted that “there are still many actors and actresses who may not want to kiss.”)

“With India transitioning to the Western world, all of this is happening,” he said. “Of course, compared to Western standards, it’s so little they show.”

27 August 2012               22:55 ET

An Indian company has launched what it claims is the country’s first vagina tightening cream, saying it will make women feel “like a virgin” again. The company says it is about empowering women, but critics say it is doing the opposite. The BBC’s Rajini Vaidyanathan in Mumbai reports.

It is certainly a bold claim. As the music starts playing on the advertisement for the 18 Again cream, a sari-clad woman is singing and dancing.

It is an unusual take on Bollywood.

“I feel like a virgin,” she croons, although the advert makes it clear she is not.

Her shocked in-laws look on, before her husband joins her for some salsa-style dancing.

“Feels like the very first time,” she continues, as she is twirled around.

Cut away to her mother-in-law who begins by responding with a disgusted look on her face, but by the end of the advert even she has been won over, and is seen buying the product online.

Restoring emotions’

This video is designed to market a vaginal “rejuvenation and tightening” product, which was launched this month in India.

The makers of 18 Again, the Mumbai-based pharmaceutical company Ultratech, say it is the first of its kind in India (similar creams are already available in other parts of the world such as the USA), and fills a gap in the market.

Analysis

Ancient India has always been celebrated for its openness and lack of hypocrisy, for its modernity and inclusive attitude; but in one aspect, it has remained rigid: the need for women to be virgins.

Because society was divided into four rather inflexible social groups, straying from or intermingling between these castes was seen as a state worse than death.

So to ensure racial purity, inter- caste marriages were strictly forbidden, with children from such marriages being declared to be illegitimate.

Amorous adventures between the classes, however was freely permitted.

So, there were two kinds of women: one for procreation and one for pleasure and obviously the one who bore your children had to be from the same caste and definitely a virgin.

Chastity, thus, had little to do with waiting for the right man or exploring one’s sexuality and everything to do with preserving racial purity, for only virgins could hope to attain the aspired status of wife.

Considered to be a spiritual obligation, Hindu wedding ceremonies even today centre round the Kanyadaan, which literally translates as the gift of a virgin.

Ultratech’s owner, Rishi Bhatia, says the cream, which is selling for around $44 (£28), contains natural ingredients including gold dust, aloe vera, almond and pomegranate, and has been clinically tested.

“It’s a unique and revolutionary product which also works towards building inner confidence in a woman and boosting her self esteem,” says Mr Bhatia, adding that the goal of the product is to “empower women”.

Mr Bhatia says the product is not claiming to restore a woman’s virginity, but to restore the emotions of being a virgin.

“We are only saying, ‘feel like a virgin’ – it’s a metaphor. It tries to bring back that feeling when a person is 18.”

But the company’s advertising strategy has attracted criticism from some doctors, women’s groups and social media users, who say the product reinforces the widely held view in India that pre-marital sex is something to be frowned upon, a taboo which is even seen as sinful by some.

“This kind of cream is utter nonsense, and could give some women an inferiority complex,” argues Annie Raja from the National Federation of Indian Women, which fights for women’s rights in the country.

Ms Raja says that rather than empower women, the cream will do the opposite, by reaffirming a patriarchal view that is held by many here – the notion that men want all women to be virgins until their wedding night.

“Why should women remain a virgin until marriage? It is a woman’s right to have sexual relations with a man, but society here still says they should not until they are brides.”

“Being a virgin is still prized, and I don’t think attitudes will change in this century,” says Dr Mahinda Watsa, a gynaecologist who writes a popular sexual advice column in the Mumbai Mirror and Bangalore Mirror newspaper.

Dr Watsa has answered more than 30,000 questions from Indians wanting sexual advice, and says a common question from men is how to find out whether their wife is a virgin, or from women who are keen their husband doesn’t know they are not.

“Men still hope they’re marrying a virgin, but more girls in India, at least in the towns and cities, are having sex before.

Khajuraho Temple - sculptural sexual scenes depicted on the Temple wall
Ancient India has always been celebrated for its sexual openness

“Women write to me – and say, what do I do? I’ve had sex with other people but how do I convince people that I’m a virgin?”

Dr Watsa says that in major cities and towns more people are sexually active before marriage – more women working and having independence has led to women having more confidence and interactions with men.

“There is definitely more casual sex and sex before marriage happening in India nowadays,” says Dr Nisreen Nakhoda, a GP who advises on sexual health for the medical website MDhil.

Dr Nakhoda is sceptical about how a cream such as 18 Again can work.

“Tightening the vagina is done by the vaginal muscles so I don’t know how a local cream can do the job,” she says, but believes it has the potential to do well in India because even if practices are changing, attitudes are not catching up as fast, so some people would try anything to cover up any hint of their actions.

“It’s all very under wraps and discreet, no-one really discusses their sex lives with their friends or boyfriends,” says Dr Nakhoda.

She says she has even heard stories of companies which work at night, such as call centres, finding their toilets full of condoms which they cannot flush down, as some couples find it hard to find a place to be alone.

A survey of more than 5,000 people by India Today magazine last year showed that fewer than 1 in 5 (19%) of respondents were open to the idea of pre-marital sex, or live-in relationships, with a quarter of people saying they did not object to sex before marriage, as long as it was not happening in their family.

‘Turmoil’

“We’re brought up being told that having sex with someone is a bit vulgar,” says one 26-year-old virgin.

“When you’re younger it’s hard to have a boyfriend, and most of my friends who did had to go to great lengths to lie to their parents,” adds the girl, who says she hopes to lose her virginity to her husband.

Another 27-year-old girl, who first had sex at the age of 20 and has had three sexual partners, believes a lot of the stigma comes from the idea that a man wants to feel like he owns a woman, adding that the idea that a women who sleeps with multiple partners might be called a “slut” is something all societies have to contend with.

“The Indian mindset is in a state of turmoil,” says Dr Nahkoda,

“The young generation wants to be hip and cool and try out sex before marriage, but they’re still brought up in the traditional set up where it’s taboo to have sex before marriage. This leads to a lot of confusion in many teenagers.

“On one hand you’re supposed to be the traditional demure Indian bride, but on the other hand, you don’t want to have to wait for sex because people are marrying later. Temptations are coming their way and people are no longer resisting,” says Dr Nakhoda.

The introduction of a vagina tightening cream, follows a recent controversy over a vagina skin lightening cream. Both are examples of how traditional values are clashing with newer ones in today’s India.

Annie Raja says these kind of products are all about giving men control over how a woman should behave or look, and that this is outdated and dangerous.

But Ultratech’s Rishi Bhatia says the fuss is unwarranted.

“Men have so many products they can buy to enhance their sexual pleasure, this is just putting sexual enhancement in the hands of women.”

20 August 2012                  14:46 ET

A Somali Olympic athlete has reportedly drowned while attempting to reach Europe on a migrant boat.

Runner Samia Yusuf Omar was trying to cross from Libya to Italy in April when the boat she was travelling in sank, according to Italian media.

The head of Somalia’s National Olympic Committee confirmed to the BBC that she had died but did not say how.

Samia competed in the 200m event at the Beijing Olympics in 2008 despite having almost no formal training.

Although she came in last place, several seconds behind the other competitors, the BBC’s Alan Johnston in Rome says it is extraordinary that she was able to take part at all.

She had grown up and trained in the Somali capital, Mogadishu, facing war, poverty, a complete lack of athletics facilities and prejudice from some quarters against women participating in sports.

According to a profile of Samia on al-Jazeera, she faced death threats and intimidation when she returned to Somalia after the 2008 Olympics, with the Islamist militia al-Shabab controlling parts of the capital.

‘We will not forget’

In October 2010, the runner is reported to have moved to Ethiopia in search of a coach to help her train for the London 2012 Olympics.

What happened between then and her apparent death in the Mediterranean Sea is unclear.

According to al-Jazeera, there were no guarantees that she would be accepted to train at the stadium in Addis Ababa – it was dependent on her running times and permission from the Ethiopian Athletics Federation.

Reports in Italian media suggest she may have been hoping to find a coach in Europe who could help her reach the London Olympics.

Italian newspaper Corriere Della Serra says Samia’s fate only came to light when former Somali Olympic athlete Abdi Bile brought it up at a talk.

He mentioned Mo Farah, the Somalian runner who moved to the United Kingdom aged 12 and triumphed in this year’s Olympics.

“We are happy for Mo – he is our pride,” he said. “But we will not forget Samia.”

09:03 EST                30 July 2012

A teenage boy was arrested today after malicious tweets were sent to Olympic diver Tom Daley, accusing him of letting down his late father by missing out on a medal.

Dorset Police confirmed they had arrested a 17-year-old at a guest house in Weymouth.

A police spokesman said: ‘A 17-year-old man was arrested by Dorset Police officers in the early hours this morning at a guesthouse in the Weymouth area on suspicion of malicious communications.

A 17-year-old has been arrested after malicious tweets were sent to Olympic diver Tom Daley (pictured)

‘He is currently helping police with their inquiries.’

Daley, 18, and his partner Pete Waterfield, 31, finished fourth yesterday in the men’s synchronised 10m platform diving event at London 2012.

Shortly afterwards, Daley retweeted a message from user Rileyy69 which said: ‘You let your dad down i hope you know that.’

Daley responded by tweeting: ‘After giving it my all… you get idiots sending me this…’

Daley’s father Rob died last year from brain cancer.

The Twitter user Reilly_69 made a serious of insulting comments about Daly, including a claim that he would drown the superstar teenager. It is believed this tweet resulted in his arrest.

Speaking after this morning’s ministerial Olympic meeting in Whitehall, Culture Secretary Jeremy Hunt declined to comment on the arrest, but told the BBC: ‘What I noticed was the incredible support both Tom Daley and his partner got from the crowd in the Aquatics Centre.

‘It was an incredible moment and actually very British that we were behind him even when he wasn’t successful.

‘And of course he’s still got the individual dive to come and everyone wishes him very well for that.’

Speaking before the Olympics, Daley revealed his father ‘gave me all the inspiration that I’ve needed’.

He told the BBC: ‘Winning a medal would make all the struggles that I’ve had worthwhile. It’s been my dream since a very young age to compete at an Olympics.

‘I’m doing it for myself and my dad. It was both our dreams from a very young age.

‘I always wanted to do it and Dad was so supportive of everything.

‘It would make it extra special to do it for him.’

Abuse: This shows the original Tweet which was sent to Tom DaleyAbuse: This shows the original Tweet which was sent to Tom Daley

When news of the insensitive tweet spread, Rileyy69 attempted to apologise.

He tweeted: ‘@TomDaley1994 I’m sorry mate i just wanted you to win cause its the olympics I’m just annoyed we didn’t win I’m sorry tom accept my apology.’

He later added: ‘please i don’t want to be hated I’m just sorry you didn’t win i was rooting for you pal to do britain all proud just so upset.’

Dorset Police later confirmed they were investigating the incident.

A spokesman for the force wrote on Twitter: ‘Regarding tweets to @tomdaley1994 – we are aware of the issue and we are actively looking into it.’

Deputy Mayor of the Olympic Village Duncan Goodhew, a gold and bronze medallist in swimming at the Moscow Olympics in 1980, described the behaviour of the Twitter troll as ‘appalling’.

‘It is appalling that people behave that way. Becky Adlington, in fact, suffered probably far worse abuse, as well, if you remember the kerfuffle some years ago,’ he told ITV’s Daybreak.

‘I suppose that social media in one sense is fantastic, but turned the wrong way round it is very, very personal and it destroys people’s lives.

‘So I think people should be much more careful about what they say.’

TWITTER AND THE LAW

The Twitter troll who abused Tom Daley could face a fine of £2,500 if charged and found guilty.

Under the Malicious Communications Act 1988, any ‘indecent or grossly offensive’ message that causes ‘distress or anxiety’ to the recipient can lead to prosecution.

The maximum punishment is a fine not exceeding level four on the standard scale – i.e. no more than £2,500.

Since the 1988 law came into force before the widespread use of the internet, e-mail and social networking, prosecutors have used a number of different laws to charge Twitter trolls.

Student Liam Stacey, who sent a series of racially abusive tweets after footballer Fabrice Muamba collapsed, was charged under the Crime and Disorder Act.

Two men jailed for inciting riots last summer were found guilty under the Serious Crime Act, and Paul Chambers, who joked he would blow Doncaster airport ‘sky high’ was charged under the Communications Act 2003.

After the disappointment of the synchronised final, a leading sports psychologist predicted that Daley would use the memory of his father to spur him on and go for gold in the individual diving event.

Tom Lucas, a leading sports psychologist, said: “I think he’s on a mission to remember his dad and his mission is to win something in the individual – which is his stronger event.

‘Carl Lewis always had a photo of his father tucked down his socks, that was a reminder for him.

‘I think for Tom the memory of his father will be used as a catalyst and a spur.

‘And Tom is a good showman, he’s a supremely confident athlete.’

Mr Lucas said Daley stood more chance of glory in the individual event and top competitors like him would not waver despite a knock-back.

‘To a certain extent that was his weaker event,’ Mr Lucas added. ‘It’s not the winning, it’s how you deal with disaster, how you deal with the setbacks, that separates the good from the great athletes.

‘They were actually leading at one point but went a bit haywire and could not recover.

‘That’s gone now, that’s away. His focus now will be on the individual event.

‘I think this will spur him on. These people don’t give up that easily, he will be even stronger for the individual event now.

‘He will be on the podium. It’s just a question of which colour medal he gets.’

Daley will compete in the individual event on August 11.

The Script had Daley walking proudly to the rostrum and holding a medal aloft.

But his dream of winning Olympic gold in the synchronised diving ended yesterday in despair.

He and Waterfield fluffed their fourth dive – and watched their scores plunge as quickly as they had into the water.

Here’s how it all went wrong on dive number four

Step one: Daley and Waterfield are out of sync                    Step two: Still out of sync as they tuck their knees

Step three: Daley kicks his feet too early                               Step four: They fail to enter the water vertically

 

His mother Debbie, watching the event at the Aquatic Centre in the Olympic Park, threw her head back in disbelief at her son’s final dive. His close companion and team-mate Tonia Couch could barely hide her disappointment.

The normally exuberant Daley, leaning against a wall beneath the diving platform, could only put his hand to his brow. ‘Gutted’ was how he described his emotions later, adding: ‘So sorry everyone.’

Daley’s father Rob was killed by a brain tumour 14 months ago at the age of 40. Last night police confirmed they were investigating the offensive tweets sent to Daley, which included threats to drown him.

The young diver did not lack for – largely female – support yesterday. Synchronised drooling isn’t yet an Olympic event but yesterday’s performance by Team TD would surely have been worthy of gold.

From young mothers who should have known better to teeny schoolgirls hoping to capture an iPhone snapshot, hundreds came in search of a little piece of Tom. Some were even there for the diving.

‘I love the smell of chlorine in the morning,’ said loyal follower Emma Santoni. The 26-year-old chemist has a flat only a few miles from the modest Plymouth semi where Daley lives with his mother Debbie and brothers Will, 16, and Ben, 13, and has watched him at the pool where they both swim.

What exactly was it that she liked about him, I asked. ‘Are you kidding?’ she said. ‘Have you seen him lately?’

And on cue, he appeared. ‘Lay-dees and gentlemen,’ said the loudspeaker announcement. ‘Tom (slight pause)… Daley!’

The crowd erupted. Pensioners waved their flags with great vigour; fathers tried to calm excited teenage daughters.

Daley’s Angels, the groupies who follow him everywhere, came over a bit faint.

And, at this stage, standing in a line-up alongside his synchronised partner Waterfield, our hero still had his kit on.

Even Prince Harry, the other most eligible bachelor in Britain, didn’t rate so many ‘phwoars’ when he went elsewhere on the Olympic trail yesterday.

On the high board, Daley was tanned, discreetly waxed, perfectly groomed and stripped for action. He had said he wanted to ‘do it for Dad’ and, before going into action, he tweeted: ‘After the toughest year of my life, today is the day!’

As it turned out, it wasn’t.

But there’s still another dive, still another day – still another chance at gold at the individual ten metre platform diving event next week.

And, as any true fan could have told you yesterday, there’s still only one Tom Daley.’

27 July 2012                12:59 ET

Thousands of people are arriving at the Olympic Park ahead of the £27m opening ceremony of the London Games.

The three-hour spectacle in the Olympic Stadium will be viewed by a global TV audience of around one billion people.

The Olympic flame is at City Hall ahead of its ceremony appearance, on the last leg of its 70-day nationwide journey.

Details of the ceremony remain a closely-guarded secret. Its artistic director, Danny Boyle, has dedicated it to the 15,000 volunteers taking part.

Mr Boyle has spoken of his “excitement” for the ceremony, as well as feeling “nervousness” for all the volunteers participating in it.

The chairman of London 2012, Lord Coe, told the BBC he was “as excited as hell”.

Crowds of people, many of them dressed up in their nation’s colours, are gathering in large numbers at the Olympic Park. There have been no reports of any major transport problems.

The day of celebration began at 08:12 BST (07:12 GMT) with a mass bell ringing. Big Ben rang for three minutes for the first time since King George VI’s funeral.

When Queen Elizabeth officially opens the London Olympics she will become the only head of state in the world to have opened a summer Olympiad on two occasions.

As Queen of Canada, she declared the Montreal summer games open in 1976.

The Windsors have had a long association with the Olympics. The Queen’s father, King George VI, opened the last London games, in 1948 – and the Queen’s daughter, the Princess Royal, was a member of the British equestrian team at the 1976 games in Montreal.

From Queen Elizabeth’s position as a head of state, to the glamour which attaches to the younger members of the Windsor family, the British royals have been an integral element of the British proposition which secured the 2012 Games for London.

The weather for the ceremony is expected to remain dry, but BBC forecasters say the jet stream is moving southwards and there will be a return to more unsettled and chillier conditions over the next few days.

BBC forecaster Krista Mitchell said Saturday would remain mainly dry in the south, but showers were likely to affect the Games on Sunday.

Prime Minister David Cameron said: “It’s a great opportunity to show the world the best of Britain, a country that’s got an incredibly rich past but also a very exciting future.

“Someone asked me yesterday what face of Britain do we want to put forward – is it Blur or the Beefeaters? – and frankly it’s both.”

‘Wave of excitement’

Mayor of London Boris Johnson told BBC Radio 5 live: “What’s so amazing is just the wave of excitement seems to pass from person to person like some benign form of contagion. Everybody is getting it.”

The Olympic flame arrived at City Hall on the Queen’s rowbarge Gloriana after first weaving through the maze at Hampton Court Palace then being transported down the Thames.

The flame’s trip around the UK ends with the lighting of the cauldron during this evening’s opening ceremony, but the identity of the person who will take on the honour remains a mystery.

Europe’s largest bell will ring inside the Olympic Stadium at 21:00 at the start of the opening ceremony, said to be a quirky take on British life.

Some 15,000 sq m of staging and 12,956 props will be used, and the event will boast a million-watt PA system using more than 500 speakers.

The crowd of about 80,000 will include the Queen and a host of dignitaries and celebrities.

The Queen and Prince Philip are hosting a Buckingham Palace reception for foreign dignitaries and an opening ceremony celebration concert featuring Snow Patrol, Stereophonics, Duran Duran and Paolo Nutini will be held in Hyde Park.

More than 10,000 athletes from 204 nations will take part in the London Olympics, which has taken £9bn of public money to stage.

Ghanian President John Atta Mills

24 July 2012              13:16 ET

Ghana’s President John Atta Mills, who was suffering from throat cancer, has died in the capital, Accra.

A statement from his office said the 68-year-old died a few hours after being taken ill, but did not give details.

“It is with a heavy heart…that we announce the sudden and untimely death of the president of the Republic of Ghana,” the statement said.

Mr Atta Mills has ruled the West African country since 2009.

The BBC’s Sammy Darko, who is at the military hospital in Accra, says Mr Atta Mills’ voice has been degenerating in the last few months.

A presidential aide said the leader had complained of suffering pains on Monday evening and he died on Tuesday afternoon, Reuters reports.

He had returned to Ghana after visiting the US for medical checks, the news agency says.

Mr Atta Mills came to power after narrowly winning against a candidate from the then governing New Patriotic Party, Nana Akufo-Addo, in polls in December 2008.

He was to run for a second term in December.

16 July 2012                00:57 ET

North Korean military chief Ri Yong-ho has been removed from all official posts, according to state media.

As well as being head of the army, he was vice-chairman of the powerful Central Military Commission and held top posts in the ruling Workers’ Party.

In a short statement, the party said Mr Ri had been removed from his posts “because of illness”.

The BBC’s Seoul correspondent Lucy Williamson says there is widespread scepticism about that explanation.

The decision to relieve Mr Ri of his duties came at a meeting of the Workers’ Party Central Committee politburo on Sunday, state-run news agency KCNA said.

The brief report made no mention of a successor.

In Seoul, a spokesman for the Unification Ministry told reporters that the move was “very unusual”.

“It’s quite a rare case that the North promptly and publicly announced early this morning the outcome of a meeting yesterday, on 15 July. We will keep monitoring closely,” Kim Hyung-suk said.

Key figure

Analysis

Ri Yong-ho’s removal from office has taken many people outside North Korea by surprise.

He was seen as having a key role in the recent transition of power in North Korea, from Kim Jong-il to his son, Kim Jong-un.

Few people here are taking the regime’s explanation of “illness” at face value.

The statement posted on North Korea’s state news agency was short and sparse, giving no details of his condition or any indication of his successor as head of the army.

Instead, some analysts are reading his removal as a possible political purge – in order to cement Kim Jong-un’s grip on the military, or perhaps signalling a rift in the team of senior figures which has encircled the young heir during his six months in power.

Mr Ri was made army chief three years ago under Kim Jong-il, the current leader’s father who died in December 2011 after ruling North Korea for almost two decades.

The army chief regularly appeared at state occasions beside Kim Jong-il.

He was also one of seven top officials to accompany the younger Kim as he followed the hearse containing his father’s body at his state funeral.

Mr Ri was widely thought to be a figure in the inner circle of the new leader and instrumental in helping him cement his position.

His removal is now being scrutinised by analysts for signs of the direction in which Kim Jong-un, seen as young and inexperienced, will take the country.

The army and Workers’ Party are the two primary institutions that bolstered the Kim family dynasty, Robert Kelly, a professor at the Pusan National University in South Korea told the BBC.

Ri, 69, appointed army head in 2009

Ri Yong-ho

  • Vice-chairman of the Central Military Commission
  • Top military official after Kim Jong-un
  • Key posts in Worker’s Party made him a top political figure

Kim Jong-un did not serve in either of those two institutions which are ”traditional proving grounds and grooming grounds… for the leadership in the system”.

”So his position is very vulnerable because he does not know the generals and colonels who prop up the state,” said Dr Kelly.

In April North Korea defied international warnings to launch a rocket – an action its neighbours called a long-range missile test that contravened UN resolutions.

South Korea also warned earlier this year that Pyongyang appeared to be in the late stages of preparing for a third nuclear test – a claim North Korea has denied.

International talks aimed at ending North Korea’s nuclear ambitions have been stalled since 2009.

Authorities have placed the former head of France Telecom Didier Lombard under formal investigation for harassment.

The probe relates to the suicides of over 30 employees in 2008 and 2009 when Mr Lombard was in charge.

The launching of a formal investigation is the last stage before charges are brought in the French legal system.

Mr Lombard wrote in Le Monde that restructuring at the company may have upset employees, but challenged the idea it caused the suicides.

Mr Lombard, who was forced to step down from his position in 2010, is not being held in custody, but has had to pay bail of 100,000 euros ($125,000).

When Mr Lombard became chief executive of France Telecom in 2005 he presided over an efficiency drive in which tens of thousands of jobs were cut.

The suicide rate at France Telecom was no higher than the national average, but the deaths attracted huge media attention, the BBC’s David Chazan in Paris reports.

Many of those who killed themselves left notes blaming pressure from management, our correspondent adds.

2 July 2012              01:12 ET

Faction leader Ichiro Ozawa has resigned from the ruling Democratic Party of Japan (DPJ), along with 51 other lawmakers, officials say.

The exodus, which has been expected for some time, still leaves the DPJ with a majority in the lower house of parliament.

But the move is a blow to Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda, with Mr Ozawa expected to form his own party.

Mr Ozawa is opposed to the sales tax hike passed in parliament a week ago.

A party official told reporters that 40 lawmakers from the lower house and 12 from the upper chamber of parliament had submitted resignation letters.

If 54 or more lower house lawmakers follow Mr Ozawa, Mr Noda would lose his majority and could be forced to call early polls.

‘The destroyer’

The prime minister says doubling sales tax from 5% to 10% by 2015 is key to cutting Japan’s high public debt and funding rising welfare costs.

The tax hike has seen bitter disagreement and gridlock amongst Japan’s lawmakers.

Mr Ozawa, who led the charge against Mr Noda over the tax hike, is a veteran politician leading the biggest faction within the DPJ.

He says Mr Noda has broken the party’s election promises.

This is not the first time that Mr Ozawa, dubbed “the destroyer”, has torn apart a ruling party, says the BBC’s Mariko Oi in Tokyo. In 1993, he left the Liberal Democratic Party to form his own party.

But voters do not appear to be impressed, says our correspondent, with the latest opinion poll saying only 15% of them support his move.

28 June 2012              05:08 ET

The former chief executive of Barclays Martin Taylor has told the BBC that the bank has engaged in “systematic dishonesty”.

It comes after Barclays was fined £290m ($450m) for trying to manipulate interest rates.

Mr Taylor said that Barclays’ deception looks like a deliberate strategy as it had been going on for years.

The Chancellor, George Osborne, will make a statement on Barclays in the House of Commons later on Thursday.

Other banks are also being probed.

Tracey McDermott, director of enforcement at the FSA, which imposed fines alongside the US financial regulator, told the BBC: “We have a number of investigations that are ongoing.

“Obviously we need to look at each case on its own particular facts but the initial indications are that Barclays was not the only firm that was involved in this.”

undefined

Lord Myners: This is the most corrosive behaviour I have seen in a major UK financial institution in my career

The US Department of Justice also said criminal investigations into “other financial institutions and individuals” were ongoing.

Other big names believed to be under investigation include Citigroup, JP Morgan, Deutsche Bank, HSBC and Royal Bank of Scotland.

The scandal is putting pressure on Mr Diamond.

Mr Taylor, who was chief executive of Barclays from 1994 to 1998, said: “It’s hard to believe that a policy which seems to be so systematic was not known by people at or very near the top of the bank.”

Former City minister Lord Myners told the BBC that the people at the top should take responsibility.

The Liberal Democrat peer, Lord Oakeshott, said that if Mr Diamond had any shame, he would resign.

Barclays has said its actions “fell well short of standards”.

In response, chief executive Bob Diamond and three other top executives at the bank are to give up their bonuses this year.

Investigators say that Barclays’ traders lied to make the bank look more secure during the financial crisis and, sometimes – working with traders at other banks – to make a profit.

Mortgage deals

Barclays has admitted that a group of traders lied about what it was costing the bank to borrow.

Analysis

Now, why does this matter?

It matters because lots and lots of deals involving clients of Barclays used the interest rate into which Barclays was feeding this information, about its own borrowing costs, to determine the profit and loss on their own deals.

It’s quite hard to think of behaviour by a bank as shocking as this: not telling the truth about what it is costing you to borrow, that then becomes a benchmark for pricing other deals.

The statement from the US regulator, which levied a big chunk of the fine, talks about how Barclays was working with other banks to try to fix this interest rate.

This of course implies that Barclays is simply the first bank to settle and we will see fines and punishments against some of the other big banks of the world.

Barclays’ misconduct relates to the daily setting of the London Interbank Offered Rate (Libor) and the Euro Interbank Offered Rate (Euribor).

These are two of the most important interest rates in the global financial markets and directly influence the value of trillions of dollars of financial deals between banks and other institutions.

They can also affect lending rates to the public, for instance with some mortgage deals.

It is not yet clear whether Barclays staff actually succeeded in manipulating the interest rates to the bank’s advantage and therefore whether it had any impact on borrowers.

While the FSA said only that the Barclays employees had attempted to do so, the US Department of Justice said that on some occasions they did affect the Libor and Euribor rates.

Former City minister Lord Myners told the BBC that the people at the top should take responsibility for “a complete cultural failure”.

He said the behaviour of Barclays staff was the worst he had seen.

“This is the most corrosive failure of moral behaviour I have seen in a major UK financial institution in my career,” he said.

“I think fines and public criticism will not stop these behaviours. These behaviours will not stop until the people perpetrating it or responsible for overseeing them face the prospect of criminal charges and the prospect of going to jail.”

The former Liberal Democrat Treasury spokesman, Lord Oakeshott said: “If Bob Diamond had a scintilla of shame he would resign.”

“If Barclays’ board had an inch of backbone between them they would sack him,” he said.

Andrew Tyrie, chairman of the Commons treasury committee, said it would summon Mr Diamond to account for what had happened.

“Banks were clearly acting in concert. I fear it’s not going to be the end of the story, that we are going to find that other banks have been involved,” he said.

‘Accepted culture’

The fine imposed on Barclays is part of an international investigation into the setting of interbank rates between 2005 and 2009.

Each day the British Bankers’ Association (BBA) and the European Banking Association publish the the Libor and Euribor rates by taking an average of the estimated rates submitted to them by leading banks.

Tracey McDermott, of the FSA, says the misconduct is some of the most serious the regulator has ever seen

Between 2005 and 2008, the Barclays staff who submitted estimates of their own interbank lending rates were frequently lobbied by its derivatives traders to put in figures which would benefit their trading positions, in order to produce a profit for the bank.

And between 2007 and 2009, during the height of the banking crisis, the staff put in artificially low figures, to avoid the suspicion that Barclays was under financial stress and thus having to borrow at noticeably higher rates than its competitors.

The FSA pointed out that Barclays traders were quite open about their routine attempts to lobby their colleagues who submitted the bank’s estimate of its borrowing costs to the BBA.

It was particularly concerned because it appeared to be “accepted culture” among some staff.

“Requests to Barclays’ submitters were made verbally and a large amount of email and instant message evidence consisting of derivatives traders’ requests also exists,” the FSA said.

In one instance, a trader recounted a conversation in which he had “begged” the submitter to put in a lower Libor figure.

I owe you big time… I’m opening a bottle of Bollinger”

Exchange involving Barclays staff

“I’m like, dude, you’re killing us,” he said. His manager replied, “just tell him to… put it low”.

In turn, the staff submitting the data would respond to the traders’ requests.

“For you…anything,” said one. “Done… for you big boy,” said another.

And: “I owe you big time… I’m opening a bottle of Bollinger.”

20 June 2012                 18:55 ET

A senior Ukrainian Olympic official filmed by the BBC offering 2012 tickets for cash has been expelled by his country’s National Olympic Committee.

Volodymyr Gerashchenko, general secretary of the Ukrainian NOC, told a reporter posing as a UK tout he would have as many as 100 tickets to sell.

A commission established by the NOC found he had “grossly violated the basic principles of Olympism”.

Mr Gerashchenko resigned last month after the report was broadcast on TV.

A statement on the NOC website said Mr Gerashchenko would be excluded from the organisation for “violation of membership obligations”.

Acting on a tip-off, the undercover BBC London reporter posed as an unauthorised ticket dealer from the UK.

He spoke to Mr Gerashchenko who confirmed he would be prepared to sell tickets.

Mr Gerashchenko had been head of Ukraine’s National Olympic Committee since 1997.

It is a criminal offence, punishable by fines of up to £20,000, to sell London 2012 tickets to touts.

A Saudi man has been beheaded on charges of sorcery and witchcraft, the state news agency SPA says.

The man, Muree bin Ali bin Issa al-Asiri, was found in possession of books and talismans, SPA said. He had also admitted adultery with two women, it said.

The execution took place in the southern Najran province, SPA reported.

Human rights groups have repeatedly condemned executions for witchcraft in Saudi Arabia.

Last year, there were reports of at least two people being executed for sorcery.

Mr Asiri was beheaded after his sentence was upheld by the country’s highest courts, the Saudi news agency website said.

No details were given of what he was found guilty of beyond the charges of witchcraft and sorcery.

Amnesty International says the country does not formally classify sorcery as a capital offence.

But the BBC’s Arab Affairs Editor, Sebastian Usher, says there is a very strong prohibition of some practices from the country’s powerful conservative religious leaders.

Some, he explains, have repeatedly called for the strongest possible punishments against anyone suspected of sorcery – whether they are fortune tellers or faith healers.

In 2010, a Lebanese television presenter of a popular fortune-telling programme was arrested while on pilgrimage to Saudi Arabia.

Though sentenced to death, after pressure from his government and human rights groups, he was freed by the Saudi Supreme Court, which found that he had not harmed anyone.

More recent cases of death on charges of sorcery include that of a Saudi woman, executed for committing sorcery and witchcraft in December, in the northern province of Jawf, and that of a Sudanese man executed in September, despite calls led by Amnesty International for his release.

In this undated photo released by Tokyo Metropolitan Police Department Wednesday, June 6, 2012 - Katsuya Takahashi,

14 June 2012               23:26 ET

Police in Japan have arrested the last fugitive of the Aum Shinrikyo doomsday cult, ending a 17-year manhunt.

Katsuya Takahashi is suspected of involvement in the 1995 sarin nerve gas attack on the Tokyo subway system that killed 13 people.

The police have verified his identity after detaining him near a cafe in Tokyo.

A manhunt involving thousands of officers began last week after the suspect fled his home.

Mr Takahashi has been on the run since the attacks, which also injured 6,000.

On Friday, police him into custody near a comic book cafe in Tokyo, local media reported.

The 54-year-old is suspected of driving a fellow cult-member to a station to release the gas during the morning rush hour.

Massive manhunt

Police officers hand out wanted leaflets of Katsuya Takahashi, the last fugitive of the Aum Shinrikyo cult wanted as a murder suspect in the 1995 sarin nerve gas attack on Tokyo subways, to people at a railway station in Tokyo Friday, 8 June, 2012
Thousands of police were mobilised last week, handing out photos of Takahashi

Another suspect, Naoko Kikuchi, was reportedly arrested two weeks ago.

Information from her led the police to a construction firm in Kawasaki where Mr Takahashi had worked under an assumed name, says the BBC’s Roland Buerk in Tokyo.

He had already fled his room in the company’s dormitory, but the police found a recent photograph of him.

It was released, along with CCTV footage of Takahashi withdrawing money from his bank account.

A massive manhunt was deployed across Tokyo last week. The man suspected of being Mr Takahashi was detained after a tip-off from a member of the public.

On New Year’s Eve another former member of Aum Shinrikyo, Makoto Hirata, turned himself in to police after nearly 17 years on the run.

Nearly 200 Aum Shinrikyo members have been convicted in connection with the sarin attack and other crimes. Thirteen are awaiting execution.

Aum Shinrikyo began as a spiritual group mixing Hindu and Buddhist beliefs in the 1980s, but developed into a paranoid cult obsessed with Armageddon.

Cult leader Shoko Asahara is among those on death row.

Aum Shinrikyo reinvented itself as the Aleph group, which continues to operate as a spiritual group.

Stone Roses fans were left confused after the reformed band failed to play an encore at a gig in Amsterdam on Tuesday, amid reports drummer Reni had left the venue.

Singer Ian Brown appeared on stage alone at the Heineken Music Hall, to tell the crowd the gig was over.

Fans had expected to hear I Am The Resurrection, which the reformed band closed a show with in Spain on Friday.

Brown reportedly said: “I’m not joking, the drummer’s gone home.”

Many of the fans present then booed the 49-year-old frontman’s announcement, according to BBC journalist Peter Shuttleworth, who was at the concert.

“Ian just said something like ‘Come on, get all your negative vibes out on me. I can take it’,” he said.

The Stone Roses - Reni, Mani, Ian Brown and John Squire
Reni, Mani, Ian Brown and John Squire have embarked on The Stone Roses first tour in 16 years

However, Shuttleworth claims the jeers were “short-lived” and fans were “more bemused than disappointed”.

He added: “People were just looking at each other thinking ‘what’s going on?'”

He also disputed reports that Reni – real name Alan Wren – had stormed off stage, saying that he and guitarist John Squire had hugged as they left.

The band seemed to have expressed plans to play an encore, telling fans: “If you want us to come back, we’re going up four storeys, so you have to cheer loud”.

‘Not happy’

The Stone Roses kicked off their first tour in 16 years in Barcelona last weekend. They have a summer of dates planned, including three homecoming shows in Manchester’s Heaton Park at the end of June.

Fans have dismissed speculation that the gig in Holland signals problems for the rest of the tour, calling the show “quality” and the crowd “enthusiastic”.

Several reports quote an insider who suggested there had been a problem with the drum kit, but this has not been confirmed.

Paul Roberts was at the gig and emailed BBC 6 Music: “At one point I saw Reni waving his arms wildly at the stage mixer, obviously not happy with something.”

Another, Matt Morris, claimed Brown’s announcement “was followed by a volley of beer thrown at the stage and booing”.

Remaining dates on the Stone Roses tour are expected to go ahead as planned, with the band due on stage in Sweden on Thursday.

Gamal (L) and Alaa Mubarak in the Police Academy in Cairo where they are on trial

Gamal (L) and Alaa Mubarak are already on trial for abuse of power

 

30 May 2012          11:29 ET

The two sons of deposed Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak are to be tried on suspicion of insider trading, Egypt’s prosecutor general says.

Gamal and Alaa Mubarak are already on trial alongside their father for abuse of power. A verdict is due on Saturday.

The new charges relating to alleged stock market manipulation will see the pair tried alongside seven others.

They were accused of violating rules to gain unlawful profits from shares in Al Watany Bank, the prosecutor said.

According to Egypt’s deputy justice minister, the brothers have $340m (£215m) in Swiss bank accounts.

Officials allege that most of the funds, which have been frozen, are held by Alaa, with the balance reportedly held by his younger brother Gamal.

In a statement, the prosecutor general said Alaa, Gamal and seven others had been referred to the criminal court on charges of violating stock market and central bank rules.

Of the seven others, two are board members and joint chief executives of Egyptian investment bank EFG-Hermes, Reuters reports.

All seven have been released on bail but barred from travel. The Mubarak brothers remain in custody pending Saturday’s verdict.

‘No coincidence’

Some of the anger that led to Mr Mubarak’s overthrow was fuelled by the belief that he and his sons had illegally amassed vast amounts of wealth.

Gamal, 48, was a leading politician in the former ruling National Democratic Party and was widely seen as his father’s heir apparent.

Alaa Mubarak, 50, is a businessman who largely kept out of politics.

If the pair are found guilty of abusing power to amass wealth on Saturday, they are expected to be sentenced to between five and 10 years in prison.

The timing of the new charges cannot be a coincidence, says the BBC’s Jon Leyne in Cairo.

Speculation is growing in Egypt, he says, about what will happen to Hosni Mubarak, his family and associates, in court on Saturday.

The new charges could mean that Gamal and Alaa would be kept in custody even if they are acquitted on the existing charges.

And if the former president should be released, he adds, it is likely to provoke more tension and possibly trouble on the streets.

Earlier, a policeman found guilty at Cairo Criminal Court of killing 18 protesters was sentenced to five years in jail.

According to state news agency Mena, Mohammed Ibrahim was convicted of “spraying bullets randomly on peaceful protesters outside the police station on 28 January 2011.”

Ibrahim had earlier been sentenced to death in absentia, but was granted a retrial after handing himself in.

28 May 2012             14:17

A complex targeted cyber-attack that collected private data from countries such as Israel and Iran has been uncovered, researchers have said.

Russian security firm Kaspersky Labs told the BBC they believed the malware, known as Flame, had been operating since August 2010.

The company said it believed the attack was state-sponsored, but could not be sure of its exact origins.

They described Flame as “one of the most complex threats ever discovered”.

Research into the attack was carried out in conjunction with the UN’s International Telecommunication Union.

In the past, targeted malware – such as Stuxnet – has targeted nuclear infrastructure in Iran.

Others like Duqu have sought to infiltrate networks in order to steal data.

This new threat appears not to cause physical damage, but to collect huge amounts of sensitive information, said Kaspersky’s chief malware expert Vitaly Kamluk.

“Once a system is infected, Flame begins a complex set of operations, including sniffing the network traffic, taking screenshots, recording audio conversations, intercepting the keyboard, and so on,” he said.

More than 600 specific targets were hit, Mr Kamluk said, ranging from individuals, businesses, academic institutions and government systems.

Iran’s National Computer Emergency Response Team posted a security alert stating that it believed Flame was responsible for “recent incidents of mass data loss” in the country.

Iran and Israel

Mr Kamluk said the size and sophistication of Flame suggested it was not the work of independent cybercriminals, and more likely to be government-backed.

He explained: “Currently there are three known classes of players who develop malware and spyware: hacktivists, cybercriminals and nation states.

“Flame is not designed to steal money from bank accounts. It is also different from rather simple hack tools and malware used by the hacktivists. So by excluding cybercriminals and hacktivists, we come to conclusion that it most likely belongs to the third group.”

Among the countries affected by the attack are Iran, Israel, Sudan, Syria, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia and Egypt.

“The geography of the targets and also the complexity of the threat leaves no doubt about it being a nation-state that sponsored the research that went into it,” Mr Kamluk said.

The malware is capable of recording audio via a microphone, before compressing it and sending it back to the attacker.

It is also able to take screenshots of on-screen activity, automatically detecting when “interesting” programs – such as email or instant messaging – were open.

‘Industrial vacuum cleaner’

Kaspersky’s first recorded instance of Flame is in August 2010, although it said it is highly likely to have been operating earlier.

Prof Alan Woodward, from the Department of Computing at the University of Surrey said the attack is very significant.

“This is basically an industrial vacuum cleaner for sensitive information,” he told the BBC.

He explained that unlike Stuxnet, which was designed with one specific task in mind, Flame was much more sophisticated.

“Whereas Stuxnet just had one purpose in life, Flame is a toolkit, so they can go after just about everything they can get their hands on.”

Once the initial Flame malware has infected a machine, additional modules can be added to perform specific tasks – almost in the same manner as adding apps to a smartphone.

28 May 2012              02:28 ET

Euro 2012 should not have been awarded to Poland and Ukraine because of entrenched racism and violence, Sol Campbell has told the BBC’s Panorama.

The former England captain’s advice to fans is to “stay home, watch it on TV… don’t even risk it.”

Uefa, European football’s governing body, said awarding the tournament to the two nations was an opportunity to tackle social challenges like racism.

It said the tournament was a chance for both countries to improve their image.

Panorama spent a month filming at matches in both the joint host nations and witnessed Nazi salutes from the terraces, black players being taunted with monkey chants, rampant anti-Semitism and a vicious assault on a group of Asian students.

‘Zero tolerance’

I am concerned that they will be targeted by racists and fascists and anti-Semites in Poland and in Ukraine”

Nick LowlesAnti-racism campaigner on his fears for England’s non-white supporters

After watching the footage, Mr Campbell said he believes Uefa should not have chosen the countries as hosts of such a prestigious event in the first place.

“I think that they were wrong, because what they should say is that ‘if you want this tournament, you sort your problems out. Until we see a massive improvement… you do not deserve these prestigious tournaments in your country.'”

In a statement, Uefa said: “Uefa Euro 2012 brings the spotlight on the host countries and clearly creates an opportunity to address and confront such societal issues.

“Uefa’s ‘zero tolerance’ approach to racism is still valid both on and off the pitch and ultimately the referee has the power to stop or abandon a match should racist incidents occur.”

Uefa said it was working with both Poland and Ukraine to ensure the safety of travelling teams and their fans.

But despite these assurances the families of two England players, Theo Walcott and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, are reported to be staying away from Euro 2012 for fear of racist attacks.

Uefa said the scenes of racist abuse filmed by the BBC in the last month were at domestic matches and a matter for national football authorities.

But Mr Campbell had this advice for fans thinking of travelling to Euro 2012: “Stay at home, watch it on TV. Don’t even risk it… because you could end up coming back in a coffin.”

Racist attack

On 14 April at the Metalist stadium in Kharkiv in Ukraine – one of the host cities for Euro 2012 – massed ranks of as many as 2,000 fans in the terraces for a match between two of Ukraine’s biggest teams gave the Nazi salute to their team.

Some fans at the match told the BBC that they were saying “Sieg Heil” because Hitler hated “Jews and blacks” and that is how they support their team.

But local police chief Colonel Volodymyr Kovrygin denied that it was a Nazi-inspired salute, saying the fans were “pointing in the direction of opponents as it were, the fans, so it looked like they were pointing with the right hand to the fans, kind of attracting attention to themselves.”

At a match two weeks later, scuffles broke out between rival fans and police arrived to calm things down. But they escalated again as Metalist fans began to attack a small group of their own supporters.

They were Indian students studying in Ukraine. They had sat in the family area of the stadium thinking it would be safe.

In the stadium’s medical room afterwards, one of the injured students said: “We were supporting the home team. It’s horrifying.”

British government advice for Euro 2012 fans of Afro-Caribbean or Asian descent is to take extra care in Ukraine because of racially motivated attacks.

Panorama also filmed matches in fellow host-nation Poland, recording a chorus of anti-Semitic chanting and witnessing black football players enduring monkey chants from the terraces.

Nick Lowles from the UK-based anti-racist monitoring group Hope Not Hate was also in Poland monitoring incidents of racism.

He said that based on what he has seen, he was concerned for non-white fans travelling to support England at Euro 2012.

“Increasingly the positive thing about English football are the number of black and Asian fans that have been travelling and supporting England. I am concerned that they will be targeted by racists and fascists and anti-Semites in Poland and in Ukraine.”

In Poland, Jonathan Ornstein of the Jewish Cultural Centre, said football hooligans in the country are stuck in the past.

“The stuff going on at the football stadiums is atrocious and it’s embarrassing and I think it embarrasses the whole country. I think that most Poles would agree with that,” he said.

20 May 2012            07:16 ET

The man who designed Raleigh’s iconic Chopper bicycle has died after a battle with cancer.

Alan Oakley, 85 and from Nottingham, home of the bike manufacturer, died on Friday.

His wife Karen told the BBC she had managed his illness “right up until the last few weeks”.

Mrs Oakley confirmed the now-legendary story that her husband drew the design for the Chopper on an envelope as he travelled home from the USA, in 1967.

Initially inspired to replicate the design of Peter Fonda’s motorbike in the classic movie Easy Rider, Mr Oakley came up with his drawing as he flew home from the trip, set up for him to “get-to-grips” with youth culture.

‘Showstopping design’

Raleigh was Alan and Alan was Raleigh”

Karen OakleyChopper designer’s wife

Moving away from the traditional, diamond-shaped frame, Mr Oakley thought a bike with huge handle bars, a bulky, padded seat with a back rest and a car-like gear lever on the main frame, would exude the “cool” he was after.

“Alan had been over to America looking to pick up a design for a bike,” said Mrs Oakley.

“While he was flying back, he had an airmail envelope and just drew this bike on the back of it and that was that, the creation of the Chopper.”

Initial attempts to sell the Chopper in America were unsuccessful.

But sales took off in the early 1970s in the UK and according to Raleigh, “changed the way a generation of British kids rode”.

Mk3 Raleigh Chopper
A limited edition Chopper Mk3 was brought out in 2004

“Raleigh wasn’t moving with the times and Alan came up with this showstopping design,” said Mrs Oakley.

The Chopper was so successful, Raleigh sold 1.5 million of them in the UK alone and the strange bike is credited with saving the company from bankruptcy.

In the 1980s, production of the Chopper ceased when rival model, the BMX, hit the market.

‘Very proud’

But in 2004, due to popular demand, a limited edition Chopper, costing between £200 and £300 for a Mk3 model, was released.

Some changes were made to the Mk1 and Mk2’s original design such as a new seat to discourage “backies”, according to Mrs Oakley, and the gear lever was moved to a safer position on the handlebars.

“As a friend and former colleague of Alan’s said, ‘Raleigh was Alan and Alan was Raleigh’, “said Mrs Oakley.

“He was there for 40 years and loved every minute of it. He made people very happy and I am very proud of him.”

20 May 2012          06:52 ET

An earthquake in northern Italy has killed at least four people and caused serious damage to buildings in several towns, local officials say.

The magnitude-six quake struck in the middle of the night, about 35km (22 miles) north of the city of Bologna.

The four victims were killed by falling masonry. Italian media report two more quake-related deaths.

The tremor caused “significant damage to the cultural heritage” of Emilia Romagna region, the government said.

The culture ministry said firefighters and civil protection workers were now examining damaged historic buildings.

It was the worst tremor to hit the country since the L’Aquila quake killed nearly 300 people in central Italy in 2009.

‘Big bang’

Northern Italy quake

map
  • Kills at least four and damages buildings across Emilia Romagna region
  • San Felice sul Panaro: 15th-Century castle severely damaged
  • Finale Emilia: bell tower collapses, crushing cars
  • Sant’Agostino: ceramic factory destroyed, killing two employees
  • Tecopress di Dosso: worker dies when a factory roof collapses
  • Buonacompra: historic church destroyed
  • Tremor also felt in cities of Bologna, Modena, Ferrara, Rovigo, Verona and Mantua

The earthquake struck at a relatively shallow depth of 10km just after 04:00 local time (02:00 GMT).

It was felt across a large swathe of northern Italy, including the cities of Bologna, Ferrara, Verona and Mantua and as far away as Milan and Venice.

The tremor forced many terrified residents into the streets.

Two people were killed in Sant’Agostino when a ceramics factory collapsed.

The mother of one of the victims told local media that “he wasn’t supposed to be there. He changed shifts with a friend”.

Another person – believed to be a Moroccan national – was killed in Ponte Rodoni do Bondeno.

In Tecopress di Dosso, one worker died when the roof of foundry collapsed, Rai News24 reports.

Local media also say a woman died near Bologna, with reports suggesting that she may have had a heart attack. Another victim was an elderly woman in Sant-Agostino.

About 50 people were injured – but none seriously, reports say.

Aftershocks were reported soon after the quake.

“I was woken at around 4am by the quake, it was strong and lasted up to a minute, maybe more,” Frankie Thompson, a UK travel journalist in Bologna, told the BBC.

“Church bells were set off spontaneously… followed by an eerie silence. Small aftershocks kept coming and going until maybe 5:50am when a stronger tremor shook us again but not as long and dramatic as the first,” she added.

Britain’s David Trew, who is staying in a hotel in Ferrara, told the BBC: “I was sound asleep when the tremors started. I was having quite a vivid dream, and the first few seconds of the quake became part of the dream.

“As I began to wake up it took me a few seconds to realise that it was actually happening for real. I fumbled around in the darkness, now very scared. The room was shaking violently, plaster was dropping off the ceiling into my hair and all over the floor.”

One local resident told Ansa: “I heard a big bang and I ran on the terrace, I was afraid of falling.”

TV footage later showed people inspecting damaged houses, offices and historic buildings. Parts of a castle in Finale Emilia collapsed.

Emergency officials ordered the evacuation of patients from hospitals as a precautionary measure.

Northern Italy is frequently rocked by minor earthquake, but the country is well-prepared to deal with them, the BBC’s Alan Johnston in Rome reports.

In January, a 5.3-magnitude quake hit northern Italy but caused no injuries.

Prince Charles had a go at reading the weather during a tour of BBC Scotland’s Pacific Quay headquarters.

He and his wife, the Duchess of Cornwall, visited the broadcaster as a part of their annual Holyrood Week.

BBC newsreader Sally Magnusson handed over to Prince Charles, who read his version of Reporting Scotland’s lunchtime weather.

The prince, also known as the Duke of Rothesay, had earlier met students at the City of Glasgow College.

“Thank God it isn’t a bank holiday”

Prince Charles

Against a backdrop of the BBC’s weather map, Prince Charles delivered a specially written script which included references to royal residences in Scotland.

Looking directly into the camera, he said: “The best of the bright and dry weather will of course be in the northern isles and the far north of the mainland. So, a little hazy sunshine for the Castle of Mey in Caithness.

“But a cold day everywhere with temperatures of just 8C and a brisk northerly wind. Thank God it isn’t a bank holiday.”

The duke and duchess spent more than an hour at BBC Scotland, which is celebrating 60 years of television broadcasting.

World champion swimmer Spyros Gianniotis with the torch at the rehearsal

10 May 2012          07:34 ET

The flame for the London 2012 torch relay and Olympic Games has been lit during a ceremony in Olympia, Greece.

It was kindled by actress Ino Menegaki, playing a “high priestess”, who caught the sun’s rays in a parabolic mirror.

The ceremony took place amid the Temple of Hera ruins, by the ancient Olympic Games stadium. The flame went out briefly before being relit and transferred to the first torchbearer.

The flame flies to Britain on Friday 18 May for a 70-day relay around the UK.

At the temple ruins, actresses playing Olympic priestesses danced and men dressed as heralds put on a display symbolising athletic strength before the fire was ignited using the mirror.

The flame – an Olympic symbol meant to represent purity because it comes directly from the sun – was placed in an urn and taken to the stadium where the ancient Olympic Games were held.

It was transferred to a Greek torch which then “kissed” the London 2012 torch of Liverpool-born Greek world champion 10km swimmer Spyros Gianniotis.

He began to run with it on the first leg of its week-long journey around Greece.

Flame out

Our correspondent James Pearce reported that the flame briefly went out as it was being transferred from the temple to the stadium, but the ceremony passed otherwise without incident in a country battling political and economic turmoil.

Chairman of the London games organisers, Locog, Lord Coe, International Olympic Committee president Jacques Rogge and Hellenic Olympic Committee president Spyros Capralos were in Olympia for the moment that marks the countdown to London 2012.

Lord Coe told the BBC: “Today is the rallying call to the athletes – the best athletes of their generation – to come to London. That in itself is a big moment because it’s the biggest sporting event in the calendar.”

World champion swimmer Spyros Gianniotis was the first to carry the torch.

In his speech to assembled Greek and Olympic dignitaries and a crowd gathered on the slopes of the stadium he said: “We are reminded this morning of sport’s enduring and universal appeal, and the timeless Olympic values that transcend history and geography; values which, I believe, in these challenging times are more relevant than at any time before and particularly to young people the world over.

“In 1948, shortly after the Second World War, my predecessor stood where I am today and made the first tentative steps in turning the world from war to sport.

“We find ourselves in challenging times again and turn to sport once more to connect the world in a global celebration of achievement and inspiration.”

‘Peace symbol’

Mr Rogge said that like the messengers in ancient times who shared news of the Olympic truce – the laying down of arms for the Games – “the torchbearers who carry this flame to London will spread the message of sport’s capacity to promote peace and to make our world a better place”.

He said: “We have come to the ancestral home of the Olympic movement to light a flame that will soon cast its glow over the entire world.

“The flame that we kindle here, from the pure rays of the sun, is a powerful symbol of the tradition and values that underlie our movement.

“It is a beacon for the Olympic values of friendship, excellence and respect… a symbol of fellowship and peace.”

First torchbearer Mr Gianniotis passed the torch on to Alex Loukos, 19, the first British torchbearer, a boxer and, in 2005, one of a delegation of east London schoolchildren who travelled to Singapore as part of London’s final bid for the Games.

Mr Loukos said: “It feels like I’m coming full circle.

“I went out to Singapore and now I’m here, sort of kicking it off. It’s a big honour and a privilege and I’m just trying to take it all in.”

The torch is due to travel 2,900kms (1,800 miles) through Greece, carried by 500 torchbearers, on a route circling the country and travelling out to Crete.

Map of torch relay route in Greece
The Greek relay starts in Olympia and finishes in Athens, taking in Crete

Greece has seen huge demonstrations of social unrest in previous months, sparked by financial chaos and efforts to reach a deal with the European Union on a bail-out for its economy.

Talks to try to form a new government have been ongoing since elections on Sunday failed to produce a conclusive result.

And while Olympic leaders gathered for the pristine ceremony on Thursday, the economic crisis has hit Greek sport and games preparation.

Some Athens 2004 venues have fallen into disrepair and the country’s athletics federation has suspended domestic events amid severe national funding cuts.

Several international companies including BMW have stepped in to help fund the torch’s journey around Greece.

The Greek leg of the 2012 torch relay ends at the Panathenaic Stadium, Athens, on Thursday 17 May, where the flame is handed over to London Olympic Games organisers.

The stadium hosted the first modern Olympic Games in 1896.

The last torchbearers in Greece will be Greek weightlifter Pyrros Dimas and Chinese gymnast Li Ning – who lit the cauldron at the Beijing 2008 opening ceremony.

The 2008 Olympic torch relay, which travelled the globe, was dogged by pro-Tibet, democracy and anti-China protests.

The 2012 flame will travel straight from Greece to the UK on 18 May, flying into the Royal Navy airbase at Culdrose, near Helston in Cornwall.

The UK torch relay begins at Land’s End the following morning when three times Olympic gold medal-winning sailor Ben Ainslie will be the first to carry the torch on British soil.

He wrote in the Daily Telegraph: “It is a privilege for me to be asked but, more than anything, it is an exciting moment for the country.

“The arrival of the torch on home soil really brings home how close the Games are.”

Carried by 8,000 torchbearers, the Barber Osgerby-designed torch will cover 8,000 miles across all of the country’s nations and regions.

It is due to reach the Olympic Stadium in Stratford on 27 July to light the cauldron at the opening ceremony of the Olympic Games.

For the ancient Greeks, fire was a divine element believed to have been stolen from the Gods.

A flame was first lit at the modern Olympics at the Amsterdam 1928 summer games, but it was not until Berlin 1936 that a torch relay route was set out from Greece to Germany.

8 May 2012            02:57 ET

A Thai man in his 60s who was jailed for 20 years for sending text messages deemed offensive to the royal family has died, his lawyer said.

Ampon Tangnoppakul was hospitalised last week for a pain in his stomach, the lawyer told the BBC.

His wife found out that he had died when she visited the jail in Bangkok this morning.

The cause of death is being investigated, said a doctor, and it is still not known when Ampon died.

He was convicted in November last year of sending four messages to an official working for then Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva.

He denied the claims and said he did not know how to send a text.

The conviction – the heaviest for a lese majeste case – sparked outrage among rights groups, with Amnesty International describing Ampon as a political prisoner and the European Union expressing ”deep concern”.

Reform calls

Ampon, who became known as ”Uncle SMS”, had been hoping for a royal pardon, his lawyer Anon Numpa said.

He was charged under the Computer Crimes Act and lese majeste law, which is designed to protect the monarchy.

Critics say both laws have been increasingly politicised and used to curb free speech in Thailand. Activists have called for the laws to be reformed.

A number of foreigners have been convicted of the offence in recent years, but they are often quickly pardoned and deported from the country.

Some Thai academics and writers have fled the country for fear of being denounced.

In an ongoing high-profile case, the webmaster of a liberal news website has been put on trial for allegedly failing to remove offensive comments posted by readers quickly enough.

The verdict for the case is due at the end of this month.

Benjamin Netanyahu

May 7, 2012        10:44 PM CT

Israeli opposition party Kadima agreed early today to join Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s ruling coalition in a surprise announcement that nullifies plans to hold national elections in September.

“Kadima is joining and early elections are canceled,” ruling Likud party spokeswoman Noga Katz said by telephone. Elections will take place in October or November 2013 as originally scheduled, she said. Kadima leader Shaul Mofaz, a former defense minister and chief of staff, will become vice prime minister and minister without portfolio, she said.

The move increases the coalition’s seats in the 120-member Knesset to 94, according to the parliamentary website, amid growing tensions over Iran’s nuclear program, a slowing economy and stalled Palestinian peace talks. Mofaz has said Israel should focus less attention on Iran and more on negotiations with the Palestinians as well as socio-economic issues.

“Netanyahu will have to show flexibility on Iran to acknowledge Kadima’s stake in the new coalition government and make it work,” said In Nam Sik, an associate professor of Middle Eastern and Islamic Affairs at South Korea’s state-run National Diplomatic Academy.

The agreement came after the Knesset gave preliminary approval for early elections yesterday. While Netanyahu was favored to win, he would still need coalition partners, according to polls published in the last few days. Likud would have won 31 seats compared with the 27 it holds now, according to a survey published in the Maariv newspaper on May 3.

Former Defense Chief

Mofaz, 63, was born in Iran and immigrated with his family to Israel in 1957. In 1998 he become the military chief of staff and in 2002 was appointed defense minister in the Likud-led government of then-Prime Minister Ariel Sharon.

As defense minister, Mofaz oversaw the withdrawal of all troops and Jewish settlements from the Gaza Strip in 2005, an operation that drew criticism from many in the Likud party. Mofaz quit Likud with Sharon later that year to establish Kadima.

The alliance with Mofaz has the potential to remake Israeli domestic politics, reducing the disproportionate influence of smaller religious parties, said David Makovsky, director of research at the Washington Institute for Near East Studies. At the same time, it will likely ensure that Israel’s leading proponent of an attack on Iran, Defense Minister Ehud Barak, will remain in office, he said.

“It’s a stunning move,” Makovsky said in a telephone interview. “It’s a new world.”

Cheetah mauling Violet D'Mello

5 May 2012          11:51 ET

A British tourist who tried to protect a girl being mauled by captive cheetahs has told of how the animals then turned on her.

Violet D’Mello, 60, from Aberdeen, said she survived by “playing dead” at the Kragga Kamma Game Park in Port Elizabeth, South Africa last weekend.

She and another family had entered the enclosure for a photo next to the cats when the child was attacked.

Mrs D’Mello told the BBC she was now “on the mend”.

“I have lots of bite and puncture marks, and my scalp was sliced open,” she said.

“For four days I was quite traumatised, but you have got to move on.”

She said that the animals were not being “vicious” when they attacked her.

“It was, I think, a playful attack… I just remember something biting my head and dragging me down.

“But even then I was just thinking of the children [in the enclosure]. We were told they would never attack adults, it was the children we were concerned about.”

Earlier, Mrs D’Mello told the Port Elizabeth Herald the incident was a “nightmare”.

She had intervened when one of the cheetahs grabbed the girl from the family.

“They weren’t being vicious,” she told the newspaper. “You could tell they were just excited, but it became serious very quickly.

Her scalp itself was the worst because the tooth had penetrated between the skull and the scalp [which] was peeled backwards.”

Archie D’Mello

“It all happened so fast. After his sister was free, another boy tried to make a run for it.

“As I stopped him, something jumped me from behind.”

‘Multiple bite injuries’

A park guide pulled the cheetah off but another cat then attacked the 60-year-old.

Other people on the scene managed to get both cats off and everyone escaped the enclosure.

Mrs D’Mello suffered injuries to her head, stomach and legs during the incident, which happened during a holiday with her husband Archie.

She added: “Something inside me just said, ‘Don’t move. Don’t move at all. Don’t react, just play dead’.”

“This was meant to be a holiday, but it’s really turned into a nightmare.”

She said her husband Archie continued to take photos of her ordeal because he had not noticed the attack.

“There was no time for anything. My husband was just clicking away. I don’t think it even registered that the attack was actually happening when he was taking the pictures. It all happened within seconds.”

Mr D’Mello told the BBC that the park’s guide seemed to be caught unawares by the attack.

Mrs D’Mello is seen here with one of the cheetahs just before the attack

“I was about five to 10 feet away. We didn’t expect anything to happen like this. I don’t think even the guide knew what to do. She didn’t have any weapons, or stick or Taser, until somebody from the outside gave us a stick and the guide used it on the cheetah’s head to release the hold on my wife.”

He also said his wife has “multiple bite injuries”.

He added: “She has had a lot of stitches to both her eyes. Her scalp itself was the worst because the tooth had penetrated between the skull and the scalp [which] was peeled backwards. She lost a lot of blood from the head. She had to spend the first 48 hours in bed.

“The worst bit was her left eye. There was a claw mark on it. Her eyelid was bruised and bleeding and completely closed up but [the tooth] hadn’t penetrated the eyelid.

“She was very lucky in that respect. No major arteries were damaged. The animals themselves seemed playful, they did a lot of damage.”

The enclosure at the park has been closed while the incident is investigated.

Park manager Mike Cantor said the hand-reared cheetahs, brothers Mark and Monty, were “tame”.

He said: “It’s not something we’ve ever really experienced. It’s obviously very unfortunate, and we’re looking into what may have startled or riled up the cheetahs.

“We’ve had these animals for four years, dozens of people have come through here and seen them and fallen in love with them, so it pains us to hear about something like this.

“From what we’ve been told, there was a lot of commotion at the scene, which, unfortunately, most likely aggravated them somewhat. We’re also considering the possibility that a female in heat in one of the neighbouring enclosures might have played a role here, but we can’t be sure at this stage.”

Peter Fein is a self-described “hacktivist” and member of the international hacker group Anonymous.

This loose collection of hackers has gained notoriety by aiming DDoS (distributed denial of service) attacks on government and corporate websites since 2010. The targets have ranged from the US Department of Justice to Sony and Visa.

As befits the name Anonymous, most members have chosen to keep their identities secret – especially after dozens of alleged hackers were arrested in a series of government crackdowns in the US and Europe.

Mr Fein, however, has decided to go public about his involvement. He insists he is not involved in anything illegal, claiming that he simply helps bring together activists who want to battle government surveillance and attempts to police the internet.

The activist from Chicago is also involved with another hacker group called Telecomix – an international network of people providing internet access to pro-democracy protesters in countries such as Egypt, Libya and Syria.

Mr Fein says he is not a spokesman for either group and that Telecomix’s achievements are the result of countless hours of work from hundreds of members.

In an exclusive interview with the BBC’s Matt Danzico he explains what he believes Anonymous is trying to achieve – and why he decided to go public.

5 May 2012         05:37 ET

Boris Johnson has won a second term as London mayor, beating Labour rival Ken Livingstone by 3%, after a far closer contest than expected.

Mr Johnson won on second preference votes after failing to gain more than 50% in the first round.

He bucked the national trend after heavy Tory losses elsewhere.

Lib Dem Brian Paddick saw his vote collapse and he was beaten into fourth place by Green Jenny Jones, with independent Siobhan Benita fifth.

Mr Johnson’s victory comes after a dismal night at the polls for Conservatives across England, Scotland and Wales, as Labour seized control of 32 councils.

Labour also saw a significant boost in their vote across London in the Assembly elections – but many of the party’s voters appear to have shunned Ken Livingstone when it came to choosing a mayor.

In other developments:

  • Labour gained 823 councillors nationally, as the Tories lost 405 and the Lib Dems 336
  • Labour had a projected 38% national share of the vote, up three points, with the Tories down four on 31% and the Lib Dems unchanged on 16%
  • The Lib Dems were the big losers in Scotland, where Labour and the Scottish National Party made big gains
  • Voters in Birmingham, Sheffield, Newcastle, Wakefield, Manchester, Nottingham, Bradford, Leeds and Coventry rejected the mayoral system – but Bristol voted in favour and Doncaster voted to keep theirs
  • Labour made substantial gains in Wales, including taking Cardiff

Mr Johnson gained 44% of first preference votes, to Ken Livingstone’s 40.3%. After second preferences came into play, Mr Johnson gained a total of 1,054,811 votes, or 51.5%, to the Labour candidate’s 48.5% – making it an even closer contest than in 2008.

“This is my last election”

He outperformed the Conservative Party as a whole across the country, and was asked by the BBC’s Evan Davis, after his victory, why that might be.

“I think the mayoral election is genuinely an election between two candidates who are, as you can see, for one reason or another, thought to be distinct from their parties in some senses – you saw that with both Livingstone and to an extent me,” he said.

“But my programme is absolutely, avowedly conservative with a big C or a small c.”

There has been speculation that Mr Johnson could be a future Conservative Party leader, but he told the BBC he was dedicating himself to London and people could “take it for granted” that he would not stand as an MP at the 2015 general election.

Conservative Home Secretary Theresa May said Mr Johnson’s victory was “a great result”, and admitted it had been “a difficult set of elections for us this time round”.

“We recognise that, but it was difficult times and it was against a very hard backdrop,” she said.

Mr Johnson failed to secure the massive win predicted by some opinion polls – and at one stage, as the count was delayed, it looked as if the Labour candidate might overtake him.

‘Negativity’

Mr Livingstone announced his apparent retirement from frontline politics in his losing speech, saying “this will be my last election”.

Later, he apologised for failing to secure victory, but said the campaign had been “vicious and unpleasant” and blamed “incredibly slanted” media coverage which he said had led to his key pledge – to cut fares – being “marginalised”.

He said that as mayor, Mr Johnson had “carried on opening the things I started”, but not done anything to plan ahead for London’s future.

Name Party Votes
Johnson CON 1,054,811
Livingstone LAB 992,273

“If we have another four years like that, then by the end of this decade London will be insufferable. The population’s growing, you’ve got to massively expand housing, you’ve go to expand the transport capacity.

“It will be the mayor two down the road from here who then faces a real crisis.”

Labour’s London-wide Assembly vote was up 14.3% on 2008, while the Conservatives were down 4.7%.

Labour MP for Hackney North and Stoke Newington Diane Abbott – told BBC Breakfast there had been a “relentless media campaign” against Mr Livingstone but that people across the country were turning away from the coalition government.

“Whereas these local elections have proved to the Labour Party that we’re going in the right direction – even if we’ve still got a lot to do – they’re proving to Cameron that he’s in the wrong direction,” she said.

The BBC’s political correspondent Tim Reid said there was now huge pressure on both David Cameron and Nick Clegg to change course and drop certain policies from next week’s Queen’s Speech.

Some backbench Conservatives are urging Mr Cameron to abandon more liberal-minded policies like gay marriage, while some Lib Dems want Mr Clegg to put greater distance between them and the Tories.

UKIP blunder

Labour secured eight of the London Assembly’s 14 first-past-the-post constituencies, gaining two from the Tories, which left them with six.

The 38.1% turnout in London was down 6.7% on 2008 when Mr Johnson and Mr Livingstone last went head-to-head in the race for City Hall.

To cap a dreadful night at the polls for the Liberal Democrats, mayoral candidate Brian Paddick lost more than half of his 2008 vote.

Independent Siobhan Benita, a political newcomer, was the surprise package of the night, threatening at one point to come third ahead of Mr Paddick and the Green’s Jenny Jones.

She has told the BBC she plans to stand again in 2016, adding that people were “disillusioned with party politics” and wanted “a new type of public leader”.

UKIP’s hopes of returning to the London Assembly appear to have been dashed – but the party blamed an administrative blunder by their officials, which led to candidates being listed as “Fresh choice for London” rather than UKIP.

How Madeleine might look age nine

25 April 2012         07:34 ET

UK detectives reviewing evidence into Madeleine McCann’s disappearance have issued a computer-generated image of what she might look like now.

The picture, created with the McCann family, shows how she would look aged nine, the Metropolitan Police said.

Having analysed the evidence, the Met said it is possible Madeleine is alive, and they believe she was abducted.

Madeleine, from Rothley, Leics, was nearly four when she disappeared from a holiday apartment in Portugal in 2007.

On Tuesday, Det Ch Insp Andy Redwood, who is heading the UK review, told the BBC’s Panorama programme his team were “seeking to bring closure to the case”.

‘Close collaboration’

The UK review began last May after Prime Minister David Cameron responded to a plea from Madeleine’s parents Gerry and Kate.

From the outset we have approached this review with a completely open mind placing Madeleine McCann at the heart of everything we do”

DCI Andy Redwood

The Metropolitan Police have been working in “close collaboration” with a senior investigating officer from Portugal’s Policia Judaria.

The review team has been compiling and reviewing material from three separate strands – the Portuguese investigation, inquiries by the UK law enforcement agencies, and the work of private investigators or agencies.

It is believed to be around 40,000 pieces of information equating to about 100,000 pages.

“The intention is to identify from that material investigative opportunities which we will then present to the Portuguese authorities who retain primacy for the investigation.

“Officers have so far identified around 195 such opportunities within the historic material, and are also developing what they believe to be genuinely new material,” said the Metropolitan Police.

The force said the objective of the team was to work with the Portuguese authorities with a view to having the case, closed since 2008, re-opened in due course.

DCI Redwood said: “From the outset we have approached this review with a completely open mind, placing Madeleine McCann at the heart of everything we do.

“We are working on the basis of two possibilities here – one is that Madeleine is still alive; and the second that she is sadly dead,” he said.

The Metropolitan Police have also appealed for anyone with new information to come forward.

Kyle McDonald.

8 July 2011             10:54 ET

The US Secret Service has raided the
home of an artist who collected images from webcams in a New York Apple
store.

Kyle McDonald is said to have installed software that photographed people
looking at laptops then uploaded the pictures to a website.

Mr McDonald said he had obtained permission from a security guard to take
photos inside the store.

Apple declined to comment. However, the Secret Service confirmed that its
electronic crime division was involved.

A spokesperson told the BBC that the investigation was taking place under US Code Title 18 /1030 which relates to “Fraud
and related activity in connection with computers.”

Offences covered by the legislation carry a maximum penalty of 20 years in
prison.

Writing on Twitter, Mr McDonald said: “@secretservice just stopped by to
investigate [web address removed] and took my laptop. Please assume they’re
reading any e-mails you send me.”

No arrests had been made in the case as of 8 July.

Staring

Kyle McDonald’s images were uploaded to a page on the blogging site
Tumblr.

In the description of People Staring at Computers, the project is described
as: “A photographic intervention. Custom app installed around NYC, taking a
picture every minute and uploading it if a face is found in the image.

“Exhibited on site with a remotely triggered app that displayed the photos
full screen on every available computer.”

The site features a video and series of photographs, apparently showing
shoppers trying-out computers.

Comments on the individuals by visitors to the site are also attached to the
images.

Mr McDonald, writing on Twitter, said that he had been advised not to comment
on the case by the online freedom group the Electronic Frontier Foundation.
