Seventeen villagers beheaded in southern Afghanistan after 'music party'

Afghan President Hamid Karzai accused the Taliban on Monday of beheading 17 villagers, including two women, in volatile Helmand province, in a gruesome attack recalling the dark days of the hardline group's rule before their 2001 ouster. He ordered a full investigation into the "mass killing," which a local official said was punishment to revelers attending a party with music and mixed-sex dancing."The victims were killed for throwing a late night dancing and music party when the Taliban attacked," Nimatullah, governor for neighboring Musa Qala district, told Reuters.

In ultra-conservative Afghanistan, men and women do not usually mingle unless they are related, and parties involving both genders together are rare and highly secretive affairs. For the Taliban, flirting, open displays of affection and the mixing of men and women are vehemently condemned.

Hoarding plays role in double fatal fire in SF

San Francisco's fire chief has a major warning for everyone in the wake of an overnight fire in the Excelsior District that killed two men. Firefighters said this looks like an extreme case of hoarding. A large pile of belongings is on the driveway so it would not flare back up, but they said that pile was nothing compared to what was found inside. Firefighters said there was so much stuff stockpiled inside the home, they had a hard time getting to the victims. "It took longer than it normally would in a house that would be free of the debris. It took us about 20 minutes to get the first victim and then another 10 or 12 minutes to locate the second victim," said San Francisco Fire Dept. Chief Joanne Hayes-White. Normally she said it would just take a minute or two. One firefighter said two of three rooms had stuff stacked all the way to the ceiling. In the kitchen he said you couldn't get to the sink."I had a hard time walking through and I had the benefit of having it cleared of smoke and flames, so the crews did an incredible job in suppressing the fire and trying to attempt rescue," said Hayes-White. People in the neighborhood said they could tell there was a possible hoarding issue without even going inside the home."When you look through the windows you could just see piles and piles of things. Firefighters said it appears one of the men did get up and try to escape. Neighbors said the other man was bed ridden. "They were nice people, one of them was real sick, the other one was a really good guy and took care of the other one," said neighbor Thomas Kennedy.The chief said hoarding is more common than you might think, but this is an extreme case.

Australian court OKs logo ban on cigarette packs

'This is a victory for all those families who have lost someone to a tobacco-related illness'

Australia's highest court upheld the world's toughest law on cigarette promotion on Wednesday despite protests from tobacco companies that argued the value of their trademarks will be destroyed under new rules that will strip all logos from cigarette packs. The decision by the High Court means that starting in December, tobacco companies will no longer be able to display their distinctive colors, brand designs and logos on cigarette packs. The packs will instead come in a uniformly drab shade of olive and feature graphic health warnings and images of cancer-riddled mouths, blinded eyeballs and sickly children. The government hopes the new packs will make smoking as unglamorous as possible.

Belarus shot putter stripped of gold

Shot putter Nadzeya Ostapchuk of Belarus became the first athlete to be stripped of a medal at the London Olympics after her gold was withdrawn Monday for doping. The International Olympic Committee said Ostapchuk tested positive for the steroid metenolone. She won the shot put exactly a week earlier. The IOC said she was tested the day before her competition and again following the event. Both samples were positive.

''The (Olympic committee) of Belarus is ordered to return to the IOC, as soon as possible, the medal, diploma and medallist pin awarded to the athlete in relation to the above-noted event,'' the IOC said in a statement.

The announcement came hours after the flame was extinguished at the closing ceremony with athletes and officials heading out of London. A day earlier, IOC President Jacques Rogge had proclaimed the fight against doping a success.

Hamilton: I'm struggling to quit tobacco

Texas Rangers All-Star Josh Hamilton, who has talked about being disobedient to the Lord but failing to explain the details, on Friday explained what he had done. Hamilton has had a problem kicking his smokeless tobacco habit. In a statement released Friday, Hamilton said he has an "issue" was with discipline — professionally at the plate and personally with quitting chewing tobacco. "I was hesitant to address the tobacco once again, because it's an area that I've struggled with trying to quit in the past," Hamilton said. "I wanted to have some time of success 'under my belt' before addressing it again publicly but feel I haven't been given that option with all of the speculating out there as to what the 'mystery issue' was." Hamilton tried to quit using smokeless tobacco at the end of June, opting to use toothpicks coated in tea-tree oil.

He wrote, "I need to quit texting, because I could die in a car accident." After the crash, Chance had a broken neck, a crushed face, a fractured skull, and traumatic brain injuries. Now, 6 months later, he's finally able to talk about what happened.
