Common fiber a 'true superfood'

A fiber found in most fruit and vegetables may help ward off cancer, experts believe.

Vegetables

A fiber in fruit and vegetables may play a role in fighting cancer

A fiber found in most fruit and vegetables may help ward off cancer, experts believe. An ongoing study by the Institute of Food Research suggested pectin, a fiber found in everything from potato to plums, helped to fight the disease. Lead researcher Professor Vic Morris said the likely effect of the fiber meant there was no need for people to rely on so-called superfoods. Foods such as blueberries and spinach have been linked to a host of benefits. But Professor Morris said it was probably better to eat a wide range of fruit and vegetables.

Scaramanga’s golden gun is stolen

The £80,000 golden gun used in the 1974 James Bond film The Man With The Golden Gun has been stolen from studios in Hertfordshire. The golden gun is worth £80,000. The gun was noticed to be missing from Elstree Studios on Friday. It was made for the film starring Sir Roger Moore and Christopher Lee.

Search for the origin of 'yeti hair' ends up with a goat

The goral goat - it took several scientific tests to make the connection

Scientists in the US who have examined hairs claimed to belong to a yeti in India say that in fact they belong to a species of Himalayan goat. They say that DNA tests on the hairs - obtained from the north-east Indian state of Meghalaya - show that they are from a goat known as a Himalayan Goral. The rough-haired creature has a grey-brown coat and is between 95-130cm (37-51in) in length. It was not previously thought to roam so far south of its known habitat.

Dubai stink, due to disposal of raw sewage to beach front

Stench of success Rapid growth puts strain on Dubai sewage system - Down on the beach next to the Dubai Offshore Sailing Club and the fishing harbour there's a stink: raw sewage is flowing into the sea close to prime tourist beaches.  The putrid problem is caused by the illegal dumping of untreated sewage in Dubai 's inland storm drain network, as the city's rapid growth outstrips its infrastructure. At Dubai 's only sewage treatment plant there are long queues and serious delays. Truck drivers who are paid by the load to collect waste from the city's septic tanks wait for several hours to dispose of their foul cargo legally. There simply is not the capacity to deal with all the human waste the city dwellers produce.

British troops 'should go home'

British troops should leave Iraq because they are no longer needed to maintain security, Iraq 's prime minister has said. Nouri al-Maliki told the Times there might still be a need for their experience in training Iraqi forces. He said a "page had been turned" in the country's relationship with the UK . But he criticized Britain 's decision to move forces from a base at a palace in Basra to an airport on the edge of the city last year. He said: "They stayed away from the confrontation, which gave the gangs and militia the chance to control the city.

Lotto scam 'fuels Jamaica crime'

It all started with Great Nigerian Con Game - Police in Jamaica say a lottery scam targeting US citizens is helping to arm gangs with powerful weapons. An American grandmother killed herself after losing nearly a quarter of a million dollars. Detectives say criminals are buying expensive high-powered weapons with the money sent by people who believe they have won a sweepstake on the island. Despite attempts by detectives to break the scam for the past few years, it still remains active. The operation is centred around Montego Bay , the country's second city on the north coast.It is similar to schemes that operate in other parts of the world.

Zardari warning over Kashmir dam Pakistan 's president warns of a row with India over the sharing of water from the Chenab river in the disputed Kashmir region. Pakistan President Asif Zardari says relations with India could be harmed over a water sharing dispute in the disputed Kashmir region. India inaugurated the controversial Baglihar hydro-electric dam project in Indian-administered Kashmir on Friday. Pakistan has said the dam would deprive its agricultural regions of irrigation. India says the project is crucial for meeting its power needs. In May 2005, the World Bank appointed an arbitrator to settle the dispute. The committee report was never made public, but both India and Pakistan said it backed their stand.   Also read reports from surrounding areas: Pakistan hit 'kills 35 Taliban'   Markets rally after crisis talks   Bollywood's Bachchan in hospital   Taliban killed in Afghan battles   India gets Christian woman saint   'US missiles' hit Pakistan town
