Algerian army chief calls for presidency to be vacated

Today 19:06 GMT

Algerian army chief of staff Ahmed Gaid Salah on Tuesday called for President Abdelaziz Bouteflika to be removed from office by using articles of the constitution.

Algeria's constitution council has held a special meeting after the army chief's call to remove the president, reported private TV channel El Bilad. If the constitutional council formally declares Bouteflika unfit for office, parliament's upper and lower house would then need to ratify the decision by a two-thirds majority.

Ross Barkley hits double as England blast five past Montenegro

Today 13:35 GMT

By the time they had finished it seemed barely believable that there was a brief while when England looked in danger of losing a qualifying match for the first time in nearly 10 years.

Raheem Sterling continued his own scoring run and perhaps this was the night when Ross Barkley, with two of the goals, started to feel like he could dominate, rather than decorate, international matches. True, it should not be overlooked that Montenegro are 46th in Fifa’s world rankings – two places below the Czech Republic side who were thrashed 5-0 at Wembley last Friday – but England’s response was still impressive after the jolt of finding themselves 1-0 behind.

Breakingviews - Apple stretches to take on Netflix, Amex, Disney

Today 02:24 GMT

That’s reflected in the market response – neither Apple’s shares, nor those of targets like Walt Disney, Netflix or the big banks, moved much.

The slowdown in iPhone sales justifies switching from device sales – which still make up almost $9 of every $10 Apple makes – to subscriptions. Nearly all the leading handset makers at the time – Blackberry, Nokia, Motorola – saw their businesses upended.

President Donald Trump on Monday signed a proclamation recognizing Israel’s hold over the disputed Golan Heights as he praised the special counsel after being cleared of collusion.

What We Do in the Shadows review – vampire TV adaptation has bite

Today 16:20 GMT

The 2014 vampire mockumentary What We Do in the Shadows has followed the example set by its subjects, and arisen from the great beyond of film to find a new final resting place on TV.

The feature-to-series adaptation makes for a less grisly conversion than the transmogrifications of the undead, too; the film’s cultural points of reference were rooted in the small screen, and turning over a story about bickering roommates to the medium that gave us The Real World feels like a fulfillment of dark destiny.

EU backs controversial copyright law

Today 16:20 GMT

"It's about making sure that ordinary people can upload videos and music to platforms like YouTube without being held liable for copyright - that responsibility will henceforth be transferred to the platforms," he said. However the campaign group Open Knowledge International described it as "a massive blow" for the internet.

"We now risk the creation of a more closed society at the very time we should be using digital advances to build a more open world where knowledge creates power for the many, not the few," said chief executive Catherine Stihler. Google said that while the latest version of the directive was improved, there remained "legal uncertainty".

Monday 23:39 GMT
