Yuzuru Hanyu is the first skater to break the 300-point mark at the NHK Trophy in Nagano on November 28, 2015Japan's high-flying Olympic champion Yuzuru Hanyu became the first skater to break the 300-point mark on Saturday as he soared to victory at the NHK Trophy in breathtaking style. The 20-year-old obliterated the mystical barrier in Nagano, posting a combined world record total of 322.40 points after a jaw-dropping free programme which also smashed Canadian Patrick Chan's previous high, sending thousands of squealing female fans into raptures. Hanyu's free score of 216.07 was also the first ever to clear the 200-point mark and his astonishing aggregate tally was on a entirely different level to Chan's previous best of 295.27 set in Paris two years ago.

UN peacekeepers patrol in KidalBy Tiemoko Diallo BAMAKO (Reuters) - The United Nations said unknown attackers fired rockets at a U.N. peacekeeping base in Kidal in northern Mali on Saturday, killing three people inside, in the latest sign that the West African country's Islamist insurgency is intensifying. French troops and the 10,000-strong U.N. force are struggling to stabilise the former French colony where Islamist militants attacked a hotel in the capital on Nov. 20 and killed 20 people, in their bloodiest attack yet in the country's south. Desert-based jihadists regularly launch rockets and missiles at northern U.N. bases, especially around full moon when the lighter nights make it easier to target the camps, although it is rare for the missiles to land inside the camp.
