    Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, November 11) — The anti-graft court ordered on Friday the arrest of Ilocos Norte Representative Imelda Marcos after it found her guilty for seven counts of graft. The 89-year-old Marcos was sentenced to imprisonment for a minimum of six years to a maximum of 11 years. The Sandiganbayan said the former first lady can have a provisional liberty if she posts a cash bond while appealing the conviction. Marcos, who is running for Ilocos Norte governor in the 2019 elections, was also perpetually disqualified from holding public office. But Ombudsman Prosecutor Rey Quilala said she can...

    A Phoenix woman accused of throwing a shoe at Hillary Rodham Clinton during a speech in Las Vegas remains in federal custody after pleading not guilty to two criminal charges. Alison Ernst, 36, entered the pleas to misdemeanor counts of trespassing and violence against a person during her arraignment late Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Las Vegas. U.S. Magistrate Judge Cam Ferenbach then granted the government's request to keep Ernst in federal custody, saying she was a flight risk and danger to the community. Ferenbach raised concerns about Ernst's residency status and mental health condition.

    The woman who fired a shoe at Hillary Clinton after slipping past security was upset when cops arrested her inside a Las Vegas casino, according to a police report. Alison Michelle Ernst, 36, of Phoenix, “appeared to be in an agitated state but aware of what she had just done,” said the report from a Las Vegas police detective. Ernst was charged with disorderly conduct in Thursday’s deja shoe incident, reminiscent of a similar footwear assault on President George W. Bush in Iraq.

The incident happened moments after Clinton took the stage Thursday at an Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries meeting at the Mandalay Bay hotel-casino.

    A man is dead and a woman is facing murder charges for a bizarre stabbing incident in Texas - the suspected murder weapon is a stiletto shoe. Police in Houston say the suspect, 44-year-old Ana Lilia Trujillo, used one of the pointy-heeled shoes to stab the 59-year-old victim in a high-rise luxury condominium building inhabited primarily by faculty and staff at the University of Houston. Authorities are yet to identify the victim, and it's unclear whether he worked at the University.

    ATLANTIC CITY — At first, it seemed like a coincidence, the kind of thing that happens from time to time at a casino, where the same number or same sequence of cards happens twice in a row. But when the players at an April game of mini-baccarat at the Golden Nugget Atlantic City kept seeing the same sequence of cards dealt, over and over and over again, their eyes grew wide and their bets grew bigger, zooming from $10 a hand to $5,000. Forty-one consecutive winning hands later, the 14 players had racked up more than $1.5 million in winnings...

    The Obama Record: After angry Egyptians pelted her motorcade with shoes, chanting "Leave!," Secretary of State Clinton insisted the U.S. wasn't there to take sides. Too late. 'I want to be clear that the United States is not in the business, in Egypt, of choosing winners and losers, even if we could, which of course we cannot," Hillary Clinton intoned earlier this week. Of course, the administration could, and it did, picking and even colluding with the Muslim Brotherhood. And one of its hard-liners, Mohammed Morsi, now sits in the presidential palace, where he refused to shake unveiled Clinton's hand....

US troops gave the man, Ahmed al-Jumaili, first aid before he was taken to hospital by Iraqi police. He was in a stable condition after being treated for a...
