Quiche thieves in five-hour police standoff | UK news | theguardian.com

A pair of armed thieves became involved in a lengthy standoff with police having reportedly barricaded themselves into a cafe after breaking in to get quiche.

They broke into Cafe@Marshalls in Berwick-upon-Tweed, Northumberland, during the night. But when police surrounded the premises, they armed themselves with knives and a five-hour siege ensued.

Angela Marshall, who runs the cafe with her husband, said: “Apparently they were hungry and wanted some quiche. There was a little bit of money in the till, but I think they just wanted food and then it got out of hand.”

Marshall said the police phoned her at about 1am saying a break-in had taken place and when she got there she saw about 15 police cars.

After officers convinced the pair to come out they were arrested on suspicion of aggravated burglary.

A Northumbria police spokesman said: “At 12.35am on Monday, officers on patrol disturbed two intruders inside a cafe … in Berwick.

"The two men who were armed with knives refused to come out of the premises and threatened police. After speaking with officers the two men, aged 21 and 20, were arrested on suspicion of aggravated burglary. No one was injured during the incident."

… I asked her where the cooking was being done. “Prento!” she yelled. With that, a man in a cap poked his head out from behind a bar where others were inside drinking and playing dominoes.

“Who dat?” he asked.

“Come show di young man what we cooking,” said Cat. The man seemed puzzled.

“What mi …” he started to say, but Cat cut him off. “I say to show him what we cooking!” she said.

“Allright, allright,” the man said. “Come in, mi bredda. Pot ah bubble up now.”

When I got over there the scent hit me with force. I could smell the pepper, onion and other spices. Two pots, one with pork and the other with dumplings were set atop a wood fire and would be ready, Prento told me, in about 15 minutes.

“Is not me really start di cooking,” he said. “But mi helping out. Di man what really doing di cooking inside,” he said.

I asked him if everyone there would be partaking. “Yes man! Di whole of we going to eat. Yuh going to eat wid we too. For yuh is here and we not leaving yuh out!”

I told him that would be very nice, but insisted that I couldn’t impose. Also, I wasn’t very hungry.

“Yuh must eat!” he said. “Life short. Food will done pan yuh if yuh nuh eat,” Prento said.

I told him I certainly would eat with them, another time, but had to be going.

“Well, alright. When yuh come back wi set yuh up wid some tings fi carry back to town - some potato and yam,” he said. I told him that was a most generous offer.

“Is Contrivance yuh come, man,” he said. “When yuh come here yuh must feel welcome. People from around here is good people and we like stranger to always feel welcome and happy. When yuh come Contrivance yuh must not want to leave,” Prento said.

Iran sentences four to death over bank fraud with political fallout | World news | guardian.co.uk

Unnamed quartet to hang after £1.7bn embezzlement scandal raised questions over Iranian privatisation drive

An Iranian court has sentenced four people to death for a billion-pound bank fraud that tainted the government of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, according to state media.

Iranians, hit by sanctions and soaring inflation, were shocked by the scale of the £1.7bn embezzlement, which was exposed last year, and by allegations it was carried out by people close to the political elite, or with their assent.

Thirty-nine people were tried for the fraud, the biggest in the Islamic Republic’s history. Four of those had been sentenced to hang, the IRNA state news agency reported.

“According to the sentence that was issued, four of the defendants in this case were sentenced to death,” prosecutor general Gholam-Hossein Mohseni-Ejei told IRNA.

Two people had been sentenced to life prison terms, and others received jail sentences of up to 25 years, Mohseni-Ejei said. In addition to jail time, some were sentenced to flogging, ordered to pay fines and banned from government jobs.

Mohseni-Ejei did not name the defendants, whom Iranian media have identified only by their initials. State television broadcast parts of the trial but blurred out the faces of the accused.

The man described by Iranian media as the mastermind of the scheme, the businessman Amir Mansoor Khosravi, is said to have forged letters of credit from Iran’s Bank Saderat to fund dozens of companies and buy a steel factory from the state.

Mahmoud Reza Khavari, the former head of Iran’s biggest bank, the state-owned Bank Melli, resigned over the affair and fled to Canada, where records show he owns a £1.9m home. …

FLASH! Iran has rare lucid moment - film at eleven.
