Indonesian divers have found the black box flight recorders of the AirAsia plane that crashed in the Java Sea a fortnight ago with 162 people on board, the transport ministry has said.
But they failed to retrieve it immediately from the seabed because it was stuck under debris from the main body of the plane, it added.

The conversation on the doorstep in Bents Green began so promisingly for Nick Clegg. The economy was going well, noted his Sheffield Hallam constituent, a 53-year-old quantity surveyor. Business at the man’s engineering firm was booming; they were taking on new staff. The deputy prime minister nodded enthusiastically. Then he heard the n-word. “I must admit, I normally vote for you,” said the man. “But this time I’m going for Ukip, purely because of Europe and immigration. I don’t trust Farage, but I will probably vote for them.”
Things didn’t really improve from there. “I think he [Farage] will be in coalition instead of you next time,” said the man, who declined to be named. Well, Clegg wasn’t going to let that one past. “I doubt that very much,” he began, as two bodyguards waited patiently at the gatepost, muttering to each other via their earpieces. “But here, in your neck of the woods, the choice really is between myself and the Labour party. Ukip aren’t going to win here.”

More than a decade after a series of shootings and bombings in the Jerusalem area, a trial is slated this week in New York to determine whether the Palestine Liberation Organisation and Palestinian Authority should pay up to $1bn to victims.
Jury selection begins on 13 January for the civil trial, which is expected to last 12 weeks and adds a new dimension to the long-running Middle East conflict and tensions among Palestinians, Israel and their respective allies.

• Kevin Mitchell: Stan Wawrinka ready to upset odds again
Roger Federer joined an elite club by claiming his 1,000th career win with a hard-fought victory over Milos Raonic in the final of the Brisbane International.
Only Jimmy Connors and Ivan Lendl had achieved the feat in the open era, and Federer reached the landmark by seeing off a resilient Raonic 6-4, 6-7, 6-4.

The Hollywood Foreign Press Agency is unpredictable, especially when it comes to the small screen, but put your money on House of Cards for starters
The Golden Globes are a different beast than other awards shows like the Oscars and the Emmys. Not only does the night feature both television and movies, but it is presided over by a small cabal of foreign writers rather than a large voting population of people who work in the industry. That means the Hollywood Foreign Press Association is generally outside of the politicking of other awards shows.
And the stakes are very different for the television awards. It might mean increased ratings or prestige, yes, but the Emmys, the medium’s big awards, aren’t until September. Winners on 11 January aren’t going to translate into more awards, as the film Golden Globes do for the Oscars. The HFPA likes to think of itself as more highbrow and innovative than the Emmys, which has never failed to give Modern Family a statue it didn’t deserve. That makes picking the winners of the Golden Globes television categories sort of like picking which flower box a drunken sorority girl is going to barf into as she totters home. You know it’s going to happen, but no one knows where. Just hopefully not on your shoes.

JK Rowling, author of the Harry Potter books, has condemned and mocked the tweet from Rupert Murdoch which insisted that even peaceful Muslims must bear responsibilities for jihadist attacks: “I was born Christian. If that makes Rupert Murdoch my responsibility, I’ll auto-excommunicate,” she tweeted on Sunday.
I was born Christian. If that makes Rupert Murdoch my responsibility, I'll auto-excommunicate. http://t.co/Atw1wNk8UX
Big jihadist danger looming everywhere from Philippines to Africa to Europe to US. Political correctness makes for denial and hypocrisy.
.@dom209 The Spanish Inquisition was my fault, as is all Christian fundamentalist violence. Oh, and Jim Bakker.
Maybe most Moslems peaceful, but until they recognize and destroy their growing jihadist cancer they must be held responsible.
