London (AFP) - The chairman of Britain's biggest retailer Tesco will resign after the supermarket group was found to have overstated profits by £263 million ($422 million, 334 million euros), it announced on Thursday.
A gunman whose name was on a terror watch list killed a soldier and attempted to storm Canada's parliament Wednesday before the assembly's sergeant-at-arms shot him dead. The attack -- the second this week targeting Canadian military personnel -- came as Canadian jets were to join the US-led bombing campaign against Islamist militants in Iraq. Dave Bathurst, a family friend who said he met 32-year-ld suspect Michael Zehaf-Bibeau in a mosque about three years ago, said his friend did not at first appear to have extremist views or inclinations toward violence, the CBC reported. Bathurst last saw Mr. Zehaf-Bibeau praying in a Vancouver-area mosque six weeks ago and that he spoke of wanting to go to the Middle East soon.
