    A man suspected of robbery was shot and killed by the police in Los Angeles on Sunday during a confrontation that was captured on video in a downtown homeless encampment. The four-minute video of the fatal encounter and its aftermath was taken by a bystander and uploaded to Facebook.

  • Jennifer O’Connell: Men, keep your wandering hands to yourselves

    It’s unclear if John Travolta or the US vice-president Joe Biden ever saw Dirty Dancing. It came out in 1987, when Biden was working himself up for his first bid for the US Democratic presidential nomination and Travolta was getting together with Kelly Preston, so it’s possible they were both preoccupied (although I like to think Travolta might have dragged Kelly there on a date).

  • Man shot dead by LA police struggled for control of officer's gun, say police

    In a fatal encounter captured on video, three Los Angeles police officers shot and killed a man during what authorities claim was a struggle over one of the officer's guns. The graphic video widely circulated on social media within a few hours of the incident brought attention to the death of the man, who wound up wrestling with police amid the tents, sleeping bags and rubbish of Skid Row, where many of the city's homeless stay. Other recent deaths during police actions in New York and in Ferguson, Missouri, and the lack of prosecution of the officers involved, have brought nationwide protest. The three officers, one of whom is a sergeant, shot the man as they struggled on the ground for control of one of the police officer's weapons, after a stun gun proved ineffective, Los Angeles Police Department Cmdr Andrew Smith said. q

  • ISIS launch major attack on Samarra ahead of Iraqi government offensive

    ISIS suicide bombers and fighters struck targets in Samarra in northern Iraq on Saturday, where security forces and their Shi'ite militia allies have been gathering for a counter offensive against the Islamic militants. Security officials and residents said the attack on Samarra was launched early Saturday when two ISIS militant bombers blew up their cars in the northern area of Sur Shnas. A man drove a Humvee rigged with explosives into the south of the city and detonated it at the same time, while ISIS fighters attacked security forces to the west with sniper fire, mortars and rocket propelled grenades. Thousands of Iraqi troops and fighters from Shi'ite militias known as Hashid Shaabi (Popular Mobilisation) have been gathering in Samarra for a campaign to expel ISIS from nearby strongholds on the Tigris River, including the city of Tikrit 50-kilometres (30-miles) to the north.

  • Relief for Padraig Harrington as winless run ends in Florida

    Padraig Harrington won his first PGA Tour event since the 2008 US PGA Championship with a play-off victory over Daniel Berger at the Honda Classic. The Irishman needed a birdie on the last to secure his place in the play-off with a 70 after a double bogey on 17 had given Berger the outright lead. After both men claimed routine pars on 18 in the play-off, Harrington hit his tee shot close and two-putted on 17 while Berger found the water off the tee and recorded a double-bogey five. The victory, which also hands Harrington a place at the US Masters next month and sees his world ranking jump from 297 to 82, is his first on a major worldwide tour since his triumph at Oakland Hills, with his past two wins coming on the Asian Tour. q
