Bad Buy Boogie

Israeli customs seized a shipment of 450 dancing Osama bin Laden and Saddam Hussein dolls from a northern Israeli port in Haifa.

The Chinese-made figurines were confiscated by the customs authority under an Israeli law banning incitement. An Israeli-Arab businessman from the northern village of Qafr Qara admitted to importing the 400 copies of the al Qaeda leader and 50 of the deposed Iraqi ruler, as a "gimmick" for sale to Jews and Arabs.

The law does not exactly state that Israelis cannot own a bin Laden doll, but Israeli authorities decided that neither he nor Saddam Hussein are educational role models. They can sure get down and boogie, though.

Fatal Police Beating

In Cincinnati, Ohio, a police officer's dashboard camera caught a violent struggle between police and a 400–pound man. The encounter led to the arresting officers delivering multiple blows to the suspect's torso with their batons.

According to police officials, Nathaniel Jones still had a pulse after officers took him into custody, but died only minutes after he was taken to University Hospital. A medical examiner has been assigned the task of determining the cause of Jones' death, but results are not expected for the next few days. Along with nursing their own injuries, the officers have been put on administrative leave while the case is investigated.

Gruesome Discovery

More than 100 whales were found beached on the remote west coast of Australia's Tasmania Island.

Local media said a diver operating in the area reported the incident.

Wildlife and marine experts investigating the site said the whales had been dead for some time.

Rosemary Gales, a marine biologist, said the whales would have stood a better chance of survival if not for the remoteness of the location.

The beached whales are said to belong to the pilot species, and investigators have also discovered some dolphins who were stranded in the same area, raising the possibility of the involvement of a predator.

"It's a multiple species stranding, which is unusual, and it does mean that another, perhaps a predator was involved, perhaps killer whales. Obviously it's speculation at this point but perhaps the animals were driven to shore by another larger predator," Gales added.
