Fury sparked after 11-year-old Thai girl married to Malaysian man
The marriage of a Malaysian man with a 11-year-old Thai girl has sparked outrage in the Muslim majority country with one activist Sunday labelling the groom a "child predator". Malaysian Muslims below the age of 16 are allowed to marry if they obtain the permission of a religious court. But the country's women and families ministry said there was no record of religious authorities approving the union, which took place last month across the border in Thailand's largely Muslim far south. "Our officers have gone to the house and met the girl's mother. We are waiting for more reports before deciding on the next course of action," deputy prime minister Wan Azizah Wan Ismail was quoted as saying by the Sunday Star newspaper. The 41-year-old husband could be jailed for six months if he married without permission. Malaysian activists have called for law reform to end child marriage, which they said was widespread among the country's Muslim population. Some 16,000 Malaysian girls below the age of 15 are already married, advocates claim. "Marrying a 11-year-old girl is like the behaviour of a child predator or paedophile," child activist Syed Azmi Alhabshi said.  Mr Alhabshi said the man was a prosperous trader and already married to two women while the girl's parents were impoverished rubber farmers. Muslim men are allowed to marry up to four wives in Malaysia. The United Nations children's agency Unicef

Merkel seeks to placate German rebels on migration
German Chancellor Angela Merkel and her CDU party will discuss plans to reduce immigration Sunday as conservative rebels also meet, in key talks likely to determine the fate of her government. Merkel's government has been pushed to the brink over the migration issue after allowing more than one million asylum-seekers into Germany since 2015. The policy has provoked a backlash from Merkel's conservative CSU coalition partner with her Interior Minister Horst Seehofer, also the CSU chief, even threatening to unilaterally turn back migrants at the border.

Emerging after five hours of talks, Horst Seehofer, leader of Bavaria's Christian Social Union (CSU), told reporters he would remain in his post after a deal with Merkel's Christian Democrats (CDU) that he said would stem illegal immigration. "After intensive discussions between the CDU and CSU we have reached an agreement on how we can in future prevent illegal immigration on the border between Germany and Austria," Seehofer said as he left the CDU's Berlin headquarters.

North Korea appeals to China for economic help as it reopens radio channel with the South
North and South Korea reopened a maritime communication channel on Sunday, with vessels from the two countries making radio contact for the first time in a decade, South Korea's Defence Ministry said in a statement. A North Korean patrol boat responded immediately when the South Korean Navy contacted it via an international radio channel at 9 am Sunday in the western sea, normalizing the maritime communication channel for the first time in 10 years, according to the ministry. The move showed the two Koreas were "taking practical steps" to uphold agreements made on April 27 when their leaders decided to defuse military tensions in a gradual manner, an official from the ministry said. It was also on Sunday reported that Kim Jong-un, the North Korean leader, has appealed to China's Xi Jinping to help end sanctions against Pyongyang following his landmark summit with US President Donald Trump. Kim made the request during his third meeting with Mr Xi in Beijing last month, and the Chinese president promised to do his "utmost" to satisfy it, the Yomiuri Shimbun newspaper said. "We are feeling great pain due to economic sanctions. Now that we have concluded the US-North Korea summit in success, I want (China) to work toward early lifting of the sanctions," Kim reportedly told Mr Xi, according to the newspaper.

Wade, the landmark Supreme Court decision affirming that the constitutional right to privacy extends to a woman's decision to have an abortion.

Tesla's heavily-shorted shares rose as much as 6.4 percent to $364.78 in early trading, but sank after several analysts questioned whether Tesla would be able to sustain the Model 3 production momentum, which is crucial for the long-term financial health of the company.

Birth of a planet captured for first time as gas giant bigger than Jupiter swirls into existence
Even by astronomical standards it is a discovery that is out of this world. Scientists have for the first time witnessed the birth of a planet, a huge gas giant many times the size of Jupiter, swirling into existence 370 light years from Earth.  The theory of how gas planets form from a vortex of hydrogen and helium molecules captivated by their own gravity, is now widely accepted by scientists. But it has never been seen before, until now. Today scientists at the Max Planck Institute for Astronomy (MPIA) in Heidelberg and the SPHERE instrument consortium at the Very Large Telescope of the European Southern Observatory (ESO) in Chile, released a spectacular image of the birth  The planet, currently known as PDS 70b, is shown orbiting within a huge spinning ‘protoplanetary disc' of gas and dust, which proves it is continuing to accumulate matter, and so is not yet fully formed.  The newborn sits within a 5.4 million year old solar system, orbiting a star called PDS 70 at a distance of 1.8 billion miles.  The planet stands out clearly in the image, visible as a bright point to the right of the blackened centre. The dark region at the centre of the image is due to a coronagraph, a mask which blocks the blinding light of the central star and allows astronomers to detect the faint light from the planet. "For our study, we selected PDS 70, a star that was already suspected of having a young planet circling around it," says Miriam Keppler,

Classmates yearn for safe return of Thai boys trapped in cave
Classmates of 12 boys trapped in a flooded Thai cave spoke of their hopes for a miracle rescue Monday, as divers inched through thick mud and water towards an air pocket where the group is believed to be. The massive rescue effort has been hampered by heavy rains that flooded the Tham Luang cave in northern Thailand, blocking access to chambers where it is hoped the group will be found alive. Friends and teachers of the "Wild Boar" football team refused to give up hope of seeing the young players again.

By Karolos Grohmann MOSCOW (Reuters) - Hosts Russia beat Spain 4-3 on penalties thanks to two saves by their goalkeeper Igor Akinfeev on Sunday to advance to the World Cup quarter-finals and send thousands of ecstatic Russians to the streets to celebrate. The 32-year-old keeper saved Koke's and Iago Aspas' spot kicks after both teams had scored two apiece in Russia's first ever World Cup penalty shootout, to set up a last eight clash with either Denmark or Croatia, after a lacklustre 1-1 draw over 120 minutes. With Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev watching from the stands, Russia's qualification triggered a wave of enthusiasm for the host nation as thousands celebrated in the capital's iconic Red Square and beyond.

Angela Merkel on brink as interior minister Seehofer says he will resign over migrant deal
Germany's interior minister dramatically announced plans to resign on Sunday night, after a heated showdown with chancellor Angela Merkel over migration. Horst Seehofer, Germany's Interior Minister and leader of the Christian Social Union (CSU), said on Sunday evening that he wanted to resign from all offices, after hours of heated talks with his party.  Mr Seehofer said the conflict with Mrs Merkel over migration was affecting the "credibility" of his role as party leader. He also slammed the migration deal Mrs Merkel secured with her EU counterparts last week as "ineffective".  In the early hours of Monday morning, after talks had dragged on and missed several deadlines, Mr Seehofer said that he would make a final decision after one last conversation with Mrs Merkel. The meeting on Monday afternoon in Berlin will focus on migration and border control. "We'll have more talks today with the CDU in Berlin with the hope that we can come to an agreement. After that, then we will see," he said.  Mr Seehofer has been a fierce critic of Mrs Merkel and in particular her decision to open Germany's doors to over 1 million migrants in 2015. With that in mind his resignation may be welcome news to the chancellor. However it is yet to be seen who his replacement would be and many in his party share his tough stance on immigration.  Two weeks ago Mr Seehofer gave Mrs Merkel an ultimatum to find a European solution to irregular migration by this Sunday

Kim Jong-un 'blasts workers at factories for not working hard enough'
Kim Jong-un, the North Korean dictator, has lambasted workers at two textile factories for not working hard enough, failing to take care of their buildings and moaning about shortages of money and materials, according to state-run media. Mr Kim expressed his fury at the failing of workers at two factories in the city of Sinuiju, close to the border with China, the Korean Central News Agency reported on Monday.  At the Sinuiju Textile Mill, Mr Kim declared that the factory and its workers have supported the nation's light industry sector since it was established in the 1950s - before condemning its present-day workforce for failing to live up to that "proud tradition".  Instead of complaining about a lack of funds and equipment, the workers should put more effort into modernising their facilities by themselves. He added that the employees needed to increase their productivity. Kim Jong-Un visits the Sinuiju Chemical Fibre Mill Credit: AFP   On a subsequent visit to another nearby textile factory, Mr Kim criticised the staff for not making repairs to their crumbling buildings, saying the "precious" facilities looked more like a stable.  Management of the two facilities appear to have got off lightly, however, as Mr Kim is notorious for a short temper and draconian punishments for those that displease him.  Kim Jong-un inspects the Sinuiju Chemical Fibre Mill Credit: AFP In May 2015, the North Korean leader flew into a rage during a visit to the Taedonggang Terrapin Farm, which had been built on th

Leftist 'AMLO' sweeps to Mexican presidency
Anti-establishment leftist Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador swept to victory in Mexico's presidential election Sunday, in a political sea change driven by voters' anger over endemic corruption and brutal violence. According to exit polls, the sharp-tongued, silver-haired politician known as "AMLO" won by a large margin over his two main rivals, who both conceded defeat shortly after the polls closed -- laying to rest concerns that a deeply divided country could face prolonged uncertainty over the winner. "I recognize his victory and express my congratulations, and I wish him the greatest of success, for the good of Mexico," said runner-up Ricardo Anaya, who ran for a coalition led by his conservative National Action Party (PAN).
