US denies involvement in Syria missile strike which kills 12
A dozen pro-regime fighters were killed in an air strike on Syrian army positions a monitor said Thursday, claiming the attack was carried out by the US-led coalition, but the Pentagon denied the report. State media reported the overnight air raid in an area where both the regime and coalition have been battling holdout jihadists, but said it only caused material damage. The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which relies on a broad network of sources across Syria, said the strike had hit army positions south of Albu Kamal, a town on the border with Iraq. "At least three vehicles were destroyed by the strike," said Observatory chief Rami Abdel Rahman. He said the 12 pro-regime fighters killed were not Syrians, but he could not provide more details on their identity. A military source quoted by state news agency SANA said "some of our military positions between Albu Kamal and Hmeimeh were hit this morning in an aggression by American coalition warplanes". A United Nations Truce Supervision Organisation military observer uses binoculars near the border with Syria in the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights Credit: BAZ RATNER/Reuters The Pentagon denied the strikes were carried out by the coalition fighting the Islamic State group.

Kremlin accused over hoax call to Boris Johnson as Russian prankster discusses Putin and Salisbury poisoning
A prank call to Boris Johnson has triggered a diplomatic row after the Kremlin was accused of being behind the "desperate" stunt. The Foreign Secretary was caught out by a Russian prankster who kept him on the phone for 18 minutes by pretending to be the new Prime Minister of Armenia. Mr Johnson unwittingly discussed President Vladimir Putin and the poisoning of Sergei and Yulia Skripal before he rumbled the hoax and ended the call. The Foreign Office believes the pranksters, who have previously caught out other politicians, made the call with the blessing of the Kremlin to "save face" after it was shamed over the Salisbury attack. A recording of the phone call, which happened last week, was put online the day after Yulia Skripal made her first public statement about her poisoning, in which she said she had been the victim of an attempted assassination. It also came on the day that Dutch investigators revealed evidence that a Russian military missile shot down flight MH-17 over Ukraine in 2014. The pranksters had tried to contact the Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson by email days earlier, posing as the Armenian defence minister, but alert Ministry of Defence officials did not fall for the trick. Alexei Stolyarov and Vladimir Kuznetsov, who call themselves Lexus and Vovan, are the two men who made the call to Mr Johnson last week. Their previous victims include Sir Elton John, the Turkish premier Recep Tayyip

Australian grandmother Maria Exposto sentenced to death for drugs in Malaysia
An Australian grandmother who said she was tricked into carrying drugs into Malaysia after falling for an online romance scam was Thursday sentenced to death after an earlier acquittal was overturned, her lawyer said. Maria Elvira Pinto Exposto was arrested in December 2014 while in transit at Kuala Lumpur airport with 1.1 kilos (2.4 pounds) of crystal methamphetamine stitched into the compartment of a backpack she was carrying. The 54-year-old was cleared in December of trafficking after a High Court judge ruled she did not know she was transporting the drugs. But prosecutors challenged the decision and an appeals court overturned the acquittal Thursday, and found her guilty, her lawyer Muhammad Shafee Abdullah said. Anyone caught with at least 50 grams (1.75 ounces) of crystal meth is considered a trafficker in Muslim-majority Malaysia, and death by hanging is mandatory in the case of a conviction. FAQ | Methamphetamine Shafee slammed the ruling as "perverse" and said Exposto would make a final appeal to the country's top court. "I thought there was an overwhelming case for the defence. I am shocked with the decision," he said. The mother of four argued she did not know about the hidden stash of "ice". She said she had been fooled into carrying the bag after travelling to China to see someone she met online called "Captain Daniel Smith", who had claimed to be a US serviceman. After engaging in a long online romance, Exposto had travelled to Shanghai to se

Taiwan loses second ally in a month as Burkina Faso cuts ties
By Thiam Ndiaga and Jess Macy Yu OUAGADOUGOU/TAIPEI (Reuters) - Taiwan lost its second diplomatic ally in less than a month on Thursday after Burkina Faso said it had cut ties with the self-ruled island, following intense Chinese pressure on African countries to break with what it regards as a wayward province. Taiwan now has only one diplomatic ally left in Africa - the tiny kingdom of Swaziland - and formal relations with just 18 countries, many of them poor nations in Central America and the Pacific like Belize and Nauru. The Burkina foreign ministry's statement made no direct mention of China, but said "the evolution of the world and the socio-economic challenges of our country and region push us to reconsider our position".

Israel becomes first country to deploy 'world's most advanced' F-35 fighter jet amid doubts about funding in UK
Israel says it has become the first country in the world to carry out combat airstrikes with the new F-35 stealth fighter, the advanced warplane that will soon be used by Britain and other militaries around the world. The general did not say where the Israeli F-35s had been used but Israel has carried out repeated strikes in Syria in the last three years. It has also hit Hizbollah targets in southern Lebanon but much less frequently. Israel is also believed to be carrying out secret strikes against jihadists in the Sinai desert in coordination with the Egyptian military.  "We have performed the first operational F-35 strike in the world. We attacked twice in the Middle East using the F-35 - we are the first in the world to do so," Major General Amikam Norkin, the head of the Israeli air force, said in a briefing to foreign air force officers on Tuesday. Maj Gen Norkin's comments sparked widespread interest in military aviation circles worldwide. "The Israeli Air Force has proved once again its ability to pioneer combat testing of new aircraft," wrote the Aviationist, a military blog. The F-35s are being produced primarily for the US military but they will eventually be used by armed forces across the globe, including in Britain, Australia and Japan.  Britain has ordered 138 F-35s, which is not without its critics Credit: SAC Tim Laurence/MoD The UK

The First Step Act does not contain a broader overhaul favored by some moderate conservatives and progressives seeking changes to mandatory minimum sentencing laws that have kept many low-level offenders behind bars for decades.

Paris, May 1968 — a view from the barricades by Göksin Sipahioglu
Fifty years ago, as France exploded in mass protests, words scrawled on the walls of the Sorbonne summed up the revolutionary zeal of the time: "Run free, comrade, we've left the old world behind!"

Half a century later, the May 1968 demonstrations that brought millions of idealistic students and striking workers to the streets remain a watershed moment in France's cultural history.

Sexual liberation, artistic creativity and anti-capitalism were the order of the day. For those who were there, it was an unforgettable time.

The protests swept through a France that was still ruled by the strict conservatism of Gen. Charles de Gaulle, who was then president and banned the concerts of French rocker Johnny Hallyday for causing scenes of mass hysteria.

The aftershocks of the protests would be felt for years to come. (AFP)

Göksin Sipahioglu, a Turkish photojournalist and one of the father figures of photojournalism, covered news stories from the 1956 war in the Sinai Peninsula to Mao's revolution in China, the Cuban missile crisis, the 1972 Munich Olympics killings, and the Prague Spring and Soviet invasion of Czechoslovakia.

As a correspondent for the Turkish daily Hürriyet, he came to Paris to cover the May 1968 student uprising. While many photojournalists were on the streets, Göksin brought his curiosity, audacity, uncanny anticipation of events, and keen eye to the frontlines to freshly illuminate the quickly unfolding events. He remarked at the time:

"At first I did not understand what was going on. For hours on the first day of rioting the police allowed the students to do as they liked. The student

MH17: Plane shot down with Russian military missile launcher, investigators conclude
An international investigation has said the Russian military brought the missile that downed Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 into eastern Ukraine, leading to the tragedy that killed 298 people.  The Dutch-led Joint Investigation Team said last year the Buk 9M38 surface-to-air missile in question arrived from Russia and was fired from territory held by Russia-backed separatists.  But Thursday's press conference in the Netherlands for the first time implicated the Russian military, of which president Vladimir Putin is the commander in chief, in the catastrophe that shocked the world in July 2014.  Although the JIT did not say who pulled the trigger, the conclusion that the 53rd anti-aircraft brigade from Kursk, a unit of a "few hundred people," was operating the missile marks a step closer to naming the perpetrators.  Investigators said they were working toward a court case in the Netherlands against those who fired the Buk Telar missile system as well as higher-ups in their chain of command. They are reportedly focusing on 100 or so suspects.  Dutch police investigator Wilbert Paulissen next to the engine casing and thrust nozzile of the missile that brought down MH17 Credit: FRANCOIS LENOIR /Reuters The allegations come after Yulia Skripal said she was lucky to have survived an "attempted assassination" with a nerve agent in Salisbury, raising pressure on Russia three weeks before the start of the World Cup here.  The JIT said it had again requested information fr

When viewed from above, the sharply tapered nose expands towards muscular wheel arches to give the car what Ferrari calls "potency and agility." The inset headlights that are specific to this creation were designed to be as thin as possible, with the now-mandatory daytime running lights relocated for additional character and to add functionality to a slim bumper lip with more than a passing resemblance to the 308 GTB.

Texas considers 'red flag' law in wake of school shooting: governor
By Jon Herskovitz AUSTIN, Texas (Reuters) - Texas Governor Greg Abbott sought consensus on firearms in a second round of talks on preventing gun violence on campus on Wednesday and may look at "red flag laws" to keep guns out of the hands of people deemed by a judge to be danger to themselves or others. After last week's fatal shooting of 10 people in a Houston-area high school, Abbott invited the Texas State Rifle Association, affiliated with the National Rifle Association, and Texas Gun Sense, which favors tighter gun laws, to join him in Austin, the state capital. Alice Tripp, legislative director of the Texas State Rifle Association, told reporters after the meeting she found "no common ground" with groups at the session supporting tougher gun laws.

Plaque honoring Olympic soccer player Brandi Chastain couldn't look less like her
When will sculptors learn how to sculpt?  On Monday, soccer player Brandi Chastain was inducted into the Bay Area Sports Hall of Fame. This is well deserved as Chastain is a two-time Olympic gold medalist and a two-time World Cup champion. SEE ALSO: New Zealand female soccer players will be paid the same as men Unfortunately, though she is joining a group of notable and honored athletes, the plaque made in her honor is joining a league with a different sort of fame. Brandi Chastain has won a World Cup and gold medals but her greatest achievement is smiling graciously next to this whackass plaque pic.twitter.com/YzGda3g4vF — Ryan Mac (@RMac18) May 22, 2018 Here's a closer side-by-side to see the stark difference between plaque and athlete. Yeowch.  What'd Brandi Chastain do to deserve this?! pic.twitter.com/WE5Xz2NZZG — Cass Anderson (@casspa) May 22, 2018 Much like the infamous bust of Cristaino Ronaldo that was unveiled last year, Chastain's plaque bears very, very little resemblance to the actual athlete.  The Brandi Chastain plaque goes into the Art Fails Hall of Fame. pic.twitter.com/ZquxIyueYJ — Liam Martin (@LiamWBZ) May 22, 2018 The internet had a field day trying to find all the people the plaque looks like that are most definitely not Chastain. I could make a list of 50 people this plaque looks like and none of them are Brandi Chastain https://t.co/fiBp2kUj9A — Dan Wolken (@DanWolken) May 22, 2018 .

Beijing's South China Sea bombers fly in the face of protests
China's brazen landing of nuclear-capable bombers on an island in the disputed South China Sea is a bold power play to bolster its territorial claims while rivals are divided and the US distracted by North Korea, analysts say. China attracted diplomatic protests after long-range H-6K bombers carried out landing and takeoff drills at an unidentified island airstrip on Friday. The planes are believed to have landed on Woody Island, China's largest base in the Paracel Islands which is also claimed by Vietnam and Taiwan, according to Bonnie Glaser, a China expert at the Centre for Strategic and International Studies in Washington.
