Volunteers fly in to wash the dead in New Zealand

Volunteers fly in to wash the dead in New ZealandKamran Nasir was in a finance lecture in Australia when a gunman slaughtered 50 people during Friday prayers at two mosques in the New Zealand city of Christchurch. Within hours he had joined a band of about 60 volunteers on their way to wash the dead victims, in the somber aftermath of New Zealand's worst modern mass shooting spree. "We got this text – they need volunteers," Nasir, 35, told Reuters.

Hero charged attacker during New Zealand mosque massacre: witness

Hero charged attacker during New Zealand mosque massacre: witnessA survivor of the Christchurch massacre has described how a heroic worshipper at one of the targeted mosques seized an empty rifle discarded by alleged gunman Brenton Tarrant and then used it to chase their attacker away. Alabi Lateef said he was praying with others inside Linwood Masjid, the second mosque attacked on Friday by self-confessed white supremacist Tarrant, when he heard the sound of gunfire. Alabi said he told worshippers to duck down and then described how he and a "brother" decided to confront the attacker during a lull in the gunfire.

U.S.-backed force says it has taken positions in Islamic State Syria camp

U.S.-backed force says it has taken positions in Islamic State Syria campU.S.-backed fighters said they had taken positions in Islamic State's last enclave in eastern Syria and air strikes pounded the tiny patch of land beside the Euphrates River early on Monday, a Reuters journalist said. "Several positions captured and an ammunition storage has been blown up," said Mustafa Bali, a spokesman for the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) militia, on Twitter late on Sunday. Backed by air power and special forces from a U.S.-led coalition, the SDF has pushed Islamic State from almost the entire northeastern corner of Syria, defeating it in Raqqa in 2017 and driving it to its last enclave at Baghouz last year.

Black boxes show 'clear similarities' with Indonesia crash, Ethiopia says

Black boxes show 'clear similarities' with Indonesia crash, Ethiopia saysBlack box data recovered from an Ethiopian Airlines plane that crashed last week show "clear similarities" with a recent crash in Indonesia of the same type of aircraft, Ethiopia's transport minister said on Sunday. The announcement came a week after Ethiopian Airlines flight 302 plummeted into a field southeast of Addis Ababa minutes into its flight to Nairobi, killing all 157 people onboard. The disaster caused the worldwide grounding of the Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft involved after aviation regulators noticed similarities with the October crash of an Indonesian Lion Air 737 MAX 8 that killed all 189 passengers and crew.

Mesut Ozil sparks new political row over wedding invite for Turkish president

Mesut Ozil sparks new political row over wedding invite for Turkish presidentThe footballer Mesut Özil has become embroiled in a new political row in Germany over reports he asked Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, Turkey’s president, to be guest of honour at his wedding. The Arsenal star resigned from the German national team last year claiming he was a victim of racism after coming under fire over his public support for Mr Erdoğan . German politicians spoke out after he was pictured with his fiancee, Amine Gulse, meeting Mr Erdoğan at Istanbul airport last week. “The fact this is still going on will disappoint a lot of football fans, including me,” Angela Merkel’s chief of staff, Helge Braun, told reporters. Bild, Germany’s highest-selling newspaper, carried reports of the wedding invitation on its front page. Last year's extraordinary political row which culminated in one of Germany’s biggest football stars quitting the national team began when Özil and Ilkay Gündoğan, another player of Turkish descent, posed for photographs with Mr Erdoğan in London. Özil's decision to pose alongside Mr Erdoğan last year set off a political row that culminated in his retirement from the German national team Credit: KAYHAN OZER/AFP Several Germans were being held in Turkey at the time as part of the regime’s crackdown on opposition and press freedom, and the footballer's decision to pose alongside the Turkish president caused widespread public anger in Germany. Many blamed the controversy for Germany’s poor performance in the World Cup, and Özil  subsequently announced his retirement from the national team on Twitter, writing: “If we win, I’m German. If we lose, I’m an immigrant." A third-generation German whose grandparents immigrated from Turkey, Özil defended his decision to pose with Mr Erdoğan as “respecting the highest office of my family's country”. He announced his engagement to Ms Gulse, a former Miss Turkey, earlier this year. “Everyone can invite whoever he likes to his wedding, and of course this also applies to Mesut Özil,” said Cem Özdemir of the Green Party, Germany’s highest-profile politician of Turkish heritage. “But both current and former national players are role models and must ask themselves whether they live up to that role if they indulge autocrats who enrich themselves at the expense of their country and make their opponents disappear in dungeons. I think that is inappropriate.”

Pressure was mounting meanwhile on the US Federal Aviation Administration, which insisted it had followed standard procedures in certifying the plane model, even as it was reported to have come under investigation by the Department of Transport. "The 737 MAX certification program followed the FAA's standard certification process," the agency said in an email to AFP.

Utrecht shooting: Turkish-born suspect, 37, on run after three killed in 'possible terror attack'

Utrecht shooting: Turkish-born suspect, 37, on run after three killed in 'possible terror attack'Police are hunting a Turkish-born 37-year-old in connection with a suspected terror attack in the Dutch city of Utrecht which has left three dead.  The gunman has been on the run since this morning, forcing vast parts of the city - including mosques and schools - into lockdown. Officers reported "multiple" injuries having been called to the incident on the tram in a residential neighbourhood on Monday morning.  The suspect was named by police in Utrecht as Gökmen Tanis, and local media reported the perpetrator escaped in a red car.  Moments before the attack, police confirmed a red Renault Clio had been stolen in a carjacking around a mile from the tram shooting.  It was later found abandoned some three miles away in a suburban area of the city.  Dutch prime minister Mark Rutte said in a press conference that if it was a terror attack, it would not undermine Dutch openness and democracy. The terror threat level to a maximum level of five in the Utrecht region, the first time that this has happened in The Netherlands. Parties have also suspended campaigning for upcoming elections. But police said they were not ruling any motive out, after a witness said it appeared the gunman was targeting one particular woman and attacking anyone who tried to help her. Mr Rutte said: "Our country has been shocked by an attack in Utrecht. The police and prosecution services are investigating what precisely happened. What is certain is that people sitting in a tram in Utrecht have been shot, there are wounded and possible dead. "Culprits with a possible terrorist motive have not been ruled out. The first reports have caused a mixture of disbelief and horror. "Violence has hit innocent people hard. Our thoughts are with them, and their near and dear. We will do everything to catch the culprit or culprits as soon as possible. "An act of terrorism is an attack on our civilisation, our open and tolerant society. If this is indeed a terror attack, there is only one answer: our rule of law and our democracy are stronger than fanaticism and violence."  Counter-terror officers preparing a raid on a house in the Trumanlaan district have surrounded a building a few hundred yards from 24 Oktoberplein where the shooting took place. All mosques in Utrecht have been evacuated and the Utrecht University and Utrecht Central train station are also on lockdown, according to NOS. Three trauma helicopters were called to the scene and police have appealed for the public to keep the roads clear for emergency services. A witness, Jimmy de Koster, told RTV Utrecht he saw a woman lying on the ground shouting: "I didn't do anything." Four men rushed towards her in an attempt to drag her to safety, but a gunman opened fire again, forcing them to take cover, he said.  It was not immediately clear if it was a lone attacker or if it was a coordinated attack involving more than one gunman. Local news outlet AD said police were looking into other reported shootings at nearby locations and whether or not they are linked.  Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte said the Government and the country's anti-terrorism coordinator were holding a "crisis meeting" in the aftermath of the shooting. Police forces and emergency services stand at the 24 Oktoberplace in Utrecht Credit: Robin Van Lonkhuijsen/AFP He said the situation was "very worrying", and security was tightened at The Hague. Schools in the area have been told to keep their doors closed. Mayor of Utrecht Jan van Zanen said: "Shortly before noon a shooting took place on a tram in Utrecht around 24 Octoberplein.  A horrible and radical incident in which victims have fallen.  My thoughts are with them and their loved ones. "I am in close contact with the police and the public prosecutor... I can confirm that the police and the public prosecutor are currently looking for the person responsible for this incident. "The most important thing at the moment is taking care of the wounded and investigating the circumstances of the incident. We do not exclude anything, not even a terrorist attack." No arrests have been made.

NASA administrator Bridenstine wants everyone to know he still has faith in the SLS

NASA administrator Bridenstine wants everyone to know he still has faith in the SLSWell, that certainly didn't take long! Just a day after NASA administrator Jim Bridenstine alluded to the possibility of flying the new Orion crew capsule's first experimental trip around the Moon using a pair of commercial rockets instead of NASA's own Space Launch System which is still in development, he's issued a new statement assuring everyone that the SLS is still a major part of NASA's future.In a new memo sent to all NASA employees and contractors, Bridenstine clarifies his statement and reassures everyone that NASA still very much anticipates the SLS rocket platform to be its next big thing.The original plan was for NASA to have both the Orion spacecraft and the SLS rocket system ready to test by mid 2020. The two would pair up for Orion's first test flight around the Moon with no crew on board. It's become clear in recent months that while Orion will likely meet its launch window, the SLS is falling behind.A potential solution, Bridenstine said earlier this week, would be to use a pair of commercial rockets to send Orion into Earth orbit and then around the Moon. This left some questioning what the first run of the SLS hardware might be used for once it's completed."Our goal would be to test Orion in lunar orbit in 2020 and free up the first SLS for the launch of habitation or other hardware in 2021," the administrator explained in the memo. "This would get us back on schedule for a crewed lunar orbital mission in 2022 with the added bonus of a lunar destination for our astronauts."None of this is set in stone yet, of course, and NASA says it's going to take around two weeks to study the feasibility of shifting the timeline and using commercial rockets in place of the first SLS rocket hardware. We'll know whether NASA intends to move forward with the new plan soon.

Trump claims he urged Republicans to vote for making Mueller report public

Trump claims he urged Republicans to vote for making Mueller report publicPresident says it ‘will make us look good and doesn’t matter’, before returning to internecine spats with swipe at John McCain In a symbolic gesture, the House voted 420-0 in favor of releasing the conclusions of Robert Mueller’s investigation to the public. Photograph: Jonathan Ernst/Reuters Donald Trump claimed on Saturday to have “told” House Republicans to vote for the Mueller report to be made public, as they did on Friday, because it would “make us all look good and doesn’t matter”. Special counsel Robert Mueller is believed to be close to completing his investigation of Russian election interference, links between Trump aides and Moscow and possible obstruction of justice by the president. Democrats who control the House have pressed for the report to be released. Many observers have speculated that the attorney general, William Barr, a Trump appointee who before assuming the role was critical of Mueller’s work, will make good on his word and not do so. Justice department regulations say the report will remain confidential. The unanimous vote on Friday was symbolic, designed to increase pressure on Barr. The House judiciary chair, Jerrold Nadler, said the resolution was “critical because of the many questions and criticisms of the investigation raised by the president and his administration”. The top Republican on the judiciary committee, Doug Collins of Georgia, voted for the resolution but asked: “What happens when it comes back and none of this is true,[when it shows] the president did not do anything wrong? Then the meltdown will occur.” The White House ridiculed the resolution and Democratic efforts to have it passed by the Senate were rebuffed by the judiciary chair, Lindsey Graham, a close Trump ally. The president has repeatedly called the Mueller inquiry a “hoax” and a “witch-hunt”. On Saturday he again seemed to seek to undermine the gravity of Mueller’s work, tweeting: “On the recent non-binding vote (420-0) in Congress about releasing the Mueller Report, I told leadership to let all Republicans vote for transparency. Makes us all look good and doesn’t matter. Play along with the game!” That “game” has included leading Democrats speculating in the media about what they will do if the report is not released. Nadler and Adam Schiff, the chair of the House intelligence committee, have floated calling Mueller to testify or subpoenaing the report itself. Mueller, meanwhile, has jailed Trump’s former campaign chair Paul Manafort, Trump’s former lawyer Michael Cohen, and Trump’s former adviser George Papadopoulos, as well as two other people. Trump’s former national security adviser Michael Flynn and the former Trump deputy campaign chair Rick Gates have pleaded guilty and are co-operating with investigators. Close Trump ally Roger Stone is among people and entities, including a number of Russians, who have been charged with wrongdoing. Later on Saturday, Trump returned to Twitter to complain about an infamous “dossier” about his links to Russia which was compiled by a former British spy, Christopher Steele, and published by Buzzfeed in 2017. In doing so, he quoted a predecessor of Mueller as an independent investigator of a president and took a familiar swipe at John McCain, the Arizona senator and 2008 presidential candidate who died last year. Quoting “Ken Starr, Former Independent Counsel”, who led investigations into Bill Clinton, Trump wrote: “Spreading the fake and totally discredited Dossier ‘is unfortunately a very dark stain against John McCain.’” McCain gave the dossier to James Comey, the FBI director who was subsequently fired by Trump. The senator, Trump wrote in reference to a Republican failure to dismantle the Affordable Care Act which hinged on McCain’s vote, “had far worse ‘stains’ than this, including thumbs down on repeal and replace after years of campaigning to repeal and replace!” From the start of his run for the White House, Trump regularly attacked McCain, seeming to delight in the consternation it caused. He was not invited to the senator’s funeral.

Saudi crown prince approved 'intervention' against dissidents: reportMore than a year before the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, Saudi Arabia's powerful Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman approved a secret campaign to silence dissenters, The New York Times reported on Sunday. American officials referred to it as the Saudi Rapid Intervention Group, the Times said. At least some of the clandestine missions were carried out by members of the team that killed and dismembered Khashoggi in October at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, suggesting his murder was part of a wider campaign against dissidents, the report said, citing the US officials and associates of some Saudi victims.

Google’s upcoming Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL look stunning in these new renders

Google’s upcoming Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL look stunning in these new rendersThis is already shaping up to be a very exciting year for smartphone fans. Well, it would be more accurate to say that 2019 is shaping up to be an exciting year for Android smartphone fans. Apple's upcoming new iPhone 11 handsets are pretty much expected to be another round of "S" upgrades at this point. According to reports from the most accurate Apple insider on the planet, Apple's is sticking to the same notch design it introduced back in 2017 for this year's new iPhone models. They'll sport new cameras and some other new features along with performance upgrades, but the look will supposedly be about the same. Meanwhile, Android phone makers have finally decided to stop copying Apple -- for now, at least -- and come up with some exciting new designs of their own.Smartphone makers are trying all sorts of new ways to inch closer to all-screen smartphone designs. They're all stopgap solutions to tide us over while we wait for nifty new tech that allows cameras and other sensors to be hidden out of sight underneath a phone's display. In the meantime, companies are launching phones with pop-up cameras, slide-out cameras, and hole-punch cameras like the new Galaxy S10 line. It's that last design Google reportedly ended up choosing for its Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL, and now the company's supposed leaked designs for its Pixel 4 lineup have been mocked up in fantastic new renders.Last week, a leaked sketch was said to have revealed the design of Google's upcoming Pixel 4 XL flagship phone. The sketch seemed a bit, well, sketchy... but subsequent reports suggested that it might be accurate. Now, a graphic designer who goes by @PhoneDesigner on Twitter took the ball and ran with it, using that leak and other rumors to mock up Google's new Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL smartphones. In a word, the look stunning.https://twitter.com/PhoneDesigner/status/1106640786848911361https://twitter.com/PhoneDesigner/status/1106641399846498304https://twitter.com/PhoneDesigner/status/1106646117674958848Here's a closer look at a few of those images:As you can see, there are two slightly different designs Google is rumored to be using this year. The smaller Pixel 4 is said to have a single-lens rear camera along with a single-lens selfie camera. Meanwhile, the larger Pixel 4 XL is shown with a dual-lens selfie camera, and it's believed to be Google's first Pixel phone with a dual-lens rear camera. Both new handsets will reportedly make use of the new "hole-punch" camera design, where round or oblong holes are cut out of the screen to make room for front-facing camera lenses. It takes up less screen real estate than the traditional notch design Apple popularized with the iPhone X, so the results have higher screen-to-body ratios.Google's new Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL designs have yet to be confirmed, but Android fans are in for a real treat if these concept renders end up being accurate. Google has historically been way behind the times with its Pixel phone designs, but a Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL that looks like these phones would fit perfectly among other phones that will be released this year. Google isn't expected to launch its new Pixel 4 lineup until sometime in October, however, so we have quite a while to wait before the phones' designs are confirmed.
