Arts and culture
  • The remains of surrealist painter Salvador Dalí are exhumed following a Madrid court order on settling the paternity claim of a woman who is allegedly the painter's natural daughter. Various experts contest the claim, ranging from Dalí's sexual eccentrism (including a public boast about his "impotency") to the action being against the state (Dalí bequeathed his estate to Spain). If proven, his daughter could assume part of Dalí's estate. (BBC News)

A Free Syrian Army commander warns this decision risks triggering the collapse of the moderate opposition. (Reuters)
