• Avalanche sweeps Everest base camp, killing 17, injuring 61

    An avalanche triggered by Nepal's massive earthquake slammed into a section of the Mount Everest mountaineering base camp, killing at least 17, injuring 61 and leaving an unknown number of climbers and guides unaccounted for on other routes, an official said Sunday. The avalanche began Saturday on Mount Kumori, a 7,000-meter (22,966-foot) -high mountain just a few miles (kilometers) from Everest, gathering strength as it headed toward the base camp where climbing expeditions have been preparing to make their summit attempts in the coming weeks, he said.

  • Van Gaal forces Manchester United players to listen to funky house music

    Louis van Gaal is famed for his strict discipline and Ashley Young has now lifted the lid on one of the Manchester United manager's more unconventional rules: players must only listen to house music! England international Young, enjoying a renaissance under the maverick Dutchman, is United's resident dressing-room DJ but he admits that he is under orders to play a certain genre of music. Van Gaal, once seen busting out some moves at a rave, is a huge fan of house and funky house music, meaning that the mainstream tracks have been shelved in favour of a more unconventional playlist.

  • Obama pokes fun at political friends and foes at White House dinner

    By Tanya Basu WASHINGTON (Reuters) - At the gathering he jokingly called "a night when Washington celebrates itself," U.S. President Barack Obama took light-hearted aim on Saturday at a range of political friends and foes, including the people running to succeed him. Obama's comedy routine at the annual White House Correspondents' Dinner included a sly dig at Hillary Clinton, the current front-runner to be the Democratic candidate in the 2016 presidential election. Noting that some Americans are living in a time of uncertainty, Obama said, "For example, I have one friend just a few weeks ago, she was making millions of dollars a year and she's now living out of a van in Iowa." Clinton, who as a former secretary of state, former senator and former first lady is one of America's best known figures, traveled around in a van this month in a deliberately low-key trip to the state that holds an early contest in the election primary season.

  • Wenger: Sign Fabregas? No, Arsenal have Alexis & Ozil

    Arsene Wenger has insisted there was "no logic" in Arsenal re-signing Cesc Fabregas with Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil already at the club. The former Gunners captain joined Chelsea last summer from Barcelona for a fee of around £30 million, with Alexis moving to the Emirates Stadium the following month for a similar figure. Alexis has impressed in his debut season, contributing 21 goals and nine assists, while Ozil - a club-record arrival a year earlier - is flourishing of late after a period marred by injury problems and inconsistent displays.

At the start of the year the government published a list of around 20 imported food products it said were not halal, or permitted under Islamic law. Shops in Pakistan, an Islamic republic where 97 percent of the population are Muslims, already do not stock pork or alcohol -- with a few extremely rare exceptions for foreigners and the small Christian minority.
