New political funding row hits Brown's government - Faith leaders commemorate Holocaust - Helicopter Crash At Rudding Park Hotel And Golf Resort - Village schools in 'closure threat' - Kenya clashes kill at least 19.



New political funding row hits Brown's government
A senior minister faced accusations on Sunday that he had accepted illegal political donations, the latest funding row to hit Prime Minister Gordon Brown's government.
The Sunday Mirror newspaper said a donor channelled 3,334 pounds to Health Secretary Alan Johnson through a proxy, which is banned under political funding rules brought in by the ruling Labour Party to prevent sleaze.

Faith leaders commemorate Holocaust
Faith leaders have called for the end of genocide around the world as they congregated in Liverpool to mark Holocaust Memorial Day. The Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr Rowan Williams, and the Chief Rabbi, Sir Jonathan Sacks, signed a Pledge Against Genocide in the form of a large mural artwork.
The mural, outside the city's Philharmonic Hall, was dedicated to encouraging individuals to support an end to the destruction of others in the 21st century.

Helicopter Crash At Rudding Park Hotel And Golf Resort
Family and friends have paid tribute to the couple killed in a helicopter crash at a luxury golf resort in North Yorkshire. Paul Spencer, 43, and his wife Linda, 59 were regular visitors at the Rudding Park hotel and had been at the complex on Saturday. Their private aircraft crashed in the grounds of the hotel and golf course just before 4.30pm as it tried to take off from a helipad.

Village schools in 'closure threat'
Hundreds of small village schools could face closure, a campaign group has warned.
The National Association for Small Schools (NASS) says between 100 and 300 schools across the United Kingdom could shut their doors. It warns there is an "infectious official line spreading across the UK" with pressure on councils not only to cut the number of spare places but also not to have too many schools.

Kenya clashes kill at least 19
Ethnic clashes killed at least 19 people in Kenya's Rift Valley on Sunday, overshadowing a meeting between former U.N. chief Kofi Annan and opposition leader Raila Odinga to try to resolve a month-long crisis.
Naivasha District Commissioner Katee Mwanza told Reuters eight people were burnt and 11 others hacked to death, the latest victims of violence which has killed 750 people since a disputed election on December 27.
