A 10-year-old Afghan boy who was declared a hero after fighting the Taliban has been shot dead by insurgents while on his way to school.

Wasil Ahmad, who fought the Taliban alongside his uncle on many occasions, was killed on Monday near his home in Tirin Kot, capital of the southern Uruzgan province, said deputy police chief Rahimullah Khan.

Wasil had been a local celebrity of sorts. Photographs widely circulated on social media show him holding an automatic weapon and wearing a uniform and helmet.

Barcelona star Lionel Messi is hoping to arrange a meeting with an Afghan boy who shot to fame after pictures of him dressed in a striped plastic bag jersey went viral, Kabul's football federation said on Monday.

Five-year-old Murtaza Ahmadi idolises the Argentina forward but a jersey of his favourite player is beyond the means of his poor family in the volatile province of Ghazni near Kabul.

His older brother Homayoun, 15, made him the blue-and-white-striped plastic bag with Messi's named scrawled in marker pen and posted the photos of Murtaza wearing it on Facebook in mid-January.

Canberra-born Anderson is doing for food what Jamie XX did for music: nailing a dynamic, affordable yet uniquely artisan product.

People are queuing half way down to Camberwell Green for his latest eaterie "Meat Fuck". The sign on the door that reads "Eat your chops and piss off" might be said with a slight tongue-in-cheek, but as anyone who's stayed much longer than half-an-hour has probably found out, he means it.

Jana Kinsman has a bee in her bonnet. The Chicago-based illustrator and year-round cyclist, who also happens to be Miss October 2012 in the cycling-centric TyK pinup calendar, had an epiphany about keeping beehives buzzing in the urban jungle. After apprenticing at The Blessed Bee urban apiary in Eugene, Oregon, she brainstormed the master plan for Bike•a•Bee, a distributed network of beehives in the Chicago area that Kinsman will care for by pedaling from hive to hive. Her start-up, which recently reached its funding goal of $7,000 on Kickstarter (additional donations mean more beehives), will connect local urban farms and gardens with bees, which will produce luscious honey while also helping to pollinate the plants. Find out more about Kinsman and Bike•a•Bee in this clip from the Sundance Channel:Jana Kinsman and Bike•a•Bee.

Thomas Lyth, a colleague and friend from Lagerback’s time with Sweden, probably summed Lagerback up very accurately in a few sentences when talking to Fokus in 2008. “I absolutely wouldn’t call him boring. To say that he is funny is perhaps to take it a bit far, but he is socially competent.
