A man died after a doctor failed to inspect an x-ray, the doctors union boss thinks it was a “chink in the system”.

TWO men have been arrested over a plot to kill US President Barack Obama with a giant homemade death ray.

The FBI arrested 49-year-old Glendon Scott Crawford, from Galway, New York, and his friend Eric J. Feight, 54, of Hudson, New York, foiling the pair’s plan to kill Obama, who Crawford blamed for the recent Boston marathon bombings.

Some had also distributed information outside the Auckland District Health Board.? Read more »
