Monsoon's Showkoth Choudhoury preparing to send his curry to the Congo.  A British curry house has sent a special order of meals 4,000 miles away to the CONGO - for a handful of United Nations troops.  See ROSS PARRY story RPYCURRY.  Chefs were set the unusual challenge of making dishes to be flown by helicopter to the Democratic Republic of Congo to feed up to 70 soldiers stationed there.  The Monsoon restaurant in South Shields, South Tyneside, was set the colossal task to drum up 10 mirch masalas, 10 achargola curries and five butternut squashtong curries for the journey.  Restaurant owner Showkoth Choudhoury, 42, started the endeavour after receiving an email from businessman Mohammed Kabir asking if he could create the dishes.  Mr Kabir - a multi-millionaire working on football projects in the Congo - had visited the restaurant last month and was so impressed that he set Showkoth the strange request.

Pictured is Keith Cerslake whose passport got lost on the way from Bransholme to Gibraltar and ended up in New York. See ROSS PARRY story RPYNEWYORK; A west Hull couple were forced to give up their lives in Spain after their passports were sent more than 3,000 miles away to strangers in New York by mistake. Keith Kerslake and his wife Louise say they now feel "sceptical" about using the Royal Mail after their passports ended up in the States, arriving there by post. They applied for their passports in May so they could carry on working but they only found out the important documents had been sent over the Atlantic last week. But by that time they had already had to leave their jobs and the country they had lived in for nine years because they were unable to work without their passports. A shocked Mr Kerslake, 53, said: "We just couldn't believe that our identifications had been sent to a stranger on the other side of the world."

A baby orangutan has been rescued after spending six months chained by the neck to a narrow plank of wood in a family's kitchen. See National story NNAPE; The 18-month-old ape, named Bonika, was found chained so tightly around the neck that she was barely able to move from side to side, and was left stranded on the plank. But the International Animal Rescue (IAR) Orangutan Centre in Ketapang, West Borneo, heard about the orangutan and rushed to its aid 200km away. According to Bapak Hendrigus, the man who captured Bonika, he had been keeping her as a family pet since June when he claimed to have found her in the middle of a palm oil plantation. He was on his way to work at a rubber tree plantation when he said he spotted the little orangutan alone and looking thin, so he caught her and brought her home to live with his family. He says the ape fed on rice, sugar cane, biscuits, bread, mineral water and baby milk.
