'Thoughts and prayers' with families of killed soldiers

The "thoughts and prayers" of Canada are with the family and friends of two soldiers killed in attacks this week, the country's Prime Minister said.

Cpl Nathan Cirillo was shot and killed while guarding Canada's National War Memorial by a gunman who went on to the fire shots in Parliament.

The 24-year-old reservist was serving in the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders of Canada regiment.

On Monday, two Canadian soldiers were run over as part of a terrorist attack by a man police were tracking because he had been radicalised. One of the soldiers later died of his injuries.

In an address to the nation, Prime Minister Stephen Harper said Canada "would not be intimidated" and repeated his support for America's broad coalition against Islamic State.

Let there be no misunderstanding. We will not be intimidated. Canada will never be intimidated.

In fact this will lead us to strengthen our resolve and redouble our efforts - and those of our national security agencies - to take all necessary steps to identify and counter threats and keep Canada safe here at home.

– Stephen Harper

Cash incentives to cut obesity in 'radical NHS shakeup'

Bosses could offer overweight employees cash or shopping vouchers as part of NHS-backed incentives to lose weight, health bosses said as they laid out the future of the health service.

As part of their five-year plan, health chiefs want larger GP practices to take on more responsibility, hospitals provide care directly to care homes and volunteers to be offered tax breaks as incentives.

The NHS is in desperate need of cash and a "radical overhaul" and bosses pointed to the
the annual £30bn shortfall which would open up by 2020.

The UK has the highest rate of obesity in Europe after Iceland and Malta, according to a global study published in the Lancet Journal in May.

Some 67% of men and 57% of women in the UK were either overweight or obese, the study said.

Health bosses want overweight members of the public to shed the pounds as part of efforts to take strain off the health service.

Canadian parliament shooting throws Ottawa into chaos

Police are hunting suspects in connection with a gunman who shot and killed a soldier guarding the national war memorial and stormed the Canadian parliament building in Ottawa.

The gunman made it into the heart of the Canadian government building before he was shot and killed by the Sergeant-at-Arms.

Canadian MPs were forced to barricade themselves in the caucus room as they tried to protect themselves from the imminent threat of violence. The Canadian prime minister, Stephen Harper, was hustled away from Parliament Hill and was safe, a spokesman said.

The gunman has been identified as 32-year-old Michael Zehaf-Bibeau, but officials have so far not offered any indication about his motive.

We are very settled with the sentence. We cannot argue with the justice system

– June Steenkamp

On Monday Pistorius was sentenced to five years for the manslaughter of Reeva. He was also handed a suspended three-year sentence for firearms offences.
