    US Mexico envoy Carlos Pascual quits amid Wikileaks row



    US Ambassador to Mexico Carlos Pascual has resigned amid a row over leaked diplomatic cables in which he doubted Mexico's ability to tackle drug gangs.
    The dispute flared last month when Mexican President Felipe Calderon accused Mr Pascual of "ignorance".

    He said the US cables, released by Wikileaks in December, had harmed ties.
    The US is backing Mexico's war against drug-trafficking with more than $1bn (600m) in equipment and training.

    The two countries have also increasingly been sharing intelligence in a bid to tackle the drug gangs as violence continues to take a heavy toll in Mexico, with more than 34,000 killed since late 2006.

    Hong Kong murder probe over death of Briton Janet Gilson



    Police in Hong Kong have launched a murder inquiry after the body of a British woman was discovered in a flat.

    She has been named as 64-year-old Janet Gilson, a Salvation Army worker from Leigh-on-Sea, Essex.

    A 29-year-old man was arrested at the city's main ferry harbour and is being questioned by detectives.

    Ms Gilson - found at her niece's property on Lamma Island - reportedly suffered head injuries but police could not confirm if she had died from them.

    She had arrived in Hong Kong on 6 March and was last seen on Tuesday in the village of Tai Yuen Village.

    Her body was found in the flat, three days after she was reported missing by her niece.

    Pastor jailed for trafficking African child 'slaves'



    A church pastor has been jailed for 11 and a half years after being found guilty of trafficking children into the UK for use as domestic "slaves" at her home in Barking, east London.

    Lucy Adeniji brought two children and a 21-year-old woman to the UK from Africa illegally and used them as servants.

    She was convicted of 17 different counts at Isleworth Crown Court.
    The mother-of-five is the first person to be jailed for trafficking children into the UK for domestic servitude.

    In a case that has been likened to modern-day slavery, Adeniji smuggled the three victims into Britain on false passports, and used them as servants at her home in Ray Gardens, Barking.

    An illegal immigrant herself, Adeniji, 44 - originally from Nigeria - had told the victims' parents they would have a better life in the UK, but instead viciously beat them if they failed to please her.

    Vitali Klitschko sees off Odlanier Solis challenge





    Vitali Klitschko retained his WBC heavyweight title by knocking out Cuba's former Olympic champion Odlanier Solis in the first round in Cologne.
    The Ukrainian, 39, caught his opponent with a decent shot towards the end of the round and Solis appeared to suffer a knee injury as he went down.

    Klitschko was initially furious that Solis was not carrying on and 19,000 watching fans also voiced their anger.

    But the referee ruled that the Cuban was unable to continue the fight.
    Solis, 30, went into the ring with a perfect 17-0 pro record (12 by KO), and began confidently enough.

    Having watched the fight it's not difficult to understand the crowds feeling of being cheated of a top billing event.

    Solis seemed to go down after being hit by an invisible glove, then claimed that he had hurt his leg and was unable to continue. 17 wins from 17 fights? Only if they had all been against Julian Clarey

    Journalist wanted in Sophie Toscan du Plantier murder case to be extradited



    Ireland's high court has cleared the way for the extradition of an English journalist to France over the murder of a French film-maker more than 14 years ago.
    Ian Bailey is wanted by French authorities in relation to the killing of Sophie Toscan du Plantier, who was beaten to death in Cork in December 1996.

    Bailey, 53, of Schull, County Cork, was arrested during the initial police investigation but was never charged and has denied any involvement in the killing.

    Toscan du Plantier, 39, was found with severe injuries outside her holiday home at Toormore, near Schull, two days before Christmas 1996.The savage nature of the killing shocked the quiet French expatriate community of west Cork where the well-connected film-maker, whose late husband was a friend of the former French president Jacques Chirac, had chosen to live.

    Like Toscan du Plantier, Bailey moved to Ireland in the 1990s to seek a new life in one of the republic's most idyllic coastal regions. A former freelance journalist who had a number of articles published in the Irish Times, Bailey has since graduated with a law degree and successfully sued a number of British and Irish newspapers for libel for linking him to the murder.

    Farewell Knut



    Polar bear cub Knut plays in the Berlin zoo in this undated picture, released on March 2, 2007. Knut, born on December 5, 2006, had to be hand fed every four hours by zoo employee Thomas Doerflein after its mother Tosca refused the baby.























    Polar bear Knut eats his 'birthday cake' during his second birthday celebrations in his enclosure at the Berlin Zoo December 5, 2008.






    Female polar bear Giovanna (L) and male polar bear Knut play in their enclosure at Berlin zoo October 6, 2009.









    A woman places a rose at the polar bear enclosure in Berlin zoo, March 20, 2011. Knut, the polar bear who became a global celebrity as a cute cub, died in Berlin zoo aged just four. Knut, the first polar bear born at the zoo for more than 30 years, was rejected by his mother and fed instead by his keeper Thomas Doerflein. Thousands of visitors came to watch keeper and cub playing together, and Knut's fame soon spread around the world. The cause of death was unknown and he will undergo an autopsy.

    It isn't a fruitful tactic. Torres - who, let's not forget, was a record-breaking marksman in his first 50 games for Liverpool - has barely had a peek at goal






    It takes until the 78th minute for David Luiz to break Manchester City's resilient defence. He beats Joe hart with a header from inside the box following Didier Drogba's left-wing free-kick






    In injury-time, Ramires skips through City's back-line and dispatches the second goal to ensure a 2-0 win

    Akira Ab, father of rescued 16-year-old Jin Abe, checks on his son at the Red Cross hospital in Ishinomaki city, Miyagi prefecture, Japan, on Monday, March 21. One day earlier, Jin and Akira's 80-year-old mother Sumi Abe were rescued from their collapsed home, nine days after a massive earthquake and tsunami. The story of survival provided some rare good news as the death toll from the March 11 earthquake and tsunami continued to climb.

    Demonstrators gather around a bonfire to celebrate Newroz in Ankara, March 21. The Newroz has traditionally been used as an opportunity to highlight separatist demands by Kurdish rebels and police had to intensify security against possible violence as tensions run high ahead of nationwide general elections. Newroz, the Farsi-language word for "new year", is an ancient Persian festival, celebrated on the first day of spring in Central Asian republics, Iraq, Turkey, Afghanistan and Iran.
