Labour Party leadership candidates Jeremy Corbyn and Andy Burnham embrace as Yvette Cooper walks off stage after a hustings event in StevenageBy Kylie MacLellan and William James LONDON (Reuters) - Reeling from their worst defeat in decades, senior figures in Britain's opposition Labour Party want to tack to the centre to win back voters, but party activists are rallying behind a leftist stalwart who says it is time to get radical. Labour is so divided over the choice of a leader to replace failed prime ministerial candidate Ed Miliband that some are questioning whether the party that created Britain's welfare state and health service can even hold together.

American Airlines said on Tuesday it would join Delta Airlines and United Airlines in banning the transport of animals known in Africa as the "big five", coined by hunters because they are the hardest to kill on foot. There has been an international outcry against trophy hunting among animal lovers since it emerged that American dentist Walter Palmer killed Cecil, a rare black-maned lion that was a familiar sight at Zimbabwe's Hwange National Park.
