A Ugandan Muslim sheikh and 17 others have been charged with killing two fellow clerics, a case police say is linked to Islamist rebels in Democratic Republic of CongoA Ugandan Muslim sheikh and 17 others have been charged with killing two fellow clerics, a case police said Friday is linked to Islamist rebels in Democratic Republic of Congo. "There's a link definitely to the Allied Democratic Forces," police spokesman Fred Enanga told AFP, referring to the small group of Ugandan-led ADF rebels, who have terrorised pockets of eastern DR Congo for the last two decades. Sheikh Muhammad Yunus Kamoga, the leader of Uganda's Muslim Tabliq group, and 17 others were charged Thursday for the murders of two clerics, and the attempted murder of a third earlier this month, according to the government-run New Vision newspaper.

Greek vote stokes anti-austerity mood in Ireland

Protesters stand outside the government buildings as Irish Finance Minister Michael Noonan announces the 2015 budget in Dublin on October 14, 2014Ireland's economy is speeding ahead and unemployment is dropping, but the coming to power of a radical new government in fellow eurozone member Greece has revived debate about the pain of austerity. Support for opposition parties -- including for the radical left-wing Sinn Fein party -- has been surging for months on the back of their anti-austerity stance, and Syriza's win in Greece is an extra boost. Sinn Fein leader Gerry Adams spoke to Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras this week, backing the new Greek leader's campaign for a European Debt conference like the one that wrote off German debt after World War II. "Austerity has heaped severe hardship on citizens in Greece, Ireland and across Europe," Adams said, according to a statement on Sinn Fein's website.

Andy Murray defends fiancee over televised outburst

Andy Murray plays a shot during a training session on day 12 of the Australian Open in Melbourne on January 30, 2015Andy Murray has defended his fiancee after she was caught on camera during his tense Australian Open semi-final win apparently swearing at the Tomas Berdych camp courtside. Tension between Murray and Berdych spilled over off court with the Scot's wife-to-be Kim Sears caught up with the emotion of Thursday's match. Murray, who beat the Czech seventh seed 6-7 (6/8), 6-0, 6-3, 7-5 to reach his fourth Australian Open final, attributed the atmosphere to the pre-match focus on his former coach, Dani Vallverdu, who is now working with Berdych.

The new Candy Crush? Chinese language apps make learning a game

A new generation of Chinese language apps that are using tricks traditionally employed by online games to get users hooked on learningPhilipp Mattheis knew his gaming app was addictive when he realised he kept checking his phone -- hooked by the brightly-coloured reminders telling him to play again or risk falling from the triple-figure level he had reached. Yet gripping the German journalist's attention was not Candy Crush, but one of a new generation of Chinese language apps that are using tricks traditionally employed by online games to get users hooked on learning. For years the thrill of studying a new language has been tempered by the tedium of rote learning and repetition required to be truly accomplished -- particularly the case for memorising a character-based system -- but now language apps are increasingly turning to the same praise, reward and challenge format that games such as Candy Crush use to such devastating success. Shanghai-based Mattheis is an avid user of the app Memrise, which offers courses in standard Mandarin Chinese and several dialects, and has 25 million users.

Katy Perry's Super Bowl promise: lion, sharks and live singing

NFL: Super Bowl XLIX-Halftime Show Press Conference(Reuters) - Pop singer Katy Perry on Thursday teased a lion, sharks and at least some live singing during her Super Bowl halftime performance, the most-watched dozen minutes annually on U.S. television. The "Roar" singer wouldn't divulge much about her Sunday gig at the NFL title game but did say to expect an unnamed "old school" female singer as a surprise performer in addition to rocker Lenny Kravitz. Two years ago, the run-up to Beyonce's halftime performance was overshadowed by her lip-synched performance at President Barack Obama's inauguration. Perry will perform her hits at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona, at the Super Bowl match-up of the New England Patriots and the Seattle Seahawks.

(AP Photo/Rich Pedroncelli, File)WASHINGTON (AP) — The American public and U.S. scientists are light-years apart on science issues. And 98 percent of surveyed scientists say it's a problem that we don't know what they're talking about.

Asteroid Miners May Get Help from Metal-Munching Microbes

Asteroid Miners May Get Help from Metal-Munching MicrobesAsteroid mining may become a multispecies affair. The asteroid-mining firm Deep Space Industries (DSI) is investigating the feasibility of injecting bioengineered microbes into space rocks far from Earth, to get a jump on processing their valuable resources. "You could come back [to the asteroids] in 10 to 20 years and have a preprocessed pile of materials," Joseph Grace, of DSI and NASA's Ames Research Center, told Space.com last month at the annual fall meeting of the American Geophysical Union (AGU) in San Francisco. Over time, the microbes — genetically engineered to process metals efficiently — would break down harmful compounds within the asteroid and/or transform resources into different chemical states that are more amenable to extraction.

Medical aid group MSF says pulls out of parts of Sudan

A medical staff attends to a malnourished child at a MSF hospital in an IDP camp inside the U.N. base in MalakalMedecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) has pulled out of some conflict-hit parts of Sudan due to a lack of cooperation from authorities, the medical charity said on Thursday, as the country suffers increasing violence. Sudan has faced a rebellion in Darfur since 2003 and a separate but linked insurgency in Blue Nile and South Kordofan since the secession of South Sudan in 2011. The group said that total denial of access to Blue Nile, forced closure of activities in East Darfur and administrative obstacles in South Darfur had made its work in those areas impossible, accusations that Sudan has denied.
