Novichok victim Charlie Rowley became contaminated after breaking bottle, brother says
The Salisbury man struck down by the Novichok nerve agent which killed his girlfriend was contaminated when the container containing the chemical weapon splintered in his hand, his brother revealed on Sunday. Charlie Rowley was discharged from hospital on Friday, after spending 20 days in hospital recovering from the effects of the military grade nerve agent which took the life of Dawn Sturgess two weeks ago. Shortly before being released from Salisbury District Hospital Mr Rowley told his brother Matthew that he and Miss Sturgess, 44, were contaminated after handling a container disguised as a perfume bottle. It came as police continued a fingertip search of Queen Elizabeth Gardens, the park in Salisbury where Mr Rowley and Miss Sturgess are believed to have stumbled across the glass bottle. Officers have been examining a river which flows through the gardens and have now also turned their attention to a toilet block next to a car park used by hundreds of people before it was sealed off. Mr Rowley told his brother Matthew that he and Miss Sturgess were contaminated after handling a container disguised as a perfume bottle Credit: AFP Detectives are understood to be continuing to question Mr Rowley, 45, following his release from hospital, in order to build up as detailed a picture as possible of the events which led to Miss Sturgess’ death. It is thought he has not yet been able to remember where he and Miss Sturgess found the container, which police believe contained the same Novichok agent used in the attack on former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia in Salisbury last March. Mr Rowley’s brother Matthew told The Sunday Telegraph his brother’s recollection of what took place was still “vague”, but he added: "He told me that they found something that looked like a perfume bottle. Dawn sprayed what was inside it on both her wrists and rubbed them together, like you do when you’re trying perfume. “Charlie said she then gave the bottle to him and somehow it splintered or broke in his hands. That’s how he must have got contaminated.” Home of Charlie Rowley where police found the source of the Novichok The bottle was discovered by police just over a week ago, during a minute search of Mr Rowley’s flat in the small town of Amesbury, a 15 minute drive north of Salisbury. The couple caught a bus to the flat after spending the afternoon and early evening in Queen Elizabeth Gardens on June 29. The next day they collapsed within a few hours of each other and were rushed to hospital. Matthew Rowley said that following the death of Miss Sturgess he was convinced his brother would also die. Novichok poisoning - Salisbury – Amesbury timeline and map “I was so thankful when they told me he had regained consciousness and was getting better and to talk to him on the phone at the hospital was such a relief,” he said. “I’m his older brother and I was so worried he was going to die. “Charlie is so angry about what happened to Dawn. Really angry. He was fond of her and his daughter got on with hers. They were like a family to him.” Mr Rowley, 47, a former mechanic and bar manager from Warminster, has not been told when he will be reunited with his brother. But it is understood that police are anxious that Charlie Rowley’s account of what happened should not be compromised by discussing it with other people. Detectives will want the opportunity to extract as much evidence as possible from Mr Rowley, who remains a key witness in the investigation into the Novichok attack and the subsequent death of Miss Sturgess. The couple were poisoned by the same nerve agent that poisoned ex-Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Credit: Jack Taylor/Getty A source who has been briefed on the progress of the investigation said: “They want to get out of Charlie the best account of where he was and what happened so they can get to the bottom of this matter.” Scotland Yard said: “We have been talking to Mr Rowley in hospital and we will of course be talking to him now he has been discharged. However we don’t intent to release further details about this process.” John Glen, the Conservative MP for Salisbury, said he hoped the continuing police investigation would not only lead to the perpetrators of the attack being brought to justice, but also reassure residents who have had to endure two chemical weapon attacks on their doorstep. “The searches are part of the investigation to find out where Dawn and Charlie picked up what appears to have been a contaminated container disguised as a perfume bottle. We all hope that for the sake of Salisbury they will soon make all the areas they have sealed off, such as the park and the couple’s homes, safe,” he said. Novichok in Salisbury: How could this happen four months after Skripal attack? Reports last week suggested police have identified the suspected perpetrators of the Novichok attack on the Skripals. Counter terror police using facial recognition technology and CCTV images reportedly identified a number of Russian agents thought to be responsible. It is believed the hit squad flew back to Russia shortly after carrying out the attack, travelling to London from Salisbury by train.

Gunman surrenders after woman killed in US supermarket hostage drama
A gunman took hostages inside a supermarket in Los Angeles on Saturday after a gun battle with police, leaving a store employee dead before the suspect handcuffed himself and surrendered, police said. The drama began at another location when a man became "involved in a family dispute which resulted in him shooting his grandmother and a female," Sergeant Barry Montgomery told journalists. "That suspect fled the location in his grandmother's vehicle, taking that female victim with him," and eventually entered a Trader Joe's supermarket in the Silver Lake neighborhood, he said.

Ceasefire between Israel and Hamas holds after intense fighting
A ceasefire between Israel and Hamas in Gaza appeared to be holding on Saturday after a round of intense fighting which sparked fears of all-out war. One Israeli soldier and three Hamas fighters were killed on Friday before Egypt and the UN were able to broker a deal to bring a halt to the escalation. Hamas said an agreement had been reached “to return to the previous state of calm”. Israel did not publicly acknowledge the ceasefire but officials said a deal had been struck. While the ceasefire seemed to be holding, the border was not completely quiet. Israel’s military said one of its tanks opened fire on a Hamas observation post after a group of Palestinians tried to break through the border fence in northern Gaza. No injuries were reported. It was not clear if the ceasefire deal included an end to the burning kites and balloons which Palestinians have flown from Gaza into Israel in recent weeks. The incendiaries have caused more than a thousand fires and burned more than 7,000 acres of fields, according to the Israeli military. More than a thousand fires have been caused by balloons carrying incendiaries Credit: MAHMUD HAMS/AFP/Getty Images Israeli media reported that Israel’s government believed the kites and balloons would stop under the deal, while a Hamas official said the ceasefire only applied to direct military weapons like mortars and rockets. While an immediate escalation appeared to have been averted, Friday’s violence was the second major flare up in a week. Some analysts have concluded that without a diplomatic breakthrough it is only a matter of time before a new war breaks out. Donald Trump’s plans for “the deal of the century” to try to bring peace between Israelis and Palestinians appears to have been downgraded to more modest proposals aimed at easing the humanitarian situation in Gaza. Jared Kushner, Mr Trump’s son-in-law and point man on Middle East peace, published an article this week in the Washington Post offering a gloomy assessment of achieving even modest progress in the Mediterranean enclave. He said there “there is no good option” in Gaza unless Hamas is forced from power or else abandons its core principles and recognises Israel. “Hamas leadership is holding the Palestinians of Gaza captive. This problem must be recognized and resolved or we will witness yet another disastrous cycle,” he said.

In Senegal, China's President Xi pledges stronger Africa ties
By Tim Cocks and Diadie Ba DAKAR (Reuters) - China's President Xi Jinping pledged during a visit to Senegal on Saturday to strengthen economic ties with Africa, a continent already awash with cheap Chinese loans in exchange for minerals and huge construction projects. Xi arrived in Senegal on Saturday for a two-day visit to sign bilateral deals, the first leg of an Africa tour that will also take him to Rwanda and South Africa, the latter for a summit of BRICS countries: Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa. China now does more trade with Africa than any other nation does, and its consistent overtures to the continent contrast sharply with the United States, whose President Donald Trump has shown little interest in it.

Russian-backed air strikes hit Islamic State in southern Syria: sources
By Suleiman Al-Khalidi AMMAN (Reuters) - Russian and Syrian jets stepped up their bombing of an Islamic State bastion along the Jordan-Israel border in southwestern Syria, as the militants pushed into areas abandoned by other rebel groups, diplomatic and opposition sources said. Islamic State-affiliated forces entrenched in the Yarmouk Basin, which borders the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights and Jordan, also repelled a ground attack by the Syrian army and its allies, the sources added. The rural area has become the main battleground in the sensitive border region after a major Syrian army offensive backed by its Russian allies routed other rebel groups who were once supported by Washington, Jordan and Gulf states.

Woman killed as gunman barricades himself inside Los Angeles supermarket
Police arrest teenage suspect after stand-off Car crashed outside Trader Joe's store Witnesses say suspect opened fire before running inside supermarket One woman killed inside store Los Angeles police arrested a suspect on Saturday evening after a gunman barricaded himself inside a supermarket, sending shoppers fleeing in terror and leaving one woman dead. Armed officers in body armour surrounded the store using mirrors to glimpse inside and help people to safety. "We have successfully taken the suspect into custody without incident," said Los Angeles police on Twitter, ending an hours long stand-off. The suspect handcuffed himself and walked out with hostages before surrendering to police. Police officers on the scene Credit: Robyn Beck/AFP One woman was killed inside the supermarket, according to Eric Garcetti, Los Angeles Mayor. It began when a suspect being chased by police after an earlier shooting crashed his vehicle before running into a Trade Joe's store in the Silverlake neighbourhood. Police said the 28-year-old was suspected of shooting his grandmother and a second woman in a family dispute, before taking off with the woman in his grandmother's car. TV footage showed police officers helping customers climb out of the windows of the supermarket as they surrounded the entrance. "We can confirm that there is an active barricaded suspect within a Trader Joe's in Silverlake," the Los Angeles Police Department wrote on its official Twitter account.

Hillary Clinton has criticized Donald Trump’s performance at the Helsinki summit earlier this week, calling his failure to tackle Vladimir Putin over Russian interference in the 2016 US election “deeply disturbing” and a “mystery”. Speaking at OzyFest – a festival of talks and music – in Central Park, New York on Saturday, Clinton also said Russian agents were targeting the November midterm elections in a renewed attempt to disrupt US democracy, and could this time attack election infrastructure such as “the servers you send results to” and “the operations of voting machines”. Clinton beat Trump by nearly 3m ballots in the popular vote in 2016, but lost in the electoral college.

India, the world's top defense importer, has purchased Russian military hardware and expertise for decades, and has been in talks with Moscow to buy S-400 long range surface-to-air missile systems.

SpaceX makes beautiful pre-dawn rocket landing at sea. See it here.
SpaceX's rocket landings are back and better than ever. After a months long dry spell, SpaceX just completed its latest and greatest rocket landing on a drone ship in the Atlantic Ocean after launching a satellite to orbit from Cape Canaveral, Florida at 1:50 a.m. EDT. SEE ALSO: Thai cave rescue saga shows how Elon Musk's narcissism gets the best of him The rocket's first stage touched down on the SpaceX drone ship "Of Course I Still Love You" (yes, that's what it's called), shortly before 2:00 a.m. and less than 9 minutes in total after the initial liftoff. You can see the start of the landing at around the 23-minute mark in the video below, but the feed cuts off before the rocket actually enters the scene. The landing marks one of the first landings and launches of the company's newest, upgraded Falcon 9 rockets, called Block 5. Before this launch, SpaceX got rid of a backlog of their Block 4 rockets by launching without landing them back on Earth. That type of launch without landing is the traditional way of getting things to orbit, but SpaceX managed to change that. The whole point in the company's rocket landings hinge on the fact that it could reduce the cost of flying to orbit. By reusing rocket stages for multiple launches, it could drive down the exorbitant cost of flying to space for companies and nations around the world. SpaceX has been killing it the past couple years. The company — founded by Elon Musk — launched 18 times in 2017. This year, the Elon Musk-founded company launched its maiden voyage of the huge Falcon Heavy rocket, which is effectively three Falcon 9 boosters strapped together.
