1. Baden-Clay trial
UPDATE: Bayden-Clay daughter gives evidence in court.
The Bayden-Clay murder trial continues today, with a forensic pathologist and one of the Bayden-Clay daughters giving evidence.
Dr Nathan Milne, who conducted the post-mortem examination for the coroner, told the court that he did not believe Allison had died from falling off the bridge where she was found.
“My assessment of the death scene is that it was not from a natural death,” he told the court.
One of the Bayden-Clay daughters, aged 8, gave evidence today through a recorded interview.
In her video evidence she said, “I saw her last night… In my room. She was saying goodnight to me.”
The second of the Bayden-Clay daughters, will be the 15th witness. She is only 10-years-old, and will give evidence through a pre-recorded video that was filmed in 2012.
The young girl has said when her mother disappeared that, “She went for a walk this morning and she hasn’t returned.”
“That’s about all I know about what happened,” she said at the time.

Baden-Clay is accused of murdering his wife, Allison June Baden-Clay, on April 19, 2012. He pleaded not guilty.

3. Mob sexually assault women in Egypt
Seven men have been arrested over several incidences of sexually assaulting women on Sunday at Egypt’s inauguration celebrations for their new president.
The arrests come amid growing outrage over a graphic video that appears to show a woman being stripped naked and attacked in Cairo’s Tahrir Square.
The footage allegedly shows a group of men surrounding a woman, the lower part of whose body is naked and bloodied. Towards the end of the video, the woman appears to have been stripped completely naked. She eventually reaches an ambulance parked nearby.
According to the BBC, the user who uploaded the video said it was filmed in Tahrir Square on Sunday, but it appears it was first posted online on Wednesday.
Also causing outrage are comments by a female presenter on a TV channel, al-Tahrir.
