Yes, you read that headline correctly. Kofi Kingston, a WWE Superstar who was hard-pressed to find a win on television in 2013, defeated a man in Antonio Cesaro who, weeks earlier, was taking on several challengers, showing impressive feats of strength. Then, Cesaro seemed to fall off the face of the earth around WrestleMania time. He didn't appear at WrestleMania. He didn't appear on Raw the next night. Then, he starts yodeling and loses the U.S. title. Is Antonio Cesaro in the dog house?

NAIROBI, Kenya -- The death toll in the aftermath of Kenya's flawed elections surpassed 1,000 people yesterday, as negotiations entered a critical stage in the effort to end the country's violent political situation. According to the Red Cross, which tabulated the casualties, most of the killings have been in the turbulent Rift Valley, where gangs from opposing ethnic groups have fought fiercely in the past few days. "It's a very volatile situation out there," said Anthony Mwangi, a spokesman for the Kenya Red Cross.

UNITED NATIONS - U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan named a high-level advisory panel of international financial experts yesterday and gave them five months to come up with concrete ideas to help poor countries that are falling further behind a global economic boom. The panel will be led by Ernesto Zedillo, the former president of Mexico, an economist. Among its members are Robert Rubin, the former U.S. treasury secretary and now chairman of Citigroup's executive committee, and Jacques Delors, a former president of the European Commission and former finance minister of France.

LONDON - British intelligence agents were involved in intercepting conversations of U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan in the weeks before the Iraq war, according to a former Cabinet member in Prime Minister Tony Blair's administration who said she read the transcripts. The highly unusual revelation by Clare Short, former international development secretary, made public what has long been an unspoken assumption among foreign diplomats in the United States: Their phone calls and office conversations are routinely intercepted by the National Security Agency and its British equivalent, the Government Communications Headquarters, which work closely together.

NEW YORK -- Kofi Apea Orleans-Lindsay, the man arrested earlier this week in Brooklyn in the killing of a Maryland state trooper, was ordered yesterday to return to Washington to face a newly filed federal murder charge - a charge that carries the possibility of a death sentence. Orleans-Lindsay, the target of a two-week manhunt that covered a large swath of the mid-Atlantic region before his arrest, sat silent but attentive as he was arraigned yesterday on the new charge. He was presented with the federal charge at a hearing to determine whether authorities arrested the right man early Monday on a warrant issued by a Washington judge in the killing of Cpl. Edward M. Toatley on Oct. 30. "There is probable cause to believe we have one and the same person," said U.S District Magistrate Judge A. Simon Chrein, who cleared the way for Orleans-Lindsay to be taken to Washington.

Everyone in Washington agreed that something had to be done about the United Nations.The United States owed $1.3 billion in unpaid U.N. dues, and the world organization needed reforming. Not everybody agreed on what should be done, so they did what politicians like to do - they started negotiating. Within a few months, they triumphantly proclaimed that they had reached a compromise all sides could live with. The United States, they declared, would pay $819 million, about 60 percent of the amount owed, if and when the United Nations met a series of U.S.-imposed requirements, most having to do with eliminating programs, cutting staff and slashing budgets.

Four-year-old Kofi Whitehead had scarcely entered the dim museum room when something caused his eyes to light up with excitement. "Look!" he yelled to his parents while pointing to a painting on a wall. "I see a ship!" Images of the Henrietta Marie slave ship exhibition made the Reginald F. Lewis Museum of Maryland African American History and Culture, which opened in June, come alive for the youngster from Baltimore. Kofi's mother, Kaye, an advanced-placement social studies teacher at West Baltimore Middle School, wasn't about to let her son's curiosity go to waste.

UNITED NATIONS -- Secretary-General Kofi Annan says that he will keep working right up until midnight today, when his 10-year tenure as the world's top diplomat officially ends. But he has begun reflecting on his achievements, frustrations and failures as a leader who embodies the world's ideals, and as a man who often could not escape his limitations to make them a reality. Although sometimes it is debated whether Annan, 68, was more "secretary" or "general," he was more of an idealist than either.

JERUSALEM -- U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan arrived yesterday for talks with Israeli leaders after calling again for an end to Israel's blockade of Lebanon and the release of two captured Israeli soldiers. Annan's visit is part of an 11-day tour through the region aimed at solidifying the cease-fire that ended the monthlong conflict between Israeli forces and Hezbollah fighters in Lebanon. The United Nations chief, who arrived after touring war-battered southern Lebanon, met separately with Israeli Defense Minister Amir Peretz and the families of two Israeli soldiers whose abduction by Hezbollah on July 12 triggered the fighting.

KOFI ANNAN, seventh secretary-general of the United Nations, needs to be replaced in December when his five-year term is up. On Thursday, he offered his services for a second term. He should get it. Since the United States helped put him in office after vetoing a second term for his predecessor, Boutros Boutros-Ghali of Egypt, Mr. Annan has presided over long-demanded administrative reforms. He reached a deal on U.S. dues with Ambassador Richard Holbrooke and Sen. Jesse Helms. He managed peacekeeping, brokered disputes and shined the spotlight on neglected crises of anarchy and health.

UNITED NATIONS -- In an effort to end the United Nations' financial troubles by persuading Congress to pay the United States' overdue dues, Secretary-General Kofi Annan is working on a plan to eliminate some $200 million a year of administrative spending and shift the money to aid for poor countries.The new secretary-general hopes to secure these savings in the administrative budget by eliminating 500 jobs from a work force that has already shrunk from 12,000 to 9,000 since 1985.The moves would slash administrative spending nearly in half and reduce administrative costs from 38 percent of the United Nations' $1.3 billion budget to 20 percent.
