• Chelsea snatch Manchester United draw in battle of Dutch managers

    A goal in added time by Diego Costa earned Chelsea a 1-1 draw against Manchester United on Sunday and preserved Guus Hiddink's unbeaten record while denying Dutch compatriot Louis van Gaal victory. It also meant United had failed to win any of their last 10 league and cup meetings with Chelsea over the past three years. Jesse Lingaard scored a fine goal for the visitors after an hour's play but in the first minute of added time Costa coolly beat Spain team mate David De Gea to snatch a draw for a side unbeaten since Hiddink returned as interim manager in December.

  • Insight: Doctors puzzle over severity of defects in some Brazilian babies

    By Bill Berkrot and Anthony Boadle NEW YORK/BRASILIA, (Reuters) - Experts on microcephaly, the birth defect that has sparked alarm in the current Zika virus outbreak, say they are struck by the severity of a small number of cases they have reviewed from Brazil. Consultations among doctors in Brazil and the United States have increased in the last two weeks, and some of the leading authorities on the condition are finding patterns of unusual devastation in scans of the newborns' malformed brains. While it's not known how representative the scans are, the early observations of these doctors point to a tough road ahead for the babies, their families and their communities and heighten the concern surrounding Zika, which is suspected of causing microcephaly.
