Archbishop ignites Sharia law debate - NATO struggles for unity over Afghan war - Amy Winehouse Won't Sing At Grammys - Bank cuts rates but warns on inflation - Police paperwork to be reduced.



Archbishop ignites Sharia law debate
of Canterbury Rowan Williams, spiritual leader of the world's Anglicans, said on Thursday the introduction in Britain of some aspects of sharia, Islamic law, was unavoidable. His unexpected comments were welcomed by some Muslim groups, but the government was quick to distance itself from them, saying it was out of the question that the principles of sharia could be used in British civil courts.

NATO struggles for unity over Afghan war
NATO tried to patch over divisions about the war in Afghanistan on Thursday but differences remained over the willingness of some members to contribute troops to the fight. At a meeting in the Lithuanian capital Vilnius, defence ministers with troops fighting fierce battles against the Taliban in the south of Afghanistan backed calls by the United States for more countries to send forces there.

Amy Winehouse Won't Sing At Grammys
Amy Winehouse will not perform at this year's Grammy Awards in the US, her publicist has said. The singer, who has been struggling with drink and drug problems, has been denied entry to the United States. The Outside Organisation, which represents the retro-soul star, said Winehouse's request for a visa had been turned down by the US Embassy in London.

Bank cuts rates but warns on inflation
The Bank of England trimmed interest rates on Thursday to help shore up the economy but policymakers remain worried about inflation, dampening hopes of rapid fire rate cuts. The Bank lowered its key rate by a quarter percentage point to 5.25 percent, following a similar cut in December. All 60 economists polled by Reuters had forecast the move.

Police paperwork to be reduced
Police red tape is to be slashed in the wake of a long-awaited review of procedures and bureaucracy. Home Secretary Jacqui Smith told the Commons the lengthy forms officers have to complete to record stop and account incidents will be scrapped immediately in three pilot areas and nationally by the end of the year.
