Liverpool fine Luis Suarez for biting Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic

Liverpool managing director Ian Ayre insists Luis Suarez will not be sold despite his latest controversy in biting Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic.
The striker has been fined by the club, with the player asking for the money to be donated to the Hillsborough Family Support Group.But there is no question of him being offloaded in the summer despite worldwide condemnation of his inexplicable actions in yesterday's 2-2 draw at Anfield.
"It affects his future in the sense that we have to work with him on his discipline - but Luis is a very important player to the club," Ayre told liverpoolfc.com.
"As we keep saying, he signed a new four-year contract last summer and we'd all love to see him here throughout that contract.

The capture of second Boston bombing suspect, Dzhorkhar Tsarnaev

The 19 year old terror suspect was cornered on a small boat in the back of a house and captured alive Friday night. Dzhorkhar was found by a man who discovered blood trails to a boat at the backyard of a home in a Watertown neighborhood. The man looked inside the boat, noticed movement, and called the police.
An hour later, a seriously injured Dzhorkhar, who escaped an overnight shootout with police that left his older brother Tamerlan Tsarnaev dead, was captured and taken to the hospital, bringing an end to one of the the biggest manhunts in recent US history. Five days after the bombing, one suspect killed, another captured. Just five days! Nigeria needs to learn a thing or two from this. source: linda ikeji
