UEFA chief Michel Platini has appealed against a 90-day suspension imposed on him by world governing body FIFA as part of an ongoing corruption investigation, a close associate said on Saturday. Lawyers for Platini, who is also a vice-president of FIFA, lodged the appeal at the organisation's Zurich headquarters, the associate said. Platini's action comes a day after FIFA chief Sepp Blatter also lanched an appeal against a similar 90-day ban from all football-related activities imposed on him.
North Korea's leader Kim Jong-Un said Saturday his country could fight any war provoked by the United States, as he presided over a vast military parade to mark the 70th anniversary of the ruling Workers' Party. Thousands of troops marched through the capital followed by columns of tanks, armoured vehicles and ballistic missiles, in what was tipped to be one of the largest ceremonial displays of military strength in North Korea's history. Dressed in his customary dark Mao suit, Kim struck a more belligerent note than in previous public addresses, telling the assembled masses in Kim Il-Sung square that North Korea could fight any war begun by the US.
