'Jewish Indiana Jones' in court over lost Torahs crusade

A self-styled "Jewish Indiana Jones" who claimed he criss-crossed the globe rescuing Torahs is to face fraud charges after authorities said he duped benefactors by fabricating dramatic stories about sometimes dangerous trips. Court papers say that 50-year-old Menachem Youlus carried out the fraud from at least 2004 until last year, pocketing hundreds of thousands of dollars through the "Save a Torah" charity he co-founded in 2004 as a not-for-profit organisation.

Naughty Dog Studio’s creation is a masterpiece of game design. Never before have story and action sequences been so beautifully combined to produce an experience which can only be described as akin to participating in an interactive movie – and we’re talking Raiders of the Lost Ark here, not Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.
