Woman hurt as Nokia phone battery explodes

1 Sep, 2007, 1204 hrs IST, AGENCIES

KOLKATA: A pregnant woman suffered burns in eastern India after the battery of her Nokia mobile phone exploded minutes after she put the handset on charge, police said Saturday.

The Finnish phone maker warned last month in front-page advertisements in leading Indian dailies that some of its batteries were overheating after around 100 such incidents were reported globally.

The battery that exploded was, however from the firm's BL-D3 series, and not from BL-5C that Nokia recalled a month ago, police said.


Bush Hears About Strain on Troops

Robert Burns of The Associated Press reports: "At a key juncture in the Iraq war, the military chiefs conveyed to President Bush on Friday their concern about a growing strain on troops and their families from long and repeated combat tours."

Iraq's Endless "False Hopes"

Writing for Consortium News, Robert Parry says, "Two-and-a-half years ago at another 'turning point' in the Iraq War, columnists at the Washington Post and other leading American newspapers were ecstatic over how the Iraqi national election was finally fulfilling the neoconservative dream of remaking the Muslim world. Now, however, some of the same columnists who praised the January 30, 2005, election are denouncing it as a failure that must be undone so George W. Bush's newest 'turning point' - the American troop 'surge' - can achieve its fullest potential."


Bis letzte Woche waren Analogien des Irakkriegs mit dem Vietnamkrieg bei amerikanischen Konservativen ungefähr so beliebt wie Nazivergleiche. Nun hat Präsident Bush dieses Tabu gebrochen.

Civilian Death Toll in Iraq Climbs

Reuters reports that "civilian deaths from violence in Iraq rose in August, with 1,773 people killed, government data showed on Saturday, just days before the US Congress gets a slew of reports on President George W. Bush's war strategy. The civilian death toll was up seven percent from 1,653 people killed in July, according to figures from various ministries."

Larry Craig: Scandals and national security

Senator Craig Expected to Resign Today

Carl Hulse of The New York Times reports that "Senator Larry E. Craig, Republican of Idaho, under intense pressure from party leaders to step down in the aftermath of an undercover sex sting, plans to resign his seat on Saturday, Republican Party officials said Friday. Through intermediaries and unusually harsh public statements and actions, party officials made it clear they wanted Mr. Craig to quit before Congress returned from its summer recess next week, hoping quickly to conclude an embarrassing episode that threatened to complicate an already difficult election cycle for Senate Republicans."

Scandals and national security … don’t mix

Frontiers of Freedom
by Kaye Grogan


What we desperately need in our leaders are ‘godly’ men. Not just in name only, but in actions. Every time you turn around another scandal rocks Washington sending the country into a vertigo type of condition with so many twists and turns. The latest scandal involving Senator Larry Craig of Idaho produced another ‘I didn’t do anything wrong’ abrupt press conference. The Republicans can add another resignation to their ever growing list...

Mobile firm dubbed sneaky

Residents in north Watford have criticised a "sneaky" mobile phone company for attempting to extend a huge phone mast inside the grounds of a primary school during the summer holidays.

Mobile phone firm Orange has applied for permission to construct three additional antennas and an extra dish on an existing telecommunication mast, as well as move it.

The mast is inside the grounds of Orchard Primary School, in Gammons Lane, but Orange wants to make the mast bigger and needs to rebuild it.
