Police discover woman's body

A man was being questioned today after a woman was found dead and a child left critically injured.

Police discovered the body of the 30-year-old victim at a house in Flint, north Wales, following reports of a disturbance at 1.30am yesterday.

The child -- understood to be a 12-year-old boy -- was rushed to hospital from the scene in the cul-de-sac at Cae Hir.

It is believed a man ran out of the house into the street shortly before the emergency services were called and shouted for help.

Judge to allow Apple action

A US judge says a monopoly abuse lawsuit against Apple and AT&T's mobile phone unit can go ahead as a class action.

The action consolidates several filed by iPhone buyers starting in late 2007, a few months after the first generation of Apple's smartphone went on sale.

The lawsuit seeks an injunction to keep Apple from selling locked iPhones and from determining what iPhone programs people can install.

Prodigy named most influential

The Prodigy have been crowned the most influential act of their genre in a poll.

A spokesman from the GlobalGathering festival, who commissioned the survey, said The Prodigy, who have had more than 20 million worldwide record sales, had to beat off stiff competition from French electronic duo Daft Punk.
