Family love my food - Beckham

DAVID Beckham has revealed his children adore his cooking - because he is a dab hand with pasta sauce.

The football star said he mastered the recipe while he was on loan to AC Milan.

Beckham said: "I always cook for them. They love my bolognese because when I lived in Italy for a while, I went to a cooking school."

And he told how his youngsters go without pocket money if they do not do their chores.

He said: "Without a doubt, they have to earn it."

Four climbers presumed dead

A SHALLOW avalanche on Alaska's Mount McKinley may not have killed four Japanese climbers, but the slide pushed them into a crevasse more than 100ft deep, the National Park Service said.

Spokeswoman Kris Fister said that the search for the climbers was permanently suspended after a mountaineering ranger found the climbing rope in debris at the bottom of the crevasse.

Yoshiaki Kato (64), Masako Suda (50), Michiko Suzuki (56) and Tamao Suzuki (63) are missing and presumed dead.

Man rescued as boat sinks

A US man who was rescued from his sinking sailboat off the coast of Mexico is spending Father's Day on a freighter bound for Panama, but his wife hopes to see him in time for their 23rd wedding anniversary.

Max Young, of Sacramento, California, was sailing alone late Tuesday about 40 miles west of La Playa, Mexico, when his 50ft boat was hit by a whale, lost its steering and started taking on water, Coast Guard Petty Officer Second Class Pamela Boehland said.

Sudanese told to leave Israel

ISRAEL was forcing 120 South Sudanese to leave the country, starting what could develop into a deportation of thousands of unauthorised African migrants who have poured into the Jewish state.

A visiting delegation from South Sudan did not oppose the repatriation.

Israel is offering a monetary incentive to migrants who leave voluntarily.
