MOGADISHU, Somalia (AP) — Blood spattered utensils, bullet-pocked walls and overturned chairs mark the reception area of a prominent hotel in the Somali capital following an attack by Islamic extremists that killed at least 24, including six attackers.
European figure skating champion Javier Fernandez became the first Spanish man to win the world singles title Saturday, overcoming last year's winner Yuzuru Hanyu in dramatic style in Shanghai. Fernandez, who has twice won the bronze medal at the World Figure Skating Championships, scored 181.16 in the final free skate to give him 273.90 overall, edging Japan's Olympic champion who scored 175.88 and finished second overall with 271.08. Fernandez finished second at Saturday's skate, while Hanyu settled for third. Fernandez nailed a quadruple toeloop before falling on a quadruple Salchow-triple toeloop combination, but continued his performance in assured fashion to clinch his biggest title.
