  • Hollywood star Randy Quaid arrested trying to enter US

    American actor Randy Quaid and his wife have been arrested trying to cross into the United States from Canada, police said Saturday, the latest twist in a bizarre long-running saga. The actor -- who starred in "Brokeback Mountain" and "Independence Day" -- and his wife Evi claimed asylum in Canada in 2010 saying they were in fear of their lives to escape a group they dubbed the "Hollywood Star Whackers." They claimed it was a shadowy outfit of villains bent on killing American celebrities. Border officials say the couple are fugitives from justice in the United States over alleged illegal squatting in a US home that they used to own.

  • N. Korea ready for US war, leader tells lavish military parade

    North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un said he was ready for war with the United States as the nuclear-armed nation celebrated its ruling party's 70th birthday Saturday with a spectacular, mass military parade. Tens of thousands of troops, followed by waves of tanks, armoured vehicles and ballistic missiles, goose-stepped their way through Pyongyang's Kim Il-Sung Square in one of the largest ceremonial displays of military muscle the country had ever organised. The cheers were echoed by tens of thousands of flag and flower-waving participants gathered in the square named after Kim's grandfather, over which a large banner slung from a gas-filled balloon read: "Long live the invincible Workers' Party of Korea." North Korean threats to wipe out the US and neighbouring South Korea are common-place, but this was a particularly pointed message of defiance, given in the most public of forums before the cameras of the invited international media.

  • Holders Spain still struggling to revive golden era

    By Tim Hanlon BARCELONA (Reuters) - Although reigning champions Spain have qualified for Euro 2016 there still remains plenty of work to be done if they are to match the heights they attained in their golden spell before their failure at the Brazil World Cup. A routine 4-0 victory over Luxembourg on Friday rubber- stamped their passage to France next year having won eight of their nine qualifying matches in Group C. Still they have been made to work hard and have not been able to ease to victory against inferior sides on paper. Against Luxembourg again they got the goals in the end but it was a long way from the dominant ‘tiki-taka’ football when they swept aside opponents with quick passing.

  • Ice Age Mammoth Bones Discovered on Michigan Farm

    Two Michigan farmers made an unexpected discovery in a wheat field last week: the ice-age bones of a mammoth that was likely slaughtered by ancient humans. An excavation and analysis of the bones suggest they come from an adult male mammoth that had an unlucky end. "We think that humans were here and may have butchered and stashed the meat [in a pond] so that they could come back later for it," Daniel Fisher, a University of Michigan paleontologist who led the excavation, said in a statement.

  • Russian missiles aimed at Syria crashed in Iran: US official

    Four Russian cruise missiles aimed at targets in Syria crashed in Iran, a US official said Thursday, as regime troops backed by Lebanon's Hezbollah pressed a "vast offensive" against rebels in the war-torn country's west. The missiles were thought to be among a salvo fired Wednesday from Russian warships in the Caspian as part of a nine-day-old air war targeting foes of President Bashar al-Assad. Russia hit back at the claims, saying all the shots were on target, and the defence ministry posted a graphic on its website showing 26 missiles flying over Iran and Iraq before striking inside Syria.
