Human rights groups have questioned the wisdom of Shakespeare's Globe Theatre in London taking a production of Hamlet to North Korea, but stopped short of calling for the plan to be scrapped. But Phil Robertson, the deputy director of Human Rights Watch's Asia division, said exclusion would be the order of the day if the performance went ahead in Pyongyang. "It would have to be in Pyongyang, which is a showcase city whose residents are selected to live there because they have shown their loyalty," Robertson said. Although North Korea is the subject of numerous UN and other international sanctions, there is no cultural boycott or other provision that a performance like that planned by the Globe would violate.
Munich (Germany) (AFP) - Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is hoping for deja vu when the Gunners face Bayern Munich away in Tuesday's Champions League last 16, second-leg clash. Wenger's side go to Munich's Allianz Arena needing to overturn a 2-0 deficit from the first leg at the Emirates Stadium three weeks ago. Arsenal bowed out of Europe to the same opponents at the same stage last season, but not before enjoying a shock 2-0 win in Munich's after losing 3-1 at home to Bayern. The Bavarian giants only went through on away goals before going on to win the Wembley final and Wenger said it's all about belief again for his side in Bavaria.
