US to leave key Russia arms control treaty

Today 01:29 GMT

The last time the US withdrew from a major arms treaty was in 2002, when President George W Bush pulled the US out of the Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty, which banned weapons designed to counter ballistic nuclear missiles.

His administration's moves to set up a missile shield in Europe alarmed the Kremlin, and was scrapped by the Obama administration in 2009 to be replaced by a modified defence system in 2016.

Elena Ferrante: why am I always the last to leave a party?

Saturday 15:25 GMT

I mean real solitude, which rises up by surprise and lasts a few seconds, the solitude that derives not from lack of company or affection, but from our innate separateness from one another.

They can’t make up their minds and leave because they don’t want to think that the party will continue, that the closer friends are just getting comfortable and will gossip about the ones who have left. Or they’re the type who is always a little worried, who generally feels somewhat isolated, kept outside the circle of the hosts’ intimate friends.

Wembley: Shahid Khan withdraws 'divisive' offer to buy national stadium from FA

Thursday 14:31 GMT

Fulham owner Shahid Khan has withdrawn his offer to buy Wembley Stadium from the Football Association after the plan became "divisive".

"Wembley Stadium is an iconic venue that is revered around the world and it will continue to thrive under the ownership and direction of the FA.". Khan, who planned to move his NFL American football team - the Jacksonville Jaguars - to Wembley, said he wanted "to do right by everyone in a manner that strengthens the English game and brings people together, not divides them". He added: "Unfortunately, given where we are today, I've concluded that the outcome of a vote next week would be far from sufficient in expressing the broad support favoured by the FA chairman to sell Wembley Stadium.

Wembley will not be sold by the FA after Shahid Khan withdraws offer

Thursday 16:22 GMT

The Football Association’s proposed £600m sale of Wembley stadium to Shahid Khan has been unexpectedly cancelled after the owner of Fulham football club and the Jacksonville Jaguars NFL team suddenly withdrew.

That division was cited by Khan as his key reason for withdrawing the offer, which the FA announced first, explaining in a statement: “Mr Khan believed that his offer to buy Wembley Stadium would release funds to help improve community football facilities in England and that it would be well received by all football stakeholders. “At a recent meeting with Mr Khan he expressed to us that, without stronger support from within the game, his offer is being seen as more divisive than it was anticipated to be and has decided to withdraw his proposal.”
