World - UK reporter sentenced after paying cop for stories

Anthony France of The Sun tabloid paid a police officer at London`s Heathrow airport over £22,000 (30,000 euros, $34,000) for 38 stories and pieces of information between 2008 and 2011.

The police officer, Constable Timothy Edwards of the counter-terrorism unit SO15, passed on stories about pilots being breath-tested and a drunken model getting angry after `catching her boyfriend romping with a woman,` the court heard.

World - Norwich down Middlesbrough to win promotion jackpot

Norwich City won the promotion jackpot as they swept back into the Premier League with a 2-0 victory over Middlesbrough in the Championship play-off final on Monday. Alex Neil`s side raced into a two-goal lead inside the first 15 minutes at Wembley thanks to goals from Cameron Jerome and Nathan Redmond and that early blitz was enough to secure an immediate and lucrative return to the Premier League just 12 months after the pain of relegation. Promotion is worth an estimated £120 million ($185 million), but, while the cash is important to Norwich`s prosperity, it was the thought of taking their place alongside the likes of Chelsea and Manchester United that fuelled the jubilant celebrations at the final whistle.

Business - Charter agrees to buy Time Warner Cable for $56 billion

John Malone`s Charter Communications Inc struck a $56 billion deal to buy Time Warner Cable Inc, seeking to combine the third and second largest U.S. cable operators to better compete against market leader Comcast Corp. The Federal Communications Commission immediately served notice that it would closely scrutinize the deal, focusing not only on absence of harm but benefits to the public. Charter, in which Malone-chaired Liberty Broadband Corp owns about 26 percent, is offering about $195.71 in cash-and-stock for each Time Warner Cable share, based on Charter`s closing price on May 20. A merger of Charter and Time Warner Cable, with other related deals, would create a company that controls more than 20 percent of the U.S. broadband market, according to research firm MoffettNathanson.

South Korea confirmed three more MERS cases Friday, bringing the total number of patients infected with the potentially deadly virus to 10, including a man who defied a quarantine protocol and travelled to China, health officials said.
