Fishy business

Srinagar: With the Valley enveloped in snow, demand for local dry fish called ‘Hoggard’, a savory winter delicacy of Kashmir, has increased. Situated in the northern most part of India, Kashmir Valley is witnessing heavy snowfall for the past several days.

Disrespecting the ‘Red’

London: Vandals have smashed and defaced the London tomb of Karl Marx in what the cemetery said appeared to be a deliberate attack against the philosopher's ideology. A marble plaque with the names of Marx and his family, the monument's oldest and most fragile part, was repeatedly hit with a blunt metal instrument, Ian Dungavell, who runs the cemetery trust, told AFP on Tuesday.
