French presidentâs offer seems calculated to appease Donald Trumpâs discontent with the current âbad dealâ on Iranâs nuclear programme
Emmanuel Macron has proposed negotiations on a ânew dealâ aimed at curbing Iranâs military power and regional activities, to exist alongside a three year-old agreement that restricts the countryâs nuclear programme.

Photographs from Sihanouk in the countryâs south west reveal locals living amid a staggering tide of plastic pollution
Looking down into the water that lies beneath the ramshackle houses of Sihanouk, Cambodia, it is hard to imagine that the sea is there at all.

Remains found near mausoleum destroyed after 1979 revolution, which deposed Pahlavi dynasty
A mummified body found near a shrine in Tehran could be of the early 20th-century Iranian monarch Reza Shah, a polarising figure whose reappearance would be problematic for the countryâs present Islamic leaders.
Local media have published conflicting reports about this weekâs discovery at Shah Abdol-Azim shrine, close to a former royal mausoleum south of the capital where the shah had been buried. Continue reading...
Prime minister reportedly discussed the plight of Raif Badawi, Saudi sentenced to 1,000 lashes, whose wife has asylum in Canada
Canadaâs prime minister, Justin Trudeau, expressed his âserious concernâ over the continued imprisonment of the Saudi blogger Raif Badawi to the kingdomâs King Salman bin Abdulaziz, his office said on Tuesday.
The 34-year-old prisoner, who ran a blog that promoted free speech and womenâs rights in Saudi Arabia, was arrested in 2012 and sentenced to 1,000 lashes and 10 years in jail for âinsulting Islamâ in a case that sparked an international outcry. Continue reading...
Jaime RodrĂguezâs grim suggestion for punishing those who steal from the public purse drew incredulty and mockery, then terrifying reality
When a Mexican presidential candidate proposed in a televised debate that public servants who steal should have their hands cut off, his comments were initially greeted with disbelief, and then mockery.
Hours later, however, there was a much grimmer reaction: drug cartel members dumped a dismembered corpse in the Pacific city of Acapulco with a sign saying that they were already enforcing the punishment. Continue reading...

Exclusive: panel told researcher Aleksandr Kogan that Facebookâs approach fell âfar below ethical expectationsâ
A Cambridge University ethics panel rejected research by the academic at the centre of the Facebook data harvesting scandal over the social networkâs âdeceptiveâ approach to its users privacy, newly released documents reveal.
A 2015 proposal by Aleksandr Kogan, a member of the universityâs psychology department, involved the personal data from 250,000 Facebook users and their 54 million friends that he had already gleaned via a personality quiz app in a commercial project funded by SCL, the parent company of Cambridge Analytica.

Sean Hannityâs real estate venture bought houses through a property dealer who was involved in a criminal conspiracy to fraudulently obtain foreclosed homes, according to records reviewed by the Guardian.
In 2012, a shell company linked to the Fox News host bought 11 homes in Georgia that had been purchased by the dealer, Jeff Brock, following foreclosures. Brock transferred the properties to corporate vehicles that sold them on to the Hannity-linked company at a profit. Continue reading...

EU security commissioner says new regulations may have to be brought in if tech firms fail to tackle issues voluntarily

The EU security commissioner, Julian King, said âshort-term, concreteâ plans needed to be in place before the elections, when voters in 27 EU member states will elect MEPs.

Law clamping down on people pushing services and trinkets aims to protect valuable but fragile tourism industry
For some tourists at Egyptâs renowned archeological sites, being hectored to buy pieces of parchment, a camel ride or an alabaster statue is all part of the experience.
But the harassment might become a thing of the past, after parliament approved a law allowing authorities to fine up to EGP10,000 (about ÂŁ405) anyone found to be pestering tourists âwith the intention of begging or promoting, offering or selling a good or serviceâ. Continue reading...
Inadequate support for Hong Kongâs ageing population means for some older citizens, scavenging and selling boxes and scrap is the only way to scrape by
Miss Wong, 65, scavenges the streets of Hong Kongâs Sheung Shui area in search of disused cardboard to sell to local recycling plants. She starts her day at 7am and often works until 9pm, seven days a week. For her efforts, she receives about HK$41 (ÂŁ3.60) per day.
Wong is one of an estimated thousand senior citizens nicknamed âcardboard granniesâ who collect and sell waste boxes and other scrap across nine of the poorest districts in the city. Continue reading...
âBicycle Dayâ on 19 April is the 75th anniversary of the day Albert Hofmann accidentally discovered LSD, changing his perceptions â and the cityâs future
Seventy-five years ago, the Swiss chemist Albert Hofmann experienced the worldâs first full-blown LSD trip on his way home from his lab in Basel. Hofmann had been researching the ergot fungus, hoping to develop a drug to treat fatigue. Among the compounds he was analysing was lysergic acid â LysergsĂ¤ure-Diethylamid in German, also known as LSD. On Friday 16 April 1943, Hofmann left the lab feeling a little dizzy: âI lay down and had these wonderful dreams â I saw every thought as an image,â he said in an interview for his 100th birthday. The chemist concluded that he had accidentally touched the substance, and was intrigued by its powerful effect.
Three days later, on 19 April, he returned to the lab and swallowed a tiny amount just to see what would happen: âAs it later turned out, it was five times too much and gave me a horror trip.â He asked an assistant to take him home by bicycle, and Basel transformed into a panorama of hellish and heavenly visions. The bike seemed to freeze to the spot; a friendly neighbour turned into an evil witch. Hours later, Hofmann felt wonderful. âLSD called me, I didnât seek it out,â he recalled. âIt came to me.â Continue reading...
For decades, Haifa has been Israelâs model of what a âmixedâ Jewish-Arab city could be. But as the countryâs 70th anniversary nears, the strain is showing
Ben-Gurion Boulevard climbs from the bustling port on Haifaâs Mediterranean shore up Mount Carmel towards the famous Bahai shrine, its gleaming golden dome surrounded by lush terraced gardens. On the south side of the palm-lined road, on a spring lunchtime, the Fattoush restaurant is packed with customers chatting noisily in Arabic and Hebrew over Levantine and fusion salads, cardamom-flavoured coffee and exquisite Palestinian knafeh desserts.
Fashionable eateries like Fattoush are one reason why Israelâs third largest city and its biggest âmixedâ one, as officially classified, is held up as a model of Jewish-Arab coexistence. Not everyone agrees with the concept, of course, and the âcâ word is often qualified, placed in inverted commas, or simply dismissed as propaganda. Official figures say Arabs make up 14% of Haifaâs 280,000-strong population; unofficial estimates are closer to 18%, swelled by students and commuters from nearby Galilee. Public spaces, at least, are open to all. And the ever-present Israeli-Palestinian conflict is, usually, softer-edged than elsewhere in the country. Continue reading...
Perth, Darwin, Adelaide, Melbourne, Brisbane, Hobart, Canberra and Sydney have Instagram presences as distinct as their characters
Australia is one of the most urbanised countries in the world, with a full 40% of its population living in either Melbourne or Sydney: large, sprawling, coastal cities with very different personalities. Factoring in the other state, territory and national capitals â Adelaide, Brisbane, Canberra, Hobart, Perth and Darwin â takes that share to two-thirds of the total population of nearly 25 million.
Each of these cities has its own character, typically a result of its geography or weather. Thereâs Perth, the westernmost city, closer to Bali than the east coast. Canberra, the flat, planned federal capital of fake lakes and roundabouts. Melbourne, with its changeable weather. Harbour-centric Sydney. Hobart, Australiaâs second-oldest city. Brisbane, split by the river. Darwin, the largest city of the Northern Territory, changing character from wet season to dry. Post-industrial Adelaide. Continue reading...
As Finlandâs government calls time on a bold experiment in giving citizens cash, can others still attempt such utopian schemes?
When the Finnish government embarked on a trial of basic income it was lauded as bold, evidence-focused and innovative. The country became something of a standard bearer in a worldwide push towards basic income projects. In failing to commit to widening the scope of the trial in 2019 beyond its current group, however, that reputation is under threat.
Universal basic income (UBI) in its purest form is a payment that every citizen receives on a regular basis, without condition and as of right, in and out of work. Universal credit is paid on a household basis, is means tested and conditional, for example on recipients proving that they are actively searching for and accepting offers of work. The Finnish trial is not universal, as only 2,000 unemployed people were selected for it, but it is a basic income. Continue reading...
25 April 1986: Her death yesterday came two months short of her 90th birthday and only eight months before the 50th anniversary of King Edward VIIIâs abdication to marry her
The Duchess of Windsor, who shook the British monarchy and inspired the childrenâs playground song, âHark the herald angels sing, Mrs Simpsonâs pinched our king,â will be buried privately on Tuesday beside the husband who gave up a throne and empire for her.
Her death yesterday came two months short of her 90th birthday and only eight months before the 50th anniversary of King Edward VIIIâs abdication to marry her. Continue reading...
Who would have thought the Anzac Day opening of a new Monash museum at Villers-Bretonneux in France would turn into a diplomatic incident?
â˘ Support our independent journalism with a monthly or one-off contribution
Those damn French never could be trusted. The opening of the Monash Centre at Villers-Bretonneux was supposed to mark a century of amity between our two peoples yet the French prime minister, Ădouard Philippe, delivered a speech that blew Malcolm Turnbullâs to smithereens.
A lot of words have been shed on the western front. This is a place of blood and poetry. A national leader opening a new museum commemorating these battles has to have something to say. Continue reading...
Humanitarian chief and special envoy warn of potential for a humanitarian catastrophe
The UNâs two most senior Syria experts have warned of an Aleppo-style humanitarian catastrophe in Idlib as an EU donor conference aimed to raise up to $6bn (ÂŁ4bn)to help Syrians displaced both inside and outside the country.
Idlib is the last major territory still in rebel hands. It is partly held by Hayâat Tahrir al-Sham, a jihadi group that Russia and the Syrian government regard as a legitimate target in an area where civilians and fighters continue to pour in as part of evacuation deals in other parts of the country.

The ban comes with the worldâs stiffest fines and some businesses are struggling to find affordable alternatives, but in Nairobiâs shanty towns the clean-up is changing lives
Waterways are clearer, the food chain is less contaminated with plastic â and there are fewer âflying toiletsâ.

Relief for party and Trump after surprising Democratic special election victories in other Republican strongholds
Republicans held onto a deeply conservative Arizona congressional seat on Tuesday night in a special election race to replace an incumbent lawmaker who resigned amid sexual misconduct allegations.
The Associated Press called the race for Republican Debbie Lesko shortly after 8pm local time, when the results from the first batch of early votes showed she had a 9,000-vote lead over her Democratic opponent, Hiral Tiperneni. Continue reading...
Manaro volcano rumbling, spewing torrents of ash, gas and rocks from its crater
A landslide and flash flood on the Vanuatu island of Ambae is complicating evacuation efforts, with as many as 800 people now sheltering in emergency relief centres.
Ambae Island is home to 11,000 people, and for the second time in six months Manaro volcano on top of Mount Lombenben has started rumbling, spewing torrents of ash, gas and rocks from its crater. The debris is causing breathing and health problems, and threatening livelihoods by burying vegetable plots and crops. Continue reading...
For all the hysteria around Chinese activity in the Pacific Islands, the real point is that Australiaâs standing in the region has weakened
â˘ Sign up to receive the latest Australian opinion pieces every weekday
Australiaâs responsibility to the Pacific is unique â besides our historical ties with the UK, it is the only relationship specifically mentioned in the constitution. And for 10 of the more than dozen island nations in the region, unquestionably their most important bilateral relationship is with our country. Two things we often forget.
But for the last half decade or so there have been three very clear signs of a distinct step back in terms of Australiaâs engagement with the Pacific â all of which has materially changed the way we are viewed in the region we call home. Continue reading...
Britain and the EU are under fire for engaging with a nation with one of the worldâs worst human rights records â all in the name of stemming migration
When Amjed Farid was transferred to a small cell in Kober prison on 5 April, he had a sense of deja vu. âI suddenly realised it was the same one Iâd been in five years before,â he says. âIt brought back some unpleasant memories. I spent a month in solitary, and had hoped Iâd never have to see the place again.â
Farid was one of hundreds imprisoned in Sudan in January following peaceful protests against government austerity measures. While some were released after a few weeks, dozens were detained for nearly three months without charge, including British citizen Sidqi Kaballo. Many were kept in a bitterly cold security centre in Khartoum notorious for interrogations and torture, dubbed âthe Hotelâ by officials. Continue reading...
With the majority of rapes committed by someone known to the victim, the new law could drive offenders to murder to avoid detection
On Saturday Indiaâs government approved the death penalty for convicted rapists of girls under the age of 12, amid a groundswell of public outrage following the gang-rape and murder of an eight-year-old Muslim girl in Jammu and Kashmir state.
The shocking case involved a girl from the Bakarwal nomadic tribe, who was out grazing her horses when she was abducted, drugged and murdered after a week of torture and repeated rape. It led to a nationwide outcry for swifter justice. Continue reading...
Progress has been made but fire safety initiatives are soon to end, unions are being stifled and wages are still the lowest in the world
Five years ago, Asma Khatun pushed through the crowds that had formed around the Rana Plaza building, determined to see the destruction with her own eyes.
Deep cracks had appeared in the eight-storey building outside Dhaka the day before. That morning, workers who had been producing clothes sourced by major international brands had begged not to be sent inside. Managers would not relent. More than 2,000 people filed in. Some time before 9am, floors began to vanish and workers started falling. Continue reading...

Experts say suit alleging election conspiracy could inform the public about Trump and Russia, but some Democrats have voiced concern
By suing the Trump campaign, the Russian government and others, the Democratic National Committee has opened up a new front in a legal battle that is either a campaign for justice or a pitiable attempt to overturn the 2016 election result, depending on whom you ask.

North Korean leaderâs surprise freeze should be seen more as diplomatic manoeuvre than step towards giving up warheads
Rockets, satellites, missiles and atoms pepper the landscape in Pyongyang. They are the anchors of funfair rides, feature in extravagant floral tributes to the countryâs âdearâ and âsupremeâ leaders from the Kim dynasty, and appear on stamps, apartment buildings and school walls.
These celebrations of the countryâs weapons programme serve as a constant reminder to residents and visitors of how critical North Koreaâs nuclear project has been to its national identity and security. Continue reading...

A win for security, but real acid test of Pyongyangâs intentions is whether it will give up the weapons it has already built
North Korea has announced it will cease testing nuclear devices and missiles, and promised to shut down its primary nuclear test site at Punggye-ri. If this is genuine, it is a serious step forward, but we should greet it with cautious optimism.
We have been on the cusp of a breakthrough with North Korea before, only to be disappointed. There will be a lot of questions. But there is no need to be recalcitrantly hawkish about this. Within the limits of North Koreaâs strained credibility, this is a win for allied security. Continue reading...

The US president has treated his French counterpart to a colourful welcome at the White House. As the two leaders stood for a photo-op, Donald Trump said he and Emmanuel Macron had 'a very special relationship' before brushing away what he said was a 'little piece' of dandruff from Macron's jacket to 'make him perfect'. While the French president has tried to develop a close relationship with Trump since taking office last May, he has so far seen few tangible results on issues from Iran to climate politics.
