    Photographers work behind a barrier. The Duggan family had requested the media stay outside the church to allow them to pay their respects in peace

    Manchester City chief executive Garry Cook quits over email




    Manchester City chief executive Garry Cook has resigned over claims he emailed defender Nedum Onuoha's cancer-suffering mother mocking her illness.

    Cook offered his resignation after an investigation by City found "there is foundation" to the allegations.

    He had denied sending the message, claiming his account was hacked.

    The club issued a statement confirming the board had accepted Cook's resignation and that chairman Khaldoon Al-Mubarak had apologised to Dr Onuoha.

    Defender Onuoha's mother, who acts as his agent, had previously sent a message to Marwood and Cook, explaining that while she was "ravaged with cancer" it would not prevent her negotiating on behalf of her son.

    Dr Onuoha then received an email, allegedly from Cook and addressed "Brian", which apparently ridiculed her use of language in describing her illness.

    The email is reported to have read: "Ravaged with it!!...I don't know how you sleep at night. You used to be such a nice man when I worked with you at Nike. G".

    Dr Onuoha told the Sun the email had left her "humiliated and devastated".

    The claims led City's board to launch an investigation and, following its findings, Cook offered his resignation and Khaldoon wrote to Dr Onuoha "to apologise for any distress caused".

    In the statement, Khaldoon said: "Garry has made a remarkable contribution to Manchester City Football Club over the past three years. His judgement in this matter should in no way lead to his accomplishments being overlooked.

    A combination picture shows Wang Gengxiang after he was severely burned in an accident (left) in a picture taken on Sept. 9, and in another photo taken before the accident, on June 1, 2010 (right).




    Gengxiang was hurt in an accident involving a pile of burning straw last winter. Most of the skin on his head was burned off, requiring him to wear a full surgical mask to prevent the scars from becoming infected. He has since become known as "Masked Boy". Doctors say that they cannot continue his skin-graft surgery until his damaged trachea, or windpipe, is strong enough

    A driver of a minivan braves the flood damaged roads in the City of Binghamton, N.Y., Friday, Sept. 9. Northern stretches of the swollen Susquehanna River began receding Friday after days of rainfall from the remnants of Tropical Storm Lee flooded communities from Virginia to New York, leading to evacuation orders for nearly 100,000 people. Some evacuees were allowed back home.

    A group of about 30 protesters broke into the Israeli Embassy in Cairo Friday and dumped hundreds of documents out of the windows after a day of demonstrations outside the building in which crowds swinging sledge hammers and using their bare hands tore apart the embassy's security wall.

    Egyptian security forces made no attempt for hours to intervene.






    Egyptian protesters wave Egyptian flags after climbing up to an apartment affiliated with the Israeli Embassy and taking the Israeli flag down, in Cairo, Egypt, Sept. 9. Hundreds of protesters gathered in front of the building housing the embassy, breaking down a concrete wall meant to protect the building.The protesters were angered over the killing of five Egyptian policemen on the border with Israel.
