  • Torn-up sick notes show crash pilot should have been grounded

    By Tom Käckenhoff DUESSELDORF, Germany (Reuters) - German authorities said on Friday they had found torn-up sick notes showing that the pilot who crashed a plane into the French Alps was suffering from an illness that should have grounded him on the day of the tragedy. French prosecutors believe Andreas Lubitz, 27, locked himself alone in the cockpit of the Germanwings Airbus A320 on Tuesday and deliberately steered it into a mountain, killing all 150 people on board. "Documents with medical contents were confiscated that point towards an existing illness and corresponding treatment by doctors," said the prosecutors' office in Duesseldorf, where the co-pilot lived and where the doomed flight from Barcelona was heading.

  • Isis war on Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi is huge PR own goal

    It is rare that you find similarities between the leafy boulevards and smart cafes of Jerusalem's Jaffa Street and the hectic, traffic-snarled chaos of Ramallah's Al Manara Square, but on El Clasico matchdays the flags in both Israel and Palestine are the same – blue, red and white. The one thing (perhaps the only thing) that Israelis and Palestinians of all stripes can agree on is a love for either Real Madrid or Barcelona, and the few times a year that the Spanish titans meet are the times when the heavy and often ugly tension that so often hangs in the air in both cities is refreshingly absent. A love for Spanish football is something that applies throughout the Middle East and whether you are a Westerner, Arab, Kurd or Jew, you will be expected to come down on one side of the El Clasico divide, and be prepared to defend your choice forcefully and convincingly.

  • 10 Incredible What-Ifs That Could Have Changed The Course Of History

    There will never be a definitive answer to any of these questions – but that is the beauty of “what ifs”, they can be applied to just about every single scenario, and most particularly with key historical events. It does not take a genius to workout that it the odd decision had been made differently here or there, or if certain people have not been elevated to positions of power then history could have taken a very different course. What if Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte had invaded the British colony of Australia?

    The Succession to the Crown Act came into force on Thursday 26 March, marking the end of male primogeniture across the Commonwealth of Nations.
