Thursday 02:24 GMT

Officers in Houston will now need to request a special exemption from its police chief’s office to conduct a no-knock raid, according to reports.

“The no-knock warrants are going to go away like leaded gasoline in this city,” Chief Art Acevedo announced during a town hall meeting Monday. The policy changes follow a drug raid on a home that turned into a deadly shootout in which two suspects were killed and five undercover officers were injured, the police chief said.

Thursday 19:06 GMT

Gwyneth Paltrow has counter-sued a retired optometrist who has taken legal action against her over a 2016 skiing accident.

Paltrow's case says that he was at fault and his lawsuit is an "attempt to exploit her celebrity and wealth". Mr Sanderson's lawsuit said the Oscar-winning-actress was skiing "out of control" when she hit him from behind on a beginner's slope on 26 February 2016. He said he was pushed into the snow and knocked unconscious, leaving him with a brain injury, short term memory loss and four broken ribs.

Dollar climbs despite weaker-than-expected data; Aussie gets knocked around

Friday 19:05 GMT

The U.S. dollar managed to climb higher on Thursday despite weaker-than-expected economic data, after the Federal Reserve’s January meeting minutes a day earlier failed to put another dovish damper on market sentiment.

Elsewhere, Canada’s dollar USDCAD, +0.3491%  was sliding against its U.S. rival after Bank of Canada Gov. Stephen Poloz said that “the limitations of monetary policy mean that it cannot solve all economic problems” and that the central bank continued to watch incoming data and developments in trade policies, according to a BOC press release.
