paragliding hug fatwa  
Some non-Irish politics for a change:

The Pakistani tourist minister did a paraglide in France to raise money for victims of the Kashmir earthquake. After it, she hugged her instructor and was photographed doing so. Religious extremists didn't like that "obscenity" and issued a fatwa. She's now resigned.
