Brown fights backlash over Northern Rock
Prime Minister Gordon Brown defended his handling of the nationalisation of Northern Rock on Monday, but will now have to grapple with the fallout of possible job cuts and shrinking the bank.
Brown, who helped transform the Labour Party in the 1990s by ditching an attachment to state ownership, has been accused of dithering in a five-month crisis in which the government lent around 25 billion pounds to keep Northern Rock afloat, while it cast around for private bidders.

Al-Fayed calls royals a "Dracula family"
Luxury storeowner Mohamed al-Fayed said on Monday the death of Princess Diana and his son Dodi in a 1997 Paris car crash was murder and accused the royal family of wanting to "get rid" of Diana. In an emotional appearance at the inquest into their deaths, al-Fayed accused Prince Philip of being a "Nazi" and a "racist." "You want to know his original name -- it ends with Frankenstein," al-Fayed told the court. He said Diana had "suffered for 20 years from this Dracula family".

British Muslim 'fanatic' jailed for life for soldier terror plot
An Islamist extremist who hatched a plot to kidnap and behead a British Muslim soldier and then publish the footage on the Internet was jailed for life on Monday. Parviz Khan pleaded guilty to the plan, as well as supplying equipment to extremists in Pakistan and possessing documents "likely to be of use to a terrorist" at a hearing last month.
Sentencing of the 37-year-old and three other men, who admitted to charges linked to the conspiracy, had been adjourned until the conclusion of hearings involving two other defendants who had denied their involvement.

Brown welcomes independent Kosovo
Gordon Brown has welcomed Kosovo into the international fold despite concerns from other EU powers. The Prime Minister announced that Britain would be officially recognising the new state in a bid to "close the chapter" following the fraught break-up of Yugoslavia. "Kosovo has been and is the last unresolved issue," he said. "We are recognising Kosovo as an independent sovereign state."

Blair 'part of Diana conspiracy'
Tony Blair, the man who dubbed Diana the "People's Princess", has been accused of being part of an alleged conspiracy to murder her. Mohamed al Fayed claims the former prime minister sanctioned the "momentous and horrific action" that saw his son Dodi Fayed and Diana, Princess of Wales killed in a car crash in Paris, their inquests were told. The Harrods boss - described to the hearing as both a buccaneering businessman and a grieving father - entered the witness box and implicated many establishment figures in the plot to kill or cover-up the murder of the couple.
