A 32-year-old man placed under house
arrest for drug-related charges fled his
Livorno home and begged police to keep
him behind bars. The reason?
His nagging wife was driving him
crazy, he told Italian police, Breitbart.com
reported. So rather than serve out his
time at home, Walid Chaabani broke
from his house and ran right into the
arms of the Carabinieri, the name for
Italy's military police force, and asked
them to put him behind bars.
He told police he was "tired of continu-
ously fighting with his wife," Breitbart
said. And he "asked explicitly to be put
back in prison," as "living with his wife"
had become "particularly difficult and un-
bearable," he said to police.
Chaabani won his plea. Court officials
granted him an imprisonment order, and
he was transported to jail to serve the
remainder of his time.
This isn't the first time police have
fielded such a request. Last June, a 19-
year-old man facing the same situation---
house arrest---also asked for jail time.
The New Zealand Herald reported.
His reason: He was tired of playing
Xbox video games. In that case, also, the
judge granted the request and the
Whangarei man was allowed to serve
the final month of his yearlong incarcera-
tion in Ngawha Prison.
An eight-year-old girl wearing a suicide vest has been
detained in southern Afghanistan, officials said.
Interior Ministry spokesman Sediq Sediqi said an
Afghan soldier spotted the girl wearing the suicide
jacket and she was arrested before she could carry out
the attack on border police, BBC reported.
The girl was held on Sunday night. She is believed to
be as young as eight, though some news outlets re-
ported her to be ten, and she is thought to be the sister
of a prominent Taliban commander, BBC said.
Police said she was encouraged to carry out the at-
tack by her brother.
The girl is said to be in a state of shock and has been
transferred to the provincial capital of Lashkar Gah, BBC
reported. ---Washington Times
Royal commute: Prince

LONDON---Prince William has started a special ten-

bridge, travelled yesterday on the train from London's
King Cross station.
He is embarking on a tailored course designed to help
him manage the lucrative Duchy of Cornwall estate
which he stands to inherit from his father, Prince

Chinese icebreaker Snow
Dragon breaks free from sea ice
Chinese state media say the country's icebreaker has
broken free from heavy sea ice in Antarctica after be-
coming trapped last week.
The Xue Long, or Snow Dragon, reported becoming
trapped on Friday, a day after rescuing those on board a
Russian research ship that became stuck on Christmas
The official Xinhua News Agency reported from the
Xue Long that it successfully escaped yesterday after
making a 100-degree turn and pushing away the ice,
thereby splitting it and opening up a channel of water.
The research ship, Akademik Shokalskiy, had been re-
tracing Sir Douglas Mawson's Antarctic expedition and
conducting scientific research when it became trapped
in heavy ice. The 52 scientists and tourists on board
were airlifted to safety more than a week later by a heli-
copter that was flown off the Sea Dragon. (AP)
