Apocalypse not now or then

KIEV - A doomsday cult's second call to mark the Apocalypse fell largely on deaf ears yesterday when only a handful of people turned out to witness the promised end of the world, Reuter reports. The White Brotherhood's Apocalypse was originally set for 24 November then rescheduled for 14 November because the cult miscalculated the number of 'Biblical days' since its founding. Its latest pamphlet said it was on again for yesterday. Riot police, the officers reading or dozing, stood by outside Kiev's Cathedral of St Sofia, deemed the 'closest point to the cosmos' by the cult.
