Mel Gibson unhurt in crash

LOS ANGELES -- Mel Gibson was uninjured after crashing his sports car into a Malibu hillside, the California Highway Patrol said.

Gibson's 2008 Maserati careened off southbound Malibu Canyon Road on Sunday evening, the agency said.

Gibson's spokesman Alan Nierob said in an e-mail the actor-director was doing fine.

The 54-year-old Academy Award winner was alone in the car. Authorities do not suspect alcohol was involved.

Gibson cooperated with the agency and was picked up from the scene by a friend. The CHP did not release any further details, and it was unclear how much damage Gibson's car sustained.

German singer tried over HIV infection charge

DARMSTADT, Germany -- A German singer facing accusations that she infected a man with the virus that causes AIDS acknowledged in court Monday that she had unprotected sex despite knowing she was HIV-positive.

Nadja Benaissa, 28, a member of German girl band No Angels, is charged with grievous bodily harm for allegedly infecting a partner with the virus in 2004 and also faces charges of attempted bodily harm for having unprotected sex with two other men.

''I am sorry from my heart,'' she said in a statement read by her lawyer to the Darmstadt administrative court. ''No way did I want my partner to be infected.''

The man who claims Benaissa infected him says they had a three-month relationship at the beginning of 2004, and that he got tested after Benaissa's aunt asked him in 2007 whether he was aware that the singer was HIV-positive.
