Egypt issues arrest warrant for popular TV satirist for allegedly insulting Islam
 "CAIRO - Egypt's state prosecutors ordered the arrest Saturday of a popular television satirist for allegedly insulting Islam and the country's leader, in a move that government opponents say is aimed at silencing critics of Islamist President Mohammed Morsi. The arrest warrant for against Bassem Youssef, who has come to be known as Egypt's Jon Stewart, followed an order earlier this week by the country's top prosecutor to arrest five prominent pro-democracy activists in what the opposition has characterized as a widening campaign against dissent."

CBC News - White House taking North Korea's missile threats seriously, Mar 30, 2013

Secretary of Defence Chuck Hagel said the U.S. was preparing for a potential missile attack from North Korea as the situation in the Korean Peninsuala remains tense.
"The White House said Saturday it is taking seriously new threats by North Korea but also noted Pyongyang's history of "bellicose rhetoric." North Korea warned Seoul on Saturday that the Korean Peninsula had entered "a state of war." It also threatened to shut down a border factory complex that is the last major symbol of cooperation between the Koreas. "We've seen reports of a new and unconstructive statement from North Korea. We take these threats seriously and remain in close contact with our South Korean allies," said Caitlin Hayden, a spokeswoman for the White House National Security Council. "But, we would also note that North Korea has a long history of bellicose rhetoric and threats and today's announcement follows that familiar pattern.""

 "Scientists studying a collection of 35 meteorites that landed in Morocco in 2012 say that a strange green rock among the group is likely from Mercury, Space.com reports. If they are correct, Meteorite NWA 7325 is the first known chunk of Mercury to be identified on Earth. Magnetic intensity is shared by rocks and the planet they originate from. NWA 7325 has a lower magnetic intensity than other space rocks scientists have seen, Anthony Irving, a meteorite scientist from the University of Washington said at the 44th annual Lunar and Planetary Science Conference in the Woodlands, Texas, this month, according to Space.com. The meteorite's magnetic intensity most closely matches the low magnetism found on Mercury, which Nasa's Messenger spacecraft has measured, Irving said. Furthermore, the space rock has a low iron content, and scientists believe Mercury's surface is also low in iron. The green meteorite and the other space rocks it was found with are about 4.56 billion years old, Irving said."

CHANNEL 24 - Justin's monkey quarantined in Germany, Mar 30, 2013


 "Berlin - A German official says Justin Bieber had to leave a monkey in quarantine after arriving in the country last week without the necessary papers for the animal. The 19-year-old singer arrived at Munich airport last Thursday. Customs spokesperson Thomas Meister said on Saturday that when he went through customs he didn't have the documentation necessary to bring the capuchin monkey into the country - so the animal had to stay with authorities. Bieber performed in Munich on Thursday night on the latest leg of his European tour. He's giving several concerts in Germany and Austria over the next week. Bieber had a trying stay in London recently, first being booed by fans when he arrived late at a concert, then struggling with his breathing and fainting backstage at a show."
