Detroit automakers face speed bumps as sales growth slows
By Paul Lienert and Joseph White DETROIT (Reuters) - Detroit's automakers, on track for their best sales year since 2006, may want to brace themselves for rockier times ahead.

Bodies from Thai mass grave show no initial signs of violent death: police
Five bodies were retrieved on Friday from the camp, which is a few hundred meters from Thailand's border with Malaysia, bringing the total to 26. "From initial forensic investigation at the site there are no marks on the bones or breakages that would suggest a violent death," Police Colonel Triwit Sriprapa, deputy commander of Songkhla Provincial Police, told Reuters. "It is likely that they died from disease and malnutrition." The discovery of the camp was a sharp reminder of the extent of human trafficking in Thailand and comes as the Southeast Asian country makes efforts to improve its record in fighting the trade.

William and Kate eschew crowns for life with nappiesThe eyes of the world have again turned on Queen Elizabeth's grandson and his wife, officially known as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, with the birth of their second child, a girl. Millions of people across the world tuned in to watch their sumptuous wedding in 2011 while the birth of Prince George two years later provoked an international media frenzy outside a hospital in west London. Rather than crowns and tiaras, William and Kate will be eagerly looking forward to bath time and changing nappies. "I'm sure that they'll be again very hands on and very much wanting to be as normal a family as possible." Britain's royal family has enjoyed a surge in popularity in the last decade, mainly fueled by its young members, Kate, William and his younger brother Harry, restoring its reputation after the divorce of their parents Prince Charles and Princess Diana, and her subsequent death in a Paris car crash in 1997.
