Kalashnikov statue to be altered after sculptor's monumental error

Today 10:51 GMT

A metal bas-relief behind a statue of Kalashnikov depicts the AK-47 and other weapons all supposedly designed by the engineer, who died in 2013.

Workers have removed part of a new monument to Mikhail Kalashnikov, the inventor of the Soviet Union’s AK-47 assault rifle, after eagle-eyed Russians noticed that it mistakenly depicted a German second world war weapon. The monument to the creator of one of Russia’s best known export brands was unveiled in central Moscow three days ago to much fanfare.

Hack at U.S. market regulator displays persistent government cyber woes

Today 10:50 GMT

A major computer hack at America’s top stock market regulator is the latest sign that data stored in the highest reaches of the U.S. government remains vulnerable to cyber attacks, despite efforts across multiple presidencies to limit high-profile breaches that are so frequent many consider them routine.

The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), America’s chief stock market regulator, said on Wednesday that cyber criminals may have used data stolen last year to make money in the stock market, making it the latest federal agency to grab headlines for losing control of its data.

Iraqi Kurdistan is set to hold a referendum on its independence

Today 10:51 GMT

Chris McGrath / Getty Images. This long-held ambition could take one step closer to becoming reality Monday when Iraqi Kurds are scheduled to vote in a historic independence referendum.

"The United States strongly opposes the Iraqi Kurdistan Regional Government’s referendum on independence," State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said Wednesday. The U.S. sees the possibility of a fracturing Iraq as a destabilizing force in an already unsettled region politically — not to mention hampering the ongoing fight against ISIS.

Even in Staid Germany, Protest Parties Poised to Gain Ground

Today 10:50 GMT

Support for Germany’s two major parties could fall below 60% combined, while protest parties of the far right and far left could win 20% of the vote between them, a pattern of polls suggests.

In swaths of Continental Europe, the established center-right and center-left parties have suffered far more dramatic collapses, while populist movements from the nationalist right to the anticapitalist left have become strong enough to aspire to power.

Today 09:56 GMT

They were ordinary Mexicans who knew from experience that during a crisis such as an earthquake, it’s better to do things yourself than to rely on the government for help.

NFL pushes hard for London team but may encounter resistance at home

Today 10:50 GMT

While league officials remain encouraged by the regular sellouts of their London games, including all four this year, they want to play as many as eight games – matching a team’s regular season home schedule – before making a decision on London.

Getting coaches and players to see travelling to London as no different than going to, say, Seattle might yet be the most critical piece in moving a team to the UK.

Mexico may now have too much earthquake aid

Today 09:57 GMT

At the foot of Mirna Cano Cozar’s mattress on the gymnasium floor, volunteers circled young children for a singalong, and then held a session of drawing with crayons.

“What we’re hearing right now is that Mexico City is pretty much, for the moment, covered,” said Melissa Martinez, who started a volunteer relief group (Voluntarios@JuntosSismoCDMX on Facebook and Twitter) to help divert aid to places that need it. “The shelters that were set up were mostly empty,” said Martinez, who is a professor of migration studies in Mexico City.
