Russia pushes UN to focus on N.Korea sanctions' toll

Russia pushes UN to focus on N.Korea sanctions' toll The UN Security Council on Wednesday extended the work of a key panel that investigates North Korean sanctions-busting following weeks of negotiations over Russia's demands for a stronger focus on the humanitarian impact of the tough measures. The council unanimously approved a US-drafted resolution renewing for a year the mandate of the panel of experts which reports to the UN sanctions committee on North Korea.

After having its undefeated start to the season come to an end in Round 4, Geelong is breathing a major sigh of relief after Patrick Dangerfield avoided suspension.

The Cats star was in hot water after he lashed out at GWS Giants tagger Matt de Boer after de Boer paid close attention to him in the Giants' four-point win, but escaped with a fine.

Dangerfield's strike of de Boer was deemed as "Intentional Conduct with Low Impact and Body Contact" by the Match Review Officer and he was hit with a $3000 fine as a first offence.

Dangerfield was also able to avoid suspension for a second incident involving de Boer which saw him violently swing his arm back after being held by the Giant.

For this incident, the Match Review Officer deemed that de Boer was bent over from an earlier strike and that the force was insufficient to constitute a charge.

Dangerfield was not the only Cat to avoid suspension from the Round 4 thriller, with skipper Joel Selwood fined $1000 for "Careless Conduct with an Umpire".

Big man Esava Ratugolea can also accept a $2000 sanction with an early plea after he was charged with engaging in "Rough Conduct" with Giants ruckman Shane Mumford.

Benedict Cumberbatch ‘hits cyclist while driving a green Lamborghini before the man gets up and SLAPS the Sherlock star’ Benedict Cumberbatch reportedly knocked a man off his new bike while driving along a country lane and moments later was slapped by the furious cyclist. The actor, 42, allegedly caught the arm of the rider, Michael Lawrence, 63, during the collision which took place in Freshwater, Isle Of Wight last September. Mr Lawrence, affectionately known as Scooby, is claimed to have got up off the floor and immediately slapped Cumberbatch - before realising he was an A-list star.

However, despite the Cats trio getting off without a suspension, the floundering Blues were not so lucky.

Carlton is already smarting after its heartbreaking last-gasp loss to the Gold Coast Suns and will be without young midfielder Will Setterfield for its next two matches.

Setterfield was charged with engaging in "Rough Conduct" with Gold Coast's Will Powell during the second quarter of the clash and was handed a two-match suspension with an early plea.

Setterfield's incident was deemed as "Careless Conduct with High Impact and High Contact" by the AFL's Match Review Officer.
