"Monster" catfish named Scar reeled in by amateur fisherman may break a U.K. record

Monster catfish named Scar reeled in by amateur fisherman may break a U.K. record

Darren Reitz usually goes fishing for some "peace and quiet" – then he caught what he could only describe as a "monster." It was a fish so big, it may have broken a U.K. record.

The 34-year-old East London man, a self-described amateur fisherman, was enjoying a day on a lake in Maldon, Essex, when he came across the aquatic beast. Reitz told CBS News partner BBC that he was at Chigborough Farm and Fisheries with friends when he suddenly felt a bite on his fishing line. It took nearly an hour – and the help of his friends – to get it out of the water.

"My wrist is still hurting from reeling," he told the BBC. "... Three of my friends got into the...more

5 people die from drinking poison potion in Santeria power ritual, Mexican officials say

Five people have died after drinking a poison potion in a Santeria "power" ritual, police in the southern Mexico state of Oaxaca said Wednesday.

Iván García Alvarez, the Oaxaca state police chief, said four men and one woman died after drinking a mix of substances he did not specify.

He said they were involved in Santeria, a faith that began in Cuba when African slaves blended Yoruba spiritual beliefs with Roman Catholic traditions.

García Alvarez said the victims mixed the potion themselves and drank it "to acquire some certain kind of powers." He said the deaths at a home in Oaxaca city are being investigated as a group...more

China on Friday launched a lunar probe to land on the far side of the moon in a first-of-its-kind mission to return with samples that could provide insights into differences between the less-explored region and the better-known near side.

It is the latest advance in China's increasingly sophisticated space exploration program, which is now competing with the U.S., still the leader in space.

Polish prosecutors have discontinued an investigation into human skeletons found at a site where German dictator Adolf Hitler and other Nazi leaders spent time during World War II because the advanced state of decay made it impossible to determine the cause of death, a spokesman said Monday.

The remains were found Feb. 24 at Wolf's Lair, which served as Hitler's chief headquarters from 1941-44 when the area was part of Germany. The compound of...more

Russian court says American man jailed for hooliganism after drunkenly breaking into children's library

A Moscow court said Tuesday that it had sentenced a U.S. citizen to 10 days in detention for petty hooliganism after he stumbled drunkenly into a children's library and passed out. News of the American's detention came just hours after Russian and U.S. authorities said a U.S. soldier was being held in custody in the far eastern city of Vladivostok on suspicion of theft in a separate case.

Russia's REN TV said the man detained in Moscow had climbed through the window of a children's library in the Russian capital and fallen asleep while drunk. Video aired by the network showed a person, partially clothed, laying in what...more

South Africa has won a legal claim over $43 million worth of treasure from a World War II shipwreck that was found off the country's coast by a British exploration company, the U.K. Supreme Court said on Wednesday. The sinking of the the SS Tilawa — which has been called the "Indian Titanic" — killed 280 people and sent over 2,000 bars of silver plunging to the ocean floor.

On November 23, 1942, the SS Tilawa was sunk by Japanes torpedoes in the Indian Ocean, the court said in a news release announcing the ruling. In addition to over 900 people on board, the ship was also carrying 2,364...more

Every morning before she goes to school, 12-year-old Dariel Bardach-Goldstein tapes a number to her chest. It marks the days since her cousin was taken hostage by Hamas.

Dariel campaigns almost daily with her mother Rebecca, demanding a deal to bring the dozens of Israelis seized by Hamas during the group's Oct. 7 terrorist attack back home. But it hasn't been easy.

In the days immediately after the attack, Rebecca thought her...more

Crowds started gathering early Wednesday morning around Marseille's Old Port as a 19th century sailing ship carrying the Olympic flame appeared on the horizon. More than 1,000 boats accompanied the Belem, a three-mast schooner, as it approached the harbor of France's second-largest city in a slow maritime parade on calm seas under a clear blue sky.

Four flight attendants have been charged in connection with an alleged scheme to smuggle drug money from the U.S. to the Dominican Republic, authorities announced Wednesday.

Prosecutors in the Southern District of New York alleged in two unsealed complaints that Charlie Hernandez, Sarah Valerio Pujols, Emmanuel Torres and Jarol Fabio took part in a years-long scheme to smuggle bulk cash that had been earned from selling drugs on behalf of traffickers from the United States to the Dominican Republic.

More than 100,000 packets of sliced bread have been recalled in Japan after parts of a black rat's body were discovered inside two of them, the manufacturer said Wednesday. Food recalls are rare in Japan, a country with famously high standards of sanitation, and Pasco Shikishima Corporation said it was investigating how the rodent remains had crept in to its products.

The company said it was so far unaware of anyone falling sick after eating its processed white "chojuku" bread, long a staple of Japanese breakfast tables.

2nd Lt. Allan W. Knepper took off from Tunisia in his P-38 "Lightning" aircraft as "one of many fighter waves" set to attack enemy Axis forces in Sicily, Italy on July 10, 1943.

During the attack, air forces were dispatched every 30 minutes, dodging enemy fire as they strafed an armored German column.

Knepper, 27, and the 49th Fighter Squadron encountered heavy anti-aircraft fire. Another pilot reported witnessing his plane "veer suddenly skyward before rolling halfway over and plummeting to the ground." No evidence was found that he deployed his parachute,...more

A Brazilian horse nicknamed Caramelo by social media users garnered national attention after a television news helicopter filmed him stranded on a rooftop in southern Brazil, where massive floods have killed more than 100 people. About 24 hours after he was first spotted and with people clamoring for his rescue, a team in Brazil's Rio Grande do Sul state on Thursday successfully removed Caramelo, providing a dose of hope to a beleaguered region.

It wouldn't be Mother's Day in the United States without the classic traditions Americans know best: large bouquets of roses and carnations, homemade cards, special outings, and accolades for moms near and far.

When the holiday was first started in 1907 by Anna Jarvis to honor mothers, the day's event was at a Methodist church in West Virginia, where white carnations were reportedly distributed to those in attendance.

Cannes set to unfurl against backdrop of war, protests and films

The Cannes Film Festival rarely passes without cacophony but this year's edition may be more raucous and uneasy than any edition in recent memory.

When the red carpet is rolled out from the Palais des Festivals on Tuesday, the 77th Cannes will unfurl against a backdrop of war, protest, potential strikes and quickening #MeToo upheaval in France, which for years largely resisted the movement.

Festival workers are threatening to strike. The Israel-Hamas war, acutely felt in France, home to Europe's largest Jewish and Arab communities, is sure to spark protests. Russia's war in Ukraine remains on the minds of many. Add in the kinds of anxieties that can be expected to percolate...more

Hunt underway for Sumatran tiger after screaming leads workers to man's body, tiger footprints



A man has been found dead in western Indonesia after a suspected attack by a Sumatran tiger authorities were still hunting, a local official said Saturday, the latest case of conflict between humans and the critically endangered species.

There are only several hundred tigers on the western island of Sumatra left in the wild and they are often targeted by poachers for their body parts, while rampant deforestation has significantly reduced their habitat.

A team of conservationists was deployed to search for the big cat on Saturday after the 26-year-old male victim was found dead at a plantation in Riau province on Sumatra island on Thursday afternoon with wounds indicating a tiger attack.

"Our team has left this morning (to search for...more

Harry and Meghan wrap up a very royal looking tour of Nigeria

Britain's Prince Harry and Meghan, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, wrapped up a three-day tour of Nigeria on Sunday that saw the U.S.-based couple use their celebrity to highlight some of the causes they care most about.

Harry played a game of sitting volleyball with disabled athletes — all of them Nigerian army veterans.

Nigeria has expressed interest in hosting the Invictus Games, the charity sporting event for wounded soldiers founded a decade ago by the duke.

Meghan co-hosted a women's leadership event where she referenced her Nigerian ancestry for the second time during the trip.

A British boxer has died after he lost on his professional debut in London, officials said.

Sherif Lawal was knocked down by a blow to the head from Malam Varela in the fourth round of a scheduled six-round middleweight fight on Sunday at Harrow Leisure Centre. The referee waved it off to allow paramedics to attend to Lawal. He was taken to hospital but died. He was 29.

Killer whales attack and sink sailing yacht in the Strait of Gibraltar — again

Killer whales attack and sink sailing yacht in the Strait of Gibraltar — again

A sailing yacht sunk in the Strait of Gibraltar on Sunday after an unknown number of orcas slammed into the vessel with two people on board and caused a water leak, officials said. Both crew members were rescued by a passing oil tanker, said Spain's maritime rescue service, marking the latest killer whale attack on a boat in what has become a pattern in recent years.

The incident happened at around 9 a.m. local time in the narrow strait between Spain and Morocco that has become a notorious site of human interactions with pods of killer whales that, for reasons still not fully understood, ram into boats and at times even sink them. In this case, crew members on board the...more

Summer of 2023 was the hottest in 2,000 years in some parts of the world, researchers say

Last summer's sweltering heat broke more than city or regional or even national records. In what they call an "alarming finding," scientists say that in the Northern Hemisphere, the summer of 2023 was the hottest in 2,000 years.

Global data already showed that last summer was the hottest on record. Copernicus, the European Union's climate change observation organization, made that determination But a new study, published in Nature on Tuesday, looked even further back using both observed and reconstructed temperatures from centuries past.

They found the heat was "unparalleled," the researchers said.

According to their findings, the...more

Sun emits its largest X-class flare of the solar cycle as officials warn bursts from massive sunspot "not done yet"

Sun emits its largest X-class flare of the solar cycle as officials warn bursts from massive sunspot not done yet

The giant solar explosions of energy and light aren't over yet. Officials said on Tuesday that the sun just emitted another major solar flare – and that it's the strongest one so far in the current solar cycle.

The latest flare peaked just before 1 p.m. ET, NOAA's Space Weather Prediction Center said, with an X-class rating of X8.7. X-class solar flares are the strongest of solar flares, which are described by NASA as "giant explosions on the sun that send energy, light and high speed particles into space." The center said the flare was an R3 or "strong" flare, meaning it could have caused wide area blackouts of...more

Teen who vanished 26 years ago rescued from neighbor's cellar — just 200 yards from his home in Algeria

Teen who vanished 26 years ago rescued from neighbor's cellar — just 200 yards from his home in Algeria

An Algerian man who had been missing for 26 years has been found in his neighbor's house, just a few minutes' walk away, the country's justice ministry said this week.

The man only identified as Omar B. had vanished at the age of 19 during the Algerian Civil War in 1998, and his family assumed he had been kidnapped or killed.

Now aged 45, he was found amid haystacks only about 200 yards away in the city of Djelfa after the captor's brother aired grievances on social media, reportedly due to an inheritance dispute.

Algerian media reported that when family members began searching the suspect's house, he became tense when...more

The "grotesque" baobab tree has long been known as the "tree of life" for its ability to create and maintain its own ecosystem in arid regions. Since the time of the ancient Egyptians, people have marveled at what researchers say is among "the most charismatic species on our planet," but nobody knew where they originated from – until now.

There are currently eight species of the tall and wide-trunked plants, also known as...more

Radar detects long-lost river in Egypt, possibly solving ancient pyramid mystery

Radar detects long-lost river in Egypt, possibly solving ancient pyramid mystery

Scientists have discovered a long-buried branch of the Nile river that once flowed alongside more than 30 pyramids in Egypt, potentially solving the mystery of how ancient Egyptians transported the massive stone blocks to build the famous monuments.

The 40-mile-long river branch, which ran by the iconic Giza pyramid complex among other wonders, was hidden under desert and farmland for millennia, according to a study revealing the find on Thursday.

The existence of the river would explain why the 31 pyramids were built in a chain along a now inhospitable desert strip in the Nile Valley between 4,700 and 3,700 years ago.

The strip near the...more

A wooden door discovered recently on the upper floor of a French Revolution-era watchtower offers an intimate look at the lives of British soldiers who spent hours at a time stationed there during the war, experts say. The door is covered in carved markings and illustrations that seem to reflect the soldiers' daily experiences, and, for the most part, they do not paint a cheerful picture.

Among several notable dates and ostensible surnames engraved into the wood are a handful of eerie drawings, in which stick figure-like people are being hanged. One of those drawings may even depict the hanging of Napoleon Bonaparte, the French emperor...more

You can send mail from France with a stamp that smells like a baguette

If you live in France or are traveling there for vacation, you can now mail your friends an authentic French fragrance overseas. The country has revealed a new baguette stamp that smells like a bakery.

The stamp costs $2.13 U.S. dollars and can be used on international letters. It features a drawing of a baguette that smells as good as it looks – because it's a scratch-and-sniff sticker.

The classic French bread loaf "embodies a ritual, that of going to your bakery, a local business anchored in the regions, attracting twelve million consumers every day," France's postal service La Poste said.

New Zealand man filmed trying to

New Zealand officials have fined a man hundreds of dollars for what they say was a display of "shocking and stupid attitude" after he was filmed jumping off a boat in an attempt to "body slam" an orca who was swimming near a calf.

In a news release Tuesday, New Zealand's Department of Conservation said that it was made aware of a video posted on Instagram in February that shows the 50-year-old man committing the act. The department said he was off the coast of Devonport, Auckland, when the video was taken, "in what appears to be a deliberate effort to touch or 'body slam' the orca."

A Thai town, run ragged by its ever-growing population of marauding wild monkeys, launched an offensive against the simian raiders on Friday, using trickery and ripe tropical fruit.

Several high-profile cases of monkey-human conflict recently convinced authorities in Lopburi, in central Thailand, that they had to reduce the animals' numbers.

If all goes well, most will end up behind bars before starting a new life elsewhere.

The first stage of the plan, instituted Friday, is to bait cages with the animals' favorite food, then...more

For the first half-dozen years of her pro career, Daria Kasatkina was known as an ascending player, whose tennis was predicated on brains, not brawn, using her racket less as a high-powered weapon than a scalpel. She was known throughout tennis by her nickname, Dasha. She was not known for being political, or particularly outspoken.

Then, in February 2022, Russia invaded Ukraine, and she condemned her country for it.

Asked if she was surprised by the level of courage she had in speaking out, Kasatkina replied, "Yes, I was. Because I'm in general a very careful person. I will think 300 times before saying something. If some topic like this will come up, I almost probably just sit in...more
