A newborn baby girl left abandoned on the side of the road in southern Afghanistan has been discovered by a group of Polish soldiers.
The soldiers came upon the baby, who they have named Pola, after Poland, wrapped in a towel on Wednesday while they were checking a route near their Waghez military base for safety, Defense Ministry spokesman Janusz Walczak told The Associated Press.
The group of soldiers was first suspicious when they discovered the baby, as there is a risk of hidden roadside bombs across Afghanistan.
It is still unclear who left baby Pola on the side of the road. The AP reported that there was no one found in a mile radius of where the baby was discovered.
After the troops found her, she was brought to a medical center at their base. The soldiers then bought the girl baby formula, a bottle and a bib.Read More »from Soldiers Discover Abandoned Baby on Side of Road in Afghanistan
No one was safe when Kimmel took the stage for his opening montage. Kimmel took a page out of Ricky Gervais' hosting book and insulted almost every nominee in the room. He took stabs at Cat Deeley, Jon Hamm and Steve Buscemi, which the "Boardwalk Empire" star didn't find too funny.
But Mitt Romney was the first victim of the night. When talking about what he finds fascinating about PBS' drama 'Downton Abbey,' Kimmel said, "It really gives you a sense of what it must have been like to grow up in Mitt Romney's house."

Unbeaten fighter Floyd Mayweather dampened talk of a possible mega-fight agreement with Filipino boxer Manny Pacquiao, a day after the Asian star's promoter said a deal was near. Mayweather posted a message on his Shots account that said in part "While they continue to lie about making the fight... I'm just going to continue to travel and explore the world on my private jet. Pacquiao promoter Bob Arum told the New York Post on Friday that he was optimistic a Pacquiao-Mayweather deal for a May 2 fight in Las Vegas would be completed in the next couple of days, with only a few final details to be settled between rival telecasters HBO and Showtime, the rights holders for Pacquiao and Mayweather respectively. Mayweather, who turns 38 on February 24, left England's Amir Khan hanging for months until announcing on his birthday last year that he would fight Argentina's Marcos Maidana instead.

With her name freshly engraved onto the Australian Open trophy, Serena Williams feels she can play on indefinitely and is intent on increasing her tally of 19 Grand Slams. The American great, 33, scoffed at talk of retirement after shooting down Maria Sharapova in straight sets to win her sixth title at Melbourne Park, becoming the oldest woman to ever lift the trophy. Williams has endured her share of injury scares during a long career, including a life-threatening pulmonary embolism in 2011 that sidelined her for 12 months. "I can play as long as I like now," Williams said after moving to clear second on the list of all-time Open-era Slam winners behind Steffi Graf on 22.
Arsene Wenger believes his swoop for Brazilian defender Gabriel Paulista could prove a turning point in Arsenal's battle to qualify for the Champions League. Wenger splashed out Â£11.5 million ($17 million) to sign Gabriel from Villarreal earlier this week and the 24-year-old could make his debut against Aston Villa at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday. Gabriel's arrival comes with Arsenal in the midst of a tense struggle to book their place in next season's Champions League via a top-four finish in the Premier League. The fifth placed Gunners trail fourth placed Manchester United by one point and are also scrapping with Southampton and Tottenham for the coveted berths in Europe's elite club competition.
The Super Bowl kicks off Sunday as American football seeks to put a scandal-plagued season behind it, with this year's spectacle featuring a Katy Perry concert, ultra-expensive commercials and a compelling clash between Seattle and New England. The extravaganza is expected to draw a whopping 115 million viewers -- or about one in three Americans -- and amounts to an unofficial holiday in the United States, where even those with no interest in the sport gather at countless Super Bowl parties. This year's championship comes with the National Football League battling back from a season of turmoil, accused of complacency and even conspiracy in its handling of issues ranging from domestic violence to concussion dangers. The latest controversy -- accusations that the New England Patriots intentionally deflated footballs -- has dominated news coverage in the days leading up to the game.
