Mueller report examines '10 episodes' of potential obstruction by Trump - Barr

Thu, 18 Apr 2019 14:19:44 GMT

Attorney general defends president at press conference ahead of the report?€?s release, saying ?€?there was no collusion?€?

The US attorney general, William Barr, has said the Mueller report describes ?€?10 episodes?€? in which Donald Trump engaged in potential obstruction of justice, but emphasised that the investigation had found ?€?no collusion?€? between the Trump campaign and Russia?€?s efforts to interfere in the 2016 US election.

Speaking at a news conference on Thursday morning before the release of a redacted version of the report, Barr sought to draw a ?€?bottom line?€? under the report by the special counsel, Robert Mueller. He made broad claims that it cleared the president of suspected wrongdoing, while admitting that he disagreed with some of Mueller?€?s findings and pleading for Trump?€?s behavior to be considered in ?€?context?€?.

Ukraine elections: actor and comedian poised to win crushing victory

Thu, 18 Apr 2019 09:14:50 GMT

Volodymyr Zelenskiy is hot favourite to triumph in Sunday?€?s presidential election

Latest polling in Ukraine suggests that the actor and comedian Volodymyr Zelenskiy, who has eschewed traditional political campaigning and given little insight into his policy positions, is set to win a crushing victory in Sunday?€?s presidential election.

Zelenskiy is known for his television series Servant of the People in which he plays a history teacher who wins a shock victory in presidential elections. He is now odds-on to pull off the feat in real life, after capitalising on widespread disappointment with the incumbent, Petro Poroshenko, who won elections in 2014 after the Maidan revolution kicked out the previous government.

Thu, 18 Apr 2019 14:24:04 GMT

Lawyer for Patrick Karegeya?€?s family says police failures point to abuse of process

At the end of a 20-minute inquest in Johannesburg, the magistrate Mashiane Mathopa told relatives of the former spy boss, who was found strangled in a Johannesburg hotel room on 1 January 2014, that there was a prima facie case to answer and he was sending the matter to South Africa?€?s National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) for action.

Barcelona school removes 200 sexist children's books

Thu, 18 Apr 2019 12:47:20 GMT

Other schools look to follow after Tber school takes out one-third of its collection, deeming the books ?€?highly stereotypical and sexist?€?

Several schools across Barcelona are considering purging their libraries of stereotypical and sexist children?€?s books, after one removed around 200 titles, including Little Red Riding Hood and the story of the legend of Saint George, from its library.

The Tber school?€?s infant library of around 600 children?€?s books was reviewed by the Associaci Espai i Lleure as part of a project that aims to highlight hidden sexist content. The group reviewed the characters in each book, whether or not they speak and what roles they perform, finding that 30% of the books were highly sexist, had strong stereotypes and were, in its opinion, of no pedagogical value.

‘It’s not just a wolf whistle’: how catcalls became anti-harassment street art

Mon, 15 Apr 2019 12:25:20 GMT

With teenage girls a particular target of street harassment, Farah Benis is on a mission to document incidents and raise awareness

CatcallsofLdn is an Instagram account that raises awareness about street harassment using chalk art. Inspired by and working with @catcallsofnyc, founder Farah Benis collects submissions from the public then chalks them onto the pavement in the place where they happened. The hope is that chalking, documenting and sharing images of the words will help to raise awareness of street harassment and ultimately prevent it.

72% of submissions are from under 17-year-olds, 60% of those were wearing school uniforms and 100% of the perpetrators were adult men

How to identify a body: the Marchioness disaster and my life in forensic pathology

Thu, 18 Apr 2019 05:00:25 GMT

In my career, I have investigated many of the UK?€?s worst disasters. Few cases were as harrowing as the sinking of the Marchioness in 1989, which left scores dead and almost impossible to identify. By Richard Shepherd

  • Warning: this piece contains graphic descriptions of dead bodies.

I took a call early one Sunday morning in August 1989 to warn me that there had been a disaster. It was during the summer holidays and I was the forensic pathologist in charge of London and the south-east of England. At this stage, no one knew how many bodies there would be but one thing was certain: there would be bodies.

The catastrophe had occurred on the River Thames. I waited for more news before setting off; my first stop was the police pier in Wapping, to the east of the city. A leisure boat had sunk somewhere near Southwark and bodies recovered from the vessel were here. That was all I knew. An old police sergeant greeted me and, to my astonishment, he was close to tears.

Bill Drummond to lead Irish border poll and hand out hot cross buns

Thu, 18 Apr 2019 14:37:55 GMT

The KLF founder will ask citizens if they agree with a clause he proposes adding to the Good Friday agreement

His best-known actions include burning 1m, firing blanks at the 1992 Brit awards and dropping a dead sheep on the red carpet of a luxury hotel as a member of the KLF. But Bill Drummond?€?s latest public display is more sedate: on Good Friday, he will stand on the Irish border, handing out homemade hot cross buns and conducting an informal referendum.

Between 10am and 12pm on 19 April, Drummond will ask the first 40 people who cross the border between Derry and Donegal whether they agree or disagree with adding a clause of his creation to the Good Friday agreement:

Alan García obituary

Thu, 18 Apr 2019 14:50:00 GMT
Former Peruvian president dogged by corruption claims, who was a divisive force in his country?€?s politics

Alan Garca, who has taken his own life aged 69, was a dominant, if divisive, figure in Peruvian politics for more than 30 years, during which he was twice democratically elected as president. His first stint in office, during which parts of the economy threatened to run out of control, was from 1985 to 1989. He then spent a decade out of power, for the most part in foreign exile, before re-election in 2006. During his second presidency Garca oversaw a more economically stable era until departing in 2011, but later was dogged by allegations that he had taken bribes while in office.

Born in the Peruvian capital, Lima, to Carlos Garca Ronceros, an accountant, and Nytha Prez Rojas, a teacher, Garca was politically active from an early age, when he and his father were involved in the American Popular Revolutionary Alliance (APRA), a leftwing nationalist grouping founded in the 1920s. After studying law at the Pontifical Catholic University of Peru, the National University of San Marcos and for a period in Spain, he rose to become the party?€?s general secretary from 1983 until 1985.

'Malicious': Shorten and business groups defy Coalition's assault on climate policy

Thu, 18 Apr 2019 07:26:47 GMT

High-quality international offsets should be part of any credible policy, industry says

Business groups are defying the Morrison government?€?s political assault on the use of international permits, arguing a credible climate policy should include access to high-quality international offsets, because they are a key mechanism to help Australia meet its Paris target.

With climate change persisting as a significant campaign flashpoint, the chief executive of the Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry, James Pearson, told Guardian Australia international permits were part of the toolkit for mitigating climate change in a cost-effective way.

Thu, 18 Apr 2019 10:50:38 GMT

Aziza?€?s story reflects the growing number of violent public assaults on women deemed to be in breach of sharia law in Afghanistan

One of four women who was recently subjected to a brutal public lashing by armed Taliban fighters in Afghanistan has spoken about her experience, amid an increase of violent punishments given to those violating its strict interpretation of religious law.

Aziza, who like many other Afghan women only uses one name, was rounded up by the Taliban?€?s shadow police for being out of her house without her husband and not being fully veiled. She was beaten so badly she lost consciousness.

As a voluntary agreement is struck for forces to withdraw from the port city, two friends recount the horror of conflict in their neighbourhood in Yemen

Friends Majed Al-Wahidi and Ali Al-Zazai remember the constant buzzing of drones overhead in Hodeidah on 18 November last year.

Majed, a teacher and father of six daughters, had left Ali?€?s house to return to his home nearby, but went back because he had forgotten his lighter. It was about 5pm and Majed?€?s daughters were in their bedroom, having taken a break from studying to pray in their modest, corrugated iron-covered home.

Wed, 17 Apr 2019 17:02:39 GMT

Judge rules that stopping access to safe housing, counselling and financial assistance after 45 days risks ?€?irreparable harm?€?

A high court judge has suspended a Home Office policy that cuts off after six weeks all statutory support to slavery victims in the UK, ruling that it risks causing ?€?irreparable harm to very vulnerable individuals?€?.

The Home Office must now immediately extend assistance to all slavery and trafficking victims requiring support in the UK, estimated to be about 600 people, over the next few months.

Trump's attacks on Ilhan Omar aim to stoke fears ahead of the 2020 election

Thu, 18 Apr 2019 12:56:45 GMT

Trump and Republicans are using Omar to drive a wedge within the Democratic party and ?€?foment hatred of Muslim Americans?€?

When Ilhan Omar became one of the first two Muslim women elected to Congress in November, the American Muslim community saw her victory as a symbolic rejoinder to Donald Trump.

Omar?€?s remarkable journey - from a Somali refugee camp to the Minnesota state legislature and the hallways of the US Capitol - stood out among a historically diverse class of freshman lawmakers. The sight of Omar?€?s hijab on the House floor, made possible only by a rules change that for the first time in 181 years allowed religious headwear inside the chamber, reinforced the immediacy of her impact.
