Theresa May summoned her cabinet to an emergency meeting on Wednesday afternoon to sign off her long awaited final Brexit deal, prompting hard-Brexit Tories to call for senior ministers to stand up and block it.
‚ÄúI think January, February would be about as late as you can do it and as early as you can gather enough information,‚ÄĚ said Bloomberg.
President Donald Trump appears to have committed a gaffe in the White House celebration of Diwali today. Although he mentioned its origins as the Hindu Festival of Lights, he neglected to mention that it is celebrated by Hindus several times on Twitter until finally getting it right
So after initially not including Hindus in his first Diwali tweet, Trump deletes that tweet and reposts another message. And still leaves out Hindus... https://t.co/4Rw5VLkVUe
Palestinian militants fire 400 rockets and mortars while Israel planes bomb 100 sites
Israeli forces and Palestinian militants in Gaza have locked themselves into an escalating firefight, launching scores of bombings and reprisal attacks in violence sparked by a botched Israeli special forces raid miles inside Gaza on Sunday evening.
The United Nations and Egypt, which works as an interlocutor between Israel and Gaza‚Äôs Hamas rulers, were struggling to broker a ceasefire, as Israeli civilians hid overnight in shelters from relentless rocket barrages and Palestinians cowered in basements from thundering airstrikes.
Opposition demands no-confidence vote on Andrej BabiŇ°‚Äôs minority government
The political future of Andrej BabiŇ°, the scandal-tainted Czech prime minister, has been plunged into fresh doubt after his son said he had been lured to Crimea and abducted to stop him testifying about alleged criminal fraud in his father‚Äôs business dealings.
Opposition parties demanded a parliamentary no-confidence vote on BabiŇ°‚Äôs minority coalition government after the Czech news site Seznam Zpr√°vy broadcast a documentary that included footage of his son, Andrej BabiŇ° Jr, making dramatic allegations apparently implicating his father.
Turkish president keeps up pressure on Saudi crown prince, as pro-government paper publishes x-rays of hit team‚Äôs luggage
Audio evidence related to the killing of the journalist Jamal Khashoggi contains appalling details of the crime, the Turkish president, Recep Tayyip Erdońüan, has said, as he continues to pile pressure on the Saudi crown prince, Mohammed bin Salman.
Erdońüan‚Äôs latest intervention came as the New York Times reported that a member of the Saudi hit team dispatched to Istanbul to kill Khashoggi told one of his superiors by phone to ‚Äútell your boss‚ÄĚ the operation was accomplished, an apparent reference to Prince Mohammed, and a Turkish newspaper published x-ray images of the team‚Äôs luggage, which included defibrillators and syringes.
Report bitterly contested by scientists who say threat comes from climate change, which has pushed bears closer to humans ‚Äď not because the population is growing
Too many polar bears are roaming the Canadian Arctic, and the growing population is posing an increasing threat to Inuit communities, according to a controversial new government report which has been bitterly contested by environmental scientists.
The draft report was prepared by the Nunavut government, and consists of submissions from Inuit community groups across Canada‚Äôs northernmost territory. Public consultations are set to start on Tuesday before the government unveils the final report later in the year.
400 migrants arrive by bus after splitting from caravan
Troops erect barbed wire and barricades at California crossing
Hundreds of Central American migrants planning to seek asylum in the United States have reached the Mexican border city of Tijuana as the US military reinforced security measures, laying barbed wire and erecting barricades.
Purportedly sacked PM Ranil Wickremesinghe says president is ‚Äėnot above the law‚Äô
Sri Lanka‚Äôs supreme court has suspended the president‚Äôs controversial decision to dissolve parliament and MPs are planning to meet to decide between the two men claiming to be the country‚Äôs lawful prime minister.
In a verdict hailed as one of the most important in Sri Lankan history, the court ruled on Tuesday evening to suspend the order by the president, Maithripala Sirisena, calling for fresh elections that followed his attempt to install Buddhist strongman Mahinda Rajapaksa in the prime minister‚Äôs office.
London court hears Sheikh Khalifa had agreed to make payments to a third party
A super-wealthy member of the Bahraini royal family has been accused of reneging on a promise to pay $35m (¬£27m) to meet 26 Bollywood stars for whom he had an ‚Äúunbridled desire and fantasy‚ÄĚ.
A London court heard that Sheikh Hamad Isa Ali al-Khalifa, a cousin of the billionaire king of Bahrain and nephew of the country‚Äôs deputy prime minister, had agreed to pay an Egyptian middle man $1.5m for setting up each meeting plus a bonus payment of $500,000 for each third meeting.
Minister announces plan to re-enter mine after explosions killed dozens eight years ago
Eight years after an explosion killed 29 men in New Zealand‚Äôs Pike River mine the government has announced it will stage a manned re-entry to reclaim the bodies, following years of pleas from family members.
Re-entry is scheduled for February and work is already underway to prepare the main drift entrance for the mission, including pumping methane out and pumping nitrogen in.
On Sunday, Romans will vote in a referendum to address a failing transport system that lags behind virtually all European capitals
The images were dramatic: a packed escalator giving way, hurtling dozens of passengers violently downward at Rome‚Äôs Repubblica metro station.
To many of the city‚Äôs residents, however, the 23 October accident was hardly shocking. The explosion of a bus in May on the central shopping street Via del Tritone was no less than the 10th bus to blow up in Rome this year. And although there were no reported injuries, there were 22 bus blasts last year and 14 in 2016, most of which were blamed on short circuits.
Due to its unparalleled exposure to natural disasters, Manizales in central Colombia is globally recognised for its innovative approach to prevention and response
On the evening of 13 November 1985, Luz Estrella Ar√≠as was at home with her young daughter in Rio Claro, a hamlet in Caldas in the heart of Colombia‚Äôs coffee region. When she heard the roar, at first she thought it was a truck overturning. Then she heard the screams.
‚ÄúMy first instinct was to stay in the house,‚ÄĚ she says. ‚ÄúMy husband had a prize cockerel that we couldn‚Äôt afford to lose. But then the water started coming in, so I grabbed my daughter and stepped outside. The water swept me off my feet, but I managed to grab a coffee plant and hang on.‚ÄĚ She swings from one of the pillars of her porch, recreating the gesture.
With a new ‚ā¨2m fishing quay due to open in Senegal‚Äôs capital in February, has modernity finally come for the Soumbedioune fishmongers?
Photographs by Xaume Olleros for the Guardian
It is not the large-eyed dentex‚Äôs lucky day. But it is Yelli Diop‚Äôs.
The Senegalese fisherman has had a very successful haul, and arrives back on Dakar‚Äôs shores with several boxes of fish in the hull. His brightly painted pirogue ‚Äď a long, narrow canoe used by the fishermen here ‚Äď is pulled up on the beach, a length of pipe wedged under it to keep it on the sand, and the orangey-pink fish unceremoniously dumped with dozens of its kin into a crate.

The outcomes of Trump‚Äôs meltdown could be far worse when it is not Macron on the receiving end but, say, Kim Jong-un
In political science classes in the decades to come, Veterans Day Weekend 2018 is bound to be popular essay topic in the course on the Narcissist Presidency.
It has all the hallmarks of the Trump era: a fabricated story that congeals as fact in the president‚Äôs brain and moments later is broadcast on Twitter. Countless diplomats and officials are sent scurrying to limit the damage, as the chief executive doubles down, refusing to admit a mistake.
MPs who all work for ministers write to chief whip amid growing rebellion over policy
Twelve leading Conservative MPs have written to the chief whip urging the government to bow to pressure to bring forward curbs on fixed-odds betting terminals (FOBTs).
The letter comes after more than 100 MPs, including Tory rebels such as Boris Johnson, Jo Johnson, Jacob Rees-Mogg and David Davis, put their name to an amendment designed to force the government to speed up the policy.
The DUP‚Äôs leader, Arlene Foster, has given perhaps the clearest indicaton yet that her party is unwilling to give Theresa May the votes she may require to get her deal through Parliament. She has said:
We want a sensible deal which works for Northern Ireland, the United Kingdom and our neighbours in the Republic of Ireland. But our desire for a deal will not be superseded by a willingness to accept any deal.
An agreement which places new trade barriers between Northern Ireland and Great Britain will fundamentally undermine the constitutional and economic integrity of the United Kingdom. That is not acceptable.
What we‚Äôve heard and seen of the deal it is something which we would absolutely oppose.
It goes against everything the government promised it would deliver. Indeed, it‚Äôs a regurgitation of what the prime minister said last March, no British prime minister could ever sign up to and it would split the United Kingdom..
The former Brexit secretary, David Davis, who stepped down from the government because he felt unable to support May‚Äôs Chequers proposals, has echoed many of his more hardline pro-Brexit colleagues, saying:
This is the moment of truth. This is the fork in the road. Do we pursue a future as an independent nation or accept EU domination, imprisonment in the customs union and second class status?
Cabinet and all Conservative MPs should stand up, be counted and say no to this capitulation.
Funding comes as figures show international efforts to expand family planning services by 2020 are falling far short of targets
The UK government has launched a ¬£200m programme to increase the availability of contraceptives in 27 countries across Africa and Asia, in what has been described as a ‚Äúlandmark‚ÄĚ investment.
The women‚Äôs integrated sexual health (Wish) programme from the Department for International Development will expand services to young and poorer women, and aims to support an estimated six million couples a year. The International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF) and Marie Stopes International are to implement the programme.
Coalmines given approval to leave voids as ‚Äėnon-use management areas‚Äô that do not require filling or remediation
Mine rehabilitation laws expected to be passed by the Queensland parliament this week would allow coalminers to leave more than 200 voids as pockmarks on the state‚Äôs landscape.
In recent days the mining sector, in a campaign backed by both the Queensland Resources Council and the Construction, Forestry, Maritime, Mining and Energy Union, has piled pressure on the government to delay the legislation and ensure new regulations would not be retrospective.
Organisation cites ‚Äėapparent indifference‚Äô to atrocities committed against the Rohingya by Myanmar‚Äôs military
Amnesty International has withdrawn a prestigious human rights award from Aung San Suu Kyi, following what it described as a ‚Äúshameful betrayal‚ÄĚ of the values she once stood for.
It is the latest in a series of accolades to be withdrawn from Aung San Suu Kyi, including the US Holocaust Museum‚Äôs Elie Weisel award and Freedom of the City awards, which were revoked by Edinburgh, Oxford, Glasgow and Newcastle.
Footage of a young Syrian woman‚Äôs execution by her brother was greeted with widespread horror. Yet such violence is all too common ‚Äď and as a member of the Free Syrian Army, with its own police and courts, the man is untouchable
Kalashnikov in hand, the man looks into the camera. He stands over a terrified girl, who is pleading for her life.
‚ÄúMake sure we can see both your faces,‚ÄĚ a voice orders.
I‚Äôve long refused to wear a poppy, recalling ‚Äėthe old lie‚Äô; but I‚Äôm now confronting my own refusal to learn
A few houses away from me, a young man died. Sergeant Sutton from the London Regiment was killed in 1918. He was 22, the son of Harry and Rebecca. A couple of doors down, a 19-year-old died. An Irish family who lived nearby lost Private Patrick Joseph O‚ÄôBrien. On the next road, the neighbours at Nos 72 and 74 each lost a son. Rifleman Claude Arthur Ashby died a month before the war ended. He was 17.
It‚Äôs a very middle-class thing never to have known anyone in the army, and I can‚Äôt imagine my current neighbours‚Äô kids joining up. But 17? God. I saw a picture once of a soldier who had wet himself in terror under bombardment. A frightened child. So many frightened children. So long ago. A pointless war. I remember learning about the poetry that taught me not to fall for ‚Äúthe old lie‚ÄĚ and all that, and so I don‚Äôt wear poppies. One of my daughters once answered an exam question on the causes of the first world war with: ‚ÄúIt‚Äôs like they were all dressed up and had to find somewhere to go.‚ÄĚ I got what she meant. The arms race already under way between the major powers meant a war was inevitable. Only this was no party, but mass slaughter. So, no glorifying the military-industrial complex for me. Remembrance is a private act, not a public display. Terrible wars are happening right now that no one thinks can end. I know these arguments well, for I have made them. But I was wrong.
Patriotic fervour greeted Australia‚Äôs entry in 1914. By the time of the armistice on 11 November 1918, the country was marred by rancour
It was mid-afternoon on the east coast of Australia when allied commanders and their German counterparts, after meeting for several days at the forest of Compi√®gne in battle-devastated northern France, agreed to the terms that would end the first world war.
The Germans and British signed the Armistice of Compi√®gne between 5.12am and 5.20am on 11 November 1918, just as shift workers in the eastern coastal cities of Australia were heading home or into the pubs, and about lunchtime in the west.
A wildfire erupted on Monday along the 118 Freeway in Simi Valley, southern California. Firefighting aircraft were deployed to tackle the blaze, which climbed a hillside to the edge of the road as vehicles were driving past
The Camp fire in northern California has killed 42 people, making it the deadliest wildfire in state history. It is also the most destructive, incinerating the town of Paradise and displacing more than 50,000 people. Other blazes continue to rage further south
Democratic representative Kyrsten Sinema speaks about the importance of rising above personal rivalries after beating Republican Martha McSally to take Arizona's open US Senate seat. She said: 'Arizona rejected what has become far too common in our country, name-calling, petty, personal attacks and doing and saying whatever it takes just to get elected. It‚Äôs dangerous and it lessens who we are as a country, but Arizona proved there is a better way forward.' She also paid tribute to 'irreplaceable' senator John McCain, saying 'his example shines a light on our way forward.'
The race between Sinema and McSally was one of the most closely watched in the nation. Sinema is a former liberal activist who became a centrist member of Congress. Her win follows years of Democratic shutouts at the statewide level in Arizona and shows that the longtime Republican bastion is becoming a swing state. Sinema succeeds Republican senator Jeff Flake, who opted not to run.
Multiple fires have been raging in California leaving at least 31 people dead and 150,000 displaced throughout the state. The Camp fire in northern California has become the most destructive wildfire in state history, incinerating the town of Paradise
The comic writer Stan Lee, co-creator of iconic characters including Iron Man, the Fantastic Four, Spider-Man, Daredevil and the X-Men, has died aged 95. Lee, who teamed up with artists such as Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko, revitalised the comics industry with his superheroes, giving them complex emotional lives to colour their all-action adventures. The Marvel Universe he created crossed from page to screen in a series of TV and movie adaptations and changed the face of popular culture.
