  • ISIS release shocking footage of the moment a 'gay' man was thrown to his death

    ISIS have released a new set of shocking photographs showing the moment a gay man was thrown from a roof before being stoned to death. The reprehensible murder was carried out in the Islamic State capital of Raqqa in Syria, after the man faced a ‘trial’ in an Islamic State court. In the original video of the man’s death, a bearded militant can be seen holding a megaphone, and announces the man’s death sentence, before denouncing him as ‘the child of Lot’, a reference to teachings in both the Qur’an and the Bible about the apparent ‘sinfulness’ of homosexuality.

PEGIDA has drawn large crowds in Germany to protest against what it calls the "Islamisation" of Europe, and small demonstrations have also taken place in Austria and Sweden. Police in the city of Newcastle, northeast England, said five men were arrested "for isolated incidents" but insisted both the PEGIDA march and the Newcastle Unites protest passed off smoothly.

  • UK blocks Russian oligarchs' deal to buy North Sea fields

    Britain has blocked a deal by Russian billionaires, Mikhail Fridman and German Khan, to buy 12 oil and gas fields in the North Sea as part of their acquisition of Germany's oil firm DEA from RWE (LSE: 0HA0.L - news) , citing possible sanctions against Russia.

  • F1 news: Barcelona F1 test: Mercedes tops penultimate day with Hamilton

    Mercedes flexed its muscle ahead of the new Formula 1 season again on Saturday, as Lewis Hamilton topped the times on the penultimate day of testing in Barcelona. Having spent the first half of the afternoon in the garage as the team applied what it called an 'experimental' set-up, Hamilton finished with a soft tyre lap faster than Williams and Ferrari achieved on super-softs. When he initially emerged on the medium tyre just before 3pm, the world champion lapped within a second of Felipe Massa and Kimi Raikkonen's super-soft efforts, which were set amid a flurry of qualifying simulations before lunch. Hamilton's first taste of F1's 2015 soft rubber yielded a 1m23.262s, just 0.386s shy of Massa's morning time, but there was more to come.
