  • Bucks snap losing streak with win over Celtics

    Khris Middleton's free throw with 0.6 seconds left saved the Milwaukee Bucks from overtime and snapped a five-game losing streak with a 112-111 victory over the Boston Celtics at the Bradley Center. Middleton finished with 20 points for the Bucks, who got 29 points and 12 rebounds from center Greg Monroe. Monroe's hook shot with a second to play seemed to give the Bucks the lead for good, but Jerryd Bayless was whistled for a foul on the other end, and Kelly Olnyk sank two free throws to tie the game at 111.

  • Trump, Sanders win big in New Hampshire

    Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders decisively won the presidential primaries in New Hampshire, riding a wave of anti-establishment anger in the second key test of the long, unpredictable race for the White House. Major US networks gave the Republican Trump and the self-described democratic socialist Sanders the win, confirming a deflating if expected defeat for Hillary Clinton, who put a brave face on the loss and admitted she had some work to do as the campaign moves south. On the Republican side, Ohio Governor John Kasich staked an early claim to second place, a potentially critical result for him as the GOP works out which mainstream candidate could successfully mount a challenge against the billionaire tycoon.

  • Henry VIII chapel hosts first Catholic service in 450 years

    The sounds of Latin song echoed through the halls of Hampton Court Palace in London for the first Catholic service in more than 450 years to be held in anti-papal King Henry VIII's residence. Cardinal Vincent Nichols, head of the Catholic Church in England and Wales, celebrated the Vespers prayer together with Anglican Bishop of London Richard Chartres in a symbolic gesture of reconciliation. "I think it's a very remarkable moment," Nichols told AFP ahead of the service in the palace's Chapel Royal, which is still administered directly by the Church of England's head, Queen Elizabeth II. "One historian said Henry VIII would be spinning in his grave at the thought of what is going on this evening," said Nichols, who wore a cardinal's traditional scarlet vestments and zucchetto skullcap.
