OSLO (Reuters) - A Norwegian court has acquitted a man accused of raping a sleeping woman after he said he was also asleep at the time.

The 18-year old woman, who had gone to sleep dressed in trousers and a sweater on a sofa after a party with friends, awoke to find the 34-year-old man having sex with her. The man said he was woken by her screams for help.


"He said that he was asleep and the majority of the judges found that they could not rule out the possibility," defense lawyer Christian Riig told NRK public radio on Thursday.


The three-judge panel in the court in Inderoy, west Norway, acquitted him by a 2-1 margin because of doubts about whether he had been conscious.


Riig declined to speculate about how the man, who had been drinking, could have had sex in his sleep, apparently after undressing the woman. But he said an ex-partner of the man had testified by telephone that similar things had happened to her.

RIO DE JANEIRO, Brazil (Reuters) - Santa Claus brought an unusual gift for some Rio schoolchildren this holiday season -- a bag of marijuana.

Police in the Brazilian city said two teenagers were spotted selling Santa dolls at the entrance of a municipal school next to a slum not far from the city center.


The dolls opened up like Easter eggs, each containing sweets and a small plastic bag of marijuana.


The suspects abandoned 24 dolls and ran away into the slum when police came to arrest them.


Rio's teeming slums are notorious for the drugs trade. Drug gangs often use young children as foot soldiers and pushers.
