'I can't even look at the cover': the most disturbing books

Friday 10:51 GMT

Last week we asked you to share the books that have most shocked or disturbed you – and boy, you guys responded with a passion.

Tomimber. “The Kindly Ones by Jonathan Littell was hard work to read simply because it was so graphic and disturbing and will remain as one of my most thought-provoking books of war and its awful effects.” This book destroyed me for weeks; it’s upsetting just writing a couple of sentences about it.”

Why Bohemian Rhapsody should win the best picture Oscar

Friday 09:55 GMT

• The Favourite, Black Panther, Roma and more: read the rest of our best picture Oscar hustings. It took me a while to get round to watching Bohemian Rhapsody.

Like the song from which it takes its name, Bohemian Rhapsody is basically terrible, but in a bombastically entertaining way. One element deserves unequivocal praise – Rami Malek, who as Mercury manages to act his leotard off through the most outlandish fake choppers since Christopher Lee played Dracula (“I have four extra incisors,” he informs Queen, after they’ve hooted “Not with those teeth!” at his request to join them as their singer).

Climate change cause of most under-reported humanitarian crises, report finds

Friday 09:55 GMT

Climate change was responsible for the majority of under-reported humanitarian disasters last year, according to analysis of more than a million online news stories.

Sven Harmeling, the climate change lead for Care International, which commissioned the new report, said: “Not only are the people who live in the world’s poorest countries most vulnerable to climate change, but they are also the least equipped to address its increasing impacts. Media must not turn a blind eye to such crises and the role of climate change.”

Two senior Tories ready to resign if May fails to change Brexit direction

Friday 09:55 GMT

Justine Greening and Dominic Grieve say they would not be able to support government under no deal. Two senior Conservatives have said they are ready to resign from the party if it does not change its direction on Brexit, after three of their colleagues joined eight former Labour MPs in a breakaway group in parliament.

At a press conference on Wednesday, Wollaston pointed out that after the prime minister lost the meaningful vote on her Brexit deal by an unprecedented margin of 230 votes last month, she promised to seek a cross-party solution – but the first group she consulted was the hard Brexit European Research Group.

How do you deradicalise someone?

Friday 09:55 GMT

The case of teenager Shamima Begum has sparked a debate about how to deal with people linked to Islamic State - and how, if at all, to reintegrate them back into British society.

When she was tracked down in a Syrian refugee camp, the 19-year-old was described as an "indoctrinated IS bride" by the journalist who found her. And in an interview with the BBC, Ms Begum seemed aware of what might await her if she returned - "a deradicalisation course".

Antisemitism appears to have reached its worst levels since the second world war, Emmanuel Macron told Jewish community leaders on Wednesday, a day after thousands of people took to the streets in France to denounce hate crimes.

Friday 09:00 GMT

According to US Soccer’s newly filed public financial disclosure, Ellis was paid less than four different coaches who worked on the US men’s failed qualifying campaigns for the 2018 World Cup and the 2016 Olympics, including two youth coaches.

Andi Herzog, an assistant coach to Klinsmann who led the under-23 men’s team in a failed bid to qualify for the Rio Olympics and was fired shortly thereafter, also got paid more than Ellis last year at $363,534.

Tammy Bruce: No, ISIS brides aren't welcome – They deserve the same treatment as men who have embraced terror

Friday 09:00 GMT

An Alabama woman, who willingly left her family to join the Islamic State, also known as ISIS, is now begging to return home to the United States.

These women are, in fact, illustrating what the Western world insists on all the time: Women are capable of everything men are, from the heroic to evil. Our style and methods may be different, but whether it’s the creation of art, leading governments, teaching children, being a mom, or willingly participating in mass murder, terrorism and war, we are as brilliant, heroic, gentle, complex and, for some, as damaged and dangerous, as men.
