LONDON - AP
Millions of people, who use credit cards and computers, are at the mercy of a huge ‘hidden iceberg’ of crime on the Internet.
The Web as we know it - every Google result, all the billions of sites we visit - is just a tiny fraction jutting above the waves. The vast majority of it is invisible to web browsers and the general public.

BOTSWANA’S Court of Appeal has ruled that the San inhabitants of the Central Kalahari Game Reserve (CKGR) have the right to recommission a borehole at Mothomelo, in the east of the Reserve at their own expense.
A full bench of five judges of appeal also ruled that the applicants have the right to sink one or further boreholes at other suitable sites inside the Reserve. The order was handed down on Thursday, 27 January 2011, after the Court of Appeal set aside a July 2010 High Court ruling which turned down an application to recommission the borehole at Mothomelo.
