Man falls through New York City pavement into 'rat-filled chasm'
A man was trapped in a hole teeming with rats for half an hour after a New York City sidewalk collapsed underneath him. Leonard Shoulders dropped almost 15 feet into the sinkhole and was unable to cry for help out of fear the rats would get in his mouth. "Rats crawling on him. He can't move. He just… it was so bad," Mr Shoulders' brother Greg White told NBC News. "He didn't wanna yell 'cause he was afraid there was gonna be rats going inside his mouth." The victim had been waiting for a bus in the Bronx when the concrete cracked open and swallowed him whole. The 33-year-old was hospitalised with a broken leg and arm after firefighters worked to extradite him from the pit. He remains in St. Barnabas Hospital and is in a stable condition, but family members have stressed the mental impact of the incident. "He's traumatised," Mr Shoulders' Mother Cindy White said. "He was like, 'Ma, the rats down there were ridiculous.' He was like, 'They were like so big'," she added.

After 50 Years, a Suspect Emerges in a Cold Murder Case
Rosalie Sanz was a teenager in 1969 when she looked out the window of her family's San Diego home on a dark November night and saw two men in suits. She remembers her mother listening quietly to the detectives telling her that her 23-year-old daughter, Mary Scott, had been murdered."It was very brief," Sanz said. "They closed the door, and my mom came and told me that my sister had been killed."The case went cold for half a century.But on Tuesday, the San Diego Police Department announced that with the help of forensic genealogy, a suspect had been identified. On Oct. 24, John Jeffrey Sipos, 75, was arrested in Schnecksville, Pennsylvania, in the murder of Scott, the police said. Sipos is being held in the Lehigh County Detention Center awaiting extradition to San Diego, they said.Charges will be filed this week in the "cold case murder," Tanya Sierra, a spokeswoman for the San Diego County District Attorney's Office, said in an email.The case is one of the latest to benefit from advances in DNA and genetic genealogy, which have given new momentum to dormant murder files in the United States, helping investigators track down suspects and families find justice.The first high-profile case to be cracked with genetic genealogy, which relies on identifying DNA collected at a crime scene by searching for the perpetrator's relatives in genealogy databases, was that of Joseph James DeAngelo, also known as the Golden State Killer, who was arrested in Sacramento, California, in 2018.DeAngelo, who pleaded guilty to a series of

Row over basmati rice causes latest India and Pakistan friction
Tensions are once again boiling over between India and Pakistan - only this time over basmati rice, the long-grained aromatic staple of dinners around the world. Islamabad has taken offence to New Delhi's plans to seek permission from the European Union (EU) to export the grain as a product unique to India, known as protected geographical indication (PGI). Other products the EU currently recognises as having PGI status, described as possessing "qualities, reputation or characteristics relating to its place of origin", include Stilton cheese and Scottish whisky. Pakistan fears that if India is able to obtain this qualification standard, it will suggest that Indian basmati rice is superior to the Pakistani equivalent and harm its exports. Currently, the EU imports two-thirds of its approximately 900,000 metric tonnes of basmati rice annually from India, although Pakistan makes up the remaining third.
