Seemingly unfazed at being ousted from the Asian Athletics Association, scam-tainted Suresh Kalmadi on Monday said losing the presidential re-election bid to Qatar’s Dahlan Jumaan Al-Hamad has actually given him a chance to work at the “grassroots” level.
“I have no issues today and I congratulate Mr Al-Hamad for being elected as President. I am rather relieved that I will be able to work at the grassroots level in athletics,” Mr. Kalmadi said after losing the vote during the ongoing AAA Congress in Pune.

Syrian President Assad says 'his wife is pregnant'

Washington - Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, whose regime is embroiled in a now two-year civil war, has revealed that his wife Asma al-Assad is pregnant.

Assad let the news slip in a recent talk with mysteriously anonymous "visitors," who relayed his comments to the Beirut-based al-Akhbar newspaper, an aggressive outlet often described as aligned with such anti-Western movements as Hezbollah.

He mostly spent the interview insisting, against all evidence, that his regime was sure of imminent victory in the country's civil war and that the resistance came purely from foreign-funded extremists.

The article also strained to show Assad as coolly confident, including by apparently confirming rumors of his wife's pregnancy, the Washington Post reports.

According to the paper, past rumors have suggested that Assad became pregnant in June.

According to the Jordan-based al-Bawaba news site, a Syrian outlet named Akhbar Shabab Soriya (Syria Youth News) reported in November that she was five months pregnant.

If any of this is true, it would suggest that she is due in March, the paper added.
