And as the finals approach for Wimbledon 'Murray Mania' seems to have well and truly kicked in after a great two-set down comeback beating Spain's Fernando Verdasco.

    Last year they were voted Schoenbrunn Zoo’s favourite animal. Now the meerkat family has increased substantially with the addition of six new babies. “We are of course thrilled that all six are doing great at the moment” says the zoo’s director Dagmar Schratter. “At birth, meerkats are blind and naked. They spent the first few weeks in the safety of their burrow but to the delight of the visitors they are now already exploring their surroundings running the rest of the clan off their feet.”

    A snapping turtle is so addicted to smoking that it consumes 10 cigarettes every day. And if the amphibian from Changchun, capital of northeast China's Jilin Province, doesn't get its nicotine fix it will race around making squeaking noises. The turtle belongs to a resort restaurant and according to Chef Tang Wenyin he let the turtle try a cigarette a month ago. Surprisingly, the turtle started to suck the butt of the cigarette, and it quickly burnt to the end. Then the next day, when Tang was enjoying a cigarette, the turtle walked over and stared at him. "I then lit a cigarette for him, and it smoked it with satisfaction." Tang added: "Now each day it needs at least 10 cigarettes, and I barely could afford its hobby. If I don't give him cigarettes, he would hover around my feet, making squeaking sounds, and chase me wherever I go".

A statement on the Egyptian president's office's Twitter account has quoted Mohammed Morsi as calling military measures "a full coup." The denouncement was posted shortly after the Egyptian military announced it was ousting Morsi, who was Egypt's first freely elected leader but drew ire with his Islamist leanings. The military says it has replaced him with the chief justice of the Supreme constitutional Court, called for early presidential election and suspended the Islamist-backed constitution.(AP Photo/Amr Nabil)
