Afghans to expel Briton and Irishman - MP's night among the homeless - Protests after sacred cow slaughter - Queen Elizabeth fears for the vulnerable in Christmas message - Irish PM says visit by Queen 'inevitable'.



Afghans to expel Briton and Irishman
Afghanistan has ordered the expulsion of a Briton working for the EU and an Irishman working for the United Nations, accusing them of posing a threat to national security, officials and diplomats said on Tuesday.
Local news portals said the pair may have visited the Taliban insurgent stronghold of Helmand recently and might have met with senior tribal elders with close links to the Taliban -- or even insurgent leaders themselves.

MP's night among the homeless
A Tory MP spent a miserable night on the streets in a bid to highlight what he says is Labour's failure to tackle homelessness.
The Conservatives' housing spokesman Grant Shapps awoke to the sound of rain on his sleeping bag after bedding down in Victoria, central London.
The MP for Welwyn Hatfield said: "I was fine for most of the night until about 5am, when the rain started to pour down.

Protests after sacred cow slaughter
Hundreds of Hindus are to protest outside the RSPCA headquarters at the slaughter of a sick sacred cow at their temple while they were at worship.
The RSPCA was accused of secretly killing Gangotri, a 13-year-old Belgian blue-jersey cross, by lethal injection at Bhaktivedanta Manor in Hertfordshire.
The temple's spokesman, Vinay Tanna, said: "We are holding a peaceful prayer protest at the way Gangotri was killed. The RSPCA made the equivalent of a citizen's arrest - they went in and made the decision to kill the cow immediately. Given the chance we would have taken legal action to try to stop it."

Queen Elizabeth fears for the vulnerable in Christmas message
Queen Elizabeth II, in her annual Christmas Day message to Britain and the Commonwealth, on Tuesday urged people to take responsibility for vulnerable individuals excluded by modern society.
The sovereign, 81, said the modern world could be a distant, hostile place where it was all too easy for people to turn a blind eye to outsiders.

Irish PM says visit by Queen 'inevitable'
A groundbreaking state visit to Ireland by Britain's Queen Elizabeth II is "inevitable" and will happen in the next few years, Irish Prime Minister Bertie Ahern said Monday.
"I think she will come in the next few years, I'm not sure it will be 2008," Ahern said in a traditional Christmas Eve broadcast by RTE state radio from Dublin city centre.
"I think that it is inevitable that she will come," he said.
