Sigurdsson strike stuns Liverpool at Anfield
Gylfi Sigurdsson's decisive goal boosted Swansea's hopes of Premier League survival as they inflicted Liverpool's first home defeat for almost a year with a 3-2 triumph at Anfield on Saturday. Iceland international Sigurdsson, who has repeatedly been linked with a move away from the Welsh club, struck with 16 minutes left after Paul Clement's side had let a two-goal lead slip against title-chasing Liverpool. Fernando Llorente had scored twice in the first seven minutes of the second half for Swansea, but Liverpool's Roberto Firmino responded with a double of his own.

El Chapo, if convicted, would likely do time in 'Supermax? prison
By Keith Coffman DENVER (Reuters) - If Mexican drug lord Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman, known as much for jail breaks as narcotics trafficking, ends up convicted in U.S. court, there is little doubt where he will spend the rest of his life - a super-secure Colorado prison housing America's most dangerous inmates. Guzman, 59, pleaded not guilty in U.S. District Court in Brooklyn on Friday to charges he ran perhaps the world's largest drug smuggling operation during a decades-long criminal career that included the murder of rivals, money laundering and weapons offenses. As a condition of his extradition, U.S. prosecutors assured Mexican officials that they would not seek the death penalty.
Turkey vote paves way for referendum on Erdogan powers
