Weird and wonderful news from around the world.

SPAIN: A man has been arrested in Spain for curling up inside a suitcase, which was loaded into the hold of an airport bus. He then crept out of the suitcase and set about stealing items from passengers’ luggage. It’s like something from a Jean-Pierre Jeunet film!
FRANCE: French broadcasters have allegedly banned the use of the words ‘Facebook’ and ‘Twitter’ on air, in an attempt to end surreptitious marketing. Presenters are now to ask viewers to follow them on social networks, rather than refer them directly to Twitter.
CHINA: A Chinese student has sold a kidney to buy an iPad and iPhone having met a broker online, who said he could help him sell his kidney for £1,825. His parents were gutted when they heard the news.
AUSTRALIA: Aelita Andre is the world’s youngest professional painter, aged just 4 years old. She earns up to £6,100 for her work and has her own show in New York. Not bad, for a toddler.
UK: A one-legged man has been arrested in Sheffield for robbery after leaving a tell-tale trail of single footprints at the scene of the crime. It’s like a bad game of cluedo.
