Far from looking frail, the silver-haired actor, model and artist wore a crisp white shirt and black jeans, his back straight and his eyes glittering with humour. Determined to avoid mental and physical stagnation, Mr Wang has explored new skills and ideas while devoting ample time to daily exercise.

By Tim Stickings For Mailonline. Young Iraqi girls are being sold for sex in temporary 'marriages' that can last as little as an hour, a BBC documentary has revealed. Shia clerics were filmed offering 'pleasure marriages' in which men, usually banned from having sex outside marriage, can pay a dowry for an interim wife. One cleric claimed it would be 'no problem at all' to marry girls as young as nine under Islamic law.
This disturbing footage shows an innocent year-old girl getting married to a year-old man in Iran. The case has provoked widespread condemnation as the girl appears to be smiling, clearly unaware of what is really happening. The authorities have now moved to annul the marriage and press charges against the adults involved. But it has highlighted the plight of hundreds of thousands of girls who are forced into marriage in Iran and many other parts of the world.
