    PM Abadi, Sadr alliance brings Iraq government closer

    Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi and cleric Moqtada al-Sadr said on Saturday their political blocs would enter into an alliance, bringing Iraq one step closer to forming a new government after an election marred by low turnout and fraud allegations.

    Forget Cristiano Ronaldo's statue... birthday boy Lionel Messi has a lifesize chocolate sculpture!

    With most statue-based football tales of late involving Cristiano Ronaldo, it only makes sense that Lionel Messi is next on the scene as World Cup fever hits Russia. When Moscow confectioners found out Messi would be celebrating his birthday during the World Cup, they decided he needed a gift that measured up - a life-size chocolate sculpture in his likeness. A team of five workers at Moscow's Altufyevo Confectionery worked for nearly a week to carve the sculpture in 60 kg (132 lbs) of chocolate to mark the Argentina forward's 31st birthday on Sunday.

    Crude oil pours into river after train derails in US

    A freight train that derailed in Iowa is leaking crude oil into a river, raising concerns that water supplies downstream could be contaminated. Some of the tankers were damaged, causing them to gush oil into flooded fields and the rain-swollen Rock River. “We are containing the oil that was spilled as close to the incident as possible using containment booms and recovering it with skimmers and vacuum trucks,” said BNSF Railway spokesman Andy Williams.
