  • Goliath gates: Entrance to famous biblical metropolis uncovered

    A massive gate unearthed in Israel may have marked the entrance to a biblical city that, in its heyday, was the biggest metropolis in the region. The town, called Gath, was occupied until the ninth century B.C. In biblical accounts, the Philistines — the mortal enemies of the Israelites — ruled the city. The Old Testament also describes Gath as the home of Goliath, the giant warrior whom the Israelite King David felled with a slingshot. The new findings reveal just how impressive the ancient Philistine city once was, said Aren Maeir of Bar-Ilan University in Israel, the lead archaeologist on the current excavation.

"Malaysians and the world are watching the country being seized by a madness where the government is warring against itself," said Lim Kit Siang, parliamentary leader from the opposition Democratic Action Party (DAP).

  • World hopes for first clues to MH370 mystery

    Technical experts in France were to begin examining a washed-up plane part on Wednesday that almost certainly belonged to missing flight MH370, raising hopes that some light may finally be shed on one of aviation's darkest mysteries.

  • Meet The ‘Real-Life Iron Man’

    Marvel’s self-styled “genius billionaire playboy philanthropist” is a work of pure fiction… isn’t he? When Stan Lee created the character of Tony Stark and his crime-fighting alter-ego Iron Man in 1963, the character was conceived as a straight-up capitalist – a ludicrous concoction of billionaire industry magnate, ladies man and adventurer. Little did Stan Lee know that just eight years later, a child would be born who would one day embody all the things that Iron Man represented on the page – one who would go on to inform the most popular portrayal of the character.
