PARIS - How much weight does a bearded mullah carry in a freewheeling, liberal society such as Norway's? The country's well-known Muslim comic, Shabana Rehman, decided to find out Tuesday when she lifted the founder of Iraq's Ansar al-Islam terrorist group off the ground before a startled audience. "If a small woman like me can lift him up, he can't be dangerous," Rehman said yesterday by telephone from northern Norway. The cleric, known as Mullah Krekar, did not find the stunt funny.

OSLO, Norway - The founder of the militant Islamic group Ansar al-Islam lost his temper in public for a second time this week, angrily wrenching a camera from a journalist yesterday. Mullah Krekar, the former leader of the group based in northern Iraq, was on his way into a police station to file an assault complaint against a female comedian who on Tuesday lifted him into the air and mocked him in front of cameras. Instead, he could be the one facing assault charges. Krekar, a refugee in Norway since 1991, erupted into a rage when a journalist took his picture outside the station.

KABUL, Afghanistan - One day after he narrowly survived an assassination attempt, Afghan President Hamid Karzai told reporters yesterday at his presidential palace that it was an isolated act and not a long-term threat to the government. Karzai, fired upon Thursday while visiting the southern city of Kandahar for his brother's wedding, said lax security and not a complex plot to bring down his government was the real threat to Afghanistan. The assassination attempt occurred a few hours after a large bomb exploded near a market in Kabul, killing more than a dozen people and injuring about 150 others.

Kim Rehman says it is costing her "a small fortune" to buy two sets of textbooks for her daughter, Amber, a 10th-grader at Garrison Forest School. But it's less expensive to buy duplicates than to take her daughter to a doctor or physical therapist frequently because of muscle spasms. The Rehmans, who live in Owings Mills, blame the weight of Amber's backpack - nearly 30 pounds of books and belongings - for the back pain that she has experienced since sixth grade. "It was too much weight for her to carry around," Rehman said.

One of the latest tech startups to get a footing in Baltimore is Foodem , a website started by a University of Maryland College Park grad a few years ago that aims to build a transparent marketplace for commercial food buyers and distributors. Kash Rehman, the founder of Foodem, has been on both sides of the equation in the food industry: he's worked for a small food distributor in Maryland and he's also run his own restaurant in College Park. Here's what Rehman, 35, learned along the way. As a restaurant buyer, he needed to spend an hour by phone comparing wholesale prices for food (think chicken tenders)
