Astronomers find most Earth-like planets yet

Best candidates yet found for habitable worlds, including two potentially life-friendly planets orbiting same star.

 Scientists using NASA's Kepler space telescope have found the best candidates yet for habitable worlds, including a pair of potentially life-friendly planets orbiting the same star, officials have said.
Two of the five planets orbiting a sun-like star called Kepler-62 are squarely in what astronomers call the habitable zone, researchers said in the journal Science as was reported on Thursday.
The habitable zone refers to planets that are are neither too hot nor too cold, and could possibly contain water.

"These two are our best candidates that might be habitable," said William Borucki, Kepler science principal investigator at NASA's Ames Research Centre.
The two planets are slightly larger than ours, and at least a couple of billion years older.
The first, 62e, is about 40 percent larger than Earth. It might be warm and may experience flashes of lightning, said Borucki.

Constellation Lyra

The second, 62f, is about 60 percent larger than our planet, and orbits its star every 267 days, close to Earth's annual trajectory of 365 days.
The planet may have polar caps, significant land masses and liquid water, Borucki said.
Both are orbiting a seven-billion-year-old star some 1,200 light years from Earth in the constellation Lyra.
They are close enough to their star to be warm, but not so near as to boil the oceans. They are far enough to maintain the likelihood of water without freezing the seas solid, Borucki explained.
Computer models indicate the two planets, likely are solid bodies comprised of rock, ice or a mix of rock and ice.

Pakistani tribal women to run for elections

Badam Zerri and Nusrat Begum make history by becoming first women to contest parliamentary seats from tribal regions.

 

The final list of candidates for Pakistan's May elections is expected to be published soon.


In the relatively lawless tribal areas, women are rarely seen in public and those who work outside their homes are targeted by the Taliban.


But two women are determined to make history by running for seats in the national assembly.

Bombing manhunt locks down Boston

One suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings is dead. The other -- his brother- - was on the run Friday, pursued by an army of police whose manhunt virtually shut down the city.

 A man identified by several sources as Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, died after an overnight shootout with police. He's the man described Thursday by the FBI as black-capped Suspect No. 1 in the attacks Monday that killed three. His brother, Dzhokar Tsarnaev, apparently escaped -- leading police to throw a huge dragnet around the region.

Developments moved quick
Connecticut authorities said a gray Honda CR-V with Massachusetts license plates had been recovered in the Boston area. An earlier alert said the vehicle "could possibly be occupied" by the surviving suspect. Meanwhile, heavily armed police swarmed over a Watertown, Massachusetts, neighborhood looking for the man, identified by Boston police as Dzhokar Tsarnaev, 19.
 
 Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, was wearing explosives and a triggering device when he died, a source briefed on the investigation told CNN's Deborah Feyerick.



A Maryland man who said he was the suspects' uncle told CNN affiliate WBZ that Tamerlan Tsarnaev "got what he deserved." "What can I say for people who have been murdered? Sympathy," Ruslan Tsarni said. But a former teacher at the high school Dzhokar Tsarnaev attended, who lives near Tsarnaev's residence now, described the younger brother as "a wonderful kid" who seemed incapable of such violence.

World's oldest man in Japan celebrates 116th birthday

 Japanese man Jiroemon Kimura, who holds the distinction of being the world's oldest living person, is celebrating his 116th birthday on Friday.
Mr Kimura, born on 19 April 1897, is believed to be the last known man to have lived across three centuries.
He worked as a postman until he was 65 years old before taking up farming until he was 90.
Guinness World Records has certified Mr Kimura as the world's oldest living person and the oldest living man.
Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said in a video message to Mr Kimura that "it is absolutely amazing" to have his two records.
The mayor of Kyotango City in western Japan where Mr Kimura lives also dropped by for a visit.
Mr Kimura currently lives at home under the care of his grandson's widow and eats his meals thrice a day.
He has 14 grandchildren and dozens of great- and great-great grandchildren, reports say.
He is one of only 12 people in the world still alive who was born before the turn of the 20th century, says the BBC's Rupert Wingfield-Hayes in Tokyo.
Japan is also home to the world's oldest living woman, Misao Okawa, who is 115 years old.

Pakistani police arrest Pervez Musharraf in Islamabad

A district court judge ordered General Musharraf to be held under house arrest, as Orla Guerin reports

Pakistan's former military ruler Pervez Musharraf has been arrested on charges relating to the unlawful detention of judges in 2007.


He appeared at a district court on Friday morning amid heavy security.


He was initially placed under house arrest at his home in Islamabad but later transferred to the police headquarters in the city.


Mr Musharraf has described the cases against him as politically motivated.


Thursday's order to arrest him was an unprecedented move against a former army chief who ruled the country for almost a decade, the BBC's Orla Guerin in Islamabad says.


Although he was present at court when the warrant was issued, police made no attempt to arrest him and he rapidly returned to his home on the outskirts of the city.

UN condemns Syria violence as 'unacceptable'

Rare joint agreement by UNSC demands end to violence and condemns rights abuses by Syrian government forces and rebels.

The UN Security Council has reached a rare agreement on Syria, an issue that has divided it for two years, calling for an end to the escalating violence and condemning human rights violations by Syrian government forces and rebels.

"The escalating violence is completely unacceptable and must end immediately," the council said on Thursday in a non-binding statement it referred to as "Press Elements on Syria".

After a discussion on the worsening humanitarian situation in Syria, the 15-nation council also "condemned the widespread violations of human rights by the Syrian authorities, as well as any human rights abuses by armed groups".

The statement came after the UN humanitarian affairs agency asked the Security Council to approve cross-border relief operations into Syria to deliver aid to millions of suffering civilians.

Valerie Amos made the appeal during a public briefing by the UN agency chiefs for humanitarian affairs, refugees, women in conflict and children in conflict.

The officials used the Security Council platform to appeal to the world for pressure to allow relief for Syria's civilians who have been wracked by the ongoing violence.

Dozens killed in Baghdad cafe explosion

Reports of up to 27 dead and dozens more injured in suicide attack on a Baghdad cafe.

  Up to 27 people are reported to have been killed and dozens more injured in a suicide bombing in a Baghdad cafe, a ministry of Interior source has told Al Jazeera.

The source said that a suicide bomber walked into the popular Dubai Cafe crowded with young people late on Thursday and detonated explosives.

The attack occurred ahead of provincial elections scheduled for the weekend.

Al Jazeera's Jane Arraf, reporting from Baghdad, said that the small space in which the suicide bomber detonated meant the injuries were "absolutely horrific."

She said that the Amariyah neighbourhood had been known as an al-Qaeda stronghold before locals turned against the group.
