UK hands control of Basra to Iraq forces
Britain handed over security on Sunday to Iraqi forces in the last of four provinces it once patrolled, effectively marking the end of nearly five years of British control of southern Iraq.
Thousands of Iraqi police and troops marked the handover with a parade along the palm-fringed embankment of Basra, the country's second-biggest city, in a show of Iraqi military force on a scale unseen since the days of Saddam Hussein.

Big issues for South Africa
POVERTY: The government wants to lift growth to an average of more than 6 percent by 2010 to try to cut widespread poverty and high unemployment.
CORRUPTION: The latest African Peer Review Mechanism (APRM) report on good governance in South Africa identified crime, graft and xenophobia as potential pitfalls for the continent's biggest economy. It put official corruption among the biggest problems.
ENERGY: State-owned electricity utility Eskom, the world's lowest-cost producer, has been criticized for power shortages.

Kenya whistleblower attacks Kibaki's anti-graft record
The man who blew the whistle on one of Kenya's biggest graft scandals criticised President Mwai Kibaki's record on fighting corruption and tribalism on Sunday, in an interview published ahead of a December 27 election.
Kibaki's exiled former anti-corruption adviser, John Githongo, said the government should admit knowing of the "Anglo Leasing" affair in which state contracts worth hundreds of millions of dollars were awarded to phantom firms.

Row over future of historic London market
Surrounded by the City of London financial district's dizzying maze of skyscrapers, the centuries-old Smithfield meat market has survived untroubled as a reminder of a bygone age -- until now.
The covered market, which echoes to the calls of stallholders and whose fans include Prince Charles, could come under threat from a mooted new office block nearby, depending on the result of a public inquiry due to report next year.

Wenger delighted by jubilant Arsenal's perfect response
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger praised his side for their 1-0 victory over Chelsea on Sunday, saying it was the ideal way to recover from last week's first Premier League defeat of the season at Middlesbrough.
"It was very important, the perfect response. If you lose a match and then lose the next match at home, it can undermine your confidence, so I am delighted with the spirit we showed.
