Sandiford, originally from Redcar in northeast England, wrote that she planned to sing the cheery popular song "Magic Moments" when facing the firing squad.

  • Theory of Sydney's loss backed by pictures

    A piece of the puzzle surrounding Australia's greatest naval tragedy, the 1941 loss of HMAS Sydney II, has clicked into place after researchers found evidence to support a long-held theory about how it was sunk. What appeared to be merely a shadow in photographs taken when the wreck was found in 2008 has been revealed by new images as a 15cm shell hole through the Sydney's bridge at the compass platform. The pictures, released yesterday, appear to confirm the theory that Australia's best-known warship was likely disabled by German raider HSK Kormoran within about 30 seconds of battle, hampering her ability to fight back.

  • Mother found dead along with son died of natural causes

    A woman found dead along with her infant son in a Pennsylvania apartment died of pneumonia rather than a drug overdose as first suspected, authorities said. Sara Kessler, 22, and her nine-month-old son, Carey, were found dead March 6 in their Millvale apartment, in the United States. The Allegheny County medical examiner's office said that her death was a result of natural causes after an autopsy concluded that she succumbed to bronchial pneumonia caused by a bacterial infection of the heart.

  • Migrants won't be picked for cash: Abbott

    Migrants wanting to come to Australia could be chosen based on how much they can pay rather than what skills they offer under a proposal the Productivity Commission is considering. The government has asked the commission to hold a year-long review of Australia's migrant intake, with special examination of the effects of making entry charges the primary basis for selecting migrants. The Australian migration program currently issues permanent residency visas to people with particular skills, people with families already in Australia and to people who meet special eligibility criteria.
