Prehistoric footprints of woman carrying toddler while dodging sabre-toothed cats unearthedFootprints left by a prehistoric mother and her toddler dodging sabre-toothed cats and wolves have been unearthed in the US. The trackway, the longest set of fossil human prints ever found, stretches for almost a mile - and dates back 13,000 years. It tells the remarkable story of the pair's journey as they made their way across treacherous mudflats with hungry giant predators on their tail. An analysis found the woman was moving at a rapid pace - intermittently carrying and putting down a two-year-old child. British and US scientists say the toddler was "tired and probably cranky" and describe the scene as "the stuff of every parent's nightmare."

South African white farmers, rival Black protesters face off over farm murder caseWhite South African farmers and rival Black protesters hurled abuse and threats at each other on Friday ahead of a court hearing in a murder case that has exposed still simmering racial tensions 26 years after the end of apartheid. The killing of Brendan Horner, a white man whose body was found tied to a pole at his farm in Free State province, sparked riots at the start of this month, and prompted President Cyril Ramaphosa to make a statement urging South Africans to "resist attempts... to mobilise communities along racial lines". The farmers, who accuse the government of failing to protect them from violent crime, arrived in pick-up trucks ahead of the court hearing in the central town of Senekal for Horner's two suspected killers.
