"More African American men are in prison or jail, on probation or parole than were enslaved in 1850, before the Civil War began," Michelle Alexander told a standing room only house at the Pasadena Main Library this past Wednesday, the first of many jarring points she made in a riveting presentation.

Alexander, currently a law professor at Ohio State, had been brought in to discuss her year-old bestseller, The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness . Interest ran so high beforehand that the organizers had to move the event to a location that could accommodate the eager attendees. That evening, more than 200 people braved the pouring rain and inevitable traffic jams to crowd into the library's main room, with dozens more shuffled into an overflow room, and even more latecomers turned away altogether. Alexander and her topic had struck a nerve.

Spain's Catalonia bids farewell to bullfighting with final bullfight in Barcelona

© Unknown
Spain's powerful northeastern region of Catalonia bids farewell Sunday to the country's emblematic tradition of bullfighting with a final bash at the Barcelona bullring.

The sold-out evening event at the 20,000-seat Monumental ring is the last fight scheduled this season. A regional ban on the bloody pastime takes effect Jan. 1, 2012.

Bullfighting's popularity in Catalonia has plunged in recent decades and the Monumental is its last functioning ring.

The Catalan Parliament banned the spectacle in July 2010 following a signature-collection campaign by animal rights activists.

French farmer tied elderly woman to a ladder, dismembered her while she was still alive, then laughed about it in court

Definitely not human
A French farmer who bound an elderly German woman to a ladder before sawing off her limbs while she was still alive has been sentenced to life in prison.

Yves Bureau was found guilty of torturing and murdering Edith Muhr at his farmhouse in Verdon in the Dordogne region of France.

Bureau laughed and joked when macabre photos of Mrs Muhr's remains were shown on a large screen at his trial.

And the 58-year-old reportedly gave 27 different versions of events to officers investigating the killing of his victim.

The court heard that Mrs Muhr was an attractive and joyful lady who loved to growing carrots before feeding them to donkeys she passed on frequent country walks.

On the day of the murder, she was walking from her home to meet her husband for lunch when she entered onto Bureau's land.

However when she failed to appear he raised the alarm.

Detectives established that Bureau had intercepted her and dragged her into a barn at his farm.

Pope Benedict XVI has led an outdoor mass in Germany despite shots being fired close to the service.

A man fired an air-gun at a guard at the edge of the security zone about an hour before the service in the eastern city of Erfurt, Vatican and local officials said.

The pope's spokesman, the Reverend Federico Lombardi, said there was "no worry" among the papal entourage about the incident, and the pontiff was not informed about it before the mass, which was attended by 30,000 people.

Police said the alleged shooter had been arrested and that there were no injuries.

Forty dead as government forces battle three groups: pro-democracry activists, tribal fighters and renegade soldiers

At least 40 people have been killed in Yemen amid fierce fighting between troops loyal to president Ali Abdullah Saleh and his military and civillian opponents in the capital, Sana'a.

Around the city, government forces fought on three fronts against a rebel army division, tribal fighters and pro-democracy demonstrators. The violence raged a day after Saleh's sudden return to the country on Friday, which has prompted fears of all-out civil war.

At least 11 soldiers were killed and 112 were wounded when government forces shelled the headquarters of the renegade 1st Armored Division, according to pro-opposition officer Abdel-Ghani al-Shimiri.

There have been street battles and exchanges of shelling all week between Republican Guards led by Saleh's son and the rebel division led by Major General Ali Mohsen al-Ahmar.
