NEW YORK (Reuters) - Nestle says it is withdrawing Farinha Lactea cereal in the U.S. because it may contain traces of a pesticide not approved for wheat in the U.S. The Swiss foods company said the traces of pesticide are within required levels in Brazil, where the cereal is manufactured, but the pesticide is not used in the U.S. and so there are no standards for its presence in cereal.
The cereal, mostly sold in Portuguese language communities in the U.S., should not be consumed and should be returned for a full refund, Nestle said. The company said it has not received any illness reports or consumer complaints and no other products are affected. A spokeswoman for Nestle did not immediately return a call.

62 wounded in bomb blasts in Thailand http://edition.cnn.com/2008/WORLD/asiapcf/11/04/thailand.unrest/index.html?eref=edition_world
BANGKOK, Thailand (CNN) -- Two near-simultaneous explosions in insurgency-hit southern Thailand wounded 62 people Tuesday, police said. A car bomb blast ripped through a fruit market in the Sukhirin district of Narathiwat, a predominantly Muslim province along the Thailand-Malaysia border. Two minutes later, another explosion took place near a tea shop, police said. The blasts occurred a week after Thailand's new prime minister, Somchai Wongsawat, visited the violence-plagued region.

Suicide bomb at Pakistani post kills one, 9 hurtISLAMABAD (Reuters) -
A suicide bomber killed a Pakistani soldier and wounded nine on Tuesday, highlighting the growing militant threat a day after the top U.S. commander in the region held security talks with Pakistani leaders. The attack on a paramilitary post in the northwestern town of Doaba was the latest in an intensifying campaign by Islamist militants that has raised fears for Pakistan, a nuclear-armed U.S. ally also facing an economic crisis. Doaba police official Omar Faraz Khattack said initially soldiers were wounded: "One of them died on the way to hospital and one is seriously wounded."
Another police officer said a human head, apparently that of the suicide bomber, had been found at the scene
