  2. British Prime Minister Theresa May arrives for the EU summit in Brussels, Belgium, December 14, 2017. REUTERS BRUSSELS: The European Union agreed on Friday to move Brexit talks onto trade and a transition pact but some leaders cautioned that the final year of divorce negotiations before Britain?s exit could be fraught with peril. EU leaders, who had offered British Prime Minister Theresa May a rare summit round of applause over dinner in Brussels the night before, took just 10 minutes to agree that she had made ?sufficient progress? on divorce terms last week and to give negotiators a mandate to move on to the main phase of talks. ?This is an important step on the road to delivering the smooth and orderly Brexit that people voted for in June of last year,? May said outside her home in Berkshire, southern England. ?There is still more to do but we?re well on the road to delivering a Brexit that will make Britain prosperous, strong and secure,? May said, reassuring her party?s ardent Brexit supporters that departure is certain on March 29, 2019. Summit chair Donald Tusk said the world?s biggest trading bloc would start ?exploratory contacts? with Britain on what London wants in a future trade relationship, as well as starting discussion on the immediate post-Brexit transition. A transition period is crucial for investors and businesses who fear that a ?cliff-edge? Brexit would disrupt trade flows and sow chaos through financial markets. The head of the EU executive, Jean-Claude Juncker, cast May as a ?tough, smart, polite and friendly negotiator? -- a polite nod to a woman facing ferocious and complex pressures at home, whose downfall Brussels fears would complicate talks further. Juncker, a veteran premier of Luxembourg, knows ?what it?s like to be a prime minister in trouble?, one EU official said. While there was a ?sigh of relief? at the summit table that Brexit talks can move forward, EU leaders said talks on a future free trade pact will not begin until after March -- a date underlined by ?guidelines? that set out how to proceed as Britain seeks to unravel more than 40 years of membership. The talks will be tough. ?We have made good progress, the second phase of talks can start,? German Chancellor Angela Merkel said. ?But this will mean even tougher work - that was clear today in the discussion - than we have experienced so far.? Sterling reversed gains and fell 0.8 percent on the day to $1.3327. Austrian Chancellor Christian Kern went further, saying even a primary school student could see that the ?first phase? deal on the Irish border would come back to haunt the talks because it was impossible for Britain to leave the bloc?s single market while avoiding a hard border on the island of Ireland. ?Our primary school students can see that there is a riddle to be solved,? the Austrian leader told reporters. In more formal language, leaders used the nine-point guidelines they agreed at the summit to support May?s call for a two-year transition out of the bloc, which aims to help British business and citizens adjust to life after the European Union. Both sides see it as looking pretty much like membership of the EU without a say in its rules, though there are also a host of issues that will again demonstrate the complexity of Brexit. Leaders reiterated their position that Britain cannot conclude a free-trade accord with the European Union until it has left and become a ?third country?. And it may take longer than the 15 months from now that some in London are hoping for. Noting a call from Britain?s Brexit Secretary David Davis for a ?Canada plus plus plus? deal that would go beyond the pact the EU signed with Ottawa, one senior EU official noted that last year?s agreement ran to 1,598 pages of legal text. ?Nine months on Brexit have produced 15 pages of non-legal text,? he said, adding that even launching trade talks in March would be ?quite ambitious?, let alone completing them in 2019. ?DIVERGENT OPINIONS? In coded language aimed at ensuring that Britain?s departure will not set a precedent for others and further undermine the bloc, leaders also agreed to ?ensure a balance of rights and obligations? during Britain?s transition period. The question of how Britain might continue to benefit from the EU?s free trade deals with other countries, such as Canada or Japan, has yet to be settled legally, EU officials said. Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar cautioned that there were ?quite divergent opinions? on how a new relationship and transition would look. EU officials are unsure exactly how far Britain should continue to receive the full, unfettered economic benefits of EU membership during a transition after it leaves, even if it loses political representation in Brussels. May, weakened after losing her Conservative Party?s majority in a June election, has so far carried her divided government and party with her as she negotiated the first phase of talks. But the next, more decisive phase is likely to lay bare the deep rifts among her top team of ministers over what Britain should become after Brexit. The Dutch, traditionally British allies, said May should explain to voters just what the cost of leaving the EU?s single market and customs union would mean for the economy. ?It means, for example, that the financial sector of London will have a considerable disadvantage to the position they have now,? Prime Minister Mark Rutte said.
  3. Two astronauts, from the US and Italy, and a Russian cosmonaut on Thursday landed in Kazakhstan after almost five months on the International Space Station, footage from the Russian space agency showed. American Randy Bresnik, Paolo Nespoli of Italy and Sergey Ryazanskiy of Russia landed on the Kazakh steppe at 2.37pm local time (0837 GMT) in a Soyuz MS-05 spacecraft. Over 139 days in space the three men "have supported hundreds of experiments in biology, biotechnology, physical science and Earth science aboard humanity?s only microgravity laboratory," NASA said in an earlier statement. Bresnik took part in several spacewalks to fix a robotic arm that latches onto incoming spaceships packed with supplies, while all three men were involved in a live video chat with Pope Francis from the space station. On Sunday Scott Tingle of NASA, Anton Shkaplerov of Roscosmos and Norishige Kanai of the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency will blast off from Kazakhstan's Baikonur cosmodrome to replace the returning astronauts and cosmonaut. The space travellers will join three other crew members currently on the ISS. In October Russia's space agency said a manned Soyuz rocket had suffered a partial loss of pressure as it returned to Earth from the ISS in April this year. The incident did not put the lives of the crew in danger, Roscosmos said, but it was the latest in the string of glitches to hit the country's space programme, which this month extended to a failed satellite launch. NASA stopped its own manned launches to the ISS in 2011 but recently moved to increase its crew complement aboard the ISS as the Russians cut theirs in a cost-saving measure announced last year. The ISS laboratory, a rare example of American and Russian international cooperation, has been orbiting Earth at about 28,000 kilometres per hour (17,000 miles per hour) since 1998.
  4. File MADRID: Three people, including two national police officers, were killed in a shooting at a country house in eastern Spain on Thursday, officials said. "Two civil guards and a civilian" died during the incident at an isolated home in a rural area of the Teruel province around 1700 GMT, a local official told AFP. Authorities did not confirm whether any arrest had been made and at 2000 GMT a police operation was continuing in the villages of Andorra and Albalate del Arzobispo.
  5. Reuters journalists Wa Lone (left) and Kyaw Soe Oo, who are based in Myanmar, pose for a picture at the Reuters office in Yangon, Myanmar December 11, 2017. Photo: Reuters 1 YANGON: Myanmar?s government said on Wednesday that police had arrested two Reuters journalists, Wa Lone and Kyaw Soe Oo. The reporters had been working on stories about a military crackdown on the Rohingya Muslim minority in Rakhine State that has caused almost 650,000 people to flee to neighbouring Bangladesh. The Ministry of Information said in a statement on its Facebook page that the journalists and two policemen face charges under the British colonial-era Official Secrets Act. The 1923 law carries a maximum prison sentence of 14 years. The reporters ?illegally acquired information with the intention to share it with foreign media,? said the statement, which was accompanied by a photo of the pair in handcuffs. It said they were detained at a police station on the outskirts of Yangon, the southeast Asian nation?s main city. Geo News reporters given death threats, forced to leave Myanmar A social media propaganda campaign had been started against Geo News reporters covering the Rohingya crisis in Myanmar Wa Lone and Kyaw Soe Oo went missing on Tuesday evening after they had been invited to meet police officials over dinner. Reuters? driver Myothant Tun dropped them off at Battalion 8?s compound at around 8pm and the two reporters and two police officers headed to a nearby restaurant. The journalists did not return to the car. Blatant attack The Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh say their exodus from the mainly Buddhist nation was triggered by a military counter-offensive in Rakhine state that the United Nations has branded ?a textbook example of ethnic cleansing?. ?Reuters reporters Wa Lone and Kyaw Soe Oo have been reporting on events of global importance in Myanmar, and we learned today that they have been arrested in connection with their work,? said Stephen J Adler, president and editor-in-chief of Reuters. ?We are outraged by this blatant attack on press freedom. We call for authorities to release them immediately,? he said. A spokesman for Myanmar leader Aung San Suu Kyi confirmed that the two journalists had been arrested. ?Not only your reporters, but also the policemen who were involved in that case,? spokesman Zaw Htay said. ?We will take action against those policemen and also the reporters.? In Washington, State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert emphasised that the agency was ?following this closely.? She said that US Ambassador Scot Marciel on Wednesday had a conversation with two government officials in Myanmar who seemed ?genuinely unaware? of the situation. ?We care about the safety and security of international reporters who are simply just trying to do their jobs. So we?re going to continue to try to stay on that,? Nauert said. The US embassy in Yangon said in a statement posted on its website on Wednesday it was ?deeply concerned by the highly irregular arrests of two Reuters reporters after they were invited to meet with police officials in Yangon last night?. ?For a democracy to succeed, journalists need to be able to do their jobs freely,? the embassy said. ?We urge the government to explain these arrests and allow immediate access to the journalists.? The European Union?s mission in Yangon also voiced concern. ?The EU delegation is closely following their case and we call on the Myanmar authorities to ensure the full protection of their rights,? it said in a statement. ?Media freedom is the foundation of any democracy.? The New York-based Committee to Protect Journalists called for the reporters? immediate and unconditional release. ?These arrests come amid a widening crackdown which is having a grave impact on the ability of journalists to cover a story of vital global importance,? said Shawn Crispin, CPJ?s senior Southeast Asia representative. Texted four words Wa Lone, who joined Reuters in July 2016, has covered a range of stories, including the flight of Rohingya refugees from Rakhine in 2016 and, in much larger numbers, this year. He has written about military land grabs and the killing of ruling party lawyer Ko Ni in January. This year he jointly won an honourable mention from the Society of Publishers in Asia for Reuters coverage of the Rakhine crisis in 2016. He previously worked for The Myanmar Times, where he covered Myanmar?s historic 2015 elections, and People?s Age, a local weekly newspaper, where his editor was Myanmar?s current Minister of Information Pe Myint. Kyaw Soe Oo, an ethnic Rakhine Buddhist from state capital Sittwe, has worked with Reuters since September. He has covered the impact of the Aug 25 attacks on police and army posts in the northern Rakhine, and reported from the central part of the state where local Buddhists have been enforcing segregation between Rohingya and Rakhine communities. He previously worked for Root Investigation Agency, a local news outlet focused on Rakhine issues. ?I have been arrest? were the four words that Wa Lone texted to Reuters Myanmar Bureau Chief Antoni Slodkowski on Tuesday evening to let him know what was happening. Very soon after that Wa Lone?s phone appeared to have been switched off. Over the next 24 hours, Reuters colleagues in Yangon filed a missing persons report, went to three police stations, and asked a series of government officials what had happened to the two reporters. They got no official information until Wednesday evening.

  10. US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson addresses a news conference during a meeting of OSCE Foreign Ministers in Vienna, Austria, December 7, 2017. REUTERS/Leonhard Foeger PARIS: US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said Friday that the relocation of the US embassy to Jerusalem would probably not take place for at least two years. "This is not something that is going to happen this year or probably not next year, but the president does want us to move in a very concrete and steadfast way to ensure the embassy is located in Jerusalem when we?re able to do so, at the earliest possible time," Tillerson said after talks in Paris with French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian. Listing the steps involved in moving the embassy from Tel Aviv, Tillerson said the US needed to acquire a site, develop plans, receive congressional authorization for the spending, "and then actually building the embassy". Tillerson reiterated that the move was not intended to prejudge the outcome of future peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians. "The president in his statement... did not indicate any final status for Jerusalem. "In fact, he was I think very clear that the final status, including the borders, would be left to the parties to negotiate and decide," he added. His remarks came as the fallout from US President Donald Trump?s decision to unilaterally recognise Jerusalem as Israel?s capital ? renouncing nearly seven decades of US foreign policy ? continued to reverberate, with Palestinians staging a "day of rage". Tillerson also met President Emmanuel Macron, who has joined a host of world leaders in condemning the move.

  14. TEHRAN: Two Iranian hikers were killed in an avalanche in western Iran and seven others are still missing and hope of finding them alive are fading, media reported on Friday. The hikers were among a group of 14 men and women from the city of Mashhad and a local guide who were trapped by the avalanche on Thursday on Oshtorankooh mountain, Tasnim news agency said. They were heading back from Oshtorankooh, one of the highest ranges in Zagros mountains and known as the Iranian Alps because of its high peaks which are snow-capped all year round. "Efforts are still underway to locate the seven missing hikers -- three women and four men," Reza Ariayi, head of a crisis management committee in western Lorestan province, told Tasnim. Ariayi said the missing "most probably" have died because of the freezing temperatures. Six hikers were found alive by the rescue teams, he said. The hikers were trying to reach a shelter when the avalanche struck, state news agency IRNA quoted Sarem Rezayi, director of the Red Crescent in Lorestan province, as saying. Oshtorankooh has numerous peaks with the highest, San Baran, at more than 4,000 metres (13,000 feet) above sea level.
  15. We just told you that the biggest wedding of the year is happening and revealed the exclusive details about the same. Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli are tying the knot on 12th December in Milan ALLEGEDLY and only close friends and family are invited. The rumours about their marriage began when both Virat and Anushka decided to take a break from their hectic work schedule during the same time in December. Everything was decided when the two families sat together 3 months ago and discussed how things should be done. © Instagram Talking to MensXP, a source close to the Indian Skipper said, “Everything was decided almost 3-4 months ago. The priest picked up the December wedding and they wanted to keep it low key. Both the families sat together and laid down the plan of how they want to do it.” The wedding is going to be a close and intimate affair and just a few people have been invited to be a part of this big day. As the guest list is small, not many have been invited from the cricket fraternity. © ViralBhayani The duo has just invited a couple of cricketers whom he is very close to. Revealing the names, the source disclosed, “Not many people have been invited, as it is a really small function. Just close ones are invited, Virat's childhood friends and few of our family members. From cricket fraternity, only Sachin and Yuvraj will be seen, if they make it to the wedding. And of course, Virat's coach Rajkumar Sharma who once taught him. There were others too but they can't make it for the day.” This is indeed the year of wedding for Indian cricketers as a lot of them are getting cleaned bowled for life and Virat is next in line. The duo is all set to get hitched (hopefully!) and we bet Virushka fans can't keep calm.

  20. BASTIA: One man was killed and two people were injured on Tuesday morning in a shooting at an airport on the French island of Corsica, emergency service workers told AFP. The shooting took place in a car park near the entrance of Bastia airport in the north of the Mediterranean island, leaving one man dead with a gunshot to the head, another with several bullet wounds and a third with minor injuries. Corsica was once plagued by separatist violence, but the main militant group seeking independence for Corsicans declared a ceasefire in 2014. About a dozen assassinations of public figures have taken place on the island in the last 20 years, while murders linked to gang violence and drug trafficking have also claimed lives. The motive for Tuesday's killings remains unclear and police are hunting for a getaway car used by the shooter. Corsicans went to the polls last Sunday to elect a new regional assembly, which saw a triumph for nationalists seeking greater autonomy for the mountainous island. A second round next Sunday is expected to see the nationalists confirm their victory and claim a mandate for greater local powers for Corsica, which is home to about 300,000 people and famed for being the birthplace of Napoleon. The nationalists have vowed not to mount a bid for independence from France in the short term, unlike their counterparts in Catalonia who have provoked a political crisis by seeking to break away from Spain.
