Let us know what you think of the former England captain's decision to donate his salary to a charity David Beckham has joined French football team Paris St-Germain , and he has announced that he will be donating his salary to charity.

Australian military called in to battle floods as clean-up begins 30.1.2013 The Guardian -- World Latest
Food and power shortages hit east coast as torrential rains damage thousands of homes and businesses on east coast Military personnel have been called in to help clean up Australia's flood-ravaged east coast after torrential rains and swollen rivers damaged thousands of homes and businesses and left some communities short of power, food and water. The death toll from the crisis rose to five when police discovered a man's body in a car submerged in a creek. Another man who disappeared while travelling through the same area this week was still missing. Floodwaters were receding in most places, bringing relief to a region that was battered by worse floods just two years ago.
