Venezuela moves to empty Tower of David skyscraper slumJames Rodriguez signs 6-year deal with Real Madrid

Picture taken at the Tower of David, an abandoned skyscraper in Caracas originally intended to be an office building that became a 'vertical slum', during its evicition on July 22, 2014Venezuelan authorities on Tuesday began moving residents out of the Tower of David, a Caracas skyscraper so notorious as a haven for squatters and gangs it was depicted in the US TV series "Homeland." More than 100 families were ushered out of the unfinished 45-story building, the start of an operation by military authorities to clear a longtime symbol of festering poverty and lawlessness in the heart of the Venezuelan capital. Its construction halted in 1993 after a financial crisis and the death of its owner, investor David Brillembourg, the building was taken over in 2007 by gangs and homeless people with the blessings of the government of President Hugo Chavez. Stories about the crime-ridden haven inspired "Homeland" writers to make the Tower of David a place of refuge for anti-hero Nicholas Brody, who -- running from US authorities in the last season of the hit show -- turns up there wounded and in the care of a shadowy network of Venezuelan drug traffickers.


MADRID (AP) — After scoring the most goals of any player at the World Cup, Colombia forward James Rodriguez signed a six-year deal with Real Madrid on Tuesday.
