Sarkozy tells Obama Netanyahu is a 'liar'

FRENCH President Nicolas Sarkozy branded Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu “a liar” in a private conversation with US President Barack Obama that was accidentally broadcast to journalists during last week’s G20 summit in Cannes.

“I cannot bear Netanyahu, he’s a liar,” Sarkozy told Obama, unaware that the microphones in their meeting room had been switched on, enabling reporters in a separate location to listen in to a simultaneous translation.

“You’re fed up with him, but I have to deal with him even more often than you,” Obama replied, according to the French interpreter.

The technical gaffe is likely to cause great embarrassment to all three leaders as they look to work together to intensify international pressure on Iran over its nuclear ambitions

US empties biggest Iraq base and takes saddam's toilet

THE US military is vacating Saddam Hussein’s ornate palaces at its war headquarters in Baghdad and will turn the property over to Iraq next month, but Saddam’s prison toilet is leaving with the Americans.

The stainless steel commode and a reinforced steel door have been removed from the cell where the dictator spent two years before his 2006 execution and is destined for a military police museum in the United States.

“We’re not taking anything that the Iraqis had. We are only taking stuff that we put in, we utilised, and when we didn’t need it any more, we took it home,” Lieutenant Colonel Jerry Brooks, a US military historian, said on a tour of the site on Monday.

Boxer Frazier, Ali's greatest foe, dies

JOE Frazier, the relentless slugger who became the heavyweight champion of the world and earned boxing immortality with three epic battles against Muhammad Ali, died this morning at the age of 67, his personal manager said.

‘Smokin Joe’, who was the first boxer to beat Ali, died in Philadelphia a month after being diagnosed with liver cancer. Leslie Wolff, Frazier’s personal manager, confirmed his death.

Frazier won the Olympic heavyweight boxing gold medal for the United States in 1964 in Tokyo and held the world heavyweight boxing crown from 1970 to 1973.

He is eternally linked with Ali thanks to their trilogy of fights in the 1970s, among the most famous in the history of the sport. Frazier won the first and Ali took the next two.

Nicosia planning on Capital of Culture win

Nicosia municipality has launched its 2017 European capital of culture bid under the slogan “Planning for the future”

According to the bid’s artistic director Achilleas Kentonis, Nicosia’s proposal takes into account the “universality of culture” and is based on six pillars; architecture, arts and cultural heritage, economy, science, environment and civil society. 

“We view culture from a different approach,” Kentonis told the Cyprus News Agency: “(It is) the medium that shapes our thoughts in relation to the others, the nature and the society, so culture is a pretty expanded notion”.
