Mali al-Qaida-linked group stones couple to death over alleged adultery

BAMAKO, Mali -- An al-Qaida-linked Islamist militant group in control of northern Mali stoned to death a couple accused of engaging in extramarital affairs, the group's spokesman said. The couple were publicly executed in the remote town of Aguelhok, near the vast West African nation's northern border with Algeria, on Sunday, a spokesman for the Ansar Dine group told Reuters. "These two people were married and had extra-conjugal relations. Our men on the ground in Aguelhok applied shariah (Islamic law)," said Sanda Ould Bounama, reached by telephone on Monday."They both died right away and even asked for this application. We don't have to answer to anyone over the application of shariah," he said. A local government official told the AFP news agency that he was on the scene. "The Islamists took the unmarried couple to the center of Aguelhok. The couple was placed in two holes and the Islamists stoned them to death," he said.

Feet-in-lettuce photo hits Internet, gets Burger King employees fired


The photo initially appeared on 4Chan, a website which allows users to post images and participate in discussion anonymously. It was captioned, "This is the lettuce you eat at Burger King."


Bryson Thornton, director of global communications for Burger King, confirmed that the photo was indeed taken at a Burger King location, though he clarified that it happens to be "independently owned and operated by a Burger King franchisee."


"The franchisee has taken swift action to investigate this matter and terminated the three employees involved in the incident," he said, after giving me a standard statement, which I suspect was painful to draft:


Burger King Corp. has recently been made aware of a photo that shows a Burger King restaurant employee violating the company’s stringent food handling procedures. Food safety is a top priority at all Burger King restaurants and the company maintains a zero-tolerance policy against any violations such as the one in question.

Lifeguard: I was fired for going to rescue man outside my beach zone

A Hallandale Beach, Fla., lifeguard said he was fired after he left his post to rescue a man drowning outside the zone he was hired to patrol. Now, two other lifeguards say they have also been fired over failing to agree with the company policy, and four others say they have quit in protest. The president of the company, Jeff Ellis, could only confirm that one employee was let go, and as many as three have resigned, said Hallandale Beach spokesman Peter Dobens.
