    US soldier admits killing unarmed Afghans for sport



    Jeremy Morlock, 23, tells US military court he was part of a 'kill team' that faked combat situations to murder Afghan civilians

    An American soldier has pleaded guilty to being part of a "kill team" who deliberately murdered Afghan civilians for sport last year.

    Army Specialist Jeremy Morlock, 23, told a military court he had helped to kill three unarmed Afghans. "The plan was to kill people, sir," he told an army judge in Fort Lea, near Seattle, after his plea.

    The case has caused outraged headlines around the world. In a series of videotaped confessions to investigators, some of which have been broadcast on American television, Morlock detailed how he and other members of his Stryker brigade set up and faked combat situations so that they could kill civilians who posed no threat to them. Four other soldiers are still to come to trial over the incidents.

    Portugal in crisis after prime minister resigns over austerity measures



    Portuguese prime minister José Sócrates has said he has submitted his resignation to the president after parliament rejected his minority Socialist government's latest austerity measures.

    The loss of the vote "has taken away from the government all conditions to govern," Sócrates said. It brings the country closer to needing a bailout.

    Sócrates is said he tendered his resignation to President Aníbal Cavaco Silva tonight, leaving the country in a political limbo that would place further pressure on Portugal's record-level bond yields.

    Sócrates had said before the vote that he would resign if the measures to cut spending and increase taxes – designed to see off a bailout similar to those taken by Greece and Ireland – were rejected.

    Syrian regime launches crackdown by shooting 15 activists dead



    Violence escalated in the southern Syrian city of Deraa as protests entered a sixth day. At least 15 protesters are known to have been shot dead on Wednesday and scores more injured.

    In a sign that the Syrian regime is using a brutal crackdown rather than concessions to quell protests, security forces opened fire on people in three separate incidents, according to human rights activists.

    At 1am on Wednesday morning, at least six people were killed when security forces opened fire on protesters surrounding the Omari mosque, after cutting electricity and communications to the site that has become the focus of demonstrations. During the day, several were reported shot as they attended funerals of victims of the mosque shooting. Syrian security forces later opened fire on scores of young people from surrounding towns as they marched towards Deraa, offering support to the protests, activists said.

    "The government promised it would consider its citizen's demands, and then it decided to attack them," said Mohammed al-Abdullah, a prominent activist in exile in the US who is in close contact with the Deraa protesters. "These were fully prepared and full-scale attacks."

    Night Stalker case: Delroy Grant guilty



    A man has been found guilty of a series of sex attacks on elderly people in south London.

    Dubbed the Night Stalker, Delroy Grant, 53, carried out a series of rapes and sex assaults on 18 victims over 17 years.

    Police have apologised for missed chances to stop Grant.

    They said he was responsible for some of the most "awful and disturbing crimes" in the history of Scotland Yard.

    Commander Simon Foy, head of the Metropolitan Police's homicide and serious crime command, said: "We are deeply sorry for the trauma suffered by all those victims and our failure to bring Grant to justice earlier."

    Ex-MEP Den Dover ordered to pay back £345,000



    A former Conservative MEP expelled by the party over expenses allegations has been ordered to repay £345,289 in "unjustified" claims.

    Den Dover, 72, originally faced a demand for £538,000 the European Parliament said should not have been paid to him.

    But the European Court of Justice has reduced that amount after an appeal.
    Mr Dover stood down as an MEP in 2009 after being expelled by the Tory Party for "gross misconduct".

    The European Parliament launched a probe in 2008 after it emerged Mr Dover had paid nearly £1m to a company, MP Holdings, which included his wife and daughters among its directors.

    The money came from allowances MEPs receive to pay staff salaries and costs.
    The parliament ruled that only £421,156 could be justified in salaries, National Insurance and legitimate staff travel expenses - and the remainder was "without justification".

    Manchester City's Kelvin Etuhu sentenced over casino brawl



    A Manchester City footballer has been jailed for a fight in the street which left a man with a broken jaw.

    Striker Kelvin Etuhu, 22, previously admitted assault occasioning actual bodily harm and affray.

    He was caught on CCTV kicking Owen Fitzpatrick three times after knocking him to the ground with a punch outside Manchester's 235 Casino last February.
    Etuhu, of Abbeycroft Close, Astley, Wigan, was sentenced to eight months in prison at Warrington Crown Court.

    In sentencing, Judge Hale told Etuhu: "You brought yourself up by your bootstraps, you and your family, having come here from Nigeria with nothing but your talent, grit and determination.

    "That is a great credit to you and your family and you have blown it."

    The footballer is the younger brother of Dickson Etuhu, who plays for Fulham.

    Mayan statue sold at Paris auction for $4m is 'fake'



    A Mayan sculpture that fetched 2.9m euros ($4.2m, £2.5m) at a Paris auction is a fake, Mexican officials believe.

    The French auction house Drouot maintains that the statue, of a masked figure carrying a shield, is genuine and more than 1,000 years old.

    But Mexico's National Institute of Anthropology and History says it does not match the style of the period it was supposedly from.

    Another 66 pieces at Monday's auction were also fakes, the institute said.

    Canadian opposition 'to topple Conservative government'



    Canada's three opposition parties say they plan to topple the Conservative government this week, in a vote on the budget or a no-confidence motion.

    The no-confidence vote, due on Friday, stems from a ruling that the government has acted in contempt of Parliament by failing to disclose spending costs.

    A vote on the government's budget plan is expected on Thursday or Friday.
    A defeat for PM Stephen Harper on either vote would trigger Canada's fourth federal election in seven years.

    An election would probably take place on 2 or 9 May.

    Italian Eurofighter jets get ready to land at Trapani-Birgi airbase in Sicily. Even as UN-sanctioned air strikes have continued, Muammar Gaddafi has reportedly resumed his attacks on rebel-held territory.



    Israeli rescue workers carry an injured woman to an ambulance after an explosion near a bus stop in Jerusalem. At least one was killed and dozens were wounded in what appears to be the first militant attack in the city in years.



    Teachers and students are dispered with tear gas in Tegucigalpa, Honduras. Demonstrations over privatizing parts of the educational system have turned increasingly violent and a teacher has been killed.
