Lleyton Hewitt accuses Bernard Tomic of threatening him and his family

Friday 20:55 GMT

Lleyton Hewitt has sensationally claimed Bernard Tomic threatened him and his family and says Tomic will never play Davis Cup as long as he is captain.

Hewitt said he tried to help Tomic – who this week criticised Hewitt Davis Cup and Open wildcard player selection policy – but believed the 26-year-old former Australian No. 1 was now a lost cause. Speaking after his Australian Open doubles exit on Thursday, Hewitt said he had cut all contact with Tomic following the alleged abuse over the past 18 months.

My family took $60,000 from my late father’s bank account — and gave him morphine before he died

Saturday 02:25 GMT

I’m not going to get into who did what when your father was alive or how you know that he had $60,000 in his bank account.

If there’s any way you could point me in a direction where I could challenge what they’ve done with my father’s bank account, I would appreciate that. My father didn’t do anything for me while he was alive, so this is one way he can make amends for that.

Two teenage girls have been honoured by the Indian government after it was discovered they had pretended to be boys for four years to run their father’s barbershop when he became too ill to work.

The barbershop had initially closed but was the family’s only source of income, compelling the girls to try to run it themselves. Customers were initially sceptical about having their hair or moustaches trimmed by young women, while others “did not behave well towards us”, Jyoti told the Guardian.

Kentucky newspaper removes criticism of Trump from woman's obituary

Friday 12:41 GMT

A newspaper in Kentucky has apologised after refusing to print a line in an obituary of an 87-year-old woman that suggested frustration with Donald Trump had hastened her death.

Her daughter, Cathy Duff, said her brother had told her on Christmas Eve that the Cremation Society of Kentucky, which had been dealing with the obituary, had received an email from Gannett saying: “Per our policy, we are not able to publish the obituary as is due to the negative content within the obituary text.” The email, seen by the Washington Post, added: “You are more than welcome to remove the negative content so we may move forward with publishing if you wish.”

Under Trump, more kids separated at border than originally estimated: Report

Friday 19:05 GMT

Under President Donald Trump's administration, thousands more kids may have been separated from their parents at the border than was previously thought, according to an internal government report released Thursday, with a "steep increase" of such cases a year before "zero tolerance" began.

While the government has identified some 2,700 children were separated in 2018 under zero tolerance, "thousands of children may have been separated during an influx that began in 2017" before a federal judge ordered the government to reunite the families, the report found. "Zero-tolerance" was a policy announced in spring 2018 by then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions that mandated adults were prosecuted for trying to enter the country illegally.
