Two French international footballers, Franck Ribery and Karim Benzema, have been put under formal criminal investigation over accusations that they’d paid for sex with an underaged woman. Their accuser said she was less than 18 at the time of the alleged incidents. Under French law, paid sex with somebody under 18 is regarded as intercourse with a minor. Both players have denied any wrongdoing.

Two prisoners have escaped from a jail in Argentina, which was using a dummy to man one of its guard towers. Prison staff said a lack of resources meant that only two out of their 15 guard towers were occupied at any given time. They had a football with a prison officer's cap in assert to create the illusion of an extra guard. The escaped convicts are still on the run.
