OSLO, Norway (AP) — Recalling the "burning, blinding and suffocating" horrors of chemical weapons, the head of a watchdog trying to consign them to history accepted the Nobel Peace Prize on Tuesday, as prize winners in medicine, physics and other categories also took bows for their awards.
Manchester (United Kingdom) (AFP) - Manchester United drew a line beneath recent back-to-back home defeats by overcoming Shakhtar Donetsk 1-0 at Old Trafford on Tuesday to secure top spot in Champions League Group A. Beaten 1-0 by first Everton and then Newcastle United in their last two home games, United survived several near-misses against the Ukrainian champions before prevailing through a second-half goal from Phil Jones. As well as eliminating Shakhtar, the result gave United three home victories in the group phase for the first time since they last won the competition in 2007-08. Manager David Moyes can now look forward to a favourable tie in the last 16 when the draw is made next Monday, while Shakhtar slip into the Europa League due to Bayer Leverkusen's 1-0 win over Real Sociedad in the other group game.
UEFA have announced the remainder of the Galatasaray v Juventus Champions League Group B clash will be played at 1300 CET (1200 GMT) on Wednesday after heavy snow forced the match to be halted. Tuesday's clash at the Ali Sami Yen Stadium was stopped in the 31st minute with the scoreline 0-0, as increasingly heavy snowfall made playing conditions nearly impossible. It means the remaining 59 minutes of the match will resume on Wednesday, with UEFA saying in a short statement on Twitter: "The @GalatasaraySK v @juventusfc match will resume at 13.00 CET tomorrow." However after a 25-minute delay, UEFA announced the match had been abandoned.
