He is held in connection with attempted murder and illegally carrying a firearm with the intent to cause harm.
It all started on Monday morning when the man got into an argument with the 41-year-old woman over child support.
The suspect claimed he lost his...
Pathologists examining the body of ex-KGB spy Alexander Litvinenko, poisoned with a rare radioactive isotope London in 2006, carried out the world’s most dangerous-ever post-mortem, an inquiry into his killing heard on Wednesday.
They also said they would probably never have discovered the way he had been killed had unusual tests not been carried out just before his death. British police say Kremlin critic Litvinenko died three weeks after drinking tea poisoned with polonium-210 at a plush London hotel...

Novak Djokovic tamed Milos Raonic’s formidable serve before humbling the Canadian 7-6(5) 6-4 6-2 at the Australian Open on Wednesday to set up a mouth-watering semi-final against defending champion Stan Wawrinka.
Eighth seed Raonic, who pushed deep at the grand slams last year, was supposed to offer the first real test for the top-seeded Serb but was completely outclassed under the lights at Rod Laver Arena.
After being edged in the tiebreak,...
Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras promised “radical” change on Wednesday as his new government swiftly moved to roll back key parts of Greece’s international bailout, prompting a third day of losses on financial markets.
A swift series of announcements signalled the newly installed government would not back down from its anti-austerity pledges, setting it on course for a clash with European partners, led by Germany, which has said it will not renegotiate the aid package needed to help Greece pay...

The threat of a full-blown conflict between Israel and Hezbollah increased on Wednesday after the Lebanese militant group fired a missile at an Israeli army vehicle along the frontier and wounded seven soldiers, the biggest escalation since a 2006 war.
The attack, which Hezbollah said was carried out by one of its brigades in the area, was in apparent retaliation for a January 18 Israeli air strike in southern Syria that killed several Hezbollah...

One of the first decisions announced by the Syriza government was stopping the planned sale of a 67-percent stake in Piraeus Port Authority....

We might be in the twenty-first century but the tales of princesses and princes on white horses (referring to the movie Cinderella set to grace our movie screens in March of this year), of wicked witches and wolves (does the recently released block-buster Into the Woods ring a bell?) are still very much what we place our fantasy worlds around.
