India's Supreme Court upheld a law criminalising gay sex, setting aside a landmark lower court decision in 2009 which had overturned a colonial-era ban on homosexuality. A two-judge bench ruled that the courts should not intervene and that it was up to parliament to legislate on the issue in a decision that comes as a major blow for gay rights in the country. "It is up to parliament to legislate on this issue," Judge G.S. Singhvi, the head of the two-man bench, said in the ruling. The Delhi High Court ruled in 2009 that section 377 of the Indian penal code prohibiting people from engaging in "carnal acts against the order of nature" infringed the fundamental rights of Indians.
CANBERRA, Australia (AP) — General Motors Co. said Wednesday it will stop making cars and engines in Australia by the end of 2017, with nearly 2,900 jobs to be lost, because of high production costs and competition.An influential Chinese paper lashed out on Wednesday at comparisons between Nelson Mandela and China's jailed Nobel Peace Prize laureate Liu Xiaobo, saying Liu was a common criminal not worthy of any praise. Many Chinese internet users have noted the apparent contradiction of Beijing lauding Mandela's legacy at the same time that it continues a harsh crackdown on its own human rights activists. Microbloggers have particularly alluded to Liu, whose name is banned from appearing online by government censors. Chinese state media almost never mention well-known dissidents by name, making the editorial highly unusual and underscoring government anger at foreign criticism of its rights record, especially from the United States.
A cortege transporting the body of former South African president and anti-apartheid hero Nelson Mandela left the capital's main military hospital on Wednesday en route to the Union Buildings, where he will lie in state. Thousands of people lined the streets as a procession of police motorcycles lead the black hearse carrying Mandela's coffin, which was draped in the South African flag. Mandela's death last Thursday at the age of 95 has sparked an outpouring of grief and mourning in the country he led from 1994 to 1999 as its first black president. "This a significant moment for me and my children," said 48-year-old teacher Thapelo Dlamini, who had been on waiting on the street for two hours with his two children.

By Richard Cowan and David Lawder WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A bipartisan budget deal announced in the U.S. Congress on Tuesday, though modest in its spending cuts, would end three years of impasse and fiscal instability in Washington that culminated in October with a partial government shutdown. While praised by the Republican leadership of the U.S. House of Representatives, including Speaker John Boehner and Majority Leader Eric Cantor, the agreement faces a challenge from some House conservatives and will require support of the minority Democrats to pass. The backing of President Barack Obama, who also hailed the agreement as "a good first step," should help round up votes of his fellow Democrats. He urged Congress to quickly pass it.
President Barack Obama on Tuesday praised a bipartisan budget deal as a good start and urged the U.S. Congress to quickly pass a budget based on the accord. "Today's bipartisan budget agreement is a good first step," Obama said in a statement. "I want to call on members of Congress from both parties to take the next step and actually pass a budget based on this agreement so I can sign it into law." Obama praised elements of the deal, saying the modest rollback of the across-the-board "sequester" spending cuts would ease a drag on economic growth. He further gave a nod to long-feuding Democrats and Republicans for coming to terms and avoiding the brinkmanship that led to a government shutdown in October and a near-default in 2011.
RENO, Nev. (AP) — Chris Montes and his fellow volunteer rescuers first saw what looked to be children's footprints in the snow. When they saw tire tracks lead into the remote canyon but not back out, they raced ahead until they could make out the overturned Jeep they were searching for in the frigid backcountry.
ISLAMABAD (AP) — A Pakistani doctor won a $1 million grant on Tuesday to fight early child mortality in a small fishing village in southern Pakistan in a contest financed by an American entrepreneur to find innovative ways to save lives, The Caplow Children's Prize said.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Young American women are increasingly likely to receive pay nearly equal to their male counterparts, with earnings at 93 percent of men, a new study finds. Still, those women remain as pessimistic as their mothers and grandmothers regarding gender equality.
MONTEVIDEO, Uruguay (AP) — Uruguay has become the first country to create a national marketplace for legal marijuana, with the government regulating the production, sales and use of pot in a bold bid to control addiction and drug violence.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Alex Ovechkin took aim with little resistance, and the Washington Capitals staged an improbable comeback.
Ukrainian security forces on Wednesday stormed Kiev's Independence Square which protesters have occupied for over a week but the demonstrators defiantly refused to leave and resisted the police in a tense standoff. Eite Berkut anti-riot police and interior ministry special forces moved against the protestors at around 2:00 am (midnight GMT) in a move that prompted US Secretary of State John Kerry to express "disgust" over the crackdown. But the protesters, angry at President Viktor Yanukovych's rejection of an EU pact under Russian pressure, stayed on in part of the huge square and their numbers swelled to at least 10,000 after the police action. Dozens formed human walls to prevent more riot police from entering the square from adjoining roads, an AFP correspondent.
MANILA, Philippines (AP) — Asian stocks were mostly down Wednesday as investors factored in the prospect of the Federal Reserve reducing its lavish monetary stimulus this month.
By Richard Balmforth and Alissa de Carbonnel KIEV (Reuters) - Ukrainian riot police early on Wednesday poured into Kiev's Independence Square, confronting opposition leaders and protesters demonstrating against a government decision to rebuild trade ties with Russia rather than move closer to the European Union. Black-helmeted police entered the square in the heart of the snowbound capital where the demonstrators have been camping out for the past 10 days, tearing down barricades erected by the protesters. Clashes broke out as police tried to detain some of the protesters.
US air accident investigators hold a hearing Wednesday into the role that sophisticated cockpit automation might have played in the fiery crash of a South Korean airliner in San Francisco. Three passengers died when Asiana Airlines Flight 214 clipped a seawall, skidded out of control and burst into flames upon landing after an otherwise routine flight from Seoul on July 6. Another 182 passengers and crew aboard the Boeing 777 were injured -- and first indications suggested the pilots approached the runway at well below the optimum speed for landing. Wednesday's nearly 12-hour hearing was supposed to be a two-day affair, but its scheduled start Tuesday was postponed due to a federal government shutdown prompted by wintry weather in Washington.
WASHINGTON (AP) — Ahh, the first year of a baby's life — learning to sit up, crawl, even walk. But how about playtime in a baby seat with an iPad and some cool apps?Toyota Motor Corp is likely to close its production in Australia, after General Motors Co said it would end vehicle and engine manufacturing in the country by the end of 2017, an Australian labor union official said on Wednesday. The world's second-largest auto maker said it was closing its Holden plants in South Australia and Victoria states, affecting 2,900 jobs, which would leave Toyota as the only auto maker in the country. GM's exit would make it "highly likely" that Toyota would also end its production in Australia, the Australian Manufacturing Workers' Union official told reporters.
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Roy Hibbert threw all the inside body jabs Tuesday night. Paul George finished it off with the knockout blow.
DALLAS (AP) — A Texas woman and former actress pleaded guilty Tuesday to sending ricin-laced letters to President Barack Obama and New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, under a deal that her attorney has said would cap prison time at 18 years.
Congressional negotiators reached a modest two-year US budget deal that would avoid a repeat of October's government shutdown, signalling a temporary truce in fiscal wars that have paralyzed Washington. The agreement, brokered by Democratic Senator Patty Murray and House Republican Paul Ryan, sets the new annual budget caps for 2014 and 2015 at just over $1 trillion -- slightly higher than current levels -- and partially repeals the unpopular automatic budget cuts known as "sequestration." Importantly, a budget bill under the agreed framework would free legislators to focus on how to reduce the main drivers of the country's debt, such as entitlement programs including Medicare, without the specter of a budget showdown every six or 12 months. "I see this agreement as a step in the right direction," Ryan, the 2012 Republican vice presidential nominee and chairman of the House Budget Committee, told reporters, noting that the deal does not raise taxes on Americans.
NEW YORK (AP) — For Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett, seeing Deron Williams back far outweighed seeing the Celtics again.
BOSTON (AP) — Democrat Katherine Clark easily defeated three opponents Tuesday to win a vacant congressional seat and become the fifth woman to represent Massachusetts in the U.S. House.
Bangui (Central African Republic) (AFP) - President Francois Hollande said France's intervention in the Central African Republic is dangerous but vital to avoid a bloodbath, during a visit to shore up morale after two elite French soldiers were killed. Hollande flew into the curfew-bound capital Bangui from Johannesburg after attending a memorial service for South African peace icon Nelson Mandela. Upon arrival, the French leader paid tribute to his country's two fallen soldiers, bowing before their coffins at a base at Bangui airport. "In Bangui itself, nearly 400 people were killed... There was no time to procrastinate," he added, referring to a day of bloodshed last week.NEW YORK (AP) — The former right-hand man of disgraced financier Bernard Madoff told a jury Tuesday that a crying Madoff revealed to him his financial empire was a gigantic fraud just before the rest of the world learned the truth nearly five years ago.
New York police have published an interactive map of crime data across the city of 8.4 million that allows the public to pinpoint theft and violence in their neighborhoods. The online resource is the latest service offered by the largest police department in the United States that has presided over an astonishing fall in violent crime over the last two decades. The map, available at http://maps.nyc.gov/crime/, enables people to search and access basic data on crime in their street, neighborhood or zip code across all five boroughs. New York, once notorious for its violent crime, now trumpets itself as the safest large city in the United States with its lowest murder rate in 50 years.
BANGKOK (AP) — Protesters waging a surreal political fight to oust Thailand's elected prime minister are trying to establish what amounts to a parallel government — one complete with "security volunteers" to replace the police, a foreign policy of their own and a central committee that has already begun issuing audacious orders.
Struggling automaker GM Holden on Wednesday said it will shut down its manufacturing operations in Australia by 2017, shedding 2,900 jobs, in a major blow to the nation's car industry. "The decision to end manufacturing in Australia reflects the perfect storm of negative influences the automotive industry faces in the country," GM chief executive Dan Akerson said in a statement. Holden's decision to end manufacturing and transition to a national sales company follows US giant Ford in May announcing it would stop making vehicles at its unprofitable Australian factories in 2016, with the loss of 1,200 jobs.
LOS ANGELES (AP) — A second man charged with stealing a piece of the car in which "Fast & Furious" actor Paul Walker died has surrendered.
Munich (Germany) (AFP) - Manchester City's manager Manuel Pellegrini admitted keeping his stars fresh for Saturday's Premier League visit from leaders Arsenal had been a factor in their stunning 3-2 win at Bayern Munich. On a historic night for the club, City fought back from two-goals down to break the holders' record 10-match Champions League winning streak as Bayern coach Pep Guardiola suffered his first defeat in major competition with the German side. Bayern also fell to their first home defeat -- after 18 wins in Munich -- since losing 2-0 at home to Arsenal in last season's knock-out stages of the Champions League in March.
The fans of country music love Luke Bryan and Florida Georgia Line and they proved it again Tuesday during the American Country Awards.
The modest $85 billion U.S. budget deal reached in Congress on Tuesday gives both Democrats and Republicans something to brag about. Democrats can say they found relief from forced spending cuts on education and other domestic spending programs, while avoiding major changes to Medicare and Social Security benefits for the elderly. But airline travelers, newly hired federal employees and some military retirees would lose out in the agreement to be presented to Congress for approval in the next two weeks. The deal sets federal spending levels for two years and its proponents argue that it will help Congress end its budget warfare through at least October 1, 2015.
Former champions AC Milan and Borussia Dortmund go into their final group matches needing a result in their respective games to ensure they continue their campaign for the trophy in the New Year.

Galatasaray require a win to pip Juventus to second place.
