• Probe your own brother, ousted Thai PM tells junta chief

    Thailand's first female prime minister on Sunday told the man who ousted her government two years ago to investigate his own brother over corruption allegations, in an unusually strong broadside against the junta. Yingluck Shinawatra was booted from office shortly before army chief Prayut Chan-O-Cha seized power in May 2014, the military's second coup in less than a decade and their twelfth successful power grab since 1932. The last two legal cases stem from a popular but financially costly rice subsidy scheme that Yingluck's government pushed.

  • Hart reaps Mihajlovic praise after rousing Roma win

    Torino coach Sinisa Mihajlovic heaped praise on Joe Hart after a sterling performance by the England goalkeeper in a 3-1 win over Roma in Turin on Sunday. Ousted from Manchester City by Pep Guardiola last month, Hart joined the unfashionable Serie A side in a bid to maintain his status as England's number one shot-stopper. Having kept 'Granata' fans guessing during a few nervous displays in recent weeks, Hart was solid throughout at Torino's Stadio Olimpico where the only blot on his report card was Francesco Totti's 55th minute penalty for the visitors.

  • Perfect Manchester City eclipse United again

    Leaders Manchester City beat Swansea 3-1 to make it a perfect 10 victories under Pep Guardiola, including six in the Premier League, as they recorded their best start to a top-flight campaign.

On a day of 29 goals in eight games, both Manchester sides were outscored by Liverpool, who crushed Hull City 5-1 to take their tally to 24 in the past eight games.

  • Roger Moore’s son is a dead ringer for his father in Bond costume

    It seems the next generation of the Moore family has continued to keep the British end up, so to speak. The Daily Mail shared an image of Geoffrey Moore, 50-year old son of the third 007 actor Roger, dressed as his father for a party in Mayfair this week. Geoffrey Moore was 7 years old when his father inherited the mantle of 007 with 1973’s ‘Live and Let Die,’ going on to be the most prolific Bond actor with seven films in the role before retiring in 1985 (by which time, most would agree the then 57-year old actor was far too old for the part).

  • U.S., Russia trade blows over Syria as warplanes pound Aleppo

    By Michelle Nichols and Suleiman Al-Khalidi UNITED NATIONS/AMMAN (Reuters) - The United States accused Russia of "barbarism" in Syria on Sunday as warplanes supporting Syrian government forces pounded Aleppo and Moscow said ending the civil war was almost "impossible". A diplomatic solution to the fighting looked unlikely as U.S. and Russian diplomats disagreed at a U.N. Security Council meeting called to discuss the violence, which has escalated since a ceasefire collapsed last week. Rebels, who are battling President Bashar al-Assad's forces for control of Aleppo, said any peace process would be futile unless the "scorched earth bombing" stopped immediately.
