A court-appointed bankruptcy trustee asked a federal judge this week to schedule a new court date in a case against Tony Rodham, the brother of Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., accused of failing to repay $109,000 in loans from a carnival company whose owners received controversial pardons issued by President Bill Clinton in the last hours of his presidency.

A Jordanian man fatally shot his 17-year-old daughter whom he suspected of having sex despite a medical exam that proved her chastity, an official said Thursday. The man surrendered to police hours after the killing, saying he had done it for family honour.

Mahmoud Abbas, the Palestinian president, and Tzipi Livni, the Israeli foreign minister, have shared hopes for a revived Middle East peace process at a meeting of business and political leaders in Davos.

The Middle East looks so peaceful when you look at it from a ski holiday place in Switzerland!!!

The US military has given the first public display of what it says is a revolutionary heat-ray weapon to repel enemies or disperse hostile crowds.

Are they going to use it with the Democrats as well?

************************

An Ethiopian soldier has been killed and another seriously wounded after unknown gunmen opened fire on troops at a market in Kismayo, southern Somalia.

I suppose for an invasion army natural death is out of question!!!

************************

A Russian man who tried to sell a small piece of weapons-grade uranium has been arrested in Georgia, officials say. The man was detained in the Georgian capital Tbilisi last summer in a sting operation involving US agents, the Georgian interior minister said.

What’s in you bag son? Oh nothing, just an atomic bomb!!! You can’t even laugh with this!!!

************************

Hundreds of Chinese textile workers are on strike in the Romanian town of Bacau, north-east of Bucharest.

Is this what they call, globalisation?

************************

Michael Jackson's former lawyer is seeking $2 million (£1 million) in damages for being secretly recorded on a plane with the singer. Mark Geragos is suing charter firm XtraJet after he was taped with the singer in November 2003.

What? Was he singing? Thriller?

************************

The controversy over alleged racism in Big Brother saved the show from being dull, says Channel 4 chief Kevin Lygo. "This was in danger of being the most boring BB that we'd had in many years, maybe ever," the channel's director of television told Broadcast magazine.

Dude, you are sick!!!

************************

Glastonbury organiser Michael Eavis has confirmed The Who is set to perform at his annual Somerset music festival.
