  • Two US journalists shot dead on live TV

    A former reporter fired by a Virginia television station shot dead two of its journalists during a live broadcast Wednesday and posted chilling footage of the crime online before fatally shooting himself. The gunman — Vester Lee Flanagan, 41, also known as Bryce Williams — died in a hospital from a self-inflicted gunshot wound after being taken into custody by state police following an intense morning manhunt across the state. Reporter Alison Parker, 24, and cameraman Adam Ward, 27, were fatally shot at close range while conducting an on-air interview for WDBJ, a CBS affiliate in Roanoke, about 240 miles (385 kilometers) southwest of Washington. The killings once again highlighted gun violence in America — prompting a quick White House call for action — and also raised questions about how the Internet provided a brief but unfiltered window on a horrific crime.

  • New, improved Mario Balotelli ready to fulfil dying father's wish

    Balotelli's return to the Rossoneri on a one-season loan deal has been met with derision in Italy, with pundits and most fans opposed to the striker's return to the club he left only a year ago. Balotelli spectacularly underperformed at Anfield, instead embellishing his reputation as a "liability" -- the view of former Reds legend Graeme Souness, among others. Coach Sinisa Mihajlovic and Milan have instigated a special code of conduct for Balotelli, a player who in the past has riled fans and clubs with his off-field antics, outrageous hairstyles and outings to nightclubs where he has enjoyed the odd cigarette. Balotelli has pledged to comply -- and with good reason.

  • We will investigate Zimbabwean officials for torture: SAPS

    In a unanimous judgment, delivered by acting Justice Stevan (SUBS: CORRECT) Majiedt, the court concluded that the SAPS must investigate the claims because it had a duty to do so, under the Constitution, the ICC Act, and South Africa's international law obligation. The Southern Africa Litigation Centre (SALC), who initially brought the case with the Zimbabwean Exiles Forum (Zef) in 2008, said on Thursday South Africa's highest court had set an important precedent.
