APPLY NOW FOR MID YEAR ADMISSION Stab horror Woman beheaded By ANGUS HOHENBOKEN LONDON: A British woman was beheaded with a machete in a savage attack by a man in a busy supermarket in the Canary Islands yesterday. The killer stabbed and decapitated the 60-year-old in front of horrified shoppers in the holiday resort of Los Cristianos on the island of Tenerife. Carrying the womans bloodied head, he then fled into the street before being tackled to the ground by security guards. Horrified onlookers at first thought they were witnessing a macabre joke. Journalist Colin Kirby of Tenerifemagazine.com saw the killer up close, but it took him a moment to register what was going on. There was a Hispanic-looking guy walking behind me, looking very scruffy, muttering to himself, carrying what I thought was a joke head by the hair. The blood it just made me think, Clash of the Titans. I thought, the guys a nutter, its a joke. Mr Kirby then watched as the man was chased by security, dropping the head before being pinned to the ground. Security and police were then forced to defend the man from angry onlookers who were basically trying to kick the hell out of the guy. WORLD sundayterritorian.com.au Kelly helicopter mystery David Kelly LONDON: British police have refused to be drawn on reports that a helicopter mysteriously landed at the scene of weapons expert Dr David Kellys death after his body was discovered. Details released under the Freedom of Information Act reportedly disclose that the aircraft stayed on the ground for five minutes before leaving. According to its flight log, the helicopter said to have been hired by Thames Valley Police landed at Harrowdown Hill in Oxfordshire at 10.55am on July 18, 2003, 90 minutes after Kellys body was found. Kellys death came soon after he was named as the source of BBC reports questioning the ac curacy of a British government dossier arguing the case for war in Iraq. The purpose of the flight and who was on board have not been established because details of the flight log have been heavily revised. One dog each in Shanghai First the one-child policy, now theres a one-dog policy SHANGHAI: Chinas largest city is setting a limit of one dog per family in an effort to gain control over the soaring pet population and curb rabies. Cao Yi was walking her dogs at 11pm, hoping to avoid trouble with neighbours and authorities over her brown poodle and golden retriever. Im afraid one of the dogs might be taken away, she said. The new rule, which takes effect to day, means finding a new home for one of her pets, or registering one with her parents. Shanghais new pet rules also slash steep fees for dog registration aimed at bringing more undocumented dogs on to the books and requires those walking dogs to use leashes. Whether the lower costs will induce more people to legalise unregistered pets or really get rid of those above the quota remains to be seen. Blinding on hold TEHRAN: The court-ordered blinding of an Iranian man who hurled acid in the face of a university classmate who had spurned his offer of marriage has been postponed. The sentence had been scheduled for noon yesterday, in the presence of a physician, and several representatives of the Coroners office and the prosecution. The execution of qesas (retribution in kind) on Majid (Movahedi) . . . has been postponed to an unknown date, the ISNA news agency reported on its website, just hours before the appointed time. Girl gang robbers VASTERAS, Sweden: A spate of robberies by a girl gang in Sweden has prompted a warning from authorities for single elderly men to be on their guard, news website The Local reported yesterday. A police spokesman in Vasteras, a city of more than 130,000 in Swedens southeast, said the women were gaining entry to their victims apartments by feigning a need for a phone, or by requesting a lift home. The men have then discovered items missing after the women, all aged in their early to mid-20s, have left. WEDDEDKILLER WEST PALM BEACH, Florida: A newlywed was found guilty yesterday of hiring an undercover cop to kill her husband just six months after their wedding.

MISSINGGIRL REVIEW LONDON: A decision by British Prime Minister David Cameron to ask police to open a review into the case of missing girl Madeleine McCann is likely to cost millions of dollars and sparked a row yesterday over political interference in policing.
