Attack on Crimea college kills at least 17
Russia's Investigative Committee said the attack was carried out by 18-year-old student Vladislav Roslyakov, who was captured on security camera footage carrying a gun in the technical college in Kerch and whose body was later found with gunshot wounds. The Investigative Committee, which probes major incidents, had initially classified the attack as an act of terror, but later said it was investigating a mass murder after "this young man shot dead people in the college and then committed suicide," adding that all victims died of gunshot wounds. The attack had first been reported as an explosion, with Russia's National Anti-Terrorism Committee saying an "unidentified explosive device" had gone off.

These award-winning wildlife photos will remind you just how beautiful nature really is
In a world of screens, it's easy to forget that we actually live on a lush green planet filled with diverse wild life.  But the Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition is here to remind you that nature will forever be more impressive and beautiful than even the most advanced CGI.

Terrorist gunman storms Crimean college and detonates 'home-made bomb' in cafeteria, killing at least 18
At least 18 people have died and scores more injured Wednesday after an explosion went off at a polytechnic school in the Crimean town of Kerch. The Kremlin-appointed head of Crimea, Sergey Aksyonov, said the suspect was a 22-year-old student at the college. The suspect, identified in the Russian press as Vladislav Roslyakov, reportedly obtained a hunting license - allowing him to purchase hunting rifles and shotguns - early last month. A photo of Roslyakov weilding a rifle in a campus stairwell has made the rounds on social media. Reports suggest that, beside detonating an explosive in the school cafeteria, Roslyakov opened fire on fellow students and teachers. According to Aksyonov, the shooter killed himself during the attack. Russia's investigative committee has opened a criminal case under articles pertaining to terrorism. Law enforcement officers arrive at the scene of the bombing Credit: TASS In January, 15 students were injured when two teenagers attacked their peers at a school in Perm as part of a Columbine inspired attack. Crimea, formally recognized by the international community as part of Ukraine, has been under Russian control since 2014 following Moscow's annexation of the Black Sea Peninsula. Kerch is located on the eastern tip of Crimea, where a bridge to the Russian mainland recently opened.

Canada to pardon convictions for cannabis as country becomes second in the world to legalise drug
The Canadian government is ready to pardon those with a pot possession record of 30 grams or less as Canada became the second and largest country with a legal national marijuana marketplace on Wednesday. A senior government official said those with a record will be allowed to apply for a pardon. The official was not authorised to speak publicly ahead of Wednesday's announcement and spoke on condition of anonymity. On Wednesday, Canada became the second country after Uruguay to legalise so-called recreational marijuana. Tom Clarke, 43, shop opened at midnight in Newfoundland, Canada's easternmost province. "I am living my dream. Teenage Tom Clarke is loving what I am doing with my life right now," he said. Clarke has been dealing marijuana illegally in Canada for 30 years. He wrote in his high school yearbook that his dream was to open a cafe in Amsterdam, the Dutch city where people have legally smoked weed in coffee shops since the 1970s.

Person claimed ricin was in letter sent to Senator Collins home
A suspicious letter sent to the Maine home of Republican U.S. Senator Susan Collins had a note saying it contained the deadly poison ricin, the senator's office said on Tuesday, adding any affected areas had been cleared. No one was harmed in the incident that took place on Monday and Collins' office did not comment on whether the letter sent to Tom Daffron, the senator's husband, actually contained ricin. "Mr. Daffron, their dog, and parts of their home were quarantined while the crime lab undertook an analysis of the premises," Annie Clark, a spokeswoman for Collins said in a statement, adding that "the incident is the latest in a series of threats against Senator Collins, her loved ones, and her staff." Collins was thrust into the national spotlight this month when she became a key vote to confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court, delivering a major victory to President Donald Trump, who has now locked in a conservative majority on the court.

Donald Trump likens condemnation of Saudi Arabia over Khashoggi affair to criticism of Brett Kavanaugh
Donald Trump, the US president, has criticised the rapidly mounting global condemnation of Saudi Arabia after a key Senate ally accused the kingdom's crown prince of ordering the murder of missing journalist Jamal Khashoggi.   Lindsey Graham, the Republican senator and confidant of the US president, said he wanted to "sanction the hell out of Saudi Arabia" and pointed the finger at its crown prince, Mohammed bin Salman - known by his initials ‘MBS'. "Nothing happens in Saudi Arabia without MBS knowing it," Mr Graham said, adding the crown prince was a "wrecking ball". "He had [Mr Khashoggi] murdered in a consulate in Turkey and to expect me to ignore it - I feel used and abused," he said. In an interview with The Associated Press, Mr Trump compared the situation to the allegations of sexual assault leveled against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh during his confirmation hearing. "I think we have to find out what happened first," he said. "Here we go again with, you know, you're guilty until proven innocent. I don't like that. We just went through that with Justice Kavanaugh and he was innocent all the way as far as I'm concerned."

She urged both countries to reveal everything they know about Khashoggi's "disappearance and possible extra-judicial killing."

Turkish police searching for missing journalist found fresh coats of paint in Saudi consulate, Erdogan reveals
Turkish investigators searching the Saudi Arabian consulate where journalist Jamal Khashoggi went missing have found fresh coats of paint, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has said. Police and prosecutors on Monday inspected the consulate building in Istanbul for over eight hours and on Tuesday widened their search to include the Saudi consul's residence, a short distance away. Surveillance footage shows vehicles moving between the consulate and the consul's home after Mr Khashoggi's disappearance. Turkish officials believe Mr Khashoggi was killed and dismembered inside the consulate nearly two weeks ago. According to reports, the government has an audio recording which they have shared as evidence with Saudi Arabia and the US. "My hope is that we can reach conclusions that will give us a reasonable opinion as soon as possible, because the investigation is looking into many things such as toxic materials and those materials being removed by painting them over," Mr Erdogan told reporters in Ankara.

North Korea released a South Korean who illegally crossed the border into the North, South Korea's Unification Ministry said on Tuesday, as relations between the two sides show a steady thaw. A 60-year-old man who entered North Korea last month was repatriated through the truce village of Panmunjom in the demilitarized zone, the ministry said. All South Korean nationals are required to seek approval from the ministry before contacting North Koreans or traveling to the North.  The ministry said it was investigating how and why the man reached the North, thanking Pyongyang for returning him "from a humanitarian standpoint".

The theory is dubious - but blaming Jamal Khashoggi's death on a botched interrogation is a convenient way out
For the first 13 days of Jamal Khashoggi's disappearance, Saudi Arabia held fast to its official position: We had no involvement; he left the consulate safely; any suggestion we are responsible is a political smear.  But last night things began to shift. Under intense pressure from Washington and business leaders around the world, Riyadh now appears to be preparing to acknowledge that Mr Khashoggi was in fact killed inside the consulate.  The narrative they plan to present, according to the New York Times, is that the Saudi government ordered its operatives to interrogate Mr Khashoggi but that something went wrong and the journalist was accidentally killed.  Panicked spies then reportedly hid his body and launched a cover-up, unbeknownst to Mohammed bin Salman, the crown prince of Saudi Arabia and country's de facto leader. The person who will be blamed is described as "a Saudi intelligence official who was a friend of the crown prince".    The explanation has a clear appeal: it allows Saudi Arabia to concede (in the face of what appears to be overwhelming Turkish evidence) that Mr Khashoggi was killed, but shields the crown prince from responsibility.  The new Saudi narrative would protect Mohammed bin Salman, the crown prince Credit: REUTERS/Amir Levy/File Photo However, there are major holes in the story.  Among the 15-strong Saudi "hit team" who reportedly flew into Istanbul on private jets the

Paul Allen dies aged 65: Tributes to Microsoft co-founder who 'changed the world'
Paul Allen, who founded Microsoft alongside Bill Gates in 1975, has died at the age of 65.  Mr Allen, who suffered from non-Hodgkin lymphoma, was also a prominent philanthropist, donating billions to science, conservation and the arts.  Eight years after starting the company he received his first cancer diagnosis, but it was treated successfully, though it forced him to retire early from his role at Microsoft. He developed non-Hodgkin lymphoma in 2009, which had been in remission until it returned earlier this year.  In a statement released at the start of this month, Mr Allen said he planned to fight the disease "aggressively".  "A lot has happened in medicine since I overcame this disease in 2009. My doctors are optimistic that I will see good results from the latest therapies, as am I," he said.  Bill Gates, left, and Paul Allen chat during a basketball game in Seattle Credit: AP On Monday his sister Jody Allen called him a "remarkable individual on every level".  "While most knew Paul Allen as a technologist and philanthropist, for us he was a much loved brother and uncle, and an exceptional friend.   "For all the demands on his schedule, there was always time for family and friends.  "At this time of loss and grief for us - and so many others - we are profoundly grateful for the care and concern he demonstrated every day," she said.  Mr Gates led the tributes from the tech world, remembering Mr Allen as "one of my oldest and dearest friends."
