    North Korea shot back today at U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who recently likened the isolated regime to a child demanding attention..... 'We cannot but regard Mrs. Clinton as a funny lady as she likes to utter such rhetoric, unaware of the elementary etiquette in the international community.' The ministry added her words 'suggests she is by no means intelligent.' Sometimes she looks like a primary schoolgirl and sometimes a pensioner going shopping'. The ministry added: "Anyone making misstatements has to pay for them," but did not elaborate.

    There should only have been one winner. On the riverbank was Jessica Wanstall, 4ft 10in tall weighing less than six stone (84lb) and something of a tiddler among anglers. In the river was a monster, a near 9ft catfish that hit the scales at a record 13st 8lb (193lb). But despite its size and whiskery age, the fish was no match for the skills of 11-year-old Jessica who waged a 20-minute battle to land her prize Jessica, from Sittingbourne, Kent, hooked the fish during a trip with her father to the Ebro River in North-East Spain. She said: ‘I didn’t...

    Responding to threats from the Taliban, at least 10 girls' schools have shut down near Kunduz in northern Afghanistan. Visiting the schools is a dangerous proposition -- a trip leading directly into the heart of Islamist territory. When the deputy director of Aqtash High School talks of the government, he isn't referring to Hamid Karzai's central government in Kabul. Nor does he refer to the provincial administration in Kunduz. "The Taliban are our government," Bashir says. "They have taken over our region, their commanders give the orders here." Bashir is standing in a dusty classroom on the ground floor of...

The girl's mother works at a French Quarter bar. She has insisted the Jell-O cups were non-alcoholic. A school system spokesman says the girl told her principal that her mom told her to take the shots to school and sell them "to...

"I held back," Mr. Kerry told reporters early this morning, on the plane ride after the game. "He was very nervous. I tried to lob it gently."
