Egypt 'has key role' in fight against Islamic State - Kerry

Egypt has a key role to play in countering Islamic State militants in Iraq and Syria, US Secretary of State John Kerry said on a visit to Cairo.

He said Egypt could "publicly renounce" IS ideology, reaffirming US support for Egypt's battle against Sinai militants.

Foreign fighters crossing Sinai en route for Syria are advising local militants there, US officials say.

Mr Kerry is on the last leg of his Middle East tour as he tries to form a broad coalition to tackle IS militants.

He has already enlisted the support of 10 Arab states so far but he has ruled out Iran joining the US-led coalition.

IS controls large parts of both countries and its fighters have become notorious for their brutality, but in recent weeks they have been targeted by US air strikes.

Memory specialist SanDisk has created an SD card with 512 gigabytes (512GB) of storage space - the highest capacity ever released.

The card, which is the size of a postage stamp, will go on sale for $800 (£490).

The launch comes a decade after the firm released a 512-megabyte (MB) SD card with one-thousandth of the space.

Experts believe SD cards could eventually hold up to 2 terabytes (TB) of data, about 2,000GB.

The new card is aimed at film-makers shooting in the high-quality 4K format.

The 4K format - which is four times the resolution of HD - requires large file storage. Depending on compression, a single minute of 4K shooting will typically take around 5GB of storage space.

The first ever football pitch to use energy from players' feet to power up the flood lights has opened in Brazil.

The inaugural game using the new technology took place in a slum in Rio de Janeiro with a team of youth players.

Brazilian football legend, Pele, opened the game and was moved to tears at the event on Wednesday night.

He said he hoped "the new field would help spark local kids' interest not only in soccer but in science."

The specially developed tiles, laid under the turf, work by harnessing the kinetic energy of players' movements - also using solar panels installed around the field.
