"Solar Impulse 2", piloted by Swiss adventurer Bertrand Piccard, flies over the Golden Gate bridge in San Francisco, CaliforniaSolar Impulse 2, an experimental aircraft flying around the world to draw attention to clean energy technologies, is to take flight again on Monday, organizers said. Pilot Andre Borschberg will take off at 12:00 GMT (5:00AM PT) taking advantage of a "clear weather window" for him to fly from the Mojave Desert to Phoenix Goodyear Airport in Arizona -- an effort that should take about 16 hours, they said. The plane has been in California for a week since crossing the Pacific to land in Mountain View.

A newspaper bears the photograph of Pakistani surgeon Shakeel Afridi, recruited by the CIA to help find Osama bin Laden, at a newsstand in Karachi on May 24, 2012Five years after his fake vaccination programme helped the CIA track and kill Osama bin Laden, Pakistani doctor Shakeel Afridi languishes in jail, abandoned by the US, say supporters, in its bid to smooth troubled relations with Islamabad. Details of how he was sought out by the Central Intelligence Agency are unclear -- Pakistani reports suggest officials at Save the Children acted as go-betweens, though the charity denies involvement. What is known is that Afridi's job was to run a fake Hepatitis C vaccination program with the aim of obtaining genetic samples from Abbottabad, a garrison city and home to the Pakistan Military Academy, the country's answer to Westpoint.

An engineer makes an arm rail for residential buildings inside a metal processing factory at an industrial zone in downtown TokyoJapanese manufacturing activity shrank in April at the fastest pace in more than three years as deadly earthquakes disrupted production, while output in China and the rest of Asia remained lukewarm at best. "The backdrop remains one of sub-trend growth, inflation that is below target, difficulty in increasing revenue as margins are sacrificed to win modest volume gains, slow wage growth cramping spending and central banks that have used up much of their policy ammunition," was the sober assessment of Alan Oster, chief economist at National Australia Bank.
