Russia cleans up after meteor blast CHELYABINSK: Thousands of Russian emergency workers went out on Saturday to clear up the damage from a meteor that exploded over the Ural mountains, damaging buildings, shattering windows and showering people with broken glass.   Divers searched a lake near the city of Chelyabinsk, where a hole several metres wide had opened in the ice, but had so far failed to find any large fragments, officials said.   The scarcity of evidence on the ground fuelled scores of conspiracy theories over what caused the fireball and its huge shockwave on Friday in the area which plays host to many defence industry plants.   Nationalist leader Vladimir Zhirinovsky told reporters in Moscow it could have been "war-mongers" in the United States. "It's not meteors falling.   It's a new weapon being tested by the Americans," he said.   A priest from near the explosion site called it an act of God. Social media sites were flooded with speculation about what might ...

Carnival faces new fiasco a year after Concordia NEW YORK: A year after the tragic Costa Concordia shipwreck, cruise industry leader Carnival faces a new public relations fiasco that reveals the downsides of the sector's recent high-speed growth.   Late Thursday, the company's crippled Triumph limped ashore in Alabama after an engine room fire on Sunday left the ship without the power needed to operate air conditioners, prepare meals or flush toilets.   It ended a miserable ordeal for some 4,000 people that had triggered days of ...
Divers scour Russian lake after meteor strike injures 1,200 MOSCOW: Divers scoured the bottom of a Russian lake on Saturday for fragments of a meteorite that plunged to Earth in a blinding fireball whose shockwave injured 1,200 people and damaged thousands of homes.   The 10-tonnes meteor streaked across the Urals region on Friday just as the world braced for a close encounter with a large asteroid that left some Russian officials calling for the creation of a global system of space object defence.   The unpredicted meteor ...
Vatican chief exorcist thanks Pope Benedict XVI ROME: The Vatican's chief exorcist has thanked Pope Benedict XVI for opening the way to exorcisms, not only for those possessed by the devil but also those tormented by him.   "Benedict held an audience with exorcists from all over the world and welcomed us with words of great, great encouragement," Gabriel Amorth, devil fighter for the diocese of Rome for 27 years, said late Friday in an interview with Italian religious channel TV2000.   "He has continued to ...
Asteroid whizzes safely past Earth   BOSTON: A closely tracked asteroid, about 150-feet (45-meters) wide, whizzed safely past Earth on Friday, the same day a much smaller, previously undetected meteor hit Russia, injuring nearly 1,000 people.   Live images from a telescope at the Gingin Observatory in western Australia showed the asteroid looking like a white streak, moving across against a backdrop of black sky.   Astronomers said the object's speed and proximity made it a challenge to track, because telescopes had to be aimed ...
Italian defence boss resigns over India bribe scandal ROME: The head of Italian defence and aerospace giant Finmeccanica, Giuseppe Orsi, resigned on Friday in a bribery scandal over the sale of helicopters to India as investigators questioned him in prison.   Orsi, who was arrested on Tuesday over alleged bribes paid to secure the sale of 12 choppers, also stepped down as a member of the board and presented his resignation letter to judge Luca Labianca, who heard his testimony behind bars.   His lawyer said the ...
Germany discovers bird flu case on poultry farm HAMBURG: German authorities said a case of H5N1 bird flu had been discovered during initial tests on a poultry farm in the eastern state of Brandenburg.   The case was discovered in a duck farm, which was carrying out its own tests, the Brandenburg state agriculture ministry said on Friday.   The H5N1 virus mainly affects birds but occasionally jumps to people.   Experts fear it may mutate into a form that could spread easily among humans, who have no natural ...
