Set in ancient Egypt and loosely based on the story of Moses, "The Ten Commandments" is billed as Brazil's first biblical soap opera.

  • Tired feet? Not Her Majesty despite 8,000 party guests

    It was a stirring moment Thursday when the military band struck up "God Save the Queen" and Queen Elizabeth II appeared on the garden steps of Buckingham Palace next to her husband, Prince Philip. The Queen's Garden Party: It's a tradition that started more than 145 years ago with Queen Victoria, and continues today, changed as little as possible despite the modern, screaming metropolis that now surrounds the extensive, tranquil palace gardens. There is more security, true, and the sound of traffic sometimes intrudes, but the garden party remains a timeless tableau, complete with spice-free sandwiches (yes, the crust is removed) along with cakes and tea.

  • Iran, N. Korea 'collaborate' on nuclear arms: Iranian opposition

    An exiled Iranian opposition group accused Tehran Thursday of a "vast collaboration" with North Korea in developing nuclear arms, alleging that experts from both countries made regular intelligence-sharing visits. "The Iranian regime continues to collaborate with North Korea on nuclear warheads and ballistic missiles," the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) said in a report citing sources close to the Iranian government. North Korean experts spent a week in the Iranian capital in April this year, the report said, staying at a site close to the country's defence ministry.

  • The FIFA arrests show how far Qatar has fallen in the past 5 years

    The US Department of Justice's charging documents against 14 individuals accused of bribery and racketeering in conjunction with their roles at FIFA, soccer's international governing body, barely mention Qatar. If the allegations made by DOJ prosecutors are accurate, the hosting rights for the 2010 World Cup, the 2011 FIFA presidential election, and a number of South American soccer tournaments were tainted by nearly $150 million in bribes. It's difficult to believe that Qatar's World Cup bid was any cleaner than the rest of the apparently sordid day-to-day business of FIFA.

  • Cornet and Monfils raise French hopes in Paris

    By Martyn Herman PARIS (Reuters) - Just after lunch Alize Cornet collapsed on her back in joy and several hours later as dusk arrived Gael Monfils danced a jig of delight as home hopes soared at the French Open on Friday. In between there were routine third-round victories for defending women's champion Maria Sharapova and Swiss great Roger Federer, but day six was a celebratory one for Les Bleus. Sharapova's clash against former runner-up Samantha Stosur looked potentially dangerous for the steely Russian but she dominated throughout against the 26th seeded Australian, winning 6-3 6-4.

  • Shocking ads ignite debate about abortion ban in Chile

    The video shows a woman climbing a stairwell, her belly visibly pregnant, as she offers suggestions: Make sure there are no security cameras. The video is one of a series of mock abortion tutorials, part of a public campaign urging Chile to allow women to end pregnancies in cases of rape or medical complications. It would be a radical change for Chile, one of only four countries that prohibit all abortion, according to the New York-based Center for Reproductive Rights, though a handful of others are so restrictive that they have de facto bans.

  • Dwyane Wade gave up $10 million last summer to help the Heat re-sign LeBron James, and now his contract situation is a mess

    There is a "sizable gap" between Dwyane Wade and the Miami Heat in contract negotiations for a future deal, according to Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald. While James went back to Cleveland and Chris Bosh re-signed on a max deal, Wade settled for a two-year, $31 million deal with Miami, with a $16.1 million player option this summer. As Jackson reports, the original belief was that Wade would opt into that player deal this summer so he could explore free agency in 2016 when the salary cap jumps to $88 million.
