Five member states plan move as bloc’s leaders agree that Moscow likely source of Salisbury attack

Theresa May appears to have convinced five EU countries to follow Britain’s lead and expel suspected Russian spies, in a bid to dismantle Vladimir Putin’s intelligence network.

Following a summit in Brussels to discuss the response to the Salisbury nerve agent attack, EU leaders gave their full-throated backing to the prime minister by adopting a statement declaring it was “highly likely Russia is responsible” for poisoning Sergei Skripal and his daughter, Yulia.

US president calls on Brussels to respond in kind to temporary amnesty, while move against Beijing hits stock markets

Financial markets have taken fright after Donald Trump fired the latest shots in an escalating trade war between the world’s two biggest economies by announcing $60bn (£42.5bn) of further tariffs on China.

Amid relief in Brussels that the EU had won a temporary reprieve from Trump’s already announced action to protect the US from imports of steel and aluminium, Wall Street braced itself for retaliation from Beijing.

Mummified remains from Chilean ghost town revealed to be baby girl with malformations so bizarre they led to speculation over alien life

When the mummified remains of a six-inch humanoid were found in an abandoned mining town in Chile’s Atacama desert 15 years ago, speculation on its origins ran wild. The skeleton, which was sold to a private collector in Spain, was so bizarre it appeared in a documentary as potential evidence for alien life.

Now scientists in California have extracted DNA from the mummy’s bones and pieced together the real and tragic story of the individual, known as Ata. Rather than a visitor from another world, Ata was a girl who appears to have been stillborn, or to have died immediately after birth, with devastating mutations that shaped her extraordinary body.

Concerns raised about future testing as footage suggests fatal collision in Arizona was failing of system’s most basic functions

Video of the first self-driving car crash that killed a pedestrian suggests a “catastrophic failure” by Uber’s technology, according to experts in the field, who said the footage showed the autonomous system erring on one of its most basic functions.

Days after a self-driving Uber SUV struck a 49-year-old pedestrian while she was crossing the street with her bicycle in Tempe, Arizona, footage released by police revealed that the vehicle was moving in autonomous mode and did not appear to slow down or detect the woman even though she was visible in front of the car prior to the collision. Multiple experts have raised questions about Uber’s Lidar technology, which is the system of lasers that the autonomous cars uses to “see” the world around them.

French ex-president says there is no proof he received millions in illegal election campaigning

The former French president Nicolas Sarkozy has denounced allegations that he received millions of euros in illegal election campaign funding from the regime of the late Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi as “crazy” and “monstrous”.

“There is no proof ... not even the slightest beginning of any proof,” Sarkozy told French TV after he was placed under formal investigation for illegal campaign financing, accepting bribes and the misappropriation of Libyan state funds over allegations that he received the illegal funding from Gaddafi for his election in 2007.

Ruling comes days after a Romanian court refused to declare a living man alive

Days after a Romanian court refused to declare a living man alive, another tribunal has ruled that a dead man can have his driving licence back.

Cosby’s team contends that the judge’s rulings could appear to be influenced by his wife, an ‘activist and advocate for assault victims’

Lawyers for fallen TV comedy actor Bill Cosby on Thursday asked the judge in his sexual assault retrial scheduled for next month to step aside. They argued that the judge could be seen as biased because his wife is a social worker who has described herself as an “activist and advocate for assault victims”.

Cosby’s team contends that some of Judge Steven O’Neill’s recent pretrial rulings could give the appearance he is being influenced by his wife’s work, particularly his decision last week to let prosecutors have up to five additional accusers testify. He allowed just one at the first trial.

In the poorly serviced capital of the Philippines, the poorest citizens have taken to living where no one else will – alongside the dead

“I have lived here for 51 years – and I have been trying to leave for 51 years,” says Elvira Miranda. “The government want us gone, and we also want to go. But we need somewhere to go.”

Miranda, 68, has been living with her husband and children in a teetering shanty above a stack of graves in Manila North Cemetery since 1966. It is the kind of situation you might find yourself in if, like Miranda, you’re poor, you have no job and you live in one of the world’s most notoriously crowded cities.

Cities can be dense without being overpopulated. But in the world’s most crowded city, the drains can’t cope – creating a grim new job

After decades cleaning the sewers of Dhaka, Bangladesh’s crowded capital, Sujon Lal Routh has seen plenty of misery. But the tragedy of 2008 was the worst. After a day of heavy rainfall left the streets flooded – as usual – seven workers were assigned to clear a blocked manhole in Rampura, in the centre of the city. Normally, cleaners cling to ropes to stop them getting sucked in by surging water when they clear blockages. But this group were new to the job. “They didn’t know about the impending danger or how to work in that situation,” says Sujon. “So, sewer water swallowed them.”

Bystanders smashed the road open with hammers and shovels. Eventually, they dragged out three workers, dead. Another four were seriously injured; one later died in hospital. “The accident instilled fear in us, and for months we were even afraid to look into the sewers,” says Sujon.

At a high-level talking shop for the global water industry in Brazil, river defenders and community activists - who are often murdered or criminalised for trying to protect their resources - have set up an alternative forum to share their stories

While presidents, royalty and corporate dignitaries gave speeches at a global conference in Brasil’s federal capital this week on the need to protect water sources, river defender Ageu Lobo Pereira was running for his life through the Amazon forest.

The head of the riverine communities of Montanha e Mangbal had been tipped off that assassins were preparing an ambush. They wanted to end his resistance to mines, deforestation and dams that threaten the Tapajós river.

Up to 7,500 fighters and their families will be deported as part of the deal, which followed assurances from Russian military officers that other civilians in the Harasta neighbourhood could remain in their homes.

Bad management has left me disillusioned by the aid sector, and its shocking lack of urgency in helping those driven to despair by hunger

I recently resigned from my job with a non-governmental organisation in Africa. After years of working in the sector, I have been left disillusioned with the ethos and impact of these organisations.

The sector is filled with the wrong people with the wrong motivations and the wrong agenda. It is, after all, a business enterprise worth $27.3bn, at least in 2016. Missions in country are incentivised by money. The more you can raise, the happier your colleagues in the region and in headquarters because some of that money goes into paying their salaries and office rents – and your performance in the country is linked to that, rather than the quality of the programmes you are running.

To mark World Water Day, NGO says accessing water is getting more difficult in world’s most environmentally stressed nations

Water inequality is increasing in the world’s most environmentally stressed nations, warn the authors of a report that shows more than 800 million people need to travel and queue for at least 30 minutes to access safe supplies.

Despite an overall increase in provision of tap water, the study - the State of the World’s Water 2018 - charts the gaps within and between nations, as poor communities face competition over aquifers and rivers with agriculture and factories producing goods for wealthier consumers.

Study says terminations have nearly halved in 25 years, but higher rates, particularly of unsafe abortions, occur ‘overwhelmingly’ in poorer nations

Rates of abortion have dropped significantly across the world in the past quarter-century, but the decline has been predominantly in the developed world, according to a report.

Evidence gathered by the US-based Guttmacher Institute, a research and advocacy group for reproductive health, suggests the procedure, which kills tens of thousands of women every year, has become safer in many parts of the world.

Non-Syrian jihadists can seem an attractive prospect to women desperate for security in a country torn by conflict, but such unions can prove devastating

“I got married to a foreign fighter from the Maldive Islands in 2016 and he was killed in the clashes against regime forces in the same year. I was pregnant by this man and then I gave birth three months after his death.”

For this 30-year-old woman from Maaret al-Nu’man, in Idlib province, insecurity had driven her to marry. “My parents had been killed in an airstrike by the regime. As a result, I kept on moving among my five married brothers’ places but mostly at the oldest brother’s house. I wasn’t feeling comfortable on account of instability and I was feeling that I was such a dependent woman. I decided to get married.”

China has been flouting intellectual property rules and it does has more to lose

Here come the trade wars – possibly. The Trump administration’s imposition of tariffs on $60bn (£42.5bn) of imports from China could be a huge moment for the global economy. Past presidents toyed with the idea of branding China a “currency manipulator” but have always stepped away from action. Trump hasn’t gone down that route, with its ill-defined policy implications, but has instead gone for the jugular. China is deemed guilty of “economic aggression” by pinching US intellectual property and must pay a price.

The consequences of that declaration depend on two things. First, will the size of the tariffs match Trump’s rhetoric about China engaging in abuse over decades? It is possible measures will be watered down if financial markets throw a wobbly, but Trump had advertised his intentions since taking office and you will struggle to find a chief executive of a large multinational that does not think China plays fast and loose. Chinese abuse of intellectual property rules is not a secret.

Andrei Zheleznyakov was working on chemical weapons in the 1980s when a hood malfunction exposed him to the deadly nerve agent

Before former spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia collapsed on a park bench in Salisbury on 4 March, the only other person confirmed to suffer the effects of novichok was a young Soviet chemical weapons scientist.

“Circles appeared before my eyes: red and orange. A ringing in my ears, I caught my breath. And a sense of fear: like something was about to happen,” Andrei Zheleznyakov told the now-defunct newspaper Novoye Vremya, describing the 1987 weapons lab incident that exposed him to a nerve agent that would eventually kill him. “I sat down on a chair and told the guys: ‘It’s got me.’”
