Germany agrees to take share of 450 migrants awaiting fate on ships off Italy

Germany agrees to take share of 450 migrants awaiting fate on ships off ItalyGermany has agreed to take 50 of 450 migrants rescued from an overcrowded boat in the Mediterranean following a plea from Italy for EU states to share responsibility. Sunday's show of goodwill came after France and Malta had already agreed to take 50 migrants each in response to letters sent to the governments of the 27 other EU members by Giuseppe Conte, the Italian prime minister, asking them to share responsibility with Rome. It also came as Horst Seehofer, the German interior minister, confirmed that Bavarian state police would be given the power to patrol the state's southern border with Austria as a part of a series of new measures aimed at clamping down on migrant arrivals.  Mr Seehofer said on Sunday that Bavarian police would be able to conduct checks at the Austrian border “at the request or with the consent of federal police,” after it was questioned whether it was legal for such power to be granted to them.  The number of people crossing the German-Austrian border illegally has dropped sharply since a dramatic influx of migrants in 2015. However, with the Bavarian regional elections in October, Mr Seehofer’s Christian Social Union (CSU), which governs in Bavaria, is under pressure to take a hard line on migration.  Earlier this month Mr Seehofer threatened to resign if chancellor Angela Merkel failed to come up with a European solution, or to allow him to implement tougher border controls. The migrants were saved by two ships, one operated by EU border agency Frontex and one owned by Italy's tax police Credit:  JORGE GUERRERO/ AFP Following the row, which threatened to tear apart the coalition government, Angela Merkel's Christian Democratic Union (CDU) and her Bavarian counterparts reached an agreement on how to control migration at the German-Austrian border.  Germany is also under pressure to share the burden of accepting and hosting new migrant arrivals from outside the bloc, as was pledged at an EU summit in Brussels last month. In light of the talks, the German government on Sunday agreed to take in its migrants who were picked up near the Italian island of Linosa, close to Malta, having sailed from Libya in a single wooden vessel.  "Germany and Italy have agreed that, in view of the ongoing talks on closer bilateral cooperation on asylum, Germany is ready to accept 50 people in this case," a German government spokeswoman said on Sunday. Immigrant relations map migrant immigration Europe Italy Mr Conte said his country would help the migrants, but needed other members of the EU to share the burden.   “This is the solidarity and responsibility that we have always asked of Europe and now, after the results obtained at the last European Council, they are beginning to become reality,” Mr Conte wrote in a Facebook post on Sunday afternoon. "Let's continue on this path with firmness and respect for human rights," he added. However the Czech Republic refused his request and Andrej Babis, the prime minister, tweeted that the approach was the "road to hell".  Boats should instead be stopped and turned back, he said, and migrants should be helped in their own countries. The migrants were saved by two ships, one operated by EU border agency Frontex and one owned by Italy's tax police.  As they awaited to learn their destiny, another day's worth of food and beverages was sent to the ships on Sunday. By late afternoon, passengers suffering from dehydration, pregnant women and some babies, including a newborn a few days old, had been taken ashore in Pozzallo. Italian media said a woman weighing 35 kilos (77 pounds) after months of malnourishment in Libya was among them. Sky TG24 TV reported that many of the rescued passengers originally are from Eritrea.  On Sunday night Matteo Salvini, Italy's interior minister, said he will allow some but not all migrants to disembark in Sicily from the overcrowded boat. "I am monitoring the situation of two ships travelling in Italian waters... there are 16 mothers and 11 children who will disembark in the next few minutes, hours...," Mr Salvini told TV channel RaiNews24.

Haiti's prime minister quits amid backlash over fuel price protests

Haiti's prime minister quits amid backlash over fuel price protestsPORT-AU-PRINCE (Reuters) - Haitian Prime Minister Jack Guy Lafontant resigned on Saturday as he faced a non-confidence vote after a move to lower fuel subsidies prompted days of violent protests in the impoverished Caribbean nation. In a speech to the Lower Chamber that was broadcast live on television, Lafontant defended his tenure but said that Haiti's President Jovenel Moise had accepted his resignation. Earlier this month, the Haitian government announced a reduction of fuel subsidies as part of an agreement with the International Monetary Fund (IMF).

Aviation giants fly into Farnborough under Brexit cloud

Aviation giants fly into Farnborough under Brexit cloudTop global plane makers land at the Farnborough airshow in England next week, hoping to pick up speed on demand for passenger jets while charting a path through Brexit and trade war turbulence. This year's sector showpiece event, opening Monday, will be buzzing on the back of rapid changes in the industry, as US titan Boeing and European arch rival Airbus vie for superiority in the skies. Chicago-headquartered Boeing could signal plans for its new midsize airplane (NMA), but reports suggest this could be derailed by the festering global trade war spearheaded by US President Donald Trump.

Six-year-old heard in ProPublica US border separation tape reunited with mother

Six-year-old heard in ProPublica US border separation tape reunited with motherA six-year-old girl who was recorded crying in a detention centre after being separated from her mother at the US-Mexico border has been reunited with her. The mother, Cindy Madrid, who had fled from El Salvador, was reunited with her daughter Alisson at Houston airport after weeks apart. Last month Alisson was heard on a tape published by ProPublica, reciting a phone number for her family as she was detained. At a press conference in Houston,  Alisson, speaking though an interpreter, said: "I was away from her for a month and I was really happy when I saw her. I was happy because I was able to see her and hug her." Her mother said: "It's so hard for a parent to be away from their kids. I was so desperate." The family's lawyer said they would be living together in Houston before an asylum hearing at an as yet unknown date. The mother had been held at a detention centre in Houston and her daughter had been taken to one in Arizona. Under the "zero tolerance" policy employed by US President Donald Trump they were separated after crossing the border illegally. Mr Trump later reversed the policy. Donald Trump's shameful border policy is alienating his supporters It came as a judge in California ordered the Trump administration to pay the costs of reuniting illegal immigrant parents with children separated from them at the border, rather than forcing the parents to pay. The US government is still working to reunite more than 2,500 children with their parents.

Elon Musk launches baseless attack on Thai cave rescue diver 

Elon Musk launches baseless attack on Thai cave rescue diver Elon Musk came under fire on Sunday after launching an extraordinary and baseless attack on a British diver who masterminded the successful rescue of 12 young Thai footballers, falsely calling him a “pedo” on social media. Mr Musk’s shocking attack on expert cave explorer Vernon Unsworth included claims that he had never seen Mr Unsworth at the cave and - the false claim - that he was a paedophile. The attack by Mr Musk, 47, came after the experienced cave diver rubbished the Telsa CEO’s plans to use a miniature submarine to save the boys. Vernon Unsworth, who led the rescue operation, had earlier accused the tech entrepreneur of creating a "PR stunt", saying Mr Musk "can stick his submarine where it hurts". "It just had absolutely no chance of working. He had no conception of what the cave passage was like," Mr Unsworth told CNN last week. "The submarine, I believe, was about five-foot-six long, rigid, so it wouldn't have gone round corners or round any obstacles." A "tiny kid-sized submarine" produced by Elon Musk's Space X rocket company being tested in a swimming pool in California   Credit: AP In a series of tweets, presented without evidence, responding to a journalist, Mr Musk shot back.: “Never saw this British expat guy who lives in Thailand (sus) at any point when we were in the caves. Only people in sight were the Thai navy/army guys, who were great. Thai navy seals escorted us in — total opposite of wanting us to leave.” In case his use of “(sus)” left room for doubt, Mr Musk doubled-down on his remarks, adding in later tweets: “Sorry pedo guy, you really did ask for it”. Mr Musk has since deleted the tweets. Neither Mr Musk or Mr Unsworth could be reached for comment on Sunday evening. Why Elon Musk is the Donald Trump of the tech world It is understood that Mr Unsworth has expert local knowledge of the Tham Luang cave system where the boys were trapped, and has several years of experience diving there. Mr Musk had earlier been mocked online after the Thai football team and its coach were rescued without the help of his submarine. Mr Musk has also previously said he would be more careful over his use of Twitter, after shareholders called for a period of “peace” in the wake of a number of social media rows. “I have made the mistaken assumption – and I will attempt to be better at this – of thinking that because somebody is on Twitter and is attacking me that it is open season. That is my mistake. I will correct it,” he said in an interview last week. Thai cave rescuer Vern Unsworth rejects Elon Musk's offer of mini-sub Social media users said his recent promise makes his false and defamatory attack on Mr Unsworth all the more inexplicable. Some users reported Mr Musk’s comments to Twitter, one reportedly saying he “shouldn’t be allowed to use “ the social network “ to unleash [his] followers on people like this”.

Rebels and families begin evacuating cradle of Syria uprising after surrender deal

Rebels and families begin evacuating cradle of Syria uprising after surrender dealHundreds of Syrian rebels and their relatives began evacuating the southern city of Daraa on Sunday under a deal to bring the "cradle" of the country's uprising back under government control. The highly symbolic transfers came as Russian-backed government forces advanced in the neighbouring province of Quneitra, with air strikes pounding rebel positions perilously close to the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights. After securing Damascus in May, President Bashar al-Assad turned his attention to rebels in the strategically vital south, where protests against his rule first erupted seven years ago. Nearly three weeks of bombardment saw beleaguered rebels agree with Russia earlier this month to hand over Daraa province, before reaching a similar deal for its capital this week. The regime fully regaining its rule over Daraa city will be a hugely symbolic blow to the opposition. People in their vehicles who fled from Daraa in late June gathering near the Syria-Jordan border Credit: Nabaa Media In 2011, teenagers were arrested for scrawling anti-Assad slogans on the walls of a school in the city, sparking mass protests against the government. A brutal crackdown saw the movement develop into a full-fledged conflict that has since killed more than 350,000 people and displaced half the country's pre-war population. Assad has regained much of the territory he initially lost to opposition groups, now comfortably holding more than 60 percent of Syria. In the south, he holds 80 of Daraa province but parts of its western countryside and most of the adjacent province of Quneitra still escape his control. On Sunday, regime forces battered Quneitra province with hundreds of missiles and seized the town of Masshara, according to the Observatory. The clashes had left 18 regime forces and 13 rebels and allied jihadists dead, the monitor said. Four air strikes also hit an opposition position in Quneitra that lies within four kilometres (less than three miles) from the sensitive buffer zone with the Israeli-annexed Golan Heights. Golan Heights - locator map The Observatory said they were the first strikes in the area in over a year, when Russia, the US, and Jordan agreed a ceasefire deal for parts of the south. Around 160,000 people who were displaced by the regime's offensive on Daraa are still trapped in Quneitra, near the border with the Golan. Israel has been on high alert in recent weeks amid the spike in hostilities in the south. The Israeli army said on Friday it had fired a missile and "very probably" destroyed a drone flying over the demilitarised zone between Israel and Syria, after intercepting another drone on Wednesday.

Exclusive: Lockheed F-35 jet price falls 6 percent to below $90 million - sourcesBy Mike Stone FARNBOROUGH, England (Reuters) - The United States has struck a preliminary deal to buy F-35 jets from Lockheed Martin worth about $13 billion, clearing the way for a larger multi-year purchase that aims to bring the cost per jet down to $80 million by 2020, sources said. The deal for 141 F-35s lowers the price of the F-35A, the most common version of the stealthy fighter jet, to about $89 million, down around 6 percent from $94.3 million in the last deal struck in February 2017, the sources familiar with the talks said. Bringing down the cost of the world's most expensive defense program is crucial to securing more orders, both in the United States and abroad.

'It's churlish to leave the team at the death': Rabid fans stick with England for third-place match

'It's churlish to leave the team at the death': Rabid fans stick with England for third-place match“England's going all the way!” a few hundred Three Lions supporters chanted at kickoff, even though the very fact that Gareth Southgate's team was playing in this third-place match against Belgium meant they weren't. The match had been derided as a repeat friendly, as England previously lost to Belgium in Kaliningrad when both teams had already qualified for the knockout stages. That didn't stop a cadre of rabid fans from coming to show their love for a side that had defied expectations by reaching its first World Cup semifinal in 28 years.  “To those of us who have been to all six games, it's almost churlish to leave the team at the death when we can say thank you and express our support,” said Garford Beck, 56, a civil servant from London who was wearing a bicorne hat with his England jersey.  Having attended all 10 qualifying matches leading up to the tournament, he also went to all seven of England's World Cup matches, criss-crossing more than 1,500 miles of eastern Europe. The third-place game ended in a disappointing 0-2 loss after England failed to convert several agonising second-half opportunities, but fans refused to be deterred.  Anton and Ashley faith wave the St George's cross outside the stadium Credit: Julian Simmonds/For The Telegraph The beating will be an afterthought compared to the upwelling of hope and pride in the team in recent weeks and the rehabilitation of manager Gareth Southgate after his infamous 1996 penalty miss. In addition, Tottenham striker Harry Kane is now a lock to become the second Englishman since Gary Lineker to win the World Cup golden boot after Belgium's Romelu Lukaku failed to score. Joanne Gover, a Sainsbury's supply chain manager from Milton Keynes, had followed the team through a third World Cup, only missing the quarterfinal when she had to fly back to the UK for work.  “We have to be there to show the team we're with them when they're with us,” she said. “All we've got is a chest cold, a bunch of (mosquito) bites and a huge hole in our credit card, but it was worth it,” Mr Garford said of the seven-week campaign. England was less than a half-hour from the final when Croatia scored an equalising goal on Wednesday, he added. “I mustn't grumble, mustn't complain, I never thought we'd be using all seven match tickets,” he said. While some 10,000 Britons attended the semifinal defeat to Croatia, the Football Association estimated that 1,500 attended the third-place match. Among them were Jamie Vardy's wife Rebekah and Harry Maguire's girlfriend Fern Hawkins.  Mr Garford also met goalkeeper Jordan Pickford's parents after the match. Harry Kane leaves the field after the disappointing loss to Belgium Credit: Julian Simmonds/For The Telegraph “It's a strange one,” said Kevin Miles of the Football Supporters Federation. “Everyone is disappointed about losing the semi-final but also proud they've come so far.” The English fans who did attend made more than their share of noise, banging on drums and singing songs. The roar was just as loud when England was on a break as when Belgium was.  James Monks, 25, of Wolverhampton said he thought third-place World Cup matches should be abolished, but said he was glad to see St Petersburg, the most beautiful Russian city he's been to yet.  He was also happy to be part of the football frenzy that had swept through England fans during the World Cup.  “Before the tournament nobody cared about England, there was no positivity toward the country,” he said. “After we put six past Panama and won the penalty (against Colombia), everyone got behind them. Hopefully that will reflect on the future.” Kevin Monks, in blue, and his group of England fans make their way into the last match of the tournament Credit: Julian Simmonds/For The Telegraph “It's united the country for once despite Brexit and everything. It's the first time in a few years people have felt national pride and togetherness,” said Philip Deaton, 38, who is from Harrogate but now teaches English in China.  The third-place match also gave less experienced fans the chance to see an England World Cup match, since tickets were much easier to come by than at the semi-final, where supporters paid hundreds or even thousands of pounds.  Anton Faith, 32, who is from Blackburn but now works at a youth football programme in Florida, was relishing the chance to see England and “get behind football coming home”. With a St George's cross wrapped around his shoulders, Russian fans were asking for selfies before the game.  He tried for several World Cup matches in the FIFA random draw but only won tickets to this one. He has woken up to the song “Three Lions (Football's Coming Home)” every game day this World Cup, his wife Ashley revealed.  “People want to be able to see their country play,” Mr Faith said. Many England fans were reluctant to leave the stadium after the match. “I'm a bit sad that it's all over to be honest, I didn't want it to end, but have to get back to work,” Mr Garford said. “We're a bit down it's all over with it, but still very proud of the team what they've done.” One thing the English seemed to have picked up here was the old Russian adage that “hope dies last”. “We're still proud, it's a good team,” Ms Gover said. “Next time we'll win it.”
