Trump quotes approvingly apocryphal tale of US general who 'summarily executed Muslim terrorists with pigs' blood-soaked bullets' as he pledges support for Barcelona
The president said his administration condemns Thursday's terrorist attack in Barcelona, Spain – but then told a widely discredited military tall tale to reinvigorate his tough-on-terror image. 'Study what General Pershing of the United States did to terrorists when caught. There was no more Radical Islamic Terror for 35 years!' the president tweeted. Trump had already issued a more prosaic tweet 45 minutes earlier, writing: 'The United States condemns the terror attack in Barcelona, Spain, and will do whatever is necessary to help. Be tough & strong, we love you!' The claim earned him the rating 'pants on fire' by fact-checking organization Politifact, and was called a 'lie' by CNN anchor Jake Tapper.

Suffering of the seal caught in a tide of litter: Animal is left with inch wide wound after being caught in garrotte-like nylon net off the Cornish coast
A young grey seal was left with serious injuries after getting tangled in a net on a remote West Cornish cove in Britain that was littered with plastic bottles. Environmental group Cornish Wildlife saved the injured mammal, pictured left, by calming it before cutting away the nylon netting, pictured bottom right. They managed to clean the deep wound around its neck, freeing it back into the sea. The group said the incident highlighted the hazard that lost and discarded netting poses to wildlife.

Family return home from two-week Menorca holiday to find their car missing from airport 'meet and greet' parking and their home completely ransacked
A family's two-week holiday to Spain turned into a nightmare after they returned to discover their Audi had gone missing and their home ransacked by burglars. The Firth family (left) arrived back at Manchester Airport (bottom right) from Menorca to be told their car could not be found - three days after a burglary at their home. Georgina Firth had dropped off the Audi A4 (top right) with Car Park Manchester, which offers a 'meet and greet' service and keeps the car at a nearby compound at a cost of £82. After touching down in the UK, however, the 41-year-old was told by staff that the car could not be found and a taxi was booked instead. To make matters worse, Mrs Firth's 17-year-old son had rang her three days before to tell her there had been a break-in at the family home in Penrhyn Bay, North Wales. Police believe the thieves who took the car used house keys left inside the vehicle to break into the house, before they were scared off by Mrs Firth's son.

Girls snap up 60,000 more university places than boys as scramble for 27,000 courses through clearing continues - but Gove's 'tougher' A-Levels see gender gap close
Almost 45,000 last-minute degree course places are still available at UK universities as institutions battle each other to attract new students. This year there has been a drop in applications to start degree courses at UK universities this autumn, fuelled by factors including a fall in the 18 and 19-year-old population, changes to funding for nursing degrees and the possible impact of Brexit. The fall, coupled with reforms which mean universities are no longer restricted by a cap on student numbers, means many institutions which still want to fill places are entering clearing in a bid to attract and recruit qualified candidates.

Living the high life: The secretive Korowai tribe who live above the forest in treehouses… and didn't know other people existed until the 1970s
Meet the mysterious Korowai tribe of south eastern Papua, Indonesian New Guinea. Until the 1970s, it is believed they were unaware of the existence of any other people on earth. Living as remotely as they do - perched up in the canopy of the least explored jungles in the world - it's quite plausible. They live a basic hunter-gatherer lifestyle and do not wear clothes.
