Nazi couple lose kids TRENTON: A New Jersey couple who gave their children Nazi-inspired names should not regain custody of them, a US state appeals court has found.

Haitian-born singer Wyclef Jean, centre, greets supporters from the top of a vehicle in Port au-Prince yesterday after submitting the paperwork to run for president of Haiti Hip hop man woos Haiti PORT-AU-PRINCE: Singer Wyclef Jean submitted the paperwork yesterday to run for president of Haiti, formally thrusting himself into what is expected to be a highly competitive race and ending years of speculation about his political ambitions. Dozens of supporters of the hip hop artist-turnedpolitician cheered as he arrived by motorcade in a dark suit and tie at an electoral office in a capital city still in ruins from the devastating January 12 earthquake. Jean, who was accompanied by his wife and daughter, stood on top of an SUV and bowed to the crowd. Its a moment in time and in history, Jean said as he went to hand in his candidacy, 10 minutes before the office closed. Its very emotional. The winner of the November 28 election will preside over the billions in international aid being channelled to Haiti to rebuild after the earthquake, which killed an estimated 300,000 people and destroyed thousands of buildings, including most government ministries. If his candidacy is approved, Jean will face several candidates who lack his international fame but have more political clout. Among the most formidable contestants will be ousted ex-prime minister Jacques-Edouard Alexis, who secured the backing of President Rene Prevals powerful Unity party this week. Preval is barred from running by the constitution. Jean was born on the outskirts of Port-au-Prince but left the country as a child and grew up in Brooklyn. He gained fame as a member of the Fugees and went on to have a successful solo career. In recent years, he has been active in Haiti with the charity Yele Haiti. Somali pirates hijack Syrian freighter BRUSSELS: Somali pirates seized a freighter with 24 Syrian and Egyptian crew members in the Gulf of Aden yesterday, the European Unions antipiracy force said. The Syria Star, flagged in Saint Vincent and Grenadines, radioed for help and reported that she was under attack from pirates who had climbed onboard and fired shots at the crew, the European Union NAVFOR Somalia mission said. Helicopters were dispatched and tried to establish contact with the ship, which had stopped in the water, but they found only an abandoned skiff nearby containing fuel and ammunition, the force said. When warships arrived, the Syria Star had reversed course.
