Obesity behind many maternal birth deaths - Flawed decoy plan 'catalyst Diana tragedy' - Pound slips against the dollar ahead of Federal Reserve meeting - Myanmar rejects U.N. human rights report.

Obesity behind many maternal birth deaths
More than half of mothers who died during child birth were overweight, a report found on Tuesday.
The Confidential Enquiry into Maternal and Child Health (CEMACH) said maternal-related deaths in the UK are at a two decade high.
In its annual report, "Saving Mothers' Lives: reviewing maternal deaths to make motherhood safer", it found that of the almost 300 women who died during childbirth between 2003 and 2005 from pregnancy-related conditions, more than half were obese.

Flawed decoy plan 'catalyst Diana tragedy'
A plan by Dodi Fayed to whisk Diana, Princess of Wales away from the Ritz out of the prying gaze of the paparazzi was scuppered when a member of his security team inadvertently revealed details, it has been claimed.
The inquest into events surrounding the deaths of Diana and Dodi heard that details of the secret scheme - which involved leaving the Paris hotel through the back door - were blurted out by Kes Wingfield, one of Dodi's British bodyguards in front of a crowd of photographers.

Pound slips against the dollar ahead of Federal Reserve meeting
The dollar recovered against the pound on Tuesday as investors awaited an interest rate decision by the Federal Reserve.
Sterling was trading at 2.0413 dollars against the greenback amid profit-taking by investors.
On Monday, high producer price indices (PPI) confirmed that inflationary pressures persist in the British economy less than a week after the Bank of England cut interest rates by a quarter-pount to 5.50 percent.

Myanmar rejects U.N. human rights report
Myanmar on Tuesday rejected a U.N. envoy's report that said the ruling junta had used excessive force in September to quell monk-led street protests.
Wunna Maung Lwin, Myanmar's U.N. ambassador in Geneva, said there was no need for a wider inquiry into its response to the popular uprising, which he called "a daunting challenge".
"Exercising its sovereign right to handle a violent situation should not be construed as a violation of human rights," he told a meeting of the U.N. Human Rights Council.
