French president tells Boris Johnson he must present concrete proposals for UK exit
Emmanuel Macron has described the Irish backstop as âindispensableâ to a Brexit deal and urged Boris Johnson to set out his proposed alternatives as soon as possible, as he met the British prime minister in Paris on Thursday.
The fiance of Aras Amiri, a British Council employee imprisoned in Iran on spying charges, has accused the UK government of being âutterly blind to their responsibilityâ to try to secure her release.
Financier created fund in new will two days before suicide
Experts say prying open fund will be difficult for accusers
The will that disgraced financier and sex offender Jeffrey Epstein signed just two days before his jailhouse suicide puts more than $577m in assets into a trust fund that could make it more difficult for his dozens of accusers to collect damages.
Estate lawyers and other experts say prying open the trust and dividing up the financierâs riches is not going to be easy and could take years.
Claim over Simon Cheng, of Hong Kong consulate, often used by Bejing authorities to smear critics
Chinese state media has accused a worker at the British consulate in Hong Kong was detained in mainland China for visiting prostitutes â an accusation often used by the authorities to smear the reputation of government critics.
Simon Cheng, 28, a trade and investment officer for Scottish Development International, travelled to Shenzhen, a city that borders Hong Kong, on 8 August. He sent messages to his girlfriend as he was about to cross back over the border at about 10pm and has not been heard from since.
âIt would not have happened to a white kid,â Angela Washington said after staff used a marker pen on Juelz Triceâs banned haircut
Juelz Trice came home from school earlier this year with permanent marker ink scribbled on his scalp, but it was not a prank played by one of his fellow seventh-graders. It was a punishment enacted by some of the staff.
The boyâs parents filed a federal civil rights lawsuit this week and have told the Guardian they believe the act, a hapless attempt to hide a âfadeâ haircut with a design that violated the school districtâs dress code, was rooted in racism and left him humiliated.
Brazilian president claims green groups behind blazes, which have increased 84% over same period last year
The Brazilian president, Jair Bolsonaro, has accused environmental groups of setting fires in the Amazon as he tries to deflect growing international criticism of his failure to protect the worldâs biggest rainforest.
A surge of fires in several Amazonian states this month followed reports that farmers were feeling emboldened to clear land for crop fields and cattle ranches because the new Brazilian government was keen to open up the region to economic activity.
Richard Braine accused of stoking tensions after also saying there are no âmoderate Muslimsâ
Richard Braine, the new Ukip leader, has been accused of whipping up religious tensions and anti-Muslim prejudice after leaked emails showed he argued that people should no more want Muslims to settle in their country than Nazis.
Braine, who won the leadership after a campaign in which he expressed anti-Islam views, also suggested that non-Muslims needed to help Muslims to âcast out their demonâ and argued there was no such thing as âmoderate Muslimsâ.

Bernie Sanders has laid out an ambitious 10-year, $16.3tn national mobilization to avert climate catastrophe, warning that the US risks losing $34.5tn in economic productivity by the end of the century if it does not respond with the urgency the threat demands.
The Vermont senator has long spoken of the climate crisis as a existential danger to the US and the world, and he has previously endorsed a Green New Deal, which he put forward with the New York congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

From power cuts to infrastructure failure, the impact of climate change on US cities will be huge â but many are already innovating to adapt
Between record heat and rain, this summerâs weather patterns have indicated, once again, that the climate is changing.
US cities, where more than 80% of the nationâs population lives, are disproportionately hit by these changes, not only because of their huge populations but because of their existing â often inadequate â infrastructure.
In the Netherlands, where there are more bikes than people, serious money is being spent encouraging even more people to get on their bikes
In a nation with more bikes than people, finding a space to park can be a problem. The Dutch city of Utrecht is unveiling an answer at its railway station on Monday morning: the worldâs largest multistorey parking area for bicycles.
The concrete-and-glass structure holds three floors of gleaming double-decker racks with space for 12,500 bikes, from cargo bikes that hold a family to public transport bikes for rent.
To protect itself from destructive flooding, the city has built a park designed to store and recycle rainwater
In Alicante it never rains but it pours. The city in southeast Spain goes without rain for months on end, but when it comes itâs torrential, bringing destructive and sometimes fatal flooding.
Or at least, it used to. In San Juan, a low-lying area of the city, authorities have built a new park with a twist. Called La Marjal, it serves as a typical recreation area and a nature reserve â but its primary purpose is to store, and then recycle, rainwater.
With It Chapter Two out next month, plus the news that an adaptation of The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon is back on track, we count down the finest big-screen versions of Kingâs terrifying tales
Cujo arguably has more thrills. Apt Pupil certainly has more chills. But with his sole directorial effort, Stephen King â that great chronicler of retro Americana â somehow made the perfect drive-in movie: a silly, slapdash nightmare of murderous vehicles and appliances attacking hysterical patrons (including a bewildered Emilio Estevez) at a truck stop.
Paul Bussetti, 47, says burning of cardboard tower was not meant to be about victims
The burning of a model of Grenfell Tower on a bonfire was a joke about a group of friends, not about the 72 people who lost their lives in the blaze, according to the man who filmed the footage.
Speaking at Westminster magistrates court, Paul Bussetti claimed the video â shot at an annual party held by a friend â was considered âfunnyâ by those involved. He said it was not intended to be about the victims of the 2017 fire.
Bussetti, 47, is on trial accused of sending a âgrossly offensiveâ video on WhatsApp and causing footage of a âmenacing characterâ to be uploaded on YouTube.
On Thursday, while giving evidence, the married father of two told the court it was âcertainly not the caseâ that the figures in the cardboard model, which had âGrenfell Towerâ written on it, were meant to be those who died in the fire.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is imploring Democrats not to eliminate the filibuster â a procedural rule that allows the minority party to stall or block the chamber from voting on legislation or a nominee.
âIf future Democrats shortsightedly decide to reduce the Senate to majority rule, weâll have lost a key safeguard of American government,â the Kentucky Republican writes in an op-ed published in the New York Times. âAnd â stop me if youâve heard this one â theyâd regret it a lot sooner than they think.â
HOLY MOLY. Mitch McConnell just wrote an NYT op-ed urging Dems to keep the filibuster, and threatening them if they scrap it. This is how you know it's a *really* good idea to scrap it - Mitch is scared. https://t.co/D4brQJsFqX

We members of the G7âs Gender Equality Advisory Council are urging countries to ditch archaic and discriminatory laws and promote empowerment
The sheer tenacity of women raising their voices and organising for fundamental change has been, and will continue to be, the driving force for achieving womenâs rights and a gender-equal world. Yet we cannot ignore the fundamental role that governments can play in either promoting or thwarting change.
That is why the four of us accepted French president Emmanuel Macronâs invitation to join 32 colleagues to form a G7 Gender Equality Advisory Council. On Sunday, we will present the culmination of our work; a package of recommended laws focused on ending gender-based violence; ensuring inclusive, equitable, and quality health and education; promoting the economic empowerment of women; and combating discrimination, ensuring full gender equality in policies and public life. In each area we point to laws from around the world that illustrate the type of action countries should take.

Climate emergency and population growth blamed for deteriorating water quality, with âcocktail of chemicalsâ changing as countries become richer
The planet is facing a mounting and âinvisibleâ water pollution crisis, according to a hard-hitting World Bank report, which claims the issue is responsible for a one-third reduction in potential economic growth in the most heavily affected areas.

President could call snap election, seek new coalition or install caretaker government
âThis government ends here,â said Giuseppe Conte, as he announced his resignation as Italyâs prime minister on Tuesday. After almost two weeks of twists and turns, what happens next is far from clear.

The US president said his life would be easier if he had not mounted a trade war with China but went on to say âI am the chosen oneâ to take on Beijing. Donald Trump said the US would probably make a deal with China
Large demonstrations and violent protests have taken place across the Indonesian provinces of Papua and West Papua. On Wednesday, Jakarta said it was sending a further 1,000 security personnel to tackle the unrest, sparked by the arrest of Papuan students in the Indonesian city of Surabaya.
