Police in India are holding a ....... pigeon under armed guard after it was caught on an alleged spying mission for  Pakistan - and straight away I'm thinking James Bond.
A local found the bird which had a ring on it's leg and a Pakastani telephone number and address on it's body in red ink.
Taken to a nearby police station, officer Ramdas Singh Chahal said he believed the pigeon landed with a message, although no note was found. He said no one was allowed to visit the pigeon, which may have been on a "special mission of spying" adding that it was being kept in an air-conditioned room.

E-mailed this by a friend, I was convinced it was some kind of a joke but no, THERE IT WAS for all to see.

Oh, no one covers the news as well as Petty Witter. Really, if you could just be on television, I would become your biggest fan. A pigeon, really? We better tell Wikileaks....love to you, molly

Meanwhile the bird's feeling pretty darn satisfied with itself, thinking that all those suspicions it had held ever since it was a little baby bird that it would someday be destined for greatness were justified.
