DADCARVESBOY, 6 US: A Texas man has been charged for allegedly carving a large pentagram into his six-year-old sons back in honour of the date 12/12/12. Brent Troy Bartel, 39, allegedly told a 911 dispatcher he did it because its a holy day, The Dallas Morning News reported. I shed some innocent blood, he told the dispatcher. The boy was taken to Cook Childrens Hospital and was expected to make a full recovery as the cuts were not deep enough to scar. POACHING SURGES US: Elephant and rhino poaching surged to record levels in 2011 and is worth at least $18.08 billion a year, according to a report commissioned by the World Wildlife Fund. The report, launched yesterday, found criminals viewed poaching as high profit and low risk because governments dont give it a high enough priority or have an effective response. Dads dance death Psy UK: A father of three has died in front of his wife after dancing to Gangnam Style at his office Christmas party in Britain. Eamonn Kilbride, 46, was performing the energetic dance by Korean pop star Psy at the Thwaites Brewery party in Blackburn, Lancashire, when he suddenly fell to the ground. His wife Julie, who was there celebrating her birthday, tried to perform CPR but to no avail. He died of acute heart failure. Mrs Kilbride told The Sun newspaper that her husband was a great family man who she had been married to for 23 years. I want people to know how he would help anybody, whether it was a lifelong friend, or someone he had just met, Mrs Kilbride said. Eamonn was always the life of the party and loved dancing. We were having a fantas tic time at the Christmas party and Eamonn had just finished dancing to Gangnam Style. He was up on stage and entertaining everybody. He said he had a bit of a pain and just collapsed. I tried to revive him until the ambulance got there, but by the time he got to the hospital he was gone. Mr Kilbride had three children, Laurajade, 22, Jack, 21, and Conor, 18, all attending university. Life term for war crimes THE HAGUE: The UNs Yugoslav war crimes court has sentenced former Bosnian Serb general Zdravko Tolimir to life in jail after finding him guilty of genocide for his role in the 1995 Srebrenica massacre, the worst atrocity since World War II. A gaunt Tolimir crossed himself three times before the verdict was delivered.

Ms Saldanha, 46, died three days after transferring a call from radio hosts Mel Greig and Michael Christian to the hospital room of the Duchess of Cambridge. It is understood the nurse left a note. Typhoon toll tops 900 MANILA: The death toll from the strongest typhoon to hit the Philippines this year has climbed above 900, with hundreds still missing, the government says.
