Africa coup plotter points finger at Spain, South Africa
British former special forces soldier admitted his part in a failed 2004 coup in oil-rich Equatorial Guinea in an interview broadcast Tuesday, but denied he was the mastermind. "I was involved and I was the manager... I was the manager. Not the architect and not the main man," Simon Mann told Britain's Channel 4 News in an interview conducted in the jail where he is being held in the capital, Malabo.

Diana photographers 'spun lies'
The paparazzi first on the scene of the car crash which killed Princess Diana in Paris have been accused of lying to protect themselves. At the inquest into her death, police statements taken from photographers ten years ago were read out. Mohammed al Fayed's lawyer described their version of events as a "concoction of lies". The jury heard that images of the crash were being marketed internationally within hours of the collision but were immediately pulled when the deaths were confirmed.

Manchester police chief found dead
The chief constable of Greater Manchester Police has been found dead in north Wales. The body of 50-year-old Michael Todd was reportedly discovered at the bottom of a cliff in Llanberis, Snowdonia, where he was known to have been out walking. Deputy Chief Constable Dave Whatton said: "Yesterday our chief constable Michael Todd was off-duty walking in Snowdonia.

More severe gales to sweep Britain overnight
Winds gusting up to 80 mph are expected to sweep across the country late on Tuesday and into early Wednesday, a day after a storm brought down trees and power lines in southern England and Wales. The Met Office issued a severe weather warning for much of the United Kingdom on Tuesday. It said the strongest winds would reach Northern Ireland late on Tuesday evening before racing across parts of southwest Scotland, northern England, north Wales and the Midlands during Wednesday.

EU assembly approves flood damage cash
The European Parliament agreed on Tuesday to give Britain 162.4 million euros (124.5 million pounds) in EU money to help repair damage from last year's floods. Very heavy rainfall in June and July last year caused heavy flooding in many UK regions, causing direct damage estimated at over 4.6 billion euros, the parliament said in a statement. It was Britain's first application to the EU's executive European Commission for financial help from the bloc's solidarity fund, which was launched in 2002.
