    SINGAPORE (Reuters) - With monitor lizards, snakes, and bats prowling their parks, residents of tropical Singapore are no strangers to the occasional animal ambush. But it's not the iguanas or squirrels that have locals up in arms -- it's the monkeys. Gangs of long-tailed macaque monkeys have been causing havoc in housing estates bordering nature reserves; stealing food and brawling on the streets. "They roam the estate in groups of up to 20 &- rampaging the estate and turning over dustbins," one irate local wrote to the national paper in October. "They enter the house, open cupboards, steal food and...

    Stressed out and anxious in Beirut By Hugh Sykes BBC News, Beirut For many in Beirut the bombing feels like collective punishment People keep asking me, "Do you know when it will stop?" I shrug my shoulders, and say: "Your guess is as good as mine." Then they ask: "But Beirut - will they bomb Beirut again?" "What would be the point?" I reply. Then they bombed Beirut again. Dozens of displaced children living in a school in a quiet neighbourhood near the city centre heard terrifying loud bangs in the middle of the night. Four massive thumps one night,...

    MONTERREY, Mexico - The former police chief of the border city of Nuevo Laredo on Friday said he resigned because he was tired from the stress of working in a city dominated by drug cartels fighting a bloody turf war. Omar Pimentel, 38, resigned late Wednesday, hours after police found three charred bodies dumped by the side of a road leading into Nuevo Laredo. Police did not immediately know how the bodies got there or who was behind the killings. "The truth is that I was tired. It's a tough job and with so much pressure that it becomes mentally...

    In Iraq, where nights are long for a happily married soldier, Command Sgt. Maj. Douglas Sandstrom yearned for the day he could put the war behind him and get home to his beloved wife and kids. After a year away, he'd pictured a return to wedded bliss. Instead, he felt "alienated and unimportant." His wife of 20-plus years, always an independent woman, had become, by necessity, the matriarch-in-charge. During his absence, she learned to run the household like clockwork without him. When their two sons, one a teen, the other a first-grader, needed guidance or advice, they'd automatically turn to...

    LATELY, IT SEEMS, we’re just not in the mood. We’re overworked, anxious about the economy—and we have to drive our kids to way too many T-Ball games. Or maybe it’s all those libido-dimming antidepressants we’re taking. We resent spouses who never pick up the groceries or their dirty socks. And if we actually find we have 20 minutes at the end of the day—after bath time and story time and juice-box time and e-mail time—who wouldn’t rather zone out to Leno than have sex? Sure, passion ebbs and flows in even the healthiest of relationships, but judging from the conversation...
