Reality show contestant dies

A tough French reality tv show has been cancelled after a 25-year-old participant died of a heart attack on the first day of filming.

Koh Lanta, filmed in Cambodia, asks participants to complete physical challenges, often to win food.

Television station TF1 cancelled the 16th series after the death of Gerard Babin. The other contestants have returned to France.

Prince Harry back in US

Prince Harry is returning to the United States – but this time he's skipping Las Vegas.

The 28-year-old British prince, a supporter of charities that rehabilitate war veterans, will attend the 2013 Warrior Games.

On his last US visit, the third-in-line to the British throne stormed into the headlines when he was caught frolicking in the nude with a woman in his Las Vegas hotel room.

Bomb scare was date plea

A bomb squad thought a package marked 'Army' was suspicious, but it was just part of an elaborate plan by a guy trying to ask a girl to a dance.

Utah police rushed to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints temple in St George after the package was placed near a gazebo.

The investigation ended, however, when officers were told the package contained candy and a note asking a girl to a dance.
