    FILE - This Nov. 9, 2010 file photo shows NHL vice president Brendan Shanahan speaking to reporters during the annual fall meeting of the hockey league's general managers, in Toronto. Choosing not to follow the lead of the many minor and youth leagues that have banned all hits to the head, the NHL is instead cracking down on them case-by-case. New discipline czar Brendan Shanahan, only three years removed from his playing days, has been suspending players for the most egregious hits, and the message appears to be getting through.

Nigeria's anti-corruption agency is unable to challenge the corrupt politicians who cling to power in the oil-rich nation, according to a Human Rights Watch report released on Thursday. The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has only garnered four convictions against Nigeria's political elite since its creation in 2003, with those found guilty facing little or no prison time, the rights group said.

    St. Basil's Cathedral outside the Kremlin on the Red Square in Moscow, Russia, Friday, July 8, 2011. Russia will celebrate the 450th anniversary of St. Basil's Cathedral by opening an exhibition dedicated to the holy fool who gave his name to Moscow's onion-domed landmark. St. Basil, an eccentric religious fanatic, was one of the very few Muscovites who dared criticize tyrannical Czar Ivan the Terrible. The czar built the cathedral in 1561 to commemorate his victory over Mongol rulers who once dominated Russia, but over the centuries it became known as the place where St. Basil is buried.
