Starving North Koreans return to cannibalism
London Telegraph | Submitted by: Black Ops 7
"Cannibalism is increasing in North Korea following another poor harvest and a big cut in international food aid, according to refugees who have fled the stricken country. Aid agencies are alarmed by refugees' reports that children have been killed and corpses cut up by people desperate for food. ... Anyone caught selling human meat faces execution, but in a report compiled by the North Korean Refugees Assistance Fund (NKRAF), one refugee said: 'Pieces of "special" meat are displayed on straw mats for sale. People know where they came from, but they don't talk about it.'"

A second dossier on Saddam's weapons of mass destruction (WMD) which was released five months after the first has been dubbed the 'dodgy dossier' after it emerged much of it was based on a student's PhD thesis."

Little girl in Germany swept away by killer balloon
BBC | Submitted by: Tim Howard
"Severe weather in Germany has left at least a dozen people dead and many others injured after high winds and thunderstorms swept across the country. Those killed included a five-year-old British girl, who was swept away by a helium balloon in a freak accident at a British military show in western Germany. ... The balloon was then torn from its anchors and lifted up into the air, with the young girl in the process becoming entangled in its ropes. The German authorities began a search and police in Hamminkeln, near Wesel -- about 70 km (45 miles) away from the site -- soon reported they had found the balloon and the child's body."

BBC | Submitted by: Tim Howard

Wired cock gives New Zealand police a workout
News Corporation | Submitted by: Tim Howard
"A potentially explosive rooster had New Zealand police running around like headless chickens yesterday. The bird, which had canisters with protruding wires strapped to its wings, was spotted by a member of the public in the Christchurch suburb of Sydenham during the morning.

The chicken was put down, and the contents of the canisters strapped to the body were found to be harmless."

Clergymen not trained in constitutional law
Cincinnati Enquirer | Submitted by: buffaloBill
"A group of ministers and local residents blocked the removal Monday of a three-foot statue bearing the Ten Commandments that stands in front of Peebles High School in Adams County. ... The displays were scheduled to be removed Monday. However, following a 90-minute rally, pastors and local residents locked arms in front of the monument. The Rev. Phil Fulton, of Union Hill Church in Adams County, said he would remain defiant despite the federal court order. 'I am willing to do whatever it takes -- to be arrested or whatever. There is no constitutional background to take these commandments out. This is our religious right. This is our freedom-of-speech right.'" [So we should assume they'd lock arms around a stone monument bearing excerpts from the Koran, or The Satanic Bible for that matter? Didn't think so.]

U.S. printing Iraqi currency bearing Saddam's face
Yahoo! UK | Submitted by: DJ Hi-C
"Everybody wants their money in 250-dinar notes, even though large transactions require sackloads of them to be hauled around. To meet the demand for the smaller notes, the central bank is printing millions, each bearing the picture of a youthful Saddam with neatly combed hair and a smart jacket and tie. ... U.S. and British officials concede it is embarrassing to have to print Saddam banknotes, but say it is better to lose face -- by temporarily keeping his face on the currency -- than fan the anger of Iraqis about the dinars in their pockets."

Newspaper blames Earth Liberation Front for house arsons
Detroit Free Press | Submitted by: Reid Fleming
"A group that uses the Internet to spread its message of using arson and sabotage to save the Earth and hails Unabomber Ted Kaczynski as one of its heroes is terrorizing Michigan." [And just how did the newspaper reach this conclusion?] "The calling card ELF was left in spray-painted letters at the scenes of two arsons that destroyed four luxury homes under construction. [Uh huh.] "'Just because someone spray-paints ELF somewhere is not enough for us to conclude it's ELF-related,' said Greg Stejskal, FBI special agent in charge of the Ann Arbor office, which is investigating house fires in Superior Township." [Well at least the feds have some brains.]

Fonzy gunned down by boyfriend
caledonianrecord.com | Submitted by: BurkeVt
"According to the affidavit in support of the charges, the shooting was recorded by the 911 operator who heard McFarland screaming for police to be sent to his home as shots were fired in the background. ... A female voice, presumably Holderby's, yelled, 'Henry, we've called the police, you better get the fuck out of here.' ... Butson, whose voice was recognized by Devenger, was then heard saying, 'You ruined my life, both of you.' Butson also said, 'Fonzy, love you, this is too bad, it's crazy, it weren't no need of this was it? Huh? Fonzy?, Fonzy?,' followed by the sound of gunshots."
