World's most famous goat dies

The best-known goat in Sudan has died months after being "married" to a man in the South Sudan capital, Juba, the BBC has learned.
Local elders ordered a man found having sex with the goat, called Rose, to pay a dowry and "marry" her last February.
"The idea was to publicly embarrass the man," says Tom Rhodes, editor of the Juba Post, which first ran the story.
The BBC's story of the "wedding" caught the public imagination and became one of the best read internet stories.
Rose had a male kid - "not a human one" - Mr Rhodes said, hastily.
