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”.

The last of the 12-member "Wild Boars" soccer team and their coach were brought out of the Tham Luang cave, near the border with Myanmar, on Tuesday night, safely ending a perilous rescue and evoking international relief and joy. The boys and their coach have been in hospital in the northern town of Chiang Rai since they were brought to safety.

Haiti prime minister resigns after deadly unrest

Haiti prime minister resigns after deadly unrestPort-au-Prince (AFP) - Embattled Haiti Prime Minister Jack Guy Lafontant resigned on Saturday following deadly violence and looting sparked by a now-abandoned plan to raise fuel prices, triggering a fraught process to form a new government. "I submitted my resignation to the president of the republic," who has "accepted my resignation," Lafontant said in the lower house of Haiti's legislature. Last week, the government in the impoverished Caribbean country announced plans for major fuel price hikes -- 38 percent for gasoline, 47 percent for diesel and 51 percent for kerosene.

Salisbury's fears continue after police admit there could be more Novichok out there

Salisbury's fears continue after police admit there could be more Novichok out therePolice have admitted there could still be traces of deadly Novichok nerve agent in Salisbury, prompting renewed concern over the safety of residents and the continued impact on the city’s tourism economy. The warning came after officers discovered a small glass bottle at the Wiltshire home of Charlie Rowley, which has since tested positive for the chemical. Mr Rowley’s girlfriend Dawn Sturgess, 44, died in hospital last Sunday evening after being exposed to the nerve agent the previous weekend. Salisbury couple He was also taken to hospital critically ill, but has since regained consciousness and has been interviewed by police. It is thought Mr Rowley, 45, was able to help detectives as to the whereabouts of the source of the contamination when he emerged from his coma last week. The rise of biological and chemical weapons After Salisbury, how ready is the UK? Further tests on the bottle and its contents are now being carried out and it is hoped it could provide crucial evidence to prove who attacked the former Russian double agent, Sergei Skripal and his daughter, Yulia, in March. But announcing the discovery of the bottle as “a significant and positive development”, Assistant Commissioner Neil Basu, the Head of UK Counter Terrorism Policing, also warned: “We cannot guarantee that there isn’t any more of the substance left and cordons will remain in place for some considerable time. This is to allow thorough searches to continue as a precautionary measure for public safety and to assist the investigation team.” AC Basu added: “The safety of the public and our officers remains paramount and we are continuing to work closely with Wiltshire Police, scientists, health experts from Public Health England and other partners.” PHE has maintained its advice to the public not to pick up any discarded object in the Salisbury area, such as containers, lids, syringes, needles, cosmetics, which could contain liquid or gel. Scotland Yard said tests at the Defence, Science and Technology Laboratory at Porton Down, Wiltshire, had confirmed to that the substance contained in the bottle was Novichok and further tests are being carried out to establish whether it came from the same batch that contaminated Mr Skripal and his daughter. Police outside the home of Charlie Rowley, 45, in Muggleton Road in Amesbury, Wiltshire, where a bottle containing Novichok was found Credit: Steve Parsons/PA Police yesterday said their search teams had recovered over 400 exhibits, samples and items as part of the ongoing police investigation. Scotland Yard also warned that searches for any other potential sites or sources of contamination  are expected to continue for several weeks, if not months. AC Basu described the investigation as "one of the most complex and difficult that UK policing has ever faced". But the fact police have yet to confirm how the bottle came into the possession of Mr Rowley and Miss Sturgess and where they found it has left Salisbury residents deeply uneasy. Novichok poisoning - Salisbury – Amesbury timeline and map It is thought they may have come across it in Queen Elizabeth Gardens, close to the centre of Salisbury, before catching a bus to Mr Rowley's home, where they collapsed within hours of each other. The large park has since been sealed off by police. Sabrina Burr, 38, who lives less than 200 metres away from Mr Rowley’s home in Muggleton Road, Amesbury, said: “I can’t believe that something so deadly could be so close. It’s scary to think what could have happened, children play around here, what if something happened to them? “I’m quite concerned that anyone around here could have been exposed, it makes me a little angry. Is there more of it?” Ms Burr added: “I’m happy police have found it but I hope this is the only source of it, if they could just pick it up, then anyone could.” Officers yesterday continued their forensic examination of Mr Rowley’s home, where a fire engine and a special incident response ambulance remained in position. Another of Mr Rowley’s neighbours said she is now scared to let her children play either on the green next to his home or in Queen Elizabeth Gardens. She said: “It's really scary knowing that something that can kill you so easily was just hundreds of metres away from my home and children. “You would see Charlie and Dawn around, they were always very nice, but to think they were carrying something so deadly is horrible.” She added: “It's scary that they were able to just pick it up off of the floor. I hope there isn’t anymore, but you just never know, I don’t think we will ever know for sure.” Matthew Dean, leader of Salisbury City Council, told The Sunday Telegraph: “A very big question remains over how the container got there and if it was found by one of them in Salisbury what are the implications for the people of the town.” Yulia Skripal, who survived a Novichok assassination attempt on her and her father Sergei, a former Russian spy Credit: Dylan Martinez/PA The impact of the second Novichok poisoning has left Salisbury’s economy reeling, just as it was starting to recover from the fall out of the attack on the Skripals. Footfall in local shops has dropped by an estimated thirty per cent, a similar drop to that which followed the Skripal attack - but at a time when the cathedral city should be busy with tourists. Local sources say many American coach parties have simply stopped coming to Salisbury, a favourite location close to Stonehenge. The Government is to provide a £5 million recovery package for the city to support businesses, boost tourism and meet unexpected costs. Mr Dean said: “People are very nervous about the continuing economic impact on the area. We have had very poor tourist numbers this year, despite the good weather. People are very concerned about that especially after they had started to feel they had turned a corner after the March attack.”

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.

Parliament vote to reveal extent of anger over May's Brexit planBy William James LONDON (Reuters) - British Prime Minister Theresa May will face the anger of Brexit supporters in her party on Monday when they try to force her to change course on her strategy for leaving the European Union. May is battling for her political survival after announcing a Brexit negotiating strategy that enraged eurosceptics in her Conservative Party, who see it as a plan to keep Britain too closely tied to Brussels. The size of the threat should become clear on Monday when lawmakers vote on amendments to legislation on the government's post-Brexit customs regime, with leading eurosceptics set to vote in favor of amendments that May opposes and back their own proposals to toughen up her exit plan.

Emmanuel Macron pictured in emphatic celebration as France lift World Cup in Russia

Emmanuel Macron pictured in emphatic celebration as France lift World Cup in RussiaEmmanuel Macron celebrated France's victory over Croatia in the World Cup final with his own animated display of patriotism. The French president was seen wildly gesticulating from the VIP area in the stands next to a more subdued Vladimir Putin, the Russian leader, and Kolinda Grabar-Kitarović, Croatia's president. Before embracing the players after the final whistle - and opting to kiss 19-year-old goalscorer Kylian Mbappé on the head - Mr Macron was pictured pumping his fists in the air as he looked down on the packed Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow. As his team collected the cup on the pitch he joined Mr Putin and Mrs Grabar-Kitarović in handing out the winners and runners-up medals. Before the game Mr Putin said he told France's leader at a bilateral meeting that it's about time for Russia and France to "get over" the difficulties straining their relations. Mr Macron kissed Kylian Mbappé on the head before France were presented with the cup Credit: DYLAN MARTINEZ/ REUTERS Mr Putin met on Sunday in Moscow with French President Emmanuel Macron. Mr Macron's office said he wanted to make Europe's voice heard after last week's contentious Nato summit and before Putin's summit with US President Donald Trump. In the run-up to his election in 2017, Mr Macron accused the Kremlin of election meddling, saying that servers belonging to his campaign were hacked by a group likely to be associated with Russia.

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.
