Based on real events, Kler has broken box office records and divided Catholic country
A film depicting Polish clerics as corrupt, drunken fornicators and paedophiles is smashing box office records in Poland, sparking controversy and encouraging hundreds of people to come forward with allegations of recent and historical abuse.
Based on real events, Kler (The Clergy), by the director Wojciech Smarzowski, which includes testimonies of survivors, features an alcoholic priest who encourages his lover to have an abortion, a priest accused of abusing a young boy, a senior cleric engaged in corruption and blackmail, and a grotesque, foul-mouthed archbishop cutting deals with politicians and mobsters, all operating with impunity against the backdrop of a passive and credulous society portrayed as complicit in the crimes being committed.
The company, which owns the discount chain Kmart, has filed for chapter 11 bankruptcy in New York as it struggles with a debt burden of $5.6bn (¬£4.3bn). It will shut another 142 stores by the end of the year, following 46 recently announced store closures. The company had 506 Sears stores and 360 Kmart stores in August.
Residents say ‚ÄėLantau Tomorrow Vision‚Äô, the city‚Äôs largest land reclamation project, is costly and will kill marine life
Thousands of Hong Kong residents protested at the weekend over a government plan to build artificial islands to deal with the city‚Äôs severe housing shortage.
Hong Kong leader Carrie Lam last week announced a plan to reclaim about 1,700 hectares (4,200 acres) from the ocean and build infrastructure and transportation links to create a major business district. The islands, which would be Hong Kong‚Äôs largest land reclamation project, would eventually house up to 1.1 million residents over the next few decades.

Two New Zealand women who were ordered to pay damages by an Israeli court for their role in Lorde cancelling a Tel Aviv concert have raised the sum through donations ‚Äď but plan to give the money to the Gaza Mental Health Foundation instead.
Last week an Israeli court ruled Justine Sachs and Nadia Abu-Shanab of New Zealand must pay damages to Israeli teenagers Shoshana Steinbach, Ayelet Wertzel and Ahuva Frogel totalling more than NZ$18,000 ($11,700) for writing a letter urging Lorde to cancel her gig, which she did.

The new Asian Town mall was designed to cater to Qatar‚Äôs roughly 2 million migrant workers ‚Äď but critics say it is simply a way to segregate them
At first glance, it is like any other entertainment complex in Qatar: a giant shopping mall, a multiplex cinema and an amphitheatre for musical shows. But there are no high-end boutiques, no women ‚Ä¶ and no Qataris.
Welcome to Asian Town, an entertainment and shopping venue in the heart of the largest labour camp in Qatar, on the outskirts of the capital, Doha. Each day, thousands of young men gather here from the workers‚Äô dormitories that stretch out into the desert for miles around, to enjoy mutton curries, Bollywood films or just a sanctuary from the searing heat.

Hamza Abbas is on trial charged with conspiring to plan Christmas Day terrorism attacks on Melbourne
Hamza Abbas could not be trusted to know the details of an alleged Christmas Day Melbourne terror plot, and jurors deciding his involvement might judge him the ‚Äúidiot brother‚ÄĚ rather than complicit, his lawyer says.

What worries Bill Gates most? The booming population of Africa looms over his foundation‚Äôs latest global survey. By the end of this century there will be 4 billion more people on Earth ‚Äď and 3 billion of these extra souls will be born in Africa. The challenge, he says, is that ‚ÄúAfrica must almost quadruple its agricultural productivity to feed itself. That‚Äôs very daunting.‚ÄĚ

In a country where one in four women have a child by 19, and health workers offering birth control have been met by men with machetes, confronting myths about contraception is vital
A woman lies on her back, a one-year-old straddling her. One hand is over her eyes, the other held out. A nurse gently inserts a small white strip of contraceptive implant into her upper arm while her baby plays on her. They beckon me in. Privacy hardly seems to be an issue here.
I am in a tent in Rwibale, in the Kyenjojo district of Uganda. We have driven for about five hours from Kampala to get here. It is a place that Prosper Kigumire, who is showing me around, describes as ‚Äúperi-rural‚ÄĚ. It seems rural enough, a village ‚Äď if that.

The CSU, the sister party of Angela Merkel‚Äôs CDU, has dominated Bavarian politics for six decades, winning absolute majorities in 12 of the past 13 elections. And it has not done a bad job: the well-heeled home state of BMW and Siemens has the highest employment and lowest crime rate in the country.
The archbishop of Constantinople has granted Ukraine‚Äôs wish for a church independent of Moscow
Donald Trump seems strangely in awe of Vladimir Putin. Theresa May‚Äôs attempts to face down the Kremlin after Salisbury have had limited impact. But has Putin finally met his match in Bartholomew I, the 270th archbishop of Constantinople-New Rome, ecumenical patriarch, and ‚Äúfirst among equals‚ÄĚ of the Eastern Orthodox church?
In the 2,000-year struggle between church and state, Barth-olomew chalked up a notable victory last week. Defying protests from the Kremlin and Russia‚Äôs clergy, the archbishop granted Ukraine‚Äôs wish to establish an independent church that will no longer answer, as it has since 1686, to the Moscow patriarchate. The decision was taken at a synod at Orthodox ‚Äúheadquarters‚ÄĚ in Istanbul, formerly Constantinople.
Rather than annoy a trading partner, the Tories turn a blind eye to the country‚Äôs excesses
Imagine how this government would have reacted if last weekend either Russia or Iran had abducted ‚Äď and in all likelihood murdered ‚Äď one of their dissident journalists within the sovereign territory of another country.
In fact, we do not need to imagine it. We need only look back five months to the faked assassination of the Russian journalist Arkady Babchenko on the streets of Kiev. It took the then foreign secretary, Boris Johnson, less than 24 hours to issue an official statement not only saying how appalled he was, but leaving no doubt that the Russian state was responsible and saying it must be held to account.
Pope Francis has made a saint of murdered Salvadoran archbishop √ďscar Romero, one of the most contentious Roman Catholic figures of the 20th century. In a ceremony before tens of thousands of people in St Peter‚Äôs Square, Francis declared Romero and Pope Paul VI saints along with five other lesser-known people.
People from across Germany have marched through Berlin to protest against racism, xenophobia and the far right in one of the country‚Äôs biggest rallies of recent years.
