Mr Russo couldn’t go though because a group of teenagers were blocking his way, so he honked his horn.

Egyptian chocolate-maker Bahira Galal does not hide her support forEgypt’s army chief, General Abdel Fatah el-Sisi. Customers at her plush boutique in central Cairo are offered a choice between chocolates coated with his face and others embossed with messages of adulation. One carries his official portrait. Another shows him in sunglasses. “Thank you, Sisi, from the bottom of our hearts,” reads a third.

Galal had the idea back in August, shortly after Sisi’s troops cleared a camp of Muslim Brotherhood supporters, killing up to 1,000. There was outcry abroad, but many Egyptians “wanted to show support in whatever way they could”, said Galal, a representive of a large chunk of the Egyptian population who view the Muslim Brotherhood as a terrorist organisation.

EDITORAL: Danes say no to Muslim grandchildren

EDITORAL: Danes say no to Muslim grandchildren

Posted by: Ingrid Carlqvist 20 October, 2013

A fresh opinion poll shows that just 8 percent of Danes would approve of their son or daughter having children with a Muslim. All of 49 percent are negative. Is that an expression of xenophobia or awareness of future problems?

 The Danish daily Berlingske interviews an ”expert” who explains that these figures manifest a lack of knowledge about ”foreigners”. According to Lise-Lotte Duch from Fakti (a women’s organization working for integration), Danes’ reluctance to let Muslims into their families is due to the fact that Danes and Muslims know little of each other.

”One is always afraid of what one doesn’t know. May your grandchildren not celebrate Christmas and may we no longer serve wine to our guests? That’s the sort of things people worry about. We must get to know each other better and overcome insecurity,” says Dutch.

‘There’s no sugar-coating it: the website has been too slow, people have been getting stuck during the application process and no one has been more frustrated by it than me,’ President Obama said.

It takes SEVEN council road workers to change a lightbulb… one to climb a ladder and six to watch

It could be the punchline to an old joke, and yet this picture taken on a dual carriageway shows that it takes seven council road workers just to change one light bulb.

The photograph shows six men in high-visibility jackets standing around with their arms crossed as one colleague scales a ladder to check a traffic light.

The photo was taken at the junction of the A30 and the M5 in Somerset, near the new town of Cranbrook, Devon and featured men working for a firm carrying out contract work for Devon County Council.

The workers had been tasked with checking the signal lights had been set up correctly before Devon County Council hands over maintenance of the signals to the Highways Agency.

Hospital surgeon ‘followed 24-year-old woman patient to her car to grope her after back pain examination’

Trusted: In a video interview the patient told a police officer that she had 'trusted' Dr Damodaran

Surgeon Puthur Damodaran has been accused of following a woman patient to her car and groping her while she trustingly let him re-examine her for back pain

A ‘pervert’ hospital surgeon followed a patient to her car after examining her for back pain – and groped her while she trustingly let him re-examine her, a jury has heard.

The 24-year-old blonde woman was molested in a secluded corner of the hospital car park after the 40-year-old orthopaedic specialist climbed into the car with her.

The jury was told that Puthur Damodaran allegedly felt her through her clothes before putting one hand under her jeans and pulling at her top.

The woman, who had been upset at her back pain not being resolved during the hospital appointment, said she became suspicious of Damodaran continuously looking towards the hospital building and she asked him to get out.

She waited for a few minutes before returning to the orthopaedic clinic and reporting his behaviour to nurses.

Prosecutor Ruby Selva told the jury at Guildford Crown Court: ‘There is a special relationship between a medical professional and a patient. These are professionals we should be able to trust.

‘We leave ourselves wholly open, especially if we are in pain. It is in these circumstances that this defendant sexually assaulted the complainant.

‘He did so to satisfy his own perverse needs, banking on the implicit trust we, as members of the public, have in doctors.’

She explained the woman had gone to Leatherhead Hospital, in Surrey, on July 9 last year, to receive the results of a scan.

Her usual doctor was not there and she was seen instead by 40-year-old orthopaedic surgeon Damodaran, with a nurse ‘chaperone’ present.
