PIERS MORGAN: Hillary Clinton is now red-hot favourite to become the first female President of the United States. Of course, it's not over yet. The polls might be as hopelessly wrong as they were about Trump's chances of winning the Republican nomination. I've made it clear that whilst Trump's a friend of mine, I wouldn't vote for, or endorse him even if I could, which I can't. I simply don't agree with him about too many issues from guns and Muslim bans to climate change. However, I wouldn't vote for, or endorse Hillary either.

Roman emperor Titus' 'Third Wall' siege in A.D. 70 found in Jerusalem

Archaeologists have discovered the remains of an ancient tower thought to have once stood atop Jerusalem's fabled 'Third Wall,' breached during the Roman emperor Titus' siege of the city 2,000 years ago. The grisly battle ultimately led to the conquest of Jerusalem and the destruction of the Second Temple, and researchers have long debated the details of the city's boundaries on the eve of the onslaught in 70 AD. Not far from the tower, the team also found scores of projectile stones that were catapulted at guards who stood atop the tower, providing new evidence of the ancient battle that could be proof of the wall's existence at the site.
