Playboy Playmate faces jail time for body-shaming Snapchat photo

A Playboy Playmate accused of body-shaming a woman could now face criminal charges. Dani Mathers triggered outrage back in July after posting a photo on Snapchat of a woman changing in a gym locker room. The images, taken in a Los Angeles gym, were captioned: "If I can't unsee this then you can't either." The woman has now been identified and is willing to press charges. Mathers faces up to six months in jail if found guilty of dissemination of private images. – CBS News

North Korea claims success in fifth nuclear test

North Korea has given UN resolutions the middle finger once again as it says it has successfully carried out its fifth nuclear test. A 5.3 magnitude tremor was detected near its nuclear site. South Korea believes it is the North's biggest-ever test, raising fears the country has made significant nuclear advances. South Korean President Park Geun-hye called it an act of "self-destruction" showing the "maniacal recklessness" of leader Kim Jong-un. The US warned of "serious consequences." – The Guardian

Australian boy wins "best dressed" prize for Hitler costume

An Australian school has apologized after a boy who attended an event in costume as Adolf Hitler was named as one of the "best dressed" students. The school, St Philip's College, a private school in the outback town of Alice Springs, apologized to the Jewish exchange students who were present. The principal confirmed the student asked "a respected staff member" for permission to dress up as the Nazi dictator and that she had said yes. – BBC News

Mark Zuckerberg accused of abusing power after Facebook deletes "napalm girl" post

Norwegian newspaper Aftenposten has published a front-page open letter to Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, criticizing the company’s decision to censor a historic photograph of the Vietnam war. Espen Egil Hansen, the editor-in-chief, called on Zuckerberg to recognize and live up to his role as “the world’s most powerful editor,” and said, “I am upset, disappointed – well, in fact even afraid – of what you are about to do to a mainstay of our democratic society.”

The controversy stems from Facebook’s decision to delete a post by Norwegian writer Tom Egeland that featured The Terror of War, a Pulitzer prize-winning photograph by Nick Ut that showed children running away from a napalm attack. – TIME

Mel B confirms partial Spice Girls reunion

Mel B has confirmed the Spice Girls will be reuniting for a run of anniversary concerts – without Victoria Beckham and Mel C. Speaking on The Late Late Show With James Cordon, she joked: "The other two bitches didn't want to do it." She then explained the real reason is that Victoria is busy with her fashion empire and Mel C is recording new music of her own. "We're girl power. We support each other," she added. – Vulture

Hillary Clinton says "unpatriotic" Donald Trump's praise of Putin is "scary"

Hillary Clinton has slammed Donald Trump’s praise of Vladimir Putin as “unpatriotic” and “scary” and suggested the Republican nominee’s warm relationship with the Russian president could be a threat to national security. “Bizarrely, once again he praised Russia’s strongman Vladimir Putin – even taking the astonishing step of suggesting that he prefers the Russian president to our American president,” Clinton said. Trump has insisted his praise for Putin is deserved because the Russian president has an “82% approval rating”. – The Guardian
