Hundreds gather at Freetown mortuary to search for loved ones as UN evaluates risk of further landslides, after disaster that has so far claimed 400 lives
Hundreds have queued outside a mortuary in Freetown to search for their loved ones, following a mudslide on Monday that has claimed at least 400 lives.
A further 600 people are still unaccounted for, according to the Red Cross, which has continued to search for bodies buried in the debris. Recovery efforts have been hampered by the countryâs dangerous terrain, a lack of equipment and the sheer scale of the tragedy.
Raila Odingaâs decision will ease concerns about further violence after Uhuru Kenyatta declared winner by 1.4m votes
The Kenyan opposition leader Raila Odinga has said he will go to court over last weekâs presidential election results, ignoring calls by some election observers for him to concede defeat to President Uhuru Kenyatta.
Twenty-four people have died in violence since the election on 8 August. Odingaâs decision will ease concerns that he may call for demonstrations that could trigger further violence.
Washington-based fund says pursuit of growth at any cost risks sharp slowdown or financial crisis
Chinaâs credit-fuelled economic strategy has been branded as dangerous by the International Monetary Fund in a strongly-worded statement warning that its approach risks financial turmoil.
The IMF used its annual health check on the worldâs second biggest economy to stress that faster expansion in 2017 was coming at the cost of a jump in private sector debt and an increasing use of complex financial instruments.
Images of Vladimir Putin enjoying Siberian summer prompt imitations online â some more serious than others

Analysts say the latest statement by Kim Jong-un, signally a pause on Guam strike, gives the US a brief window to end the tense standoff
The latest statement by Kim Jong-un signalling a pause in Pyongyangâs war of words with Washington has given the US a window of a few days to negotiate a way of defusing a dangerous standoff, experts said on Tuesday.
Many longstanding observers of the North Korean regime expressed concern that the US could misinterpret the message that it sent on Monday when Kim said he would âwatch a little moreâ how the US acted in the region before deciding whether to go ahead with a plan to launch missiles over Japan aimed at the seas around the US territory of Guam.
Men given five to eight strokes of rattan cane and up to six and a half years in prison for âreprehensibleâ attack at stag party

McGowan says she has spoken with the office of minister Peter Dutton, who has explained the law. But she says Australia is too âlegalisticâ on this issue. âOf course its important to follow the rules â but to lose our heart, to lose our care? âŚ While the law is important, the heart is more importantâ
Zoo head says a wave of thefts in recent weeks had affected 10 species including a buffalo, which he said was cut up and sold
Venezuela authorities are investigating the theft of animals from a zoo in western state of Zulia that were likely snatched to be eaten, a further sign of hunger in a country struggling with chronic food shortages.
A police official said two collared peccaries, which are similar in appearance to boars, were stolen over the weekend from the Zulia Metropolitan Zoological Park in the sweltering city of Maracaibo near the Colombian border.
In foreword to memoir by survivor of clerical abuse, pope promises action but critics say he has not done enough to hold perpetrators to account
Pope Francis has branded sexual abuse of children by Roman Catholic priests a âmonstrosityâ and pledged action against perpetrators and bishops who protected them.
The pope made the comments in the foreword of a new book titled Father, I Forgive You: Abused But Not Broken, written by Swiss man Daniel Pittet, who was first raped by a priest when he was eight years old.
Statues installed on five buses with the support of the Seoul mayor â although use of public space to highlight this wartime atrocity has angered Japan
Buses serving several routes in central Seoul have acquired a new and highly controversial passenger: a barefoot âcomfort womanâ, wearing a traditional hanbok dress with her hands resting on her knees.
Appearing on the front seat of buses in the South Korean capital earlier this week, the statues were installed by the Dong-A Transit company as a potent reminder of an unresolved wartime atrocity whose roots lie in Japanâs 1910-1945 occupation of the Korean peninsula.
The Great Fire destroyed much of a city home to thousands of refugees, but once again Thessaloniki has become a place of multicultural amnesty
It was a spark from a homemade stove falling on a pile of straw at a refugeesâ hovel thatâs said to have instigated a new phase in the history of Thessaloniki, Greeceâs second city. A century ago, on 18 August 1917, the fire grew into an inferno that destroyed 9,500 houses, left 1 sq km of the city in cinders and 70,000 homeless.
As the centre of operations for allied forces in the Balkans during the first world war, Thessaloniki had no fire service and its water supply was requisitioned by foreign soldiers â which, along with the Vadaris wind, is why the Great Fire attained historic proportions.
Streets across the world are littered with gum, and although many cities have tried and failed to eradicate these sticky circles, Mexico City continues to wage this seemingly unwinnable war
Each night dozens of trucks carrying 15 people depart from Mexico Cityâs downtown to Francisco I Madero Avenue, the most famous pedestrian street in the capital. Armed with 90C vapour guns called Terminators, the group begins the laborious task of combing the street looking for small, black circles fastened to the ground.
It takes them three days, working in eight-hour shifts, to go through the 9,000 sq metre avenue. By the end, they have removed a total of 11,000 pieces of chewing gum.
In three years, 10,000 people were killed in JuĂĄrez â and a quarter of its houses abandoned to gangs. Can the cityâs young people reclaim those spaces for themselves?
At the age of 14, Alan has already been given the nickname El Botellas(Bottles) by his friends. The teenager dropped out of school and now drinks heavily, spending much of his time at a dilapidated home on the outskirts of the Mexico border city of Ciudad JuĂĄrez.
On a particularly hot Saturday afternoon, a former gang member turned community activist, Israel RĂos, appears at the house. âYou are too young for this!â he scolds. RĂos promises to give the assembled kids English classes, despite El Botellasâ insistence that he is not interested in learning.
Parks exclusively for women are popping up in Iranian cities, but critics are divided over whether this is just another ploy to keep them hidden in public
âI love to take off my headscarf,â says Laleh, 47, a hairdresser from Tehran. Sheâs sitting with a group of friends around one of the many picnic tables in the Motherâs Paradise, a park in the Iranian capital. Sheâs wearing a fringed mint-green T-shirt through which you can see her bare stomach. âWe can wear airy clothes here, and thatâs a freedom I really enjoy.â
Behind her, a group of women wearing T-shirts and skinny jeans are dancing to loud pop music. One of them climbs on top of a table and sways her hips to the rhythm of the music. A group of schoolgirls wearing white headscarves stop to watch.
Years before he found fame as a Magnum photographer, Elliott Erwitt was commissioned to document the city of Pittsburgh. Many of the images he took as a 22-year-old lay forgotten for decades, but have now been compiled in a book
The cultural capital of Kandy â controversial location for Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom â survived Sri Lankaâs civil war relatively intact. Now itâs thriving, thanks in no small part to an infamous relic: one of the Buddhaâs teeth
On a hill directly above Kandy there is a statue of Buddha in a seated posture, palms on his lap, signifying meditation. This is far from the most important shrine in this Buddhist-majority city, or indeed an unusual sight in Sri Lanka â the country is peppered with polished white or golden statues that are visible from afar, distinctive amid vegetation. Nonetheless, its proximity to Kandy makes it a good point from which to contemplate the city â and a highly Instagrammable one.
On a scorching spring afternoon, western tourists snapped photos under the indifferent eye of Buddhist monks, while one could hear distant religious chants mixed with the sounds of 90s European dance hits at a party â a scene that pretty much represents the vertiginous change happening in Sri Lanka which, less than a decade after the traumatic civil war ended, is experiencing a tourism boom.
Historic cities are buckling under the pressure. Could targeting repeat visitors be one way to make tourism less of a burden on people who live there year-round
Not all tourists count getting drunk before noon and desecrating a local monument or two as top priority for a break away, but those that do have come to represent the masses in the cities where they let loose.
Madrid has its scheme, while Muswell Hillâs never happened. Hilly cities from Rome to Rio will be watching as Lisbon starts e-bike hire
Wander around Lisbonâs city centre with its vertiginous cobbled streets, treacherous enough on foot in the rain, itâs hard to imagine cycling ever taking off. Some streets are so steep there are funiculars to help you scale them, and Lisboetas on bikes are a rare sight outside of summer.
Like many hilly cities around the world, Lisbon has a serious congestion problem, and its urban planners know that if more people were persuaded to cycle they could reap huge benefits in air quality, health and liveability.
Confederate symbols have become a crucible of racial tension in the US. White nationalists claim they are important monuments â but are they just a way to rewrite an ugly history and revive the battles of the past?
In St Paulâs memorial church in Charlottesville, Virginia, last Friday, just up the street from where white supremacists were gathering for a torchlight rally, Cornel West explained why African Americans saw the removal of Confederate monuments as so important.
On hearing that hundreds of white supremacists were gathered in a nearby park, the civil rights leader said, with a hint of weariness: âThese are chickens coming home to roost. We should have eliminated these statues a long time ago.
Investigation under Martin Moore-Bick seems designed to protect Whitehall from scrutiny, says head of Fire Brigades Union
The head of the Fire Brigades Union, whose members rushed to save Grenfell Tower residents, has criticised the failure to have the judge-led inquiry into the disaster look at its social and political context.
Matt Wrack said that under its current terms the investigation would fail to answer crucial questions. He said it seemed designed to protect Whitehall from scrutiny and would exacerbate the hurt felt by survivors and the families of those who died.
The Brexit position paper feels more like an early move in the blame game than a credible plan. But this is not a game, itâs deadly serious
Sweet nothings are lovely while theyâre being whispered in your ear. The problem is that a sweet nothing is still nothing. The British governmentâs long-awaited position paper on the Irish border after Brexit is really rather lovely. It tells Irish people of all political persuasions exactly what they want to hear: that there will be no physical border of any kind across the island and that free movement will go on as if nothing had happened. But behind all of these delightful reassurances, there is sweet FA.
A port city in the Tunisian capital might seem an innocuous setting for the celebration of a Christian tradition, yet the rekindling of the procession of the Assumption speaks of a culture that defies sectarianism
About 150 people are crowded into the 19th-century church of Saint Augustin and Saint FidĂ¨le in the Tunis suburb of La Goulette. More are gathered outside in the summer heat, behind the iron railings lining the narrow streets of Little Sicily, the neighbourhood where the fishing townâs Italian migrants once settled and established themselves.
The crowds have come to see the first procession of the Assumption to be staged in the city since the tradition died out in the early 60s. In its heyday, the flower-decked statue of the Virgin of Trapani would be carried through the packed streets of La Goulette to the harbour where, alongside the areaâs Muslim and Jewish population, priests would bless the fishing boats and their crews.
Drone footage taken on Wednesday silently shows the devastation wrought by the mudslides in Freetown, once-bustling capital of Sierra Leone. Rescuers are still searching for hundreds of missing people after the devastating mudslide and floods engulfed the capital and the surrounding areas on Monday
Animal rights group pays family $49,000 to settle lawsuit after it seized dog called Maya which belonged to nine-year-old
A family has settled a lawsuit against People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (Peta) after it took a girlâs unattended dog and put it down. The legal outcome ends an attempt to in effect put Peta on trial for euthanising hundreds of animals each year.
Wilber Zarate from Virginia had sued the group for taking his daughterâs chihuahua from a mobile home park on the stateâs eastern shore and euthanising it before the end of a required five-day grace period.
Sister of former PM publicly rejects labelling of advocates as âpolitically correct minorityâ, saying many âcome from the conservative side of politicsâ

Jeremy Corbynâs failure to condemn the authoritarianism of Nicolas Maduro is a missed opportunity for Labour to stand up for human rights, writes Jean Grugel
Jeremy Corbynâs failure to condemn the authoritarianism of Nicolas Maduro and the violence being inflicted on Venezuelans by the state (Report, 8 August) is a missed opportunity for Labour to stand up for human rights. The current crisis in Venezuela is not to do with anti-neoliberal or anti-austerity politics. It stems from a desire to hold on to power at all costs and a lack of respect for the democratic rights of citizens who think differently from the government. I write as a scholar of Latin American politics, a longstanding critic of neoliberalism and its consequences for the region, and someone generally supportive of the Latin American leftâs attempts to pioneer new forms of social and political inclusion. And as a member of the Labour party. I call on other Latin Americanists and Labour party members to clearly condemn Maduroâs violence and repression. Jean Grugel Professor of development politics, University of York
My mother-in-law, Liselotte Marshall, who has died aged 93, held German, US and British nationalities but felt most comfortable with the idea of being âstatelessâ, a description that suited her abhorrence of nationalism.
Born in Giessen, Germany, to Klara (nee Mayer) and Siegfried Rosenberg, who ran an apple-wine business, she spent most of her childhood in the Swiss Alps at a clinic in Leysin, near Montreux, where she was treated for bone tuberculosis from the age of three.
Critics allege that it is not just caste discrimination leading many Dalits in Nepal to turn away from Hindu beliefs and become Christians
Ram Maya Sunar had two miscarriages. Then she had a daughter, who died of pneumonia when she was one. âMy second child died from tuberculosis at just six months. Iâm still haunted by it,â Sunar says, sitting outside her concrete block hut in the village of Thakaldanda, in southern Nepalâs Makwanpur district.
More than 2,000 people estimated to be homeless as mudslide near Freetown submerges houses and turns streets into churning rivers
Hundreds of people have been killed in a mudslide near Sierra Leoneâs capital, Freetown.
A hillside in Regent, a mountainous town 15 miles east of Freetown, collapsed in the early hours of Monday morning after heavy rains, leaving hundreds of people trapped. Morgues in the capital have been overwhelmed with bodies, while relatives have been left to dig through the mud in search of remains.
Michael Gidney insists monitoring will ensure farmers are not worse off under Cocoa Life partnership with MondelÄz
The chief executive of the Fairtrade Foundation has defended a controversial partnership with Cadbury owner MondelÄz and the creation of a rival sustainable cocoa sourcing scheme.
In his first public comments since it was announced that Cadburyâs Green & Blackâs range is launching a new chocolate bar that is neither Fairtrade nor organic, Michael Gidney said it was important that consumers understood how large-scale ethical sourcing could help cocoa farmers - among the poorest in the world - and that the new model could be a template for the future.
Development secretary says âcatastrophic disasterâ is looming unless foreign donors follow UK lead to tackle disease that has infected half a million Yemenis
Humanitarian aid is âthe only hope Yemeni people have to surviveâ, said the UK development minister, Priti Patel. She warned Yemen is âon the brink of catastrophic disasterâ unless the international community follows Britainâs lead to stem the cholera epidemic.
Heavy rains, stagnant water and overflowing rubbish bins have stoked a second wave of the outbreak, which has so far swept across 90% of the country, infecting almost half a million people and killing 1,900 since it began in 2015.
The Republican party was left reeling after the president defended those who took part in a white supremacist rally. Hereâs a look at who said what
The Republican party is reeling after Donald Trump defended people who took part in a far-right rally with white supremacists and neo-Nazis.
The president insisted there was âblame on both sidesâ as he appeared to assert a moral equivalence between activists protesting racism and neo-Nazis carrying signs with swastikas and racial slurs during the deadly violence in Charlottesville, Virginia.
In 2016, Louise Vincent lost both her teenage daughter and her right leg. The leg had been injured in a car accident; after doctors failed to treat her pain effectively, she ultimately relapsed into opioid addiction and an infection festered.
Her daughter, Selena â who, like her mother, had diagnoses of both addiction and bipolar disorder â died at 19 of an opioid overdose while in rehab. Her mother had sent her away to try to protect her. But the program turned out to be so negligent that it had no overdose protocol or antidote on hand.
We break down how the White House, Breitbart News, Steve Bannon and Trumpâs cabinet are all connected to recent events in Charlottesville
Activists say so. A group of civil rights and faith leaders called on Donald Trump to directly disavow the white supremacists marching in Charlottesville on Saturday and fire White House chief strategist Steve Bannon, deputy assistant Sebastian Gorka and senior adviser Stephen Miller, whom they say âhave stoked hate and divisionâ.
The presidentâs refusal to properly condemn the attack in Charlottesville is consistent with past comments and a divisive campaign that stoked hatred
After the deadly violence involving white supremacists in Charlottesville, Virginia, and Donald Trumpâs failure to find the right response, Barack Obama stepped into the void with an assist from South Africaâs first black president, Nelson Mandela: âNo one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin or his background or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love. For love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.â
Trumpâs tepid response, so stark in contrast to his predecessorâs handling of tragedies such as the Sandy Hook school and Charleston church shootings, is arguably the low point of his short presidency to date. It is likely to dominate journalistsâ questions at his next public appearance â originally expected in Washington DC on Monday but now unlikely during his single day in the capital.
No previous US president of modern times would have failed to condemn his countryâs white nationalists. This one did
As George W Bushâs speechwriter put it this weekend, it is one of the âdifficult but primary dutiesâ of a political leader to speak for a nation in traumatic times. A space shuttle explodes, a school student goes on a shooting spree, a terrorist flies a plane into a building, a hurricane floods a city. When such things happen, Michael Gerson wrote in the Washington Post, âIt falls to the president to express something of the nationâs soul.â Yet if Donald Trumpâs words about the violent white extremist mobilisation in Virginia on Saturday â which an under-pressure White House was desperately trying to clarify on Sunday â are an expression of its soul, America may be on the road to perdition.
The original United States of America was built on white supremacy. The US constitution of 1787 treated black slaves as equivalent to three-fifths of a free white and gave no rights at all to Native Americans, who were regarded as belonging to their own nations. After the civil war, Jim Crow laws enforced segregation across the defeated south and comprehensively disfranchised African Americans for nearly a century. Writing Mein Kampf in the 1920s, Adolf Hitler praised Americaâs institutional racism as a model from which Nazi Germany could learn. Only in the postwar period, and then slowly and incompletely, was meaningful racial equality pursued by the land of the free.
The white supremacists Donald Trump is loath to criticise made cityâs plan to remove a Confederate statue their rallying point
Eight years ago, as the nationâs first black president took office, pundits debated whether Barack Obamaâs election marked the rise of a âpost-racial Americaâ.
On Saturday, hundreds of American neo-Nazis and white nationalists clashed with anti-fascist demonstrators in the streets of a liberal university town, sending the city into chaos as the governor declared a state of emergency. The white nationalists had planned to rally around a statue of the Confederate general Robert E Lee, which Charlottesville, Virginia, had decided to remove from a public park.
Internal document shows the âalt-rightâ Steve Bannon wing of the administrationâs fervent belief that America is at risk from âthe Oppositionâ â a cabal of bankers, globalists, the media and even Republican leaders
An extraordinary memo by a former national security official contains a list of Donald Trumpâs perceived enemies within, offering an insight into paranoia gripping the White House.
The author, Rich Higgins, was ousted last month by the national security adviser, HR McMaster. But the president reportedly saw the memo when it was passed to him by his son, Donald Trump Jr, and was said to be âfuriousâ at Higginsâs forced departure.
The US president refuses to dial down the war of words with Pyongyang despite his state department being in no fit state to deal with the crisis
It took more than seven months for the Trump administration to encounter its first real foreign crisis, and when it came, it was largely self-inflicted.
The challenge posed by the North Korean regimeâs nuclear weapons programme had been festering for more than a decade but it was Donald Trump who turned it into a global emergency with a few words. The president took his own staff unawares when he went off script on Tuesday to vow âfire and fury like the world has never seenâ if the Pyongyang regime made further threats against the US.
If youâre like me, you just might be in a constant state of anxiety thanks to the president threatening military action ... on Twitter.
No one can say we werenât warned. What Iâm struggling with is just how afraid we should be. When it feels like the country is in a constant state of political upheaval and controversy, itâs difficult to know if and when to panic. (Does âalwaysâ count?) Iâm sticking with my low-level anxiety as a baseline for now, but Iâd love some expert guidance on when to start building that basement shelter.
The âfire and furyâ option. In recent days the US national security adviser, HR McMaster, raised the prospect of âpreventative warâ as a policy option. The idea would be to administer a sudden hammer blow to North Korean (DPRK) military infrastructure that would substantially set back its ability to attack the US and could trigger a coup or a revolt. The downsides to this option are foreboding. The regime has missiles hidden all over the country, as well as 8,000 big guns trained largely at Seoul, 40 miles across the demilitarised zone. No first strike would come close to disarming Kim Jong-un completely and his retaliation would almost certainly involve mass civilian deaths.
Susan Bro, the mother of Heather Heyer, who was killed while participating in anti-fascist protests, urges mourners gathered inside the Paramount Theater on Wednesday not to let her daughterâs death be in vain. Bro says those responsible for Heyerâs death in Charlottesville have only served to magnify her cause
Baltimore removes its Confederate statues following a motion from the city council on Monday. The statues were removed on Tuesday night, prompted by the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, on Saturday, in which a civil rights activist was killed while demonstrating against a far-right demonstration that wanted to retain a statue of Robert E Lee
In a heated exchange with journalists on Tuesday, Donald Trump defended far-right protesters in Charlottesville, Virginia. He insisted that ânot all of those people were neo-Nazis, not all of those people were white supremacistsâ, pointing the finger also at what he called âthe alt-leftâ
Donald Trump reverted to blaming âboth sidesâ for violence at a far right rally in Charlottesville, Virginia. Having eventually denounced specific racist groups, the president used a press conference to once again spread blame for the weekendâs disorder to those he calls the âalt-leftâ. Violence and disorder between far-right and anti-fascist groups has been widespread across the US since his election as president
The US president denies his chief strategist is a racist before adding âweâll see what happensâ after being asked if he had confidence in him. âHeâs a good person and I think the press treats him frankly very unfairlyâ, Trump said at a news conference at Trump Tower in New York City.
Indian Independence Day is celebrated each year on 15 August, and this year marks 70 years since British India was split into two nations â Hindu-majority India and Muslim-majority Pakistan â and millions of people were uprooted in one of the largest mass migrations in history
Sierra Leonean emergency services and aid agencies are working to find victims of the heavy mudslides and flooding which devastated areas around the countryâs capital Freetown on Monday. Thousands of people are still missing
Susan Bro, the mother of Heather Heyer, says she is going to make her daughterâs death stand for the values she fought for. Heyer was one of the hundreds of protesters who had gathered in Charlottesville to demonstrate against a gathering of white supremacists when she was fatally struck by a car which ploughed into the counter-protesters
