Archaeologists working in the dense jungle of Honduras have found dozens of artefacts at a site where they believe twin cities from an ancient civilization once thrived, the head of the country's anthropology institute said on Wednesday. The artefacts unearthed at the site, in the eastern Mosquitia region of Honduras, point to a civilization with advanced artistic and engineering skills and are distinct from ancient Mayan cites also known to the region, said Virgilio Paredes, head of the national anthropology and history institute. Paredes said 52 objects, including mostly-buried stone sculptures resembling men and jaguars as well as the remains of a pyramid and other structures, have been identified by a team of specialists from the United States and Honduras. He said it is not clear if the discovery is related to the mythical White City first mentioned by Spanish colonizers in the 16th century or the lost "City of the Monkey God" popularized by American explorer Theodore Morde who claimed he made the discovery in the same region of Honduras in 1939.

World Press Photo withdrew one of its leading global awards for photojournalism on Wednesday after a controversy over standards that focused on allegations about the ethics of an Italian prize winner. The Amsterdam-based organisation said in a statement that Giovanni Troilo had been disqualified because one of the images in his winning pictorial essay on post-industrial blight in the Belgian city of Charleroi had been shot 50 km (30 miles) away in Brussels. Disquiet among photo journalists that some images had been staged for the camera gathered pace after Charleroi's mayor complained that Troilo's series "The Dark Heart of Europe", awarded first prize last month in the Contemporary Issues - Stories category, presented a distorted view of his city. "The story was not in compliance with the entry rules and therefore the award must be revoked," the 60-year-old World Press Photo said in a statement on its Facebook site.

(Reuters) - U.S. transportation safety investigators said on Wednesday they are reviewing a request to reopen a probe into the 1959 airplane crash that killed musicians Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens, J.P. Richardson, better known as "The Big Bopper," and their pilot. The original investigation 56 years ago conducted by the Civil Aeronautics Board blamed the crash on the pilot's decision to embark on an instrument-guided flight he was not certified for and, secondarily, on poor weather briefing. The NTSB received a request recently from pilot L.J. Coon to reconsider the decision, the Mason City Globe Gazette reported. "We are reviewing the petition to reconsider the Buddy Holly crash, based on criteria in our regs," the National Transportation Safety Board said.

By Will Dunham WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A 2.8-million-year-old jawbone fossil with five intact teeth unearthed in an Ethiopian desert is pushing back the dawn of humankind by about half a million years. Scientists said on Wednesday the fossil represents the oldest known representative of the human genus Homo and appears to be a previously unknown species from the human lineage's earliest phases. Our species, Homo sapiens, appeared only 200,000 years ago, following a procession of others in the same genus. Until now, the oldest known remains from the human genus were about 2.3 to 2.4 million years old and from the species Homo habilis.

By Shilpa Jamkhandikar MUMBAI (Reuters) - Government censors have said they will not allow the big-screen adaptation of erotic novel "Fifty Shades of Grey" to be shown in cinemas, a decision most had anticipated in the largely conservative country. The chief executive of the Central Board of Film Certification, Shravan Kumar, declined to say why the panel refused to approve the film adaptation, but said Universal Pictures, the Comcast Corp unit that released the film, could appeal the decision. A Universal Pictures source familiar with the review process said the board had objected to some of the film's dialogue, even after the studio made voluntary edits to the film to tone down its sex scenes and removed all nudity. The film's distributor, Comcast Corp is also not pursuing a theatrical release in China, the world's second-largest film market, where the censors tend to ban sexually explicit films.
