New York police disband Muslim 'eavesdropping' unit

The New York Police Department has disbanded a secret programme designed to eavesdrop on Muslims to identify potential terrorism threats. The Demographics Unit had dispatched plainclothes detectives to listen to conversations and build files on places frequented by Muslims, US media say. The squad had been the subject of two federal lawsuits in the past, and drew ire from civil rights groups. It is also said to have sowed Muslim mistrust for law enforcement. "This reform is a critical step forward in easing tensions between the police and the communities they serve, so that our cops and our citizens can help one another go after the real bad guys," the office of New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio wrote in a statement.

Birth of 'new Saturn moon' witnessed

Birth of 'new Saturn moon' witnessed
Scientists say they have discovered what could be the birth of a new moon in the rings of Saturn. Informally named Peggy, the object would become the 63rd moon in Saturn's orbit if confirmed. The evidence comes from a black-and-white image of the outermost ring captured by the Cassini spacecraft. "Witnessing the birth of a tiny moon is an exciting, unexpected event," said Linda Spilker of Nasa's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL). Scientists noticed a bump or distortion on the edge of the ring which they believe indicates the presence of some kind of object. It is estimated that Peggy may be about half a mile in diameter and it is almost certainly made of ice. Lead scientist Prof Carl Murray of Queen Mary University of London said that this was the first time this kind of observation had been made.

Pistorius trial: Reeva Steenkamp shot in 'rapid fire'

Pistorius trial: Reeva Steenkamp shot in 'rapid fire'
The girlfriend of Oscar Pistorius was shot in quick succession as she fell down, a forensics expert has told the South African athlete's murder trial. This differs from a police ballistics witness who said there was short break between the first and second shots. Mr Pistorius denies intentionally killing Ms Steenkamp in early hours of Valentine's Day last year. He says he fired rapidly in fear through the toilet door after he mistook Ms Steenkamp for an intruder. The prosecution says the 29-year-old model and law graduate was deliberately killed after the couple had an argument. The double amputee Olympic and Paralympic athlete faces 25 years to life in prison if convicted of premeditated murder. The trial has been adjourned until Thursday, which will be the last day before a break; proceedings will resume on Monday 5 May.

Galaxy S5 fingerprint scanner hacked

Galaxy S5 fingerprint scanner hacked
The fingerprint sensor on Samsung's Galaxy S5 handset has been hacked less than a week after the device went on sale. Berlin-based Security Research Labs fooled the equipment using a mould it had previously created to spoof the sensor on Apple's iPhone 5S. The researchers said they were concerned that thieves could exploit the flaw in Samsung's device to trigger money transfers via PayPal. The payments firm played down the risk. "While we take the findings from Security Research Labs [SRL] very seriously, we are still confident that fingerprint authentication offers an easier and more secure way to pay on mobile devices than passwords or credit cards," it said. It added that even if users were hacked it would cover their losses.

Asafa Powell labels ban as ‘patently unjust’; to file CAS appeal

Asafa Powell labels ban as ‘patently unjust’; to file CAS appeal
In a release to the media, Jamaican sprinter Asafa Powell said his 18-month ban by the JADCO disciplinary hearing after he returned an adverse analytical finding, is “not only unfair”, but “it is patently unjust”. Powell stated that he took a legal supplement “Ephiphany D1”, and claimed that it turned out to be contaminated with oxilofrine. “My team commissioned two private laboratories that confirmed that oxilofrine was present in the supplements, despite it not being listed as an ingredient on the bottle nor on it’s website. I would also like to share that upon realizing that the supplement contained oxilofrine my team made contact with both the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) and the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA), who not only ordered samples of the supplement from the manufacturer, but also tested and confirmed our findings” said Powell. The former 100m record holder announced that his team has begun proceedings to file an appeal to the Court of Arbritration for Sport (CAS) in Switzerland and reiterated that he has never knowingly taken any banned substances.
