Short Brexit delay possible, but conditionalonald Tusk has said

short delay to Brexit is possible, but will be conditional on the House of Commons passing the Withdrawal Agreement.

“The question remains open as to the duration of such an extension,” Tusk, the President of the European Council, said.

Tusk said he spoke to Theresa May on the phone earlier this afternoon.

“May’s proposal of the 30 June, which has its merits, creates a series of questions of a leg

al and political nature,” he added. “Leaders will discuss this tomorrow.”1 hr agoDona

MPs surprised by “downright reckless” strategy, Starmer says
Labour’s Sha

dow Brexit Secretary Keir Starmer has opened the emergency debate into the Brexit delay by quoting Ther

esa May’s de facto deputy David Lidington, who said last week that if May’s divorce deal was not passed by parl

iament, seeking “a short and, critically, one-off extension would be downright reckless.”

Starmer says those statements led MPs to believe that May would reques

t a long extension if she hadn’t passed her plan — but May has asked for a delay only until June 30.

He adds that the confusion is symptomatic of May’s Brexit strategy to date — to “put parliament as far away as possible from the process.”

The site had more than 4,000 members, 97 of whom paid a $44.95 monthly fee to access extra features, such as the ability to replay certa

in live streams. Between November 2018 and this month, police said, the service brought in upwards of $6,000.

“There was a similar case in the past where illegal cameras were (secretly installed) and were consistently and secretly

watched, but this is the first time the police caught where videos were broadcast live on the internet,” police said.

South Korea has a serious problem with spy cameras and illicit filming. In 2017, more than

6,400 cases of illegal filming were reported to police compared to around 2,400 in 2012.

Last year, tens of thousands of women took to the streets of Seoul and other cities to p

rotest against the practice and demand action, under the slogan “My Life is Not Your Porn.”

New Mueller probe revelations explain Trump’s rage

President Donald Trump looks — and is acting — rattled and encircled by the Russia investigation. And a series of fresh d

isclosures on Tuesday show there is every reason for him to feel threatened by the vast shadow it is casting over his life, business and presidency.

Newly unsealed court documents detailing special counsel Robert Mueller’s activity reveal an investigative field

of breathtaking scope and a prosecutorial machine that ratcheted quickly up in mid-2017.

The search warrants targeting Trump’s ex-personal lawyer Michael Cohen offer a glimpse of the covert world of the probe. As

is often the case with Mueller, they give only a tantalizing hint of the wider, yet still hidden, puzzle.

In court filing, Robert Mueller’s team says it’s very busy this week

But such disclosures are almost never good news for Trump.

There is enough to explain from Tuesday’s reveal why the in

vestigation must be weighing on Trump’s spirits, and driving his angry Twitter outbursts.

The vast breadth of the investigation by various jurisdictions also could offer a rich seam for Democratic House chair

en should they eventually subpoena primary evidence uncovered by Mueller and other prosecutors.

Extra pilot averted disaster on previous Boeing 737 Max 8 flight

An off-duty pilot in the cockpit of a Boeing 737 Max 8 jet jumped in to help

crew disable a malfu

nctioning flight-control system as it experienced difficulties in October, according to Bloomberg.

The next day, with a different crew, the same plane crashed into the sea off Jakarta, killing all 189 people on board.

On doomed Lion Air Flight 610, pilots searched in a handbook f

or a way to stop the plane from nosediving, according to an exclusive Reuters report.

Reuters cites the information from three people with knowledge of the contents of the cockpit voice recorder that has never been made public.

Indonesia’s National Transportation Safety Committee (KNKT) has refused to comment to CNN on the content of the voice r

ecorder as the investigation is still ongoing. Boeing also refused to comment to CNN on the matter Wednesday.

Indonesian authorities found the cockpit voice recorder in the Java Sea on January 14 and said it could take up to a year to publish a full report into the crash.

The Ethiopian Minister of Transport said preliminary data

recovered from the black boxes of the crash in Ethiopia showed similarities to the Air Lion crash. But the investigation is ongoing.

Following the Ethiopian Airlines crash — the second crash of a 737 Max 8 plane in less than five months — countries and airlines around the world grounded their 737 Max planes.

Boeing insists that the 737 Max 8 is safe to fly.

“Safety is Boeing’s number one priority and we have full confidence in the safety of the Max,” Boeing said in a statement on March 12.

“We understand that regulatory agencies and customers have made d

ecisions that they believe are most appropriate for their home markets. It is also important to not

e that the Federal Aviation Administration is not mandating any further action at this time, and based on the i

nformation currently available, we do not have any basis to issue new guidance to operators.”

Trump weighs in on Conways’ marriage in escalation of feud

President Donald Trump escalated his public feud with the spouse of a top adviser Wednesda

y, attacking counselor to the president Kellyanne Conway’s husband George as “jealous” and a “husband from hell.”

“George Conway, often referred to as Mr. Kellyanne Conway by those who know him, is VERY jealous of his wife’s success & angry that

I, with her help, didn’t give him the job he so desperately wanted,” Trump tweeted, referring to a post at the Justi

ce Department. Conway, a conservative lawyer, withdrew from consideration for the role early in Trump’s presidency.

Trump continued, “I barely know him but just take a look, a stone cold LOSER & husband from hell!”

Wednesday’s tweet marks the first time Trump has publicly weighed in on the Conways’ marriage. While George Conway has

long been critical of Trump, attacks between the two ratcheted up this week when Conway questioned Trump’s men

tal health, tweeting screengrabs of the medical definitions of narcissistic personality disorder and antisocial pers

onality disorder from the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders.

“*All* Americans should be thinking seriously *now* about Trump’s mental condition and psychological state, inclu

ding and especially the media, Congress—and the Vice President and Cabinet,” he wrote Monday.

UN court increases Karadzic’s genocide sentence to

Former Bosnian Serb leader Radovan Karadzic’s sentence for genocide has been increas

ed by appeal judges at a UN court in the Hague, Netherlands, from 40 years to life imprisonment.

In 2016 the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia sentenced Kar

adzic to 40 years in prison for genocide over the 1995 Srebrenica massacre — in which more than 7,000 Bos

nian Muslim men and boys were executed by Bosnian Serb forces under his command — as well as other crimes such as persecu

tion, extermination, murder, deportation, inhumane acts, terror, unlawful attacks on civilians, and hostage-taking.

On Wednesday Judge Vagn Joensen said the original 40-year sentence did not reflect the “gravity” of Kar

adzic’s crimes, and “his responsibility for the largest and gravest set of crimes ever attributed to a single person at the ICTY.”

Cyclone Idai: Fears for 500,000 people as 90% of Mozambiqu

  Fears are growing for more than 500,000 people in the Mozambique city of Beira, after a

id agency officials warned that 90% of the area had been “destroyed” by Cyclone Idai.

  The cyclone slammed into the southeast African country as a high-end Category 2 storm with 175 kph (110 mph winds) at midn

ight Thursday, causing widespread devastation, before moving inland into Zimbabwe and Malawi.

  In an address on national radio Monday, Mozambique President Filipe Nyusi warned that while the official death toll

stood at 84, “everything indicates that we can have a record of more than 1,000 dead.”

  Nyusi described seeing “bodies floating” in the water after two rivers broke their banks “wiping out entire vil

lages ” and isolating others. “It’s a real humanitarian disaster of large proportions,” said Nyusi.

The Zimbabwe Information Ministry shared pictures of some pupils who had been res
