Volodymyr Zelenskiy is hot favourite to triumph in Sundayâs presidential election
Latest polling in Ukraine suggests that the actor and comedian Volodymyr Zelenskiy, who has eschewed traditional political campaigning and given little insight into his policy positions, is set to win a crushing victory in Sundayâs presidential election.
Zelenskiy is known for his television series Servant of the People in which he plays a history teacher who wins a shock victory in presidential elections. He is now odds-on to pull off the feat in real life, after capitalising on widespread disappointment with the incumbent, Petro Poroshenko, who won elections in 2014 after the Maidan revolution kicked out the previous government.
Move by Islamic authorities condemned as attempt to âintimidate women activistsâ
Three women in Malaysia who held an event discussing their decision to stop wearing the hijab are being investigated by Malaysian Islamic authorities.
The event, hosted over the weekend at the Gerakbudaya bookshop in the Petaling Jaya area, was held to mark the launch of Unveiling Choice, a book documenting the author and activist Maryam Leeâs decision to stop wearing the hijab.
As hundreds of firefighters in ceremonial uniform marched through the gates of the French presidential palace to receive personal thanks from Emmanuel Macron for saving the structure of Notre Dame Cathedral, crowds gathered outside to cheer and clap.
Many of those applauding had watched horrified from Paris streets earlier this week as over 500 firefighters worked through the night to put out the fire and prevent an even worse disaster than the fallen spire and destroyed roof. Since then, there has been an outpouring of gratitude towards firefighters, with people taking chocolates and flowers to fire stations across the city, seeking to shake officersâ hands.
DNA research adds to evidence soldiers heading east struck up relationships with locals
Crusader armies were made up of people from remarkably genetically diverse backgrounds, hailing not just from western Europe but also much further east, according to a new study that gives unprecedented insight into the fightersâ lives.
The Crusades to the Holy Land were spread over two centuries, with many Europeans heading east to fight, and others turning up to trade.
News that the company had insecurely stored passwords came on the same day as the release of Robert Muellerâs long-awaited report
Facebook chose one of the busiest news days in American politics this year to admit that millions more Instagram users were affected by a security lapse than it had previously disclosed.
At 10 am ET on Thursday, as the attorney general, William Barr, wrapped up his news conference on the release of the report of the special counsel, Robert Mueller, Facebook updated a 21 March blogpost, which revealed it had mistakenly stored the passwords of hundreds of millions of users unencrypted, to include a sentence admitting that millions more Instagram accounts had been affected.
UN says arrest and detention of Moncef Kartas violates diplomatic immunity
A UN-appointed expert on breaches of the Libyan arms embargo has been arrested and kept in a Tunisian jail for nearly a month.
Moncef Kartas, a Tunisian-German dual national, was arrested on 26 March. He is one of six UN experts appointed to investigate breaches of the UN-imposed embargo on arms to Libya first introduced in 2011. The UN says his detention is a violation of his diplomatic immunity.
Flexible screen failed on several ÂŁ1,800 tester devices in run-up to public release
The screen at the heart of Samsungâs new Galaxy Fold phone, which literally folds in half, has been failing in testersâ hands within days, prompting concerns about the durability of the ÂŁ1,800 device.
The company distributed the device to publications across the US on Monday before its release to the public on 26 April. But within two days testers were reporting that the all-important central flexible screen started to break under normal use.

Other schools look to follow after TĂ ber school takes out one-third of its collection, deeming the books âhighly stereotypical and sexistâ
Several schools across Barcelona are considering purging their libraries of stereotypical and sexist childrenâs books, after one removed around 200 titles, including Little Red Riding Hood and the story of the legend of Saint George, from its library.
The TĂ ber schoolâs infant library of around 600 childrenâs books was reviewed by the AssociaciĂł Espai i Lleure as part of a project that aims to highlight hidden sexist content. The group reviewed the characters in each book, whether or not they speak and what roles they perform, finding that 30% of the books were highly sexist, had strong stereotypes and were, in its opinion, of no pedagogical value.
With teenage girls a particular target of street harassment, Farah Benis is on a mission to document incidents and raise awareness
CatcallsofLdn is an Instagram account that raises awareness about street harassment using chalk art. Inspired by and working with @catcallsofnyc, founder Farah Benis collects submissions from the public then chalks them onto the pavement in the place where they happened. The hope is that chalking, documenting and sharing images of the words will help to raise awareness of street harassment and ultimately prevent it.
72% of submissions are from under 17-year-olds, 60% of those were wearing school uniforms and 100% of the perpetrators were adult men

âThis is not just an airport. Itâs a monument to victory,â is how posters around the terminal describe Istanbulâs colossal new airport.
That remains to be seen. After starting on Friday, Turkish Airlines will have a 45-hour window to complete one of the most complex logistical projects in history, as it switches its entire operation to the new Istanbul airport from its existing hub at AtatĂŒrk international airport.

It is no surprise that the document bears little resemblance to that portrayed by the Trump administration. It must not be allowed to draw a line beneath it
Finally we have heard from Robert Mueller himself. For two years, in the face of immense presidential pressure and outright attempts to have him fired, the special counsel and his team quietly pursued their mammoth inquiry. He remained silent too as the Trump administration falsely claimed his 400-plus page report as a vindication. Now it is â to a large degree â in the public domain. But this is not the last word.
Its length, and the complexity of matters with which it deals, means that it will take time to fully digest the document and understand its ramifications. The politicians and journalists frenziedly combing through it in Washington have already found plenty of meat. The bar had been set high by the shocking facts that had already emerged about Russiaâs role in the 2016 election and the actions of Donald Trump and his campaign. There is no single new killer fact which transforms the picture and is likely to sway a dedicated Trump supporter. But the report is nonetheless damning, and a vital and necessary addition to the body of evidence already amassed. Mr Muellerâs role allowed him to access evidence and press individuals as the media cannot. The reportâs status as a formal, official record of events is also crucial, even if it will inevitably be assailed as partisan.
Beresheet spacecraft hit moonâs surface at 500km per hour and would have been destroyed on impact
Israelâs Beresheet lander has failed in its attempt to become the first privately funded mission to land on the moon. The 150kg spacecraft began its descent on 11 April but ran into difficulties about 14km above the lunar surface, when the main engine shut down unexpectedly. The spacecraft was still six minutes before the scheduled landing time. Telemetry signals received from the lander made it clear that although the engine restarted, the spacecraft hit the moonâs surface at a speed of 500km per hour. At this speed, the spacecraft would have been destroyed on impact.
Lawyer for Patrick Karegeyaâs family says South African police failures point to abuse of process
The family of the murdered former Rwandan intelligence chief Patrick Karegeya celebrated on Thursday after a South African magistrate said the identities of four suspects were known and police said they were âdirectly linkedâ to Rwandaâs government.
At the end of a 20-minute inquest in Johannesburg, the magistrate Mashiane Mathopa said there was a prima facie case to answer and he was sending the matter to South Africaâs National Prosecuting Authority (NPA). Karegeya was found strangled in a Johannesburg hotel room in January 2014.
The eight Congressional leaders who are briefed on classified intelligence matters will be allowed access to the less redacted Mueller report in an in-camera review on Monday, with the order that the redacted portions remain confidential.
President Trump continues to double down on his defense that the Mueller probe was all a witch hunt.

Former Peruvian president dogged by corruption claims, who was a divisive force in his countryâs politics
Alan GarcĂa, who has taken his own life aged 69, was a dominant, if divisive, figure in Peruvian politics for more than 30 years, during which he was twice democratically elected as president. His first stint in office, during which parts of the economy threatened to run out of control, was from 1985 to 1989. He then spent a decade out of power, for the most part in foreign exile, before re-election in 2006. During his second presidency GarcĂa oversaw a more economically stable era until departing in 2011, but later was dogged by allegations that he had taken bribes while in office.
President says he has won a second term, defeating challenger Prabowo Subianto
The Indonesian president, Joko Widodo, has announced he has won re-election after receiving an estimated 54% of the vote, backtracking on his promise to wait for official results after his challenger made improbable claims of victory.
Widodo, after meeting with parties in his coalition, told reporters the leaders of Malaysia, Singapore, Turkey and other countries had congratulated him on securing a second term.
Nusrat Jahan Rafi was doused with kerosene and burned at her school, dying 10 days later of her injuries
A teenage Bangladeshi girl who reported being sexually harassed has died after being set on fire at school. Police and school authorities had ignored her complaints.
The murder of 19-year-old Nusrat Jahan Rafi, who was doused with kerosene and set on fire at her school in Feni on 6 April, followed her allegations of sexual harassment against her headteacher two weeks before. Nusrat suffered 80% burns to her body and died 10 days later from her injuries.
Azizaâs story reflects the growing number of violent public assaults on women deemed to be in breach of sharia law in Afghanistan
One of four women who was recently subjected to a brutal public lashing by armed Taliban fighters in Afghanistan has spoken about her experience, amid an increase of violent punishments given to those violating its strict interpretation of religious law.
Aziza, who like many other Afghan women only uses one name, was rounded up by the Talibanâs shadow police for being out of her house without her husband and not being fully veiled. She was beaten so badly she lost consciousness.
As a voluntary agreement is struck for forces to withdraw from the port city, two friends recount the horror of conflict in their neighbourhood in Yemen
Friends Majed Al-Wahidi and Ali Al-Zazai remember the constant buzzing of drones overhead in Hodeidah on 18 November last year.
Majed, a teacher and father of six daughters, had left Aliâs house to return to his home nearby, but went back because he had forgotten his lighter. It was about 5pm and Majedâs daughters were in their bedroom, having taken a break from studying to pray in their modest, corrugated iron-covered home.
Judge rules that stopping access to safe housing, counselling and financial assistance after 45 days risks âirreparable harmâ
A high court judge has suspended a Home Office policy that cuts off after six weeks all statutory support to slavery victims in the UK, ruling that it risks causing âirreparable harm to very vulnerable individualsâ.
The Home Office must now immediately extend assistance to all slavery and trafficking victims requiring support in the UK, estimated to be about 600 people, over the next few months.
For all his bluster about being a master builder, Donald Trump really made his millions through branding. From chewy steaks to failing casinos, Trump has spent decades putting lucrative lipstick on pigs.
So when faced with a sprawling criminal investigation into how Russia worked to get him elected â and how he then repeatedly tried to obstruct the inquiry â the president devised a brutally effective public relations campaign.
Trump and Republicans are using Omar to drive a wedge within the Democratic party and âfoment hatred of Muslim Americansâ
When Ilhan Omar became one of the first two Muslim women elected to Congress in November, the American Muslim community saw her victory as a symbolic rejoinder to Donald Trump.
Omarâs remarkable journey â from a Somali refugee camp to the Minnesota state legislature and the hallways of the US Capitol â stood out among a historically diverse class of freshman lawmakers. The sight of Omarâs hijab on the House floor, made possible only by a rules change that for the first time in 181 years allowed religious headwear inside the chamber, reinforced the immediacy of her impact.
On Thursday, the US justice department is expected to release a redacted version of special counsel Robert Muellerâs long-awaited report on Russian election tampering and the Donald Trump campaign to the public. The attorney general, William Barr, has announced a press conference at the justice department at 9.30am to discuss it.
French president postponed his address to the nation but the stakes have been raised
The broadcast was ready to go. Emmanuel Macronâs address to the nation in response to months of protest and violence from the gilets jaunes (yellow vests) movement and the âgreat national debateâ they sparked had been recorded that afternoon and was due to go live at 8pm.
Running to 26 minutes, it was, said Le Monde, âa make-or-break moment for the presidency and for this president, confronted [âŠ] with one of the most serious social crises the country has known for 30 yearsâ.
US judiciary committee chair Jerry Nadler has said the special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia investigation report outlines 'disturbing evidence' that Donald Trump engaged in obstruction of justice.
Nadler also accused US attorney general William Barr of undermining his own department in order to protect the president. He said it was 'disingenuous and misleading' of Barr to say Trump is 'clear of wrongdoing'.
Barr is scheduled to testify before the committee on 2 May and Nadler has requested Mueller testify before the committee as well because 'we canât believe what Barr tells us'

The US president said on Thursday he was having a 'good day' after the release of the special counsel Robert Muellerâs report on the now-closed Russia investigation. The US attorney general, William Barr, told a news conference before the reportâs release that the investigation did not find Donald Trump or members of his campaign worked with Russia during the 2016 presidential election
The US attorney general, William Barr, has said the special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation did not find Donald Trump or members of his campaign worked with Russia during the 2016 presidential election. Addressing a news conference before the reportâs release, Barr said there were 10 episodes involving Trump that were scrutinised for possible obstruction of justice
Residents of a village in Russia have been stunned by the sight of a polar bear 700km from its usual habitat. The people of the far eastern Kamchatka Peninsula looked on as the bear searched for food. Russian media reported on Wednesday that the exhausted-looking animal apparently travelled from Chukotka to the village of Tilichiki, about 700km (434 miles) south. Environmentalists say the bear may have lost its sense of direction while drifting on an ice floe
Pete Buttigieg, the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, and Democratic presidential candidate, was heckled by a protester at a rally in Des Moines, Iowa. The person shouted: 'Remember Sodom and Gomorrah' â a reference to two biblical cities â to which Buttigieg responded: 'The condition of my soul is in the hands of God but the Iowa caucuses are up to you'
Notre Dame Cathedral was '15 to 30 minutes' away from complete destruction as firefighters battled to stop flames reaching its Gothic bell towers, French authorities have said. The blaze destroyed the roof and spire of the Parisian landmark. The French president, Emmanuel Macron, has said he wants to see the cathedral rebuilt 'more beautiful than before' within five years, but there are warnings that the repairs could take decades
